RE: Replacement Tires

Check Craigslist or your local tire dealer for a set of used tires. Check the build date, though. Build date? They are USED! :S

RE: Dogs in RV parks

The worst behaved dogs are the ones riding in grocery carts at the local Walmart. In my experience those grocery cart dogs have been some of the nicest/friendliest dogs I have ever met. bumpy Don't you just love to set your lettuce where the dog's butt was? Absolutely hate seeing dogs in grocery stores! For that matter why does everyone think they need to bring their dog to Lowes?

RE: Chevy S10 and Ultra Lite Trailers.

I had a 1985 Chevy S10 and it towed a 2000 pound pop up for a while. With a trailer you will have more wind resistance ce with the frontal cap being much higher than a pop up. It may pull, but actual towing at highway speeds and it will be struggling. There is a huge difference between an '85 S-10 and a '03. I have an '86...I know. The largest engine you could get in '85 was a 2.8L V-6. A 2003 could have a 4.3L Vortec...HUGE DIFFERENCE. Need to make sure you know what your talking about. The 4.3 will do it no problem. If he has the 4 cy, you will be correct.

RE: Keystone Cougar HC design flaw with rear cabinets.

I have a 2014 Keystone High Country 321 RES Travel Trailer. There is a design flaw in the rear cabinets. Should one of the cabinet doors open while the slides are in and you open the slide, it can catch the open cabinet door and tear the door and its frame apart. I found out the hard way. I heard a crunch and did not know where it was coming from. The door survived, but I had to rebuild the cabinet frame. It took a few hours of time. The easiest solution is to tie the doors together so they wont open much. Not a design flaw. I would bet your owners manual states something to the effect of "ensure there are no obstructions or anything that will interfere with slide movement before operating". The flaw is not in the design...

RE: Don't buy a Thor product

Do not buy a Thor product. We bought a new 2018 Thor Quantum in the fall. When it came in on Nov. 1 there were 8 major problems like a crack all the way across the table, a broken window, 2 dents in the floor, chip paint on the outside, etc. It was taken care of at the dealer and we finally got it and left MA in December. Since then we have had 17 other major problems including 2 times when the refrigerator hasn't work, a tv the doesn't work, water coming into the bathroom and bedroom when I used the black water cleanout system, a stove that had a gas leak. I can go on and on. But Thor response is for us to just keep going back to get service and for us to pay to stay in hotels for a couple of day and pay for our own food, gas etc. In 6 weeks living in the vehicle we have not had 1 day when everything works, and on the several occasions when I call Thor they don't seem to really care beyond a general "sorry to hear that". I would recommend a Thor product any day. My Keystone (Thor) has been really trouble free from day one. So has probably hundreds of thousands of other.

RE: Heavenly Southern Buttermilk Pie

I grew up on my mother's authentic buttermilk pie. Make sure you leave out the nutmeg. That's not original to the pie. For your version

RE: RV toliet

It is always better to put your rig...1999 38' Monaco Windsor...in your signature so people don't have to hunt for it. But in answer to your question, yes, I did have to replace my toilet. The metal mechanism that flushed it rusted out. Before that, I repaired it a couple times. Here's the article I wrote about it. My rig was a '94 so it's possible there enough similarity that you'll find the article useful: Replacing toilet... Why a toilet is a toilet and the question can be answered just as it was asked.

RE: Propane Fill Personnel Training Lack of !!!

Had a nice experience today at the local propane filling place. I took 3 30 lb tanks in. The guy comes out, tells me the first tank is out of date. The sticker says 8/17. The original mfg date is 9/04. I just purchased 2 trade in tanks in September. One good til 4/20, the other good til 8/22. The "no good" one was one of them. I also had a new tank, mfg dated 7/17. That one, he tries to loosen the vent screw, attempting forcibly to turn it the wrong way to loosen it. He damages the screw then tells me the valve is no good. I told him he was turning it the wrong way. He tries other way and it loosened right up. This is the second time this tank has been filled. He told me he was doing me a "favor", I guess by filling them. I questioned his qualifications to fill propane tanks. He got mad and got another person out there to fill them. I may find a new propane supplier, but they are right around the corner from home, and give a good price drop @ 13 gallon purchase point. The price drops from $3.29 to $2.69 per gallon. I usually get 14 to 21 gallons at a time. Saving $7 to $10 helps. When I went in to pay, I told the counter person that perhaps the propane attendant could use a refresher course and explained what happened. In general, it makes me very unhappy when my items are damaged while still almost new, by incompetent personnel. Now I need to see if I can replace the vent screw without replacing the entire valve It's awesome that you know everything.

RE: Easy to store hashbrowns

Different brand names are available everywhere. We get ours at Publix in the dairy isle.

RE: multiple problems with new Forest River

Probably should have checked these things over at the dealer BEFORE SIGNING THE PAPERWORK! The battery on the other hand have the dealer install a new one. The rest, while they may be problems you should have thoroughly checked all the systems before leaving the lot. I know my local dealer goes so far as to fill all the tanks and run all the systems. But it is still up to you to check them.

RE: Dogs in RV parks

Dogs and kids are two worse annoyances in the campgrounds. I have yet to anyone's who is well mannered and have never seen anyone that did't think theirs were angels.

RE: Walmart and other free camping

As said before, it's Overnighting not camping. I think the important thing is, keep a low profile and be courteous. Always ask for permission if possible. And don't just look for a Walmart, there are other places in addition to Casino Camper. Enjoy your trip. Overnight VS camping is purely semantics. You are very incorrect --Overnight means you pull in you maybe run the Generator a little bit for TV or air condition and you go to bed . camping you put out your chairs put out your awnings put out grill that is camping Wrong, anything I do in my camper is camping. Weather its an quick stay or not it's still camping.

RE: What should I have done?

I felt I had plenty of distance between myself and the truck. We were on a slight curve and the trooper was completely blocked from my view. I am always very conscious of this because a motor home does not stop as fast as a car. Also I did hit the brakes as soon as I saw the trooper. I you could not see a police car of the shoulder ahead of you that means you were following the truck too close.

RE: ignition fob , wet

I once washed and dried and SD card and amazingly all of the data was still intact and just fine. I was really amazed it could stand up to the heat of the dryer. Google says dryers are around 135 degrees. Commercial grade IC's operate up to 185 degrees and well over that for industrial grade (250+). They could survive even hotter temperatures when powered off. The dryer is a piece of cake. Its not the heat, the banging around is not good for it. Not to mention high amounts of static electricity (ESD).
