RE: Wet Awming

So. This spring. Unroll it. Spray it down really good with Clorox II, or Awsome. Roll it back up. let is sit for several miniutes. Unroll it, and wash it. You will need a brush. but most all will come off. BTW. Try to keep the Awsome, or Clorox II off the finish of the RV, and if you can't. Wax it when finished.

RE: Here is why you should buy Tire Pres Monitoring Sys from TST

Apparently you need to know what "TPMS from TST" means to understand what you're talking about. :) Any one that has a newer vehicle, or has had a flat in the recent past should know. I personally believe that every vehicle, including trailer should come with TPMS (tire pressure monitoring system). once you drag a TT for miles with a flat. you will want one as well.

RE: Wet Awming

It's normal. they all wick water thru the roll. won't hurt a thing. but you will need to clean the mildew off in the spring.

RE: Turn heater on for the night or winterize?

I believe just a couple nights below freezing won't hurt the RV. Now if it was going to be a week or so in the teens with out warming above freezing in the day. I would be concerned.

RE: Blue Ridge Parkway camping advice

We'll be traveling the Parkway next October and would like advice on places to stay for pull-through sites. Thanks, Lee Thing is "most" of the BRP campground sites were designed for tents. And while Linville Falls, and Julian Price Park have pull thrus. they are just wide enough for the truck, and trailer tires to go thru. Which wouldn't be a problem, except that they are curved, and the trailer tends to try to run off the drive, which it can't do because of the rocks they use to lines the drive with. In other words. you will badly curb the trailer tires when you try to drive thru. Ask me how I know. there are other options however. Near Glendale Springs, there is Raccoone Holler. They have some pull thrus, and have full hookups. they are also right on the BRP. also near Linville, and Little Switzerland. Bear Den is on the BRP. Haven't been there, so don't know about pull thrus, but do have full hookups. Enjoy BTW Call early. the CGs fill early in Oct.

RE: Playing guitars with new people while camping?

One of the best trip we ever had, was when we met another couple, and played around the fire. I had my dulcimer, and he his guitar. We were in Linville Falls on the Blue ridge. Soon we had most of the CG sitting with us. even the camp host, and the Ranger. We played for hours, but did stop at quiet time, or close to it. Great memory.

Christmas present storage

Has your camper, IF it is down for the winter. Became the North Pole for you Christmas presents? I have found the camper a GREAT place to hide Christmas gifts. No one EVER goes out there. I'm the only one that goes to the camper while its home in the summer. I can promise you no one but me goes to it in the winter. So it is full of shiny new , or old Santy Claus stuff.

RE: Sound barrier

CPAP will end the problem. Many of us have had to go to the CPAP for our health. Not always. DW has taken the over night sleep test, the over night oxygen test, and it has been determined that she has no sleep apnea. However. she snores LOUD, and it is hard to stay in the same room with her. So after nearly $3000.00 in tests, we are no closer to a fix but thanks to the ACA insurance situation in the US today. we are over 2K in debt.

RE: Transmission cooler

She's a gasser. How do you overcool? What would be the result? If you cool the transmission below normal operating temps. It will not shift as it should. It may not even go into high gear. My transmission has a thermostat. It will NOT let the trany change to high before it reaches a certain temp. It only works correctly at the proper operating temp. Cold fluid doesn't flow very well.

RE: Transmission cooler

I've used the Ford Truck VIN decoder. I have a class IV towing package. Doesn't say if that includes a transmission cooler. Some have said that it does include the transmission cooler but those are small. Some have upgraded to a bigger cooler. I'm thinking along those lines. Our Ex is a 2000 Limited. I love her! It does not have to be huge. But it will be external. Most vehicle cool the transmission thru the radiator. so the line from the trany will run to the radiator. On the other side of the Radiator will be another {return} line. IF it runs straight back to the trany, It does not have a external cooler. If it runs to a cooler , and then back to the trany, Good to go. The trany cooler should always be after the radiator, so that the fluid can be cooled lower then the radiator. A good tow package will also include a power steering cooler as well. It will be on the opposite side of the vehicle.

RE: Can Someone From CW Side Explain

The RV are unlocked? Way better than one of the Dealers near us. (Not a CW} they keep theirs locked all the time, and you have to get a salesman to let you into the ones you want to see. Needless to say. I didn't buy mine there. I like to shop at my own pace, and look, and talk to DW without a Salesman hanging on me.

RE: 2-way fridge question

Just to be clear. Even when on propane your fridge needs electricity. But only to run the mother board. It will need either battery, or shore power. but it will need juice. If on battery. the fridge will also die when the battery does.

RE: Tires for F-150

Its time that I purchase some new tires for my F-150. I'm looking at a set of Cooper Discoverer ATP, anyone running these and how are they? Are they too much AT for highway driving? Thank You I like Coopers, and they last as long, or longer than the over priced, over hyped Michelins. Had those as well. I didn't buy Coopers this time because they didn't make a tire in the size, and weight range I wanted. If I could have found some I would have gladly bought them. however I used Cooper Discoverer HT Plus, rated to 2601lb. This time I ended up with Wrangler Fortitude rated to 2756lb. Yes way overkill for a 150. However they really make the ride solid while towing.

RE: Ford Super Duty Sets Guinness Flag Record

I agree even my silly comment but some burn the flag without Washington DC making any comments. what a mess we are in. chevman It is burnt torn, stepped on and even worse, with no comment, or charges. Sad what has happened to the US.

RE: New to me pop up camper

North Carolina Every semitrailer, trailer, or separate vehicle attached by a drawbar or coupling to a towing vehicle of at least 4,000 lbs, and every house trailer weighing at least 1,000 lbs, shall be equipped with brake controlled or operated by the driver of the towing vehicle. Thing is. MOST pups under 3500lb GVWR don't have brakes, unless you order them. In 25 years of towing popups. not one of them had brakes. And none of the was over 2600lb GVWR Having said that. Had I been towing with a minivan. I would have prolly added brakes.

RE: New to me pop up camper

Depends on how heavy it is and what you are pulling it with. And in truth not all pupa have brakes.

RE: Computer is old

so. finally got the new puter up and running. First had to reset it to factory. Man that took nearly all day. but it is working, and yes it does have windows 10, and no it is not nearly as good as windows 7. Much harder to use, and won't let you put in shortcuts, or choose your home page, or tool bar. But it is what it is. I'll get use to it.

RE: Computer is old

OK so. I went to Best buy. Just to look around and pick their Geek brains. While I was there they pointed me to the "open box" isle, and while there I met up with a guy from church, and he hooked me up with his Daughter in law who gave me a really good deal on what turned out to be a floor demonstration PC. It has no tower, the processor is in the back of the monitor. It is touch screen. A Lenovo IdeaCentre A7 Series. With all in one Intel Pentium 4GB Memory and 1TB Hard drive. 21.5" touch screen. She cut it from the "sale price of $455.0 to $375. We'll see. Thanks for all your imput. Now I just need to get the programs I want to keep transferred to it.

RE: Computer is old

I have had good luck with refurbuished stuff. As long as its a fairly new model, and has a good warranty. Might consider an extended warranty. Saves a lot of money. Same warranty as a new one
