RE: filling fresh water tank

I always taste the faucet water before filling. Also travel with a full tank just in case. We carry some water bottles also just in case - knowing we could buy more bottles from whereever. And then there is this year - about to leave for a week and have 7.5 gallons of bottled water. You know - just in case. :B

RE: filling fresh water tank

All tanks have a overflow line which is also how air enters the tank as it empties.

RE: Torque Wrench for WD Hitch nylock nuts

It's always been my approach to buy the tools as needed and if I break something then it won't happen twice.

RE: Torque Wrench for WD Hitch nylock nuts

For one time go to a truck stop, otherwise HD, Amazon, etc carry them.

RE: Best RV repair company, roof replacement Oregon

For me Guarrety RV and CW are off limits.

RE: Best RV repair company, roof replacement Oregon

Contact Premier RV in Junction City and see what they say, I bought the current RV there. Next door is the wantabe Winnie facility, now service only? Stop at Elite in Harrisburg and see what they say and they know the area. I had some work done there but different than what you need. At least these are close.

RE: Tire Pressure

Weight the axles and set the pressure according to the tire mfg load inflation tables. I've often weighted at the free OR scales.

RE: Tail light issues

Replace the bulb socket, check auto store, Amazon etc. Google LED compatible bulb type for your bulb.

RE: Dolly towing and leveling jacks

Like any trailer the hitch is designed to pivot as needed.

RE: Ford F150 battery drain when towing Travel Trailer

AC clamp meters are very common as used for AC work, make sure you get one with DC amp capability.

RE: Dome Satellite is it capable of getting service??

Yes if the dish supports it and you have a multiswitch. DTV Genie is another option.

RE: Ford F150 battery drain when towing Travel Trailer

X2 for a DC clamp on ammeter and voltmeter. Check the battery voltage at high idle with the trailer attached. Check the amp draw on the trailer wire. Load test the truck and trailer batteries. Maintaining the truck battery should be a non issue for the alternator. If the trailer draws to many amps the truck fuse to the trailer should blow, check to see what size is currently installed. Did your "people testers" apply a significant load to the truck battery to confirm that it's being charged at the maximum? Unless you know for absolute certain that the truck battery and alternator are good...

One receiver, HDMI splitter and wireless HDMI to the BR, both TVs watch the same show and make sure you have a RF remote.

RE: Dome Satellite is it capable of getting service??

I tried calling both Dish & Direct TV and never could find anyone who knew anything. I don't think TV is worth the $1800 for a new dish holy cow I wasn't expecting that.They're generally clueless about RVs. For a variety of reasons it's unknown how much longer DTV will transmit SD programming so be aware as it seems to change. For 6 years we've had a single DTV receiver at home that we move to the RV when we travel. All of our recorded shows remain as well and include the ability to skip commercials. $1800 for a roof mounted automatic dish doesn't surprise me.

RE: Dome Satellite is it capable of getting service??

Trees? Yup they block sat signals, this is at my daughters in Redmond for DTV. Also note the lower 32 degree elevation for the PNW. While tools help find the satelites it was complete luck that I parked in the only very limited area with reception. "border=0"

RE: Back tire stuck in wet ground

Jack it up, fill hole, lay down 1" plywood, drive off. 1 1/4" sub floor ply cut in half for both sides?

RE: Gas station air/water station water safe?

When I grew up it was common to drink from our garden hose - that has become unfashionable now - go figure.I'll use my home hose to fill the tank - but fill only and not to remain under pressure.

RE: Gas station air/water station water safe?

Given the potential toxic environment of a gas station I don't use them. Especially a hose used to fill radiators or whatever, think about what on/in the nozzle area.

RE: Battery questions

Discharged batteries should ramp up the voltage to 14.8V for bulk charging and then ramp down to 13.6V for float. (see your battery specs for exact voltage) IF leaving your RV plugged in damages the battery then your charger is rather marginal. Most rigs have loads that cannot be switched off which might expain your 8.8V. And 8.8V is not good for the battery. Posting your battery and charger make and model should get you better input. Ditto for the radio.

RE: Electrical

What will happen if i put a 24volt battery on a 12volt camper without rewiring?Your 12V devices will be destroyed. The battery won't charge if the charger isn't destroyed. If you are very lucky some fuses will blow protecting the 12V devices. Why in the world would you do this?
