    With any of my trailers, I compare the lug wrench of my toe vehicle with the lugnuts of my trailer. If they are not compatible, I replace the lug nuts with the proper size and thread from an auto parts store. After that, I am confident that I can change a tire with the equipment in the toe vehicle. I don't have to cary more c**p in the trailer. Also, check the lug nuts on the spare. They were different on my 320s.

      I’m in Austin, Texas. I’m sure this would fit any Ridgeline. I could ship it to you if you wanted to pay for that. Not sure what it would cost but I’d be happy to research that! Let me know what you think and thanks.

    Anybody out there with a Collie or larger dog in a CS-320? My husband and I are really interested in the smaller CS-320 over the CS-400. With two adults on the shorter and average size height and a Collie, do you feel the CS-320 would be fine?

    Bill, Today is Jan. 27, 2023. I just found your post and pictures showing your extended frame to accommodate your motorcycle. I would love to do this with my TAB 400! Do you have a video or instructions on how you did this mod? I have a 70lb ebike. I bought a QuickR rack and a front hitch receiver for my '03 Yukon Denali. But, your idea is so much better!!  I'd appreciate any help you can give me. Since this is such an old post, I'm leaving my email address. [email protected]  Thank you!! Gail Gebhard

    Thank you Tom for this very useful real world data.    It tells me to expect a 50% range reduction when towing my [email protected] with an EV.  The EV should have good towing dynamics due to heavy battery weight, avoiding the "Tail wagging the dog" towing scenario.  The only issue is a convenience factor considering charge time, overall EV range, and charge station infrastructure.   The future outlook is for continuous improvement in this option.

    Towed my new 2023 Tab S 1400 miles to Fla from NYS with my rear drive VW ID4 recently. 260 miles degraded to 130-140 miles at 100% charge. Took a little longer to get to Fla but pulled my 2200 pound Tab with 4700 pound ID4 very well.

    Hi Cathy -
    I'm not sure if I replied to you, so please excuse either the delay or the second response . . . The listing for my 320S BD will expire soon but it is for sale. I plan to revise the listing somewhat as I've added two 100 Ah Battleborn LiFePO4 batteries and some other components so the asking price will increase somewhat. I will not be re-posting it here on the forum however, so if you are interested, PM me.
    Best,
    Charlie

    Hi! I just ran into an problem with corrosion in my system (2019 S320) and was directed to this thread. Did I read correctly that you have an Alde parts catalog for the 2019? I'd be interested, as I apparently have some work ahead of me.

    You're in SW Wisconsin?? I'm just north of Madison, in Waunakee! As far as ordering or getting more help, have you had luck with Jerry's in Madison?

    Thank you!

      Hi Martine, sorry you are discovering corrosion. How bad is it? Yes, we are in Platteville. The Alde parts can be found here. https://www.alde.us/our-products/?categories=heating-systems Keep clicking on load more button until you find convectors and soft parts. I do have the 2019 catalog pdf but that was before Truma, and it just gave part numbers not prices. You may have luck ordering through Truma again. No, Jerry's has been dismal. They never returned calls and wouldn't get prices from NuCamp to order me parts. I have become a DIY guy. I have had good luck ordering Tab parts through Dana at missouriteardroptrailers.com 660-909-3553 PM me for the PDF or other questions if you can't find what you are looking for. I would be happy to talk with you. Tom

    I am having same problem. Wants to start then shuts quits. Control still has the icon as if is on.. I have added glycol, raised and lowered for air pockets, reset, turned off pain power, tried only electricity, only gas, and priority electricity. I have changed the fuse.. does anyone have any more suggestions? It lights for about 2 to 3 min b4 quitting then will relight in awhile.

    In case you didn't get my response.

    Hi Doug, Yes you can splice in the MPPT controller between the SAE port (with solar panel) and the battery. When you say Master Power Switch I assume you mean the battery switch. Typically solar charge controllers are connected between the battery switch and the battery, so charging can happen even with the battery switch off. The rooftop solar is connected this way. It's not a big deal to have the controller on the downstream side of the battery switch. That is, with the battery switch off, the secondary solar panel won't charge the battery. You can confirm this is the configuration by checking the voltage at the SAE port with the battery switch ON and OFF. Connect the wires from the SAE port/solar panel to the PV terminals and the wires going to the battery switch or battery to the BATT terminals. I would double check the polarity of the wires from the solar panel and SAE port as the polarity can get reversed depending on how it's installed. If the wires going to the battery are anything smaller than 10 AWG, you should consider upsizing them sometime to get better/faster charging efficiency.

      Thank you very much for your response. I think I have it wired in. I felt a bit overwhelmed to start with but once I realized the SAE port went to the system junction for the battery Master Switch - it all made sense. The wiring is 10ga so I connected to the PV and BATT correctly and mounted the controller. I will check the SAE port voltage and polarity by cycling the Master ON/OFF switch as you suggested. I just need to enter the Victron SmartSolar device number so I can monitor the Solar Suitcase output. Again, many thanks for your knowledge. Cheers, Doug
