RE: What are your hobbies

In no particular order: hiking, rc sailboats, kites, visit historical sites, sitting and watching others.

RE: From TT to HR Neptune Diesal 35ft

Last September we went from a 04 1500 Ram Quad Hemi with a 322FKS Jayco and ended up in a 03 Neptune DP, 5500 Onan Gen, Allison trans. Gave up a king bed and love the difference. JR45 said it the best as we are both happy even tho it costs more.

RE: Great Lakes weather in the fall?

In Michigan if you are only looking for FHU then most of the private parks will be closing by the end of October. Many by the 15th. It is not too cold but the number of campers makes it not economical to stay open. Some will be open all year but you will find only electric at the sites with restrooms and shower houses heated all year. Some state parks are like this. We do have some that camp in the winter for hunting and snowmobiling.

RE: Lube and fuel filter

Any advise on these maintanence issues? What exactly is the question? I just purchased my coach and had a local place do the chassis lube and engine oil change. Now I'm learning and finding all the filters and lube points. As they come due I plan on doing it myself. Oil change will still be done by them as I don't want to deal with that much old oil. I've replaced the air filter, air filter minder, and gotten replacement filters for all the other items. I'm now working on the service items for the Onan generator. Try to reword your question or expand on it and the group here can help.

RE: Have you tried this Bluetooth Outdoor Speaker w/LED Light

More than I want to spend for an outside light or speaker.

RE: $8K for 1988 Holiday Rambler Imperial 27' Class C?

Unless it is exceptional or one that you can't live without I'd stick close to the NADA book. I redid a 1989 van conversion and got 6k for it with new AC, toilet, convertor, water pump, battery, brakes, engine air, cushions and curtains. It also had a NADA of a high 4k price.

RE: Figuring the correct tire pressure

At the 80psi inflation you are able to handle more weight than what the axle actually has. What you don't know is if the weight on the curb side is the same as the street side. The best route is to weight each corner and use the heaviest weight for each side of the axle as the weight for both tires on that axle. Since you don't know the actual 4 corner weight your estimate is better in having more weight carrying capacity that the actual average. In other words 7280 for the front axle and 13660 for the rear axle. This does give you a little margin for some error in calculation. Less pressure will, or should, give you a little better ride but you don't want to go too low until you know the heaviest corner and end up under the recommended pressure.

RE: A good handheld shower head?

Had the OEM head break and replaced it with the Oxygenics. It felt better, as more pressure or flow, while using it yet I know there was less flow due to taking longer to rinse my hair while showering. The feel was good and that is what mattered.

azdryheat, I'll give it a try.

RE: Route Suggestions MI to AZ

I've routed several ways. Auto routing will usually take through and into the large cities, and use fastest routes. Right now have it for US31 from Fort Wayne to I-57, I-72 to US36 west to US-81S in Kansas to 56, 283, 54 to I-40 to Flagstaff. I have no problem plotting it but am looking for suggestions on ways maybe that worked for others but I had not thought of yet. I'm using S&T and the GS online stuff.

RE: RV Tires - affect on ride

Best idea is to weigh all four corners and then for each axle inflate to the recommended pressure for the heaviest tire weight. I found getting the right, not too high or too low, pressure does improve the ride, sway, bounce, and handling of the coach. Good luck in the search.

Route Suggestions MI to AZ

Every other year we visit a son near Phoenix and am looking for another route there and back. I know it will take approximately 4 days to get there, we are both retired, don't like I-10 and have done I-40 several times. This trip is in early April so we do not take any northern routes. We also are not in a real hurry so do not need the toll road through Kansas. I do try to miss Chicago, St. Louis, and Dallas but with the correct timing any of them can be done. Will be taking a 37' DP with toad. Any suggestions on route, what to see at the end of the day, or what to avoid is welcome. This is in the planning for Spring 2018.

RE: Upper Peninsula

Take the blue route. We avoid Chicago due to traffic at all costs. The UP is great, open, scenic, and you could spend a month just there. Enjoy the trip.

RE: Short 50 to 30 amp cord

I use a 50 to 30 dogbone in the electrical bay and then only use 30amp cords most of the time. My 50amp cords are coiled in a milk crate and kept stored until they are needed which is not too often.

RE: A friend to many here on RV.net has passed.....

A great loss to all.

RE: How long does the WH last?

The other problem you will run into is the fresh water tank capacity. If you are not on full hookups or at least with water you will use up your water supply rather quickly. If you are on a site with water available and do not have a sewer hookup then the grey water holding tank will be your limiting factor along with the fresh water availability. Good luck with managing the water useage. Let them use the RV and you go to the campground shower. They then cannot blame you for using all the water. Good luck and keep us informed.

RE: Need help with Khaleesi

Our Maltese was always comfortable in the truck when we had the TT. Now with the coach she was very nervous for the first couple trips but now after a couple thousand miles will go and sleep anywhere in the coach. Hopefully you will also find yours get more comfortable.

RE: Frustrated with different Coach-net plans

I do have Coach-net and have had them for years. Since you have a travel trailer "TOWABLE" then the category you want to be in is the TOWABLE. I have a motorhome and therefore am in the COACH grouping. Both will cover your other vehicles.

RE: Black and grey tank sensors

I always figure how long we can go based on experience. However, my gauges work very well and seldom plug up. I never use the backflush system except at the end of year and I'm going to winterize. The only treatment we use, never have had any smell, is from Unique - DigestIt. A natural treatment and it will dissolve all items keeping the system flowing well. OK now that I've said this it must be time for me to be attacked. Go for it.

RE: National Dolphin Dumping Question

If you can look at where the valve connects then the large pipe is black and the small pipe is grey
