RE: No RV Casino parking in Reno Nevada

We will be passing through there in the next month or so. Don;t plan on leaving any of my money there.

No RV Casino parking in Reno Nevada

Looks like Reno is once again enforcing the no overnight rv parking ban. They started this a few years ago but backed down when RV owners started boycotting Reno. Received this email today from my son who is on his way back to Oregon from Las Vegas. "Made it to the Atlantis, but were promptly asked to leave by security. They were handing out tow notices citing some city ordinances about overnighting in rv's in Reno. Lucky for us Baldini's is in Sparks! Plus they have eggs, bacon and endless pancakes for 2.99. " Just say no to Reno. Evidently they don't need our money.

RE: How to chang my oil in my 2004 C7 Cat 330

You don't list a coach name so location or the oil filter will vary. Mine have always been up inside the frame rails close to the engine and there will be only one oil filter. Depending on the manufacturer of your coach you will also have one or two fuel filters. The oil filter is large and you will need a big strap wrench in order to get it off. When I changed my antifreeze on my Cat there were drain points in the hoses running up to the heater core in the front of the coach and I used those to drain my system.

RE: Weed, Ca to Kamloops, BC

If you take I5 you can route around Portland by using I205. You still would want to avoid rush hour though.

RE: Black Tank Question

You can do it as long as you don't get distracted and forget to turn it off. Don't ask how I know this.

RE: Tucson area to Show-Low, best route

We have done Tucson to Globe to Payson to Show Low. Not a bad way to go and only 280 miles. It is about 90 miles further than through Salt River Canyon.

RE: Looks Like I was Scammed by Camping World

One of my biggest gripes on this and other forums is, when people post a problem and then never return to give an update. Hey, Camping World resolved a problem to my satisfaction; people should know that they really made the effort.

RE: Looks Like I was Scammed by Camping World

Update: This morning Terry the manager of the Wilsonville Oregon Camping World contacted me and we were able to come to what I feel is an equitable agreement. There was no arguing or anything. I ended up spending a little more money than I originally anticipated but, in the end I have a brand new higher quality tow bar for slightly less than what Camping World has to pay Roadmaster for it. I am happy with the resolution and want to say thanks to Terry, Mark F and Marcus' Rapid Response Team.

RE: How many miles can you expect to put on a CAT 3126?

Not using it will cause it to fail more often than heavy usage.

RE: Looks Like I was Scammed by Camping World

When the vendor for a product states emphatically that they will not install something on your vehicle even if you were to sign a release form and that you must upgrade; You too would be led to believe that maybe they know what they are talking about. I stated "looks like I was scammed" because I have to wonder if the salesman maybe works on commission. I took his word for something I should have gone home and checked on because we were in a hurry to get on the road. Camping World is one of the main vendors for Roadmaster products and the display of tow bars was directly in front of the sales desk where I went for help. This and the fact that he stated he was being sent to Arizona to train personnel there, all led to a false impression that the salesman was knowledgeable on the product.

RE: Looks Like I was Scammed by Camping World

Perhaps rather than being "ripped off" the fellow at CW simply made a mistake. Calling them and asking for a remedy in a non-accusatory way may net you an easy fix. You may be right, I am a little hot under the collar at the moment. However the Stowmaster 5000 has already gone to a new home so I can't return the Falcon. Unless they want to give me my money back and let me keep the Falcon, I spent a lot of money I did not need to or want to spend. I really am not too sure it was a mistake. You would think if the sales person was so adamant about what I needed to purchase that he would also be familiar with the Stowmaster 5000 since I also purchased that from that Camping World a few years ago. Also he was bragging about how the company was sending him to Arizona to train store personnel in a couple of days from then.

RE: Looks Like I was Scammed by Camping World

Look it up, the Stowmaster 5000 is rated at 6000 pounds Stowmaster 5000 specs. Funny thing is in checking the 2014 Explorer is even a little lighter than our 08 was and they had no problem installing the base plates on the 08 when it was new.

Looks Like I was Scammed by Camping World

Recently I replaced my 2008 Ford Explorer toad with a new 2014 Ford Explorer. Since the Camping World in Willsonville Oregon installed the base plates for our Roadmaster Stowmaster 5000 tow bar on the 08 I took the new Explore there to have new base plates installed. The sales person at the parts desk said he would have to check the weight of the new Explorer before he would sell me base plates and went to the parking lot where he looked at the door plate and said he could not sell me base plates for my Stowmaster 5000 since my new vehicle weighs too much. He then proceed to sell me a Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain tow bar including base plates and installation. During all this he was telling me what a great deal he was giving me what with the $39 dollar installations, my Good Sam discounts etc. When the ink was dry I was into this for $1470.07. Fast forward to today and I received my new copy of the 2014 Guide to Dinghy Towing published by Motorhome magazine. On page 5 is an ad for Roadmaster All Terrain tow bars that shows the Falcon All Terrain tow bar is rated at 6000 pounds. This is exactly the same rating as my Stowmaster 5000 which he refused to sell me base plates for. Looks to me like I was ripped off big time.

We always knew Pops was full of it. Now we know Calvin is too. Or at least was.

RE: Using an anchor

Just a thought but you mention having an anchor anchor rode guitar string taught. If it had pulled loose in water it would probably just bounce across the bottom. On a winch in open ground that anchor would probably be snapping back at you like a cannon ball. Snapping a winch cable can happen but I would bet pulling out the anchor would happen much more often. Don't think I would use this except in an extreme emergency.

RE: Dead Rat Odor Removal?

Locating the cause of the odor is the first line of business. After removing dead carcasses or what ever, look for a good ozone machine to rent or buy. I purchased one of these Industrial Ozone GeneratorThis is what many hotels and motels use to remove odors. Be sure to follow the safety precautions as breathing concentrated ozone is hazardous to your lungs.

I gather rocks then trip over them in the dark.

RE: Dead Rat Odor Removal?

If nothing else works try to locate a plumbing shop or other business that has a camera they can use to view the areas you can't access.
