RE: portable water softener

I have used the Flow-Pur 10,000 grain softener for years and I am very happy. It only takes 2# of table salt and a funnel to put it in without a mess. Let the salt water mix sit for 5 minutes and then do a slow rinse for 20 minutes and you are good to go for about a month (somewhat less in really hard water areas) or about 1000 gallons of water usage. We are wintering in Yuma and installed a Flow-pur 10,000 about two weeks ago. Unbelievable how much better the water is. Should have purchased one years ago.

RE: Seasonal RV Security?

If you purchase in a manufactured home park you are probably about as safe as you can get. Keep some kind of heat on and hook up a light to a timer. Your bigger problem as mentioned is the dampness and salt air. Several years ago we built a house on the Oregon coast on which we installed a metal front door. Before we could finish the house the front door rusted through and the door handle fell off. Prior to that we had a mobile home on the coast. The first year we did not keep heat on and when we went down to use it had mushrooms growing in the carpet.

RE: ? Which Resale Campground Membership to get ?

Be extremely cautious about buying into a membership campground. Several years ago we bought a Western Horizons Campground membership. At the time we bought they had 22 parks and said they were adding more. What they really did was collect our dues while selling off the parks. At least two of the parks were actually just sold off to the son of the owner removing them from the membership unless we wanted to rejoin the (new) parks. Not saying all campground memberships are crooked but, if you see the name Loken as an owner anywhere run.

RE: New A/C's cheaper from sites other than camping world...

Almost everything is cheaper on Amazon than it is at Camping World or from most any other physical store. Amazon sells over the internet, so very low overhead and in many cases the product is shipped from the manufacturer rather than from their warehouse.

My coach came stock with one. I only use it when the distance to the sewer is too far away for me to use my slinky, It seems to work fine but takes too long for normal dumping at a dump station as far as I am concerned. I have have already had to replace the impeller in mine once not a fun job.

RE: Sheepdog needs help

Looks like she applied for a government position she was not really qualified for.

RE: Craigslist MH for sale - is this common?

Send them an e-mail saying that you are out of the country but you are sending them a check for more than the purchase price. They need to refund you the extra and you will have someone come by to pick up the motorhome immediately on receiving their monies.

RE: waste smell in the RV

Not enough information. Parked, on the road, certain area in the coach, windows open/closed, after dumping, etc. Verify that it is not coming from your battery compartment as a battery off gassing smells like sewer gas.

RE: Need help/advice finding INTERMITTENT water line leak

Were you using a water pressure regulator. Thinking perhaps too much pressure. You might try putting newspapers around then shaking the pipes to see if anything drips.

RE: 12 volt to 120 volt ground

I would Not connect those two grounds together. For 12 volt ground I would use the chassis if you can not find the ground wire. That would be my preference.

RE: Tire chains questions

Only time I ever considered putting chains on an RV was years ago with a 25 ft class A going North from Susanville CA to I5. Snow was getting deep enough it was hard to see the road, stepped on the brakes to pull over to put on chains and back end tried to pass front end, Changed mind and kept going. No problem weight was enough to keep us out of trouble and we made it with no problems.

RE: How Long to Wait

If they treat you that way before the sale just think how they will treat you when you need warranty work done. Find another dealer.

RE: An idea for rv park owners in parts of Texas flooded

Between FEMA and the swarm of workers coming in to rebuild there will be no sites available for a long time. The big question is; where will all the winter Texans go?

RE: 1994 Rexhall Aerbuss 36ft tag axel

Unable to comment on the condition of the one you are looking at but, I had a 1998 Aerbus XL32 which was probably the most trouble free motorhome I have ever owned. If it had come with slides I might still own it.

RE: Prescription medications 90 day rule: What to do?

If you are going to Yuma and crossing into Algodones; don't count on getting any prescription drugs that are not highly used. They only seem to carry the every day medications all us old people use. Wife uses a formulation drug for her diabetes which none of the pharmacies carry.

RE: Flat towing 2003 Ford Explorer sport trac

The tow kit is nothing more than an LED light, a plug, a template for mounting the gizmo, and the safety stickers. Basically the dealer plugs the Neutral Tow Kit into a socket under the dashboard, and then they ”flash” the vehicle’s computer to tell the 4 wheel drive transfer case to shift into neutral when you step on the brake pedal and push the 4×4 button, with the transmission in neutral.
