Probably the starter capacitor. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PBoOx8YzD_s

RE: How long has your AC run ?

My 5th wheel is a 2002. I just replaced the aging unit last January.

RE: Battery wiring help, please

Plug your RV in (shore power), then test the two battery cables using a multi-tester. If it reads -, you have it backwards.

RE: Tire exploded in Florida

If you have floor vents, be sure to check for damage to the ducting under the trailer. Run a pressure test using the blowing end of a shop vac, closing off all but the two vents farthest from each other..

RE: Running a/c off generator while towing

My AC cools the trailer while I am setting it up (10 minutes).

RE: best route to yosemite

No matter which way you go, you better have reservations. But, I too love going up 395. Time wise? Take the 5 to the 99 to the 41.

RE: Water Tank Fill

Extend the overflow hose a few inches above the fresh water tank. That's how it should have been from the factory.

RE: Teton 5th Wheel

Heavy equipment mechanics carry hydraulic hose and fittings. To raise the 5'er, you'll need a 2 ton jack and a **** load of cribbing...or, if you are lucky, a loader or excavator.

RE: TV mount

Sommething like this? https://www.amazon.com/Drywall-Studless-Install-Bracket-Hardware/dp/B08YDW8HKX/ref=sr_1_18_sspa?crid=2NSKOBHMRHC88&keywords=non+swivel+tv+mount&qid=1654194323&sprefix=non+swivel+tv+mount%2Caps%2C292&sr=8-18-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExNjhUMlJMMERTOUw3JmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwMzQ2MTM1TjRJOTRCWVpPTTBGJmVuY3J5cHRlZEFkSWQ9QTA5Mzk2ODEyWjdRUUhTOEowWldIJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfYXRmX25leHQmYWN0aW9uPWNsaWNrUmVkaXJlY3QmZG9Ob3RMb2dDbGljaz10cnVl

RE: buying RV out of state - what contract to use / other advise

The last time I did something like that, I met the person at the bank that held title and cleared that up in 5 minutes. The bank then printed out the needed tranfer forms and letter of payoff. DONE. No "contract" needed. Now, if the person has the title, just meet them at the local DMV and transfer ownership there. Again, don't make it harder than what it should be.

RE: TV mount

For the money? You can't go wrong with a TCL smart TV.

RE: What's up with CGs?

It's obvious it is pointed towards the revelers like spring break Datona, groups that will pile pallets 10' high and start a bonfire, bring their 1,000 amp speakers and a DJ, or G-string clad "ladies".

RE: Black Tank Odors

Where is this smell coming from? It is a closed system. The only opening is a vent, up on the roof. If you are expecting the tank to smell like roses, give it up, it'll nebver happen. Those chemicals? Waste of money. Just add liquid dish soap once in a while.

RE: 3.42 gears for TC

Thanks, the 18” wheels are standard and the 20” are a add on option. If I go with the 20’s it’s only for looks. I know I’ll sacrifice some MPG and some of the gear ratio. I’d love to have them if it’s not a huge trade off. Those 20's will also decrease ride comfort. Less sidewall.

RE: DC to AC help

So, wouldn't putting a manual shut off just before or after the converter breaker be an ideal/safe way to power up all the RV outlets? A nice little 30A AC switch with a HUGE sign reminding you to shut it off when unneeded?

RE: Not one but two blowouts

Tire "scrubbing" happens too. Most people don't realize what a tight U turn does to a tire, weakening the sidewals to the point it detatches from the bead. That's how my last "blown" tire left this earth. It ripped the cap (tread section) off the tire too.

RE: Newbie Ques for hitch selection

Some uni-body vehicles should/can not use WD hitches. Read your manual.

RE: Fuel Availability

Can't cry about $6/gallon fuel. Ask a Canadian what they are paying.

RE: Residential vs Gas/Electric Fridge?

You'll probably want a 3000+ watt generator, to run the AC anyway, so why not go that route? A 35' trailer might be 50A with 2 AC's, so, with a 3000W generator, you will only be able to run one AC unit at a time.
