RE: Pulling A Train

It's illegal in WA for recreational towing, unless you have an out-of-state licence plate and are a tourist. Triple commercial truck/trailer rigs are allowed, but only on freeways. Minor point. In the commercial vehicle world triples are understood to be three trailers. They are certainly not allowed anywhere in WA.

RE: Residential fridge

What did you decide to use for door lock? I have the same Samsung and Fleetwood door lock is made by Micky and Co. Using a Velcro strap last trip and seem to work OK so Micky's handy work is coming off today.

RE: Do the people that build them ever use them?

So this thread is going to be about "The design of this is really dumb, but it is my fault because in my twisted mind I thought all water tanks should vent/overflow in to my nightstand and I should know to look there? When you pull you car to the gas pump do you expect the back seat to fill with gas? Oh, stupid me I should have thought they terminated the fill pipe in the passenger compartment. Sheesh.

RE: Do the people that build them ever use them?

Well my complaint isn't the overflow tube size yet...gotta find where it vents before I join that club. 2016 Bounder Anniversary Edition. The thermostat is above the door in a fake cabinet. It is 6'7" from the floor, not the step, to center of it. Now I admit I am vertically challenged, but come on. To top it off it is LCD so it is nearly impossible to read. Then there is a battery monitor unit that is a few inches higher. Behind the bedroom TV there is a usable storage with a shelf, till in their infinite wisdom they put the TV hookup, booster, and some other stuff on the wall with half on the left side then the rest on the right side thus making the whole cabinet useless. The thermostat and the rest of the stuff could have been neatly put in one shelf saving the other for something useful. Some of the stupid stuff one sees confirms the fact that they really don't care.

RE: Where to buy batteries?

Trojan has a dealer locator on their website. Give it a try. Then call some places for price. My dealer dropped like $30 each for cash.

RE: Waldport, Or to Redmond, Or

Well, they don't call Hy 20 pass in the Cascades Deadman's Pass for no reason! Anyone know the status of ODOT's boondoggle on 20 near Eddyville? I think it's actually called Tombstone Pass. http://www.oregonlive.com/pacific-northwest-news/index.ssf/2012/03/oregon_department_of_transport.htmlThe Hwy 20 fiasco is far from fixed. The original construction company made a huge error, but it was thankfully discovered. There is some light on the far horizon. :o:o I actually do believe you are correct! When I typed that I knew it didn't sound correct. Thanks Through Lincoln City to Salem and Sisters will be much simpler and a stress free drive. Tombstone Pass out of Sweet Home would not be much fun and Hwy 20 to Corvallis is a bit narrow with lots of sharp corners. Hwy 34 is mostly good, but has a short section that would not be enjoyable west of Philomath.

RE: Transmission temperature gauge

Gender shouldn't have anything to do with a transmission temp gauge. :B Your dealer might install one but they will likely stall you or make it cost more than it is worth. Sometimes they get it their head that they can't to anything because it will void the warranty. I wouldn't let a RV place anywhere near the chassis, most are above their head just changing the air in the tires. Unless your are planning to really give your rig it a workout I wouldn't bother with it. Maybe increase the drain interval for the trans. Scangage might be an option.

RE: Waldport, Or to Redmond, Or

Well, they don't call Hy 20 pass in the Cascades Deadman's Pass for no reason! Both are doable and pretty. But 20 has more twisty stuff to it especially between the coast and Corvallis. If time allows and you don't mind the curves do it. I would do 18/22/20. 22 in Salem can be a little confusing so watch the signage. Anyone know the status of ODOT's boondoggle on 20 near Eddyville?

RE: Dometic Vacuflush Question

Thanks. Right after I posted this it started again. We increased the water level a bit and the hold down time a little and all seems back to normal. We/ thought we were doing right but some insight helped. Thanks

Samsung Door Locks

New Bounder with the Samsung refer. Sure lots of cold beer storage.:D I am guessing that Fleetwood designed the Micky Mouse door lock for it. If they are not in the exact position by .001 inch they are going to scratch the finish or the grandkids will destroy them. Plus they don't stay in position, the slightest touch and they are unlocked. Ideas? Seen some kid locks that look promising.

Dometic Vacuflush Question

Just got a new Bounder that has the Dometic VacuFlush we are on the shakedown cruse now. Last night after the flush as it is doing its thing the last thing was a knocking sound. Sounded just like someone knocking/slapping on the door. Did it about five times then no more. I was thinking maybe a blockage, the DW tends to be shy with the water and ran a few full bowels through. Cannot find anything in the manual. Ideas?

RE: Awning ties

When we had a manual awning we used a couple simple dog leash ground screws we had laying around: http://www.essentialhardware.com/media/catalog/product/cache/2/image/380x/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/8/0/806104.jpg I then used a rope, later a ratchet strap hooked over the roller at each end of the awning, coming down to the dog screw. Between the dog screw and the rope - or ratchet strap, I connected them together with a bungie cord for some "spring" action, so if the wind blew or rocked the trailer, there was still tension on the awning arm, but not much there was no give, potentially bending the awning arms. We did this for years, until our current trailer that has an electric awning, which behaves much different now. If you have these parts laying around, it's simple, effective, and works very well. You can try a different anchor in the ground, a tent stake, or something like that. We just happened to have 2 dog stake screws we weren't using and dedicated them for this purpose. I like your idea of the bungee cords.

RE: 30 Amp Elec plug/ is this straight forward fix?

If it is a molded type only thing is to cut it and buy a replacement plug available most any hardware store. I find it easiest to use an ax. White wire to silver lug. Hot, black wire to bronze. Green to ground

RE: Dome or Dish Receiver

OK. Thanks to all. My research also pointed to the Winegard Trav'ler so I think that is what I will get. Bill.Satelitte, no I wasn't talking about the crankup OTA. I knew my word choice wasn't good, guess I should have called it a parabolic antenna dish. lol

RE: Dome or Dish Receiver

Thanks so far. Been looking around. Next question, Wineguard or KingDome? I lean toward the Wineguard since they have been around since dirt was created but like the lower profile of the King. And we tend to go where angels fear to tread.

Dome or Dish Receiver

Just completing a purchase of a new unit and In negotiations I got a satellite tossed in. The question came up if we wanted a dome or a crank up dish. Salesman said he didn't really know but would go with the crank up. Since I never have had satellite can I still get OTA? I have no idea what kind of antenna is mounted, or if it is removed. I would assume that some where the satellite is joined to the coax that goes to the TV's. I really don't have a clue on the service of Dish or DirectTV. Full timing is still a few years away, didn't there used to be a provider that offered some RV plan? We use OTA at home and a Roku. FWIW the MH is a Bounder 34T Anniversary edition, had most of the bells and whistles, why it didn't have the satellite installed is beyond me. Thanks. Opinions and advise welcomed. Off to the Internet to see if I can find some info.

RE: Slide Toppers

Well I saw the unit in person that we are thinking about and it has the topper. Thanks all.

RE: 30 amp surge protector suggestions?

If my Lance trailer has a 30 amps cord for power, can I use a 50 amp surge protector without any problems or do I need to have 30/50 amp surge protector so I can use 30 or 50 amp, which ever is available at the particular park I am at???just get a 50 to 30 adapter and plug it in and go.

RE: Slide Toppers

If I understand what you are saying, the awning comes over the slide, or at least a part of it? So you're questioning if a slide topper would interfear with the awning? It probably would. But ... you do know if the slide is actually under the awning, you losses some of that outdoor living space under the awning when the slide is out. I personally would never want a camper designed like that.Yeah I agree but the problem lies with the DW. Just saying.

Slide Toppers

Been looking at some new bright shiny objects... Question on slide toppers. Looking at a model that has a front slide on right front and of course an awning. I am guessing that a topper cannot be on that slide because the attachment point may interfere with the awning. Or is something else?
