RE: Anybody Know what this is?

That makes sense, the slide is right there. Innovative way to seal off the crank port! I do have 2 low point drains that are hoses that hang down below the bath, I guess the spigot could be dedicated to FW tank drain... Make sure you have the crank in case you actually need it someday. Also I agree the spigot is very likely the FW drain. Low point drains are for the plumbing on the pressure side so a total of 3 drains are needed.

RE: Anybody Know what this is?

Does that model have a slide? On our Eagle Cap, that "hose" cap is the access hole for the manual crank handle.

RE: Considering a TC & Towing my Travel Trailer

Sorry-this site has been TERRIBLE lately. I find that when it hangs after posting, usually the post went through and it was just having trouble reloading the page. That's what causes the extra posts. I just copy the text to save it then start over or go to another portal to see if it showed up.

RE: Burbman Crosses over to the Dark Side....

It’s ok. After 20 years with a Burb, you can forever be Burbman.

RE: Canada/US Border still shut...

Wearing masks is like vaccinations, those who do protect those who don't, but not the other way around. Masks are hardly protection. They are a feel Good measure. Meant to make people Feel Safer! The protect the people you breath around, not the person wearing them. You're welcome. Honest question for you: If I sneeze and somehow don’t lift my mask first, do you think it will contain all of that instantaneous blast?

RE: Travel When Restrictions lifted

Yes, and unfortunately there are some dumb people out there not doing what the authorities recommend. Yet some consider blindly "doing what the authorities recommend" to be dumb or perhaps dangerous. "Authorities" have motive behind what they do. Hint: It's not your interest they’re looking out for. Fortunately these days, "authorities" are not the only source of information.

RE: Canada/US Border still shut...

Just curious... you know that wearing non surgical masks to prevent the spread of a virus is about as effective as chain link fence prevent the spread of mosquitos, right? In fact, studies have shown that masks that are saturated from breathing are actually MORE likely to harbor the virus because of the humid warm environment on the mask? What studies? This is the only one on non-surgical masks I can find. Invitro filtration efficiency for selected face masks to bacteria with a size smaller than SARS-CoV-2 respiratory droplet This study suggests double cloth masks are effective at filtering exhaled virus containing droplets. Here's a paper aggregating several studies about the effectiveness of masks for preventing respiratory virus transmission.'t_Work_A_review_of_science_relevant_to_COVID-19_social_policy

RE: V10 Eng, desperate in need of help

I agree on failing fuel pump.I had a Chevy do the same.Would not start with ether due to not building fuel pressure in the fuel rail..It died on road two times before finally figured it was fuel pump..After new fuel pump installed all has been good x3 (or x4)

RE: How to camp with electric only

I definitely plan to arrive with a full tank. Lately we blast through our capacity (black and gray) in one day. I think if we tried we could go 2 or 3 days, but I have a 7-day reservation. Winnebago says my model has 36/42/51 (black, gray, fresh) with 6 for the water heater. Does that mean I have 51+6 in total fresh water? Hopefully, this park has a common water fill. I tried to call this morning, but they didn't answer so I sent them an email. You can't count the water heater for "use" but t figures in for travelling weight. The only practical way to get water out of the water heater is to push more water into it. So when your main tank runs out, you're out. In an emergency you could go outside and drain the water heater into a container and then use it for something if needed. Our 46 gallons lasts about 4 days with our family of 5, including drinking from it. We usually don't shower when camping, especially if we're playing in lakes during the day.

RE: SOLVED: No power getting to the thermostat

Your best bet may be to head down, through the floor and back up into the furnace. Consider cutting a hole in the wall just above the floor and then cover it with a mud ring and blank cover plate. By putting this near the floor, you can angle a drill down through or drill up from the bottom and use hole to allow you to feed the wire. This assumes you can drop a loose wire down all the way from the t-stat hole without framing in the way.

RE: SOLVED: No power getting to the thermostat

That style of connector is just a housing with individual pins that snap into place. You should be able to look closely and see why there isn’t a connection. Check both sides of the connector. Worst case, splice a wire onto each side and connect them with a bullet style connector in parallel with the bad one. It does seem unlikely that a connector like that just went open circuit but I suppose anything is possible.

RE: Looking into a Truck Camper

2- this means it has to be made of either molded fiberglass or aluminum Our 2007 Eagle Cap walls are all gel coated molded fiberglass. The panels are vacuum bonded to the aluminum frame. There are still seams at the edges but the panels themselves cannot de-laminate. I don't know about the more recent models.

RE: What TC truly sleeps 4 adults ?

One “adult” can sleep diagonal on the dinette and another on a pad on the floor. We still do 5 in our 9.5’. The oldest is 5’6” and uses the floor when not in a tent. The other 2 still fit on the dinette. Cozy is just fine as long as it’s not full time.

RE: Help: DC Power cuts out under load

How about the battery disconnect switch? Maybe try jumping across it for a while and see if the problem goes away. The current through it may be heating it if the contacts are a little poor. This fits with your comment that it always works fine when on shore power. It also couldn’t hurt to cycle it off and on firmly a few times.

RE: Road trip Portland OR to Las Vegas

Thanks for the thoughts/suggestions. I'm a bit concerned about the availability of gas and places to stop for the night if I take the shortest google maps route - I5-58-95S. We had an interview scheduled in April at SeaTac airport but the feds cancelled, no interviews available at SeaTac or Blaine WA due to COVID. We need to get the interview completed by Sept. or we have to start over and pay another 200. If we make the road trip, I'll definitely need to do some good planning and recon to make sure places are open and accepting travelers. Strange times... I would think they would extend the deadline, given the situation and they fact that they cancelled, not you.

RE: used power jack manually,now motor runs but jack wont work?

Could be as simple as a broken roll pin or as messy as a custom part or gear.

RE: Do Ineed to adjust (lower) my hitch?

Put it wherever you need it to have the trailer level or slightly nose low when everything is all hooked up. If you can’t get there with your current hitch you may have to consider one with more drop.

RE: Problems when replacing 7 pin connector

^ Good advice there. I’ll just add that once you have the lights wires all identified you can touch one of them to each of the remaining unknown wires. If the lights turn on, that unknown wire is the charge line to the battery.

RE: Problems when replacing 7 pin connector

You may have to look for blown fuses on the Yukon if things were wired wrong and plugged in.

RE: Support trailer build and story...ideas and the why

That’s awesome work Dave. I love projects like that. I need this, I want that, I gotta have something else. Pick through my junk pile and use up some of the valuable [email protected] that I’ve been saving forever, scrounge a few things, buy what you have to. It would have ended up looking very much the same if I built it. I thought I was the only one that hated the “standard” 7-way RV plug. I prefer the seven round-pin Pollak plug you used as well. Good job! :):) Thanks Kevin.. The RV plug thing just grates on me. They are not all wired the anyone that moves alot of equipment knows. Why a standard is so difficult is beyond me. And, the Pollak's last longer, work easier and are simpler to wire. Oh, and the wiring is always consistent. I carry adapters, but I can't tell you how many times I've had to adjust them roadside because someone's truck is wired wrong..from the factory. Ugh The majority of the towing world has one truck, one trailer, once wired, never know the difference. So, it works. I’ve never heard of a 7-pin Bargman RV plug being wired any other way yet you have seen factory trucks wired differently? Are you sure they weren’t aftermarket installs? The only variable I’ve heard is whether the center pin provides reverse lights and those are optional. Wire colors, however are all over the map. Now 6-pin horse/utility trailers are another matter. Apparently it’s quite common to reverse the +12v aux and brakes, which I found on my wife’s horse trailer when I used a borrowed commercially made adapter. Plugging it in meant the brakes were locked. We owned that trailer for years prior with a different commercially made adapter that worked fine. They don’t even do so much as label what “”style” of adapter it is. I like the fact that my truck uses the same connector as every other factor truck and SUV for years. I suppose if you carry adapters to convert each direction you have it covered. I do think the blades are tougher to make a clean reliable connection and wish the industry had standardized on a better style. Nice trailer build. It looks beautiful and provides mega functionality while doing so.
