RE: What to purchase....TT, 5er, MH, ???

With all info you provided, I too would go with a TT. 30' or less would allow you to go to almost any campground in the Sierra's where you can do your fishing, boating, exploring. Either side of the Sierra's would be great for you and your sons.....lots of bears tho, so DW might have a concern or two. When you go camping, tell older son to leave his electronic gadgets at home and involve him 100% in the fishing, camping, boating experiences. I guarantee you he will enjoy them and forget all about his smart phone. Ron

RE: Top of the Grapevine, lost all air pressure!

I believe that the air dryer's connection have a male on one side and a female on the other....so no additional connectors are require to by-pass the filter. Just disconnect the two lines from the dryer and reconnect together. At least that's the way my previous coach was and I assume they are all made that way. Good job getting the fix done on basically your own. Ron

RE: In Motion Satillite System for Motor Home

I donno, in motion tv for grandkids? Why not just put in a dvd for them...why do they need live tv? We have a collection of dvd's for adults and kids and whenever our grandkids go along with us, we strap them down on the couch and turn on a dvd of their choice. As mentioned, dome in-motion is SD only...for me, HD is the only way to go and I therefore will have nothing but a DISH Trav'ler....if you have DirectTV, then there is a Trav'ler for that too, albeit a little more $$.

RE: CB Radio - needed?

When we had our truck and TT back at the turn of the century, I bought a real nice Cobra unit and made a special mount for it to rest on the console. Had it all the years we had the TT and I really can't remember one time that it came in handy. When we sold the trailer and got the first motor home, I decided it just wasn't worth the effort to install it. It's now setting on a shelf in my garage....anybody need one cheap? Ron

RE: M@G Break System

Dick, M&G is an excellent braking system with many people here having very favorable service from it. I seriously doubt if you can go wrong with it. Ron

RE: RV GPS and TPMS...yes or no

No burrito, thank you very much..... You're missing out. And burritos are WAY safer than tacos when you're behind the wheel. Safer? I donno know... burritos have a tendency to do strange, smelly things to my digestive system, which I might add, is NOT conductive to a pleasant trip.:E Thanks anyway... Ron

RE: DEF addative

You DO know that DEF is NOT a fuel additive.....right? In fact, it's not even an additive as you don't add it to anything. It is used just as it comes out of the jug. I get mine at Walmart for a little less than $12 for 2 1/2 gallons. My DEF tank holds 13 gallons and I'll usually wait until it gets down to about a half tank (approx 6 1/2 gallons) and I'll buy two of the Walmart boxes (5 gals). I can get about 100 miles to a gallon of DEF. Don't confuse this DEF with a fuel additive. It does NOT go into the fuel tank as it has its own. The fluid is used in the catalytic converter to increase the temperatures so that it will burn any unburnt fuel in the exhaust system. After 7000 miles, I can run my finger around the "inside" of my tail pipe and my finger comes out perfectly clean. No soot or carbon what so ever. Ron If you are only getting 100 miles per gallon of DEF , you have a real problem that needs to be addressed.k Opps... I dropped a digit. Make that 1000 miles per gallon. Stupid finger! :o With a little over 7000 miles on my odometer, I've put in 7 1/2 gallons of DEF so far.

RE: Lost 12 volt for coach and chassis

I donno, I think i'd start with the batteries and go from there. Ron

RE: RV GPS and TPMS...yes or no

Our coach and toad both have factory built-in Nav units...plus both have bluetooth. The Nav units can only be programed when the vehicle is in "park", and the bluetooth makes the smart phone hands free. When in the coach, my lovely DW is the navigator and sole proprietor of the smart phone. All I do is say "yes dear" and respond to her direction commands. No burrito, thank you very much.....and technology is great! Ron

RE: Sewer Odor (most likely the grey tank)

Well the lack of chemicals is not the reason why it smelled. It had to be either a trap did not have water in it or you might have a plugged up vent. That is the only way that water would be syphoned when you dump the water somewhere else like the kitchen sink. Now as to chemicals: The old blue stuff is a waste of money because all it does is camouflage the smell. What you need is enzyme product to clean out the garbage that has gone down into the grey tank. The same goes for your black tank. I use Happy Camper which eats up all that is in the grey and black tanks keeping them clean and when you dump it does not run the neighbors out of the park. Some RVers think that by using lots of water solves the problem. (WRONG) You would be surprised when you flush the dish water how much sticks to the inside walls of the grey tank. Enzyme product will clean it out and you will never have bad smell. Ray... you must be a salesman for Happy Camper. If not, the above post is strictly your opinion and as such, not necessarily true. However, you are entitled to your opinion, true or not. So go ahead and pay the $$ for that stuff...it's your money. Ron

RE: Today's weirdness....need some words of wisdom

Posted By: Ductape on 10/19/14 02:05pm The pressure won't escape from the toilet because the toilet has a valve in it. Unlike a home toilet, it is not going to back up. Sorry, but a black tank under pressure from a pressurized water source, WILL force water pass the toilet flush seal...just as it will force water up the vent line. Which ever is lower, will leak first. I have seen this happen with two DPs and a large Class C. And, if this happens to you, DO NOT try to flush the toilet...you MUST release the pressure in the black tank first by turning off the water and pulling the black tank drain valve. If you try to flush the toilet, be prepared for a shower of not so nice water. Ron

RE: Do you use an outside TV?

Roy...if you have neighbors, do you first ask them if they would mind you doing this? On our coach, the exterior tv was an option...one that we forgo. However, the hookups and power is completely wired to a compartment if I do decide to have one in the future. Personally, I just really don't see the need for one. Ron

RE: Sewer Odor (most likely the grey tank)

That's fine as long as you realize you have a problem and the chemicals are just a band-aid fix. I'd be willing to bet that this scenario would consist of less than 1% of those who use chemicals. Ron

RE: Is it wise to invest in a cover for my TT?

About the only problem I'm aware of with covering rv's is the movement of the fabric on the painted surface. If any dust or sand particles get under there, it will scratch and maybe even remove the paint. However, being in Kentucky, I'm sure you have winds, but no so much dust and sand. So, based on that, I would think a cover would be a good thing, especially if you get a lot of snow and rain. Protecting your investment is a good thing. That said, I would only purchase the absolute best cover with the softest interior I could find. Some have reinforced corners. Be aware however, that even the best will probably only last two to four years. Make sure you get one with a zippered access door to allow you inside if needed. Good luck Ron

RE: Looking for info on Dinghy towing my '03 CR-V

Isn't there also a fuse that needs to be removed?

RE: RV GPS and TPMS...yes or no

Since just about everybody now days has at least one smart phone, GPS units are getting to be a dieing breed. I don't think I would invest in one. TPMS however.....is a MUST in my book. The cost of a complete TPMS system is cheaper than one 22.5 mh tire, not to mention the damage it can cause if it blows and takes out fender wells, wiring, cables, brake lines, etc. IMO, TPMS should be a mandatory accessory on all rv's with tires.

RE: Sewer Odor (most likely the grey tank)

But your tanks are a closed system with a roof vent. Something is wrong. I suggest you check the AAV (air admittance valve) usually located under the kitchen or bath (or maybe both) sinks. They are cheap and can be found at any hardware store. Siphoning water out of a p-trap is possible and once refilled, should eliminate any odor coming from there. However... You should never have a black or gray tank odor inside your rv. Adding chemicals or deodorizers is just a waste of good money.
