RE: Is Motorhome Magazine any good? GS RV Travel/Saving guide?

It's a relatively cheap magazine with a few good articles and LOTS of ads. I do like some ads as there are some innovative products on the ads.

RE: Thor Hurricane 34J vs Itasca 35B

The way I see it is you only know which one to get. Some people are minimalists, some people like to kick back with are their limbs fully extended with plenty of elbow room. Both coaches are similar in quality. If it was me we are more minimalists and like to spread out at campsites so I'd go with whatever is less expensive and keep the extra cash for other things.

RE: RV Trip Planner

I'll 5th RVParky. I use it of course as an "outline" of the trip I'm taking, and also use several other sites including tripadvisor and google to get reviews on tourist spots.

RE: Half-ton toad

I've been seriously looking at the Fleetwood Pace Arrow 35e DP. It has a 340 hp Cummins engine. This will be our first motorhome. I figured as long as I can tow a half-ton truck, and put all of our bikes in the back (6 of them), some firewood, etc. in the back of the truck, then I won't miss our 5th wheel toy hauler. Then I started thinking about towing capacity. I was surprised to see that it says it's rated for 5,000 lbs towing. The only half-ton that fits that description is an aluminum body F150. Do any of you tow a half-ton truck with that size engine? What is your experience? Do you ever tow slightly more than your DP is rated for? I know that the rating is not a suggestion, but certainly there is a range of capability. Thanks for your experience and thoughts. Smart idea. This way you have the "trailer" function of the truck bed for those "outdoor items". I am curious though, why not a smaller utility pickup? May be easier to tow - much lighter and they usually hold a lot of gear.

RE: Crock pot cooking while traveling?

Yes you can. But please make sure its not going to slide around while driving down the road. On the rare occasion we do it. Sarah sets the crock pot in one of the kitchen sinks. (She puts down a towel first.) Tom Stuff towels all around it too. :)

RE: "Flex Seal" for an RV roof?

Me, I'd stick to what I KNOW works. :)

RE: 7" (or larger) GPS Units

If you are able to use a laptop, we LOVE Microsoft streets and trips. We like that it updates,we like that there are tons of locations... However, it is getting more obsolete. As iphones and androids are becoming more advance, and 3g/4g keeps one online, you basically have the best GPS systems through a phone.

RE: removing radiator on a 1986 holiday rambler

Well if you do it take pictures. :) Then it will forever be here for anybody to view.

RE: RV Radio

Usually it's easier than a typical car stereo to change out. Especially i you have good access behind the dash. The XM will of course need the antenna so there's that to run.

RE: 2006 Couchmen Cross Country 382DS purchase

They make a nice RV. There are a lot of happy owners of them. I've looked at them myself on several occasions. :) Let us know what you decide.

RE: winnie vs. holiday rambler

I lean HR on this one just from the laminate use on the exterior. Both are good coaches though.

RE: Def Tank Guage

I've known people do it after every trip. The thing is, you can't always trust fill gauges on RV's so it may be wise to do it or at least top it off.

RE: Power Gear Hydraulic jacks won't retract

Yes please keep us informed. I have some family with these types of jacks that get locked down occasionally... They don't know how they fix but sometimes they just "start working" again.

RE: Vintage Class A Motor Homes

I'm loving this thread... Classics! Love some of the 1950's coaches. :)

RE: Should we turn off the water?

I would, and what I would do is leave on either the furnace on low, or have an old school light bulb on in several rooms. It will provide just a bit of heat in the house.

RE: Branson MO, Trail of Lights- Height Clearance?

Its not the turns that are a problem, its the tree on the inside of the turn. I would check at the entrance first. X2, trees are definitely the concern... check at the gate or call ahead.

RE: Heat not working?

Any igniters clicking or popping sounds? Do any stove burners light now?

RE: brighter lighting for my MH

For interior lighting I would not use LED's or CFL's. Unless power saving is an absolute must. They do not give off the full color spectrum (CFL's are horrible). There are a few interesting articles on these types of bulbs causing depression as colors are not as vibrant.

RE: Disconnect alarms for tow bar arms

I have not seen them but I can't imagine this would be a hard thing to setup. Simply a disconnect alarm.
