RE: Replacing the kitchen faucet - anyone done that?

I don't know what is going on here! RV water WILL NOT pass through a household type faucet. I know this is true because I overheard a salesman at CW tell a customer. :W

RE: Securing chairs to back wall?

We don't tie ours down and they have never moved in almost 6 years of full timing. Yes, we do move around.

RE: No brakes

Personally. If it were me. I would stop at the first place I could. I KNOW I would not run an interstate for 450 miles Bowling Green To Nashville) with no brakes. I'm pretty sure in those 450 miles there was a place to get brakes fixed. Prolly passed by twenty or thirty of them. And I have had things happen on the road. Blew a tire running to Lake Charles, Stopped as soon as we got to a station. Still had 17, but that wasn't enough. Also blew a tire on the TT, changed it, and because the road we were on is pretty well deserted for miles , and miles. We drove to the nearest town, stayed overnight, and waited for a the tire store to open. You don't want to be walking thru a swamp in the middle of the night. But that's just me. I don't know what route you use from Bowling Green, KY to Nashville, TN that is 450 miles!? Bowling Green, KY straight down I-65 to Nashville, TN is 65-70 miles. Yes, I'm sure.....drove it every day for 5 years.

RE: Bathroom door blocks hallway no more...

my montana's door to bath opens all the way so it doesn't block the hall. Our Montana 3585SA with a standard swinging bathroom door also opens to the inside and doesn't block the hall or any bathroom floorspace. We also have a second (pocket) door that opens into the bedroom. I don't know why Montana changed the doors but we prefer ours the way it is.

RE: Cost of PacBrake install??

I installed mine myself on my 2007 Ram 2500 5.9 automatic. I had access to a lift and it took about 6 hours. I am not a mechanic but am somewhat handy with tools. I sure did enjoy the PacBrake and the bonus of on-board for my air bags!

RE: Stiff water hose

Flexible drinking water hose. Jim This hose is only 7/16" and the reviews I saw (didn't read all) were by little old ladies that used them to water their gardens/plants. This WOULD NOT be a good hose for your RV supply hose!

RE: The right fuels to use. Don't be foolish

I used to haul/deliver fuel 2007-2010 and at that time all drivers loading at a particular "tank farm" loaded products from the same storage tanks regardless where they were taking it. Walmart fuel burns just as good as anybody's in my truck.

RE: Toting RV power cord

I mounted a MorRyde cord reel to my ladder just above the plug-in of the fiver. Works great and don't have to lug the heavy/dirty 50 amp cord to the front of the rig for storage. I crank it in with 1 hand while using a rag to wipe it down with the other. MorRydes smallest/cheapest reel is large enough for my 30' 50 amp cord. Bought mine while touring their plant last Fall. $80 well spent!

RE: Another speed trap shut down

When I was still trucking before retirement I received a ticket from a small town city LEO. After handing me the ticket he said "If you will come in next week and pay this promptly I will see to it that this does not go on your driving record. We just want OUR money!" I paid it within 2-3 days and it never showed up.

RE: Satellite vs WiFi TV service

We’ve been retired 17 years and RVing all that time, the down side for us is Internet access. We use park Wi-Fi when available but it’s iffy. We have a Verizon JetPack and have it set at 12GB per month and try to come close each month without going over to meet our budget. Sure wish they would offer rollover for what we don’t use. We pay for it, they really should. We like Verizon for the coverage because we move around a lot, but it’s time to look for an alternative. To answer the OP question, as others have said it’s just too expensive for us to use Verizon to watch movies. It would help your bill a little (helped mine $20) if you would ditch the JetPack and use your smart phone hotspot. I did this using my Galaxy S5 and yes it works better than the JP and I CAN still send/receive phone calls and texts and use other apps while using the hot spot. I too wish Verizon offered rollover on the data.

RE: newby fiver wanabe, million mile + trucker, needs educated

Papa-Scooby, I will give you MHO, The very first thing to look for in any RV is the "FLOOR PLAN", I.e. Where is the kitchen located, bathroom, etc. if you have never been RVing, it might be difficult to do, and probably very few purchase an RV "long term"! Going from a stick house to an RV requires a great deal of downsizing, you are going to be in a smaller place. Where things are, cabinets, etc will become a very big deal after only a short time living in the RV. Something that is insignificant now will become a BIG pain later. When looking at the different RV's imagine actually living in there, go thru the motions, if nothing else in your mind, to see if that might be a problem, cooking and serving food, cleaning, or making up the bed, your daily activities, the more the better! Start looking at lots of different models, what do you like, what do you not like. In the end, you will have to compromise but hopefully you will not have to be surprised at your compromise! Enjoy your search, and Good Luck! Totally agree with this and will add to take your time and not rush into anything. Be sure all involved parties are in agreement also. I am also a multi-million mile retired trucker and agree with your truck plan. I would never recommend to an ex trucker to get a HDT because we have already been there and done that. Don't have anything to prove like some do and am bored with that. Will take my comfortable F350 any day over HDT.

RE: What Did You Do With Your Heirlooms And Jewellery?

The thieves who broke into our home 1 year before we went full time got ours.

RE: Single RVing Mother (parent)

Have you considered going back to school for an RN degree. I understand travel nursing pays well. My daughter did that for a while before getting married but did not do it the RVing way.

RE: Shipping Trailer

I would NEVER purchase any kind of RV without seeing it with my own eyes and I don't mean pictures!

RE: G2 Portable Satellite

You must have placed it right on top of a colony. Probably could have removed the top and blown it out with low pressure air yourself. That is likely what was done for the $200 you were charged (IF they did that much) !

RE: Air bags

I have had Firestones and AirLifts. In my opinion the AirLifts are superior in quality. Love mine!

RE: There IS hope for your non-functioning tank sensors!

Sounds like a lot of OCD and waste of water Toilet burps......dump Shower/sink start draining slower...dump Water pump goes 'burrrrrrrrrrup'..........tank empty add water Otherwise if you use your Rig then you know how long you can go and when it's time to dump. No need for chemicals, high water use, monitors etc. Waste holding tanks.......hold it/dump it repeat. Biscuit I'm with you. I never use my tank monitor. I don't know if my sensors work or not. Once I become familiar with my rig I find no use/need for the sensors. I see the tank monitor as a gimmick for newbies to give them peace of mind to know their rig will not blow from poo if they over fill there tanks. Initially the tank monitor maybe beneficial but in time you'll know when it's time to dump without checking the monitor panel. I try to avoid using chemicals unless absolutely necessary. I don't consider tank sensors necessary. I'm in total agreement with you both!

RE: Showering with 10 gallon water heater

Get a fiver with a 12 gallon water heater. That's what our Montana has and Suburban now offers a 16 gallon one too. We full time and simply stagger our shower times by just a few minutes and never come up short of hot water.

RE: Won't ever buy a Keystone RV

2008 Montana 3400RL and 2012 Montana 3585SA. Currently full timing (since 2010) and did so in both fivers. NO PROBLEMS! Happy Happy Happy!

RE: Toileting and the overnight stay

Keep a gallon of water in the bathroom and use it to flush. Don't need to turn on water pump and wake up your partner. Do you also put your foot into the toilet and pee down your leg so the "tinkle" sound won't wake your partner?
