RE: Battery replacements in 2013 Chevy Silverado 2500 Diesel

OP Here, I had both batteries tested today at Advance Auto Parts. Both checked out okay so I guess I'm going to wait and just keep getting them tested. Probably may consider replacing before cold weather. Thanks! Dave Did Advance disconnect the wires from each battery and test w/o them? Just asking cuz it could be possible that may get a good read when it's actually not. But that being said, given the current batteries are 7 maybe 8 years old (time of actual manure date), why not just go ahead and replace them now and not worry wether or not they won't start the truck? You only need to take one wire off of one battery to test them separately. My wonderful Ford dealer had no clue that they needed two separate tests. The technician did disconnect something and ran the test on both batteries. I would go ahead and replace them now but financially if I can wait a little it would be much better for me as I'm on a fixed disability income and a $400 expense is much better when budgeted and planned for.

RE: The better 5th wheeler?

I hear some good things regarding the Grand Design Momentum toy haulers. That was before they were taken over by Winnebago. Now the customer service is horrible. I cannot advise anyone to buy a Grand Design product. Dave

RE: Battery replacements in 2013 Chevy Silverado 2500 Diesel

Every Advance, Auto Zone, and even the little one man shop battery places install batteries for free. Granted, they must be charging enough for the batteries to cover their efforts but have you checked any of these places? At 7 years I would replace both of them too. They are both their under the hood. It's not a complex job but you have to be very careful you don't short anything out. OP Here, I have checked both and because there are two and fender supports need removed they will not replace mine. Dave

Battery replacements in 2013 Chevy Silverado 2500 Diesel

My 2013 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Diesel has two batteries. They are original and therefore at least 7 years old. My concern is that they die in a most inopportune time. The one battery is in the normal place up top by the fender but the second battery is buried somewhere. I know that I should replace both batteries at the same time as they are a parallel connection. Has anyone replaced there batteries themselves? How complicated is it? Where exactly is the 2nd battery located? I've searched online and cannot find anything on replacing the 2nd battery. My dealer wants $55 replacement fee for each battery plus $169 for each battery. A total of $475 including tax. I understand that the replacement is more difficult for the 2nd battery but is $110 labor fee a bit much? Thanks in advance for your help Dave

RE: Hey Marcus...I’m still not happy

You will get told that Covid-19 is delaying everything BUT as mentioned Amazon has delivered 3 packages to me in the last week all within 3 days of order. I ordered a hitch over two weeks ago through a RV dealer and it still hasn't shipped and no time frame is offered. Same hitch on Amazon offering 3 day delivery. If I hadn't already paid for it I would just order through Amazon. Dave

RE: Battery toggle switch

Battery disconnect switch. there is still some paracidic draw when turned off, CO, lp, radio. Exactly why Installed this right off the battery. Battery to switch to rest of 5th wheel. Eliminates all parasitic draw. Blue Sea Systems 6006 Battery Disconnect My 5th wheel is in a storage yard so not always plugged in. Dave

RE: Had a water leak

When I winterize I pump the "pink stuff" into system and the outside shower is the first thing I open and have the antifreeze come out. I then do bathroom including toilet then kitchen. If it is not to big of a hassle I would just fix it and be done with it. You may not use it now but things happen and I'd rather have it then not IMHO. Good luck! Dave

RE: Toll roads or not

In Pennsylvania they eliminated toll collectors and everything is now either EZ Pass or bill in mail based on license plate. If you use the bill by mail the cost is significantly more money. There have been issues with the bill by mail such as late bills excess charges wrong person billed etc. My EZ Pass has been flawless. If you elect toll roads then I would definitely go EZ Pass. Dave

RE: How to get the Television to work in bedroom

Turn off antenna booster and select cable input on tv and scan for channels. I do have the antenna booster turned off and I thought I did the scan for channels but will try that again

RE: How to get the Television to work in bedroom

Ok, stupid question, is the park cable working? Yes cable works fine on living room TV just not bedroom.

How to get the Television to work in bedroom

I have a 2017 5th wheel and mounted the TV in the bedroom. There was already one in living room. I have to coax connectors (one cable and one satellite) and the button for antenna boost right above bedroom TV as well as power. I hook a coax from campground pedestal to the coax connecter in side of 5th wheel marked cable and I connected a coax from connector right above bedroom TV to cable and then to TV. No picture. What am I doing wrong? Dave

RE: RVing with no mechanical capability

You hire someone to fix stuff in your home. You have a car that you don't repair yourself. It's the same thing. Things inside the RV that brake down don't usually leave you stranded, fridge, heater, water pump, water heater can always get fixed later. x 2 I'm 60 y/o with a bad heart and slight stroke damage to my left side. I've had 3 back surgeries. I still RV. If it is something that I can do myself I will if not I hire a technician to address it. I also have a brother that is very good at helping when needed. I have replaced cooling unit on refrigerator, replaced roof AC, plumbing fixes etc. with help from brother or son in laws. I'm not sure where you live but Google RV mobile repair and see what is around for you to choose from. If you purchase from a dealer check them out as well. When you encounter a problem you can take pictures provide year make and model of RV and describe your problem in Tech Issues. You can also post asking if anyone knows of a reputable repair service in a location. I would not let this stop me from traveling. Dave

RE: Help with two Easy Dutch Oven Dessert recipes

Is the Dutch oven well seasoned? One-third of the coals underneath, two-thirds on top. It came pre seasoned do I need to season it again?

Thanks for your help! Dave

RE: Wheel Bearing Repack

I just had my bearings done last week while being state inspected. The seals failed on 3 out of 4 wheels so they took everything apart and cleaned everything as the grease was everywhere including brakes. Installed new seals repacked bearings adjusted brakes for $400. It took them 4 hours to complete. Dave

I just bought a 2021 Grand Design Reflection 311BHS. It has a hitch receiver and no bumper. It came with a sewer hose tube already attached underneath just about at the mid point near the sewer discharge tube. Are you sure yours doesn't have one? I have the 2017 GD Reflection and that is where mine is as well BUT it will only accommodate ONE Rhinoflex hose as it is very short. These holders come in two lengths Grand Design to save a few bucks chose the less expensive short one. I want to replace or add a holder but my health is preventing me from getting underneath my 5th wheel. If I ever get my health back I'd love to do what Barney did for his. For now a have a separate plastic bin with locking lid that holds my elbow and 2nd hose and keep it in the storage compartment. Dave
