RE: breaker keeps blowing

You need to know the voltage before anything else. Get a digital voltmeter that shows the voltage at all times. I use this one: Voltmeter

RE: Co alarm

No propane in use. What could cause this besides carbon monoxide? Dog farts.

RE: Melting wires

Everyone loves those detachable cords, (I hate them) but how many check the tightness of the wires behind the inlet? My guess is that nearly all are never checked and that is a connection within the Styrofoam and thin plywood walls. My inlet fell to the ground when I removed it, all screws were completely loose.

RE: Black Water Accident

If you store the trailer in a garage, it sure is nice to have all the stuff out of the tank.

RE: marginal park power on hot days

The voltage will be the same at both the 50 & 30 amp receptacles. No Not Always. I've tried it out. It could be because the 30 amp plug gets more use and is more wore out but, I know of one park in particular that I always have to use the 50 amp plug to get the voltage high enough to make me feel more comfortable. There can be exceptions, but most are wired to the same feed lines and the only difference you will see is more loss in the small cord to your trailer under load. A worn receptacle can cause resistance and that will show up as heat at the plug.

RE: Missouri hwy 19

it is a scenic road and my rule is NEVER to pull a trailer on a scenic road. My rule is to ALWAYS pull a trailer on a scenic road. Charles Kuralt had it right: "Thanks to the Interstate Highway System, it is now possible to travel across the country from coast to coast without seeing anything."

RE: New Trailer Quality Control

Sounds like you got one of the better ones. RVs are a heap of cheap materials waiting for assembly.

RE: AC quit blowing cold

Low voltage? Could cause overheating and compressor shutdown. A voltmeter is your friend. Where would I check the voltage At any outlet. Best to have a plugin digital voltmeter operating all the time in a easy to see place. Turn off the air conditioner when voltage is down to 105.

RE: marginal park power on hot days

I have a Hughes autoformer for just this reason. It boosts 10% when voltage drops to 113 and provides some surge protection. Much better than an expensive EMS that shuts you down.

RE: Foam air filter disintegrating, clogging carb, alternatives?

Could you just buy foam air filter material and cut your own? I like this idea and ordered one, cancelled the yamaha oem filter I had on order, in part, bc the custom one will arrive sooner but also bc the quality of the oem is sub par from my experience Great! I have foam filters that are 30 years old working well and some that needed replaced in just a few years. My opinion is that the quality of the foam varies greatly by manufacturer.

RE: Extended run, homemade or store bought?

Lynmoor, what is it you are showing in the SPOUTS link? There are a dozen products on that page, and none seem to have a tube extend to the bottom of the gas can I am showing gas can spouts used to fill a gas tank without damaging the top of the fill hole. If you buy or build an extended run tank, it will not work if the fuel tank has a knackered top edge.

RE: Engine surge, generator

DO NOT probe jets with wire, use a bristle from a paint brush. Wire will scratch the tiny bores of these jets causing a change of flow rate.

RE: Extended run, homemade or store bought?

You can buy the parts and assemble a system in your home, or you can buy the parts that are assembled in another home for much more money. All standard parts except for the gas cap which you can get on eBay in a variety of designs. Do not use the gubberment approved gas cans that push down on the tank edge, they will indent the surface caused an air leak that cannot be tolerated with an extended run system. Use spouts like this if needed.

RE: Battery replacements in 2013 Chevy Silverado 2500 Diesel

OP Here, I had both batteries tested today at Advance Auto Parts. Both checked out okay so I guess I'm going to wait and just keep getting them tested. Probably may consider replacing before cold weather. Thanks! Dave Did Advance disconnect the wires from each battery and test w/o them? Just asking cuz it could be possible that may get a good read when it's actually not. But that being said, given the current batteries are 7 maybe 8 years old (time of actual manure date), why not just go ahead and replace them now and not worry wether or not they won't start the truck? You only need to take one wire off of one battery to test them separately. My wonderful Ford dealer had no clue that they needed two separate tests.

RE: Bikes n ladders..

I rode my bike into Washington, DC and got a lesson on values when a "guy" came into the men's room with his bike. This told me everything I needed to know about DC. :(

RE: Cherry Springs State Park

I read that there is so little as in no ligh,t pollution in Cherry Springs State Park inside the Susquehannock State Park, Pa that the Milky Way actually cast a shadow. I would like to sit out under the stars there r lay on hammock or something and see that very much. I see that it has a dump station and restroom but no details if there is any on an RV park. Anyone visited the park? Since so little light is allowed in the park, it isn't really RV friendly, IMO. I would stay at Lyman Run and drive up there with some blankets to lay on.

RE: Battery replacements in 2013 Chevy Silverado 2500 Diesel

there must be away you can disconnect both some kind of part you plug in.I,ve seen the after math of a battery explode ain,t pretty. Start by removing the negative cable from both batteries. Replace batteries and connect negative cables last. Reset any settings that you lost and let the computers relearn all their things. I do the rubber glove thing to prevent loosing settings. You can buy memory savers that plug into the OBDI port or the lighter if it stays hot.

RE: Tuson electronic trailer sway control

Thanks for the review. I put the Hayes Sway control on my rig. 2200 miles and so far have not felt it, but I put it on as another another layer of sway control. Like you it's insurance for that one time you're holding a cup of coffee and you get a sway event. The Hayes activates all the brakes, the Tuson chooses left or right as it decides. Jayco offered the Tuson sway control under the Lippert name about four years ago. They were all recalled due to incompatibility with some integrated brake controllers. I don't know if their issues have been resolved.
