RE: Blow Lines or AntiFreeze, or both?

I've read a lot of threads about winterization. Some say blow the lines, some say fill the lines with antifreeze. But I still have a few questions. I'm sure I'll get a number of opinions, but I figure it's like reading product reviews. If the majority goes one way, then that becomes a factor in the decision making process. The more info I get, the better informed decision I can make. Thanks. If you blow the lines, will there be residual water that can burst a line? What's the chance of bursting a line with an air compressor? If you blow the lines, do you really need antifreeze in the lines? How do you drain the washing machine connection without having water/antifreeze everywhere? If I want to use the rig during the winter, can I just blow the lines after each use and not waste antifreeze? Wow already 3 pages! "Any kind of energy will take the path of least resistance". This said once you blow the lines and you start getting some air out the other end. The air you blow in could ride over the water in the lines leaving water pockets. And yes this those pockets could freeze and bust lines. of course this all depends on how long your blowing out the lines and how much pressure your putting in. also what ever pressure your putting into the lines you will get something LESS going out because of friction loss. The best way to push out one column of water is with another. I drain the hot water tank, bypass it and I just use my RV water pump to flush/pump out all the lines till there pink. then open a couple of faucets for expansion. been doing it for 14 yrs never had a problem. Been doing the same with my pool heat pump also. never had a problem with that either Mike

RE: Ratings of Parks

We use rvparksreviews.com, and do the same regarding how many reviews the member has posted.....only one review, maybe a park owner? Many members have posted many reviews, and those reviews have helped a lot. We use an app RVparky and Google Earth. If we all take the time to review the parks we stay in, we can help each other plan our trips. RVParkReviews.com requires that members submit three reviews before any are posted. That rule has cut way down on the bogus reviews by CG owners or their friends. You will occasionally find a single posted review, but that may be because the other two were rejected for some reason, or have not yet been posted due to a backlog. IMO The 3 review rule is a good idea, I have noticed most of the rant/flame or advertisement type reviews will just be a few or one review which I usually ignore. From what I have read rvpr will be going to a new web site very soon, my guess the new site will do a better job of updating with less back loging Mike

RE: the search for more storage space

I am also new to site and to HTT,we just bought a 2005 Jayfeather.The jacknife was bad so the dealer replaced it with a hide-a-bed that we wont use, my question is can the bed part be removed and make under the couch storage? Has anyone ever done this for more storage,any help would be very appreciated. Kind of a guess here, the original bed and what the dealer replaced, were they both part of the slide ?, our jayco slide there is absolutely no room under the bed because of the slide motor, might be the same for yours. Opps almost forgot, Welcome to the forum! Mike

RE: Storing a jayco 23b or other camper/ lowering of tire air

try taking the cover off the A/C unit, you might get the 1" your looking for. Also, what kind of ground is your inlaws barn entrance? maybe you can trench out the ground. Mike opps, sorry double post

RE: Kayak carrying

I've got 2 pics on my profile with our 2 10' kayaks. Both our kayaks weight around 40# and with me being 6', it isn't a problem with me getting them onto the roof/thule carriers. I also bring a small 5' ladder to help strap on the kayaks to the thule carriers What I have found is our kayaks get messy, so putting them either in a RV or some place else you will probably track in dirt.

RE: Emails from RVParkReviews.com

Just curious, With the new website will there be any change on the requirements for a review to be posted? Mike

RE: Emails from RVParkReviews.com

From my experience on RVPR, they have a high standard in regards to limiting the type of reviews that are the flame/rant or advertisement type. Also my guess those few one and done flame/rant or advertisement reviews that do happen to make it on line, I would think it would be unlikely the user profile would contain personal info. That said not saying the system is perfect. just my 2 cents Mike

Can't remember the last time we camped on a labor day weekend, moving my oldest son into collage this weekend. Mike

I have had problems with my Jayco, first year while towing noticed front face of trailer starting to delaminate, when I returned home from the trip found a seam had popped opened on the roof. ended having the whole front face of the trailer replaced. The only good news it was covered on the 2 year warrant. This all said, after every camping trip I'm finding seams that look like there starting to fail where I have to re caulk. :( I think a lot of this delamination comes from todays manufacturing practices including the use of the new environmentally safe caulks and glues. Mike

RE: How to prevent delamination

Water. That's it...just keep the water out. Keeping water out just isn't as easy as it sounds with all of the flexing and movement of the frame and structure while towing. Takes constant checking. This is especially true with the hybrids, combine that with the new environmentally friendly caulks & glues means I'm constantly recaulking seams after every trip which becomes a real drag... :( Mike

RE: Camping with the Rich and Famous...

Some of their income is from actual winnings but I'm sure most of their income comes from product endorsements and advertising on their boats, trucks, and rigs. Paid to fish. Now that's a good niche income for a full timer. How about paid to Camp! I'm taking endorsements right now! :B :B Mike
