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

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

RE: GOT the odor of gas smell.

Do you have a high pressure propane regulator valve, often referred to as the little red regulator valve, near one of your tanks? (Not the two stage change over regulator valve) Those little high pressure regulator valves are notorious for leaking. Inexpensive and easy to replace. I could smell propane in my driver's side propane tank compartment a number of years ago. Using soapy water and then leak detector fluid, I could not find any bubbles any where. After much searching and reading RV forums, I replaced the high pressure regulator valve and no more odor. When I removed the old one, I could see an oily like substance around the vent hole on the bottom of the regulator. Apparently it was leaking, but the soapy water was not getting to that hole on the bottom and therefore no bubbles. I do and that's the side it seems to smell the most from. I will start here. As long as the tanks are turned off nothing smells. BUT I do have the main switch regulator and the smaller red one on the opposite side. Never had that in the TT's or PU. Might be able to check that today once I get off. Thank's all. randy

GOT the odor of gas smell.

I was messing with my camper this week before it turned cold again. I opened one propane tank and I can smell the odor of it. You know the smells like rotten eggs smell. I turned everything off right away. BUT do you or have you, know of a good starting spot to see what might be leaking or where. We had this our last trip out but I had also run over my black tank rinse( another whole story) so I thought it was that until this week. I now know it was the propane smell. Any thoughts on a direction or just start at the tanks and work every joint or fitting location of propane. Got to find this ASAP. 1st trip in 6 weeks. thanks randy

RE: Tankless water heater upgrade

try an oxygenator shower head too. read the reviews for these. We have one ad I can take a nice long 6 gallon shower. NOT like my S&B but very good for a camper. randy

RE: Camping World "Store Brand"

I believe it is the Mallard line. They used to be available from regular dealers, but I think CW has bought the name, and Forest River is making them as an exclusive for CW. Our first TT was a mallard with a couch slideout and it was perfect for our first TT. Learned a lot using it after having a PUP for 6 years. Traded it for a new bunkhouse TT back in the day. randy

RE: Cold and windy!

if you do use bales of hay, wrap as much as you can in the cheap blue tarps. this will cut down on exposure to elements and maybe slow down the critter affect. I have seen that done on a picture on one of these here forums. randy

We ripped out the carpet in our old 2003 Cougar and installed Traffic Master Allure self-floating snap together flooring. It is water resistant. We loved it as it gave a warm interior and also a LOT easier to keep clean. Just a warning, if you pull out the old carpet, wear a gas mask and don't let you stomach get to upside down. Pulling the carpet out has to rank up there with one of the nastiest jobs I have undertaken. The carpet looked great on top but underneath, OMG, I thought my DW was going to gag herself to death. My wife is a stickler for "Clean" and when she witnessed this, the next thing I know, all the carpet was gone in our "brick and mortar"! Nasty! TRY that in a house where you are replacing it with hardwoods. MY wife and I tore it out and it had been down for over 15 years. MY Goodness!!!! I hope if we ever take it of the 5er it won't be that bad.. thanks randy

RE: Question about 50amp inlet plug

You're not holding your mouth right, try a smirk. As in "gotcha you turkey". I use a right angle adapter to take the load off the receptacle, never take it off the 50a cord.. Same here, it makes that angle just better. I got one when they were cheaper than they are now. ITS a Marinco 1RPC50RV Right Angle Locking Adapter. $87.00 at Amazon.com now. randy

RE: Installing Dryer Vent '16 Keystone Cougar 333MKS ???

not to be a pain but this would almost be a stealer-ship deal that way they screw it up they can fix. You screw it up you are on the lamb. I can access my campers under storage cabinet panel (I was just in there on this last trip. almost half the screws had fallen out) so I pulled this panel and straightened some wiring out behind it and wire tied some more then put some new screws in and vacuumed the carpert. but there is nothing to access in the front storage box. You would be straight down from the front closet I think on my 327RES anyway. randy
