RE: Propane Safety

Why is there so much stupid in Flordia?

RE: Sewer hose connection question

Bike inter tube cut to length you want, wire the ends closed and filled with sand or gravel. I cut a section of old blue tarp, filled with sand, folded over the ends, grabbed the duct tape and put a few wraps on it. I guess it weighs 12-15 pounds.

RE: Need new cab over matress. Please help

Love our 8" cool foam mattress from them. IMO get the thickest one you can fit in the space. Try Mattressinsider.com. We purchased from them when we modified our queen to twins. Needed narrower twins than standard. They have custom sizes in foam mattresses.

RE: Battery Disconnect

Well, maybe that is why Ford says disconnect the negative cable. On my Focus I toyed with putting the disconnect on the positive side as it was easier to do. Decided to put on negative that way Ford couldn't say it wasn't done per their instructions. Some users say it makes no differance and I agree except as you have found out. Some say it is to be certain there is no stray voltage to the transmission causing it to kick into gear. My idea that the hood is really close to my switch so it is a CYA thing. It sounds like you had it done, ask them why they didn't follow simple instructions that are found in the manual, then ask them if they will buy you a new transmission if the worse happens due to their fault and it gets toasted. I bet they will give you dumb looks and say "that's the way we have always done it." I'll bet they screwed something up. And I would be looking at the lights too very closely if the did that wiring too.

Turn on headlights and your panel lights light up. Problem solved.

RE: East to West across Oregon

First off don't take OR 242. OK on a bike, car or small MH. It has a length limit of 35 (?) feet. Has cameras to spy on violators. Every now an then a Super Trucker tries it and gets stuck. Narrow, rough, windy and closed in winter. It is beautful drive and has an observation point at top up a short walk. Can see, on a clear day 7 (?) of the Cascade peaks. If you got a car or such consider making a day trip up there either from Sisters or the Blue River area. US 20 out of Ontatio is a rather dry and dusty route. US 26 is a lot more scenic. OR 7 out of Baker to US 26 is a nice drive. If you take 26 in Prineville pick up OR126 into Sisters then you can connect with 20. You can follow 20 all way to coast. The section over the Cascades is rather windy but totally doable.

RE: Roadside Lost & Found and/or Confessions

Bought an open box item from a large orange store. Got it home and found a Leatherman tool in it. It was engraved with a name and company so I called them. I was rudely told that no one by that name worked there and she did payroll for fifteen years and yada yada. Not the style that I particular like but works for as spare.

RE: TV's Control two TV's in living room

My solution is to unplug the one in the front overhead. Then I unplug the bedroom if the volume is loud enough to bug us. At least I am lucky that the outside one is a different brand so it doesn't turn on with the LG remote. It has only been turned on once just to see if it worked, still has the factory wrap on it. Hi: Need some help if anyone has encountered the problem of how to control 2 TV's in the RV Living Room. We have a new 2018 Allegro Red with two LG Televisions in the living room. When we try to control one tv both sometime react and sometime do not react the same. We turn one tv to a different channel the other tv may or may not change. Has anyone found an answer to this problem

RE: TV's Control two TV's in living room

Since most TV's made in the last five years or longer don't have manual controls tis a tad difficult to change manually. how 'bout turning one off and/or getting up and changing channels manually? how is it possible to watch two different programs at the same time in such a confined space?

RE: Class A, For Real this time

You are aware that the cabover bunk in the Fleetwood has a mattress that is about 2" thick supported by wood slats. My grandsons, 8 & 11 are starting to not want to sleep in it. I have been up there for a short time to repair things and I sure wouldn't want to sleep in it.

RE: Need some advice

Good luck. I was in the same situation but I was close enough for for early retirement. Wife told me to do it or else. Trust me, I was close to giving them a one fingered wave out the door. Not knowing all your details I would likely give them two weeks and likely they will counter with a you no longer work here. Problem solved. If they don't you will have a short timers attitude and you will feel better at the end of each day as your goal will be closer. PS. When I made the decision it took about 2 days for my BP to start dropping.

RE: Recent Reviews on rvparkreviews.com are hilarious

Well I am one of the "one and done" reviewers on that site. I gave an honest review of a site that was, I hope, well thought out. Then I get there we will post it after you review X number of parks then only if you bite the head off a chicken off at midnight during the full moon ****. They sent me a canned reply about their reason which never addressed my question. Why don't you tell you policy up front before I waste my time filling out your form? I find it rather humorous that just recently I happened to see link to my review from an ad on another site. I doubt that they are broke hearted that I never returned.

RE: Best route to Oregon Coast from I-5

OR 22 to OR 18 is the lowest pass at about 800 feet. Good road. If you choose to stay on OR 22 into Hebo it is quite twisty. OR 126 is a good road with the summit at 1000 fee, IIRC. Little bit curvy but not bad. OR 138 into Reedsport is a good road and lot people prefer it, myself I don't but nothing wrong with it. In reality it is about a toss up on what one you take. My only advise of what not to take is OR 36 from Juction City to Mapleton. Doable but it is a goat trail. Not a bad logging road though.

RE: Ford E450 Parking Brake Leak

RE: Ford E450 sway bar?,s

Easy is a relative term. If you are comfortable working with basic hand tools it isn't a problem. Go to sdtrucksprings.com look up your vehicle, scroll down toward the lower part of the page and you will find a .pdf on the install. The factory bars are removed and the new heavier built, thicker bars are installed. How difficult/easy is the install? Does anyone have a link for step by step instructions or a video?

RE: Ford E450 sway bar?,s

The sway bar replacement isn't difficult if you can get underneath. I did both of mine on an '07 in a easy day, with a l-o-n-g lunch. I ran mine up on some 2X6's to get a little more clearance for my belly. I was extremely pleased with the end result. When I got mine sdtrucksprings.com was the best buy. The local tire place did my front shocks with their house brand. Price was good and the install was like $15 each so it was worth it. I understand that the E-450 shocks are rather hard to do on one side but can't confirm that.
