RE: 2003 Daymon Daybreak

First look at the controls, brand and model and then go to that companies site. Did you ensure the parking brake is set? engine running? The Damon manual is only going to point you to the jacks manual.

RE: Avoiding Nashville

Travelled 40 east to west Sunday, no major construction problems in Nashville, Knoxville was as much of a PIA as ever. Try to schedule your big city transits on the weekends and they go easier.

RE: SUV for pulling hybrid

Ah thanks everyone!! I value your input. I know As you have spoken Chevy has their cargo/passenger vans and I know Ford does as well but any thoughts on which is better overall? The Chevy's give you the option of a conventional truck drivetrain, plenty of tow cap in the neighborhood of 9000 lbs and sufficient seating, cargo up in the 3500 lb range. With v-8 drivetrains. The ford transit lets you get the eco boost 3.5, and all the seating you need, but trailer towing is limited to 4000 lbs or so. The trailers you can keep in that range are pretty sparse in amenities.

RE: SUV for pulling hybrid

You may not like the idea of it, but with the plan being four kids, and they will grow, you may want to look at the vans like the Chevy Express, plenty of seating, and up to 9000 lb tow capacity.

RE: Help troubleshooting TT AC airflow

The other possibility is that your cooling coils are so trashed that not much air can get through them. coil cleaner If the coils are too dirty , air can not pass through them fast enough.

RE: Solar system with both 12v and AC inverter

I would not worry too much, you do have simple options. IF the trailer does not have an inverter already, you can also power most cpap units off of 12 volts. 12 volt cords If your machine has a "brick" in the regular power cord, chances are that it actually runs on 12 volts, making these cords a simple solution.

RE: Suspension issue, 2021 Rockwood ultra lite

Dexter TorFlex axles under those trailers. You need to verify the weight rating from the axle and then decide whether to replace it yourself or call a mobile mechanic to do it.

RE: Solar system with both 12v and AC inverter

Your TH likely already has a Pure sine wave inverter, for powering TV's or the fridge. In my Winnie I simply tapped the TV outlet in the bedroom with an extension cord for the CPAP on nights we are not connected to shore power.

RE: Anyone use a solar TPMS?

I bought this one tpms and so far it seems to be working correctly. Only had it for four months, but ok so far. And this one goes to 130 psi.

RE: 400 mile electric RV

Good example Don of what these are to be. Urban campers. Look at the ground clearance. You couldn't get that unit off road or even onto a dirt road.

RE: 400 mile electric RV

Interesting, their sales pitch includes this statement several times. " ONE OF THE FASTEST GROWING EV TRUCK PLATFORMS IN THE CLASS 4-6 SPECIALTY WORK TRUCK MARKET" They have not sold a single truck, yet claim to be one of the fastest growing builders of these trucks. crowdfunding pitch I guess they are following a politicians method, say the same thing over and over, and eventually some people will believe you no matter if its true or not. They've apparently sold at least 5 of them: https://www.smud.org/en/Corporate/About-us/News-and-Media/2021/2021/SMUD-accelerates-its-fleet-electrification-with-five--all-electric-work-trucks SMUD has partnered with Zeus Electric Chassis, Inc. and the California Mobility Center (CMC) to procure five custom, all-electric work trucks as it works to transition to an all-electric fleet. The trucks are the only all-electric work truck chassis manufactured in North America in the medium duty class and will be customized for a variety of uses throughout SMUD’s service territory. They havent built anything other than their prototype. Those 5 are an agreement to buy, more or less like the waiting list Musk has of people wanting a cybertruck, he hasn't sold the trucks, just the "IDEA" of the truck.

RE: 400 mile electric RV

They are hiding the 15 Unicorns that will actually be powering this. And they cant show them right now because Musk has dibs on them for the next mythical Cybertruck PhotoSHOP. No magic needed, here's the company that's supplying their chassis: https://zeuselectricchassis.com/ They're a new company, but apparently have sold a few trucks, so I don't think it's all vaporware.

RE: Small Class A vs Large Class C

A small gasser A should still work. I have a Winnie Vista, 27' island queen in a slide, second slide in the living area. And they also made a 30' model in the same years. 2010-2012 would fit your budget with some legwork. Vista brochure 2010

RE: Help buying a small travel trailer

Can we get some information about build quality with the listed units above? Thanks A starting point may be to look at warranty, most only offer one year, a few offer two Jayco, K-Z, and a few others have better warranties, and better reviews on their units as well as more devoted fans. This is a brief rundown on brands and their coverage. warranties.

RE: Help buying a small travel trailer

According to Edmunds, along with your 5000 lb towing capacity, you also have a 1370 lb cargo capacity. So for a 4000 lb trailer expect 500 to 600 pounds tongue weight. (the hitch is rated for 500) If you are planning on a weight dist hitch, you are over, if not you will have about 750-800 lbs available for people and gear in your Toyota. Hope this is helpful.

RE: Tow capabilities

OK you have 860 lbs total available. Now add,,,,, Weight dist Hitch*********************100 lbs 2 tanks and propane********************80 lbs a group 27 battery*********************40 lbs you now have 640 left, on tow capacity and have added no food, clothing, lawn chairs, nothing, not even enough water to flush the toilet. Light packers tend to have close to 1000 lbs in a trailer, most end up higher, a few very cautious ones get by with less. And dont even begin to consider kids and their friends stuff. Also check your cargo capacity on the Yukon, at an 8000 lb trailer, you will be around 1200 pounds on the hitch, which counts against your payload, also anyone else travelling with you and all of the cargo in the back count toward that number, is it ok there? Happy motorin
