RE: Down sides to being a TT Camper?

Down sides to being a TT Camper? Not being able to pull off the road when you see something interesting along the way - like an attraction or a farmer's stand... That's why we got our B, but we still use our trailer for longer trips. As far as parking in a spot at a CG we've never had any problems with our trailer and truck. They usually have extra car parking - I suppose if your trailer takes up the whole spot you could park there.

RE: Switching From Hensley To SwayPro

Another one pushing for you to keep the Hensley... We made a couple of things to make hitching easier. These are wedges that hold those hookup arms back and out of the way: https://i.imgur.com/k5Vaawql.jpg This we use to line up the hitch head when we're having trouble in crooked angle positions: https://i.imgur.com/83g5GYdl.jpg Good luck!

RE: Replace Garmin Streetpilot 2720 with Kindle Fire 8.9

The Garmin style GPS will never be able to provide the live traffic info and POI data base available from an application like Google Maps or WAZE but neither will work on your Kindle. You will either need to hang in there with Garmin or buy a different small tablet. That's what I did. Best Buy had an 8" tablet for $89 with built in GPS and it has worked great as my primary GPS device in the RV.Which app do you use with it?

RE: Downsizing

Not to be argumentative, but other than length, you can have the same problems with any rig. We have a 40' DP with a toad and have no problems finding fuel and we don't use the high priced truck stops. This last ear we went from AZ to FL and MN to LA. Bill You will almost certainly have fewer problems with a Class B than any other type of RV. 100% factory drive train from GM, Ford or Mercedes. No need to pull anything. If you want to stay parked somewhere for a while and want to get around, rent a car. We will be doing just that at spring training in FL in a few weeks. Or get an Uber - that's what we did at Niagara Falls and it worked out great!

RE: Question

pasusan: Can you elaborate on how you created that smaller pillow? That's what I've been considering doing but wasn't sure how. I'd guess one could easily gain 6"s.I took apart a regular pillow and used about a third of the stuffing. I sewed a tube of cloth about 8 inches in diameter with round pieces of cloth sewed on the ends. Then I stuffed and closed the tube. I use a regular pillow case with the stuffed tube in sideways and then roll that up and use velcro to keep it closed. That way I can remove and wash the pillow case. Hope that helps - don't know if that description makes enough sense... :)

RE: Question

One thing to keep in mind is the pillow takes up unnecessary room at the head of the bed. My DH is 6'2" and he fits in our bed which is a sideways bed in the back of our Roadtrek. I made a custom pillow that is shaped like a tootsie roll and he is happy as a lark.

RE: Is it time to change you water heater anode?

I never change mine. But come to think of it I don't have one either. I guess that means you have one of those off brand water heater. I'll take a suburban heater any day over that other brand Those non suburban water heaters ( Atwood) have an aluminum tank. My 2003 coachmen that I sold 2015 never had an issue. They don't need anodes. I would of preferred an Attwood aluminum over the steel tank suburban anyday....Weez agreez... The water heater in our 1990 trailer still works perfectly - Atwood. The water heater in our Roadtrek needs yearly anode attention and it sometimes has stinky water - Suburban.

RE: Got a really neat Xmas gift

For 1 or 2 cups, use a French Press. Have a drip at home but while camping we use a French Press also. Wife bought me a vacuum insulated press about 15 years ago an it works perfect for us. Better coffee than the drip at home. We usually camp 6-7 weeks a year.We did use a French Press while out on the road - but the cleanup was hard - used too much water. We got a manual k-cup press similar to the OP's last year and we love it!

RE: Well, today it happened!! ~Updated~

Thanks to everyone with well wishes for my dilemma. Dealer got it all tore down (cab is 9 feet in the air!!) and diagnosed the problem. CP4 exploded taking out the injectors and filling the fuel system with metal filings. I can't believe how Ford Motor Co and Lithia Ford of Boise treated me!! So very surprised after all the horror stories of not covering these. Everything covered, no problem!! Gave me a new 4x4 F 150 loaner. So relieved. But I would never trust that truck again. And if I lost another pump I bet it would be a real problem to get it covered again. I went back yesterday and got a '16 F250 6.2 GAS. CC, 6.5 box, FX4 loaded Lariat. Real Creampuff with 14K miles. I thought I was really going to pay for this but I was more than ecstatic with the deal. Today I am driving a beautiful Pearl White Lariat while the old one is still in the shop with all it's guts out!!! How do you spell relief? :BROLAIDS! Good luck with the new one DJ!

Williamsburg timing

We're thinking of stopping in Williamsburg the second week of April. I thought it would be less crowded while school is still in session, but DH thinks it will be busy with school field trips. Anybody have any recommendations or ideas? When is the best time to visit if you're not thrilled with crowds?

RE: what roof vent to use

I have looked on line and the two versions I see are a spinning one by Camco called the Cyclone and one Called RV 360. I would guess the cyclone would work better. What are thoughts, or experiences With these products. Is there a other one that may work better?We have the Cyclone and are happy with it. One - it looks cool, and two - it works as a weather vane.

RE: Greetings from Erie, PA

OP here - I fixed the picture - yesterday when I was posting this the imgur photo hosting wasn't working so I used Google Photos which only works some of the time - not all of the time... Sorry. sayoung - a whiteout is when it is snowing hard while you're driving and you can't see but 2 feet. Very scary!!! Gdetrailer - thanks for the good wishes - all of PA is getting some today! mat60 - you've got it cold - going to be in the negatives for a while! GordonThree - don't be jealous - this is a bit too much snow and it will be hanging around since there's no warm up in the foreseeable forecast. Any new snow will just add up and we're a little nervous about the barn roof as there is a cracked beam (that's been repaired) where our tow vehicle is stored. Haven't heard of any roofs caving in - but there have been reports of decks collapsing. 1995brave - looks like we just missed you - we moved here 40 years ago from MD. Had no idea what lake effect snow was - never even heard of it. :)

Greetings from Erie, PA

There's been some talk about us, so thought I'd share. Not to worry - this is just a bit more than what we're used to. We still have power - only went out a couple of times for a couple of minutes. That was a little scary when it's hanging around 10 degrees outside! Our trash pick-up and mail delivery did not come on Tuesday, but everything's pretty much back to normal now. This is looking off our back porch on Tuesday, 12/26. We already did lots of clean up on Monday, but had more snow overnight. Then we did more clean up and had more snow after this. Thank goodness for our snowblower... https://i.imgur.com/VpAtDHul.jpg This is RV related as our trailer and tow vehicle are snug in the barn and our B is safe in the garage. Thankfully the snow didn't extend too far south so our daughter had a good trip back home to Virginia on Wednesday.

RE: Niagara falls

Last summer we stayed at Branches of Niagara on Grand Island and took Uber to and from the Falls. It was fun and hassle free.

RE: RV Loan Interest Deduction yes or no?

Don't know why nobody has read the actual wording of the bill. Here it is: "The conference agreement provides that, in the case of taxable years beginning after December 31, 2017, and beginning before January 1, 2026, a taxpayer may treat no more than $750,000 as acquisition indebtedness ($375,000 in the case of married taxpayers filing separately). In the case of acquisition indebtedness incurred before December 15, 2017162 this limitation is $1,000,000 ($500,000 in the case of married taxpayers filing separately).163 For taxable years beginning after December 31, 2025, a taxpayer may treat up to $1,000,000 ($500,000 in the case of married taxpayers filing separately) of indebtedness as acquisition indebtedness, regardless of when the indebtedness was incurred. Additionally, the conference agreement suspends the deduction for interest on home equity indebtedness. Thus, for taxable years beginning after December 31, 2017, a taxpayer may not claim a deduction for interest on home equity indebtedness. The suspension ends for taxable years beginning after December 31, 2025. Effective date.?The provision is effective for taxable years beginning after December 31, 2017." These are the changes from what we have now. True - The House of Representatives' version did get rid of the second home interest deduction, but not the Senate's version. And the final bill is what was agreed between them - what is stipulated above. (Yes, I've read the entire 1097 page bill... Just kidding!)

RE: Salt and Pepper Shakers

Rubbermaid used to make them with a flip up top. We've had a set for many years and are still using them. They're also great at keeping moisture out.Same here - we've had a set for many years and when we got our class B I found another set - new in box - on ebay. Like these: https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/UcEAAOSwldRaNp0h/s-l1600.jpg width=400
