RE: Best way to winterize yet still use unit in winter?

I thoroughly winterize my RV in the fall. I occasionally take a short trip during the off-season when there is good weather, usually for fishing. When I do I leave the water system winterized. I take along several square blue 5 gal jugs that have adjustable spigots that I put on the counter and run them into the sink for cooking and washing etc. I keep plenty of anti-freeze in the waste tanks. This avoids the winterize/de-winterize problem for me. Miles We do the very same thing. Inconvenient, but it works.

RE: Need help buying a new MH - PLEASE HELP!

Here is just what you need. An independent opinion about quality, carrying capacity, etc., of the different brands. This will help you separate the wheat from the chaff. Believe me when I say, there is a whole lot more junk in the RV world then quality. RV Consumer Group The three highest rated Class C's, the last time I looked, in alphabetical order, are Born Free Coach house Platinum Lazy Daze. Enjoy your travels

RE: anyone else not camping this weekend?

Now that we're retired, we leave the major holidays to the families. Much more to our liking camping in the "shoulder " seasons.

RE: Gotta Pay Before You Hike

Someone has to pay to clean up the trash, rescue the fools, etc. I've always been a fan of user fees for such things. Better, in my opinion, then using general tax dollars. If you want to play, you have to pay.

We stay at casinos often. Sometimes they have great buffets. Here is one reference. Casino info

RE: Is my generator big enough?

By "way low" he means 110volts or less. Voltage this low will cause long term damage to electric motors. Your a/c unit is a 13,500 btu unit. I do think your generator is adequate,just watch the voltage.

RE: Getting camper on lifted truck.

Talk about top heavy. A big unit on top of a lifted truck. Wow. Of course, once you have the guys money it's not your problem.

RE: Winter storage for truck

It's likely to get below zero. Perhaps down to -10 or so. When's the last time you flushed the radiator and added new coolent? Is the windshield washer fluid the type that can stand sub-zero temps? I add StaBil to the gas tank if I'm storing for 90 days or longer. Any way to hook a battery maintainer to the battery? If not, you might want to disconnect the battery. As long as it's fully charged, it's not likely to freeze. If it gets depleted, that might be an issue if it gets really cold.

RE: Winterizing tips for living in RV, in frigid climate?

Your built in furnace will burn through propane in no time. Here is a much better option. Wave heater

RE: Battery charge in storage?

We have used the battery maintainer for years. No issues to date. They are "smart" so they won't overcharge the battery. Less than $25 on Amazon. Enjoy your travels.

RE: LTV Free Spirit 2014 - electrical upgrades?

We looked long and hard at B vans recently with the same idea you have about solar and batteries. A local solar installation place said working on B vans after the fact is really tough. Running wires, finding roof space, etc. They suggested going with the factory installed systems rather than after market. It can be done of course. Contact AM Solar near Eugene, OR. They are as good as it gets in the solar field. Extra room for anything is tough in a B van. After you load up your "stuff", leveling blocks, lawn chairs, a bar-b-que grill, extra water hose, etc., there is simply no room left. Of course, going with AGM batteries helps because they can be inside as long as you can locate them near the existing batteries. The E-trek people are talking about, gets the extra battery storage space by eliminating the conventional generator. We finally decided on a 24' Class C. Lots of storage, lots of room for solar, batteries, etc. We both really liked the B van idea but for two boondockers, it just didn't seem to suit our needs. Others, of course, dearly love them. Either way, enjoy your travels.

RE: Black & Grey tank chemicals - What do you use ?

Use nothing. Not needed. Dump and flush . Simple.. If you are getting an odor problem vent tube may be compromised. We have never used anything. Same here. Been camping since 1976. Saved big bucks by doing it the same way.

Progressive. Excellent service on a recent claim.

RE: Winnebago / Mercedes Issues 2015 Navion 24G

I can't imagine that's not a MB issue. It's clearly part of the MB chassis. The mutual denial comes as no surprise. Nobody makes any money doing warranty repairs. I would press the issue with the owner/manager of the MB facility. Still no luck, go up the chain to the regional/ national MB people. http://mercedes-benz.custhelp.com/app/ask/session/L3RpbWUvMTQwODkwNjcyMi9zaWQvN0d6VlNGKmw%3D

RE: Windshield popping out

One I had years ago would flex enough under some leveling situations, to prevent the entry door from opening easily.

RE: Insurance on a new TT

I've used Progressive for a number of years. One claim and it was promptly and efficiently handled.

Pergo The Pergo type flooring is very commonly used and fairly easy to install.
