RE: just purchased fuel milage horrible

I just went out and pulled the oil dipstick.. right on the full mark and no gas odor or taste either!! no signs of a fuel leak anywhere i looked for that when we got it home.. That's a new one, don't think I've ever heard of a taste test for gasoline. :) One time I stopped at a GMC dealership with a Pontiac. The transmission was not shifting properly. The mechanic pulled the transmission dipstick and tasted the fluid. He said there was no problem with the fluid. He found the shifter linkage was the problem. I wouldn't have believed it if I didn't see it.

RE: Anybody know of a super-short jack?

If you need to carry a Jack to work on the ice machine, maybe it's time for a new machine. :@

RE: Home toilet

I wouldn't want a porcelain toilet with a tank full of water bouncing down the road. Plus, the extra weight.

RE: Boy this listing IS FISHY

It was flagged for removal. It was probably a good deal and someone quickly snapped it up. :B

RE: Should I be concerned with this?

Wow, that's a horrible caulking job! I would redo that entire seam and probably the rest of the camper if it looks anything at all like those photos. X2 That looks very sloppy. Yes, it's a terrible job. Another reason to thoroughly inspect any RV you buy, new or used.

RE: What's more important? Kids space or living area?

If the kids don't have their own space, they'll ALWAYS be in the living area with you. :E Setting up and taking down the dinette and/or couch gets old, real quick.

RE: Pros/cons of class B and P/U slide in?

I don't own either but, I think SoCalDesertRider gave you the best answer. How will you use the RV and how often? Will it be your daily driver? The B's are nice. But so is Four Wheel Drive if you need it. There is a lot to think about. Take your time to decide which is best for you and your situation.

RE: Hydrophobic Coatings

I've read about this stuff. The general consensus seems to be, it works but, doesn't last long enough to make it practical. That was over a year ago. Maybe the newer product holds up longer? We probably won't know until someone on the forum tests it on their RV. Let us know how it works and how long it lasts. :)

RE: 2016 Front wheel drive Kia Sorento

Check the owners manual. That's the best source of information for dinghy towing. Also, check Remco Towing. A dolly may be your only option, other than a trailer. Just make sure the dolly is wide enough for your Sorento.

RE: Maroon Bells

Both links go to the same site. Am I missing something or doing something wrong?

RE: Generator that won't break the bank..

Inverter generators produce cleaner electricity that is safe for electronics, computers, etc.. Another option is an open frame generator, relatively inexpensive, and a Quiet Box. It's more stuff to carry with you but, it will get the job done cheaper than an inverter. Do a google search for other quiet box ideas.

RE: Tip to getting a reservation at a busy RV Park

Here's a quick tip to help you get a reservation at a busy RV Park. Don't call to make that reservation if your children are killing each other in the background or your pack of hounds are treeing a coon. We will take a chance in those situations that a better fit for the one remaining site will come along. Good tip. I can see you are a person who pays attention to details, and sounds. :)

RE: RV sitting for over 2 years - recommendations

Check for leaks, it probably had no maintenance or inspections in at least two years. Have a diesel mechanic/RV Tech check everything. Especially the engine and drive train. Where was it sitting for two years, inside, outside, covered, not covered?

RE: Is this a proper way to hang my flag for the 4th of July?

This one will do it accurately and will never complain about the job. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1vaNoZ_te7Y That just makes it a 'routine' which lacks any respect or meaning in the Raising and Lowering of our FLAG. Just another 'thing' that happens like a Stop Light changing from RED to GREEN except less people will pay attention Yep. Did you notice the person who walked by and paid no attention to the lowering flag? I would rather see a light on the flag and have it fly all night. It doesn't take much to have it go wrong, flag torn or stuck with the flag partially unfurled. And no one would notice.

RE: RV sitting for over 2 years - recommendations

Service dept #2 gets my vote. Plan on buying new tires. It's very possible it has the original tires.
