Where to Buy Rubber Moldings for slide out

Rubber moldings are often sold in rolls of 50-100 feet for $100. Where is a good place to buy an 8 foot section for a slide out? I am interested in the piece across the top on a Rockwood Ultra lite. It is D shaped.

RE: RVing in the winter

Upper 20s is nothing to worry about, especially if you are occupying your rig.

RE: Do the Weight Police have jurisdiction off road?

I met some friends in Elko, NV. They were all making good money in the mining industry. In the winter there is not that much to do. They were all back country skiers and big fans of heli-skiing. They went in together and bought a Sno-Cat for backcountry skiing in the Ruby Mountains. Who needs a ski lift?

RE: tranny temp got to 250!! yikes,, troubling questions

I have the same setup. The old 4 speed 4R100 sometimes needs to be downshifted. What was the tachometer reading when you had the over heat? On steep mountain roads I do not hesitate to let the engine idle and cool off or let the brake rotors cool off either by the side of the road. The old transmissions are dependable but only have 4 gears. The rebuilt ones now being offered by companies like BD, have a new style of torque converter and stronger parts. They cost about $5,000 but would greatly increase the performance of the 7.3. The price is high but not compared to buying even a used 6.7. I am thinking of making the move at 175 k miles.

RE: Solar panel

I like Renogy panels and MTTP controllers. About $1 per watt.

RE: A drone while camping

Nope. You are inviting trouble around other people. They can be useful, but easily invade the privacy of other people and are intrusive.

RE: Travelling from Nevada to Alaska in the Middle of Winter

The Marine Highway is a great idea, but it costs a lot to take a truck and a TT. I have ridden it twice. Studded snow tires are great especially on ice and transitional snow. I ran them on all four wheels in Colorado during the legal season. It helped a lot getting around in the snow and logging in the mountains.

RE: Your Natioonal Parks..before they were parks...

The tremendous crowding of NPs have occurred a lot in the last 25 years. I can remember being in Yosemite in the 1970s and it was quiet, we did not need a permit to climb Half Dome. I used to go to Yellowstone at least every 2 years or so. There were no reservations needed. We used to swim in the Firehole River. By Sept there was hardly anyone there. Now I avoid NPs except in the off season.

RE: Long Road trip

I like a trip around 3-4 weeks max. I like a diesel truck and a TT.

RE: Inexpensive solar panels

Solar energy is best with efficient components. If you buy better quality components like panels and an MTTP controller you need less panels. Buying older used panels is a total **** shoot. Most of them are less efficient designs at the end of their service lives making them even less efficient.

RE: Black Tanks Won’t Flush

Add two bags of ice. Drive for awhile, then empty your tanks.

RE: Tow Vehicle Rear End Sag

First you need to find a hitch ball that sits at the right height so your trailer is more level. More drop is needed. Then you need to properly adjust your weight distributing hitch. Get some help if you are still having problems.

I have owned a TC, pop-up, TT, HTT and now back to a TT. A hybrid can be light and easy to pull with lots of room. You can turtle in it in bad weather. But they have some disadvantages. They are hot in summer, cold in winter and loud all the time. The space blanket material on the pop-out ends helps somewhat. There are those nights when the cooling breeze flows through the rig with the canvas open that are really memorable. When boondocking you can hear the critters like bugling elk much easier. But it was the heat that finally convinced me to go back to a travel trailer. Now I have a Rockwood and it is a class rig. Much warmer at night in the mountains, the shoulder season and in winter.

RE: Toyota motor homes

The older Toyotas were the slowest and most under powered RVs ever made.

RE: Travelling from Nevada to Alaska in the Middle of Winter

Common sense dictates chains going to Alaska in winter. The law is not that relevant.

RE: New Ford 7.3l Godzilla V8

No,running the old 7.3 diesel from 2002. It has a lot of life left in it. It may be around when the 7.3 gas engines are long gone.

RE: Is there any difference in DRIVING a gas class A vs diesel?

More power, better ride and fewer stops for fuel.

RE: burried in dog hair HELP

A side note. Animal people wear a lot of canvas clothing. It does not attract and retain dog hair like fleece and wool sweaters. I learned this from hanging around horse and mule people.
