RE: AGM Deep Cycle batteries

The converter is a WFCO 55 amp. I’m sure it’s original In a 2009 Cedar Creek. Seems to me this converter will not start to even charge if the temps are really low.

RE: AGM Deep Cycle batteries

I asked 2 questions but have 1 more. Are they compatible with any “converter”?

AGM Deep Cycle batteries

My flooded batteries are toast in the trailer. I have been buying AGM starting batteries for boat and truck and like them. No maintenance and no corrosion. Thinking of going to two. 6 Volt AGM batteries for the trailer. Would this be a good choice? How do they handle freezing temperatures?

Now we have another very healthy family member with a possible bad reaction to the vax. She is 17 with no other health conditions and is Beautifully slim. 4 days ago developed a painful blood clot in her leg!! Lots of swelling from the knee down. Fortunately it has diminished on its own.

18 in our family. All have had the shots except the two youngest and the wife and I, the two oldest. We are in our 70’s. Two daughters had bad reactions to the shots, one has ongoing suffering and has been to emergency 4 times. Doctors quietly confirm it’s a reaction to the jabs. All have had Covid except the wife and I!! Go figure.

RE: Additional fuel tank

And I might add. I have built auxiliary tanks for pickups from salvaged round barrel like aluminum tanks from the side of semi’s. We cut them to achieve a flat bottom. Then use 3/16 aluminum plate for the bottom. When we cut them open we find “dirt” and other **** that can only come from the purchase fuel at commercial pumps.

RE: Additional fuel tank

Grit for the tiny cost of an “in-line” filter and the costly repairs that come with injectors it is a cheap cautionary thing to do. Regarding filtering from the pumps. From my experience, yes they do sell us dirt. The sooner you catch it the better. I have filled at some stations where the flow is extremely slow. Why do you think that is? I’d suggest plugged filters drawing **** from the bulk tanks. All my fuel goes into auxiliary tank. I have seen dirt right in the fuel line fittings at the injectors on a Duramax. You can’t be to careful when it comes to the need for clean fuel in today’s trucks.

RE: Additional fuel tank

Just be certain to install an “in-line” filter between auxiliary tank and main tank. I use a 3481 inline filter. It has threaded fittings on each end so you can adapt to any size hose you use.

Our hospitals have been in a trying to “catch up” state for many years. Before “the covid flu”, wait times for a new hip has been 2 years plus for a decade. We tend to not notice unless it affects us personally and for many “history” starts every morning.

RE: Where are all of the snowbirds?

Because of reports of others (early December) going, and we’re not asked, we waited because of the desire to have Christmas with our kids and grandkids. So we tried on the 31st and were turned back. Officers blamed their president.

RE: Will my WFCO 55 amp over charge?

The trailer does have a battery cut off switch. It’s off and I just checked to see if it charges the batteries when plugged in. It does. So draw on them shouldn’t be an issue.

RE: Will my WFCO 55 amp over charge?

Was thinking then perhaps I’ll just plug it in for a day every two weeks. ??

RE: Will my WFCO 55 amp over charge?

Normally I do take them ( 4 6volts) out but as I get older for some reason they get heavier!! And if Biden can figure it out that an un-jabbed Canadian snowbird isolated in his trailer is no more dangerous than the millions streaming in from the south to stay. Maybe will drive south for two months and spend some money.

RE: Will my WFCO 55 amp over charge?

Don’t know how well a solar would work here in the frozen short sun lite days of the north.

Or can I leave it plugged in all winter as a maintainer? This is on a 09 Cedar Creek 5th.

RE: Spring suspension issues

I or they would never do this on a customers trailer. In that case we would cut the hangers off and weld on new ones.

RE: Spring suspension issues

6000 lb. I phoned Lippert. They agreed that there should be more spread than what I have. We agreed on an simple economic solution. I’ll keep the springs but will drill new holes at the front and back hangers. Adding an inch at both locations.

RE: Spring suspension issues

Well I guess I’d consult myself as that’s what I own. A trailer repair shop! I’ve noted that the distance between axels can vary as much as 8 inches depending on the brand and size of the trailers. This trailer as I stated started out with 4 leafs per spring. I increased them to 5. I’ve put about 30,000 miles on them and they are looking tired. I think the trailer is about 12,000 lb. until she loads it?? Regarding scrubbing, (which I’m careful to avoid) adding 2 to 3 inches I doubt will be an issue.

RE: Spring suspension issues

Why in the world did Lippert build some of these trailers with such a small gap between the tires?? And this is the size of tire stated on the vin sticker. Was thinking if I can’t find shorter springs then perhaps because there is considerable meat on the hangers I may just drill new holes one inch back on the rear hangers and one inch forward on the front hangers?? That way I will increase the gap by 2 inches. I should have mentioned in my original post that another concern is the shackles at the equalizer are vertical and damaging the strap and the equalizer. All pictures I see on the equalizer sites shows them at a slight angle. Again a sloppy job when originally built.

RE: Spring suspension issues

Well I wondered about getting shorter springs but was told none existed??
