RE: Olympian wave catalytic heaters

I used an Olympic for two years in a 36ft motor home. I ran it while parked and while running on the road. I had zero problems with it. I allowed for fresh air income. My greatest problem wAS moisture build up. They do create a lot water vapor, but it is tolerable.

RE: Using foam in a can to fill gaps

I have used it in several rigs to plug gaps and voids. It pays to go easy as it does expand considerably. They have a new low expansion product out now. I prefer the original as I can cut back over burden.

RE: Would selling this trailer be irresponsible?

You have done your moral duty, actually above and beyond. The next move is theirs to make. I would sell it with a final warning about getting larger tow vehicle.

RE: Dumping fresh water

My first trip many years ago I took off and left the valve open on the FRESH water tank. I figured it just good ole plain water, however the other people on the highways did not know that and I was stopped 3 times by well meaning citizens about a big leak in my RV. Never done that again. I now keep about 15 gallons in the tank until I get home and then drain it into 5 gal buckets and pour it on the flower gardens. I cannot believe people read anything but FRESH into your post. These people vote!

RE: More...Why do they build such junk!

Punomatic: What you describe is true. I can't attest to the drug addicts, but as far as the general drift of your post it's right on. I have nephews that tried it and this is exactly what they encountered. I have toured a number of RV plants and found some of them to abysmal to revolting for working conditions. Even those plants that hire predominately Amish, whose work ethics are normally quite good, will eventually decline. There are some good manufacturers, but they are scarce.

RE: Are RV forums dying?

This has been a very interesting thread, a lot great thinking. Personally I like the forums and actually really I like it the way it is. I am glad to see duplicity, it isn't generally done on purpose, some one has a question and they ask it. If I don't think I can contribute I let it slip on by. No skin off my nose. I get a little bent out of shape about all the new electronics and the many problems they have with them, but that is the new world. I just go out to the campfire and pop another silver bullet.

RE: Are RV forums dying?

I have been on the forums for about 16 years now. I have noticed that hyper electronics has replaced what at one time was guys helping each other with the 454's and 460's, handling characteristics of the coaches, how to correct handling problems. Slides were not even heard of yet, so there was a lot of Mods talked about to gain a little more storage etc. Every one really tried to help the other guy get his trip in. I am not faulting any one, it is what it is; a different world. Newer more sophisticated equipment, electronics and wizardry took the place of nuts and bolts (get her down the road) RV'g and camping.

RE: More...Why do they build such junk!

The first mantra in an RV manufacturer is get it built and out the door. They do not train their people. It usually isn't the employee's fault he would just as soon do it right, but he is not taught right. Don't blast the employees. I am not nor ever have been an employee of a RV manufacturer. I have known people that have been or still are; they are pushed to the limit. There are exceptions, like "Travel Supreme", but then they went broke, but made a good rig.

RE: Newbie here, no RV, but have serious situation. need advice

Many of the Canadians I know have to purchase additional insurance when they are here for the winter. Their rates for treatment are far cheaper than what our institutions will accept.

RE: Newbie here, no RV, but have serious situation. need advice

I would put her in assisted living and bring the dog home with you. The poster on the insurance problem is right on, and this is not time to test the water on that. There are many other consequential matters to consider here as well as her daily mobility.

RE: Dealers ... why, just why

Every time I ever took a coach in for service of any kind I ended up with a far bigger mess than I went in with. There was one exception and I will never forget it. "The Winnebago factory". You could not tell those guys had even been inside my coach and they did major repair.

RE: Large rodent attack leaves me stranded.

I would immediately switch to Butterball turkey. Wild is just too damned expensive.

RE: Yikes! Fire !!

Glad you caught it when you did. I always keep mine off the ground.

RE: Don't be this person--PIC

A lot of the time, not always, the first guy in can set the whole parking lot into to a mess. It gets worse the farther down the line you go.

RE: Don't be this person--PIC

Those rest areas are for everyone that needs a long parking space. They were paid for by every taxpayer. Let's stop the nonsense about who does and does not have a right to park a long vehicle in the rest areas.

RE: Don't be this person--PIC

10-4 on passenger cars using Truck/RV parking. I have seen it many times. My observations have been they are mostly dog walkers. I have seen truckers use the curb space behind passenger car parking. Not a good idea.

RE: Don't be this person--PIC

KampingKris there is no logic. The mentality, well there is none. Some folks advance with civilization, others just mutate but remain mostly innate. You have not seen the end of them you will run into these Neanderthals for as long as you are on the highway.

RE: Don't be this person--PIC

That very thing happened to me just the other day. The initial individual must have parked just over the line, that forced the next 4 cars to do the same thing. Then I came along,I was making a quick in and out visit, so I parked accordingly, only my line was near a hand-capped site. Man when I came out of the store all the other cars had left, and there I sat about one tire width over the handicapped line. Some guy came up to me and just really exploded, he did not look handicapped in any way, but he came with in a cats whisker of getting his nose rearranged. I finally just backed out and left him venting his spline. The worst part was it was an extra wide handicapped spot and he had plenty of room. Some days your are the dog and some days you are the hydrant.

RE: Don't be this person--PIC

I have met some great truck drivers and I have come across some green stick no it all's that just need to mature. I see the same thing with fellow RVers, some seem to go out of their way to be obnoxious and others would do any thing for fellow RVer or a trucker. I try to remember the trucker is working, and I am on a pleasure cruise. That does not mean he has more driving rights; but I am in no big hurry and I probably am not tired from driving too many miles. Peace be with you.
