RE: What is the best way to de-ice slide-outs

Snow on the slides happens to me every year. Most of the time it ices so sweeping is not very successful. It would depend on the temp but if you can get the park water unfrozen, I usually take the hose to the top of the slides. Its not easy and it takes a long time for the cold water to melt the ice but that has been the best solution I have found.

RE: Replace All Calking

In AB as well. Had roof only caulking removed and replaced at Lazydays in Florida last winter. (rig was 4 years old) Lots of others getting the same service when I did. Price was just over $1000. I took their word on it, that it needed doing. Old caulk looked like ****....they did a nice job. Might have been unnecessary but for me the peace of mind of following an rv tech recommendation was worth it.

RE: F250 Electric Brake Control/Replaced

2010 F250 with factory brake control. Had failure with factory controller. I removed it and replaced it with Tekonsha Primus. I purchased Tekonsha wiring harness which plugs directly to brake control and directly to Ford factory harness. Brake control works great. Everytime I start the vehicle now, I get "brake control fault" on digital dashboard. I have tried Scan tool and cannot clear this fault, Any Ideas? On my 08 (F-450) with same controller as you, I cut the wires to the Ford IBC and spliced in the aftermarket. Just unplugging the Ford IBC gave me error messages. Not sure how that made a difference but it did. Trailer shop told me not to disconnect the Ford IBC but just to splice in the aftermarket one.

RE: San Diego in Jan

Campland and Mission have a lot of young families. Great if you want that. For about the same price Chula Vista RV & Marina (south SD) is on the water and slightly more adult. No problem with your choices though.

RE: My first trip to Dollywood area campgrounds

Most of the Severville,Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg campgrounds are pretty good. We like River Plantation.

RE: Water Heater Noise

In my 5er I've had the humming for over 4 years. Same 12 gal suburban. It bothered me for the first year but now I don't even notice it. Some neighbors comment about it but it doesn't bother me.

RE: Please help re Florida

SF is a bit cold. I wouldn't go in the winter. Traffic in LA is really bad but there are lots of nice places south of LA.(nice but not cheap if near the coast)

RE: Hemet. Golden Village Palms

Stayed over a month. Great park in a lot of ways. If you stay over a few weeks you get a back in. They are fine unless you have a larger (35' or longer) rig. The sites are wide but short. Big rigs need to back into the hedge and the front may protrude into the road. Pull thrus are long (but barren of trees or grass) but cannot be rented long term.

RE: kitchen faucet

The one that KZ uses is non repairable. I got one from Lowes that I can repair when it leaks.

RE: Air pin boxes

Not sure about other air hitches but I have a 5th airborne (for past 4 years) and would not get another one. Constantly needs air, and tows no better than my previous Mor-ryde non air. If you like dragging out the air compressor everytime you hitch up, get the 5th airborne IMO.

RE: Routing Question from my Canadian Friends

Just a tip if staying anywhere near Calgary or Edmonton. Don't...the parks there are not great. Try Cochrane, AB (west of Calgary) or Stony Plain (west of Edmonton).

RE: Montana crossings

Agree with GordonThree. Everytime we go though a small crossing, we get held up with a full search of all drawers and compartments.

RE: Air flow for residential fridge

We live in our rv at least 6 months a year. There is no way I am going to heat and cool the rig because I left two holes open in the wall. Leave yourself 1/2" on the sides and an inch on the top and seal those vents. That is the way mine is and it looks and works just fine. Dave I did mine the same way. Works great fulltiming. A friend left the rear vents open with his residential fridge instal. It took his first trip down the highway seeing all the dust blow in (with an rv fridge the fridge is sealed so that outside air cannot get into the living area) to decide to seal up the vents.

RE: Very New to Snowbirding Florida Question Please

Stayed in Navarre and its a great place but not in Dec, Jan or first part of Feb....tooo cold. As previously referenced, you want to be south of Orlando in the winter. (or Texas south of Corpus, AZ or south CA)

RE: Oil Service in Calgary, AB

I lived in Calgary for 20 years and always got my F-450 serviced at a Ford dealer without problems. (even had total engine rebuilds done at the Ford dealer) I don't know why an E-450 would be different. I now have an F-350 (almost the same thing) and get service every summer at Northstar Ford. (locations in Calgary & Cochrane, AB) PS...if you are staying in the Calgary area, the rv parks are less than stellar in Calgary. Try Cochrane (both are good) and its 20 minutes out of Calgary.

RE: TV Antenna

Have rarely found campground Wi-Fi strong enough to even get e-mail. Doubt if you could stream a movie.

RE: cabinet door

myredracer...my experience was like yours.....went to many cabinet makers to get a door made.....99% said it couldn't be done, the 1% that said they could do it wanted more than my trailer was worth just for the door. Part of the problem was that no one could match the profile and the other part was that to match the color was very expensive.

RE: Disc Brake conversion?

KIWIRVER Ford integrated brake controller in my 08 Ford would not properly run my hydraulic/electric disks in my trailer so I installed the Prodigy. You can not just disconnect the Ford IBC as the onboard computer will sense a problem and give you warning alarms. Just cut the wires from the Ford IBC and attach your aftermarket controller and it will work fine. The Ford computer will think no trailer is attached so it will not alarm and your aftermarket controller will brake your trailer.

RE: How does your slide work?

RE 4 season. Not sure about yours but on mine (2011 KZ Escalade) the dealer sold it as 4 season but after having the bottom off to replace the black valve, I noticed the same as you.(only a thin piece of foil) I went through the KZ literature very carefully. They talk about residential and full time living but never really call it 4 season livable. I do live in it in freezing weather and it works, but insulated its not.
