RE: Refrigerator Settings

Huh? You say the outside refer is a dorm type? That leads me to believe that it is 120VAC only. So whats the problem? 30A should be noroblem running both refers plus one AC. Unless you have a dedicated 30A outlet for the RV you probably only have 20A.

RE: The Big Three's New Diesels put on a Dyno

Missing is the all important RPM at which those numbers were developed.

Cedar Creek has always been tops in customer service. I dont think any dealer is worth a crud. You might want to search out Arctic Fox. Built on an in house frame, and built to withstand the riggers of a hard life.

RE: Oregon "CARRY CHAINS" requirement ?

Chains follow the studs rule unless we get a large snow dump in the mountains. Then chains can be required. As far as I know there is no law requiring you to carry chains in Oregon, just common sense

RE: Dometic RM2554 (General question)

My side vent works great. How old is it? Have you tried adjusting the thermister that is mounted on the far right fin? Have you tried blowing out the chimney? Have you tried cleaning the burner tube? Replacing it with a nevercold definitely is NOT the way to go. Figure out what is going on and fix it instead. BTW, there are several discussions on how to improve side vent refers on here and other forums.

RE: Tahoe, Yukon, Expedition, or Armada to pull 32' TT

You are really asking for trouble towing that big of a sail with so little vehicle. Regardless of weight you really need at minimum a 2500 series long bed truck. Maybe,just maybe a 2500 Suburban could work. All those short wheel vehicles you mentioned will get you into serious trouble real quick.

RE: Route from Sacramento, Ca to Medford, Or

I5 is basically the ONLY route. It is 4 lane freeway that hundreds of cars and trucks use daily. It is an easy drive.

RE: Travel WIFI to WIFI extender/booster

Then buy a mifi device from either Verizon (best coverage) or AT&T (second best) coverage. Both will at least be a secure network. Remember hotels, RV park WIFI are all unsecure. Meaning if your on it, everything and I mean EVERYTHING on your device can be available to anyone else on the network to steal from you.

RE: Why do You Workamp (or volunteer)

We camped in State parks for around 30 years. When we retired we felt it was time to give back. We find work camping a lot of fun. The rangers we interact with go out of their way to let us know we are appreciated, not just a warm body to use and throw away.

RE: Oregon campgrounds where dogs can't hear fireworks?

Oxbow park is the one I was trying to think of. Down in the canyon next to the river. Should be very quiet.

RE: Service "Package" for TT Spring Inspection

Remember, that 500 dollars is all labor and pure profit to the dealer. Personally I do/would not trust a dealer to do a good job. For maybe 50 dollars in material for a couple tubes of Dicor I can inspect and reseal almost every outside seam on my trailer. The rest just takes time. But, if your not handy I guess you will have to spend the money.

RE: Sealants

Roof? Go up on a ladder and look. Sealants? Dicor, lap seal for roofs non lap seal for verticle surfaces. Some prefer Proflex, but I have found,it difficult to use and does not stick very well.

RE: Oregon campgrounds where dogs can't hear fireworks?

Any state park, plus the Mult county park east of Gresham should suffice.

RE: Cell Phone Guru's? question

New OS means a lot of new and different things. It the way of updates. BTW for those Apple folks that might read this, be aware before you do the next update. The OS is totally different and your likely to loose stuff unless you do a full cloud backup.

RE: The never ending debate..SRW vs DRW

SRW trucks are so friendly! When I'm out with the RV in even moderate winds, all the SRW trucks wag their tails at us as though they're happy to see us on the road. My DRW doesn't acknowledge them. No matter how windy it is, my dually refuses to wiggle its butt even a little bit in return. I suppose that's mighty unfriendly, but it sure feels safe. As for fuel economy, two extra tires in the back don't mean a whole lot when the real problem is the giant whale nose of the fifth wheel . It's like towing a sailboat against the breeze. As for width, if the mirrors fit, the hips fit. Drive-thrus are a bit challenging, but at my age and weight I probably shouldn't be eating any food that has to be unwrapped after shouting the order into a plastic clown-head. I also tend to park in the back of parking lots and walk farther to the store. I guess in that respect, my dually is trying to keep me healthy! Amen brother!

RE: I think we are done

We all have to make that decision for a variety of reasons sooner or later. For us it is pirely financial. We just dont have the money to travel like I want and stoll maintain a house. We have always been lucky and kept out RVs at home, so prepping has never been an issue. Good luck in the future.

RE: The never ending debate..SRW vs DRW

Misconceptions abound in your post. The widest point on any truck is the mirrors. Duallies are more stable. Do you need a dually? NO! What you need for your current fiver is a 2500 long bed, either a ext or crew cab. The longer wheel base will handle your current fiver much better. Fuel mileage will be no better or worse. It depends too much on engine,transmission and rear end gear ratio. The extra two tires will make so little difference, you will never see it.

RE: Buy used RV

PPL motor homes seems pretty reputable from what most people say.
