RE: What if...

So buy that F150 Eco that you want. But, make sure you order it with the HD towing package and especially the HD Payload option. Also, nice looking trailer, but no recliner(s). They sure are nice.

RE: Blank Tank Ripper Comes To Elkmont

Normally these morons are bare footed and are eating a sandwich during the whole process.

RE: Who's idea was it?

downtheroad....how and what did you strap the post to? Would it be possible to share a few more pics of your awesome installation? Thank you for the idea. Looks great! I used industrial strength zip ties..from Home Depot. (like the ones used as handcuffs). I used about 8-10 of them and strapped the fence post to a frame cross member near the dump valve. The zip ties have a 300 lb each rating. The latches are spring latches secured with short pop rivets.

RE: Who's idea was it?

I got the basic idea here...the design variations have evolved over time. Here is mine...some of it original, some of it borrowed. Bottom line, it's a great mod no matter how you modify the basic idea to fit your needs. http://i162.photobucket.com/albums/t280/oilchange/RV%20Tech/resizedsewerstorage_zpsfb84441a.jpg width=500

RE: Water Shut Off ?

Here is our set up...always on if we are at the trailer (night or day). If we leave we shut it off. http://i162.photobucket.com/albums/t280/oilchange/RV%20Tech/regulator_zpsafc17081.jpg width=500

RE: My beloved Komfort brand is no more :(

Our Komfort was built in Clackamus Oregon.. Absolutely the best built trailer not even close to the 3 previous ones we owned. Sad to hear...I guess IF (and it's not going to happen) we were to buy another TT, we would look to Arctic Fox now that Komfort is gone.

RE: New desktop needed- any deals?

Costco. 90 day return policy no questions asked. Times two. Lots of choices, all are very decent to excellent, very competitive pricing (if not the best), and the best return policy on the planet.

RE: Black tank chemicals

Probably not any any easier...but I guess you could climb up on the roof and add them through the vent stack.... (I know, I know...but just a thought even if it is a weak one....:S

RE: Is a Tundra out of the Question

Problem is that the Tundra has a low payload. You are looking at only about 425 lbs left for gear, hitch, passengers, stuff in the bed of the truck etc. GVWR of trailer 7600 lbs gives you a hitch weight of about 980 lbs. ^This counts against your trucks payload of 1410 lbs. Disregard ANY dry weights for the trailer..they are not realistic and no body camps in a "dry" trailer.

RE: Newport, OR to Portland

We love the Oregon Coast and spend 3 months a year camping on and wandering up and down it. If you aren't in a hurry...drive all the way up to the Columbia at Astoria and take Hwy 30 along the river to Portland.

RE: Accidentally Put gas in my diesel HELP

No chance would I even start it. Have it towed and have the tank drained and cleaned...Ya, it will cost you, but it will be chump change in comparison to the cost of a new or rebuilt motor. Just not worth it.

RE: 'Cousin' Carl to Leave RFR at End of Season

My bet (I called it months ago) is that Carl will go to Gibbs with Subway as a primary. Toyota today (Brickyard) 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. Congrats to the 24. 5th win at the Brick. Best all time.

RE: Surprise for hubby, help with numbers.

Not great in my opinion. She is going to have +- 800 lbs of tongue weight when the trailer is fully trip ready loaded. That only leaves about 600 lbs or less of PAYLOAD left for all the stuff, passengers, gear, etc that will be in the truck. I guess it's do-able, but without much margin.

RE: Unclog Drain??

Probably a hair clog. Start with a Zip-It Drain Cleaner or similar. Available lots of places...Walmart, Home Depot, etc. SEE it Here...LINK

RE: When do I change the oil?

I follow the monitor or go 1 year...which ever comes first. I let it get around 20% sometimes a little less and then change. It's usually about 7-8K miles. Full synthetic here. ("soap")....:h

RE: What do you have in your tool box

I have a shop full of tools at home...for the RV - traveling, ease of storage, ease of access, etc. I have one of these. Unless I'm going to completely dis-assemble and rebuild our Duramax diesel this has been more than adequate while on the road. http://mjsgoodiesandstuff.com/images/ToolKit-Professional.jpg width=500

I didn't know they had any lakes or places to fish in Minnesota. Is this something new? (sorry, I couldn't resist.)

RE: Broken off anode blues!

Posters above are correct. Here is what a new rod looks like and one that you have that is used up. As Home Skillet posted, flush out the old anode rode "gunk" and put a new one in. Use a couple of wraps of Teflon tape on the threads. http://www.aricoplumbing.com/waterheater/images/anode-rod-compare.jpg

RE: sewer hook ups

Fittings are fairly standard (maybe). We have a 15 foot hose and an extra 10 footer as an extension if needed. Unless you are camping on the moon...sewer hose stuff is pretty much available everywhere if you find you don't have what you need. Some campgrounds (county ordinances)require that the hose be able to be sealed where it connects to the camp sewer pipe... Have a good trip. The sewer thing is all part of the adventure.
