RE: Dogs that dont bark at people

Here's our camping buddy at home. She doesn't bark now that we've trained her - but at only around 8 lbs. we have to be real watchful when camping that a bird of prey doesn't come down and swoop her up: https://i.imgur.com/Bm2wsS5l.jpg Is she a Havanese?

RE: Suggest a sewer hose kit.

Be careful with Rhino. They changed their design in the past couple of years and they've been having issues. Mainly the ends coming apart. Read the reviews on Amazon carefully and you'll see what I mean. They used to be great but I'm not sure about now. Nothing against Rhino but this is what I found in my hunt for new hoses this year. I bought the Revolution hoses. They seem pretty good and cheap at Walmart.

RE: Maximum length for 1500

As for length my trailer is 33' and I tow it with a Ram 1500 and it tows fine. I use an Equalizer hitch. It's 6600 dry and 7200 loaded. My last trailer was 33' long to and I towed that with an older Ram 1500. Again no problems with the length. As far as weight goes I can't comment on that. I don't know Chevy's that well.

RE: Lost keys

Dealers have universal keys but they only open the door latch not the dead bolt. They may open it for you if you tow it to them. Then just replace the lock with whatever type you want. A locksmith may be able to get it open for you to. Also the storage compartment keys are universal unless you have a newer slam latch. RV dealers sell those keys. They are CH751 keys. Can you crawl through there to get inside?

RE: Starcraft Star Stream 2007 Leaking Skylight

I agree, hard pass on this trailer. Ken is right, the damage you see may only be the start of it. This is one can of worms best left for someone else to open.

RE: Narrowed it down to 2

Honestly you'll find problems and praises with both trailers. It's the same with any trailer. I'm not biggest fan of FR trailers but I don't hate them either. However I never owned a Surveyor. I had a Salem and the fit and finish left a lot to be desired. Other than that it was a solid trailer. It's a cr*p shoot. Azdel construction is a plus, at least I think it is. If they are at the same dealer you only have to decide between trailers. If they are at different dealerships then consider the dealerships to. Chances are you'll have to deal with them at least once in the first year. I had to with both our last two trailers. Both were new and they were both bought from the same dealership. That wasn't planned it just worked out that way. They did good both times.

RE: I hate dinettes

How about the best of both worlds. Today we picked up two chairs from a local thrift store and I pulled one of the benches out. The wood color just about matches the chair rail perfectly and the chair back pattern matches the Sandalwood design. We contacted Aspen Trail to see if we could buy some material to recover the chairs to match perfectly. If not we'll just use some brown vinyl that matches the rest of the furniture. The chair covers are black vinyl now. My wife wanted chairs because the bench was not good for her back but I wanted the extra storage. So we both got what we wanted. https://photos.app.goo.gl/kkppXA8ga65PYUkUA

RE: Picking up new camper

thanks everyone. Now soon my next purchase may be a different tow vehicle. I have the Ram 1500 with a 3.6L v6 and it's rated to tow 7340lbs as it has the 3.55 rear end. but in the 1.5 hour ride home I'm not sure if i'll be happy with it. Takes a lot of revving. It got up to speed ok, it could have been worse, but I had no camping gear loaded up yet. I'm wondering how they get the towing numbers, seriously. I had a 2003 f150 with a 5.4L that was rated to tow 8000 and I towed a coachmen at 6500 loaded and I could tell that it was back there with that truck. this truck will do it, but i dont think it likes to. Yep, time for a Hemi. Rated 8600lbs with 3.55 gears. Plenty of power for my TT. It's 7200lbs loaded.

Congratulations on the trailer. It looks really nice.

RE: I hate dinettes

Everyone has different needs and travels differently. There is no 1 Answer and to say "I'm doing it right you aren't" is quite arrogant imo. The way I see it this is pretty much the bottom line. To each their own.

RE: Norcold N305 fridge not working

No problem. That's what we're all here for. To help each other out.

RE: Norcold N305 fridge not working

Check the black tank and tubing in the outside fridge access panel. Is it getting hot? It should be. That's where your ammonia is. You'll probably hear it bubbling too. That means it's trying to cool. If it's getting hot try disconnecting the thermistor wire. It will be inside the fridge clipped on the cooling fins. It may be wired in with the fridge light. Mine is. That will put the fridge into max cool mode as it were. If the ammonia tank is getting hot and the thermistor is disconnected and it's still not getting cold the cooling unit might be bad. Edit: One other thing. Again if the ammonia tank is getting hot, go on the roof and take off the fridge vent cover and look down the stack to see if anything is blocking the vent. That would cause it not to cool as well. I have a Norcold and my trailer is at the dealership getting the cooling unit replaced right now. Fridge worked on the first camping trip but not the second. Our trailer is a 2018 but we've only had it about 3 months. Bought it brand new as a left over so yes new fridges do break down. Let us know what you find.

RE: Refrigerator not working Norcold N611

We've only ran the fridge one other time and we were level. It's a brand new trailer.

RE: Refrigerator not working Norcold N611

Unless you are way off level, it sounds like the cooling unit is plugged and there is not much of a fix for that. Your the winner. The cooling unit is bad. They have the new part on order and it's being covered under warranty as it should be. We should have it back in time for our next scheduled trip in July. I know it's unusual for something to fail that quickly but in my line of work I've seen brand new parts come out of the box bad so I guess anything is possible.

RE: Refrigerator not working Norcold N611

Our trailer is at the dealership. I'll let you know what they find.

RE: Refrigerator not working Norcold N611

This should not be happening. You said new trailer, it must still be under warranty It is. If it was a quick easy fix, I'd do it. But since it isn't, I'll be calling for an appointment on Monday.

RE: Refrigerator not working Norcold N611

You checked the flue where the burner exhausts, but did you check the entire ventilation area up thru the roof vent? Yes, I went on the roof and took the rain cover off and looked down.

RE: Refrigerator not working Norcold N611

Just talked to one of the RV techs where I bought it and he said to check to see if anything is blocking the chimney. So that's my next step. Edit: No blockage. Back to square one. Looks like it may go in for some warranty work.
