RE: Do shops ever fix something on the first try?

Where are you taking your RV that is doing the bad repairs?

RE: PLEASE HELP! Batteries are not operating rig

I'm glad you got everything working. You may want to check your batteries. If they were at 12 Volts, they're not charged properly. The 12 Volt Side of Life will explain battery charge levels. While this is a good introduction to 12 volts, the S.O.C. chart is incorrect. Check here for better info:Battery University Thanks. :C

RE: Burro Schmidt's Tunnel Have you been there?

I've never heard of it, it definitely looks interesting. However, there is absolutely no way my DW would go in that tunnel. No way.. Thanks for posting.

RE: fire ban

I would think if there is a ban on camp fires, it would include all open flames. The ban sucks but, it's better than burning down thousands of acres and several homes. Is there such a thing as an Electric/LED Camp Fire? It wouldn't be as neat but you would still have a focal point for the evening gathering. I know, you can't make smores and hot dogs over a LED flame. :)

RE: Screw Sucked Into Head of Generator

generator head is the alternator / dynamo, which almost all are open frame. since it deals with powerful magnetic fields, not hard to imagine a wayward screw being drawn in. still begs the question, where did this screw come from? The OP is a new member, first post. A little more info would be helpful. I think if a screw was sucked into the cylinder head, it would cause major damage. A small screw stuck to the magnetized generator head could have been picked up almost anywhere. Including the factory.

RE: Screw Sucked Into Head of Generator

Is the OP talking about the Engine Cylinder Head or the Generator Head? :?

RE: to cover or not to cover

Lots of opinions here. If it were me I would not cover if using every other week. When it does come time to cover I suggest using a high grade tarp with half full milk jugs of water hung on bungee cords to almost eliminate wind flap. Also make a set of two poles with hooks on top so you can easily lift tarp and pull from tront to rear while on the ground. We did this until we could afford a metal canopy. Best of luck You must not get much wind in your area. Presently, because of a leak, I have a tarp over the top of our Southwind. On each side I have five, 5 gallon buckets filled with bricks and water. The wind lifts and moves the buckets. Hanging milk jugs partially filled with water wouldn't hold it down. But, they would turn into sledge hammers when they freeze. :E

RE: Does walmart sell wine in NJ and PA?

What other stores in pa...weiss? Unfortunately, you would have to check with each store to see if it has a wine license. I don't think there are a lot of stores that sell it. Pennsylvania runs its own liquor/wine stores. The state really doesn't want competition. It's an antiquated system but, it's all we have. Take a road trip and go to Maryland. :)

RE: Pad in your yard

I don't think the artificial turf on top of the grass is a good idea. Mold, things living under it, etc.. I removed a portion of the grass in my yard and use it to park the Southwind and cars. I'm surprised that municipalities require a 'hard' surface. Most places limit the area you can cover with concrete, asphalt and structures. They want the rain water to soak into the ground. Gravel makes sense. But, we're talking about government so, we can't use the words common sense. If you can install a gravel pad, that's way to go. It's quick, cheap and can be easily removed.

RE: to cover or not to cover

I cover our Southwind during the winter. We get a lot of winter wind, I have never had any damage from the cover rubbing. It's not difficult to install, at least for me. I wouldn't install the cover for a few weeks. Keep your rig clean and waxed, you'll be okay.

RE: Does walmart sell wine in NJ and PA?

There are a few grocery stores that sell wine in PA. But, the LCB has not authorized the general sales at grocery, convenience, etc. stores. Welcome to the Quaker State. :(

RE: SAFEST way to get on roof...OEM ladder or extension ladder?

The SAFEST way is to pay someone to do the job. I use the attached ladder to get on the roof. When working around the edge, I set up a couple sections of scaffold. If it's just a small area, I use a 8' step ladder.

RE: Spare Parts To Carry

We all have different ideas about what to carry and how much. Spare parts and tools for some, consist of a cell phone and credit card. I carry basic parts and tools, including duct tape.

RE: Tow bar braking

I don't know anything about the Blue Ox but, it sounds a lot like the Ready Brake. It pulls on a cable attached to the brake pedal. Nothing else is needed inside the toad.

RE: Parking in front of my house

The best defense is a nasty offense. Love it. (sound of sharp buzzer) WRONG ANSWER. A co-worker of mine has a friend who is currently sitting in jail as a result of this type of one-upmanship. Neighborly feuds become deadly way too often. If it's wrong for the neighbor to harass then why is it right for you to do so? I'd be interested in what the ticket said as well. Perhaps there's an ordinance the OP is unaware of. I have no idea of my town ordinances as we always kept ours in the back yard. Jebby 14 was talking about being LEGALLY unpleasant. There are proper ways to handle neighborhood disputes. Violence is not one of the ways.:)

RE: Faucet Replacement ?

Replaced the bathroom faucet with a regular residential faucet. About a half hour job. Water lines fit perfectly! I believe there is no difference between most residential faucets and an RV one. Other than quality. If you go to a RV store they will probably tell you it's a special faucet, that's why it costs so much. Sort of like RV Toilet paper. ;)

RE: Ford Ranger

Keep looking, you'll find something that fits your needs and budget you can tow 4 down or on a dolly.
