RE: Campgrounds around Shenandoah Valley in VA?

Found a site at Luray KOA now. Will be traveling there Nov 4. That’s the day after elections, I have some concerns about traveling the day after the elections. I don’t know what will happen after the elections. What is your thoughts? You'll be traveling away from irate lunatics and into the path of....irate lunatics.

RE: 5.3 vs 6.2

By simply avoiding the 4L60E is a step in right direction. I've grenaded (4) in 20 yrs towing, no joke.

RE: Tongue height

I've always heard nose down slightly but have always strived for level. A WDH can be your friend here.

RE: Watch those glass stove tops.

Found out later she had large chilli pot on back burner. I'm certain this directed a lot of heat towards glass top.....big pots up front.

Watch those glass stove tops.

Was out on the lake fishing when wife called from campsite, she was in a panic. The fold back glass top shattered sounding like a gun firing, her words, while she was cooking. I removed top of stove and cleaned all glass and removed all hardware pertaining to glass top. She said DO NOT REPLACE THE GLASS TOP. Yes it was folded all the way back she claims.

RE: New tow vehicle!

Oboy, own a Rubicon and love it but towing prowess is non existent.

RE: RV Water heater

Our water heater " suburban I believe " has an electric on-off switch at the WH itself, another electric on-off switch at the control panel and separate Propane switch. I've not seen this configuration before. Regarding the OP's concern. We've yet to use Propane to heat water when hooked up to of 5 until kids moved out.

RE: Campgrounds around Shenandoah Valley in VA?

Perhaps I'm a little late but lived in Shenandoah valley my entire life. Are you looking for KOA type camping or off the beaten path campgrounds that accommodate larger RVs ?

RE: Flying Floating Flooring

I did a previous home with it and these floors are very easy to install with a miter saw. My biggest concern would be how well will the slide except this increase in floor height and will all cabinet doors open,do you have fold in steps. If none of these concerns are an issue then it will likely look fantastic but expect some minor separation in low humidity using glue or just glue the section under slide. And if you pursue this I'd be curious how it turns out.

RE: first time out

I recommend purchasing an Progressive Industries EMS-PT50X and plug your trailer into that and camp worry free. And please connect CG water to your city water hookup and NOT black tank flush.

RE: Well water

Sulfur will be a challenge to remove but you could ask the well owner to drop chlorine tablets into well then all you need is a simple charcoal filter at the RV to remove chlorine.....believe me it works. Google hydrogen peroxide injection tanks and see if anything is available for RVs as this is the most effective method I know of to eliminate sulfur.

RE: 50 amp surge protector

Ask the tech if he is a Master Electrician. A surge usually hits and burns out electronics and never starts any fires or melts anything. It is a very fast jolt of very high electricity. I agree, the "tech" has no clue. The "surge" word is used excessively, just like the word "short", to describe so many electrical problems. Ok ok. Everything is perfect. No damage done to anything. It’s strictly my imagination. Lol, us internet folks have a better idea what you experienced.....better so than you. Grin

RE: 50 amp surge protector

Yep, bad lightening storm.You should unplug during lightning storm. I always do but it sucks when an unsuspecting storm hits at 2am.

RE: Tried towing after new tires & did not go well

Been driving pickup trucks since 1977 and never heard nor experienced new tire squirm. Possibly due to lack of expectation. Idk

RE: GM 6.6 gas

I would wait for the 8/10 speed and 4.10 gears, then GM will have a nice gas truck. Partly why I'm thinking Ford. Downside is I think the 7.3 is dumbed down a bit too much. I like what Ford did with the motor but I like the small block GM motor and I am not a fan of the empty ride of a Ford HD truck. The 6.6 back in the day would have been considered big block, 402 ci. I've had (2) 3/4 tons.....1 chevy and a Ram, both kicked like a mule empty.

RE: 50 amp surge protector

Most of the cheap surge protectors protect nothing.What's cheap? I guess cheap is subjective but the ole get what you pay for.

RE: How do you pay your bills on the road on extended trips?

Auto pay and a text every morning from bank with updated balance.

RE: 50 amp surge protector

Use the EMS and don't worry. Most of the cheap surge protectors protect nothing.

RE: GM 6.6 gas

No question, I really like the looks of the Silverado and the 6.6 has impressive numbers but unfortunately I need a truck prompto so felt Ford pulled ahead with the 7.3 10spd auto especially for my needs, a designated tow vehicle. I've owned 5 Chevy trucks and been very pleased and see quite a few 2020's locally including 2 retired friends of mine who really like their 6.6 trucks. GM needs to catch up in the tranny department.

RE: Open Range slide issue

It's usually just a couple of screws on interior trim to access motor. Inspect, could be as simple as loose chain.
