RE: OVEN VALVE -no parts available

Take the obsolete valve with you and go to a Johnstone supply store and see if they can match it for you.

RE: Replacing Refrigerator Cooling unit

Most people prefer the Amish cooling units. Will cost more, but better built. Have you considered a residental refer replacement?

RE: Trying to see if FT RV'n is for us

Park models are basically tiny homes. Watch an episode of tiny homes on HGTV some time. Generally there around 350 Sq ft. Have residential appliances and decent bed rooms. Because they have no holding tanks, and are designed to be moved often cost is usually much less.

RE: PU Truck - which model?

Get a one ton. 2500 series trucks run out of capacity real quick. 34 foot with 1600 pounds pin weight sounds fishy to me. I suspect your looking at the mystical dry weight. Remember, no matter what a fifth wheel will load approx 20% of its true loaded weight directly over the rear axle of the tow vehicle. That is in addition to what else you might load on, including the hitch, people, tools and supplies.

RE: Fifth wheel tire replacement

Go for 17.5 inch tires and wheels. You wont regret it.

RE: Portland to Burns

Portland over Mount Hood to Madras, Madras to Redmond, Redmond east to just before the Les Scwab warehouse about 5 miles west of Prineville, south on the road to the Bend-Burns highway (west of Millican), then east to Burns. The highway from 126 to 20 was constructed so the Les Schwab trucks did not have to go through Bend. Fastest and easiest road in my opinion. So 97 from South from Madras is a better road than 26 South of Madras? Huh? 26 and 97 merge on the north end of Madras and split again on the south end of Madras. 26 does not go to Burns unless you turn south on the road mentioned above or drive east to John Day and take 395 south.

RE: US 20 in Oregon

Take 22 from nesr the summit toward Salem and enjoy 101 from Lincoln City south. Better drive IMHO.

RE: Portland to Burns

If your in east Portland, 26/97/20 is your best option. If your on the west side of town, then I5 to Salem, 22/97/20 would be better.

RE: Okay, Oregonians, help me out here...

Take 20 west. Get a reservation at Tumalo ou LaPine state park for the first night. Second night Collier state park. From Collier its a fairly easy drive up to the lake. Leave your RV at Collier and explore.

RE: Mayfield, Ky to Portland Oregon

Get as far north as possible. Your choices then are MtRushmore and the black hills area. Glacier, Custer Battlefield, and or Yellowstone before heading to PDX.

RE: Oregon hwys

Us 26 from Gresham has always been my favorite. The climb is shorter. Other wise Weed straight up 97

RE: Chevy/GMC 2500 diesel owners

1, trim 2, there are better choices, but there OK. 3, 4, expect 10-11 towing no matter what 5, drive them all and pick what you like the best

RE: suburban as a tv for first tme

The problem with the 1500 Suburban is lack of payload. Once you have bodies in the seats and some travel stuff they generally are right at max payload with little to no room for hitch weight. Now, if you could find a low mileage 2500 Suburban it could make a great tow vehicle.

RE: using coach a/c while driving?

Way back when.... we ordered our first and only MH sans dash air. Used the generator and roof air exclusively. Worked just fine and kept the whole coach cool

RE: Finding weird rain Water leak on Travel Trailer

Your best choice is to have a seal test performed. Water tends to migrate a long ways some times. A seal test will show you all failed seals.

RE: Basic electrical question

Actually if it is newer the lights are 12VDC only. The converter/charger and/or battery power everything except the microwave, and AC. The refer can cool via gas or 120VAC, but needs 12VDC for control power

RE: Dometic "ice chest" refrigerators

Have had a larger sized one for about three years now we use as a freezer. Works great. It always rides in my fivers basement connected to a 12VDC plug and also plugged into a 120VAC outlet. Never had a worry about it. The downside, the small area on one end is NOT capable of storing frozen foods.
