RE: House Batteries

We have a 96 Damon Intruder that we never take the batteries out of because in the winter we fire it up and take it to Walmart to shop.Its a good idea to start it up and run it around a little bit. Keeps the oil and grease mixed good on the metal parts and gives the motor and transmission seals some lube. Remember " Beware of old rv's with low mileage."Motors and transmission were made to work and not lay idle.

RE: Running 2 a/c's

If it is stalling and not throwing a breaker, the genset needs help- a tuneup, carb cleaning, new fuel filter, decarboning, clean the spark arrestor,etc. It should be able to keep running to supply enough current to trip the output breakers. Sounds good thanks Chris

RE: Running 2 a/c's

Unpopular comment coming: Presumably you're boondocking and want to run 2 AC's? Perhaps you need to seek an alternate hobby/lifestyle. The owners manual says it can be done on genny only. Why would it say that when presumably it can be done.. Think I'll take it in for a tune up. That probably won't work either. No big deal since we seldom use it. Just was wondering why it won't do what its supposed to do..Thanks for trying

Running 2 a/c's

I have a 5000 watt Koehler gen. that is supposed to be able to run 2 (13000 btu a/c's at the same time. But when I try it drags the genny down all the way and it stalls. I have tried turning on one at a time but no luck. Other than that the gen. works just fine.. Any ideas ?

RE: Tire Recommendation

I like Hankook. I have about 12,000 on mine and like them. Will know more after winter and see how they do on snow. Very aggressiive tread. I have a 2008 F250. I changed my tires out at 50,000 miles. My PU came with Goodyear. X-2 on Hankooks

RE: Refilling propane tanks

Never heard of such a thing..I've been Rv'ing for over 25 years and never had a problem like this.

RE: Generator won't stay running.

Also most generators hate old stale gas. Had the same problem one time going through Vegas in the summer (104 deg) couldn't get the gen. to run after about 3 tanks of fresh fuel it ran like a new one. And yes I had an additive in it but the gas was still a year old.Sometimes fresh gas will fix them right up. So if your having trouble with your genny try it, it may just fix the running problem....Stabil works for about 6 months after that your just running on luck...

RE: Flat Towing

Smart Car. Its light and you and your rv won't even know its back there.Of course you have to be ready to get lots of stares.. If you don't like attention then don't get one..

RE: Bad Customer Service

Most rv and car lots are taking that approach now days. They realize people don't want high pressure from the sales staff..When you decide to buy come into the sales room and ask for a salesman I'm sure they will be happy to serve you. Salesmen realized some time ago people want to be left alone and make up their own mind and not be "bugged". Whole new world isn't it....

RE: Are We Allowed to have a gun in an RV for protection?

Don't forget Canada if you're heading north. They have a No gun policy, even if locked in a gun safe. You will be arrested if found with a firearm regardless of type. They even arrested an American tourist that got on the wrong road and just tried to make a U-turn on the Canadian side of the border. Bear pepper spray is a great idea, 30'-50' range, you can sweep a large area in a fraction of a second, and if you make a mistake it's non fatal. When you are found in Canada with out the proper paper work, you deserve what you get. The rest of your message is BS and a rant of highest ignorance. I don't think so the message is right on. Your in a world of trouble if you get caught with a gun in Canada and you can take that to the bank..

RE: Anyone pulled over by CHP?

I know from experience that if you are pulled over for speeding or any other infraction of the law. You WILL get a ticket and the fine will be substantial..CHP cuts you no slack..

RE: Are We Allowed to have a gun in an RV for protection?

Guns come with responsibilities be safe with it and never give reason for any LEO to search your trailer, require a legal warrant to search. Never display it with out reason. keep it out of sight, and out of reach of children. Never take a life over material things only when you or your family's lives are in danger. And remember if you have to shoot someone you will be poor for the rest of your life..(lawyers)

RE: What is your toad of choice?

SMART CAR. Your rv won't even know its back there. Gas mileage stays the same. They only weigh a little over 1800 lbs. But folks are looking at you like you came from another planet. Its our escape pod.."Beam me up scotty"

RE: TV Antenna

I know this is said over and over, but I see it mentioned here again.. There is no such thing as an HD antenna, nor one that works better on HD. Antennas are generic devices that pick up whatever goes by the antenna. The Batwing is the best, followed by the Jack. If you have an omni-directional on your RV, replace it now and you will be thankful you did later. And you can take this advise "to the bank" Really.....

RE: Max - New Dachshund Foster!

If you keep a dachshund long enough they will develop bad backs. We had 2 and when they got to about 10 yrs old. We had them in the vets office with bad backs the bill for a back operation is about 3500.00 Most people can't afford that so we had the dogs put down..This was very hard on us since dachshunds are very lovable and my wife and I cried when they were gone. Because this is so hard on a person we decided not to have anymore animals especially doxies..Think long and hard before you buy one..And if you buy a puppy look forward to having your rugs ruined, They do not take good to house training. They do what they want when they want. But they sure are funny characters. We used to laugh even when they were asleep.
