RE: Furrion Chill 14.5 & 15.5 unit's both use 15.4 amps?

AEON is building small RV's with a mini-split heat pump that will run on battery power but their units are very expensive and intended for the off road boondocking crowd. Wish I could afford one. Google their website if you want to check it out.

RE: current diesel fuel pricing

A 42 gallon barrel of crude oil yields approx 20 gallons of gasoline and only about 10 gallons of diesel. In the past several decades, the demand for diesel has has grown more, relatively, than the demand for gasoline. It's a supply and demand thing.

RE: You tube Fulltimers getting squeezed

Seems the majority of them have more and more commercials before the video even starts. Who wants to sit through that.

RE: Cleaning Water Jugs

I store mine filled with chlorinated city water. When I'm going to use them again, I empty rinse and refill.

RE: Tankless Hot Water Heater (Gas)

Many of the newest RV's come with the Truma Aqua Go which gives instant hot water. It has a one liter reservoir of hot water so it doesn't need time to sense the water flow. I think it has become the new standard.

RE: Silver Bullet Hose

Manufacturer says do not leave it pressurized except when using it so not recommended for continuous hookup. I use one for filling the water tank and for washing down. It's important to note on the label that it is approved for potable water, some of them are not.

RE: Bedding in overhead beds in T/C

I'm 80. Still do fitted sheets. Making the overhead bed isn't fun but it's doable. We're starting to look at class C's or B+'s with walkaround beds. Getting a little tired of slithering in and out of the overhead but we'll miss the offroad possibilities.

RE: Is support needed when storing for an extended time?

Probably depends on your camper but we have never used anything but the jacks to hold it up when off the truck for the last 13 years. Did you ever notice that the new campers in RV dealers lots or RV shows are just standing on the jacks while people are traipsing through them?

RE: Making A Warmer Truck Camper Bed

Our 200 watt matress pad heater uses only 4 ampere hours to run for a 15 minute warm up and then you get to climb into a nice warm bed.

RE: Making A Warmer Truck Camper Bed

X2 on heated mattress pad. We use it to preheat the bed before we get in. If boondocking, running on battery, we use an inverter to preheat for about 15 minutes.

We don't leave south florida until it starts getting hot in April.
