RE: Valve extenders safe?

I have used the braided hose and the extenders, never a problem. Yeah, me too.

RE: Tire inflation

Not the same but, but my opinion is to use what is on the sticker. IF you find the ride not to your liking, you can get the mh weighed and adjust pressures to what the tire manufacturer says is required to handle the weight.

RE: Rubber roof cleaning

Dawn will clean it, but it also can remove wax on the sides of the RV. Spic and Span is good. For the mold/mildew, add some Clorox bleach to the bucket of wash water. ( I use a 2 gallons yard sprayer). Spray it on the roof, use a medium bristle brush to scrub, not too hard. Let it rest for 10-15 minutes for the bleach to work, rinse it off, really well. Go over the heard to clean spots.

RE: Rheem Hot Water Heater

Only takes a few minutes to burn out an element with no water in the heater.

RE: Dometic AC

All of those little round return ducts should have a filter in them. If not you can make some from window AC foam filters, or call Newmar parts and get some. If you DON’T have filters in them now, you aight also want to have the AC cleaned. BTW... Just grab the center section of the round vent covers and pull straight down. Incase my using the “All” is confusing, just those that are returns need filters.

RE: Refrigerator Outside Vents

Good catch. Just goes to show not everyone takes pride in their work.

RE: atwood water heater

You should put the plug back in if for no other reason than to keep spiders and other creepy crawling things out. Less likely during wintertime but you never know.

RE: Front AC and Microwave won't work on Generator power.

I’d check the breakers on the gen.

RE: Winnie to Purchase Newmar

Well lets hope that Winnebago lets well enough alone.

RE: atwood water heater

What you MAY have there is an add-on heating element (Hott Rod ?), replaced the normal drain plug, and should have a switch to turn it on/off somewhere. Just where is/was up to whomever installed it. These are low wattage elements so won’t affect overall current draw that much. These elements are good for normal hot water usage, but as they are low wattage, takes a bit to warm the water to the set temperature. In which case you can have both the electric element on AND use the gas option at the same time. As far as winterizing the wh you should be able to removed the element to drain the tank. Just make sure the power is off to the element.And of course, make sure there is water in the tank before turning it on.

RE: Vent fans and a/c at the same time

Stirring the air is a good idea. A couple of fans is a good idea. The AC system in RV’s is a closed system just like pressing Recirc on the dash AC system in your car. If you turn on a powerful exhaust fan to send air out from inside the RV that air has to come IN from somewhere. That air will be warmer than any air going out the top. It MAY help raise the vent cover a smidge to allow hot air to naturally escape, but don’t use the fan.

RE: Leveling Jacks pro & con

I’m not sure you can make a case for spending the money based on your experience with a 22 footer. 26 isn’t much longer and you’ve stayed at places where even leveling blocks aren’t needed. Now, we are in a 31 foot class A and find them very handy and uses them all the time. Wouldn’t have a mh without them.

RE: Plan B ..January travel thru the South

We rarely have issues getting camping spots during the winter months, especially during the week. We mostly use the state parks which are really nice along the coast. Can’t speak for the mega sized commercial parks such as Ocean Lakes as never been except to check them out. Not our cup ‘o tea.

RE: TT storage out of state of residence

In that case call your insurance agent. Plus have you checked that you can register the RV in AZ and leave it in OK? I'm sure AZ won't care. Yeah but OK might.

RE: Diminshed Value Claims

So what kind of damage was sustained in the first place? How much less in value (perceived) has the rig incurred? These things have very poor resale value as it is, so how much worse could the “fender bender” make it?

RE: Slide Out Making Banging Sound

Might help to know what brand/type slide mechanism you have. Could there be a tooth of a cog wheel broken if it exists?

RE: “I was shocked with just how white it was there,” she said.

I agree that having a management group representative of the employees of a company makes good sense. Just have a hard time figuring out I guess is what they could possibly do to persuade/encourage people who choose not to camp to camp. How do you change the activity of camping to be more attractive to a particular ethnic group? What a load of poop. The cost of camping is dirt cheap. The cost of glamping is not. Those that feel they want to camp can, those that don’t won’t. There is no need for inclusiveness however if the industry want to alter their marketing to include a higher percentage of minority actors, fine with me. Heck from where I sit the mh industry has done a great job of adding “bling” based on some of the ones I’ve seen lately. What could KOA possibly do to attract black people to their campgrounds that would not be considered pandering or racist? Mexicans? Have a dress like a Mexican day, festival? Not in today’s world. She is literally saying the opposite. Not pandering to blacks, but having actual representation at the corporate level. It's an real thing, you know. Companies with diverse management teams have higher profits. But this is obviously not the forum for this, lol.

RE: “I was shocked with just how white it was there,” she said.

I would bet the RV industry is a shining star compared to the recreational boating industry. Heck my next door neighbors are a mixed couple the man being black. They have plenty of “toys”. Harley’s, Corvette, 2 boats ( one really nice one). They could afford a nice RV but they choose not to. I asked him once about RVing and his response was why would I want to do that? It wasn’t a long discussion.
