RE: Will regular epoxy hold?

Measured it today with my Bangood heat gun. 113 degrees after 40 interstate miles. I estimate 150 max. Does that sound about right? If so, I can use 3m4200.

RE: Thoughts on a Chevy 8.1L Gas Engine vintage 2003

Wow. When I bought mine I called Winnebago to make sure I had no outstanding recalls. Probably not a bad idea.

RE: What glue to use?

I always have some 3m 5200 polyurethane adhesive in the freezer. I have successfully attached trim with it.

RE: Shoppping for a new trailer

Some Dealer RV prices are pure fantasy. I searched Winnebago Sightseer 27c, my motor home, to see if it had been mentioned anywhere. I found 2 for sale, both around $28,000. They are worth about $15,000, approximately what I paid once you account for the ebay sales price (actual value) of my trade in, verses double the amount they supposedly gave me on trade. It is all mumbo jumbo. You have to know the actual value of your trade and what your unit is actually selling for. Ebay is a good place to start. Isn't there a rule of thumb about 1/3 off list price?

RE: Thoughts on a Chevy 8.1L Gas Engine vintage 2003

I have a Winnebago Sightseer 27 with an 8.1. Love the engine. If I had bought a Suburban with the 8.1 instead of the Excursion with the V10, I would probably still have the Suburban and a travel trailer.

RE: Regarding free over nights

Last couple of trips I've started overnighting at Cracker Barrel. Quiet and a great place for breakfast the next day.

RE: Need advice on this winterization detail

Don't forget you have to do all the p traps in the drains. I use cheap windshield washer anti freeze.

RE: Installing Cover on Wet Trailer

They tilt. I left mine tilted down about 3/4 of the way.

RE: South of I-4 between Christmas and New Years no reservations

I have my day spot and my night. The night spot can be in a nighborhood or by a school ground or church or a park. I will scout out an area...and then be off to the day spot...say, the beach...then end of day and dark, I ease on over to the chosen night place. I don't ever have problems finding night spots..but..I have zero idea about the eastern side of things. This is what I was hoping to do. If you give it a try, keep us updated with a link here so I can follow it.

RE: Progressive cut my rate in half

We have an ins agent and had the house, cars and TT all in one place. When we traded the TT for our MH our agent said we should go with Progressive for the MH and keep everything else like it was. When Progressive renewed after the first year the price went down, a small amount but down. We'll see what happens next year. You've got a really good agent. With all the weird questions my Allstate agent was asking me about the motorhome (original purchase price) I should have known they didn't really want to insure motorhomes.

RE: Progressive cut my rate in half

It is easier to switch the motorhome than 3 cars, 2 motorcycles and Homeowners.

RE: Installing Cover on Wet Trailer

I covered my 33'TT a number of years. Then I calculated the resale savings by covering (minimal) vs the cost if my wife or I fell off the roof (possibly $$$$$). If I could have figured out a safe way to do it I would still be covering. I couldn't make the benefit worth the risk. I did preemptively Eternabond every seam. Be careful.

Progressive cut my rate in half

My insurance with Allstate on my 02 Winnebago Sightseer 27c was $1,150 annually. They wouldn't let me have a deductible higher than $500 for collision and comprehensive. $100 a month for insurance seemed high to me, so I shopped Progressive online. My rate dropped to $520 a year, with $1,000 deductible, 100/300 uninsured, underinsured and $40,000 PIP. I switched on the spot. Called the number on the website and talked to an agent who referenced my quote number. Pretty painless. I'm almost 60 and have a clean driving and claims history. I can't understand the huge price difference with only the small deductable change. Will I get a similar reduction when I have them price my auto/motorcycle/homeowners insurance?

RE: Destin, Fl area

Fort Pickens is a must. Either to camp or just to see. It's a Federal park and not as commercial as Top Sail. By that I mean it's more of a campers park, rather than a RV park. Pickens is our choice in the area. We hate McGuires. Get seafood at Jo Patti's and cook at camp.

RE: South of I-4 between Christmas and New Years no reservations

We ended up getting in at Hillsborough River. We stayed here last year. Not a bad drive to Ft. Desoto for day trips.

RE: Tires

Consider checking with Simple tire. I'm happy with the Hankooks I got there. I'm not a big fan of Chinese brand tires. Had a local shop mount and balance them.

RE: South of I-4 between Christmas and New Years no reservations

Thanks for the encouraging words. I know I can't camp at DeSoto, but I can use it as a day stop. If push comes to shove I can overnight in an industrial area and park on the street, or find a downtown and park on the street, or park in a motel parking lot. If the genset isn't running, there really isn't any way to tell it is occupied. My idea is to overnight cheap and ugly and to move to beachfront during the day. I'll need to get up early to get a good spot. I could never do anything like that with a TT, but it is feasible with a small MH.

RE: Age Limit on Used RV?

The only problem with an older leak free unit is the decals. I think I'm going to remove mine a section at a time and paint the straight decals. Eternabond it right away to keep it leak free. Water is the enemy. I bought my TT new and my MH used. Money wise, I have about 1-2 years of depreciation of a new one in mine. I suggest you look on Ebay to get an idea of actual values. I remember those Apache plastic popups. Growing up we had a Scamper with the blue vinyl cloth. I think there would be a market for a smaller Apache style unit with the solid plastic sides.

RE: South of I-4 between Christmas and New Years no reservations

I called a Cracker Barrel in St. Augustine and one in Clearwater close to Ft. Desoto, and both permit overnight Rv parking. Hmmm. I may not have to cook this trip! The key may be to stay away from extreme southern Fl. I'm going to check Ft. Meyers close to Sanabel. UPDATE. They do.
