RE: HELP!!! Rotted floor in fifth wheel bedroom slide!

Sadly you too are being subjected to the misery of newmar ownership. Our 2003 38' mountainaire fifthwheel went back to the factory 3 times for various issues the three years we owned it. After 3 years we decided to cut our losses and got rid of that overpriced piece of junk. Sure hope you find a better resolution of your issues than we did. Good luck.

RE: Weber Go Anywhere grill - what do you use for a bag?

I have & love the same grill. We store ours in a seed/feed type bag in the back seat of our truck. Works great and never have grease get on anything.

If someone had told you at age 20 what you would be doing when you turned 65, I bet you would not have believed them. Well done, and keep going! wrong post.

RE: 4x2 or 4x4?

4x4 you don't need it...till you do. rather have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

RE: All Roads Lead To Roam Part II, Roam Sweet Roam

Great work Dave, we are so spoiled here as we have all come to expect nothing but perfection from you. Your TR prowess is surpassed only by your selflessness. You are truly a giving person of both your time and talent. Love the pics of the girls. Elaine says hi to you Lynn and the two cuties.

RE: 12v Air compressor question!? High Volume? Beach camping

how long does it take to air up a tire from 20 to 80 lbs with one of the high end 12v compressors? i use a small tankless 110 (cost $100) in conjunction with the H2000. it takes about 3 minutes to air up each tire from 20 to 80 lbs. probably takes a total of 20 minutes from start to finish which includes the digging out and repacking of the H2000 and the air compressor.

RE: DW wants to watch tv,help!

No 12v plug is good for about 8 amps that's 96w Your tv, DVD, satellite receiver, will use at least that much, possibly more Better to connect inverter at/near batteries and run an extension cord inside RV to the tv area i have used the 12v plug for my 20" tv,receiver and winegard traveler without issue using a 200w inverter but agree it is better to come staight off the batteries.

RE: mileage?

2002 GMC 2500 HD 6L gas and I get around 11.7, 11.9 on a regular basis. I get a lot better in the mountains 12 - 14. Would love better but honestly have not found it. My brother is getting in the 40's with his big diesel when pulling a huge cargo trailer. I would love to put my camper on his truck to see what happens. I suspect that MPG would drop like a brick but would be cool to see. Huh?

RE: DISH 211z setup

i am not all that techie all i can do is report my experiences which were less than stellar. their technology is dated at best and you WILL need to be a techie to have any chance of successfully using their product. i'm sure others much more knowledgeable than i will chime in and explain why KVH comes with their own unique list of ongoing software maladies.

RE: DISH 211z setup

I just purchased a DISH 211z sat rec from camping world. I have a Class A MH with a KVH R5 on the roof and a Winegard Carryout. I'm curious if you have any words of wisdom on setting this all up. It appears there is only one SAT In jack on the back of the recvr and two outputs from either antenna. The KVH is set up for Direct TV, so I believe there will be issues there. Any advice you can provide will be appreciated. Thanks in advance for your replys. not trying to be a negative nellie but if you have a KVH you are pre destined to have issues be it direct tv or dish.

RE: By chance

My Tiger has a band of non-hardening caulk around the cab-coach junction. It gets pretty crummy looking, apparently from dust & dirt sticking to the caulk's surface. The techs at the factory suggested 'Soft Scrub With Bleach' and a small soft brush. Do it just before washing, so it all gets rinsed off. I used it, and it worked. Needs to be done again. Jim, " 'What position did you get in the reorganization?' 'Organ donor.' " thanks for the tip,i will give it a try. guess you just have to be very careful not to scrub too hard as it could render your caulk useless. trying to avoid the classic case of cure worse than disease scenario.

RE: By chance

Is this caulk you applied yourself, and if so: do you remember the type/brand? I ask because many such products are meant to be painted; they simply don't/won't stay the white color they begin as. If this is true of yours, just wash/dry the surface, then hit it with some white paint. Edges of masking tape will keep the paint off surrounding surfaces. caulk is OEM. painting is definitely not an option.

RE: By chance

Thanks for the suggestions. maybe someone that has had and resolved this issue will point me in the right direction. Seems like WD 40 would damage the caulk or the seal. Surely i'm not the only one out there with dirty caulk. :B
