RE: Stains under/on clear plastic "bra" thing

Well I too had a ugly looking front of the motorhome becasue the 3M film was failing. So started searching what I as the owner could do to remove that ugly stuff without it taking weeks of hard work. Bought some plastic razor blades and a holder, got out my heat gun and set it on low and bought Rapid Remover Adheasive Remover from Amazon. It said works in 60 seconds, and darn they are right, it works in 60 seconds to loosen and disolve a majority of the left over glue once the film is removed. I was unsure how much to buy so got the gallon, WAY too much stuff, a quart would be more than enough for any front end of a motothome. After the film and glue was off used a good cleaner wax to go over the paint, other than a few chips the paint was as close to perfect as it could be, I was very pleased that I did the clean up as opposed to the estimate i got of 1 Grand from a local fellow.

RE: MGVWR and problems titling trailer

Just an suggestion, since your right at the max load for the trailer to keep a close eye on your tire pressure, should be running the max cold tire pressure. Those tires will be working hard all the time.

RE: Ideas on selling Thousand Trails membership

We had a 1000 trails membership for about 10 or 11 years. Got our use and tried to list it for sale, at that time there was either a $500 or $750 charge for the new buyer to pay. Plus the yearly fee that seemed to be going up. After a few weeks of trying, I listed it for free to anyone wanting to step up and pay those acquisition fees. A couple that were just starting out on the full time lifestyle said heck yea, and they got it. Things may be different now, but that is what we did.

RE: Retile

Well would it be an issue, only way to really tell is to know what amount of weight would case an issue. Scales would tell you what your rig weights now, and then you figure how close you are to the gross allowable weight. If a couple of boxes of tile will put you at or over that number, then your stuck, NO. But it would be my guess would not make one bit of difference. They make a glue that the motorhome manufacturers are using so contacting them for what is best would be my suggestion.

RE: New to 5th wheeling

If you have never towed a 5th wheel trailer before, you might consider doing some basic practice in a large parking lot. Pick up some cone/cans or buckets as something to gage the way that new to you trailer will cut the corners. Lay the cones/buckets out as curbs and try to see if you can turn the corner without hitting them. When we first got a 5th wheel I hired a driving instructor to help teach us how to drive it safely. Don't know about the route your asking about but I think others will answer about that. Safe travels.

RE: Rooftop AC Unit Not Cooling Well

Way back when we had a travel trailer the roof a/c was to us pretty poor. Decided to remove the ceiling a/c cover and have a look. Seems a divider panel slipped out of the way allowing the hot return air to mix with the cold discharge air. Slid that divider back into place, used some aluminum tape to seal the various holes in the unit that would still let air to mix and wow it fixed the a/c unit. Might want to look into yours to just see if it was a simple slip of the divider. Good luck

RE: Holiday Rambler anyone?

Had a used 2018 Holiday Rambler 34 ft gas, it was as good as it could be. No major issue, very minor things I could adjust, tighten or screw back into place. The V-10 did a decent job of getting us up the mountains and down the hills pulling our Cadillac SRX. We did switch to a used 34 ft Tiffin Diesel liked that enough to move to a 40 ft. But totally different rigs. I did enjoy the HR and for the money it cost was a decent rig.

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

Joerg68, I agree. I for one have watched this thread from the very beginning and really would like to see the continuing saga all the way to the end.. Hoping that just some "life" got in the way and things will resume soon.

RE: Rv falls on its face after engine is warm

When I had a boat with 2 454's in it one engine ran perfectly the other stumbled and lacked power. So we figured fuel, checked everything and could not get the odd one to pull like the good one. One of the guys said lets put new plug wires on it, seemed like a waste to me but that was it. Never had backfiring, sputter or anything other than lack of power. So once that fixed it i also replaced the other motors wires, just in case.

RE: Valve stem extenders for inner wheels (DRW)

On the class C I purchased used had the braided extenders and one side leaked. Contacted the tire store locally to order actual valve stems that were longer and curvered to extend through the outside wheel so i could add air easily. No more leaks...

RE: Sewer smell

Scott G has it more than likely, those valves can really cause a stink. They unscrew easily and are not expensive.

RE: Under Counter Mounted Coffee Maker

We used the old Mr. Coffee uints for a long time, but for some reason the crummy roads we drive on would either crack the pot or it would end up bouncing from where it was and break. So we moved to the pot-less coffee unit, works so well we bought one for the house too. Brew Station

RE: Tire Pressure Monitoring System for FW

The TST system has been on every RV I have owned since 2004, upgraded a few times now with the color monitor. They supply the booster with a purchase and it will greatly enhance the signal to the receiver. Your 125 psi tires will go well over that when they get hot, so if you only buy a system that has a high reading of 125 psi your going to be very upset with the loud alarm going off all the time. I have owned both senders, the ones that flow through and the caps, prefer the cap style for ease of use and they sit closer to the wheel. Best of luck with whatever system you choose.

RE: Scotty at the DMV doesn't know!

WA8YXM was right on and quick too. Wonder why the guy who works there was unable to find that information.

RE: Insane first RV trip plan?

Well that is a lot of driving in a short time frame. I see about 2,000 miles each way, and if you drive every day that is about 140 miles per day. We are finding a difficut time to not have planned months ahead to get spots for the rv. Rv parks are busy and fill up quickly during the traveling season.

RE: Hensley Arrow tips

We loved our Hensley, and yes was a little bit of work to learn all the tiny things i could do to make it easier. We towed a 26 ft trailer behind my Dodge Durango, really hated how the old hitch made us feel squirley. I found by backing up to get the stinger just kind of setting in the Hensley, not locked down, and the truck backed up to almost touching the stinger, I could move the stinger out to the hitch opening to ensure i was level and able to just continue backing up. The stinger would not bind and slide right in. After a while i no longer needed the little trick of sliding that thing in or out to mate up. We would never own another travel trailer with out either a ProPride or Hensley. Good luck on your new wonderful hitch.

RE: Maaco

You would think anyone doing the same job over and over would become pretty good, and in some cases that is true with Macco. You have to somewhat lower your standards with their quality of workmanship. Dry spray areas, runs or sags and too heavy or maybe too light of paint has to be expected and in many cases just lived with when you leave. Will your car look better, probably, will it look like it was new, probaby not. But for the amount they charge, you are getting the job that money will buy, not much more. I stopped into the quality local shop near me and asked about repainting one of my cars, its a convertible and the price was starting at 10 grand.

RE: Corpus Christi / Rockport RV Parks

Magistic Oaks was really nice for us when we spent a month there, no cable TV but otherwise we enjoyed it. Did find another park a few miles away, a new place we probably would give a try called Reel Chill RV resort. Have a look on RV Park Reviews to see what others have said. Enjoy your trip.

RE: Flushing water heater

I made my own tube flusher when I had a water tank that needed to be drained. Garden hose pressure will work fine and allow that white calcium to wash out. You will be surprised on the amount you have laying in there.

RE: Need tire inflation by weight for Sunitomo 719 tire

Looks to me you can use the Goodyear tire pressure chart that shows your size tire up to 120 psi, it breaks it down to single or dual. Knowing the weights your coach weighs will allow you to set the correct tire pressues. Tire pressure guide
