RE: Toilet Mystery

If the cap was missing, rainwater and/or melting snow will run down the vent and fill up the tank. No way is a 1-1/2 inch vent pipe is going to collect 30+ gallons of rain water.

RE: Mora CG or Kalaloch CG -- Olympia NP Length?????

Be aware of narrow bridge on 101 crossing the Hoh River. Don't want to meet a log truck on the bridge!!! I understand, but if logging trucks use the road a 5er should be OK.

RE: Mora CG or Kalaloch CG -- Olympia NP Length?????

3 miles south is South Beach CG where you'd have no problem in Olympic National park. I thought about South Beach but it is no reservations FCFS and I assumed in Mid-July it would be full. Does it fill up most of the time??????"

Mora CG or Kalaloch CG -- Olympia NP Length?????

We have a 36-foot 5th wheel so our overall length is probably 53 feet more or less I have not measured with the truck connected. This summer we wish to camp at Olympia national Park. The two campgrounds we are looking at either Mora CG or Kalaloch CG state that they are not really big rig friendly. The website,, states that we should consider the overall length of the trailer plus truck. Has anyone stayed at either of these two campgrounds and will we be able to fit in if we can find a 36 foot campsite?

RE: Avoiding Low clearance routes

Stay on interstate and "red" roads and you will not have any problems.

RE: Replace Mobley

I have not experienced any time limits on my Mobley. I use the Mobley without any time limits, but I am not often online for 2 hours at a time.

RE: Backup cam - not sure what to do with it

Has anyone used a WIRELESS backup camera with a 36 foot plus 5th wheel or does one need a WIRED system?

RE: Living in a Trailer

You have been given advice on proceeding slowly. Maybe but you also are not getting any younger. If you want the mobility and travel allowed with an RV you might want to proceed quickly. Only you know yourself. Don't make a choice that you are likely to regret. Have an Exit Plan ! ! !

RE: Living in a Trailer

When my wife died, I was face with much the same situation. I was living in Ohio and all my children and other family members were living in Tennessee. I recognize that if I got sick with cancer (like my wife) it would be a major problem for the children. They could not take a leave of absence to take care of me since they all had good jobs, and if I died unexpected, they would have problems disposing of the house and all the stuff I had collected over a number of years. My solution was to pretend I had died. The important pieces of furniture that I wanted to remain in the family I gave to my children the other items which had no sentimental value I sold or gave to goodwill. I sold the house and started full time in an RV. Since then, I have travel in all the states and from Newfoundland to Alaska it was the best decision I ever made. I’ve told the children if I get sick at some distance from Tennessee, I will drive the RV to my son’s house and park in the backyard for my last few weeks. If I die unexpectedly simply cremate my body and give the RV to goodwill or the Salvation Army.

RE: Laptop Stripped Screw ?????

Chances are it is not a Phillips screw but a small spline drive. Get a set of them to determine which one fits. I have tried a small spline and a Phillip's. I looked with a magnifier glass and what it once was it is rounded out now.

RE: Laptop Stripped Screw ?????

Usually you can get the edge of a razor blade under the screw and lift the screw while unscrewing it. Sorry, I was not clear. The Philips head is stripped not the threads.

Laptop Stripped Screw ?????

A number months ago I purchased an older HP EliteBook 8770w laptop computer. I would now like to upgrade the hard drive; however, I find that the security screw necessary to remove the back of the laptop is stripped. I am considering two options. I could epoxy or otherwise glue the appropriate small Philip’s screwdriver bit in the stripped screw head or I could attempt to drill out the screw. Drilling runs the risk of damaging something on the other side of the screw while epoxy may not be strong enough to remove the screw.

RE: Six-point leveling system -- reduce rocking

To reduce movement make some nice 3/4" plywood boxes as I made. The shorter the ram extends the more stable it is 24k setting on the 6 boxes. Note tires not touching the ground. Cummins12V98 How do you adjust the six-point system so that it "automatically" raises the RV past the 1st level point to take the weight off of the tires? Or do you do this manually?

Pickett CCC Memorial State Park, Jamestown, TN

This spring we are thinking about camping there. We have a 36 foot fifth wheel. Looks like only one site that is listed as 30 foot, all the others are smaller. Has anyone camped there? Will we fit since many campsites are measured to the "curb stop" and we can hang over in the back?

Six-point leveling system -- reduce rocking

We have a new to us 36-foot 5th wheel with a 6-point self-leveling stabilizer system. Our previous 5th wheel had manual stabilizing jacks equipped with the JT StrongArm stabilizers, and we really loved the strongarm stabilizers. When we had a travel trailer to reduce the rocking motion, we would manually crank up the stabilizing jacks to take some weight off of the springs and tires. I assume I could manually do much the same with the self-leveling 6-point system, but I have not figured out how yet. This anyone have real life experience with the JT strong-arm stabilizers mounted to a 6 point self-leveling system? Any other suggestions on reducing the rocking motion are very welcome.

RE: California to Maine Summer 2021

It looks to me like your plan is to rush to the East Coast to see historical sites. If so here are some of my thoughts. Depending on the size of your RV, camping at Cracker Barrel will be very tight Walmart Or a casino is a better choice If you only plan to sleep for the night. You have missed a large number of national parks. For example you can see the key elements of Yellowstone in a day. You can also spend a lifetime seeing the important elements of Yellowstone. Check with some senior citizens tour bus routing and see how they see an area of the country in a very short Amount of time.

RVParky trip planning software

For many years since I have a Garmin GPS I have used Garmin’s BaseCamp to plan my trips. Before basecamp I used Garmin’s MapSource. In a recent posting the original posting used to plan his trip. There are some features I like about RVPparky planning software, but I have been unable to figure out how to edit the routing. Is it possible to edit the route without putting a stop in? Any suggestions on an alternate trip planning software is welcome.

RE: Concerns About Going Full Time

Living in a camper in NY winters ????????. I have been fulltime since 2006, but spend the winter in the warm south. Total cost between $10,000 and $15,000 per year depending on how much gas I purchase.
