RE: Best portable heater (30 amp) for my rv?

Electric is all about 1500 watts or 5200 BTU and provides the same actual heat. The question is if you prefer radiant, forced air or convection? Radiant will reflect the heat direct on you for an instant feeling of warmth. Forced air will circulate the warmth some or direct it into a cold area. Convection will provide a steady even heat that seems slower at first but still provides the same BTU. I use a 1200 watt Delonghi radiator style and it works well for what we need and prefer. I like the lower wattage to run the circuit a bit less than the max as it often runs 24/7.

RE: Camping in cold temps, bad idea?

27F? Easy with electric power. Just know where the closest propane store is and what hours they are open.

RE: iOS 14

Noticed a couple extra app icons to delete. Rest is same. I am a light user. I see no issues.

RE: How to remove/prevent standing water at campsite???

Set a laser up, find the low spot.Or just observe how the water recedes. Practical low point is probably already known.

RE: Advice to omit the auto change LP valve

Under heavy use I don't consider a check once a day to be obsessive. And yes I have camped at zero F. With one tank off and the indicator is waking up to the elbow in your ribs due to the constant blowing of cold air at 3am so I can run out in my skivvies to open a valve.... no thanks. I will check it daily. BTDT Glad there was no rain or snow at the time. I suppose if conditions were that extreme I would carry a 3rd cylinder. As for cruise control, yes you still need to watch the road periodically.

RE: Why do I need a DC to DC charger?

The truck alternator is only going to put out a max voltage, by the time it goes through the thin wire to the toad, its going to be even lower, so why do I need to regulated it?The DC-DC charger will BOOST the voltage and provide a proper charge at the correct voltage and then float. The DC-DC is not installed to limit the voltage from the alternator being too high.

RE: Heat & A/C on at the same time!

Do you have propane? Is the propane turned on? Any chance you have a heat strip or heat pump A/C unit?

RE: Advice to omit the auto change LP valve

I like cruise control. Some just refuse to give in to automation.

RE: Propane regulator making noise

I would take the Cavagna over that Marshall any day. Much easier to read and no guesswork.

RE: How to remove/prevent standing water at campsite???

I suspect the trees and soil will benefit if the water is left standing to soak in periodically. Immediate drainage every time nearly eliminates this natural process.

RE: Advice to omit the auto change LP valve

If you want a single cylinder regulator.... get one. I would stay with the automatic. I recommend Cavagna brand. Replace the hose with a bubble.

RE: lug nut socket

Interesting that is the same torque as the wheels our Ram 3500 DRW. I have on board air and carry an impact wrench.My old F150 is 150 torque but I only have 5 lugs ;)

RE: Black tank welding?

Some Plasti-Mend and some sheet ABS should work. I assume the tank is ABS

RE: Bad air quality--finally taped a house filter on the A/C

You really need MERV-11 or better to block smoke particles. Might get some with that but it will take a large format filter to minimize restriction.

RE: lug nut socket

I use a short impact socket, 6" impact extension, and my old Craftsman torque wrench from the 1970s.

RE: How to remove/prevent standing water at campsite???

https://rawhidefirehose.com/ This specific hose: https://rawhidefirehose.com/firehose/hose-by-industry/industrial/1-12-single-jacket-mill-discharge-hose-250-lb-test/ Unfortunately the lengths seem to be limited to 100 feet. Google will find a few more to compare. Very close in price. Probably amazon has it too. Grainger has the C&E shank camlock to NPT adapter to connect to the pump. https://www.grainger.com/product/BANJO-Cam-and-Groove-Adapter-1DPL3 Pump: https://www.waterpumpsdirect.com/FloTec-FP0S4100X-Water-Pump/p72416.html Shop around. I recommend the side screened intake vs the bottom to have less debris enter the pump.

RE: How to remove/prevent standing water at campsite???

I also use 150' of 1.5" fabric covered 'fire hose' so it can roll up very compact for storage.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

I thought everyone does this at I-5 at 2 am, lol.:BToo much traffic at 2A if you are in the city. Maybe in the valley or through Pendleton.

RE: How to remove/prevent standing water at campsite???

I would just get a pump. Low cost solution for the few times a year. I only get my pump out every 3 to 5 years and is well worth having it.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Okay, let me see if I have this straight: They're comparing the Taycan Turbo S, a real live car vs a Lucid Air, an imaginary car, vs Model S Plaid, also an imaginary car. Seriously??!!Lucid is a stretch, however Plaid based on an existing platform is much closer to reality. And I agree any sub 12 second car is borderline dangerous on the street. 150+ mph seems unnecessary to me.
