RE: RV toilet paper

I have a septic tank at home. We use whatever brand of toilet paper is on sale at Publix. After 47 years and two kids in the same house my tank has had to be pumped twice for accumulated solids. I do not have a garbage disposer in my sinks and we do not discharge the clothes washer into the tank (grey water dry well). Again! Toilet paper is NOT a problem.

RE: When replacing tow vehicle, do you.....

Never heard of illegal; but then "dealers is dealers!". I bought my current truck used and it had rails in it, so I left the rails in the old one when I passed it to my son. He uses a Reese goose-neck adapter on the rails to pull his construction dump trailers.

RE: RV toilet paper

You do not have a septic system that processes waste! The RV has a HOLDING tank. Toilet paper brand and type is of absolutely NO importance and has NO impact on how a holding tank works or doesn't work. Plenty of water and frequent emptying and flushing with plenty of clean water ARE important. Yes, my degree IS in Civil and Sanitary Engineering. A long time ago, maybe, but poop is still poop. A

RE: rv registration

I would think (based on Florida experience) GA. I would call or e-mail the State Vehicle Registration office and ask them. They live there, I don't.

RE: proper hook up procedure?

Large, heavy, rubber chocks from Northern Tool, not Harbor Freight or Walmart cheapies. ON EDIT: Camping World also has some useless ones.

RE: Front landing gear broke

I was about to post that it sounds like a shear pin or bolt. (Not "sheet", the parts man won't know what you need.) Pop the top off of the leg. If the crown gear turns when you hit the switch, but the leg doesn't move, dig around in the grease and find a pin (or broken parts of a pin) about 1/8" diameter and an inch long. There is a hole through the gear and a matching hole in the top of the lead screw. The pin locks the two together. The pin is usually broken when the landing gear is run too far up or down. The system can, however, keep working for some time until all of the parts work their way out of the holes and everything fails. Good luck.

RE: Short Beds w/out Sliding Hitch

GaryP, My son has a Dodge quad-cab with that same dent. They must install them at the factory on short beds! They are an extra cost option for my long bed Chevy. A

RE: Flashlight

Another vote for Harbor Freight freebies. If you drop one out of the truck or into a river you just get out another one. We have 5 or 6 of them.

RE: Yellowstone glacier NP with no reservations

Not until October and by then it is likely to be snowing. BTDT!!

RE: Jacking up a Fifth Wheel

When I switched out my axles, I used 4x4 fence post cut down to 12 or 18 inch pieces for the cribbing.

RE: Basic 5th wheel towing questions.

Also keep in mind that to keep a 27 foot fiver under 9,000 pounds loaded (dry weight means nothing) some compromises in quality of fittings (cabinets, furniture, etc) will have been required. While not absolutely true in EVERY case, light weight like low cost doesn't necessarily mean value.

RE: Securing batteries in forward compartment (Security)

Why would anyone think your battery(ies) were more worth stealing than my one Auto-Zone marine deep cycle??? Is there a history of battery theft at this park? Don't call attention to it. Lock it up and go home. (You DO have insurance, don't you?)

RE: Opinion on Resort Fees ?

Not only avoid them to the point of walking out during registering, but post on RV Park Reviews to warn others.

RE: 6 foot wide pleated blind help

Once installed, it has to have a lot more tension on the bottom of the cords than you would expect. They have to be "guy-wire" tight. Good crisp pleats help, but it should work. What exactly is it doing (or NOT doing)? Won't go up. Won't stay up. Goes up unevenly. One of us will figure it out sooner or later!

RE: Tool Box

If you search for tool "chest" rather than tool "box" you will find the ones that fit entirely down below the rails. No "wings" raising it above the truck box. I first bought a winged version and it made visibility from the driver's seat a real problem. Luckily my son could use that one and a chest down in the bed made things better. Still some sightlines blocked, but much better. Also, you can fit a soft tonneau cover over a chest. Not so with a winged box.

RE: 6 foot wide pleated blind help

My wife and I restrung our 6'-3" rear day/night. One spring. two packs of cord required to be sure you have plenty. Keep the pleats clamped together while working. Followed the U-Tube. Just jump in and do it!

RE: 3500 truck towing HT 5th wheel - Workable?

That 3500 will pull your house off of the foundation if you have enough chain. Limit your search to GVW under 14,000 pounds and have fun.

RE: Late model truck for hauling a 5th wheel.

Oh Six and a half LBZ.

RE: 50amp surge protector ?

Also P.I. I had a mechanical failure in the output socket on the first one I bought (after about 10 months) and P.I. replaced the entire unit with a new one in about three days. Outstanding service. A
