RE: Stripped Anode Rod

So it's so tight you rounded the head off. And now you want to try an easy-out? I'd leave it - if you break off the easy out you'll be really in a world of hurt.

RE: Macerator question...

On my Flojet macerator pump if you push the button all the way down and release it the switch will lock and the pump runs continuously. Pushing it down again unlocks it.

RE: grey and black water tanks

37 gal tanks, and DW & I can easily go a week on the black tank (but we're gone during the day.) But daily Navy showers for both of us and doing dishes fills the gray tank (and empties the fresh tank) in 2 days.

RE: Coastal Maine campground recommendations

Sorry, but -1 for Oceanside KOA. We stayed there for a week at the end of June. Not impressed, this was our first (and probably last) KOA.

RE: Travel Trailer Purchase

You need to do your homework on your tow vehicle capacity first. And DON'T listen if a salesman says "sure, you can tow that,no problem." Then it's wide open. How many are going camping with you? Bunkhouse? Rear bath, rear kitchen, rear living area? Travel trailer or 5th wheel (if the truck is big enough?) Thor and Forest River now have 90%+ of the RV market. You can sort out the entry level trailers then move up from there.

RE: Bringing kayaks camping

I picked up a set of Yakima Outdoorsman rack & bars off Craigslist. We haul a 17' canoe but two short kayaks would also fit without having turn clearance problems. Some people make their own racks.

RE: Treating your roof.

I just cleaned mine with Murphy Oil Soap & don't use any protectants.

Our North Trail has a slide out extension on the back.

RE: Memories of your very first trailer camping trip

This had to be in '69. I was 16 & the oldest of 5 kids. Dad borrowed a pop-up and dad, mom & me tag-team drove from Buffalo to Florida over Christmas break. The tv was a 9-passenger Pontiac Catalina wagon - full size, where you fold the back 2 seats down, load a 4'X8' sheet of plywood between the wheel wells, and closed the tailgate! After the first night middle DB & I slept in the car with the seats folded down. 7 people in a pop-up was tight. We drove on Daytona beach and did a tour of Cape Canaveral. There's a picture of my dad with his arm outstretched on the track of the rocket transporter (can't do that today!)

RE: Portable gas can rant, and a really good solution

I picked up a couple of the old style cans at the local flea market.

RE: Reasonable Prep Fees?

$0 is a reasonable prep fee, that's what I paid.... just wait until they try to sell you overpriced WD hitches... extended 'warranty'.. roadside service..etc.. Just like car dealers, they will try to get as much as possible out of you.. your job is to not let them.. be prepared to walk. This.

RE: Filling fresh water tank question

White RV hoses are supposed to be lead-free, though I've seen garden hoses advertised as "drinking water safe." Hoses are relatively inexpensive - why not buy another RV hose?

RE: USRoute 20 vs I-90 New York.

+1 for the I-86 route. Most of it is good road now. It cost me $20 for the NYS Thruway toll from Rochester to the Mass Pike a few weeks back, I can't imagine the toll from Ripley.

RE: best route syracuse to lake placid

I-81, RT 3 (& 3A) to Rt 86 has worked for us for 20+ years. I take Old Military Rd to bypass Lake Placid itself. If we're going to Wilmington, Rt 86 from Placid to Wilmington is narrow in spots. If we're in the Old Forge region we'll do Rt 28 / Rt 12. If you take the Northway & Rt 73 to Placid it's a longer route. Edit - I take I-81 to Rt 342 to avoid downtown Watertown. And Harrisville is a speed trap.

RE: Simple Green Cleaner for Your Roof

Well, I just used Murphy Oil Soap on my roof.

RE: SRT Charger Hellcat

We visited my mom last weekend and my nephew shows up in his new ride - a 700HP supercharged Challenger. No,I didn't get to drive it since he's still breaking it in. But $80K?

RE: Odometer

Not sure, but I believe speedo calibration is handled by the drivetrain computer. I think a dealer tech can put in a calibration based on tire size and axle ratio.

RE: Proper placement for stablizer jacks?

I have an opinion on electric stabs and it's not favorable. The same mechanism that lets them adjust for side to side height differences also allows the TT to rock on its centerline. I put an automotive scissors jack under the frame in front of the front axle, almost under the steps. It goes a long way to stabilizing the TT. Actually, I leave the door side a bit low when levelling and use the scissors jack for the final adjustment, then run the electric stabs down.

RE: Help solving tire wear pattern please

I had the same situation except I could visibly see the wheel was off vertical. I took the TT to a local heavy-duty frame shop and they were able to bend it back in place. And they corrected the toe and thrust angle on both axles.
