RE: Low power?

I suspect DS is Dutch Star (Newmar). “Server” may be “Service”. Is it possible to move closer? You might want to consider upgrading the service to 50 amps. As above the length of cords will reduce the voltage. Generator is properly sized for the MH providing 50 amps, and is really really close by.

RE: Michelin vs Toyo tires

I put Toyo M154’s H rated on the front of my unit. Did not really like them until our first short trip. But then they rode as well as the GY’s they replaced. Have also reduced pressures from sticker (92) to weight (83). Rough roads still suck (did before) but not as bad, good roads are good.

RE: Ford 150 Lightning owner review

This whole electrification directive is a scam and will end badly.

RE: Time for new tires already?

From a non trucker and FWIW, I had good service from my OEM Bridgestone’s on my Jeep Wrangler. 50k miles of over 7 years. Swapped them primarily from age, and I wanted new tires. They still had serviceable tread. Back in the ‘60/‘70’s tire wear was terrible but modern tires, from the name brands seem to wear well unless abused. JMO.

RE: Travel Trailers vs Motor Home

I see lots of people these days with various sized MH’s going toad less. If you plan it correctly you can usually find transportation nearby, but there are times when having a toad is a life saver. Renting a motorhome eliminates a toad, unless you use a dolly or car carrying trailer. All forms of RV’s “require” two components. Either you have a car/truck and a trailer (5th wheel included), or a MH and a toad (various setups). Which is better is an opinion.

RE: Just Asking

If they don’t need to sell, then probably not not a good idea. If they have been watching what’s happening to the economy, now may be the best time for a while.

RE: Queston on towing Smart Car

When all else fails read the manual. Not trying to be a wise butt if the manual says you can do what you’re doing then keep doing it.

RE: Sanitizing your RV water storage tank

Hummmm 15 goes into 90 six times. 6 quarters would be one and a half cups.

RE: How many folks want an EV

All our vehicles are paid for, are well maintained, and until there is a really good reason to swap them out for an EV, ain’t gonna happen. I have no real issues with EV’s other than cost and ability to be towed four down. 99% of our daily driving is well within most EV’s advertised capabilities, and charging at home would suffice. I wonder what age groups the EV proponents have tested the electronics with. With many seniors not being able to work new smart phones, smart TVs, can’t deal with steaming services vs basic cable I see a bunch of frustrated drivers.

RE: Handling home office equipment - hanging files

If you have a file box like the one referenced above which has a lid, I would think folding a towel and laying it between the lid and folders would keep the files in place.

RE: Camco

Limited Lifetime Warranty was up… what does that actually mean? ??

RE: Front grill filter

Hope you’re right. The difference, as I see it, in the AC system or the engine air breather, the air is pulled through the filter by the AC fan or pistons, and as the filters get dirty it affects airflow. In both cases there is no other way for air to enter the system. In your situation there is not that forced pulling affect through the material. But I could be wrong, and again hope you are right. I remember reading a post somewhere could have been on another forum, someone did a similar upgrade on a Jeep but used screen door material and started getting over heating situations.

RE: Front grill filter

I think that’s a bad idea as it will greatly restrict the airflow into the engine area.

RE: Towing 4-wheels down.....braking required for vehicle?

Take a good look at the NAS Ready Brake kit. The brake actuator sits between the receiver and the tow bar. An aircraft quality wire runs between the brake actuator and the brake pedal on the Jeep. (There are actually two wires but the connect together). Easy to set up, virtually fool proof, no power needed at the Jeep. NAS also has the same type setup in case the tow bar fails for emergency braking.

RE: Resealing Fiberglass Roof

Fiberglass will decay from UV rays so they should be maintained from time to time. Rubber roofs will also decay and also need protection from UV and cleaned. Just pick what you’re most comfortable with.

RE: EV jump start

So why can’t you bring a “Gas Can” to an EV or carry one in your trunk? Can’t they make a small battery that can hold 5-10 miles of charge that can be connected to the vehicle via power cord? Not to recharge the main battery but a temporary battery pack. Seems like an opportunity like those swappable propane cylinders. Oh yeah, and there are multiple levels of readout or alarms on ICE based cars that alert people they are running out of fuel. But people still manage it.

RE: Apple car play or XM radio

Don’t use XM, not even when it’s free. Despise their marketing with showing their price but leave out taxes, fees, and other costs. I recently replaced the low end radio (which included support for XM) with a touch screen unit with Car Play (and no XM). I can connect iPhone either by USB cable or Bluetooth/WIFI , listen to all my music on my phone, stream Apple Music, send and receive TXT messages via voice, listen to free radio, navigate with Apple Maps, and there is a “radio” feature for internet based radio services. I will say the USB connection is more stable than the blue tooth as it seems to drop out from time to time. If you don’t need all the features, and our existing radio has an AUX in connection just plug your iPhone in.

RE: Tesla great looking EV cars

The implication is however, that if you move rapidly to EV’s, while at the same time removing fossil and nuclear fuels for power generation, have not built out the grid and infrastructure to support the increased demand for electricity from all sources, you have created a path to severe pain for your citizens.

RE: Leaving camper setup and leveled

I’d leave it leveled. No benefit to doing otherwise.

RE: painting/replacing wheel simulator rim liner

Nope. Your rig, your choice. I’ve never thought (still don’t) black rims or white for that matter look good on anything except a little red wagon. Reminds me of the 50’s and 60’s when it was “cool” to remove the hub caps.
