    washer and dryer

    Not sure what you mean? There is no filter that I’m aware of on a splendide washer. (We have had one for 4 years). As for water filters I use as I stated earlier 3 in-line filters. All three in canisters which I prefer as I can see what the filters actually look like and can adjust my...

    Load duel vs. single

    Dual air pressures are for tires that are mated to the same wheel position. They are automatically reduced in carrying capacity by 10%, compared to a single wheel position. Don’t over think a relatively easy application.

    Landmark Condition After 3 Years of Full Timing

    I do have a water conditioner hooked up to my rig virtually 95% of the time. That may make difference in the ability to clean the track. I’m not saying it was it a breeze cleaning with the brushes, but it wasn’t all that bad either. I find cleaning the bottom of the shower is harder then the tracks.

    Another Tire Inflation Posting

    I see potentially a few things, it appears from the pictures there is some cupping on the tread. Also, I have seen some of that edge wear result from incorrect torquing of the wheel bearings. I’m not saying it is a wheel bearing issue, but it’s something to eliminate. When they checked the...

    Landmark Condition After 3 Years of Full Timing

    I agree that the tracks are difficult to clean, but I found that foam paint brushes work well. I cut the tip off one for the bottom and sides, but use one with the sharper tip for the corners. So far they have worked well.

    Chips falling onto bed...

    We have been full timing almost 4 years and @ 30,000 miles - we still get stuff out of our vents. It has slowed down appreciably, but we still get some every time we move.

    Another Tire Inflation Posting

    While yes I did sell tires, that was not my primary purpose in my 35+ yrs in the tire industry. Please tell me how many times you have been in a tire plant or for that matter how many different plants. I have had significant exposure to the construction of a tire, regardless of its purpose. My...

    Another Tire Inflation Posting

    Trailer are NOT designed much different then passenger and or light truck tires. What really sets them apart is the tread depth and the compounds utilized in the tread, along with a more robust bead bundle. Some trailer tires may have a stiffer wedge installed near the bead area that would give...

    Best to weigh your unit as you would normally have packed when you travel. Unless you hit a rally where they can do individual wheel positions (the best you could do) weighing the axles independently at least provides you with what the axle is carrying. Both axles should be relatively close so...

    Main tv in new landmark newport.

    While mine is a 2018 Oshkosh, none of the 3 TV’s were “smart” TV’s. They were all Insignia to start with. Luckily for us, the main TV went out within the first 3-4 months. Heartland gave me a credit and I replaced it with, at that time, the to of the line Samsung. However, I also needed a...

    Dry Camping With A Residential Refrigerator

    4 6v x 235 x 50% = 470 amp hrs. But I have the victron set @ 420 usable for a fudge factor of 50-55% range.

    Looking to purchase.....

    Look at the window and sidewall as your circle indicates its by a window. Not familiar with the unit but does it have a pass through that you can see the floor from underneath? Typically soft spots are an indication of water intrusion. You might be money ahead having a RV inspector take a real...

    Dry Camping With A Residential Refrigerator

    I’ve never come close to running the fridge that long. I’m just going off what the Victron gauge is saying I have left for power. The fridge for the most part pulls between 5-6 ah. I was amazed at the low power it consumes. The most I have run the trailer without hookups is approximately 9 hrs...

    Dry Camping With A Residential Refrigerator

    I’m guessing the savings would be insignificant compared to the loss of the contents. I added 4 6v batteries that according to my Victron monitor gives @ 70 hrs of running my residential fridge.
