RE: water pump silencing kits - do they work

I have the rubber mounts, soft hoses, foam insulation and accumulator tank. I can still here the pump...We have done all that too and the pump is definitely much quieter. One time we were parked in a somewhat noisy parking lot having lunch and did not hear the pump as it emptied the FW tank because one of the low point drain valves was leaking. But, I still prefer it quieter.

RE: Is it going to end ?

^^ Wow - I never heard of that... I am like loulou - I don't handle hot well. Our first trip got set back a month so we are going south at the end of May / beginning of June. Now I'm scared!!! We like camping, hiking, and site seeing in the 60s. Not 80s and heaven forbid 90s. Oh, and it's snowing here too. :(

RE: stink bugs

Homemade Stinkbug TrapI made one of these and keep it in the trailer. Once I made this I never saw another stink bug. It really works! Seriously, I am ready if and when it happens to us again that we get them. And the ones we got did not freeze over the winter - the next spring they came out of the woodwork.

RE: Quick Simple Dinners?

We've got an easy meal that we've used for many years camping. It's Dinti Moore Beef Stew with lots of extra canned vegetables added. When we camp with our grown son he still asks for that. You can pick your size of cans to make however much you want. Pretty quick and simple.

RE: Kumho Radial 857 as travel trailer replacement tire

What size ST tire did you replace? Are you now using the 185 size tire? Where are the tires made? Thanks. Yes, I went to the 185 size, because I needed to keep the overall diameter to nearly the same size as what I had from the factory ( 205/75-14 Freestar ST ), due to under trailer clearance. Since these Kumho tires are a taller profile ( 82 series vs the OE tires being 75 series )the narrower 185 comes out to within 2/10 inch of the diameter of the 205/75. The 185 is just under 1/2" narrower at the tread ( as I measured, compared to the OE tires ) This size was made in Korea. I believe the other sizes are made in either china or vietnam.Our size: 195R14C was also made in Korea. Wouldn't have bought them if made in China. They have the sizes and country of origin listed in the specs on TireRack.com

RE: Kumho Radial 857 as travel trailer replacement tire

We have Kumho 195R14C tires on our trailer. After having blowout after blowout with Carlisle tires that were 4 years old we researched and came up with the Kumho 857s. We also have a TPMS and our psi is always right on. We run them lower than the sidewall says at 44 psi as the plate on our trailer says to use 35 psi in the tires - we compromised. Our trailer GVWR is 4000 lbs. We've had them since 2009 and I just went to look at them - the tread is fine and even and no sidewall cracking yet. They seem to be quality tires, they weren't made in China, and we just might want to go 99 mph! ;)

RE: Sky Deck Renovation

A lot of us love to see make-overs and rebuilds... Could you tell us what your plan is - why you are tearing it all down? Most rebuilds are because of water damage, but that doesn't seem to be the case here. :)

RE: Interstate Bathroom....er....etiquette

:S Would you open the door to your 'home' if some stranger walked up and rang the bell and asked to use your bathroom?? So why on earth would the fact that it is your RV make anyone think it's ok to let some stranger in your RV to relieve themselves? :RActually, I have. It was 2 young girls who were walking through the woods and had an "emergency" and luckily came upon our house. And as others have mentioned...on the highway I suppose it would depend on the circumstances and who it was that came to the door.

RE: Strange energy field around a RV?

I think there's more to it than that. An astonishing number of folks are barely brave enough to venture out into the wilds, but not brave enough to enjoy it. We once owned a house on a quiet cul de sac at the edge of town. Lots were acre-and-a-half, and although there was a house directly across the street, there were empty lots on either side and several hundred acres of woods behind. One couple who came to look at it had told their realtor they wanted seclusion, but the wife expressed her horror over the isolation and that she could never live so far from civilization. So the answer to your question is "yes," but it's worse than you know. The only way I know to counteract that energy field is to present your rig as the most terrifying spot on the 500 acre field. Fly a giant skull & crossbones pirate flag, or a confederate flag, scatter empty beer cans liberally around, fire a shotgun wildly in the air when you see 'em comin', and chase your SO, around the RV several laps, both of you nearly naked and screaming at the top of your lungs. And if you can have 3 or 4 pitbulls barking loudly in the scrum, that will help, too.This reminds me of years ago, we were camping with our kids in a beautiful, primitive CG in the Allegheny National Forest. The kids (responsible and able to do this alone) were starting a campfire while we grownups went for a walk in the woods. We started seeing major plumes of smoke coming from the CG area so we rushed back to see what was going on. Our son said - Nothing wrong... We just didn't want the newcomers to set up next to us so we added wet leaves to the fire to make lots of smoke. And it worked - they picked a spot pretty far away.

RE: Strange energy field around a RV?

Does the "first parked" RV at a 500 acre overnight spot emit an energy field that immediately attracts more vehicles to snuggle up near it, instead of park over there 1/2 mile away? You don't need to be in a 500 acre park to experience the phenomenon! The "No Door Dings" syndrome: Just park your new car or truck -or old one you try to keep pristine- in an empty parking lot, well away from whatever store you plan to visit. *Guaranteed* there will be a car, SUV, truck or a "beater" parked on either side of you in short order - while the rest of the parking lot is still empty..:( ~That is so true! We make sure to park *really* far away whenever possible... https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-FbMo-ITDLK8/UXlrYABO4yI/AAAAAAAAG_4/sscKsPVP7z4/s640/Adirondacks-066.jpg width=620

Peppermint oil cotton balls will also keep squirrels out of your bird feeders .Also? Did you read where that didn't work for the OP? :h

RE: Counter Space!! Where is it?? 15 1/4"??

Is it just me? Or are there others that have next to sweet nothing for counter real estate? My TT is 27 feet long. You'd think they could give me a little more than just room to butter a slice of bread! I have next to .... struggling for a polite term here.... Next to nothing for counter space. From my stove to my sink is 15 1/4 inches. Thats it! I mean sure I can use the fold down thing on my stove top, but not when I'm cooking. Or my table top, but I don't want to use that for food preparation either. My laptop sits there and the current paperwork, leaving room for a dinner plate and a cold one! And I don't have one of those counter top things that fits in the sink hole either Yup! 15 1/4" of countertop space, thats it! Is it just me? Or do you guys have 4/5ths of nothing there too? Oh, and there is a 2 inch strip to the left of my stove. What do I do with that besides wipe it when I wash dishes?What are you complaining about??? I think I've only got 5!! But, I do use one of the sink covers and I've got a flip up extension at the other end of the sink (but of course you can't go in and out of the door with it flipped up). https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-x_nfIs6oVh0/Td46MJcBLTI/AAAAAAAABSg/ddjsECWy5Xk/s640/P5110042.JPG width=620

RE: Question for those with the Progressive hardwired surge?

I'm just wondering what shore power and flipping breakers has to do with a NYS inspection. :h Must be way different than PA - here they check the hitch connection, tires and brakes, then pull the breakaway cable and tell you to try to drive forward. Never plugged it in to shore power...

RE: Backing up whole computer

It mentions nothing about recent accelerated testing of modern consumer optical recordables? Which shown to last 10, 20, 40+ years based on type of recordable and brand, and proper storage. Do you have a link to that testing? It sounds interesting. But, will there be any functioning optical drives around in 10 or 20 years? There's already speculation on how long before, not if, optical storage becomes obsolete. I have direct experience with writeable discs failing after several years of storage--in cases, upright, in a drawer. I'm just saying, IMHO, home-burned discs are not a reliable long term option for archiving important stuff.Wow - you must not use Verbatim then. ;)

RE: campgrounds in/around Buffalo NY

Here is a little known CG that we have used while visiting Buffalo: Ballard's Camping Center 5849 Southwestern Boulevard, Hamburg, NY Local - 716-649-9654 Toll Free - 1-888-236-4365 ballardscampingcenter.com It's an RV store with a small CG behind it... It is about 20 minutes to downtown. It is not a well known or fancy place, but the easiest into the city that we have found. The site we had had water, electric and a pipe in the ground for grey water - no black. They do have a dump station though, so wasn't a problem for us. Don't tell anyone else about this place as it is our secret. ;) Good luck!

RE: Pork and Beans

I don't think anyone's mentioned using a crock pot... We use pork and beans for when we go out all day so that dinner is ready when we get back. We have a small crock pot like this: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/61H-Eci-xTL._SX522_.jpg width=200 just 1.5 qt since it's just the 2 of us (and it's small and we don't have lots of room). I put in 2 cans of pork and beans and a drained can of butter beans - add a little BBQ sauce and mix up a bit. Top with a couple chicken breasts or pork chops. Spread some BBQ sauce on top and let 'er go.

RE: How do I FIX Oxidized Plastic/ Resin Chair ?

We use 303 aerospace protectantX2 - we have revived lots of outdoor plastic with this. Sending to the landfill is our very last option.

Does your dog follow the rules when you're not home?

Here's a dog that knows the rules very well. Not allowed on the bed. I saw this video this morning and laughed my head off... :B
