RE: Dumb Things We Did as Kids on 4July

I was about 11 and the next door kid was about 1 year older and his bright idea was to take empty 22 cal bullet shells he got from somewhere and take those wooden matches, snap the match head off and cram as many as possible into the empty shell. Once we got that shell packed, stand it upright and smack it with a large hammer. It gave a loud SNAP like a gun shot sound.That worked well for about 5 or 6 times, then one of the brass shells blew apart shooting a piece of brass into my forearm. Told my mom I caught it on a nail, she pulled the piece out and put a butterfly bandage on and doused it with that stuff that stung like heck. No more banging bullet shells while I finished growing up...could have been WAY worst than the small hole I got.

RE: Looking for 5 star RV Park

If northern Michigan is in your travels here is a unique park that will fit the bill, paved roads, paved 100 ft long sites, grass that is cut weekly, heated pool and hot tub, not very far from town. Very clean and well run park that many folks have purchased sites, some rent them out. Have a Look Pere Marquette Oaks

RE: Where have all the members gone on this forum?

I'm still here since Feb of 2004, check in just about everyday, used to try to post something helpful, or maybe try to correct some info given in error by someone. But over the years, seems my thoughts are not needed as others have jumped in before me and I don't feel the need to confirm someone's post just to get another of my posts seen. So just because you don't see a post doesn't mean we are not out here lurking!!

RE: Teton 5th Wheel

I helped a guy once when his one side jack failed and the front of the 5th wheel trailer nosed down. I used a 4x4 on a 5 ton floor jack and put that 4x4 right at the pin and pushed up allowing the nose to lift so we could get some other boards under the front frame work near that failed jack. He was able to then dig a hole under that failed jack to remove it and get it rebuilt. Where in Arizona are you?

RE: Yuma

How about stopping into Araby Acres in Yuma and give us a report as I booked the month of Feb at that park. From the reviews I saw it appears to fit the needs we have for that months stay. They do have nightly rates for your short stay. Hope you have an enjoyable trip.

RE: Tires for Travel Trailer in Port Huron Area

Drive down I-94 to Harrison Township and see Leslie Tire, [email protected] 586-463-0922. I had them do tire replacements on a couple of RV's for me over the years when I lived close to there. They are equipt to do the job correctly.

RE: We all use different ways.

To the folks who just showed up in the 43ft $200,000 fifth wheel, that costs double my house. you have a beautiful rig. To the folks who are down in the woods in a bivvy tent, you guys are hard core, awesome setup down there. To the folks who just pulled in with their 1979 c class with more rust than panel. I can only imagine the memories you’ve made in that thing. I bet that dent has a story. To the folks that took that last site that nobody wanted you pulled in, put down the seats in their mini van, and started cooking. Your dinner smells delightful. Y’all, we all camp differently, and we may not agree on it all, but we have to remember the only thing that matters is memories are being made, and you’re getting 120% out of your time with your loved ones. You have to forget HOW you go camping, and remember WHY you go camping. THAT is camping my friends. Spread love at the campground this season. What a great post, I think you hit the nail right on the head as we all enjoy the way we travel, that is the reason we do it.

RE: secureing sofa in slide

We just removed the sofa from our rig and it was held down to the wooden flooring with lag bolts. Then there were large bolts for the seat belts that went into steel framing.I would use some way to secure the unit to the floor.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Oh My, that looks like a delay in production is coming your way? Hope that is not as serious as it looks.

RE: Best Class A fire extinguisher

I carry 4 fire extinguishers of various types, but recently had the PROTENG supression system installed in my 40 ft Tiffin Bus. The install was very well done and it is costly, but should give us time to exit the rig should or if we have a fire. At least that is the plan. You can watch the videos and see how it operates Here

RE: Buying a fifth wheel with a tow vehicle.

I purchased a combo from a couple out of California, medium duty truck and 5th wheel, they purchased both units new. I flew in from Detroit, bought them and drove them back to Michigan. Years later I sold the combo to one person. Bought them right as a combo, and sold them right as a combo. If you kind of know what it is your looking for and are able to wait for the right one, they can be found.

RE: Diesel pusher guys …which boost and EGT gauges ?

I have the Scan Gauge and find it very informative over the factory gauges that don't monitor as many items as the Scan Gauge. Very easy to install and no tools needed.

RE: finding value for the RV

Years ago when I was involved with the credit union we always kept up to date NADA books for values so we knew what we wanted to loan on vehicles. That would be free to you to ask, I would not even think you needed to be a member.

RE: SS TracBar Install (F53)

When I had that chassis under my motorhome at that time, I had the jacks down to crawl under and loosely install the track bar. Then once it was basicly on, raised the jacks and then tightened it all down. Made a HUGE difference in how secure the MH drove when pulling my car. Was a good investment for me, hope youy like it too.

RE: Tucson AZ area recommendations?

I tried to get into the KOA in Tucson with a 40 ft motorhome for Thanksgiving, told no space but maybe if you have something shorter might be worth a try. It is a nice park and we enjoy being there when we can get in.

RE: Fleetwood/Flexsteel Seat Covers

When did this happen? I tried to get replacement covers last year from Tiffin and was told they were not made anymore and find some other way to get the covers made. Ended up getting them recovered by a trim shop, pretty expensive. Have a 2011 Tiffin Allegro Open Road with the same problem as you, peeling of our front captain chairs. Tiffin customer service was outstanding - they have sent complete replacement covers, once installed (minimal cost) look like new. All replacements came to me free of charge. Yahoo

RE: Campground availability for next summer

Used to full time and was out there for 8 years, never really had any issues finding spots to camp. Always used private rv parks. Got off the road for 10 years and are now going out for 3 or 4 months at a time. I have found with a 40 ft rig like we own now, we have to plan way ahead in calling for spaces for us. Parks seem to have spots for shorter units, but once you have a larger rig it can get harder. Leaving in 2 weeks for a 1000 mile drive, need 4 parks to get to the place we will sit for a while. Ended up calling 7 parks before I got the 4 spots needed.
