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

RE: What is this refer drain hose part called?

When I built my trailer I installed a fan that was mounted above the coil in the exhaust vent that would pull air from the bottom of the fridge up through the coils and outside the rig. . What he said! The fridge normally works using convection, hot air rises and as it does draws cold air up and the cycle is repeated constantly. Place the fan up on top to pull the cold air up over the coils and in turn help vent the hot air

RE: What are your rules for the awning?

When we leave...close the awning and shut off the water at the spigot. X2

RE: Inexpensive small waste tote

Judging by the picture, and your description, I don't get how water can flow downhill and fill this up. Easy. :B https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/07J8aEwuFllt_h1N-CT9-3IjJGakJhpH5eichN1GXxUA10MiyNkWKgYhiCeoiGcPbuNnTJD8Mkqn=w1000-h623-no height=280 width=500 Instead of a Hydroller I use a set of 7 gal Aquatainers labeled for the purpose. Capacity is limited only by the number of 'Tainers. Works like a charm. :) I had a pop up with a shower/toilet and i used two of these aquatainers one for the shower water, and one for the sink water, they are cheap and they work, BUT they are heavy!! 8lb per 1gallon of water... I would recommend a collapsible cart to transport them to the proper disposal facilities at the campground

RE: Handy Hints, Gadgets, Products & Gizmos

Something i have done on our previous camper and now our class c.. I get a roll of actual aluminum duct tape, ( the metal kind for sealing ductwork). And i use it as a reflector material in my rv's tail lights and marker lights. If you have the normal "bargman" brand tail lights that most rv's come with as standard equipment, then you probably know that they seriously lack any kind of relective material in the light housing. And most of the markers lights dont have any at all behind the bulbs! I just take the lenses off, cut the tape to fit, stick it on and instant reflector! And for the marker lights just do the same thing. You will notice a difference. One person i told about this was skeptical until i asked him if he ever saw a car taillight without a reflector inside the lense....

RE: Handy Hints, Gadgets, Products & Gizmos

The paper towels would always unroll while driving in our class C. So i took a 2 litre soda bottle washed it out, cut the top and bottom off to make a tube, then cut the tube lengthwise, viola! Instant paper towel clamp...

RE: de-mousing

I had signs of a mouse in my camper this winter, got 4 snap traps and used chewed up tootsie rolls on the trigger mechanism... Got the little bugger within 12 hours of seting the trap! They love tootsie rolls and when they try to pull at it, it setsoff the trap! They cant just lick it off like peanut butter, or snatch it and run like cheese

Hitch mounted motorcycle carrier on class c

We have a jayco greyhawk 31ss on the E450 super duty chassis, with helwig helper springs on the rear. We are going to be bringing my wifes motorcycle with us on our big trip this year (2005 Suzuki Boulevard S40). Which weighs about 400 pounds, i purchased a SMC600R carrier which is rated at carrying 600LBS, the carrier weighs about 80 pounds. My question is for anyone that also uses a hitch mounted carrier and if it effects the steering of the coach by "unloading" the front suspension. Im not overly concerned but figured i would ask to see if anyone has had experience with this Thanks

RE: What do you do about dirty clothes?

Have any of you used the portable washing machine that you can find at camping world? We purchased a panda portable washer that is big enough to sit in our shower to do shirts, towels, underwear, etc. maybe a pair of jeans in a pinch, we wash them when we get into a campground and then just ring them out and hang them on the towel bar in the shower to dry

Jayco greyhawk generator ?

I have a greyhawk 31ss with a onan microquiet 4000. The minor issue im having is that when running, or even if there is alot of movement of the coach when parked (and im sure when moving) there is an annoying squeak i believe it is more than likely the mounts, but i cant seem to locate the exact cause. Also, the exhaust comes from the rear of the gen and goes forward and exits just behind the drivers side running board, and i noticed that the pipe is starting to sag where it makes the 90 degree turn to exit toward the running board. Can someone tell me if they also have the squeak and how they fixed it, and how many mounts are on theirs for the exhaust? Thanks!

RE: 2 Questions for Jayco Greyhawk Owners

Our Greyhawk has surround sound that have subwoofer and two speakers under the cabinet above couch, and two where the entertainment is (we don't have the bunk over the cab, that where our tv, DVD, and more storage is. ) but ours only works when we use the DVD player. Other than that, the speakers in the ceiling are only for the dash radio

Alfa WiFi extender and Alfa Repeater

Trying to figure out if these two Alfa products are good for use in the RV. My wife and I use android tablets while on the road and in a campground, and dont really do much extensive use of wifi BUT.. I would like to have the option if needed. I understand that wifi is always dependent upon line of sight, signal strength etc... So im just looking for anyones experience with these two items. Thanks

Grand Canyon trailer village RV campground

Looking for some real world info on this campground We will be going in oct of 2016 the website has that it is a mile walk to the rim of the canyon. Just wondering if that is true. It states that there is a free shuttle that picks you up at the gate also that would be convenient. Thanks in advance

tyvek for rv cover?

I have seen pre made rv covers for sale that are made of tyvek. I'm wanting to cover the top and a little of sides of my RV this winter to keep the snow off the roof. What do you guys think about getting some tyvek and making my own cover? Would this even work? I don't any experience with tyvek and don't know if it sheds water, etc
