RE: How much does it cost to replace old carpet with new?

I just had my carpet replaced in the lounge area including the 2 slide-outs. They also replaced the carpet on the steps going to the bedroom/bath area. The total cost was $805. They put down new heavier padding, better quality carpet and installed it with tack strips instead of millions of staples. As stated above, it did take them a few days to get the edged bound for the slide-out pieces. They did a great job. It really looks nice. I had a flooring company do the job for me. Bill

RE: Which exhaust brake would you recommend

Well, I finally did it. I bought the PacBrake C44052 kit. My son (Who is a ASE Certified Master Mechanic and also the Service Manager at the local Dodge dealer) and I installed it a couple of weeks ago. I have not had a chance to use it while towing yet, but I am anxious to do so. When driving the truck without the camper, it does a great job slowing down to about 20 mph. I'll let you know about the performance with the 12,000 lb camper behind. Happy Rving, Bill

RE: Winterizing In the South

What's the big deal about winterizing. It only take about 20 minutes to blow out the water lines and pour about half of a gallon of antifreeze into the drain traps. At a cost of 20 minutes in time and $2.00 in antifreeze, it would be worth it to me not to even question whether I need to worry about freezing. Just my .02! :B

RV Parks near Charleston, WV

I would like to attend a convention next August in Charleston, WV. I have been searching the internet for RV parks in the area and have not found any that are very close to this city. Does anyone have any suggestions as to where I could park my 34 foot fifth wheel in this area? Thanks for any help you can provide. Bill

RE: Camping, Nashville, TN

We stayed at Two Rivers last summer. It was a great place and the staff is very friendly and helpful.

RE: new strong odor - help/advice please

Check the air admittance valve that is likely located under the bathroom sink. If this fails to close properly it will let odors from the grey tank enter the living space. This is a vry inexpensive device available from any home improvement store for $10 or less.

RE: Bedroom slide repair

Yes, mine had a similar covering. Since I coated the plywood with spar varnish, it is completely water proofed. Therefore there was no need for this covering. Bill

RE: Bedroom slide repair

I replaced the floor in my bedroom slide-out WITHOUT removing the slide-out. I extended the slide-out then attached a piece of angle iron to each outside corner after removing the outside trim. I then screwed a 2 x 4 to each angle iron that was sitting on the ground. I then lowered the front of the 5'er just enough for the 2x4's to take the weight of the slide-out. I then removed the mattress and the wafer board from the top the bed. This exposed the slide actuator mechanism. Once the slide-out was supported, I took the screws out of the bottom that attached the floor to the walls. I then removed the bolts that attached the slide actuator to the floor. Then the entire floor came out from the bottom. I used the old floor as a pattern for the new floor which I made from 1" thick marine plywood. After cutting the new floor to size, I coated it with several coats of spar varnish on all sides and edges. After the spar varnish was dry, I installed the new floor from the bottom, screwed it to the walls and re-attached the actuator assembly. Finally, I raised the front of the 5'er to remove the weight from the 2x4's, and removed the angle irons from the outside corners of the slide-out. Then I reattached the outside trim after sealing all the joints with Eternabond tape and caulking. Then I reassembled the bed platform. The whole process took several days because of the dry time for the spar varnish. Dis-assembly and re-assembly only involved a couple of days. The bedroom slide-out is now better than new. I hope this helps you out. P.S. I had to order the 1" marine plywood from a specialty plywood store. The cost for a 4' x 8' sheet was about $150.

RE: Set up!

About the hand-cranking of the stabilizers, I use a DeWalt 18V cordless drill, with an adapter and socket that I use to lower/raise the stabilizers. Just be careful not to lower too quickly. When they touch the ground, then I will snug them up with the hand crank. Works great! Good luck, John I got the wife to do that...lol I am planning on getting something like that down the road. I will be moving to Greensboro,NC Jan of this year. Any good places anyone recomends in those neck of the woods? and a cheap place to store the TT would be great. I live in Burlington, NC just down the road from Greensboro. About 8 miles north of Greensboro is the town of Reidsville. They have a great park there at Lake Reidsville. Camping there with full hookups is only $17 per night for non-town residents. Maybe we will see you there next year.:B

RE: RV STORAGE IN MYRTLE BEACH

If you are planning to stay at the campgrounds at the south end of myrtle beach, (Pirate Land, Lakewood, Ocean Lakes), some of them will only store travel trailers and fifth wheels. It appears that Tippy Toe only delivers to the north end.

RE: Rebuilding a slide out.....sorta

I bought it from a hardwood specialty store in my area. I originally planned to use two 1/2" pieces sandwiched together. When I called the store to inquire about the 1/2" plywood and what I planned to do, they told me they could get 1" marine plywood. They ordered it for me. I think it was about $150 for a 4'x8' sheet.

RE: 199 Days.....

I have 227 days until retirement as of this morning. We have a similar plan of hitting the road for about 3 months right after I retire. Maybe we will see you on the road. Travel slow and be safe. Take time to enjoy the journey as well as the destinations. :B

RE: Rebuilding a slide out.....sorta

I replaced the floor of my bedroom slide with 1 inch thick marine plywood. I used the original floor as a pattern, cut it out and sanded it. Then I put several coats of spar varnish on all surfaces. Then installed the new floor. Preparing the new floor took a few days in order to give the spar varnish time to dry. Installing the floor was a one day project. Much easier than I thought it would be. This was done in the spring of 2012. I have used the camper many times since then and the floor shows no signs of wear. I also sealed the bottom corners with eternabond tape and trimmed it so it would not land on the delrim blocks that it slides on.

RE: Best places to stay from NC. to PA

If you are going up I-81 to PA, then Jellystone RV Park in Hagerstown, MD is a good place to spend the night en-route. We did this a few years ago and had a great 2 day stop there. We were on our way to Upstate NY. We have also stopped at Cherry Hill Campground near Winchester, VA. There is a Flying-J near there where you can fuel up. Hope you have a great time on your trip.

RE: Smell propane? Check pressure regulator...

I also had to replace my 30# regulator after 3 years. I also had a hard time finding one.

RE: Which exhaust brake would you recommend

Thanks to all who have responded to my post. I'm leaning toward the PacBrake at this time. I'll let you know when I pull the trigger. Thanks again for you input. Bill

RE: sewer hose leak

Do you store your sewer hose in your bumper? That is the quickest way I know to ruin your sewer hose. As rust develops inside the bumper, each time you push your hose in it cuts it like a razor. Store it in a plastic tub and it will last a LONG time. I have been using my Rhino hose for 6 seasons now and it is still as good as new. Just my 2 cents.
