RE: RV Life unexpectedly comes to a sudden end!

Downunda, I feel your pain, we are 77 and my wife's health is getting worse and worse. She has multiple problems and walks with a walker so it is hard for her to get in and out of the motor home. I am not ready to sell it but it is 20 years old with low miles and in good shape but not worth a lot of money. Since I have indoor storage for it and don't need the money I think I will keep it in hope to use it again. It is scary to have health problems or mechanical problems like you did so I certainly understand your position! I guess we should be thankful for all of the good times we have had!!! Best wishes, Ed

RE: Land border closed to Canada

I think that people should be vaccinated going both ways, other than that just open the north border!

RE: Any 80mph PLUS - class Aers still on here ?

I usually set my cruise on 65, have gone 75 or better a few times but not for long. I would hate to blow a tire at even 65 let alone 80 mph! To each is own.

RE: Do you always need an RV Park ? .....

WOW, we have been camping since the 1960's, tent, fold down, pickup camper, 3 class C's and 2 class A's, have stayed at Flying J twice because we had no choice. Not rich but would much prefer to stay in an RV park or a camp ground! Walmart would be an emergency for us!

RE: Leave propane on while driving?

I run the refrigerator while traveling and even filling up. The refrigerator is 5 feet off of the ground and on the opposite side of the MH from the gas filler. In winter I have even ran the furnace while traveling but would not fill with gas while it or the water heater is running, they are much lower than the refrigerator and the furnace is in the rear not so far from the gas fill.

RE: giving it up

I sure understand but glad you can still enjoy a cabin in a campground! At 77, I am in pretty good shape but my wife has multiple health issues and walks with a walker 90% of the time. I am not ready to sell our motor home but we didn't use it at all last year and this year we used it 3 nights at a nearby camp ground for a family reunion. We wanted to take it to Montana to visit my wife's sister but I am afraid the wife's health is just not good enough to make the trip. The MH sits inside and is in very good shape with 30K miles on it but it is 20 years old so it is not worth a lot so I think we will just keep it and hope we can use it again!

RE: How old is too old?

Well, I am almost 77 and feel I can drive the RV just fine. My Mom died at 98 when she slipped on the ice and broke her hip while getting in her car to drive a 40 mile trip. While I can drive just fine and am physically pretty strong, my wife has several medical issues and I can barely get her in and out of the camper. We want to take a trip to Montana this summer to see her sister but I am afraid we may not be able to because of her health. It is not always the driver that forces us to give up the RV! :(

RE: Bouncy new shocks

Sounds to me like the shocks are not doing their job, probably to light for your MH.

RE: Biting Insects

We love to go to Texas in the winter. We usually go from Galveston to Mustang Island, Have only encountered bad mosquitoes in one small area, other than that no problems with insects.

I have had good service from Good Sam towing service!

RE: Death Wobble Continues ....

It seems to me that either the alignment is wrong or it has worn or loose parts or both.

RE: Oil change on the road

Dealers that are equipped to work on trucks or truck service centers would be able to do it.

RE: How Bad Is "Bad Enough" COVID-19

Sorry to hear about your friend, I hope she recovers OK from the virus! I also hope you can stay well and safe until you can find a place to get the vaccinations! Best wishes to you and stay safe.

RE: sewer odor

Could the odor be from a faulty air admittance valve(s) under the sink? The odor from a gray tank can be just as nasty as a black tank. I agree, I have had trouble with those valves under the sink and the lavatory. They are cheap to replace.

RE: gas mileage

I would say 7 to 8 mpg, with toad might be .5 less.

RE: Slide Seal Conditioner that doesn't "stink"

I've never put anything on my slide seals. The RV is 12 years old the seals don't look worn or deteriorated yet. I agree, we have a 2001 and have never put anything on the seals, no problems yet.

RE: Tire pressure and temperature recommendations

I run what the MH manufacturer recommends on the VIN/GVWR tag. Have never had a problem. I have had each axle weighed and that had the same result for the pressure recommended.

RE: Jack Lube

I have used WD-40 but I prefer silicone. WD-40 is a good cleaner and protectant from moisture but it is not a very good lubricant.
