RE: fuel stabilizer

I've always used Sta-Bil.

RE: Robust Digital Camera for Camping

I've owned several good cameras over the years and have taken thousands of photos. However I've found that the camera on my iPhone 5S just seems to beat them all for my needs now.

RE: Storing on jack stands

Never had an issue with flat spotting a tire. I just inflate them between 10-15 lbs over max, set them on 2x8's and cover them. Typically tire manufacturers suggest to over-inflate for storage.

RE: Winter is a comin

Beautiful here in the east, lots of sun but cool at night, 36F this morning in the NY Adirondacks. We have two more weeks before our seasonal shuts down on Oct 12th for the winter.

RE: Dirty awning

Another vote for Mr Clean Magic Eraser; been using them for years to clean awnings.

RE: Are slides safe to use in the closed position?

It will depend upon the manufacturer's recommendation. Our prior rv was a 2009 Class A and it was ok to use the dinette & sofa which were on the full-wall slide. Our current trailer manual does not recommend using the furniture with the slides in. You really need to have a look at the manual for whatever units that you are considering.

RE: Winterizing

We keep it winterized from mid-October through the end of April unless we are down south. I left it one year unwinterized in early April after we returned from the south and the city water pipe leading into the trailer froze and split.

RE: Sault St Marie (over the lakes) to Vermont Need Help

17 to Ottawa 417 Ottawa toward Montreal At Quebec, 417 becomes Quebec 40 At Vaudreuil, west of Montreal, go straight on 30 instead of staying on 40 to Montreal. If I recall, it's a tricky interchange. 30 goes all the way round Montreal on the South Shore South on 15 toward US or which ever way you prefer. Yeah, this is pretty much what I would use. Depending what part of Vermont you are heading to, there are several routes once you clear Montreal.

RE: Slideout stabilizers

I've got a neighbor whose wife won't sit on the sofa in our TT because it's in the slide and she's scared it might fall out. Some people are just that way. :) Simply amazing! She would not be able to sit or sleep anywhere in our's; sofa, chairs, dinette and bed are all on various slides ! :E

RE: Built in GPS's

I'd love to have a built-in GPS but could never justify paying that much for an inferior product. I think the option was like $3000 and then I have to pay a couple hundred every couple years for an update. Ridiculous when I can buy a Garmin off the shelf for $150 with superior GPS software and lifetime updates. My built in Garmin with live maps was under $700; my dealer threw it in as part of my deal. ... Eric

RE: Built in GPS's

Mine is live from Garmin. It was an expensive option but is always up to date.

RE: How to avoid Mice thru Winter Storage

I use an anti-rodent spray all around the chassis outside. A funny thing happened with my seasonal camp neighbor two years ago; mice made nests with his Bounce dryer sheets. We still laugh about it.

RE: also powered by my deep cycle batteries?

It sounds like you have weak batteries. The sound of the repetitive "clicking" is probably a relay opening and closing. If you're plugged into shore power and have a working converter, the converter is supplying charge voltage to the batteries and hence, supplying power for the slide mechanism.The shore power didnt help. hope my converter is ok. Pretty much what I would expect to happen if your battery is weak; as Chris mentioned the converter would likely not generate enough if the battery is not up to parr. Before much else, I would put a meter on the battery to see how it is.

RE: also powered by my deep cycle batteries?

Hydraulic slides typically require that the battery has sufficient charge and is in good shape. A weak battery even if plugged into ac power through the converter will often result in the hydraulic slides not functioning properly. That's been my experience.

RE: Show me the Way !!!

I would post your comments or questions to either the Travel Trailer forum or simply to the General RVing issues forum. It resembles a large travel trailer but with some residential amenities such as the fridge. Good luck with your new unit.

RE: Screen door inside latch

Lippert makes one. I ordered it from my dealer and replaced the plain-Jane panel. It's what we have, works great.

RE: Saint Stephen/Calais Crossing

Processed fruit and veggies, canned or frozen are ok. We do a lot of our weekly groceries over the border and this time of year even some fresh fruit such as apples are ok. ... Eric
