RE: Keeping residential fridge doors closed during travel

At an RV show last weekend I overheard a lady discussing that with a salesman. She said a friend had their residential style fridge door come open during travel and dump most everything in the floor. He was recommending straps something like these, the best I could tell from his description. Adhesive backed so there is no drilling required.

Check rvparkreviews.com for Terrell, TX. Some there but I don't know anything about them.

RE: Grand Canyon or Yellowstone for 2015?

Although they are both awesome, my first choice would be Yellowstone. And, yes, I have been to both. But I think your 2 nights there and 2 back is a bit ambitious. You are looking at around 1,500 miles each way. Although some is interstate, a lot is not, and your average speed will not be that great. So doing 500 miles a day for 3 days would probably mean 10 hours travel each day including stops, maybe more with 3 children. A killer if done for 3 straight days going and again coming back. A trip to Grand Canyon would also be great. And you could run the interstate almost all the way greatly improving your average speed and lowering your travel hours. 2 nights would be much more doable there.

RE: Recycled oil

Sounds like an urban myth from a Walmart hater.

RE: Hose Length for my 5er

15" above ground it may not even drain properly. I don't think my discharge pipe is that high off the ground. Never seen anything that high. Normally at or very near ground level. As far as length, I have a 15' sewer hose and that is all I have ever needed. But have heard of some where you would need 20' or more. They do sell extensions for some brands of sewer hose.

RE: antenna

Did you select "air" before you did the scan?

RE: Reinstall AC - bolt torque

Don't over tighten. I had a second AC installed. But when the tech got it installed it would not work. They said bad AC and ordered another one. Went back a week later to have the second one installed. But a different tech found that the first tech had over tightened the bolts on the first one and it would not let the fan turn. Loosened the bolts and retightened go the proper torque and it ran fine.

RE: fifthwheel brake wiring

Check wiring at axles and wheels for any place where the wiring insulation may have rubbed thru.

RE: Fifth Wheel to Class A Diesel

You might ask the moderator to move your post to the class A or 5th wheel forum.

RE: Keystone Big Sky

Big Sky was an option on the Montana for a few years. Now it is a separate model in itself. Full body paint was offered while it was still part of the basic Montana line. But, yes, they do look nice. Toured one at the Dallas RV show last weekend.

RE: How to figure out “Used” DP Coach Prices?

Options, condition, and very much that person's opinion of where he wants to start negotiations. And of course, some people think they should be able to recoup most all of their investment.

RE: Questions about Tractor Supply

I see nothing to indicate they are in any way associated. One (HF) is a privately held company. The other (TSC) is a publicly traded company.

RE: RV Parks from Flagstaff to Wichita Falls Texas

For unfamiliar areas I always look at a map to where i expect to be come time to stop and then check rvparkreviews.com for parks with good ratings. And call ahead for availability. In Amarillo we always stay at Ft Amarillo RV park on the western edge of Amarillo. Easy access to I-40, long pull thrus, and lots of restaurants and shopping nearby.

RE: It's a Shame!

........ Why not include an upgraded tire as an option? ........ Don't know about all Keystone brands, but Montana does offer the Goodyear G614 tires as an option.

RE: Hill Country Texas State Parks

We like Kerrville Schreiner Park. Formerly a state park now owned by the city. Very large park (500+ acres) with relatively few RV sites. Split in two sections by the highway; river side - along the Guadalupe River, and the hill side - much larger side with lots of hiking/biking trails. Deer often come grazing thru the sites. We prefer the hill side.

RE: Class A - How often should it be driven?

Sounds like you are talking about only 1,000 to 1,500 miles per year and maybe 8-10 travel days and 25 to 30 hours on the road. I don't think a MH would be the best choice. Just my opinion.

RE: Which music software do you recommend?

Actually getting your music from your iPad back to a new computer is quite easy had it not died. I transferred all my music from an iPod i had loaded from my desktop to a new laptop. Much of that music came from CDs. And it all transferred to the laptop. Unfortunately I don't remember the exact steps now. But I just googled it and came up with how to do it. Also have it all on my iPhone.

RE: Front bath.

Saw several front baths at the RV show. Nice. But seem to use up a lot of square footage that could be better used in the living areas.
