Myrtle Point,OR to Bandon,OR

How is the road between Myrtle Point,OR and Bandon,OR for towing a 5th wheel? (Lampa Lane and 42S, I think.) I'm going to Gold Beach and it looks like the shortest route from Myrtle Point. I'm in Sutherlin now. Should I go via 138 and 38 (Reedsport) instead? Thanks

RE: 2014 3100RL Montana with a Demco Autoslide hitch Problems

I have had the same setup as JKJavelin and I always try to have the pinbox about 1/4 inch ABOVE the hitch's saddle, and have found this to work best. The pinbox will then contact the saddle about 1/3 of the way from back to front. It will still ride up the saddle somewhat, but with less friction. Demco says when hitching and unhitching, the center line of the pin box needs to be parallel with the center line of the hitch saddle to within 5 degrees. Otherwise the capture plate will prevent full engagement.

RE: what is best way to get TV stations in RV

RF Mogul satellite antenna and DISH Network. The antenna automatically acquires the satellites. Love it!

RE: Air ride pin box question

I don't understand why you think this might be a problem. All king pins point downward regardless of type of pin box.

RE: Is this normal?

You have a narrow view of things sport as many folks and RVers are elderly and/or have health issues such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, Arthritis, and cannot handle a heavy tire and rim or crawl under the rear of a truck for the spare on hot road service or in winter severe weather conditions, and on and on. Some are even in wheel chairs believe or not. Surprise surprise. Did I say Arthritis and many folks develop it at a young age. But I am sure you are aware 0f this now sport. Your education is complete. Also excuses for poor tow truck and road side service contracts are a cheap cop out macho ones. Way to go, "sport". That'll cheer him up!

RE: A/C no A/C no more

Could by freezing up. Try raising set temperature. I doubt it would freeze up after only 20 seconds of operation.

Furrion Oven Control Issue

I have a Furrion 3-Burner Cooktop & Oven. The oven temperature control has “play” in it such that it can be rotated thru about 50 degrees on the dial before the “play” is taken up. This results in a different setting when approached in a clockwise direction from the setting when approached in a counter-clockwise direction. Has anyone had this problem? If so, did you identify a fix? Thanks

RE: Hairline Cracks in Graphics

Thanks for all of the suggestions. I'm not at a point where a major restoration of the graphics (sand, repaint, or replace etc.) is called for. The use of a restorer which has to be done in the shade is practical when it's a DIY job, but not when using a mobile detailer who probably wouldn't want to do 1/2 the job and then come back when the other half is in the shade. Plus the detailer most likely wouldn't be familiar with using the restorer. I think I am going to choose a wax with good UV protection and see if my detailer will use it (properly). Thanks again for all the responses.

RE: Hairline Cracks in Graphics

I have stopped using wax on the graphics on my 07 MH. I found the wax was doing more harm than good. I found this product while asking the same type of question you are. I use the graphic restorer at least once a year try for twice. So far its as kept the graphic looking good. Good Luck Do you use the Max's Restorer on the graphics and regular wax on the gel coat that is not covered with a graphic? I use a mobile detailing service to wash and wax my 5th. They have been using wax on everything for 8 years and my graphics are not faded at all. Not sure if I could get a mobile detailer to use wax on the gel coat and restorer on the graphics. I'm sure it would take longer and cost more.

RE: Hairline Cracks in Graphics

Is there any way to "touch up" these cracks? Not really. These are "hairline" - extremely fine cracks that are not visible if you get 5 feet away from them. Any attempt to touch up them would for sure look much worse. I'm not looking to fix the ones that are there. I just want to prevent them from getting worse and from more forming.

Hairline Cracks in Graphics

The graphics on my 8 year old 5th have held up very well, maybe because it gets waxed every 6 months. However, now I am beginning to see hairline cracks in the darker graphics (decals) (no cracks in the white decals) on the side that faces the Palm Springs, CA sun all winter long. Wanting to prevent further cracking, I'm thinking of waxing the graphics more often, but I'm also open to hearing what others have done in response to this problem. Thanks

Condition of AZ 260

I have read where some of the Arizona highways are in bad shape as a result of the heavy snowfall last winter. How is AZ 260 between Camp Verde and Show Low? Any really rough sections? Thanks

RE: Hot water heater question .....

In "the old days", there was a gas switch inside and an electric switch outside on the heater itself. Maybe look for a rocker-type switch on the outside of your water heater? FYI: Forest River's spec's for this trailer says the water heater is "Gas/Electric DSI".

"ALL will hit when backing up..." I have not heard that before. Please explain why that is true. Thanks

RE: Accessing Spectrum Internet Public Access Points

It is interesting that the Spectrum wi-fi hotspot map lists both Spectrum and X-finity but my user name is at I'm' going to have to try one hot spot since I'll be there come Sunday with at least 1/2 if not a full hour to kill. (I like to arrive early so as to get the best parking) My user name is also at even though my account is with Spectrum. I think that is because Charter Communications owns Spectrum.

RE: Accessing Spectrum Internet Public Access Points

As I recall Spectrum jumped into the cellular phone service, the WiFi access points are default for connection for Spectrum phones, phone over internet protocol, the phones use cellular only if there is no Spectrum WiFi access point available The Spectrum wiFi access points are used not by default, but only when "Wifi Calling" is turned on. Otherwise, they are only used for data.
