RE: National Parks and the Lack of Adequate # of Camp Sites

Stop accepting reservations or at most make half of the sites unreservable. One problem travelers have is that you may arrive during the week but get kicked out on the weekend because a site is reserved.

Glacier NP Red Bus discounts?

I was wondering if the America the Beautiful Senior Pass discount works for the Red Bus tours? The booking website is down right now so I couldn't get any information. I'm guessing the pass does not work because it appears that Xanterra operates the Red Bus Tours. Are there any other possible discounts?

RE: Seafoam Test....

Try to keep carb cleaner use to a minimum in two stroke engines.

RE: Good Sam RA carryover to a new RV

Pretty sure the coverage is on you and your family, not a specific vehicle.

RE: New renovation to my TT Bathroom

Best of luck with your mod, I look forward to updates. It would be helpful if you listed your RV in your profile or signature line.

RE: TT with Murphy Bed - Forest River and Venture Sonic

...The jist of what I'm trying to accomplish is have more floor space...I just feel that the bed sitting there the whole time could be better utilized space.... I can't help in your search but I also like the Murphy bed concept. I understand and agree with your reasoning. I am currently gutting my toy hauler and building a new interior. It will have a Murphy bed that comes down over a couch. In my case the advantage is low cost and I keep the boondocking capabilities of large tanks, large cargo capacity, and a built in generator. And I get it all at a National Park friendly length. There is no significant gain to a curved or slanted front. Buy the model that best suits your needs. A difference of .5 mpg is meaningless.

RE: Black Tank Flush

How long do folks normally run their black tank flush? Once per year in the fall before winter storage. Maybe 10 to 15 minutes total.

RE: trailer blown off jack stand

Frame is probably fine. In the future, keep the stabilizers up in storage and put the tongue jack on the ground. Stabilizers are for the purpose of reducing movement while inside the trailer. The jacks serve no purpose in storage except provide additional pathways for mice. At home I use a pressure treated 4x4 under the tongue jack to prevent sinking into soft ground.

RE: Long checkout lines at CW

Since this is in the Good Sam Club section rather than Camping World. Don't you know Good Sam is a "marketing tool" according to the CEO's own words? He said the company could best be described as "a financial services company that has some clubs and magazines as marketing tools". http://www.rvbusiness.com/2011/11/good-sam-turns-focus-to-roadside-assistance/

RE: rotten egg smell

We have never had strong odors from the gray water so I wonder what you are putting in the system. You can put the black tank treatment of your choice in the gray tank. When I thick of sulfur (rotten egg) smell my first thoughts go to a boiling battery and secondly to an LPG leak.
beemerphile1 01/15/17 06:13pm Tech Issues

Wow, sounds like you were seriously misled but also made some errors on your end. It sounds very odd but I will not beat up on you without having witnessed what happened. One thing I will suggest, we froze our credit years ago at all three credit agencies making identity theft or any errors like this impossible.

RE: Best place to buy A&E awning tube with fabric?

The shipping for a roller tube will be very expensive. Unless it is bent, just replace the fabric.

RE: 100# Propane Cylinder Transport

It is against the law (and common sense due to the danger should anything happen) to haul any LP tank laying down It must be upright and also secured, larger tanks are usually installed, filled and maintained by the company that will supply the LP gas. If you are going to give legal advice you should at least use the correct terminology. The first things you refer to are vertical DOT cylinders. BTW, there are also horizontal DOT cylinders.

RE: Frustrating furnace issue

A single stage regulator like for a BBQ grille is not approved for RV use. You need to be sure that you use a dual stage regulator and that it is correctly oriented. There are horizontal models and vertical models.

RE: Body Shifted Slightly Off Frame

I wouldn't necessarily run but am suspicious of the 1/4" thing. Knowing how they are built, in order for the body to shift 1/4" it would require that every screw between the frame and floor be sheared.

RE: Fexperience w/ Excel tankless & ventless water heaters?

Those are available under a lot of different names. They are not intended to be used inside a living space. I have seen a couple of pop up owners that mounted them on the outside. Look at the fittings, they are garden hose connections.

RE: Propane Fire Pits

We love our Little Red campfire. The cost is comparable to campground wood but the advantages are tremendous. It is nice to simply turn the fire off and on rather than spend two hours trying to get a decent fire going with wet, green, campground wood. We also use it inside our 10x10 shelter with wind walls and no worries about sparks burning the nylon.

RE: Replacing / Upgrading Electrical Panel

No benefit to replacing the electrical panel but there may be benefit to replacing the converter. What brand and model converter does it have?

RE: Awning Help

Drill, hack saw, and file a new slot in the cap. You might want to add some new rivets on each side of the new slot.

RE: Moving trailer for wheels

Any benefit is so minimal that it is not worth the bother.
