RE: Realilistic mileage with a fifthwheel.

Yep. 8-10 no matter what you are towing. yeap! I average 9.5mpg towing flat or mountains. it doesn't matter its always right around 9.5. the sweet spot on tachometer is 2000 rpm this seems to get me the best mileage. but the 5er gets better than the TT did. randy

RE: In RVing there is a issue or break down, ever happen to u

Rear end went out on my 2003 F450, 5 miles from Quartzsite. Limped to town. Perhaps your 12yo truck isn't up to handling the load. getting my f350 rear end re built now. 270K miles. camper is down due to a wheel coming off at 65mph. 4 new tires and 2 axles. one axle destroyed. 2 tires destroyed. so it's expensive. trucks paid for, but it keeps costing me a $1000plus every few months. time to make a decision...on it. camper is close to being paid for..so we'll suck it up for now. randy

RE: Hurricane Prep

Make reservations now in the mountains for next weekend as the next one is headed for NC. You have wheels under it for a reason. NOw, this is good advice. but one year we were heading to myrtle beach. a hurricane was too. we went to Gatlinburg TN. SO did Hurricane HUGO.. so much for that plan. 3boys head for central NC. Raleigh state fair grounds has full hook ups as long as the state fair is not in town. Jordan lake water and power, Falls lake same. some one already said Kerr lake. IF need be Guilford county has a nice full hook up park(name slips my mind) as does high-point Lake Hollow. and Tanglewood has just remodeled their campground. new Yogi bear in Asheboro. options galore. randy

What are you seeing Propane cost?

I just had to get some propane tanks filled. 20lb was $10.00 straight up. 30lb was $17.00 straight up. this seemed like a good price. The sign was metal with painted cost on it so I know they don't change the price that often. This was local mom&pops owned propane refueling business and fireplace/grill store. Just curious? randy

RE: Savannah GA and Charleston SC campground and turs

James Island Co Park, outside of Charleston offers a trolley to the historic downtown district. I think it's seasonal, so you would have to call and see when it begins. It's a great park and only 10 minutes from downtown. great place to spend a few days and downtown Charleston is great. I have not been to Savannah but want too. have fun randy

RE: Needing a spare tailgate

Tailgate cargo net. Available at most auto part warehouses...I think even WALMART sells them. Roughly $50.00 for a stronger one (cheap $20.00 ones are available), can be folded and stored easily for future use. More than strong enough to rest a piece of plywood against to hold in sand/dirt, etc... I like this idea. randy

RE: 2nd a/c

I live in central NC. vacation at the beach, the mountains and in VA, SC and TN. and took the camper to Oklahoma this past summer and both AC's were needed some days. I added the penguin 13.5BTU unit to my bedroom. IT has helped in the summer heat and humidity. I don't think I would go smaller. hope this helps, randy

RE: camping at Bristol Motor Speedway in April.

Avoca Christian Church. just down the road from the track. they will shuttle you to the track. some sites have a power hookups. youth group fundraiser, no charge just donation. fix breakfast all mornings and lunch or supper too. easy walk from the track if you are in shape. did it three times rode once. next door to Greek restaurant and near walmart and fuel and anything else you need. you have to call the church and reserve a spot. randy

opportunity to purchase

I have the opportunity to purchase a wrecked and totaled popup real cheap. the wreck bent the frame at the tongue and the whole back side of the Coleman popup has been destroyed. you can see into the PU. it would need the "A" frame rebuilt at the hitch. the whole back side would have to be rebuilt some way. the guts are good shape. Just wondering if anyone has done this type of thing before and is it worth my time to try and rebuild it. if this is just labor no big deal but done want to have to spend over 500 or so to do it all. I can weld and have all the major tools to do woodworking. can do electric work too. Just checking it out and see if this might be a doable project. thanks randy

RE: GOT the odor of gas smell.

Question, would or does it matter which way the regulator is. Like does it need to be flat top up or doesnt matter as long as in/out is right. I feel I can tighten it up some more but kept itvflat side up
