    Tire age

    5 yrs is the majic number hold your speed down an increase of speed by 10MPH drastically increases tire temperature and try to do your driving in the cool of the morning. Buy an infra red heat gun and check temperatures at a rest area. If you have one tire way hotter than others its more than likely your loading or air pressure. You will be amazed at how much cooler the tires run that are on the shady side of your rv going down the road. Check your wheel hubs same time you are checking tires. My last trip to AZ I had two tires on one axle running super hot and while there in rest area standing there looking at the one tire it just separated and went flat. Someday when I'm not so mad ask me about Good Sams Roadside service, They will never ever in a gazillion years get another nickel from me Oh and a PS those two tires were working on their 6th year with lots of tread and no visible weather checking

    Generac Generator Shuts down

    Supposedly Kirk but my 2000 Hondas each are only rated at 13.2 amps. I did plug my 14A skilsaw in and it promptly dumped the breaker so my 2000s paralled are only good for 26.4

    Generac Generator Shuts down

    J0hn T h0w many amps can that geraccku put out 4K watts ? I know I have 2 - 2k in parrallal Hondas which put out 13.2 Amps each and they really bark starting an AC. and continious running I think they are rated at 3200 watts

    Generac Generator Shuts down

    Put a box fan in there with it so when genny runs so does the fan, See what that does / Check for loose wires that could build up heat / Feel those wires after it shuts down see if you get a hot one / Maybe just maybe the AC is overloading and getting too hot and drawing lots more amps then its supposed to ? Might take a few cold ones to think this over

  8. Sheesh forgive me for not realizing that some of you were raised in a sheltered childhood, What do you think is in the can when you watch the news and watch a fireman starting a backfire in the forest ? It's normally a 50-50 mix gas & diesel I'm almost afraid to tell you that you can take a 5 gal METAL bucket dump fuel into it a gal will burn for almost an hr, just drop a match in....no flareup just burns on top of fuel...A coffee can works if you can find a metal one these days.We did it all the time when we were on a job and couldnt feel our fingers in our gloves It became defrost time

    Interior step lights

    Amazon has some great motion sensing stick on lights about 10" long I think I have one that lights up when we get the the stairs on our 5th and another on the fridge so by the time the one on steps goes out the fridge has a;ready come on..So all is well. easily removed to change batteries held together with strong magnet around $10 as I recall

    Extra Propane Tank Transport Safely

    All sticks n bricks have tank setting out in the weather. Try sticking a thermometer inside that black box on a fairly hot day and check it about 4 hrs later, I think the temp will give you your answer

    reefer on light for 5ver

    The easiest way would be to go strait out the wall by the fridge vent and install another clearance light, But looking at your rig you might need binoculars

    Average age of a trailer

    My dad confirmed that it was not built to put over 4K under the bed! Yeak 4K under the bed might be throwing a little strain on the welds. Cant figure out what would weigh that much unless lead maybe or of course GOLD bars ?
