RE: Syracuse NY April Camping

Try calling the Fairground they have camping sites, but it's cold so no water. Last time I checked it was $35 a night. If you are a Good Sam member there is a Camping World north of the fairgrounds where you can stay over night free.

RE: Boarder Crossing

I prefer Port Huron. Less traffic. A number of restaurants just before the Bluewater Bridge. Check online before going, US Customs and Canadian Border (use government sites for reliable info) In WNY there is also the Niagara Bridge Commission. They may have the same or similar for that crossing.

RE: Vortex II fans

Yes, I just finished installing onr on my new to me TT. Since the TT has a rear bath, I added a 12v on/off switch with a piot led for my backup camera

RE: Braking system required?

In NYS any trailer rated 2,000 lbs needs to have brakes (the last time I checked the NTDIT web site)

RE: Dump Station Etiquette???

Most dump stations have cut off the threaded end of the "rinse" hose, so you can't connect to your dump clean out connection. I believe it is to rinse the area when you finish .

RE: what material would work for this?

Try Google or Pinterest search " wall mounted headboard " for design / fabric.

RE: Who writes these headlines?

It's the same people the forced McD's to pit a warning on Coffee cups stating that they were hot, after they won a court case of some one that got their lap burned. This country is trying to "protect" people from the lack of common sense! IMHO

RE: Awning problem! All it does is click.

That clicking is the electric brake (in the awning motor assembly) kicking in, 12v releases the brake. If voltage is low the brake will not release.

RE: Who uses a pop-up canopy?

We had one with 4 legs until a big gust of wind caught it and threw it 40 ft. Breaking a part I can't find. So I looked around and saw a Gazelle 6 sided pop up. I talked with the owner and he said it was great. Easy up and very stable in the wind. It was a Clam Quick-Set Gazebo/Canopy $$$ I bought a Gazelle gazebo almost identical but cheaper. I've been happy with it.

RE: Heating Cost: Electric vs. Propane

Please remember exchange tanks usually don't have 20# in them! More like 15#.

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

I have invested only $28,000 over my total ownership of pickups! $2,300 for a well used '98 Silverado $12,000 for a lightly used '04 F-150 $13,700 for a new 2011 Silverado (only 48,000 miles). I feel very lucky, but I cannot afford another pickup in retirement!

RE: Aluminum or fiberglass trailer

Look for "azdel" backed fiberglas. Lance is one mfg. It is resin based, not wood.

RE: Surge protector

Search " Portable Generator open ground " here an rv.net. You should get many hits on what to do.

RE: Surge protector

There is an issue when using a Generator! You will need a special wired adapter to use with a generator! Make sure you do not get an Open Ground indication, you will need a floating ground plug. You should be looking at an EMS (Electrical Management System) which does a lot more than simple Surge protector. Yes, they are more expensive, but the value if your electrical system/components is very high.

RE: Suspension hardware

I replaced my suspension with brass bushings and whet bolts about 2 years ago. I also replaced the equalizers with Dexter EZ-Flex equalizer. Best thing I've done for the camper. It smooths out the ride and lessens the sway when trucks pass. The suspension kit was from E-Trailer.
