RE: More about drinking water safety

It IS a sad situation how far this 'pure nonsense' of bottled water has gone. What a waste of money, plastic destroying our land, water and sea life. Hinckly Schmidt which was the most respected bottled water company up North.......turns out the water came DIRECTLY from the Chicago Public water facility. I believe this is what set the precedent for requiring bottled water companies to state on the label WHERE it came from not just how it was filtered. Because 'they' are not even filtering it. The city did and that allowed them to put that on the label. Talk about pure profit. They have their bottles filled from the city and then turn around and sell it to the people that are stupid enough to pay for it! If you read the label you will find most come from city water facilities. And I am sorry the ones that so-called do take it right of a spring fed without filtration, well I know I will take city water over polluted springs, rivers, glaciers any day! Just try telling the 'bottle of water in one hand' and an 'iPhone in the other' generation that drinking this water is on no value. I find it real sad what this world has come too. :(

RE: I65 thru birmingham

....the cabinet doors in my camper did not flip open, the contents did not end up on the floor, the light fixtures did not pop off the ceiling, and I did not have a headache from my head hitting the ceiling of the truck! My wife's back did not get yanked out of joint, and the dog did not throw up! Montgomery, I-65??? no! Never again! :B Too funny yet really not funny in an RV! Last time I went thru there unknowingly to me, it knocked out my fuel tank vents. And I had just fueled up. By the time I smelled fuel half the tank of gas was somewhere all over i65. :( I20 across to Atlanta was just like that a few years back. I'll drive 6 hours out of my way to go around roads like that in an RV.

RE: Dirty messy new coaches

Wow, we are maybe a week away from getting our first camper and are getting scared away by stories like this and others like mice invading and leaks. Are we doing the right thing buying a Jayco bhs29.... or any camper for that matter? Sure jump right into the world of RV'ing it's great fun. And you get to post here all the trials and tribulations you will go thru .....just like the rest of us! :B AND more importantly you will get some pretty darn good advice here from others that have gone before you. I know I have and appreciate it. Like any sport or any toy there is always going to be 'something'. :W

RE: Dirty messy new coaches

It's a CW thing. Noticed that in Quartzsite, too. I don't think it's the customers, I think it's their cheap way of not paying for a detailer. note...you said there were bugs on the front.....customers can't slap dead bugs on a rig. :B

RE: Maintaining Paint on camper jacks

====KRYLON FUSION===== Stuff goes on and over everything and STAYS forever. Make sure its the one labeled clearly for Plastic. Also lower on the label it will say wood, metal etc. This is the one that works great for everything on an RV. Last one I painted for a friend was 6 years ago and everything painted still looks like the day I put it on. Good luck.

RE: black water disposal

Thanks for that suggestion, Korbe. I have considered that, especially since I might one day build a cabin on the site. Any idea how much that would cost, ballpark. I wouldn't be able to do any of the work myself. Would have to pay to have it done. AS far as using the macerator pump. I see some with 1 1/2 inch intakes. I think the sewer hose that I dump with is larger than that. Do I need an adadpter? I would go into the office of the County Health dept ( County Sanitarian) and find out the local requirements. One nice benefit for this type of system is that you don't need power for the system - and it is always a nice selling point, or for the future cabin. IMHO I would NOT go to any local country department and ask that question unless you are ready and are going to put a septic in. Unless you are looking for trouble, for they will be all over you and watching you from that point on. Did you find out if it is legal to park an RV on that property? If not don't broadcast the fact to anyone.:W If you are just staying there a short time IF it is even legal to park/stay in an RV on that property. Just use a macerator pump as suggested to your blue tote. And btw I would not have it be in full view of the road. Digging a hole to dump, etc is going to be against the law in any state. With HUGE fines if you are caught. And permits are required for septic systems of any kind you just can't go and put them in. Again unless you don't mind be fined big bucks. Keep it on the down low and use the pump and take the waste off the property you should be go to go.....literally!!:B

RE: Dirty messy new coaches

We visited our new camping world in Ohio and asked the sales men if we could just look around. He said he was told to escort us but if we went passed him he would not stop us from looking. He told me there has been a lot of damage to the unites and that is why they tag a long. He was not joking . We went in to 250,000 coaches that looked so bad I thought they where used . They looked like they had never been cleaned from the factory bugs all over the front .Pillows stuffed all over the place and the one with the slides in you could not even get to the bath room if you wanted to. I went to open one of the doors and it was broken and I had to catch it before it hit the floor. We have a 2011 Winnebago that we ordered new . When it came in our at our local dealer. The owner called us and asked our permission to show our coach to just one couple who where looking at ordering one like ours. I used to get mad at dealers that you had to have a salesman go with you. But now I can understand why they do. I do not believe it is the customers damaging the RV's. Especially when it comes to their used RV's. It's interesting that the 2 CW's I went to look for my first RV they TOO said I had to go in their golf cart to look at any used RV. I have a back problem and can not ride in golf carts nor do I like to be driven around like crazy in one. I walked over to the used lot which was WAY on the side and in the back and everyone I looked at was a mess also not even washed. And the salesman disappeared and couldn't be found. So I left. Simply put it can't be a coincidence. That ALL the units on the lot at this dealership all where a mess yet the ones on the floor were immaculate. I don't believe any CW details any of their used RV's. And from the way I was treated looking at 'used' RV's, where they are located and their condition, it is done on purpose because they want you to look at their new units. Point in question. Fast forward 8 years and I went back to look at new Class A's at the same CW.......and was treated like I was royalty.

RE: Good reminder!

When I had my TT the only thing I forgot about once was my coffee cup on the bumper! I drove 20 miles on the interstate. Then pulled in for gas and bottomed out the hitch, I was real ticked about that. I'm finished filling up and when I was ready to leave the guy behind me says, "don't forget your coffee". I said I didn't buy any coffee and he points to the bumper. There sat my coffee cup STILL standing on the bumper after 20 miles AND pulling up that driveway! :S

RE: Leveling class C

I'm definitely in the minority here, in that I hardly ever use anything to get "level". I've always been able to move around on a site this or that way to get "level enough". I do have wood blocks which I almost never use. I have a bubble level which I normally put on the bottom shelf in the frig. and I've always managed to get most of the bubble in the center. I did just know download a bubble app level which looks pretty neat. :B from t How do you see the bubble level in the fridge from the drivers seat when you are pulling in? :W:W

RE: sulfer smell in bath sink

I'll just add that if the smell truly smelled like sulfur. I would also check your coach battery. I was getting whiffs of that smell inside my MH too. Thought it was the smell of the well water. Well, it was my batteries being boiled by the converter! The wind under the RV will make is seem like it is coming from inside from the moving air underneath. Just saying. another thing to check.

RE: Good reminder!

I found all my oops happened when a fellow camper comes over to talke about whatever while I am going thru my checklist for take off. Now, if I am interrupted I start all over from number 1 on the checklist. No more oops. :C

RE: Dinghy Battery

Pull fuse #32 I think or install a fused charge line between the coach & toad. The owners manual for my Saturn Vue that has the same transmission and engine is very specific on towing. Start engine, Run through gears, idle in NEUTRAL for 5 minutes do Not put in Park or Reverse after the idle period (if you do run another 5 min in Neutral). Every 7 (seven) hours whether towing or not repeat procedure!!!! 90,000 towing miles & 115,000 driving & no transmission problems the BOOK must be right. I changed the transmission fluid every 50,000 miles & switched to Synthetic the first change. Just my experience. Dennis x2 Yup really read your manual for your 'specific' car. I was just reaching in and starting my toad not changing anything from the toad mode it is in when towing. Duh, read the entire manual and you have to put it 'in gear' for the trans to be cooled.

Well there you go, now the whole internet world knows this guys membership number. :S And posting an answer to a customer on face book? What's with that! :R Pick up the damn phone and talk directly to these people. Force them to talk to you directly.

RE: Need To Check Those Marker Lite Covers

While I was replacing the amber marker lights up top on the front with new LED's , 4 out of the 5 old lens covers were cracked ! Actually looked like hit from rocks !..... Actually it's from all those times we go under low branches at a CG and it sounds like just soft leaves hitting the top of the RV. Well the leaves are attached to branches and those lens take a beating over time!

RE: Leveling class C

First of all I found that if you place a bulls eye level on the counsel between the front seats WHEN you pull in, that will assist you in finding the most level spot that is on the site before you even get out of the RV! http://i43.tinypic.com/25qdpqu.jpg After using this method I found that most times it totally eliminated having to use levelers under the tires!! I started out using the Lynx honey come levelers. But they crack. Especially in sand they just crack right up when you pull up on them. http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41gcEmamlsL._SX355SX355_SY295_CR,0,0,355,295_PIbundle-10,TopRight,0,0_SX355_SY295_CR,0,0,355,295_SH20_.jpg height=125 width=150 After buying my third set of those I switched to the solid ones. Still using the same ones. https://images3.campingworld.com/CampingWorld/images/products/20000/325x325/24733nblockbag.jpg height=150 width=150 And btw you will need to buy 2 sets.

RE: Cat boxes... trip

Yup taking the cat with was way more of a challenge than taking the four dogs with! :B After MANY different tries with hard side crates and litter boxes this is the ONLY way my Siamese agreed to travel in the MH without complaining thru out the whole trip! Collapsible soft crate with his bed and litter box on the other end. The important part of this set up for 'me' was the litter box in the carrier no dang granules of litter all over my MH. AND I close it up and that is where he is stays during traveling and when I have guests going in and out of my MH. I took a piece of plywood and 3 sticks of lumber for legs and made a platform that the crate sits on. BTW, that big soft side crate folds down to a completely 'flat' circle 12 inches across! Made by SportPet and Found it at Walmart for around 20 bucks! http://i59.tinypic.com/19pkis.jpg http://i62.tinypic.com/2ufrh3d.gif

RE: CrockPot Cooking

We have a fifth wheel toyhauler, so that probably wouldn't work. But If its ok at least when camping multiple days then that would be great. I have a MH and when parked I just put it outside on a portable little table and plug it in directly to the shore station to the 15 amp outlet. That way it doesn't trip the GFI when I use something else in the MH.

RE: Newbies beware-will make you cringe

If someone won't take a few extra seconds to make a clicky for their link, why should I have to copy and paste to look at it? Don't think they are lazy it's just that some people don't know 'how' to make a link clickable. Heck I've been around here for awhile and I still have problems finding anything with the search feature!! :B:B

RE: Power Outage

I have a Four Winds also and do 90% of the people I RV with to sporting events. And respectively I have to disagree with you on the GFI only attached to your bathroom. One GFI for the whole coach and it is connected to everything. I have the air on and start the micro and it blows the breaker and I have no power to the a/c electric side of the coach. Your reference to the one side of the MH? Depending on which model you have almost all the a/c "appliance" stuff that does not work with a tripped gfi IS on one side! :B T he fridge is usually on the opposite side but you won't know if that is on until it defrosts but then again it might automatically go to propane if you have it on auto and the propane turned on, so you won't know about the tripped gfi on that.
