RE: Klamath Falls Oregon to Lakeview Oregon

We went through there last year with our 31 foot FW. It was fine, and we overnighted at Juniper's Reservoir Rv Park, which belongs to Passport America. We continued east the next day and found that after Lakeview, no diesel for 200 miles! We were about 10 miles into the mountains and told the wife that we would need to fill up in about 100 miles. She looked and said there's nothing for 200 miles, so we turned around and filled up in Lakeview. Surprisingly desolate country there. JK

RE: Open Range slide issue

It's the gearbox, almost guaranteed. You should belong to the Open Range owners forum. Someone on there just changed theirs yesterday. 2016 is the peak year for failures, since they redesigned the gearbox in 2015 and that turned into a disaster. It took a couple years for BAL to get it right. The new replacements seem to be ok. is usually the best place to buy. R25076. I have the part number memorized for some reason..... JK Edit: I've done 2 of them and if you can turn a wrench it's easy. Put the slide halfway out, support it outside. Remove the wood trim, and like mentioned above, mark the chains and cable adjustments with Whiteout and put everything back in exactly the same position when done. Watching the YouTube videos helps a lot.

RE: Motor Home/Trailer Life Magazines Cease Publication

This seems like a good spot to add this. Received my Highway magazines the other day. Do you all remember when it was full of stories and great information. For me this last issue was just another extension of the advertising for CW. We've been getting this thing all summer. This is just a flyer with a couple small articles, a new look, nothing more. It's taking the place of the old Camping World flyer. JK

RE: Upgrading to a better phone

We've used Ting for our cell phone service for almost 5 years. You only pay for what you use and they do sell phones, including cheap ones. Our bill for 2 smartphones is usually about $33/month total. Our daughter's is usually about $17/month. JK

RE: How do you pay your bills on the road on extended trips?

I use the Winegard Connect2 with 4G in our 5th wheel. It is also secure using it with an rv park's free wifi. JK

RE: Changes to Snowbird lifestyle and Snowbird communitiess

Hey, we're fairly new at this, having gone south the during the last 3 winters, but we've only gone southwest, partly because Florida is crowded and you can't get in anywhere. I told my wife that if we're ever doing Florida in the winter, this is the year. We go for about 10 weeks, but like to move around. JK

In 2008, we bought a new Dodge Caravan, and I bought a 3rd party extended warranty from the dealer for 5 years/ 60,000 miles from a company I never heard of. Sometime later I was kinda regretting it, worrying that the company might go under. This was a Purchase Price Refund warranty, meaning that if I didn't use the warranty, I would get my money back. Well, I never had to use that warranty on that van, and after the 5 years I got all my money back (nearly $2k), except for a $50 service fee. Two years later I put that $2k towards a 2015 Town & Country with the Chrysler warranty. They don't offer the Purchase Price Refund warranty anymore. JK

I prefer an extended warranty from the manufacturer. When I bought my 2018 Ram, the dealer's price was outrageous, so I waited a bit. A few months ago I decided to pursue one before the original warranty expired and while trolling a Ram forum, someone suggested Clay Robbins ([email protected]) of Kansas. He seems to beat everybody in price for the bumper to bumper Chrysler warranty. JK

RE: Ladders This , it fits in a plastic fence post thats attached to the rear bumper. Its not the greatest, i would not stand on it for hours but it works for TT. I have one of these and it's great. Stable, and folds into about 4"×6" for storage. JK

RE: Cracked frame Heartland/Lippert - Warranty but no help!

In my opinion, which is worth pennies, those cracks were caused by excessive heat in the base metal when welding the hangers on, and there's a good chance that the other hangers might be the same. I'm guessing that the shop that found the second one looked at them all, but the first 2 were pretty gross cracks. Look for any sign of a rust colored line. Not an expert, just trying to help. JK

RE: Scottsdale in winter.......

Good thing you're looking now. The last 2 years in March was hard to find a place for even a couple nights. In 2019 we found a place 40 miles west of Phoenix, this year it was out of business. Found a place in Surprise and everybody's awning was almost touching the rig next door. JK

RE: advice on 5th wheel hitch option

Yes had a hijacker/demco for 10 yrs ,great hitch,had to rebuild the head after 30000 miles,ill take the Andersen anyday Question alboy: What was broken/worn out on the Demco? I've got just over 30,000 miles on mine and it's almost like new, though it's only 3 years old. I've only had to replace the little rubber bumper so it doesn't rattle when unhitched. JK

RE: Members who have had by-pass surgery.

Two weeks from tomorrow will be 5 years since my quadruple bypass. The widowmaker was 99% blocked. I was 60 years old, and active,but this came out of the blue. There was no heart attack,though I'm now branded with Heart Disease. I was off work for 6 weeks and, really, I'd say it took a whole year to gradually get back to normal. JK PS... I was told about needing the bypass a couple hours before it happened...didn't have time to think about it!

RE: Surge Guard Overdose

Perhaps the one installed isn't an EMS. If it's not, then you need an EMS.

RE: We camped without George for the first time.

We had our solar system installed on March 9th this year while in Quartzsite. That morning was the last time we ran our Champion generator (except to run the gas out once we got home). We've brought it along since "just in case" but the real test will be next week when we go to the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest in the Wisconsin north woods. JK

RE: Pin Box with Air

I've had the AirRide pinbox for almost a year now leave it inflated all the time. I've found it's a little trickier to unhitch mine compared to a standard pinbox because of the pin's angle when it's inflated. Perhaps if you start with the trailer a little lower so that it can ride up onto the saddle(?) a bit. JK
