RE: Tragedy leads to no camping at Cottonwood, AZ Walmart

Can't imagine why the local vagrancy laws did not apply to this squatter, much sooner.

Can't do anything but get better now.

RE: Towing at night in hot weather

I have hooked up test gauges to my system to double check the on board gauges. I was really surprised by the difference in water temp and the oil pressure between the test gauges and the on board gauges. On board were showing normal range, test gauges showed substantial difference on the negative side.

RE: Red Squirrel or Chip Monk

I agree with Midnight Sadie, been there done that; there is a better way. The critter is just trying to live.

RE: Exterior paint schemes and interior design.

I am with you JB's Cabin. I just cannot see the goofy swirls, swoops and clashing color schemes they put on these RV's. I don't find the interiors to be bad, albeit I cannot see white and light tans in the world of outdoors. What's worse it does not take a long time for these graphics to deteriorate in the hot sun. Then you have one big expense on your hands to replace them or paint the whole rig. I saw a fiver coming down the high way yesterday that looked ridiculous,it looked like a duck had been walking all over it. Guy had a real nice truck though.

RE: Bedbugs!

From what I have read, there is only one sure fire way to get rid of them. "High heat". Most pesticides do not work. The local board of health should be able to give you some good information. This has been my personal nightmare on buying anything used.

RE: Tough job testing RV's

Unless it was an independent review company, I would put very little credence in what they had to say. I would like to see Consumer Reports do a once a year report on RV's but it is not going to happen, not enough people into the hobby. Some of those I have read in T/L and Motor home are ridiculous. It might be interesting to have a spot on the forums where only people that has owned at least 6 different rigs report their experiences and critique the various models they have owned.

RE: Electric Blankets pros and cons

I have used e-blankets for many years. Never had a problem of any kind. I trust a blanket a lot more than a propane furnace.9@@

RE: prime time mfg

Why would you pay a dealer for a PDI unless it was from a dealer you did not purchase the unit from. PDI should not be at the cost of the customer. Never paid for a PDI in over 40 years.

RE: Suggestions take truck for hook up repair battery connection

Man you are one lucky Dude. Seldom have I seen more responsible and helpful answers than you received on your problem. One or more of them is accurate.

RE: Sunny and Balmy!

Don't trust Mother Nature, she is fickle. Most of the time I have seen better March weather than April in Indiana.

RE: Oh No!?!,,?

Definely back flush before you try anything else. Best done at home or any where but the campsite.

RE: 5th or Class A ???? - Work and travel rig

The one equation I have not seen in the above very sensible advisories, is maintenance. Class A's require a lot of service. It is not easy to maintain a Class A, unless you have your own well equipped garage. Most dealers are not reliable, unless you bought it from them, they will put you at the rear of the line. Since they probably will not see you again, they are not going to give you first class service. I have owned them both 5ver and 7 motor homes. The 5ver will give you the biggest bang for your buck. You can get a p.u. truck serviced any where. You generally do not need a toad which you will have to buy insurance for and maintain.The motorhome is easier, I think, to set up in a camp or resort.Today's Class A in a rain storm you do not even need to get out of the vehicle to dock it. I liked when my wife would fix lunch for me while en route, and I never had to stop in the A. Be sure the whole family not just your wife agrees with you choice.

RE: Purchasing a MH using an escrow service & insurance ques

My advice would also be do not commit funds to purchase anything you have not seen. Then if you are still interested, set up an escrow account whereby the release of funds is dependent on your final acceptance. I would also lock in the price up front.

RE: So, just how "hazardous" can a tank full of poo be?

I have an acquaintance who will not let his wife use the loo in the motorhome because he does not want to empty it. They both use campground facilities. He has a 250K motor home. What a waste.

RE: I remember when----???? (camping version).

4x4 Dodger --- what a great post.

RE: I remember when----???? (camping version).

I am really glad there still some out there that remember camping and the great outdoors. I can't help wonder what the Newbies think of these recollections.

RE: I remember when----???? (camping version).

I remember camping as a communal water spigot with in a 1/4 mile, communal latrines. Coleman gas lanterns, fire rings made of stones, you swam in a creek or at the beach that was your shower. Rarely a trailer over 20 ft long,w/3 way lights. Most used tents or school buses. Seems we had more fun that way, than today trying to show off the latest and the greatest. Albeit it is more comfortable to day.

RE: Can I run a Carfax on a Class A MH

It is just another form of hype to be used by car lots. I ran one on my own car which had the entire passenger side sheet metal replaced. It showed nothing. The car had been repaired to like new, but still there should have been a record of the repair.

RE: Front View Camera-anyone else use one?

Thanks for the link to a very interesting and educational tutorial on front view cameras. Since I knew nothing about them except they sound like a great idea, this really helped educate me. Ref:link by rhagfo
