  1. My guess would be, you ran water in the bathroom sink and didn’t realize it. That is the only thing I know of that would have caused what you described. We may have done that oneself or twice ourselves… Andrew
  2. Charlie, We have had Tochta Utopia mattresses for about four years now and like them. The wife likes it better than our mattress at home. They are lighter than latex. Andrew
  3. On the trip we are presently on, we have experienced the same problem Margaret mentioned about water dripping from the bottom of the window frames. We were camping in Yosemite NP with nighttime temps at 26 and daytime temps in the low 40s. Humidity was between the low 30s during the day and about 70 overnight. There was about a foot of snow on the ground. The temperature dropped below freezing by 7:00 pm and did not move above freezing until about 10:00 am. Overnight the main roof vent was fully open, windows next to the beds were cracked open and interior humidity was in the low 30s to low 40s. The interior thermostat was set at 60. The interior shell radiated cold all night long. When we woke up, we turned the thermostat to 67. As the interior temperature raised, each of the window began to have moisture drip out from between the hull and the interior compression frame of the window. Note there is very little to no condensation on the windows or window frames themselves. My theory is there is moisture building up between the upper hulls and freezing overnight. When were turn up the temperature in the morning, the ice begins to melt between the hulls and leaks. There is no evidence of water in the lower hull and that makes sense as the upper and lower shells are mostly sealed from one another at the adhesive joint along the belly band. Without removing the window and examining the area in more detail, I don’t have any idea for a fix at this time. I am interested in anyone’s thoughts. Andrew
  4. Fargoman, I have had to replace the bathroom window three times due to fogging. I would be more than happy to walk you through it once you get the replacement or help you install it. Message me your contact information when you are ready. Andrew
  5. Fargoman, Replacing a window is really a very simple process. The only real work is removing the old caulk. I have found using just butyl tape works very well, requires no caulking and is a much cleaner installation. If you are anywhere near San Diego, I would be more than happy to help you with it. Andrew
  6. Dena, We use AT&T on a Netgear Nighthawk as our primary and Visible on our phones as a backup. On our resent three-week trip down the Oregen and Northern California coast, we used AT&T for all but three nights. Two nights the Visible signal was better and one night we didn't have signal on either. I like the AT&T as primary because it is not limited to 5 kbps like the Visible although, 5 kbps really is all we need for our use. Andrew
  7. Whenever our trailer is parked unattended for a period of time, I remove the fuse at the jack to make the trailer harder to steal. I think it is a good theft deterrent. Andrew
  8. Roguebooks, Below is a link to a SOK lithium battery on Amazon. $599 for a 100amp/hour lithium battery is a good deal and it holds more usable power than your two AGMs. If you are willing to charge you battery primarily with solar (as we do), you can get away with not changing out your charge/converter. Also, keep in mind, you will need some sort of shunt-based battery monitor. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjolpKQ_PP5AhVRmWoFHR8DAW4QFnoECBUQAQ&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FSOK-Battery-Applications-Temperature-Disconnected%2Fdp%2FB087BP1Z63&usg=AOvVaw2XghGSZ_1jRj7DIMCNb56m Andrew
  9. You may want to make sure nothing else is drawing off the AC power while you are trying to run your A/C. I make sure the refrigerator is set to propane and the breaker for the charger/converter is off. I think that may resolve your problem if your generator is putting out advertised power. Also, if you have an ECO mode, turn it off. Andrew
  10. Roguebooks, If you would like someone to discuss this further with and/or walk you through the process over the phone, I would be more than happy to help. Message me, with your contact information, if you are interested in discussing. Andrew
  11. John, The panels need to be relatively level to the roof when you are moving. Tilted more than a little would cause the panels to act like a sail and likely be torn off, as you drive. Andrew
  12. Why do you think you need them?
  13. Speaking from experience, they are attached with a paper backed adhesive and then caulked. They come off very easily with a plastic razor blade. They fill up with water because they are mounted on a rounded part of the trailer and do not adhere flat. Water gets in around the caulk and soaks the paper backing. I have replaced ours and adhered them in spots where the trailer is flat. Andrew
