RE: West travel

Yes it will be hot and yes it will be crowded but the things you will see are awesome. And I promise you when you get home you will say we missed something. I have been 3 times from Va. once clockwise once counter clockwise and once through the middle. I would suggest you pick an area say northern route and see that area, Wall drug, Mitchel corn palace, Devils tower, Sturges, Deadwood, Yellowstone well you get the idea. Even with a month you will be pushing it.

RE: We're all tired of reading about 'wandering' problems....

I have a 2014 winney on a f-53 ford and the only thing I've done is the C.H.F. and built a trac bar. Do these 2 things and you will be amazed.

Demco dolly

For people who own a Demco dolly go to the acme tow dolly site and watch the video and see what you think.

RE: Wiper Blades

Camping world has a folder that shows your unit and the correct replacement. I know I feel the same way about them but you only have to buy them once. You can go there and get the correct part no. then go to Amazon.

tires

Checking the ol moho over for a big spring trip and the tires just didn't look right. Made a trip down to my tire guy and he says these tires are 5 years old and they are real iffy for even a short trip. The tires are oem Michelins with 35k miles. They are cracked bad up next to the rim so I have 6 new ones on the way but not Michelins. Is this the norm for these tires? I have dealt with this father and son as my father for well over 50 years so don't go there. Just want to know is this what other people are experiencing.

RE: All The Usual Stuff?

I have seen several post on CGs that have rc tracks but no one has been able to tell me which ones have tracks and what they run. My son and I use to race every weekend. I am unable to play golf any more and this sounds like fun.

RE: Tow Dolly - newbie recommendations

I have owned a Demco for 9 years and learned a lot about tow dollies. They are not nearly as much trouble as people claim. In all this time I have had to in hook in a camp ground twice. Most campgrounds have a pull through. As said before get one with turn table plate or one that steers. Get surge brakes so you can use it behind other vehicles. They do not need to be licensed and your vehicle does not need extra lights. I currently toe a Rav 4 with a 36ft gasser so you will be OK.

rc tracks

I have read that some parks have rc tracks but searching the parks they make no mention of them. Can someone pass on a little info about this?

New florida hangout

Dw and I have been staying in Bushnell Florida but might be looking for a change. Just watched a video of Winter Garden and that looks pretty interesting and not as costly as places we've been staying. So anyone have any suggestions? We don't need the ocean and I don't play golf any more. Flea markets would be a plus!

RE: Tow Dolly with surge brakes - recommendations?

I'm with farm boy and jaxdad I back my demco car kaddy all the time and surge brakes do work. In a panic stop I've locked the wheels so they work. Two class As 2 cars same Demco dolly. Nine years and 70k miles and counting.

RE: How to fix sway on Newmar Baystar

You can put all of your money on those other "fixes" but none will stop the tail from wagging the dog until you install a trac bar. What it does is keeps the diff centered in the frame. If you do a search on Irv2 you will find a lot of info. A lot of people build there own as I did. They are not rocket science, you can buy one and have it installed but its kinda pricey around $500 I think. Most any welding shop should be able to help. good luck

RE: 30A with one A/C keep looking or modify..

I think I would crank up turn on the dash air and drive to a repair shop.

RE: 30A with one A/C keep looking or modify..

First rv was a 30ft sightseer with 30amp and one air, never had a problem. Sometimes wish I had it back.

RE: New car on dolly. - Ford Fusion 5

On my Rav all the front is plastic , so there was a hole about 6in wide so I ran a steel cable around and down and just run chains through it. Only problem is people keep asking what's hanging down from the front of my car.

RE: Cheap Handling Fix - Bolt Missing

Well I am shocked. I thought there were some pretty sharp dudes on here. The suggestions of tougher bolts, nylon nuts, turning them around and such does not address the problem of what causing this in the first place. Why is it that side and not the other, why does it do it repeatedly? Trust me folks, something else is wrong other than a china bolt.

RE: Cheap Handling Fix - Bolt Missing

There could be a couple of problems. Is the sway bar centered correctly or has the bushings worn and let move to that side? If it is leaning to one side you need a trip to the spring shop. As far as the dealer goes, they didn't put the top man on that job just to put a bolt in a spring. They didn't check to see why you were having this problem just put in a new bolt.
