RE: Toilet Tissue...

As I remember, a student did the ultimate TP evaluation for her junior high school science project, Soaking it in water, shaking, etc., and determined that Angel Soft performed the best. I'll try to find a reference to it on this Forum?

RE: New 5er, fresh water

Bob, I do not know your specific coach, but as a general statement, almost any pump will be able to deliver water to the potable tank from the city water connection. All that extra valve does is to by-pass the pump and (typical) check valve part of the system and go right to the tank. Matt Good to know Matt. Thanks for the tip. I’m seeing pumps around 35 PSI to 65 PSI that should work well for this process A bucket to draw water from is also needed.

RE: Article - Best Campground in Every State

We've camped at Lone Fir Campground on the North Cross State Highway in WA Sate. It's a great and quiet spot. . . once we were the only campers there. We came early in the year when Highway 20 had just opened for the season.

RE: Toto tires

I'm very happy with my Toyo tires that replaced my Michelin tires with potential sidewall issues. They probably give a bit rougher ride, but that's OK. The manager at Les Schwab Tires came around the counter and shook my hand when I bought them.

RE: I hate roundabouts -- but maybe I am wrong

I love roundabouts. I travel through 3 in 6 miles on my way into town. One of them with 2 lanes has 30,000 vehicles per day. I just wish that people would use their turn signals. . . it is suggested in WA State, but not required. Its is required in Germany and Austria. I never travel beside a large truck or trailer in multi-lane roundabouts. . . I like to give them room. My most adventurous roundabout was in the UK, with 3 lanes and the steering wheel was on the wrong side. . . yikes. A fender ahead wins.

RE: Holding Tank Treatments and Your Advice on Lubricants

Most campers lubricate with beer, but some prefer wine or the hard stuff... ;) Yes, but it's so diluted, I'm not sure that it's effective as a lubricant?

RE: Holding Tank Treatments and Your Advice on Lubricants

All you need is water and enough of it and the Geo Method As for the Lubricants I have found that the the method described in This video does all you need. I have used both for years and everything has worked well with not one problem. This^^^^

RE: Leveling jacks

Doug Grainger gives the best information, perhaps he will join this thread. You should have the new tapered springs installed. I've been advised not to use WD-40, but to wash the extended jacks with soap and water, and perhaps use a bit of automatic transmission fluid, carefully wiped off. The right rear jack on my HWH 625 Series occasionally does not fully retract, or takes a very long time. I've actually driven the MH a bit to help it retract, and have resorted to "helping" it with a 2x4 pry bar. My alarm sounded for 1,100 miles once with the jacks retracted. It was a Friday afternoon, with no RV repair facilities available. I called Coach-Net and they put my in touch with HWH that could not help much, but I did get several calls from them trying to advise me where I could find the fuse to shut the alarm off. They asked me what day the HWH system was installed? I said that I had not idea. . . They said, then it could be anywhere. Good luck. I eventually had to install a new control unit (which I'm not sure that I needed?)

RE: Sewer smell

Make sure that your thru-the-roof vent are not clogged. Wasp nests are not on your side.

RE: suggestions for screen door with dog

Look for expanded metal sheets at hardware stores.

RE: Itasca class A needs accents repainted

That's also our same model and year motorhome. We just got it back from having the passenger side, front and rear caps and coves repainted. The clear coat had failed and needed to be redone. They think that the light grey color had been painted on a Friday, and the clear coat was not applied until Monday? Apparently exceeding the 12 hours recommended for applying the clear coat. It looks great now. It's hard to find good people to do the work now, it's very busy out there. They had it for 5 weeks and were able to fit it between other jobs. Roy Robinson in Marysville, WA did the work.

RE: Pt Townsend Coupeville Ferry Seattle Area

We like to camp at Fort Casey SP and watch the ferries come and go. I've watched them circle in the fog just offshore waiting for the fog to clear for more than 45 minutes. I have an app on my cell phone that allows me to track their position.

This is how the ride can be. The ferry skipper is amazing. Wild Ferry Landing

RE: Pt Townsend Coupeville Ferry Seattle Area

The 4 foot tide should not be a problem, the ferry is often not running at extreme low tides. Do not let them place you too close to the sidewalls at the front of the ferry. We could not turn the MH with our tail-swing to exit the ferry, and they needed to back up vehicles behind us, so the we could also back-up and make a more gentle turn. No one was happy!

RE: IH-5 through Seattle options?

I think that I-5 is the easiest. Be sure that you leave 2 lanes to your left when you see the sports stadiums on your left when entering Seattle. I've found that I-405 can be congested especially with toll only lanes on the left.

RE: Cottonwood Trees and their Seeds

We have a under floor heat-pump that collects cottonwood seeds. I pay my grand-daughters to remove them. . . there may be a bit of OCD involved?

RE: RV trip to Squim WA

Long drive to Sequim. Do you want most direct route, most interesting route, or? What do like to see and do?

RE: Supplemental brake locked up - at the wrong time.

My RoadMaster Braking System locked up while towing my CR-V on the Interstate. We were traveling at 55mph when I felt a tug and saw smoke coming from the tires of the CR-V. Everything stopped in a straight line in about 250 feet, and cars were able to swerve around us. Fortunately we were just at an exit with lots of room and I was able to stop there. I disconnected the system, inspected things, and continued driving to St George, Utah, when I finally disconnected the CR-V, felt the squared off tires, drove to a tire shop and replaced all 4 tires. After phone calls to RoadMaster, the installer, and tire shops, it appears that the rubber floor mat needed to be removed before hooking up the system. Apparently the braking system can shift its location when on a slippery system, and lock the brakes. I was never told this before, and the installer had left the mat in place when I towed the CR-V away. That was expensive!
