RE: 2007 dodge

Likely a 3.42 rear end ratio. Nothing you have is really suitable for towing. Personally I would not consider anything more than a tent trailer or a smaller hybrid.

RE: directv occasional use

Read recently that Direct now offers a month to month plan like Dish. If you have Direct at home, why not simply take the receiver from home and avoid paying for an extra receiver?

RE: New to dry camping

Battery is going to be your biggest concern. Conservation is the key. Do not leave lights on more than necesary. We used to fill our water tank all the time using a 5 gallon water jug. We took showers every day. Dumping gray water will be your second big concern. If there is a place to dispose of gray water, its no big deal. Either a 5 gallon bucket or one of the tote tanks work well. I always made it part of my morning routine to fill the potable water and dump the gray each morning. Depending on age/type/condition of your batteries you should get one day per battery easily.

RE: Best TT for retired couple looking to travel

They will want a really light trailer, maybe a hybrid, or something like an Rpod should work OK.

RE: help with external dish and R6 cable routing

You have me really confused? You have satellite, yet you want to connect your satellite box to the park cable service? Is that right???? Cant be done! Cable is totally different from satellite service. To connect to the park cable, you might need a cable box from the park office, or possibly you can simply connect to the cable in on your RV and connect a short coax from cable port behind your TV to the coax in port on your TV.

RE: Pops breaker

Start checking for loose connections of wires that mice might have chewed.

RE: New Winegard antenna is it worth it

To be honest, in 10 years I have never raised my TV antenna. Just a waste to me. It would already be in the junk except for the hole in the roof.

RE: fridge

RE: satellite ??

Why buy either when for about 175 dollars you can get a complete setup for HD

RE: 1986 30P Avion trailer Electrical Problem

Fuses see Amps, not Volts. Blowing fuse means high Amperage draw on the circuit it is protecting unplug the refer 12 volt and try again. You could have a frayed wire or a dead control board.

RE: best route to portland oregon from lake tahoe ca.

395 north to Lakeview, 31 NW to LaPine,97 north to Madras, 26 over the mountain. Fast, easy drive, not a lot of traffic during the week. Option is at Alturis NW to Klamath Falls and then 97 north. But I like the drive on 31. Beautiful interesting country.

RE: Looking for a "plain" 5th wheel

I'm familiar with Forest River and Thor, but not Northwood. I'll search those more thoroughly. Northwood is a regional manufacturer based in LaGrande Oregon. Ron started building trailers around 1999 out of an old fleetwood plant. They build their own frames, and a reputation for durable quality product at decent prices. Thunder RV in LaGrande is the closest dealer to the factory and offer competetive prices.

RE: Stove/oven in travel trailer

Google gas match.

RE: Towing Problem - Steering Pulling

To bar not pulling the car straight down the road. Get someone to follow you to confirm that the car is crawling to one side.

RE: Stove/oven in travel trailer

When changing tanks, or when propane has been off for a while, turn the gas on. Go inside and turn a burner on. Using a gas match try lighting the burner. It can take up to a minute for gas flow. Let it burn for a minute. Turn off. At that point you should be able to light the refer, water heater and oven. Ovens can still take a couple minutes for gas to get to the pilot orifice. Again a good gas match works wonders.

RE: Looking for a "plain" 5th wheel

Both Forest River and Thor offer a lot of different models in prices all over the spectrum. Living next door to a FR factory and having owned one for 10 years I personally favor FR products. If you have a chance, also look at Northwood Mfg products. Lots more durable that the competition for the dollar.

RE: 2007 chevy vs 9500lb 5th wheel

9500 dry or gross? Makes a big difference you know!

RE: Need suggestions on 2-3 week trip to NW without reservations

There are tons of NF campgrounds throughout OR/WA that are not on the reservation system. Start looking east of the Cascades and preferably east of hwy97
