RE: Portable Jump Starter

There's tons of those devices on Amazon, you can read the reviews. Costco has had one for a while at about $60. I worked with a gal a while back that had some electrical issue with her car causing the battery to go dead. She carried one of those jump starters in the glove box and used it all the time. I thought about picking one up but not sure how much I'd use it.

RE: Nissan Titan Cummins 5.0L

The Titan was never a big seller. A buddy has an older one and likes it.

RE: New Ram is awsome!

Very nice truck. Congrats! The computers are never very accurate. Did you happen to write down the mileage and gallons used and check your MPG that way too? Not too sure about that. After watching a few FLT mileage runs the computers were pretty close on Rams and even lower than the hand calc at times. Always wondered why folks say they're not accurate. Doesn't the computer know exactly how many gallons you've used and exactly how many miles you've gone? Personally I don't bother doing the hand calc. I figure the mpg display is close enough.

RE: Rockwood 5th Wheel- suspension?

My Rockwood trailer has TorFlex suspension, not leaf springs. That's probably it.

RE: Stink!

Flushed tanks pretty well. Still stinks. Doesn’t stink under the sink so the new valve is working. Wondering if it isn’t something from the trap to drain. Check the trap under the shower or tub. Usually there's an access panel you remove to take the trap off. We had that problem once, ie, gunked up trap. Also it will either have a vent pipe to the roof or one of those cheater vents you just replaced

RE: New Ram is awsome!

Love my 2016. The newest ones are even nicer. My son just bought a new Ram 1500 with the 5.7 Hemi. Beautiful truck and the payload rating is higher than my 2500.

RE: Stink!

I pulled a drawer out and saw it but I couldn’t remember what they were called In the construction trade we call them "Studor vents". If that's not the problem, check up on the roof for a missing vent cap and a nest built in the vent pipe And make sure you get the Studor brand with stainless steel internals. It will be white. The cheap black plastic ones like shown have a cheap rubber flapper valve but that's what all the rigs come with.

RE: Apple's cooperation with Chinese officials

I can't find anywhere to enter my dogs name as a password in my flip phone. Richard One reason they dont make flip phones is its cheap,also the battery can be replaced when it dies. All those new touch screen phones are great,but when battery dies you cant REplace it,you need to buy new very EXpensive phone Waste o resources and keeping people spending money. ??? I've replaced several batteries in iPhones. About $10. Comes with the tools. Simple. YouTube is your friend

RE: Roadside Assistance Companies

I'll do that. Anyone had experience with State Farm for roadside assistance? Everything I have is insured with them. I've never heard of them having roadside assistance programs. They may offer it as an add on in which case you'll probably get Coachnet like Progressive does.

RE: Roadside Assistance Companies

Doesn't anyone use your own insurance plan for this? I do with Progressive but they actually contract with Coachnet You get Coachnet when you add roadside assistance with Progressive

RE: Best place to buy Dometic Brisk Air 2 top unit

Try PPL: PPL Motor Homes I've bought parts and appliances from them for years and never had a problem. X2, Tweetys and Etrailer both have good reps too Have you checked Amazon?

RE: shower head

Oxygenics X5 So much more water pressure and so much less water used! we have used electrical tape wrapped around our propane hoses. Seems to help. X6 and they now come with a shutoff button

RE: Honda 2200i or Honda 2200i Companion?

If you want a red Honda, i would do the companion... At least you will have the ability to plug the camper directly into the 30amp port. It is NOT a TT30 port ! It is a twist lock 120V 30A NEMA L5-30. An adapter is still required. You beat me to it. Never understood why they went with the 30A twist lock and not the 30A TT like trailers use. You still need an adapter. Maybe someone can explain the logic because I never saw the need for the Companion.

RE: ongoing generator issue

5500 watts should start a 13.5k AC with ease and 6300 surge is waaaaay overkill. The info I have from Duotherm specs a 3500 watt generator for a 13.5. I would suspect another problem. Any inexpensive watt meter will not do you any good as they are not fast enough to measure LRA, locked rotar amps. Which is starting amps when the compressor first kicks on, lasts only a micro second. Is there another RV around you could hook up to and try and start their AC or can use their gen to try and run your AC, that might isolate the issue or hook up to shore power to test AC. My best guess is the start capacitor on the AC is going bad, my way of dealing with it, not having the proper tools to test is to replace the start capacitor. Does not take an electrical degree and should be $20 or less, if it is not the issue, you have a spare capacitor. Google or you tube replace RV AC start capacitor. Disclaimer, I am not an electronics guy, just another RV'er trying to get by. Fwiw my daughter's 3400 watt Champion genny runs her 13.5 AC with ease

RE: Storing with blank tanks 1/4 full???

Thank you everyone for the helpful suggestions. To answer a few questions in the thread... The campground we were at didn't have a dup station. They drive around a mini backhoe with a waste tank trailered to pump out waste they only pump on weekdays and we left on a Sunday.... hence 2.5 days with of poop accumulated. My son literally lit it up as soon as the dump truck pulled away. As for a sewer hookup in my yard... unfortunately it's not an option in my town. I like the idea of dumping in my home toilet. I'm going to look into that option. Thanks to everyone for the help and suggestions. Sewer Solution allows you to dump into any sewer clean out using a 3/4" hose. Research it on YouTube for more information. Not a fast way to dump but works great at home when You're in no hurry

RE: White hose

Ron3rd: Your link is the same hose now available at Walmart Could be. Just don't buy the cheap white hose they sell. Total junk.

RE: White hose

I've had very good luck with the Camco blue water hoses. Forget the cheap hose from Walmart; I've thrown away a couple of those. They kink so bad they're virtually unusable. I bought the Camco 20 ft. hose that breaks down into two 10 ft sections which I found to be handy if you don't have to go very far with the hose. They don't kink and they're very heavy duty. Would definitely buy this one again. I could not find that 20 ft. one anymore on Amazon but it looks identical to the 50 ft hose posted in this link and they offer it in a 25 ft too: CAMCO RV FRESH WATER HOSE

RE: Replacing Norcold Fridge: get 2 way or 3 way?

I've never seen the need for 3 way (12v) and have never missed it. We run on propane when on the road. Never a problem.
