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: AVOID-Coeur d'Alene RV Resort, Idaho- I90, Exit 7

Under rates, it doesn't mention dog rates. http://www.cdarvpark.com/ But it does say "Pet Restrictions" on the rates page http://www.cdarvpark.com/rates.html

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.

RE: Cooling trailer while driving

As others have mentioned, max air vent covers and leave vents open. No windows open, just vents. X2 & 3 & 4 & infinity

RE: TV Antenna

Hang your TV keys on the crank for the antennae.

RE: Terrible Experience

I read the reviews for this at rvparkreviews. This CG caters to families that want entertainment provided for their kids. That was easy enough to figure out by reading everybody's reviews. When you consider that, the $20 is probably not too high, so as to discourage people from bringing the carloads of cousins to visit. They may be empty now, but they may make enough profit over the summer months to cover. When staying at a CG, it's best to find out all the charges before you incur one.

RE: Long term reliability of GM 8.1 Liter

Great motor just thirsty. Will pass everything but a gas station. Yep. Nothing more fun than being able to accelerate up a steep grade.

RE: Battery recommendation

My old Trojan 6 volts just gave out after almost 8 years of service. I got two of these My new maintenance free 6 volts Shipping was free. Fedex wanted a signature, so I had them re-routed to their local shop. Each box weighed 72 pounds.

RE: Yes you can drive 55 and 60.

Sammy Hagar didn't like 65 either. Thats why he wrote the song.. :) Sammy actually couldn't drive 55.Actually, he recorded it both ways.. I have a concert CD where he corrects the audience to 65 Anyway ., interesting thread... I do 62-63 also. Just seems like a sweet spot But he sure made some good tequila (Cabo Wabo) - it's the best!

RE: How do you feel about people walking through your campsite?

I paid extra for a site that is closer to the river for my convenience, not others. I have a very large dog who has no problem with strangers that we invite into our site - he does have a problem with those that we have not. I have expensive gear - if something goes missing, I will mention to the authorities who was walking through my site uninvited. A window in my trailer may be facing a part of the site that is only visible if you are in the site - somebody may be changing inside that has a reasonable expectation that they do not have to pull the curtain for that window. You wouldn't walk through a stranger's hotel room uninvited because it is a shortcut to the pool.

RE: OIder SUV for towing hybrid trailer

Curious question - there's a hybrid that weighs that much?

RE: Another TV question...long or short bed?

Do they still put smaller fuel tanks in the short beds? I had a 2010 F250 gasser that only had a 26 gallon tank. It only had a 5.4L engine, so I would have to stop frequently.

RE: WDH with air suspension, no standard answer?

What I've found that works best for me - I move the ball under the tongue and turn off the TV. I put the tongue on, winding the jack off the ground. I let it sit for about 30 minutes. I go back and without turning on the TV, I jack it back up (attached) and add the bars and let it back down. Any other way and it just doesn't feel right.
