RE: Camping Lights

Are they breaking the law? Is there a rule against them? No there's not but it kind of like the one's sitting outside watching there television or have there music playing to loud. I don't want to listen to your football game or whatever your choice of program is or whatever music you like. Lights is the same way only in a visual aspect.In most places there is a rule against loud music, a loud TV, or just plain loud in general. That makes a difference Yes but do we have to make rules for everything? It's called respect and courtesy toward to others camping. Case it point-there's no rules against me have a campfire or where the smoke blows from it. If my campfire smoke is blowing into someone else's campsite so be it. No rules against it. But if I see that happening I will move mine (I use a portable) where it's not or put it out. I just get tired of everything has to have a law or rules!

RE: Auto slider or manual

I have a manual slider and in the last 18 years of towning I've only had to use it one time.

RE: Camping Lights

We use our under led awning lights and a set of string lights attached to the awning tube. Under awning lights go off at night when we turn in and the string light not bright to begain with is turned way down with a dimmer switch so they give just enough light to see to walk. Others that use a lot of lights don't really bother me that much unless there shinning right at us and I will tell them when they do to dim them or turn them off.

RE: Disconnect battery when not using?

Also, when traveling down the road, aren't the trailer brakes powered by the trailer battery? The rv battery only used for the brakes if the emergency break away is pull. The tow vehicle supply power for regular braking on the rv.

RE: parachute for sale

Had a old man tell me that if I ever was to fly take jumper cable with me. Said if I had to jump out and the parachute didn't open to pull the jumper cable out cause those dang thing is going to hang up on something before I hit the ground.LOL

RE: Falken Wildpeak AT3W

I also have the Falken Wildpeaks in a 285/75R16 10ply load rated at 3750 lb. Have about 20,000 miles on them and tread wear and traction is far better than the Firestones-Yokohama and Goodyear that I ran in the past. When I wear these out I will buy another set for sure.

RE: It could have went bad!

I've only been RVing for about 4 years. Fortunately, I have not yet had one of those moments. I'll have to bookmark this thread just to remind me once in a while to take my time and double check everything. Coming home and finding the pins sitting on the table would freak me out. Mike When I seen those all I could think about was what if that had came loose and hurt or killed someone! The rv one thing but someones life!

It could have went bad!

What's the single worst thing that you did or didn't do that could have really went bad but didn't? Couple years ago first trip of the year. One of those spur of the moment trip-got in a hurry because getting off work late. Get home the DW already loaded most of the stuff. I jumped on the tractor and use the bucket to load and install the 5th wheel hitch. Get that done hook the rv up -do a walk around all is good and hit the road to the camp ground. Get there all is good for the weekend- pack up head home. Get home park the rv in the carport-unhook and notice on a little table I have there my 4 hitch bed rail pins! Yep pull the rv 40 mile round trip with the hitch not pined to the bed rails.

RE: Dark interiors

That what we found out when we started look at new 5th wheels. So looking around my wife and I didn't like all the dark interior and then we walked in a Jayco with the farm house interior and she just fell in love with it.Now you can guess what interior we we have in our new Jayco! LOL It's a off white but looks really good in our opinion.

RE: potty without the rv

My wife bought a small pop up incloser that sets up in less than a minute and a 5 gal bucket with a potty lid. She put a small trash bag in it with kitty litter. That what she uses while were out fishing on the pontoon boat.

RE: Installing rear wireless camera

Also make sure your camera is a observation camera and not just a backup camera. Observation camera can be left on 24/7 and most backup camera will burn out if left on for extended time. A good friend of mine found that out after leaving his backup camera on while on the road after a couple hours.
