RE: right hand lean

I think TucsonJim is on the right track. The only thing I've added to the right side is a case of water and my golf bats. Now every thing else is on that side, generator, fridge. stove, water heater, propane tank and bedroom slide. Its only been on the road 18mo so I don't think its needs springs. Getting back to my original question, what's the best way to correct the problem?

right hand lean

My 2014 35ft Itasca leans to the right. Trust me its not a weight issue unless it came from Iowa that way. Do others have that problem? Will air bags fix the problem? Front or rear? Thanks

RE: Skyline Drive and Blue Ridge Pkwy

I think you'll enjoy the trip. From Front Royal to Afton MT. is only 100 mi. I believe there is a campground at Big Meadow on the skyline. I64 crosses on top of Afton so another fuel stop. When you get to Roanoke about mp 120 the BRP crosses us 220 there is a Walleymart about mile south and Roanoke is about a mile north. At mp 175 is Mabry Mill a must stop. A mile after you cross us52 at Meadows of Dan good fuel stop and I think a campground you will fit into. Why am I telling you all this? Stop at any facility and pick up a Blue Ridge Parkway directory & travel planner. Happy trails

RE: Traveling from SW Michigan to Gettysburg/Landcaster

I come up I-81 from the south to Chambersburg and take 30 into Gettysburg and I also stay at Artillery Ridge. 30 goes right through the middle of the battle field and is a great trip. Its a a little tight in some of the roundabouts but nothing you can't handle. We travel in a 36ft class a with a toad.

RE: Ford F53 CHF (Cheap Handling Fix)

I have a 36ft 2014 Itasca and did the chf before first trip so I have no bench mark to compare. Someone mentioned Tejays fix for the extreme angle on the front of the f53 but I searched irv2 and couldn't find it. Can anyone help with this??

RE: Acme Tow Dolly with Hydraulic Disc Brakes?

Bought my demco dolly 9 years ago and it was used. have pulled it over 60 thousand miles behind 2 motor homes. I keep it greased and have changed tires, lights, wiring and painted it. I've had to unhook at campgrounds 2 times in 9 years. Usually easy to find a pull through, if not I can back it in in most back in sites. P.S. I'm a 68 year old diabetic and I have no problems with the dolly

RE: Natchez Trace PKWY - doable?

Did the trace in a 36ft towing, no problems. When you get to Natchez cross the river and as soon as you come off the bridge take a left and go down to River View RV park. Its in Vidalia LA and nice. There is a lot of civil war history there and worth a couple days exploring. Learning the history of the trace is very interesting and be sure to stop at the station where Lewis of Lewis and Clark fame is buried, very interesting story. Stop along the way and take a road trip to Vicksburg battlefield. Sorry I could go on for a while above all take time to enjoy.

PLanning next year

Been staying in central Fl. for last couple years now I want to go further south, maybe below Tampa -St. Pete need suggestions so I can start checking now. Would like nicer place not full blown resort. Not on the water but within driving distance and usual stuff old birders need. Waiting suggestions.

RE: Snowbird golf green fees

I'm in central Florida and the snowbird league plays a course for $28.50 and there is another course for $20 and $16 after 12 noon. If I were say 3 handicapper I may notice the difference but when you're an 18 you don't really notice. Look in your bag, if you have one of those ball things to dig balls out of the water then the $20 course is good enough. That way you will have some money left to buy some balls.

RE: NASCAR race question

Have you looked at Martinsville? Its not in the infield but up on a hill overlooking track. Never been up there cause I only live 20 mi away but looks nice from stands.

Black tank lights

I have a 2014 Itasca sunstar that all of a sudden the tank lights want to stay on. Sometimes 2, sometimes 3 sometimes all 4. I've emptied and used the flush connection and still they stay on. Could this be electrical? If not what is a sure fire way to correct this problem?

RE: flat towing or tow dolly

Once you learn how to use the straps properly, you can just keep gettin it! I have never heard of a car falling off a dolly because of loose straps. If you follow this forum you will see the number of people who have problems with towing 4 down verses dolly towing. Very few people have, once mastered, have any problems with a dolly. Get a good Demco and forget it. Seven years, 75K miles, 2 cars 2 mohos one dolly.

RE: Virginia to Galveston, TX...questions about I12 and I10

Don't know where in Va you are but if I were headed that way I'd hit I40 to Nashville then go down Natchez Trace, You won't regret it.

tank lights

I have a 2014 Itasca sunstar with 2 black tanks. One started showing 3/4 full for no reason. I emptied and ran the flush for several minutes and then it showed empty as it should, now after 3-4 hours with little or no use its showing 3/4 full again. Hose connected ,valve open. What gives??
