You can overnight in all of them. I've never known any to be better or worse then the others. Common sense is all you need. Stay inside. Keep the doors and windows locked. Don't open the door.

RE: Roof Question-What is "normal"

I've owned five RV's over the years and could walk all over the roof with no noticible flexing.

RE: Millenicom Customer Accounts Acquired by Verizon

It was just a matter of time. Never did make sense that a company A would allow company B to sell A's product for less than they would sell if for. Agreed. Here is my guess. Years ago VZ had excess network capacity. Rather then doing nothing with it, they sold it wholesale to Millenicom. Recently retail users are consuming more and more data. Video streaming, music, sending pictures, etcetera. The former excess capacity is gone. VZ made a good business decision to sell data at retail and not wholesale. I'm guessing they simply told Millenicom that they would no longer wholesale data to them. End of Millenicom.

RE: is it water damage?

Google Fix Rotted Wood and you will get lots of info. As just said, there are epoxy kits designed to fix the rot.

RE: Rubber Roof Bubbles

From the Dicor site. My roof has air bubbles. Is this normal? Typically, if air bubbles occur they occur during or very soon after the roof has been applied. A couple of reasons for the air bubbles would be that they were not broomed out during application, and we ask the installer not to stretch the material during installation to allow for expansion and contraction of the membrane. Air bubbles will occur with weather conditions and humidity. Air bubbles can also occur at the seams of the roof decking due to flexing and twisting that occurs during transit. Sometimes they occur if there is a significant difference in the temperature between the inside and outside of the unit. Back to top Will the air bubble effect the performance of my roof? No. The air bubbles will not blow up and pop. They will come and go with the weather conditions, humidity, etc. Please do not puncture the air bubbles. Air bubbles mean there is room for expansion and contraction, lessening the chance of stress cracks later. Back to top

RE: First-time solar panel user

It will open up a whole new world of boondocking. AZ is loaded with wonderful places you can camp for free. Nice NF campgrounds that typically have no utilities of any type. Thousands of square miles of desert areas just waiting for you. Solar is the best improvement we've ever made to our Class C. In 2013, we spent a grand total of three nights in a commercial campground. If you're ready to get away from the KOA routine, you'll love your solar. On the other hand, if you are really attached to your campground pedestal, you've just wasted a few grand. Enjoy

RE: Weird Wired Power Pedestal

For a few bucks you can get a device that tests the circuit before you plug your cord in. It tests for a proper ground, correct wiring, etc. Never Plug your RV in without testing the power first. Tester To use this to test the 30 amp plug, just plug this tester into a 20 amp to 30 amp connection.

RE: Winterizing...did I miss anything?

I cover the tires with either the store bought type or homemade from plywood scraps. Helps keep the sun from beating down on them all winter. I also it cut pieces of reflextix in the windows to keep the sun from fading the fabric.

RE: water heater winterizing question

As suggested,the quick and easy solution is to turn on the HWH at night. Then turn it off in the morning.

RE: Tires in dirt all summer. what do i look at before I tow?

I would check the air pressure. Top off off with my portable compressor then head home. Your tires are not going to rot away sitting on grass for a year. You may feel a bump, bump, bump for a little while from a flat spot on the tire, but after they warm up, you'll be just fine. Have a nice trip.

RE: Getting ready to pull the trigger. What do you guys think?

Dynamax builds a quality product. Once you go over it carefully, if it looks good, I'd go for it. The mileage on the rig is good for the age. Those Ford V-10s tend to be solid engines. Enjoy

RE: Starcraft, less than 12hrs old and already issues

The sad state of American quality. Just look at all the automobile recalls lately. Why are posters saying this is OK. It's not. As long as we have low expectations about quality and value, manufactures will continue to deliver******and we'll happily accept it. Why. :h Was the money you gave the dealer as defective as the rig they gave you???

RE: Connecting the iPad?

We do this all the time with the Hot Spot feature on the iPhone. An optional feature that will cost you a monthly fee. As I recall, you can turn the Hot Spot feature on and off so if you only need this feature during your travel months, that's all you pay for.

RE: Need FAST Reliable cheap ball-joint mech Mesa AZ

The typical ERS will tow you to a shop capable of fixing the problem. Every tow after that is on your nickel. Old saying. Quality is remembered long after the price has been forgotten. Will the other guy stand behind his work? How long of a warranty does he offer? Is he licensed and insured? Is he using new parts? Some stuff I would ask about.

RE: Bought RV in KY, Keeping it in AL, Live in OH...??

Are you a legal resident of OH, KY, or AL? That's the state law you need to comply with. If you're a resident of OH, I suspect you need to pay OH sales tax, and register your TT in Ohio. It would surprise me if AL allowed a non-resident to register their vehicles there. If so, AL might require you to pay their sales tax. Best check with the AL and OH DMV office. Either way, enjoy your new TT.

RE: 2014-15 winter's forecast

What does The Old Farmers Almanac say? They have been remarkably accurate over the years. I rely heavily on my Ouija board. Much better then the tea leaves or the nightly weather guesser. ;)
