RE: Quality Outdoor Travel Recliner

We have a couple of LaFuma recliners..bought them way back when. Expensive, but really good. LaFuma was the original zero gravity chair. There are many similar ones out there...a lot less expensive and probably just as good.

RE: Bristol Baby

...snip... Tony Stewart 10 years ago when he was the young gun with the bad mouth and hot temper when things went bad. ..and Tony is still this way. (mouth and temper) He and Kyle remind me so much of each other. Both with gifted talent and both with personality flaws. Difference has been that Tony has won championships - Kyle still working on it.

RE: Another Question

Just keep in mind that you are most likely going to need to dump about once a week or even more often depending on how much water you use...showers, washing dishes, etc. As posted by 2oldman above, most tanks are in the 40 gal. range. The black tank will last much longer than the gray tank(s). I think it will be hard (not impossible) to Full Time long term by just boondocking. Anyway, good luck with your upcoming adventure.

RE: Trailer Brakes -- At What Size/Weight

Travel trailers are required to have a, "brake away," system...to stop it if it comes un-connected from the tow vehicle while underway. To have this system, the trailer needs brakes and a battery to operate these brakes. Not true everywhere. I will need to check again but it was if it was required to have brakes then the emergency brake was also required. I know for a fact that most open two place trailers have no brakes. Where is it not "true?" ....and we were talking about travel trailers not, "open two place trailers."

RE: Can we expect these shenanigans?

Can you say KOA.. We were charged a required, "resort fee," on top of the nightly rate... The resort fee included admission to the "bouncy room" and a pancake breakfast. We wanted neither and but they wouldn't let us opt. out.

RE: Battery charge in storage?

Battery Tender....google it...Amazon, local auto parts outfit, etc. 4 stage (float) so it will safely maintain your batts long term without damage.

RE: how do you get TT cabinets off?

My bet is that they were installed (screwed) from the backside before the outside walls where put on.

RE: shore power in campgrounds

Was your air conditioner working ok? How many devices did you have running at the same time...A/C, water heater, maybe microwave, etc.?

RE: RESOLVED: Any plumbing help on here

If you decide to replace it, no tools are needed. Cut out the old valve and use SharkBite fittings to install a new valve. Home Depot, Lowe's.

RE: Bitdefender anti-virus

Not unusual...Sirius XM Radio does the same thing..(automatic renewal unless you opt out.) many others also do this. I use Bitdefender, but the free version. Highly rated an works great. Does everything necessary, but no un-needed bells and whistles.

RE: Sail Switch or Something Else?

Sure sounds like a sail switch sticking (periodically) to me. That's where I would start.

RE: So all of you 1500 haters

Hate to break it to you, but the 3500 had nothing to do with what you saw. (" watched it as it SWAYED, wiggled, wondered around on the road, and nearly went in the ditch") Anyway, glad you are happy with your truck and that it works good for you.

RE: Bristol Baby

Kyles (racing attitude and personality) is part of what makes him so good....It's also his down fall and what makes him so bad.

RE: WD hitch

30 footer with probably about a 1000 lbs of tongue weight...I'd most certainly be using a WD hitch.. Probably, at that weight, you are getting close to your receivers' max rating without WD.

RE: Bucket List trip

We will have 6 days total camping time plus driving days. I plan to drive west for 2 or 3 days then the misses will fly out to meet me for the 6 days then she will have to fly back home while I make the drive.... It's suppose to be a vacation...this sounds more like work to me. I'd re-plan your plan and trim it down some. Anyway, whatever you decide to do, enjoy the trip.
