RE: Just a little road trip....

Have a good trip Gary - sounds like fun. Oh and make sure not to cross various lines on a map - according to politicians license plates begin shedding virus’s’z immediately upon leaving um town? or is it health region? Or is it province? Anyway it begins immediately...

RE: Trailer too long for truck?

A ProPride or Hensley Arrow hitch will eliminate the zig zags from the bow waves of large vehicles sharing multi lane roads with you, and the weathervane sway effect of cross wind. I towed with a used Craigslist ProPride for a couple years. Truck and trailer ran like on rails.

RE: 60a DC-to-DC Charger Powered by 220a Alternator

otr - check on line for Ford’s upfitter or body builder manuals - I believe the electrical manual is separate from the chassis manual. There should be alternator output information there and/or a phone number to call. I have a Renogy 40amp DC-DC charger on the project parts shelf. The literature for it states the input draw of the charger can be up to 1.5 times the output (60 amps for a 40 amps out model) and to size wiring accordingly. Ray on the Love You RV u tube channel installed one and showed current measurements. This device is connected to the starting battery not directly to the alternator.

RE: Real world weight sticky?

My 2017 Cirrus 820’s “as equipped” weight placard from the factory includes the options, fresh water, and propane. It is accurate.

RE: Chock RV on snow/ice. NEED HELP!!!

RE: Chock RV on snow/ice. NEED HELP!!!

To release them drive off and then give them a couple gentle hits with something heavy - chunk of firewood - to break them free. If you overdid the hot water freeze in you might have to use hot water to thaw them free again. My 2x6s froze to the ground last time... only seemed to contact ground/ice on 1 of 6 sides, but I COULD NOT break free a few of them. The ice was stronger than the doug fir and I just hammered off pieces of wood, and ended up just leaving some wood frozen to the ground. Ya wood is porous and will really freeze down. Wood does not conduct heat from hot water very well for that thawing method either. I had plastic lego levelling blocks in the mind. The mechanical ice pick method (screws) is better with wood. I fought with levelling on snow and ice once. I park on the tires now.

RE: Chock RV on snow/ice. NEED HELP!!!

What I would do on Canadian ice or hard pack snow is put a full kettle on the stove to boil, go out and place the levellers. Pour a bit of hot water over them so it melts them in a bit. Then go have coffee or tea while they freeze in. To release them drive off and then give them a couple gentle hits with something heavy - chunk of firewood - to break them free. If you overdid the hot water freeze in you might have to use hot water to thaw them free again. If your water tank is empty snow turns into water when you heat it, but it takes a lot of snow.

RE: Snowmobile trailer tire question

I've towed an about 5000lbs enclosed garage trailer on 14" Marathon tires about 30,000 miles. I didn't think to get an alignment when the trailer was new so the first tires were replaced at about 10-12000 miles. After alignment wear is better. The trailer has been towed in all temperatures up to 90F. It's 12 years old. I don't tow it above 65mph.

RE: Is it a sin to modify an antique cast iron griddle?

Cowboy Kent Rollins' cowboy cooking channel on youtube has some cast iron care and feeding information. You can re season rusted cast iron cookware by throwing it in the campfire to burn off all previous seasoning and start a re-season.

RE: Avoiding Low clearance routes

If you choose a "truck/RV" GPS - cruise around with it in "OMG!" mode tow vehicle only for a while so you understand what it is on about when it is in warning mode. Also when you have planned a route with 2 inches to spare under a particular bridge BEWARE of fresh paving under the bridge :)

RE: [SOLVED] Can an inverter on a car charge the house battery?

Who here prefers the sound emissions of an idling fuel injected V8 to the “pleasant hum” of a 3500rpm generator?

RE: No hot water during a freeze

What is not a myth is if the supply line to or from your hot water heater freezes hot water will not appear at the taps. Scout around for where lines are run are they inside the heated space under a cubbard up against a cold wall? If yes open the doors to the space and turn the heat up to about 90. Crack a hot water tap on. When it starts to spit and flow the line is thawed. If you have a small fan to move some air through the space with the doors open that's better yet. If your lines are outside in the cold oops

RE: Love my Fithwheel but looking for more...

I used a 39ft toyhauler - Carriage C-Force for three years, one year full time. It is great once you are on site but big and clumsy for proper explorations. I use a TC on a F-350 with whatever trailer - enclosed for motorcycle garage, boat trailer, canoe trailer, snowmobile - is required for the mission. The truck has an aluminum flat deck so I have storage boxes and space on the deck for truck and camp stuff - so it won't matter what trailer is used. Once I get fully organized that is :)
