RE: Rear Camera??

Check E-Bay. It might be better to get a 3 camera system and cover some of the blind spots.

RE: Another fence post hose mod

Lowes quit carrying the brand. You can order online, but then you have shipping. I'm looking for 2 5x5 end caps locally, yea they're online but $7 shipping for a $1 cap

RE: Running coax for DishTailgater ladder mount Class C

We have a Tailgator as well. For awhile we kept it on the roof for a better view of the southern sky, but any wiggle of the 5'er would cause it to go out. The dish is so small in them that they lose the signal really esy.

RE: NASCAR 'Glory Days' in the Rearview Mirror

What they don't mention is the fact that all the cars are the same, most of the drivers are prima donna's, and it all but appears to be a set cast of winners and losers.

RE: Which brand & model of walkie talkies for my "spotter?"

We use our cell phones. i put mine on speaker and put it on the console where I can hear, but leaves my hands and head available to turn and look at the mirrors etc. And it keeps the neighbors from hearing both ends of the conversation.

RE: Rear kitchens

We had a 1996 32RKS Carrilite and never had any issue with the items in the rear cabinets or the fridge.

RE: hitch weight

15-20% of the total weight on the pin is all that matters. And towing as close to level as you can.

RE: Carriage-Cameo by Crossroads?

The Cameo doesn't have a molded back cap, all the front caps are off of toyhaulers, I-beam frame, need I say more... If you want a Carriage quality RV, look at Lifestyle RV's, that's where all the engineers went. Thor just bought the name trademark nothing else.

RE: Using propane heater exhaust as a outside heat source?

You could "Rube Goldberg" a design using 2 heat exchangers, small pump, and antifreeze. You could hang a transmission size cooling radiator in front of the exhaust on the outside, have 2 flexible insulated lines running to the inside, to another radiator/heat exchanger with a small fan moving air over it. A small pump to circulate a non-toxic coolant and you would have a heat source in the basement. Wire the pump and fan to come on with the furnace relay. As others have mentioned you cannot restrict the exhaust heat, so I wouldn't cover it or box it in. My opinion only

RE: Are there any RV toilets with a P trap?

A Tecma Easy Fit has a similar bowl and exit system as a house style commode, but it's hooked to a macerator pump. I've installed or had installed a hundred or so when I was in the custom boat business

RE: M-Tec Frame

If you want to make a million, start a frame shop in the Elkhart area. Make a fantastic product with more strength than necessary, build for a year or two and Lippert will buy you out. Move down the road and do again! Lippert buys alot of small operations that build good products to begin with. After the integration in the Lippert family, the original owners go away, and the product is then manufactured to lessening degree's of quality until you have nothing but junk.

RE: Going from a 33' to a 40'

RE: For those of you that camp frequently

Just wait till you tell all the family and friends that your going FullTime! Most people live within a 100 mile area or so. Traveling for vacations is going to theme parks or such but only every 5 years, 10 years. Many dream of the ability t go away for the week, and bring back the pics to show everybody but few actual will when given the choice. Don't worry about the "others"! See ya down the road

RE: 2014 Big Horn Silverado still in shop

Ok, let me rephrase my answer. It would be easy to find the short, string and splice some new wire into the underbelly and call it fixed. But on a new from the factory RV, who wants that? Having been in the marine repair industry, its a pain to go behind others trying to figure out what they did so you can repair the latest issue.

RE: Affordable insurance for full timer in S.D.

I'm in the same boat, with the ACA and all the other issues I no longer have ins. SD INS companies don't insure unless you reside, actually live in the state, for at least 6 months. Then the problem becomes that the ins companies only have in state doctors.

RE: 2014 Big Horn Silverado still in shop

Time for it to go back to the factory. The dealers workers will do more damage removing trim and parts than anything. if its supposed to be a new unit, insist on a NEW unit, not one that has been torn apart and reassembled.
