RE: Stupid! Stupid! Stupid! Broken Tongue Jack

I did this at a CG entrance with our old camper. Jacked it up to remove the WDH bars (didn't realize you could back up with these on) and forgot to put it back down. At least the CG had been cutting down some trees, and there were logs everywhere. Rolled a large one under the tongue then used the car jack to raise it off the ball. Almost perfectly level. NOTE - take the tongue jack with you to make sure the holes line up. I ended up having to do two trips because of this - first one was wrong, and the only one that matched was an electric. I do miss having that electric jack.

RE: Horrible Sway

I haven't scaled it, but I believe I have our load evenly distributed. Scale it.

RE: Arizona State Park camping fees

That's why we all have wheels, so we can move on to something we like better.

RE: F150 towing from SC to TX

The biggest issue has been electronic sway control. Towing at max, has stressed this system apparently and it tries to constantly control the truck making driving miserable. The solution...turn off electronic sway control. That was the biggest improvement. He had to add a brake controller, so it won't have the built in sway control.

RE: Are LED RV lights as bright as incandescent?

Replaced all of mine. The double fixtures (which is most of them) now only have one LED because they are so bright.

RE: Quality of Park Reviews

One man's 10 is another man's 1 - and vice versa. To get an accurate representation of someone's review, you should read their other reviews. There was one who gave only 10's and 1's - solely based on wi-fi.

RE: Sway control needed when pulling TT with DRW?

Do you need it? Depends on your speed. If you can do 25 the whole time, no. But if you want to do highway speeds - yes.

RE: Family-friendly TVs?

At some point your kids will want to bring friends. Get a Suburban/Yukon or Excursion.

RE: Failed to consider the size of the Portable Dump tank..

I have never filled the black tank on any trip, only the grey, and not very often once I learned how not to fill it. I had one of those portable 25 gallon ones, and it was a pain to transport. Now I keep a 5 gallon bucket in case I fill grey - I can deal with it 5 gallons at a time.

RE: hendersonville, nc

What kind of amenities are you looking for? Davidson River CG does not have FHU. About 1/3 to 1/2 half of their sites have electric. They have dump station and a water fill up at entrance. I never get an electric site because of the temps, I don't need A/C.

RE: I made a rookie move... Always tip your awning at night!

I use tie downs, and have not had trouble with wind. I always tip one side, but a couple of years ago, that didn't stop the water from pooling during a huge gully-washer (I was actually sitting under it reading a book when I noticed the bulge). I also tried to lower one side slowly only to have it yanked out of my hands. Mine is now bowed, but I found it advantageous - I don't unroll the last 6 inches, and while I still tip one side, it can't accumulate because of the bow shape. I have too much setup outside to bring it in at night.

RE: New Campers, Help Please

My question is can I safely pull this camper with my 2011 Ford Expedition with a 5.4 V8? As long as you don't go over 35 MPH.

RE: Dangerous TV/TT/hitch combo - so hard to bite my lip

"hey, that's a nice looking new camper you got. I was thinking of something along these lines - how does it tow?"

RE: Smoky Mountains Campground Suggestions Internet

Yeah its about 90 gig a month for my requirements. One of my server logs can be 500 meg alone Are you downloading these files instead of viewing remotely? I won't download a 50 meg log file even when I'm on the same network at work. Is the software you are supporting graphic intensive? If not, you could just remote to a machine somewhere to troubleshoot.

RE: KOA standard charge now $60?!

State and federal parks usually have hiking trails and a body of water - all the amenities the kids need.
