RE: Closet on slide, condensation inside corners, when cold out

That is typically a sign of little to no insulation in that area. Warm moist inside air meeting a cold surface causes condensation. The pool noodle idea may work if it can cover the corners enough to make up for the insulation issue. Otherwise keeping the doors to those areas open to circulate air flow should help.

RE: temporary storage

Many RV parks have storage areas with no hookups at much less price than the regular sites. Check nearby parks.

RE: Denali Park Road Pt. 2

Googled it and Eielson visitor center is at MM 66. So not reachable if road is out. That will really be huge for the lodges at the end of the park road as they only have 3 months to make their yearly income.

RE: Denali Park Road Pt. 2

I remember your earlier post. Was the problem area before or after the Eielson visitor center?

RE: Welding outlet with 50 amp rv outlet

BB thanks for the suggestion, your right I could just do it that way and then all would be kosher. Actually you can forget fabbing an adapter. Someone has already done it for you. Try this. 14-50P to 6-50R

RE: Fireplace in TV, Do they work?

We have one in ours (actually I added it as it did not come with one) and it does put out a fair amount of heat. I think ours is 1200 watt. DW likes to back up to it on cool mornings.

RE: Welding outlet with 50 amp rv outlet

To meet code you could change the outlet to a 4 wire outlet with neutral for the RV. Then make yourself a short custom dogbone 4 wire to 3 wire adapter for when you want to use the welder. That ensures you could never use both at the same time and the adapter would really be no big deal. Just leave it attached to the welder. Unplug one and plug in the other.

RE: Who is responsible for discounts?

As long as available discounts are clearly posted on the park web site and at the check in counter, I think it is the customer responsibility to ask for the discount. Some discounts, especially senior, can be very touchy subjects as there are some who are easily offended if someone suggest they may be a senior, even though that person may be well past the effective age, and look it. And no doubt some anti military person may be offended if you ask that question. I was first given a senior discount as I was still approaching 50 by a teeny bopper server at a Dennys restaurant. My hair was already turning grey by that time. She seem so pleased that she had given us that. I was surprised but more than happy to accept the discount. Some would have been livid.

RE: Moving from 30 Amp to 50 amp in my new TT

....... I better carry and adapter, 50 down to 30 in case they do not have 50 amp shore power. The draw back, if there is one, to this new system could be that I will be limited to the trailer spaces without a 50 amp plug. I'm new to this power. I have a 50 amp trailer and have stayed in RV parks on 50 amp service, on 30 service amp, and on 20 amp service. And while in storage it stays plugged in to 15 amp service to keep the battery charged. Get the correct adapters and you are good.

RE: School me on OTA for Dish

Are you within 30-40 miles of the transmission towers? If so get a portable OTA antenna and connect direct to your TV. We have Dish and when they fight with one of the networks I just connect a portable indoor antenna bought at Walmart for $50 or do.

RE: problem with electric water heater

Heating elements are normally either good or they are bad. Can’t think of a way one could partially fail. They are basically a specialized resistor. If you don’t have a valve problem allowing mixing of hot and cold, then I would question the thermostat/hi temp cutout.

RE: Looking For a Second 5th Wheel

You will find praise, and complaints, for all of them . Whichever one you, or more importantly the DW, likes best.

RE: The Cummins soon to take on the Ike

^^^^ For us RVers it would be nice to see a 500 mile fuel economy loop conducted with all three trucks towing identical fifth wheel RVs one behind the other. Definitely true. Much more meaningful to RVers than who can beat the other up a mountain by a few seconds.

RE: can someone please explain this for me?

Here is the Ford fleet tow information. Scroll down to page 19 for 5th wheel towing and the chart shows 12,500* for F250/350 CC 4x4. But note the asterisk, and the fine print that derated the F250 4x4. "and 10,400 pounds for F-250 SRW 4x4 Crew Cab." Ford fleet 2003 towing In 2005 they bumped the ratings by nearly 3,000 lbs and eliminated the asterisk for the F250. Don't know what change they made in the 2005 trucks to boost the ratings.

RE: Used 2011 F350 6.7. Do I need to purchase warranty?

Those are ESPs (extended service plans), not warranties. Repairs will have deductibles. And if you do buy one, buy one from Ford. Although Easy Care is also good. Be very careful of 3rd party plans. BUT. They are expensive, and may not be available for more than 125,000 or so miles. And I think there is a model year limit on them. Shop internet prices. All Ford dealers sell the same Ford plans, but some discount them much more than others. The early 6.7 had some fuel pump issues. Otherwise, they have proven highly reliable. Check the history of that truck before you buy to see what has already been done.

RE: can someone please explain this for me?

That is why I traded my 2004 F250 after finding out the 10,600 lb 5th wheel limit. I didn't buy a 5er until 2007. If I remember correctly they boosted that 5th wheel rating in 2005 to a much higher number. But I bought a 2007 F350 to make sure the 5th wheel rating was high enough for me.

RE: Chucking

Basically it is a forward-backward push-pull feeling going down a less than smooth roadway. I have little to none on most highways. But do have it on some, most often those are concrete rather than asphalt highways.

RE: Two Questions in Colorado

Haven’t been on that road. But those gravel roads are often full of rough washboard sections. And looking at google maps street view, it looks like that road does have that kind of road, although street view doesn’t necessarily represent current conditions. You would probably be creeping along, worrying about shaking something loose, and take about as much time as the long way. Use google maps street view, zoom in, and look at various sections, particularly in the area of the switchbacks. Local residents or rangers could probably give a better answer.

RE: Insurance Denying Claims

A crack in a sidewall not associated with an accident or collision of some type is something an insurance company is not likely to cover. They would probably classify that as a defective product to be addressed by the manufacturer if still under warranty, or completely on you if not. That and the fact that some insurance companies are far more difficult to address problems than others makes it even harder for some.

RE: Disney world in July

Yes, Fort Wilderness is worth it. Having said that, the "free meal plan" which is sometimes included with staying in other on-site Disney hotels can save a lot of money. .............. If you ever choose to stay at a Disney resort hotel, definitely try to take advantage of the free dining plan only offered a few times a year for a few weeks each. We have taken advantage of it twice. Both times we arrived on the last of the free plan. But since we did arrive while it was available, it was valid for our full stay past that date. Particularly money saving if you have kids as everyone in your party eats free, within the limits of the plan. And eating in Disney food establishments is not cheap. Wise to use a travel agent knowledgeable on Disneyworld in this case as reservations must be made in advance, sometimes far in advance. A good agent will generally know approximately when the free plan will be offered and can begin your reservation process. Then maybe adjust dates after the free plan dates are announced.
