RE: Cades Cove Campground in a 40ft 5th Wheel?

I always call directly to the campground when I have concerns about the site. Many times you’ll get someone who is an RVer and they will look at the site and tell you what it’s like.

RE: Compartment door latch

I believe that’s the way mine are from the factory, but I’ll check when I’m outside

RE: Torklift Glowstep Revolution Review

I’m very happy with mine. Did the same thing starting with three and adding the fourth. One great feature you don’t hear about is that they can be deployed almost like a ladder to allow you to use them when something is close to the door. They are more visible too, which helps my wife who has depth perception issues.

RE: Spider crack in clear coat I'd be concerned that those cracks are from the gooseneck frame flexing. Cracks and bad welds there are not unheard of.

RE: Maybe when I get a little older

I retired at 58. Loved my job, and debated for a long while before I committed. Had about 5 offers to go to work making more money. I worked for a couple of limited time projects, but find I don’t care to have my time scheduled for me. If an interesting project comes along, I might consider it. Otherwise, I’ll sleep when I want, fish when I want, piddle in the shop when I want and travel when I want. I never thought my job was stressful, but after several weeks I noticed I was less stressed. I like that feeling.

There is a regulator in the stove as well.

RE: is anyone using one of these AC units?

Evaporative coolers aren’t much good unless the air is bone dry where you are.

RE: Breaks Interstate Park

Google Earth might help.... You can’t even tell there is a campground there on Google. Heavily wooded.

RE: Residential Frig doors lock

If this company makes one for your model of refrigerator (which you didn't mention), it's the best there is: Link Rob Rats. They show our Whirlpool model, but indicate it is not available. Anybody have contact info for the company so I can contact them directly?

RE: Axle and tire?

12,275-20% pin weight is 9,820, so your axles and tires aren’t underrated. You may want to weigh your trailer though. It’s easy for them to gain weight over time through mods and repairs. Overloading them is easy, especially with full tanks.

RE: Back in the dark ages !

I was always told that solid wire conducts / allows more electricity / power. That is why houses are wired with "romex", solid wire, instead of stranded wire like extension cords. Considering how difficult romex is to work with, everyone would prefer stranded wire if it would work better. Well, that is the simple explanation given to me by electricians! Solid wire is cheaper to make and easier to connect in household wiring. Stranded wire is better where flexibility is important such as lamp cords or in vehicles.

RE: Back in the dark ages !

More wires give more surfaces for current to travel on. Finer the strands the greater number of surfaces. Considering the same size of wires. Current does not travel on the wire surface until the frequency gets to about 20 KHz. It is not an issue for power.

RE: Norcold N611 acting odd, affected by interior coach lights

The problem is in your 12V supply. Check your battery disconnect switch and verify that your converter is producing power.

RE: North or Northwest of Milwaukee and points north

Harrington beach state park in Port Washington is nice and has large sites. It’s on the lake and Port Washington is a cool smaller town. Further up is kohler andre which is nice as well but the sites are a bit smaller and further from Milwaukee. West of Milwaukee is Ottawa lake campground but if I was going to pick between the two I would stick with Lake Michigan. Stopped in Kohler Andre last spring while traveling through. Nice place, though a little far along. We’ll check out Port Washington. Thanks!

North or Northwest of Milwaukee and points north

Looking for a spot for a few days. E&W and least. We'd want access to Milwaukee some, lakefront north of Milwaukee and maybe Madison. Wouldn't have to be right on top of any of those things. Prefer clean and friendly places, doesn't have to be luxury. Going to head north afterwards. Maybe Door County as a final destination, or maybe some time there then on to the UP and make our way back down through Michigan to Southern Indiana. The route after Milwaukee seems easier to plan, but we just don't have a good idea for that area. Advice on any parts of that route are appreciated.

RE: time to replace brakes?

You need to check your math. 0.08 is much less than 1/8 of an inch. It’s less than 1/12 of an inch. 0.18 inch is also much less than 9/32 of an inch. It’s 9/50 of an inch. 0.04 inches is 1/25 of an inch. New, mine were 3/16 (0.185) inch and replacement is recommended at 1/16 (0.0625) inch.

Downloading Membership Card to Apple Wallet

The club web site is configured improperly. When you try to save to the wallet, it produces an error. The Google version works, but not the Apple version. Sent an email with no response.
