RE: Recommendations for House Battery Brand, Please

For house batteries, if you can fit them 6 volt GC-2 batteries are the best bang for the buck, be they from a specialty store, or from Sams or Costco. If you get 12 volt rv/marine batteries from a local helmart or other retailer, you will be limited to 12 volt batteries which will start to degrade after only about a 25% drawdown.

RE: Removing Eternabond residue from vinyl and carpet

Whatever you end up using, test it first in as obscure a location as possible in case it causes a visable deterioration to the material. My first suggestion would be "GOO GONE" a common product available in most big box and hardware stores. Goo gone And even it will suggest testing in a small area not readily visable.

RE: This kinda' makes me sad :(

If you need to stay in a Jim Beam price range, but would appreciate something considerably smoother, try Henry McKenna. Very good for a cheap Bourbon.

RE: Campground Breakers - EDITED

If you have a means, check voltage inside when you are starting the AC units. Breaker may be fine if the line voltage has dropped 10% or more because everyone is running a lot of AC units. Remember, as voltage drops, amp draws increase accordingly.

RE: 6 people in an F350

2 in the bed, under a tarp? With seat belt laws, you run the risk of going afoul with something putting 4 in the back seat.

RE: TV recommendations for outdoor TV entertainment center

I believe LED or LCD are the only real choices. Plasma units have a highly reflective screen that would make outdoor viewing difficult other than at night.

RE: Disconnect load before stopping generator?

Like thousands of other things out there,,,,, If you have the option, this is preferred. But I dont think it is ever prescribed as mandatory or your unit will blow up.

RE: Best Southern Fried Chicken Batter

You forgot the Cajun seasoning or at the least, the Cayenne Pepper.

RE: Fridge On Propane Battery Amp Hr Draw??? How Much

Go with the best and largest battery bank you can reasonably afford and install. Few if any are the complaints of,,,,, Too much truck Too much solar Too much power You may be able to find the rare instance of one, but in general the complaints are going the other way.

RE: Southport/Oak Island/Bolivia NC

Contact the marinas in the area, most have dry storage that should work well.

RE: Aggressive Sales tactics at CW

If this was a telephone transaction, the "digital signature " may not exist. I would call my bank to stop payment. Wait and see what stunt they pull then. Check your private messages.

RE: Do Alabama RVs require state inspections

In most states, a class B van will be viewed the same as any other motor vehicle on the states highways, and be required to complete the same requirements. If your cars and pickups have to, the van will too.

RE: Newby Dry Camping Questions

For three days, you can pretty easily modify your behavoir enough to get by with minimal equipment changes. Learn to use Navy showers to minimize water consumption. You have a Genny so plan to use it for a couple hours morning and evening to charge your batteries. You wont get back to 100% but if you get back to 90% after the first night, and to 80% the second night, you will be good for that third day. You will want to get 2 good batteries, and no, a group 27 rv/marine is not a big battery. Either go to a pair of group 31's or better yet, a pair of GC-2, 6 volt batteries wired in series will give you much more usable power. LED lights will help a lot, reefer use on propane uses minimal electric power for its controls, so use it. Furnace is a hard user of 12 volt power for the fan, but are you planning ski trips with the trailer? If not evenings in the 40's to 50's are not that had to get through, set the thermostat back to 60 or a little less overnight, and use an extra blanket. Summer use with a need for AC is the one that is difficult, Batteries cant do much for that unless you go huge. Try a trip in the fall when temps are moderate, and then decide for yourselves how far into winter you are comfortable.

RE: 5th wheels....heck of a following

I can offer no statistics to support it, but lower fuel prices I would guess go a long way toward that end. If Gas stays under $3 as a national Avg, and Diesel under $3.75, they will likely stay popular, but if/when gas gets back around $5, watch the smaller rigs gain popularity again.

RE: Frig issue

Get the make and model of the frig, If you have the manual , check the code for the blinking light, if you dont have the manual, check the companies website, or post the pattern of flashes along with the make and model and model and maybe someone here can tell you what the code is. If it's a Dometic this may help. Dometic manuals

RE: Sequoia Can't Really Tow Anything (Family of 6). Am I Right?

First off, Kudos to you for thinking ahead and looking at this. Most vehicles when showing towing and payload numbers account for the driver when listing the info. So that may help a little. But yes, your SUV is anemic for most serious towing. A small (less than 10%) overage on the payload may be acceptable, but that is a personal call. You can do a few things to help with payload, such as spring or shock mods, but, your insurer may frown on those. The best solution with your current family size is likely to be having a second vehicle and driver to carry the crew, while you carry the house.
