RE: Timberlodge slideout motor

So I just did a google search for "2003 timberlodge 26rls" in Pennsylvania and found quit a few. I would suggest you find one close to you and go look at the slide out motors in them and get a model no.

RE: Battery Storage between trips

My batteries sit in my basement for 3 months or more every winter and are still over 12 volts when I take them out again. So I'm pretty sure I ain't harming them leaving them disconnected a few weeks or even a month between trips; YOMV. I'll also add, I had my last trailer for 12 years and only replaced the battery once. The fact is, I only use it for lowering and raising the tongue anyways. The one I have now will be 6 years old in April.

RE: Battery Storage between trips

Maybe I should of added the fact that I have dual batteries....if I added solar would it charge both?.....I have a Furrion plug in frontAll you really need to do is get a battery disconnect switch if you don't have one and disconnect all power draws between trips (so install the disconnect right at the battery so you have no parasitic power drasws - just like removing the cable from the battery). Then turn the switch on and plug it in a day before the next use and you'll be good to go. Turn the switch off again when you get back home and into storage; rinse and repeat.

RE: Trouble on the border

It is NOT just Mexicans crossing the border - it is South American countries. You should stay home and watch the carnage on FOX. I think he should travel to Big Bend and RGV to witness the truth first hand. He's afraid of a boogie man that doesn't exist. Viva TequilaSo tell me, how many border patrol agents are there today in Texas compared to last year at this time?

RE: How long do you drive/tow in a day?

...Well I have made the argument for decades as a adult I should be able to decide for myself when I was tired...Well The OP and the rest of the people on this post also have the ability to decide for themselves when they are tired and how many drivers they have - regardless of your diatribe karen

RE: parking on hill

That wouldn't work for me, YOMV, but I'm not ready to let $25K go careening down the hill and start over from scratch. Because your asking other their opinion (from posted pictures no less) indicates to me you're not to comfortable with it. What's your gut telling you?

RE: Another Towing Question

...Also, your rear axle is only rated or 3,800lb. Once you subtract the empty weight off that, you probably only have 800-1200lb left...you hitch weight will eat that up and then some. That means you have to run with pretty much nothing in the truck bed (including a cap or cover)...The curb weight on the rear axle of that truck is about 2000 lbs, the long shot is 2200 lbs. if its got all the bells and whistles plus a kitchen sink (which isn't likely cause those come with 4800 RAWR). That leaves probably another 1800 lbs± before you get to the 3800 lbs rear axle rating.

RE: Another Towing Question

... When the trailer weighs considerably more than the truck and will be over 30’ long physics take over, no matter what 1/2 ton you have.Please tell me about the physics, should be an interesting read. I like to read fiction. Been there, doing that; for about 12 years.

RE: Another Towing Question

Go look on the drivers side door, there are two stickers, post a picture of both stickers (Black out the Vin number on the stickers before posting). My F150 would handle that trailer easily without exceeding and of its ratings. Your F150 may or may not, depending on what those two stickers indicate. Any posting which don't take into account what those two stickers say are purely conjecture. You'll probably have to read up on how to post pictures on this forum also.

RE: Very new to living in an RV/Trailer

Just my opinion and you can take it or leave it; but, unless you are given or already own a late model, high quality, 4 season RV, you are not going to save money living in a RV in a RV Park. It would be cheaper and better to rent an apartment or small house. If it was a mobile home, possibly (they are built to different standards than a RV).

RE: Ev charging in camps expectation of availability, cost

Good reason for adding a few dedicated J1772 units on dedicated circuits not on any loop.Yup, that is certainly the answer. Only one problem - that $40 your willing to pay ain't going to incentivize a RV park to undertake such an endevour.

RE: FOB keys and theft

I ordered my faraday bag today on amazon, it came with two free tin foil hats (in the shape of a pyramid). Got it all covered now!

RE: You have 13 yrs 11 mths left to buy a GM gas or dsl vehicle

@Lynnmor ...Don't you have something from at least this who don't push "conspiracy theories"... As opposed to an article by James Ellsmoor, a well known renewable energy zealot - I'm sure he wouldn't bend the truth any now would he. Pot calling the kettle black.

RE: Power pedestal wiring question

If the rate you paid allowed 30 amp service, to use both the 30 amp and 20 amp plugs isn’t right IMO. What is wrong with you? Every single response you have ever made is critical,or authoritative. Who appointed you arbiter of which outlet to use. Some parks charge a premium for 50AMP. Sometimes I'll plug my 50 to 30 dogbane in because the 30 outlet is whipped. Should I pay the overage? Stayed in Ely Nevada in the fall. Campground owner told me to plug my heat tape into the twenty. IMO your opinion sucks! You totally nailed it. That's the wisdom of Solomon right there.He ain't the only one, there are a few others rowing that boat also.

My son, who is 23 and working and living on his own, still goes camping with us on most trips (bringing along with his girlfriend also).

RE: You have 13 yrs 11 mths left to buy a GM gas or dsl vehicle

Ok let's make this another doomsday for Tesla thread :RI don't believe anyone on here said Tesla and EV's are doomed. I believe they are saying they will never completely eliminate the ICE cars and light trucks (as some on here are certainly implying). For my self, until they can go about 400 miles (without stopping) in the dead of winter (with the heat and wipers on), I won't be buying one. And my light truck will need to do a 400 mile trip (at the speed limit) in the heat of the summer (with AC on) pulling a 7600 lbs camper. Well, don’t tell us, tell GM. It’s there business plan. And you may as well let VW know as well as they have a similar business plan, and they are the biggest vehicle manufacturers in the world. Or they can apply for the job of. GM new CEO with their thesis that he should be hired because the company is wrong for what they just announced.:BJust like in 2008 when GM slashed SUV production in favor of sedans because gas prices were rising. Guess what, that market plan was wrong and had to change. They're making more SUVs now then ever. Like I said, regardless of what the plan is, they'll respond to the market, whatever that may be at the time.

RE: You have 13 yrs 11 mths left to buy a GM gas or dsl vehicle

I don't need to tell them anything. There not going to stop making them as long as the sales still justify keeping on manufacturing them. Regardless of what their sales plan says, their not going to cut off their nose to spite their face. If their still making a profit on them, they'll keep making them. If EV sales are so good that they can't make a decent profit on ICE, then I guess I'm just out of luck. My bet is that's not going to happen. YOMV

RE: Power pedestal wiring question

The pedestals come complete with receptacles, breakers, meters, etc.; pre-wired with main lugs at the bottom for the feeds. They're 3 wire, two hots and a neutral, connect a ground wire at the bottom and you're done. Can be configured with any type and as many receptacles as you want, also with cable tv, water spigot, whatever you need. As I said they are pre-wired - Each circuit breaker is branched off the 3 main lugs, and wired directly to the three outlets. The main feeds are generally 250kcmil or larger and are on circuits of 200 - 400 amps depending on the number sites, and number and sizes of receptacles being fed. They just daisy chain the feed from one pedestal to the next, to the next, etc.; just like you would wire receptacles and light switches in your home off one breaker in the main panel. Midwest makes a lot of them, also Siemens, GE there are others. That's also probably the best way to put one in at your house. Just run the feeds to the lugs and you're done, no worries about wiring the receptacle wrong. So in this situation each individual receptacle will give you the amps its breaker is rated for.
