RE: 8 Gauge Wire

If you are 25’ from battery to charger isn’t the run actually 50’ there and back ? I don't know. Is that true??? Its not AC. That has been my understanding . Perhaps one of the electrical guru’s will clarify

RE: Generator Gas Storage

Also for your small qtys non ethanol is not expensive ... Not where I live ! E10 is NOT as bad as people make out ! Just don't store it more than 2-4 weeks and make sure to run the carburetor dry after every use. That along makes it not great for small engines where 5 gals could last all summer

RE: DC to DC charger

I just use a pair of 8 gauge wires from the truck battery to the camper batteries. That eliminates the voltage drop of the 7 pin and puts a nice charge into the camper batteries whenever I drive. I use a 200 amp blade switch that is mounted on the truck battery to isolate the truck battery when the situation calls for it, but that is rare. The reason it’s working for you , and also for me , is the age of the truck . Newer trucks , last decade , have smart charging , meaning as soon as the starting batteries are satisfied charging goes way down , so the house batteries would get very little , especially with the voltage drop.

RE: Aluminum vs Steel flatbed

I have had the same aluminum flatbed for 20 years . 15 of those years it has been on a plow truck that saw many many mile on salt laden roads . The underside of truck was sprayed with fluid film every year . The flatbed and truck have held up extremely well under those conditions . I did take some pains to isolate the aluminum from steel where ever I could . Under the use that stated I don’t think you will have a problem with the aluminum .

RE: 36" Hitch Extension for 2" Receiver - Are they Made?

Or is it the reinforcement ring . Did you try the pin from the other side as fa as it will go and does it look straight . Either way it is made wrong .

RE: 36" Hitch Extension for 2" Receiver - Are they Made?

I think the OP said the measurement was from the hitch to the outside of the bumper .

RE: How to rotate dually tires

If the tires age out without rotation, why even think about rotation? True enough . But then how much useful tread life ( $ ) are you sacrificing if your tires are timing out . One other point I noticed in your scenarios is in A you will need tires in 2037 , in B you will have a complete new set by 2036 , again , apples to apples . The scenarios are not mine. But do you suggest somebody do something to wear the tires faster so the tread is gone at the same time the tires age out? Maybe find somebody that drives hard or lots of miles, sell your tires at about half lifespan for the value of tread? No sir , I make no suggestions , there is no need .

RE: How to rotate dually tires

It seems you have switched from a 10 year cycle in Scenario A to a 7 year cycle in Scenario B . Not exactly apples to apples .

RE: Battery Charging on Truck Camper

Put a solar panel on the TC roof & your batteries will be charged on the road, at your camp spot AND when it’s parked at home…. My batteries are fully charged EVERY day by sunlight……. That doesn’t tell much . What size panels , for how long , to replace how many amp hours

RE: How to rotate dually tires

First thing I would do is try the X rotation as your tire guy said and see what happens with the TPMS . If in fact it screws up the display , shame on Ram . To not be able to move an inner rear except side to side is crazy. If it was me I would sacrifice the TPMS in favor of proper rotation and better tire wear . In 65 years of driving I have had 0 blowouts and only a handful of flats , knock on wood . A blowout is instantaneous so it doesn’t seem TPMS is going to be too helpful . Just my 2 cents

RE: Shower Pan Reinforcement

If you have access you might want to inspect the floor under the pan , the give might not be the shower pan .

RE: We knew it was coming...

It’s what usually happens when you saturate a market in a short period of time . The RV market went up 17% and now it’s predicted to go down by 8% , that’s a pretty healthy gain yet they are crying ??
