RE: 2005 Thor Wanderer. Dealer's Extras?

This guy is trying to skin you and hang you out to dry. And, when he tells you that you need a spare $75.00 louvered water heater plug, tell his to forget that too.

RE: Winterizeing air pressure

80 psi is too high...and unnecessary. Go with about 45psi. It will do the job very nicely. I have been using 45psi for well over 20 years.

RE: New TT, damaged power awning

I was taught at an early age. "You have to pay for your mistakes." Leaving the awning out un-tilted in the rain is an honest mistake and regrettable and it happens..... Like everything else, owning an RV has a "learning" element. You can advise him, you can assist him, but have his deal with it. Aside: I like our power Travel-r awning. It has shocks and a self dumping feature. It can also be tilted.

RE: Anyone see anything wrong with this picture?

We have parked our Subaru right up close to our TT to block anyone from possibly hooking up to it and stealing it. Doesn't look like these two are actually hooked up.

RE: Dumping Black Tank

....and all of the previous editions of this have been locked/deleted because they immediately became POLITICAL. I come here to the Forum to get away from the "political."

RE: Axle issue

Welcome to the Forum: Others are correct, the axles are within specs. Just thinking... As for the brake shoe issue - check you break controller for proper adjustment and make sure that your break-away pin was not pulled.

RE: What would you do differently "next time"?

My "next time" advice is: Buy a tow vehicle that will handle our next 2 (bigger and heavier) trailers.

RE: How do you define too expensive?

. KOA can be a bit more but they usually offer quiet a bit more. May not be worth it if you don't have kids. Good point...we don't use the "bouncy room" or the video arcade....so it just depends on what one is looking for. We like larger sites with more space between us and our neighbor, and we look for location. Most WA and OR state parks are in prime 'natural' settings..Beach, river, lake front, etc.

RE: How do you define too expensive?

Interesting discussion and question: Our experience. Oregon State Park: Ft. Stevens. $30 per night summer rate. KOA: literally right across the street $60+ per night. Both full hook-ups. Both similar sites except most state park sites are roomier. Note: State Parks are also subsidized by tax payer and I think in Oregon by lottery revenue.

RE: trouble lining up your hitch?

From their website: A Reel-Quik Hitch has a Class III towing capacity of 6,000 pounds for gross trailer weight, and 600 pounds for tongue weight. Most of us have a lot more than 600 lbs of tongue weight.

RE: What would you do??

I know how I feel and what I do when I loose faith and confidence in something...I get rid of it. Sounds like you are bothered/concerned about more than the floor with this rig. I agree with others - move on. But, it's not my money.

RE: Undercarriage Waste Tote Storage.....Lots of pictures

Absolutely professional and first rate: Probably could manufacturer and market something like that.

RE: Rubber Roof

All depends on how it has been maintained and how the rig has been stored. Roofs used and stored in the southwest don't do as well as those in more northern climates with less intense sun. But, 12 years is getting on down there. But, our last trailer was 12 when we sold it and the roof was still very good. .....all depends.

RE: Before you sign the papers...

Absolutely....isn't that way it's done when working a deal for a new RV?....negotiate, negotiate, negotiate...

RE: Packing

First of all...since you are a new member - are you new to RV'ing? Reason I ask is have you had a problem with stuff breaking or are you just anticipating this and planning ahead? We have very few if any problems with stuff breaking...except maybe stuff shifting in the frig and falling over from time to time.

RE: Hot Shower

Does the Mrs. have long hair....shampoo, lots of suds to rinse, then conditioner and rinse again? 6 gal. hot water tank....problem.

RE: Topper while pulling TT help MPG?

We gave up on "good mileage" when towing...not going to happen. We have a topper because it protects the stuff in the bed of our truck, like the bikes, etc.
