RE: Tires for TV

On my second set of Michelin LTX M/S2 and have over 105,000 miles with at least another 10,000 or 15,000 miles on my current set. No problems whatsoever. I will definitely buy another set when they need replacing. If I were off roading a lot I would probably consider something with more traction.

RE: N. Houston in early June; advice...

Coming from the western direction, you can actually take Hwy 6 which is not too bad between I10 and Hwy 290(also known locally as the northwest freeway) in terms of traffic and traffic lights or Barker Cypress Rd. if you are trying to get to the Cypress Area. I prefer Barker Cypress Rd. due to less traffic and fewer lights. As someone mentioned, there is Spring Creek Park with about 6 to 8 RV sites in Tomball (about 8 to 10 miles from the Cypress area) or there is an RV Park just off Eldridge Rd and Hwy 290) called Traders Village RV. Seems pretty clean and crowded and has a lot of long term residents due to it being next door to a very large weekend flea market and close proximity to Houston. The Rayford Crossing RV park mentioned is at least 25 miles from the Cypress area. There is also a Jellystone RV park near Waller Texas ( out west of Cypress on Hwy 290)which is about 12 -14 miles from Cypress. Don't know too much about it though. If you want more info, please PM me and I will try and help as I live in the Cypress area.

RE: Batteries

I think you may be needing a battery for a trolling motor based on your post, in that case you need a deep cycle marine/rv battery. If strictly for starting the motor you need a marine starting battery or you could use a marine deep cycle/cranking battery for starting you motor and using a trolling motor off the same battery. There is definitely a difference in battery design for these different applications, e.g. bigger lead plates, more lead plates, etc. I have purchased the last several batteries for my boat from Advanced Auto. Don't know if you have one in your area, but their batteries have a 1 year warranty and you can usually get a 15 to 25% discount if you order on line. If your local auto store has it in stock, you can pick it up the same day. Advanced auto has about the same prices you quoted before the discount. Hope this helps.

RE: Black Hills off the beaten path

Just outside Deadwood is Lead where the Homestake Gold Mine was located. They have a visitor center and a tour. This was the oldest, deepest and largest gold mine in the Western Hemisphere until it closed in 2002. It would probably be interesting to you if you are into gold mining, etc.

RE: South Llano River or Pedernales Falls

We have camped at South Llano River a number of times. It has a lot of wildlife and adjacent to it is a large state game preserve. The river is shallow, but you could probably tube in it in the Spring. Possibly fish there also along the river. Most sites have some shade and are well spaced. Don't remember any csmp sites that are very isolated by shrubs and bushes though.

RE: 2007 Jayco Eagle Super Lite 31.5 FBHS?

Since I have an 08 exactly like you are talking about, I think that $22000 is extremely high since I paid in the mid $20K range for ours new. IMHO, I think that $17.5K to $19K would be a reasonably good price.

RE: Houston to Billings, MT... What route?

I definitely would get on I25 to I90 to Billings. Never had any problems going thru Colorado Springs and Denver during off peak.

RE: 05 dodge 5.9 cummins reliability?

Over 200K on the odometer, no major issues with my '05...Intercooler was replaced under warranty (bad design), fuel tube was replaced to #4 injector (bad design)...that is the extent of failures on my motor. No "regularly scheduled" maintenance, other than fluids, usually done by me. Still have the original injectors and batteries. It has proven to be an excellent choice. Regards Gemstone Same thing happened to my 05 5.9. Check the connections regularly and you won't have a problem!

RE: Superglide Hitch

I use WD 40 on the jaws and springs, and locking mechanisms. No problems or significant wear for over 5 years. I use Slip Plate to lubricate the rails and the piece (I forget the name now) that rides on the rails.

RE: Sliding Pocket Door repair

Is it off the front roller? If so, you should be able to move the front edge of the door behind the roller it is off of, then tip the bottom of the door out (from the trim side) while lifting the front corner of the door and then slowly moving the door forward over the roller. It is difficult, but it can be done. Good luck!

RE: Painting your hitch ?

Also painted my superglide hitch with Rustoleum Semi gloss black and got new decals for free from the hitch manufacturer.

RE: Great Upgrade for $32

We've been using this product for several years, and just recently upgraded to the new one with the on/off push button. Works as advertised! We've been using one for a few years too and love it! Does the new valve actually shut the water off...or just down to a trickle? Mine doesn't cut off completely, it has a small drizzle. However, you can adjust how much water comes out by partially closing the cutoff button which helps in some situations. Which model of shower head are you using? I have an older one that doesn't have the cutoff valve. Thanks.

RE: Bent frame on new Forest River Wildcat TT

Pictures are nice - there are numerous pieces of angle iron and cross bracing under an RV - is it holding up a water tank? Is it the strip to screw the corrugated underbelly plastic to? Is it just a floor support? Is it the lateral support for stiffening the frame at the axle hangers? Lots of questions here. BTW, I've never seen a grommet used on a RV in the underbelly on typical mass produced brands... Please post a picture(s)-you may get a little more useful comments about possible cause and whether it is a critical issue.

RE: Photos from the 41 car pileup on I-81

Some of these photos of the Airstream really emphasize the point that passengers and pets absolutely should not ride in a travel trailer or 5er while underway! The survival odds are not good in a major crash!

RE: Decent RV in /near Durango ?

We have stayed at Lightner Creek several times. Clean and quite. The park is over 30 years old, but well maintained. Some sites are not as level as I would like, but considering its location I guess that is to be expected.

RE: Both Tanks Open Or Only One At A Time?

What is unsafe about having both cylinders open at the same time? Just for safety purposes, I use one tank at a time, i.e. keep the cylinder valve closed on the tank not in use. You could have a seal leak around the valve stem when the tank is open. Of course, you could have that with the tank in use, but at least you lessen your chances of a leak -IMHO.

RE: San Antonio, TX to Gulf Shores, AL

Sam Houston State Park near Lake Charles, La. That's Sam Houston Jones State Park. They have some sites that are full hookup besides some with just water and electricity. Don't know about reservations for Louisiana State Parks. Also, Stephen F. Austin State Park west of Houston off IH-10 near Sealy is nice. It has full hookups and is wooded also. You can reserve a camping site in Texas State Parks, but you can't reserve a particular site. Village Creek State Park north of Beaumont about 10 miles near Lumberton Texas is wooded-doubt that they have full hookups though. Since this is going to be around a holiday, reservations are definitely recommended.

RE: San Antonio, TX to Gulf Shores, AL

Do you want FHUs? Do you want the campground to be about 1/2 the distance between SA and Gulf Shores? With this info, we can probably give you some better suggestions.
