RE: How to Clean Underbelly of TT After Removing Tape

I recently had to do some work that required cutting the coroplast. The dealer had done some taping before I took posession of the camper, and this is what he used: Tape It had held up well for 10 years, so I bought the same and used it. I cleaned the coroplast with rubbing alcohol and used a little heat from a heat gun. It sealed up well.

RE: What % Of Alcohol Does Your State Have?

There may be something to the spiking mentioned above. I have a flex fuel truck, which has the ability to monitor alcohol content in fuel. I do occasionally check to see how much a tankful contains. I live in a E-10 state (E-85 is sold in separate pumps). The worst I've seen is 16.5% from a Sam's Club station, which gets their gas from Flying J/Pilot marked tanker trucks. From most other stations I read 9.8%. I did discuss this with a tanker truck driver, and he said it is possible that the last tankfull was E-85, and the driver didn't dump it all, refueled with E-10 and got a higher alcohol content.

RE: 3d printed water fill adaptor

Yes, the one on the right looks like the cap that screws on the filler.

RE: 3d printed water fill adaptor

I wish I knew correct terminology, it would make a response much easier. I tried the one 2112 showed above, but it wouldn't work on my fill hatch without modification. My camper uses a hatch that looks like this one: Clicky Taking material off of the portion labeled in red didn't help. I finally chalked the locking portion of the hatch on the camper and put the adapter against it. It appeared that the locking flange on the adapter was too close to the cap of the adapter (sorry again for poor terminology). I took a brass wire brush in a dremel and removed some of the inside of the locking flange, and was able to get it to go on. I can't test it yet as it is too cold here to be dealing with water and hoses, but I think it's going to work.

RE: 3d printed water fill adaptor

So, are you interested in printing one for me?;)

RE: 3d printed water fill adaptor

NICE FIND, I would change it to be a 90deg for the water hose. On the first page of this thread, a picture shows a 90 deg adapter being used, which is what I plan to use if I can get one of these made that actually works.

RE: 3d printed water fill adaptor

He ended up printing a few and then remodeling the design. I forget why he said he was doing it. But here's the final product that he made and sent to me: width=400 width=400 His remodeled version has a bit of slop on each connection (camper side and hose fitting). We're talking about him tweaking it to fit a little tighter. But, thank you so much for the design/idea. This thing is great! Doug, As this thread was referenced in a new, recent thread, I thought I would bring it back from the dead to ask if you and your friend did tweak it for a better fit. I had the original design printed locally by the library, and it didn't fit at all. I don't know much about 3d printing, but it looked like the piece they made me didn't come off of a quality printer. I would like to have someone make one for me, but wanted to check to see if a newer design was available. Thanks

RE: Figuring Mileages

I find the Good Sam Trip Planner to be real helpful. It hasn't let me down yet. I also use Google Maps as a reference. Just a note for Good Sam Trip Planner- you really need to double check its route selection. I made a trip from Ohio to NC, and Trip Planner took me through the "Tail of the Dragon". I made the mistake of not double checking the route before taking off. I made it OK with my 26' trailer, but it's not a trip I want to make again.

RE: Garmin Basecamp Problems

There may be other good tutorials out there, but I went through this guy's youtube videos and found them helpful. If you have the time, start at the beginning (how to set things up) and progress through the rest. Garmin BaseCamp

RE: From whom does Rockwood get their tank heaters

My 2011 Rockwood does have the Ultraheat tank heaters from the factory.

RE: Use it or Lose it

Sometimes I think I'm some sort of freak. :B ...says the talking horse :B I am not quite as "seasoned" as you, but I realized a few years ago that I don't know any old people.

RE: Best route

First, let me state that I have not driven this route. I did check on Good Sam's Trip Planner to see what it recommends. It shows taking I-75 through Cincy to I-74 NW to I-275 NE to Rt. 27. Again, I don't know how good this route would be. You would think that Trip Planner knowing that we are in an rv (mine is set up for 10' 8" high travel trailer) would plan a good route. I did have one experience where Trip Planner took me through the Tail of the Dragon in TN on my way to NC. That was one to write home about ;) Hope you have a good trip.

RE: 2021 No Bo 19.5 bent axle

Both big rig trailer repair shops I mentioned did rubber torsion axle service of all sizes. Torsion axles have other parts that aren't rubber. However the OP didn't say the trailer was squatting more now. Jimnlin, would you mind naming the big rig trailer repair shops that will work on torsion axles? I'm a long way from OK, but might work a trip that way if they can work on mine. I have 1 wheel scrubbing a tire, and would like to get it fixed if I can. Thanks

RE: Help planning trip to include Delaware

Just went there this July. We did WV,VA,DE, MD and DC. Delaware was our favorite. Best to see and do is Rehobooth beach. and the state park right there has a very nice beach at the cape. Maybe take the ferry over to Cape May NJ. I just made our reservations for a few days at Delaware Seashore State Park (Rehoboth Beach). Thanks again to all who responded. We're looking forward to the trip.

RE: Help planning trip to include Delaware

I would be going up through eastern Pa until I got on I-84 east into Conn. Unless you enjoy endless NYC all the way from Wilmington into Conn. Much easier drive even if it is longer. I-476 to I-84? I DO NOT enjoy big city traffic. I'm getting much too old.

RE: Help planning trip to include Delaware

What will you be driving thru Connecticut? RT-15 is the Merritt Parkway and NO trailers or motorhomes are allowed! It is a 1930's scenic parkway with some quaint bridges that can trim the top of your camper for you. I suggest that you consider taking I-287 up through northern New Jersey to the New York Thruway north to I-84 at Newburg. Then take I-84 east across the Hudson River and on into Connecticut. Check out the tolls before committing to any particular route. It is my understanding that the George Washington Bridge is crazy expensive. I have not checked it lately but I expect the Mario Cuomo Bridge (previously called the Tappan Zee Bridge) is likely to be more pricey than the Newburg Beacon Bridge for crossing the Hudson River. Good catch. Thank you. I was using Google maps for planning purposes and did not double check with something that understands how tall a travel trailer can be. If I follow the route you suggested, will that not keep me off of any of the expensive bridges? Thanks again.

RE: Help planning trip to include Delaware

Thanks to all who have responded. After researching some of the suggestions given here, I think we will find enough to do in DE to give it a couple of days instead of a drive through. I am looking at coming across on I-70, into DE on Rt. 50 and staying in the Lewes area perhaps at Henlopen State Park. Then continuing on the trip to central CT up Rt 1 to I-295/NJ turnpike, around NYC on I-287 then on Rt 15. Does this seem doable to those of you who know this area? This should perhaps be in the routes forum, but I started here, so will continue the discussion if the moderators permit. Again, thank you to all who respond.

Help planning trip to include Delaware

This is a little off the wall, but the dw and I are trying to get into each of the 50 states before our time here on earth is over. One of the few we have not been in is Delaware. We live in northern Ohio and plan to visit some friends in central CT this fall. I've been looking at the map trying to find a decent way to incorporate DE into the route. We don't want to just make the drive to make the drive, but would like to find some things to do or see along the way. I am hoping some of you with experience in the area will have some suggestions. We don't necessarily need to camp in the state (we did not in Hawaii), but just driving in is sufficient. TIA
