RE: Those with portable surge protector

I guess I'm missing the down side to using the surge protector all the time? Mine is plugged into it 24/7 for the last 11 years no matter where I power up.

RE: Winterization

I don't blow out anymore. I just open the faucets and low point drains. After that, close them all and pump in the juice till it runs pink, starting at the far point from pump and working my way back. I let some in the drain traps and put the residual in the gray and black tanks. Have had zero issues in 11 years. I use about 3 gallons total. I figure the $8 won't break me.

RE: Wood or Aluminum Frame?

Mine is aluminum frame and tin exterior, so no delam issues. Because of so much aluminum and a full I beam frame, I have a low dry weight and high carrying capacity. And I have no worries about rot hidden in the walls. I sleep like a baby at night.

RE: Tires

I'm on my second set of Maxxis 8008's, and I have been very pleased with them. I also had my axles aligned and have been running balancing beads for several years. How much effect those two things on tire performance cannot be underestimated. But, the original tires were Kenda, and I'll never buy another one. I bought on line and tires were two years old when received, so pretty good for the price. The last thing I need when camping is mechanical issues, tires, brakes, springs, etc. Have been very satisfied with Maxxis performance.

RE: 70 year old John Force Wins 150th NHRA race !

He sure is a piece of work. Glad he finally got the monkey off his back. He is the genuine article for sure.

RE: Electric cooler off of 12 volts

We also have a Koolatron for about 3 years now. Our original Coleman died. We keep mostly drink in ours and supplement it by changing ice packs from the freezer daily. It does fine for what we need it for and has never drained our battery as long as plugged into shore power.

RE: ? "Easy" Way to Clean Patio Mat?

I drape ours over the clothes line and hose it off on both sides. It doesn't really hold much dirt. Mostly mud and leaf litter, pine needles, etc. Comes out pretty clean. Had it 11 years.

RE: My set up and TT length

You should be fine with that truck. Mine is almost 34 and I've been all over and back in 11 years with the 5.4 wheezer. Tows fine, but short on power. My HD payload is 2200 and I use all of it. What you need to watch is your tongue weight. Not so much because the truck can't handle it, but because the hitch receiver is probably maxed out at 1150 lbs. My tongue is usually 1050 ish. I broke out my stock one and replaced it with a Drawtite. Head and shoulders above OEM spaghetti junk Ford puts on. Stiffer rear shocks may help. I do have some porpoising at times, but not terrible.

RE: Travel Trailer antenna coax

The tool I bought came with type "F" connectors and they arent going to work. The cable is just too small for the inner sleeve. I have found crimp connectors at Lowes and my buddy at work has the crimp tool, so I am going to go that way and hope it works out. Another 10 min job that takes 3 days. You'd think I'd be used to it by now. Thanks for all the help!

Travel Trailer antenna coax

I have very little experience with coax cables in general, so my frame of reference is limited here. My cable conductor (inner wire) broke off and is jammed into the antenna (Winegard standard Sensar) and I've decided to replace the head with the updated version instead of messing around trying to replace the male plug in. The problem is, I have to crimp another end on the cable to attach to the new head and the cable does not fit the crimp sleeve that came with the tool. The coax which comes from the box in the entertainment center to the roof antenna is slim and won't slide over the crimp sleeve as necessary to hold it in place. The inner sleeve on the new end won't fit down inside the coax outer cover with the shield wires folded back. Are there many different sized coax crimp ends? I thought it was a standardized thing but appears not. If I decided to run a new cable, are there outdoor grades, or will any coax work? I already have a new extension cable but can find nowhere on the package where it mentions if it's for outdoor use. Thoughts? Another 10min job turned into an excursion in frustration. Thanks for any insights.

RE: Yamaha Genny EF3000iSEB Inverter Board (new in 2017)

I would contact my Yamaha dealer directly if you haven't yet.

RE: trailer ball ratings

I needed a 1" rise ball for my Dual Cam hitch to work right. I bought one off Amazon, I think its a Curt Brand. It was heat treated instead of Chrome, but I think the rating was 24k lbs. It's holding up well towing my 8000 lb trailer and 1100 lb tongue weight.

RE: Black holding tank censors

I haven't looked at my sensors in about 8 years. After a while you just know.

RE: High mile gas engine trucks

185,000 on the F 150 HD in my sig picture. I have had to put some money in it that should not be necessary in my opinion, but it has been a great truck for me other than the repairs. Prolly have to run it for another few years to well over 200K.

RE: A simple idea

After 11 years of trying everything I know, I have given up. Starting with the simple precept that if she can't see me in the mirror, I can't see her. I pretty much ignore her and get out if I have to. I'm at a loss as to what to try anymore when I've explained it so many times. Just easier if I do it and let her think she's helping. Every trip used to start with tension at the campsite. No more.

RE: Cleaning black streaks

I have used Reliable RV cleaner quite a bit over the years to great effect. It ain't cheap but a little goes a long way. Wipes them right off. You should wax after but you don't have to.

RE: Level trailer

Or we could just hitch up and go camping. Just an idea.
