RE: Chinese to buy Travel Trailer company

I have commented in the past on how the Chinese or Japanese interests could change the industry. Quite possibly for the better. Atleast for the consumer. Quality could well go up. Could it get any worse? As always IMHO

RE: When do you inspect a used unit?

Prior to money hanging hands. Prior to signing of anything. Take it to a non biast qualified reputable service center for a thorough evaluation. An honest seller will be fine with this and it may benefit him as well. When I bought my HTT ten years ago the seller asured me everything had been checked out by his service guy. I said I would be in for a walk through and have everything hooked up and working. I found broken water lines, blown out water heater, bad batteries. All this seller fixed to make the sale. Do you think he would care after the sale? It's a buyers market

RE: Launching a boat with a class c

My friend and I have taken my boat with his class C and done several launchs. When the cack up camera died we went to walkie talkies with me on the dock giving simple precise directions when needed. Practice in a nearby parking lot. Set the parking brake if driver gets out and make sure it sticks.

RE: Gummed Up Honda EU 2000 Gen

Your post surprised me. I have had my trusty Honda for many years and have yet to have anytrouble. I do use STA-BIL fuel stabalizer. Wonder if that made the difference. Sounds like your pilot jet is clogged or gummed.

RE: Elec heaters

We have a really god oil filled radiator type heater with three heat settings and a built in timer. Have used it for years on low over winter months in adition to winterizing. Why? Because cleaning up exploded pop or food cans or unloading all this is not fun. Cord does get slightly warm. Always been ok

RE: Made A Mistake

I agree RUN LIKE THE WIND!! away. You know what you have. Why buy into problems. Never never never go onto a sales lot. That is where the trouble starts. LOL

RE: Aluminum vs Wood construction

I vote aluminum because leaks can do alot of damage before they are detected.

Will soon need a new battery for our Kia and was curious if there is a down side to using a Deep Cycle RV batteryas a starting battery? My wife likes to sit in the car and play on her electronics thus draining the battery. Had the battery load tested and was OK. Could be a power draw, maybe brake c ontroller. Maybe my wife on her tablet Any thoughts?

RE: Condensation Problem on front window.

We run an electric water collecting dehumidifier in the HTT during winter outings. Leaving windows cracked or vents seemed silly. Now we dial in the humidity we want. We have been known to put the unit in the shower and dry cloths by hangin them in the bathroom. I think these should be standard equipment in all RV's.We have collected three gallons of water from the air in less than 24 hours

RE: Removing dealer decals

Great post and solutions. It is amusing to me that so many RV manufacturers plaster their name with such large graphics. That can work for or against them but it is annoying.

RE: Turn for the worse

Been there and done that as they say. Very sorry for your loss. Cuts deep. After about a year we got another dog and she is great. So give it time and recall the good. Best wish's

RE: Construction methods?

Lots of opinions . My thoughts are to buy aluminum framing if you can afford it. I am prttial to the aluminum old school siding for ease of repair. I have mixed feelings on the rubber roof. Make sure the roof is crowned. Best of luck

RE: towing a small trailer

Well as previously mentioned not legal in many states. Also consider you won't be able to see it and how will you back up? Maybe a custom bumper extension would work better?

RE: First time buyer

yes, the mileage is high. But the price is low. I believe for a first time buyer you should take whatever you are considering to a qualified well known RV service department for a thorough inspection prior to sale. Motivation to fix anything drops like a rock after money changes hands. If the seller is honest he should have no problem with this. There could be problems the seller honestly did not know about. Best of luck. Petience is a virtue in the buying process though hard.

RE: 3 1/2 season Travel Trailer

I recently saw a Jayco factory tour video on YouTube showing workers on the line asembling. My perspective was a bunch of guys running around building with speed as the main priority. No attention to detail or quality. It kinda shocked me. Wish I could link you but not that smart
