RE: Traded in 5th wheel for couples TT

Yes, we made the change as well. From a 32' 5er to a 20' TT. Yes, our daughter ditched us and camping, so having a bunkhouse for she and a friend was not necessary anymore. My wife, dogs, and I have gotten backing into camping at state and national parks. And yes, going where a 32er footer would not easily go. No heavy diesel truck but a smaller truck which is less thirsty on the daily work commute. Don't regret the change a bit.

RE: Handheld electronic gas leak detector

Thanks for the feedback. I have done the leak check on my home LP gas lines in which I installed a few years back on a fairly regular basis (1-3 years). They test fine with soapy water and I do not smell gas. I am now questioning the tank and pressure regulator outside. Did the soapy water sparingly on the regulator, and did not find a leak. I am not smelling gas at the tank on a regular basis. Just wondered if the homeowner electronics were worth the trouble. Have not read any convincing post here yet. Happy Camping!

Handheld electronic gas leak detector

Hi, I was wondering if anyone on the forum has used the Techamor Y201 gas leak detector? If so, what was your experience with it? If not, what units have you tried and recommend? Thanks!

RE: Plate / Dishes storage in small camper

Thank you for your responses. I have not gotten a chance to read all of them. Over the weekend I was thinking thru the design of the dish storage rack design and I discovered the wire corner rack turned on its side looks like it will work well. Just need to give it a trial run. Click HERE

RE: Plate / Dishes storage in small camper

Thank you everyone for your responses. I have not had a chance to read thru all the post yet. Over the weekend I was playing with the corner wire rack I had to get an idea as a mock-up for me to build something. I turned the wire rack on its side and made a vertical plate rack out of it. It appears functional but will require a test run.:) I secured the rack to the rear of the cabinet with a wire shelving hook. The rack is removable for cleaning and such. This seems to be a good quick fix. I will try to get a picture posted soon.

Plate / Dishes storage in small camper

Hi, Was not sure where to post this, but here it is. We are in a small travel trailer again, but not crying there. We have used the same method of storing plates and dishes in all campers we have owned. But for some reason, I am not happy with it any more. Looking for ideas, even if I need to build something. I have a shop.;) This is what we have... If is a vinyl coated corner "shelf" which sits in the cabinet with the melamine plates and bowls horizontal on it. While on the road the dishes side off into the cabinet, ready to attack the unsuspecting person who opens the cabinet once parked again.:S Usually me! I was thinking a vertical rack system (plates turned up on edge)may work better. All units I find pictures online require a lot of space and the plates have individual slots. I was wondering if there is a solution out there that would hold breakfast plates in one slot, dinner plates in another, and bowls in another. The catch is, that I want the rack to hold the plates while driving as well as parked. I have some ideas, but do not want to over engineer / build this. As I mentioned the plates and bowls are melamine material, so they are durable and do not require separation. Thanks.

RE: What do you love about your TT?

BarabooBob, I like that paid for characteristic you mentioned. Mine is TOO! :B As in one payment, paid for. To your other point, easy to park, we finally made it back to our beloved Blue Ridge Parkway this past weekend. We were able to back it right in, first try on a small site. Of all the trailers we have owned, the Sunline 21 ft and the KZ Connect 201QB have been our favorite for two people.

RE: Travel Trailers

First two campers were Sunlines. Nice for the price and light weight. No longer in business. Next was a Sunnybrook Lite. Nice well built and light weight. Also, No longer in business. Next was a Jayco 5th wheel. Quality was better than other we saw at the time for the money. Currently, we have a KZ. Again, good quality for what we looked at on the market at the time. So, my vote would be for the mid to higher series of KZ and Jayco.

RE: Prodigy P2 or P3 ???

Thanks for everyone's comment and suggestions. I went ahead and got the P2 (from Amazon, overnight shipping) to get back on the road (get the TT home from dealer after a recall repair). The P2 worked as I remembered, so I must have run a Voyager, P2, and P3 thru-out my RVing life. I could not find my receipt for the purchase of the P3 11 months ago, so I sent eTrailer.com a message last night requesting a receipt. I received an email this morning with the receipt. I have called Horizon Global twice today for warranty service on the P3. After waiting for 10-15 minute each time I hung up. I have an address for the snail mail route, so I will try it. I figure if I get the P3 repaired, I will either go back to it or have it as a back-up unit.

Prodigy P2 or P3 ???

I did a search, but did not find the info I was looking for. Over the years, since 1990, I have Tekonsha brake controllers. I started with the voyager, then to the prodigy once I moved to the 5th wheel. Never had any trouble out of them. When I upgraded my 3/4 ton truck, I used the onboard brake control and at first it worked well, then started having trouble. I replaced it with a prodigy P3. I sold that rig in 2014, and got out of camping for a couple of years. I am now back in with a small rig. I installed a prodigy P3 in the current truck. Yesterday while towing trailer to dealer for recall, I noticed the P3 display was not lit. I assume no brakes, but with a lite camper it was not and issue for a short drive. The fuse was not blown. The controller was warm. I looked online and it seems there have been quite a few issues with P3s dying. I think my first prodigy was a P2, and never had any issues with it. Any recommendations or experience similar to this with P3? P2 or P3? It appears they have the same functionality, but the P2 does not the fancy display of the P3. I will try for warranty replacement, but I am not sure if I saved the sales receipt, of course it is in the camper.

RE: What do you love about your TT?

I will start by saying... we have owned and camped in a pop-up, 17'TT, 21'TT, 26'TT, and a 32' 5er. We are back at 20'TT. What we like about small TT, especially the 20ish foot size. -Get in most any campground -towable with V6 1/2 ton truck -neo-angle shower -walk around queen -sofa slide -great for 2 of us and our 2 little dogs -plenty of outside and inside storage -it is paid for Small TTs are great for couples with no kids in tow. An occasional over night guess is ok.
