An update on our TV and buzzing noise….
The soft white noise that was in our van has something to do with the rear air conditioning. When the weather is hot, and the rear air is in use, ice or condensation gathers in the rear air unit. When the vehicle is turned off, the fan continues to run in the air unit for a few minutes, to blow off condensation and hold off unwanted culture growths in the unit. This seems to be noticed only because of the wooden wardrobes that filled the back of the van, and is only noticeable when the back door is open at other times.
Since the drive without the trailer plugged in, we have driven with the headlights on, and the running lights are a constant reminder that things are happy with the trailer cable.
A question was made about the trailer being at the upper limits of the capacity of our tow vehicle, and yes it is. We knew this going in with a vehicle with single wheel axel instead of dual wheels, and a gasoline powered engine instead of a diesel engine.
I have called around questioning breaking capacity of our van, and have always been asked “Don’t you have trailer brakes when pulling a trailer of that size?”. I guess that the van brakes won’t last all day all by them selves.
Last week I ordered the best whiz-bang front brake rotors available, the ones with the cooling slots or grooves cut into them, from the Quigley folks. I think that stopping will be the same, but there will be more stops before fade happens again.
Remember, passionate people with a cause, have the energy make changes happen in the world. Some energy with noble intentions was a bit misguided early on with this thread, thank you, to Bob.
We’ve been busy with home remodel stuff with a tight deadline, and I haven’t had much time for computer stuff lately.
