RE: Voltage at the pedestal

120 volts +- 10% is acceptable. Outside that range you're likely to damage motors and other electronics.

RE: Gas class A advice

Personally, I would still avoid Fleetwood products. Ditto Georgie Boy. Decent mid-range Winnebago . Tiffin a notch up.

RE: de winterize

There is a check valve in that fitting to prevent that from happening. Turn off the pump. Open a faucet to relieve any pressure in the system. Take the eraser end of a pencil. In water fill connection you will see a plunger looking piece. Press it in and out a few times. Turn on the pump If you're lucky, the leak might stop.

RE: town ordinace against travel trailers on city streets

complaints I have heard is we already pay taxes, looks just as bad or worse parked in yard, I just don't get it I guess Locally, if you park a boat, RV, etc., in your yard it must be in the back yard and screened from view. I.E. Behind a 6' fence. Helps keep the neighborhood looking nice rather then like a junk yard. If a town does nothing, pretty soon it's the cars on blocks with the wheels removed, the living room couch in the front yard, the chained pit bull, ec.

RE: town ordinace against travel trailers on city streets

Some do, some don't. Around here there is a 72 hour limit but it's usually only enforced if someone complains. I've parked mine for a week or more before and after trips. No problems so far.

RE: Extended Warrantee... Worth it????

There isn't much expensive stuff on a TT that is likely to have a major, expensive failure. Plus. Three things you need to do if you really want insurance, Read the fine print. Read it again. Now once more. There are dozens of ifs's, ands and buts. Would pass.

RE: Extended Warrantee... Worth it????

Extended warranties are only worth it to the companies that sell them. They will find any excuse not to pay. You will be money ahead to put the $1900 in an emergency only savings account and be self insured. Or you can send it to me and I'll just tell you "Not covered due to improper maintenance" LOL X2

RE: Alarm System

. In short, an effective system, not one that just makes a lot of noise. Anyone have any suggestions on suppliers and systems? Thanks! I have a 70# dog with really big teeth. Has provided security for us for the last 11 years. Zero up front cost. Reasonable monthly expense. :) Enjoy your beautiful new rig.

RE: Dually or Single?

I would go with the one that could drag the most weight. You have a very serious load to haul around. I suspect you will be real close to the limits of your truck when your all packed for a trip. Enjoy your travels.

RE: Back from the dealership, Ford/Chevy vs Sprinter

Gas is cheap. At least for now making a pricey diesel not so much of a good choice. You can get a Ford or Chevy repaired almost anywhere in the country. Not so with a MB. Also. As soon as you walk into a MB dealership, the $$$$ appear. Some previous discussions about the MB RV's indicate tha not all MB dealers will work on them. You might check locally and see what your local MB dealers say. Enjoy your travels.

RE: Kanab, Utah

Lots of BLM land all around there. Here are two. Look at Google Earth 37.154736 -112.573671 37.207169 -112.675418 Both are free disbursed camping areas used for riding.

RE: Long Key SP

It's tight. Depends on your driving skills. Last time we were there, a semi pulling a 40' or so, Fiver pulled in. A few of us walked down just to watch. First try it was in. We all gave HER a big smile and salute.

RE: Dealer wants to buy out my lease?

He's not sending you the letter out of the goodness of his heart in order to do you a favor. The dealer is doing his own wallet a favor, and not yours. Used cars/trucks are often more of a profit margin for the dealer than new ones. He would gain a newer used truck to put on his lot and sell at a profit. You would have the same payment, but for a longer time, thus guaranteeing the dealer a revenue stream for a longer period of time. Dealer wallet wins = 2 Your wallet wins = 0 Pretty straightforward.

RE: how to decide on buying a trailer - the dream vs reality

Either way, buy used. Let someone else take tha big first year hit instead of you.

RE: Florida beaches

Wow, the beaches of Oregon and Washington don't seem to have any aversion to our 4-legged friends. Surprised to learn this. Learn something new every day. Thanks, People just get tired of getting dog s*£# between their toes. Most beach communities have at least one dog beach. Inquire when you get there.

RE: Beware of older motorhomes with low mileage!

Is there an auto salvage place around? They can be a good source for discontinued or hard to find parts. Call them and give them the year/model of the vehicle you need. They can probably tell you if the have one on the lot. Bring your own tools becaus you will probably have to remove the part yourself. Good luck

RE: Need help finding place in Florida for the winter

In the Keys the state parks are, by far, the most economical. If they are filled, as they often are, here is where we go. It's in Marathon which is a very convenient location. Knights Key. http://knightskeyrvresortandmarina.com/ Enjoy your trip. I went to high school in Key West many, many years ago.
