RE: Awning Deflappers

Those things are so inexpensive to buy I can't see why anyone would want to make their own or re-invent the wheel. Barney x2 -- I got the deluxe version and thin I paid $14.00 a pair??? Maybe $19.00

RE: Stolen Camper - Please share!

I will be up and down 95 from PA to FL in the next week or so... I will keep my eyes open for it.... I am sure the plate is gone by now , so is there a VIN # you can share ?? Or maybe just the last 4/5 digits . .this may help eliminate the false accusations of a poor camping family who just purchased the same rig..... I hope it turns out good god you and your family....

RE: awning

You get what you pay for... And I hope you did not pay too much for that leaky awning!!!!!! There is no way I would accept that answer if ... Yes I may be 100% wrong... But in the 25+ years of camping , and a couple awning replacements. , I have never had a leak... Unless I caused if ! :B

RE: Rattle in truck

Since it is happening unloaded and you're talking about a 2015 model, sounds like a trip to the dealer is in order. The stock tires should not be causing vibration.X2. It's under warranty - let the dealer take care of it. X3-- if my 2015 starts rattling , that's the first stop I am making.... I did not pay that much money to have rattles.... There are so many variables , that makes it almost impossible to guess at it...

RE: RV Discount Supplies

While in Disney two years ago I realized that my capture plate need to be replaced... I called PPL and explained that I was leaving in 3 days and was not comfortable with the one I had... They took the order , shipped it out that day , It was delivered to the front desk at the campground in 2 days... All I paid was the cost of the plate and regular ground shipping...

RE: tire question

The mileage is not the issue... Its the steel cords inside.. sitting in the same position most of the 6 years . . If it were me , I would be replacing them ASAP . . .While your at it , go up from a D to an E or maybe a G . .piece of mind

RE: Question: PA tunnels

The ONLY PA tunnel I know that will not allow RV (with propane) is on the North East extension...( RT 476) The North South Version of the PA Pike.. I have taken 2-3 trips from Eastern PA to Indiana all on the turnpike without having to exit.. The tunnel in question is between the Lehigh Valley exit and the Mahoning Valley exit...

RE: removing storage pods on roof...fixing holes???

I suggest you fill the holes with sealant and then use Eternobond tape over all the holes . .

RE: Companies That Stand Behind Their Products

In 2006 I bought a Bed-Rug bed liner for my new Dodge. I like it because it's good on my knees and is attractive. Now, I really like it because UV has attacked the material and to my surprise the company is going to replace it. They even paid for shipping of the old one back to them. It has a lifetime warranty and they honor it. I have no affiliation with Bed-Rug. What other companies have you had good experience with that honor warranties? My experience has not been very good in this area most of the time. This was good to see... I just had a Bed Rug installed in my new truck...

RE: Slingbox

I use Slingbox both on my laptop,, and purchased the app for my IPad...I have the connector cables that allow me to watch the content from my IPad on any TV with an HDMI cable... It is only as good as your signal , weather its public wifi , or your own bandwidth.. I use it everywhere I have signal .. As a matter of fact , I am in the office right now and watching GMA on my desktop with slingbox . . you have unlimited DATA so you can watch the HD version,,, when I am on my mifi jetpack , I watch regular to save data

RE: Going into North Myrtle Beach from 95 North

This is our usual route... But I hate the 17 traffic closer to Murrells Inlet and north.... That's why I thought of staying on 95 longer... That is why I avoid Myrtle Beach as much as possible, especially from April to October. Where in MB are you headed as that does make a difference? Will be at M.B.T.P. Been going the past 25 years the same week or 2 every year... It has changed big time~!!! I was not sure if it was worth looking into running east from 95 instead of north on 17 . . Once close I will hop on 31/22 to the Super Wally world . .

RE: Going into North Myrtle Beach from 95 North

It depends on I95 traffic. If it is moving along, stay on it as long as possible. If it is slow going, get off and take the backroads, at least for a few miles around the traffic jam. Just an FYI, from exit 33 to Santee you can jump on Hwy 15. From Santee north to Exit 134, you can jump on Hwy 301. Hwy 501 is heavier traffic but dual lane road. Hwy 378 is a nice road through some pretty sections but single lane road. Another option if you have the time is to jump off on Hwy 17 taking it up to through Charleston and Georgetown. Will be a bit longer, but much nicer now that the have the section from Beaufort to Jacksonboro dualed. If you want to go this route, split the trip up into two days by staying at the Oaks CG south of Charleston. This is our usual route... But I hate the 17 traffic closer to Murrells Inlet and north.... That's why I thought of staying on 95 longer...

Going into North Myrtle Beach from 95 North

I posted a question a few weeks back about going from FLA. to North Myrtle Beach... The answers were somewhat divided with some stating 95N to Florence and 501 into 22... and the other half taking 378-501-31-22 On mapquest its only showing a difference of 13 miles , but almost 2 hours LONGER taking 378 ?? Can any of you who take either tell me the good-bad-and ugly of either way ? On edit - - I will be traveling from Florida UP 95 North

RE: New guy in need of assistance

I assume, just like nc hauler, that grandpa did not go to the trouble of taking out the mounting plates from underneath the bed. But I know what I get for assuming! :B...I've sold a couple of trucks and kept my rails and frame brackets if they could be used on the next truck I purchased, but they're a real pain to remove, thus the reason I assumed the frame mounting brackets would still be in place, but again...it is an assumption...:) That's how I read it also... BUT , just ask my kids , I've been know to be wrong!! :B

RE: New guy in need of assistance

I hope he left the mounting plates on the frame of the truck , they are NOT pictured... If so , it is nothing different than an erector set on steroids... Unless I am reading wrong ( very good chance) you are taking the truck that previously had the same rails in it,?? If its a new install , that's a whole different ballgame. There are a ton of folks on here that do it them selves , I for one had mine installed by the local dealer.. It was some time ago , but I believe I was charged around $350.00-$400.00 for the install ??????

RE: Swaying to the music

I had a TT with the same issues..... I placed 2 friction bars on the hitch and that helped... Then I removed the bikes and it all went away.. TOO much tail weight with not enough tongue weight , is what it sounds to me...

RE: Go where the trucks go

The first time I visited our new office in Bethpage NY I went home a different way then getting there...That involved the Southern States Parkway and Belt Parkway... As soon as I got on , my heart dropped as there was a 10' bridge staring me down ( My camper is 13'5")... Then a sense of relief as I had my small truck and no camper...I know how you felt.!!
