  • Like @Tabaz I can't believe how efficient my T@B is on propane.  I live in mine full time and use my stove constantly and daily for cooking and for coffee, tea and heating water for dishes. After my first three months I was panicked I was going to …
  • The good news is the water pump filter is very easy to remove, even if a bit awkward.  I'm glad I had put a bowl under it to catch any water as is slipped out of my hands at first!  The filter was (surprisingly!) clear and clean.  It was also e…
  • Sad to report that 1/2" ID is too big.  Well, it does work, but fits very loosely and requires a clamp to keep it in place and keep water from just spilling out.  If I had to do it again, I'd get the next smaller size ID so that it wedges in place w…
  • Talk about exceeding expectations!  I am very happy to report that little transfer pump from Harbor Freight is amazing! I was surprised at how small and lightweight it was.  It even came with an intake hose, although I did have to purchase an ad…
  • I also think T@Bs are so versatile that people don't realise that we use them for so many things other than going on holiday (vacation). Like several others, I live and work in my T@B (and I'm not retired!) and hey... I'd love a microwave to heat …
  • @Tabaz that's a great idea.  I figured with all of us that have done this over the years that if it was a problem, someone would have said!  But I actually love the little magnetic idea for extra security.
  • You know, I hate to be the person that thinks this but... The replacement after-market hinges are so perfect and so inexpensive, I had to wonder why nuCamp doesn't use them.  The cabinets open easily, and no more creeeeeakk/squeak noise from the…
  • Just chiming in to say that I broke the strut on one of my upper cabinets (2018 T@B 320 S), and spent the better part of the last three weeks swearing at it and wondering if I should call Elsie for a replacement.  I don't blame nuCamp, I probably op…
  • Thanks, @SAM! I saw that too, and I'm going to try the disconnection of fresh water and running the pump tomorrow if I can get back to the T@B during daylight, thanks for the sense-check in thinking I should try it, too.  Meanwhile, I was checking…
  • Just found this (not for a T@B but...). Will peek around and see if I can find the check valve for the water pump.  http://www.forestriverforums.com/forums/f217/fresh-water-tank-filling-itself-when-connected-to-city-water-help-104655.html
  • @SAM yep, it's most definitely full.  It just hit 100% and I'm afraid what might happen (where the water might go!) if it's full and has nowhere else to go...  I'm very naughtily draining it onto the ground now.  It is just fresh water after all, bu…
  • Wow!  What I wouldn't give for at least one of those!  Never thought to ask a local shop to make them for me.  Absolutely amazing! Thanks so much for sharing. *jealous!*
  • Well, Horrible Freight, er... Harbor Freight to the rescue again I think!  Thanks for the transfer pump idea @atlasb.  I found a 12v Transfer pump for $39.95 at Harbor Freight I think I'll purchase!  Although drill pumps look great, I'd have to get …
  • I have what was likely one of the first 2018 T@Bs with roof mounted solar (my build date had been pushed back to coordinate with the date this was to go "live") so I can tell you a bit about it. There definitely is no inverter as part of the pac…
  • @SAM good eyes!  There is actually a bit of a cliff drop off there, but unfortunately I can't put anything down there.  Not only because it's off the land I can use, but also the pump company will need to pump out the tank and they won't be able to …
  • I suppose I should mention that I'm lucky enough to have a Camping World nearby, and they were my first stop.  But they only had very traditional looking faucets and none that would fit the T@B (and they were all really expensive, yet terribly outda…
  • I have State Farm for my car (I have everything registered out of Pennsylvania) and when I asked if they'd cover my T@B, they said they didn't provide separate coverage in Pennsylvania, that it's lumped in with my car insurance and there's nothing e…
  • Just to resurrect this thread in case it shows up in anyone's search and so they know the outcome after a few months of trial! Really, really happy with Happy Campers tank treatment (no pun intended!). I tend to put a partial scoop of the powder…
  • @gbhaney I purchased mine back in July when they had a special sale that came with two key fobs.  Otherwise, it's my understanding that each lock only comes with one remote key fob.  Although you can buy extras (I think the normal price is $39 each,…
  • Here's an interesting video that shows what it looks like underneath when latching/unlatching. I also have trouble with mine from time to time - mostly I grab the handles of the T@B and shove back and forth and try, try again. I get it to work, but…
  • If you take the lock apart, you can cut the wires to the sound box.  I remember seeing a mention to that mod when I bought mine (v3 version).  I ended up not doing it at the time as I was short on time.  Now, I'm pretty glad I didn't. The first few…
  • mrlynch1953 said: Could you please tell me if this is the V3 unit?  Without the separate remotes?  The V4 is over $200 and this one is about $50 but I know Verna said the V4 fit perfectly in our TAB door lock space.  I want to make sure that th…
  • IrishCamper74 said: Very nice! What is written around your celtic knot?  Hi @IrishCamper74 It's the logo of our group in Ireland for a game we play called Ingress - it's sort of like a cross between geocaching and capture the flag and i…
  • Haloo said: I'm going to do the install myself. My dealer is reluctant to do it. Where did your dealer vent the Airhead to the outside?  Did they have to cut a new hole? @Haloo - we routed the airhead vent to the black tank vent, which …
  • The fan is a small fan - similar to what's in a desktop computer.  The draw is only .1A, so it's not a noticeable draw at all, really.  I have mine wired directly to the battery.  My parents live on their boat and they've got a small vent cap that h…
  • Hi @Haloo, Yep, I went with the Airhead over their competitors for a number of reasons.  My situation may vary from yours, but maybe this will help: (1) The size.  Airhead makes a "marine size" which is slightly smaller and can be installed flu…
  • @Michigan_Mike what a disaster! lol, don't worry, I thought it was a great idea, too.  I ended up blocking the burners with baking soda and finally had to take it apart with a screwdriver and liberally use vinegar to clear out the baking soda paste …
  • I installed the model vi3 back in July.  The model vi3 is considerably cheaper, works remotely, and still comes with the same fob.  The only difference is that the vi3 has a separate numerical keypad, which I didn't bother to install.  Since it came…
  • Yes, I think the main thing to remember is that none of the 110v (regular home-style plug) outlets will work unless you are plugged in. The a/c in a T@B plugs into a 110v outlet. Only the 12v (cigarette lighter) type outlets will work while you are…
  • Hmm.. that's an interesting thought, @SAM!  Back home we would use bicarb and vinegar often as we don't tend to use many chemical cleaners.  Someone already suggested it to me to try to clean off some weird discolouration on my propane burner, and I…
