RE: Narchez Trace

Take your time and stop at all the pullouts. We have stayed at all three campgrounds and find part of the charm of the Trace is staying at them and avoiding any commercial traffic or trappings. We typically read books on the history of the area in the evening to minimize generator usage.

RE: Very few "RV Dealers" sell & service motorhomes in Wisconsin

Have you tried independent shops? An RV enthusiast (Mike Hohnstein) who posts on this site is located in Germantown and might be worth investigating: http://www.autotransdesign.com/.

RE: Schwintek Slide slides out while driving

Winnebago does offer factory service. Might be a solution since dealers have been unable to resolve this issue.

RE: going from new to used

I have known several people who are new to RVs and end up changing 2-3 times in as many years before they finally have a unit that meets their needs. They all have lamented they should have held onto their first RV longer to get a better idea of what they really want instead of changing a few times and loosing thousands.

RE: New Palazzo 35.1 Day 1 Problems

I stayed in the coach over night and could not find anything wrong. The Thor Service Center was great. The few problems I did found they addressed them very quickly. I drove the Palazzo 1000 miles home with not a single issue. It never rained during my 2 day drive from Indiana to NC. It was not till yesterday afternoon did it start raining here. All this happened not two hours after the wife and I went into our Camping World and told them how satisfied we were. I think the window leak can be fixed with a little silicone caulk. I will have to schedule a visit to have CW look at the camera. I can tap the mirror housing and the camera comes back. I think the window should be removed and re-seated with proper sealant. A "little silicone caulk" is a temporary fix IMHO.

RE: Fat people and tables

In a pinch, would a stool sample work? shouldn't that question be in a medical forum? bumpy Thanks for the laugh!

RE: New Palazzo 35.1 Day 1 Problems

Two minor problems. Get them fixed and try not to get worked up! I know its difficult with your recent Thor history. Maybe Marcus Lemonis needs to fix Thor and not just your problem. It could be a multi-hour special. By the way, I do enjoy his show (The Profit) on TV.

RE: Fat people and tables

While not all table configurations are the same, I remove the back cushion for my dad when we camp together. Gives him another 2-3 in. If there is an upper lip on the bench this wouldn't work as well, but for us it works. Great approach. I was going to suggest raising the height of the table if possible. Due to height restrictions caused by a window at dinette, might not be possible. I do know that one side of my dinette has more room between table and settee.

RE: How long for your air pressure to drop?

My air leveling will stay level for at least 2 weeks. After 1 month, it needs to be re leveled. I keep an eye on it since the bags are 23 years old. I would rather repair any leaks in my building than on the road.

RE: Would you put used tires on your coach?

I wouldn't unless you know the history of the tires. Tire damage from running over weight load or not properly inflated might not be seen by the naked eye. There has to be a reason someone traded in two year old tires.

RE: Blackwater River state park in Florida

It is a very nice state park and offers swimming, canoeing and tubing. Outfitters are close by for canoes. As far as the campground, I prefer TITI and would suggest sites 25 or 26. The other camping circle is Magnolia which has a playground in the center and attracts younger families. Make sure you are well provisioned before going there as shopping choices nearby are limited.

RE: Grayton Beach State park

It is probably a 3-4 block walk from campground to beach. A pleasant walk.

RE: Great beach camping in FL

We were just at St Joseph Peninsula SP in September. It was a great temperature, had been in the keys but way to hot and buggy. The beaches there are awesome!!!!!! Sites are all an easy walk the beach. It is very natural, we saw gators, deer, snakes etc... so if that bothers you you might want to consider that. We spent a week and would go back in a flash. Saw dolphins every day, husband surf fishes and even caught a small shark. It is by far one of our favourite places. Not busy at all. We were at Topsail in the spring as well, it was a great park, but you have to take a shuttle to the beach. St Joe is one of our favorite spots in Florida. St Joe is great but no WiFi. Internet access via cell service is limited.

RE: Gen. wont hold 2 a/c's

My 1991 owner's manual states a 6500 or 7000 Watt generator is required to run both AC's at the same time. Please note this is pre-energy management systems.

RE: Onan 5500 Gas Generator

You could add Seafoam to the tank which would be four or five cans to treat 80 gallons if memory serves me correctly. Another approach would be to disconnect the fuel line at the generator and mix Seafoam in a one gallon gas can. Place gas can higher than genny for gravity feed and run for about 30 minutes. Wait 30 minutes, then run generator for another 30 minutes. If the generator runs fine, re-connect to the fuel tank line.

RE: Onan 5500 Gas Generator

Run seafoam through the carb first. If that doesn't cure the problem, then check fuel filter and lines. Ethanol in gas literally gums up the works!

RE: How do I light my water heater?

Make sure your gas valve at the tank is open. Then power up the 12 volt coach portion of the electrical. You probably have a fail safe shut off solenoid which requires the 12 volt coach power to be on to open solenoid. Then turn on the water heater.

RE: Analysis Paralysis...Class A vs 5th wheel for family

I would not like traveling in a pick up with 6 people. My vote is Class A. Either way you choose, remember Walmart is your freind to pick up supplies needed.
