Never mind, I figured it out.

RE: Paying GSRA with rewards

I have lots of rewards points built up from my GS credit card and was wondering if I can pay for my Roadside Assistance with them. If yes, how do I do it? I can't find any reference to this on he GS/Visa website. Ron

RE: New Toad

Check out the Chevy Traverse. It is a less fancy version of the Buick Enclave. And the GMC sister to those two... Acadia. However, all three of those are right around 5000 lbs. Not sure about 3 seats, but how about the Ford Flex? Does it have to be brand new? How about a used Pilot that can b e towed 4 down?

RE: Claas A/ Class C

Posted By: tnrv'er on 07/15/16 03:45am Originally i was thinking of buying a used class C motorhome. Then i started looking at smaller (30') class A's. C's are not available in rear diesel engine configuration. Rear engine configuration allows huge storage compartments underneath the coach body. As far as I know, rear engine Class A's are limited to diesel engines and I don't know of any 30' DP. Ron

RE: slow down, or speed up

Use brake controller to lightly apply trailer brakes, don't slow the TV until the wagg is gone the slow and determine the cause. Anyone who tows a trailer that does not know this, shouldn't be towing a trailer. Ron

RE: New RV park in centralpoint oregon Exit 33

If we are in southern Oregon, we will ALWAYS stay at 7 Feathers at exit 99. It is definitely the best rv park on I5 in any of the three states I5 goes through. This park you're referring to would have to at least match, if not exceed, 7 Feathers features and price. My 2 cents...anyway. Ron

RE: Sway Issues with 2013 1500 Suburban

Put a little more weight on the trailer's tongue. You can go up to %15 of the trailer's total (and actual) weight. Ron

RE: Sewer odor when towing

Today I tried to Ops Check the Calgon and laundry detergent. Started by dumping the tanks both black and gray. Added the ingredients to the tanks with a few gallons of water. We drove about 100 miles toward Denali NP. When we stopped for a necessary break, the odor was present. RATS! We then continued toward Anchorage and stopped for the night at Willow AK. I figured the odor would be present. TO our surprise we were odor free. Yippee Skippy! We will try it again tomorrow and post the results. Hoping the KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) method worked! CM That's good news CM. If you are traveling daily or more than a couple of times a week, I would only use the soap/calgon about once a week. The rest of the time, a few gallons of water in a freshly drained tank should suffice. Just remember to use plenty of water when using the toilet and when draining/rinsing. Have a great trip in Alaska. Ron

RE: Dumb mistakes

My absolute worst (and dumbest) mistake was turning on the black tank rinse and then forgetting about it while I drove the toad to the store. Results were a flooded motor home of black tank contents. :S I just can't imagine anyone doing anything dumber!! :o Ron

RE: New 4X4 vehicles for flat towing

You know, maybe he just doesn't like them. We all have our likes and dislikes, no need to question his. Ron

RE: New 4X4 vehicles for flat towing

Does it have to be 4x4? How about AWD? Many of those are available and towable. Ron

RE: Sewer odor when towing

Before you travel, try putting a cup of laundry detergent (liquid) and a cap full of Calgon water softener along with about 5 gallons of fresh water in both black and gray tanks. Sloshing around while you travel will clean out the insides of the tanks and once you arrive at your destination, drain both and rinse out the black. I bet your odor problems will disappear. Give it a shot. Ron

RE: Contacts and Cataracts

Yeah, that works for those under 40 (or so). But due to ageing, the eyes will continue to deteriorate and you'll be back with glasses or contacts again. Enjoy the 20/20 while you can. Ron

RE: Sewer smell in trailer and under kitchen sink

Most don't realize that the gray tank can smell something awful also. As mentioned, you4 problem is probably the AAV and needs to be replaced. However, I have to jump in here with my usual rant on chemicals. In my, and many others, opinion....chemicals just aren't needed. If you have an odor, you have a problem with a leak, broken seal, plugged vent pipe, or in this case, a faulty AAV. Chemicals just "mask" the odor and does nothing to repair the problem. The key is water! Before traveling, rinse out the tank the best your can and then put in a couple of gallons of water and add a cup of laundry soap (I use liquid Oxy-Clean) and a capfull of liquid Calgon water softener. During the traveling the sloshing solution will wash down the inside of the tank and the water softener will coat it with a slick film that is resistant to "stuff" sticking to it. Once at your destination, drain and rinse the tank once more and add a couple of gallons of water back into the tank. Never, never leave the tank without water in it. You can do the same with the gray tank, except since they don't have a rinse system, you have to make do without it. Do the same procedure again when you head home and rinse once you are. I've had many different rv's, from pop-up to my current motor home and have always used the same procedure. My tanks do not smell in the rv and my tank level gauges work perfectly Anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking to it. Ron

RE: Contacts and Cataracts

I don't understand. What's the problem? I've had cataract surgery in both eyes, radial keratotomy in both eyes and still wear contacts. No big deal. Ron

RE: Age restrictions

If they have the 10 year rule you should look somewhere else to stay! If they really don't want you there you should just keep your money in your pocket and visit a campground where they remember what camping means. One campground wanted us to send pictures of the coach, including all sides and the ROOF! Oh, heck no! We went somewhere else and so should you! Bill, with all due respect, the OP stated "rv parks"...not campgrounds. Two different things. RV parks are typically privately owned and have the right to make their own rules. As you mentioned, if you don't like their rules...don't go there. Ron

RE: Gray/Black sensor problems

Unfortunately, once there is a build up on the sensors and is left for a longer period of time before trying to clean it off, will be very difficult to remove. To keep the sensors working properly, regular (and often) cleaning is required from day one. Both of my motor homes were perchased new and I have never had a problem with the tank sensors in either one. However, my TT was used (if even only briefly) but was allowed to set at the bank (repossessed) for about six months and naturally, the prior owner did not clean it out prior to it being hauled off. It took me many cleanings (see my post above) to finally get the sensors to work but once they did, they worked just fine for as long as I had the trailer. Ron

RE: Quick Response to Tire Blowout

Unfortunately, when calling any roadside service for help, you are at the mercy of the person you answers your request. It really doesn't matter if it is Good Sam, Coach Net, AAA...or who ever. However, I have found in the past that if I am connected to a person who is giving me ****, I will hang up and call again. I have yet to be connected to the same person again and normally, the 2nd call I will get someone who knows what to do with my problem. You lucked out and got the right person on the first call.
