RE: Headlights aiming up when towing?

My truck sets level as it should. I get flashed on occasion. You pretty much should never get flashed. Maybe consider slightly lowering your headlight aim, particularly as your truck ages and may settle a bit lower.

RE: Headlights aiming up when towing?

The 2020 headlights easily blind oncoming traffic. I think the design is defective, I hate it when they come towards me even when not loaded. It’s been going on longer than 2020. Modern headlights are super bright and rely on a sharp cutoff (above which there is little light). When they are even slightly high the results are blinding for the oncoming driver. Twist the adjusters down when loaded.

RE: I needed to add an extra browser

I’ve never heard of Vivaldi until your post (not that I go looking for browsers much). If one of your main browsers doesn’t even make the top 10, it kind of doesn’t count when it comes to compatibility with websites as they likely never tested to it. If it continues to gain acceptance it will become more widely supported. As much as I’m not a big fan of The Google, Chrome is now the most widely used and therefore most likely to avoid those kind of issues.

RE: PD charge wizard not working

Technically the Wizard is built in to the PD unit. The thing with the LED and button is an optional remote pennant. If the LED isn’t lit and the unit doesn’t seem to produce any current something is probably wrong with the PD itself. It could be as simple as a blown fuse. You can also try disconnecting the pennant and see if there is any charging current in case the pennant has failed and is confusing the main unit.

RE: Shurflow pump problem UPDATE

Our Flo-jet pump was left on accidentally in storage and when the bit of remaining water evaporated it started to run. It may have been running for weeks. It would still pump up to normal pressure and hold without back leaking but it refused to prime anymore. Now I can say it was directly caused by that. I did find out quite some time later that it would prime with the tank clear full. I took the head apart a couple different times and never found anything. So after having to manually prime it with the winterizing tube dozens of times I finally got around to just replacing the pump. I should have done that years ago. You may find yours still won’t prime with less than a full tank.

RE: Do you really need a corner cut mattress?

Just flip the mattress end for end to check if there are clearance issues.

RE: storage door lock

If they’re like the ones on our compartments, they may be mounted in a round hole instead of a D. If that’s the case, stick a large screwdriver into the keyway and force turn it to the left to unthread it from the nut on the back. Edit: The non locking cams are in round holes and turn themselves often. I’m not sure about the locks.

RE: Fine Tuning the load

If you want a little more than pushing against the wobble, you can gently hold your foot against the jack before it touches down to force the slack to one side. Then once the camper lifts off it will automatically shift to the center and you can gently move it beyond by holding when you lower it back down.

RE: Solution to Trash Left Behind!

You gotta be kidding me, it sounds like you're advocating dumping your trash instead of dealing with it. That right? I thought the same thing. At least justifying dumping trash. :M I read his comments as explaining why people do it, not justifying. In other words if want to solve the problem, unfortunately you have to make it easier for the slobs.

RE: Solution to Trash Left Behind!

Love the idea of mailing trash back to the folks that generated it! I'd get a kick out of dropping the trash on their doorstep myself! Those that litter really irritate me, even from a young age. As a teenager (many decades ago), me and my friends would go party in the desert. If a friend decided to chuck trash out the window while I was driving, I'd slam on the brakes and make him or her go pick it up. If they put up any resistance, they would find themselves having a long walk home. Not one bottle or can was ever left behind! A group I belong to adopted a stretch of freeway and performs clean-up events a couple times a year. The amount of trash picked-up is always shocking. Problem is, nobody feels like they should be held accountable for their actions these days. Quite sad! “Someone I know” may have found a bunch of trashed dumped by the road near a friend’s house that happened to include a couple of different things with an address on it. That someone may have returned it, while creating a nice front yard display at that address. My family also participates in a 3 mile section of rural adopt-a-road and pick up several full trash bags 2x a year. It’s about fast food consumption completion distance away from town as evidenced by the gifts left in the ditches. It’s so obviously not an accident when the quantity increases along the sections of the road away from any houses.

RE: Rivian 1/2 ton high temp, grade test. Good read/video

Could you post a link for that 15% of the car sale......... I would like to read it. Sure. Here’s a link for 2019 9 percent I mentioned. You can google the expected 2020 results. Lots depends on Tesla’s ability to crank them out and allotment to Canada. About half of EV’s sold here are Tesla’s. Three things work for EV sales here. 1. Cheap and abundant power. 2. Expensive gas. 3. Federal and provincial incentives on cheaper models. That article says 65% of the electric vehicle sales are battery-only. The others are plug-in hybrid. Also, Tesla is about half of that 65% not half of what the article is calling EV's. Still a pretty good chunk of the sales though. This thread, however, is about the Rivian. At least it got one page to itself. ;)

RE: A wiring Question for the older Atwood Electric Jacks

Put an ohm meter on one pair of wires while pressing the drivers side jack switch. If you have the main power wires, you should see some resistance (A few ohms) through the motor coil between the pair of wires. The passenger side wires will only connect the main wires when the passenger side switch is activated so ohming that wire pair should not “see” the motor coil and will look open circuit no matter which way the passenger switch is moved.

RE: generator question

I don't see any ready-made 50A bonding plugs, so this is probably something to talk to an electrician about. You can bond anywhere there is neutral and ground available on the generator, for example the 120V receptacle.

RE: Honda EU generators, BLUETOOTH, FINALLY!

IMHO the CO meter may NOT be as good as it seems. Yes, if you are running in an enclosed area I'm sure it would shut off or alarm. However if it outside and the exhaust is upwind and the exhaust is pointing towards a building and your close, like outside a door, garage door etc. it's possible that the CO concentration at the meter may be low, but CO buildup in the building could be bad. It doesn't take much CO to be a killer, especially in lower concentrations with long exposure, like cooped up in a room or worse yet sleeping. I can see the CO thing making people think they can be careless and it will protect them. it may not I agree with this. Plus it may false alarm if the generator is nowhere near anyone but sitting in its own CO. Maybe a detachable portable alarm that can be placed near the people?

RE: Used TC: does it have a lien?

I don't know of any states that require a plate, and have never known or seen a TC plate on a TC ... but was not exactly looking either. Been in nearly every state camping numerous times, and many states pretty often. Oregon does, bottom of page 2: There, now you’ve heard of one. ;) p.s. Since this is on the west coast, it’s just called a ‘camper’ as opposed to those travel trailers some call campers. :p

RE: Honda EU generators, BLUETOOTH, FINALLY!

I wonder why they didn’t make the ECO switchable from the app.At 10:58 in the OP's video, eco is switched on from the app. With being able to shut down the generator and change eco from the app, it does seem to me there are more things to break. For instance, a fault in the remote control system could make the generator inoperable. I didn’t see where he switched it in the app, only that it displays the state of the old-school rocker switch. Notice the cut in the video and that he just mentions it showing that it’s on.

RE: Times Up, Told You So, DirecTV is Dead

. You cannot just paste links into your post like some other forums allow.I can. Your unformatted links turn clickable when you post them? Never seen that before. Trying Google for a test (just pasted): Clickable version (formatted with url tag):

RE: Times Up, Told You So, DirecTV is Dead

I agree 100% and apologize for that. For some reason, the site wont let me post hot links. It has been this way since i joined. Perhaps a conflict with my browser settings or something. Are you using the little earth with chain link icon to post your links? It wraps the proper formatting around the link (“a URL=“ tag) so that it is clickable. You cannot just paste links into your post like some other forums allow. If that icon doesn’t work, you can still type in the formatting manually. Just look at another post with a working link by quoting it to see how.

RE: Honda EU generators, BLUETOOTH, FINALLY!

I wonder why they didn’t make the ECO switchable from the app. That would be nice if you want to turn it off from inside an RV before hitting it with a large load. I can see the Bluetooth as more useful on an electric start model though. More data is always a good thing and I don’t think it makes anything more likely to break.
