RE: Burlington, Iowa Campground

We camped right in town there near the river a few years back. A nice clean paved campground that I'm quite sure was city owned. Good convenient location.

RE: Insurance Recommendation?

Progressive is good, also add their tow package.

RE: Small Window AC vs Roof Top Air

Another plus for a window air is that you may be able to park so that it won't be in the direct sun. That also helps alot! Brian

RE: Brake Lights

If you're SURE the fuse is good, I'd be checking the brake light switch next. Brake light switch at pedal and the ground. Brian

RE: Convert your old Class C to a custom cargo carrier

They are good machines to the bitter end! That would bring a larger draw to a state fair demo derby than cars any day of the week! Brian

RE: problem with electric water heater-Fixed but new problem

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. I would also question the thermostat. Normally the element should be either good or bad. Brian

RE: Daunting it's not...rooftop AC replacement

Thanks for the post. That also tells me that the gasket replacement would be easy! Brian

RE: Insurance - Increase Every Year About $100

My Progressive rates have remained approximatly the same on our Class C for 10 years. Something doesn't seem right. We buy our autos and RV insurance on line. Brian

RE: Looking for a propane setup for seafood boil cooking

I use the turkey fryer pot to boil crab legs. I also have the 1/2 size pot with a basket to deep fry fish. Either one will work well depending on how big of a pot you need. That propane burner will bring it up to speed in a hurry. Brian

RE: Quick winter question

If that is the lowest the temp. gets with daytime temp. warmer, it will most likely be okay with your furnace set to 50 with cupboard doors open. Key words are "Most Likely" Enjoy your New Camper, Brian

RE: Old Campers

That is a nice example of an early slide. Never seen one like that. Brian

RE: Medicare ads!!!!!

Can anyone tell me why we are suffering thru these unending Medicare advantage ads? Because people are too dumb to go to and get price comparison without interference from the companies running deceptive ads. I use the zero payment Medicare Advantage because I don't want to pay hundreds of dollars monthly and I do realize that if everything goes bad I might pay a bit more out of pocket. In those years years where there are no extraordinary medical expenses, I am ahead. So far I am way ahead of the game. I'm doing the same thing. The Zero plan does have a max out of pocket, so hopefully our world won't come to an end. If I bought every insurance I'd been broke long ago. Brian

RE: What is a good camp stove to buy now days?

For a small portable, the lightweight butane can't be beat. It is offered by several makers. Measures about 10" X10" X 3" thick. Has it's own spark ignighter and cost $20 - $25. The brands are virtually all the same, I think Coleman even has their name on one. I love mine! Brian

RE: Rubber Roof

I used Henry's Trop I Cool on mine with good results. I did the entire roof. This can be purchased or ordered from Home Depot. I'm not sure if the product you used was compatible with your roof. You'll have to wait till spring now. Brian

RE: 6 gal electric hot water heater upgrade

Have a 18 ft Jayco and hot water heater went out. Wanting to see if anyone has ever replaced the original with a smaller electric one. Don’t really like the use of propane for anything inside. If you know you're always going to have electricity why not. I assume you mean a conventional 6 gallon electric heater. It is certainly cheaper than an RV water heater. A lot of misinformation in this thread. An RV water heater on electric does not take hours to recover, it takes 1 hour (1400 watt element). A conventional residential heater takes less than an hour (1650 watts). An add in element for an RV heater is an option but will take more than 2 hours or so to recover (675 watts), and if its a Suburban removing the anode rod to install one is not a good idea. What GDS said is SPOT on. I was going to replace mine with the 6 gallon electric. You have to make sure you have the space needed to do this. With the water lines coming out of the top I didn't have enough space to make it happen. Make sure you do the measuring. Brian

RE: Dark interiors

We looked at new RVs a year ago and did not like any of the color schemes at all. The were all the same. It made it easy for us to like what we have. Brian

RE: Dinette Cushions

My wife did ours. We bought "quality" foam and she made new zipper covers with upolstrey fabric of our choice. One thing to keep in mind is don't get foam that is too thick as you won't have the clearance between the top of your legs and the bottom of the table. Gives you the chance to truly make your RV to your personal taste! Brian

RE: '05 Salem Hot Water Leak

You have to be able to some how get to it. If you have to change it out you'll need to disconnect water and gas lines from it for removal. Keep looking, Brian

RE: removing antenna ??

Yes, I threw mine away when I re-sealed the roof. I removed it, screwed down a tin patch, covered with eternabond and recoated the roof with Henry's Trop i Cool. This is also what I did with the roof top luggage rack years back. I use one of the indoor antenas you can buy at a discount store which works well with local channels. I also am not concerned with getting good TV reception! Brian

RE: What is going on with this roof?

I think all of your ideas are on track. Clean and scrape the seams and apply eternabond tape to them. On mine I also ran eternabond tape around my roof vents. Dicore self leveling works good too, and around plumbing vents. After cleaning the roof, if it still looks iffy I would consider coating the entire roof with a product suitable for aluminum and going over the eternabond tape and dicor. When I did mine I also removed the uneeded stuff like the luggage rack and TV antenae. Once the roof is done then you can go on to the rest. Brian
