RE: Propane hook up for peripherals

Thanks for the good info.

Propane hook up for peripherals

I have what I am guessing is standard 24 gal/100# propane tank on board class A MH and would like to add auxiliary output for BBQ and/or fire pit. Not being acquainted with plumbing of LPG system, I wanted to ask if this is something I can do or should I have done by professional? I was looking at the many connections available at CW the other day, and was confused and didn't know what to look for. Thanks.

RE: Grants Pass, OR (exceptional experiences)

Thank you for sharing the good part of the adventure. Hopefully, these will be the most challenging parts of your new life. Good to hear of the good experiences that help counterbalance some of the complaints.

RE: Rear View Camera

I would guess you can change the setting in the dash monitor. We have a 2018 Tiffin and there are MANY settings in the monitor. Just play with it. Ours left/right and rear are always on while driving, but each go to full screen when in reverse or turn signal engaged. I have adjusted how they are displayed. Your salesperson was not correct.

RE: Buying a new class A

If I had your budget I'd buy a used Tiffin Red. I bought a 2018 Tiffin 33aa Allegro Red in 2019 for $190K and love it. It was used with 9,000 miles on it. I would assume the prices have increased since then, but really have no complaints. We are full timing in it since November. It is our first RV.

Traveling around Lake Michigan

Heading East from South Dakota and decided to go north/south up to Mackinaw or around west/east around Lake Michigan. Our timeframe is late July. Question is is it worth going up the western side of the lake, go through Mackinaw and south back to Rt. 80 and head east? What else should we consider and things to see? Destination is Philadelphia to the east. Appreciate the input.

RE: TPMS suggestions

Another TST vote. Bought system for MH and toad and works flawlessly. I had operator question about compatibility between the 2 valve sensors and called them. "Leave a message.."and **** if a very nice guy didn't call me back in 10 minutes and tell me to call anytime. BTW, never needed booster. Picks up toad sensors everytime.

RE: sell home or not to sell

If you aren't planning to return to the house (as indicated by your post), sell it. By the time you factor in property taxes and insurance, it will be cheaper to pay for a storage unit for a few months. Then you have better options: - If you decide you love the full time lifestyle, you don't have to worry about the old house. Eventually, you can have a yard sale with the stuff in storage (or give it to the kids) - If you don't, when the time comes to buy a new house, you don't have the issue of having two houses with the expenses they incorporate. It makes a much cleaner purchase process and you don't feel pressured to sell the old before buying the new. Very personal decision, but we were in a similar situation. Sold the house, saving about $25,000-$30,000/yr. (and it was paid for) while we drive around the country figuring out what we will will do on our return and where we will return. Didn't know how it will work out, but not having a house to worry about lets me sleep at night. No time commitments and are actually saving a lot of $$.

Deming NM to Holbrook, AZ Rt 180

Kind of a no brainer, but see significant elevation rise on Rt 180 from Deming at Rt 10 north to Petrified Forest/Holbrook. Assuming there is no snow, which is still a question, is that road ok for RV travel? Appreciate the input.

RE: Magnum remote fault

Thank you for the suggestions. I wound up calling Magnum and the tech just said to do a soft reset, which cleared the fault. Still unsure of what it was. Tech said reset usually works.

Magnum remote fault

ME-RC50 remote, Onan8K genny. During power outage here in Texas, I wanted to test Auto Generator Start/AGS starting based on battery volts. Set the AGS up on the Magnum remote and sure enough, it kicked on when it should have...Yea! Then it turned off after 2 min or so, then started up again, then turned off and started again. OK, I disabled AGS and just started genny and it was fine BUT the red fault light is blinking with Fault Test. I shut everything down and disconnected power and plugged in and red fault light will not stop flashing. No other symptom. Everything seems to work fine. Green led Inverter light in basement is blinking as it should while inverting. I found Fault test is the 02 part of AGS set up but can't get it out. Help? Operator error?

RE: Filling large propane tank on the road

thanks for all the input. I can't catch a break this winter. Now in Southern Texas by the border and it's going into the mid 20's for the next 2 days with 30 mph winds. I keep my fireplace/heater on all day and now just making sure pipes don't freeze. I am sure I will burn through most of my propane in the next few days.

RE: Soot on Dinghy

So update...I wasn't paying attention to the issue before a friend of a friend who was a Cummins mechanic, told me there really shouldn't be noticeable dirt/soot. I have attached pictures of the car, the tailpipe and the mud flap that looks like it too has soot on it. I had noticed this previously, but chalked it up to running the engine at a campground where the mud flap was laying on the ground, or close to it, it wasn't hanging as much as laying on the ground due to leveling. The tailpipe looks pretty clean. Even wiping it with my finger doesn't show much. OOps having an issue with loading pictures. Will post separately. https://i.imgur.com/ZBR668Ll.jpg https://i.imgur.com/4RCCFFDl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/h1Ea3o5l.jpg

RE: Soot on Dinghy

Sorry for abbreviation....FOT is Full Open Throttle. I was recently reading about transmissions shifting and that term was used regularly. FOF/Foot on floor will also work!

Soot on Dinghy

Somewhat new to the RV lifestyle and dinghy towing, so appreciate any input. Our Jeep GC gets pretty well covered in soot from our exhaust after 4-500 miles or so. I figured it was normal, but was talking to a Cummins mechanic and he thought it was not normal. I couldn't share any pictures at the time so my definition of soot covered may be different than someone else's so it's all relative. All highway driving, but do need to go FOT on on ramps and passing etc., and assume that will belch some exhaust. Nothing visible at any time. No smoke etc. only about 15,000 on coach. Normal?

RE: Filling large propane tank on the road

OK, update. I did get the tank filled at CG yesterday on our way out. Figured 24 gal tank and gauge showed 41% and needed to get to 85%, so my limited math skills said I needed about 12 gal. +/- or so. In a hurry blocking exit to CG and guy filled it with 17 gal saying I must have been on empty....didn't look at gauge until I got to next stop, and sure enough, gauge shows 96% full. To get rid of some propane, I am using propane hot water heater, but don't think that will "bleed" off excess propane anytime soon. Should I worry about 96% fill on tank?

RE: Camp Margaritaville

We stayed at Margaritaville RV resort on Lanier Island outside Atlanta last month. Very nice sites, but not many activities open since it was so #$%##@@ cold! Not cheap, but would go back when the weather gets a little more cooperative.

Reservations in California

Planning to go to California in April if possible. The CGs don't seem to be taking reservations due to the state Covid restrictions. How are others dealing with this?

Turning Radius w/Ladder

Kind of new to dinghy towing, but have been pulling our Jeep GC for a thousand miles or so. When the installer was reviewing the installation of our Blue Ox/Air Force set up with us, I specifically asked if there was anyway the coach and toad could hit each other on a sharp turn. His response was "probably not", but don't quote me. We have a full ladder in the back and I am thinking, while watching in the rear camera, that if I turn (lock) the wheel to the right, it will hit the front of the toad. Even without a locking turn, it seems very close. I was hoping for a more definitive answer from the installer, but didn't get one. I guess I can go into a parking lot and do my own research, but wanted to ask those folks with more experience what your thoughts were. Thanks.

RE: Filling large propane tank on the road

Thanks all for the input. Asked CG where we are staying, and where we are going, and no delivery available, but now know what to look for. I passed a large "gas" dealer here outside of Birmingham and called for delivery, and was told "NO" we don't do delivery to RVs. I was a bit put off on their attitude and was going to ask if was ok to pull RV into lot, but decided I didn't want to give them business due to attitude. We still have 30% left in the tank. God, I am tired of being cold here down south. Wake up cold, go to bed cold. Took the dog out last night in "freezing fog", and thought I was in the Twilight Zone. Couldn't see the dog at the end of the leash. I have been in lots of weird weather and seen this before, but it was odder than previous because there was no light besides my headlight and it kind of blinded me. That's why we love doing this ....right?
