RE: Gas challenged?

31 ft and towing and I can pull in and pull out of just about any normal gas station. AND I can NOT back up with the toad on so looking ahead for the exit strategy is real important. The KEY is to LOOK AHEAD before you pull in. 1.How do you go in and how does it exit. 2. Are there cars parked in front of the store close to the pumps that would prohibit you from turning to leave when you exit from the pump? Bottom line if there are 'parking spaces' I don't pull in because while you are pumping someone can pull in and park there. 3. As mentioned above I try to buy the outside pumps they usually are easy to get in and out of even if there is parking in front of the store. In my travels I have found Loves to be the most RV friendly the pumps are WAY far away from the front of the building and ample empty lot on either side of the pumps. When possible I look for them to fuel up at. I refuse to even enter a Flying J for anything anymore. :W

RE: Day night shades

Mine have clips but it seems like the valance might have to come down ?? No you don't have to take the valance down. You don't want to unscrew and have to re-screw back in anything you don't need to in an RV wall. Read the above post how to locate clips. There are clips that are way up under the valance. Hard to find, can't see them etc etc. It is frustrating but just take your time! :W BUT once you find them with your fingers it's an easy out and easy in to replace your shades.

RE: GM Chassis Class C

You will find a plethora of Chevy chassis in the 24 foot size Class C's. Once you get into the 31 ft size the Ford V10 is the engine of choice. I wanted a Chevy engine and spent 'months' trying to find a 31ft with a Chevy chassis which is how I came to find out that they where only found in the smaller C's. I've seen a couple of the larger toy hauler Class C's with the Chevy chassis though.

RE: Did I miss something

If you do not have a Good Sam Club membership you can't use their website. Go figure. :R

RE: Leaking Water Filter and Hose

I have had issues with new "water accessories" that came with the plastic hose washers. I replace them with the rubber ones and have had no further issues. X2 Walmart has a pack of them in all different sizes for around $2 bucks. In the garden hose aisle. I keep a couple of bags of them in the MH and use them to replace those darn hard plastic washers that seem to come on everything now. And to replace any tired rubber ones.

RE: What service does GS use?

They contract repair/tow services. When you break down they call the closest tow truck service that they have a contract with. I.E. a tow service that agrees to do the work for free for you and bills Good Sam.

RE: So my fridge just died

BTW: check that your battery is fully charged and converter working. The fridge needs full 12 volt to run thermostat. any amount of Low 12 voltage and the fridge will come on but when it reaches the temp set and shuts off it will not come back on again.

RE: So my fridge just died

Out dry camping in the middle of nowhere (well almost) and I noticed my Dometic RM 2862 not holding it temperature. So I go take a look in back and I see the telltale yellow powder residue around the propane burner (had it running on gas all weekend). Anyway, so I'm assuming it's shot. So my predicament is a big weeklong trip planned over the upcoming holiday and I need to find the best way to replace it. Should I just buy a whole new unit? Are these as good as those "Amish" made units? I'm in the Milwaukee area what would be the quickest way to find a replacement? I'm pretty sure I can install it myself. Any input is well appreciated. You don't have to drive anywhere or worry about dealerships being closed!!!!! Call the closest CG and a few other CG's close by and ask each one who they use for "RV Mobile Repair" get the numbers and start calling them. They will go ANYWHERE you are parked. Mobile Repair guys have THE best connections for acquiring anything RV you may need. And of course he might just tell you its something else and he can fix it. Trust me if you do need a fridge they WILL find one for you!!!:B They WILL be working. RV Mobile Repair Guys never take off holidays! I'm from around the Milwaukee area and all the RV Mobile Repair guys where you are at are IMHO A+. My MH has not seen the inside of a repair shop since I bought her. I have ALL my maintenance and repairs done by RV Mobile Repair at my CG site where ever that may be. Sit back and open a cold one where you are at while the mobile repair guy takes care of whatever you need. Good Luck I hope the info helps and that it is not a major repair/replace for you. :C

RE: WVa flooding got my TH

Extensive flooding in WVa has us to where we can't get within 10 miles of our TH. We were in Beckley visiting my brother and we got word River was rising 2 to 3 feet an hour. We were 45 mins away from our camper and torrential downpours shut roads down to where we couldn't get to the TH to move it.. Long story short, don't even know if it's on our pad, or washed away... I KNOW it's under water to some extent... I called insurance comany and hope River drops low enough to be able to assess the damage and take pictures for insurance purposes. Rough night for the wife and I . We don't exactly know what to do... Oh, sons camper was also on our lot... Don't know it's condition either. One never knows what is going to happen. Guess we're now without a camper...between me recouping from the stroke and wife from hip replacement.. This is just about a knock out blow... Don't know what we're going to do at this time.....Jim I just was watching the video footage of this area from a drone and omg it looked horrific. Soo sorry your are in the middle of all that.:( Be thankful you and all the family are ok. Hope the roads open up soon so you can get to your RV's. You will all be in our prayers tonight. :C

RE: Why do we keep paying more??

It's none of the above that it is due to the economy and inflation and they need to raise the rates. Because all new members will get the lowest rate possible. I saw red when I became aware of this. They jack up the renewal price all the time on existing members. YET, a new member joins and they get the lowest rate possible. Be with them for 10 years and they raise the rate come renewal time. Yup that's the thanks for being a loyal customer. I have never seen any other company do business this way. They raise your rates? Cancel and then come back and put it in your DW's name as a new member and get the lower rate and then have lots of kids and each year put it in a different kids name. :W:B

RE: What do you do about dirty clothes?

We are on our first trip that is longer that 5 days. We will be gone for 10-12 days and haven't had this issue before. What do you do with your dirty clothes? Seems like a weird question I guess but... 1. Where do you put your dirty clothes? It seems like there is no logical place to hang our dirty clothes bag (we have the C with the bed in the back corner) and there isn't anywhere to build a hamper??? 2. Do you wash your clothes? Where and how often? We are not staying at any campgrounds with these facilities and won't go to a laundry mat. I'm still curious WHY you won't go to a laundromat?:?

RE: Question to the full Timers Out There Or Soon To Be

My question is how long have you done full timing and what made you go full timing.... me and my wife had made a discussion we do not want to be full timers because we have been RVing since we were young and owned many RV's and feel like we have done the life style enough that we could never live full time in a RV,..... ...Who here has had their share of RV trips while younger and feel like full timing is a done that been there thing. I'm a little confused.:? You state you would NEVER live in an RV full time and then ask why people would NOT full time.......on a Full-timer forum. We ARE full timers! So needless to say WE don't think it's a been there done that thing cause we're doing it! :W

RE: Side Aisle and All-in-one Bath Floorplans

I'll just add that a friend of mine bought a new MH just to have the aisle instead of the thru the split bathroom. Ended up real unhappy with it. The wall to accomplish the aisle to the side cuts off the MH in half and it looks and feels real small then and the front of the MH is then real dark too. Just saying. And how long can a guest stay in a bathroom that would make you feel trapped? :W

RE: Leaving camper unoccupied - help

Do you have a jumpit for jump starting cars? If not you should have one on board when RV'ing! :W I used one of those with a small cheap plug in inverter and then plugged in a residential small table lamp. Makes it look like someone is home 'inside' the RV and the battery jumpit will provide the power to that lamp for couple days. I also used CFL bulb in lamp less watts. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/RVn05/th_jumpit.jpg?t=1298075848 + http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/RVn05/th_inverter.jpg?t=1298075850 + https://encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcR8juUFoydO5D470xSjtCWsaqtOgTw-2tISoP9gPRy6fW9hZ7Ihqw This combo is also priceless to have in case of an emergency. I can watch a small TV all night with it too!

RE: Near Milwaukee Wisconsin ?

It won't because there are NOT that many in that area. Been there done that. Searched till I was blue in the face. Yogi is the only big CG in Milwaukee. There is a real nice family oriented CG off of highway 50 about 35 minutes out of Milwaukee. They carry Burlington addresses only as a rural mailing address. Meadowlark Acres, Inc. Phone - (262) 763-7200 N5146 North Road Burlington, WI 53105 http://www.meadowlarkacres.org/index2.html Also check out the Lake Geneva area off of 50 also. 30 minutes out of Milwaukee. There are CG's at the state park too right on Lake Geneva.think its called big foot. And then there is this 'little' CG 'nothing special' it does have a pool. BUT the bonus of it is it is across the street from the beach of Lake Geneva with all kinds of activities AND for the DW 5 minutes away from a huge long historical street of specialty and antique shops!! Coachman's Terrace W3540 State Road 50, Lake Geneva, WI 53147-3497 (262) 248-3636 ? http://www.coachmansterrace.com/ http://www.happyacres.com/ Bong State Park http://wisconsinstateparks.reserveamerica.com/camping/richard-bong-state-recreation-area/r/campgroundDetails.do?contractCode=WI&parkId=60008 Good Luck. :C

RE: 1978 Chevy 30 motorhome

You can weld whatever to a chassis to whatever weight capability. But it won't help the coach pull it! :W I 'know' that my toad is back there when pulling the grades or even small hills. You can drive on the straight away pulling just about anything with any size engine but you'll never make it up a steep hill without it floating out with an underrated motor for what you are towing.
