RE: Stupid mistake nearly cost me

Your chains are that tight? My safety chains are loose whether there is tension on the bars or not. I have never, ever seen my safety chains under any kind of tension. you called them safety chains but did you really mean the weight distribution bar chains?

RE: Had an oh **** moment!

I could never understand using roto chocks in place of regular tire chocks. I have 4 very heavy duty heavy rubber chocks that I use & the camper has never moved with them in place. I've had the yellow hard plastic ones but these heavy duty commercial chocks work much better & don't require retightening as do x-chocks or roto-chocks. I bought them from "Tractor Supply"

RE: Disintegrated vent, Warning about using vent cushion/inserts

These original vent lids just simply get brittle with age. Better quality lids are available as replacements.

RE: Propane sensor going off

I just replaced one that was going off sporadically. Found that the recommended replacement date was Oct 2014. Replaced it & all is good.

RE: Difference between Jayco and Keystone, Need some quick advice

I had a Jayco & can tell you that 2 yr warranty means squat. After 1 yr, I had water damage to the front 5 ft of floor. In building my TT, Jayco set the outer walls on top of the floor instead of covering the edge of the floors thereby allowing any water (rain) running down the outside walls to be soaked into the edge of the floor. I contacted the dealer & factory & was asked to provide photos of the damage. Repeated phone calls over several months got me nowhere, only "We're working on it & we'll get back to you on this". That was 8 yrs ago & I'm still waiting for a response, haha. Finally sold it "as is". Another issue I had with it was the black tank was directly under the shower so they figured it was simpler, easier & cheaper to let the tub drain straight down into the black tank. Imagine my surprise when taking my morning shower only to have the black tank back up into the tub with me standing in it. Jayco finally agreed to replumb it & add a second gray tank just for the tub. At this point there was no way of running a drain pipe from the tub to the existing gray tank. They added a second gray tank with a new vent pipe & and it's own dump valve. Moved on to a Dutchmen. It is lightyears better than the Jayco was. I would NEVER even consider another Jayco.

RE: Getting waste to flow up into a waste tote.

Get a suction hose, suck on the end of it to get it flowing, then put that end into the tote. JUST KIDDING!!!!!!

RE: Great.....my "new to me" 2011 TT has a rotted spot in floor!

I had a leak that kept soaking a front storage compartment. Ended up being the plastic clip that holds the storage compartment door open. Water was coming thru where the screws are. Pulled out the screws, caulked & reinserted the screws. Problem fixed. I caught my leak early before anything was damaged. Went around the camper & caulked every screw hole & replaced the screw. If you see the head of a screw with rust on it, water is getting inside.

RE: cancer is back

I also lost a kidney to cancer, but I was back to doing my normal routine in less than a month. That was 3 yrs ago.

RE: Leaving outside camper lights on?

No. It is extremely rude to those who have popups, tents & hybrids. I'm guessing they would like it dark for sleeping just as you do, with your blinds closed.

RE: Towing with RAM 1500

That 3:21 rear gear is the real enemy here. Just take your time & don't try to win any races & you'll be just fine. I had the same basic setup as you only I had the 3:92 rear gear & it did great. Make sure you are always using TOW/HAUL mode when towing, even at highway speeds to minimize transmission shifting up & down which causes heat buildup in it.

RE: New Tire...<200 miles...FLAT!!!! UGH!

Strange, but I've had 2 different tires, at 2 different times, pick up razor blades in the sidewall. Happened while driving & not parked both times. Now I always opt for the road hazard warranty. They were both on the wife's car.

RE: What do you use for a BBQ?

I usually use an 18" weber charcoal grill but I also have a Weber "go anywhere " gas grill that I sometimes use.

RE: Black tank chemical

S&B's toilets have a trap to them. The toilet in my camper does not. When flushing, you can see directly into the black tank. The only vapor barrier is that thin layer of water left in the toilet after the trap door closes. Thats why I use chemical. Repeated hot summer days with the camper closed up & in the sun, is when the smell gets worst. This is with the black tank already dumped. After it's dumped it's not like you got in there & scrubbed it out. It does get to smelling bad but not of I add chemical & fresh water making it ready for the next outing, which, by the way, may be 3 or 4 weeks away.

RE: Do I have enough truck for trip?

Upgrade your trans cooler & you will be just fine. Just don't push it too hard.

RE: Living fulltime in your RV could become illegal

I'm thinking one of the reasons for this is that no property tax is collected from those full timers. Remember, the gov't is all about "taxes" & full timers pay no property tax, sewer tax, school tax, tax on water bills, tax on garbage pick up, replacing windows on your sticks & bricks requires a permit (a tax), rebuilding your porch, get a permit first (a tax) adding a garage for the RV, get a permit first (a tax) & the list goes on & on....... I think I DO pay all those taxes. Whenever I pay for a nightly, weekly, or monthly space at an RV resort/CG, I know that some of that payment goes towards paying the taxes that are assessed against that property. You are paying HIS taxes for him but NOT your own taxes.

RE: Look at my hitch set up please....

The hitch you bought is just fine for your trailer/truck combo. It just needs to be properly set up. There are enough others on here telling you how to do it without me adding my own $.02

RE: I need a good disposable glove solution for dumping

Go to Home Depot & get a box of latex gloves. Just remember to put that sandwich down when pulling the handles on the dump valves. Sometimes it takes 2 hands, lol....
