RE: 5th wheel for full time rving

How deep are your pockets? New Horizon is certainly the best made rigs around, but they start at $100,000 and quickly pass $150,000. Best affordable rig is another question

RE: Fifth Wheel Tire Pressure

What does Keystone say? I know Northwoods says with typical loading they recommend 80 psi (cold)

RE: More RV Regulations

We all need to remember that the article Dick linked to is an opinion piece by Greg, note that Greg did NOT link to the actual proposed regulations Also note Greg did not say they were proposed regulations.

RE: Feral cat in 5er

I've seen kittens born in the wild from a feral and domestic parents that never were tame enough to let anyone touch them even after they reached adulthood. Oh sure they will take food just like a bird/coon or park deer/etc......but they make poor cuddly pets. Were not talking about a poor alley cat having kittens. IMO some of the folks replying don't understand what a feral animal is. Hell we have a very serious feral hog problem in my area. Most folks know where feral hogs came from and how/why they stay feral. It takes several cycles of breeding with domestic hogs to get rid of the wildness/aggression. Cats are no different. As long as we could catch the kittens by four or so weeks, they would completely tame and become lap fungus. Happened every litter we caught, well over a dozen.

RE: Washington State Residency

Simply not true (post I-695) Washingtons taxes are based on being a resident living in the state. If you don't actually "live" in Washington... you don't pay gas-tax, sales-tax or (real) property tax. .... How do you not pay the gas tax if not a resident? Gas tax is included in the price at the pump and is not deducted for any reason. At least I have never seen that happen. Sales tax is not charged if you live in, and have ID showing non-WA residency, (driver's license) a bordering state. But you have to show non-WA ID and, many times, sign a form. I'm guessing you missed the part about actually "living" in Washington. If you are someplace else you aren't paying Washington gas or sales tax.

RE: Washington State Residency

Check the tax situation first. yes by all means do this. they are going to take you to the cleaners for taxes on you MH or TT. beware of the washington vehicle tax program Simply not true (post I-695) Washingtons taxes are based on being a resident living in the state. If you don't actually "live" in Washington... you don't pay gas-tax, sales-tax or (real) property tax. All there would be is vehicle taxes. Now the weight tax on a truck can be reasonable. But I just renewed the tabs on my Focus for $48, and the trailer is about the same.

RE: Feral cat in 5er

How is a kitten 'born' wild? Its parents are wild -- either feral or abandoned. Such kittens, in my experience, take about 30 minutes to tame :). Food is all it takes Back before we found a group that would TNR (Trap-Neuter-Release) the local colony we would trap the kittens (real easy), then trap the mother(easy, once you have the kittens). We could never tame the mother, but the kittens were plain easy. The kittens we found good homes for. Most animal groups do NOT want to come and clean out a feral colony, because what will happen is another colony will form, in the same area, within months. Since all colonies are made up of related females, it doesn't take long for the colony to start growing... All it takes is one male. What they suggest is to have the colony TNRed and released back in the same area. That way they form a stable colony, for years to come. We had our local colony (made up of the daughters and grand-daughters of a tossed "tame" cat) TNRed about 10 years ago. Nesting boxes and a little food and they have made our yard their base. The years have taken their toll, and a colony once made up of 9 cats is down to two. Once they are gone we will certainly contact our local "Barn Cats" group and have another two or three out-door girls.

RE: Feral cat in 5er

We have a nesting box next to the RV, and have for years and years. The feral cats sleep in it and we have -never- had mice in the rig. Nor do we have moles in the yard. We've made the cats allies rather then pests.

RE: 1 ton truck and AF 990?

I am currently hauling my AF 990 on my 1999 F-250 super cab 7.3 with mods being E rated tires and wheels, Big Wig sway bars front and rear, air bags and Rancho 9000 shocks. It seems like quite a load on the truck. When fully loaded the camper weighs in the neighborhood of 5,000# Also with the camper on the truck I am afraid to tow my 20' boat. Now to the question. Could I make this work with a SRW 1 ton truck or would I have to go to a DRW truck? Anyone out there doing this with a 1 ton SRW? Thinking about getting a used late model or new truck. Thanks John With that much weight, I think you would be happier with the DRW Back when I was buying my 99 F250 the Ford sales-geek told me he had sold an F250 to someone for their AF camper (I had mentioned AF, since I would be towing a 24-5N). He said the guy popped the hub of the rear-axle going around a corner...

RE: Coeur D'Alene to Pocatello ID tomorrow

I'm looking at 90 east to 15 south. https://goo.gl/maps/VcbW6spGB3z While it's all freeway, you cross the Continental Divide twice what way. Plus two additional passes. I'm only recalling one pass on US-95 and nothing once you hit the Interstate in Idaho. If weather is good I'd go US-95 Getting a car at Dave Smith eh

RE: Northwood rigs

For vacations and weekends the Fox Mountain could do you fine. For long trips, the Fox Mountain is short on storage

RE: Northwood rigs

While we have dealers close...I'm surprised how many people travel from the east coast to west coast buy a NW product. And also surprised how many people that want a used NW in the east. Last summer we were in Banff and one of the neighbor rigs was a brand-new Fox Mountain, with temp plates for Tenn. They had started on the summer trip with the Grandson in the AF camper and decided it was too small. They stopped at the factory and talked with the dealer in town, and left town with their new fiver. :) Of course 10+ years back NW had a factory back east east, but closed it/

RE: Northwood rigs

Actually a well insulated rig will do you well in a hot clime also, besides keeping heat in, it will keep heat out. Northwoods will authorize "non-dealer" warranty repairs, if you are distant from any dealer.

RE: Suburban SF-30F furnace won't turn on

Chris is pretty much dead bang on, on his guesses. Sail switches do go bad and/or attract lint/dog hair/etc... stopping them from working. Chris is also a pro, even owns his own RV repair business

RE: Suburban SF-30F furnace won't turn on

Does it "click" if you turn the thermostat off, wait, then back on. If so, the click means the thermostat is probably working, if not, it might be bad. If it does click, see the advise above

RE: Suburban SF-30F furnace won't turn on

Ok my furnace on our 2008 Keystone Cougar 276 came on this morning started to heat up and then shut off after about 15 mins.andnow does not want to come back on. Any ideas on what it is. Blower, control board or what? Who knows.... furnace model, thermostat model, exact symptoms, much more details needed.

RE: Seattle to Butte Yellowstone Rapid City Medora.Best Route?

Yes Yellowstone is "open" year around. It's just not all the roads are "open". If the roads are closed the buildings may also be closed, and so are the campgrounds. The only road open (to vehicles) is the north entrance at Mammoth. When the rest of the roads open depends on the year, a "low snow" year it could be April. A heavy snow year, well, I've had a snow-ball fight (from fresh fallen snow) on July 4th. I've seen years when the passes aren't opened until mid June. On average it snows (a little) every June. It really depends on the year, most El Nino weather patterns lead to a low snow pack (in 1977 I drove through the entire park in early April). So this -might- be a low snow year. But maybe not.... I used to live in the area and have been in the "park" every month of the year.
