RE: CA Central Valley members?

Central Valley covers a lot of territory. Where are you at?

RE: Desert heat

Your refrig. will probably be far less able to handle the temp. Keep your drinks in an ice chest so you don't have to open the refrig. If temp. can't be kept low enough in refrig. transfer perishables to ice chest. Fans help to make you feel cooler while a/c is running. A/c can only do so much for an oven on wheels. The hotter it gets outside, the less it will cool the inside. Shade for refrig. side of trailer and a/c if possible. We live and camp in 100*+ temps. It's not like being in the mountains or on the coast. Prepare to be a little warmer than you probably would prefer.

RE: from La ,anahaim go grand canyon doubts

If you don't want to drive the 7 hrs. you could take I-40 and stop in Laughlin for the night. You would then enter the south entrance to the Grand Canyon. If you want to take I-15 (at least 1 extra hour) you could stop in Las Vegas and from there enter the north entrance.

RE: Who treats their diesel fuel?

10 years with Optilube and no problems. Older motors need the extra lubricity not found in ULSD fuel. Optilube XPD Might be all hype but I'm a believer....

RE: Receptacle Adapter HelP!!!

Follow Old-Biscuit's directions or have an electrician do it. You and the electrician should read this first! RV Electric

RE: Electric socket in slide

I did the same thing(using a heavy cord) to run an extra electric heater. Since it's direct to the post it doesn't flip my breaker if we have another one going. Beats using propane to run regular heater.

RE: Hard start capacitor

Adventure rv parts Hard start kit number 3310727.007 for 23 bucks And note it will void all warranties on the ac I believe it only voids the warranty in units starting with 6XXX in their model number. These units need part no. 3311883.000 the way I read it. But... then again..I could be wrong...:D

RE: Non Smoking Park

Wouldn't just be easier to stay home than try and legislate everyone else's behavior? hmmm....if everyone stayed home, then who would be at your park? People like me who are there to have a good time and not dictate what others may or may not do.

RE: Trailer disconnect message

Dielectric grease is actually a NON conductive grease. Best used to seal out moisture. Noalox might be a better choice. That's what I use on my plugs from the TT to the power post etc.

RE: Cal roads whyyyyy?

We can't be wasting money on roads...we're building a bullet train! Most of the road construction you do see is a re-alignment for the train right of way. Should be ready to roll by 2029...Our roads will be back to gravel by then!

RE: Water filters

We have a Surveyor also. The filter is very hard to access and I don't like having water sitting in the filter between outings. I bypassed mine and put a single canister filter inline. We filter for sediment. We don't drink the water, but I don't want junk clogging up my water lines or faucets. We drink bottled water from our home (filtered) faucet.

RE: Surveyor 264RKS

We have a 2012 SV264RKS. We are very happy with it. Love the rear kitchen and double entry doors. Glass door shower is very nice, much more room for my big butt. Wife says it is everything she needs in an RV and doesn't ever plan on changing. Feel free to PM me with any specific questions.

RE: Portable Surge Protector Question

I agree with Puttin. You want an EMS not just a surge protector. The linked P.I. EMS-PT50C can be found cheaper by using Google to shop for it.

RE: Cooking in the TT

When camping in 100* temperatures we cook outside to keep the heat out of the trailer. Any other time we cook whatever we want inside and use the oven as well.

RE: Are these legal as a subtitute/replacement?

My boat (30 ft. and heavier than my trailer) came with safety cables. I assume it is legal in every state. If it's legal in Calif. it must be legal everywhere ;). Now the fact that what you are looking at are extensions might make a difference. Maybe you could contact the mfg. and see what they say.

RE: About to buy a FR Surveyor 295BHS Appreciate Expert Advice!

We have a Surveyor SV264. I think you will be happy with your purchase. The following is just my opinion...others may have other thoughts. 1. Seems like a good price to me. 2. Don't think it will hurt resale. If it's enough room for you, don't worry about it. We're content with our "short slide". 3. 13.5 cools my SV264. 4. Don't know what kind of hitch or brake control you got but an Equalizer or Reese dual cam will run close to $450. A Prodigy brake control about $130. last time I looked. 5. No need for a 50amp cord if you have a 30 amp trailer. Save your money for a 50 to 30 amp pigtail adapter. Congrats on your purchase! Happy Camping!
