Strange sounds from the kitchen sink

Hey All, Help me out here. I am sitting in the RV doing some work and all of a sudden, I hear a gurgling sound from the kitchen sink. I first think a water line must of broke. I check everything and all is ok. That was weird. We have been set up here for a few days with full hook ups. The black tank value is closed and the grey is open. I checked my vents and everything is ok. It stopped after a few minutes but there was a smell of sewer. I was perplexed. After thinking about it I am wondering if someone up stream from me dumped their black tank and the force of the fluids pulled the air from my drain pipe. It sounds kind of strange but I can’t think of any other explanation. Has this ever happened to anyone else? Look forward to your help solving this mystery. Thanks as always, Phil

Walmart overnight and running the generator

When you overnight at a Walmart or similar place and you are in the south or anywhere where it is hot all night long do you run your generator all night so you can use the air conditioner? We are traveling across country in a few days from Florida. We will be going across the south and through Texas. We are planning to stay at RV parks but if we have any issues finding a place Walmart or similar place is a possible option. We have only Wally World camped a couple of times but that was in the mountains where the temps cooled at night. Thanks for the input. Phil

RE: Florida to Wyoming travel concerns

Thanks to all that have replied. We will go slow and easy. We have add a few days to travel time in case we have to alter our plans. I will report back when we get to Wyoming. Stay safe everyone.

Florida to Wyoming travel concerns

Hi Everyone, We are leaving next Saturday for a 2-month trip. We are heading west form Florida to spend a week in Colorado and then the month of august in Wyoming. I am a little nervous about traveling to our destinations. I feel once we are there, we will be fine. We will be in a place that has less total case of the virus than our area is creating in a day. My questions are for those of you who are currently or recently traveled. How were the travel days? Did you have any problems finding open and available RV parks? Did you plan stops differently? Did you make reservations for each night or just wing it? What was your experience checking in at campgrounds? Did you feel comfortable and safe at the campground? Did you have any problems getting Fuel? Once we are in for the night, we don’t plan on doing much. Maybe a walk around the park and relaxing. That is really no different than our normal travel days. We are in a motorhome and fully self-contained so no concerns about public bathrooms. That is one of the good things about RVing. Our route takes us across Texas. There has been a big surge of cases there and I am wondering if this is the best way to go? I could go further north and take I-40 across missing most of Texas. I look forward to hearing what you all have to say and have experience during your recent travels. As always thank you and safe travels. Phil

Water in fuel light came on then off

Hi Everyone, Coming home this weekend from Panama City Fl. we drove through serious rain the whole way. We even had to detour off I-10 due to flooding. It was rain from tropical storm Cristobal. Everything was fine until about 20 miles from home when the (water in fuel) light came on. I carefully kept going as there was no sign of anything wrong. The RV ran fine. The speed was the same, no sputter or hesitation. After about 5-10 minutes the light went out. We drove the rest of the way home without any problem. When we got home, I restarted the RV and no warning light came on. Yesterday I did the same and no warnings. I drained about ½ a cup of fuel from the Fuel /water separator and I did not see any obvious water in the fuel. I did some reading on this form and others and this seems to have happened to many during HEAVY rain. The sensor some how gets wet and the light comes on. I have a Cummins ISB 5.9 engine. If this has happened to anyone else, I would like to here your experience. Is there any thing I should be concerned about in the future? I could not find the sensor on the F/W separator. If anyone know where it is on my motor, I was thinking of using some dielectric grease on it to help prevent this from happening As always, I appreciate the help and comments. Phil

I am looking for Vinyl Stripping

Hi Everyone, I am hoping that someone can help me with finding some vinyl stripping for the front of my motorhome. I need about 12 feet of two different widths. 8 inch wide x 12 feet long and 12 inch wide x 12 feet long for the front of the RV. If anyone knows of a place to purchase some please let me know. The only places I have found you have to get a roll of around a 100’ for a lot of money. I appreciate the help, Phil

RE: Route into Buena Vista Co. then to Wy.

Yes, I have heard about the rafting. We have done a lot of that in other parts of the country. I don't think I want to spend several hours that close to other people so we are going to pass on that kind of stuff. We need to keep our distance due to health reasons. We will do some hiking and enjoy the area. We will definitely check out some of the drives you suggested. Thnaks

RE: Route into Buena Vista Co. then to Wy.

Thank you Everyone, Great information. I am thinking I will take Rt. 69 to U.S. 50 to U.S.285 into Buena Vista. It sounds like U.S. 24 to I-70 is a reasonable route out. Then either 131 to 40 to 13 or follow 1-70 to Rifle and up 13 there. I did do a couple of passes last year heading into Jackson area. I had to gear down to 3rd a couple of times. I even had to start from a dead stop half way up on one thanks to a couple of mountain goats having a snack in the middle of the road. So, like all climbs, gear down, RPM up to 2-2200, slow and steady and exhaust brake on heading down in a low gear. Should be fun and a little exciting. When in BV we will be doing day trips in the toad visiting many of the places you all have mentioned. We will avoid crowds for obvious reasons. We prefer that anyway. We will do some hiking and just enjoy the area. We stay flexible on activities so we can see what the area offers and what looks interesting to us. I will certainly appreciate any further information about driving and the area in general. Phil

Route into Buena Vista Co. then to Wy.

Hello Everyone, I hope everybody is doing well in these (different) times we now live in. After some consideration we have decided to move forward with our summer plans. We have reserved a spot in Wyoming for the month of August near Jackson. On the way we would like to visit the area around Buena Vista Colorado. There are several RV parks in the area and we will be making reservations today. Any opinions on a park to stay at would be a help. This post is to get information about the route. I will be coming in from the southeast, and off I-25. Google calls for getting off at route 69 and follow that to U.S. 50 and U.S. 285. I am wondering how that road is and what I can expect for climbs.Would it be better (Easier) to go to Pueblo and take U.S. 50 in to B.V. I imagine there will be some climbing either way but I would prefer the easiest route. After Buena Vista we will making our way north to Wyoming. What is a good road to follow to end up on I-80 some where between say Rawlins and Green River? Google shows U.S. 24 to I-70 to RT. 131 U.S. 24 looks very mountainous. I have never travelled this area and as I said before would want to avoid long steep climbs and descents if possible. I am not apposed to back tracking to I-25 if that is the easier softer way. That being said it is always fun to see new areas on the journey. My RV is a 2001 36’ Monaco Knight. It only has a 5.9 Cummins so big hills slow us pretty good as I am also towing a Hyundai Tucson on a dolly. So flat roads are my friend. ?? As always, I do appreciate any and all information to help with making the best travel plans. I hope everyone has a safe and fun summer traveling in your RV. Thanks, Phil

RE: Tire pressure

Yup, That's what I used. Thanks to all

Tire pressure

HI, I have Goodyear G661 HSA 255/70 R/22.5 load range H tires. I'm trying to find the right pressure. My steer tire have 4210# and 3820# rear on each of the 4 tires. This comes from the cat scale. I can't find my tire chart. I found a couple of others similar and I have come up with 85# for the front and 80# for the rears. I know some fill to max but I also have learned that is not the right thing to do. If anyone knows where I can find a inflation guide or the correct pressure I would appreciate it. Thanks as always

RE: Extension cords

Thanks for all the replies. I may go with the extension cord. If I do I will probable go with a 10/2. My daughter did the measuring and it came up 97'. I have 50' I don't think she took in the indoor measure to the plug and maybe having to go under the RV. That is about 8-9' So all told I may have a 120' run. I need about another 70' I hate to buy a 50' cord and be 5' short (Story of my life)

Extension cords

Hi All, We are going to our daughters for Christmas (Panama City Fl.) in the motorhome. We will mainly be sleeping in the coach. I will have to park about a 100' from the house. I want to plug into the house (probable 15 amp) My RV is 50 amp and I have a 25' cord. I also have a 25' 30 Amp extension cord. So I need another 50'. I am thinking of making a 50' extension from exterior romex (12/2) wire with a 30 amp plug on one end a standard house hold plug on the other end. This will be cheaper than buying another 50' of RV cord. Way cheaper. I am aware that I will only have limited power, but we only will be running a few lights and maybe the TV a bit. I want to avoid using the generator. Any thoughts or other ideas. Thanks as always
