RE: Maybe dumb leveling question.

I have 2 levels, one shows the side to side level, the other the front to back. The high point stays on the ground, the opposite corner, the low point gets the sum of the two levels in blocks under the wheel(s). The others get the side to side or front to back blocks depending on the placement relative to the high point. I just drive up on the blocks after the blocks are placed in the appropriate locations.

RE: Making a corner queen bed?

I got tired of hearing my wife complain about the corner bed in our first RV, so after the first year we traded it in on an RV with no corner bed. Worked for us.

RE: E bay or Amazon?

I have used both and I usually choose the lower priced one, usually eBay. Never had a problem with either.

RE: Safe to have rear suspension lifted for clearance?

Just to reinforce what DrewE said. Leveling will be difficult, and it is important to have the refrigerator fairly level.

RE: RV storage

Mine sits outside under a layer of snow. I replace the tires every 5-7 years and have never had a problem with that. I would do the same if it was stored indoors. I have had no problems with brakes or rotors and have never used an internal heater in storage.

RE: What determines battery cable size?

If you have a generator you may want larger wire than #4. I have a 3000 watt generator and it can draw 80 Amps to start. The OEM used #2 wire for the battery connections.

RE: I have a hearing problem!!

I bought a 19" TV and it has terrible sound. I had an old set of speakers and I plugged them into the TV. The sound is fine now.

RE: rv camping in Canada, different than camping in the US?

You can get to Labrador from Quebec, cross Labrador, then take a ferry from Blanc Sablon, QC to Newfoundland. In my photo collection are pics of me going the opposite way. You are right. When we were in Newfie we went past that ferry and decided that on our return trip south we would take the ferry to Labrador. Unfortunately, when we got back we found a tanker had caught fire in the harbor and the ferry dock was closed until further notice. So much for our trip to Labrador.

RE: Guidance with installing TV in my 2009 Majestic 28A

I looked at the screws I used. The screws that hold the arm to the block are fairly heavy and go thru the block and into the wall. Nothing special about them, ordinary wood screws with a hex / Phillips head. I just don't want to go through the wall and have the screw come out through the exterior wall. Mine had several screws that went into the wall. I removed one and measured it. That was the limit that I would allow screws to go into the wall. If you remove some of the trim you can see how the wall is constructed and use the appropriate length screws. The wall in your RV may or may not be the same as the wall in mine.

RE: Guidance with installing TV in my 2009 Majestic 28A

I have a Four Winds 28A. I mounted my 22" TV to the front of the coach, just behind the driver's seat. Here is a link to a post I made showing how I installed it. Link Hope it helps. Thanks a million! Just what I needed. Really appreciate it. What kind of screws did you use? I used ordinary wood screws. I don't recall the exact details. I can look in the morning. There were several screws in the wall so I looked at them to determine the length to use. The block of wood was screwed on to the wall then the arm was screwed on to the block.

RE: Dingy braking - do, did, or won't

I have always used a braking system since I acquired my motorhome. I have to admit that there have been times that I was glad I had the extra braking.

RE: How long does a water filter last?

My filter in the house lasts anywhere from about a month to about 4 months. It all depends on whatever is in the water, the amount of water used and the filter. I don't have a filter in the RV so it never has to be changed. BTW I drink the water in the RV.

RE: Snow white - but snow weight? (How much on roof)

I have had well over 2 feet of settled snow on the roof of my RV and have not had a problem. I agree that you would probably do more damage shoveling the snow off than the snow will do.

RE: Class C extended chassis, Thoughts or your experiences

Pretty much what everyone else has said. Mine is a 28A but is actually about 31' long. We tow a Subaru, about 3000+ lbs. Never have noticed any problems with it.

RE: rv camping in Canada, different than camping in the US?

We want to rv in Newfoundland and Nova Scotia next. We have visited Newfie 2x and loved it, but we didn't take the RV. That turned out to be beyond our budget. I lived in Newfoundland for 24.5 years. Traveling by rv should be less than any other way, except motorcycle and tent. Something is out of kilter here. I certainly have heard of places where the facility owner, would say, 'use our parking lot'. Of course, this plan includes taking the ferry Port aux Basques to N. Sydney both ways. The Argentia costs lots more. & there are ways to be careful about gasoline cost too. Check Public Utilities Board for fuel prices: http://www.pub.nf.ca/orders/ppo/fuel/Fuel_161208.pdf Memorize this url http://www.roads.gov.nl.ca/cameras/default.stm There are lots of related travel links. Still, I should say my reason for moving away from NL upon retirement was to get away from the ferry cost. It's a very big source of outmigration, especially for those with grandchildren living 'away'. :C My comment about the cost was based on the cost of the ferry to get to Newfoundland. At the time the Canadian and US $ were about the same and the ferry would have cost us about $600 each way as I remember. As it was, we had a delightful time staying mostly at B & Bs.

RE: Leveling

I have used 2 x 10 wooden blocks with tapered ends and 3 different lengths for many years with no problems. Never have seen the need to buy plastic blocks. I just drive up on the blocks.
