RE: A level site...

I would have dug a big hole for that one tire.

RE: Newbie...what are typical annual maintenance costs?

Over the past 8 years, we have purchased 2 new batteries, one new axle, 4 new tires, one awning, and a new mattress. Little things like LED lights, and small upgrades are not a thought.

RE: Holiday weekend camping

Not all weekends book as fast or as much as the big three holiday weekends. We try and stay away during that time. But I do realize that many weekenders love the packed parks and the ambience that goes with it.

RE: Asphalt storage pad

I believe 2.5" of AC is fine for your application if the base and sub-base are prepared and compacted properly.

RE: Drinking Water

In my mind, if the on board water supply is not up to drinking water standards, or if nobody will drink it for some reason, then I have not done an adequate job of getting our 5er ready for duty.

RE: How important is it to buy local?

I prefer to buy close to home since many of these types of purchases take more than one trip to get it home.

RE: Abbreviation help

I finally have a couple of them worked out: TT = travel trailer, or was it Thousand Trails. TV = travel vehicle, or was it television. BTW, D = dumb ;)

RE: Have you ever have this happen to you??

All I see is that the storage door must have been open when you pulled up. And now it won't close.

RE: Landing Gear Support

Sometimes when I notice that the front needs to be raised quite a bit, I will look to see if I can dig a hole for the tires.

Yep. Lately hearing them in the distant sky when I go to work at 6am.

RE: tips for 1st timer

As mentioned in a couple of the above posts, the key is to enjoy the outdoors and use the trailer as the sleeping quarters. We prefer dry camping in the Forest Service campgrounds around here and all of our awake time is outside, including the meals. One of the problems I see is where RVers will attempt to continue the "at home" experience out in the wild. Generators, microwaves, electronic gadgets and televisions aren't the way to "camp", IMHO

RE: House Batteries 6volt deep cycle

.......... If you want an honest opinion, call your local golf cart dealer/supplier and ask what their using. Might even be able to get a bargain directly from them. We purchased our current Trojan T-105's from a golf cart supplier. After searching around, they were the lowest price - for the specific Trojans that we were looking for.

RE: Must Haves for New to RV World (Chemicals)

My old camper needed the chemicals. When we upgraded to a much newer model, which included updated venting technology, we found that there were no smells at all. I still have some of those unused 25 year old deodorants sitting in my sewer basket.

RE: Don't be this person--PIC

If you were to park in-between 2 parked vehicles in a busy parking lot and those 2 vehicles were both straddling the stripes you would look like a fool later when everybody left and you were all by yourself with on-lookers thinking you were a jerk for parking that way. ;)

RE: Does 2 feet really make a difference

Each 2-feet will make a difference. Out west in our national forests anyway.

RE: Awning Replacement Fabric Width

There's really no debate here - the size of a roller tube awning is defined by the manufacturers as the distance between the centre of one support arm to the centre of the other and has nothing to do with the length of the material itself nor the length of the roller tube. Well, there is always room for debate! Not when it comes to correctly sizing an awning. There's one method and only one method, just as I described. No debate. :R What? No debate? Are we now debating that there is no room for a debate?:)

RE: Awning Replacement Fabric Width

While researching on-line myself this past winter for replacement fabric, it was often noted explicitly that you are to measure the distance or length of the roller.... or was it the distance from the center of each arm. And that the fabric was normally smaller than the width given. So naturally I was able to get confused by the descriptions. :) I ended up measuring what I had and what the roller gap was and went from there. I should also have about 3" of gap on either sides.

RE: Plate to plate gap

If I had your problem, while unhooked I would measure the pin length and also the clear distance below the hitch plate - and see what made sense.
