RE: Living space

My class C has an 11”x42” counter top right next to the sink & the fridge is directly across the hallway. It is one of the reasons I like the floorplan.

RE: Winterizing Travel Trailer

Always used pink stuff. Never had a problem.

RE: dometic furnace problem

Never had your problem. But you really have to open the LP valve very slowly for a turn or two. Then see if the burners on the stove are very happy. After that I turn on the water heater till it is happy. Then I turn on the furnace followed by the fridge. If you have opened the LP valve too quickly. Turn it off and wait ten minutes and open it very slowly.

RE: Winterizing TT for 1st time and have a ??? about the toilet.

Never did air only to winterize. The toilet has to have some RV antifreeze in the bowl.

Why is this CG important?

RE: Thinking about buying a class c

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. Wall switches for turning lights on & off. 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. 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. 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.

RE: Foolish Things We’ve Done as Kids

How about seeing or hearing (I think Super Man, maybe the Shadow) going through a brick wall and trying to do it. I had to be two or three. Still here…

RE: 32 Foot Class A vs 32 Foot Class C

I had a 36’ gas class A on a Workhorse chassis. Down sized to a 29’ class C on a Ford chassis. Then traded that for a 30.5’ class C on a Chevy 4500 chassis. The Chevy has a smoother ride and handles cross winds better than the Ford. I really like having three doors to get out of the RV. It is so nice to pull up to a gas pump and just open the door and get out. The cab has air bags for crash protection. On my unit the difference between the cab floor & house floor is about one inch. I have outside bays I have not used. Plus inside cabinets I have not used. I found driving a class A south for four hours on a sunny summer day was not fun. Unless you had the front house AC on and those small fans mounted by the windshield running. The chassis AC was not enough to keep you cool.

RE: Breakaway Switch Confusion.

Holy cow! As I remember it the breakaway switch was a simple device that applied battery power to the TT brakes when the plug was pulled. I also remember there was a concern if you pulled the plug by accident the trailer brake coils could cook.

RE: Chassis battery

Sounds like a dead chassis battery to me. Some of them die young.

RE: A Commercial Vacuum Sealer Might Be Just What You Need

Gdetrailer I do not have to put a thing other than a filled bag on my counter top to vacuum seal it. I do not have that much counter top space for another temporary appliance. The hand held pump drops into the drawer of miscellaneous cooking tools. If I have ground beef I put the valve on a cutting board. So when I see the juices coming up to the valve and can stop the process or even suck some of it into the vacuum pump reservoir on the pump. That then needs to be cleaned. But there is no air in the vacuumed bag. I never have to freeze before I vacuum seal anything. But then again I do not freeze baked goods. Most baked goods last a good amount of time in the freezer with a normal Ziploc bag. I know it cost more. But FoodSaver figured out a different process that I really like.

RE: A Commercial Vacuum Sealer Might Be Just What You Need

I think I have to clarify what I use now. The bags I buy zipper seal air tight. The bag has a one way valve on it. I fill the bag with whatever, zipper it closed. Then apply the hand held vacuum pump to the valve. Suck all the air out of the bag and then normally I put the bag in the freezer. If I have opened up and used some of a pound of bacon. I remove the packaging and put what is left into a one gallon bag. Remove the air and put it back into the fridge or freezer. The bacon lasts longer in the fridge with no air around it. I can open the bag. Use some of the bacon and repeat the vacuuming process and put it back into the fridge. It will last well over six month with no freezer burn in the freezer. Another handy use is frozen mix vegetables. I buy sale items. When frozen vegetables are on sale and I have low inventory. I buy and add them to the one gallon bag in my freezer. Take the air out and put them into the freezer. If I want some I just open the bag. Take what I need seal and vacuum the bag again. By the way, you can also do the above with meat, fish or whatever you do not want freezer burn on. I use FreshSaver bags & hand vacuum pump. Both are made by FoodSaver. Available on Amazon. I started using a FoodSaver in the early eighties for freezing food the Scout troop would use on “Winter High Adventure”. It was always a pain to get the air out of the bags of things like Shrimp Dejon (we ate well). That old FoodSaver is still in its original box. I know it costs more. But the convenience of no big thing needed on the counter and the real simple re-sealing of a bag knowing it will last a long time in the freezer is worth it to me.

RE: A Commercial Vacuum Sealer Might Be Just What You Need

I switched to reusable vacuum sealed bags years ago when Ziploc came out with them. Today the hand held vacuum pumps are super-fast and rechargeable. You only need the filled bag & the pump on the counter. I am sure it costs a bit more. But the ease of use is great.

RE: Cleaning a Dutch Oven after use

Using liquid soap on the outside of cast iron when cooking over wood is what our Scout troops have done forever. Makes cleanup real easy.

RE: Walkable TT roof

Around 2004 Arctic Fox & Nash had an advertising picture of a group of people standing on the roof of one of their trailers. I think it was a 22H.

RE: Fish Chowder

Deb, glad you enjoyed the recipe. It sounds like a long process but really it is not I think. I do carry a frozen container in my camper when I want comfort food quick. I find any good bread works fine as a side dish.

RE: Black Water Accident

I had the darling kid from next door think it was funny to open & close the black tank valve. So when I took off the cap…… What a mess. Told papa and got deer in the headlights.

RE: Water heater problem

If the stove lights. I would go right to the burner tube and push something through it till it comes out in front of the gas orifice. The hope is you have pushed through a spider web and the tube is open. A mud dauber nest would be more work to remove. Then try turning it on. Still no flame? Lots of good suggestions have been provided above. I had the spider thing happen overnight once. I now put part of a dog flea collar in the outside access bay of the water heater and have not had a problem with spiders since.

RE: Ac question

OP, I just connected my camper with the heavy camping cables to a 20A outlet so my kids can run the A/C when they get here for the 4th. Been doing that for years. They know just one heavy load at a time. No A/C and microwave at the same time kind of thing. The fact nothing is heating up for you cable wise is great.

RE: Newbie - Class A or Class C

Class C’s on a Chevy chassis do not have passenger seat leg room issues because the dog house is smaller. I agree with Bumpy that the Tiffin brand is more respected. I had a class A. One of the reasons I prefer a class C is when I stop I can open the door and get out. Be that for gas, food or whatever. A second reason is fewer steps to get in & out. As said before, once the slides are in what is not available to you and do you care. While inspecting a possible purchase take your shoes off and get into the shower and pretend to take one. Can you? Is the floor firm? The same is true for use of the toilet. Is there enough kitchen counter space for you to prepare food? A pre-purchase inspection is a very good idea. I drove my current rig 70 miles so my trusted mechanic could have a look see before I bought it. As far as pricing goes I look at for a benchmark.
