RE: Sequence to use to clean up "black water tank",please.

Hook up the hose Open black tank valve. Let most drain out. Close valve Turn on flusher Listen for tank to get half full or so Open valve again keeping flusher on flush for a few minutes turn off flusher let tank drain. Close black vanve Opengray water valve and do the same. I DO NOT see the need to put any chemicals in your tank. Bad for the envirnment. Bad for your wallet. Money down the drain IMHO No need for RV toilot paper either.

RE: Need Trailer-Warming Gift Ideas

Large piece of astro turf. Indoor/outdoor thermometer, outside lighting, camp chairs, the list is endless really.

RE: The difference between dry an loaded weight.

From dry to ready to camp we gained a tad less than 600 pounds. Full water tank, twin batteries, fire wood, cloth's food. I would guess we have gained weight over the past many years. I would guess the tongue weight would rise accordingly, but mayby not.

Every March I wax the hybrid. Two coats of carnuba. (Mothers) The HTT is stored under cover. The sides look better than new. The front is heavily oxidized. I have used rubbing compound. Lots of work with less than stellar results. Is there a new product I can use to deoxidize the frint? It gets sun. I have considered a floor shine product for shine but not sure of this

RE: When filling with water, most of it dumps out the side.

Due to poor design I have to feed my fresh water tank slowly or, like yours, fresh water is forced out around the hose. To add to this bad design my tank feeds from the side so you can never reach intended tank capacity. Soon as a left hand turn is made water comes out the fill inlet. I put a short piece of hose with no male end on my fill hose. This takes the water outlet into the tank so air can more easily escape. Helps but does not cure

RE: to cover or not

I would cover it. I believe most RV's leak and we only find it when damage is obvious.

RE: Depreciation

It appears many owners are upside down financially so are trying to get all they can. I am old school and would never think of financing an RV. Is there a worse investment on the planet? Anyway if you find a rig you like and it checks out shoot them a low ball price. Nothing lost. What price is asked is only asked. Let someone else pay initial depreciation. Shop wisely. The ball is in your court

RE: What do I need to add to truck for truck camper

Welcome to the forum! Congratulations on the camper. You will need a good tie down system and wiring for lights. Load the camper and see how it sits. You will probley be okay. If not many use air bags. Might want to measure your heigth and tape it to your dash for quick reference. Good to know. Check the mirrors

RE: Which would you install?

I am wondering what you use all this power for? We can dry camp for three full days osing a 1000 watt inverter for TV & DVd player. We do this off 2 group 27 deep cycle batteries from Costco. After 3 days we break out the Honda EU 1000 and charge them up.

RE: Thinking out Loud

Life is funny. I have observed older folks often have huge rigs for just the two of them. I still take numerous kiddo's camping in my little hybrid and dream of a fiver. LOL If I had the cash I would be there with you. Guess it is because I refuse to finance an RV

RE: SUV tent

We looked into them for our off road adventures. Seemed more hassle than a tent or hammock to us.

RE: Portable waste tank question

Bottom discharge is best. These tanks are extremely heavy. As a side note if you have kids that use excessive water have them dump the tanks. Really encourages limited water usage.

Thanks for the video direction. I had no idea how complicated this is. It would seem I really need to know the weight of this camper. Have not yet found it on line. It is a bare bones Six Pac with ice box. I think it is under 1,000.
Oasisbob 01/18/18 05:15pm Tow Vehicles

My son has a 02 Ford Ranger 4X4 with large T-35's. He had to install two inch lug extenders to accomidate those tires. We bought a 75 SIX PAC cab over camper. My question is this. Do the lug nut extenders lessen the load capacity? Will they break or come loose or?

RE: Not unhooking for a night

If you are level no worries.

RE: propane grill safe distance?

I think with a large heat guard you could get within a foot. I have a stove mounted only a few inch's with a heat guard. Consider flare ups.

RE: Travel Trailer with the family cat?

Consider the cat getting outside. Could you catch it? On one camping trip this year there were two cats left behind and one was sleeping in our fire pit to stay warm but would not allow us to capture it to take home. A sad story.

RE: Green Gasoline

The XR 80 is a four stroke motor. I have no idea why your fuel turned green. You, however, have motivated me to add STA BIL Marine fuel stabalizers to all my motors. Much easier than flushing, cleaning and or replaceing fuel components. Thanks for the motivation.

RE: new Honda 2000 on internet for $670

I believe that is below cost? Honda makes different models. Is this an EU? Which is the quiet model. I would be afraid to purchase
