RE: Hot water not lasting

One thing is turn the propane on just before you get in the shower and then after you finish turn it off. That way you are not using your propane to keep the water hot when you aren't showering, but keeping up with heating the cold water entering the tank during your shower.

RE: Office area?

I have been looking at bunkhouse floorplans that I can remove the bunks and put in desk or cabinet combo to use for crafts and a little office equip. I am not sure if you are looking for new or used, but I am figuring a slightly lower cost used unit and a few extra dollars to make the mods for me.

RE: Huge discrepancies

Margaret, look at the tires on the truck and make an informed decision there too. My F150 came with Michellin tires.. I thought it was great that I had a good brand of tires.. only issue is they are P series tires with a recommended inflation of 35lbs per sticker. They have lasted well and ride super when not towing; however, they feel a bit squirmy in the rear when I am towing, especially on interstate highways. I have determined that adding extra air, up to about 44-45 lbs makes a huge difference to towing my TT. I have a 28ft with a dry weight of 5200. I will be buying new tires within the next few months and will change to some tire that has a stiffer sidewall. I know it will make the daily ride a bit stiffer, but it will make me feel safer towing. The whole point is as you look at trucks, don't forget to look at tires.. When I bought this truck I was so busy looking at weights, tires didn't even get considered.

RE: D.O.G. in Troy, AL 1/10/15

I so want to go... but regretfully I have a previous committment that I can't change. Maybe there will be another one close. I was excited because Troy is only about 100 miles away. Please post if there are any others in the area (SWGA, SE AL, or NCentral FL)

RE: Flying J diesel price

All the stations I have seen around here.... WalMart, Pilot, and other local chains all seem to have Diesel in the $3.35-$3.45 range and that hasn't changed much recently. Regular gas, on the other hand, has been steadily decreasing over the last month and is now around $2.26 at the same range of stations. Sure hope the price for gas continues to drop or at least holds steady over Christmas and New Years as I will be traveling during that time and burn through around 200 gallons in the next few weeks.

RE: Winter Curtains?

not totally attractive, but I use reflectix behind the shades.. I slide it behind the shades and up under the valance on the top and side panels.. bottom I sit in window frame... It isn't perfect but was a quick inexpensive way to give me some additional insulation. I am still debating if I want to put curtains or not as I plan to trade in another 2-3 years.

RE: Swapping a jack knife sofa for a recliner

I had a friend who replaced his jackknife with a loveseat recliner. Said it was much better. when he sold TT he put jackknife back in and offered to sell me loveseat. I wanted to make that same change, but my jackknife is in slide and has slide mechanism and other mechanical stuff under it so I have to keep my sofa that only sits so so.. If you can... go for it.

RE: Salem cruise lite vs Jayco jayflight

Look at what are standard and what are options on each brand and soon you will see the Jayco is probably worth at least that much difference.. 30lb propane bottles, power tongue jack, stabilizers, 2 door fridge and full stove with oven and more are standard... and are all options that are upgrades for Cruise Lite.. also don't forget the Jayco has a 2 year warranty. I have only had a couple of issues with my Jayco and all were brought on by my own ignorance/inattention.. and my dealer has been great to help me with my issues..

RE: Ford or...?

I think Ford was early to come out with an integrated trailer brake. I have that and absolutely love it. So much smoother than previous braking with standalone trailer brake.
wannavolunteerFT 12/09/14 06:35pm Travel Trailers

discovered the squirrels (or at least one) had made a nest on top of propane tank and chewed propane hoses until they leaked.. don't think they have gotten into TT, but really am not sure why they are using TT as home, since they have lots of other places to go. Subdivision was pecan orchard and still has many old pecan trees.. TT is in fairly open area in side yard, so you would think the destructive critters would hang around somewhere else. One of my jobs this weekend is to look around the bottom good to see if I find any openings they might have been going in through. I have not seen any evidence of them being inside, but I really haven't looked into cabinets closely. I have been thinking about putting out RAT traps, but not sure if the bait will just encourage squirrels to come to the trap. Too many around to think I can get rid of them all. i will be like the person who said he had caught 30, except that might be in a very short time.

RE: Travel trailer floor plans-rear bath vs middle-split bath

my Jayco 24rks is very similar to myredracers rk TT. the main difference is the wardrobe and fridge are not part of the slide out, and the slide is not quite so deep. no problems using trailer with slide in... in fact over Thanksgiving, I used it with slide to conserve heat/propane by having less outside surface area on N side during freezing nights. as to location of bath, I bought my TT because it had the mid-bath. I really disliked having to go past adult son on sofa to bath room in the middle of the night, when he was with me. Wasn't a problem when I was alone, but when I had someone with me, it was something I was uncomfortable with.

RE: Roaming RVers Rally schedule for 2014

I just found out yesterday that I need to be a meeting this afternoon here in town. I really had hoped to be there. As I mentioned earlier, I am willing to host for any of the Rallies in South Georgia. If we want to try Florida Caverns again, I am willing to take that one on. The only time I know I am likely to have a conflict is in July. Feel free to call me before 4 or after 4:30 if you want to confirm a date for my hosting. I will PM my phone number to gottarungottacamp.

RE: Show your homemade Anderson Leveler

dewey02, with a large level that I can see from my truck, it is so very easy... just pull up a smidge or two.. and if that is too much then just back up half a smidge.. I don't have to guess if I need an inch or three (meaning one to four blocks). it is crucially important that it be easy when I am traveling by myself, or have my 78yr old mother along to "help".

RE: What is a magazine?

I love print magazines because I read them as pigman said he does. I usually start with an article that catches my eye, then go to others, but sometimes I get sidetracked by an ad or some other article. I often save magazines (or atticles) for reading/re-reading later. I tend to read an article quickly and then if it has real interest, re-read slower and being much more careful to catch the detail. I find it hard to go back to the electronic version to find the detail I missed the first time around. Another thing, somehow the print seems to be easier on my eyes than the electronic version.

RE: Columbia, SC to Valdosta, GA

Let us know how this route worked for you. Sunday after Thanksgiving is a day to avoid I75 in GA at all costs, so I think you made a good decision. I am just about 70-80 miles north of Valdosta and will be heading toward NC (via Columbia) at Christmas, so I am interested in how your route worked out.

RE: Rv site near duke hospital

Mytime, is it wet just because of all the rain? or something else? I plan to stay there the week of Christmas while visiting DD in Holly Springs.

RE: Savannah, GA campground recommendations

someone mentioned Red Gate, I stayed there last spring and found it a nice place to stay if you want full hookups. I actually chose it because my DD and SIL were attending a wedding there and so the location was perfect for me to babysit and dogsit while they participated in wedding festivities. Nice open field for children/dogs to play, and several roads through farms to walk. Was a play area but I didn't look too closely as granddaughter was only about 8 months old, so too young for playground. It was convenient location and worked for us. Considered Skidaway but it just wasn't as convenient a location for that trip. Previous trip, Skidaway was under construction and there was no water available the week I was going to be there, so I decided to pass and stayed at Fort McCallister State Park instead. It was fine for what I had, although it would have been nice to have had sewer connections. Didn't have children with me, so never tried TV or playground, but there appeared to be a number of families in park.

RE: RV'ers planning to tailgate at the Alabama-Auburn game?

Kit Carson, have you tried Farr Park equestrian center there in Baton Rouge? It is only a few miles from campus and stadium. Stayed there a few years ago visiting family in BR. My dad became ill and ended up in hospital. People running the park were great, and very helpful and understanding our situation where we didn't know how long we would stay. Actually ended up leaving on Friday AM prior to Sat home game. When we arrived on Monday, park was practically empty. Friday as we left it was probably slightly better than half full. Park is first come first stay with no reservations, so I am sure by end of day on Friday it was full. We moved motorhome to cousin's driveway off I12 East on Friday, as Dad was expected to get out of hospital on Saturday allowing us to avoid game day traffic.
