RE: Dumping Tanks in an Empty Full Service Site

They didn't pay for those campsite services so IMO their cheating. I don't think they're cheating. If there are two dump sites, does it matter where they dump their tanks?

RE: Renting out your RV nightmares.

Maybe the black tank can be repaired? It doesn't have to be pretty, just leak free. Possibly your shop does not want to mess around repairing the tank. If you cannot find a replacement tank, I would look into plastic welding, glue, tape, J-B Weld or anything that can repair the black tank. It's worth trying. Your damaged black tank reminds me of an old joke I read on the forum. Q: what's the difference between a rental RV and an ATV? A: the rental RV can go anywhere.

RE: The big purchase

So my question is if anyone would like to offer an opinion is. Would it be a good idea to post an add wanting to buy an RV? It may work but, I'm guessing you will get a call from every RV dealer west of the Mississippi. They will ignore the part of your ad about a Class C, original owner, etc..

RE: Bring beer into Canada

Sorry, way off topic, but this reminds me of a famous quote: "24 cans in a case; 24 hours in a day. Coincidence? I think not" Does that mean 30 packs are for Daylight Savings? :B

RE: They Better Not Screw Us Up

Even if 500k people show up, where will they park, eat, find a toilet? It would be a biohazard site when they are done. Woodstock 1969? :C

RE: Bring beer into Canada

Buy beer when you get to Canada. They have some good stuff up there.

We need a lot more chlorine in the gene pool.

RE: So I bought a new to me travel trailer and.....

It's Camping World, not Camper World. Well, more and more it's becoming Gander Outdoor Camper World for Camping. Or something like that. I believe it's just Gander Outdoors, no Camper World or something like that.

RE: We always unhook, even on an overnight stop

If you really worry about what could happen, maybe the best thing to do is sell the RV. Then get a house/apartment as close as possible to a hospital. That way you're as ready as possible if there is a medical emergency. Or, just enjoy yourself and don't dwell on what could happen?

RE: Stoped routine

I wonder if we are all going to do the same basic checks because we are all on the same forum. I don't think it's because we're on the same forum. It's probably because it's common sense things that get checked and it's mostly a visual inspection. I wash my windshield whenever I can but didn't mention it because everyone may think I'm weird. :)

RE: Stoped routine

My stopped routine is about the same as yours, walk around and visually check everything. I use an infrared thermometer to check heat. I don't have TT but, I think the walkaround is the same for any type of rig.

RE: Travel Trailer vs. Motorhome (my situation)

Next I recommend you reconsider buying only a new unit. RVs depreciate rapidly. Mine was in like new condition and cost less than half the cost of a new unit. Also RV construction and parts are often way less than perfect. New RVs always seem to require a shake down period and fixing issues. Let someone else do that for you. If you decide on a TT you should have lots and lots of choices for used units. A lot of families buy TTs and sell them after a few years and relatively little use as the kids grow up and refuse to travel with the parents. You told the OP to buy only a new unit. Then you tell him the benefits of used units. :h

RE: Rubber roof repair

The staples should hold the rubber in place. If it holds for 1500 miles it should be okay. My concern would be how well the Gorilla Tape sticks to the rubber. I know it holds well but, will being covered with Flex Seal cause any problems? My next concern would be the Flex Seal and how well it holds up. I would have used rubber roof sealer and Eternabond but, in an emergency you have to use what is available. Just inspect the roof often and watch for leaks. If it holds up then apply a roof sealer. You may get several more years from the roof. I repaired and coated the original roof on our 96 Southwind. It has held up for several years.

RE: Dogs

I think that the people who need 'guard' dogs at a camp site are the same type that need to light up their site like Times Square, all night. I like dogs but, not dogs that bark nonstop. They should be left at home.

RE: This is why we can't have nice things.

We can't fix stupid. All we can do is try to regulate it.

RE: Dont do it go AAA instead

I know one can purchase road harazard tire insurance when you purchase your tire - but I never have. Note the word ROAD HARAZARD. You lost me. What is ROAD HARAZARD? I'm familiar with Road Hazard insurance for tires. Is it the same thing?

RE: New roof material question

It's probably Eternabond. It's an excellent product and comes in different widths.

RE: Front Cap Fading

Here's a link to the Red Max Pro process. RMP is no longer available, ZEP #3 is the same product. Use the process to remove the oxidation. If you don't want to use floor wax, use the wax of your choice. The prep is the important part of the process. I use ZEP #3 on our 96 Southwind. It does a nice job.

RE: Favorite multi-meter for RV / Solar

I have a Craftsman multi-meter. I bought it about 12 years ago for $25. I tested it against a Fluke a friend owns. It gave the same readings as the fluke within one or two volts. A free Harbor Freight cheapie gave about the same readings. I'm satisfied with the Craftsman, it does the job for me.
