RE: Large camper with single AC

Simply putting a small fan inside, blowing the length of the rig helps a lot.

RE: Thoughts on slider awnings

We wouldn't be without them, but one important thing to remember ONE time. After a rain, have DW stand beside the slide to watch and make sure it rolls up properly. If there is much water on top, you will not need to do it more than once. Make sure you have the door locked from the inside first.

RE: Any good/cheap electric razor for camping?

I have used a Braun series 7 for a number of years at home and ave been very well pleased. So I bought a Braun series 3 at Walmart for less that was bubble-packed under $50. That was a BIG mistake. Get a good Braun, and it will do you well for many years. But the Series 3 model is junk.

RE: Entry door latch broke!

Leave a window unlocked instead. It can be slid open and a small person can get in and open the door from inside.

RE: Entry door latch broke!

I read ond case where the writer, being a metal worker, made a steel copy of the cam, and replaced the original. That is the only fix I have ever heard of. My rule is to always leave a window unlocked, so someone can get inside to unlock, and replace the lock. Otherwise, you have a broken window to repair also.

RE: Pennsylvania Synchronous Fireflies

Apparently they have been recently discovered in Pennsylvania. Tere is a link to find out more. They are so popular in the GSMP that you have to win a lottery ticket to get a place to see them from. Fireflys

RE: Pennsylvania Synchronous Fireflies

Have not heard of them ever there, our only place to see them was in the Smokies, at Elkmont campground. It was a lot of trouble and confusion, but the sight was really amazing and somethng not to be missed if you can manage it. Now that folks have found out about them, it is very difficult to get there because of the crowds of people.

RE: I need to find 6V batteries

Change to 12V, just be sure to connect them in parallel instead of series. At any good Auto parts store. You will need a couple of jumper cables.

RE: Dually valve stem extensions

Find an established truck tire company, and they can take care of your needs. This is truck tire situatio, ano Auto tire. Many Auto Tire places do not have the knowledge or equipment to properly handle truck problems.

RE: Generic questions about 5-ers

I would prefer the MH rather that a trailer, mainly because I have no use for a big gas heavy truck. We have a mid-range 2005 Gulfstream, previously had an entry-level Hurricane, We would have no problems going anywhere in the US that we want to. So, far, we have 40 of the lower 48 on our map, and might add a few yet. We have a 2011 HHR as a toad, and sure, I have had to unhitch it a few times, but that is not a problem, as it is less than a minute to do that. And, if the route seems iffy, I send the wife ahead in the toad to check things out. That has save us several times.

RE: CPAP Battery for Boondocking

Get the 12V cord, and have an outlet installed beside your bed. Been doing that for 10+ years, and it works perfect. Only thing though,, at home, if power goes off, lack of air wakes me almost instantly. In the RV, as I am connected directly to the battery supply, if external power goes out, 12V is OK, and CPAP continues running as if nothing has happened. Therefore, I sleep on peacefully. Can be good or bad, whatever.

RE: Closest to Pantry Conversion any Good Examples?

Yes, slide-out helves are about the best solution. We build our own, and there are lots of different ways to do it, depending on your rig and the way it is built.

RE: Door hard to open from outside

duplicate, deleted. sorry.

RE: Door hard to open from outside

With what you are saying, it would be a VERY good idea to leave at least one of your windows unlocked so that someone can get into the rig from outside when the door latch fails, which it will. The lock can be taken apart from inside and the door opened, but not from the outside. If you are locked out, it is a real problem. Ask me how I know. I always have one unlocked so someone can get inside to get things open.

RE: Ladder

Stay away from places that it might get stolen.

RE: Hi from the 'sip

First thing is to NOT go out and buy a lot of stuff. You probably have most anything you need already in your home, so maybe try what you have before you buy. One of the biggest mistakes many people do is to go out and buy, then figure out later how much they really don't need or use. You will need a good certified safe water hose, sewer hoses and such, a few varied extension cords, and for me, a portable took kit with wrenches pliers, and whatever in a case that stays in the RV. A good charcoal or gas grill, tablecolths for picnic tables. Several various flashlights, extra batteries of all sizes. And MOST IMPORTANT, a Sense of Humor, and the wisdom of when it is needed.

RE: need new tires

I have TOYOs installed on the rears of our Class A, and are happy with them (so far).

RE: Coach battery replacement

Got mine at AutoWise, biggest deep cycle they had. They brought them out and installed them for me, no charge.
