RE: Drawers in a Travel Trailer

camper drawers are built to stay shut. In 30 years of towing campers. I have yet to have a drawer, OR cabinet door open.

RE: How often do you cook in the RV

We never really cook in the TT. I personally don't want all that stuff to settle in my camper. We use the microwave for popcorn, and things like that. However w hen we setup. I setup a complete outdoor kitchen. A campstove, and grill. and when we have hookups, a toaster oven, and electric griddle. We do however make corn bread in the oven every now and then.

RE: Ok,change in direction! Atlantic ocean in February(ish)!

That's what I was thinking myself but thought I should ask anyway! I would be just as happy just sitting by the ocean and hearing the waves crash to shore! I think for my husbands warm water request we're just going to have to wait for warmer weather! :) All the campgrounds at Myrtle Beach have heated indoor pools

RE: WDH while staying hooked up overnight

i also stay hooked up for overnight stays, with stabilizers down. but i always unplug 7 way, after learning the hard way when it drained my TV battery. had everything hooked up in front of the house for about 2 days prepping for a trip, and wasn't on shore power. battery wasn't dead after just overnight, but probably about 18-20 hours and car wouldn't start. i figure why risk it, 7 way plug is easy to pull for that overnight stop. Draining the battery depends on what TV you have. Ford TV electric systems only energize the trailer when the ignition is turned on. So leaving the 7 pin connected is not a problem.

RE: WDH while staying hooked up overnight

I always hook up the day before we leave on a trip. I have left it hooked up for a few days. Hurts nothing. Why should it?

RE: Dog urinating and defecating on your site while owners watch

Only ONE solution. Diapers. Force all dogs to wear diapers. End of problem, OHHHHH! and get them a shirt that says. Does this diaper make my butt look big? :B:S:B:R:B

RE: Charleston SC to DC

We use US-17 up and down the East Coast from Norfolk to Charleston. NC-544 to NC-31 to NC-9 to US-17 will bypass most of Myrtle Beach. If you take US-13 North where it splits from US-17 near Windsor, NC; you can pickup US-460 near Suffolk, VA which will take you to I-295/95 near Richmond. If you stay on US-17 it will take you to I-95 just South of Fredricksburg, VA. Pretty sure that is just a Typo. however Just to be clear. 544, 31, 9, and Myrtle Beach are all in South Carolina. Also from 9. You can hit SC 701 to NC 410 to NC 74 and on to I 95

RE: Campfire smoke

Odd that so many posters claim you cannot camp without a fire. We have not had a campfire for ourselves in decades. The only time we ever build a fire is when the grandkids are with us and we make s'mores, then we just use briquets. We do not object to others having a fire, we just do not want one ourselves. At night we stargaze for a while then go to bed. I cannot count the numbers of times I have an arriving camper in hot weather (100+ heat) build a blazing fire the first thing -- before camp is even set up. I never understood why. Never said YOU couldn't. Said we couldn't. With out a fire for us. It is not camping. It is RVing. We RV at the beach, We camp in the mountains. With out a fire in the mountains. May as well be in a motel. It is just our preference. Every one is not the same. And You are correct about the heat. That is why we have no fire at the beach. Too hot. But all summer long above 3000' on the Blue Ridge. It is cool enough to snuggle up to a fire. Which is why we have a 3000' rule. Never camp below 3000' unless there is an ocean in front of you. Nothing like cooking breakfast outside, and then warming by the fire while you eat. yeah. We do all our cooking out side as well

RE: Campfire smoke

Camping requires a campfire made of wood (not propane) it's the law. Some campers don't have the skill set yet to get the fire burning right away. They lack experience. But think back, we all did once upon a time too. Go help them, let them know how to do it right... Not true, especially when the law says no campfires except propane (we are in drought conditions and if you don't have a propane fire, you don't have one at all... Guess you would just stay home and not camp if you have to have wood fueled campfire... BTW, I like a wood fueled campfire, but with the fire conditions, I will use propane and not take the risk.. (of getting cited or starting a wild fire).. That's what I do. IF there is a campfire ban in the mountains. I just stay home. It ain't camping with out a real fire. However. We do not have a fire at the beach. It is way too hot there to sit around a fire.

RE: was this one of you guys??

All I can say. The TT wasn't that big. So he has plenty of truck. I believe his tongue weight to be light, in large part because of the carrier on the back. There is NO substitute for a properly setup WDH. His wasn't. AND if you look. The truck was RAISED. So, It appears to be a poorly setup combination.

RE: No Generator

After a lot of research we thought we were going with a class A. Now we’ve changed our minds and going with a 5th wheel. The one we like is the Forest River 377FLIK. The only issue is it does not come with a generator. Since we want a residential refrigerator I’m not sure how long the unit will run on the batteries. I also know there are portable generators you can get and I probably will too but was just wanting to see how others deal with this. Is a 2000 or 3000 watt the best way to go? I don't know where you intend to camp. But you should know before you get a Generator. IF you camp in a National Park. You will not be allowed to run it during quiet hours (night), and also may be restricted to just a couple hours during designated time during the day. If however you plan on boon docking, staying at sporting events, or Wal Mart parking lots. A generator would be good to have.

RE: Need travel trailer recommendations

I towed my first TT with a 2002 Expedition. So one of my questions Is. Why do you think you need air bags? They will do nothing for you. The WDH will do everything you need to do. It will return lost weight and steering control to the front axle. Air bag will not do that. IMOP, after towing a 27' 6000lb+ TT with a Expe. Air bags will be a waste of your money. As for a used TT. check out Craigs list, and look at the roof very carefully. It is true. Your budget is very low to get a good used TT. You may need to bump that up some. Use the money you would have wasted on air bags to boost it some. Also try RV trader. as for brand. Means nothing really

RE: Slides only work with Shore Power

Just wondering. Do 2, 6 volt batteries. Make a 12 volt system? Or just more power for a 6 volt system. Isn't that why you need a 12 volt battery to operate a 12 volt system? and a 12 volt battery won't necessarily operate a 6 volt system? Don't know just asking

RE: I think this forum is dangerous

My biggest problem with Maxxis is that you have to order them from most dealers....that means they come from a warehouse...sometimes they can be 2 plus years old by the time you get them. Thanks! Jeremiah Do what I do. Specify the age of the tires, and if they are not new. Don't buy them. I tell my tire guy I want NEW tires. He knows if I read the code, and they are old. They are going back, and I ALWAYS read the code before allowing them to be mounted on my TT, or TV. It is YOUR money, They are YOUR tires. You don't have to take just anything. YOU are in control.

RE: Dodge Ram trucks buyback ordered

This is an FYI, not a flame on Chrysler. Not trying to start a brand wars thread. I wish this could be the case, but we all know where it will lead and the bickering that will ensue. I don't see where this agreement is helpful to the consumer in any way. Does someone else see something I don't see? An owner is free to trade their truck in any time they wish. Where you gonna trade a truck on the buy back list? All the dealer know about the problem. No one wants it. that is why Ram should make it good. To prevent a huge loss to their customers, and IF they do that. They may not lose all their customers, and go out of business. So, it is in Chrysler's best interest to make their customers experience right. their business depends on it.

RE: Electric Trailer Brake Question

Not all trailers will lock the brakes. A flat bed will because of the low weight, especially empty. In truth. you should NOT feel the trailer brakes come on in normal braking. The TV, and trailer should brake as one. You should only feel them when you use the manual lever. It should be a pretty good jerk depending on speed. Try it at 25, to 35 mph. You will have less jerk at higher speeds. My TT brakes will not lock with the lever either. However. Ina HARD braking situation. I can hear the TT tire cry as they almost lock up.

RE: Dodge Ram trucks buyback ordered

You can rest assured that Chrysler won't pay you any more than current "blue book" value for a truck. What they're counting on is that most people will not accept the buyback, due to the fact that they're coming out on the short end of the stick. You prolly right. The owner's are screwed.

RE: Dodge Ram trucks buyback ordered

I still of the opinion that Ram should just give the affected customers a NEW truck. That would solve everything. Other than that. they should have to buy them back at NEW truck prices so that the customer suffers no financial harm. I'm not putting down any of the trucks. I just know IF they were to buy back my truck at Blue Book price. I could not go buy another comparable truck. It is only fair to leave the customer in the same condition they started with. Even if they gave customers a new truck, and have them still make the same payments on the original loan. that would be fair.
