RE: Camping World and Corporate America

I think the problem is the meatballs running Corporate America. :)

RE: Philadelphia, PA to Columbus, OH

Turnpike to I70. Straight shot. Lots of up and down. Pleasant drive. If you really wanted to avoid the tolls you could use the Turnpike to I81 south to I70 west to I68 west to I79 north back to I70 and on to Columbus. Personally, I'd pay the tolls. These are the only logical options. You can go on the Pennsylvania Turnpike website and calculate your tolls from the NJ/PA line to the New Stanton Exit. Then decide if it's worth driving the additional 45 or so mies by taking the southern route. Next time I go to Columbus I'm taking the southern route. I'm just tired of the PA Turnpike. Either way is an easy drive.

RE: Looking to upgrade to a class A from 77 VW Campmobile

You stated, "...to set up as a permanent home." A mobile home or park model travel trailer would be better suited than a motor home. Why pay for an engine and transmission as well as converter, inverter, etc. that you will never use? The OP also said it will be used to go south in the winter and back to Minnesota in the summer.

RE: Am I completely crazy?

Something else to consider. Some RV parks have a limit on the number and breed of dogs allowed.

RE: Joined the Class A family, it's an oldie, hope its a goodie!

Nice rig with that overhang on the back just watch when turning close to things the back swing out when turning will hit things if your not careful. X2, find your pivot point and watch your tail swing. You'll be fine.

RE: Joined the Class A family, it's an oldie, hope its a goodie!

Congrats and thanks for sharing. :C My advice would be, check the roof. Cover joints/seams with Eternabond and/or Dicor Self Leveling Lap Sealant. Address any suspicious areas on the roof to keep it leak free. Change the oil in the engine and generator. Also, have the transmission serviced. Then YOU will know when it was done. It looks like a nice rig. You will get many years out of it. I like the older RV's, they have more class than the new units. Enjoy your travels. You will love the Class A.

RE: Rain Leak Under "Bedroom" Carpet

I was thinking maybe it was leaking around a skylight, vent or other opening on the roof. You found the problem, that's all that matters. I think warm air is better for drying carpet. But any moving air is better than none. I'd still find a car wash and vacuum as much as possible. It will dry the carpet quicker.

RE: Could this be the start of something big?

It will be interesting to see if it goes anywhere.

RE: Rain Leak Under "Bedroom" Carpet

Find a self serve car wash and vacuum as much of the water as possible. Then run your A/C or drive with Windows open if possible. There is probably foam under the carpet, then plywood. Check your roof. Something is leaking and it may be running down inside a wall onto the floor.

RE: Winterizing Tips and Tricks

I can say that dryer sheets do repel dinosaurs. When I did use dryer sheets I never had any problems with dinosaurs getting inside our trailer. They always stayed outside. Dryer sheets also work for Werewolves and Vampires. But, they're useless against IRS Agents, they're just too evil. :B

RE: 2002 Dutchmen Supreme 35bh - advice on purchase

Maybe you can find a RV Tech in the area the 5th Wheel is located? They could do the inspection and let you know if it's worth the trip. Or, maybe a forum member would volunteer to do a quick check to see if it's worth the trip, if they knew the location of the RV. Did you check online for any Dutchman Forums? Sorry I don't have a better answer.

RE: 2002 Dutchmen Supreme 35bh - advice on purchase

My advice? I would advise you to go see it in person. You need to check for leaks and soft spots on the floor. There is a lot you can't see in pictures. If you are not capable of doing the inspection, hire a Mobile RV Tech to do the inspection. Condition is the important factor when buying a used RV. Keep us updated and don't hesitate to ask lots of questions before you decide to buy the Dutchman.

RE: Monaco Monarch Question

Yes, it can and should be inspected before you give the seller any money. If you're not familiar with RV's, hire a mobile RV tech to do the inspection.

RE: Eternabond tape on Winnebago roofs?

I just did some repairs to the rubber roof on our 96 Southwind. I used 2" Eternabond along the edge of the roof. About 1/2 an inch went over the top of the rain gutter and the rest on the rubber roof. I would have used 4" along the edge but, the roof curved and I was concerned bout applying the tape straight, even and With no bubbles. 4" Eternabond was used where the rubber met the front and rear caps. I hope I answered your question.

RE: Working underneath a trailer--best way to do it?

The best way to work under a TT or any other RV is, pay someone to do it for you. If you use jack stands remember the weight ratings are for a pair, not a single stand.
