RE: Black tank smell?

This might be a log shot. But had anyone ever had luck with the pour in leak fixers? We used one on our hot tub and it worked really well. It may freeze up your dump valve and nothing else. Most likely leak in a black tank is at the top where it is connected or the dump valve itself which may be the valve seals. Those seals can be replaced.

RE: Help me understand my GVWR

Just wait the weight police will be here shortly. For good information go to the thread sticky in tow vehicles about weight law.

RE: Why Did You Go Where You Went And When

Our first year we were camp hosts at a local state park from there we made our first snowbird journey to Florida again as camp hosts. I had never been to the PNW so we sought and found a volunteer position in Oregon the following summer. We enjoyed it so much we returned the following year after spending the winter in Texas. We toured while traveling between these locations. After our second summer in Oregon we returned to Florida for the winter the following summer we volunteered with USACE in West Virginia then returned to Florida for the winter. The following summer we volunteered in New Jersey and then headed to Kansas and Amazon for their busy Christmas season then on to Texas for the winter. We headed to Alaska last spring and spent 3 1/2 months before heading south visiting family before another stint at Amazon in Tennessee then Florida for the winter. Right now we're in eastern West Virginia/Maryland checking out some of the history before a return to New Jersey for a summer volunteer position. Our plans for next winter is to travel I10 from Florida to the west coast because we can. We're looking for a location next summer that will be in the line of the eclipse next August most likely Wyoming because we want to.

RE: Pay as you go?

Can anyone share the cost of Dish pay as you go programming? What do you mean by share?

RE: Slideout was stuck and bottom torn?

One of the bolt/screws that holds the roller may have backed out, happened on one of mine.

RE: Traveling By RV: How to Reduce Your Expenses

Whodathunk preparing meals in your RV was cheaper than going out to eat.... That's a new one on me. Mike That's what I tell DW, but she gets tired of beans and franks.

RE: New fifth wheel drove home need to return to dealer

You need to elaborate. Height of automatic jacks??? Pin to tire distance??? X1, If I understand your problem, one solution is to adjust the 5th. wheel hitch to it's highest level and reverse the axles so they are located under the springs. Not a big deal and you might even ask the dealer to do it for you as a customer satisfaction effort. +1 Plus a little back and forth practice should take care of the length problem.

RE: Glad we didn't quit over high gas prices.

We started fulltime in 2010 we kept our travels down to 3000 miles a year figured .50 cents a mile. Last year we did Alaska 15000 miles round trip fuel was still $3.50 north of the border. We're back to our old travel pattern but at .26 cents per mile.

RE: Tire Pressure for G Rated Tires

I keep my G614's at 110 psi. I'm 12,500 on the axles but know the kitchen/entertainment slide is heavier haven't weighed side to side.

RE: Bolts in floor

That's very odd. I think you're better of starting below, see if you can tighten the nut (assuming it's below at least) you could hold the bolt from below too, depending on how much room there is. Might add a nylock nut underneath too so it doesn't back out again. +1

RE: Oven ?

An old tooth brush. I sometimes have the same problem. I light the pilot light with a long butane bar-b-que lighter and if it doesn't light the burner right away I'll hit the burner with the lighter. The problem I think is it takes a minute for the thermocoupler heat up to open the valve.

RE: Using foam in a can to fill gaps

I prefer a gob of silicone caulk.

RE: Levelling Fifth Wheel Side to Side

Come on guys this is not rocket science. Jack it up like you were changing a tire, add the needed shim under that tire then do the same to the other.

RE: Eventually

Get a ladder out and check the caulking on the roof where it meets the side wall especially at the corners. Remember there is a lot of sway while driving down the road that is magnified at the top of your slide even when stowed. Water has a funny way of finding it way down to its exit, it may stop at the floor unseen then puddle and wick up the wall seeming like it entered lower than it really has.

RE: Smart tiles

I installed the smart tiles 2 years ago. I guarantee rough roads have no effect on them after our Alaskan trip last summer.

RE: Am I the only one bothered by a pet charge at RV parks?

If they have a leash free dog area I'm fine with the fee.

RE: Full time in smaller RV

We're run into singles in Scamps and Truck Campers a little to tight for me much less for two but our fifthwheel interior is 33 1/2 ft from the front of the closet to the rear window 35 ft overall, we do have 3 slides, and we've been fine fulltiming in it for 6 years. We try to stay in state of federal campgrounds when possible and have always found a site, we seldom use reservations, though I do check availability on reserve america like the night before. I figure if there are sites many unreserved we'll get one if we stop early which we normally do by 3:00 pm.

RE: Charleston, SC

Try KOA not my favorite but close to what you want to see. We drove past it while we were workcampers at Francis Marion NF and we were 17 miles away at Wambaw Swamp HOV trails. Or you could try here: Buck Hall USFS campground
