RE: Charging Battery with Solar Panel

1. On my Coleman it's only connected to the battery, 2 extra wires that come out where all the other wires are at the battery. 2. Depending on your battery(ies), 100 watt would be fine. Don't forget to add the charge controller in before the battery connection. 3. Whatever size cable that comes with the solar panel will work. Check on the video to see if this is the same input receptacle. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yxYGaQX5GSQ If it's the same receptacle you need this plug, check prices on line. https://www.zampsolar.com/products/portable-panel-furrion-cable-adapter

RE: Highway Thru Hell floods 2021

Like other questionable areas around the world, why would anyone in their right mind live at the bottom of a drained lake. Not the first time this has happened either.

RE: Tub Drain

Sorry but the last thing I'd use there is silicone, sooner or later it will fail. There should be a rubber gasket between the drain and the upper side of the floor of the tub.

RE: Tub Drain

I would suggest that the screw together tub drain is not wrench tightened, no need to, there's no pressure involved. If you can loosen the connection, see if you can possibly push the P trap connection upwards and then re tighten. Not a bad idea to stiffen up the bottom of the tub, I still have to do my floppy shower floor next spring.

RE: Winter battery maintenance

Bring them home. Mostly so that somebody does not want them more than you. There is no need for a maintainer. Every month, maybe two, give them a charge enough to bring up to full charge. Wet cells in good condition will only lose about 10% charge per month in storage. I find it amazing the amount of info people put out there when it comes to batteries. Idle batteries, ie, not being on a maintainer do sulfate and once that happens the batteries loose capacity. Your money, quit trying to hose others that like to keep their equipment in good shape.

RE: 5500 Onan starts then dies, help please

Octane has absolutely no effect on the amount of crud building up in a fuel system.

RE: Winter battery maintenance

IMHO, batteries should not be left on a maintainer continuously. Hook your maintainer to a mechanical lamp timer and charger for about 4 hrs per day. Everyone has opinions and we all know about the smell. Battery maintainers are just that, made to maintain the batteries during extended periods of non use. I've had batteries last as long as 12 years (boat) and 10-11 years on the trailer. Once the camping season ends, batteries go in the garage on the cement floor, connected to the maintainer full time until next spring.

RE: Refrigerator Smell - Yuck!

Well clean it out every time after camping and leave the door open. some say leaving a cup of real ground coffee in the fridge will absorb some of the aquatic odour.

RE: How could this be?

Winter and summer gas formulations are a thing... Diesel #1 could cause a small dip in mpg because of the increase cetane. well, #1 has a lower energy content/gallon, that's more the cause of lower mileage, not the cetane rating. And about now is when "winter blend" diesel starts showing up at the pump which is either #2 with additives to lower the cloud point, or #2 and #1 blend, or a combo. But in any case expect a drop in energy/gallon with winter blend= lower mpg. I had to bite my tongue for a while, somebody from the left coast trying to tell us about diesel fuel, lol.

RE: Water pump question

Where would I add a winterization kit or use an existing fitting to add antifreeze to my system? It has to be added on the inlet side of the pump. If you get another hand threaded fitting and about 4 feet of appropriate sized hose, you can switch out the filter side with the short piece and stick the hose in a jug of RV antifreeze.
Fisherman 10/18/21 07:30pm Travel Trailers
RE: Water pump question

I would believe that filter is on the inlet side of the system, no sense trying to run debris through the pump. That's how both mine have worked.

That was an awesome trip, super nice write up to go along with it. May you enjoy many more trips like that.

RE: Cold weather, generators, and campgrounds

My cartoon bubble: #1: Man did you hear all those generators last night cycling on and off? I hardly slept a wink. #2 Uhh, that was our furnace fan cycling on and off all night. In my rig the furnace cycling would be much louder than any generator noise sourced from "many" surrounding camp sites with the RV buttoned up to keep out the cold. In fact, I cannot imagine hearing a nearby generator from the inside of my RV in these conditions. Note that I am not a fan of generators in campgrounds even during the day. As for the "rules are rules" folks, rules are at the discretion of the enforcing authority to enforce as they see fit. I have to agree with you, two neighbouring trailers with furnaces cycling make more noise than my Honda 2k eu.

RE: In a quandary

It's a game of numbers and if anyone is following them you may see that even those fully vacc'd can still get it and end up hospitalized, still pass it on to others whether they are vacc'd or not. Of those that are not vacc'd, the underlying factors such as pre disposed medical conditions,ie, diabetes, etc or lifestyle,ie, obese tend to suffer far worse. I would also throw in a number of how many people are coming to your family get together, the bigger the number, the bigger the risk. I know my family members "don't poke the bear", ie, go to Wmart, Costco and other shopping venues that are still crowded beyond reason. To each their own.

RE: Running lights on cars

Those people you mention are probably doing "other" things or just plain expecting the rest of the world to accommodate their inability to concentrate on the right things to do, in other words careless. That's why I like my dash cam, my story, their story and the facts.
