RE: SPAM-alama-dingdong 2.0

We were in Hawaii a few years ago and was amazed at the amount and variety of flavors of SPAM on the shelves in the supermarkets. While there you have to try Loco-Moco a Great breakfast!

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

After looking at a couple of stores I found a good fit for the Dometic 320 toilet. ~$41 at Lowes. Replaced them in two of my Thor Majestic 28a RVs. Soft close. No slip. Perfect color match (bone). Less than half the price compared to the Dometic replacement seat/lid. Enjoy! Chris Hey SJ Chis,great write up on your quest for that toilet seat.The pictures are a plus,it will help others I am sure.Another post that I will archive in my files so it may help others,in case you don't see it first. :B Have a great camping season.

RE: SPAM-alama-dingdong 2.0

One of my favorite things is the old stand by of biscuits and gravy,but with the Spam twist. Starting with diced and fried Spam then mixing it with my Home Made Country Gravy then mixing in the Spam then ladling it over my biscuits.

RE: Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injection

I want to thank all the Forum Members that responded here.I seems that from this it is mostly a good start and may get rid of this bad back pain and the pain in my right leg and foot and the limping around so I can get back to the RVing I am going for it and right now I am waiting authorization from the insurance and the referral. After I get that and the procedure I will come back and let you all know how it went and results. Thank again.

Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injection

I thought that with the demographics and the active lifestyle I might ask here about this procedure.Seems that there may be a lot of senior members that have or had demanding physical jobs leading to back problems.I know 40 years of bouncing around in trucks did not do my back any favors. My orthopedic surgeon wants to try this before cutting,which is all right by me! My MRI shows moderate impingement L5-L4 I have read some good things about this but I would like to ask anybody that has had this procedure how well it worked or not. Thanks for any thing that may be of help.

RE: Leveling Blocks

I tried the Lego type blocks but found that they broke to easy and were a pain to setup when you don't get it right the first time and had to drive off,re-stack, and make them higher,to labor intensive. When I bought my RV,a Former Rental, it came with Tri Level Ramps They don't break and if they are good enough to withstand the use in that market they must be good,they still put them in their rentals I have used them a lot in the last 11 years and have had no problems and they are easy to use and store. I have 6 just in case but never have used them all,4 is the most I have ever needed,most times just 2 if at all,they were for the rear duallys. I found that The Tri leveler work very well.$_3.JPG?set_id=2

RE: Pulled to the left when being passed by Big Rigs

When an 18-wheeler overtakes your RV, it's bow-wave of air hits the left rear of the trailer first, and that pushes the rear toward the shoulder. When the body rear moves right slightly before the rear axle does, it amplifies the push to the left that you feel in the front causing you to correct steering As the 18-wheeler bow wave moves toward the front , it pushes the front of the trailer to the right, it amplifies the steering correction you have already done causing you to have to correct to the left. This whole thing, if you are not used to the feelings, can be quite scary. One way to overcome that is to install Vortex Generators like Air Tabs They cut down on the dead air and drag on the rear of RV and greatly reduce the bow wave of passing trucks. I have AIRTABS on my Class C. They really help on a cross wind situation,no more sudden buffeting. It has stopped the sideways push when being passed or passing a large truck. They are a vortex generator that produce a counter rotating air trail several feet behind the vehicle, This airflow alteration improves vehicle stability. As far a mileage it may helped some but the stability they provided is amazing.

RE: Mirror replacement

The most common reason is water intrusion.The water comes in and sits in the washer that holds the spring on the pot metal shaft corroding it until it breaks under the pressure of the spring. height=344 The fix is to replace the whole assembly,If they are Velvac mirrors the part # for them is on the bottom of them,this will help in get the right parts. This company will help you out,they have a lot of Velvac Mirrors and parts,look around on their site you might find something that would work for you. Pacific RV Mirrors. height=344 Right Mirror: height=344 If you are handy you can replace the mirror yourself,I have replaced mine it wasn't very hard to do. This Link posted by CloudDriver will walk you thru the repair.

RE: Poop Tote Carrier

i didn't see him remove any wheels, i think he done a great job. Yes, it was behind the wheels. A great way to store it, out of sight and out of mind. Ladder or truck bed works, but this is so much neater. I think ya'll missed it,he was talking about the wheels on the Poop Tote :B :S

RE: Help with identifying delamination / water damage

You have been given some pretty good answers and advice so far.The one thing that always seem to come up when talking about a Former Rental is the old wives tale of "drive it like ya stole it" and many other flat out wrong statements and misleading information. Remember that when you rent a RV you sign a contract that says you are liable for any damages and also a $1000 deposit. Also they have to be maintained and documented to stay on the road,thus making money. When you get time read thru the Buying A Former Rental thread. This will give you real answers from owners of Former Rentals,there you will find more that 140 members that are happy with their choice.I have yet to see anyone say that they are sorry that they bought one or any that have had a major problem. I have had my Former Rental for more than 11 years and All of the appliances, refrigerator, stove top, oven, microwave, furnace, water heater, A/C, all have been trouble free and worked without fail. They are all the original ones that came with the RV when new. All doors, cabinets and drawers are tight and working as they should, the fit and finish is still very good. Even all the tank sensors work! The Onan generator has been trouble free with over 900 hours on it, just routine maintenance and running it monthly under load if has not been used, to make sure that it stays that way. The Chassis part has only had 2 small problems, one a slight over heating problem that was solved with the installation of a Severe Duty Fan Clutch and the other was a small leak in the transmission tail shaft seal that was replaced at the 100000 mile checkup. Not too bad for a vehicle that is over 16 years old, being put in service as a rental for 5 years in Feb. 2006 and has over 140000 miles on it. So welcome to the Forum and I hope that your quest for that perfect RV will be fruitful.

RE: Waste water totes for fresh water

I see no reason not to use a new unused tote you described.It is made out of HDPE it is widely approved by both standards organizations and code agencies for potable cold water applications.

RE: Attn Dedmiston

But there is one that IMHO is too quick on the draw and will NOT explain why there was discipline as the others will happily give reason. I do recall that at onetime this Mod that you took to task explained to you in very plain articulate and eloquent language why and how you went beyond what is acceptable. I did agree with him at that time as I do now.IMHO I think that Forum Rule #5 was was very close to being broken.

RE: Looking for a new RV for my daighter

Another avenue is to looking at the Rental Market . In your situation, that strategy makes a lot of sense. You can get into a RV for a surprising figure! Also have a RV that has had proper maintenance,they come with a 1 year or 12,000 mile power train warranty and 30 days on all major appliances. There are more than 140 members that have done this and are very happy with their decision. Welcome to the Forum and Good Luck in your search.

RE: Where have all the members gone on this forum?

Having read thru most of this thread and I have to admit that I don't think that most of the sub-forums are not over moderated except for one and I have blocked it so I wont even see it. On another note a on the question of where they have gone.I used to get a lot of information from 2 members that seemed to have disappeared. One was Chris Bryant. Also Old Biscuit,when going to his profile it says"member could not be found" Did he pizz off the wrong person and get banned again or was taken out by mistake like last time?
