RE: 1000 watt Honda gen

Be sure it is an EU model. That is the quiet one. I gave $300 for my used unit. Old but runs great. I add fuel stabalizer always.

Wish I had one. They were well made units designed and built with pride. Look forward to more pics. Thanks

RE: Live with it or pull new speaker wire.

Another example of bad quality . Can you have it fixed under warranty? I doubt you could pull it through. If you try securely fasten new to old and try. If it hangs up bull it back through. What a sad deal.

RE: Detailers>>orbital vs rotary

I use orbital and change the pad every few minutes. Though my favorite is by hand for sure.

RE: RV Barns

Nice set up. I have similar though double wide on asphalt. To those considering this may I suggest going atleast a few feet longer than your rig? When the wind blows rain or snow will easily blow in on the ends. And as previous anchor that puppy down. That is alot of sail.

RE: Things learned on first cross country trip

You can't roller skate in a buffalo herd. Positive attitude and perspective are your most valuable tools

RE: Help Me Find GOOD Fresh Water Hoses

I keep my hose on a reel originally used for large quanity of coax cable. I roll out what I need and leave the rest on the roll. I also drain the water and hook the ends together to keep clean and area dry. Worked for many years

RE: Fresh Water Hose

I know they look really smart. Reviews I have read say NOT. Do you have a WAL MART in your area? I get my generic RV stuff there. Nothing against CQW just kinda pricey IMHO

RE: '94 TT Complete gut - Oh my, what did I get into...

Very discouraging. You may be able to fix the damage but can you find the cause? Fix the leak first thing. Pressure test before you do any repairs. Time is money on the asembly line. Pride in workmanship s non existant

RE: mildew on awning

I agree with the post about damaging the fabric. We often put ours away wet as there is no room to dry it at home under the cover. I pressure wash with car cleaner. Not sure that is the best aproach

RE: Recommended 5th Wheel to live in full time in Alaska

Storm windows for sure. Heated tanks, lots of auxillury propane. Generator back up. You can do it!

RE: Cutting Dow an LED light strip

My Amazon strip lite has the cut lines. The light has worked great for two years however it is touchy about applied prressure when mounting. Did not like pressure applied to string. Would cut off power at pressure point then came back on when pressure was removed.

RE: Honda 2000

Very probable. How many amps does the AC unit draw? Check the info tag. Any other power draws?

RE: Winterizing errors and such

Congrats and welcome back. I am most likely to forget to pour anti freeze down the drains including shower. I have low point drains by my door and open all valves including water heater blowing compressed air through the system closing valves top to bottom location one at a time after all water is blown out. It's easier than it use to be. Charge battery and disconnect as well.

RE: Building a parking for the trailer and cover suggestions

Lots of opinions here. We camp most of the year. Our best solution was a 18X28 metal canopy from Tri State for an installed price of 1,550. I went with black top as it is not permanant or taxable and works well for the uphill driveway. Lots of opinions here as we all live in different weather climates. Either way covering is the way to go. Best of luck

RE: Unleashed dogs in campgrounds: A solution

I have had my lausa severely attacked by an off leash pit in front of my kids. Dog owners never apologized. They were evicted within the hour. I also have a black lab who would'nt hurt a fly and is extremely loyal staying with us always. I leash the lab in camp just to make everyone feel better. When out hiking the leash comes off. Never had a problem. Should I leash my dog there too? I have mixed thoughts on this.

RE: 40 ft. 5th wheel

Should be able to get into most, if not all, the spaces you were in before. We camp with a family who has a 40. Many USFS camps have a 20 foot max atleast in Oregon. But you can't go there now so no loss. Best of luck

RE: Winter solar battery charging when you can't add water?

I would take the batteries home and care for them. Mainly because your solar will probley be covered in snow often. Let's see what others say?

RE: Angle of departure question....

Have a spotter on the first go. I suspect you will NOT clear as you have a longer hand over. Hod did you come up with the 1 degree figure?

RE: Aluminum vs Fiberglass

Given the choice I would choose aluminum every time. It is easier to repair and hides imperfvections better than flat pre fab sandwich board which, IMHO , is for a faster prduction time and little else. When the RV industry comes up with something new it is usually for their benefit. Not the consumer. I paste wax my HTT once a year and have found Mcguire's carnuba wax to be the best. My rig is 13 years old and shines better than new. Sadly I did not have a siding choice and it has sandwich board which has held up pretty well, though it is very boring in appearance. Best of luck
