RE: How to deal with grease on ball of receiver

I have used a tennis ball, just cut a hole large enough to slip over the ball. Another option is that people have used wax paper instead of grease on the ball something I have never tried.

RE: New to the RV World - Towing Mirrors Recommendation

I have used Mckesh from Hensley Mfg. and with the optional convex mirrors have enhanced visibility to the rear 10 fold. They do not vibrate, etc. when installed properly. Our next tow vehicle will be ordered with the factory tow mirrors.

RE: Beatty, NV to Furnace Creek

Thanks Art. Good info. Not going til Nov. Nov. is usually a good time to visit DV. Heading to the 49ers Encampment Nov. 4-10 by any chance? The only other reasonable route is 95->373->190. That route is mostly flat or gentle downhill, but twice as long. Art Easier drive (95>373>190) and being shorter with less grades.

RE: Which Stand-alone GPS system to purchase?

We have a Garmin 2797LMT (Free Lifetime Maps & Traffic) which we have had for quite a few years and its one of 3 mapping sources we use for navigating. In addition to the Garmin we use google map and a current hard cover map.

RE: Entry Door Rebuild

Fallsrider, The pictures did no come thru. I don't know what happened. They showed up on my desktop where I created the post, but they didn't show up later on my phone. I posted them to another hosting site. Hope they show up now. Pictures are showing now, by looking at the pictures I don't believe you will have any further issues with the door. I would follow up with the suggestion from DUANE4238 for sealing around the window just to eliminate any possible leaks.

RE: Entry Door Rebuild

Keep us posted on your findings and solution. We have the Monsoons now, been having a lot of thunder but very little rain which is making it humid which is a rarity here in Arizona.

RE: Entry Door Rebuild

I just checked YouTube and am surprised at the number of videos on this same subject. I don't recall that many when I did mine but it has been some time ago. YouTube sure has a lot of good information available along with many informative videos.

RE: Entry Door Rebuild

You know, it's very possible that's what I will find. There may be a perimeter frame made out of wood, and then foam board in the middle for weight savings. If so, that wouldn't be too much trouble to rebuild. Thanks for letting me know your experience. You refreshed my mind, I do recall foam board in between the wood framing. :)

RE: Entry Door Rebuild

On a 1995 Prowler we had I rebuilt the door frame. As I recall when I took it apart I found a 2x2 wood outer frame with some 2x2 cross bracing all put together with staples which were rusted and the wood rotted. What I did was replace the bad wood and placed some metal 'L' brackets in the 4 corners to give it support along with some metal brackets to support the cross bracing (no staples). It never gave me any more problems. Hope this helps.

RE: Storing in shop/garage - config, utils, connections, etc.?

We built our RV garage some 5 years ago and overall have been very satisfied with the finished product. Our is nowhere near the size you are planning as our was a drive thru 24 x 36 garage. I have noted in RED some items to consider. - It is going to be metal building about 65 deep by 42 wide in back yard behind fence. Will probably change from RV gate to large sliding gate or maybe just add another RV gate. - Two 16' wide by 14' tall doors - Concrete floor and driveway - Air conditioned is not in the budget so will have to do without. Being in Arizona (Phoenix) you may want to reconsider A/C. as it will be cheaper to install it during construction than later. Some thoughts/questions: - The 65' deep is so can keep truck attached or have rear door access even with a '43ft rig. This barely fits in yard depth wise so open to other configuration or wider rather than deep if have not found the extra length useful. - Will have it wired up for 50A and for a welder if ever get into that along with other 110V outlets. Lights too. Not sure of anything specific to consider.Consider both 110/220 and add outlets for future needs. You never have enough outlets. - Does an area for working, welding, etc. really best to be separate with walls or do curtains, etc. work well to keep the rest of garage fairly clean? we dont have a separate area. overall the garage stays relatively clean even when I have other projects going on. - What about RV dump? Just do it to street in front of house? I am on septic. Shop will be downhill of septic so would have to do pump to push up hill if run it to the shop. Not sure if practical to run it into shop so could keep in shop for guests etc. plugged in. - In general does it make sense to have rig in shop for guests or really need to pull it out so not in enclosed building (can always open big doors too) We have had guests stay in the RV while in the garage as well as have used it when out of garage. - Not sure how much will miss water if don't run it or just do a single connection from garden hose from house or similar. We have a water source within 30' of garage so did not add a new line. - Anyone ever put solar on roof of metal building? Thinking of adding solar to house anyways so not sure if on shop would be better alternative or just do on the house. Thanks for any input as trying to get it right first time but also on a budget ... A requirement when we built ours was to be able to have all slides open and awing open when in garage. In addition room for both truck & trailer. Consider Air lines placed throughout so you have access to compressed air for the shop. Consider drains so when washing indoors water has a place to go. This is my 2cents worth and i'm sure others will chime in with their recommendations. :)

RE: Help finding Roadside assistance & benefit plan for me

May I suggest Coach Net We have this coverage for when we or a family member is on the road just in case of emergencies. In addition they offer Assist America at no extra cost which will return your vehicle home should you become unable to drive. I do have this coverage should an emergency arise but thankfully I have not had a need to use it, it does give me peace of mind. :)

RE: Jalama Beach County Park In California

I would be more concerned pulling a 27' TT on Jalama Road from Hwy 1 into Jalama. You may want to check this more closely. :E :h

RE: Found and fixed a slow propane leak: lessons learned . . .

You went to great extreme to isolate the leak and saved having to take it to a shop. I will take note of your approach for finding the leak should I ever need it. Thank for finding the time to document your methodical approach and sharing it with fellow RV's.
