RE: Mopeka Products

We monitor two 20# tanks. When they're working, they're great. But when we take out a tank to refill it, getting the monitor to work after putting the tank back is sometimes fussy. All things considered, we'd get them again.

RE: 1 ton SRW debate

I realize this is not the question your raised: But I would not want to carry an Eagle Cap 850 on an SRW when you could choose the stability of a dually.

RE: Weights. Am I missing something?

Based on those numbers, I can only carry a very small (ie 1/2" ton) TC. How did you come up with a 1000 lb TC? And what does CCC stand for?

2020 Truck Camper Magazine Calendar

Have you seen the new calendar? I think it's the best yet. (No, I don't have a picture in it.) Can anyone give me a link to the stories behind the pictures? I looked at the stories a while back. But now I can't find them.

RE: DRW back to SRW

The new generation SRW trucks have payloads of 4000#+...this may be a game changer.For me, a DRW is about stability as much as about payload. I drove a new Ford 350 SRW with a Northern Lite Sportsman and was not satisfied with the stability. So when we bought our rig, the truck had to be a dually.

RE: Atwood Thermostat HFH2000

Don't think you will like digital. Each time you'll try to use it - the batteries will be dead.I use lithium batteries and have not had a problem with dead batteries. Alkaline batteries do not last well in cold temperatures.

RE: Funny, sad and embarrassing.....

When propane runs out, the furnace fan will run continuously till it kills the batteries.Our fan shuts off if there's no propane.

RE: Drawer Latches Failing

how are they failing? this is what we use. (maybe not the same brand) is what we use. Sometimes the latch mechanism does not pop out when the drawer is opened and has to be pried out manually. Or the latch mechanism breaks and the pieces fall out.

Replacing 12-volt batteries with 6-volt

Have you replaced two 12-volt batteries in parallel with two 6-volt batteries in series to improve ampere hours? Were the results satisfactory? Please elaborate. Was the rewiring difficult?

Drawer Latches Failing

Our camper came with latches built into the drawer tracks (to keep the drawers closed when the camper is in motion) . One by one they failed. So we had plastic latches installed. These quickly failed too. When I discovered that they were failing because they were not aligned properly when installed, I redid all of them with proper alignment. That helped a lot. But now some of them are failing as well. Have you found any latches that are reliable?

RE: Figuring this power stuff has my head spinning

As for the size of the batteries. That is a function of total watts stored. (amp hours times volts) Some numbers In all cases I'm talkin 12 volt battery packs Group 24 about 75 AH Group 27/29 just shy/over 100 AH Group 31 About 120-130 GC-2 pairs (Two 6 volt) 220 Amp hours So each six volt battery is between a 29 and a 31 in weight and total volume.. Plus they are a bit taller so you don't need to water as often And yes 1 12 volt (likely a 29) to a pair of GC-2 gets you from about 20-25 usable amp; hours to 100-115 That's a SERIOUS upgrade. Why does a 29 have 100 AH but only 20-25 usable (20 percent) and two GC-2s have 220 AH with 100-115 usable (50 percent)?

RE: Figuring this power stuff has my head spinning

I personally don’t like the idea of depending on a generator to run the AC, because that typically means you’re going to need a bigger generator, and you’ll want to run it a lot more than for charging a battery, and at a higher load on the generator, so it will be making more noise and consuming more fuel.Then how do you run the AC?

RE: My WFCO finally kicked the bucket

if your batteries get low on water (and become undercharged) from being on constant charging, you have problemsWhen I replaced cheap chargers with quality ones, I no longer had a problem with battery water boiling away.

RE: Battery Transfer pump for antifreeze

Two travel trailers ago, I used the blow method. To my sad disappointment though, the outside shower head on the end of the hose still split over the winter. Replacing it was easy, but after that I returned back to the Antifreeze method and been doing so ever since. Had you blown compressed air through that shower head? If you did, why would it freeze?

RE: Battery Transfer pump for antifreeze

I use a manual pump to winterize my class c, works ok, but thought I would see if a battery powered transfer pump that would connect my RV was available. So far I haven't found one - anyone tried such?After blowing out the lines with compressed air, I disconnect a pump fitting to let any remaining water drain. Then we open all the faucets and pour antifreeze in the toilet and all the drains. No pump needed.Would someone please explain why a pump is needed for winterizing? What's wrong with my method?
