RE: Ants

You should keep the liquid ant bait under all the sinks and the couch in the RV at all times. That will 'prevent' you from being over run by the pesky southern ants. Every time you park sprinkle "powered" Sevin (can be found at Tractor Supply stores)all around the tires of your RV and everything that touches the ground. Make sure you sprinkle it on and over all cords and water hoses coming from your RV. http://www.gardentech.com/~/media/Images/GardenTech/Products/Large/GT_ReadyToUse_Dust.ashx?mh=335&mw=340 height=125 width=200 And 'never leave anything propped up against the side of your MH. Being proactive like you requested IS the best way to keep these ants out of an RV. If allowed to come in and flourish it takes 'weeks' to get rid of them. Being a newbie first time in Florida I didn't know all of this and was over run by ants in the MH. :( After buying just about every ant bait this is the only one that really worked. "Liquid' ant bait. Make sure to keep away from your pets. http://woodstream.scene7.com/is/image/woodstream/us-bt300-1?$MediaPgLarge$ height=200 width=200 If you do all of the above you should be free of ants. So head on down south the weather is fine! :C

RE: Why do we carry a spare tire around?

.... if I don't have a tire at the ready, I'm going to be stuck for at least 24 hours. 80lbs less in stuff is well worth 24 hours of my life. X2

RE: Here are some campers you have probably never seen

Who can't forget this one where an RV backs up into the water!

RE: Now I need to understand

Hey now..he's broken down in Cheyenne, Wyoming..he's bored and looking to pass the time. Besides Wal*mart and tire discussions, Good Sam discussions usually get a few pages of back and forths...give the guy a break, and let's talk...he did bring up a few good points even though the initial post was taken care of...Dennis Ok. No one EVER wants to be broken down with an RV what a bummer. :( OP. Read your post about it and who you used to tow it. Was the Dodge tow for free with your warranty? ""Now I called the Chrysler/Dodge road side Assistance and they had a tow truck to me within an hour and towed me and my trailer to the KOA in Cheyenne and then my truck to the dealer. At the dealer they ordered a new rear axle assembly while I stood there and put me in a brand new Dodge Durango FREE. They apologized for not having a 3/4 ton truck for me so I could continue my trip! Along with the fact that the Dodge warranty is a good long one on the drive train, 100,000 miles and 3/36 on the rest of the truck with this road side assistance and the free car it really took the sting out of the whole debacle.I have been very impressed with the way this has been handled so far.Makes me wonder how GSE RSA might compare?..." Well I don't think GS would be giving you a free car anytime soon or ever! Glad everything worked out so well for a breakdown.

RE: Why do we carry a spare tire around?

...In any event, those of you who won't get in a car without a spare had better start shopping for hiking shoes. They are rapidly becoming a thing of the past:http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/news/2014/08/your-next-car-may-not-have-a-spare-tire/index.htm All that means is that the 'consumer' has to now pay for a spare. All I can add is those that say; "I haven't had a flat in x amount of miles". It only takes ONCE. And that once is what 'insurance' is for. Whether it be for an accident that you haven't had in 20 years or a flat tire. :C If your vehicle engine breaks down you are in for a tow. ERS is not going to repair an engine part on the road. BUT. They WILL repair a flat tire on the road "IF" you have one with you. Seems like a no brainer to carry a spare when RV'ing. Who the heck wants to sit on the side of the road with your RV during a vacation because you felt there was no need to carry a spare? And check your ERS contract I don't believe they will pay for a tow for a flat tire.

RE: How to get a driver license in FL

Just changing your address on a couple of credit cards is not going to fly. You have to show utility bills with your address on it.

RE: Now I need to understand

I think it's interesting that whenever a policy of GS Enterprises gets called into question on this forum over an issue with some aspect of the club or the RSA or anything else, the topic gets closed. In this case I was still waiting for an answer on the topic "Help Me Understand" that made sense. That topic was posted by Ohiojude. He received this response by GS. ..."Ohiojude, Thank you for your post. If you have a Good Sam Roadside Assistance that was purchased from one of our dealerships, you are not able to register this membership online. This membership is still valid, and can be used for Roadside Assistance, it is just not able to be registered for added access on the website. Please let me know if you have any further questions. Nate K.Marcus' Rapid Response Team..." So why are YOU still waiting for an answer. :?

RE: Why do we carry a spare tire around?

Why do we carry a spare tire around? In case of a flat or blown tire.:C Most of us can't change a tire on an RV but we all have ERS and they need to have a tire to replace the one that is flat. I would not put any vehicle I own in drive without a spare tire on board. Safety Insurance. 1. Not all emergency road service tow trucks have shops that carry tires. And no if you don't have a spare on board they will not drive to a tire shop to get you one either. 2. I certainly would not want to be stranded alone or with my family on the side of a rural road because I didn't have a spare on board. 3. There are several different types of bumper mounted spare tire holders and ones that slide into your hitch that allow you to carry a spare on an RV. This is the one I use. Which allows me to also use it for carrying my ex-pens, lawn chair and or bikes. http://images.campingworld.com/is/image/CWI/20000/25898.jpg?wid=325&hei=325&op_sharpen=1&layer=1&src=CWI/logo.gif&s

RE: How to get a driver license in FL

Definitely go to the Florida DMV site first. Since the inception of the wonderful ID Act you now have to have numerous pieces of ID to get a DL. Been there did that this month what a pain. And THEN come to find out that there are impact fees 'on top' of the base fee of registering your vehicle if coming from out of state. $500 to register just my car. :(

RE: what are the best super c RV manufacturers

IMHO Renegade and Haulmark are the two best ones.

RE: AC Issues - Sorry long.

It runs for awhile and cools. Shuts off and immediately starts again. Runs for a short time and then shuts off again. Immediately starts again. Not sure if this is called cycling. You hear the fan come on first and then the compressor seems to kick in. Cold air flowing. It runs for about 3 minutes then it completely shuts down. Then it starts again. There is cold air blowing when it is on. If it is the thermostat, would that affect the furnace as well? Thanks for all your suggestions. It would be nice if it wasn't the Freon. We have never cleaned the ac unit after 4 years wintering in Florida. We do have the rig serviced every year but my guess is, that has never included cleaning the air conditioner. We obviously need to do more research about what rv maintenance should include. When you can't do it yourself you rely on the people in the know to tell you. We are learning. That is not a freon problem. Sounds more like a thermostat problem. Have you tried changing the temp on the thermostat and see if it still happens at different settings? And did you check the coach battery and the connections? I would definitely not use the service guy you had out. All his vent suggestions sounded like he didn't know what he was doing. If you are at a CG go up to the desk and ask who they use for Mobile Repair. The stupid ones don't last long being allowed in the park. Hang in there it really doesn't sound like it's a serious repair.:C

RE: Cruise/speed control not working

Hmm... after i got the cruise working, that was to be my next topic. My overdrive button does nothing. When I push it, the OFF does not light up as it is supposed to. I thought that when the vehicle experienced transmission issues the OD OFF light is supposed to flash? What happened to me, was doing 70mph down the interstate and the tow mode button light came 'ON' all by itself while I was driving and it sounded like I left the trans on the road! I would take it a Ford Dealer. Since it is a known problem they had my steering wheel off 'in the parking lot' no need to pull it in so you can go to just a Ford car dealership service dept. They had the steering wheel off in seconds to see if the wires had come loose. Real interesting was after I had it fixed I had more gauges show up on the dash and some in different colors then when I pulled in!

RE: Milwaukee Area RV Parks

They are not in the sense a state park designed for recreational camping. Each state has a big state fair grounds AND all little local towns usually have their own fairgrounds facility. Fair grounds are used all year long for events and the 'exhibitors' and 'vendors' have LQ's, TT's or MH's so that is why there are hookups for RV's at fair grounds. I used to show horses which is how I know where to find the dump stations at the grounds that don't have full hookups. Best one I stayed at was at the Iowa State Fairgrounds. Over a 1,000 CG sites with full hookups.....I was the only one parked there in the off season! :C Worst one was Florida's State Fair. Don't stay there 'during' the fair! They don't require sewer donuts and whew did it smell.

RE: Leaky camper shell windows.

BEFORE you start sealing them up CHECK the weep holes in the frame of the window. 9 times out of 10 they are clogged up with dirt and debris and the water can't drain out and it comes inside the RV.

RE: Milwaukee Area RV Parks

Cliffside is a nice park but has the disadvantage, which it shares with state parks, of having no full hookups. Staying "a week or so" means you'll be having to leave the campsite to dump periodically (unless your MH has huge waste tanks!) :) Not necessarily so! I stay at the Wisconsin State Fair Grounds when I am in town and they have several dump stations. ALL Fair Grounds have dump stations on the grounds. You just have to look for it as it is not advertised with signs pointing to it. They are always located up against a wall near the horse/cattle barns. All it is is a cap on top of the sewer pipe and usually is a metal cap. I stay at Fair Ground CG's across the US as often as I can. I love em and the price is right! :C

RE: Cruise/speed control not working

That year and a couple of others had problems with the cruise and tow mode button in gear shift. The problem being loose wires INSIDE the steering wheel. Yup that's where they put them. I would take it to a Ford Dealership. That's what I did when no one else could figure it out and they went straight for the loose wire in the steering wheel. They said it could be one of two things. Loose wire in steering wheel or torque converter. Sadly I found out my tow mode button failure was due to a bad torque converter. :(

RE: Question about running a carfax report on an rv.

They are not under any mandate to report to carfax. It is NOT a end all be all way to check a vehicles history. Some states like California smog stations do have to report it but again not all states do the same. If something shows up it's a bonus to have the info that's all.

RE: laundry

Just be aware that they are very small. You have to do small loads and IMHO forget it if you wear jeans. Takes for ever to dry and you can only put one maybe two in. So it's a lot of small loads often. So it's a no for me. When I need to do laundry I look for a CG that has one and load up that big washer with ALL my clothes at ONE time. Go back to the MH for a cold one and then head back to stuff it all in one dryer and head back and have another cold one! Doesn't everyone do it that way?! :B
