RE: Crack in sidewall of rear outside dually

It appears to be a minor cut, get it inspected at a major tire dealer but I will guess they will say it is within limits.

RE: Smoked the brakes yesterday-update on test

Having bakes on the toad helps a lot. We had Saturn and the brakes would lock up if we stood on the brakes in the Mh. Both Edges have shown they work by just feel and the brakes are warm when we. stop. Four thousand pounds of car that the Mh won't have to try to slow by itself at least.. Besides it's the law, you must have toad brakes.

RE: I Really Do Try To Support Camping World, but it's hard.

I will not buy from Camping World unless I have no other choice. I had a bad experience with them over the solar refrigerator vent that I had to replace the fan three times and the solar panel once. I left a bad review and they would not publish it. I tried three times and even was told by Marcus that it would be published and another rep who phoned me also told me the same but it never was published. I have found out since that no review under four stars ever gets published so this is not an honest company and you have no way of reviewing an item before purchasing it. Their prices are always higher than mail order and other businesses in the area so why use them?

RE: looking for a vehicle to tow.

I used to tow a Honda CRV but I gave it to my daughter and just purchased a 2007 Chevy HHR. It is very light and tows well, also gets 32 mpg so it is great for side trips.

RE: Deposit fee for dogs

Camping is for families with kids,dogs,cats and maybe even the ones who enjoy themselves with a little camp party with noise. Resorts are for people who hate kids,dogs,cats and having fun. That's why we stick to state parks where you can live and have fun, not sit in your big show off rig and worry about neighbors with kids,dogs and cats. Get out there and meet these people and join in the fun,you might live longer.

RE: Anyone tried these tires?

Don't have any experience with the truck tires but I have been running Kumho tires on my cars for years, best tires I have ever bought.

RE: Class A vs Class C: Maintenance and Towing

RE: Jack antenna sealant ?

I use the Dicor self leveling sealant on anything on my roof. Always works great.

RE: Depressing but a must read for all RV'ers...

That is the reason we started fulltiming early, Our best friend died from cancer three weeks after he was diagnosed. I too am a cancer patient. We had planned to start when I reached 65 but when diagnosed I was only 57, we sold our house 3 months later, bought the best motorhome we could afford and hit the road. We have no regrets and are enjoying every minute of it. Sure we have to workamp to afford it and still keep a little money in reserve but we love camphosting so all is well. The doctors have given me between 5 and ten years from when I was diagnosed so we are doing what we want and enjoying however much time we have left together. I too tell everyone who tells me they would like to fulltime one day, why not now before it is too late.

RE: What is the latest on RedMaxPro peeling and removal.

Out here in the desert my Zep wax is peeling everywhere, wish I had never put it on there. I have used ammonia and zep wax remover, found out that the zep wax remover will also damage paint so I am just letting it peel and hope by next fall the sun will take it all off. If you plan to stay in the desert don't apply this******because it will peel off.

RE: Norcold RV and Marine refrigerator?

Does the Avanti run on 12 volts too or just 120? I don't boondock but I thought the 12 volts would be good when traveling during the day.

Norcold RV and Marine refrigerator?

Anyone have any experience with the Norcold 12 volt/120 volt refrigerators made for RVs, boats and trucks. Sounds like a good solution to replace the fire bomb no cooling Norcold RV refrigerators. I am looking at the Norcold 7 to replace my 16 year old Norcold model 9652. It has a compressor and cooling coil on the rear of the unit and comes with a condenser cooling fan installed. It would eliminate the need for an inverter to power it while on the road. The cost is about the same as a replacement gas, electric model. I have only found one residential refrigerator that will fit my space and it will take 2 to 4 weeks to get it.

RE: Oh - nooo. Not the engine repair you want to hear so soon

Only 3200 miles in a year, seals dry out and crack. The more you use it the longer it will go without a problem.

RE: Refrigerator solar fan

I just sent all the info to the rep so let's see if anything gets done this time.

Refrigerator solar fan

Since Camping World will not allow negative reviews of it's products I will post it here so no one else will get stuck with the poorly made refrigerator solar fan sold by them, (Camco 42165). I installed the fan and solar cover as per the directions in 2012 and it worked for about eight months then the fan quit. After numerous calls to Camping World they finally got Camco to agree to send a new fan. Well after waiting over a month I called Camping World again and they said they would just send a new unit to me. In the meantime The fan from Camco arrived, I installed it and all seemed well. I unplugged the fan in cold weather because I didn't need it, however in about six months after hooking it back up the fan stopped again. I then installed the fan from the unit Camping World sent and it worked for about two weeks, I then climbed onto the roof and found the solar cells cracked and deteriorated from the sun, imagine that from solar cells! I then installed the new solar cover that was in the kit and it worked again, that was in May and yesterday the fan quit again. I bought a 12 volt fan to replace the junk solar setup. I have submitted two negative reviews on the Camping World website and if you look at it today you will see a review from 2011 is the last one, just happens to be a good review! I have been in contact with Marcus on here who swears they don't discard negative reviews but in fact they do, that is why they review each and every review you submit, so they can sensor them. If they sold good products instead of this cheap junk from China that is overpriced to start with then they wouldn't have to be afraid of reviews.

RE: The two big bills come in August...

RE: Looking for opinions

Lots of good advice and recommendations so far. Obviously you are not alone in your suffering or your hope. The decisions you face have been faced and overcome before. I would ask that your keep an open mind, don't ever give up hope and DO NOT let your life be defined by this disease! Admittedly, I have never been in your shoes, so I don't know what I would do, but I want to think my advice is still good. My plan, at 66, is to do whatever I can afford. My wife and I will enjoy our travel till we can't, but we have decided together to keep our joy in front of us and not be overcome by immediate circumstances. Please be as happy as you can be, and know that there are lots of folks who don't even know you, who are praying for you. Thank you.

RE: Looking for opinions

We are hosting at a State Park now in New Mexico and the park manager is aware of my condition so he told me to do whatever I feel like doing and other than that he just wants me to be the eyes and ears of the park. We are committed here until October and the park manager kind of would like us to stay through the winter as well. It is good for me so I think we will stay. I have pretty well decided to stay here until spring if we can. The wife wants to attend her school reunion in Los Angels in October and visit her parents in Oregon sometime this winter, we can do these by car. Then I believe we will start back east by way of South Dakota, Niagara Falls, then down the east coast back to Florida. That way I can get the wife's bucket list out of the way. I hope to find a cheap lot to buy for the RV somewhere close to the family and my hospital in the Florida Panhandle. I don't believe I ever want a house again, I can stay in the motorhome much cheaper and it requires a lot less maintenance. We can always do part time RV'ing from there as long as I am able, just not so far away as what we are now.
