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.

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: 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.

RE: Making the Change from A to TT

A SUV towing a TT is not going to ride as nice as it does without it. Between the medical and physical needs along with the massive downsize required. Then you add the setup required of a TT (no auto leveling). I would really hate to see you spend the bucks required just to have it not work for you. It might be the time to explore other ways to vacation. We all have chapters in our lives and an RV is just one of them. Do what gives you the most pleasure and have fun.

RE: What PU to Buy

I tow my Wind River 250RDSW that is just a hair over 30 ft, 6900 pounds, with my 2014 Ram 2500 diesel. I go all over the Pacific Northwest and the grades, up and down, are like they aren't there. 12-13 MPG. You want to use a 1/2 ton go right ahead, some do and love it. There are countless threads on this and this is just one more. I say get the biggest, most powerful truck you can afford and be done with it. Thats' JMHO.

RE: New RV problems

Sometimes I long for the days I slept on the ground under the stars. I could shoot in every direction and never worry about another person being out there. I am getting way too soft in my old age.

RE: Are you kidding?

Thank you!!!!!!!! now I know why I put up with all the "stuff" I do, to live in So Cal. Just getting ready for that earthquake that is overdue, could happen in the next 1000 years, or not. Then I'll be full timing it in my TT.

RE: RV Park has dog park in it.

I travel with my 115 pound Bernese Mtn Dog that I also show at times. We do not go to dog parks. He does not need to meet your dog. He stays on the end of his 6 foot leash and we have a great time. A dog park is a great place to have your dog pick up bugs, get sick, or in a fight. Any one of those will spoil a vacation. To those of you that love dog parks, enjoy. I don't hate them.

RE: New RV problems

The more I read on these forums, the more I realize that the RV industry is filled with people that are not the "sharpest sticks in the bundle". If you buy an RV, I don't care how much it costs, be prepared to fix some stuff on it and modify it to some degree. The best RV to buy is one that has been owned by a perfectionist for a few years. How many RV's are designed so that the toilet seat will not stay up?

RE: Any gain from WD on a dodge 3500

I had an 03 Ram Diesel and would not think of towing without a WD hitch and a sway control. Even just a friction sway device. If you think the 03 tows great, my 14 Ram diesel just hits it out of the park for towing and I will still use a WD hitch. I plan for that second that I need all the control I can get. Then pray that second never happens.
