RE: Toilet paper test

To really test the different toilet paper, put two pieces in two containers with lids on. Let sit for 5 minutes and then shake. Now you will see which one breaks down the most! Good Luck & Drive Safe! And what is this suppose to prove?

RE: Slideouts @ WalMart Redux

So how are they going to keep the "dry campers" out of their facilities such as the bathhouse? That's an easy one ... issue keys to regular paying customers or have combination locks on all facility doors that only regular paying customers have the combination to. We've stayed at many, many commercial campgrounds that required use of issued keys or combination locks on their facility doors. The point is "IF" a commercial campground wants to start using some/any of it's extra land/acerage to at least get $10/night for one-night-only stop-overs ... then install a key or combination systems on the doors of it's facilities. We'd gladly use $10 one-night-only spots in commercial campgrounds as much as we could on RV trips .... whenever we were enroute to/from more beautiful multi-night camping places on state and federal lands. You know I kinda though of that when I posting, but thought it to be way too big a pain in the rear for everyone. Besides all I have to is wait for you to come to the facility and "oops forgot my key" and there you have it.

RE: Toilet paper test

Three days ago I took four squares of Camco RV toilet paper and the same amount of what we use in the house. Both folded and placed in separate mason jars half full of water, no other additives. After three days there is no discernable difference in the amount of break down. So is there an advantage to using the expensive paper sold for RV use? Another one who has drank the "toilet paper test" kool-aide. So what did your test prove? Absolutely nothing! How fast a toilet paper "breaks down" in a mason jar on your kitchen counter proves what? You RV holding tank is not a mason jar nor is it a septic tank. Who care is your toilet paper breaks down in 30 sec or 3 days? It doesn't mean a thing and has no real-world application. Most people only keep the waste (including TP)in their tanks for anywhere from 1 day to a week at most. So to use your results...both papers broke down in three days, if you overnight at a CG with hookups and dump the next day what about the toilet paper? That's right its going out that big pipe in large pieces along with the rest of the solids, helped along it's merry way by lots o' water and gravity. Get yourself one of those clear adapter things and look. Bet no matter how long you wait there will be wads o' paper coming out. Toilet paper test proves nothing. Want a real test of toilet paper. Take a poop and wipe. Did it clean adequately? Do you have any adverse affects, itching irritation? If the first answer is yes and the second no guess what...your toilet paper passed the test!

RE: Toilet paper test

We use "septic tank safe" and have had no problems. We both hate single ply. RichH All toilet paper is septic safe...show me one that's not. All TP is biodegradable ...show me one that's not.

RE: Slideouts @ WalMart Redux

I'll post again what I've mentioned a few times in these forums: RV park owners could get more of my money on our RV trips if they offered dry camping spots available for one night only - with no use of their facilities allowed other than dumping of trash. I'd rather pay $10 for a single-night-only dry camping spot in an RV park instead of free Walmart parking lots, free Cabellas parking lots, free Cracker Barrel parking lots, free Port of Entry parking lots, free church parking lots, etc.. RV parks are generally more secure, prettier, and quieter than parking lots. As a result, RV parks get none of my money many times when they could get $10 of my money many times for one night stop-overs. It's no different than retail stores having a full time bargain bin for selected items on sale. RV parks need to do the same. Yep, definitely agree. So how are they going to keep the "dry campers" out of their facilities such as the bathhouse? Honor system?...yeah right. Once inside the park or cg there is no way to differentiate you at $10 form anyone else at full price. Now you have people doing laundry and denying services to people who paid for it. Nice try but unless you can come up with a reasonable way to discriminate then the idea is bogus.

RE: Catastrophic tire/wheel failure, PLEASE READ!

Did you follow the instructions and re-torque the wheel studs after the first 200 miles? He mentions that he torqued with a torque wrench in his post. OP, sorry for your experience. I think you did the right thing reporting to NHTSA, but I am not sure where it will go. It will be very difficult to now prove that the studs were not over torqued, and the tire manufacture will likely claim you hit something causing that failure. I lost a wheel a few years back. The service technician who recently repaired my trailer did the right thing and paid to repair the damage, but if he didn't, my insurance would have covered it. Hopefully you have more relaxing trips ahead. Re-torque is different checking torque.

RE: 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Adapters

The reason Lippert approves the Reese Goose Box has everything to do with marketing and nothing to do with structural engineering. Lippert has exclusive marketing rights to the Goose Box in the RV market. It's all about the money. Wow it's nice to see someone that knows more than the manufacturers. :R

RE: ST225/75R15 Load range D

Thanks for the replies.My tires are hitting three years old now with very little miles on them so I think before long I will upgrade and replace them before we have issues. I always go 65 MPH or less and make sure the air is at the max before we leave. I am not sure what brand to look at now since all are made off shore. Curly Fatal mistake number one with ST tires, is thinking about replacing them and not doing it ASP. One after making that statement and not carrying through is soon chinabombed. Put Maxxis M8008 or Carlisle Radial RH LRE tires on it now! Chris Hell has now froze over, you are recommending ST tires?

RE: Going "cheap" - a new "rant" - just wondering "why?"

Looking at the title of this thread, there must have been a sale on quotation marks. Ah, the OP hates the word cheap, but admits that he negotiated to get the cheapest price he could on his trailer. Hmm, guess it only counts as not cheap when he does it. :E

RE: Broken toilet!

Amazon has a couple that you can get next day air. What address are they going to send it to? Trailer at site #36? Yep. I get my stuff delivered to My site in Arizona all the time. UPS will figure it out. Alternative is to have it held for pick up at UPS. Or a UPS delivery point. YEP........had stuff delivered to CGs Had stuff delivered to local post office..'General Delivery' (check that they accept GD -----not all post offices do) Had stuff delivered and held for pickup at UPS RandACampin It's the 21st Century......lots of options. One doesn't have to keep their head buried I am aware of the century, and order many thing from Amazon. Just can't see them delivering to a campsite. Is fed ex/UPS going to pay the fee to enter a state park? What a bout gated CGs. In the OPs case find it local and be done...less headache.
