RE: Diverticulosis

I had the surgery to remove some of my colon ten years ago because of acute diverticulitis. It gave me my life back. It was a MOST SUCCESSFUL surgery. After recovery I was as good as new again. It completely solved my problem. Look here for more info on the surgery. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/002941.htm

RE: 3° is more than I thought (fridge levelling)

Me thinks that you are all going nuts with this leveling. Our frig has worked fine for 14 years and we find that if we are comfortable the frig is comfortable with it also.

RE: PATRIOT ACT required personal info before you can negotiate?

Tell them you are going to pay with a personal bank check. The patriot act does not come into play then. I ran into this just recently when I purchased a new car. I put the balance due, which was over $10,000, on my cash back credit card. That was a mistake as three days later I got caught up in the ten stupid questions required so I could prove I was me.

RE: Please leave it at home!

Boy that's a new one for the books. But, I agree a headset would be mandatory. Some peeps just have no sense whatsoever.

RE: 2014 Alaska Trip Lessons/Info

When we went to Alaska we never stopped at a commercial campground. We parked overnight mostly at Provincial parks. Enroute on the ALCAN highway we found many places to just pull off the road in a scenic area and use the gen to provide necessities. Many of these scenic areas were where the builders of the road made camp. We found the roads to be good. In fact, they were better roads than we had when I was growing up in the 1940's and 50's.

RE: Travel Centers America

I find that Travel Centers of America have higher prices for their fuel. I avoid them whenever possible.

RE: New entry ladder

If you always go to the same campground you probably know that you can find a level spot for that step ladder. We find a lot of campgrounds where you couldn't find a spot for that ladder to sit safely. It looks like a falling accident ready to happen.

RE: Loose rubber seal on bay door

I have used super glue on the door seals that came loose. It holds great. Use the liquid super glue not the gel.

RE: LP Refrigerator use at high altitude

We have crossed the Rocky Mountains several times with our fiver and never had any problems with using the refrigerator on propane.

RE: Adding a better lock to the door.

I wonder if the door lock isn't pretty good actually. I used to store my fiver and it was broken into twice. Both times the lock held so they broke out the big picture window beside the door. One time the broke out the entrance door window but they couldn't unlock the door because I had both locks set.

RE: Loading weight & distribution on a 5th wheel

If you put weight right on the axle the pin weight will not change. If the weight is behind the axle the pin weight will be less. Weight forward or the axle will add to the pin weight. As you put weight forward of the axle more of that weight is transferred to the pin depending on how far forward the weight is. Likewise the further aft the weight is behind the axle the pin weight is decreased accordingly. Get a good physics book and look up lever arms. Basically, the fulcrum is between the two axles

RE: Help with trailer brakes

I have gotten those messages on my dash. I found that the female round plug on the truck was defective.

I don't see a problem with that. I agree with you trying to get a ruling from the BWI parking folks.

RE: 5th Wheel Longevity

We don't live in our fiver full time. We live and travel in it four months out of the year in the summer. Our fiver has been down the road for 114,000 miles and is fourteen years old. I do make sure the running gear maintenance is looked after and repair or replace things in the department as needed. The frame seems to be in excellent shape. The rugs, curtains, sofa, bed, dinette, stove, air conditioner and refrigerator are all original items. We have had to replace the microwave, two water pumps, three storage batteries, the toilet, kitchen sink faucet, the shower head, the TV antenna system (New antenna and a new coaxial cable run from antenna to TV), and the electric convertor. We have repaired the window cornices and valences several times. I rebuilt the cabinet that held the old 32 inch TV so a new flat screen could be installed. I have had to repair all the inside doors for one reason or another. I have put new brakes on it. Replaced the spring shackles with wet bolt shackles. I have replaced the shocks twice. We are on our third set of tires. We had the foldup entrance steps rebuilt. We have done repairs to main slide mechanism twice. I rebuilt the ladder to the roof. I have repaired the two roof vent covers due to the mounting bolt holes cracking. I have replaced the front 1/4 of the rubber roof. I have had wheels wells rebuilt four times due to tire failures. Oh yes, and replaced numerous light bulbs and fixtures both interior and exterior. Guess that's about it.

RE: Need help on what tires to get

I have always ran Michelin's on my trucks for 20 years now and have had really good luck with them. If you go for the Michelin Light Truck tire they call the LTX M/S be sure and get the one that is ten ply loaded rated E. They will cost you around $220 each plus mounting. I just had a set installed for $960 total cost tires and mounting at WalMart.

RE: Normal Lifespan of A/C Units?

The AC on my fiver has been working for 14 years now. I keep my fingers crossed as it really gets a workout in the summer.

RE: Copy and Paste

"I've been having trouble using copy and paste when composing a post for quite some time." I did a copy and paste to put your first sentence in this message. You don't have to select quote. You copy from one message with a right click to outline the copy material and a left click to copy. You do the same thing again in your message to paste what you copied.

RE: TV Free air antenna

I replaced my batwing with this jack antenna when my batwing got damaged because I forgot to lower it. I find this jack antenna to be most satisfactory. We dropped DirectTV several years ago and now we watch movies on our DVD player and watch the local channels we get over the air with our jack antenna. In the past three months we have traveled from Florida to upper Vermont, then on to Nebraska, down to Missouri and Texas before come home via Alabama. We got TV stations at most every place we stopped. Closer to the big cities we would get 25 to 40 channels. I am most satisfied with this antenna.

RE: Inept or not properly trained dispatcher

Had a blowout on my fifth wheel on I-80 pa. Dispatcher took info and stated she would call back in 15 min. 1 hr later I called back stated she was still looking for a service tech. I Called back 1/2 later she state she checked within a 100 mile radius and could not find anyone to respond. She told me to call the State Police . I called the PA state Police and they stated I was close to a service station and they would send him.. Barons Sunoco showed up in less then 10 minutes and did a great job changing the tire and getting me back on my way. The charge $50. Less then what the roadside assistance cost and a lot faster. To make it worse another dispatcher called back after about 2 hrs later and stated that she wanted to confirm that I cancelled the need for service. I advised her I did not cancel the service call and that I was instructed by the dispatcher to call the police. She told me she would send me a form to fill out to reimburse the cost. I'm waiting for the form. I hate to say it, but I have used Good Sams road service about three times over the years and each time I found the dispatcher I got on the phone to be inept.
