RE: KM Resorts - what is going on??

Suspect this is a lot of BS just to get you to agree to a meeting where they will try to get you to upgrade your membership to a more expensive one. These type of scams have been going on as long as campground membership have been sold. Most times the people holding the meetings are not even directly employed by the company they claim to represent. Expect to hear things like "frozen dues" "earlier reservations" etc. We are members of three different membership campground chains and have received similar letters from each one however the part about coming to your home is something new. Then again these guys work on commission so no different than any other door to door salesman.

RE: I-15 Overnight Spot Between Barstow/Vegas?

We just stayed behind Buffalo Bills Casino in Primm NV right at the state line. When you get off the freeway turn right at the light and go around and to the back of the casino. Lots of room and if you park away from the trucks pretty quiet.

RE: Pink antifreeze turned purple

Any chance you have a carbon water filter in the line. Had one fail once and it turned my water black. Pink and black might show as purple.

RE: Rodent wiring destructon in Terra

Just a suggestion but before you get too carried away you might consider getting an inspection camera that you can stick through a small hole in the wall and see whats back there. You can find them pretty cheap at Harbor Freight

RE: New Toad?

Towing a 2014 Ford Explorer after replacing our 08 Explorer this spring. Biggest pain seems to be that we never experienced any problem with dead battery with the 08. The 14 just has too much electronics drawing on the battery and even though the manual says stop every six hours and start the engine I have found that is way too long and the battery will be dead. Finally broke down and added a dedicated charge line from the coach to the toad. The 14 is easier to set up for towing as it no longer needs to have the neutral tow switch installed. Ours is a key model rather than a push button start so I just put the transmission in neutral and turn the key to the #1 position. Watch which model you buy though as I believe the eco boost model is not towable.

RE: Hwy I-5 winter travel questions - Vancouver to Palm Springs

Oregon chain laws are very explicit. Carry chains for both the tow vehicle and also the trailer and use them if directed or face a pretty hefty fine. You can read more Here In Oregon your major passes on I5 to watch out for are Sexton Pass North of Grants Pass and naturally the Siskiyou's South of Ashland into California. The next area to watch is from Weed Ca South almost to Redding. After that it is clear sailing. We carry chains to meet the law but usually just lay over if it really looks like it is going to get bad.

RE: Slide out topper replacement

Suspect that both ways would work fine. One way requires more pressure to unroll and lock and probably requires two people to re install the fabric. The other way can be done by one person but requires removing the roller.

RE: Las Vegas RV storage

You might want to give the Oasis a call. I have not stayed there in a while but the last time I was there they were renting out storage and they are probably about as close to the airport as you are going to find.

RE: repairing hole in solid siding rv

Be sure and drill a hole at each end of the crack to stop it from traveling any further. If it is just a visible type crack you may want to open it up a little bit with a cutter then use fiberglass body putty to fill the area. sand, wet sand, then paint. Unless it was a large void I would probably not resort to using fiberglass tape as it will show unless you grind the surface low enough that you can bring everything back flush with your repair.

RE: Slide out topper replacement

Not sure why you had to unwind the roller tubes under tension. Pinned mine in place closed; then removed the roller. Unrolled from roller and removed topper from roller and roof channels. Installed in reverse order. Did all four of mine in about two hours by myself.

RE: Wrong Pump in AZ

So what are we supposed to do if not on the interstate so there is no truck stop? Does every station that has diesel have a special truck pump, or do they just charge you the extra tax?

RE: Kudos to Campers Inn for doing the right thing

That's great service and, they probably could not buy better advertising at any cost.

RE: discolored ceiling

Remove the inside cover and snug down the 4 bolts that hold the air conditioner to the roof. Do not over-tighten them as it will ruin the gasket.

It's bad luck to disturb a burial ground.

RE: Casino Route to Quartzsite

Rolling Hills casino in Corning CA. Take the Liberal Ave exit from I-5 S. They have a great buffet with a 50% discount on Tuesdays and Thursdays for 50+ seniors. Your choice of boondocking in the parking lot or they have an RV park.

RE: cant get fuel to filters after changing both on Cummins 8.1

First off the book basically lies. Best option is to plug the center hole and fill the filter with fuel before installing. Cycling the key on for about 20 seconds then off about 10 times may fill the filters. My last experience with this was not good as mine air locked and the only way I could get it to fire up was to pull the return line and plug it off while I cranked the engine as fuel would take the path of least resistance and just go from the tank and back through the return line and never enter the chambers. If it were my rig I would remove the filters fill them and try it. If it still did not start I would plug the return line. Be careful because if you crank the starter too long you will burn it up.
