RE: Fun in the snow...

I just upgraded. I replaced my 2016 Polaris Ranger XP 900 to a Polaris Ranger XP 1000 Northstar Ultimate. It costs as much as a new car. Due to the way I use it at home, I wanted a machine with more amenities, namely A/C. It also has a cabin air filter for the fresh air intake for the HVAC as well as an interior cabin air filter. I won't have to sweat and eat dust when I'm out mowing my 5 acres worth of field grass multiple times in the 90 degree heat of the summer.

RE: Upper level travel trailers I'm forgetting??

Nash, Arctic Fox (From Northwood Manufacturing) and Outdoors RV. The nice thing about these is they all build their own frames instead of outsourcing the frame manufacturing to Lippert (LCI). Since 2003 I've owned quite a few RVs from the above companies. I've owned two Arctic Fox Truck camper, a Desert Fox Toy Hauler, a Nash 22h and 17K and an Outdoors RV (ORV) 24RLS. I've also participated in multiple discussion groups for all the above brands since 2003 and have never heard of frame defects, cracks, breaks, failures like you hear about with LCI frames.

RE: Tow Vehicle w/ Best Back Seat for Passengers - Ram Mega Cab?

Aside from losing bed space you also lose payload. Consider that. Please explain. Heavier cab reduces the payload.

RE: Need RAM 5500 flat bed height

It depends on what brand of flatbed you have. There is no end-all be-all height.

RE: Inverter Output Power Question

Thanks for the quick reply. So if I understand correctly... Each outlet is not relegated to 1/3 of the total power output? Is that correct? I would need to have that available 2000w to only one outlet, to run a microwave. Thanks, Ken Correct. You can run a microwave. I do. My inverter is wired so it can power all circuits in my electrical panel. Here's my installation video

RE: Inverter draw from battery for residential fridge

I did go buy a group 27 instead of the group 24 but now I am thinking I should have gotten the 6 volts or a second 12 volt but I am not sure another 12 volt will fit in the space. One group 27 battery is not nearly enough capacity to run the fridge for more than a few hours.

RE: Inverter draw from battery for residential fridge

I am just curious since we are on the subject , Two inverters , hooked up the same , one is 1,000 watts , the other is 2,000 watts , both on idle , nothing plugged in . Is the 2,000 watt machine drawing twice as much current as the 1,000 watt one ? Every inverter will have a different no load draw. Looks at the specs of the two inverters in question so see what their no load draw is.

RE: Inverter draw from battery for residential fridge

The amp draw from the batteries via the inverter is dependent on what the AC amp draw of the fridge is. Look at the specs of the fridge to get the amp draw.

RE: Are rooftop AC units standardized for mounting?

Standard sized for a 14"x14" roof vent opening. Easy to install too. Here's how I installed one

RE: water pump

Turn it on and listen. Use your ears to follow the sound to find it.

RE: Side by side towing

Get a toy hauler, or a truck, truck camper and cargo trailer. That's how I travel (truck camper and cargo trailer).

RE: Onan Generator Oil Filter Crossthreaded

I've never seen physical damage covered by a warranty. The shop that last changed your oil/oil filter should pay for the repair though since they are the guilty party that damaged the threads.

RE: Shocks

As far as I know, Northwood and ORV (Outdoors RV) install shocks on all of their trailers. Never had shocks on a trailer and don't feel bumps on the trailer. The only exception was a utility trailer riding empty but once you put some stuff on it, it settled right down. Torsion axle utility and Cargo trailers ride much smoother empty compared to leaf spring trailers. I bought for a song back in 2018 when Home Depot surplussed it. I use it weekly now.

RE: Ordering a Chev 3500 (Oct 2023)

... If you look at used RV ads, it seems most people put 4-5K per year on them. At that rate, it's 20 years to even put 100K on them.... YEP! At the rate I drive my 14 year old truck, it might take 20 years to hit 100k miles. It has just over 79k miles this summer. I may have only put about 3000 miles in it this summer since I didn't go anywhere from May through the end of September after breaking my wrist in May.

RE: Ordering a Chev 3500 (Oct 2023)

Good choice getting the Duramax since you will be towing too. I still have the truck in my signature. I bought it new and it currently only has a tad over 79k miles on it. I tow when hauling my camper too and can't image doing it with a gasser. Even my old school, lower HP Duramax makes driving effortless.

RE: Ordering a Chev 3500 (Oct 2023)

Which engine? Which cab config? (Double cab or crew cab) Which trim level? Did you order a Dually? I hope so. They are far better for truck camper hauling duties for big, heavy truck campers. I bought a 3500HD Dually with Duramax in 2009. I hauled an AF 811 for 10+ years. I now have an AF 992 on the same truck. The truck only has a tad over 79k miles on it because I don't daily drive it. It hibernates in the winter. In fact just yesterday I put to bed for the winter.
