RE: over nite stops

Had pic of a Volvo (car) in a truck spot but can't find it. I'll put it up later.

RE: Leather Sofa Or Fabric Sofa?

Leather but make sure that it is real leather. The faux stuff fails quickly. If no kids are involved consider fabric but accidents do happen.

RE: Where to put generator in 21' travel trailer

Theft is usually just opportunity. They don't steal what they don't see. Put it in a plastic tub just inside the TT door while traveling or gone from the site. Make sure you turn the gas off if your gen has that option. If you have a bed cover leave it under there but locked to a corner lower tie down.

RE: Used Montana vs. Jayco Pinnacle

They are both quality units but I would go with the Jayco having owned 2. Don't dwell on it too long or they will both be gone.

RE: Need a 1/2" Propane Hose ASAP

Hire a 12 year old with a 22 or you will be fixing it again. Check local regulations first. Pellet guns are less than $40 and won't have the neighbors calling "shots fired" and getting you shot. BTW they do make low velocity 22 longs that the neighbors won't even hear.

RE: Class-C'ers Unsecured EZ-Up Meets Side of Nice Prevost

Good thing it didn't hit legs first. The slide corner stopping it may have kept it from scraping down the whole side of the coach. She is a pretty one.

RE: Why remove dinette booth and replace with table and chairs

"We don't need the bed space tho I better act quick before the wife thinks about bringing a grandkid." Cracked me up. No way to win that one, mine wants to bring 2 at a time. I've agreed but only if they are potty trained. I've about run out of that one, the last one is mostly out of that now. The cool thing is that they become little people about the same time so they are much more enjoyable.

Who says the C pictured owned the EZ up? It could have come from anywhere.

RE: New to rv ownership is this an okay fix?

I wouldn't have waited until the rain stopped. Too late for that now but get the right cover. Water damage is the number one killer of RVs.

RE: Parking on Slopped Drivery

I see that no cars are parked on that street. Is there a HOA or a busybody neighbor that will quickly have that TT removed and the cars back in the garage? This entire concept is wishful thinking. Please find a storage unit and bring it home the night before you leave to pack.

RE: Dometic 2852 coil fan replacement

Thanks Doug. I always appreciate your input.

Dometic 2852 coil fan replacement

On our last trip the fridge external coil cooling fan was squalling in mid 90s heat. I ordered a pair of fans from Amazon but let them sit until until it cooled down here in NC. It doesn't look like that's going to happen. When I pulled the fridge out yesterday I discovered that it had been out before. The chrome tape was punctured and the upper 2 screws inside were missing. This is a 2014 so that surprised me. Anyway I look at the back of the unit and there sits 1 fan next to empty mounting holes for another fan. I mounted both new fans, made a wiring harness to combine the 2 using the connector for the original fan and put it back together. The ones I used are Wathai 9225 92mm x 25mm 12V 2Pin Dual Ball Bearing DC Brushless Cooling case Fan at 10.99 each free prime shipping. They are the exact same size with the exact same mounting holes. Dumb luck.

RE: How much weight is too much?

Without scale slips this is all conjecture.

RE: Exclusive: Utterly Unique Fifth Wheel

I want to see one in person with specs and pricing available. OTR buses have had basement AC for 50 plus years without issue. Height is no issue, they addressed that already. It's about time someone reinvented the idea, time will tell.

RE: What is the opening question....

You've been thinking about this for a while haven't you? :B

RE: Reality check - 2006 Chevy 2500

I would not be too concerned with GVWR. With a FW, almost all weight is on the rear axle/rear tires. I'm thinking you have a RAWR of at least 6000, so how much wt is on the rear axle right now? Lets guess 2800 plus hitch 200 still leaves 3000 for pin wt, which would handle loaded pin wt of say 2400 using the FW you are considering. You can take your truck only, loaded with people, fuel, some gear, add 200 for hitch, and see exactly what the rear axle weighs. Jerry My RAWR is 6800ish. Great next step to do as you suggest...go do a weigh and see. I’ll shoot for on evening this week. Please post a pic of your load ratings from the door jam. The 6800 lb RAWR seems awful high for a 2500. I'm seeing 6084 listed.

Was my post that volatile?

I guess it was. Short version, KOA Outer Banks Currituck Sound beware. Not on the outer banks, only one pic on the site is actually there, no pool, and very high prices.
