RE: Trion V10

I have owned 3 V10 engs and in my opinion. the V10 eng is the best gas eng that I have ever owned. I go back to the Model A age and have owned many vehicles.

RE: I just got the new RV Magazine

I still have over 2 yrs left on my subs so I called and was told I could stop my sub but could not get my left over sub back. I told her I guess I would keep it and donate. I started my sub away back, prob 30 yrs ago or so. I have most of the back issues in my garage

RE: Cannot open grey or black tank

Thanks, everyone for your suggestions. She had several RV Guys check the problem out and said it would be $250 to $325 and would have to be towed into their shop. Her truck was wrecked so she has no transportation, she is disabled, does not have a pot to pixx in until the 10th of Jan when she gets a check. Thanks all. Happy New Year

RE: Cannot open grey or black tank

First question: What's the recent weather? If it's been well below freezing, it could simply be that they are frozen. If that's the case, once it's warmed up, they should work again. As someone else mentioned, it's odd that both failed simultaneously. Really with the remote valves, you have to open up the bottom to get at them. Sometimes, they will have a cover you can remove to get at them. Once you get at them, it's pretty straight forward to unbolt and not to expensive to is a messy nasty job...particularly if the tanks are full. Not that it helps but I really dislike the remote valves for just this reason. Much better to have everything right there where you can get at it. The Travel Trailer is and has been in Yuma Az for the last 6 months in storage. The plumber cut a large section of sheet metal trying to get to the valves and gave up and said to call a RV Place that works on RVs. So that is what she is against at this time. I am out of the picture as I am just the owner of the property that she is renting

RE: Cannot open grey or black tank

Thank you all, I will pass the info on. The first person I called yesterday was a plumber who tried for an hour which I paid for. He tried drilling a hole etc. The caps were off. I really feel sorry for the lady plus she has broken ribs, no transportation, very little money, and Christmas time. My wife called Helping Hands but they are off until Jan 4th

Cannot open grey or black tank

A Lady rented one of my RV Sites yesterday here in Yuma and when she tried to empty her tanks the handle that you pull out would not budge. I tried pulling each handle and I could not pull it open. I called a friend and he tried and could not open either one. I called another friend and he could not get either one to open. The Lady just arrived here two weeks ago and a drunk driver hit her p/up and totaled it. No insurance by either her or the drunk driver. She had PLPD only. She is 60 and very little money. Every thing from the handle back is built in or covered, not easy to get to. Anyone have any suggestions how to get the handles to move as they should? She needs help as she does not know anyone here as does not have transportation or very little money as she just got out of an abusive relation

RE: Motor Home or Toy Hauler

I talked to my Daughter today and informed her of a Forest River Wildwood with 2 bed rs,bath and half. Right at 40 ft. 6ft9in inside. She loved the model. Money is no problem as they made a fortune in the stock market and are selling there home in NY for nearly 2 million. I have 5 acres that they can park there RV or Grand S has 4+ acres that they can use.My SIL said a Dealer told him a 3/4 P/Up would pull a Toy Hauler with 2 BR etc , no problem. I told him no way, not safely

RE: Motor Home or Toy Hauler

Thanks for the replys. My SIL has never towed anything other than a small trailer with a MC in the trailer and dump runs. My Daughter has never camped much except with us, her parents when she was young. He has a new 1/2 ton Dodge diesel which he loves but will buy a one ton dually to tow with. Someone told me about the Forest River Wildwood. I called and he said the Hideout has 2 bed rs and a bath and half. That sucker is 40 ft long!It is a TT 6ft9in height inside which would work for SIL at 6 ft 5. I will call and let them know about it

Motor Home or Toy Hauler

My Daughter and SIL are both retiring soon and moving from NY to Calif to be near her family. They will be buying a house in the Sac Ca area but so far can not find what they want. SIL thinks they should buy a Toy Hauler since he is 6ft 5 and he thinks the MH Class a is not tall enough for him. This will be just to live in while they find a Home to buy.They will not haul any toys in the Toy H just them selfs and 2 big dogs. Now she said she wants 2 bed rooms since he snores plus 2 bath rs. Is this possible? Dont they have some MHs with tall ceilings? Forget the 2 bath rms? They both want "new" whatever they buy. I think they are crazy but that's just me

RE: Park models

I have had many Park Models in the 20 yrs that I have been in the rental business and I have only owned one Park Model that had a slide out. Actually it had 2 slide outs. It was a older model. All my Park Models are 400 sf

RE: Advice on RV "carport"

I screwed up by having a 12 x 30 ft steel cover put up. I had a 24 ft Class C at the time with no slides. After a yr or so we wanted something bigger, bought a 34 ft 5th w with slide. then I had the length extended by 10 ft, had to raise the top by 2 ft. I still cannot hardly park the RV since I have to have the drivers side 2 to 3 inches from the side of the cover in order to open the door to the RV as it has extra wide door. Make sure you have it wide enough in order to stay in it in emergency. Wide enough to open the slides, tall enough in case you buy a bigger, taller RV

RE: Best Weight Distribution Hitch

But the really best is the Hensley for weight distribution AND anti-sway. The design eliminates sway not just dampens it. I have a Hensley and do not care for it, two much trouble to hook up. I now use the 4 point Equilzer and love it

RE: Hughes autoformers

I use both an autoformer followed by an EMS. With more and more larger units(two or three ac units) in campgrounds, voltage goes low a lot more often than people realize. I feel like I'm protected from both low and high voltage. I couldn't make a choice of one or the other. I do the same. I used the autoformer for several yrs than I bought the EMS and use both

RE: Swapping out my jackknife sofa for recliners

How about using a strap across both , anchored to 2 points , one on each side. That might offer you another point to secure them other than the thin luan. That is exacle what we did. The recliners are so much better than the jack knife couch. It was a little hard for me to take the couch out as I am 82 yrs old but I got it done

RE: Travel into Canada

Back in the 60s the wife ,5 kids and I traveled to Vancover Canada and I had my 45 hid in underware in the cupboard in the TT. They never found it. I did not even think about it until we got back to the States. I was lucky.
