RE: warranty issue

Warranty starts when the first buyer takes delivery, not when it hits the dealer's lot. Something's not right with the story, but if it's true it's time to start going up the food chain.

RE: Battery boomdocking dlemma.

I disconnect the factory WFCO converter and use a deck-mount IOTA-55 w/ charge controller to charge off a generator. Since it's a smart controller I get away with an hour a day of generator time & could probably go 1/2 hour a day. I'm running dual G27 12V batteries.

RE: Some info for owners of RV's with TPO roofs

Grand Design uses an Alpha System roof, so I bought Alpha System caulk. There's some question if regular Dicor can be used but the 2-step Dicor is supposedly OK.

RE: Another F150 towing questions

When I see "1/2-ton", "crew cab" and "bunkhouse" I have to ask - how many people are you hauling, and what's the yellow-sticker payload?

RE: Leaf spring broke, HELP!!!

Another option would be a local spring shop.

RE: Toilet usage

If we're going to a full hookup site I carry a few gallons in the fresh tank for potty stops and hand washing along the way. If we're camping w/o hookups but the campground has water available I'll fill up when I get there. I rarely travel with a full water tank.

RE: Northeast campground

Paul, go to Lake Placid/Saranac Lake, NY area in the beautiful Adirondacks. Give the North Pole Resort a call, 518-946-7733, they are a Good Sam campground with nice sites, clean bathroom/showers and convienient to everything and lots to see and do X2, we just spent a week there. The 100 Acre Woods side has 50A full hookup pull-through sites. You can hike, bike, paddle, or check out Lake Placid and the Olympic venues.

RE: New F150, soliciting input before buying a TT

Thanks all, I know the 5.0 makes its power higher in the RPMs, I just could not get to driving the EB - drove both several times. Looks like the nods are going to GD - going to look at it this weekend! FWIW, we will only be doing long weekend in the SE for the next few years, both still have full-time jobs. Longest tow is to Townsend, TN - 4hrs. Thanks for all the insights, I will nail actual payload capacity before I buy. Thanks! So what was wrong with the EB? Turbo lag?

RE: Help upgrading to lp/electric heater 120 switch

Why not put a couple of 1/2-width breakers in your converter panel?

RE: New F150, soliciting input before buying a TT

I wouldn't worry about pulling either trailer with that truck. And between the two, it would be the GD 2150 hands down. There are some pretty active GD and GD Imagine groups on Facebook.

RE: Letchworth State Park, NY questions

You could come north and hike / bike the Erie Canal trail. Flat, multi-use, and you can pick it up at numerous places. And of course you can kayak on it.

Leaking seals are a known Lippert issue.

RE: Cape Cod

If you feel like it and since you have a 4X4 you can get a beach driving permit. Air down the tires, put it in 4X4, and crawl to the beach. A 7-day permit is $50 as of last year. Is there any particular beach that you are allowed to drive on with the permit? We always did Race Point.

RE: Favorite Boondocking Spot in Northeast?

There are first come - first served sites in the Adirondacks but nothing that would accomodate a group of trailers. But don't count on getting one during the summer - they're continuously full. Ditto for sites in the Allegheny National Forest in NW Pa. DB was able to get a group site in the Loleta cg in the ANF (US Forest Service). No hookups, water available, but no dump station. If you reserve early enough you could get a string of sites in one of the NYS DEC campgrounds in the Adirondacks or Catskills. Or pick one of the developed cg's in the ANF (Red Bridge is our favorite) and get a bunch of sites. Pa State cg's have a "no alcohol" policy FYI. I see a lot of red Dixie cups though, but the rule is a good way to prevent the loud, roudy parties.

RE: whats your bumper carrying? bikes, spare tires, options

I used a BAL Hide a Spare & put the spare under the trailer. I have 2 storage boxes on the bumper for leveling blocks & chocks in one and firewood or generator in the other.

RE: Adirondack/Fingerlakes OR Upper Peninsula Michigan

Mountain biking, or road biking? Road biking in the Adirondacks puts you on busy, narrow roads. I know there are mountain biking areas but since I don't do that I have no specific information for you. Hiking can be anything from flat day hikes to one or more of the High Peaks. But the High Peaks have gotten very, VERY busy especially on the weekends. There are numerous smaller peaks with good views though. NY State is in the process of planning a multi-use trail from Tupper Lake to Lake Placid following an old rail bed. But that's a few years down the road. Our favorite cg is Rollins Pond, a no-hookup state cg. For a private cg we prefer North Pole Resorts (100 Acre Woods side.) It's in Wilmington, outside Lake Placid and close to Whiteface Mt. There's also a KOA in Wilmington but we've never stayed there.

RE: Changing an Axle

Another thought - call Hawk Frame & Axle in Fairport and ask them about bending the original axle.
