RE: Buying travel trailer by phone w/o visiting dealership?

I bought my current fiver new from a dealer over the internet. I was about 300 miles away. It was the exact model and had the options I wanted. Made the deal over the computer, went and did a PDI, paid for it and took it home. Whole deal was over in 2-3 hours. 100% satisfied and I saved thousands over the local stealers. B.O.

RE: Stabil or Seafoam for long term gas can storage?

Non-oxy fuel and I use nothing in it while I store my lawn equipment over the Winter months. Never a problem. B.O.

RE: Bathroom vent cover repair

i always use a vent cover over my roof vents. An insurance adjuster I talked to referred to them as a "hail guard". Makes sense to me. B.O.

RE: 22" to 24" portable gas griddle

I have the small Blackstone. Had to try it due to all the hype. I like my cast iron frying pan better. Maybe one of the bigger models with two or more burners is better. B.O.

RE: Chevy's I4 2.7 turbo engine

V-8 is just loafing along while the nervous little pumped up 4 cyl is screaming its' guts out. Which one is going to last longer? I know what I would buy. B.O.

RE: ? Becoming a KOA Work Kamper for $

Add up the hours worked X even minimum wage. There is no way you can come out as a workamper vs a minimum wage job working anywhere else and just paying for you site out of your earnings. No cleaning toilets, nobody knocking on your door after your work hours, no unreasonable management, no extra hours without pay. B.O.

RE: Large dog

German Shepards are usually on the list of dog breeds banned from many RV parks. Food for thought. I have seen them in RV parks from time to time but many parks won't let them in. I wouldn't travel with one. They're big dogs that need a lot of room and exercise. B.O.

RE: Registering 1-ton Truck in KS

Every State is different. In MN my 2500 Ram was based on the sale price/value. License was just under $500.00 the first year. Moved up to a Chev 3500 and the p;ates are based in the weight and cost under $200.00. Check with your DMV. B.O.

RE: Places to stay for the night around Chambersburg PA

Just carry a few jugs of water to flush the toilet and wash with and stay in the trailer wherever you can. one or two days and you'll be far enough south to not have to worry about it. B.O.

RE: Signing a power of attorney for bank when selling your RV

What are you doing on an RV forum asking about this? Ask your lawyer. I agree. Why are people so afraid to consult an attorney> Probably cost under a hundred bucks and you'll know everything you need vs getting bad info from all the "internet lawyers" you find here. B.O.

RE: Help and Advice on a badly placed 5th wheel

two floor jacks, the kind with wheels on them, on plywood sheets. Transfer the weight to them and slowly pull it backwards. B.O.

RE: Change dining booth to table and chairs

Took my dinette out on a TT I had. Left the table that had a post going to the floor. Used a couple nice wooden folding chairs I got a Wally World. Very happy the way it came out. B.O.

RE: Selling my RV advice

I've always had good luck selling things on Craigs EXCEPT RVs. I tried to sell 3 different ones with no luck. Priced very right, very clean, perfect condition, lots of pictures all the right stuff. No sale. Just depends on the market you are in. Small TT that can be pulled behind a 1/2 ton maybe, but anything larger means no sale here. If your market is like ours, I'd go there. B.O.

RE: Smoke Detectors

I do have an alarm system with glass breakage, motion, temperature, water and entry sensors along with some cameras that activate with motion. Besides being monitored by the alarm company, I get phone notifications as well. Why not get smokes and CO's that are tied into your alarm and monitoring? All security companies can get battery operated - wireless smoke and CO detectors that can be put on a system, even if it's currently hard wired. I plan on doing that in a couple of years. I replaced all of my smoke/CO detectors last Spring and installed the alarm system this past Summer. I want to get a couple of years use out of them at least. I hate feeling like I threw my money away. Put those new ones in your RV then put new ones in your house that are connected to your security system.

RE: Short queen mattress at CW

Ok, took your guys advise and ordered a Zinus 10” memory foam mattress from Amazon and sheets to go with. Be here Wednesday in time for my trip this weekend. Went to CW and spent $65 of my $100 dollar gift card on stuff. Just plain stuff. Didn’t really need anything major. Hope the mattress is as good as the reviews say. Thanks for the help. I have a Zinus 12" thick king bed in my RV. Have a hard time getting my wife to want to move back into our house after sleeping on it. You won't be sorry. B.O.

RE: Campground Theft

In around 40 years of RVing last year I lost my first thing to theft. My former next door neighbor at my very nice and well managed storage lot, must have liked one of my $3.00 plastic wheel chocks and took it with him when he moved out. B.O.

RE: Questions about pulling a fifth-wheel with a half ton TV

I would not want any truck/fiver combo that gets within 80% of the trucks GVWR. Only because you may end up hitting the bump stops on a regular basis and that doesn't make for a very nice ride and can be really hard on the hardware. I would love to know the person that started the 80% rule! I carried a 32’ 12,500# 5er with our 2001 Ram 2500, I was 1,700# OVER GVWR and just under rear GAWR, don’t ever recall hitting the bump stops, heck hardly got to the overload springs! I agree. The 80% thing is a total myth. I don't believe it for a minute. If that was the case then the engineers that designed the trucks would just say "This truck was designed to pull 20,000# but don't pull more than 16,000# with it." Total nonsense. B.O.

RE: RGV ten year trend

The RGV just doesn’t get it. Retirees have traveled the world for their jobs and during their vacations. They EXPECT some style and class for their hard earned retirement dollars. Destination areas are fun areas. They have no desire to live in a compound setting, surrounded by barbed wire, in a location where English is a second language, yet Medicare is available. If you need to learn a language, go somewhere exotic and travel adventurously. If you’re the type that never left the farm, then I’m guessing the RGV would seem exotic at an affordable price. Maybe that is the demographic for the area, and should be courted. We were there for a month a couple of Winters ago. Felt safe in our park but not always everywhere else. Did the So. Padre thing for a day. It might be fun for college kids, did nothing for us. People in our park raved about the cheap breakfast they could get somewhere. Aren't the people that own the restaurants there entitled to a decent profit. Found a place to get a haircut. $6.00 and almost nobody could speak English. I'm not going back. It was warm and it was cheap. It was also dirty, boring and not always safe.
