RE: Question 1 - Air conditioner struggles to cool camper

I set mine to 68F and it will cool down. Once the temperature gets to around 72-73F , I set it there and it will cycle on & off as needed. Out trailer is 33' inside. This past weekend we had outside temps in the high 80's on Friday and 91 on Saturday, it was fine after a couple hours.

RE: Couldnt get cable tv to work

Did you do a channel scan while on cable? It just said no signal, so I did not. On mine, when I get a no signal message I do an auto scan.

RE: Hydraulic Levelers

On our HR Class A, I stopped using the 'auto' feature and simply deployed them manually until I felt the coach was level. I don't use a level, instead I use a bedroom pocket door and the exit door; when both will hold position without further opening or closing, the coach is level. Many rv'ers use the fridge door as a level guide.

RE: Leveling- Slide In or Out?

Leveling first lessens the chance of slides/mechanisms going out of square and binding and leaving you with a host of issues. Being simply unlevel from side to side does not present as many potential problems as both front to back and side to side for slides.

RE: slides first or stabilizer jacks first?

Level and stabilize first... Then deploy the slides Yup, that's what I do too, per my manual.

RE: Black tank chemical

I'm still able to get formaldehyde based Campa-Chem at Walmart; bought a 6-box of 8oz bottles this past Friday at the Plattsburgh NY Walmart. I've also been able to get it at the Kings Road Walmart in Myrtle Beach when we were down there in March.

RE: Penalties for Under Declaring

Canada can set any requirements they wish, I just don't get why people get upset with some of us that don't like any thing illegal entering our country including people. You're right, it's their country and their laws, yes there's a but. When my wife and I decided on a trip to Alaska via Canada, it was a nightmare trying to find the does and don't on what we could take across the border on the Canadian government website. If it wasn't for this forum we wouldn't have known about the ban on raw chicken and some other items that had just been declared as banned item just a day or two before we cross into Canada. We cross weekly and unfortunately things can change by the hour. That is why there are disclaimers on websites for both sides of the border saying to contact them for up to date information. Typically websites provide information that is the 'norm' and not the exception. Each week, I ask if anything is new but we still get caught on occasion. It's the nature of the beast! ... Eric

RE: Myrtle Beach Travel Park specific question

That's exactly what I was looking for, but now I have noticed on their website that they won't gurantee a specific site but a general area. I'm going to call them to make sure but, I don't want to drive 12 hours only to be disappointed. This is correct. They will NOT give you a site number. They have always acted like site numbers are a top level NSA secret. We book every year for the same site and time when we arrive, so a year out, and they still won't confirm the site number. :S I doubt you'll get a site with a true view of the ocean but I wouldn't let that deter me. The wind can be bad right up front sometimes and being a few spots back isn't always horrible. I agree, that's the one thing that ticks me off with MBTP. We've been going there for almost 15 years, have several friends who are part of the staff and the only time we can get 'some' assurance on a specific site is when we book for the 6-month winter span. I must admit that we have almost always gotten our 1st choice of site, and have been told when a specific site is just not available. I usually book 8-12 months ahead. ... Eric

RE: Leave slides in or out?

Mine stay open at our seasonal site from May through October unless we're not going to be there for 2-3 weeks.

RE: Myrtle Beach Travel Park specific question

Sites 96, 97A at the end of Georgia Trail and 292, 329 at the end of Memphis Trail all have ocean views through the flat openings. Check MBTP site on Google Earth to see the images. Every now and then an extremely high tide will bring water through the openings but short of a hurricane or tropical storm, it never really gets onto the sites.

RE: Ram Truck Owners

I tow an 8,100-lbs TT with a 2014 Ram 1500 without any sway and rarely any movement with a semi or bus passing me. I use an Equal-i-zer 12K hitch, no airbags. Must be something in your set up causing sway.

RE: Walmart etiquette?

To me there's no issue leaving a slide open overnight where it doesn't interfere with anything. :C I draw the line at actually trying to camp, i.e. putting chairs out, the awning out and a grill! :M

RE: I-95 Fredericksburg VA to Rte 17 north

I would also recommend the Fredericksberg KOA, it's our stop-over of choice.

RE: anode wearing strange--thoughts??

As most have already stated, it 's just normal wear and there is lots of sacrificial material left; bit of Teflon tape and put it back.
