RE: Kayak Rack for a Hitch Hauler

The kayak racks I have seen for sale are outrageously expensive! I'm making one almost the same as this one. Cargo carrier two milk crates, a double hitch extender, and a bike rack.... I just need someone with a welder....

RE: stopping for a single night - rest area or rv park?

Is it worth the hassle to set up everything for a single night in an RV park or just layover at the rest area for 4-6 hrs of sleep? Why can't you "just layover" at a RV park and get a nice quiet restful sleep and not listen to highway noise all night? I have stayed at KOA's so close to the highway that i could hear the radio inside the cars going by!

RE: Rest Areas in NC and ONP

We just got back from a cross country trip, and we stayed in some very nice rest stops. Never felt like we were in danger. I will tell you this, if you are in I40 heading west and think about a rest stop in Arkansas.... forget it. Most are closed due to remodeling... according to the signs... Ohio has nice rest stops. Funny thing I saw in a Ohio rest stop was a 40 ft diesel pusher class A with all 4 slides out, the generator running, the satellite dish up and the front steps out.... we never put the slide out! We run the generator for the microwave if needed and shut it down. We are there only to eat and sleep... not to camp

best time of year......

To visit Florida? We will be taking our annual 2 week road trip next year to Florida! Going to the gulf breeze area and the keys, Disney etc... I figured that this forum would be a good place to ask which months are best and why.... Thanks! :)

RE: Brand of scooter carrier

This is the one we have. http://www.discountramps.com/smc-600-motorcycle-hauler/p/SMC-600R/ We just got back from a 5300 mile round trip vacation with my wifes Suzuki Boulevard S40 on it the entire way. We went from the east coast to the grand canyon, and back and It was stable and never gave me any concern at all. My motorhome is 31 feet long with a Class 3 hitch the carrier weighs 88lbs and my wifes motorcycle weighs 380. The front of my motohome NEVER felt too light, and it did NOT affect the steering of my motorhome. I checked the carrier, tie downs, and the anti-sway device that comes with the carrier every day before we hit the road after the nights rest, and it was fine each time i checked. This carrier performed extremely well on all the nastiest roads i have ever encountered..... Im glad we bought it and it will be standard equipment on every trip we take now. ( i cant get the hyperlink function to work, so just google SMC-600R. And you should find it)

Cudos to Lippert components customer service

I noticed yesterday that my Kwikee steps were stopping halfway up... Well, it is intermittent, and i got under there with some slide out lube and lubed it up and all seems ok for now. BUT i also noticed that 2 of the 10mm bolts holding the motor onto the gearbox were GONE. :E. So i called lippert to see what kind of bolts they were. I spoke to a rep that stayed on the phone with me for at least 30 mins until he found the correct bolt size (10MM head, M6x1 thread, 40mm length). So, with that info, off to the hardware store i went, got so e bolts for a whopping 1.00, and some blue locktite.... I am glad this happened at home... Glad the motor didnt fall off en route somewhere... But the rep at lippert really went over and above.

Hehr window trim?

On our 2006 we have Hehr windows and there is a white vinyl insert that is on the exterior of the window. I am guessing to cover the screws? Anyways, i have searched the web trying to find replacement vinyl since ours is old , faded and actually blotchy looking from grime etc.. I just cant find what it is called or pics of my windows to do a comparison. I will try to call Hehr and see what its called and how to replace etc. but in the meantime has anyone else replaced theirs?

RE: Traveling with a scooter on Class C

Few... we have a 31 ft class c and carry a Suzuki Boulevard S40 (650cc) our hitch is rated at 500lbs tongue weight. The carrier weighs 88lbs, (the carrier is rated for 650lbs) and the bike around 375lbs the rv has Helwig helper springs on the rear axle also. (Not sure if a previous ower put them on or the factory) I really don't feel it back there. I will more than likely do what another person said and add more side support. But it does work and if you think about it, the v10 in the front of the rv weighs more than that probably, along with the class c overhang, etc. But be safe.

crock pot cooking

We are wondering if the inverter that is factory installed in our rv (400 watts) would handle a small crock pot while we are driving? The inverter runs the TV plug only, so of course we would unplug that and only have the crock pot on that while in use. ( I already did the mod that keeps the plug on when the ignition is on) Thanks!

elastomeric covering on TPO roof?

My 2006 Greyhawk came with a TPO roof from the factory, I'm the third owner so I'm not sure about the warranty, and luckily I have no leaks. But, when anything happens, can elastomeric coating be put on the TPO membrane?

waxing RV

I have a class C, with a front fiberglass cap. The rest of the coach is probably filon. What can I use on the filon to bring the gloss back? And what you guys recommended for the front cap? I'm not sure about using the ZEP floor wax on the front cap, I've heard that it will yellow over time

RE: Coleman stoves and lanterns multiplying!

Just on a side note, my local walmart has stopped stocking coleman liquid fuel (which was around 12.00 a gallon last time i looked). And has now started stocking Crown liquid camp fuel, which is around 8.00 a gallon. Yay! I have 30 lanterns and 22 stoves, and they are a thirsty bunch! :B It's not an addiction, it's a hobby.... Thats what i tell my wife. :W

RE: I40 west roadside must sees?

Heading west from mammoth caves KY, on I40 to the grand canyon in the fall and was wondering about sites to see along the way. DISCLAIMER... We will be moving right along, and not really doing more than overnights to get out to the grand canyon asap. Thats why i was just asking about roadside attractions etc... Thx! You could just skip all this and drive on into The Grand Canyon with the Herds of people and only see a small fraction of what is out there. Or you could drive in from the east catch just a couple of the many unbelievable spots that on along the route to the Grand Canyon. Hopefully you drove all this way to see more than just the Grand Canyon? Next question what are you going to drive by on the way home? Do you have a route - more things to see. IMHO the trip should be as good as the destination. BOL, We are visiting mammoth cave in ky then going west on I40 grand canyon is the first big destination, then lower antelope canyon, then monument valley, then four corners monument, then mesa verde, then moab, then arches national park then head east into colorado, to see red rocks, and rocky mountain national park, then play it by ear on the way back to RI last year some of thebest places we visited were the spur of the moment stops on the way back! Best place in my mind was Laura Ingalls Wilder homestead in DeSmet South Dakota... 23 miles off the interstate on a dirt road in the middle of quiet and serene cornfields....... Most beautiful sunset ive seen in a long time
