RE: New to RVing and In Need Of Advice! :)

Stir Crazy Wrote: so I always tell people now if they are planning on buying both.. get the rv first, then find a truck to tow it. unless you are going to go out and buy a 1 tone dually diesel.. then you aren't limited to much. I will add to this. Once you decide you like RV'ing. Get that one ton dually diesel and be done with it. Otherwise you will be playing the upgrade game the entire time. Most don't realize the cost of the trucks is relatively equal. A 1/2 ton gasser cost the same as a 3/4 gasser. Once you decide to go diesel a 3/4 diesel cost the same as a 1 ton dually. You must just decide what truck you want. If you are in it for the long haul get the 1 ton diesel dually and be done with it.

RE: Water pump sucking air

Can you just stick a new hose from the pump into the tank and see if it works?

RE: Bad Experience at Little Dealer Service Department

I think you need to take a deep breath and talk to the RV Dealer's general manager or owner. I would not let one poor employee run me off of a place that I otherwise would patronize.

RE: What happens when you overfill tanks.....

0-25 minutes is way too long to be at the dump station if there is a line:M If there is a line there should be no back flushing at all! No line no problem but if someone is waiting it is not time to get tanks squeaky clean. I don't understand the obsession with spotless tanks. You're just going to fill it with poo all over again!

RE: towing with a Tesla

In the same way 26 gallon fuel tanks are a deal breaker when towing. Stopping every 2 hours to charge would also be a deal breaker. Sure I could deal with it for a one time trip, but being limited to 2 hour travel intervals would not be practical for me.

RE: What happens when you overfill tanks.....

All you need is a twist on drain valve. Permanently attached it and get rid of drain cap altogether. With valve closed and both tanks open tanks will equalize and you can allow black tank to fill with some excess grey water,232_.jpg

RE: Is it better to be hooked to short power in storage? or not?

I have kept my RV's plugged in 24/7/365 for 20 plus years with no ill efects

RE: New RV Park, Idaho Falls, ID.

While I did not watch the video. I did see a picture of the sites. Didn't seem that extravagant to me. The sites are paved with fire pits and a few rocks. I do not consider that over the top.

RE: New RV Park, Idaho Falls, ID.

I think everyone needs to consider what is cost to develop a park. The infrastructure and environmental cost are daunting. Now we want fully grown trees an a wooded atmosphere on day one! Of course we want it all, including full hook ups for $50.00 or less a night I think we need to adjust our expectations. By the way if I were in the area the new place is certainly something I would check out and give it a try at least once.

RE: Florida State Park Reservation window changes

Keeping people out of the CG's and making life hard on Disney is not good policy for a state where tourism is its number one industry. This policy is not going keep people out of campgrounds. There are more than enough year round Florida residents to fill them. Year round Florida residents who have been pulling their hair out for years trying to get reservations in their own park system, that are hoarded and gamed by Snowbirds. I think its a step in the right direction and would like to see other state park systems adopt such policies. As far as Disney, who cares. Its the most overated and overpriced attraction in the Orlando area. It's great however if you like spending $150.00 for lunch for a family of 4 and standing in lines for hours a day. That about kills our winter visits to FL. It's been fun while it lasted. TX here we come. Hasta luego y buena suerte. You don't get it. Those tourism and Disney Dollars are what keeps Florida's economy moving. Disney is not the money generating machine because of the locals. Disney is a nationwide and world wide destination. Keeping those dollars out of Florida cannot be good for the local economy or local jobs. It may take time but eventually someone will figure it out when the lack of visitors shows up on the bottom line.

RE: Florida State Park Reservation window changes

I'll take what I can get but wish they would address the cancelation policy which would stop most of the abuse... Increase the cost to cancel to fifty percent of the reservation fee and require the whole reservation to be canceled.... This is a step in the right direction. Here in Maryland, PA and DE it's tough if not impossible to get a spot unless you plan 6-8 months out and we are not a big tourism state. However drive through the Parks and you'll see empty sites.

RE: Picking out good camping chairs

I buy a lot from Amazon. But it is more about the convenience than the price. I know I can trust Amazon to be convenient,secure, trustworthy and generally at a competitive price. Price alone is not the determining factor.

RE: Fuel Ecomony - Towing

Thanks to all for your replies. The concern with fuel economy is not cost, but range. Trying to gain some confidence that a new gas 3/4 ton (probably Ford or GM) and leaning toward a Silverado w/ 6.6L and 3.73 rear end will go farther on a 34 gallon (or so) tank than the current truck takes me on a 25 gallon tank. Fuel range is a real issue that is often overlooked and not considered.

RE: 38 gallon honey wagon?

I can agree once you figure out your tank capacities and your needs you learn when you will need the tote. I have learned how to equalize my tanks and let the black tank fill with some grey water. This back filling technique ultimately gives me more grey tank capacity and allows me to leave the tote at home. I don't use my tote as much as I used to simply because I have learned more about my needs and my tank capacity. However if I'm at a non sewer site for more than 6 days, I will bring the tote. I generally never take quick showers or attempt to curtail my water use.

RE: Goodbye CH751 key!

Once I realized there was little structural integrity to the door, lock and latch. I was no longer concerned with locking the storage compartments. The lock and latch are really just for show, they won't keep the bad guys out. I'm more concerned with damage to the doors and body of RV vs. losing my camping stuff

RE: 38 gallon honey wagon?

With my 40 gallon grey tank I can go 3-4 days before I need to dump my tank without any water conservation. My galley drains into a separate grey tank so I actually have 80 gallon grey capacity. The 42 gallon Barker tote allows me to fully dump my 40 gallon grey every 3-4 days as needed. I have never stayed anywhere long enough to fill my 40 gallon black tank

RE: 38 gallon honey wagon?

I have a 42 gallon Barker tote. It is manageable you pull it like a wagon. You do not have to actually pick it up and carry it. It connects to your hitch ball and you tow it to the dump station.

RE: Tires on a 5th wheel and aggravation

Ultimately that is the problem! How can a brand new camper with brand new tires possibly need all of its' tires replaced? An experienced RV'er knows they send them out brand new from the factory with with junk tires. A rookie RV'er finds out the hard way. Unfortunately once upon a time we were all rookies.
