RE: Sam's Club closes hundreds of stores nationwide

Interesting that Walmart was out tooting their horn that they were going to raise starting wages to a whooping $11/hr. They didn't toot so much about closing their stores.

RE: Route to Jacksonhole Wy

As a footnote to my post don't be shy about following US 93 into the Twin Falls area and north to US 26. You may find Shoshone Falls and Craters of the Moon interesting.

RE: Route to Jacksonhole Wy

Some maps will show taking US 26 out of Idaho Falls then taking ID 31, 33 and WY 22 in to Jackson. DON'T! If you don't like mountains, coming off of Teton Pass will require CPR before you get to Wilson. 8-10% grade for close to nine miles. Stay on US 26 into Alpine, WY then take US 89 into Jackson. Been several years since I have been on 89 so it may have changed some but watch for fallen rock. It also borders the Snake River and you may find the road rather narrow, depending on your ability,

RE: Marcus and pot

Well with the Keebler Elf coming out and saying he is on the warpath of no pot, who knows what will happen.

RE: Smallest Gasser with w/d hookups.

My 2016 Bounder 34T at 35' 4" has a stackable unit. Model has been discontinued but I'm sure others have the option for one. Understand why she would be reluctant to give them up.

RE: Buying RV range online.

I had a little trouble with them too. I was led to believe that the part was in stock but it wasn't. Said the manufacture was back ordered and would be 2-3 weeks before it shipped. Canceled order but they did credit my credit card promptly. Ordered from a different distributor and they too said that it would have a two week delay. Got the item in two different shipments from two different warehouses in about five days. Price was better too. I use them to price compare but find that they are usually in the high end.

RE: Generator fumes inside

When I had a "C" the generator was located in the left front behind the driver also. Unfortunately it also had a slide there too that wasn't sealing well. With the exhaust under the slide it was a problem unless there was enough breeze to clear the fumes or if someone parked next to me and the breeze was blowing the wrong way. Set the O2 detector off a few time. Was going to make a Venturi but never got to it.

RE: High Pressure salesmen!

I guess I've been lucky with dealers! My three MH's were pretty much hassle free when buying. My first one was priced right and worked for us. Talked $$ for a few minuites and bought it. The second one were we debating on two different ones at a dealer then saw an ad at a second dealer. It was way underpriced decided to go look. Grabbed a salesman and said I wanted to look at this one. As we were walking to the MH he said that they had mis-advertised the price but they would honor it. Drove it, came back and made a deposit, picked up few days later. My current one we were looking online and talking seriously with the dealer about 400 miles away. Walked into the dealer 15 miles away and took a look at what they had. Third one we looked at DW liked the floor plan, counter space, discovered it had a combo washer/dryer and she said "ohh...do you want to drive it?" It meet my length requirement so we went for a drive. Price was a little more than we wanted but got a few extras tossed in, decent price on the trade, made deposit. Picked up a few days later with it full of fuel and propane. I have talked to the salesman a few times since, he is just the kind of person I could sit and BS with over a case of beer. He is just a nice person. He did tell me later the full fuel tank was a mistake by the them but they weren't going to pump it out.

RE: Why a class A gas over class C?

Can somebody give me examples of class A’s with the pulldown Bunk over the driver seat. I am thinking with a small child this is the way to go My Fleetwood Bounder 34T has the drop down and I think most of the Bounders have that as an option. I never saw a dropdown that was much for comfort. Mine, as well as others that I have seen, have about a inch and a half of foam over wood slats. About the time the grandkids are old enough to safely stash them up there they figure out it ain't that comfortable. But then they do like watching the TV up there.

RE: Sway bars

Free stuff first. Start with the correct tire pressure, if you can get a weight first, great. If not start what the sticker says. Don't exceed the pressure on the sidewall. Then the Cheap Handeling Fix. Simple to do if you can turn a wrench. It may help, if not you have only a hour of time, or less invested. Hellwig sway bars at sdtrucksprings.com. Do the rear first. It is a secondary bar to the OEM. You can DIY but it is a job. If you decide to do the front one it still is a job but not near as bad. Trac bar (panhard bar) ar ultrarv.com. You can also DIY but can be a job. You sound like it isn't needed. Safe-T-Plus also at UltraRV. Then again you don't seem like wandering and steering issues isn't a problem. Has been said alingment. Might help but remember on a solid axel all the can do is the toe-in and camber. Be sure they can check your rear for proper tracking. Good luck

RE: OR/WA Loop June/July

As for Crater Lake at that time of year you should be able to get up to the lodge and at least see the lake. The south access road is open all year for the most part. You may be able to take some of the rim drive around the lake. You can watch the website for the lake and get updates then decide. I have also been there in mid August and woke to a couple of inches of snow too. Collier State Park makes for a fine day trip up to the lodge. Like the others have said the logging museum is worth it if any of you like old iron. It is self-guided and the price is right. My then 10 year old grandson became a fair logger while we were there on summer. Another place is to see is the Lava Lands and the lava cave, about a mile plus walk into it. Worth it too.

RE: hydraulic lift in receiver on class A towing a Prius

I have often wondered why the lift couldn't be modified or installed for use on a motorhome. Guess I won't have to wonder any longer or reinvent the wheel.

RE: Brake systems for dinghy

NSA ReadyBrute Elite. Worse part of installing the brake cable was getting under the car.

RE: Ford Focus Titanium Hatchback standard motor.

2015 Focus SE, auto transmission. Bought used from dealer demo fleet. Had the transmission shifting issues and fixed under warranty. No other problems. Put in neutral, wait for the ready message, disconnect battery, remove key and depart. Like driving it. Usual small car road noise but not terrible. Plenty of zip when you want to scoot out. Installed the Blue Ox base plate myself, toughest part was drilling the 1 1/4 inch holes in the frame/bumper to install the nuts on mounting the bolts. And getting the lard butt up off the floor. Put a disconnect switch on the negative post as Ford requires disconnecting the negative cable. Used the NSA Ready Brute Elite tow bar. I like it as no need to run a charge wire to keep a brake unit powered. The toughest part was running the braking cable getting under the car.

RE: Roku or chromcast tv sticks

Roku stick here. Forgot ours from home when we left last time and bought one at a local store. We stream to it with our iPhones on an AT&T connection. Had a Chromcast but never could get it to work well. It seems as Roku has their act together and never had a problem with them.

RE: Vacuflush toilet won't flush - help!

There is a thread at http://www.irv2.com/forums/f107/vacuflush-tips-306571.html on the VacuFlush. It has wandered away from the orginal post but has a lot of info in it. Also lot of past discussion too so use the fourm search there too. Are you sure the tank is empty? There is a float switch in the black tank that can hang up not allowing a flush. Red light means it is getting power so no fuse issues.

RE: Building an RV park for overnighters?

Here is a recent thread https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/29458114.cfm and there has been more. The way to make a small fortune in RV Parks is to start with a large fortune.

RE: Newer Ford F53 and 6R140

My 2016 Bounder with a manufacture date in February has the six speed. Really like it. In answer to the question they were introduced in 2016.
