RE: Roof Vent covers

While waiting search this forum for `vent covers'?

RE: Anybody still going out?

Did I read this correctly. An RVer is thinking of calling it quits while we have yet to go on trip #1 because of the cool weather in the Midwest and the pandemic!!

RE: Buy new now or wait until end of summer

Having checked my crystal ball I see lots of used RV's for sale at the end of this season and many for after next season. People who jumped on the RV bandwagon will find that it's not the fairy tale existence that the promotions indicated and will want to sell and get out. The ball might be a little dirty not having used it in awhile.

RE: Traveling around Lake Michigan

2nd on Door County. We stay there each year for two weeks (non pandemic years) and stay at Egg Harbor Campground which has sites for any size rig and full hookups. Take a tour of Washington Island recently chosen as the best place to retire to. We are bikers (electric bicycles) and ride all over Door County. In Mackinaw City stay at Mill Creek. You must have a Pastie that was the bridge builders favorite lunch. Watch the history of how the bridge was built at Mama Mia's Pizza Restaurant upstairs `theatre'. Take the ferry to Mackinac Island for a day. Rent a horse drawn carriage. No cars on the Island. Tour Grand Hotel if you have some loose money to spend.

RE: New Mattress

Hands down the best mattress we have ever used at home or on the RV is made by If you want the 2nd best mattress read the other responses. BTW did you get a good deal on the price of the RV?

RE: Door latch

We had a post sometime back about the owner slamming his door and some of us, including me, replied that we had never slammed the door and the latch has held up just fine. Could that be the root cause of the cheap latch problem? I pull on the handle to retract the latch, close and hold the door closed, release the handle, and give the door a little push to be sure it latches completely. We apparently didn't do the very last instruction and the door opened enroute. Very embarrassing but nothing was lost.

RE: Corroded 7-pin no more

A long time ago I had to drill out the sockets of my connector to make it work. One might try Corrosion X.

RE: TPMS suggestions

Didn't read all the responses but I would suggest staying away from the sensors that are built into the tires because, at one time, not every tire shop could or would deal with the sensors when they repaired a tire. That may have changed but we have the kind where the sensor is installed on the metal valves so don't have the problem

RE: Strange water pressure issue

Is there a back flow preventer in the CG inlet port in the RV? It could be clogged or just plain stuck. Replace the plastic ones with a metal one.

RE: Help! Hitch stuck in ball mount.

Do you have a sledge hammer? I hope the locking latch was fully open when you hitched up.

RE: Paducah, Kentucky question

Do a Google search for `Paducah tourism' and read on. DO NOT try to get a site during the quilting festival which, I think, lasts two weeks.

RE: Under the sink water filtration

At our stick house we have an under counter filter to a separate spigot on the sink that required drilling another hole, of course. My office has a countertop filter with a hose to a special adapter on the end of the faucet. pull out a plunger to get filtered water and it goes back to raw water when the water is shut off. Seems to work. Never tested the water, however. Relatively easy to install but it takes up some counter space.

RE: Looking for pantry ideas

Unless you are a full timer, with no access to woodworking tools, it shouldn't be too hard to build one to your exact dimensions. I think I would use 1/2 inch plywood for the sides and back (front door?) piano hinge. use 1 x 2 horizontal supports on the sides to hold up the 1/2 inch shelves. You can use screen bead across the front of the shelves to dress them up. It's not Amish furniture but it would probably get the job done. Maybe a better idea is to do a Google search?

RE: Main entry door shuts hard

Just off the top is there any chance of recessing the strike plate a tad or, at least, the forward edge of the plate?

RE: Sharp reverse turn with Equl-i-zer hitch?

I've done it for years with no problem; backing into my gravel path from the street.

RE: Tips/Tricks/info on Full-time RV'ing For Beginners

45 years! You must be pretty old :-) How's your health? Full-timing or even vacationing by yourself is tough like owning a moving house. Are you sure you are up to it? Just sign me `wet blanket'.

RE: Value of used RV

The value of a used RV is whatever a buyer wants to pay at the time you want to sell it. You won't get as much as you want but if you want to get rid of it...

RE: RV Mattress

In our experience the very best mattress on the market is made by Verlo. We have them in our sticks house and RV.

RE: Best time to buy new?

The best deal is finding the RV that fits your camping lifestyle. If it doesn't no deal is a deal.
