Makes sense clev, my wife prefers a gas too but I have also read against it. We have a member who did a 220v dryer in his DRV so not being a electrician I'm guessing he intercepted the two 110v's to...

Thanks, I was just curious about propane. I wouldn't bother with it either. Our last 5er was a Travel Supreme and had Sears WD just like this DRV. I just keep telling her to let it run, there is no...

Propane dryer?

I have read about a 220v dryer being installed, is a propane dryer out of the question? These 110v dryers just don't cut it.

Bill, it reads zero amps at the surge guard but it reads 124v at the same time. I took the surge guard out of the equation with no change, half the plugs and the one ac do not work. I just got done...

I can hold 90 gallons so I can decide to wait until the next day or cut off in a campground to get some. I've been in way to many tight gas stations with the 5er and just don't like doing that. If...

Clev, that makes sense, thanks for explaining that. I don't use my 35' gooseneck very much so I was wondering about hooking up all the time. It would be nice to do away with the 5th wheel hitch.

I can't help but asking, why a gooseneck? I have a 35' enclosed trailer for hauling stuff around but I think it a PITA hooking it up. Maybe there is a easy way to do it, IDK.

I find the regulator with gauge to be more help because you can adjust it. Lately I don't even bother with one unless the camp ground has really high pressure.
