RE: RV travel to Canada

I think I'll just leave it all at home and enjoy the trip.

RE: RV travel to Canada

Possibly doing the Selkirk Loop this summer. The info here is very helpful. having never been out of the US I don't want to cause an issue because I didn't know about some reg, like the bear spray. Are any and all guns not allowed? Like an O/U shotgun or lever action rifle? How about prescription meds?

RE: Tool chest selection

back in my 4x4 off road days we would carry everything including a welding/cutting torch. We could fix anything, anywhere, with what we had with us. Those days are gone. One small tool box and a cell phone is all I need.

RE: New Horizons TT?

From my conversation at the Pomona RV show, their 5ths can run 200K+. There is a lot you can do with <1/2 that. You could buy a used DP and have it re-done. or a new TT and have custom cabinets and interior installed, perhaps a full body paint. The NH units are super nice, but if you have to ask the price, it might not be what you are looking for.

RE: Please remove your hitch

My hitch gets locked in place to the truck when I leave and is removed when I get home. On the trip when nit in use I tape a trash bag over it so you won't get grease on you when you walk into it while you are texting. I always park way out in the parking lots leaving the close spots for those that can't walk as far and they don't have to walk past my hitch, or truck. I am not going to be removing my hitch in an RV park so it can get re-homed. If I never take the locking pin out, I'll never forget to put it back in. I don't want to hurt someone with my TT loose on the freeway. I was going to mount a winch on the front of my truck but I fear someone might walk into it.

RE: New Horizons TT?

Spoke with them at the Pomona RV show. They are a custom, very expensive and very high quality build. Also very heavy. I mean very heavy. You could buy a Arctic Fox and have it customized and have a lighter, cheaper, well built TT.

RE: Firearms in RV

I like guns and have owned them all my life. Have not shot one in many years and hope to never shoot one in defense. I think the best tool on the road is bear spray. Good for 30 feet, not lethal so the bar for use is not so high and its legal anywhere, almost. It will stop the situation. If the other guy is shooting at you you're probably already dead anyway. My 100+ pound dog, bear spray, cell phone, are always with me along with some self awareness and common sense. For the breakdown in the middle of no where on a dark night, I go to plan "B".

RE: Firearms in RV

If no one ever sees it, is there one in there? When are you asked if there is a gun in your RV? How often do you plan on using it? Or better yet, how often have you used one?

RE: Lippert StrapTek WD setup

My TT has way too much on it now made by Lippert or a co that they own. Windows, doors, TV & stero, steps, stabilizers, axles, and I am sure there are others. If the frame was Lippert I would not have bought it. I see Lippert as the Wallmart of the RV industry. Lippert will some day own a RV mfg. If you are going to be buying a new RV in the future you might want to think about it. Not me, this is my last one.

RE: Sewer smell when using exhaust fans

After rinsing the grey water tank pour about 2 cups of ammonia down the sink drain and let it set for an hour. Be very careful not to add bleach to the ammonia or you will make mustard gas and you might not wake up in the morning after that. I personally stay away from ammonia.

RE: Californianos Hang Onto Yer Britches...!

In La Verne we got some good rain but I have seen much more here. About 5 miles West to Glendora there was some mud but not as bad as it could be. My old Adco cover is still on the TT so not much wind here. The news always tries to make it more than it is so you watch it. The season is just starting. actually it was very rough in some places just because you didn't get hit.. doesn't mean nobody else did another problem with SoCal the same news cast i get in Van Nuys or Reseda you and everybody else in a 75mile radius of mount Wilson gets Laverne is how many miles from Ventura and Camarillo 60? 90? the coastal side and the hills Always gets hit harder, then the southern end of the storm comes around and floods the desert communities I thought I was clear that I was talking about LaVerne and not the entire state. I was only talking about LaVerne. I only mentioned Glendora because it was on the news so much. There was some mud in some yards there but nothing like many expected.

RE: Sewer smell when using exhaust fans

Yep, just open a window and close the grey valve. Your fan is blowing air out and it has to come from somewhere. With your grey valve open you could be sucking gasses all the way from the main sewer system, gag me. Don't light a match, lol.

RE: Gas prices falling!

Spoke with a buddy in the oil business, he said to have everything full on 1-1-15.

RE: gel cap defective

Looks good!! That's the way to go and what I would do, but hope I don't need too. I just love how the TT mfgs tell you how great their TT's are, till the day you buy one and have an issue. But we all know that by now so we know what we're getting in to when we write the check.

RE: Anyone just keep the first trailer?

There are some that are worth putting the $$ and work into to keep it and others that are better off belonging to someone else. Like some wives. Once you part with the first one and get the second, it doesn't matter how many more you have, again, like wives. But RV's are not like ex's cuz I do miss my first Trailer.

RE: Gas prices falling!

$10 a gal, is that for Bermuda? RV trips are short there.

RE: Towing question before purchase

Sometimes I do the "weight police" thing but was going to tell you pack light, drive smart in good weather, and stay away from the Rocky Mtns. But you made a better decision. Stay closer to 28ft bumper to ball if you can and a dry weight of real close or under 6K. That way you can hit the road and travel. You will fit into more CG spots. My TT is 31 ft and I wish it was <30.

RE: Gas prices falling!

Don't try to figure it out or fret that it's going back up. Just enjoy the low prices for now. Weather diesel is $3 or $5 a gal, I still use the same amount and go the same amount. It is what it is.
