Snowbirds?

I have been getting an error each time I try to access the snowbirds sub forum. Is it still active or has it been shut down?

US Cellular?

Has anyone had experience with cell phone service for US Cellular? Particularly in the Yuma, Az. area? Tried to post this on the Snowbirds page, but it is currently out of commission!

RE: Tire Pressure Gauge

I wound up getting a Milton Industries Exelair digital dual head pressure gauge. It has a long shank that allows you to read it without stooping too closely and the handle swivels to give youthe best view. Seems to operate well. Time will tell. Thanks to all who offered advice.

Tire Pressure Gauge

After going through many inferior gauges, I have decided I need a good one---even if I have to spend a few dollars. Does anyone have experience with high quality gauges they are willing to share? Tnx.

RE: Hubodometer

After doing a bit more research, I have decided that they weren't meant for us smaller guys. You have to specify the make and model of the tire and look up which model to purchase. The info isn't rhat easy to find, but after doing the lookup I discovered that my Goodyear Endurance T205/75 R15's aren't on the list. Would include the link to the data, but I've forgotten where it is. Sorry!:S

Hubodometer

I have been thinking of something to record the milage I put on my trailer tires. Just ran across something called a "hub odometer." Has anyone had experience with it---or any advice about other devices? Thanks.

Towstar STR Tires?

Has anyone had experience with these tires? Got a quote from Les Shwab for $396 for four. I've had good luck with Les Shwab in the past, but never heard of these tires, Help?

Antiglare Visors?

Just noticed a tv ad for an antiglare visor that clips on the the existing visor. Has anyone had experience with these? Do they work?

RE: Leaking Gray Water Valve

... If the valve is the leak then I would replace the entire valve since they are not very expensive. Just make sure you buy a gray tank valve and not a black tank valve as the sizes are different.I replaced the gray and black valves on my Fuzion. They were identical. Not a big deal. Did you have to remove a belly pan? If so, do you have comments on the procedure?

RE: Leaking Gray Water Valve

You are correct in that the tank is held on by either straps or brackets about the edge. The tank is not help up by the plastic underbelly. Drain the tank well. Pull all the screws and drop the underbelly. Once the pan is down you should be able to see what is leaking and address it from there. If the leak is a broken or cracked pipe it will be standard 3 inch ABS black pipe that you can get at Home Depot. Just cut out the broken section and glue a new piece in. If the valve is the leak then I would replace the entire valve since they are not very expensive. Just make sure you buy a gray tank valve and not a black tank valve as the sizes are different. Many thanks. Just the info I was looking for!

RE: Anyone use a TPMS for their trailer?

Well, no one is OBLIGATED to respond, and sometimes it is useful to drag old topics from the dustbin and find out if there is anything new. Just my two farthings. We use the TST system and have found it to be good. Their tech support is great. But one problem has surfaced after years of running them. One of my sensors creates a slow leak. It is not easy to know how hard to tighten them, and the o-ring deals come loose.

RE: Leaking Gray Water Valve

Tilt the rig for maximum drain, flush and drain completely. Tilt the rig in the opposite direction and replace the valve. Replace all valves. I decided to replace the seals only and purchased seals. But could not clean the black tank slider to like new condition. Lesson learned - Buy new valves - period - Who wants to replace the valves a second time? Thanks, Great info. But what about removing the belly pan?

Leaking Gray Water Valve

Our Arctic Fox 22GQ has separate belly pans for fresh, gray, and black water tanks. I have just noticed a leak (a pretty good one) coming from one corner of the gray tank pan. It only flows when I open the valve. I suppose I have to drop the belly pan to see what's going on. Can someone tell me what to expect when I do---other than wet, stinky insulation? I assume that the tank is attached to the frame with straps or bolts and is not supported by the belly pan itself. Is this correct? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

RE: Stove Burner Issue

Thanks all. Sorry I forgot to say, but as some of you surmised, it is a propane stove. Yes, two back burners are on-off and front (the large one) is adjustable. Checks with what the manual says, but my gosh! it would seem so easy for the mfr to make them all adjustable. I guess my question is whether or not I could simply replace the back burners with adjustable ones. I guess I can contact the mfr, but I have often found this resourceful bunch can come up with solutions which seem to elude the manufacturer! No manufacturer is going to condone replacing the valves with a different style not approved and designed for the particular appliance, regardless of whether it works safely or not. As a practical matter, on the stoves that I've seen, the difference between the front and back burners is usually just the control valve; the burner proper is the same (though the back ones do of course have longer supply tubes). Replacing the back control valves with ones intended for the front burner would in theory make them adjustable as well, but it also would mean the back burners give a higher maximum output and thereby may pose a fire hazard as they are closer to countertops and walls and other combustible surfaces than the front middle burner. I'd live with setting the control between off and high, or replace the stove if you have a lot of excess cash sitting around that you would rather not have cluttering up the space. Certainly makes sense, but I am left asking why aren't low output burners also adjustable? Its not that we want higher output, just the ability to control the flame, But I can clearly see that the consensus is to just hunker down and put up with the problem! Nuff said!

Stove Burner Issue

My wife complains that our Magic Chef burners are full on or full off, no adjustment in between! Are there any practical solutions short of replacing the stove?

Valley of Fire Area

We will be traveling through Las Vegas near the end of June and want to see Valley of Fire. We will devote two nights and one complete day to it. Does anyone have recommendations for rv spots? Due to expected heat we don't want to stray off into the boondocks, but have power for the ac. So---I think we want a private park. I think the state park has nice campgrounds, but first come first served makes me think we can't depend on getting a site. But---near the end of June? All suggestions and comments will be appreciated. Thanks.

Caulk Cleaner?

The caulking along the seams on my travel railer is getting pretty black, and therefore the rig is beginning to look a bit seedy. Can anyone recommend a caulk cleaner? Thanks.

RE: Bike Hauling Question

Shoot, if it's that cheap of a bike, just sell it on Craigslist and buy another when you get home. Otherwise put it inside. Not that big of a deal unless it's a three wheeler. Without some kind of bike carrier it's going to get pretty beat up, both the bike and the trailer. Thanks, Howard, but it is a pretty expensive bike!
