RE: Southeast Texas to the Smoky Mountains

Shallow Creek RV Park near Gladewater, TX is just north of I-20 Exit 583 on HWY 135. Voted best RV Park in East Texas and is a very nice place

RE: Maintaining air gap in new Atwood water heater

An easy way to re establish the air gap is by injecting air into the water line. To do this drain the water from your water supply hose. Then re connect the hose to the water supply and to the RV. Turn the water supply on. Turn on a hot water faucet in your RV. Air from the hose will be forced into the water heater. Every time you re connect an empty hose you re establish an air gap IF you open a hot water faucet first.

RE: Mystery Wires... Any thoughts?

Rust Oleum makes a rust converter. It converts rust to a hard, solid surface that can be painted. Hammerite is another brand that does the same thing. I have used both brands with good results.

RE: Selling Canadian MHome in US with no title

If the vehicle needs to be "properly imported" into the US for the purpose of sale, could the owner drive it into Mexico and turn around and import it for sale at a USA/Mex border crossing? Mexico is a lot closer than Canada if you are in Texas.

RE: 5th wheel suspension question

I have done some research on trailer shocks as I was curious if they did anything. What I found is that most were mounted on an angle and did little, but those that were mounted vertically helped. So, if yours are vertical, I would try and find replacements.

RE: NJ to Grand Canyon via Mt Rushmore

I have made a number of trips like yours. For holidays and major attractions I made reservations, but for traveling and minor attractions I called ahead when I stopped for lunch to make a reservation for that night.

RE: Gaspe Trip, Quebec

Wow.......... kids start back that early in Quebec. In the southern USA that is when school starts for some but in the northern USA many do not start until early Sept. Thanks for the information.

RE: North Carolina to Connecticut

I-95 in the DC - Baltimore area is just as bad as NYC. Plus you cannot go thru any tunnel in Baltimore with propane. The go around is I-695 using the Key Bridge. I suggest you leave I-95 in Virginia.

RE: Gaspe Trip, Quebec

Thanks for the answers. My French is non existent as I took Spanish in High School and College. If I go it will be in either August or Sept.

RE: Gaspe Trip, Quebec

I am also thinking of a Gaspe trip but will drive a car and stay in motels. I do not speak French, would that be a problem? Also, would I need to make motel reservations or can I just "wing it"?

RE: D day, June 6, 1944 - where was Mexico

McAllen, TX is the location of the Texas War Memorial. The Memorial is very large and occupies ground on the east side of the new convention center. This is an outdoor memorial and is quite impressive. The story of the Mexican 201st Squadron is told in great detail on one of the many granite stones that comprise the memorial.

RE: We in input on a New Brunswick/Nova Scotia trip

I suggest staying overnight on PEI and not day tripping to it. I have been all over that area and drive times are slow as Matt stated.

The very first thing to do is what Bobbo stated.

RE: Hydraulic Slide Will Not Extend Completely

Have you checked the hydraulic fluid reservoir to make sure it is full? If you can get to the slide mechanism look for a travel limit switch, which may need to be adjusted.

RE: Need help figuring out why my rig is overweight

I ordered a custom made cargo trailer a few years ago. It was delivered with an incorrect weight sticker. The sticker used the wrong axle rating to calculate GVWR. I called the factory and they sent me a new corrected sticker. A number of years ago I called the factory that built my travel trailer. The sun had faded my weight sticker to the point it could not be read. I asked for a new sticker. One was mailed to me. All was correct except the date of manufacture. It used the current date as the build date. I called the factory. I was told by the clerk who made the sticker that the date could not be changed as the machine spit out only the date the sticker was made. I have been to a number of RV factories and never seen a scale. I went to Google Earth and looked at the Grand Design factory in Middlebury. I did not see a scale. The take away from all of this is do not think that the stickers on an RV are always correct.

RE: Drury Suites Snowbird Rate RGV

I went to their web site and "booked" for the month of March. Using the rack rate but with a senior discount it was $2984 including taxes and fees from March 1 to March 31.

RE: Can't bring TT home because of neighbors parking in street?

Try parking your RV in the street. When they complain, tell them they have given you no choice. If they park in their driveways then you will too.

RE: Pioneer RV Resort, Padre Island, Corpus Christi, TX

I have stayed there, but many years ago. Very nice RV Park. What I did not like was that you could watch your RV rust away from the salt air in the early morning fog.
