RE: Does have a policy forbidding the discussion of EVs?

JMany on are older/retired/real old. Old people don't like change,Generally speaking, maybe, but I'm 74 and I like new things. EVs are exciting and fun to drive. 76 here and I think EVs will be the way of the future. And rightfully so. Not the near future. Maybe not in my lifetime. But it will happen.

RE: Goodnight Irene, the party's over.

With the build’em fast and push’em out pressure over for a while this may be a good time to special order. Maybe it wouldn’t get pushed thru as fast.

RE: Goodnight Irene, the party's over.

Shipments are down because there is no place to put them. RV dealer lots are packed to the brim with new units waiting for potential customers. Deliveries to dealers was way up but the buyers are not responding with purchases. Gas is way up. And diesel running $1.75 to $2.00 more than gas is certainly not helping with the larger MHs and towable RVs.

RE: Does have a policy forbidding the discussion of EVs?

I think it is because some people can't let there be a decent discussion on the topic and they start the same old **** every time.

RE: Anode Rod Wear

I agree that those rods are still good for another year. I tried changing to an aluminum rod once. After two years it still looked new. Didn’t seem to be doing its job so I switched back to magnesium.

RE: Compounding Garbage Exponentially

How did that announcement have any relationship to the lemon law? :h

RE: Convenience Center Switches

The rocker switches should be replaceable. The little membrane switches and lights are probably circuit board mounted and a specially manufactured item, maybe obsolete if an older RV. I would call American Technology Components.

RE: Chew on this.

Took a long trip last week passing numerous RV dealers. All of them were packed to the rims with new RVs. Looks like new arrivals are way up and sales are way down. Normally would be a good time to buy. But with the high price of new units, the price of fuel (especially diesel), and higher interest rates, the buyers are likely to stay on the sidelines for a while.

RE: RV Parks Near Johnson City, TX

Only one I know of near Johnson City is Roadrunner RV park just south of town. Looks nice but I have never stayed there. There are several on 290 west closer to Fredericksburg, Jellystone RV, Bending Oaks Ranch (formerly a KOA), and a new one called Arch Ray RV Resort. Along with some smaller ones. I go thru that area frequently but have never stayed at any of those. You can use google maps, zoom in, and search for RV parks in that area, see what is there, and read reviews of them.

RE: Major Ecoboost repair, long delays

Don’t know anything about them but as noted above, a possibility.

RE: 1920's 5th wheel

I’ll be the first. Is that an A250? He needs at least an A350, preferably a DRW. And that gooseneck is going to cause frame damage. :B

RE: Route Planning Question

Fastest can get you in trouble also. I have had two GPS that tried but I already knew better. There are GPS units that are supposed to be optimized for RV and truck routing. I haven’t used one but I am sure someone who has will quickly come along with their experiences.

RE: Is there a back flow valve on the hot water outlet

Should be a check valve on the hot water output of the WH.

RE: Trailer Directional not working

Check your truck fuse box(es) to see if separate fuses for taillights and stoplights. You can check the trailer brake lights by using a jumper at your 7 pin connector.

RE: Battery problem?

Is your battery disconnect switch turned to disconnect?

RE: Dealers lots are filling up

More 3/4 tons are sold with gas engines than diesel by a longshot regardless. Could you show us where you got that statistic? That certainly is not the norm in Western States. I know that statistic from dealing with sales managers over the last 20 years or so when it comes to fleet/commercial sales. Where did you get your statistic that it's not the norm in Western states? Visual observation on the highway? The fleet sales is what pushes the numbers toward gas rather than diesel. Most 250/2500 work trucks in this area are gas. Privately owned trucks are more likely diesel even if they are used for nothing more than daily drivers. That may change with the costs of diesel on top of the cost of the engine.

RE: Travel Trailer electrical, - Inverter placement/hookup

Just remember that however many amps of 120 vac power you use you need over 10 times that many 12 vdc amps from the battery to run the inverter (due to inverter inefficiency).

RE: Dealers lots are filling up

I haven’t seen that many 1/2 tons showing up on lots here yet. Diesel prices around here are from $1.70 to $1.85 higher than regular gas. That’s $50-$55 more for a 30 gal fill up. That’s going to make those who don’t actually need a diesel think twice about buying one.

RE: Likely to regret

I also agree with most above. That is far more truck than you need for a 30' trailer. The truck will outweigh the trailer by several thousand pounds. We have been in state and COE parks where that would rule out many of the sites. And the longer sites are typically the most in demand and 1st to be claimed. Generally not a problem in commercial RV parks. If you plan on boondocking in less developed areas, then the size is less of a concern. I know you said only you and your wife, but with a TH in only 30' length the garage doesn't leave a lot of living space. Could get pretty small on extended stays. Look over all the floorplans carefully before writing the check.

RE: Replacement of Suburban water heater...

Or if you wanted to continue to use the inside 12 vdc switch as is, buy a relay with a 12 vdc coil and contacts rated to handle the 120 vac and rated current of the heating element, mount it at the water heater, and wire it in the same as if it came with one.
