RE: car dolly

If the dolly is doing 100mph and loaded with whacky tobacco you may get stopped, other than that I wouldn't worry. Been to 46 states so far and 55or60 thousand miles no problem.

RE: Rt 220 S from Roanoke VA to Greensboro NC?

There is no reason for you not to go. I do it all the time with 35ft towing. Follow 220 south to US68 then straight to I40. just follow the trucks.

oder problem

I have an Itasca 36F that has 2 bath rooms. Love the floor plan but I have a problem. The small mid coach bath room has a terrible odor as does the compartment below where the black tank pump is located. I have used plenty of the black tank deodorant pills, lots of water, flush it often, checked all fittings and clamps and still have terrible smell. Could this be a vent problem? Has anyone else had this problem?

tv help quick

I have a wineguard G2 carry out that I'm using for the first time. It was my understanding it was mostly plug and play, not so. I have traveled from Va to Fla and tried to call and get my programming on this receiver the same as it is in home. After numerous calls and long waits on hold, nothing. I have tried calling Direct TV twice and Wineguard twice nothing. Is there a magic formula for this, I'd hate to think I paid five big ones and nothing.

RE: Vista LX 35F

I have a Itasca Sunstar 35f and its rock solid. Check out the shower, its BIG. haven't used one in a camp ground yet. The two black tanks is no problem with one hook up. You won't go wrong with a Winnebago product.

RE: Where to RV in Ohio?

You won't go wrong with your RV in Ohio Holmes county and surrounding area offer lots of great places to visit Rosco Village Lehmans hardware to name a couple. Lake Erie and Sandusky with Cedar Point is a nice place to visit and remember the great lakes, no salt and no sharks!!

RE: Tow Dolly

Surge brakes is the only way to go. I've pulled my demco for 50 thousand plus miles with no problems. Two different motor homes and two different cars same ol dolly just new tires.

RE: Looking at a 2015 Itasca Sunstar 30T Any Advice??

I have a Sunstar 35f and have done the cheap handling fix and pull a Toyota rav4 on a dolly and have no issues. I have driven trucks all my life as a heavy eqt operator and I think it drives fine.

RE: Carry out tv

looks as if the carryout G2 from Wineguard is the way to go!

Carry out tv

I'm going to purchase a carry out antenna for Direct tv. What's the best and has anyone got one off the ignorant net? What other hardware is needed and how hard are the to set up? Thanks

RE: 2015/2016 models with 2 baths, bunks choices

Rick Jay, never saw the need to weigh either moho I owned as its just me and dw and we travel light. Pull a Toyota Rav 4 on a dolly and never fill water more than 1/3 and the biggest thing underneath is my golf bats.

RE: 2015/2016 models with 2 baths, bunks choices

I have a 2014 Itasca 35f. Love it to death. I would stay with the Vista or Sunstar both are Winneybago products and are carried by camping world. If you need warranty service far from home they are easy to find. With the drop down bunk, the couch, the bunks the dinette there should be plenty of options.

RE: Route to Smokies

Riverside rv park and resort in Sevierville. Its on Boyd's Creek Road about 100yds off the main drag. Nice and quiet and still close to every thing. Those folks are right about Chattanooga come up I-24 to I-40 a couple of times, never got into one of those backups but traffic is a real bi!$h.

127 yard sale

Dw and I are thinking of trying the worlds longest yard sale. Going to a camp ground near Crossville Tenn and using the toad to go north and south on 127. Now my questions, will finding a campsite be any trouble, are there better areas to use as a home base and any thing else you want to add. Thanks.

RE: Jersey to the Keys

Coastal Carolina is fairly new and nice. Be sure to hit Sonny's Bar-B-Q. Pecan Park just north of Jacksonville will work and is right on I-95.

RE: surge or electric brakes

Get surge brakes and don't believe the stuff about not being able to back up. I have pulled a Demco Kar Katty for 7 years behind 2 motor homes with 2 different cars and never had a problem. Just hook load and go. There are people who put a lot of negative info on here because they bought a cheap dolly or they never learned how to use one. And no you don't have to have extra lights. I have pulled my dolly in every state except Alaska and Nebraska without a problem. Buy a good Demco with surge brakes and forget it.

RE: New to tow dollys

I have towed with a dolly for 7 years, its Demco car katty with surge brakes. Since the workhorse chassis takes a lot of leg to stop, I know I've owned one, I would get a dolly with surge brakes. If you can find a demco I promise you that you will be glad you did. Especially when that thing helps you steer out of a tight gas stop. Just my 2 cents
