RE: Disney World Fort Wilderness

What week are you going? We will be there from 6-14 June. I have reservations but am still trying to decide what loop to request and stuff.

RE: For those with outdoor kitchens....

I've never had a problem with my outdoor fridge keeping stuff cold, it gets warm in that area on hot days but I've never thought it was too hot or anything. Maybe we have different fridges but mine seems to not put out as much heat as I thought it would. It doesn't have the exposed coils on the back like most fridges have. I've camped in over 100 degree weather a lot.

RE: Keystone Bullet Premier

Nice! Was the glass you ordered cut to fit? I didn't even think to just replace the glass in the existing frame.

RE: Branson Mo campgrounds

Like others have said, the State Park is great, I've stayed at the Branson KOA a couple times and like it. The KOA is kind of in the middle between the Strip and Table Rock Lake.

RE: Keystone Bullet Premier

I like that window! I've always hated the glass in the ones on there now, I would love ot be able to see out of it and the fact that it opens is even better! I don't like the price though:-(

RE: Frameless windows

I have the frameless on my 2010, I have had no problems with them chipping or anything like that. For some reason my Dinette window leaked during a very long driving rain a few months ago, I ran a bead of silicon across the top and it has never happened again, so I did that to the rest of my windows.

Bunk House storage

We moved to FL from KS and stayed in the TT for a little over a month while we waited to move into a house, of course my wife needed drawers and storage for all of her and our 2 boy's clothes and stuff. I found that these bins fit perfectly under the lower bunk when I removed the Trundle bed and the other bins fit perfectly when I removed the mattress from the over-the-entertainment center bunk. http://i1020.photobucket.com/albums/af329/wayloncle/null-6.jpg width=600 http://i1020.photobucket.com/albums/af329/wayloncle/null-4.jpg width=600

RE: Keystone Bullet Premier

I didn't have mine replaced, it was out of warranty, I got it realigned and has been good so far. I don't think mine bent after I purchased it though, I think it wasn't aligned from the start. I think I paid $175 for the alignment.

RE: Moved from Kansas to Florida, storing questions

I close the blinds, plug the vents and shut it up tight and never had a problem. Moving to NW Florida will afford you the best beach camping in the country IMO. Are there places to camp right on the beach, or edge of it, that you know of around the Panama City area? I haven't done a whole lot of research on it, been busy finding a house and what-not, but haven't seen anywhere that is right on the beach. I've never been a big beach person, I grew up in Arkansas and have been in the midwest most of my military career....but I have enjoyed it here so far!

RE: Moved from Kansas to Florida, storing questions

I am not in FL but almost (~65 miles) and so have the same sun and humidity issues. I leave my vents open and use damp rid in my TT. Keep a bucket sitting in the bathroom on the counter. I use the ones that are about 3-4 cup size container and just replace when it gets full. I use the fragrance free or the charcoal one depending on my mood when I pick them up. If you have to store in base storage, you can use these without having power. Since I can buy these for $2 each, I figure I can buy a whole lot of them (years worth) before I can buy a mechanical dehumidifer and don't have to worry about electricity either. PS, I wish I was at Tyndall FAMCAMP right now... my kids grew up going to the beach there. spent many a night relaxing there. It's a nice camp. I'm surprised the base beach isn't more busy! I guess people don't like the long boardwalk out to it? It will be in base storage so no power, we will be living on base so it will be close anyway.

RE: Moved from Kansas to Florida, storing questions

I got a roll of the bubble wrap with foil on the sides, I don't know the name of it but that's what it looks like, I cut pieces out that fit in the windows and use that. for about a week before we left KS we stayed in the McConnell AFB FamCamp, which is nice since they built the new one, but there is no shade at all. Those pieces helped a lot, I even cut some that fit in the vent holes. On the doors I put little velcro tapes on the corners of the window and covered those. The Tyndall AFB FamCamp is very shaded so I haven't needed to use all my window blockers since we have been here.

RE: Moved from Kansas to Florida, storing questions

Thanks! That's kind of what I was expecting but just wanted to make sure. Yes, I do have MaxAir covers on them. We've been here, Panama City area, for about 3 weeks now and have enjoyed it so far! I don't see that changing anytime soon.

Moved from Kansas to Florida, storing questions

The Air Force decided they needed us in NorthWest Florida more than they needed us in Kansas, I'm not mad about their decision;-) I have nothing against KS, had a great time there and met wonderful people, the base change was needed though. It gets hot and humid in KS, and of course it's a little more consistently humid in FL, do I need to do anything special when I store my TT? We are still living in it right now, have been for about a month, but will be moving into a house in a week. In KS I always left the roof vents open while it was in the storage lot and never had a problem, how should I keep it parked here to make sure it doesn't get all moldy and stuff? Thanks for any info.

RE: Keystone Bullet Premier

Earlier I posted about my tub being cracked and leaking in the front corner, after sealing that all up I kept looking under the tub to make sure there were no more leaks. I kept seeing a little water leak down under there in two places, one in the front of the tub and one on the right side (if you are standing in the tub) It took me a while to figure it out but water was leaking in behind those plastic rivet looking things on the surround that hold it against the walls, I couldn't figure out how to remove them without breaking them so I lifted the edge of the rivet with a screwdriver and pressed silicone behind them. That finally stopped all the small puddles of water forming under the tub while using the shower. I think it is worth it to pull that plastic cover off so you can see under the tub to look around after a shower to make sure you don't have any leaks collecting under there. I probably would have never noticed the small rivet leaks, untill they rotted out the wall, if it weren't for the big leak in the corner of mine.

RE: Keystone Bullet Premier

I pull my 31BHPR with my '09 Silverado 1/2 ton. I think it does a great job towing it even through the hills. I recently moved from Kansas to Florida and was packed way heavier than on a normal camping trip. Did great all the way down, of course there are no rocky mountains on that route but I don't htink you will be disappointed with a newer 1/2 ton truck. Especially with the little amount you said you would tow it.

RE: Keystone Bullet Premier

Would you mind sharing the item number for those LED lights? Talking about the tub leaking out a little and stuff... I've seen water on the floor of the bathroom below that plastic cover after the shower has been used several times, I just figured it was water running around the top edge of the tub and running down the outside in that corner since I'm a little nose high (and usually am so the AC drains off the back of the TT) yesterday I noticed it was worse but the outside of that corner wasn't wet so I got to looking. Both edges of the tub behind the surround tapers down and leaves a couple inches without the tub protruding up behind the surround. I sealed those sections with some silicon and had my flashlight looking around the edge of the tub where the surround meets the tub, in the front right I noticed some little pieces of plastic behind the surround in the corner so I used a screw driver to move those and saw the tub was cracked in that corner! So the water was on top of the tub running to that corner and through the crack/broken corner and down below the tub. The water could be seem seeping below the wall in the hallway where the tub meets the wall as well. So I squirted about a quarter tube of silicon under there and used a spatula to stick under there to squish the sealant into the crack. I removed that cover and I could see where it was broken and I could see the sealant squeezing through so I know I got it sealed good. Just something to check for if anyone sees water on the floor and don't know exactly where it's coming from!

RE: Keystone Bullet Premier

Now that's a good way to do it! Good job! I still haven't installed mine, I think I will copy you!

RE: Keystone Bullet Premier

The shower surround is supposed to be unsealed at the bottom, there is no way for water to go under that and up over the lip of the tub behind the surround. My shower leaked onto the floor while camping one weekend, but I figured out it was because I had it pretty unlevel, nose high i think, it was one of the first times using the TT. I've never had the problem again. Maybe it's because I'm more careful about where the shower head is facing and stuff....

RE: Hard start capacitor

I swapped out the SP66E for the non E. it's taller than the E, so I had to break off the tab on top and it fit perfect beside my other capacitor in the box. I didn't get a chance to try it out with my generator, but it sounded better when it kicked on while plugged into the pedestal. http://s1020.photobucket.com/albums/af329/wayloncle/?action=view┬Ąt=null-2.jpg&evt=user_media_share height=640 width=640
