RE: Cold tire pressure question?

My TT routinely seems to lose 5psi over winter storage, so three of those pressures look "normal". I would fill them up, but keep an eye on that low tire in case it has some sort of slow leak. I wouldn't bother with "nitrogen fill", but if you know a shop nearby who will do it for free then go for it!

RE: Using TT as guest house

If he is allergic to cats, then that solves the issue... he has to stay outside of the house for an extended stay. I know there are different levels of "allergic" - we have 3 cats in our house, and a friend of ours can only be in our house for maybe 15 minutes due to allergies. But I would think even mildly allergic would mean no sleeping in the house. Good luck!

RE: Using TT as guest house

I am also wondering about the "firmly requested"? We've had the kids have sleepovers in the TT. I can allow them to use the bathroom for #1, but #2 needs the house bathroom. We can rinse out the black tank where we park it at home (basically in the woods), so a little pee doesn't hurt anything. Friends have had people use their 5th a couple times during family gatherings and it has worked well. Kind of adds to the event! My Dad needs to be near a bathroom (with no restrictions), and uses a walker, so using our TT would not work for him. My brother in law once suggested that he wanted to use our TT over one winter years ago... we squashed that in no uncertain terms - he is a HEAVY smoker, even if he didn't smoke in the TT just his person smoke smell would stink it up. Also, he thinks he knows, and can fix, everything - even though most of what he touches ends up being broken.

RE: Surprise for hubby, help with numbers.

Well, sounds like your friends are "well off", which is great. If they (or he, or she, or whoever) wants a TT that will stay parked on a certain property, why not look at "park" model campers? Larger, setup more like a house, designed to be towed essentially from the dealer (dealer usually arranges for a towing service) to a campsite and stay there. What about buying new? Used campers can have a host of issues, some serious, most just annoying. I am one of those who don't like big "surprises", but we also don't have a whole lot of extra cash to play with. As to what she is looking at right now, yes the vehicles you cite can tow it, definitely to at least its campsite. 28 foot TT is pretty big, and those weight numbers for it seem light to me, I would double check that the weights are correct.

RE: Packets or Liquid for Black water tank

Or... if you have the bathroom vent fan running when you flush. Try to remember to shut off the vent fan while flushing, turn back on when done.

RE: Need recommendations: Drinking/RV/Boating Hose

Well, you probably won't have anyone else bothering your hose -- purple colored water lines and connections usually mean non-potable (do not drink) water. This may be a regional thing, though. Hmmm.. on reading the link, the manufacturer states it is "safe to drink from" - which is fine, just seems odd that they colored the hose purple. The reviews mostly seem good! I'm going to try this hose I found on Amazon that seems to be able to take everyday heavy usage....and supposedly high water pressures....and YES...different then the white hoses in color but is "Lead Free" http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006CFYD9Q/ref=pe_385040_121528360_TE_dp_1 It's purple or "eggplant" colored! Will have to repost an update or review after I've tried it. http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/91nozBI8-iL._SL1500_.jpg height=250 width=250 Manufactured in the United States using 100% lead-free, BPA-free, top quality, UV stabilized FDA & NSF grade polyurethane Solid chrome-plated machined brass fittings provide a long-lasting, never-tarnish, durable hose fitting which also prevents lead from leaching into the water Specially engineered strain reliefs on both hose ends to prevent hose kink; Flexible in all weather conditions, even freezing temperatures 4-5 gallons per minute flow rate--plenty for most any job around the home, garden or shop Soft, flexible and effortless to use; Hose weighs only 3 pounds for every 50 feet

RE: Tow vehicle

FOMC) says a 2014 F-150 with a 3.5L eco boost engine and a 3.73 locking axel rear end ... I was just surprised reading that... an F150 has a locking axel rear end?? Is this part of a special order setup? Do you mean limited slip?

RE: Low Tech ......Toilet/Tank Issue

Best thing is to use more water... But, if you really want to conserve water and are "off grid", don't use the black tank! Use the campground facilities, outhouse (if available), or woods if boondocking.

RE: Need recommendations: Drinking/RV/Boating Hose

I just bought the white hose with blue stripe from Walmart marked for drinking water. Works fine, except the connections at the ends aren't great - takes some fiddling to get them to be leak free. Some people say it is a myth, but I have found that hoses marked "drinking water" (which are usually white with a blue stripe) definitely impart much less of the rubber flavor to water.

RE: TT or 5th, best TV to go with them?

If the camper is only going to be moved maybe 2 times (dealer to campground, then to another campground)... why not look into paying for having it towed to the campground? Otherwise you will be doing groceries for months in a 1 ton dually truck.

RE: Shower hygiene

First, check your body's ph balance. Once that is corrected you don't have to worry about fungus or athlete's foot. I don't think there is much to worry about in a public shower. If it's dirty it's not disease, it's dirt. What? Body's "PH balance"? I've never heard that one before. I do like the last sentence -- I may use that as a signature if that is okay!

RE: Great RV Escapes Savings System???

"Practically every campground in America"... Hmm, never seen or heard of that organization at any campground we've been to in New England. Good Sam and Passport America we've seen signs for.

RE: Cape Cod

We stayed at Atlantic Oaks two years ago and will echo the positive reviews. The pull through sites at the rear of the campground are surprisingly large. The Rail Trail is awesome for biking - very easy too, the few hills it has are very gentle.

RE: Small RVs (<26') with bunk beds?

try this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-A9FR9tSJyc I like the net that can be put up on the back upper bunk. In the video he says "for storage", so I guess it is not meant to be used when someone is sleeping in the bunk - but an interesting idea to prevent roll outs.

RE: Bathroom door out of plumb

1/2" out of plumb for a door is a heck of a lot. You've checked everything around it (wall, floor, etc) to see that everything else is correct? I'm surprised that the door will close at all that much out of plumb. Do you know any carpenters that could take a look at it? Do you know if your dealer is good at doing repairs like that? Because, if you are having no other issues with the camper, maybe you don't want them working on the door (and maybe causing more problems). Does your warranty last into next season? Maybe wait a bit to see if anything comes up the dealer may have to fix. We always travel with the bathroom door closed. Usually always have it open when camping (unless someone is using it!), to allow for venting when we use the fan in the bathroom skylight.

RE: Remington Factory Museum in Ilion, New York

Went there with a group several years ago, we had to make an appointment. It takes about 1 1/2 hours to tour. Thanks... I have to look at our travel times and see if we can make it. I'll try calling them to see if we can walk around without an appointment.

RE: Heard A Rumor

I recently heard a rumor that you should change your tires every 2 years or so. This basically applies to the cheapies (tires not people). Have any of you heard this before? Never heard that... EXCEPT if you put a lot of miles on them in two years! I have equipment trailers that need new tires almost every other year, but they are on the road virtually every day. Check your tires every time you are getting ready to go somewhere.

RE: Full hookup questions

Somewhere on here someone just had a catastrophe with sewage being pushed back through their trailers system when they left the gray tank open, and the campground had a major problem. I will leave mine closed till dumping. Yuck Hadn't seen that thread before... makes me re-think leaving the grey water drain open...

RE: Full hookup questions

We do "modified" navy showers. Quick rinse, shut off shower, soap up, then take our time rinsing off. As others have mentioned, hot water heater, even though only 6 gallons, lasts a surprisingly long time and is quick to reheat. Our TT's shower stall is quite small, so not too comfortable for long showers... and for better or worse, absolutely no room for two people... Grey water valve we leave open when hooked to sewer. Close it the day before leaving to fill the tank a bit so I can rinse the stinky slinky when dumping the black tank the next day.

Remington Factory Museum in Ilion, New York

Anyone been to the Remington Factory Museum in Ilion, New York? Son and I will be camping with friends in upstate New York. In looking around the area, I saw the museum is not too far away. How big is it? How much time to go through it? Thanks!
