RE: Now I need to understand

Hey now..he's broken down in Cheyenne, Wyoming..he's bored and looking to pass the time. Besides Wal*mart and tire discussions, Good Sam discussions usually get a few pages of back and forths...give the guy a break, and let's talk...he did bring up a few good points even though the initial post was taken care of...Dennis

RE: Frame saver zero tongue weight

The phone number is a landline in Wentzville Missouri....zip on google....dunno...today's mystery. It has some pretty heavy duty rims on it and two attachment points. I'm guessing it was used for some type of construction equipment, most likely with a front boom of some sort. Seems like a typical travel trailer vee assembly would hit the fenders........Dennis

RE: 50 amp to 30 amp service

If your plug is getting hot it's usually because your contacts are either dirty or the pedestal's are. Check yours to ensure they are bright and shiny. Using an adapter 50 to 30; 30 to 15; is ok with quality adapters.....no worries...Dennis

RE: Campground and activities between Redwoods and Lake Tahoe

Way too many things to see and do...you'll need to narrow down your itinerary a bit. 1. Yosemite and Gold Country...Hwy 49.. Stay at Jackson Rancheria, the kids will love the pool, activities and two hot tubs. Reach out and touch the Milky Way at night. Pretty place..try for Space 57. Visit the Marshall Gold Discovery site in Coloma. Whitewater raft on the American River. Stay at Ponderosa RV Park. Camp steps from the river. Rafters will pick you up at the resort. 2. Lake Tahoe - buy lunch in the village and take the ski lift up to Heavenly Valley. You can stop halfway and enjoy lunch while looking over the lake. Continue to the top and visit the lodge. The ski runs are groomed for easy hiking. From the top you overlook California on one side and Nevada on the other. Go into Nevada and stay at Zephyr Cove. Swim in the lake - it's the clearest in the U.S. 3. Reno - Grand Sierra RV Resort - you won't be sorry and neither will the teens. Lots for them there and the pool is a tropical paradise. 4. San Francisco - Golden Gate bridge, Pier 57, Alcatraz, crookedest street in the world, cable cars. Stay at SF RV Resort in Pacifica. Bus picks you up in front of the resort to wherever you want to go in SF. Watch the whales from your site overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Pool/Spa..walk on the beach, watch the hang gliders come into your campsite. 5. Leave SF and take Hwy 1 north. Stop at all the lighthouses along the coast. For a treat, they can actually stay overnight in one of the caretakers houses for a small fee. 6. Fort Bragg - take the Skunk Train 7. Redwoods - at Leggett, go through the drive thru tree. Stay at Ancient Redwoods RV Park right on the Avenue of the Giants. Lots of hiking/biking trails through the huge redwoods. This is but a smattering of things to see and do..pics are available if you need them....enjoy...Dennis

RE: Extended Warranty

I bought mine through WW and have been pleased with their service claims. Approved a mobile tech to replace our front A/C last year. Also paid a tire claim in full with no deductible...worth the money IMO...some on here say put your money is a savings acct...I say BS...I've more than paid for my warranty already. And yes, they are not warranties, they're service contracts....Dennis

RE: How to keep the water valve to the ice maker from freezing?

RE: Reno Area RV Parks?

We stay at the Grand Sierra. Nice RV park with full use of the pool which has a sandy beach and atmosphere. There's a go cart track and some other things for the younger set if you are traveling with them. Virginia City is a worthwhile trip. Take the train ride. If you've never been to Lake Tahoe, that too is a must see. You can drive around the entire lake and stop at many places along the shore. We dropped a penny in the water and took a picture of it at least 30 feet down. The water is that clear. If you do go into South Lake Tahoe, stop at a Subway/MickyDs/whatever your thing is and get it to go. Take the ski lift at Heavenly Valley. It'll take you half way up the mountain and let you off. Have a leisurely lunch overlooking the beautiful lake, then get back on the lift and go all the way to the top. You overlook Nevada and California for miles. If you like to hike, all the ski trails are groomed for easy hiking at the top. There's also a lodge there. Lots more to do in the Tahoe area than there is in Reno.....Dennis

RE: New RV

I agree..video tape it! With all the excitement you'll forget most of it. Have the salesman show you what every switch is for and what it does. Don't let them gloss over anything. They're making big bucks off the sale so have them take some time with you. A good walk thru will last at least an hour and a half. Make sure you know how to use the dump tanks..remember the movie RV..:E...if you're going to do your own maintenance have them show you where the oil and fuel filters are. It it comes with a tow/haul mode, have them explain that to you as well. Finally, if you have kids, leave them home if you can. Less distractions, the better....good luck, and congratulations on the new coach. Remember, whatever you do forget, RV.Net is only a few clicks away. No question is too dumb. We've all been there before...Dennis

RE: Got the Toad now I need bars and plates

NSA does make ends for their Ready Brute to match any of the three you mentioned. You have to decide beforehand which baseplate mfg you're going to use so they can provide the right ones. If you buy used, not to worry, cuz the ends are changeable....for a price. I've used the Blue Ox baseplates on my last three vehicles for one simple reason. When you're not towing, they're virtually invisible. The tow pins turn 90 degrees and you pull them out and the rest is not really noticeable. The roadmaster seemed to be pretty bulky. I've been happy with the BlueOx but I don't think you can go wrong with any of them...personal choice. My coach came with a 7 pin wiring harness as I'm sure yours did. The 7 pin harness includes wiring for the brake lights, turn signals and taillights, with an additional blue wire for 12V hookup if necessary. I don't use one myself but I don't do much night driving. You'll need some diodes installed to prevent backfeed to your coach. Easy to wire up. If there's room, you could drill a hole inside the taillight housing and snap in separate bulbs which would negate the need for the diodes as you'd be bypassing all the SUVs electrical system. I did that with my Saturn, but wired the HHRs and the Equinox through their systems. Whichever baseplate you choose, please also install the ReadyStop. You may save a life if you're toad ever separates from your coach.....Dennis

RE: CB Radios

My coach came with one, but I rarely use it. If there's a traffic tie up I'll sometimes turn it on to see if a trucker reports what's happening, but other than that, it's off. That said, we don't use the radio either. Wife and I actually talk to each other while under way....:).....Dennis

RE: Shore power cord repair

All the above is correct...however, I'll add one other tidbit... White is ALWAYS neutral. Green is ALWAYS ground. ANY OTHER COLOR is ALWAYS hot....it could be orange red black purple etc...it's ALWAYS HOT.....Dennis To the OP.. if you're buying a PLUG/MALE, it's a NEMA TT30P...the RECEPTACLE/FEMALE is a NEMA TT30R... make sure you get the right one. If it's not marked TT, its the wrong one. DO NOT USE THE NEMA 10-30....Dennis Not to get totally technical, but..... If the power is running thru a light/fan box, the electrician should run the HOT on a WHITE wire down to the switch, which brings BLACK back up HOT to the light/fan/whatever. I have seen them NOT do this, which brings WHITE back up HOT. Not the prefered method, but I have seen it. ALWAYS test. I hate to see someone get zapped ASSUMING white is always nuetral. Although, I guess they wouldn't get zapped if they shut the power off. Either way, testing for hot would probably be best if you are not removing a black wire---replacing a black wire, etc... ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS...Check with a meter to be sure. Just to be clear, anytime the white and/or ground is run as a different color than that which I posted, that wire is supposed to be taped with the correct color. In the example above, the WHITE wire should have been wrapped with BLACK tape for the last 8-12" indicating it is HOT....Dennis

RE: N.J. Inspection

FYI Diesel powered vehicles over 10000 # are exempt from NJ state inspection. ummmm...I guess I missed that when reading from the New Jersey manual...to wit: "All heavy-duty diesel vehicles 18,000 pounds GVWR or more are required to be tested for smoke emissions annually at a licensed Diesel Private Inspection Facilities (Diesel PIF) within 90 days of your vehicle's registration or renewal." :h:h....Dennis

RE: How to Get the Stink Out of Bathroom

Assuming your tank was somewhat clean when you started, you shouldn't have any odor unless something is wrong with your system. Make sure it's the black tank and not the grey...often they will emit a similar smell. Ensure all "P" traps have water in them, including the one for the W/D. Check the vent pipe from the black and the grey tank to ensure they are clear.....Dennis

RE: How Much is Local Dealer Worth in Purchase Price?

Take the ad with you, show it to the sales MANAGER. tell him/her you're ready willing and able to buy TODAY, but at the other dealer's offered price. If he says no, thank him for his time and walk out. It may be the other dealer's loss leader and $17+change is the lowest he can go. If that's the case, he won't sell it to you at a loss, so you might just have to make the trip...good luck...Dennis
