RE: Just purchased first trailer. Need help with repairs.

I always butyl rubber tape behind the vents (roof or side wall) and windows. Then pair that with either Dicor Leveling or Non Leveling depending on the application.

RE: Golf Cart Forum Questions

I'll try to get out and check compression today. If valves are stuck is there a good walkthrough anyone has seen for unsticking and adjusting valves on these? Do you know what they are supposed to be set to? If a bearing is gone bad or is going bad, is it safe to run? Is replacing a major project?

RE: Golf Cart Forum Questions

This is what I posted: I have a 97 EZGO Gas, but not sure which model. It has the 295 engine. When I got it, the engine was seized. I put some diesel in each cylinder and left it for several months. A few weeks ago, I took the plugs out, made sure it had oil in it, and put a wrench on the flywheel nut and gently turned, and the engine turned. After one turn I was able to spin it by hand relatively easily. I then used a battery to turn the engine over slowly with no plugs. Then I put it up on ramps and changed the oil. It was pretty dirty, and a few particles of metal shavings, but only a few. With fresh oil in, I put in plugs and tried to start it. It started right up once I put in new fuel, but would only run when choked. Today, I took the carb off and cleaned it all. Once back together, it started right up and would run without choke. It seemed to accelerate quickly then run quietly at a medium speed. I assume that is due to the governor. I then took the family for a ride, we got a few blocks away, and it started making a large tapping sound, but only at full speed, at slow speed it seemed to sound normal. I came home and was checking it out. I still haven't found where the sound is coming from, I need to put it up onto jacks to run, but it almost sounds like its coming from under the cover that goes over the flywheel. However, while troubleshooting, I tried running with just one plug at a time connected. I found that it doesn't run with just the driver side cylinder is connected. The plug has spark. Not sure where to go next. Could it be valves? Rings? I'm open to suggestions... THanks, Brian

Golf Cart Forum Questions

I have a 97 EzGo Gas that I'm having an engine problem with. Can you recommend a good forum to go to ask questions and get advice? I'd like something as active as here if possible. Thanks, Brian

RE: Best time to buy a premium USED fifth wheel?

I would speculate that the best time to buy really varies by area and RV show schedule. Up north people may want to get rid of them before winter. Down south you may find good deals before / after snowbird season. I also anticipate that you'll find the best USED deals AFTER the biggest RV show in your area. The best time to buy NEW is at the biggest show (RV SuperShow in Tampa is one of the biggest in the country), and after that show dealers have a lot of USED equipment they took on trade. Best time to buy anything is the last day of the month / quarter.

RE: Chevy Instrument Cluster Issues

So for those of you who fixed it yourself, where were the bad solder joints? Were they on the pins next to where the connection is? Or other places? My instrument cluster is having 2 issues. 1) Speedometer occasionally reads wrong after driving a while. I was driving on the highway the other day doing about 60 according to speedo while towing. After a little while I was passing everyone, something seemed wrong, so i checked phone GPS, and I was doing like 75+. 2) last summer the needle on my volt meter flipped upside down and has been that way since.

Putting Kayaks on a truck roof

I have a 2005 Silverado 2500 crew cab, with a topper, that is level with the cab height. I'm considering buying kayaks that are in the 12-14' range, and was hoping I could find a roof rack for the cab of the truck only that would hold them. I'd rather not have to buy a T bar to attach to a front receiver if I can help it. And I'd also like to avoid having to mount some type of bars to my topper. My question is, can you recommend a roof rack system that i can carry 2 kayaks on just the cab? Thanks, Brian

Chevy Instrument Cluster Issues

I have a 2005 Chevy Silverado, and just recently the Speedometer started acting up on a rare ocassion (twice now), where it shows me going significantly slower than I am after driving for an hour or so. I took it to the stealership and they told me a new instrument cluster is just under $600 installed. I watched a few videos tonight on how to change the cluster and found a few places that will either rebuilt your current cluster or sell you another. I'm curious if anyone else here has had similar issues and replaced the unit yourself?

Camping Recommendations in WV off I77 near Charleston

We're going to be traveling through West Virginia along I77 from Blue Ridge Parkway up toward Akron / Cleveland. We'd like to stop along the way for an afternoon & night somewhere not too far off of I77. It looks like Charleston, WV would be about the 1/2 way point. We had been planning to stay at Kanawah State Forest again, as we stayed there once 10 years ago and loved it. But after calling them to make our reservations, they have told us that our new camper is too big to get in. So now, we're stuck looking for a new campground. We'd like something like a state park, CoE, or similar park, and prefer to have electricity. We'd love something in the mountains, with nice light hiking around. Anyone have a good recommendation?

RE: Somewhere to get weighed in or near St Petersubrg

Thank you The Texan for the suggestion to call moving companies. Blocker (Allied) moving has a scale right on 22nd Ave in St Pete, just a few minutes from home that I can get weighed at for only $10!

RE: Camping in or Near Blue Ridge Mountains

We're finding that many of these places are booked up. We have narrowed our search down to something a bit north of Ashville along the parkway. Has anyone stayed at The Bear Den Campground? Bear Den Campground?

Somewhere to get weighed in or near St Petersubrg

Does anyone know of a place that I can get my truck & camper get weighed in or near St Petersburg, FL? The closest place that I'm aware is the TA truckstop over off of I4 on the other side of Seffner. I hate to drive all that way. I'm hoping someone on here knows someplace closer. Someplace free would be nice too!

RE: Favorite Campground (with WIFI) in Smokey Mountains

Thanks for all of the awesome responses! I think we're going to try the Jellystone near Gatlinburg. Our kids really love the Jellystone parks (except the one in Florida). One site picked, 8 more weeks worth to choose!

Camping in or Near Blue Ridge Mountains

We are working on plans for our summer trip. We will be spending several days in the Gatlinburg, TN area in mid June. After that we'll be making our way toward Cleveland, OH. We will have several days to make that trip. We are looking for recommendations for places to stay along the way. We'd like something like a state or national park, with lots of nature, hiking, great views, etc, not just an RV park. Maybe Skyline Drive or BlueRidge Parkway? We stayed at Kanawha state forest years ago and really enjoyed that, not sure we can fit with the bigger camper now. We will be on a long trip with our younger kids, and staying at RV parks for much of it, but want to really get them some time camping closer to nature some as well. Any input and suggestions are appreciated.

Favorite Campground (with WIFI) in Smokey Mountains

What is your favorite campground in the Smokey Mountain area, maybe near Gatlinburg, TN? Our only requirement is that it has WIFI and / or an excellent Cellular signal. I have to work from "home" for a day or two on our next trip, and am hoping to be in this area. We will have our 3 kids with us, 7 & under, who will need plenty of activities during the day. Thanks, Brian
