RE: Maybe a new 5er.

You really expect to tow a 70s era 40 foot fifth wheel with a 250? Good luck my friend. Oh wait do you mean your budget is 70s? Thats a different ball game. But theres still no way your going to haul a 40 foot fiver with a 250. For that much your going to want a dually. Whats good? There mostly all the same. You might or might not get a good one from any mfg. But I would start looking at Northwood Mfg.

RE: Model Year Different From VIN

Vin numbers assigned by chassis manufacturer. There the ones thst determine year start dates. My guess, no mater what year it was build the chassis mfg lists it as a 96. Take the chassis vin to tour local GM dealer and ask them to run it for you.

RE: Portable DirecTV Antenna?

150 dollar trod and open faced oval dish most of the time. When possible I use my roof mounted Winegard Travler SK-SWM.

RE: Medium term storage

Uhh, why not take ypur mh to an area, setup camp and spend a week or two exploring the area and simply move on? We have had a lot of people park their RV in the park and leave for a few days for business out of the area. They tell us and we usually keep an eye on it.

RE: Removing Sharp Carousel Micro/convection

Removing microwaves is a straight foreword job. In the cupboard or cabinet above it you will find where it is plugged in. Unplug it. Next look, you will see two philips head screws on the floor or the cabinet. Remove them. Either have someone hold the microwave up or be prepared. They are heavy and akward. Once the screws are out, tip towards you to about 45 degrees and lift off the bracket. What you stated is true for a Stick home mount but it is MORE detailed on a RV mount. RV's they MUST install extra screws to secure the top of the M/W to the overhead cabinet. If they did not install those extra screws, the M/W would eventually crack the rear wall mount plate from vibration and the unit would fall off the wall. The only exception to those extra screws are M/W that have the 2 standard mount screws that come down from the top overhead cabinet into the top of the M/W, which usually is in Towables, not Motorhomes due to clearance issues. Doug Every RV microwave I have had to deal with are mounted exactly the same as household. The only exception MIGHT be one or two extra screws somewhere.

RE: Winegard T4 in motion satelitte

More than likely. B band converters were used for everything in recent years until the advent of SWM technology, so it depends on receiver.

RE: WA or OR Coast to watch storms this winter.

You want to watch storms? Dont know of any public parks that will provide thst. Private parks, yes. But no public ones. Sea N Sand just south of Lincoln City would be a great place to enjoy the harsh coast weather. Also Netarts Bay RV park just west of Tillamook offers some great views.

RE: Siding/molding sealant help please?

First things first. Pill the corner apart and inspect for water damage. Then and only then staple the tin back in place followed by lots of sealant, then the corner molding.

RE: residential refridgerator

Residential refers do NOT need 12VDC. They need 120VAC. Most installers simply have a dedicated circuit for the refer to run off of. Batteries, inverter, refer. No need for a transfer switch. But if you insist on one, then you would add it between the inverter and the refer.

RE: New Unit Equipment Insurance?

None unless its a second year warranty from a manufacturer like Forest River offers for around 200 dollars

RE: Exterior Painting of Motorhome

Cost for decent automotive paint and supplies will probably set you back 500 dollars. On top of that, you will need to build a spray booth, get a respirator etc. Modern automotove paints can be extremely toxic, so spraying wihotut proper safety equipment is out of the question. How good will it look? Depends on how good of a painter you are, and how much prep work you put in.

RE: Planning an extended trip, looking for advice.

From home, head south and take US20 east. Grand Coulee dam has a lazer light show, dry falls, Glacier park, Yellowsrone, Custer Battefield, Mt Rushmore. Ford Museum, Greenfield museum, Niagra falls, Gettysburb battlefield, heck all of the civil war battlefields are worth the time. That would get you clear to FL for starters.

RE: Heavy equipment going electric instead of diesel.

Power, no matter what form aint cheap. What these eco groups and the electric vehicle wannabees all fail to address is, where is all this electricity coming from? Thats right, its coming from coal,nuclear, and hydroelectric sources. All polluters in the eyes of the eco crowd. So, whats the long term solution? I have no clue, but electric vehicles is probably not it when you factor in disposal costs for all those batteries, not counting the energy costs to product them in the first place.

RE: Oregon coast camping

Netarts Bay RV park. While its a private park the views from the sites up front atr really great. Cape Lookout is really wooded and no views. Salmon harbor at Winchester Bay is another place with outstanding views.
