RE: winterizing

You ought to hear the air coming out somewhere, even if it is going into the tank. I’d winterize with antifreeze, like today, since temps may hit single digits in parts on NJ tonight.

RE: Just curious?

Airstream would be the only high dollar RV that is giving you superior quality for the extra money. Lance and Arctic Fox are noted to having pretty good quality for a bit more on the price tag. Never looked at an Arctic Fox, but we did look at several Lance trailers. They all had the same cheap a$$ components as every other trailer out there.

RE: Repair and epdm roof

I would fill the holes with dicor then cover with a piece of Eternabond. I wouldnt worry about dabs of tape scattered on the roof, keeping out water would be my top priority.

RE: Water Usage

Back in my youth, our scout troop always had that pot of rinse water boiling to give the dishes just washed by young boys a scalding rinse for hygienic reasons. Yup, I remember those days!:B

RE: Gardiner Montana

We stayed in Gardiner in July, though not with our RV. I don’t recall seeing Rocky Mountain, but did see Yellowstone RV Park. It didn’t look bad, and I wouldn’t hesitate to stay there, especially for convenient access to Yellowstone. As mentioned, Yellowstone’s edge is quite a distance from Yellowstone’s entrance. When we passed it, I remember thinking “almost there”! A half hour later we finally made it. Gardiner is pretty convenient for stocking up on supplies, gas, and has plenty of restaurants to choose from. Nothing fancy at all, but reasonably priced. Enjoy your trip!

RE: RV Antifreeze

I buy the rv antifreeze with the propylene glycol. Flush it well in the spring and no bad taste.

RE: Trouble with California

Pull up with your sunglasses OFF! Look them in the eye, let them speak FIRST. Oh good grief. What, the fruit police are now the gestapo?

RE: Trouble with California

You know I aint the sharpest tool in the shed but I know this much. You folks are just plain stupid..... They didn't set up the AG inspection stations to harass you, they are trying to protect our resources..... What happens when you bring an invasive species to a place where its not supposed to be, it kills our trees, our fish our agriculture... I mean come on, you all like to come out west and see the beautiful scenery and stuff, eat the produce produced by California, eat the fish caught in the lakes and streams, oceans..... Br refusing these inspections you have the potential to cause harm and damage to all these things... The reason, you were probably singled out was cause yes you are from New York, but maybe its the fact that you are TRAVELING!! DUH....How do you think this **** gets to all these locations??? They hitch rides on boats, cars, RV's, Trailers, Trucks, Airplanes.. yada yada... Pine Beetles, Asian Carp, Zebra Mussels to name a few Wake up People! So, are they doing these inspections on trains, planes, cruise ships, cargo ships, as well as inspecting the luggage of everyone who travels in them?

RE: Trouble with California

I stay away from California. Problem solved. Agreed! California certainly has strange priorities.

RE: Built-in microwave sounds sick

Sounds like the microwave going bad. Pull it out and plug it into your house to test it.

RE: 2019 F-150

The 3.3 is not an ecoboost engine. A quick search shows that a properly equipped 3.3 has a max tow of 5,000#. You may want to rethink the truck or the camper.

RE: Headlights blinking randomly

I had a car that did this and it turned out to be the headlight switch.

RE: Philly visit?

I would take two days and see as much as possible. It is a very interesting area. Use the Phlash to get around, the stops are each near sites to see. Don’t forget Eastern State Penitentiary.

RE: Ideas for a truck to pull 6500lb trailer?

Is the 6500# dry weight or gross weight? If that is gross, a 150/1500 would be more than enough truck. I have a 3.5 150 3.5 eb and it tows a 6000# tt like it isnt there. It is max tow, so it has the bigger gas tank, which is nice to have when towing. When we bought, we knew that the tt we bought would be the biggest we would get. Everyone has their own wants, and ours didn’t include a tt that is as big as a condo. Before buying the truck, I drove my neighbors one year old f250. While some people are “truck people” and love to drive the biggest truck they can find, I am not. Small, nimble cars are what I’m used to, and the 250 diesel was not for me. Since I’m not going to tow anything bigger than what I have, the f150 fits my bill for many years to come. Bottom line, keep your eye on the payload of the truck you’re looking at and you’ll be fine.

RE: Anyone here upgraded their headlights?

Noise, radio interference, flickering, poor light distribution, and blinding other drivers can all be associated with sticking LED bulbs into a housing designed for halogen lights. Don’t cheap out and you can alleviate some of these issues. Add on light bars are designed for off road use and are, most likely, not legal to use on the road (although that doesn’t stop a lot of people).

RE: Purchasing Motor HOme from Campers Inn

When we purchased our tt, we called Campers Inn because they had the same model available. Turns out they were a couple of thousand dollars higher than the other dealer we were considering. AND the tt they had did not have the larger fridge and roof access ladder we wanted. They were hard sell, and came Down to the price of the other dealer offered, but without the options mentioned. I laughed when they tried to convince me to buy from them, at the same price, without the options. Bought at Stolzfus in Adamstown and couldn’t be happier.

RE: Thinking about a new Jeep tow vehicle...need your input...

Know nothing about towing a Jeep but have had one as a daily driver for 20 years. Not sure you can even buy one that is not a 4x4? Would not own anything else There are plenty of Jeep models that are front wheel drive.
