RE: X Member of Good Sam Roadside Assistance

Somebody must be an agent in search of clients. If you believe the post, I know of some good salt water dockage in Kansas you might be interested in.

RE: Ooops…..

We all have memories of painful mistakes. Painful as memories, not from injuries. We were hooking up one day and a neighbor came by to chat and I lost my situational awareness. Found it again when I could not go any further. Downhill. Turns out I never raised the tongue jack and plowed a 50 foot trench through the lawn and what stopped me was the jack hitting the sidewalk. Also broke three irrigation lines that had been run the day before. Backed up, raised the jack and off we went after turning the sprinkler system off. Since that day, if someone interrupts me, I stop and when the interruption is over I start over with whatever procedure is being performed. Thus , I don't get upset and the interruption is not a big deal.

RE: Takes guts to post video like this.

There is a LOT more to learn from that video than to use truck stops and being cognizant of tail swing. Sure is! Seems he doesn't know a few things. Learn height of rig Don't go under trees Learn how long the rig is And lastly, don't try to convince me ebikes are the same as regular bikes.

Been to some that were missed for quite a few years.

RE: Suspension Help Needed

Galloping Gertie syndrome. Mostly occurs on concrete highways built over slightly unstable ground. It happens with tt's also. Meant to pack down lunch so you have room for those home made cookies you brought with you.

RE: What's the best way to get RV anti-freeze out of system.

The good news is that the pink stuff you used is non toxic and will eventually become so diluted it will not be noticeable! I no longer use antifreeze ,I just drain everything and blow the lines out with compressed air! A compact tire inflator works fine ! I have used the same method to clear our Lawn sprinkler system and drain the water from our home plumbing when taking a winter vacation! ^^^^^x2 If you are methodical and get each system blown out, dewinterizing just entails putting the caps on the low point drains, closing the fresh water tank drain, replacing the plug/anode in the water heater and running the water in the hot and cold lines until they run without sputtering. If you use the fresh tank for drinking you may want to sanitize it.

RE: Where to sell RV items we've upgraded from

Irv2 has a good classified section.

RE: Condensation pan is not draining?

There are cheap little plugs that you can put in the end of the hose to prevent insects from using it. Any rv parts dealer will have them.

RE: Storing/Transporting your Waste Storage Tote Along

Some will say I am looking for trouble and being foolish but I transport my 35 pound tote on the ladder. It has hooks to grab a rung and I strap it on so there is no play possible. My thought is that the ladder is supposedly rated for 250 but I would trust it for 35. I would never trust it for what it is rated for.

RE: High Pressure Propane Outlet

If the regulator on the stove is not an integral part you could have just removed it and put a quick disconnect on it. Did that for the Webber Q. The regulator is now fitted with a quick disconnect that mates with the Webber. Best of both worlds now.

RE: Spiders

Another vote for home defense. We do the landing gear and inside all the base cabinets and the pass thru storage. It may not solve all your problems as most spiders get in on your clothes. Walk thru a web and there could be a spider on the end of it. Maybe you can convince your gf that spiders get rid of the other bugs.

RE: I-95 rest area parking for RV

A nap is one thing but 6 to 7 hours is a whole different story. First, you will have big rigs pulling in and out on each side of you and that will limit how much sleep you get. If the limit is 3 hours, you might be able to squeeze 4 out of it but do realize that 95 is a heavily patrolled road by various entities. Why not just make it relaxing and overnight in one of the many campgrounds that line the route. Safer and way more civilized. The over the road guys do not stay long. If the wheels are not turning they are not making money.

RE: Slow leak

Had a similar issue in a car tire. Lost 10 pounds over three months. Every three months. Nobody could find it. Had the tire removed so I could spray the interior part of the rim with urethane in case it was porous. Took off the valve stem -metal with a tpms sensor- and found a very fine corrosion line going between the wheel and the rubber part of the valve. Cleaned the valve and rim and put it back together without spraying. Four years and no air loss. We had lived where a lot of salt was used. Now the only salt is on the food. Annual average snowfall went from 93 inches to .05 inches a year.

If you can buy one, mpg won't matter.

RE: Train vs Motorhome

Why is it that so many vehicles run fine until they get on tracks then decide to stall? Are the aliens playing games with us?

RE: starcraft hybrid canvas fall out

Did you also find a few lengths of round plastic that are about the length of the aluminum channel that the canvas goes into? If you did, insert that into the part that goes in the channel. Taking it out makes it easier to get the canvas out. The plastic would be about 3 to 4 mm in diameter.

RE: The Bowlus is Back

If it was brown it would be a bolus. At those prices it will even have Airstream devotees choking.

RE: Getting started with sway control

When we had our 28ft TT I towed it with a Reese Dual Cam. then I got an Excursion and a 35ft TT and swapped over the Dual Cam with new heavier bars. I wouldn't tow with anything but the Reese DC. in my opinion the only thing above it are the Hensley Arrow, Pro Pride. X2^ Been using a DC since 2004 and the only white knuckles towing were from idiots on the road and not from sway. A little trickier to set up for optimum performance but once it is it is an easy hitch to use.
