RE: Voltage Drop - NOT Park Problem

I got E1 on my Dometic thermostat when I was running (by mistake) on low voltage.

RE: Awning material replacement questions

I replaced our 20' awning this year with a Shadepro vinyl one from About $350CDN - ~ $250US. Our RV is as tall as an RV can be so for some smaller RV I'm sure two people could do it. For ours, THREE people were necessary and a FOURTH helped for about 5 minutes when we slid the new awning in the channel and roller. Because the RV is so tall, it needs a third person to hold up the awning otherwise there's too much of a bend in it to thread it on. Hardest thing was getting the old awning off - lots of silicone spray.

RE: Space Storms Destroy Elon Musk's Starlink Satellites

One of the joys of living in the countryside outside cities. Earlier this year I upgraded from DSL 5mbps down 600K up for $15 less than I'm paying now. Much cheaper and faster in cities.

RE: The impact of Ian...

The park we're going to next month in Eustis (central Florida) wasn't damaged at all.

RE: Two blow outs in one day

If your tires are stamped Made in China dump them, they're junk. They're low quality.I completely disagree. I have Sailun S637s and they're very good. Also stamped Made in China. width=640

RE: tire time

I have Sailun 637s and run them at 80psi. That's plenty to support the weight of my tri-axle toy hauler.

RE: Space Storms Destroy Elon Musk's Starlink Satellites

OLD news and only applies to just launched birds. I read about it way back when it happened on

RE: what size inverter.

I forgot to mention that while a 300w inverter is fine for low current stuff, we have a built-in Onan 5500w for the high current stuff.

RE: Smaller Propane Tanks

I have propane at the stick house so my grill is plumbed into that. No cylinders to refill (well, there are two 400L cylinders but the truck comes to fill them). For my 5er, I have two 30lb tanks. Both have "aged out" (RV is 11 years old) so I have the extra expense of new tanks. That's one thing you don't have to worry about when you go on an exchange program. We RV in the winter and for the few weeks it's cool in the south, we use about one tank a week.

RE: what size inverter.

I have a 300 watt inverter for my TVs, stereo and phone charging. I wouldn't go any smaller.

RE: Finally replaced my propane regulator

This is an image of the two check valves I took out of the regulator. The female end is inverted flare and the male end isn't. width=640 I need an adapter that is 1/4" male flare and 3/8" NPT female.

RE: Finally replaced my propane regulator

Pigtails may have valves.I wondered if that was the case for my pigtails. I think before I take it all apart again, I'll put one tank in and see if propane flows out of the other pigtail.

Finally replaced my propane regulator

I was finding it difficult to find another MEGR253 (in stock - lots of places list it but don't stock it) so when a CAMCO regulator fell into my hands I said "OKAY". Anyway, it had two 1/4" brass adapters on the inputs; I took them out and my existing hoses fit perfectly. Lots of hose wiggling but I got it installed and it works. YAY! Almost... Today I had a close look at the "adapters" and discovered that they are one way valves - they're what stops propane from the other cylinder escaping through the pigtail of the empty cylinder I'm trying to change. I've thought about leaving it as it and being very careful to close both cylinders when one needs filling, but that's inconvenient and possibly dangerous. So now I'm searching for 3/8" to 1/4" brass adapter to put on the end of my pigtails then reinstall the 1/4" one way valves in the regulator. Now I'm trying to understand what's an inverted flare versus NPT. Grrr!

RE: I thought the RV market might be getting soft. I was wrong.

I have a 2011 Voltage TH 3950 that I'm wondering about selling. Too old?

RE: Trailer sway milestone 377mb

"Have you weighed the truck and trailer when loaded for travel" I'm guessing that OP has not responded to any of the questions about the weight that weight is in fact the problem.

RE: Trailer sway milestone 377mb

Whenever I hear someone complaining about a towing problem with a BIG 5er with a 3/4 ton, I immediately think OVERLOAD. You're so close (over?) the limits that the difference full tanks can make over empty tanks is enough to make it sway.

RE: Any issues having slides on both sides?

I once stayed in a park where there wasn't room to put my awning out, but never not enough room for all slides. (on edit: there was one site we were assigned where the next door neighbour had his trailer on the line and his street slide extended over our pad - we couldn't get onto that site even with the slides in. Office gave us a different site) OTOH, when we overnight in a parking lot somewhere, there isn't enough room to put out our street side slides. Our galley slide (curbside) doesn't go out any further than our front steps - we need steps to get in and out. 5er toy hauler Often there isn't enough room to put our ramp down - we need to unload motorcycles before we park.

RE: How safe is etransfer - selling big items?

Incidentally, I've always been leery of taking cash as it's so easy to counterfeit - Canadian $$ not so much but US $$ easier. Most I've taken in cash was $6K for a motorcycle I was selling.
