RE: DEF fluid

Do you think everyone on this forum has a trailer? A great many of us have self propelled RV's (truck campers or motorhomes) therefore in our case there are no "tow vehicles" involved.

RE: Propane Refills

It seems that we are discussing both volume (5 GAL of space in a standard DOT tank) and weight (approx. 20 LBS LPG in a standard DOT tank). You should get about 20 lbs in a tank which makes the tank 80% full or about 4 gallons. The mix of propane/butane can vary which slightly affects the weight of a given volume of the liquified gas.

RE: 12 volt issue?

My2022 Northern Lite truck camper came with a 12 volt TV. Also a 12 volt DVD player. It works great. Don't need an inverter now just to watch TV or a DVD movie.

RE: Flying J RV discount Card

I haven't fueled in a truck stop for years. Their prices for diesel are always notably higher than local service stations.

RE: heat and Li batteries.

Lithium iron phosphate batteries are lithium ion batteries. Same thing. The iron and phosphate are in the form of ions.

RE: Season soon to end - putting RV into storage

Do not leave windows/vents open in Florida. I speak from experience. Florida air is so humid that you'll come back to a mold disaster. Keep it closed up with as much Damp Rid as you can manage.

RE: Mopkka tank Sensors

I have a truck camper with difficult to remove DOT tanks. They are so high off the ground that I have to carry a step ladder to reach them. That is the reason I installed the Mopeta sensors but Their batteries are so short lived that they are pretty much useless for me. It's a huge job to remove both tanks just to replace batteries. I no longer use those sensors. When the first tank runs out I switch to the other tank and I know it's time for a refill. Thumbs down on Mopeta.

RE: Lithium Battery heater

Major brands of Lifepo4 batteries are available with internally heated models (eg. Battle born, Lithionics). If you're doing an initial setup, this would be the way to go.

RE: folding utility trailer

Rediculous, You need a second trailer to carry all those pieces of sidewall.

RE: New camper without 12 volt fridge

Just bought a brand new Northern Lite camper with a three way fridge. So if you are into truck campers, they are available. -Mark.

RE: Advice on Cover for Winter Storage

I'm in my eighties. I never go up on the roof. If you have 2 people and 2 long poles, you can work a cover up over your RV working together and use the same technique for removing it. I've even done it single handedly by going back and forth from side to side.
