RE: Are tents next to RV at campgrounds okay?

Depends on the campground. Mostly it is OK. I can only recall maybe one time it was not. That was in a snooty campground anyway. My boys now prefer to tent camp close by.

RE: This style camper hatch may put you in trouble for rot:

I am sure there are thousands of doors this style. Nice documentation. RV manufacturer's are you seeing this? Do you care?

RE: Why is towing my little trailer so stressful?

Our old Oasis trailer was about the size you pull. It was single axle and the suspension was bouncy. Also single axle AND WEIGHT LOAD DISTRIBUTION WAS ALWAYS A CONCERN. wE DID USE wd HITCH AND YOU PROBLEY SHOULD AS WELL. dOES YOUR TRAILER SIT LEVEL WITH THE TRUCK? a PIC MIGHT HELP US DIAL IN THE TROUBLE.

RE: 12 Years ago I did... What do I do now? - Sewer

Yes, things sure have changed. I never put any chemicals down the drains or toilot. As previously mentioned it is like tossing money down the drain. No need and makes problems for the dumps. We had several close in Oregon due to high fermandahide levels due to just such chemicals. Use a pressure regulator at the faucet before the hose. I do not mess with the wand aproach. I have an internal sprinkler head that I hook up at the dump station. Works much better than the wand and easier on DW or myself. Welcome back and have fun

RE: Generator Yes, or No ?

Do you need one? Depends. Do you plan on camping where there is no hook ups for more than a day or two? If yes or maybe might as well get a Generator. We can camp three days on only our twin group 27 batteries. We then use a HONDA EU 1000 portable gen set to charge. If you have room go with a built in unit. May I also ad don't scrimp on quality. Get a quiet reliable unit such as Yamaha or Honda or Onan. Stay away from the cut rate units IMHO Best of luck

RE: What trailer can I tow behind a Honda Odyssey?

Our HTT listed below tips scale at 3,490 loaded and ready to camp. Added air bags in rear springs. Tows great for many years and miles. I do not reccomend exceeding your weight limit. You do have options. Figure 500 pounds for gear

RE: Housekeeping details

Welcome back. I have been RVing since before the wheel. LOL We have never used tank chemicals of any kind. Nor have we used special paper. No problems ever. We do have a sprinkler type flusher on both black and grey tanks. No special soap either. Now get out there and make some memories. Congrats

RE: First camping trip: Success!!

Sounds like you made some great trip memories. A small amount of greast on the contact points, or silicone, eliminates most of the WD noise asuming it is not over tightened. Take lots of pictures. They have a way of turning into gold with time.. Probley just dust on the heater. Is it better now? If not perhaps some compressed air shot through the intake. Best to ask your dealer

RE: Locked inside by entry assist handle

Someone could as easily slip a stick through our conventional handles thus locking us in. Guess you would just make a sandwich, plug in a movie and wait for a neighbor to walk past . Or go out the emergency exit

RE: one burner stove?

That is new to me as well. We do have one burner that puts out more BTU than the rest but all three are adjustable as they sould be

RE: are hybrid trailers cold in winter?

We camp ten months a year and do at times in the snow. Cokdest I recall might have been last year at 11 degrees and wind. Ran the electric heater non stop and dehumidifier as well. No one was cold. Yes bunk covers. No matress extras. Our bunk ends are pretty draft proof with bungees holding sides tight so no drafts. That's our experience after `10 years of hybrid

RE: Hybrid at or under 3500 lbs

We have same 3,500 capacity. Our HTT listed below loaded with twin batteries, food, cloths, basically ready to camp tipped the truck scale at 3,490. I know for sure we gained some weight over the years. Our Kia handles the load really well. Head winds slow us more than hills ever do and even that is minimal. Our gas mileage is cut in half whentowing. Hope this helps.

RE: Huge Thumbs-Up to Champion Generator Warranty Support!!

After camping a considerable distance from folks with a big champion all I can say is Wow! sure was loud. Are they getting quieter? Can they compete noise wise with the red and blue?

RE: How much will my stuff shift when pulling a TT?

Lots of variables here. Learn as you go. When DW is driving the trailer can look like a tossed salad on arrival.

RE: Can RV anti freeze be re-used?

Great idea until I thought about it. If you put the product in your lines to prevent water from freezing it will come out diluted. If you have no water in your lines why use it? I say why risk it.
