RE: Flat towing a 2016 GMC Canyon, 6 speed standard

Probably don't make this truck with a manual transmission.

RE: Tow Bar

I had a Blue Ox,tow bar and used if for about 10 years. It was torn down reassembled by them several times. About the 3rd or 4th time they took it apart there was enough wear inside an was loose enough that it was obvious it needed to ho. Was at a rally and got a new one for fraction of the regular cost. They recommend look at replacing the tow bar at about 75,000 miles of use.

RE: How Often Do You Trade?

I like our class A. One of the reasons; A few years ago we pulled into an rv space and a 5th wheel pulled in next to us at about the same time. It was raining hard. We pulled in, hit the self leveling, put the slides out and started the generator and sat back. Watched our neighbor sit in the truck for a little, then get out and start to level and hook up etc all the time in the pouring rain. I thought that might just be the best reason for having a powered rv.

RE: How do I replace a rocker arm switch?

I changed mine to a switch with a light that is on when the switch is one. The switch is called a furnace switch and available at home Depot or lowes. I installed a mobile home electrical box that clamps to the wall material(same box used in rvs). Sure do like the little red light on when the block heater is on.

RE: Military MWR Campgrounds

I have not run across a military park that had any unusual rules for dogs. Basically the same as all the civilian parks. Well one exception, I did run into a civilian park that did allow any dogs of any kind. Never found that or any other unnecessary rule in a military park.

RE: Military MWR Campgrounds

If you could average out all military families camps and compare to average of all civilian rv parks (lots more civilian) I think the military parks would win hands down. Like others have said some a better than others. To name a few DM AFB, Nellis AFB, Fort Sam Houston army, Vandenburg AFB, Buckley AFB, New Orleans Navel air reservation base are excellent and better than most facilities in the area. Civilian friends we travel extensively with love it when we stay at military facilities.

RE: extended warranty

I have a 2012 1500 silverado 4x4 that has only needed and had oil changes, tire rotation, and a new set of wipers. I still get offers in mail and on telephone for extended warranty.I keep saying "no" and saving money. Had an extended warranty on a jeep some years ago. Never had, needed anything, or used a penny of the money the warranty cost. I would never have another extended warranty unless I was willing to donate the money.

RE: Where to stay in the Las Vegas area?

We like Airizona Charlies. Probably cannot get a pull through long enough though.

RE: Short 50 to 30 amp cord

My sticks and bricks has a 30 amp outlet that I plug our 50 amp coach into. I just use a 30 amp extension cord and just pull the 50 amp plug out to the ground, use the adapter for 50 to 30 and plug in the 30 to connect to the outlet. You could probably build one but the time you bought all the pieces and made it up it might be cheaper to buy the 30 extension. A friend bought a 10 foot 50 amp extension at an RV park. Didn't know anyone made a 10 cord so maybe there us a 10 foot 30 out there.

RE: Brain Teaser

Most people do not count the "f's" in the word "of". Don't know why, but I recently read that so I made sure I counted them and got it correct.

RE: CG near El Paso ?

I live here and would only stay in las Cruces. The Hacienda is a very nice rv park but coming from El Paso the left turn right off of and after the exit can be hell to make. Sunny Acres RV park a few blocks down valley drive from that same exit is also a very nice park and a little easier to get to. It is owned and operated by 2 very nice couples.

RE: Premature Failure of Fabric: Anyone Else Have This Problem?

I've read and heard of other rv's with the same problem.In one case the rv owners were upset with the furniture manufacturer only to learn that the RV manufacturer specified the materials and the furniture guy just did what they were contracted to do. Moral of the story; check on who specified the cheap stuff.

RE: Entegra or newmar

I understand that most if not all the new 40 foot motor homes have a tag axel due to weight. 40 foot motor home a few years ago were not as heavy as they are now.

RE: "Moving Up" to a 5th wheel

I moved up. When I was younger I camped in a pick up with a canvas thrown over the stock rack. Of course I hosed out the truck bed before I went to bed. That's moving up.

RE: Entegra or newmar

I think Newmar is exactly right that every 40 foot motor home has to have a tag. The reason is because without the tag it would be overloaded. Every one.

RE: How expensive to replace the slide out awning fabric?

A friend removed the fabric from his toppers, took them to a shop that had sunbrella fabric and had them duplicated. He then installed the new ones. Said he saved a lot of money over typical toppers

RE: LED TV, Safe Going Down Road?

I would try to secure it as I just hate to have any movement of anything that is not supposed to move as one is bouncing down our roads.

RE: Satellite TV questions

Not sure why so many people indicate problems with directv. Direct established a seperate function for RV customers. Seems like people are not aware. You can call Directv and ask for the RV office and get a knowledgeable person on the line. Unless something has changed recently I have found them very accomodating.
