RE: Need batterys.

Sounds like you are worried about recharge time. Charge time is dependent on how much amperage has been removed from the battery bank. It does not matter if it is 2 12s in parallel or 2 6s in series. As far as the charger is concerned it is one big 12vdc battery.

RE: Fridge Defend

Sounds to me like improper installation; especially in respect to meeting ventilation requirements.

RE: Tire flat spots

Date code 2016 and we are already in the 10th week of 2020. Those tires are entering their 4th year. I would replace them because of age.

RE: SF 42 furnace madness

Swap the two blue wires where you made the connection at the furnace.

RE: Quiet boondocking Moab + South Grand Canyon late march

For the Grand Canyon South Rim consider the NPS campground at Desert View. While not true boondocking its location within an easy walk to the rim and away from the crowds at Canyon Village make it very pleasant.

RE: Adding outdoor lights to my RVs

I would doubt if the lights proposed by the OP would would run afoul of any regulations unless one turned them on while on the road.

RE: Florida to Texas

As long as you avoid rush hour going west thru Baton Rouge on I12 & I10 is not a problem. Weekends are even easier. US190 is street level city traffic.

RE: Florida to Texas

Ditto. Time your travel to avoid "rush hours" in Baton Rouge and be careful in the construction areas between the Atchafalaya Basin bridge and Lafayette and the Texas line to Beaumont.

RE: Lights

Loose bulb or connection.

RE: Maximum length rig considerations

For National Parks 30' is pretty much the limit especially in the dry camping areas. A few have some larger sites with hookups that accept longer. Quite often it is the road accessibility as much as the site size that creates the length limit.

RE: Battery Replacement Assistance

What make and model refrigerator do you have? Many have a heat strip between the doors to prevent sweating. This is in the 12 VDC circuit and is a high draw item. On some it can be turned off.

RE: Florida Camping

In the past I have found that in Keys your best bet is to call campgrounds a week or so ahead and find one that has an availability and reserve. You will need to be flexible on your dates. On your way down overnight stops can usually be done on a wing it basis. Everglades National Park generally has first come first served dry camping availability.

RE: Water Pumps

They are diaphragm pumps and the reason they are used is twofold. They can be run dry without damage and are self priming.

RE: Battery Replacement Assistance

My recommendation is the 2 6V set up as it gives you the most flexability. However, if your TT is a newer one that has LED lighting and you do not need the furnace 3 nights is not a problem if you use a Group 31 deep cycle battery.

RE: What ever happened to RV Park Reviews?

Learned many many moons ago that "new and improved" is quite often not better. This is a good example.

RE: How do you summer travel?

I make as few reservations as possible. Usually only if I want to be at a specific destination on a set date or holiday is involved. While traveling I generally go about 300 miles and stop at a campground. Very seldom is there a problem of availability of one site for one night.

RE: digital thermostat

No they should last a couple of years. Batteries don't like to power things when very cold.

RE: Loud Water Pump

Ditto to Old Biscuit. That will cure 90 percent of pump noise issues.

RE: Texas road map

Best source for road maps of Texas or any other state is that states tourist commission web site. They will be happy to mail you maps and all kinds of travel information.

RE: Screws being pulled out on Awning

Sounds like the mounts are not aligned correctly or the awning material has shifted in the mounting rail. If trailer is new this should be a warranty issue.
