RE: PA Local income taxes?

Kiplinger tax info for PA Rob didn't seem not tax friendly to me. bumpy

RE: How to empty fresh water tank without pump?

did a valve somehow get switched so it is trying to pull water in from a remote fill rather than the tank? there has gotta be a drain however. bumpy

RE: Trailer length - does that influence spot availability?

For us the comfort of the bigger rig always outweighs the minimal hassle. buy the one that fits your needs best. don't limit yourself to a 30 footer for example, if there is a perfect one available at 32 feet. and if you are just making a decision based on the designation made by the mfr., you don't really know the exact length anyway. the only place that the exact length matters is if there is some issue at your home where it will be stored and covenants, etc. apply. bumpy

RE: Low Voltage on One 50A Leg

so as a 30a RVer, sounds like it may be worth carrying two 50a - 30a adapters, one for each line. Pick the one with the higher voltage. Anyone do that instead of plugging into the 30a receptacle? at one time I was going to take my continuity tester to the RV stores and test the 30/50 amp pigtails to see if I could find two that were different but thought better of it. :) you could of course make your own adapter. bumpy

RE: Trailer length - does that influence spot availability?

are you talking about commercial campgrounds or some mud hole state parks, etc.? I never had trouble with my 35 ft Class A with toad but I usually made reservations and specified the length required. bumpy

RE: How to increase water flow AFTER the filters?

Interesting concept. What micron and style filters did you use? Do you have any pictures of your setup? don't remember specifics, think it was a spun fiber one first to catch dirt, followed by a "good" (don't remember specs) one to remove bacteria and lead/etc. I made my "connection" with PVC piping/fittings. as I recall, incoming water came into the PVC "T" which had two L fittings to the filters. it so happened that the T and Ls ended up being exactly the right distance apart to put the filters in parallel. will see if I can find the setup and take a pix. I used some quick disconnects to be able to easily assemble things. bumpy

RE: Minimum gate opening width needed for TT parking........

buy a 7 or 7 1/2 ft wide trailer. back it in straight and buy a small motorized dolly to inch it thru the opening. bumpy

RE: How to increase water flow AFTER the filters?

............ Nothing is parallel. 3 filters in series. and therein lies your problem. get three more filters, link them in series, and put both sets in parallel. the first set up I tried was a dirt catcher filter followed by an effective one. got no flow rate, put two sets in parallel and worked great. bumpy

RE: Minimum gate opening width needed for TT parking........

I don't think a TT would pose a problem. now a large class A with mirrors sticking out two feet per side is different. bumpy

RE: How to increase water flow AFTER the filters?

So bigger filters and housings seems the only solution. or as I stated before, use multiple filters in parallel. bumpy

RE: How to increase water flow AFTER the filters?

I used two filters in parallel to get double the flow rate. bumpy

RE: Cassita travel trailer general questions

I seriously considered one years back. stopped by the factory in TX. the bath seemed better than some of the other small ones. at that time to get a full length hanging closet you had to get the roof AC. they had one floor plan that had the dinette/bed in the back which could be left made up as a bed all the time as it had a small table and two swivel chairs also. bumpy

RE: What do you shut off when leaving for a trip

Also when gone, the garage door opener is on a leviton controller so that the garage door can't be opened between 10pm and 8 am. my garage door opener was plugged into an outlet box adjacent to the motor, etc. and I just changed that to an extension cord that I ran to a lower outlet box. unplug that cord and that door won't budge. bumpy

RE: Tow, Tow, Tow your boat and keep fingers crossed.

I would guess that when the boat is on the trailer, they flip down the wheel to take the weight. that would be some extreme torque if not. bumpy That's just a tongue jack wheel, not a wheel for towing. I thought that the assumption here was that it was only used for launch/retrieve. bumpy

RE: What do you shut off when leaving for a trip

I make sure that the hoses to the clothes washer are shut off. bumpy

RE: '07 Lincoln Town Car Towing

Thanks for the good comments folks! I have a lot of experience towing with 'Burbs, and big vans, but the laat time I tried a sedan I got my arse whooped. A guy in Canada advise I could tow my Airstream Flying CLoud 25 with a Chrysler 300 V6. Spent a bucket load of money on a custom hitch, and the rig almost killed me on our first outing when it over heated up a 4% grade and then the brakes wouldn't stop the whole rig on the way down. My wife brained me over that fiasco. Being careful this time. fool me once, shame on you. fool me twice,................ bumpy
