RE: Spilled Lots of Dish Soap into Gray Water Tank - An Issue?

When we volunteer we may sit for 3--4 months I only close the gray tank the day before I dump the black so when we pull out I'll drop a half cup of Dawn down the kitchen and run the hot water till it runs cold. Hit the road. That night when we stop hook up the dumpline and let the crud flow. A couple hundred miles of sloshing realy breaks it up. We try to wipe all plates, bowls and pans before washing but you still wind up with some crud going down the drain.

RE: 5th Wheel Pin Cushion (Head Protector)

Just run into it once and you will always remember to duck no need for something fancy. How do I know, that was 7 years ago.

RE: 2wd or 4x4?

Our F350 DRW 4x4 is my first 4x4 only use it about once a year, it's worth it. the cost of the 4x4 option is only the up front cost you will have lower fuel mileage but again you have it when you need it. Try calling a tow in the middle of nowhere with no cell service to even call a tow. Boondocking get the 4x4. I'm thinking about trading up and the next truck will have it as well.

RE: New awning

I have had both and rather have the manual awning. Every time I hit the button just hope it works. Manual is more sturdy, easier to adjust. I agree but the DW didn't. A man must know what battles are worth it. ;)

RE: Slide question.

Years ago all slides had the 2 inch step, flush floor slides are a later development. We have both the flush floor with the dinette and the sofa slide and the kitchen/entertainment slide with the lip. The face of the kitchen cabinets covers the lip but the entertainment section it is exposed. 7 years haven't stumped my toes cooking and DW hasn't complained when cleaning up after.

RE: Tow Vehicle Question (year recommendations)

Do you have to have a CDL to be GCVW OVER 26k? Thanks! Jeremiah As others have stated it depends what state your licensed in and 26,000 is not the trigger that requires a non commercial cdl. In many states towing over 10,000 lbs. requires it.

RE: New awning

We had one installed at the Escapee Rally last year in Vermont cost was $870 installed they use the roller and your awning fabric. The guy did a very professional job. Took about 3hrs or less. DW wanted it as she couldn't rise or lower the manual one. They would change the fabric for another $100 if you supplied it. He did not remove the lower brackets so there are no holes to repair.

RE: newb questions

I didn't see anyone mention it but you should repack the wheel bearings when you replace the tires. Some would say replace them.

RE: Tow Vehicle Question (year recommendations)

I'm only familiar with Ford, I unfortunately have a 6.4 which is B5 limited while most stations have up to B20 fuel depending on the calendar and govt regulation. If your buying used Ford diesel get a 6.7 2011 or later.

RE: chair swivel pedestal replacement

This might help. Go to Goodwill or the salvation army store and get an old chair that is similar and change the base out. Cheap repair and then take the chair and give it back. They will junk it for you I had this problem with a Lazy Boy and found a perfect match at the Salvation army store for $10 buck. Busyguy Just might get a piece of junk.

RE: Border Crossing

We crossed at Sweetgrass in 15. We overnighted in one of the last RV parks before the border so we hit the crossing early in the morning. Had one coach ahead of us, we were asked the usual questions and were on our way in 5 minutes. We had checked on what fruits,veggies,meat and other foodstuffs were prohibited so no problems at any of the crossings back and forth up north or returning to the lower 48. Eight crossings total. We had passport books not the auto cards and it was nice that they stamped them when entering at the top of the world border crossing at Poker flats.

RE: chair swivel pedestal replacement

You need to learn to google. Try "swivel chair parts" many sites for replacement parts.

RE: Icefields Pkwy (93) Banff to Jasper

We drove it both south to north and then reverse when we went to Alaska in 15. There is a fuel station about half way between Lake Louise and Jasper. The only long pull is at the Athabaskan glacier northbound we had no problem with it. Enjoy.

RE: Birds

We had a bewick's wren setup housekeeping in our hitch. We were volunteering at the time at a wildlife refuge and told we couldn't leave till the little birds fledged. They did about a week before we were set to leave.

RE: GPS route using "No Left Turn" algorithm?

Simple, every time the GPS wants you to make a left just make three rights instead. How does that work when coming to a T intersection?

RE: State Residency Question?

Is the RV lot in another state? Will it be a permanent base or just seasonal? You can have many residences but only one domicile.
