RE: Grand Canyon RV parks

As beautiful as the canyon is, my opinion 3-4 days is enough. One day checking the east side from the camping and hotel areas. And another on the west side. A couple days for everything else. The overlooks are amazing. But really they are all very similar, but from different perspectives. And I agree. Getting spaces for four trailers in prime tourist season you better do it ASAP.

RE: Tow Haul Mode

I engage tow/haul as soon as I hook up the 5er no matter the distance, speed, or terrain. And I use tow/haul descending some steep winding grades even without the trailer behind. Less need to use the brakes.

RE: Lake Louise trailer park or Icefield parking lot.

Take a slow drive on 1A between Banff and Lake Louise and you might see one of these guys. :B width=550

RE: easy on/off truck caps?

Been over 30 years, but I had a fiberglass cap that two could easily take off and put back on. Held it on using C clamps instead of screws/bolts to make it quick and easy.

RE: Lake Louise trailer park or Icefield parking lot.

Haven’t stayed at any of them, but there are several campgrounds along the Icefields parkway between Banff and Jasper.

RE: Future Used RV Market

Who knows. There is some of that even in “normal” years. But likely more so in the next 2-3 years. Or after the virus is finally corralled.

RE: Blue DEF

No more DEF than I use and no more than it cost, I always buy the blue DEF and usually at Walmart. And don't bother with price shopping. As for truck stop DEF, I have never bought it there although many do. And I have never heard of anyone having a problem with it. But even a busy truck stop, the DEF is never completely fresh. The tanker truck simply dumps the new into what ever old is still in the tank mixing it all together. That may be a lot of new mixed with a little old. Or a little new mixed with a lot of old. The concentration of old gets a little less each time, but never completely becomes new fresh stuff.

Understanding DEF date code. Not obvious. DEF date cide

RE: Burnt wires in power distribution panel

QCMan - thanks for that comment. It had not crossed my mind as a possible cause. Think I will pull and the wires, clean them, and reattach to the block. Might avert a future problem. Not only the neutral wires but all the wiring in your load center, hot, neutral, ground, and also all the wire terminations on the 12 volt fuse panel. Something that should be done on new RVs and periodically on older ones. Many of my wires were not properly tightened when new. A not uncommon problem.

RE: Brake and Running Lights wires suddenly grounded

Being two separate wires showing shorts to ground, I too would guess a crushed or crimped cable. Not likely simple rubbing would simultaneously ground two wires. I would crawl underneath and carefully check every inch of the wiring from hitch end to the termination points and look for anything abnormal along the wiring.

RE: Advice on towing a 5th wheel

The manufacturer specs on our 5th wheel specifies the lengths as being from the center of the king pin to the rearmost part of the trailer. So yes, the overall length of truck and 5er would be several feet shorter than a bumper pull of same length.

RE: Check this if you've bought a used RV recently

Ok people. His LP alarm is not bad. He is saying his smoke detector never had a battery in it. He thought the beep was from the the smoke detector, but without a battery it couldn't beep. Good find, glad you found it before it's too late! He said the LP/propane detector located NEAR THE FLOOR and it was beeping. And it also does not have a battery because it is hard wired. And it beeps when is no longer working or past the end of life date printed on the detector. So it was in fact, bad.

RE: Reservations

I prefer to make reservations at least a day ahead of that travel day. At worse, I will call ahead early the morning of travel. The last thing I want after a long travel day is to find area parks full and then scramble to find a place to stay maybe a lot farther down the road than planned.

RE: Southwind blowing cold air out left side defrost vent

Not familiar with a Bounder, but probably a damper in the duct work not opening/closing properly.

RE: Inquiring minds want to know.-- Strange bracket

I don't know the answer, but it looks like a generic awning probably used on multiple RVs. But if no answer here, try over on the Montana Owners Club forum (MOC). MOC

RE: Thoughts on the Cost of RVing

I have never tried to justify the cost of my RVing. We enjoy it and can afford it, so we do it. At the same time, pre covid, we also enjoyed air travel and destination hotel stays, and some times cabin stays. Especially if the distance to the destination was long. Didn’t try to justify that either. We simply traveled at a level within our budget. Now, with covid, we have avoided the second method. But when covid settles out I will be fine with it again.

RE: winterizing question

What type, brand, and model RV do your have? And a picture of your "antifreeze inlet" would help also to get a more accurate answer. Ours has a winterizing inlet, a couple switches to turn, and uses the on board pump making the winterizing with antifreeze a pretty simple task. But other RVs may be completely different.

RE: Rving coming to an end

Hate to hear that. Best of luck to both of you. Our RVing is slowly coming to an end also. Life has a tendency to unexpectedly get in the way. But we have lots of memories to look back on as I am sure you and your wife do.
