RE: Most dont sanitize water heater?

It takes lots of vinegar and time to kill whatever it is that lurks in the water heaters. Bleach doesn't do it. There's plenty of articles about it out there in google land. How about a couple of links to those articles? bleach works great. bumpy

RE: Most dont sanitize water heater?

are you sure you aren't remembering that people say they don't run antifreeze into the water heater? just bypass it and let drain. bumpy

RE: My pet peeve on Class B Plus

and all of this B, B+, C- etc makes any difference??????????? bumpyIt does to groups associated to the different classes of RVs. There is no point in having such a group unless there is a clear definition of what RVs are a part of the group. This forum is one example and it is properly named "Camping Van Conversions" that caters to Class B owners, although activity on this forum has almost come to a halt. Another example is the Annual Class B Rally that has to limit attendance to what most RV parks can handle. Small Class C's have to be declined as there are always more true class Bs than can be handled. B-Rally website B-Rally FB Group so " Like the Roadtrek 200 being a C and the Roadtrek 210 being a B, this is confusing and just plain silly." one could be in your "club" and the other couldn't? bumpy

RE: Okay How many RV'ers here use CB-Radio's?

a good way to tell if somebody has/is using a CB in their vehicle. if they complain about cursing and blabber, they haven't used one lately. I can't even remember the last time I heard such on my CB going down I 95. bumpy

RE: The more I learn, the more I realize what I don't know

You do not need a "monster" truck to tow a 5er. Truck tow ratings have increased dramatically in recent years. Many 5ers fall within the ratings of 250/2500 pickups. And ratings for 350/3500 SRW trucks will handle many many more 5ers. A dully is not required by weight until you get into the heaviest 5ers. Wanting a dually vs needing a dully, as many do, is another matter. this is exactly why I recommend figuring out what 5er you want/need then buy the truck to fit. if you don't need a real truck and a Scrawny one will suffice, go for it. if you want a more capable vehicle, then buy it. bumpy

RE: The more I learn, the more I realize what I don't know

Make your life easier. You need a new truck and, unless you have lots of extra money, a FW is the answer. I think the advice is to buy the truck then buy the FW that works with the truck. Now, isn't that simpler? I think it would be better to find the 5er you want, then buy the truck to fit. bumpy

RE: The more I learn, the more I realize what I don't know

to tow any large/decent 5er you need a monster of a truck to pull it, dualies, etc. I would hate to have to drive that truck in some city traffic, parking,etc. and would much prefer a class a towing a small toad. bumpy

RE: Adding privacy curtain

how tight to the walls do you need the curtain to be? if you must snug it up to the wall, 96 is too short.I'd add 6-12 inches at least. bumpy

RE: Okay How many RV'ers here use CB-Radio's?

well put as I have said before here, when approaching a city and want to ask a trucker which is best route to get thru, north side, south side or straight thru, exactly who do I call using my "advanced technology" magic phone? bumpy

RE: Okay How many RV'ers here use CB-Radio's?

I have a regular handheld CB, similar to one posted in a picture above, but it does not have an external antenna. my handheld like the one pictured has a removable antenna and I have a connector to convert the rubber ducky connector to a standard CB one. for "privacy" on my first cBs they used separate replaceable channel chips and I set up two CBS with different chips for send and receive, with the mirror image on the second set. somebody could listen to just half of our conversations. :) bumpy

RE: long term non-use/storage

I may get a company to deliver and install the starter battery. Then I could start it in the driveway and maybe circle the block carefully without insurance. That would not be legal, but it should be safe. so you are not spending $1000 for insurance (or less) and opening yourself to a law suit where you lose everything? bumpy

RE: long term non-use/storage

I have the insurance turned off except for comprehensive, so it's not legal to drive. don't know about your state but here if you drop the state min liability you must immediately turn in your plates. big fine daily if you don't. run, do not walk to your DMV office. bumpy

RE: Do you leave MH plugged in for power at home?

If you are just maintaining things, your 20 amp hook up is fine. I use one myself but do have it on a timer so it just gets a squirt of electricity in each day. bumpy
