RE: Hot Water Heater on electric or gas

I should rephrase the question to better explain . I will be running the Onan and both AC's this weekend at the track, would it be better to use the water heater on gas, or electric? Last year ( first time on Onan ) I switched it to gas, figured it would be less draw on the generator... I have plenty of genny, Onan 6.5 so Thta is not a worry...

RE: Smashed bugs are bugging me!

I found that doing the following works great for me : I start with a good coat of wax on the cap Then I hose down the cap at each stop for the night...and use a light brush..

Hot Water Heater on electric or gas

RE: Replacing pinstripping and graphics on RV

I inherited a "97" Holiday that was parked in the Florida sun with no wax.. I found a company out in Indiana that had all types of vinyl stripes and decals. I believe they would buy up stuff that folks were fazing out. I will try and remember the name, but just keep looking.. I also had a body shop paint match the ones I could not find, they sprayed , then clear coated .. ..

RE: Your Rig

So what is an acceptable weight difference on the axles? Front axle is at 4540lbs and the rear is 5260lbs. With my rear having 720 lbs more that the front is that overloading it to much? They are 7000# axles. My 5th wheel is already 12ft 8in tall as it sits. So I am a little concerned about more height. Sorry to keep bugging people for info. I am new to the RV scene and I don't know who to ask about weight to axle ratios. Tire rating compared to load. Your height will not change the highest point will be above the hitch. Your suspension travel is more limited as you are now. It "MAY" make it a little higher . .in his pic, the vent shroud is directly ahead of the axles . and the AC is right above, or directly behind the axles.. it really depends . .

RE: Allentown PA to Burlington VT

I probably would go I-81 to I-88 to I-87 and then 149-4-22A etc., mainly in interest of toll avoidance, but ford truck guy's route is also perfectly reasonable. Schodack Island State Park (a little south of Albany) is open for camping. I stayed there overnight rather late last year and it was fine for an overnight, though not an especially scenic state park campground. They do have a good many electric sites. I mentioned that route because I live south of Allentown and went to Burlington last summer. I pulled my 41' fifth wheel that route and it was a nice, scenic route... It was a great ride with beautiful scenery... Plenty of stops if need to..

RE: Lancaster Pa

You can stay here - Old mill stream. .it is right on RT 30, in the middle of Lancaster... There is a lot around to do... We usually stay out in Spring Gulch, but it is farther to get to all the stuff....

RE: Your Rig

A quick run across the scale will tell him the weight on each of the axles. So where is the best place to get my rig weighed? I called a couple of my local dealers and they didn't have a clue. They acted like it was an unusual request. Google search your area... or any truck stop close by should have one... maybe one up on an interstate near you ? . . .

RE: Allentown PA to Burlington VT

Anyone know of the best route to take? I will be traveling in about a week, so snow shouldn't be an issue. Hopefully a route that will have a campground open about halfway. Thanks! 78 East - 287 North - 87 - 149 - 4 - 22A

RE: Disk Brake Conversion

What pump did they install? I have a Hydrastar pump and will soon have a P3. What value resistor? Ron usually uses the BreakRite ..

RE: Your Rig

^^^^ What those 2 said..... In addition, I can't see very well, but it does not look like the axles are flipped ? Usually they sit a lot higher in the air, I MAY BE WRONG, as I really cannot see it well enough. That is a lot of additional weight on the rear 2 tires..

RE: Buy tires or not

The biggest issue here is that they sat in the same position on the sidewall for the past 3-4 years . . That's the worst thing for a tire.. I would swap them out before rolling down the road, consider it an insurance policy.. Tires are made to ROLL . . Not SIT. . .

RE: Awning Replacement - Easy/Hard?

Me and my BIL replaced his in no time after watching a YouTube video on how to replace one.. It was very straight forward, but would not recommend it as a 1 person job... we needed the 2 of us ( 1 on each arm ) and a 3rd as we were installing the new, that person was on the roof making sure the new favric slid cleanly into the grove.

RE: Unbelievable find

I have decided to let my good friend have it for what I got it for. He needs a truck for his heat and air business and its perfect for him. He has been there to help me alot since I had the stroke last year and besides he really needs it and I don't. I will still post pics when we go get it Wed. That's how 2 friends treat each other.... great job. . . .

RE: update

Thank you Joe for the info. Being full timers, we do have the luxury of traveling where ever we want. Growing up in the suburbs of Philly, we do know our way around. I'm going to have a long talk with this 2nd doctor who moved the pacemaker but failed to realize the lines were in the way before I make a final decision. Thank you again. Hugs, Di I wanted to give you a long overdue update on us. Dutch is recovering from his total ankle replacement surgery and it seems to be healing quite well. He should have the stitches removed next week and hopefully start PT. His main health issue that they have been working on since October still hasn't been diagnosed but we're still trying. They say, ankle wise, we should be able to leave AZ in about 4 weeks. Unfortunately, we won't be traveling far as I have to get back to S. Ca to have a 2nd heart Ablation as the 1st one didn't take and while they did re-pocket the pacemaker that was causing all my pain, they didn't see that they also had to move all the wires deeper inside as they are causing as much pain as the pacemaker. Not sure I have too much faith left in any doctors for me right now :(but I'll prevail. Our goal is to be able to get back on the road by end of May/beginning of June. Hugs, Di If you ever get back on the East Coast, try and look up Dr, Danial Frisch ..EP at Jefferson Heart . .he did both my ablation s, and my Pacemaker... the man has a gift ! Good Luck to you both....Happt Easter Joe I am in Bucks County . . Sounds like you know the area well. !
