RE: Considering first DP - any advice?

Here's something that's mandatory for me. When you bring out the frontroom slide, do the storage compartments come out with it? Mine do. If they don't, it's a real PITA to get into the storage compartments that are back under the slide outs. Bill

RE: Considering first DP - any advice?

Make sure you can get into things like the refer, bathroom and the sink while the slides are closed. Bill

RE: Vinegar Treatment

We used vinegar to clean ours when we got the MH. It seemed to do a good job. To do it right, when flushing you need one of those plastic wands with a 90 deg tip on the end to send the water to the ends of the tank so the **** gets flushed out. Secondly - don't drain the vinegar out onto your grass.............. Third - we bought a two filter system, to use with the filter in the MH giving us three filters. Even in the southwest we don't have a problem calcium, or anything leaving spots on anything anymore. It uses a std sediment filter, a charcoal filter and at the moment I don't remember what the third filter is. Bill

RE: backup monitor

I got a quick replacement from RV.Cams when I was on the road. They sent it to our next campground. Bill

RE: Question for those with an Auxiliary diesel fuel tank

My bed tank is not plumbed in, it has a hand pump on it with a very good filter. If I had to change the truck filter, I'd pump fuel from the tank through the tank filter. I use a hand pump on my bed tank because I have to remove it a couple of times a year to get other loads in like I'm doing today. I have a second matching tank that I pump the fuel into. If I had a bed tank that was plumbed in, I would have a filter on it. Bill

RE: Using a Cpap in my AF 27-5

Your Cpap normally runs off of 110VAC. You should have 110VAC outlets in the bedroom. I'm assuming your 5th has batteries and a converter to supply 110VAC? You can buy adapters to run them off ov 12VDC from Amazon, but there's no reason for you to do that. And no, the USB outlets do not have enough power. Your power supply for the Cpap should use 95 to 100 watts. Bill

RE: Known pros/cons these brands?

I prefer aluminum sided trailers for several reasons which includes not fading like the fiberglass trailers. My preferred mfg is Nash / Arctic Fox. Bill

RE: Where to store through winter without much snow?

In your search for a place with little snow, don't store it in a place will lots of rain like eastern Oregon or Washington. We came back to an RV full of mold. Bill

RE: SpaceX's Starlink internet authorized for RVs

There have been several Facebook groups dedicated to it for over six months. The FCC really had no choice and no one cared about them. Bill

RE: Fuel savings at Pilot/Flying J

I only fill up at a truck stop if I'm pulling in there to sleep. I can always find fuel cheaper by at least $.20 a gallon elsewhere. And yes I drive a 40' DP and a pull a toad. I figure that in the last four years that I got new free steering wheels by not using truck stops. Bill

RE: Disadvantages of flipping trailer axles?

Mine were flipped and larger axles added. This gave me larger brakes and allowed for 16" tires to be used for better margins on weight the axles and tires could handle in addition to raising the trailer. It was a great mod. Bill

RE: I'm on a mission

Have you tried Fleetwood themselves? We've found that on a few parts they've had new batches make. Bill

RE: Garmin 890RV trouble and fix

Is there another way to update your Garmin without using express? The other useful feature of Express is it will tell you how many updates are waiting for your GPS - assuming you have registered it. And there was a new update to Express in May I believe. Bill

RE: Painting travel trailer white to reduce heat in summer?

You should put your money into a second A/C and a larger generator if you're going to AZ for the summer. The winters there are plenty warm for me, I always leave in March. Bill

RE: If’s you’re headed North….

The last couple of years there have been a lot of commercial solar installs going in both on buildings and out in the bush to save money from running the diesel generators. I'm not a green person by any stretch of the imagination, but yes there is a lot of solar power here and I like to see it because once it's paid for, it's almost free electricity from there on. I just received my 400W solar kit for my TT. Installation starts next week and two more 6V batteries. Bill Solar will work in the summer but the initial implication that you will meet or exceed daily output compared to down south is false. Who said we would exceed solar collection down south? I just said there is plenty of solar here to make it worthwhile. It's especially worthwhile for the summer tourism industry that does their main business during the summer. Some one in AZ may get by with 200W, so I put 400W on my RV and will do just fine. Besides, how many people use their RV in the middle of winter well below zero. A few, but not many. Bil Permanent installations only work if they are heavily subsidized but that's often true down south...as someone else mentioned, solar needs basically 100% backup from traditional sources and those costs are rarely if ever considered when you hear about solar costs.

RE: Air line filter

On my 2005 Fleetwood Discovery 39S, I believe it is part of the air dryer unit which is behind the drive axle on the left side. Bill

RE: Planning a trip to Alaska sometime 2023

You can also use a certified copy of your birth certificate. If you don't want to pay for a full passport, buy just the pass port card. A driver's licence will not get you through. There's a lot more info over here. Please check out their tabs. https://www.facebook.com/groups/782032812734226/?hoisted_section_header_type=recently_seen&multi_permalinks=1053833602220811 Bill
