RE: 500 miles under 50 mph

I hereby offer my services... leave it with me and I would be delighted to break it in for you! And I promise I won't exceed 50 mph! :)

RE: How common is common.

When we first bought our camper, I found that I lost fresh water suction way before I ran out of water. When I checked under the camper, I found that the tank bottom sagged enough to allow much of the water to be below the suction line. I also found that the tank was only held up by resting on an angle iron on the front and back of the tank. As the tank sagged, the edges moved inward, effectively pulling it off it's supports! It only had about 1/2" of tank sitting on the support on each side. I now understand why the dealer told me not to travel with a tank of water. That's their solution to poor construction I guess. Anyway, I added several steel support straps so I COULD carry a full tank of water safely.

RE: Memory Card Recovery??

I am retired IT (system design and implementation) and my "go to" bag of tricks for virtually everything starts with Piriform products. They have free versions of most of their software, but, after using them I've since gone to their paid versions. You do get what you pay for, however, I'd give their free version a shot: Recuva Software The free version download link is at the bottom of the page. Recuva will work with virtually any file type on any memory device. x2...I've had great luck with Recuva.

RE: Tow your Travel Trailer and take your boat

Well done. I love seeing people come up with solutions that don't break the bank. Good job! :C

RE: Dove springs memorial trip.

I would LOVE to camp someplace like this just once! But alas, there is nothing like this within my range of travel these days. Great pictures and looked like an amazing time!

RE: Added some DIY drawers for improved organization

Excellent work! I've added a few shelves but see all kinds of places where drawers would be nice...and I got a pocket hole jig for Christmas a couple years ago! :)

RE: Why buy built in America?

I am a firm believer in BUYING AMERICAN whenever I have a choice. I'm not stupid enough to think I'm going to get it right every time, but I understand enough about economics to know I need to make an effort to support American industry...especially through mom and pop type businesses. I will admit to paying a little extra at times in my attempt to do what I think is right.

RE: Help! No hot water!

Have your water heater bypass valves been opened (de-winterized)? I wasn't sure if the 'pressure thingy' you are talking about is the relief valve on the water heater?

RE: Who has been refilling 1 lb propane tanks?

I refilled for about a summer without a problem. It just got to where it didn't seem worth it to me. But then we never cooked enough with our table top propane to make it worthwhile. You may have an entirely different situation. The majority of replies you are likely to get here will be very negative with little to back those opinions. Give it try, but research and read as much as you can about propane gas properties and fill techniques. You CAN do it safely.
