RE: Bad sway from Toad

Is it possible the truck is just too big to be towed behind this short WB MH? Yes! ^^^^^^^^

RE: Let's talk dirt

I use a long handled brush with detergent to clean around vents, a/c etc. and power wash the rest.

RE: phone-based GPS

I think most folks who use GPS don't examine the route carefully before they set out. They just enter start and stop locations and blindly follow the route. When I plan a trip, after doing the above, I zoom in on the route and make changes to it as I deem necessary, such as bypasses or alternate routes. I DO use Co-Pilot on my tablet and have found it to be pretty accurate. However, there are times it will do goofy things, but having closely examined the route before hand, I make the necessary correction. It then corrects itself.

RE: Tow dolly or not?

Towed a RAV4 on a dolly for years and sway was NEVER a problem, even on my gasser in sig. Highly recommend a dolly with surge brakes as it does not require any electrical hookups.(except for lights) Just load and go.

RE: 1995 Bounder 34J capacities

THIS is what I found. Fresh: 100 gals Grey: 47 gals No black tank size, but would assume the same as grey.

The doors on my MH are FRP. Available at most big-box home stores.

RE: A Place to Stay

There's a Flying J at exit 173 that has RV parking. Plus, you have a Denny's for breakfast.

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

Looks like a perfect place to use biscuits. I have used biscuit joints over the years, even outdoor projects, with great success. And they are easy to make.

RE: No heat / Furnace not working

Are you hooked up to shore power? If not, your battery may be low. For the furnace to go on the fan must blow hard enough to operate the sail switch, which tells the furnace to ignite and that you have enough air to circulate the heat. Battery should be at least 12.3 volts.

RE: Nice Story fellow RVer

Your story gives me faith that there are still many good folks out there. Great story!

RE: Will Fed shutdown bar access to Nat Forests? Nat Parks?

You get what you vote for. I refuse to let politicians of any stripe determine how I live my life or determine when or where I go. Look up the definition of 'Federalism'.

RE: V10 misfire codes

How is the chassis battery/connections? When my battery started going south, I would get random multiple misfire codes for a short time after startup. New battery solved that.

RE: Power Mirrors Don’t Work!

Had an intermittent problem with my mirrors also. Turned out to be the aux power solenoid in the electric bay. Can be had at almost any auto parts store.

RE: Samsung smart tv

I bought a new Samsung last year and had the same problem, except I used it for streaming only. WIFI, No HDMI. Returned it and replaced with VIZIO. Great picture, but they have their own set of 'smart tv' problems.

RE: Fuel leaking from within the generator

Gravity feed or not doesn't matter. When parked on a angle. If the carb float is sunk or needle and seat are stuck open the fuel can syphon right out of the tank. Open up the generator remove the carb and re build it. Or take it to someone who can. ^^^^^ THIS ^^^^^

RE: Flying J Anomalies

Despite the odd issue at a few locations, we still like and frequent Flying J. They are our main go to when in need of fuel. Seldom go near regular gas stations as many are a distance off the interstate and due to risk of damage because of our size/length. X2.Not to mention all the other amenities FJ offers rv'ers you can't get at other stations.

RE: us 65 south from branson

If you're not in a hurry, take 65 south to Harrison Arkansas, then route 412 east. The road is a good 2-lane, twisty and hilly in the Ozarks, but quite doable with your setup. We did it in our 33 footer with toad and had no problems. Very scenic and relaxing and a lot of small towns. It eventually takes you to Jackson, TN where you can get on I40. We were heading to Birmingham, AL and took 2-lanes (can't remember routes) to Birmingham. Stayed off interstates as much as possible. Good Luck!
