RE: Travel Trailer Cover? Good/Bad Idea?

To avoid getting on the roof you lay your cover on the groung. Fold the sides onto the roof portion of the cover. Next fold it in half length wise. Now roll it up back to front. Put your ladder at the side of your camper towards the front. Place your cover on the roof. Unroll it as far as you can move your ladder unroll it more. When completely unrolled flip the sides down and secure the cover. This is all done without ever getting on the roof and with one person. Two people, two ladders it is even quicker.

RE: Travel Trailer Cover? Good/Bad Idea?

I have never once had to get on my roof to cover my camper. It is all done from a ladder. I will always keep mine covered during the winter. No worries about ice forming any where on the roof, it would be on the cover, trailer is clean when uncovered. Cover any sharp edges strap it down tight and the wind is not a worry.

RE: Another 10 week wait, no big deal.

Bet you would not have been so understanding if this was May? This is the perfect time for it to happen, though.

RE: Hand wash only, air dry...

Sorry hear about your problem. I never use a car wash with brushes. You never know if some one used it before and their vehicle was loaded with mud. Since my truck is black I don't want sratches.

RE: Installing Cover on Wet Trailer

No need to get on the roof to put the cover on. Lay it on the ground top of the roof cover facing up. Fold the sides over it fold the cover in half roll it up. Put it on the roof roll it out toss the straps over the sides pull down the sides of the cover, strap it down, done. You might have to move your ladder to get it over your ac cover but it is better than getting on the roof.

RE: Mass Pike Tolling. HUGE INCREASE for campers!!!

I would bet the if to took rt20 instead of the pike your gas usage would cost you more than the toll?

RE: Good Sam ERS Surprise

I would not have payed the charge. Call GS and ask about while the guy is there waiting. Then let him call the police if he wants. He was scamming you and he won. I would bet he would have left while you were on the phone. Losing money standing around waiting. But there is no way I would have paid.

RE: Cold weather towing with water tank filled?

I would think that the motion from driving would keep the tank from freezing, but what about the lines?

RE: Nebraska Weight Station?

I would bet they are looking for pu hauling construction or landscape trailers not rv.

RE: Pilot/Flying J reserve a spot

If I need a couple of hours sleep I just pull into a rest stop, go in the camper and take my nap, then hit the road.

RE: Driving - Day or Night

Depends on where we are going. When we go from western mass to myrtle beach I leave around 7:00 pm get through NYC around 9:30 pm and through richmond before there is any traffic. Then it is clear sainling the rest of the way down 95. Driving at night allow you to go through big cities and not have to take the longer route to avoid them, saves time, gas and money. Of course I work nights so not a problem sleep wise.

RE: Covered indoor or shrink wrapped storage in Michigan

Do not shrink wrap it. It could cause servere mold problems. Trailers need to breath, if want it covered invest in an rv cover, i.e. ADCO.

RE: 1800 miles in 3 days with 3 kids in a truck. Crazy or not

Not crazy at all. If your kids behave and you don't mind the driving, go for it. If you can drive at night the kids might sleep which could make it easier, plus way less traffic. Good luck let us know what you decide.

RE: I-91 Sprigfield Mass

Take 91 I drive it daily in my commute and came through there with my tt a month ago. It was not perfect but way better than taking rt 5. Lanes seem narrow due to the jersey barriers but they are normal width.

RE: Portable icemaker?

My wife wanted one I was dead set against it. Thought they were gimmicks, they would not work as stated, would not work in the heat. Well she bought one and boy was I wrong. We used it in SC this summer, upper 90's 100 one day. Kept it outside, dumped the tray in our cooler when it got full, never bought ice for two weeks. The cooler was kept outside in the shade so it made a lot of ice. The model she bought makes 50# a day off f you keep dumping it when the tray is full. The only noise it made was the sound of ice dumping in the tray.

RE: USRoute 20 vs I-90 New York.

You don't need two transponders just get one for your truck. The toll booths read your axles and adjust your classification based on that.

RE: Portable Air Conditioner

I used one last year year when my ac broke and it did the job kept the camper at 82. We were in full sun and it was mid to upper 90s outside. Yes loud but better than no ac. Try yours and go from there.
