RE: Bed covers and fifth wheel clearance

Have used a Fold A Cover since 2004 that works just fine. There are other brands that people use and like. Pick one you tjink will work best.

RE: Looking for our first RV and suggestions ...

15K motor homes can be huge money pits. They will be pretty old, third and fourth owners with poor to no maintenance can be the norm. Yes, you might find a good one, but..... your biggest concern are going to be water damage, so careful inspection are going to vitally important. Ipping ypir budget to 20-25K could get you a fairly decent used MH.

RE: RV Parks in Oregon,Washington,Canada

From Ashland head north on I5 and at Medford head up the hill to Crater Lake. Stay at Diamond lake resort. Then over to US97 north stay at LaPine state park. North on 97 to I90 and into Seattle area. Good luck finding any decent parks in the area. If it were me I wouls head back east on 90 and pick up 97 north again. This puts you into the Okanogan region. Lots of wineries in the area plus a lot of lakes. From there? NE toward Calgary maybe? Anyplace you choose, het reservations now. Oregon state parks fill up fast and are usually full all summer

RE: Step 1 complete

Good luck! Once cancer starts its usually a never ending battle, and never cheap.

RE: 12 volt electrical not working when shore power disconnected

Battery disconnect or a fuse. Possibly a breaker.

RE: Roof Leak

Water can ru a long ways. There is only o e way I know of to positively identify leak spots. That is with a seal test. As an alternative you can try a leaf blower.

Only takes a minute to check and adjust it.

RE: Lifting fifth wheel

From experience, unless you have the right tools it aint gonna work very well. You really need to get the frame supported on both sides and high enough off the ground to get the tires off. Then you will need two bottle jacks one on each side under the spring perches to support the qxle then takes the bolts out. You will also need pry bars, I have two pin end bars and used both a lot to replace my bushings and bolts when I did my wet bolt kit.

RE: First Travel Trailer - 2001 Four Winds 27'

Appliances function and water leaks are your two major items. Check VERY carefully around all windows, doors, vents and especially inside all cupbords. Also carefully look at the entire ceiling. Any signs of recent painting, or water stains should be red flags.

RE: questions on battery charging

There is absolutely no need to use a external battery charger if your RV is plugged in. That is what the converter/charger is for.

RE: American Tire

Do you mean Anericas tire? I have been treated very well by them in the past, but not MH tires. They have done my trailer tires several times. They probably dont stock anything in the sizes your looking for. Les Schwab does, and while not as competetive have a dealer network that really covers the far west well.

RE: $12,000 to replace flooring??

Just had new carpet laid in our living room. 400 in labor plus the carpet. I think they did not want the job

RE: Aluminum vs Fiberglass TT

Astetics. The corrogated aluminum looks old, and is cheaper to buy, so it makes a cheaper trailer. Its also harder to clean and shine.

RE: Rain noise...Alpenlites are so loud...

If your rubber roof is hard, that is not normal. I suspect your roof material is brittle and ready to fail. Have it inspected by someone knowledgable, and then be prepared to replace it.

RE: Purchasing an Arctic Fox

Contact both Apache camping center in Portland and Thunder RV in Lagrande. When I bought my Fox years ago they both were dealing.

RE: comcast

Is this a park cable box? If so, like I said run a coax directly from the park outlet to the back of the box. If that works then you know the problem is internal. If it does not work, then you know the problem is either a dead,box or park connection.

RE: comcast

Run the cable from the outside connedtion directly to the back of the cable box. It is quite possible that your box is not comparible with the parks service provider.
