RE: No hurricanes this year !

Must say that is a big relief. Thanks for the help. How about flooding? Our FL cottage is in a flood zone. Could you do something about that? (By the way, we had a 2.5 earthquake here in NC last week, you can run but you can't hide.) lizzie No floods either ! that is why the insurance policy cost so much On the earth quake: How come we didn't feel the earth shake over here by Roan Mountain?

No hurricanes this year !

For those of you that leave your RV's in Florida, you don't have to worry about any hurricanes next fall. Yesterday we guaranteed that there won't be any when we purchased an insurance policy with Progressive! Jack L

Moving a trailer with the slides out ?

We just bought a new large travel trailer, and it is our first one with slides. Once it is set up with the slides out and I want to move it five or ten feet, can I jockey it around with the slides out? I am not talking about taking it off the camp site; just moving it a little. Jack L

RE: Draining fresh water tank

Sounds weird to me. I have a 2006 travel trailer with a 55 gallon fresh water tank. It has a gate valve and will empty in a few minutes. Are you sure you didn't just open the low point drain? jack L

Weight distribution bars question

I normally tow a 5000 pound 25 foot travel trailer with my 2014 Dodge Ram 1500. I just bought a new 38 foot 8,300 pound trailer that I will be putting on a permanent site. Right now it is being stored by the dealer who is only a few miles from where our permanent site is. My original thought was to have the dealer provide some one to tow it to our site, and he said it would probably cost a few hundred dollars. Now I am thinking that since it is perfectly flat roads and only a few miles that I should tow it myself to save the towing cost. Right now with my 5000 pound trailer I set my weight distribution bars at five links of the chain. My question is: should I go more links, less links or the same with the heavier trailer ? Or do I just do it by guess work and stand back and see if everything looks level? Needless to say, I will never tow this much trailer again after this one time! Jack L

RE: Knee Issues

Replacement ! I am an ex long distance runner who suffered with a bad knee for twenty years. It finally got so bad, that I didn't want to walk any more, and three years ago had it replaced. My goal was to be in a canoe a month after the operation, but I did a lot better, and was in my kayak a week after it. I was amazed had how quick the recovery was, and should have done it years ago. I now have no problem with stairs, and can hike mountains again, and it is just like I never had a knee problem With that said; when I was in rehab, I noticed that all the people that had problems recouperating were the over weight ones Jack L

RE: Small; vacuum cleaner ?

Thanks for all the suggestions. We'll look into a few of them Jack L

Small; vacuum cleaner ?

I'm looking for the smallest, but most powerful 120 volt vacuum cleaner that I can get to keep in our trailer. What have you got and would you replace it with the same ? I am not interested in a 12 volt one Jack L

RE: Hurricane insurance question

I am in the same situation as the OP, and am curious as to what an approximate price would be before I contact our insurance agent. Jack L

RE: Leave water on ?

At a full hook up: I never use the on board water tank. I just use the city water hook up with the valve turned on. If I were to leave the trailer overnight, I would shut the valve off. I leave the black water tank valve closed and the gray open, but the day before departure I close the gray one, so that when I finish dumping the black at the dump station, I open the gray and that flushes my sewer hose Jack L

RE: Home plumbing question

To those that answered above: I described the fitting I am looking for: 3/4" female threads on one side and the other side to accept 1/2 ' push in Pex tubing. I couldn't find it on line for either Home Depot or Lowes and I am an hour away from any of the stores. I was hoping a plumber or some who knows or has used such a fitting would chime in. The fitting that was there was a PCV one 3/4" female threaded reduced to 1/2" glued and it froze and broke, so I don't want to replace it with the same I am familiar with and have used most of the fittings that go with PEX, but never this one. I am not looking for suggestions. Just the fitting Jack L

RE: Home plumbing question

Home plumbing question

Does PEX or any one else make a fitting for connecting 1/2" PEX to a shower supply. The shower connection would have to be 3/4" female threads. In other words I am looking for one fitting that would be 3/4" female threads, and the other end 1/2 " PEX. I am looking for one that doesn't need the special crimp ring, (just push the 1/2" pipe in) Jack L

RE: Looking for some tent ideas

I'll go along with 2lazy4U and NYCgrrl on the Papa Que screen room; We're on our second. The first lasted over six years before failing in winds approaching 50 mph on the NC Outer Banks (totally my fault). We're planning a trip to Horse Cove CG in Nantahala National Forest in April; If you'd like to see it let me know and I'll get in touch when our plans firm up. Thanks, We will be in Asheville in the end of April doing a fifty mile race on the French Broad River in our canoe. If your trip is around then let me know, and perhaps we can take a peek at it Jack L

Looking for some tent ideas

My wife and I are just starting to look for a tent and a screen house. For the tent we want a good size one that we can stand up in. It also should have a large enough foot print to put in a blow up mattress, two small fold up chairs and a small fold up table. It absolutely must have no-seeum screening. We will also be looking for a screen house dining enclosure that has vertical sides, (not slanted). That also has to have no-seeum netting, and we want one that has canvas sides that can be rolled up or down over the netting. I would appreciate any makes and, or models that any one has that they like or ones to keep away from. Jack L
