RE: New smoker grill

I have two of them. I am keeping the one that is in the OP’s picture. I really like it for smoking and indirect cooking. I liked it so much I bought one without the trays for the camper. Unfortunately it is cumbersome to take out & put away. Live & learn. I bought 10lb LP tanks thinking lighter to manhandle while camping. One tank last almost a summer at the house. I do not grill every day. They are really well made & grill just fine. But the low temp cooking & smoking are where they shine. Slow cook a steak and then sear it at the end makes for a great steak.

RE: Majestic 28 a running boards

There is a Topic currently below your Topic on this page at the moment that may have your answer. Lots of 28A owners on it. Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

RE: FL state parks open events canceled

Sure would be nice if they knew the parameters of this thing this time around. At 77 I know many good folks at extreme risk, maybe…

Fish Chowder

This is long but worth the time. I recommend the raw sea food mix and frozen shrimp. The final product freezes well for camping. Fish Chowder 1 ½ pounds of catfish or tilapia or cod (no salmon) or 2lb frozen raw seafood mix 1 ½ pounds of shrimp raw, peeled and divined or 1lb frozen cocktail shrimp tail removed 2 cups of red potatoes ,peeled, medium chop 1 cup celery chopped medium fine 1 cup carrots medium fine chopped ½ cup parsley chopped fine 1 large onion medium/ fine chopped 2 cubic inches of salt pork sliced into thin small squares. 4 Tbs butter ½ cup flour 1 cup milk Salt and pepper 2 Tbs olive oil Cut fish and shrimp into about one inch cubes. I have used small raw small shrimp whole. Heat olive oil in a pan and sauté salt pork for a bit and add onions. Add a bit of salt & pepper. Sauté till onions are translucent. Reserve everything from the pan in a bowl. Fill a 6 Quart pot with; potatoes, celery, carrots and parsley. Plus more salt and pepper to taste. Add water to the pot to cover everything. Then add the reserved salt pork and onions. Bring to a boil. Then turn down heat to a simmer and cover the pot. Melt the butter in a medium heat pan and add flour. Mix completely and then turn down the heat and add the milk, stirring to make a rue. When the potatoes are 3/4 cooked, add the rue and stir it in well. Adjust salt and pepper and cover the pot. When the potatoes are almost fork tender, add the fish. Cover the pot and simmer for five minutes. Adjust salt and pepper and add shrimp and simmer covered for five minutes. This makes maybe three quarts of chowder. It freezes well. Great with fresh corn bread as a meal. The more shrimp the better. Tilapia worked well. Catfish chunks are better & cheaper. I substituted two Aldi one lb. bags of their frozen “Fremont seafood mix” that is now in stock and added a pound of frozen cocktail shrimp cut into thirds. All the sea food went in frozen so I had to bring it all back to a boil for two minutes then simmer. This is a Civil War field cook book recipe with shrimp I added. I removed 3 eggs from rue.

RE: Issues with Tow/Haul mode

I wish mine came on at startup.

RE: toad versus no toad

Done it both ways. Prefer a towed to see more.

RE: E450 Insulated RV Windshield Cover

Like ron.dittmer I drape a blanket that is large enough & long enough to hang down behind the seats to seal off the cab from the house. I use entertainment doors to hold the blanket in position over the cab hole. I do have to have an opening of sorts at the bottom of the isle for the dog to go into cab for her entertainment at night or morning. So far, with the slide in & 28F with wind outside at night. Two electric heaters set to 800W each and the furnace set lower than room temp as a backup has worked fine. One heater in the bedroom facing out and one by the kitchen sink, mid living space, facing towards the cab. The dog & I survived very well. The furnace ran several times just before I got up. If I were to do the above on a regular basis I would have covering for the cab windows. I should mention all of the fresh water pipes are inside of the rig and heated by the furnace. The holding tanks are not, yet.

RE: The RV Life

Wish you a bunch of good times down the road. My wife passed from cancer also many years ago. You have my condolences. Solo with a dog is fun.

RE: pp space heater in a rv

Folks, any type of heater used inside an RV that uses inside oxygen is a **** shoot for living to the next day. I have been there and done that and survived with my family thank God. Weather can close up vents with ice or snow while you are sleeping. The only good part is you will never know it happened.

RE: 25’ Class C. Ford vs Chevy opinion

I traded in my non slide class C and it was sold in under 30 days at what I thought it was worth if I were to have sold it. My current class C had a slide that I almost never use because of the floorplan. It is also on a stock 4500 chassis that is great to drive. The Chevy odometer can be changed to show a number of different displays with some buttons to the left of the steering wheel on my unit. As I recall tachometer is one of them. I should also say my first class C was on a Ford chassis. I like the Chevy chassis better.

RE: Dinghy Towing guide

My 2015 Terrain SLE, AWD w/automatic tows just fine. I am averaging 22 to 25 mpg per tank full. My son has the Denali version of the same year and it is decked out with leather and all the spiffy stuff. I think there was a Caddy version also that year. Hope this helps.

RE: engine longevity?

The answer is NO. The Ford & Chevy engines & transmissions go much longer. If it was not that you joined this group in 2012. I would have thought this question was a troll.

RE: Absolute positively the worst road ever

Alcan Hwy from Destruction Bay, YT to Tok, AK 225 Miles of frost heaves and even some gravel. It was so bad I decided going back home to take “The Top of the World Hwy” from Chicken, AK to Dawson City, YT. The American side of that road is two lane gravel. Hewn into the side of cliffs with no guard rails or shoulder. Mesmerizing views but terrorizing when meeting gravel haulers coming down at you at two or three times your speed. There is literally no place to go. You just pull as close to the edge and stop praying they miss you.

RE: THOR Motor Coach

I all ways by used. I had a 2011 28’, Thor made, Chateau for my last class C. It had some electrical issues. But the coach was made to the same standards as my 2002 Arctic Fox and 2003 Damon Challenger near as I could tell inside. In fact my current coach made by Coachmen, a subsidiary of Forest River, (2014 Leprechaun) is made with the same standards inside. Yes, some small things are made on the cheap with this unit also. As you will find in any mid-priced coach. The folks that throw “THOR” out there as junk product is just is not right. They make many, many products. Some are better than others. In some cases much better than second up. In Thor’s case they make so many products you have to hear about the bad ones more than the good ones on the net. Peace…

RE: 2020 Class'C' E-450 Ford V10 lacks power?

Almost funny... “K&N filters still require that spray to capture the dirt more effectively” Followed by “That sensor is extremely sensitive to dirt.” I do not think K&N filters are necessary on a van. Normal common sense says change the filter when needed. The only car I have had a K&N filter on was a 1965 Shelby AC Cobra that really needed to breathe. If you have a Ford. Get the Five Star Tune. It does make a difference on shifting under load. I bought it and liked it.

RE: diesel class c

If you do not like the sound of a V10 in a class C. Get one with a Chevy chassis. Just my two cents….

RE: Loud Water Pump

I also like to hear the water pump run. That burp when there is a slow leak someplace saved a bathroom floor recently. Also turning the pump on after being gone for a while and hearing nothing is a good feeling. Now rattling water pipes just have to be quieted somehow. Been there, done that also.

RE: Move to Motorhome

Things to think about when considering floorplans. Walk into shower. Some showers you have to step up to get into them. Corner shower, some are bigger than others. Big ones are real roomy inside. Counter space by the kitchen sink for food prep. Large outside rear storage. They can be up to 100cu ft. No window over the headboard of the bed. Keeps bedroom more comfortable on hot days or real cool nights. Livable with slide(s) in. A north south bed that is offset to one side. That gives you room to walk & dress on one side. 60x80 real queen bed. Uses standard bed sheets and such. Ford E450 or Chevy 4500 chassis. Having had both I have found the Chevy handles cross winds & passing big rigs better. Just a comment. All class Cs have an overhead above the cab designed to be a bed or audio center. It is a great place for storing things. My current rig has lots of storage behind the large TV in the audio center.

RE: Class C wish list

Things to look for I have found value in while having in a class C …. Walk into shower. Some showers you have to step up to get into them. Corner shower, some are bigger than others. Big ones are real roomy inside. Counter space by the kitchen sink for food prep. Large outside rear storage. They can be up to 100cu ft. No window over the headboard of the bed.

Ford E450 or Chevy 4500 chassis. As a Ford guy, I have found the Chevy better. Hate to admit that. Just a comment. All class Cs have an overhead above the cab designed to be a bed or audio center. It is a great place for storing things. My current rig has lots of storage behind the TV in the overhead area.
