RE: Best cell service providers, (areas covered)

We had AT&T for several years but switched to Verizon because we had friends using Verizon that could get a good signal where we had nothing. Been very happy with Verizon for over two years including cross country trips. Price about the same as AT&T.

RE: What Do You do?

I usually carry about 1/2 tank of fresh water (45 gal.). I rarely vary from my planned route. Stop to sleep a few hours and then continue. Not unusual to drive 1000 miles a day. My wife does not help with driving.

RE: TPMS Repeater --TST 507--Will I need one?

I had to add the repeater for my TST system. My TT is 37 ft. and I mounted the receiver under my radio in the truck. I tried one trip and found it kept losing the signal from any or all of the tires. It was not consistent. I added the booster in my front closet and have never lost the signal since adding it.

RE: cable driven Slide out Gearbox

If it goes out but not in the gearbox is NOT the issue. Switch, Controller, Broken cables.. But the same gear box runs it out as in if the gearbox was broken it would not move period, This is the correct answer. It is not the gearbox if it will move either direction. It is also not the motor itself. If all 4 cables on the inside and outside of slide are not broken or missing then it is most likely your switch or possibly a wire disconnected at the motor. All of these items are easy to check.

RE: Cool Mods - Thread restored 10/18/2012

Nothing is free in this world. What about Facebook, Youtube and Google to name a few? And there are numerous RV forums that host your photos permanently for free. We won a "free" membership to a CG at an RV show a few years ago! :M For Facebook, Youtube, and Google YOU are the product, they sell your information to advertisers. Personally I don't use Facebook and block their all-invasive thumbs up buttons that are really a way to track you across almost every part of the internet. For Google/Youtube I pay them $10/month to not be advertised to on Youtube and Google Play Music. Well, they sure ain't gonna get any useful information out of me and can have whatever they want, lol! I ignore ads, I hate ads. I have gotten to an age where I try and buy as little goods and services as possible and anything I specifically want or need isn't going to in an ad. We prerecord all of our TV shows at home and fast forward through all the ads. Oh geez, I just noticed a Good Sam ad at the bottom of this page. Wouldn't have even noticed except for the content of this post... :R Same here. Sorry, I forgot what forum topic I was in.

RE: Need Overnight stop I77 Southbound south of Charlotte

I think the OP is just looking for a place to sleep for 6 hours, not really a campground. We have stayed at Cracker Barrel restaurants before. There is one close to the NC/SC state line. There is also a Walmart in Rock Hill, SC (just south of Charlotte). You could probably find a spot there that you could extend your slideout. If you want a campground there are several very close to the NC/SC state line including a KOA, Carowinds campground and as someone else mentioned Ebeneezer Park outside of Rock Hill.

RE: New Mexico Rt 60

I have lived in New Mexico the better part of my life and I have never been to Pie Town. It's been on my bucket list so maybe it's time.

RE: Sulfur smell from water heater

He needs to do a vinegar wash. Tell him to look in his manual for the exact procedure. Only need to do it one time and good for life. I'm an engineer and don't really understand it but I followed the directions and no more smell in 4 years.

RE: Higher end brands?

I'd stick with the Open Range. We love ours. Very few problems (none that I couldn't fix myself) and the floorplans are the best in my opinion. I also moved up from a Forest River Rockwood Roo hybrid.

RE: Battery Theft...

Don't have one....but here is one solution. Hope this helps or at least is a start. Battery Lock....HERE I have one myself. good people to deal with. bumpy I had a battery stolen while parked in our driveway. I bought two of these and no problems since installing them. I got two because since I had to go get a new battery any way I upgraded to two batteries. It's been several years now with no more theft.

RE: Open Range Ultra Lite travel trailer

There were quite a few OR Lights at the Texas owner's rally in April but I'm not sure if any were Ultra Lights. I would check on the OR owner's forum. We have a 2013 OR TT but it is not a light. We love it and have had very few problems. Had the propane regulator replaced under warranty. That was the only warranty issue. A couple more small items that I fixed myself rather than take it to the dealer. I do have to replace the skylight (ordered on Amazon) soon as it has some small cracks. It's been back and forth across the country two times plus a lot of shorter trips. One other thing. I replaced the junk Chinese tires that came on it with Maxxis tires and no problems at all. I would definitely buy another OR trailer if I didn't plan to use this one till I can't travel any longer (a long time I hope).

RE: Albuquerque

Based on the OP's requirements, the KOA is the only option. If you are willing to take the rail runner instead of a bus, the other options may be better. While the KOA is pretty nice it is in a fairly high crime area of the city.

RE: Route 66

I agree with NMDriver. There are some old Route 66 cafes and even a couple motels in Albuquerque but I would not try to pull my TT on the busiest street in Albuquerque. A large section of Central (Route 66) is torn up in a road project for the next several months as well.

RE: Open Range Ultra Lite - Jay Flight - WhiteHawk Quality

We have an Open Range but not the ultra light model. We have been very happy with the quality. There are a lot of Open Range Light owners out there. We just got home from the Texas rally and probably more Light models than any other. Try the Open Range Owners Forum for a better response.

RE: Question about TPMS and valve stems

You need metal stems. I wonder why Jeep has had problems with them. Do they have special wheels that nobody else uses? I have TST TPMS on my TT and Dodge Ram. No problems with any of them but I did put metal valve stems on all wheels.

Tell him that a fair trade for using your site is you getting the use of his boat.

RE: 2006 Dodge Diesel Engine Temp ??????

That's about what my 2006 Ram runs too. I am pulling a heavier trailer but it is about the same now as when I was pulling a hybrid. The main thing that changed going to a heavier trailer was the mileage.

RE: Moving from Hybrid to TT

I did the same move a few years ago. The only thing I really had to get was new sheets for the bed. Oh, I also needed a new truck. :B

RE: Cable slides

We have an Open Range with three slides. No problems at all and they are easy to work on if needed. I think there was a bad batch of motor/gearboxes that caused some early problems but they have apparently been fixed.

RE: Albuquerque Hot Air Ballon Festival?

I'm not sure what going with a tour group gets you. Probably a lot cheaper to reserve on your own. I've never camped there since I live in Albuquerque.
