RE: Are there any RV toilets with a P trap?

I was just wondering if anyone has tried THESE things. I gave them a shot this year for the first time and so far I am impressed. They claim you don't need RV TP but I haven't tested that just yet.

RE: No winter home for rodents

We also use Fresh Cab with a lot of success. I would recommend buying it at your local hardware store (over the RV dealer) or Amazon as you'll get it a lot cheaper.

RE: Campground Report: Nine Eagles State Park, Iowa

We were just over there too last weekend (on our way to Amana). We stayed at Lake Anita instead. I'll make a note to try that out next time we are in that direction. That shouldn't be too hard since we live on the Western side of the state. Iowa has some really nice parks.

RE: condensation on windows

We open the window, put the humidifier out in the camper or run the A/C for a bit when we get back. All work fine. It just depends on the circumstance.

RE: Ames Iowa camping spots?

Do they like ice cream? :) Hickory Park has their own ice cream inside too!

RE: Hail! Trailer is a write off

I was in the same shoes as you recently. I opted for a new trailer for three reasons. 1) I was already eyeballing another trailer that I wanted to get because it had a little more room and the floor plan was a little more towards my needs. 2) I didn't want the hassle of selling a salvaged trailer at any later time. 3) There was damage on the trailer that I would have to fix soon (like the A/C on top and the bathroom vent). It was beat up very well.

RE: Branson--2015--March-April get-togethers?

Log on to the Branson website and request a travel guide. That'll have everything in it. I really liked the pierced arrow and yakov myself. The Dixie Stampede wasn't too bad either. We normally camp at the Wilderness campground and take the shuttle to SDC but there are tons of nice places to camp in Branson.

X2 on Hickory Park. Don't leave town without stopping there. :)

RE: Looking for a Toy Hauler/Camper for my Harley

Hey glad to assist. The one thing I don't like about the 19RR is the door is in the rear which means you have to maneuver around your bike when it is loaded if you should stop for a night and don't want to unload, or want to use the restroom en route or grab a soda or something. That's why we upgraded. Otherwise, it's a great little trailer.

RE: Looking for a Toy Hauler/Camper for my Harley

I was in your position just a few years ago. I found an all aluminum trailer down in KC. At the time I had a 4.7L Tundra. The trailer was good in that it was low to the ground and very light but it was just a basic trailer and everything you wanted (like bathroom, beds, kitchen) was extra. By the time I got what I wanted, I was up into the 25K range. In the end, I ended up with a FR 19RR (15K range) which did the job very well and we travelled with that all over the Midwest until this spring with a freak hail storm did it in. Sadly, my Tundra didn't pull it well so I ended up with a brand new F150 EB which does the job very well. Since then I've upgraded to a 25RR which is the same but with a little more space. I still enjoy it but have not had the pleasure to travel much with it. Are you sure those numbers you posted are right? They seem a little on the light side to me. My Tundra was listed at 7100 but my F150 is at 1100 something (but I would never pull that much). If those numbers are right, I think you might want to think about a new TV. There are some nice half ton towable toy haulers out there. If not I might also mention that there are a few pop up toy haulers out there. I had a Scorpion that my Tundra pulled well. Sadly they don't make those anymore but there may be used ones or similar ones available.

RE: Do I Have a Furnace Problem?

Have you tried lighting a burner on the stove? If you haven't used the furnace in awhile, you would want to bleed the lines out by starting up the stove for awhile. Then go back to the furnace / fridge.

RE: I DON'T WANT THE FREEBIES!

I don't think the request is unreasonable. I made a similar request of my credit card company many moons ago. I called and told them to stop sending me blank checks in the mail. They checked the box and I have never received any since.

RE: Can we expect these shenanigans?

Can you say KOA.. We were charged a required, "resort fee," on top of the nightly rate... The resort fee included admission to the "bouncy room" and a pancake breakfast. We wanted neither and but they wouldn't let us opt. out. Jellystone Parks do this, too. If I had to pay the bouncy room fee then I'm using the bouncy room! It's been years since I've been on one of those.

RE: ford ecoboost

My EB had a spongy feel to it when I bought it. I took it down to the local suspension shop and added a leaf spring. It cost me about $300 and it made the world of difference.

RE: Dish DVR Questions

IIRC I have copied programs from my Dish DVR by hooking up a recorder, DVD or VHS, to the outputs on my TV. yep, takes a long time. bumpy X2 for me except with movies from HBO. It works fine but I think I'm going to get rid of the DISH this season and start streaming. That'll be the end of DVD's I guess.

RE: Please - recommend cg Omaha/Council Bluffs, Nebraska

Correct. No reservations. That's why I asked what day you were coming through. If during the week you'd have no issues getting in (especially with school started). If on Friday or Saturday you might have issues but you might not. I also heard that Wilson Island might be open now but I have not been able to confirm it yet. Anyway, sounds like you got it all figured out so happy camping and be sure to wave as you come through!

RE: Please - recommend cg Omaha/Council Bluffs, Nebraska

You might want to consider a reservation for Mahoney SP if it will be on a weekend. That place gets very busy in the summer. Also consider Arrowhead SP just north of CB at the Neola exit (just North of CB). It's just far enough from the hustle and bustle and very quiet.

RE: ford ecoboost

...thx everyone for all the info...my wife and I purchased our first tt two seasons ago...a forest river microlite 25 that is serving us well...tv is a tundra 4.7...this fall going to a vlite 30 and the eb w all the tow and payload add ons...one last newbie question. ..what is DW...Bo Ironic, that's exactly what my TV was before I upgraded to the F150 EB. I was shopping for a nice clean used F250 that wasn't at retail and was unable to find one. They were either beat to******or very clean and a few K off new. I loved my Tundra but it just couldn't handle my 19rr comfortably. It's finally paid off now and so I'm back to where I was before but with a nice truck that can handle pulling 8K with ease (and stop it too). I'm hoping to get 10 years out of it. Time will tell how the EB holds up after 5 or 6 years but I have high hopes.

RE: Am I missing something- Camping World Discount

I once reviewed the Good Sam club for the same purpose but after goofing with the numbers, and visiting our local Camping World, I really didn't see how it would benefit me and have instead opted for Walmart and Amazon for now. Perhaps if I was camping more often then once per month some of the discounts at RV parks might help but that's just not the case at this time. I instead splurged for an Amazon Prime Account and have so far been pretty happy with that. FWIW

RE: ford ecoboost

2013 Ecoboost XLT loaded pulling a Jayco Whitehawk 28DSBH. We traveled from Central MN to the Black Hills this June and LOVED the truck. We had plenty of power and when semi trucks tried to pass on hills they always dropped back and we held our speed. The torque is amazing. The only thing I wish ours had was folding mirrors. But I was too thrifty to go with the Lariat. Amazing truck for just over $32,000. Im in the middle of a weekend test drive of a 2012 EB max tow SCRW Cab. I will sign the papers on Monday if all goes well. Heading out to test tow my TT in a minute. Looks like your trailer is nearly identical in dry and tongue weight to mine that gives me hope. Im lucky to have a brother in law who owns a car lot so I can do this. I will report back when I finish. The road that my tt is stored on has a deep vally that drops to a river then climbs sharply back up that should be a nice test as I know how my avalanche performs there. Now unloaded this truck will put a smile on anyones face the acceleration from a dead stop is amazing. Going to be hard to keep the tread on rear tires! Not sure if it has changed since 2012 (which I have) but my book says not to tow for the first 1K miles. FWIW
