RE: Garmin RV 760LMT GPS pros/cons?

Save yourself a lot of headaches and time----Just call the Garmin Tech support. These folks are outstanding and will walk you right through the issues. An additional plus, all the tech people speak english:) they don't outsource their tech support:)

RE: Slide out depths

Just depends on the model and the manufacture. Larger RV's tend to have deeper slides.

RE: Amp

Look at your electrical cord, large connector = 50 amps, small connector= 30 amps. I would think this info would be in your owner's mannual or go online or call the dealer that sells your trailer.

RE: Hirearchy

Class A folks--- I think you are confusing type of RV's people drive and kinds of people that RV!!! I think we all need to look at our expectations of what the world of RVers should be like. The RV world and all the RVers is no different than any other world, i.e our jobs, our church, stores, politics, police, educators etc etc etc-----there will always be a small minority of unfriendly, unhappy, obnoxious, negative people in each of these worlds!!!

RE: Hirearchy

There was a post on this about a month ago... The rv " pecking order " No, I don't believe what you experienced is a common theme. There are always going to be " those " kind of people, no matter what they are camping in. Don't stoop to their level, and pay them no mind. You run across it every day in the city and probably don't even notice it. Life is too short to let them affect your attitude. Just have fun and enjoy your camping experience. The best thing you can do is say Hi and give them a big smile. If they choose not to reciprocate, that is their hangup, not yours. And they could just be plain unhappy people. Vrai? X2 98% of all RVers are open and friendly:) The other 2% are few and far in between and they would be same in any activity in the world. You might enjoy the social connections when you join various RV groups, i.e. Heartland, Elks RV clubs , Escapees. Almost every brand of RV rig has a RV club that takes various RV trips throughout the year.

RE: Sand and debris in water lines

We seem to always get sand and stuff in my lines and clogging the faucets diffuser or the toilet line screen. We do use a regular carbon filter, (the blue one from Walmart) but this does not seem to stop the sand. How do you all keep the lines from getting clogged? Maybe it is the southern campgrounds? You need to invest in better water filters.

RE: EAZ lift

I have difficulty using an EAZ lift weight distribution hitch to connect my travel trailer and truck. To help in connecting the torsion bars, the truck/trailer connection should be raised about 3" using the jack on the trailer. The problem is I have to raise the hitch 6 or more inches. What am I doing wrong? Check the angle of the ball hitch, does it point slightly down toward the ground, mabey 15 to 20 degrees???? Or just take it in to a reputable RV shop (I know, that is an oxymoron) and have set up your whole hitch system.

RE: Tire replacement on Voltage 3200

I would give the Ribs a good hard look. The Marathons have a long history of giving mediocre service..... or so I have read. X2 Never heard of one positive story about Marathon tires, only negative ones:(
djgarcia 08/11/14 08:03pm Toy Haulers
RE: Tire replacement on Voltage 3200

Marathons are definitely not an option for a heavy trailer. You would be better off getting the G614s and only inflating them to 80 psi. They will still have the same load rating as any of the E tires mentioned and they are a lot tougher tire. X2 for G614 tires

RE: Tire replacement on Voltage 3200

LT tires:) get the highest rated tires that will fit and meet your rim specs. If you don't already have GS Emergency Road Side service, look into it.

RE: Water filter

Poke around this site. This guy is an RVer and does seminars. We have a whole house filter that was standard equip in our rig. I get my replacement cartridges from him. www.rvwaterfilterstore.com/ABFiltration.htmRV Water Filter Store....HERE X2 I use to use the Wall Mart filters but after switching to a double canister from rvwaterfilter, the difference is night and day. The water is safer and better tasting to drink when I am on the road.

RE: Audio Books

DW has books on her tablet, but the volume wasn't loud enough to hear in truck. We stopped at Wally's and got one of these which works great in the truck or at home. I know we didn't pay this much for it, so there must be other models. X2 I also hook it up to my TV in the 5th. wheel. I bought a 10 ft. cord and then place the speakers right next to my recliner. This allows me to watch TV late at night without disturbing the rest of the family.

RE: tires again... two sizes, unusual but does it matter?

Personally I want all the tires to be the same size. Tire issues are one of the most frequent problems most RVers have to deal with. If finanically possible, I would also switch to 15 inch rims with "E" rated tires. For me, I would rather have a little over kill margin of safety as opposed to using tires that are at their maximum capacity of weight load.

RE: Blowing tires

Tires:( After you get the axel checked, consider going to a tire with a higher load rating. If you use "C" , go up to an "E" rated tire. If possible go to a 16 inch rim.

RE: Garmin RV 760LMT GPS pros/cons?

Garmin- Using the settings "find the quickest route" is not necessarly the best choice to choose when towing a trailer:(

RE: Bringing dog to Yosemite with the family/where to go?

Due to the many fires in northern Ca, You may want to call ahead and check for road closures around Yosemite. X2

RE: Full time Travel nursing

I'll spare you true breed jargon but supply some cold hard facts: Pit bulls make up 6 percent of the dog population in Canada and the US, but they are responsible for 68 percent of dog attacks and 52 percent of dog-related deaths from 1982 to 2009, TIME Magazine reported. This is the exact reason some insurance companies will not take a chance and allow them in the campground. Insurance companies care about reducing or eliminating risk, and paying out on claims. That is how they make their profit. Of course, not EVERY pit is trouble. If you want to take a chance, carry a large insurance liability policy and go for it. Joe, read the whole post. Now that you have provided some statistics. My question is still unanswered. Is there anyone out there fulltiming with a pitbull in those states I mentioned? I do not have a dog! In 30 yrs of RVing about 4 to 6 months a year from Maine to Calif. I have never personally seen a RVer with a pit bull. All kinds of other breeds of dogs but not Pit bulls for whats thats worth.
