RE: Best state to register a Class A RV in?

Registration fees are actually one of the rare places that NY State is pretty reasonable. All non-commercial passenger vehicles (includes motorhomes) over 6951 lbs pay $70 per year. But then do they charge you personal property tax on the RV? I have a friend who recently bought a boat in California. He was surprised that the registration fee on the boat was so low in this state. I think it's $15 every two years. He didn't realize he was going to get a tax bill from the County Tax Assessor charging personal property taxes on it until I told him. No, NY does not levy personal property taxes. Some downstate cities or counties do add on a vehicle use tax, but it's not actually a registration fee even though it's collected as a part of the registration process. The tax is typically $15/year as I recall. A few counties also charge a $25/year commuter transportation district fee. For most of us registered in NY though, that $70/year is all we pay.

RE: Winegard Travler Owners Manual 72 Sat

Nimiq 5 at 72.7 is the correct satellite.Can you manually select and receive it with your Travler? I don't have a Trav'ler, I use a tripod mounted 1000.4 for the Dish eastern and western arc satellites.

RE: SPAM?? "Your account will be blocked ...."

I've gotten a number of those "You must confirm/update/change your account info." type messages. For the most part, they've been for places I don't even have an account. SPAM...

RE: Hard start A/C capacitor worth getting?

I installed a hard start cap on one of my two 19 year old roof A/C's to replace a badly corroded OEM start cap. I immediately noticed that the 7KW generator didn't "grunt" anywhere near as much starting that A/C as it did starting the other one. Both now have SPP6-E hard starts installed.

RE: generator

What size is your generator in watts?

RE: What do you tow behind your Motorhome?

We're towing our second Toyota RAV4. I installed the required Remco transmission pump, along with a Blue Ox base plate. We tow using a ReadyBrute Elite tow bar with an integrated ReadyBrake auxiliary brake system. We chose the RAV4 because we already had the first one, a 2002, and really liked it. When it was time for something newer, all of the tow gear except the base plate could be moved to a new 2011 RAV4, so that's what we did. They both tow well, and haven't given us any problems.

RE: RV Campground Andriod Apps

KOA is outrageous with their high prices and over abundance of RV park rules!! But when a KOA is the only viable option where you want to be, the app is a very handy tool...

RE: My water leaks out

It does appear that your fresh water drain valve may be leaking. Working it back and forth may get it to seat better... Or not.

RE: Toilet filling with water by itself!

Possibly the outside tap does not fully shut off? Try shutting it off and disconnecting the hose. Also make sure there's no water in the fresh tank and/or the pump is shut off. If the toilet continues to fill after that, call in a shaman! :E :B

RE: ADA compliant sites

"ADA compliant" does not necessarily mean "Handicapped Only". Many businesses, such as restaurants and others, maintain an "ADA compliant" access, restroom facilities and so on, that are of course also open to the general public. If a handicapped placard or plate was a perquisite for reserving and using the site, I'd expect that requirement would be spelled out in the reservation process.

RE: Interesting Insurance issue I just discovered-Progressive

Ask Progressive about an "Agreed Value" policy. You may need an appraisal though.

RE: temp patch on a cracked gray water pipe ??

I keep a roll of Eterna-Bond on board for emergency roof repairs, but I've also found it useful for temporary black/gray/fresh tank repairs, as well as temporary repairs to various drain pipes and fittings. I've even used it to stop a leaking fresh water line by wrapping the leak with Eterna-Bond and then overwrapping it with mechanics wire.

RE: Yokohama Tires

I've had Yokohamas on various cars and trucks (including HDT's) over the years, and don't recall any problems with them.

RE: Parkways?

DO NOT USE ANY PARKWAYS IN NEW YORK STATE!!!! They were built for car traffic ONLY and many do have overpasses as low a 10'. This goes for ALL Parkways all over NYS! Not all NYS parkways are the same. I've driven my 12' high coach on the Robert Moses Parkway from Niagara Falls to Four Mile Creek State Park, and then the Lake Ontario State Parkway from the park to Rochester, with no clearance problems. The Lake Ontario Parkway has a stretch that's rougher than a cob, but that's a different issue.

RE: flying J Petol

Yup this is a Snooze story not a news story... And it does not affect RVers except for a possible price incrcase at the pump to pay for it. With competitive forces playing a major role in retail fuel pricing, it may not have any effect at all at the pump. To put that $92 million fine in perspective, it amounts to just a bit over one day's gross sales.

RE: SeeLevel Tank Monitor System

FYI, There is now two different seelevel systems.. The old one used the original sensor wiring if it was there; each sensor had a seperate wire. The new one uses a one wire setup between all the sensors. The old one (at least as of 2008) also only needed a single wire (plus ground) to connect all the tank sensors except the LP to the display. Depending on the tank layout, it sometimes works out better to use one of the original sensor wires at each tank though, tying them together at the display for connection to the single input wire. On my installation for example, I used one wire from the original gray tank sensors to bring the new black and gray sensor signals to the display input, and a separate original wire from a fresh tank sensor to bring that new sensor's signal to the same display input.

RE: For what it's worth...Flying J and Pilot

OK, so employees who were given too much responsibility with too little oversight decided they could pad their income. The company will pay the government a really big fine to make it all go away. The public gets very little if nothing in return. But the government is happy. The significant part of the report is that the corporation was not involved in a plan to cheat the system. Why should the "public" get anything from this? The companies that were shorted on the rebate program are being paid in full, and the fine will go into the federal budget general fund.
