RE: CA Hwy 1

I believe the real concern is the trailer crossing over into oncoming traffic or leading wide with the truck to keep tires on the pavement. Take it slow and all will be fine.

Last entry should be miles not feet ;)

RE: CA Hwy 1

Sorry wrong maps ;) Says 30' KPRA. (King Pin to Rear Axle). That would be a very large fifth wheel to be excluded. CA Truck maps

RE: CA Hwy 1

Over 40' is prohibited. I think you get an extra 10' if you have a trailer. CA Bus-Motorhome map. see 1 & 4

RE: Propane regulator?

Use tape or dope on pipe threads only. Flare fittings must not use tape. Most pigtail to regulator connections are reverse flare so no tape on these.

RE: Looking for inverter installation in SF Bay Area

Inverters don't like heated and messy engine compartments. Maybe you have enough protected space and ventilation. 3000 watts really should have 6+ batteries to drive the thing. Might get by with 4 but I can't recommend just 2. Romex is generally fine and commonly used in RVs. Although not designed to be run in conduit so maybe just use the wire loom to protect in critical spots that might rub. Can also get marine triplex stranded wire if you want something more flexible. Custom made battery cables are available too if you are considering DIY. https://www.genuinedealz.com/products/custom-battery-cable-marine-grade-by-the-foot

RE: replacing Brake Pads

Years ago I was told by the dealer the Motocraft are not exactly the same as the original pads. Had to special order the originals and they definitely lasted longer. Don't recall a big difference in braking power so must have been close on that regard.

RE: Smartplug Converstion

Excellent. :( Now you can get the proper cord with a 30-TT connector

RE: Filling large propane tank on the road

I think most U-Haul also will fill your RV tank. No reason to be cold for lack of propane. +1 for collecting one or more 30# cylinders if the on-board tank is inconvenient or inadequate. Get the fire on already.

RE: Wall mount electric heater

Instead of using 4 15A lighting circuits I could use 3 20A circuits, saving the cost of another breaker and the extra 14 ga wire that would be needed.Today a 100w equivalent LED draws maybe 14.5 watts. With 1380 watts available you could put 95 of these bulbs on one circuit. Crazy.

RE: replacing Brake Pads

14 1/2 years and 412,924K on the odometer and it's never been changed.Kind of makes you wonder just how important it is to flush it.Brake fluid with moisture contamination can work fine... until it doesn't. Same for coolant hoses, belts, battery, fuel filter, etc.

RE: Apocalypse almost

What bugs me why they scrapped all public phones?We have a few. They cost about $300 per month for the business owner to have it there for this rare exception of need. Before mobile the business owner received a share of the tolls paid so it made money. How many would you install today?

RE: Making Oil

Drive it normal a few days and check again would be telling. That or immediately send an oil sample to the lab. https://www.blackstone-labs.com Or we can just speculate...

RE: Looking for I70 alterantives Colorado trip in February - .

I doubt you will have any issue with quarantine if you just hang out at camp until you roll the next morning. That is quarantine. No restaurants, no bars, no shopping, no gatherings etc.

RE: First camp trip?

Trailer roofline looks flat to the top of the photo. Nothing nose high about that group. ;)

RE: Trailer too long for truck?

The only length restriction is the state max length of maybe 65 feet but does vary. 8000 GVWR trailer and trusting you have the exact truck properly equipped that gives 11,000 tow rating... drive safe, get a good hitch, and go have some fun.

RE: Plumbing pressure relief

80 psi is the max pressure according to plumbing code. More like 50 to 65 psi is normal. The T&P valve at 125psi is there to prevent tank rupture not to regulate pressure to code. The air bubble in the water heater is not reliable and one more maintenance headache. The accumulator can take the place of the tank air bubble on a permanent basis. Yes the valve or a fitting could be weak. The spike in pressure can still exist and exasperate the issue. Not sure why such resistance to the accumulator as a permanent solution. So who uses 100+ psi to blow out the water when winterizing?

RE: Wall mount electric heater

We've got an 18' travel trailer we'd like to keep warm in the spring/fall. The Gas furnace is just too powerful in my opinion. Its either 75/80 degrees inside or off. The campers too small for the gas furnace. It warms it up nice and quick when we want it warm. At 2am we wake up in a sauna.I think you may have a thermostat issue. Or you need to drop it down another 5-10 degrees for sleeping. Location of the thermostat could be an issue.
