RE: More water needed....

A little 4x8 trailer with a couple of 55 gallon drums or possibly something like an Idaho Tote with your water tank.

RE: New Travel Trailer Purchase

You used to hear 30% and 35% bandied around frequently. One thing you can also do is to use www.RVtrader.com or www.rvt.com Use their advanced search and feed the information for exactly what you are looking at. It will then show you ads for identical models and the prices advertised by dealers. You will find a wide variance in those prices, and will also find many variables in how the dealers transact their business. Some will low ball a price, and then add thousands in fees and charges. Some will price their units straight out the door. You can go tho the individual dealers websites from there and see their methods, no fee straight up dealers tend to promote heavily on their business models, dealers with a lot of add ons tend to not show much if any information on their sites. CW uses every ADD on or fee they can dream up. Also remember, these units have wheels, you can buy one from a hundred or more miles away.

RE: Another Battery Question - Are my batteries OK?

While your use on this trip may not pose a problem, you know you will need them soon. So,,,, whats the peace of mind worth to you not to have to worry on this trip? (hint, go get the two GC-2 batteries and relax)

RE: Kind of a dumb question, but I'm new

As bgum said, get it at the same time you get the trailer, and have the dealer do the initial set up and adjustments as much as possible.

RE: What do you shut off when leaving for a trip

Another vote for water and water heater. Few years back didn't. Pex line (hot water of course} blew under the house. 175,000 btuh water heater went through about $500 worth of propane along with my basement flooding. Never again

RE: 2003 jayco granite ridge refrigerator problems

Out of level can make a difference in whether a unit runs, BUT if it runs when the engine is running, but not when the engine is off the next question becomes 12 volt power. Have you checked the house battery/batteries? Are they charged? Are they there? if you just bought it, do you know? Do the interior lights all function when the engine is not running? Time to get a volt meter and start checking.

RE: Leaving dog at campsite

Leaving him outside, in the heat, in a crate will get a lot of attention, none of it good. Inside may go unnoticed, but if he barks,,,,, again, you will gain attention. None of it good. And many campgrounds actually have rules against leaving pets unattended.

RE: House Batteries

Since your talking about the chassis battery, A 2017 motorhome was likely sold in 2016 or at least the battery was placed then. So it's likely nearing the end of it's life. Any auto parts store can test and recommend a suitable replacement.

RE: truck/trailer sway

First suggestion, get it to a scale with everything aboard as if you are going on a trip. Verify the weights including the tongue weight for the trailer. If need be add weight to the front to get to at least 10% of total trailer weight, and 13-15% is better. Also ensure you are moving enough weight to the front of the truck with the WDH set up. Come back and post the results after checking those items and folks can give you some better suggestions.

RE: Towing Camper with A/C Running.

The AC requires 120 Volt AC power. If not plugged into shore power, you would have to have a generator to power the rooftop unit. I guess you could stop a half hour before reaching your destination to start a genny and run a power cord, but short of that, or having a large battery bank with an equally large inverter, your stuck with starting the AC after getting to a site.

RE: Exclusive: Utterly Unique Fifth Wheel

Unit has to be even more top heavy than normal, and it will be interesting to see how they hold up, I can see these being even more overloaded than most others. Too much empty space is a non starter for some, they will just have to find stuff to put in there.

RE: 2013 KZ Sportsman converter problems

Yes a battery charger off to the side will work, but a "tender" may not get you boosted enough to run the fridge etc while you are travelling. Have you checked the fuses/breakers as well as ensuring a fuseable link to ensure reversed polarity has not been knocked out? Jumper cables from your tow vehicle to the trailer battery will let you ensure that power will go to the 12 volt appliances/lights etc when power is available at the battery.

RE: Top models in Class C’s

All of them use the same components. Larger ones tend to be on Ford E-450 Chassis and there are a few using Chevy's. Smaller units can be on Mercedes or Ford or Ram sprinter style vans. As to house quality, again, they use mostly the same components. Generally most will tell you I believe that the Thor products tend to be the lowest quality, Highest quality is likely going to be like asking whats better, Ford or Chevy. As a generality Coach House, Winnebago, Nexus, Entegra, Jayco, Coachmen, Gulfstream, Forest River all offer varying levels of amenities, and cross multiple price points. And yes the list above is somewhat close to a price breakdown with the first ones tending to a somewhat more expensive, and some would say , better lines. If you are shopping new, warranty on the "house" could be considered by some as a telltale. Jayco and a couple others warrant for more than one year, Most tend to only cover for a single year.

RE: what is the diff between towing cap & 5th wheel towing cap

"5TH-WHEEL TOWING CAPACITY (LBS.) 9,840" Maybe a mistake for Kg?
