Must see in KC?

We have the pleasure of taking my elderly FIL, along with BIL and his family, to his old stomping grounds around Kansas City later this summer. Had a similar pleasure several years ago, after which I told DW "never again", but I guess I wasn't serious. Anyway, I am looking forward to some bbq. What would you suggest dw and I don't miss, assuming we have any time to pursue our interests? We like history, architecture, interesting shops, etc. I'm sure I can find some well known sites, but anyone have any hidden gems? Thanks for your help!

RE: Leaving hot water tank turned on

I turn mine on as soon as I'm hooked up to shore power. Turn it off when I pull the plug.

RE: exterior finish

No problem waiting except it may get dusty/dirty again. If you wait too long I would wash it again.

RE: TT guy with a 5er question

Adds stability by supporting the front end. Hopefully takes some of the "wiggle" out. Some tolerate it more than others.

RE: ladder question

Thanks for the input, everyone. Seems like I got everything tightened up pretty well, so maybe there's not a problem. I'll keep an eye on it and see how it goes. Thanks again!

RE: Best Rv Cover/Price

Considering a cover for our new fifth wheel also. Does the cover make marks on the unit where it goes over the corners as wind and weather may make it move a bit? If properly applied, the chance of that should be minimal. You'll need to pad anything sharp, like gutter extensions, etc.Also when loading or using slides, how feasible is it? They're not designed to accommodate slides being open. You might have a little wiggle room, but not much.thanks

RE: Memorial Day

While acknowledging the above distinction, imo our service men and women deserve all the positive recognition they can get, any day, any month, any year. :) So, carry on with the 'thankful posts' please. Couldn't agree more, and apologies if I dampened anyone's enthusiasm. Thank you to all who served, on this, and every other day. You're efforts and sacrifices are deeply appreciated!

RE: ladder question

I don't think the screws into the fiberglass, would have nuts behind them. Jerry Yes, sorry, that's what I'm asking. Is the mechanism, assuming nuts, behind the fiberglass stationary? Can I just change out the bolts, or will the nuts shift? Thanks for your response.

ladder question

Does anyone know if the nuts (or other mechanism) which hold the bolts into the fiberglass body are stationary? I believe one of my bolts is broken (by me overtightening! Aaargh!), and I would like to replace it, but don't know if the nut on the backside will drop off when bolt is backed out. Anyone have experience with this? Thanks much!

RE: Best Rv Cover/Price

I've used an Adco Tyvek for a number of years, and have been very happy with it. Just the universal one, but suggest you get the one with a bit extra in terms of size. I let Mother Nature decide when it needs to be washed, and don't worry about doing it myself.

RE: Memorial Day

With all due respect, although important to honor those who currently serve, this weekend and all others, Memorial Day is a holiday to honor those who died in service Link . Veterans Day is the official day designated to honor active and former service members. I think it's an important distinction.

RE: Tonneau Cover

Mine comes nowhere near the bottom of the fiver. Maybe Padlin is correct and it affects short beds.

RE: Anyone flying the flag this Memorial day?

I used to, but don't anymore simply because, where we live, no one other than DW and I would see it. I do, however, think of and silently give thanks to all those who have served, especially those who gave all. My uncle, whom I never met, was killed on Iwo Jima. I honor him in my heart and head on this, and many other days.

RE: bears

Man, that makes me angry. Something will happen and the bear will pay the price. I can't understand how people who seemingly want to spend some time with nature through camping can be so ignorant of basic ways of cooperating with it. Best of luck, naturist. Hope you manage to haze the beejeezus out of that bear and he realizes the backwoods are preferable to spending time with lunatic humans.

RE: Yellowstone weather in late May/early June

Iffy, at best. Prepare for anything. Have a great trip!

RE: What is your BEST words of wisdom?

Always make sure you've closed the valve gates before you put the cap back on.

RE: New Fifth Wheel

Lube plate. I've had the same one on since '08 with no problems.

RE: I have a question for everyone

I'm doing my darndest to plan for retirement. Minimum around 2 and maximum 4 years from now, hopefully. Plan to retire everywhere, in my fiver.

RE: Food poisoning

Sorry to hear it. Hope your problems are behind you! :)

RE: TV Antenna reception

There was another similar thread recently and it was found to be a bad cord. Could yours be that simple too? Any way to try the working tv on the "non-working" jack? Might give you another clue.
