RE: Odor

Perplexing. Can you post a picture of the smell so we know what we are working with? LOL Just kidding. I say batteries. Second guess might be a small rodent died in the area? Please let us know.

RE: Permanent campsite in the woods

Think like a rodent. Look at all possible inlets and put aluminum sheeting over them. Maybe some rodent spray. I might consider a trail cam for two legged intruders.

RE: Smaller Trailer Suggestions

I am really glad you posted. We are saving up for similar purchase. Almost pulled the trigger on Coachman 17 BH but it had no oven and a wall mount AC. Was not aware of the models you are considering. You are wise to research. Let us know what you decide

RE: Water pressure regulator

One may cancel the other. You need to fix the leaks. This is the only real solution my friend. Stop spending your money to compensate for poor quality.

RE: Painting RV inside...

A friend did this to his TC. Very detailed prep. Still looked bad and he regretted it. Also hurt him on resale as folks figured he was covering damage. Sorry to discourage. Perhaps try one wall and see for yourself?

RE: carrying spare propane (20#) while traveling

I carry a five pounder in the bathroom for lantern & grill. I also have an adaptor so can use a one pound bottle on the trailer. I feel safe with it on board.

RE: First Time Travel Trailer Purchase

We have a 19 foot hybrid for out family of 6. It has served us pretty well over the last 14years with hundreds of trips. We are sving up for a Coachmen Clipper BH 17 priced at around 15K. Queen bed up front, bunks in rear. Plenty of storage. This, or similar, may be what you are looking for. For 2017 Coachman has opted for a wall mount AC and no oven. This has started us looking for another trailer similar to this. There are a few out there. Best of luck

RE: LOAD LEVELER U BOLTS

Would love to just clean up the threads. Problem is the ends are so close a die tool will not fit. Not too good with a file. I tried.

MAGELLAN ROADMATE ?

I have had this trusty unit several years. Last year it began shutting down for no aparent reason. It would start up again only to repeat inconvient shut down again. Maybe I need a new internal Battery? Maybe a new unit. My problem is I have so many favorite places saved. How can I retreive them and transport to a new unit if needed?

RE: Hybrid Versus Non Hybrid Travel Trailer Across North America

We have had our hybrid for 14 years and camp almost year round. We have always towed with mini van. Loaded weight was 3,490 with twin batteries, full water tank and fully loaded. Honestly I would ditch the hybrid in a minute if I could. Hands down it is the best space to weight ration out there. Down sides are outside noise, wet set up after camping. Has to dry. Some say security. I have never had an issue. If you have any questions feel free to send me a private message. We have literally camped hundreds of nights. Trailer has held up surprisingly well.

LOAD LEVELER U BOLTS

I was bored the other day and decided to repaint my 500 pound capacity load leveler bars. I decided to remove the U bolts and do a good job. When I went to reinstall the U bolts I realized the removal was a bad idea as the ends of the threads were trashed from scrapeing on speed bumps. Two hardware stores and Home Depot did not have U bolts thick enough to work. I looked on line and found a set for $23 plus S&H. Any suggestions on replacement? These are case hardened? Any thoughts? There are times I really am my worst enemy.

RE: IS QUALITY ASKING TOO MUCH?

Have we got to the point where it is all about profit and integrity is not part of the picture? It would appear that way. Yes, I can spray paint over the plastic to protect but really how much do we have to do to accomidate poor quality?

IS QUALITY ASKING TOO MUCH?

I am in process of replacing my third plastic shore power access port. The thin flimsy hinge pin breaks off. As I consider all the plastic vent caps I have replaced and other plastics now yellowed with age I sure wish the company making these would take some pride in the product. I know it is possible to make good quality long lasting plastic. My house gutters, kayak and canoe all plastic and holding up nicely. With the exception of Airstrem most RV manufacturers, high end or low, use this same cheap plastic junk. Perhaps there is a busness opportunity for someone interested in quality plastics? I know they sell more if they are cheap and fail. Still is there no room for integrity and pride of workmanship?

RE: CPAP Machines RV's

I bought a 1000 watt PSW inverter for a fishn buddy and wondered how long it would run his Cpap. Thanks for posting. This helps

RE: quick question

Get a few bids. Show the lowest bid to the best contractor and watch the price fall.

RE: Covered storage

We had Tri State Canopy put up a 21X25 metal frame metel roof canopy with no sides. I bought some rippled metal and sided it later. It really does make a huge difference. The front is open and paint gets oxidized but not the sides or back. I never got a permit for this. I think it is considered portable

RE: RV Financing / Zero Down Options?

Save up and pay cash. Is there a worse investment on the entire planet? Maybe a boat.

RE: Important Safety Question

As long as you keep all the tires touching ground you should be OK amego.
