RE: Dometic Fridge stopped working in cold weather? Ideas?

The fan is side is a 12V fan as are the fan/fans in the outside cabinet. Did you check the battery when you replaced it? A shorted cell could cause intermittent power to the 12V side of the refer. If you belong to the iRV2 forum send a message to Old Biscut he's an expert on RV refrigeration. His answers are always detailed & backed by manuals.

RE: Help!!!! Travel Trailer Back in

Practice practice practice, and here's my tip. I saw the other about 6 o'clock but this might woke better. Hold the top of the wheel with both hands, which way do you want the back of the RV to go? Your thumb will point the way you need to turn the wheel. Depending on your RV some turn quick so when you see it move it's already too late, you need to learn yours and may have to anticipate when. The shorted it is the quicker it's going to turn.

RE: Will it be difficult to find a reliable 5er on a 20K budget

Heck yeah, I think the $5 gas that is coming will change the market. $5 a gallon diesel, actually $5.15 in New York back in 2008 didn’t slow us down and the roads were full of RV’s. Yep I paid 4.95 in WA. Gets that high I just cut miles traveled but still travel. As for the original question, my son just picked up a pristine 25 year old 34ft 5W for 8K. New tires, new battery, and still had blue tape on the stainless around the sink. Dated interior but very functional. One of the first aluminum framed RV's I know of. The 5W was stored local inside by the original owner from TX. It was taken to the lake used weekends & summer vacations here in NM. So far the only repair was replacing the heater motor that had bad bearings,$50, likely from non use. They are out there, most RV's are only used weekends so get little real use. Make sure appliances work, pressurizer the water and check for freeze leaks. Take your time they are out there. Some of the blue tapes visible here

RE: Will water lines freeze?

Why haul all of that weight 1200 +/- miles? I would never trust weather forecasts to be that accurate. If the forecast is off by 10 degrees, your pipes can easily freeze up. I would drain the fresh tank and blow the lines out with air. Fill. your water tank when you get to camp. This is the best advice here, leave it winterized until you get there. Why take a chance something freezes. Carry a refillable water jug, I use 3 gallons and carry a couple. You will have water to flush, drink and cook enroute. Even in good weather I only carry about 15 gallons of fresh, for toilet, washing hands etc. other tanks empty. You can figure about 5 gallons a minute on average filling.

RE: Yoko Geolander GO15 A/T LT Tires ... Any good.??

I have them on my 5W and run them on every P/U I have owned, I have them on my F350 now. Great tires wear great, just remember to rotate. The only down I know of is they are not carried in every store. I put new one on two years ago and got a 1/4" screw in a month old tire. They replaced it but had to order one to match, the 350's got stock 20" rims.

RE: Your RV Magizine SUCKS

Add me as another will not continue - check the Escapees Mag it's still about RV's and people.

RE: Patching Coroplast

Use aluminum tape, water proof, cheap,& available most hardware and big box stores. Mobile RV repair told me to use it, a year now and 15,000 miles, no sign of coming loose.

RE: Occupied RV Fire

That's sad. And I doubt she has adequate insurance to replace it, even if she could replace it, and now she's homeless. It must have been an older heater. All the space heaters I've seen in several years have a tip over switch that cuts them off when they fall over. That was my first thought ................................

RE: Decal Replacement

Not wanting to be a "smart a**" but if my RV broke down in the road in front of a "Camping World" I would call a wrecker to haul it somewhere else...

RE: Fuel mileage

There were few F350 CC SRW anywhere, most were DRW. Now you got me wanting to drive the 2020/2021 if I can find a SRW. My 15's stock with a programmer that's supposed to boost 50HP & I forgot how much torque. I figured the 10 speed would help both in towing & mileage.

RE: Fuel mileage

The dash computer tells me I get about 20-22 hwy not towing. 14-16 towing the FW. The 10 speed tranny makes a world of difference and for 2020 there was a noted increase in HP and torque. I couldn't be happier with it. OK you trying to talk me into a new truck? I have a 15 6.7 CC 3.55 gears and the most I have ever seen was 16 being nice with no tow, with the 5W 12-13 head winds 10. The 10 speed make that much differance?

RE: No brakes on trailer

Have you checked the trailer for a fuse or circuit breaker? Start at the trailer brake and check for voltage and work forward. You should be able to get under w/o jacking up the trailer,also look for bare wires where the electric brake comes out of the axle, common place for wear through outer insulation.

RE: Western Washington to Nashville

Head to I-90E to I-82 to I-84 to US6 to US191, head to Albuquerque and catch I-40 east. Mid April the Interstates should be clear.

RE: New to this

Any Ford F250 - F350 after 2011 will have the 6.7 power stroke diesel almost bullet proof. I have owned 2 7.3 ford diesels a 99 & a 2000, good engines but the newer technology had more hp/torque and better mileage.

RE: Fuel mileage

F350 SRW 6.7 pulling 14K 12-13. Join the TSD Fuel program, free to join, lots of info on the net, I saved right at $1000 dollars last year even being locked down. I actually added an 80 gallon transfer tank to maximize my savings.

RE: Cellular blinds: Should I switch or not ? PLEASE CHIME IN!!

I dumped the mini blinds for MCD day night shades. Day shades like a screen so you can see out not in, nights more like black out shades. There are some other companies the make similar, not cheap but to me well worth it.
