RE: 50 to 30 amp service

Your internal 30 amp main circuit breaker provides the protection for your MH. No problem.

RE: Story behind F450 pickup frame failure? (photo)

I am curious as to what shows it to be a 450.

RE: traveling through Dallas

Unless you are just truly adverse to traffic, just go straight thru Dallas. Even if you hit some heavy traffic, you will be in Ardmore set up at your site and enjoying yourself long before you would by taking an out of the way bypass route. I live just north of Dallas and do drive thru it, sometimes even during rush hour. I hate traffic as much as the next person. But it has never made sense to me to go miles out of the way, on smaller highways, small towns, lower speed limits, traffic lights, and a lot of extra time to miss a few miles of traffic that you will be thru in a relatively short time.

RE: "Now, Do I Look Like I've Got The Word Stupid......?"

From the pictures there is some small difference between the two on either side of the clamp along the rib. Whether that difference relates to something worth nearly double the price is not obvious. And yes, you do pay more for a "brand name". Edit: after looking at blown up pictures of each the difference in appearance is only due to different angles.

RE: Coach net vs good Sam hitch coverage?

You are not clear on what the problem is. If the hitch is simply not functioning right then the companies noted are not going to help. You would need to go to the manufacturer, or possibly the dealer you bought it from, for help. If the hitch has failed in such a way as you cannot disconnect, and at the same time cannot safely tow with it as it is connected, then you MIGHT get some help from ERS to get the rig to a service facility, or someone to come out and help getting it separated. But they still would not pay for correcting the hitch failure.

RE: traveling through Dallas

Middle of the day or on a weekend. Two choices in Dallas to get from I-45 to I-35E. From I-45 you can take I-30 west to I-35E. Or go slightly farther north and take loop 366/Woodall Rogers Freeway over to I-35E. I would opt for the 366/Woodall Rogers route myself. As you are passing downtown on I-45 stay in the right lanes and watch for the sign "TO 35E WACO/DENTON". And on 366/Woodall stay in the right lanes for exit to I-35E. You probably will have no problem, but always be prepared for traffic backups for one reason or the other. If you have google maps on your smart phone, check it as you enter the Dallas area. If there are traffic backups on a particular stretch of road it will show up as red on google maps with an explaination of the problem. If 366/Woodall shows red then the I-30 to I-35E may be better if it shows green.

RE: microwave/convection oven combo

Can I ask you folks what you are talking about - cooking on the rack? Does that mean you don't use a pan or sheet? How does that work - doesn't stuff fall through? The rack is simply a wire rack (or in some cases a thin metal pan) on short legs that sits on the turntable to hold your cooking pan off the bottom. It lets the hot air circulate under the food to cook thoroughly on the bottom as well as the top and sides. It is needed when using convection. But not when microwaving.

RE: Urgent pull rite hitch help needed

I had a Pullrite on my previous truck. Often I had a heck of a time pulling the handle to unhitch. Until I finally figured out that I just needed to put the truck in reverse and let it ease back into the hitch to relieve the pressure on the wrap around jaw. Then it would pull easily.

RE: Chevrolet Factory Hitch

Check the various hitch web sites to see if they have one to fit. On my Ford with the factory hitch prep, the "Ford accessory hitch" is the Reese Elite. But B&W, Curt, and Pullrite all make drop in hitches that fit the Ford factory puck system. So there are multiple choices, at least for Ford.

RE: Black Tank flush

I have not used it to flush the tank. But have used it when winterizing to pump antifreeze thru the black tank flush line. Don't see why you could not pump clean water thru it.

RE: How Long is Safe for an RV Power Extension Cord

Depends a lot also on what voltage you have to start with. Lot of difference if the park has 125 vac or 110 vac at the pedestal. Or somewhere in between.

RE: microwave/convection oven combo

We have cooked bisquits, rolls, and even cornbread in ours in the RV and the house and they come out fine. Practice with different temps. And as noted above, they do need a wire rack under the food.

RE: gooseneck adapter

I believe the Reese Goosebox is the only one approved by Lippert. It has an air bag and shock absorbers to soften the ride, just like the air ride pin boxes. But if you are still under warranty check with Lippert to make sure. Or get one of the 5th wheel hitches with under bed mount instead of rails so that you can remove the hitch and have a flat bed.

RE: I-10 best choice thru TX?

The basic answer is yes. But do check ahead for weather forecast. You will most likely have no problem, but there are occasional ice/snow storms that get into the hill country (west of San Antonio) and west TX. There have been rare occasions when I-10 has been temporarily closed in those areas due to ice. But never more than a day or so.

RE: Rockin' out (I guess)........how much is too much?

I would guess it is near universal that no one wants to hear music coming from a neighboring site. I would not complain unless it were overly loud or past quiet time. But it would still annoy me, even if it were music I liked.

RE: Branson MO camp grounds

KOA is the only one we have stayed at, and would again. Nice and very convenient to the strip.

RE: Is Hitching a Fiver Easier?

snip And some people have claimed that they cannot see their 5th wheel hitch from their truck's driver seat. Crew cab, short bed, and shorter people maybe? The center headrest of the rear seat of my Ford crew cab blocked my view of the hitch. Removed head rest. Problem solved. Same for me. I could see the hitch, but removing the head rest made it much easier. And have never had a passenger in that center seat anyway.

RE: Winterize in Texas?

Hmm -- I'm going to be getting a Jayco TT soon in Texas, and I think I will be following the directions for blowing out the lines too. But what *is* a safe pressure for the air blow? 40-45 psi which is about the same as standard water pressure.

RE: I'm locked out...

As above, we have a laundry chute into the bedroom. Had to climb into the basement and up thru the laundry chute once when we accidentally locked our only keys inside. Fortunately basement door was not locked. (Now I keep two extra sets in the truck)

RE: High cost of diesel

There's a sticky on this forum for fuel price discussion. Oops! :S Note on report card. Does not follow directions well.
