RE: F-150 HDPP?

I can testify they are hard to find. I was not looking used but when I bought my 2018 new I had a couple of dealers search for a new one. None to be found. Don't know if they can search for a used one. I ended up with a Heavy duty towing package,XLT,ECO. Payload sticker is 1790#. I put e rated tires on it and it meets our needs,and pulls great, although I would have bought the HDPP if I could have found one. Short of ordering new you may have a hard search. Good luck

RE: lino cracked after cold spell

OK, got it now. Never used one but looks like it would do the job

RE: disk brake questions

Performance Trailer website was very informative. Any idea of what the labor cost would be from a place like that? I realize I can find out from them but am not quite ready to make the plunge. Just wondering if someone knows approximate cost.

RE: lino cracked after cold spell

It's called a couture gauge, $10-$15 exact shape. Try word floors around a rock fire place, plank floors around cabinets. https://www.lowes.com/pd/General-Tools........Bh1RNAR-EAQYASABEgIR4_D_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds Link doesn't work and I don't understand your comment:?

disk brake questions

Couple of questions please. 2019 GD 2500rl is TT WE are close to Myrtle Beach and I know there are a lot of RV owners there. We are thinking about going with a disk brake conversion. Has anyone had this done in the NE area of SC or SE NC? Price? Trying to find a reliable shop to do this at a reasonable price. Thanks

RE: lino cracked after cold spell

If you want to replace sheet vinyl yourself and worried about screwing up all the cuts in a small area just get some of this paper or similar and make a template. No need for a professional. Maybe cut a little big and trim. https://www.lowes.com/pd/Blue-Hawk-Builder-s-Paper-1-Pack-Paper-3-ft-x-140-ft-Drop-Cloth/50265367 I have done that before in small baths. Probably could find some nice vinyl remnants ( roll ends )pretty cheap. Just check, some of the better vinyls are not supposed to be glued all over, depends on the backing. I am sold on the new vinyl planking but not sure how it would do in really cold climates. Luckily we don't have hat issue.

RE: Water Pumps

Two issues IMO. Location and installation without concern for rattling pipes / poor mounting. We don't use ours much but the current TT has the pump located solidly in the outside storage area and I have a hard time telling it is running. Past TT pumps located inside in cabinets much more obvious.

RE: Florida Camping

In our experience you will only find a few days here and there via cancellations until the end of March, then it becomes easier. If you are good on the computer and check often you will likely find sites. May not be ideal and require moving.

RE: Pets and National Parks

My ex and I back packed into the SW entrance of Yellowstone back in the 70's for 2 nights with our little dog. She ended up hearing things in the night and I think almost got us eaten by a bear. The last day Rangers road in on horseback ( only humans we saw ). They were not amused with the dog growling at their horses. Took my DL and told me to come get it when we got out of the trail. They sat me down for a long talk, told me about the possible fines and then let me go. Young and dumb but memories!

RE: Just for you Gritdog 30 mph backwards

Don't look like to much traffic. Nice job. Now could you try it with a 30' TT? :)

RE: How do I put this electric motor back together?!

I have no idea how to fix it but if I were in that situation I would either have the repair guy do it right or buy a new motor or a new unit. I would be paranoid about a short and fire. Not worth the risk. JMO

RE: senior pass

Wa8yxm I think they may be referring to Social Services not Social Security. If so they are correct.

RE: Grand Design owners forum

I can't speak for before, but we bought a new 2019 Fall of 2018. We had several problems immediately and were on a deadline to go to the Keys. The customer service was great, authorized a mobile tech, sent out parts, and promptly refunded my expenses for labor. We had a couple of small issues later that I could repair. I emailed pictures of the parts and they sent them directly to me. We have been impressed so far with GD. The Forum hopefully will be as good. Time will tell.

RE: Grand Design owners forum

their crappy workmanship. Those mods are nothing more than Grand Design Kool Aid drinkers and basically a bunch of rump rangers. can't imagine why you might get kicked off a site

RE: senior pass

I think I paid 10.00 for mine but 80.00 would still have been a bargain. We haven't been to many NP but have saved more than the cost just in COE sites. Wish I could get a 80.00 pass for Disney world or Universal Studio, although it would likely be 80.00 a day :)

RE: Grand Design owners forum

I get a lot of help and zero grief - people are actually friendly and helpful. It's a great resource. That's good to hear. The other paid site has been very helpful. Looking forward to trying this one out. BTW Anyone know if the paid site will continue? A lot of info for the cost of a 12 pack every year.

Grand Design owners forum

Not sure if this has been posted before or not but there is a fairly new Grand Design owners technical forum in which GD participates. I just joined so not sure of the details but a nice gesture on part of GD I would think. https://gdrvowners.com/AboutUs There is also a different GD owners forum which has been around a while. Not supported by GD.
