RE: How do YOU start your campfire?

1/2 cup gasoline, 2 cups diesel fuel, road flare. Works every time. I hope you are kidding about the gasoline, the fumes are to volatile and you could be nursing some burnt hair on your head or face if you continue. Please readers of this, don't ever use gasoline to start your campfire

RE: Atwood Hot Water Drain Plug

One thought, if you have the nylon plug, go buy a six point socket to use in removal and installation of the plug. Keeps from rounding off the corners of the plug. And I also use Teflon tape on the threads, works for me.

RE: Trailer lights have me baffled?????

Since you installed new tail lights, do they have a separate ground wire? Some tail lights just depend on the mounting bolts to establish a ground contact with the skin/siding of the RV. If you have no separate ground wire and your RV skin is non metallic, then the mounting bolts `will not make a ground. To test this theory, attach a jumper wire to a frame/ground point and touch the other end of the wire to an exposed metal part on the inside of the tail light thus making a ground connection and see if the lights come ON. give it a try.

RE: Scam drawing allowed in Camping world stores-Marcus??

If you look at the fine print and you are over 75, you are not even eligible to get the free camping nights, let alone get to even listen to a presentation. Since I am 79 that lets me out of the deal. I have never signed up at a place like that but have received those offers in the mail, that is where I read the age restriction. buyer beware

RE: leveling a trailer on site

When I had a TT, I installed 2 calibrated levels on the front of the TT. Then I backed in the site and looked at the levels to find the low side. Then I looked at the calibrated levels and they told me how low in inches that I was low. If it said I was 1 inch low, I would back the TT onto 1 inch boards or lego blocks and then I was level from side `to side. Then unhooked and then used the touhge jack to level front to back. Then use the stabilizer jacks to stiffen the four corners. Calibrated levels

RE: Your thoughts CA-120 from Bishop to Mateca-CA

It depends on time of year. Right now 120 over Tiuga pass is closed due to snow. No estimate of date that it will open, but usually end of may or first of June.

RE: Dinghy front wheels dragging/sliding on a turn

I am not as long as you are, 32ft, but the only time I even came close to dragging the front toad wheels was when I made a real sharp right turn and then a real sharp left turn without letting the whole unit come back to straight before making the last turn. I saw that the wheels were going to slam to one side and stopped and went back and straightened the steering wheel and then completed the turn. So no more back to back sharp turns without straightening the MH first.

RE: Going from Bakersfield to Death Valley NP..

I go from Bakersfield then on Hwy 58 to Hwy 14, hear Mojave, then left on Hwy 14, then right on hwy 178 to Inyokern, stop and buy gas there and then on to Ridgecrest and take hwy 178 to Trona and then after a few miles turn left on to Panamint valley road, then right on Hwy 190 over Towne pass and down into Death Valley at stovepipe wells. Towne pass is pretty steep, 11 % grade but just downshift and you will be allright. I drive a 32 ft class A towing a CRV and I am down to first gear, 25 MPH pulling that short section of 190 and make sure you downshift going down the other side into Death valley to save your brakes Just a note, Panamint valley road is under repair and might be one lane in some areas. If you miss the fuel stop in Inyokern, make sure you fill up in Ridgecrest as fuel in Death Valley is HIGH. You can usually find an open camp spot at Stovepipe wells. Death Valley

RE: what's easiest drive from Sonoma County to Bridgeport Ca

Highway 108 is not a highway you should take. It is steep, 26% I believe, and narrow and has many tight turns. Hwy 50 would be my choice.

RE: Best Route from Sacramento, CA to Fortuna?

I say NO to hwy 36, but hwy 20 from I5 at Williams is good. There is a safeway store that has gasoline in Willits ON THE right side on HWY 101 at the junction of Hwy 20, probably the cheapest on that section of`Hwy. Then take 101 up to Fortuna. On the way back south, you can catch Hwy 1 at Leggit and go over to the coast.

RE: A small miss by CW installers is a big problem for me

I would bet that they would fix it but your problem is how to get it back to them so they can repair it. it is not their fault you parked in the mud in my opinion. bummer but what else can you do??

RE: Long trip issues for Newbie

I find stopping every 2 hours or every 100 miles takes care of the bladder problem before it becomes an accident. Also stretch the legs and you will feel refreshed for the next leg of your journey. One of those stops can be a fuel or meal stop. 300 miles a day give or take 25 miles, is plenty in my opinion as long as I have called ahead and reserved a spot to camp for the night. You will know when the wind gets to high then plan on stopping until it abates. Your engine computer should take care of any changes in altitude. Just don't be afraid to downshift going downhill to save your brakes.

RE: Would it be wrong to eat this?

I don't see any highways on that map, so I guess I have to use my GPS

RE: power gear levelers

On my 2004 Southwind, which is also a Fleetwood product like yours, the power gear reservoir is on the drivers side just behind the front wheel. I put the living room slide out for a better access to the reservoir. If you are adding fluid, make sure all jacks are retracted before adding any fluid. I use a Plews pump oil can with a flexible spout, filled with Dextron III and just pump in a few squirts at a time to fill.

RE: TR: Confessions of a Fly Fishing addict

Nice Trout for that lake. Sometimes it takes a long time to hook up. Looks like you shopped in Lockford. I know that lake but have not fished it in years, never did do any good, but nice place to try. Did you put a mark on the side of your float tube so you can find the same spot next time? Nice Post

RE: Onan 55 GJAB Gen Set Fuel Filter Problem

I had the same problem with the original filer leaking and did the same repair you describe using the adapter at the CARB. And it has worked for me. Have you used the primer ? Just push and hold down the "Stop/Prime" button for 20 or 30 seconds and you will hear the fuel pump click and pump fuel into the Carb. When the pump slows down, push the "Start button" until it starts. Might take 20 seconds to start. Here is a link to the adapter that takes the place of the original filter Onan adapter
