RE: Black Tank Won't Empty

It should empty completely....every tank I've ever seen the bottom slopes towards the dump valve opening. There may be some residual liquid like a cup or so but nothing like you are describing. Sounds like you might have the "Pyramid of Death". A pile of solids at the bottom. You can try dumping a couple of bags of ice in the tank and then drive around to see if it will break up any solids. If that doesn't work then it's time for a camera to see what might be stopping it up.

RE: Need advice on new truck

My 2007 Duramax doesn't fall under the new regs... After towing with this diesel one time, I told my wife I would never go back to a gas engine. The power is perfect for our 15,000lb 5th wheel. The exhaust brake makes going down hill worry free.

RE: Newbie Needing Answers

A Toyhauler bumper pull using a van as your tow vehicle sounds like the best trailer solution. The toyhauler garage area can be built to meet your needs...bunk beds, separate rooms...etc. A 5th wheel limits passenger comfort while towing. You would need a crew cab pickup which can get tight for 6 people during long drives. Although the 5th wheel gives you the best floorplan options. I've seen several with bunk beds and 1/2 baths for the kids. Rather than a Class C, I would go for a Class A with bunk beds...maybe an ex-tour bus would work.

RE: Banks Power Pack / Torque Tyube headers noise

Heat is the biggest problem in a class C with headers. Need good insulation to keep the feet from boiling.

RE: internet service

Many of the RV parks have WiFi either free or for a fee...it's not always the best and at certin times of the day will be slow. But since most gamers tend to fight late into the night it may work for you as an alternative to a data plan type solution.

RE: Help please! 1975 Alfa tt info

Check with this comapny: http://alfateersrvservice.com/ Many of the Alfa factory employees started here when the manufacturer closed up shop.

RE: Black tank pipe size

Or is your toilet equipped with a macerator pump or was one supplied for dumping. Since the macerator would break up the soilids a smaller discharge pipe would work.

RE: Slow Shower Drain

There are two screens the one you can see and one below that one. Pop up the first screen and you'll see an X in the drain pipe. This X will catch hair and gunk, eventually it will slow or stop the drain. Use tweezers or I use a small blade pocket knife to pick out the hair and gunk. Or the Zip-it will work.

RE: I don't have a cat . . .

If it's a feral cat don't feed it unless you plan on making it a pet. By feeding feral animals you do more harm than good. The sweet ladies in the neighborhood have been feeding feral cats. I finally had to do something because our neighborhood was being over run by these cats. In the past month I have trapped 14 cats, there are two in the traps as I write this. So far this morning I have seen five more cats on the block including a mother and two kittens headed over to one of the sweet lady's house. These 21 feral cats have all been born within the past two years. I take the cats to the local animal shelter. Many of the cities in our area are having problems with the growth of the feral cat popoulation, all have asked the public to stop feeding them.

RE: CG's Near Hanford, California

There's really not much in the area. Up until about 10 years ago we would stay at the Visalia/Sequoia KOA on Avenue 308 at Road 76. It's far enough off of the freeway so no noise. It's an older campground but acceptable. The rvparkreviews.com are a good reflection of what we experienced. We no longer go in that direction is why we haven't been there in 10 years. If you don't mind a drive our favorite in the area is near Three Rivers Here's the website: http://www.sequoiarvranch.com/ It's about 25 miles from Hwy 99 so it would put you about 35 miles from Hanford.

RE: DP vs. Gasser Bang for the Buck

Keep in mind a DP is based on heavy duty truck components where a gasser is based on medium duty truck or light truck components. Heavy duty trucks are designed to give million miles of service where medium duty is designed for hundreds of thousand miles of service. In my opinion, if I was looking for a used MH I would look at DP before looking at a gasser.

RE: Suburban water heater

Has it worked before ? Is the gas on ? Are you out of gas ? Is the electric pilot switched on ? Has the valve been turned on to heat or just pilot ? Clogged tube ? Lots of possible reasons....

RE: Where to at the Grand Canyon

Our best trip yet to the Grand Canyon was to leave Williams, AZ via the train to the Grand Canyon. We walked around the Lodge area and explored the shops and museums. Took the shuttle to other highlights and then rode the train back. It was a full day but lots of fun. Gave us an old west feel. We paid extra for the lounge car...very comfortable. There are RV Parks in Williams including one associated with the train. On another trip we got up early (very cold) and drove over to sunrise point to watch the sun rise and paint colors throughout the Grand Canyon. Very beautiful experience but cold.

RE: Sacramento to Yosemite

Shortest route is HWY 99 south to 120 east out of Manteca, winding narrow road but doable if you take your time. Best but longest is HWY 99 south to 140 east out of Merced. Most interesting is HWY 49 south out of Placerville to 120 east, winding and narrow but lots of California historic sites along the way.

RE: Campgrounds in the Long Beach, CA area

If you are visiting family in Long Beach you have lots of choices but most will require a drive that can be 45 minutes without traffic to 1 1/2 hours with traffic. Golden Shore would be the closest and shortest drive time. Several parks near Disneyland would mean at least a 45 minute drive if no traffic. I would check rvparkreviews.com for other big rig friendly parks near Long Beach.

RE: Roof servicing - how often ?

Your best bet is to inspect it from a ladder the more you stay off of it the better. If you do need to go on the roof use a piece of plywood with a protective pad under it to help distribute the weight. The roof should last a minimum of 10 years with simple care. Wash it from time to time using plain water and a soft brush or a cleaning product formulated for TPO roof membranes.

RE: disadvantage of having MoHo parked in driveway.

From day one of owning an RV we have always stored it at a storage lot. In addition, at our home, we have security cameras, alarm system (will call our cellphone), signs, ask neighbors to keep an eye out for newspapers/flyers, random lights inside and dusk to dawn lights outside for security when we are gone.

RE: 36-->35?

The good thing about most public campgrounds they are located in popular tourist destinations. That means there will be at least one private campground nearby. Most private campgrounds are big rig friendly. So eventhough the public campground may not allow longer than 35ft RVs you can find something at a nearby private campground and drive in to see the sights. With our 38ft 5th wheel, we stayed outside of Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks at a great Private Campground (Sequoia RV Ranch) which was a short drive to the entrance gate to go into the parks to see the sights. We had a great spot overlooking the Kaweah River.

RE: Printing Issue

Make sure the printer is setup for the correct size of paper as well.

RE: Random tire thought

Most tire dealers have access to a wholesaler with a delivery system that will get them tires the same day or next day. They only stock the heavy sellers and then order others as needed. I chose to wait two hours for my Michelin XPS RIBS to be delivered from the warehouse to the tire dealer rather than take what they had in stock.
