RE: New laptop--- clone hard drive?

Probably. Does the refurbished laptop have the same HD, Video card, NIC, etc? What is different? If anything is different it might present different issues, based on driver compatibility.

RE: Leveling Jack Pads/Slide Out Supports

Jack pads, yes. Slide supports, no. For slides, I believe the mfgr says no to those.

RE: Do you always need an RV Park ? .....

OP, Do what you feel is right for you. As someone above said, that is why we have choices. When our destination is more important than the journey, we use Walmart, Cracker Barrel, Truck stop, rest areas, etc. You do you.

RE: Barker Automatic valve openers

Do they come with a remote control so you can dump the tanks while rolling down the interstate :@ They do, but only works here in PA ! ?? Dave Matthews would disagree with you!

RE: House battery charging options

Your test is a good idea but take into consideration that if you run the furnace and fridge during the day, the furnace and/or fridge may not run as often as during a cool/cold night. Many places have quiet hours 10-6 or longer. You will likely find that a single 12v (wet) battery will likely not get you through the night. I think the suggested 6v GC is a good consideration. Another consideration might be multiple lithium. You get to use most of the AH in them, say down to 5-10%.

RE: Spouse left behind after death at a Campsite, what to do?

Due to my precarious situation and high-risk life style (I frequently sass my wife and 'forget' to do assigned tasks) my wife early on made sure she was capable of doing everything necessary to break down camp and get home by herself. In fact I have come back to the camp from taking a solo hike to find that she decided to run a drill and had left. So, as regards the RV portion, she is well trained and able. In regards to disposition of my body, once again, planning ahead pays dividends. She bought an extra-large gas propane fire pit. Her plan, she tells me, is to simply cremate me on the spot. She did, however, give me some input on her plan. She has agreed to spread my ashes on the floor of our local Eddie Bauer outlet store. This way I know she will come frequently to visit me.:B

RE: Touchy subject - proper toilet paper for black tank

Get 100 grain but 220 grain is better.:B TP is TP. X2 Use what ever you use at home. I use Charmin, it does not disintegrate like the over hyped RV toilet paper. And it never causes any problem with the black tank. It is a holding tank. We have had septic for over 20 years and I grew up on septic. We use/used what was nice on our bums.

RE: Spouse left behind after death at a Campsite, what to do?

And what may I ask is a RED? In my world RED is a rear engine dragster!!! Sorry! We have a Tiffin, Allegro RED, 37BA.

RE: Spouse left behind after death at a Campsite, what to do?

campersam9, Yes!! So well said. The wife knows how to do everything, including driving the RED. On long trips to see folks, she and I switch off driving. When I was working and traveling for work she took the rig, with our camping group and went camping. If I were to break something, she could get us, including the RED, home.

RE: Motor coach with bunks recommendations for family

As long as it is used the way you state there is no issue with buying a DP. The problems come from when it sits unused for months on end. I’m not talking storage, but just unused which is when the problems creep up. ^^^ What dodge guy said. You are only 4 years out from retirement. On top of that, buy what you want for retirement.

RE: Motor coach with bunks recommendations for family

I won't argue that the diesel definitely has its advantages, not the least of which is how quiet it is being in the back. However, things changed a bit when Ford came out with the new F53 chassis and 7.3L big block V8 a year or so ago. Before plunking down the $100k or more extra it costs for a diesel pusher.....One really owes it to themselves to test drive a gasser motorhome built on the newer F53 chassis with the 7.3 gas big block V8 and improved suspension setup. It is a significant improvement over the old V10 chassis, and definitely closed the gap some with the diesel pushers. Engine is quieter, and body roll is noticeably less. Having owned, driven a Georgetown built on a 2012 F53 V10 chassis for 9 years, and now own a 2021 Newmar built on the new F53 chassis....I'm here to tell you there is a huge difference, and Ford has come a long way. Exactly why I said that it depends on their type of travel. I agree that the newer Tiffins are better built, well insulated and the chassis rides nice. Worth the consideration. What I did not talk about is floorplan. That is one of the first things we looked at when deciding on any coach, as well as how well it was organized and made.

RE: Motor coach with bunks recommendations for family

Tiffin Allegro Open Road 35QBA & 36UA. Yes we have been looking at those too. Is it worth it to buy the 38qba with the diesel if I can get a used one for almost the same price??? Let me first state that we have owned a 2013 Open Road 36LA and now a 2019 RED 37BA. Both have their advantages and IMO which is best is up to how you use it. The Open Road, with the V10 is a beast and gets 7 mpg. Great for the lower cost. The RED is a 360 so it gets up the mountain but some down to 50mph. It gets about 9 mpg. We went to the RED, as it is our retirement rig. We believe we should have gone to it earlier. Reason is, we will be traveling more and wanted the quieter front end. It is a much smoother ride and handles curves and corners better. It has air ride. The exhaust break and 6 speed Allison is great in the mountains. One of the problems of the RED is that it has 2 15kw AC with heat pump and 1 13.5kw AC. While this sounds good, this almost mandates a 50amp shore power connection, as 30 amp will not run 2 of the AC. We have an 8kw gennie and that will run 2 AC. I can not say that diesel is better, without the details of year and packages. If things were equal, I would lean to the diesel. Good luck in your research.

RE: Low mileage V10s

The last 2 V10s we had were beasts. The last we had had computer controlled, well, everything. You could not rev it beyond it's capability. When we lost all coolant, the engine went immediately into limp mode, so we could get off the interstate. It had a lot of power, also, without a Banks, which we did put on the first v10. I would agree with the OP that the oil needs changed more than on mileage. We changed ours annually or 5k miles, whichever came first.

RE: AC Water on top of RV

You can use your auto level and then do a small extend/correction. You can also use a bead of dicor to direct the flow.
