RE: Class C

You have a lot of weight behind the rear wheels and that takes weight off of the front axle. If you do not have at least 80% of the maximum weight on the front axle you will have handling problems and you will not be able to correct them till you get the weight back on the axle. Weigh your rig loaded as you would be for trip including the jeep hooked up.

RE: Do I need an external surge protector? Other essentials?

Had a campground owner the reason that low voltage is becoming more of a problem than in the past is that campgrounds that are over 10 years old were designed with usage based on one AC per RV. Now there are more and more two and even three AC's per RV and the parks system just is not designed for that load and the result is low voltage.

RE: My Ford E350 running a bit hotter

Had a similar problem and it was not overheating. Get a infrared thermometer when the gauge reads hot stop open the hood and aim the infrared thermometer at a angle along the length of the upper radiator hose. When I did this found the temp was the same as when the gauge was reading lower. Turns out that in our e350 there is a resistor in the instrument panel that was going out causing the temp gauge to spike. Watch your fuel gauge we noticed that it would change when the temp gauge spiked.

RE: Thinking of getting a Dolly

Lets clarify something on the Acme tow dolly there is no twisting yes the wheels of the car being towed turn on the dolly when you make a turn but they are turning just like they would turn if your were driving it. I have stood behind our with a car on it and walked next to it the wheels tracked correctly and no dragging of the dolly even in the sharpest of turns.

The loudest drunkest group we ever were camped next to was the annual gathering of local law enforcement officers. We lived with it

RE: How do you lock/secure your generator?

Look underneath and see if there are any bolts that can be removed. If so bolt a 1/8 inch piece of steel that is long enough to park a tire on.

RE: Thinking of getting a Dolly

IMO, the only dolly to buy is one that has some method of steering. The American Tow Dolly, Mastertow dolly, and others, have "turntable" steering. IMO, that is adequate. The Demco Kar Kaddy dolly has king pin steering, with a shimmy damper to control wheel shimmy. There may be others that have such steering. I had an older Kar Kaddy a few years ago. It worked great, IMO. I sold it because it did not have brakes. That was a dumb thing to do! Yes, such steerable dollys are not cheap, but I would never buy any other kind. As for the "problems" loading or unloading a dolly, all I can say is that we are all individuals. What one person finds to be unsupportable, another will find to be no problem at all. The only way you will find out what YOU like is to actually try it. Good luck. And I prefer the ACME dolly system of letting the car do the steering, Lighter weight and tighter turning without risk of denting car. To each his own.

RE: Camping in Glacier NP area

Another vote for St Mary's KOA. They also have a dog walking service so if your are traveling with a dog you can take the all day Red Jammer Tour.

RE: Thinking of getting a Dolly

1999 Nissan Quest loads just fine but unloading the dolly would want to catch the back edge of some plastic shields solution was to lay a piece of cardboard underneath the Quest problem solved.

RE: Toad or No Toad

We did not have a TOAD when we were traveling like you said 3 to 5 days at one place. If we needed we rented a car and enjoyed tours. Now when we are staying at one place for a month we have a TOAD.

RE: Towing laws

Before I towed I rented a U Haul tow dolly that does not have brakes. The tow dolly that I have now has brakes. I can tell you that on more than one occasion I would have been involved in a wreck with out the brakes on the tow dolly from people pulling out in front of me. And I am within my GVWR.

RE: RV Fuel Issues & Prices - Post 'Em Here!
