RE: Be Carefully Buying A Rental

Was at a NP in line to dump. rental in front was filling water from the clean up hose. I cautioned them, his reply was "we don't drink the water".

RE: Vinyl insert molding trim

I had to use a hair dryer to soften the vinyl to make sharp turns, then hold in place till it cools and returns to shape.

RE: How big is your fuel tank?

1997 E350 V10 35 gal. Are all gas pump flows the same? When in Canada never could get the pump to run by "setting the trigger". Had to nurse every gallon in by slowly squeezing the trigger. Seems like all stations down south will run till almost completly full.

RE: Towing a Toyota Prius on a dolly.

We tow a Prius on a Demco dolly. You will have to increase the ramp length(I use the 3 step plastic ramps) because the air dam up front will drag. just shut off and use parking brake, NOT the emergency brake. You cannot use safety chains over the axel or hook to anything under neath due to the shields. What I use is take the tow hook and screw into the provided ports under each light, and have a plastic coated cable with hooks on each end and hook one end to the tow hook and the other to the front of the dolly. Leave a little slack for turning without stretching the cable. had a bunch of error codes pop up the first time due to the computers seeing the rear wheels turning but not the front. Just drove around the block and everything got back in sync again. This has only occurred the very first time we towed. Use the Demco tie straps if your dolly will take the double strap hooks.

RE: $700 Later, Leaky Shower Drain Fixed

Just make sure that if you do add support under these tubs that you don't upset the draining ability to completely drain your tub.

RE: Road to L'Anse Aux Meadows, Newfoundland

We were up there in late June. Roads were not as much of a problem as the weather. Lots of fog and high winds so kept the speed down. Didn't see a single moose on the entire trip, but plenty of warning signs all along the route. The Meadows were very interesting. Make sure you get the guide that is on the cover of the brochures in the visitor center. He grew up just a few hundred yards past the settlement and tells wonderful stories of the area.

RE: Adding Drain Valve to Atwood Water Heater

I use a turkey baster with a short section of clear hose to suck out that last bit of water that will not drain on it's own.

Allison 6 speed w/lock out

Looking at an Allegro Breeze, and it advertises an Allison xmisson with lock out. What series Allison is this(1000..2000?). And what is lockout?

RE: Va State Parks & Dog fees

I guess I got all of this started with my comment on 6/09 about these fees. Special thanks 3dognight for following up and letting us know the outcome of your meeting. There has been much discussion on the two threads with opinions going both ways. Perhaps Virgina SP's has heard our concerns and will rectify their previous decision.

RE: campground reservations necessary in Newfoundland?

We did the entire west coast, bottom to top, and back down last week. no problem getting a site. Extreme north around the meadows, camps are scarce. Nice fenced camp at the ferry over to Labrador. Watch your gas, some stations are 100k apart up north.

RE: Labrador?

If your are doing this in the next few days, the ferry is VERY backed up due to the holiday.

RE: Canadian Maritimes

I know your talking about a few weeks away, but it got down to 37 degrees waiting on the ferry at St. Barbe two days ago.
