RE: Radio antenna

From your description I would not suspect the Antenna. Antenna's usually either work, or not work. Not start and then "fail" after warm up. I would point at the radio, this type of fault is not uncommon. Some component is probably failing due to heat. I would guess something in the power-supply, since it's both AM and FM. Simple "Fix" may be just a new radio.

RE: Non contact Voltmeter

Em.... Can't say I've every seen either, that is a no-contact DC or AC voltmeter. I have seen some e-field meters but trying to relate those to voltage in the wire would be, well, difficult. Are you certain you haven't seen an AC induction Amp-meter and getting them confused? Those are fairly common.

RE: Should my 5th wheel have shock absorbers?

Something stinks here. How are you "buying" a 1989 Nash when Northwoods wasn't started until 1993? Now we had a 99 24-5N and they did NOT put shocks on all smaller 5ers back then. Some had them (ours) some didn't

RE: dual pane windows on an RV

Yes they work, warming in winter, cooler in summer and less condensation

RE: How do YOU start your campfire?

this is how you really start a fire LOX on a BBQ
n7bsn 04/21/14 06:25pm General RVing Issues

Well, we owned our first rig for 10 years, a 24-5N, which we bought used, we have had this rig for nearly three (new). Lets see, what was "wrong" from the factory. The lifting hoist for the spare had lost a bolt and wouldn't work (fixed before we left the dealer), the metal pantry rack needed adjustment and the fresh water fill was not properly sealed. I was actually at the dealer (dropping off the trade-in) the day the new rig arrived and saw it "factory", clean and ready for delivery. I have heard of many owners that have taken out-of-warranty work to the factory done for free (not all of course, but if it was workmanship, the odds are good. BTW, if you are ordering consider asking for the "Direct-Responce" power awning vrs the normal one. That one can be set to auto-retract if the wind comes up

RE: Tire dealers in BC, Washington state or Oregon.

Discount Tire as also don't think CostCo can handle Motorhomes Last year I was replacing the tires on the Focus, CostCo had a discount coupon on Michelin tires. While I was there someone came looking for a tire-size CostCo didn't stock. The CostCo tire guy suggested she go to Discount Tire, saying it was where he went when CostCo couldn't get the tire he wanted. A couple years ago I need to replace the tires on the Truck, same brand/model Discount beat both CostCo and Les Schwab. Actually the only time I have done business with Les Schwab lately I needed an inner-tube for a cart. Discount had to break someone away from fixing tires to tell me they were out of stock. Les Schwab had three guys standing around doing nothing.... I used to go to Les Schwab most of the time, however after Les retired from running the business I watched prices climb and service decline.

RE: Tempurpedic / Memory Foam or Sleep Number Bed

What do you sleep on at home? Do you like it? If so, put the same bed in your RV. That's what we did. A Sleep Number with a Foam Topper

RE: Fifth Wheel or Goose Neck

I can tell you that Northwoods advises not to use a Gooseneck, and that it would void the warranty (if any) on the frame. Be advised that Northwoods redesigned the 27-5L mid-year in 2012. Early production are the same as older models, ie bedroom slide on the curb side. Late production the bedroom slide is on the street side, ie the current floor plan

RE: Boondocking in Montana

The north border MONTANA and adjoining States area camp sites are really hosed up now for the on-going OIL BOOM in that region. Everyone has re-located up in that region with no where to live it seems... Every available spot has a mobile home or camper sitting on it now... What a mess... Roy Ken EH? Roy, you have no clue what you are talking about. While far eastern Montana is certainly impacted by the oil boom in North Dakota, the area the OP is asking about is between 6 and 10 hour drive from that area. Montana is much larger then your understand. Border to border on I-90/I-94 is about 660 miles

RE: Boondocking in Montana

The Forest Service allows dispersed camping in much of the land around you. That would be my first recommendation Of course it will be miles away from any town.

RE: Montana 5th wheel fire damage repair with pics

well that's odd. I used flickr and clicked the photo link on rv.net to add the URL, but it comes up as a square with no photo. Not sure what I did wrong I looked at the source code and the link to your images are not pointing to Flickr, looks like they are a relative link to something else.

RE: K-Z now owned by Thor

THOR's typical pattern is buy a RV maker that is doing well and leave the company to continue the job. So... if THOR thinks K-Z is doing things OK, there probably will be few, if any, changes.

RE: Advice on Light weight 5th wheel

... A used 245N would be closest. http://www.rvsnorthwest.com/new_vehicle_detail.asp?veh=232988&CatDesc=Fifth%20Wheels We had a 24-5N for nearly a decade, great rig They also made a smallish (25-5?) bunkhouse model. But I don't recall then exact model number

RE: Brand of Backup Cameras installed by Arctic Fox

Have your dealer call Don at the factory and ask him If they say "Don Who", find a different dealer.

RE: Trying to register a 1971 Travel Trailer with no VIN.

Bare in mind that before 1981 VINs were not standardized and may not remotely resemble a current VIN. The VIN on my old 1976 MeToo was 11 digits long

RE: 90's era fifth wheels....what brand do you like?

At that age, who took care of it, and how well, matters more then who made it. I once saw a 20year old Fleetwood that looked like it had just rolled off the show-room floor. I also have seen a three year old New Horizon (which I would argue is better then your list) that was trashed to the point where it was on a no-name bargain RV dealer's lot.

RE: Washington State Ferries

They load the sports-cars and slammed show cars all the time. Make certain you get reservations, for RVs it's the only way you can be anything close to certain you will be on the ferry.
