RE: Buying a new travel trailer-first time buyer

I think most buyers plan on 25 to 30 percent off sticker price or msrp. Remember..most of these units are slapped together without much quality control and you are at the very low end of the scale at that price.

RE: Black spots on ceiling = leak?

In the environment you live in I would keep some DampRid or the cheap knock off from the Dollar store in the camper all the time. I keep three in my trailer all winter.

RE: Money from government

I'm not going to refuse mine but I don't understand the logic of sending me a check. I'm retired and have a retirement and social security. My income has not been affected by this mess. The working (unemployed) could have benefited more if the gov. was not sending checks to us that are unaffected. We may look for a place to re-direct the money we get.

RE: Optimism in the RV Industry

It would be nice if the RV Execs would use this time to re-think their production methods and put Quality at the top of the list. They could come out of this down period with a new fresh look. Sure they are going to cost more, but when you buy a new unit and it's in the shop for the first 5-6 months, how much has that cost you?

Gas here is only cheaper when you don't need it.

RE: LP Detector 12v vs 120v Price ?

Unfortunately it's like anything else for an RV or boat....twice the price. I guess they know they've got us and can charge a higher price. This is basically what my TT has and I will be using to replace. Comes in black or white. Scroll down for black. just copy and paste model number for CA Amazon. Co detector

RE: Thoughts on the 'need' factor of a main line surge protector

Just for clarity...If you do decide to purchase one, for better protection, you DON'T want a "Surge Protector"...You DO want an "EMS".

RE: Upgrading head and bars only on EQ hitch?

Glad to see they have changed their ways since I traded up to my current trailer. I had to purchase an entire new hitch. They retain their value pretty well so it wasn't a total loss.

RE: Water Heater Relief Device

Lynnmor is correct about air pocket. Atwood seem to have this problem more than Suburban. No need to drain entire tank. try this: 1. Turn off the water heater. 2. Turn off the cold water supply line. 3. Open a faucet in the RV. 4. Pull out the handle of the pressure relief (P&T) valve and allow water to flow from the valve until it stops. 5. Release the handle on the P&T valve - it should snap closed. 6. Close the faucet and turn on the cold water supply. As the tank fills, the air pocket will develop. Repeat this procedure as often as needed to reduce the frequency of the weeping P&T valve.

RE: Upgrading head and bars only on EQ hitch?

Last time I checked they did not sell individual parts. (Bars and head) It was all or nothing. They talked about integrity and liability of a pieced together unit. Won't hurt to call and ask.

RE: Anti siphon valve for black tank flush

Thanks everyone. I'll follow line and keep looking. If it is in the wall I'll just quit using it and go back to pooh wand.

RE: Connecting Satellite Thru Outside Jack

Specs say it is prewired for sat. Maybe the coax you are looking at is for an outside tv. specs

Anti siphon valve for black tank flush

2012 FR Surveyor SV264RK. Can't seem to locate anti-siphon valve for black tank flush. I know what it looks like but it is not under sink in bathroom. When I use BT Flush I get water running from bottom of trailer. Guessing it comes from valve but since chlorplast(?) is in place I can't see anything from bottom. Any ideas where it could be located? No evidence of leakage inside trailer.

RE: Direct TV black and white only

You might try unhooking the HDMI cable and turn the tv on and go to setup. If it displays in color it's not the tv.
