RE: Tire Size

I would use Goodyear Wrangler HT and skip the ST tires.

RE: new mattress needed, any reason to buy from camping world?

Measure it, many RV mattresses are shorter. You will rarely find the best deal at Camping World, search online for what you need.

RE: RV Magazine

I think they got the right idea printing recipes and reporting about RV resorts. Since so many do next to nothing mechanical and are only concerned with being entertained and fed, why waste the space on those that want to do things for their selves?

RE: Ford super duty 3.31 rear end. Will it be a big mistake. ?

The 3.55 is better for the transmission, it ain't about the drivers comfort or convenience. I wouldn't want to pay for repairs on a 10 speed transmission.

RE: Adding Heat Strips

An oil filled heater puts out 5120 BTU, my $50 heat strip puts out 6000 BTU.

RE: Ford super duty 3.31 rear end. Will it be a big mistake. ?

Of course the 3.55 will do better, all other things being equal. When doing your homework, check that the tire sizes are the same, earlier 6.7s used the 3.55 gears with the 20" wheels and the 3.31 with the 18" wheels, both had the same engine speed. There were a few exceptions such as snow plow preparation.

RE: Adding Heat Strips

But to this point it begs the question - why bother? Given that it's considerably more cost and effort than a few ceramic heaters that produce the same result. Personally I wouldn't want to put the time and effort into a heating system that still leaves me feeling cold. I don't think I've ever read anything on this forum over the years that say that heat strips are awesome. Almost invariably, all posts agree, they marginally work if it's not really cold to begin with. Because the cost is quite low, they don't need to be stored, they are always ready to go and a thermostat controls them. I have never seen anyone give them a chance to work, only instant gratification comments.

RE: Adding Heat Strips

Since heat strips put out about the same BTUs as a portable heater they will raise the overall temperature about the same. When people complain about little heat from them, they aren't considering the considerable air flow from the air conditioner fan. The air temperature from the ceiling vents will be much less than from a small portable heater but there will be much more air. That flow of air that is only a few degrees above the ambient air temperature may feel cool, but just leave it on. As the temperature rises it won't feel so cool when near normal room temperature.

RE: Crummy headlights - Can't see, need upgrade

My headlights got much brighter recently, right after cataract surgery.

RE: best propane hoses

Have hoses made at a local propane dealer to avoid the cheap imported stuff.

RE: Do you need Commercial Plates in NY to tow a trailer?

I would bet that passenger cars are allowed to tow things, so why not your funny looking big passenger car?

RE: 12 volt DC problem

It is someplace well hidden with no access and I'll have to remove some wall panel or shelf to get to it. Any one with a 37 foot Forest River Wildlife trailer with a 50 Amp service know where it is ? Guy Turn on many 12 volt items and listen for the fan.

RE: Drill Holster (tip)

There is no reason you have to have the stabilizers down before SHE can go inside. If it is late in the day, I might wait till after coffee the next morning.

RE: Quality Decline since Covid

Wait till you find that those "lightly used" trailers are heavily abused by novices.

RE: Propane regulator?

Use the yellow Teflon tape on gas fittings.

RE: Battery origin

Well, it does have a 3 year replacement/ 2 year prorated. Yes, they did replace the batteries, but after sandblasting and painting battery trays and two destroyed windshield washer pumps, I had enough.

RE: Battery origin

Apparently the Walmart buyers will go to the ends of the earth to save a dime on their product offerings. I suspect that they really beat on the battery suppliers and may explain why I had multiple battery failures. I won't buy another.

RE: Plumbing pressure relief

Accumulator tanks are now required at the hot water outlet pipe of water heaters on residential construction and when replacing WHs in existing homes. I believe that is local codes, it wouldn't make sense for those on a well with an open system that has no check valve after the tank. A "properly" installed water well WILL have a check valve at the pump. Never want water to flow back into your well. My well driller put a check valve above the submersible pump down the well.. I have an additional check valve between the pressure tank and well head for good measure. Correct, the check valve(s) is on the PUMP side of the tank, not on the HOUSE side. The tank has the air pocket to keep pressures from going too high. What I said before is correct.

RE: Toilet Mystery

I didn't see where he ever drained the fresh water tank. Just because he "never" uses it doesn't mean that it is empty. A faulty check valve or other faults can fill it when connected to city water.
