Good tip, thanks.

RE: Best place to sell unneeded RV stuff?

Try listing it here, It would get deleted. You may want to read the forum rules. That's one of the questions on the test to be promoted to Senior Member. :)

RE: Blue Tarp

If it's for one winter, use a tarp. Make sure you secure it well or the wind will remove it. I wouldn't buy a cover for one season. I use a cover on our Southwind and never had a problem with it rubbing or damaging the paint. We get a lot of winter wind in our area. For the past two months I've had the roof covered with a tarp because of a leak. I plan on installing the cover and leaving the tarp in place for the winter. I did this a few years ago when we got a lot of rain/ice/snow. There were no proasblems from the tarp under the cover. But, a car port is a much better cover. Build it first thing in the spring, it's easier to use. :)

RE: Can we tow a 2015 Mini Cooper 4 down?

The owners manual will tell you, it's probably the best source of towing information for your particular car. Not all manual transmissions can be flat towed.

RE: Best place to sell unneeded RV stuff?

Try Craigslist. If there is a Campground nearby, see if they have a place to advertise.

RE: Andy

It's a difficult decision. I've done it several times. Please, keep us updated.

RE: Gas or Electric

It's okay to supplement your gas heater with an electric heater. Many do it, myself included, when on shore power. It doesn't hurt anything.

RE: Does anyone block their TT for storage?

Our 37' Southwind sits in the tires all year, no problems. I don't think it's necessary to block your TT. Is your Sothwind unit a TT or a class A? I can understand not jacking up Class A's because of the weight . Class A. It has hydraulic levelers but, I don't use them to take some of the weight off the suspension and tires. All vehicle suspensions are designed to support the dynamic weight in addition to the static weight. Blocking or raising a vehicle during storage doesn't really help the suspension and tire life.

RE: Should we ban DHMO?

Anyone want to buy some dehydrated DHMO? Great prices & quantity discounts available. Do you reactivate it by adding water :@

RE: antifreeze in rv toilet

It will not ruin the seal. You could possibly ruin the seal by NOT pouring antifreeze on top of the valve. It's part of my winterizing procedure.

RE: anyone seen this type of ceiling fan ?

Try taking it apart, cleaning and lubing it before reassembly. Maybe it's just not working properly. It probably won't make it quieter but it may make it work at an acceptable level. It's worth a shot. Also, check Amazon and Ebay along with RV suppliers for a replacement that will fit the existing hole.

RE: Ice fishing RV

I would be concerned that when you lower it onto the ice, something would freeze and you couldn't raise it. Under 'features' it lists Nitrogen Filled Tires. Does that keep the tires from freezing? :)

RE: One solution for the blow out plug

Won't work for everyone; worked for me. That's all that matters. Thanks for sharing, it's always nice to get different ideas. :C

RE: Extended service policy

I would not buy one. Ask for a blank copy of the agreement, take it home and read it completely. After you see all the exceptions you can make a better decision. What do you mean 'up to 5 years discounted to $800?' You can buy it for up to 5 years @$800 per year? What is the warranty on the new TT? Will the extended warranty start when the manufacturers warranty expires or, will it be concurrent with the manufactures warranty? I would rather put the money aside and repair things as needed. Just my opinion.

RE: Dicor or Eternabond

I battled that for years until I found Heng's RV roof coating. Goes on like paint and seals up anything that leaks. Might take a few coats. Looks interesting, I've never heard of it. Thanks for the link. I'm coating my roof in the spring.

RE: Should we ban DHMO?

It's a little early, or late, for April Fools Day. But, maybe there is someone out there that doesn't know about DHMO or what we call it everyday. :W

RE: Retirement Trip

I can't recommend a CG. But, while you're in the east, consider Gettysburg, Philadelphia and other historical areas. There is a lot to see outside the DC area. Did you ever hear of the Cape May-Lewes Ferry? DC has a lot to see but, there's a lot more to see if you're interested. Do some research and make the best of your trip. :) Congrats on your pending retirement.

RE: Fixed window replacement question

I have never done it but, I would not hesitate to try. I don't think it's any more difficult than replacing/installing Windows in a S&B. I've done that many times. Do a Google search for 'RV Replacment Windows', you will see what is available. Did you check YouTube? I'm sure you will find videos on replacing RV Windows.
