RE: Another Atwood Helium Refrigerator Question

I guess my frig door is alright then. Looks exactly like mine and also the Norcold one I used to have. :C

RE: Another Atwood Helium Refrigerator Question

They push out to keep the fridge doors from closing shut while not in use (storage).

RE: Myrtle Beach during Christmas

Really it is a******shoot. Most often it is warm enough to just wear sweat shirts. There is still a lot to do, with the shows, And going to Broadway, and Barefoot. That time of year is one of our fav times. That's been our experience also. I can count on one hand the number of days that I can't wear shorts but often need a light jacket in January along the ocean.

RE: Stabilizer jacks

Pretty much any 18 volt drill will work fine. Years ago I had a 12 volt one but it sometimes lacked power to bring the jacks all the way up.

RE: Question on Myrtle Beach Travel Park

We'll be back at MBTP a next week, it 's where we spend our winters. No golf carts in the campground unless you have a DMV issued handicap tag/hanger on your daily driver, you must have a valid driver's permit and proof of insurance. The folks that live in the villa sections can have golf carts. We've been going to MBTP for many years. There's a lot of activities, it's close to restaurants, shopping and many attractions. We enjoy the fact that they do not rent golf carts since we are walkers.

RE: Vent Covers and Slideout Awnings

Vent covers for sure but I'm not a fan of slideout toppers. I took mine off on our previous RV, it was a real nuisance at the beach the first winter we were there. Didn't want them on our current trailer.

RE: Campground search tools

I use AllStays Camp & RV app. It has short descriptions, GPS coordinates, links to park websites, RVpark reviews, etc, and has filtering that lets you look for specific types of campgrounds (as well as Warmarts, LP, etc. I use it also, great app and the only thing I rely on now.

RE: LT vs ST's - Canadian Tires cries "Illegal!".

And so the thread is hijacked by an argument over driving in winter. The argument really started with Canadian Tire making calls about what they interpret as illegal...If someone wants to put 2 winter tires on the front (not that I agree LOL) or LT tires on a trailer, or fix a screw on a tire, Canadian Tire shouldn't make judgement on what they think is legal or illegal. They can maybe say its company policy, but not that it's illegal...unless you got the law book in your hand... It's really a province to province decision since it's typically highway code that must be followed.

RE: LT vs ST's - Canadian Tires cries "Illegal!".

Actually our snow tire law in Quebec is ironically not because of snow, it's because snow tires provide a softer tire that responds better in very cold weather. They provide better braking and control under severe cold conditions. That's why we have the four tire rule. ... Eric

RE: LT vs ST's - Canadian Tires cries "Illegal!".

Got the same song and dance when I tried to buy two snow tires for wifes car from CT,Four not two or we can't mount them. See ya. Don't know about the legality but if your wife's car is front wheel drive, I agree with CT. Here in Quebec four snow tires is the law; you cannot have two only. ... Eric

RE: LT vs ST's - Canadian Tires cries "Illegal!".

That's really nonsense on Cdn Tire's side, I would have a tendency to buy the tires and take them to my local rv repair guy for mounting and installation.

RE: How do I transfer my title to a new owner?

Up here in Quebec the transfer of the registration (plate/tag) is the way it is done.

RE: Vent covers

The only time I close the vents (3) is when we are getting blowing snow. With swirling winds, traces of snow will find their way in; not much at all but I prefer not to have have it.

RE: Frameless windows?

how far do the bottoms open? can you catch a breeze through them? I like the look but not sure on the function. It depends on which window. My trailer has them all around; the side windows open closer to 4" at the bottoms, the rear ones open about 3". Also, the bedroom and one of the living room windows open with the fire escape push out rod which has those opening closer to 4-5" at the bottom. I definitely can get airflow throughout the trailer.

RE: Frameless windows?

We have them on our Enterra and I really like them. They all open at the bottom and can be left open in the rain. Also there is essentially no caulking or leaking to worry about. I think they look great myself.

RE: Snowbirds Question

Don't understand the problem? De-Winterize? After I fill the system with antefreeze I drain it, job done. No need to keep the pipes full all the water has been displaced. Drain the antefreeze then dump it down all the drains, now all the P traps are full.... Walk away, job done. When heading south don't hook up the water till it's warm. We carry a few large jugs of water to do dishes and flush the toilet. Don't worry, nothing will freeze after day two. Exactly what we do too. :C

RE: is covering the tires necessary?

RE: Can I walk on my TT roof?

if there is no ladder on the back then no Not so, my roof is walkable (Cruiser RV-Enterra) as per the manual but I have no ladder because of the rear windows and dome roof configuration.

RE: If I sell it -- How do I get paid??

Whenever I've had to do high dollar transactions, I have my bank make the transfer arrangements.

RE: Atwood Helium fridge

I have an Atwood. You need to purge the line then retry 2-3 times per the manual. That's how mine works if I don't use the propane for awhile.
