RE: Great video about generators, ground rods, bonding, etc.

My impression is that we should probably always bond ground/neutral on our portable generators when using them to power our RVs. There's always lots of conversation about EMS systems requiring it.

Great video about generators, ground rods, bonding, etc.

I have some ancient electrical training that was navy specific, so I was kind of fuzzy on some of the topics. This made it all easily understandable for me.

RE: Fleetwood prowler 25Z where is the breaker panel?

That's where it is on my Fleetwood trailer too.

RE: Patching an enclose underbelly

Eternabond is ugly but it work well for that application. And it doesn't show anyway.

RE: New Travel Trailer

I thought the OP said 7000 lbs loaded. Interestingly, my Ram 1500 with coils springs tows my 6500 lb trailer absolutely rock solid. I don't even know what the relationship between coil springs and white knuckles is all about. I call BS. There's a couple on youtube that fulltimes in their 7000 lb Grand Design that's pulled by diesel Ram half ton. They've towed coast to coast with no problems for about 5 years now.

RE: Vinegar Treatment

Be sure to rinse any and all areas surrounding the water heater after you drain it. The vinegar corroded the door hinges and other areas really bad. I used the 25% vinegar solution for my system.

RE: Replacement Awning Fabric

I'm getting ready to replace my 18 year old awning today. It lasted that long because I ran two strips of Eternabond along the top section. How wide a roll did you use? 4", 6" wide or wider? Two strips = how may inches covered? Thanks John I used two 4" strips for a total of 8". It covered the entire top half of the awning when rolled up. I don't know much about awnings, especially newer ones. On mine, I was able to lay the awning flat against the side of the trailer by putting the legs under the trailer. That made it easy to attach the Eternabond. I should note that the Eternabond eventually looked rather wrinkly but staid securely attached to the awning. Not pretty but very effective.

RE: Thinking about the next Tow Vehicle

Though I think the newer gas V6s (non-turbocharged) would do what you want, I think they would work hard. Just about any V8 (or equivalent power) truck would do well for you. I firmly believe Ram builds a lot of play into their numbers. Their GVWR is miles from their GAWR. My 2015 Ram with 5.7L V8 tows our 6000 - 6500 lb trailer with ease and stability under all conditions. And that's with various loads in the truck that are usually over the GVWR, but under GAWR. I agree with the statement earlier that anything in the last 8 years or so would be adequate as long as you go by the manufacturers numbers and it's been well maintained.

RE: 2005 Durango 5.7l

It's body on frame. I used use an older Dakota for similar service. As long as you have the gearing, and a reasonably good antisway wd hitch... why not? I would do it. JMHO

RE: best way to recover a roof

What about those companies that spray or roll on a roof that's guaranteed for life?

RE: TT Roof Treatment

I always maintained the roof and sealed any potential leaks before they happened. I applied Eternabond all the way around it back in 2005 or so. I also used Eternabond on any damaged areas (branch snags, etc.). Hengs covers nicely, using a roller and/or brush. I put on three coats, using 2 gallons on my 18' roof. It sticks to the Eternabond just as well or maybe better than it does to the original rubber roof. I had one little spot that lifted on the rubber roof after I used Gorilla tape to temporarily secure something up there. I'm very satisfied with it.

RE: TT Roof Treatment

Somebody already mentioned Hengs. I will second it. It was simple to apply, reasonably inexpensive and has held well for over 3 years now. If I need to, I can always coat it again.

RE: Drill motor for stabilizers

I prefer drills to impact drivers for that job. Much quieter and fully up to the job as long as you opt for 18v or higher. I used a DeWalt 14v for a while and it did the job ok, until it suddenly didn't. I've been using a Ryobi 18v drill for quite a while now. It's way more than enough. Keep your stabs clean and lubricated too. It helps.

RE: Is there an Air Conditioner using Inverter Compressor

I've been looking at the mini-splits too. But the OP (and me too) is asking about a roof mounted unit that has similar characteristics to the typical mini-split. It doesn't seem that difficult from a manufacturing stand point. Maybe just not enough market to justify the upfront costs. Too bad.

RE: Making my onboard generator quieter

Agreed! CharlesinGA provided a great example of the improved sound. I would opt for that mod in a heartbeat.

RE: Trying to figure out what trailers I can tow

I still don't understand that low towing capacity number, but regardless, I think that truck would easily handle that trailer.

RE: Trying to figure out what trailers I can tow

I don't think that yellow sticker is an accurate representation of what the truck can tow. Of course, I haven't noticed where you said the truck had the tow package which includes a class IV hitch. My 2015 with the same engine, transmission, and gears, can tow well over 10,000 lbs. The caveat of course being the payload. If you're dropping enough coin for an Airstream, I think I would lean toward a 3/4 ton too. Might as well have some wiggle room.
