Expert Answers about Winter Weather Supplies


  • Battery Heater For Travel Trailer Battery in the Winter
  • It depends on the battery size of your Jayco Jay Feather; most trailer batteries are Group 24 or 27 batteries, and assuming that is the case with your Jayco battery the best option is from Kat's Heaters: - Kat's Heaters Thermal Battery Wrap for Series 24, 24F, 27, 27F, 74 Batteries # KH22200 The # KH22200 will simply plug into a standard outlet and keep your battery warm so they stay maintained in the winter.

  • Will Fantastic Vent Cover Hold Up Over Winter
  • In general the vent covers for the roof vents like part # FV802250 hold up just fine but after several years of sun and weather exposure they will need to be replaced. These covers are designed to resist this about as much as plastic can, but eventually they all need to be replaced.

  • Trailer Cover for Cold and Snowy Climate
  • The Adco SFS AquaShed Cover # 290-52244 is for more moderate climates, and though it would likely hold up in the short term I recommend the Camco UltraGuard # CAM45743 for a winter climate that will see snow.

  • Should I Use NOCO Boost Max Jump Starter for Backup Battery Supply for Jeep
  • The NOCO Boost Max Jump Starter # 329-GB500 is an excellent option for a battery supply to carry in your 2021 Jeep Wrangler. This supply can be used not only for jump-starting your (or a friend's) Jeep and it even has USB ports so you can charge your phone and an LED work light. This will be easy to store in your Jeep as well since it's only 12-1/4" long x 8-3/16" wide x 6-3/8" deep. I'm attaching a review video for you to check out.

  • Tire Chains For 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500 & 245/75-17 Tires
  • Per the online version of the owner's manual of your 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500, tire chains should only be installed on the rear tires of your truck. For chains, the best option, so long as you have 245/75-17 size tires, are from Konig: - Konig Tire Chains # TH01594267 There a few reasons why the # TH01594267 are the best chains, starting with how easy they are to install, which is important because the less time you have to spend out in the cold winter weather (and potentially on the...

  • Can the Torklift PowerArmor Solar Locking Battery Box Withstand Cold Winter Weather
  • My contact at Torklift confirmed with me that the Torklift PowerArmor Solar Locking battery Box, # TLA7708RS, has a sturdy aluminum construction, but is not insulated for protection from cold weather. The battery box needs to be vented to allow the exchange of gasses that are produced by the batteries. The uninsulated design allows for these harmful gasses to be passed and vented to the outside so not to build up within the battery box. The solar panel will wok as long as the panel receives...

  • Recommended Running Boards for 2016 Ram 1500 Crew Cab
  • The Bestop PowerBoard NX Motorized Running Boards # B7563815 which fit the 2016 Ram 1500 Crew cab without factory Air Suspension system, do have exposed linkage parts as well as motors and wiring. In a severe Northeast winter these could develop a build up of ice that might potentially interfere with their operation. Since this kit does not fit with the factory air suspension anyway you can instead use a fixed step. My recommendations are the Westin 4-inch black nerf bars # 21-3565 or...

  • Lippert Electric Trailer Jack Freezing in Cold Weather
  • I spoke to my contact at Lippert Components (LCI) and they informed me that the jack will perform best in cold weather when it is properly lubed and cleaned. To clean the jack I recommend using a brake parts cleaner and spraying down both the drop leg and gears within the head of the unit. Once these two components have been cleaned you will need to acquire some LubriMatic White Lithium grease in 14 oz. Cartiridges # L11354 and apply that to the gears on the trailer jack. Once you grease...

  • Fit of K Source Universal Clip-On Towing Mirror # KS3891 on 2008 Toyota Tacoma
  • The K Source Universal Clip-On mirror you mentioned, part # KS3891 will work just fine on your 2008 Tacoma. The mirror will clip to your mirror housing, and the ratcheting straps would secure it in place. The largest, most stable universal-fit mirror we offer is the CIPA Deluxe Door Mount Mirror, part # 11650. Both mirrors are highly rated by our customers, either option would work well for you. Since you will primarily be using the mirror in winter weather, I would lean toward the CIPA...

  • Recommended Cover for Top of Airstream Travel Trailer
  • All of our RV covers are designed to cover the entire travel trailer so the best I could offer is something of a tarp like the Erickson Truck/Trailer Tarp # EM57051 which measures 12' x 24'. We have a variety of sizes though so if this doesn't work let me know the size of your Airstream. These have an industrial-grade design so they aren't custom fit or anything so you'll need to get creative with how to secure it. I think the best scenario would be to store your trailer in a covered area...

  • Will the WeatherTech Storage Box # WT43SV Fit a Quad Cab 2021 RAM 1500?

  • How to Get the Front Seal of Access Tonneau Roll-Up to Stay on the Spray-On Bedliner
  • I contacted Access and they said that the best way to get the front seal to stick is to prepare the area with a green scratch pad, blow it off (if you have an air-compressor that would work best since it uses more pressure), and then wipe the area down with the supplied alcohol wipe. Another thing to note is that the ideal temperature to do this at would be 60 degrees so if you are in an area that is colder during the winter, you might want to pull your 2011 GMC Sierra into a garage to...
