RE: 50 amp outlet tester

I made one from instructions on myrv.us/electric/Pg/tester_50amp.htm. Fairly easy to make and it will test voltage and if all the connections are correct. And with my 50 to 30 dogbone adapter, I can use it to check 30 amp outlets when a park does not have 50 amp outlets. Simple volt meter will not check for reverse polarity, open ground, or some other potential wiring issues.

RE: Hot water no longer works on electric

I have almost always run mine on both gas and electric at the same time for 7 years and no problem doing it. Those devices do fail.

RE: Hot water no longer works on electric

My first guess would be the high temp cutout has failed, especially since you have already had to reset it several times. Suburban? Easily replaced.

RE: Front cap added insulation

Would mean dismantling my entire front closet. And the front cap sure isn't coming off. Ain't gonna happen.

RE: Backing up for a new RV driver

Yeah, worried me too the first time I saw it. But after you get the trailer straightened up and move another foot or so, the wheels will straighten also. If you need to, you can pull forward a couple feet and backup a couple feet for further straightening.

RE: How safe is Camco antifreeze

I flush the lines until the water runs clear. Then don't worry about it. • Safe • Odorless • Tasteless • No mixing required • Non-Toxic • according to Camco.

RE: Thinking about Def

................. which could possibly effect resale of the vehicle down the road due to the additional fuel system. ........... DEF is not an additional fuel system. The fluid is injected into the exhaust flow at the SCR to reduce pollutants. DEF explained

RE: Thinking about Def

I think you are over thinking it. No way of ever knowing what, if anything, will replace it in the near or distant future. And what ever comes along next may be even less desirable, making the DEF trucks more desirable. DEF is not a problem. In my case, I add it about twice a year. Otherwise I never think about it.

RE: ventless or vented washer dryer combo?

I already have enough problems with moisture/humidity in my RV. I certainly wouldn't want to add more with a ventless dryer. Read the comments above, or go to Splendide web site and read how non vented units work.

RE: Poor attitude at top rated Good Sam Park, Phoenix,AZ

I am a dog owner. And, in general, would not mind a dog peeing in the grass along the edge of the site. But I do also sympathize with that lady. If I had plants and decorative rocks I would not at all appreciate someone letting their dog pee on them. In that case the problem is the dog owner, not the site occupant, and the owner should know better. Either let the dog pee before you leave your site, or keep it in the middle of the street until you reach the dog park. As far as Good Sam I am sure they rate the park based on facilities, not the personality of the residents.

RE: ventless or vented washer dryer combo?

The unvented units DO NOT put moisture inside the RV. Read up on how they actually work and you will find that they are sealed units that use a process to convert the moisture the a vapor, use cold water to condense it back to a liquid, and then drain it. But. The unvented units do use a lot more water due to the condensing cycle. And they take longer to dry the clothes.

RE: Good Sams or FMCA Road side Assistance

......... . Is it Coach Net with a new name or if not who is doing the towing. ........ Coach-net and FMCA (Family Motor Coach Association) are not the same. But I think they both contract out to local towing companies for their services.

RE: Adding Washer & Dryer

Most newer 5th wheels of a somewhat large size have a "designated" space for W/D installation. May or may not already have prep (water and drain) installed. If it does not have a closet already sized for the W/D I reall don't know where you would put one. Shorter trailers may well not have the space available.

RE: I remember when----???? (camping version).

When I was a kid it was cots under the stars, not even a tent. Coleman lanterns and stoves. If it rained a little, out came tarps. If too much rain or storm, pack up and go home as we were typically on dirt roads down to whatever creek we could get to. Parks with paved or rocked roads came much later. Gradually graduated to tents in the late 60's. Never an RV until 2007. What a change.

RE: Washer/Dryer Combo??

We have a Splendide combo vented bought new in 2007 and still works great. Never a problem.

RE: Annual cost to fulltime

The way I see it is you only need to look at the costs of your RV site. Stay at a cheaper RV park for a few hundred a month? Or at a higher class park for much more. Once decided that will be a fixed cost. All other costs is up to you, and is money you would spend whether in an RV or house. Things like food, entertainment, and such depends entirely on you as to what you are satisfied with. Some can live on very little. Others must go to expensive restaurants a few nights per week and entertainment regularly. There would be some costs to maintain your RV. But you would have most of that whether you full timed or not unless you intended to travel a lot of miles during that year. Then again, a variable due to your desires.

RE: 5th wheel hitch

I have a chevy 2500 diesel and pull a 36 ft Bristol bay by sunny Brook. I have bottom of line reese hitch. When I am pulling I get alot of boucing in my truck. Need to buy better 5th wheel hitch and looking for the best to use for smooth ride I have a Reese Pro 16K that I am disgusted with how much slop there is on the jaws.we get a "CLANK" with every start and stop. Go to Lowes or Home Depot, get a thin plastic conduit box cover (in blue in the picture), drill a hole in the center the size of the hitch shaft, cut out one side so that it is in the shape of a C, push it down on the shaft between the hitch base and the hitch cradle, and the clank will stop. http://i906.photobucket.com/albums/ac270/BB_TX/image.jpg

RE: Looking for RV companion?

If you google RV singles, there are a lot of RV clubs/organizations for single RVers. You might go to one of those forums and post your question. There may well be other singles who would jump at the chance for some companionship on the road.

RE: Roadside Assistance

CoachNet has the fewest folks complaining here. I agree with this. I read many many posts concerning roadside service before I decided. Although both Good Sam and Coach-net subscribers generally seem to be happy with their choice, if you search on the subject and do a lot of reading you will find more complaints/problems with Good Sam than Coach-net.
