RE: Wall mount AC Leaking

Most modern window ac's are drain is slanted to drain to the condenser coil to be slinged into to it and evaporate while adding efficiency to the window unit. That means if you place it on a level surface it would drain as designed. Most problems occur when crud, leaves, bugs, or other junk trap in the drain channel. The other issue is the condenser coil getting dirty, not allowing the condensate to penetrate. I had a class B motorhome that used a window AC and it laid in the compartment flat and never had any issues with the drain. Of course as a HVAC tech I routinely did my annual service.

RE: Camping around DC area

In the chance those parks are full due to Labor Day weekend look at Smallwood State Park. They are not full hook-up but close enough for DC.

RE: 7 Pin Connector From Truck to Trailer

Since I have been using electrical contact grease on my connectors I haven't had any problems with error messages. It helps prevent corrosion and aids the conductivity of the pins.

RE: How many people have cameras on trailer

An observation camera is like using a rear view mirror. I don't know of anyone that doesn't want to know what is directly behind them when traveling down the road. Knowing if someone is tailgating in your blind spot behind the TT can aid in preventing an accident. Can't tell you how many times, though my directional is on, that someone tailgating in the blind spot, decides to go around me just as I change lanes. One time driving a Class B with my boat behind a driver attempted to change to the right lane to pass me as I was changing the the right lane after passing a slower moving vehicle. Of course my right signal was on, but it didn't seem to matter to this driver as he continued to pass, squeezing between me and the guard rail. So as I see it, an observation camera is very useful. Now for backing up into a campsite. Let's just say my wife doesn't have to get out of the truck to spot me. Backing up with a camera is a marriage saver, and makes the camp trip less stressful for me...and the wife. You may need to practice a few times with a spotter to learn and gain confidence using it, but it is well worth the cost.

RE: Black holding tank censors

Been doing this with the last 3 RV's. Do this along with your regular tank chemicals after each dump. The Recipe: Dissolve two (2) cups of the water softener in a gallon of hot water. Then, pour the solution down the drain into the empty tank. Use two cups of softener for each wastewater tank in your RV. The tank's drain valve should be closed otherwise the softened water will just drain out. Then use the tank(s) normally until it is full and drain it normally. Add a cup of laundry detergent to the black (commode) water tank at the same time you add water softener. This will help clean the tank. The gray water tanks should already contain soap through normal use.

RE: Where's this brown water come from?

Just yesterday I anted to find why my water smelled bad, so I drained and flushed my HW tank to see if it was coming from there. Sure enough, the water came out from the tank drain plug brown and stinky. It seems accordingly to my HW tank Manf instructions I should have been doing this each year before storage. I used a cut-off washing machine hose to insert into the tank and hit it with full water pressure. Lots of "stuff" came out to my surprise.

RE: Tap into my 30 amp Dryer outlet for an RV outlet???

Considering your gas dryer also uses 120 volts for the "gas valve" (not referred to as an element) you may need some fine tuning on electrical circuits. The 30 amp outlet for your dryer is 240 consisting of two hot, and one ground wire where as your RV uses one hot, one ground and one neutral wire for 120 volts. It would be better to add one 30 amp 120 volt CB and the proper wire to an RV outlet and much safer it would be. The RV outlet polarity must be wired correct as well. You can google RV outlet wiring schematics and if you are not sure, well?

RE: Wobbly dinette table

If you have checked what was said above and still wobbly you may just have to get use to it as these tables mounted on two posts are always a bit wobbly. It's inherent of the mounting hardware.

RE: flying j and receipts

When I don't get a receipt rather than rant I take out my cell phone and snap a pic of the pump screen.

RE: Generator while traveling for travel trailer

I have in the past ran my fridge on LP while traveling remembering most times to turn it off while fueling. I don't anymore as I found the fridge will stay cold for a 7 hour and even up to a 10 hour trip with it in the off position. So I don't see the value of running a portable generator on a TT taking the chance that the fuel cap will stay tightly closed. Or fuel spilling out the vented cap. Keep in mind that portable generators weren't designed for this purpose. As for the AC, as was stated already, they will cool the TT quickly.
