RE: pressure washers

Can you adjust the psi on electric power washers so it's not as strong?

pressure washers

Do any of you use a pressure washer to clean your RV? Is it harsh on the finish and decals? Seems like it would be useful to wash an RV, especially when you don't want to climb a tall ladder. I noticed one of the Black Friday flyers has one advertised at a good price.

toilet treatment for black water tank

We have a perpetual problem of black water tank indicator showing it's full even after emptying tanks. From what I've read, I think sensors may not be working properly for a variety of reasons. Just purchased a small container of Starbrite toilet treatment to help with odors and keep drain valves from sticking. Any one ever use this product, and does it have to be put in just before using RV? Right now my Jayco is sitting in our driveway and we may not be able to use it for one or two weeks.

RE: Do you recommend unhitching the dinghy over Monarch Pass?

I thought I would post an update to my question concerning Monarch Pass. We successfully drove it a few days ago--with our toad disconnected. It was slow driving, but we survived! It was definitely worth doing. Thanks for the encouragement and advice.

RE: Supplemental Brake... Necessity or Preference

We have the Ready Brute Elite tow bar with built-in braking system. In my opinion, it is a cleverly designed system, but it is not trouble free. Before our last trip, we noticed that the cable loop (is it called thimble?) where the breakaway system connects to car was broken and had worked itself back into car. Also, the plastic bumper pulls out when the ready break cable is activated and pulls the thimble forward. Our toad is a Honda CR-V and I wonder whether it is a good choice for their system, although the owner said they've successfully done several installations on CR-Vs. The upshot is we will have to take our motorhome and toad back to Iola, Kansas to be worked on. I don't know what others do who live in states far away. Perhaps there are installers nearby to correct any problems. The Ready Break system is a good one, but it requires upkeep like other motorhome products and accessories.

Montrose to Ouray

We will be driving a 32' Class C with a dinghy. What is 550 like from Montrose to Ouray? We plan to camp in Ouray and then use our CR-V to continue on 550 to see other beautiful sights.

Do you recommend unhitching the dinghy over Monarch Pass?

We will be vacationing in southcentral and southwest Colorado. We drive a Class C and pull a Honda CRV. I've heard Highway 50 and Monarch Pass can be challenging for those not used to mountain driving. Is it recommended to unhook the dinghy and drive them separately over Monarch? Thank you for your advice.

South Fork, CO. campgrounds

There are many RV parks and campgrounds in South Fork, CO. area. Any favorites that you have?

RE: Traveling without a car

Yes, the Wanderlust park is great! Next time you're in Weatherford stop by the Gen. Thomas Stafford Air and Space Museum.

RE: Drop Hitch Receiver

I bought a Blue Ox drop receiver rated for 5000 lbs. The curb weight of the Honda CRV is about 3500 lbs so I should okay. We'll try not to load it down too much. The 4" is perfect for the drop needed. I measured good! Thanks for the advice.

RE: Traveling without a car

I just had some inspiration! We could plan our trip to go by a nearby RV repair place, pay someone $20 or so to help us hook up our toad, then be on our merry way. At our destination we can disconnect ourselves. When it's time to go, we can probably find someone (park employee or friendly camper) to help us connect again, give them a little spending money or some beer and then off we go! Wash and repeat! Do you think this will work?

Traveling without a car

How many of you travel in a motorhome without towing a car? Due to some health issues we are no longer able to dinghy tow our car. We would like to take a long trip in our motorhome to New Mexico, Colorado or Arizona. I do not want to drive a separate vehicle. Are there campgrounds that provide transportation to sights of interest. We will also have to rent a car but I would like to keep those costs down as much as possible. We are really open to going anywhere but do not want to stay in temps. above 95. Thank you.

Drop Hitch Receiver

We tow our Honda CRV with a Ready Brute elite tow bar. The tow bar setup worked fine with our first motorhome. Now that we have a new MH, we notice that the tow bar slopes downward toward the CRV. I estimate a 4" difference in height. There are a number of drop receiver hitches on the market, but I don't know which one would work best. I'm also concerned about the extra inches added between the motorhome and the towed car. What should I look for in buying an adapter? Thank you.

Rent a tow dolly?

We're interested in towing a car with a dolly, but don't want to buy a dolly until we find out if it's something we can do. Would renting one from U-Haul be a good way to practice using a tow dolly before making the plunge?

RE: Beware of credit card scam

Yes. They charged us $20, which was the price of the tickets for getting into the show, and then one week later they charged us $14.

Beware of credit card scam

This is the time of year people attend RV shows to see the latest models. Just wanted to make people aware of some fraudulent activity going on with one particular vendor. We purchased two tickets for a total of $20 at the door for a weekend RV show in Oklahoma City. The vendor was State Fair Park of Morrisville, N.C. and we used our credit card. One week later our Discover card was charged by this same vendor, for $14. I filed a dispute with the credit card company and am waiting for results of their investigation. Just thought people should be aware.
