RE: oven problem

Thermalcouple, or lack of functioning one can cause that condition. There cheap, so replace it and see what happens.

RE: Looking for in Dash Radio/GPS

Garmin offers free updates for life. Built in can cost you a couple hundred dollars for the upgrade CD. Your choice, but for my money a stand alone Garmin is a better deal.

RE: Sofa is getting soft

Have new foam pieces cut to replace the old soft sest cushions. Not cheap, but should improve things a bit.

RE: can my chevy express g1500 pull my camper ?

Not sure where your getting your numbers from but..... GM makes a 5.3L not a 5.8 Trailer numbers your cited dry or gross weight? I suspect dry, meaning when loaded with stuff it could likely top 5500-6000 pounds Then hitch weight will increase to around 700 pounds. Do you have that much cargo carrying capacity left in your van once it is loaded with people and stuff? Probably not, but scales is the only way to know for sure.

RE: New trailer

Any RV parts store can sell you a new water heater. As for the black tank? Good luck! Poo piles are very hard to clean out. Connect it to your sewer clean out if you can, open the valve and using a broom handle down through the toilet and water try moving stuff around and flush it out. Keep at it until nothing it left in the tank. They do make a plastic wand that attaches to a garden hose that might help cleaning the black tank out.

RE: Sheared Lugs

Scale it. Get weights for each axle and each tire. That will tell you exactly where you stand. Sheared wheel studs usually indicate over torque situation.

RE: Requesting help on what to buy

Pick a floor plan you like. Keep your search to fivers under about 11,000 GVWR. Towing is not the issue, load carrying capacity is!

RE: Crater lake, Yosemite, Kings Canyon, Death Valley

Typically the Cascades and northern Sierras do not see snow until late November. But, many attractions close after Labor day, so if your plans include anything other than driving and taking pictures you could be a bit late

RE: GMs new 4 and 5 class with navistar.

RE: Washington State Residency

About any community of any size will have a UPS store where you can rent a PO box with a real address. There always available to foreword your stuff once in a while.

RE: Internet use

We go thru our Smart Phone with Verizon but you can run out of minutes if you use it for more than a few minutes per day. Data does NOT take up your talk minutes. Data is data, whether it is being used by your phone or a hot spot it is still data. Now if your implying that using your phone as a hot spot runs the battety down, then yes, that can be true. But thats what they make charge cords for.

RE: everyone, i need help with a truck/truck camper questions.

No matter how many claims mfgs like to talk about, the sad truth is real world load carrying capacity once you add your personal stuff, and more than one 150 pound occupant capacity drops like a rock. That holds true for any brand and any size truck. Get yourself a 2500 gas motor long bed truck, pick your light camper and go happy.

RE: EquaFlex Bushings

Keep the bronze bushings and grease blessed bolts.

RE: Screen Parts

Spring clips. Contact the window manufacturer and ask for some.

RE: OVen For Trailer

Our oven use is probably 5 to 1 oven over microwave. Small? Yes, but with proper prep works very well. Get a pizza stone or a couple of unglazed ceramic tiles, place in the oven. Once heated the oven will perform quite well.

RE: Hwy 22 in oregon to Hwy 20 to Bend or.

It your heading south, two better alternarives come to mind. 26 over MtHood or 58 out of Eugene, well actually a few miles south. 58 is a major highway east. Although I now use 22 exclusively when going east, it is not my favorite route. To me it seens to be a constant climb from Salem. In my 70 years I actually find 26 the best route out of Portland area to central Oregon.

RE: Newbie Truck and Trailer Shopping

You got it backwords. Pick the trailer first! People almost always under estimate loads and end up with too little in the tow vehicle department.

RE: how can I find info on the capacity of each grey tank?

Fill them and using a 5 gallon bucket drain each one recording the number of buckets full you drain out.

RE: CPAP machine and batteries

There are some machines that have a battery pack for those times. But they generally do not use a heater at those times. Most machines run from 120VAC, so your sort of limited. Most CPAP users tend to have an inverter wired into their RV to run their CPAP machine. But this depends a lot on the model you end up with. Some insurance will only cover certain models. Leaving you to buy a smallermore compact jnit for travel.

RE: is storing the TT (not travelling) slightly tongue-high ok?

Wont hurt anything. Actually better for water run off if you ask me.
