RE: It could have went bad!

*Knock on Wood*, I think the worst thing that I done was left the awning rod in the strap. It flopped in the wind and along the side of the motorhome for about 50 miles before I noticed it! Luckily it didn't come off in traffic, which could have ended bad. My uncle was removing his load levelers, and had a piece of steel pipe that he unlatched them with. His phone rang and he went to answer it, after he remove the load level pin, The bar came flying down and gashed the front of his pants and and leg open. He just knew that it cut his "man goods" in two. He went inside and his wife checked, and the bar barely scraped his thigh. That could have ended real bad!

RE: How do I turn off my Dish network

NEVER NEVER NEVER use the word "suspend" ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS use the term " disconnect " or " cancel my service " . If you use the word suspend they will put your account on pause and bill you a $5 monthly fee to maintain the account. If you truly have Pay-AS-You-Go. Just don't pay the next months bill, the account will cancel automtically. this is usually how we do it. but if we find ourselves ready to shut down with more than a few days left in the month we'll call and our unused balance will become a credit on the account. This is good to know that this is an option. Do they credit you monitary wise, or credit with service days? We use pay as you go for Football season and never knew that we could do this.

RE: Space Heater

We have had used a sunbeam fan forced heater for about 5 years, which was great, and had actual temperature settings. I was looking buy another this weekend since we now have the large Class A with 50amp, but they no longer make it. I bought a ceramic heater, and it works no where near as good. I personally like the one with numbered temperature settings so it is easier to adjust instead of just dots.

RE: Broken key, locked out of TT, no spare :(

We had that happen when we had a hybrid, but that was an easy solution. My friend lock their self out of their TT or lost the keys or something. He dropped his 5 years old down through the roof vent.

RE: Campground Theft

KNOCK ON WOOD - we have never had anyone mess with anything in the 25 years that we have been camping. We have been fortunate to not lock and put everything up before leaving either. We may lock the door just depending on where we are. We did have a friend has a Yeti cooler stolen. It had a Gamecock sticker on it. He saw one a few days later in the campground and questioned the owner. He was told a friend gave it to him. He told him about his being stolen, and that he put a mark in a unique spot and asked if he could look. He opened the lid, and sure enough, it was his. Still even had some of his beer in it!

RE: how do you keep sewer tank clear

Keep them clean? Not to use them.... to keep the debris free as possible, use LOTS and LOTS of water!

RE: I'm In College Football Haven Over Here!

U-S-C, GO *****! Muschamp has a fresh new pair of spectacles. He can now see what's going on. We came to play again Georgia. I hope we can keep the momentum going for Florida at home!

RE: Sewage Follies

That is a strange smelly set up. I couldn't watch. I would be gagging! As far as the honeywagon, we camp at Darlington, SC for the NASCAR race each labor day and have been doing it for 15+ years. The honeywagon comes around sucking out campers. We have also always been concerned about tanks collapsing from it. We were talking to a worker this year that owns the company that has been doing the area we camp in since we have been going. He said he has never seen or personally heard of a tank collapsing, and like he said, if it happened, word would have probably spread fast and they would have been run out of Darlington County for good.

RE: What do you want in a campground?

Shade, some privacy, clean bathhouses, level sites...

RE: Blackstone Griddle

I have a 36" blackstone at home that we use at least 203 times per week, and a 84"sq Blue Rhino that we take camping and tailgating. Best grills I ever purchased!

RE: Best Self-Leveling Sealant For An Aluminum Roof?

We have a Fiberglass roof on our Class A, and just sealed all of our seams in May with Proflex RV Instant Roof Repair. That stuff isn't going anywhere for a while. Just painted on it with a paint brush. I recently checked, and still looks great 6 months later.

RE: Steps don't stay out/shade won't go all the way down

Following! We have the same issue with our steps. Currently, we crawl on the ground and unplug the wiring harness under the camper to keep the steps out when camping.

RE: Are my A/C's working correctly?

We have a 35ft class A with a 15k and 13.5k btu. Both can keep it 69* with no problem when it was close to 100 outside and humid during July. We do use reflectix material in the windows and added a thermal curtain behind the front curtain. But it cools without a problem. Now it may take it all day into the night to get to that temperature when we first set up, but it maintains it once it gets there. And I was told by our A/C guy that the A/C should cool the air 20* cooler than the return air, not the exterior air temperature.

2 6v batters VS 2 12v

I just replaced the house batteries in our Sea Breeze after getting 8 years out of them. It had to 6v in it. Just curious, why do some people run two 6 volts instead of parallel 12v?

RE: outdoor shower help

ill pull the head and check for smutz just seemed strange to be that it would go from fine to nothing not fine to low pressure. sounds like something is clogging it. If that doesn't work, disconnect the house from the faucet and see if you are getting water from there also.

RE: outdoor shower help

Take your shower head hose off and make sure it isn't clogged with debris anywhere.

RE: replacement awning

We just replaced ours Saturday. We order the awning material for Dyers RV Online, only because that was the only place that we could find that provided vinyl replacements with the metal weather shield and had blue. I emailed several times with questions, and they always replied quick. As far as replacing, we watched youtube video and had 4 people total with two ladders. We took our time and kept double checking instructions. Took us about an 2.5 hours to complete.
