RE: Boondocking or Squatting?

One of our favorite boondocking camp has become sketchy due to a string of thefts of items from RVs where the owners have left it unattended for a period of time while exploring. The camp area is usually very crowded however these break-ins go unnoticed by other campers. We haven't been there since hearing about these thefts.

RE: Painting Inside of Travel Trailer Bumper

My bumper is 22 years old and has never been painted inside. I have stored the sewer hose in there since the 5th wheel was new. The trailer is stored outside 6 miles from the ocean and we often camp at the beach. Small spots of rust does form on the outside of the bumper which I have to take care of every couple of years. None has eaten through from the inside or from the outside so far.

RE: Lenght

One thing to keep in mind, near most national and state parks there will be private campgrounds close by. We have a 38 foot 5th wheel and have always been able to find a place to stay within 25 miles or less of the national or state parks we wanted to visit. Great thing about private parks is you can get full hook ups which can help make the whole experience more enjoyable. It's bad when the batteries die while you are trying to take a shower with no hook ups. That happened to us in our 25 foot TT at Zion National Park in 1980.

RE: Depreciation, why so much with RV's

We've kept each of RVs through the years for a minimum of 16 years. Our current RV is 22 years old. The enjoyment we have received using our RVs far outweigh any associated costs. Good research to find the RV that best fits your current and future needs will help provide many years of useful life for your selected RV.

RE: Best Layout for family of 5

I would consider a toyhauler...the garage area can be customized to provide sleeping areas for the kids; fold down or drop down bunks. Plus there's room to carry bikes, water toys and other stuff to keep the kids active.

RE: Interior wall hole repair ideas

I would either buy or make an access panel so it would look like it’s supposed to be there. PS I would have made my kids pay for it, parts and labor. X-2 on this suggestion and payment

RE: First RV trip to Sierras

We have two favorites in the western Sierras. Both are great and it would be hard for me to choose one over the other. On Shaver Lake is Camp Edison. Sites are great with full hookups. The lake offers water adventures and there is plenty of hiking opportunities. May will be cold and there may be snow on the ground or a possible snow storm so watch the weather. The other is Sequoia RV Ranch in Kaweah near Three Rivers Ca. It is just outside of Sequoia Nat'l Park and can be used as a base camp to visit the park. There is a river flowing through the property with great trout fishing. It is at a lower elevation than Shaver Lake.

RE: Long Bed TV as a Daily Driver???

Rent a long bed truck and drive it around for a week. Then rent a short bed truck a try it for a week.

The sensors are unreliable. There are some aftermarket sensors that folks have tried with some success. I've learned how long we can go without dumping based on the number of people we have with us on a trip or if it's just my wife and I. There have been a couple of times where my guess has been wrong. I carry a blue boy tank for just that reason so I can dump off some and give us another day or so before having to dump. Be sure to train guests on how to use the sinks, shower and toilet so you can extend the length of time before needing to dump. Too much running water will fill the tanks quickly.

RE: driving the I15 in febuary

As theczar posted from Vegas to Disneyland try to plan to do it on Sturday or a weekday; try to hit the LA area after the morning commute has died down..after 10AM and before the afternoon commute begins around 2PM. It's a small window to avoid heavy traffic.

RE: Water leak in glass seal at the bottom of the window.

On my 5th wheel during a rain storm I noticed water running down the inside wall from the bottom of the window. It turned out that the caulking at the top of the window frame on the outside had dried out and was cracked. The rain water was following the window frame down and spilling out at the bottom of the window frame inside the trailer. I caulked all of the windows and haven't had a problem since. By the way there was water in the channel where the window slides and it wasn't going out the weep holes. I guess the weep holes are only for water in the outside channel.

RE: Questions RE: Rear air bags for full size trucks

Basically for use to keep the rear of the truck at normal ride height when carrying a heavy load. They do not increase load capacity. Load capacity is based on many factors beyond just the springs...axles, brakes, frame, transmission...and more are all taken into consideration for load capacity by manufacturers. Air bags can stiffen the ride when inflated and some folks report their truck has a better ride when loaded with the air bags inflated. Personally, I have had two trucks with overload springs and my current truck has a Link Air Ride suspension in the rear. All three trucks, in my opinion, were equal ride with a heavy load. The Link system does keep the rear of the truck as close as possible to normal ride height. The overload springs did not kick in until the rear lowered as weight exceeded the capacity of the normal springs to keep the rear up.

RE: Help me understand

Consumer data is like these forums.... you don't always get a true picture. I rarely respond to any survey regarding the items I purchase. However I do respond if I have a problem with the item. Same with forums, of the millions of RV owners in the US and Canada only a small portion ever post anything on this forum. Folks come to this type of forum usually if the have a problem, complaint or like to share their knowledge/opinions... Majority of RV owners are silent because they are happy with their RV. All you have to do is sit for an hour alongside a major highway and watch the pickups go by that are towing a trailer or hauling a camper. You'll get a feel for what RV'ers are buying and keeping...

RE: Tire tread wear.

I'm on my 4th set of tires for my 22 year old 5th wheel. All sets have pretty much stayed flat across the tread. No rounding or scuffing. In fact the tires will stand up on their own when I take them off of the trailer for bearing maintenance or other work. I do make sure the pressure is correct before and during each trip. The one time I had a tire with a rounded look to the tread the bands had separated inside of the tire. It was very noticeable and was causing that tire to rub against the front tire on bumps in the road. I began seeing little puffs of smoke in my mirror.

RE: California City CA Unique Opportunity- Not an RV park

There was a caretaker site that I used to look at, I'm guessing it was caretaker.com or .org... Escapees.com has a classified section where you can post an ad in the forum section Craigslist

RE: UPS Deliveries

Couple of the RV Resorts we've stayed in the packages were left in the office where anyone could grab them. We had one disappear at one park. Plus an envelope containing a birthday card was taken that had been placed in the alphabetical mail slots. The staff saw two ladies messing around by the mail slots which are at the back of the store/office. The ladies left and were spotted walking out of the RV Park...obviously didn't belong there. Police were called and a report taken. Nothing ever came of either theft.

RE: Need my travel trailer towed from Washington to Arizona

Uship.com is a great place to find a transporter. Pay close attention to the reviews for anyone that bids to move your RV. There are lots of RV Transporters listed online and in media like Craigslist & RV Trader
