RE: Are we just Too Picky!!

Many times the sofa and recliners can be position swapped if that would meet your needs.

RE: toilet valve won't hold water

I have a Sealand toilet. At about 2 yrs it would not hold water. Took it apart, cleaned the rubber seal, lubed it with Pam (per Sealand), put it back together and it held water for several years. Same problem this year but cleaning did not work. Had to replace the hardened rubber seal. On mine there is a metal band something like an oversize hose clamp that holds the top half of the toilet to the bottom half. Loosen the band and the top half lifts off. No need to remove the bottom half.

RE: San Antonio

We have also stayed at Travelers World and would again. The street in front goes straight downtown and is an easy short drive to convenient parking to Riverwalk, Alamo, etc. And as stated above, call and ask directions for your direction of travel. You do not want to arrive via Southcross Blvd from the east due to the rail crossing. Military is a much better route from the east.

RE: Montana vs. bighorn

What socoguy said. All comes done to personal opinion. We also have a Montana that we bought new in 2007. As close to trouble free as I could hope for. Considering trading for a new Montana. Don't know anything about the bighorn.

RE: Who's Sleeping with Who?

There are a number of different companies. But really there are only so many configurations you can come up with on a rig that is 8' wide and 35'-40' long.

RE: Probably a Silly Question

As stated, it then becomes a wagon. And it is very difficult to back a wagon.

RE: winterizing

I found it helps to set the jug about the elevation on the winterize connection. Makes it easier to draw the antifreeze out than sitting on the ground.

RE: winterizing

If it is like mine, there will be a switch to select winterize. I turn another switch to bypass the water heater. Then I get about 3 gallons of antifreeze, a short hose to connect to the winterize connection, the other end in a jug of antifreeze, and turn on the water pump. It will pump the antifreeze from the jug into the water lines. I open a faucet until I see antifreeze come out, close it, and move to the next faucet, until I have done them all including the toilet. That also puts antifreeze in the traps. Also do the outside shower connection. And I have a washer/dryer so I also winterize the pipes to it by running the washer thru the cold line and then thru the hot line it until I see antifreeze in the washer from each. I also open the low point drain lines until I see antifreeze come out each of those. And I drain the fresh water tank and the water heater. No antifreeze in those.

RE: 5th Wheel vs Class A

You can get new 5ers with auto leveling systems and power awnings. So set up is not much different than setting up a MH. Disconnect the truck in one case, disconnect the toad in the other. Or leave either connected for overnighters. Then it is just electric/water/sewer. We chose a 5er due to our travel. 2,500-3,000 miles per year and only actually on the highway 10-12 days per year. Did not make sense to have a MH sit idle 355 days per year.

RE: Utility trailer question- how to make it work?

Can't help on finding the trailer. But I agree with above about backing. I have an 8' utility trailer, a 16' farm trailer, and a 35' 5er. The 8' trailer is by far the most difficult to back as it responds so much faster to small turns from the truck.

RE: Dish Tailgater

On mine, the external coax for park cable came into a two coax connector wall plate beneath the TV with a short jumper between the two coax connectors. That brought the external signal into the wall plate and the jumper redirected it to the TV amplifier/switch box. I could remove the jumper and connect a coax cable from one of the coax connectors on the wall plate to the sat receiver box. And the Tailgater and sat receiver box worked fine. I later added a second external coax connector specifically for the sat box. So, if you have a wall plate with two coax connectors on it and a short coax jumper between the two, you may be able to remove the jumper and attach a new coax cable from one of the coax connectors on the wall plate to the receiver box. If it does not work from the first, try the second.

RE: RV anti-freeze

I use Prestone RV Antifreeze as it is propylene glycol based, whereas some of the other brands are ethyl alcohol based. Don't know what affect mixing propylene glycol based type with ethyl alcohol based type would have. Maybe those posting above know.

RE: What they loved. HD Challange

I have not actually tried manually folding mine, but twice upon returning to my truck in a parking lot I found one of the mirrors folded where someone had apparently bumped against it. I just hit the switch to fold the other one, then hit it again and both unfolded. No problem. I expect the extend/retract would be the same.

RE: Those with tire pressure monitoring systems..

10% pressure rise is about what I see. I set mine at about 76 psi (running less than rated load on the tires) and at highway speeds I see them rise to around 84 psi on average.

RE: What they loved. HD Challange

I guess there are other things just as important as 0-60 times :B Don't tell Howie and GM. Yeah, after the commercials by GM and Howie trying to make fun of Ford's "man step" they finally broke down and added a bumper step.

RE: Mold already??!!!!

You should NOT expect mold in a one year old trailer. With that much mold I would be asking them to replace it. No way are you, or they, going to get that mold out without basically tearing it apart and replacing a lot of materials. Jumping the gun here dont ya think? Many diff reasons for mold and most are easily fixed. That's what I thought too. Mold spores exist everywhere. They are always floating unseen in the air. Basically all they need is the right climate to grow (a combination of moisture and still air). I have seen enough mold to know that what you see is often the tip of the iceberg. Since it was "all along the back end" it is likely also beneath/behind the associated materials.

RE: pic

Being that large and green first guess is it is a ground wire. Can you see what would be a ground terminal in the vicinity? Also looks like those may be mating terminals just to the right of it. But since there are at least two of them, can't say which if any are right. And of course it may have never been connected.

RE: RV Parks

I don't think that "many" is the correct word. I have never stayed at one that had the 10 yr rule. But I have heard of them. I think they tend to be the "higher class" RV parks that cater to the higher dollar RVs. Not a place we stay at any way.
