RE: Sliding closet doors keep coming off the track, how to fix

You just need something on the top of the door so it won't go up. Just a small piece of anything right next the roller. Yes, something like a metal corner brace cut to size. Could be attached on the inside of the closet on each door. The part of the corner brace that would ride under the track would need to be cut no longer than the width of the door. I would put two on each door at the ends of the door. Should completely stop the door from raising. http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/31KObm6g5gL.jpg width=600

RE: Getting Through Yellowstone

No problem. Just be ready for the gridlock which happens quit often. Yep... people see a squirrel, stop in the middle of the road, take a thousand pictures, try and feed the squirrel then realize there are 50 vehicles lined up behind them and they move on. Then you pray no one else in the line-up of 50 backed-up cars does the same thing. But you are usually praying to someone not listening.

RE: Loading and unloading Motorcycles-The easy way

I'm interested in this issue right now because I need to pull a trailer behind my FW with two Yamaha TW200 and a 650 V Star. I wondered about a way to at least spin the v star around or be able to put them on from one side and off the other side like some quads are loaded. See if they make a centerstand for the V-Star, I can spin my 1800 Goldwing around on the centerstand TURNCYCLE MOTORCYCLE CENTER STAND DISC Only aware of it, haven't used.

RE: Replacement RV furniture

Has any body ever ordered replacement rv furniture on line ? How was the experience ? My main concern is the described size. Was it what the description said it was? I think if it was an inch or two larger than the description said ... I'm interested in the responses to this as well.

Also, USE a torque wrench. It is very easy to over-tighten aluminum and stretch/strip threads. A properly used torque wrench will help solve this issue for you. Replace now and use the torque wrench from here on out.

RE: Route Canon City, CO to Moab, UT

If you enjoyed the scenery on rt 128, also consider driving down rt 279 which continues along the CO river but on the south side of town. Early in the drive next to the river, pay attention to any parked cars on the road... chances are they are climbing the big canyon walls there so stop and take a look. You can also drive on the opposite side of the CO river and that road is Kane Creek Road. Travels along the river for a number of miles then heads up out of the river canyon. Both are some interesting drives and worth it and OK for your truck. And BTW, good thing you made it through there earlier today as I got a weather warning about a winter type storm moving through the high country. Got the warning since I'm less than 2 1/2 hours from Monarch Pass and current radar shows they are getting snow :E

RE: CA to MO, best route?

We are driving from So Cal to Eureka, MO in just a few weeks. This is a one-way trip since we are relocating to MO. We are driving our new Thor Hurricane gas powered RV. What is the best route to take? Northern route through CO or southern through Texas? Any tips are appreciated! If I were taking the trip I'd take I-15 to St George - jump off drive through Zion and Bryce up Rt 12 to Capital Reef stopping at as many Utah State Parks that are on the Route (escalante -kodachrome - goblins - just to name drop a few) Then down to Moab and out Rt 128 along the Colorado River (Arches - Canyonlands - Dead Horse Point) - then into Colorado Colorado National Monument down to Ouray (Black Canyon - Marble - Maroon Bells) Gunnison to Salida to Buena Vista and Leadville (K's - Quincy's - Independence Pass - Arkansas River - Turquoise Lake - Collegiates) Then out I-70 to Exit 244 Rt6 through Golden then on to Missouri. Easy enough - and BEAUTIFUL - I mean to go from Cali to Missouri and miss all that is "Just Not Right" No doubt about it that is the "Best Route" - now if you wanted to add a few months we could make the "Best" "Better". BOL, I may be biased... but skipping this area of the country when you have the potential to see it should be considered a crime. Busskipper is right. And to the mention of I70 being challenging... define challenging? It really is not that bad during summer months but sure is a beautiful drive in the areas of UT and CO. Busskipper threw out some great suggestions but if time is important, you could pick a couple things off of Busskipper list or just stick to I70 and still see some great land.

RE: Arctic Fox exterior speakers

...in the event I forgot to turn the Vader all the way to "inside". Does that ever lead to passing comments like - "Don't fail me again, Admiral." :B sorry 'bout the bad joke :)

RE: REEFER: Common Practices

TT goes into a storage lot when not in use. No electricity at the storage lot. Last storage lot did have electric available but was an extra charge... TT was not plugged in there either so fridge was turned off and battery disconnect used. Currently, refrigerator gets emptied, turned off and both doors are open to dry out and not mold. Battery disconnect used.

RE: Airstream - Olympics in Rio bound

That picture wasn't, by chance, taken in the Gearhart/Warrenton area specifically near Surf Pines was it? It looks awfully familiar as if it is where I'm thinking that was, I walked there frequently.

RE: RV 7 pole plug won't fit. Help please

All 6 outer clips along with the center connection and the large alignment tab look like they would fit. However, inside your truck's connection looks a bit dirty... maybe try to clean it out a bit using some paper towels with electrical silicone spray??? The spray might help the RV plug slide in better too. BTW, here is a GM 7-pin connector being sold on ebay that has a picture which looks identical to yours with the 3 additional small groves. http://www.ebay.com/itm/GM-Chevy-Silverado-Tahoe-GMC-Sierra-Trailer-Plug-7-Pin-/301856958676?hash=item464813a8d4:g:VYIAAOSwZd1VdaBG&vxp=mtr

RE: Route Canon City, CO to Moab, UT

you will find Monarch pass west of Salida a bit of a challenge, but lots of big rigs do it every day. Yes, and not many options avoiding a pass(es) in CO. OP, The route you have chosen would absolutely be the route I would take. Salida/Poncha Springs/Buena Vista are great areas to hang out in but sounds like you are just passing through Salida area. Monarch Pass is a great drive too and it is not too bad... just gear down on the descent. I take my TT over that pass a lot and do not find it nerve racking. Hwy 50 around Blue Mesa Res. is very scenic and worthy of picture taking. Then the eastern descent into Montrose is not bad at all.

RE: Using foam in a can to fill gaps

If you haven't worked with it before, be aware that it's rather messy stuff. It'll stick very well to your clothing, your skin, your cute little Scottie with the red bandanna around her neck.... Got a nice little chuckle out of that :)

Hi to all. we are full time in a campground. Can antifreeze or something else be put in the holding tanks to keep them from freezing? Thanks God Bless. Here is some great info on winter camping that may help you: Winter RV camping - post #1 courtesy of Tiger Run Resort, Breckenridge, CO

RE: Best Route Pulling 39' TH Salt Lake to Denver

Stick to Interstates...........I80(E) to Cheyenne then I25(S) to Denver Actually, a preferred route is E on I80 to Laramie. S on 287 into Fort Collins then E over to I25 and S from there. NO ONE should have to go through Cheyenne ;)

RE: Best Route Pulling 39' TH Salt Lake to Denver

The easier, and shorter by about 5 miles, route is via I80, especially if your destination is north of Denver. But, it is MUCH MORE scenic over I70. If you're moving to Denver, you'll have plenty of time to hit the I70 corridor up to the high country and out to Moab so maybe 1st impressions into CO won't matter as much. BTW, you will want to know about Taylor Park,

RE: Is there a QUALITY Travel Trailer still built?

I think my gripe is a little different than most, I purchased my used already 10 years old. I still paid $9,000, but it was a bumper pull toy hauler don't even know how to light the water heater, don't care. never mounted the tv in the corner like its supposed to, actually sold the tv instead . but, that darn roof, I refuse to play that silly game, climb up twice a year, if you don't, your trailer will turn worthless in a few years.. How come I never have to check the roof of my silverado truck for leaks ? it does have a funny ONstar or XM antenna coming out of the roof, how did they find a way to have that never leak, but campers can't ? why do I have to caulk my camper antenna every year ? But you do need to do maintenance by changing the oil, oil filter, fuel filter, air filter, etc. Just the way it goes.
