RE: How big an issue is weight?

Insurance company if you are at fault will use every means possible to lessen their costs. In addition the lawyer (if there is one) or other insurance company for others involved in the accident may use the over weight as a factor for the accident and negligence on your part in determining the amount of money they ask for in court if you are sued. It's better to be safe than sorry. In a quick Google search I found a lawyer's website that specifically speaks to over weight RVs and how it can be used in court for judgement.

RE: IPAD Aire 2 no sound

Most iPads are bluetooth capable so yes it is an option. I'm sure the jack can be repaired but at what cost.

RE: Disgruntled Millennials on the Road

The number is on the rise. That's why the "Tiny House" has become popular and the "Minimalist" movement. A good website with lots of helpful info regarding full time RVing is: www.rv-dreams.com The folks who own the website were in their 40's when they left good corporate jobs, sold everything and headed out on the road in an RV 12 years ago. Read through the posts on the website and learn what they have learned. They show their expenses for every month since they began. I sent you a private message regarding my truck for sale.

RE: Silicone baking pans

Silicone seems to get stained or caked to the point where they look dirty after awhile. I've gone back to using non stick pots and pans for baking.

RE: roof clearance lights

Sounds like they may be pop riveted in. If so you would need to drill out the pop rivets. You may be able to use JB Weld or other epoxy product to fill in the crack...touch up with paint. Be careful when tightening the screws that hold down the lens. It's common to over-tighten and crack the lens which will leak as well.

RE: Crack by slide outs

Common... concern if not taken care of it can grow and get wider.

RE: 1997 Alfa Gold 5th wheel new owner needs help

We have a 1994 Alfa SeeYa. Most of the parts will be hard to get if they were specific to Alfa 5th wheels. Common RV/marine parts can be purchased at RV or Mrine supply stores or online. PPL Motorhomes Parts department is my favorite online supplier. Other components common to homes can be purchased at Hardware, plumbing or home supply stores. Suspension parts, brakes are available through Dexter or RV/ Trailer supply Anything else you will need to fabricate or modify something similar. Most RV manufacturers use components common to the RV industry it just takes some digging to find what you need.

RE: Min. distance

anything over 6 is great. Some RV'ers are able to get away with 5 inches.

RE: Redwoods & Sequoia

Sequoia RV Ranch in Kaweah (Three Rivers) is outside the national park. It is our favorite place to stay when visiting Sequoia Natl Park. It's a rustic RV Park next to the Kaweah River. An easy drive to the park for sight seeing. We like space 55 it has 50 amp pedestal. Here's the website: http://www.sequoiarvranch.com/campsites.html

RE: Quartzsite make you sick?

My wife contracted valley fever at Q after a really bad wind storm. It took her about 4 months to get over it completely.

RE: Survey - who has had a citation for RV overweight?

Here's the real concern if an RV is overweight.... you and your family's safety. Not to mention the vehicles around you. If you are involved in an accident with your RV and if the investigation determines your vehicle is over weight, whether the accident is your fault or not, the over weight condition can be considered a contributing factor. Possible liability for you and fines.

RE: External hard Drive for Dish VIP 211K

I went to the local Best Buy and found the one I use. I don't remember the make or model but Best Buy had a couple of externally powered external hard drives.

RE: Propane or Charcoal : Seperate Tank or trailer Fed?

we used propane grill with it's own tank. A small 1 gallon tank we bought at an RV supply store. Now we use an electric grill my DW bought from QVC. http://www.qvc.com/Masterbuilt-Veranda-196-sq-in-Electric-Grill-with-Cover.product.K41863.html It's convenient and flavors as good as any grill we've used...charcoal or propane. We carry it in the shower

RE: any advice

I carry a bottle jack in the truck along with two jack stands. This offers easy to store and more flexibility than a floor jack for on the road or in the campground repairs. I do have a floor jack and 6 jack stands at home for the times when I need a serious jack solution.

RE: New Steps Needed After Axle Flip - Recommendations?

I built a 30" X 36" box out of exterior grade plywood high enough to make the step up to the first step comfortable. I left the bottom open on the box so I can turn it over in the bed of my truck to carry stuff in when towing. I covered the top and sides in outdoor carpet. It has been a handy thing to have and works great as a bottom step after our axles were flipped.
