RE: Feral cat in 5er

We have a nesting box next to the RV, and have for years and years. The feral cats sleep in it and we have -never- had mice in the rig. Nor do we have moles in the yard. We've made the cats allies rather then pests.

RE: 1 ton truck and AF 990?

I am currently hauling my AF 990 on my 1999 F-250 super cab 7.3 with mods being E rated tires and wheels, Big Wig sway bars front and rear, air bags and Rancho 9000 shocks. It seems like quite a load on the truck. When fully loaded the camper weighs in the neighborhood of 5,000# Also with the camper on the truck I am afraid to tow my 20' boat. Now to the question. Could I make this work with a SRW 1 ton truck or would I have to go to a DRW truck? Anyone out there doing this with a 1 ton SRW? Thinking about getting a used late model or new truck. Thanks John With that much weight, I think you would be happier with the DRW Back when I was buying my 99 F250 the Ford sales-geek told me he had sold an F250 to someone for their AF camper (I had mentioned AF, since I would be towing a 24-5N). He said the guy popped the hub of the rear-axle going around a corner...

RE: Coeur D'Alene to Pocatello ID tomorrow

I'm looking at 90 east to 15 south. https://goo.gl/maps/VcbW6spGB3z While it's all freeway, you cross the Continental Divide twice what way. Plus two additional passes. I'm only recalling one pass on US-95 and nothing once you hit the Interstate in Idaho. If weather is good I'd go US-95 Getting a car at Dave Smith eh

RE: Northwood rigs

For vacations and weekends the Fox Mountain could do you fine. For long trips, the Fox Mountain is short on storage

RE: Northwood rigs

While we have dealers close...I'm surprised how many people travel from the east coast to west coast buy a NW product. And also surprised how many people that want a used NW in the east. Last summer we were in Banff and one of the neighbor rigs was a brand-new Fox Mountain, with temp plates for Tenn. They had started on the summer trip with the Grandson in the AF camper and decided it was too small. They stopped at the factory and talked with the dealer in town, and left town with their new fiver. :) Of course 10+ years back NW had a factory back east east, but closed it/

RE: Northwood rigs

Actually a well insulated rig will do you well in a hot clime also, besides keeping heat in, it will keep heat out. Northwoods will authorize "non-dealer" warranty repairs, if you are distant from any dealer.

RE: Suburban SF-30F furnace won't turn on

Chris is pretty much dead bang on, on his guesses. Sail switches do go bad and/or attract lint/dog hair/etc... stopping them from working. Chris is also a pro, even owns his own RV repair business

RE: Suburban SF-30F furnace won't turn on

Does it "click" if you turn the thermostat off, wait, then back on. If so, the click means the thermostat is probably working, if not, it might be bad. If it does click, see the advise above

RE: Suburban SF-30F furnace won't turn on

Ok my furnace on our 2008 Keystone Cougar 276 came on this morning started to heat up and then shut off after about 15 mins.andnow does not want to come back on. Any ideas on what it is. Blower, control board or what? Who knows.... furnace model, thermostat model, exact symptoms, much more details needed.

RE: Seattle to Butte Yellowstone Rapid City Medora.Best Route?

Yes Yellowstone is "open" year around. It's just not all the roads are "open". If the roads are closed the buildings may also be closed, and so are the campgrounds. The only road open (to vehicles) is the north entrance at Mammoth. When the rest of the roads open depends on the year, a "low snow" year it could be April. A heavy snow year, well, I've had a snow-ball fight (from fresh fallen snow) on July 4th. I've seen years when the passes aren't opened until mid June. On average it snows (a little) every June. It really depends on the year, most El Nino weather patterns lead to a low snow pack (in 1977 I drove through the entire park in early April). So this -might- be a low snow year. But maybe not.... I used to live in the area and have been in the "park" every month of the year.

RE: Suburban SF-30F furnace won't turn on

SWAG The click means it's getting power. The next thing that is supposed to happen is the blower start. Since that's not happening it's probably either the control board or and blower. If it's the board, replace with a "Dino" brand board, they have twice the warranty the Suburban ones do

RE: when is the best time to go to yellowstone national park

I used to live in the area. Hot, honestly hot? Sometimes, others.... well one July 4th weekend we had a snowball fight made from snow that had fallen the night before But I prefer the "non-Touron" season, that is spring and fall. Never "over the holidays" in winter and never from July to August.

RE: Triton V-10

The pickups and vans the came with the V10 weighed that much. just what kind of a MH are getting? Also recall the the F-series and E-series get different versions of the V-10 The F-series gets the 3-valve (with more HP) and the E-series gets the 2-valve. The head is too large on the 3-valve to fit in the E-series But, ya, my F350 dual weighs more the 7000 lbs

RE: 2002 Fleetwood Wilderness

We've owned Fleetwood They were inconsistent in construction, varying from good to crapy. But at that age, who maintained it, and how well, is more important then that Fleetwood made it. I once saw a 20 year old Fleetwood that looked like it had just been delivered from the factory, because the owner(s) took care of it.

RE: Axle Flip Arctic Fox 22G

Eh? Low, not in my experience in owning 2 different Foxes for over 15 years. They generally have a rep for "tall" rigs. I'd call the factory and get the frame height of the rig they are building for you.
