RE: Maryland tagged RV with GVWR 26,001 or more pounds

Bully dog, Does NC require a road test to upgrade your license? If so, how does you get your rig to the testing site legally?

RE: Trip to Mt Rushmore

We were in that area last month for 5 days. We stayed at Custers Gulch RV Park. It was very nice with friendly staff. We enjoyed Mt. Rushmore very much. There is a $10 charge for parking. ($5 for seniors) Everything else is free. The Crazy Horse monument charges $11 per adult and something less for kids. You can see the monument from the highway. The visitors center there is okay, but they are trying to sell you something at every turn. We felt like it was a bit of a money grab. Custer State Park was great. The cost is reasonable and the wildlife is wonderful to see. We also drove up to Deadwood one day. We had a good time there visiting the casinos and restaurants. Hope your trip works out for you.

RE: Norcolc 1200 cooling fan

My Norcold 1200 LRIM is not in a slideout. It does have two fans midway up on the rear of the cooling unit. I replaced both fans and the thermostat that were bad. I am currently in a campground with 90 + degree temps. My freezer is at 6 degrees and the fridge is at 34 degrees with the control set at 6. These fans make a tremendous difference. Bill

RE: TV's Control two TV's in living room

We have this issue with our two living area TV'sf and they are different brands! The front tv is an Element. The midship tv is a Sony. The only controls that consistently interfere are the power and volume controls. I have not found a way to fix this yet, but adding a screen to reduce the sensitivity of the ir recievers sounds like a possibility.

RE: New (to me) RV--lightweight toad recommendations

We tow a 2010 Chevy Cobalt. Less than 3000 pounds. Automatic. Only need to remove one fuse, put in neutral and unlock the steering wheel. Then you are ready to tow. Bill

RE: Follow up from Meemaw and Pop pop?

We bought our 2003 Mountain Aire from Camping World of Atlanta -Woodstock. They were wonderful to deal with. Anything we could find wrong during the PDI was corrected immediately. The only thing they could not fix right away was a leveling jack that would not retract properly. They didn't have a jack to replace it with. They promised to purchase the jack and ship it to me. Then they arranged for the Camping World near my home to install it. They did everything they promised in a timely manner. I was completely satisfied with the entire purchase process. Having said all of this, I'd like to point out that some other issues showed up since the purchase that I have taken care at my expense. I don't fault Camping World for these issues. That is just part of owning an older used coach. I only wrote this reply to illustrate that not all dealings with Camping World are bad. We need to take some responsibility for the outcome of any transaction of this sort. If we do the proper research and check out the rigs carefully and thoroughly, the outcome should be predictable.

RE: Sears & Roebuck Alert

Everyone feels that the internet took Sears and Other retailers down. Actually I think it's the management that killed them. When I went to Sears today, my wife found the jeans she wanted with no help from a sales person. We had to look all over the sales floor ourselves until we found them. Then we stood in line at the only checkout that was manned for 30 minutes just to pay for the items. This same shopping experience would have taken less than twenty minutes on line. When you make the process of purchasing your merchandise more difficult, who wouldn't look for a better shopping experience. It seems to me that the last service you would want to cut back would be the means of paying for your purchases. Just my 2 cents.

RE: Stuck clear sewer fitting

I would go to Harbor Freight and buy a strap wrench. That should remove it easily.

RE: Norcold 121 Series Condenser Fan Noise

I just bought these fans with thermostat they seem to be working well. They just a bit louder than the originals, but not objectionable. I bought a furniture dolly from harbor freight and built a platform on it to make it the same height as the bottom of the fridge. Then disconnected everything, removed the screws front and back, and pushed from the back through tha rear access door. It was't as bad as I thought it would be. Hope this helps

RE: Packing to travel

One of the advantages to traveling in an RV is not having to unpack and repack each time you leave one destination for the next. Most things in the RV will ride just fine if you place some towels around fragile items. Things that can fall over in cabinets or medicine cabinets need to be laid down or packed tightly with other objects so they can't move. Dishes should be separated with foam sheets pots and pans should have towels around them to keep them from rattling. I'm sure others will chime in with other tips. Relax and enjoy the RV lifestyle.
