RE: Outer banks

I would suggest we know what part of Ohio but none of it would send you to the Norfolk area--PA pike to Breezewood, 70 to Hagerstown then 81 to 66 to 17 to 95 to US 64 at Rockymount….Puts you right on the outer banks and you missed all the traffic drama of the cities. In Southern Ohio, I 64 to Richmond 95 S to Rockymount US64 E to the outer banks---still missed all the cities.

RE: Losing the camper for the fall

Many years ago while working on building the DC light rail I worked in a fab yard where the DC Nationals stadium is today. 2 students going to Georgetown had an old tugboat tied up there as their living quarters while in school....When they left they just cut the boat loose and for several years it sat South of the Wilson bridge about where that National Park is today....Inovation

RE: Step out dash light sensor

Thanks to those that are helpful especially Doug who always seems to come through. Also explains the double sided tape. I will try this today and thanks.

Step out dash light sensor

Returning from a trip the warning light for the steps being out came on. Steps were fine. So I get under there and it looks like the part of the sensor with the wires is there but the piece that it is supposed to contact when closed is gone. So far I have been unable to find any reference to this to either buy new or fix it. I noticed before a long time ago that it looked like whatever it was was attached with 2 sided tape and is now gone....Any ideas?

RE: Residential Style Central Air - NOT Roof Air Question

I had a Winnebago Luxor with the basement air and just sold it 2 years ago. The A/C always would about freeze us out.....never did have a problem with it and it rode around in there for over 100,000mi. Doug is the man and I am glad he is here for us.

RE: RV carport/shelter

Carolina Carports is probably the most experienced in these parts. They go up in WV, Down in SC and probably more places than that. You tell them what YOU want and they will build it....depending on where in NC you are you might need some strength for snow. No builder will get close to those folks for a purpose built shed and usually done in a day

RE: Pet Peeves long road trip

You all should try my mess which at one time was a 40ft DP towing a 32ft enclosed trailer--72ft! That's longer than most tractor trailers. As far as yielding, I was cited and convicted for failure to move left on I-85 in VA. I used the "I couldn't get over" because I couldn't but I did slow down excuse but was still fined $164. So go ahead and block them trying to get on the highway.

RE: Mercedes C-Class

I sure have liked all of mine except for the 240D----that thing was a slug and only lasted a year at our house. We have 2 Benz right now and are happy with them although one is pretty old it has been good.

RE: Campground on river VA/WV/KY

Our reservations in WV were cancelled. Can't have out of state campers yet and today, 11 July, WV had the highest percentage of new cases in the US. Lots of rivers like that in WV

RE: 100 days till snowbirding........ maybe not

FL don't look like the promised land right now. We are heading to Pigeon Forge, TN for a week then to Hendersonville in the mountains of NC. Saw this morning that WV had highest % in the country right now. Sure have us pinned down for now but best to stay safe

RE: Smart car and ready brute elite ll

I tow my Smart with a dolly. 6 years and tons of miles without a problem. + with the dolly I can tow our other FWD cars if we need more space. Leaving in a couple of weeks and taking the Honda CRV......Most of the time its the Smart.

RE: Mercedes C-Class

I bought my first Benz in 1970, a diesel wagon, and have had about everything since from a Smart car to a tricked out diesel van. Never spent much on maintenance because they don't break much---normal stuff like brakes, tires, and oil changes are just like any other car. You take care of them they take care of you. The rest of that class C is just like everyone else except its a little better and it costs a little more to go first class

RE: aluminum flat bed

Not a very good idea on a short bed truck....all the farmers around here have the aluminum flat beds with goose neck hitches---don't know if they are 1/2 ton or larger but all say a short bed is to close to the cab and rides rougher also.

KD4 Said it well consider this also the DRW has 50% more rubber on the ground. How is that not be better? I bought my first DRW in 1985 and never went back. Same with the 3 axel trailer, once I had one I can't imagine looking back. That set up is so much more stable than a SRW and I don't understand the difference in daily use as other than being a little wider. You get used to that.

RE: Locked out of RV

Good Sam or Coach Net would take care of it OR call a lock smith

RE: New Mexico 'Quarantine" Requirements

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure......if everyone would cooperate we would have a lot less cases. People with the attitude of that person above are a big part of the problem.

RE: Step not retracting completely "jackhammering"

Pardon me for intruding on your post. Mine is working fine but the warning light on the dash don't go out. Step works fine and the light underneath goes out but the dash warning light stays on. Your situation can be cured with a new motor assembly that is about $40 from Auto Zone

RE: New to RV’ing....and might not last

First you got a top shelf DP---Did you get the books with it? You got a lousy lock smith---he should have just picked the lock. I downsized from 40 to 36 2 years ago and have been doing this for over 50 years and trust me you will never know it all, never. I always get high end units like you have, current one is a Monaco. You have a lot to learn.

RE: How many miles a day can we go?

I am 79 and drove my DP 400mi yesterday like nothing. I have always drove longer distances at times than others thought reasonable. Drove many times from Baltimore to Tampa--Clearwater only stopping once. Last long trip I drove a 45ft DP from CA to lower FL in 3 days and 2 nights.....Like said above it depends on you.

RE: GM HD Trucks Many with AWD instead of 4WD

I did away with the 4X4 F350 when I moved South. If it snows here it can sit but I do have a 4X4 F150 if I need to go that has got used very little. I agree it that 1% of the time when you need it
