RE: Pinbox moves?

Where should the measurement be taken? I have an extended pinbox so the closer to the end of the pinbox, the more pronounced the flex

Giles Countyl, Virginia

Has anyone ever stayed at Gentry's Landing Campground on the New River? It has mostly permanent sites but does have some regular sites but there are not many reviews anywhere. It looks like it could be a great kayaking base camp.

RE: 5G cell phones, need to purchase?

What is this 4G of which you speak? At my home, sometimes is is still 1X and 3G on a good day. I would be really happy if I had consistent 4G. Not sure when 5G will ever make it to the rural areas

Parallel generator connection

I have 2 Champion 2000 watt generators and the Paralink kit. I usually just run one to charge the batteries and I have never run the pair long enough to run out of gas. My question is what happens when one runs out of gas? Does the paralink shut off the entire connection or will I just get the power of one generator? Thanks

RE: Weboost vs. Smooth Talker

I live in a rural area where I have to have a booster to have signal in my house or metal shop. I have the WeBoost in the house but was unwilling to put another $500 for one in my shop. I took my chances on a $50 outfit on EBAY for the shop. Very little difference in performance in the $500 setup vs. the $50 setup. Just make sure you get the frequency for your needs.

RE: RV carport/shelter

I got Carolina Carports to put up a 18' x 36' with 12' legs for my 31' fifth wheel. I have been very happy with it

RE: Should I convert my Gooseneck to a 5th wheel pin?

I have a fifth wheel camper and 2 gooseneck trailers. I have been thinking about changing the other 2 trailers to 5th wheel but I am just too concerned about my B&W 5th wheel hitch having enough movement for some of the places I take the trailers. If it wasn't for that, I would have already set them up

RE: Venting Indoors

Are you sure that it is the RV vent and not another building drain pipe which is open and allowing fumes to come back into the building?

RE: Generator question

My guess is the oil level sensor also. It might be just low enough to not be a problem on smooth road or sitting still but shut it down if you hit a bump

RE: CPAP Battery for Boondocking

If you can put in a 12v outlet near the bed, this 12 volt cord will probably work fine. Like others have said, the heated humidifier is the biggest power hog on the machine Dreamstation 12v cord

RE: Needles Highway (too big?)

I do not know how much difference there is between make and year model but our 2007 GMC dually went through. We folded in the mirrors and it looked to be around 2-3 inches clearance on the rear fenders

RE: What should getting wheel bearings packed cost?

Over the for a winter, I had the bearings repacked, new brakes and backing plates on all 4 wheels for around $450.

RE: Rig for two couples?

I used to have a Salem that had a second queen bedroom in the back with a half bath. It was fine with our daughter but I do not have any friends that I would want to be that closely confined with for that long

RE: Army Corps Of Engineers Parks Are Closing?

It is my understanding that Kerr lake facilities in Virginia and North Carolina are closing for a while

RE: Finally added the solar Next up, water storage

For extra water I got a 25 gallon spot sprayer from Northern Tool. I took the spray hose off and put a quick connect for a garden hose and a 7-way plug on the electrical cord. I just plug it into the regular trailer receptacle in the truck bed. You have the tank and pump all in one unit and can fill it up at home or wait until you get closer to your site.

Cargo light replacement bulb

I have a 2007 GMC 3500 and I would like to replace the cargo light bulb with a brighter LED bulb.I would like to be able to get enough light to easily see the level on my pin box. Has anyone used a bulb that is a lot brighter than stock they recommend for this?

RE: Please help me choose between these two portable smokers

Interesting! I am very new to smoking. I have been using a 30-inch unit, keeping the temperature as low as I can and still get smoke. But after 4 hours the bacon is cooked. Does that mean I'm doing it wrong? I slice it up and freeze it and fry it for breakfast and it makes me very happy. But is it not supposed to end up cooked? I don't carry a grill with me, but I could, if that is a better solution. I have a little one that I got for free. I've never used it. I don't really understand how it is different from my propane stove, except that there is a little Hood over the burners. Is that to keep the grease from putting out the flame or catching on fire or something? Do I really need both a grill and a stove? I'm feeling a bit clueless here, but eager to learn! With the Masterbuilt smoker, you can not get enough heat for the smoke without cooking the meat, whatever it is. That is why I use the cold smoker box to actually create the smoke. That way I can keep the smoker temperature low. This picture shows the cold smoker box mounted on the side of an actual smoker.
