RE: Do propane fire pits put out any heat?

I like the heat and ambiance of a good wood fire when camping. What are your thoughts? Do the propane pits put out a decent amount of heat compared to a modest wood fire? Short answer is no,they are nice to look at and use a lot of propane to get any good heat from them.I have a very good one and take it along when I know that a real fire is prohibited, for the ambiance only. But for the same ambiance and about the same amount of comfort of a real fire I think I will get one of THESE :B

RE: Loose side mirror

If it is a Velvac mirror,which it should be,there is a adjustment at the end of the arm,use a screwdriver to unscrew the cap, under it you will see inside the opening a hex screw I think a 3/8. turn it to tighten the mirror head. height=440

RE: crank up antenna won't crank up

I don't know why anyone would call a Winegard Batwing mediocre. I can pull in more with that sitting in front of my home and get more than 80 stations. I can now with the sensor pro get more than with the house rooftop antenna. The batwing is the best of all RV antenna I would certainly hope so,you are about 10 miles from the transmitters :B While sitting in my driveway at 26 miles from the same transmitters I get 174 width=280 With My Jack Antenna :B:B

RE: Replace bed in 23' Thor Majestic for dinette

Many of the 23 foot class C's have a large storage compartment under the corner bed. The bottom 'deck' of the compartment is not the same as the floor of the rv. So, while the bed could be removed, some serious work would need to be done to recreate a floor that is level with the rest of the rv. Also, it would be difficult to create ingress/egress into the booth and still have seating for 4. This is very true,this is what is under that corner bed. height=440 The floor of the RV is about level with the top of that cooler.

RE: crank up antenna won't crank up

I helped my Son In Law to do just that, he put on the Jack Antenna and to cover the hole left from the crank up antenna you will need This mounting Plate Worked out nicely. If you scroll down to the pictures you will see what it looks like mounted. It gets great reception.

RE: onan 4k gen

I have found that a can or 2 of Seafoam with each fillup will keep everything running well. I also try to run the Onan 4K monthly under load but it has set at times for longer than that and have never had any problems with mine in 10 years with more than 950 hours on it.

RE: Quality of Forest River

What is the steel wool for?Mostly to fill the hole, also to slow the mice chewing. Don't use steel wool as it will rust over time. Use stainless steel wool available at WalMart by the kitchen sponges. I did some research on the forum a few years back and found that mice and rats did chew thru steel wool but that the Copper Mesh stopped them completely,they really don't the taste.

RE: tire pressure class c

I agree but I will add by saying to add 10 psi to the front chart spec and 5psi to the rears. That is ludicrous the very reason of the spec chart is to give you the BEST INFORMATION why use it at all if you choose to ignore it...:S

RE: 2017 Ford dually tire valve stems access help please.

The ones you need are from Borg AKA Your Tire Supply. Dually Kit They will look like this. The valve stems for Duallys. I have a set from another vendor that was the original maker of them and have been on my Class C for over 10 years with no leaks or problems. You can Check the pressure on all tires in a matter of minutes. Valve stems

RE: Reflectix on window, long-term?

I have used it for more than 6 years in the window of the overhead bunk,to keep the heat down and keep from sun bleaching the curtains,it faces east when stored here at home. There has not been any downside to this or any problems. I also use it in the rear and side windows while stored here at home and also camping when needed. The nice thing I like about it over the solid,which I tried,if you want to see out all you have to do is take it down and roll it up for easy storage. Not so on the solid boards,always a storage problem,I found it was a real pain.

RE: Doing wheelies

That is good to know,I suspected that that is what they were. Now would be good time to add some extended valve stems,that would help in checking the air pressure. You could then put them back on with not having to worry about the sharp edges. The ones you need are from Borg AKA Your Tire Supply. Dually Kit They will look like this. The valve stems for Class C Duallys. I have a set from another vendor that was the original maker of them and have been on my Class C for over 10 years with no leaks or problems. You can Check the pressure on all tires in a matter of minutes. Valve stems DO NOT put the braided extenders on, they will leak and if they come loose from their mount on the wheel they will cause a catastrophic air loss.

RE: 6 Volt Interstate batteries

I am one of the ones that see the bad reviews and think,well did you treat them right? I have had my Costco Interstate Batteries for over 4 years and they perform as well as when they were new. I do a combination of boondocking and FHU camping. They are properly maintained. I think that is the key.
