Upgrades and Modifications / Re: Ideas to upgrade mattress on 2011 QS10
« on: January 23, 2019, 01:30:37 AM »
I used to have an RV where the platform was the same size as the mattress. On the old one, it seemed like I was always hitting my leg on it when I walked by. And I bruise easily. So I prefer the plywood to be a little bit smaller than the mattress. On our current set up, our memory foam mattress hangs over the base a little on all sides. I don't notice it at all when sitting on the mattress or sleeping on it. And the sheets stay tucked with no problem.

Equipment / Re: Battery charging in off season.

Id keep it simple and feel like some are overthinking things.
The batteries are wired in parallel but through a switch. If wired in series wed be talking about a 24V system.

Just buy and install a smart trickle charger and if a manual battery Perko type switch just switch to all or both.

A 1 amp trickle charger will overcome any parasitic loads as long as you turn off all accessories and ignition.

Hard wire it to one battery with their plug.

If using a smart isolating relay switch as a combiner then Id just hardwire both batteries to a Y connector plug for the smart charger. It is a $10 accessory. Plug the charger in to the port on the Y.

I buy the battery tender brand products available on amazon.

Hope this helps!

usually I ask myself next questions:

1. what food will we cook to eat
2. where we will sleep - a tent installation
3. what activity we perform after eathing - games/telling stories etc.

We just bought our first trailer.  2 yr old 16TBS in great condition for $18k. Probably around 8k miles on it.  They upgraded the leather-type couch and twin mattresses.

Would appreciate any advice on using and maintaining the trailer. Am going to wash it and put on a nice coat of wax, for starters.
