RE: Expired Propane Tanks

I had a 11# tank I picked up with an old-style valve. I sanded and painted it, and Suburban Propane replaced the valve and applied new decals. I can't remember what it cost though.

RE: Camping near utica NY

If you can stretch it to 3 hours there's North Pole Resort (100 Acre Woods side) in Wilmington outside of Lake Placid.

RE: Shower door problem

SEA is pretty good on customer service. Based on some posts I read last year I emailed them when the bottom seal tore on ours. They mailed me 2 replacements free of charge. Same here, along with the instructions on re-aligning the door.

RE: What do you put under your stabilizers and trailer tongue?

Pieces of 4X4 skids off a pallet, or a piece of 3X5 landscape timber.

Here's a link to a few PDF files about SEA shower enclosures including an adjustment procedure: http://manuals.heartlandowners.org/?man=/Plumbing/Shower%20Enclosure/SEA%20Neo%20Angle%20Enclosure

RE: Best sealant for side of fifth wheel

Proflex or non sag Dicor. Most of us try to avoid silicone. What he said.

RE: Stumped about switch

An outside light for the dump connection? Our Starcraft HTT had one.

RE: First Time TT Buyer

When I see "supercrew" and "1/2 ton" I worry. Like Dakota says, you'll run out of payload way before towing capacity. What's the payload as listed on the yellow door jamb sticker? 1200#? Passengers and the 1000# hitch weight will most likely put you way over the payload limit. And 34' is a lot for a 1/2 ton with "P" tires.

RE: What not to miss at Williamsburg VA.....

Most expensive area for tourism I have ever visited. Worse than Cape Cod? OP - we plan on going to Williamsburg for a week in June. No kids, so we're going to do the week-long triangle pass.

RE: Bachelor Shopping Trip

Wow! Is that an Army automatic assault gun? It is really big and scary looking! Are you sure that you can have it? Montana - Sure! NY - no way! Did I tell you I can't wait to get out of this state?

RE: Kurt Bush Reinstated

Let's see - never arrested or charged with a crime, let alone convicted. I don't think NASCAR had any choice but to reinstate him.

RE: Prodigy P3/Trailer Brakes Question

It's possible the brakes need adjusting. Will the wheels lock if you disconnect the 7-way plug and pull the break-away plunger on the trailer?

RE: Took the B-17 bomber flight!

DW's uncle was a flight engineer in WWII. We were visiting him and I saw a medal displayed in a glass case on the wall. I said "Bronze Star and Oak Leaf Cluster?" He replied "Yeah, from a long time ago and I don't want to talk about it."

RE: Battery replacement

If you always camp with hookups any battery (even a lawn tractor one) will do. For dry camping I'd upgrade to a G29 or G31-size for the small increase in cost.

RE: Starcraft 187tb

We had an '05 Starcraft hybrid for 8 years. No major issues with it and the dealer gave us a good trade-in on the new TT. We thought it was a well-made trailer. The only reason we traded it was because DW's knees are bad and climbing into the bunk end got to be a real pain (literally) for her. The only bunk end leak I had was operator error - got a piece of canvas caught in the weatherstripping. Starcraft was a victim of the '08 recession and is now owned by Jayco.

RE: Amature Wiring Diagram. I Need Help.

Looks like your 6V batteries are in parallel, not series.

RE: Charging question

Option C - Install a good deck-mounted 3-stage converter as close to the batteries as you can. There's probably way too long of a wire run with the factory setup, and WFCO's aren't known for going into boost mode easily.

RE: Whats the best restaurant .....

Brewster Fish House in Cape Cod. Awesome seafood and chowder. The View @ Mirror Lake Inn, Lake Placid NY. Fine dining if you want to splurge a bit.

RE: Cape Cod

We've stayed at Sweetwater Forest a few times. It's centrally located but as for kids' activities - ours are grown. Wandering around Provincetown is an experience. We've done a few whale watch trips but the novelty has worn off for us. +1 for the Cape Cod Rail Trail - a paved multi-use trail we enjoy biking on. Our only issue is with people pretending they're in the Tour de France and yelling at YOU to look out. If you make it that far to have to stop at Arnold's in Eastham for lunch. They have an Airstream trailer equipped as as a restroom right off the bike trail. DW enjoys the Cape Cod Natural History museum in Brewster. Nice exhibits, and you can walk the nature trail down to the ocean. Also in Brewster is the General Store and ice cream shop. Lots of novel and unique stuff in the General Store. We took the ferry to Nantucket ($$$) and spent the day there. IMHO the privately-run whaling museum there is better than the NPS one in New Bedford. The Salt Marsh Visitor Center at the National Seashore is nice. We like taking the guided canoe tours of the marsh. And you can bike to one of the beaches from the parking lot. The last time we were there I did some research and got the truck equipped so we could do some beach driving. Air down the tires, put it in 4 X 4, drive out on the beach, and spend the day at Race Point. Traffic - avoid arriving on a Friday night or Saturday, and leave early on Sunday morning, otherwise you run into the weekenders. And there's a tourist information center on rt 6 after to get to the Cape.

RE: He's dead, Jim...

Federation flags are to be flown at half mast for 30 days.
