RE: Propane Detector mystery

Detector may be type that indicates end of life - they're only good for 5yrs at most. Replace it. That's been my experience. That was my first thought.

The newer Garmins also display the upcoming road profile (ie grade) and have traffic (in metro area's by FM radio) The last has been informative at least, once it offered me a reroute

RE: RV park recommendation-Seattle Washington

As noted, being on the "right" side of the sound means taking a ferry to get to Seattle Now, a ferry ride is not a bad thing... Eagle Tree might be better bet (right next door) I kinda like the State parks (except Illahee, too close to Bremerton), but they have no wifi, cable-tv, etc. if your goal is the region, stay across the water. If it's just Seattle, stay on the noisy side

The reason is because FMCA membership numbers are dropping like a rock. If they don't bring in towables they are likely to end up shutting down in the not too far distant future. Numbers are not dropping like a rock. Actually there is an increase in membership. .. It all depends on what date you compare from Pick the right date, and it's bad, or great. But long term, the membership is decreasing and increasing in age. A combination that is not going to be good. What I'm uncertain of is their cash-flow, if they aren't bringing in more then they are spending.....

Don't see it happening. I think most of its members are 55 and older, i`m guessing the average age in the mid 60`s . the average RV trailer owner is in their 30`s and 40`s. 2 completely different groups. Per their own stats, 10 years ago it was 65, today the average age is 71. Increasing age is not a good demographic.

I just spent a few minutes checking and it appears to have not been mentioned on this forum The FMCA is considering opening membership to all RV types. The discussion over on the FMCA forum is, interesting.

RE: Adding windows to fifth wheel - new Denali

I'd talk to the factory, there could be something in that wall only they know about.

RE: Artic Fox 29.5T 2018

They haven't built a 2018 yet. Maybe they are going to be the same as the 2017(which seem to be rather scarce)? I'll bet they have. I got my 2012 in early June of 2011

RE: Anderson Ultimate Connection - FAILED

Just saw another failure, but again not of the hitch This one is a failure of the rails, it appears the rails were not bolted to the frame, but rather only to the bed.

RE: Anderson Ultimate Connection - FAILED

I've seen photo's on one that failed (on Facebook) But the owner had installed himself and installed the king-pin adapter backwards. It was clearly an owner screw up

RE: power gear 140-1140

RE: Low Clerance POI

I've used the Low Clearance POI file in an older GPS, the problem I had with it is that it warns you about a low clearance with-in say 1/4 mile But it doesn't tell you the low clearance is on the side-road about to pass under the freeway (as one example)

RE: How do I copy DVR recording to laptop

Well It depends on your Cable-Co, mine (Wave) has their Motorola DVR programed to be stupid if it's powered up and not connected to the cable system and able to talk to their up-stream equipment I learned this a couple winters ago, after a major storm outage, we got power back before the Cable-Co box upstream of us. So we couldn't watch any of the programing we had recorded. I have a box connected to my computer (with software) that allows me to record any NTSC, clear-QAM or ATSC direct to my computer. That's the only easy way I have to record TV to an un-encoded format.

RE: Bought new TT today

Sumner RV. Washington State. Haven't picked it up yet, but buying experience and price was good. I'll post back after p/u and 2 day trip. I've dealt with Sumner on more then one occasion and consider them a Dealership vrs a Stealership (that tries to take as much money as they can). There are certainly worse dealers to deal with. Be advised they have two locations and their brand-line up is different at the locations.

RE: Dexter Keyless Door

Not familiar with the Dexter, but the ones I am have an internal battery, accessible only from the inside latch. ---edit--- I looked it up, four AA batteries, remove one and it's a manual lock

RE: Stick with Glomex antenna or get a better replacement?

I found that regular coat hanger inside the camper worked better than the Glomax on the roof. .. I found the same thing with the Jensen, pure junk

RE: What makes a light fixture 12v DC vs. 120v AC?

Any 120V fixture can be modified to run on 12V. Any 120V wire will do fine on 12V. You will learn that finding "Edison" (either the medium or small) base 12V lights is more difficult and expensive, but still possible. I've even seen 12V LED bulbs in these bases.

RE: Camping World buys Gander Mountain

Last I heard the buyout deal did not go through? (BPS buying Cabelas) But I am not sure. ... Not that I could find, an article by Motley Fool this past week made the case for BPS paying too much

RE: Camping World buys Gander Mountain

Reminds me of k mart/sears deal & hows that working out. Well, in the years they've managed to stay in business, I can now buy Craftsmen Tools at the local K-Mart. So if that's the case with CW/Gander Mtn. then maybe I will be able to peruse RV stuff at GM. Except they sold Craftsman to Stanley Diehard and Kenmore are also for sale Sears has already sold many of the buildings they owned to a holding company owned by the current CEO It's a slow liquidation of their assets
