    Tire pressure

    On many forums it can be assumed that there are many complete novices that will read out sage commentaries. Many contributors do post opinions that have some generalities stated as ironclad - such as "Never Let Air Out Of A Hot Tire." As a professional, and for our seasoned members, we...

    Soft kids generation

    We had troubles, hurts, issues but did NOT have social media at our fingertips to amplify our distress so that we would feel sooooo muuuuuch beeeetterr than all the others.... with today's seeming focus on being a victim to grab the most empathy and validation. Our playgrounds, where little...

    CPAP Machine

    When we had a TT... Power supply for my Philips is 12 VDC - so, with our axial queen bed near the dinette, i cut a hole in the back of the adjacent seat for the air hose and ran that behind the head of the mattress and under my pillow for "storage" and ready access. Meanwhile, I installed a 12...

    Need help figuring out how to display my coin collection

    Set them in channels top and bottom with sides so that they can be slid from side to side, much as a sliding glass door can "nest." You could make the "box" frame as wide as 2 or 12 of the plastic display cases. And you can route 2 - 10 channels so you can "nest" the displays but still have the...

    Roadside Assistance

    Towing and service companies are called by all the roadside insurers - sometimes they know what they are doing and sometimes they don't. Make sure you know how to have your rig towed, what type of antifreeze/oil/tranny fluid you need etc. Don't let them talk you into anything exotic, it should...

    Ever not be able to find a place to stay?

    If hard up you can always stay in a local motel/hotel that has a big parking lot. Park the rig and enjoy a secure night, hot bath and attached restaurant - just about for the same price as a some campgrounds.

    Anyone using the Pilot/Flying J phone app when they fill up?

    This is the same post you have in the Tiffinmotorhome forum - maybe you'll get better answers there?

    2020/2021 Winter in the South

    We just returned home to Florida from a 2-1/2 month trip that included New Mexico, Grand Canyon, Denver, Nashville. We did make reservations at the key places well in advance but still could find plenty of open campgrounds for the one to five night stays while on the road. For us, it was...

    Towing a Motorhome

    Sorry for you trouble. As others have said, "Do it right." Let Ford tow the unit and take your truck and drive home. Okay - so you know you have to pay for hotel on the way home - salvage the rest of your trip by taking your time. Please don't focus on the trouble - as it happens to all of us...

    Do you keep water/chemical in your black tank in between trips?

    You are correct - the black and gray tanks are holding tanks, not septic tanks. There should be no "digestion" occurring. Chemicals sold for RV black tanks are designed to kill any bacteria to help reduce the offensive odors that are created by the bacterial breakdown process.

    Splendide washer in rear compartment

    I think it's a story about how OP got a washer installed and then hooked up the water. I couldn't read it through, either. I'd bet two pictures might have summed it up...

    Calling All Plumbers - HELP

    Get rid of the steel elbow - it's not stainless steel as one person thought. It will rust and fail.

    Rv sinks not draining

    I had frogs living in my gray tank vent pipe at one time. BTW, you may have to scrape old Dicor (self-leveling sealant around the vent caps/screws available at any RV store and sometimes ACE) off so that you can remove the cap - be gentle to your roof, be patient and it will remove enough so...

    Good cheap trailer tires?

    Please read the other recently posted thread where an owner has had three blowouts and is asking why... Date code on the tire, accurate loaded weight, proper PSI and regular inspections. A tire is the last place I'd want to save quality -> which often translates to "cheap." If anything, go UP...

    Travel Trailer Tires

    What was the date code on the failed tires? Tires are pretty reliable for up to five years - then every manufacturer says they have to be well inspected. Old tires are often sold at "discount" stored - check the dates printed on the side. Others have suggested moving up to the next higher load...

    Rv sinks not draining

    Although drain blasters are very hand tools to have, please be wary of pressurized solutions in RV plumbing - sadly, many DIY owners have found that some joints are NOT solvent welded and have only been slipped together, perhaps just before the factory lunch horn signaled it was break time...

    Chassis Ground Corrosion

    The basis of a good electrical connection is to have a good mechanical connection. That means - surface prep to bare metal, bolting the connector down (if you can't weld it - and NOT using a self-tapping type of screw) and then coating with any of the suggested compounds to prevent air from...

    Rear AC problem

    Yes, the key word is "fully." In 57 years of electronics and electrical work I've seen many, many people that do not press it "fully" to off, they simply push it a little towards off and then try to push it ON. After that fails, my phone would usually ring. I'm glad all your clients know how to...

    recharging house battery

    I'd avoid using hundreds of horsepower to charge a battery - the genny will be your best choice as Mark B stated ^^^

    Trying to find the perfect floorplan...

    I, also, did not read the entire post (my apologies). Give the written parameters I think you can do an exhaustive search of the various manufacturers and exclude many before you even go to see one in person. Best of luck, you'll love getting on the road.

    Rear AC problem

    Many people are surprised by this. But, now you know. A tripped breaker requires more force to be pushed to the fully OFF position. Here's a second independent source that says the same thing... https://harringtonelectricinc.com/troubleshooting-tips/fuses-and-circuit-breakers/
