RE: Inflatable Kayaks

Any thoughts on these? Thinking about a two man version. We could occasionally use some sort of boat but don't want to haul a full size one around. Nothing too energetic paddling around lakes and such. We have a fold-boat at home but it's just too much trouble to haul around with the motor and fuel. Need to sell it actually. I'll let you know my thoughts after Memorial Day... My wife was just on Facebook Market Place yesterday and found 2, almost new - 2 person inflatable Kayaks for sale closet us. We went to look at them and they sure looked NEW.... no stains, no discoloration, no nothing... So, we picked them both up for a total of $200.00... We will try them out in 2 weeks

RE: SRW vs DRW

I agree that the " NUMBERS" look to be good for a SRW, BUT . . . The Braking would/Could be an issue... Upgrade the RV to Disc Brakes and I think that would be a great insurance policy...

RE: Front Landing Gear

When I had the electric/telescoping landing gear I used a dry lube... Didn't want sand and grit attaching to the lube and binding anything...

RE: New Full Body Paint Job

WOW ! ! ! That shows how much a paint job can totally change the entire look of a trailer ! Did you pick the design, or did they have many to choose from? I am just curious as my friend has a TT he wants to do that to at some point in the near future. IF this is your first Full Body Paint, YOU WILL LOVE IT ! ! ! They are sooooooooo easy to care for ! Enjoy it, FTG

RE: No City Water Pressure

agree with the 2 thoughts 1 - filling fresh water tank 2 - bad check valve No to both questions....The city water is connected to city inlet. Filling reserve tank is a separate fill on opposite side of my RV. I am also not getting water when trying reserve tank with water pump. All is leading me to think there is a kink in the main line somewhere? How would that be possible when the RV hasn't moved since the fall. It sounds like the check valve at the city water inlet.. very common failure.. See google search - "Dear Jerry, The problem you are referring to is somewhat common, and here are a few things to consider when there is a flow restriction in the incoming water connection. First, make sure the flow is good through the hose itself, to verify that the inner lining of the hose hasn’t separated and blocked the flow. Second, most city water connections have a filter/washer installed where the hose connects. Remove this filter/washer and check its condition. If it’s plugged up (which they frequently are) clean it or just replace it. On occasion, the one-way valve in the city water inlet on some RVs breaks, and the pieces can block the water flow. I’m not sure which connection you have in your coach, but it will have some sort of check valve, and that could be plugged or faulty. Third is the filter for the incoming city water. There are numerous types of filters on the market, and having two filters in the system is not unusual. The primary filter for incoming water is most likely just a particulate filter, but other filter elements that are finer could have been installed. The ice maker filter is a much finer filter for removing impurities from your drinking water. If you have never changed the filter element, now would be a good time to make certain they’re OK. While I’m not certain about your particular coach from here, some RVs were equipped with a water control system, Coachmen among them. There were a number of valves which controlled how water was distributed throughout the system, winterizing settings, water tank filling, and in some cases, water system drains. Make sure all your valves are in the correct setting."

RE: Slide-out topper replacement

I know its not the same but..... my bro in law and I swapped out his awning ourselves.. We watched a YouTube video and it was spot on ! When we made the swap, we kept an iPad close by to watch the video in case we got confused.... Glad your getting it handled... We did the awning on that side 2 years ago. That side of the trailer faces south where we park at the house. The three slide covers on the other side look good after 11 years. We did the same thing with the laptop and watching videos. It's pretty much the same process but there is no slot to line up to get the cover to slide out of the tube. Good news is where I cut the notch out is on the top of the curved end piece. You can't see it from below. Would you say that now that you did that, you could ADD one to a trailer with no large issues?

RE: Rv-ers prefer Duramax?

RE: Rv-ers prefer Duramax?

I took a road trip from SE PA to Cleveland ( about 7 hours ) this week not towing... On my return, I tried to count what I saw... Hot Shots: 4 Rams -3 Fords - 1 GMC Larger Cargo trailers-2 axle, clearly HD for a business: 4 Fords - 4 GMC/Chevy - 2 Ram Travel Trailers: 2 Ram - 2 Ford - 2 GMC/Chevy Fifth Wheels - 1 Ram - 1 Ford.. BOTH were new RV's being pulled by RV Transport Co. And I am 100% sure I missed some., trying to talk on phone, drive at 75, stay awake, and count all at the same time ...:B

RE: How to boost charge AGM batteries in storage?

How do you charge at the 20% rate with a 10a charger? I do not have that answer.... all I can say is that I called Lifeline, told them what I was purchasing ( 2 of the group 31T). and they told me what worked the best... They were great to deal with and easy to talk to.. I have the older G7200 - this is what is says about the AGM setting - 2.) 12V Cold/AGM Mode For charging 12-volt batteries in cold temperatures below 50ºF (10ºC) or AGM batteries. When selected, a blue LED will illuminate. 14.8V | 7.2A | Up To 230Ah Batteries

RE: How to boost charge AGM batteries in storage?

I called Lifeline when I first was thinking of switching to them and asked what they thought was best... they told me about a NOCO charger/maintainer .. I purchased one of these - NOCO Genius 10 You set it to 6 volt...12volt...flooded...AG... whatever.. I turn off my battery switch, unplug from Shore power and put it on my 2 Lifelines... Like Ron Popiele used to say- "Set it and Forget It"

RE: Rv-ers prefer Duramax?

Well here in the PNW I see mostly Fords and Rams. Here in the NE and East as well.with a few GM's sprinkled in I started my towing with a GM and it was the worst... NOW I am sure things are different now, but at that time, I was fed up... My dad had GM's and loved them, never had a problem with them either, although they were NOT used to tow, they were grocery getters and bar runners. Fast forward 40 years, I think ALL 3 are close to the same platform and its all up to personal preference now.
