RE: RV Service Experiences- Two Different Service Centers

Sounds like you’re redoing everyone’s shoddy work. Maybe you should just do it yourself in the first place?

For the first time, I didn’t hear many boos. He’s probably disappointed in that! Lol

RE: New 1500 series pickups and Hensley Arrow

Ok you never mentioned max tow. Just the tow package. Those are 2 different packages. People get confused and see the high tow rating and assume that’s what they have. Her towing capacity will be posted on the drivers door jamb. Here’s the fine print on your link: 1 Maximum trailering ratings are intended for comparison purposes only. Before you buy a vehicle or use it for trailering, carefully review the Trailering section of the Owner’s Manual. The trailering capacity of your specific vehicle may vary.

RE: New 1500 series pickups and Hensley Arrow

I’ve never towed with a half ton nor have I towed a tag axle RV. My sister has a newer GMC Denali 1500 with the baby Duramax and tow package. The truck is rated to tow up to 13000 lbs. She has no experience towing. The trailer they are planning on buying is a 24 foot tandem axle tag trailer with a GVWR of about 6000 lbs. Is buying a Hensley Arrow hitch for such a small trailer of much value or is the GM anti sway control along with a typical weight distribution hitch more than adequate to provide a safe and pleasant towing experience? You might want to double check that tow capacity because it’s nowhere near 13,000. Depending on what configuration of cab/box she has, the most it would be is 9,100. And I’m not saying that the truck can’t tow the camper she wants. That sounds like a good match.

Put your slides in and hit auto level.

RE: Overloaded or wrong truck?

Impossible to tell unless I was in truck during failure. Truck should be capable.

RE: Nascar Follies

Bumping someone out of the way or getting them loose is all part of the sport, yes. But running somebody down and slamming into them at a super speedway is a whole other level. Maybe not to the casual fan. Especially when they’re obviously having crash problems with this new generation car. Crashes have already ended one drivers career this year and there’s another’s in question at the moment. He’s lucky his hotheadedness didn’t cause a lot more carnage. Not to mention leaving the car, fighting, and hands on an official. He got off easy as expected.

RE: Winterizing Question

No need to drain pump and after winterizing you can open low point drains and let any water out and antifreeze will follow. Also don’t forget to take screen off city water connection and push check valve to let water out. Do this last after winterizing. Make sure pressrin system is minimal or you’ll get an antifreeze bath.

RE: WFCO WF-8955 amps in absorption mode

Thanks! All great responses and pretty much what I thought about undersized wiring. I’d love to replace the wiring and converter but it’s just not practical for a couple times a year that I need it. I’m probably just going to do what was suggested above and bring along my 25 amp charger to help it along. I tried it last night in the driveway and it does boost the voltage up.

WFCO WF-8955 amps in absorption mode

I have a WFCO-8955 (55 amp) that absolutely will not go into bulk mode even though it’s a 3 stage converter. Not sure if it’s inadequate wiring or an inadequate converter. It’s always 13.6-13.8 no matter the state of charge of the batteries. What I’d like to know is how many amps is it putting out in this mode. And don’t tell me 55 because we all know that ain’t possible! ??

RE: 5th wheel & Half-ton TV Thoughts

It’s a 5.5’ box which means it’s not a HDPP (they’re 6.5’) and doesn’t have enough payload or rawr for a 5th wheel. This is coming from a guy that tows a 5th wheel with a 1/2 ton that’s in my signature.

RE: 5th wheel front tripod

I used to have one years ago before automatic levelers. It did seem to help some but it’s long gone now.

RE: Do I need a better converter?

Just found the converter. It’s a WFCO 9855.

RE: Do I need a better converter?

Ok I’ll try to give some more info. They are regular lead acid. First night they were 100% because it had been parked in my driveway plugged in for 2 weeks. I was charging for 2 hrs in the morning and 3 hrs in the evening. I did periodically shut the converter off to run a microwave but that was very limited. Probably 15 minutes total per day. I’ll have to look but I know I have a WFCO 8930/50. Trailer is 50 amp. There is a breaker that says converter. Am I right in thinking it is a separate unit?

Do I need a better converter?

Just replaced original 80ah battery with 2 100ah batteries. When dry camping for 3 nights the batteries were steadily lower after each charging during the allowed generator times. 1st night when fully charged they dropped to 60%. 2nd night they started out at 85% and dropped to 50% then 3rd was about 70% to 30%. I never saw higher than 13.7 when plugged in to my 2000watt generator. Haven’t looked at what my converter is rated for yet but am I right in thinking it’s just not putting the charge back in fast enough? Would a stand alone commercial battery charger that I have work better in the few times a year I dry camp? Any suggestions would be appreciated!
