RE: Need a new vacuum cleaner

Of the two you mentioned I would go with the Bissel. I think they make a good product. I have had the big green machine for rugs for years. If money is not an issue look at Dyson. My DC25 pet vacuum is HEPA and has been very dependable. You could always just look for a model “42” and be done with the search. :)

RE: South Lake Michigan

I stayed at Warren Dunes about five years ago. I really liked it. There were wild turkeys roaming the section I stayed in. Indiana Dunes is going to be more crowded. Leaving Indiana Dunes take I94 west and pick up I80 west. That keeps you out of Chicago. Getting to I80 will give you a feel of the traffic you will be skirting around. I80 west to I29 north is probably the fastest route to the Bad Lands.

RE: Cordless blowers

I have a 20V Black & Decker two speed leaf blower. It is very light weight making it very easy to use. There is enough power to blow twigs & sticks off the walkways & deck. It uses the same battery as my hedge trimmer and pole saw.

RE: Need Help with a route from Yuma AZ to Illinois in mid April

I do not tow a Jeep. I know the car I tow has a sequence of things to do after it is hooked up to the camper. I suspect the same is true for a Jeep. Also, the car cannot be towed faster the 65mph. I do not know if that is true for a Jeep. Driving both home sounds like the best idea for the reasons Janss & Executive stated above.

RE: 6 liter V8 Chevy Vortec question

MDKMDK smiles & miles only till you need normal service or repairs. It is great you love it. All I know is my 2013 4500 chassis with its long wheelbase and a 6.0 engine is a great driving rig that is all stock. Great ride and the best wind handling class C I have had. My first class C was on a F350 chassis V10. I won’t go there for this discussion. I have to listen for downshifts. I can get my size 13 shoes past the dog house with no problem. My only issue is the 4500 chassis is several inches taller. So being an old geezer I have to have to put out a step to comfortably get into the rig.

It would be nice if “2 Beagles” responded.

RE: Spare on Class C

My spare tire is my toad. My camper does not have a spare tire.

RE: Leaving breakers in the camper on while away?

Never thought about turning the breakers off, ever.

RE: Looking for portable electric space heater for rv!

Going back to the OP question. One or two 1500W heater running at 750W will keep most class C RVs warm at say 25 degrees for a night.

RE: Securing black water tank

I suggest calling Arctic Fox and ask them. Not knowing just where you are at. Maybe a trip to them could be arranged to fix it. I know both tanks are in inside insulated containers if that is a correct description.

RE: Requirements for towing and setup of a TT 3500lbs or less

The best touring RV setup I have had was a used 2002 F250 purchased in early 2003 with the infamous 6.0 PSD. It was not a dually. Towing an Arctic Fox 22H using WDH and a Reese friction sway bar. The truck was HEAVY. The TT dry was 5000 lbs. Gross weight was 7500 lbs. I took that setup all over the country, Alaska and Maine. Crosswind had to get up too 30mph before I realized it was really windy. When the Ford engine warranty ran out at 100k I was not going to keep that truck. I moved on to a class A on a W22 chassis. With Koni FSD shocks it handled like a car not a boat. Think about this. Have you ever looked eyeball to eyeball at the driver of a delivery van while sitting in your class A? You looked down at them. Class Cs are on van chassis. The road clearance height of my current rig is 10’6”. There are only two steps to get into it. Well most are. My current rig is on a Chevy 4500 chassis and that first step is more than several inches taller I think. The stock Chevy 4500 is a pleasure to drive. Cross wind gusts are noticeable above 25mph. Big rigs passing, not a problem. Depending on floorplan a 28’ class C can have 100 cubic feet of outside storage in the back. A 28’ class C takes up two diagonal parking spots with room to spare. I have never had to back out of a parking lot when not towing the car. The only thing my current rig lacked was levelers. Just had Big Foot levelers installed this summer just in case I need them. The AWD 2015 Terrain I tow is a great DD. Much better than the CRV I had. So I give up about 3mpg. Big deal, better ride and more space inside. I will never buy a first year vehicle again. That 6.0 PSD only put me a foot once, in Winnipeg. Three injectors and free camping in a Ford dealer’s lot. Should you decide on a truck & trailer go with the Ecoboost.

RE: Yep....Gettin' older

I have learned to take the mask off after I get back into the car. That way I know where they fell.

RE: Requirements for towing and setup of a TT 3500lbs or less

Gjac I don’t know your age or health. I can tell you this. Since 2004 when I bought my first 19’ TT. Not a single item associated with any RV has managed to stay the same weight. With time they all seem to gain weight. Funny how that works. The same is true with steps. The fewer the better now days. Now if you are still using a P30 I know the cost of maintenance of one those chastises. I had one. Nothing is cheap. That was one of the reasons I went to class Cs. First a Ford & now a Chevy. Good mechanics can service them at reasonable prices. Also fewer steps and more doors. I now tow a car. None of the “towing” accessories necessary for hitching up on the road weigh more than a pound each. You know that if you tow with your P30. With age getting off of my knees has become more of a task. I am not up to getting leveling gadgets off of the ground anymore. I like pushing a button to level. I also like the holding tanks sizes I have now. My two TTs had smaller tanks. I do not miss banging a shin bone on a hitch. Nor do I miss grease on my pants. Or mucking around with the weight distribution bars on my second TT on a nice day.

I did Costco and have been happy with them.

RE: RV parked for a lengthy period

On a TT I would cover the tires and call it good. Now if you have power to it I would check the batteries every other month for fluid. What do you mean it has not been winterized for 2020? Was it winterized for 2019 and never used again?

RE: Requirements for towing and setup of a TT 3500lbs or less

If you really want to go to a TT with auto leveling. Look at Outdoors RV. Four season but they are very heavy.

RE: Requirements for towing and setup of a TT 3500lbs or less

Coming from a class A you are asking for a lot more work to set up and tear down. Also rest stops will be very different. Wish you well on your move to a 3k TT.

RE: Purchased my first RV

rollindowntheroad My current sewer hose is a Rhino. It sounds like the 20’ two section one you bought. It fits into the bumper. Mine is “collapsible”. This, new to me feature, means as you put the hose into the bumper you have to collapse the portions that have extended as you put the hose away. The first time I used it I ended up with several feet sticking out that would not go into the bumper it came out of. I have never needed more than 20’ of sewer hose in 15 years.

RE: winterizing question

I agree with BruceMc.

RE: How fuel stabilizers work...or not

Ethanol goes by the common name alcohol. Methanol is not alcohol. One big clue is its name. Also Isopropyl Alcohol is not Ethanol. An interesting video I use non ethanol gas on all small engines. I also run the MH tank down as much as possible and add E0 gas for the winter.
