RE: replaced wipers for $3.88 each

Costco.....Goodyear Premium....full range of sizes, no modifications needed. Each set comes with lots of connection adapters. Oh, and great price.

RE: Stabilizing jacks don't really stabilize much at all

Maybe some block under each one...the more you extend them the less they stabilize.

RE: Nascar Follies

....and why is Talladega even in the Chase or Playoffs or whatever they call it now? At least Dale Jr. was still alive at the end so that should keep some of the heat off Nascar.

RE: roof rafters

Cedar Creek and Northwood use all aluminum. Are you sure? I think Northwood (Arctic Fox) uses wood trusses. Not sure about Cedar Creek

RE: Salesmen...sheesh

I was a slow learner....first 3 trailers also cost me 3 new tow vehicles because of what the salesman told me I could tow....."sure, no problem." Reality: There was a Problem. Not enough payload.

RE: Weight Distribution Setup Question

Good advice from Terryallan above. If you can't adjust it out, you might need to get a bigger shank with more adjustment holes.... But, a little nose down is not all that bad. Nose up is not good....how does it tow...?

RE: Uber expensive pickups...how much of a trend ?

People want them and are buying them....so they make them. The walk around is to buy the same truck in a base trim version.

RE: Buying our first camper and have a AC question

That's a small trailer with no slide and few windows....so an 8K AC might be ok... Do they offer a bigger one as an option? If so get it. AC's in trailers are notoriously weak. The bigger the better.

RE: More Advice, please.

Ridiculous.....do not deal with this salesman anymore at all. (distribution hitch cuts the tongue weight in half).....complete baloney. Tongue weight is tongue weight and it goes on the tow vehicle...ALL OF IT.

RE: Buying Advice

The trailer you asked about in your later post......LINK Would be a much better fit for your Sequoia...and it will allow you and your family to get your feet wet in RVing. If it is in good shape I'd consider it, certainly over the first one you asked about.

RE: Replacing the Stove/Oven

Fresh baked, hot cinnamon rolls on a wet northwest morning at the beach... We are keeping our oven. (and using it to store pots and pans.) win, win.

RE: Buying Advice

Hello and welcome to the Forum. If I am correct your Toyota has a towing capacity of 7100 lbs. (with one passenger and no gear). The trailer you are considering has a GVWR of 7400+ lbs... I didn't check the payload of your Toyota but you could be looking at a loaded hitch weight of 1000 lbs or more so that may be a big problem also for you once you load up the family and your gear. These are issues you should consider before you sign....and if you do sign do not let them snicker you into the $2000 paint protection package...It's a complete rip off. Good luck with you choice. You are being wise by researching first. Don't give up on it. Camping/RVing is a great family activity and adventure.

RE: Replacing fridge vent cover

Buy the Decor, cover the screws and then use the rest on something else on the roof that looks suspicious.

RE: Anti-freeze in fresh water tank

I'm a big proponent of reading and following manuals....but this advice maybe not so much. No way am I putting 5 gallons of anti-freeze anywhere in our RV.. (but, I'm not familiar with your RV or how it is set up and plumbed.)

RE: Forum to discuss banking experiences?

We stay mostly west of the Rockies also. We use B of A for our primary checking mostly because they are everywhere so we can get cash if needed while traveling (ATM's) I have noticed no adds on their website when we log into our account. Don't often talk to anyone so can't speak to their customer service. Savings are kept elsewhere for much higher interest.

RE: T Mobil phone service

We switched from Verizon to T-Mobile because they offered a really good deal.....We switched back to Verizon 2 days later. T-Mobile had terrible service (or none at all) where we often go on the Washington coast....We always got at least 2 bars with Verizon in the same place.
