RE: ??? Full Body RV Re-Paint Job, 15 yrs old, its time ???

Look at a wrap instead of painting. Interesting suggestion

RE: RV Magazine Subscription

I've had qualms about renewing Trailer Life. Most issues now are less than 60 pages. Eliminate the advertising and we're down to what? 20 pages. It comes. I blow through the entire issue in about 30 minutes. Have I wasted $18/year on other things with less value? Probably. But the articles are repetitive and I find I have less and less interest in 15,000 lb campers at close to $50,000. Print media in the form of magazines and newspapers died over 10 years ago. A few niches still hang on. Too bad because I enjoy reading both.

RE: Is it a sin to modify an antique cast iron griddle?

I understand the feeling of responsibility to preserve something. One question in my mind would be, can you make it beautiful, if you change it? Its a chunk of metal and nothing more. It does not have to be "beautiful" to grill up a pancake but it does need to fit on the stove. ^^This^^ It belong to you so you should do as you please. If it doesn't fit on your stove or grill you're not going to use it so there would be not point in even having it. Grind away! X2. There's nothing magical about cast iron regardless of the brand name. Modify it to your liking.

RE: DEF Math

The owner's manual says my truck has a 5.5 gal DEF tank. I waited until I was down to 1/4 on the gauge, just above the red zone, and added a 2.5 gal box of Blue DEF from Advance Auto. Now the gauge reads FULL to the top. So the gauge must be set to give you a long warning zone to keep you out of limp mode. This is only my 2nd time adding DEF so just getting used to all of this. Also interesting is that the DEF I got said "Blue DEF" but the Peak brand is gone, and so is the manufacture date. No date or code of any kind on the box or the container so no way to know how old it is. With tax it was $15 for 2.5 gals, so $6/gal. Probably last time I'm buying it at Advance. $7.88 in my area and that's all I use. The pump Def is cheaper but not convenient in my area. The Walmart house brand is about $9 and it is just a generic chemical that most people seem to think makes all brands equal.

Forest River Cardinal and Cedar Creek Question

Are the Forest River Cardinal and Forest River Cedar Creek 5ers the same trailer with different decals?

RE: Newbie needs help with WiFi!

We've never been in a campground that had the bandwidth to allow streaming video Maybe they exist. Plus when everyone logs on it gets even slower. Sufficient bandwidth is expensive and most campgrounds don't want to pay.

RE: Changing refrigerator cooling unit...New or Refurbished??

The Amish units have gotten a lot of praise here. There's one in particular that's supposed to be the best, can't remember the name but others will chime in. You said you're handy and that's great. It's not rocket science

RE: Best mouse trap?

Please do not use poison. Eating a poisoned rodent is one of the main causes of death for raptor-type birds. It might also be found by a dog or cat who is someone's loved pet. I prefer the snap traps. Possibly the mice are long gone. Just keep an eye out. X2 because as noted you potentially introduce a poisoned mouse into the food chain

RE: Best mouse trap?

I prefer the Tomcat brand snap traps. Foolproof and easy to set

RE: No 3/4 ton trucks.

Why not just order what you want? Or have the dealer do a search and find you want you want at another dealer. Even if out of state.

RE: Cabinet door material

You can find something similar in the form of a pet guard for a patio sliding screen and cut it to size

RE: Not Utilizing RV Parks or Boondocking

A Walmart parking lot would be the last place I would overnight. Moderator comment: Sorry, I was replying to your post and hit "edit" instead of "quote". I apologize. Barney

RE: Leaf springs new best brand triple axle advice

Any decent mechanic can do this job. You dont need a "trailer" repair shop. In fact some of those so called Trailer/RV repair shops are terrible. There's nothing magical about trailer leaf springs. Heck, I've even done the complete swap, HD equalizers, shackles, leaf springs etc myself. A good trusted mechanic is a valuable thing.

RE: General 5th Wheel Brand Question

I did a lot of research before buying our 2020 Cedar Creek Silverback. Things like; wall construction, frame construction, suspension, interior components, solar, toppers, real ducted air, slide mechanisms, Insulation/R value, fully enclosed and heated compartments and floor, etc etc. I bought our FW for more of what you can't see than what you can. About 6 mos with it and very happy with no issues to speak of. We paid a little more, but you get what you pay for. Thanks for the info

General 5th Wheel Brand Question

How does Forest River's Cedar Creek compare to the Keystone Montana? I know it's a subjective question but any input would be appreciated. We're looking at both brands.

RE: Tire Valve Stem Cracking

If you're running external TPMS sensors metal stems are required.
