RE: Best Honey wagon

I use a 30-gallon (easy to do 55-gal though) plastic drum in the back of the truck bed. Filled with a Flojet macerator pump and emptied though an 1-1/2" sump pump hose and gray water valve. We do 2 weeks at a time at our favorite no-hookup campground.

RE: new camper

'Ya pays yer money, and 'ya takes your chances...... We bought our Heartland North Trail at a small family dealership. They were very accommodating to some extra work we wanted done before delivery, and even re-packed the bearings for us. It had a few minor issues but I never took it back to the dealer. While we love the floorplan and features in our Grand Design, it's been back to the (chain) dealer twice for a total of 33 days and still isn't right.

RE: ? Macerator Pump Head Capability

Flojet pump, 35' of 3/4" hose, pumped into a 30-gallon barrel in the bed of my pickup. No problems, though the Flojet doesn't like to be run dry.

RE: Solaire 312tsqbk

We looked at them, didn't appear to be a bad TT. IIRR the model we were looking at didn't have an external hood vent though.

RE: Terrible workmanship in our new trailer

And now you know why the RVIA fights so hard against RV's being included under any Lemon Laws.

RE: main 30a circuit breaker problem

Will the 30A breaker reset if you turn all the other breakers off?

RE: Newbie needs help with tow vehicle

If Ford had the 2.7EB when I bought my F150 I probably would have gone with it. But since I have the 3.5EB I don't think I could take a a step backwards. I'm sort of half-looking at a new truck but all the F150's on the lot seem to have the 2.7.

RE: Terrible workmanship in our new trailer

14 nights camping and 33 days at the dealer for our new TT. Among other things only the rear brakes were working, I found this out after I jacked up a front wheel, pulled the break-away pin, and the wheel kept spinning. I wondered why this TT was pushing so hard on braking. Then the dealer tried to blame it on my brake controller! PDI? We found several items when we looked at the TT on the showroom floor. Our salesman assured us they would be taken care of before delivery. Ha! - nope.

RE: Gas Choice

My small engines get E0 gas. I don't use a stabilizer but I will run a bit of 2-stroke gas / oil mix in them before storing them to keep the gaskets from drying out. And the 2-stroke oil has stabilizers in it.

RE: Things for the new travel trailer

RV toilet paper. Expensive hype IMHO. We quit using it 10 years ago and never had an issue.

RE: Need lug nut info

Probably 1/2-20. You can always buy a single lug nut and try it.

RE: Axle Camber

We have a good frame / axle / heavy truck shop locally. They straightened the Lippert 3500# axles on my previous TT.

RE: Road Trip Playlists?

"I Can't Drive 55" by Sammy Hagar. Ditto on Sirius. Classic Rock, or Spa if DW wants it.

RE: Bottle Jacks to stabilize

I use a couple of automotive scissors jacks to add stability. $5 flea market items.

RE: RVers who buy up campsites

From the NY DEC regs: "Campsite or cabin must be registered and occupied by 9pm on the first night of the reservation or it will be subject to re-rental and fees may be forfeited."

RE: Road Rage...Help

I had my CDL at 18, even before they were called CDL's. You just learn to roll with it.

RE: Jury Duty ?

I got a notice for jury duty the 2 weeks we had a trip planned. I called and they postponed it a few months. DW got a notice but begged off since she was the primary care giver (AKA Nanny) to our 2 grandchildren. They haven't called back yet.

RE: Making a lighter load.

We got a new TT a few months ago. When we cleaned out our previous TT we took a had look at the stuff we had and never used.
