RE: What's the worst storm you have been in while camping?

Hurricane Frances in 2004 in our 5th wheel (at the time).

RE: Tourism Surcharge in Niagara Falls Canada

Gary, to be honest I had never experienced this in all my years of traveling throughout N-America during my working life. I've been to 44 states and 9 provinces and cannot recall ever seeing such a charge. It must be something relatively new or hidden under some other form within things like hotel invoices etc... ...

RE: Snowbirding and beach or pier fishing.

Myrtle Beach, SC Good surf fishing for flounder, blues and the odd red drum in September thru mid-November. January and February are pretty much dead except for the odd blue, the water is too cold. Things pick up in March. Also the odd shark and sea trout.

RE: Direct drive slideouts

We were at the local RV show this past weekend and I overheard sales rep telling buyer that they are far superior to the old slide mechanisms and that all the high end mfgs are going to them...The 'real' high end units are not using them...at least not as of October 2014. Actually Winnebago and some others have been using them for a few years.

RE: Something interesting to try with your Equal-i-zer

Towing with the 2010 Dodge and GM trucks looked downright dangerous! Towing with the Ford and it's new integrated braking system looked like it was not a white knuckle ride at all. Have fun camping! Fred. ======================= I don't know about the GMC but Dodge Ram has "Trailer Brake Control" and "Electronic Stabilizer Control" built right in the truck. Happy trails, Yup got it on mine.

RE: Florida Cell Phone Taxes/Charges

I use an AT&T Go Phone with unlimited talk, text and data. It has an upstate NY area code where I use it in the summer months and in SC in the winter. Other than my one total monthly usage fee, I don't see any state taxes anywhere.

RE: Stands/Jacks under the slide outs

Manual? Instructions? What are those ?? Those are the things that might just save you a lot of time or money some time!

RE: Auto battery problem

Birddog, looks like that may be the culprit.

RE: Stands/Jacks under the slide outs

Check your manual; most that I have seen indicate not to place supports under the slideouts. Slides are typically made to be self-supporting.

RE: Direct drive slideouts

I have the Schwintek system and it works well. The motors can be disengaged to manually retract the slides if something goes wrong. I've had mine for about a year now with no issues. The only thing to remember is not to stop the slideout going out or back in part way. Once to hit the button you need to let the slide run to it's complete operation. Here's a link to the manual to show how to disengage the motors; http://www.primetimerv.com/download/ComponentManuals/Chassis-Lippert-MasterComponentManual.pdf

RE: Auto battery problem

Thanks for posting your findings. I would be very interested in your final results, these things can be hard to isolate and could happen to any one of us at some point. ... Eric

RE: Is a house battery necessary if plugging in at campground?

I believe that model has a rear motorised slideout. It may require a battery in a good condition to operate. As do many slideout systems, the converter/charger may not produce sufficient power to move it.
PackerBacker 01/22/15 05:59am Beginning RVing

There are plenty of properly equipped newer 1/2 ton Pick ups that can pull 8k quite well. The key is to get the right options. True, mine tows great and is very stable. I usually hate to post things like this because of all the nay sayers that usually pipe in. However, I went from a 3/4 ton to a half ton because it simply rides better/more comfortable (still use it occasionally but not to tow). We also tow a 30' race hauler with a one ton diesel dually and although it too tows great, it's really a tough ride over the long haul. Proper set up is everything.

RE: Auto battery problem

If you have a meter and are able to get the Jeep started, see what kind of voltage the system is sending to the battery; I would expect 13.6 to 14.5 volts. From there you can determine if the problem is in the Jeep or actually a bad battery.

RE: equal-i-zer and backing up

Backed mine up close to 90 degrees a number of times and never had an issue.

RE: Removing WDH at site

I fall into the group that removes the hitch and bars and stows then in the bed of the truck. Same here.

RE: Trans Canada highway

Another vote for Allstays Camp & RV, it's all I ever use now.
