RE: Need smooth route east N.C. to Goshen In.

Stay off I-40 as it is rough once you leave NC and get into TN. BTW my condolences on your problems. We made that trip twice for repairs on a piece of junk Newmar fifth wheel. They never fixed it and i gave up and sold it after four years of trying. Good luck !!!

RE: Super springs vs. custom springs

Just had 1,read 1 leaf added to my spring pack. It was very $pendy to the tune of $700. That said it raised my truck 2 3/8 inches. Only drove it a short distance but my initial impressions are positive as the change is quite noticeable both in ride and appearance. Good luck.

RE: Infrared Thermometer cheeeeeeeeeep

I have an older model of what I assume to be the same HF "cheapie" and have been very happy with it for several years. Yes, big whitey, I think it would serve the purpose you're asking about Was I correct in thinking it would not measure fridge temps unless the door was open? Thanks

You pay tax & shipping at Frightening Harbor CANADIANS and other life forms (Quebecois) they have a warehouse in Maple Leaf Land Never used one of these but i am assuming that they would measure the temps somewhat accurately inside the fridge? If so i will order one immediately !!!! Thanks a bunch for the info and link. Upon further review it appears the fridge temps have to be measured with the door open. Sigh, if it sounds to be good to be true....,

RE: Worried About A Small Genset?

Best way to prevent theft of a Honda or Yamaha genset is to put a Generac cover on it. :B

RE: Long standing leak entry point found

Our TC is stored under a shelter at home when not in use. We try to avoid rainy conditions like the plague and only in the most dire circumstances will we travel in the rain. Any time we get rained on be it enroute or camping we almost literally tear it apart inside and out looking for leaks. Our TC is almost five years old and has yet to be washed with a hose, bet you can guess why. Yes i am totally and completely anal when it comes to leaks. We are equally as anal about condensation as it is a leaks first cousin. I am convinced that ALL campers were built with the full intention of leaking and rotting. In case you are wondering we clean our TC using cloth ,clear water and a bucket. Believe it or not it really isn't that hard or take much longer, least ways not to us. A side benefit is i don't have to check for leaks. Lol.

RE: Where to park 21' rv in San Francisco

Yep. You can start by losing the caps. Secondly you might try Boondockers.com which worked great for us. Good luck. Why does CAPS bother you? Does it hurt your eyes to read large letters or is it bc you imagine someone screaming and just can't take it? My phone's keyboard malfunctioned...SORRY It's exhausting to post a question and receive replies like that or the one that asked, why not stay in an RV park. We were meeting family in sf and staying in a hotel. I was looking for a place to leave the rv for a couple of days. Hence the specific question i posted. For the same reason any "normal" computer user hates all caps,hard to read. Sorry for the wardrobe uh keyboard malfunction. Lol. As for exhausting to post a question all I can say is .... really. This is a tuff forum to be part of if you are thin skinned.

RE: Can I improve my gas mileage?

Leave the jeep at home. Too much weight not enough horses/torque. I have the same truck with the 6.0 engine and only get 10.5 mpg and that is on the flats and not towing.

RE: Stinky gray water

OP here. The odor is not inside the RV. As stated previously it is smelly only when dumping which occurs immediately after showering. Just hard to understand how gray water can become stinky in a matter of minutes. That said i think i will try the suggestion of bleach and mix up a batch and let it slosh around as we travel on our next trip. Maybe that will kill whatever is "holed up" inside the gray tank. Thanks for the tips. DO you just open dump or use hoses/fittings? My sewer connections seal tight so that even though I can see movement of hose when dumping I can't smell what is flowing. And even if I could.......who cares? They are waste tanks and will ALWAYS have stuff. As long as I don't smell them inside the RV and the waste tanks drain I'm good. I use hoses but obviously the dump receptacle is not air tight so if there is odor you will smell it. I'm leaning toward just disinfecting the tank with bleach and see what happens.

RE: Sept. in Colorado: a month of dry camping & boondocking

Big Whitey, I completely agree about Aspen itself. But the area east of town, up Highway 82 toward Independence Pass, was really great -- lots of hiking above timberline, which is a rarity for us. In the Sierra, it usually takes a very long hike to get above the trees to see the "big sky" views. In Colorado, there are lots of roads (both paved and not) that lead up to the high country, and Highway 82 is one of the best for that purpose. Just don't take a big trailer past the huge "Trailers Turn Around NOW" sign, about five miles east of town on 82 -- they really mean it. We saw several semi truck drivers getting tickets, and the sign says it is a $1500 ticket. Ouch! Agree about 82 and Independence Pass,it was a gorgeous drive.

Stinky gray water

How is it possible that the gray water smells so bad when i always dump immediately after showering? We boondock exclusively and schedule our showers to coincide with areas where we can dump afterward so it never remains in the holding tank over 15 minutes before dumping. And no it is not because we are too nasty,Lol. The only other water that goes and stays in the gray tank for any length of time (2/3 days) is just from brushing teeth as we wash all dishes outside. And no our breath is not that bad,Lol.
