RE: RV Vacation Rental Trade for Transporting Used RV?

The outfit you are wanting to get to in New Braunfels Tx. will come and pick up your rig. I have dealt with them previously and highly recommend their company.

RE: Crazy Accident

bmet2000 X 2.It just makes sense to do this. Whats more there should be a policeman at the merge point to keep things orderly. Traffic moves a lot better this way.

RE: RV Vacation Rental Trade for Transporting Used RV?

There are companies that will furnish bonded drivers to transport any type of vehicle to a destination. Turning your rig over to unknown people in my estimation is far too risky. An RV is not a common vehicle, it needs some one who has some knowledge of many different systems, propane, proper electrical hook ups, on and on. Then as noted by o/p's the liability issue is immense. Check with a local RV dealer of some size, they usually know of individuals that will drive for so much a mile, but they are responsible.

RE: Stanley Steamer

I would personally recommend the dry method. I always used it and it does a first class job. No waiting to use RV afterwards. One never knows what kind of cheap pad, (if any), RV Manft's use under carpet. Mold spores are always present. The cost is about the same. Another approach to this (which is much less costly), is use the "Resolve" dry carpet cleaner, brush it in, let it set for a hour and vacuum it up.It does a great job on pet stains. Resolve is available in any Grocery store, or Wal-Mart.

RE: Maintenance RV or not? What is your style?

I do a aircraft type SOAP check which consist of a walk around. Check tire pressures often, fluids, make sure it is clean. I do not touch any bolts or screws other than check battery cables. Once a year I will check the lug nuts with a torque wrench. After 40 years, so good, no down time on the road.

RE: Car carriers are the worst

I always found box trucks the most disturbing as they passed. It did not matter if I was driving a M/H or a TT they always had worst disturbance.

RE: New Member from Indiana

Welcome to the gang, great bunch and you will add your dimension. I am sure that you bought a winner. It sounds like it was well cared for. Sure you will find something you don't like, but with your background, my bet is you will handle it. HAPPY RV'g

RE: bed in a bag

Follow up to previous post. I bought mine from the guy that at one time owned the Forum Irv2. He sells them or did. He now owns a RV supply company much on the order of C/W except he is all online. I cannot recall his name right now, I will see if I can find it.

RE: bed in a bag

Thanks for the "clicky". I thought you might be referring to the Travasak. I have had one for a number of years and I really like it. What could be easier than just rolling up your bed in the morning. The sheets come out easy and are easy to install again after washing. I have never seen the weather cold enough to bother me in the Travasac.

RE: bed in a bag

I am not sure you are talking about a bed in a bag, which most stores sell including Costco. Or are you talking about the "Travesack" which basically a huge sleeping bag with built in removable sheets. I have one of the latter and really like it. I even take it to motels so I don't have to lay on what may be unchanged bedding.

RE: How do you feel about those dashboard placards

Look at it this way. It is the campgrounds way of taking inventory daily. If you do not want your address on the placard, take it off, they could care less. They are interested in the date in and date out. If this sort of thing upsets your wife, what she doesn't know about the world of cyber information would send her to her grave early. Be careful but don't get paranoid over it. I have a sister that lives in hell worrying about stuff like this.

RE: 1937 Packard RV

Not for me. I like the 1937 packard as a car, but I do not want an RV that looks like this thing. IMHO.

RE: Why Is It....

The life style of any RV is its own worst enemy. They set for long periods of time with out any kind of maintenance. Then we suddenly want to take off and we expect everything to be perfect. I can almost guantee you if you used it every day you would not have so many problems. However that being said the statement the mfg use the cheapest******available just to get it to the dealers lot is also very true. You pays your money and you takes your chances, this includes high end m/h, 5vers and TT's.

RE: First Trip/Last Trip

I know from where you come. I am in the same boat and tried the same resolution. It did not work for me either. I tried several times and it just would not work. My wife and I were very close. I hope you find a way to do it. For me I hung it all up and have not regretted it. We traveled for over 40 years together. I am so sorry about your loss, I feel your pain.

RE: Oxygen concentrators

I believe this is one of the most intelligent and informative articles I have read on the forums in a long time. Thanks to a great bunch for bringing those of us that did not have this knowledge up to speed.

RE: Michigan...shopping.????

Frankenmuth Michigan may be the kind of place you are looking for. It is all about Christmas,(the entire town) and great eating. Just South of Saginaw on Michigan 83. One day will not be enough to do the whole town.

RE: 2014 Southwind 34 HideABed won't lay flat

Definitely follow up on this. The new Fleetwood company is really trying to create a new image. If it is a manf problem they probably want to fix it.

RE: Recycling in Great Smoky Mountains National Park

A very succinct and subtle invitation to clean up your act. Kudos to you "daamac"

RE: RV antifreeze in BW tank

Empty the tank after a good flush. The o/p who mentioned washer fluid is right as far as the valve and drain goes. The tank does not need anything.

RE: Large but small PuP

This is a five star rig.
