RE: Future Used RV Market

It would be interesting to survey the commercial campgrounds to determine how full their year round “camping” sites are. As I travel around I see a lot of TT’s (and other types) parked on land next to a house with all indications that someone is living in it full time. When I was going through rehab for a back issue, one of the therapists mentioned she just moved into a TT as it was what they could afford. I also see a lot of young families living in larger MH’s as the have jobs that allow them to work from anywhere they can get reliable internet access. So many purchases of “RV’s” are not for “recreation”, nor are they bought for their “vehicle” capabilities.

RE: Bought a 2000 Airstream Land Yacht

Years ago, perhaps in 02-03, we bought a ‘94 33’ LY and really like the quality of the interior build and layout. Unfortunately for us it was NOT well maintained and the dealer was not too interested in bringing the faults to our attention. Just poor or inadequate maintenance not the fault of Airstream. Unless you have already done so, I’d get an independent mechanic check out that 20 yo chassis. Check for signs of leaks, and make sure the rooftop AC unit(s) are properly sealed and bolts tight. Check age of tires.

RE: Winter Camping in Myrtle Beach

Brookgreen Gardens. They have awesome Christmas lights and is well worth a daytime visit as well. Agree. Been there many times.

RE: Air bags on a Class A gasser

Might be helpful to know what chassis you’re looking asking about. Ford/Chevy/Workhorse.

RE: Draining hot water tank

I do know that Suburban states to drain the water heater when not going to be used for a while.

RE: Is it a battery and what I think is for?

Does the RV have an Gen Autostart if the main/house battery gets weak? Could this battery be just to start the gen when main won’t do?

RE: everyday truck ideas needed

Anyone know (for sure) if any all electric car or truck will be flat towable or or even dollied? I suspect one will need to use a trailer to tow an all electric.

RE: Newmar Gas and Diesel Opinions

We have a 2016 Newmar Baystar Sport 3004 (a one year model) and so far after almost 25k miles the Ford V10 chassis has been close to perfect in regards to dependability. Has plenty of power, can be a bit noisy when going up hills as it down shifts but overall good stuff. On another forum there is a separate section for improving the ride on a Ford F53 chassis ranging from minor to really spending a lot of money. We did the former and are pleased. We have found the fit and finish superior to what we saw in the similar sized Winnebago. As compared, we found the Winnies a bit blah. I am a bit concerned that the recent buyout, Winnebago will bring the quality of Newmar more in line with Winnebago. Not that Newmar is great at QA, as ours had a number of issues when delivered but they were good at resolution. Hope this helps.

RE: New laptop?

Ok you tekkies I need some advice. My laptop is very old. Now use my IPhone for about everything. I want a new laptop that I can use to ‘surf the web’, use Tax Act for taxes, maybe to type a letter or something now and then, and maybe be able to check emails on my hotmail and gmail accounts. I’m seeing some in the mid to low $100’s. Is there something I need to look for to be sure I can do these things? Everything you want to do can be done on your iPhone, but I suspect it’s a bit too small for doing them comfortably. If I were you (and I already made the transition) I’d go get an iPad. The IPad and IPhone work well together, sync all kinds of stuff between them, and no more Windows required. Both my wife and I have them, we share calendars between them, and do everything on them. We also both have some older Microsoft Surfaces which gather dust from lack of use. I use mine once a year to use my tax software and then it goes back into the closet.

RE: crank up antenna won't crank up

I’d try to find out why the crank up wouldn’t crank. If it’s a Winegard it’s the absolute best of a mediocre bunch. Have you lubed it lately? There is an annual maintenance procedure that should be followed.

RE: frustrated with booking

The smaller CG didn’t have to sell to the big (bad?) larger company. Could be the CG was in financial straits for any number of reasons, and the only way it could stay in business was to be absorbed into the larger company. Perhaps it was a good way to keep all the CG employees employed.

RE: Atlanta to Grand Canyon with 10 days

Celebrating a 30th anniversary inside a truck for three straight days each way will truly be memorable. You may not need to get a card for your 31st!

RE: Pine trees and slides ??

So perhaps you should rethink your decision on slide toppers. ??

RE: Water left in Suburban water heater - UPDATE!

My manual says to drain the tank when not in use. I don’t do that every time so when I do white specs of stuff comes out. Once the thing is drained I flush it out then reinstall the anode rod. That hole may be inviting for critters you don’t want in your water.

RE: Reverse Polarity code When Plugging in at Home

Call an electrician and have them check the wiring.

RE: Oil change question

I wouldn’t change it but I’d probably drive every few months and run the generator while doing so.

RE: 50 Amp service question

If both ac’s are on one leg and everything else is on the other you should be ok as long as you’re plugged into a 50 amp post. The question I have is what happens when you’re limited to 30.

RE: Solution to Trash Left Behind!

Part of the problem is a cop has to see someone throw out the trash. Chances of that happening is really slim. I live on a main road and nary a day goes by that I don’t have to pick up someone’s discards.

RE: This cartoon sums it up for Canadians

I think it says more. Since they can’t travel from Canada to Florida, they bring Florida to Canada by TV.

RE: Dry Camping - Heat with Propane, or electrically w/Inverter?

My rule of thumb is save your batteries for those items that require electricity, use propane where it is optional. Heating anything with electricity is a big power draw. Something to consider is if you heat with electricity and if cold enough to freeze will your storage area get heat.
