RE: What do you use for a BBQ?

I've had the charcoal and propane grills. I stepped up to the plate and got a Green Mountain Davy Crockett. It's not big, but it's not small either. It sure cooks good. https://c5.staticflickr.com/2/1510/25793177772_81c10ba56a_c.jpg This will be the first time it's going with us on a trip this coming long weekend to be a week. https://c1.staticflickr.com/8/7473/27125077816_d5d6ca95a0_c.jpg

RE: Looking for a campground between Yosemite and Eureka, CA

Gold Country up by Nevada City, Downieville and Sierra City are very interesting historic areas. Hwy 49 is curvy and beautiful. https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3756/14100080330_f58a56f43b_c.jpg

RE: Eternabond over uncured Dicor lap sealant

Just leave it and inspect next year. I agree. It will dry. It sounds like you have the eternabond doing most of the work anyway.

RE: Onan 6.5 generator surges , backfires, stalls

6.5NHEFA11579P Onan generator on our 2000 Damon Intruder , ford chassis. Generator surges, backfires, stalls . Replaced fuel filter , spark plugs , air filter , plug wires . Still the same Please help . Thanks Also when I hit the start button from dash or on generator there is a delay, like its laboring to turn over. Is it propane or gas? If gas and it will run. Try running some carburetor cleaner. Shoot some straight down the carb.

RE: What did you do to your Toy Hauler today???

I'm getting ready to have a week off from work. For the last 4 years and till I retire, I take the whole week off after Memorial Day. My wife and I are headed to NE Oregon and SE Washington to ride some scenic roads on the Victory. I loaded up the new Go Power 120W portable solar panel and the King Tailgater. Plus the Green Mountain Davy Crockett Grill. That and other stuff, didn't even put a dent in the basement storage. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7357/27158228275_6939140def_c.jpg

RE: Tailgater Satellite Dish

I purchased the King Tailgater at Cabela's on sale for $449. I had some gift cards for almost 2 years that helped with the payment. Tailgater

RE: Nitrogen /air in tires

I have my own nitrogen tank I got when my brother's motorcycle shop went out of business. Temperature has a lot to due with RV tires having issues. Nitrogen helps with that. In a pinch, use air.

RE: Best highway from I-5 to Sisters, Oregon?

Here is what Google maps says. from Olympia, WA to Sisters, OR 4 h 48 min 267 miles via I-5 S and OR-22 E/Santiam Hwy SE 4 h 14 min without traffic 5 h 10 min 271 miles via I-5 S and US-26 E 4 h 31 min without traffic The key here is "without traffic". I-5 = TRAFFIC. Traffic near Portland and traffic near Salem will slow things down. And also remember, hopefully you are not trying to do the 65 MPH that the figures are showing. I would do the highway 26 route. 26 is a much easier road to drive. I have lived in Oregon all my long life and drive / ride all over this state, plus others.

RE: Am I missing something?

I have been on rv.net since 03 and have read lots and enjoyed the forums for the most part. ;) I would post more pics but for some reason I can't post multiple pics or my pea brain missed something. I was reading a post the other day and there were like 10 pics there. Well then I am thinking, yea it's cool thing but I don't have the patience to post pics individually and waiting for them to load or I am doing something wrong. I have been using the rv.net directions to post pics. My question is am I doing it right? Is there an easier way to post multiple pics? So far I am a one or two pics person but would like to post more pics but it's gotta be easier. Cheers..:B I too have been here a long time. There is some little glitch with RVNet, but the same forum at Forum it will work like it should. Maybe someone at RVNET can fix the glitch, but for now I am posting from Woodalls.

RE: 5th Wheel Toy Hauler buying advice

We have a 2016 Grand Design 380TH. I put my Victory XCT in the garage 10Ft. It's pretty roomy for the 2 of us. We will full time in it in a few more years. Here is a few pics. https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5622/22892080371_d4e1116297_c.jpg width=640 https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5831/22892088921_136f171cda_c.jpg width=640 https://farm1.staticflickr.com/774/22815377249_6993f17a39_c.jpg width=640 We love the deck (ramp). The right place and the view it can't be beat. Moderator edit to re-size pictures to forum recommended limit of 640px maximum width.

RE: Headed out to Moab, UT

There are a lot of beautiful scenic roads in Utah. You could head towards Tropic on 24 and 12. https://farm1.staticflickr.com/385/18287809889_30a1b009df_c.jpg Then 89 and 14 to Cedar City.Then Panaco, NV to Tonapah to Lee Vining. https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8781/18415432126_51b3f27764_c.jpg Just remember; 50 looks completely different going the other way.

RE: What to do when the Water Heater goes out?????

I think theres a safety reset some where around the water heater, might check. and check lowes for a removal tool. I agree on the safety thermo or reset button on the board. The gas part of the water heater should still work once the WH is filled.

RE: Suggest a Utah itinerary!

With 2-3 weeks, you will have to pick and choose what you want to see. Here are some links to places in Utah that we liked: Utah 12-24 area: Ut-12 Scenic Byway Fishlake Scenic Byway Scenic Backways off UT-12 Burr Trail Cedar Breaks National Monument Escalante Petrified Forest State Park Kodachrome Basin State Park Anasazi State Park Calf Creek Falls Hells Backbone Capitol Reef National Park Bryce Canyon National Park Goblin Valley State Park Moab area: Kane Creek Road Potash Lower Colorado Byway Upper Colorado River UT-128 Scenic Byway Sago Canyon Dead Horse Point State Park Arches National Park Canyonlands National Park Needles District Newspaper Rock US-89 area: Zion National Park Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park Monument Valley, Bluff, Blanding Area: Monument Valley UT-261 the Moki Dugway Goosenecks State Park Hovenweep National Monument Natural Bridges National Monument Bluff Fort South Fork of Mule Canyon and House on Fire The Valley of The Gods Sand Island Petroglyphs Edge of the Cedars State Park Dinosaur Museum We also enjoyed Dinosaur National Monument and the Utah Field House State Park; however, Vernal is some distance from the other areas commonly combined in a loop through Utah. WOW Traveler. That's a lot of great links.

RE: Do I need solar or more batteries and a better charger?

I'm looking for the same simple power cures. I purchased a Go Power! GP-PSK-120 120W Portable Folding Solar Kit. I have been creating loads for the solar to recharge in the driveway, being I have to work. I ran 2 fantastic fans for 2 days and the power was down to 40% with cloudy skies on the second day. That afternoon, when I saw that the power was that low, I turned off the fans. The solar with cloudy skies brought the power up to 80% before dark. I just have the panel sitting flat on the roof. That's not bad for $600.00 including an extra extension cord. Tomorrow it will 100% the battery without the fans running with clouds.

Congratulations I'm jealous. We've got the rig, but we are not old enough yet.

RE: Splendid washer smell

White vinegar. It's basically beginning stages of mold. And soap scum. The mold grows on the soap scum.

RE: Splendid washer smell

After you get the washer cleaned out, only use 1/4 of the detergent that the directions on the container recommends.
