RE: Need dessert help

RE: Wheel Capacities

Usually stamped on the inside of the wheel so the tire needs to be removed.

RE: Fuel

I begin looking for a place to fill up when the gauge hits half tank and definitely before 1/4 tank. Works out to about 300 miles in my truck while towing. Perfect time to stretch my legs.

RE: 50A Power Cable Coming Apart

Mine has been that way for years. It is the outer insulating sheath shrinking but you are seeing the individual insulation underneath, it is still safe. X2

RE: Cleaning my grill - Help!

I would soak it in a tub with water and dish soap over night. Scrub it good in the morning and then wash again with soap and hot water. Rinse and then put it back on the BBQ with heat to dry it. Alternative soak would be a bleach solution. By the way opossums are made out of meat....unless you grill Tofu, I'm guessing the grill has been touched by meat before...LOL

RE: 41 from South Entrance of Yosemite

The last time we went up to Yosemite we saw a 5th wheel coming down with the top portion on one side of the front cap wrecked. It looked to me like he had hit the opening on one of the tunnels. Maybe didn't get over the centerline enough. We had a TT at 10ft tall and had no trouble.

RE: Trading Up...TV Advice?

Rent a pickup and see if you would like it as a daily driver. Keep it for a week and take a long drive in it. To me a fully equipped pickup is just as comfortable as an SUV I would go with at least a 2500/250 for future needs. After all you are already upgrading...what's next ?

RE: Wax?

Zip Wax Combo works great. The last few years I've paid an RV detailer to wash and wax. Much easier on me and the rig always looks great.

RE: 33ins wheel spacing

It does look like the front left spring is flat....I would say too heavy of load. Or too much nose down angle.

No Nor have I been hacked at any other WiFi hot spot...McDs, Starbucks, Hospital, Panera Bread, or others...

RE: Starting from scratch! Which model of van do you recommend?

Clinto, Many new RV'ers start out with a basic unit then they discover how much the family enjoys camping/ being in the outdoors. Most RV'ers go through 3 upgrades before they finally land on the size of RV that really fits their needs. I always advise new RV'ers to not go basic. Look at larger RVs as a first RV. Since an RV doesn't get driven much you can find good used units for low prices which will provide years of trouble free enjoyment. If you are set on a setting up a van, I would go with the Ford Transit based only on it's what is used by American Pickers television personalities. They drive it all over the east and central states carry items they purchase at junkyards.

RE: Aerodynamics Matter !!

Same old discussion....fuel mileage. While good fuel mileage is a good thing, anyone who worries about it and makes it a prime concern - should not be RV'ing. X-2 The way I look at it is I'm willing to pay whatever it takes to get away from the rat race for a few days. 6 MPG or 11 MPG just getting away is worth the price.

RE: 33ins wheel spacing

I'm guessing you mean the tires are very close together. There are several causes: > Spring issue Broken, bent, loose, worn shackles > The pin that aligns the axle has sheared off. This pin is where the spring pack meets the axle. > Bands inside the tire are broken and the middle of the tread is bulging. The tires should look flat across the tread, if there is a significant bulge in the center then the bands may be coming apart. > Bent axle

RE: Sleeping options with a older baby

Our friends used something they bought at a baby store. It was a rectangle made out of round foam covered in cloth. The toddler lay in the center and the round foam kept her from rolling out of bed. Something like this but toddler sized http://www.plioz.com/lulyboo-baby-lounger-to-go-baby-travel-bed-with-waterproof-bottom/

RE: OVen For Trailer

We use a counter top convection oven. I'm sure my wife got it on QVC or HSN and I believe it's a Wolf Gang Puck signature model. It works really well and is a little bigger than the old toaster ovens. The oven in your TT may need some adjusting to make it work better. Any stove repair tech would be able to adjust it properly. Keep in mind, the RV ovens are notorious for incorrect temperature levels, so it is best to use an oven thermometer and adjust accordingly. Ours is 25 degrees too hot. So instead of 400 degrees we use 375 and it works great. Once you turn the knob on it can take awhile for the oven to light and heat up. You have to be patient.

RE: Securing chairs to back wall?

My first thought would be to put a solid wood chair rail on the wall so you can tie it into the back wall framing. This would spread the stress along the entire back wall. Then put eye bolts or some other means of hold attached to the chair rail. Or some of the non-skid material like used in RV dish cabinets. We used it to keep our TV from sliding around. Or Some sort of spring pole like a shower curtain rod between the walls to hold the chairs in place.

RE: wondering if 2 (smaller) gray tanks better than one big one

Poor design by the manufacturer but good suggestions above on how to overcome it.
