RE: So, just how "hazardous" can a tank full of poo be?

My immune system is compromised..... and I still do as most on here - black tank first... followed by flush... and then grey till clean... I keep a box of disposable gloves in the basement to use during that process...I don't eat a sandwich during... nor do I wear flip flops ! :B..

RE: Battery question

OP at 7:20 am, he has a 5th wheel w/ no generator, and doesn't know how to run a tv. 1 1/4 hrs later, 8:35, he has a 750 watt generator. I don't know how he had time to read a few posts, and go out and buy a 750 watt junk generator, and post back here, all in an hr and 15 minutes. I'm impressed. I am thinking it's called ONLINE shopping..... Just my guess... And by the way , I hope I'm not anywhere close to that $750 7000'watt bid generator at night...

RE: Battery question

You can't ... unless you get an inverter... That inverter will run off the batteries but has limitations.. That is where I will refer to the professionals on here... They will chime in soon and answer you far better than I ever could . .

RE: Fort Wilderness route to Key Largo

Just a head's up about the toll roads - I camped near Fort Wilderness in Clermont, FL. We followed the GPS and took toll roads to Miami where we stopped for a couple of nights and then toll roads again into Key West. Anyway, it was like $35 with my truck and fifth wheel for one way. We came back a different way and stayed on I-95. Where did you stay in the Miami area??

RE: Problems with buying 3-1/2 hours away

So , is anyone using a non selling dealer for warranty work?

RE: Problems with buying 3-1/2 hours away

can you buy from the 3 1/2 hours away and then have warranty service done at a closer shop? can't the closer one match? The closer dealer will not match it...,my current KZ product has been very good , and very minimal trips to dealer.. KZ has also been a dream to work with to this point... Terryallen - he is in the same state as me.... Both in PA.

RE: Problems with buying 3-1/2 hours away

If this is for a new unit then I would buy closer. The avg. RV needs at least a few things fixed and I wouldn't drive that far. But if you don't mind then why not. OTOH if it was a used unit then I would go for it if it was something I really liked. It is new.. Factory order.. He did say that they work very closely with the guy west... I wonder if I could service at the other place without too much issues?..

Problems with buying 3-1/2 hours away

I don't think I'm missing anything here.... Looking to possibly upgrade the 5'r and been working with a guy about 3-1/2 hrs away.. Met him a few times before , almost got our recent trailer from him 7years ago... I wanted to buy from him last time , but the guy 1 hr away matched the number , so we did that... Hated his service.... KZ has always told us that the 3-1/2 hr dealer is one of their best in the country... Been telling us that since we visited the plant a few years ago... I see no issues , am I missing something?? The are 3 dealers near me... 1 is 1hr 15 mins west... 1 is 1hr 15 mins south/west.. And he is 3-1/2 hrs north ...

RE: Big Barrel Country Music Festival Dover

Funny you mention that gcloss, I gave Dover a thought for a minute, and then remembered pictures I saw of Taste of Country which I wanted to go but changed my mind last minute. I guess I'm getting too old for that scene also, not what I prefer with the wife and family. Been thinking of Nashville myself. How long is the ride from NY? Security is the main reason for giving up on Taste of Country, far too many drunken underage kids fighting and causing problems. The second reason is the cost is out of sight. While I live on Long Island I keep my TT in Gardiner NY. We will be leaving for Nashville from Gardiner heading down the NYS Thruway to I-287 then I-78 out to I-81 to I-40 straight through to Nashville. Google maps tells me it is about 925 miles one-way from Gardiner. We plan on 2-3 day out to Nashville. On the way back we have reservations in Pigeon Forge area for 5 days. I figure 1 day to Pigeon Forge and then 1-2 days from Pigeon Forge back to Gardiner. We have been talking about doing this also...fill us in once you return ,, the good..bad..ugly.. Of the camping

RE: Big Barrel Country Music Festival Dover

I have seen Art Mann walking around those fire fly and stagecoach concerts.. What a scene, I guess that maybe I am just getting old.... I did however think about it for a few seconds because of the big names performing......

RE: A funny thing happen last night

So.... how did you like the Durango 380FL ??? It was nice,,, not exactly what we want.. But nice

A funny thing happen last night

We took a ride over to Family Camping Outlet in Pottstown PA to take a look at the new Durango Gold model 380FL.. Before taking the ride , I called and verified they had it on the lot . We arrived and went inside asking for the sales woman I spoke to earlier... After brief introductions , she went to say.... We need to discuss trucks before showing you that particular model...I see you have a F-150.... It was refreshing to see a company want to do the right thing.....

RE: frozen sewer hose and water line

^^^^^^^ NOW That would have been a real BIG poopsicle !!!!

RE: frozen sewer hose and water line

I haven't had water all day because my line must have froze and so after lugging jugs of water back and forth in order to do dishes I notice my sewer hose is now frozen. Any advice on what to do would be greatly appreciated. WHY are you leaving your black tank sewer blade OPEN? Whether you are just RV'ing or 'living' in your RV you leave the black tank closed. Let it fill to 3/4 and then dump. The reason your sewer hose is frozen is because there is waste just sitting it in, now frozen. Waste needs WATER to move. That also means there is most likely a mountain of poop in your black tank also. Leave black tank closed when 3/4 fill dump. That water takes all of it out and completely down the sewer hookup. NOTHING should be in your sewer lines. Frozen water line: In freezing temps you need to: Disconnect water hose from spigot and your RV. then Drain the water hose. That way come morning when the temps rise you just reconnect the hose and you are back in business. Where did the op say the black tank valve is open? OP, is it your hose that is froze up, water spiqot or is it froze inside the camper. If in camper, you can turn furnace up or put a heater in basement to help it warm up faster. As far as the sewer hose, make sure you have a good drop angle from camper to sewer outlet. To unthaw, put hot water down hose to thaw out. The OP stated that his sewer hose is now froze.. The assumption was made that the black valve was left open.,. I think if I were camping in this cold , I would assure that my sewer tube had proper pitch to drain... The ONLY ways his sewer tube froze would be that a valve was left open ,AND-OR improper drainage on the sewer tube.. I would get the heaters and or hair dryer out.. I too would be concerned to move it too much while froze.....
