RE: Outside camp kitchen fridge

All the ones we have seen are 110vac . Unless you have an inverter to power it while traveling it doesn’t seem to useful unless you pack it , cool it down and are not. Traveling to far

RE: Is it possible to finance a $23K trailer for 180 months?

FWIW, we have personal reasons for wanting a longer termed loan. None of it has to do with affordability, cash flow, bad credit, lack of a down payment, etc... The idea was to time the loan so that it'd be paid off right around the time our mortgage is paid + the time frame at which our youngest would be heading off on his own. Looks like we'll need to readjust our thinking. Thanks for all the help. Speaking from experience the children don’t always leave the nest as planed ! Something else to keep in mind . Plus in 12 years you most likely will either want a larger rv or be out of it altogether!

RE: GVWR over 10k on new truck, need commercial plates?

Here in ct you can register a truck for the max combination plates limit even if the truck has a higher gvwr But don’t get caught over that weight . In my case my truck has a 14k gvwr and I need to be near that weight so I have a commercial registration , no parkways for my truck and it’s a yearly renewal. I know this does help for mass but it could be similar .

RE: solar for your RV

We have been using a solar suitcase for over 10 years but there are times when there is no sun and a small generator is needed for battery charging . We carry a 1000 watt Honda generator for charging and we have a inverter to power what we need that’s not 12 volt , its quiet and sips gas . We prefer the portable solar panels because you can move them around to get some sun if your rv is under the trees. We used to use two 2000 watt Honda generators In parallel for our last larger RV with supplemental solar use as well .

RE: New England Travel

Ct just handed out two $1000.00 fines for people returning to the state from some of the 30 or more states on the list and not doing the 14 day Quarantine, don’t know how they found these people or how they will in force it but yes there are fines involved .

RE: Motor Carrier Road Atlas

I replace mine every few years , we mainly use it for the planing travel on the interstates and low clearances which don’t change very often. I have a 10 year old copy of the east and west mountain directory books and now they have a app so haven’t replaced them either the mountain grades don’t change either .

RE: First barrage with the dealer

Dealers do not currently need to make you a good deal , there are so many people that are buying rv’s for the first time they probably could get MSRP for most of their sales . Wait until spring and there will be a flood of rv’s that were used one time for sale ! The rv life is not the answer for everyone and not as simple as the industry is making it look with hitches proper tow vehicles, poor quality, plumbing and electrical repairs and tanks bing filled and emptied. Good luck in your plans .

RE: What's changed about camping?

Just wait until all the folks that just bought Rv’ s this year because of the pandemic get out here , most haven’t a clue about how To use the equipment they bought never mine campground rules or that the rules are for everyone! Have tried to assist a few but they know it all already and We have seen it in our travels . Next year there will be a lot of rv’s and gear for sale! It’s really a sign of our times unfortunately. I think it makes all the difference if you had previous generations teach you the proper way to do things in life as well as camping

RE: Roadside Food stops?

RE: Thoughts on slider awnings

They are great when new no need to brush off slides if your under trees with pine needles, pine cones , leafs or acorns however when they get older and stretched out they tend to flap in the wind and become annoying especially on a bedroom slide out . We currently have them because our unit came with them , they do make life easier, used to carry a ladder and brush to clean off all four slide on our last fifth wheel which did not have slide toppers. Now window awnings are very useful keeping the sun off the windows and helping keep cool as well as opening windows in the rain, we don’t have them but someday maybe.

RE: Disappointing test drive

We test drove a few gas A’s a few years ago and all handled like that and the salesman advised me there were aftermarket solutions, I said for the price I shouldn’t have To add equipment to a brand new motorhome! We then went to entry level pushers and with the 300 to 340 hp motors they felt like they couldn’t get out of their own way so we stayed with our fifth wheel for few more year and ended up in a TC are are very happy.

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

Depends on your inverter / charger , if you have a 3 stage that will adjust your charge rate and not boil off your batteries then it Should not be a problem leaving the power connected . If not then you would need to keep an eye on your batteries to prevent boiling off the water again that is if your running wet cell style batteries.

RE: Banks Electronic Exhaust Brake

Anyone should be able to do the install. It is a matter of routing a couple of wiring harnesses and plugging them in. The hardest part is getting to the plug on the transmission. It’s not that hard to install at all . I installed the banks speedbrake on my 2007 Chevy D\A myself but that said look out for your transmission to start leaking transmission fluid at the connector after the banks harness is installed , the internal side of that connector leaks around the pins and the internal harness has to be replaced to stop the leak , not a huge job but you do have to drop the pan to replace the harness if the pins start leaking after they are disturbed. In my research at the time I learned that it was very common for the fluid to leak past the pins after pulling the connector and reinstalling the banks harness. once the internal harness was replaced the leak stoped and the banks brake worked great for towing a 16k fifth wheel however depending on the settings you use the brake can be very aggressive , Mike

RE: Good Sam RA Leap!

Double the price, a reward for being a member renewing with them it’s cheaper to join another service and they all use the same contractors, you would think they would offer some incentives to keep the members coming back rather than charge more and have you jump ship ?
