RE: Oregon to charge 25% more for out of state RV campers

Greed abounds. The campground that we stay at on a monthly basis (at a discounted rate) is dropping their monthly sites because they can make more money on nightlies and a full campground.Unlike that dirty rotten greedy park owner, I am sure you have passed on every chance you have had to increase your income. In retrospect that appears to be a bad decision on your part. Because if you had taken those opportunities to increase your income you could likely afford to pay that nightly rate and still stay for a month. It has nothing to do with my ability to afford it for a month. For us, the price now just exceeds the value/experience of staying there but I appreciate your concern for my finances.

RE: Exterior Caulking

The Heartland factory used silicone on my Big Country. It didn't last very long. I am replacing small sections at a time as they fail with Lexel.

RE: Meatloaf

Definitely. Have made it in a cast iron dutch oven and it's definitely a favorite around here. Try it with some smoke introduced as described by OP. You may never go back.

RE: Use of FLEX-SEAL (revisited)

^Thats cool! Is it softer like plasti dip or harder like Bedliner? Closer to tool dip than bedliner. The smooth, glossy finish on my transom panels makes cleaning fish blood and such a breeze.

RE: Use of FLEX-SEAL (revisited)

The transom panels on my boat were carpeted and the sun rotted the carpet out. I made new panels and did a couple coats of Flex Seal. It has worked great for going on 5 years now.

RE: black water tank treatments

I find that more times than not, the smell in the coach is from the kitchen gray tank when emptied due to rotting food particles. I now add treatment to that tank as well.

RE: "Use Both Lanes Until Merge Point"

When people have opportunities to move over and they don’t and speed past to the end THAT is the problem. When I pulled in like most have and are in the thru lane we are bumper to bumper near the end. Why should I hit my brakes to let someone in that clearly does not think they should wait like everyone else???I've had people try to squeeze past me when we are right at the cones. Now I straddle the line between the lanes a good 100 yards before the pinch point.

RE: Rusty grille - How to avoid

For me, the heavy scrap and clean is before each use. Preheat the grill on high and stuff comes off easily, no rust.

Resale prices

Online value sites don’t seem to be anywhere close to current used sale pricing so how does one figure current market value?

RE: giving it up

After being notified of next seasons rates, I might be right behind you!

RE: 3rd AC

We have a portable 14000 inverter LG in our condo master bedroom ,280 sq ft.IT is very quiet and will freeze you out in a matter of minutes.IT would be a simple install and would be my choice at 650$. in Canada. ON our 40 ft Landmark i played with the ducting to push more air to the Living area and closed the door to the upper level,stayed decent at 100 degrees So blocking some vents in the bedroom made the living space bearable?

RE: 3rd AC

I have the same issue with 2 AC's not doing the job. I use a free standing fan in the living room and am thinking about trying one of the free standing AC units that I see advertised for around $450.

RE: Timbrem or Sumos on F150

IMO, leaving the gap creates the SLAM effect. When I used something similar with my cabover camper, I had the block just barely engaged with the spring. When fully loaded, the gap goes away before you hit the road, so it's already carrying some weight and generally not slamming with either option. When running empty, they engage only when you hit a bump (ie: the gap is used up): - Timbrens apply full resistance as soon as they touch. X lbs/inch of compression. - Sumo gradually increases resistance after they touch Y lbs/inch/inch So all else being equal, the sumo will apply far less for the first inch of compression but will quickly ramp up as compression increases creating a smoother feel as they engage. If you take away the gap with Timbrens while running empty, it will give a rough (but not slamming) ride as the resistance is enough in that they lift the empty bed rather than compress the springs & timbrens. Airbags get around this by adjusting the pressure to the load but they are more complex and prone to failure. Yes, no gap when loaded should be the idea, not running empty.

RE: How does a longer shank affect backing?

What do you think about putting a front hitch on?

RE: RV plywood cleaning stains and repair

Sounds like a lot of you don't realize what the carpenters that built your house did/spilled on the subfloor before putting the flooring down. BTW, go with a vinyl plank and you will be very happy. Vinyl plank floorings such as Pergo are very heavy. I would go with sheet vinyl or even carpeting. I have both. The sheet flooring is perfectly useable, light weight and protective. I have a continuous piece of indoor/outdoor carpeting on top. Periodically I pull out the carpet and wash it. Eventually I will replace it with another piece and use the existing as a template for cutting. Home center, indoor/outdoor carpeting is quite inexpensive. I like the carpeting so I can walk barefoot after a day in hiking boots. It adds to the warmth in cold weather and is a lot better for the night time bathroom trip. X2! Pergo is heavy and when they say "engineered" they really are covering up the fact that the heart of it is made up of "MDF" or Medium Density Fiber board, basically saw dust and glue pressed together under high pressure. MDF is heavy and one of the major faults of it is when moisture does get past the outside vinyl wrap, it will expand more than twice it's original size and when it dries out, will never go back to original size. Straight vinyl sheet flooring on the other hand is moisture proof, mud proof, dirt proof, very easy to clean and extremely low cost. We removed all carpeting and replaced with stick on vinyl tiles, then for the comfort of carpet we use small rubber backed throw rugs in strategic places that are easy and cheap to replace when worn or damaged. Makes sweeping and mopping quick and easy. Vinyl is just that, vinyl, not sawdust.

RE: Little red Honda pellet grill

The Green Mountain Grill Trek pellet grill runs DC instead of AC. Very low power usage, even on long cooks. A Green Mountain Davey Crockett will run on DC so no need for a generator there the same gril, new naming structure for GMG. Steve They got smart and got rid of the spring legs.

RE: Little red Honda pellet grill

Pellet grill can be hooked to a 12v battery. One can run the generator later or at anytime to recharge battery if really concerned about it.
