RE: How old is too old?

Age is not a factor. All depends on condition. Spend a little cash and have it gone through by a third party truested service center prior to sale. Money well spent in my opinion.

RE: A lesson for RV shoppers

Prior to signing on my current rig I was told their tech guy thoroughally checked it all over. I said great before we sign I will come in to look it over. Please have everything running upon my arrival.Long story short I found ruptured water lines & hot water tank, bad batteries, and the service tech took the outside stove which he "found" . Have the entire rig gone over by a third party prior to signing. All the problems were fixed prior to my signing.

RE: Camping with the dogs

I know California is famous for laws that do not always make sense. I would not bring my dog if I could'nt hike, go to the beach with her. Locking them in the RV will they bark or whine? To answer your question lock up the generator if weather dictates the AC. It's all you can do. My vote would be the fan if possible. No one likes to listen to a generator at camp. Is CA really that restrictive?

RE: When to throw in the towel on an older motorhome

I would keep it. Mileage is low. You know what you have. Considering the cost of a new rig I vote to keep it. Many times I have been discouraged from buying a new rig due to all the warranty problems people seem to have with new units. Some buy a new rig and it sits for several weeks awaiting service. No thanks. Just my take on this. Go camping and forget about it. Take care as things need it. You are money ahead my friend

RE: Small Generator choice for 5W

I can dry camp three days using twin group 27. I use a HONDA EU 1000 to charge my batteries and run the trailer while doing so. Under 30 pounds, quiet and extremely reliable. Obviously I cannot run the AC or microwave

RE: Choosing a camping experience

I camp in both and do not see the form of shelter to be the issue. My experience tells me the real issue is how we treat one another. Are qw quiet, clean & respectful towards those around us? Yes, most of the time. When not it is usually due to alcohol. It puzzles me why the party types even go camping. Rules need to be enforced for the sake of all

RE: Campground Theft - Chapter 2

It does happen though rare. Total jerk . I have found folks like that have more problems than one could ever want to know. Even back packing I have heard of this. Mostly folks are good

RE: Looking for first hybrid - Aluminum side

I prefer aluminum old school siding as well. Easier to repair, looks better too. We have had our current hybrid for 14 years and the flat siding has not given us any issues. We store under cover and wax every spring. Really I think the flat stuff is for ease of manufacturering more than for the consumer. However, it has served us well.

RE: Looking for first hybrid - Aluminum side

Unless you are very RV savvy I strongly suggest having a private RV tech check over the entire unit prior to purchase.Check for yourself that everything works and nothing leaks. Make a list. Check everywhere for water damage and or rot. Read archives here about brand quality. Know our value prior to looking at a specific unit. This will all be time and money well spent. Best of luck.

RE: New fifth wheel didn't come home ??????

Wise to check it before you take delivery. The red flag for me is that it made it from the factory, through dealer per delivery they should have done all the way to the customer who had to find this. Come on RV industry how about slowing down on the asembly line and giving quality incentives to the workers? Os is it really cheaper to push units out and pay to fix them later? Terrible quality IMHO

RE: How to whiten the roof without harming wax job?

Keep the bleach off the roof. It will dry out the rubber before it's time. Just use a soft brush & mild soap that will not hurt the roof or your wax job. I get the logic. Any dirt on the roof goes down the side.

RE: question about black tank rinse

You are wise to not want to overfill the tank. Figure a flow rate of no more than ten gallons per minute from the faucet. Probley less. So I would say no more than 2-3 minutes. I listen as I do other things. I can tell when the sprinkler head goes under. I once forgot about it asnd water came from toilot seal and out vent on roof. Never again will I make that mistake. I hope.

I am at a stage in my vision loss where I need to admit I can no longer see well enough to do what I know how to do. I cannot see or feel well enough to use the adjuster hole on the backing plate so I remove the wheel each adjustment and reinstall. Well I just pulled the inner bearing past the seal and can not get it back. Time to admit defeat and turn it over to a professional. Funny thing is I cannot get the wheel back on to take it anywhere. Do I need to remove the seal, install the bearing and install new seal or is there another way? I am my own worst enemy at times. LOL
Oasisbob 03/09/17 11:22am Tech Issues

This is my first time doing this and I was confused on the terminology used regarding rotation of adjuster. I have learned it is super hard for me to rotate the adjuster through the little hole. I am legally blind. I did learn the brake adjuster tool did not work as well as a small screw driver. Hard to feel the adjuster click. Bearings, magnets and shoes look alright. Wear indicators still present on magnets. Took me five hours to do the first wheel. Cold here. Thanks much to all who helped me on this. My goal is to finish this job today.
Oasisbob 03/09/17 08:50am Tech Issues

I have watched several how to bideo's on electric trailer brake adjustment. Can someone explain clearly which direction to turn the brake adjuster using the access hole on the backing plate ? I have a brake adjusting tool. Confused on up or down to tighten, or expand the brake shoes. It seems nearly impossible to tell what I am doing

RE: The saga of my junk rig.....I need suggestions....

Okay people what can we learn from this poor guy? This is a prime example of why one should never finance an RV. He is upside down with no way out. Also supports what I am always saying about the RV industry and lack of quality. Quality varies considerably throughout. Is there a user forum somewhere for this brand that might be helpful for this guy? I suggest fixing what you can and just using it til it rots.

RE: Oregon SP getting busier

We have noticed it is harder go get reservationsWe have also noticed many spots that viewed as full on the reservation site were empty. Hard to understand as OSP requires all payment at time of reservations to stop people from unfairly reserving for more time than they need so as to get a spot.

RE: replace carpet on ceilings, due to rain damage

Probley damage ceiling panels if you attempted to pull it off. Especially if there is water damage. Carpeted ceilings are rare for this reason among others. Can you try cleaning with carpet cleaner?

RE: seven pin plug

If not I suggest a 4-7 adaptor. I use one on my boat trailer.
