RE: Not being part of the PDI?

If you find anything wrong with the rig DO NOT accept the rig until it is fixed. If you accept the rig, Camping World(guessing by your post) will have -no- incentive to fix it in a timely manner. If they don't have your money yet, they have lots of incentive to get it fixed.

RE: New truck got hammered!!

I saw an interview with a body shop owner in Texas last week, he said he had two years of work lined up after the hail storms. About 10 years back a hailstorm hit an Airstream rally, the total damage to the rigs was said to exceed $1,000,000. Of course some of the folk will just take the payment and never have the dents removed.

RE: Tofino - Vancouver Is.

We stayed at Crystal Cove, probably would again You've been warned about BC-4? It gets a little narrow and tricky a couple places, like the speed-limit is 30 kph

RE: Thousand Trails Scam

.. And I am still ... still to this same day ... mad as He!! at that dealership for setting us up they way they did. Well, they are now a Camping World, and I hope Camping World will never allow those "Membership" campgrounds come anywhere near their doors. They have Good Sam campgrounds, which are pretty decent! And Membership to Good Sam is pennies, and GS campgrounds are more in abundance. ... I take it you never to into a CW, or don't pay attention. EVERY CW I've ever been in has a kiosk (not always manned) for some membership campground sales I take it you also don't know that Good Sam Inc (formerly AGI) also owns Camping Coast to Coast.

RE: Andersen hitch question

Well that's a new one on me. The coupler is a BALL coupler with tons of forgiveness. I have not had or heard of a problem. Bottom of page 5 on the install instructions.

Andersen hitch question

I'm considering switching hitches to the Andersen. I read in the docs that the hitch can jam if the truck/trailer are out of level, compared to each other. So the question is, how sensitive is this hitch to "off-level" situations. In the summer we spend a few weekend boon-docked on some fairly uneven ground, I usually don't need to disconnect for those weekends, but.... The current hitch weight is way more then I can remove, without using the king-pin on the trailer, when spending (sometimes) a lot of time getting things square so I can put it back in.

RE: In the "You Must Be Joking" Column..

Last Friday one of my friends had a blow-out on his travel-trailer. There was damage to the wheel-well and into the rig itself. He drove it home, unloaded it, and sold it on Craigslist inside an hour. Of course the price "reflected" the damage, unlike this one

RE: 86 Glendale Sterling, Gel batteries

I don't like WFCO's reliability, but it's probably better then the simple bulk-charger the rig has now. I'm still not clear your final concept, the stream of consciousness paragraph is leaving me confused. The 12V fuse block is usually either with the 120V breakers or the converter. But designers can't be trusted, it could be almost any where. You could put an AGM under the bed, or anywhere, at any angle. But again it's charged like a wet-cell. Are you planning to add an inverter? If so the gel's could be used to run that and the wet-cell the lights/water pump. This would mean two 12V "banks", but then you could have one that is gel and and then is wet.

RE: 86 Glendale Sterling, Gel batteries

Would it be safe to tie a battery or two in line with the solar panel charger as this would be the easiest...than this would hookup to the battery under the hood and all the batteries would equalize with each other? The battery under the hood (engine) should -not- be a gel-cell. The vehicle charging system could wreck a gel-cell. You can't hook regular/AGM batteries and gel-cells together, it just doesn't work. What kind of regulator is on the solar charger? One for regular/AGM?, if so, you really shouldn't used it to charge your gel-cells.

RE: 86 Glendale Sterling, Gel batteries

Yes i understand that...that's why I'm isolating it from the 120 charge converter. My.question is how do I hookup these batteries to the 12v system in the rv and the 120v inverter to just provide power and not charge? Is your converter also an inverter?

RE: Places to wash RV near Seattle (and condition the roof)

I wax the entire rig once a year, I put three coats on the front, it makes removing bug guts easier

RE: Places to wash RV near Seattle (and condition the roof)

Search for a semi-truck wash in your area. They usually do RVs too. I think a "large" goes for about $85 in my area. And before you pay anybody to "condition" the roof, tell us what kind of roof it has. That sounds like a scam to me. Or you can DIY at a vehicle wash with a semi-tuck bay (and built in walkway). I use the one in Belfair. But I know there are others in the region

RE: 86 Glendale Sterling, Gel batteries

True Gel batteries (ie not AGM) are not compatible with AGM/Wet-cell chargers. I'ts not the amps, it's the charging voltage. charging a Gel== 14.0 to 14.2V (float==13.1 to 13.3) charging a AGM== 14.4 to 15V (float==13.3 to 13.8) charging a "regular"== 14.4 to 14.9V (float== 13.1 to 13.4) So, if you are using real gel-cells and charging them with an regular or AGM charger, you will fry the batteries I can't really address you weight question

RE: Need park recommendation for Moab, UT

Stayed at Spanish Trail several years ago. Excellent facility south of town. I don't recall the view being spectacular; however, the campground was very good. south is very much just a "valley", most of the good view areas are north.

RE: Need advice on dealing with a nightmare CW service situation

Hi all. I was originally going to keep the name of our service provider out of my post for now, but I see CW has a forum section, so I guess this is where I should post. .... That's because this forum and Camping World are owned by the same firm. But posting here -might- get some of your issues fixed

RE: Does my camper have factory battery charger?

FYI, when those batteries wear out, don't replace them with Optima. Optima are over-priced and under perform. AGM batteries (like Optima) are not a bad idea. The problem with Optima is their construction actually gives them less capacity then a conventional cell design. A conventional AGM Group-24 will have more capacity then the Optimas.
