RE: Ants

I have used this formula a few times with good results: Borax will kill odorous house ants, and powdered sugar will attract them. Make a homemade bait by thoroughly mixing one part borax with 3 parts powdered sugar. Fill tiny containers (such as bottle caps) with this homemade bait and place them as close to the place where you suspect ants are entering your house. If you see trails of ants, place small containers of the mixture directly in their path. This prevents most of them from traveling all around your house if they have easy access to this sugary treat. (Have pets or kids who might get into this powdery mixture? Try this instead: mix one cup warm water with ½ cup sugar and 3 tablespoons borax. Soak it up with cotton balls and place them in shallow dishes near ant trails.) Resist the urge to kill all the ants you see. They will carry the bait back to the nest, unable to differentiate between the borax and sugar, and the borax particles will eventually kill the entire colony. The more ants that are allowed to find the bait and carry it back, the faster the colony will die off.

RE: Coleman Lemon!!!!

You might want to invest in a moisture meter to monitor the ceiling below where the leak was. There are also mold test kits available....

RE: Question for S. Cal people

Gorman is at the top of the Grapevine. Using the 138 you will still have to deal with the steepest part of the Grapevine.

RE: Calling an electrician

Not an electrician....but my recommendation: #6 copper wire will limit the voltage drop to 3.52% or less when supplying 30 amps 150 ft. on a 120 volt system. #4 copper wire for 50 amps. These are my rough calculations.

RE: RV SWAY

You might look at Henderson's Line-Up in Grants Pass, OR for info and then check for suspension shops in your area. The sway bars really cut down on the trucks blowing us off the road.

RE: Beginning Search for Class C (drawn to 12+ yr old Lazy Daze)

Lazy Daze is a great brand....but the roof must be sealed at least once every 2 years. Check for any soft spots both inside and out.....

RE: New F-53 Chassis Mods for new Class A

Making the mods will make the ride so much better. Also, have the 4-corners weighed and adjust the tire pressure accordingly. Just cost us $ 7,000 at Henderson's Line-Up in Grants Pass, OR.

RE: Anaheim RV Park

We like the Anaheim RV Park due to it's location. However, in two weeks we are going back down for dinner at Disneyland and decided to stay a few miles away at Orangeland RV Park.

RE: Class C temp parking

For the heck of it I Googled "Suffolk, VA Vehicle storage ordinance". The only two things that came up were "Vehicles parked on grass" & abandoned/inoperable vehicles". Nothing about RV storage on private property. You might go back to the city and see if you can read through the code, or try and look it up on-line.

RE: steering stabalizers

We had ours upgraded at Henderson's Line Up in Grants Pass. No sales tax either.

RE: Used but almost new price opinion

First I would use www.nada.com Then I would take the MSRP and deduct say 30% and offer the lower of the two and see what happens. Low ball your offer since it is an older model that is just sitting there and then see what they come back with. DO NOT GET ATTACHED and remember that you can walk away if the deal is not good enough.

RE: Self driving RV...and as always, Canada leads the way

My wife's car is a Tesla with the Auto Pilot. I am telling you that it is still in Beta testing, it is really amazing and reacted in one incident faster than me when a pick up cut us off. It is not perfect, but darn good. Freightliner is testing an 18-wheeler on the roads of Nevada with auto pilot. Driver must be at the wheel in case of an emergency.

RE: Suspension upgrade

The overall upgrade has really improved the ride. Rocking has been greatly reduced.

Suspension upgrade

For health reasons my wife could no longer tolerate the rocking motion of our 2013 Class A Allegro Open Road 36LA 37 ft on a Ford F-53 chassis. We opted for a hail Mary to try and reduce the suspension motion and the solution has resolved about 80% of the rocking. These upgrades work for Diesels as well as pick ups. We used Henderson's Line up in Grants Pass, OR based on comments on this forum and other reviews. Their service and knowledge was outstanding....not cheap though. For about $7,000 they replaced or added certain components. Test drive to evaluate the suspension and then installed a Safe-T-Plus steering control, Installed a front sway bar, and an auxiliary rear sway bar and replaced all of the shocks with Koni brand shocks, and installed a Supersteer rear track bar., then added Sumo springs front and back. They also performed a 4 corner weigh. This took two days and at the end of the first night we picked the coach up and went back to our campground. Returned it the next day prior to 8 am. Wife is happy and thinks she can tolerate the remaining motion for 6 hours. Has done 7 hours down the I-5 California torture track....

RE: Smell of mold and must

https://wiki.ezvid.com/best-moisture-meters?id=bng You might try one of these and see what it shows on the walls. You might call and independent company that deals with water damage and have them test the interior for mold in the air. And then proceed from there.

RE: best place to stay when visting yellowstone

In Cody, WY we like the Ponderosa campground. Do not miss the wild horse preserve outside of town on the BLM land. To visit Yellowstone National Park we like Grizzly RV Park in West Yellowstone, MT.
