RE: Unusual tire wear

It sounds more like a front end alignment problems. Have it checked, realigned at a truck shop that specializes in alignment, frame and spring issues. If you have the same tires all around the RV, it would be time to have them rotated. Ken

RE: Well, They gone and done it

I'm another in the Do It Yourself category. Bought a set of clippers from Costco? about 20 yrs ago and just had to replace them last month, they got too dull. $30 for 20yrs of haircuts, at MY convience. Of course I don't have anything on the top, but use the second closest setting for the sides, almost shaved look. Very easy to get ready in the morning, towel dry no combing. I realize this isn't for everyone, but works for a lot of us. Ken

RE: Impact of Coronavirus on Parks?

Compared to hotels, RV camping is the much safer option. Think about it: Not only do you have your own private living space--used by no one else!--but your own cooking facilities, toilet and shower. No reason for campgrounds to close. x2 for these reasons, might even be busier when people realize it could be a better option for a vacation. I remember going to FL in March after 9-11. The campground we normally went to was never more than 75% occupied but that year it was completely booked for the month. Lucky for us the neigbouring campground was just reopened after being closed for a period of time. Ken

RE: Towing a 2003 F150 4X4 Behind a Class A - Will it work?

As Mike said, check your F150's owners manual for your specific vehicle/drive line. What does your F150 weigh? Yes the GVWR is 6500lb, but highly unlikely that you will be towing it fully loaded. As Mike says most gas A class MH have a tow limit of 5000. I have looked at diesel pushers and seen some (Winnebago Forza in particular) that also have a tow limit of 5000lbs. Ken

RE: Replace Dinette Set?

What is under the seats? On our previous trailer, the water tank, pump and plumbing took up all the space under one bench. Under the other was the furnace and some duct work and a small storage area. On that trailer, we wouldn't have gained very much floor space. In our current c-class, most of the space is available except for a fresh water tank in one corner, which could be worked around, maybe an end table. Of course I would have to relocate 12v and 120v wiring and plugs in each endwall. For resale, there are no rules saying that you have to put it back to factory specs. You may find people would rather have a dinnette or someone that loves your mod. Ken

RE: Towing issues with short wheel base motorhome

If your are towing 4 down, disconnect the toad, but leave the tow bar in the MH receiver and then try to move the tow bar side to side. If there is any side to side movement (slop) even a 1/16" that will be magnified by the time it gets to the point were the tow bar is attached to the car. We had this problem when we first started towing 4 down. The problem was resolved by taking the slop out of the hitch point. There a different ways to fix. some have had a bead of weld put on the draw bar, personally I wedged in a couple of washers and then used a hitch quiet. Now the car is stable back there. Ken

RE: Dog travel...USA to Canada

Check with Border Services, both Canada and U.S. for their requirements, probably rabies and health statements. Even if the requirements are there, the agent letting you in may ask for them or may not. If you have the required paperwork, no problem, if you don't have it and find out you need it , oh oh. If you see the vet regularly, you may already have it. On my yearly visit, they give me a statement, that includes the rabies vaccine, and any other pertinent information, healthy or other things done. And of course, the bottom line $$$. Your 4 legged family member, returning to the U.S. is treated the same as mine, going for a visit. Ken

RE: E450 Insulated RV Windshield Cover

I've never one one. What I would do is cut reflex insulation to fit under the custom windshield, side window cover. I'm not sure how much extra insulation that it would provide. I use the reflex, inside as the usual camping covers for privacy, easily removed for visibility during the day. We used them once in minus 20s temp, but the condensation on the windshield was bad, the reflex was on the inside, we have since learned how to deal with the condensation issue. Ken

RE: toad versus no toad

All I can do is agree with everyone else. Take the toad. Never had an issue getting gas, if it looks tight, stop on shoulder before committing. Go to next gas station if you feel uncomfortable at the first. Also start looking for gas when the guage reaches 1/2. Extra fuel used, minimal, convenience with toad, priceless. Ken

RE: Old 1972 DC light bulb

ok, Ill toss in trash then. I thought it would blow if put in a 120 If it is a 12 volt bulb, regular screw in base and you put it in a 120 volt lamp, it will work for about a milli-second, then you will throw it in the trash. Ken

RE: "Single Drop"

My thoughts are a single RV or camping unit on the site. Not just your TT and a second unit, second trailer or big sleeping tent. Ken

RE: Who is responsible for discounts?

Yes, the campers responsibility to ask. You have done your part by advertising what discounts are available. Maybe add a a laminated paper at the check in desk titled 'Do you qualify for any of the discounts'. .... .... .... Discounts are applied only at time of check-in. You would probably ask as a courtesy, but your new employee, with a line of campers waiting to check in may forget. Onus on the customer. Showing regular rates. No doubt your computer/cash register would show regular rate - minus GS or? Discount. Yes a sheet or chart showing the regular rates, but how complicated would it. E to read. Basic site, deluxe, premium, ++. Then water and electric or Full Hook-up, Full Hook-up plus 50 amp. And then days of the week, I'm sure most places, regular rates are more on Friday and Saturday nights. And then holiday long weekends. Ken

RE: Issues with Tow/Haul mode

On my 06, the TowHaul mode is normally off, NO light on gear shift. Even if I've been using TowHaul mode and shut the ignition off, when restarted, the light and TH mode will be off. TowHaul has to be turned on manually everytime the engine is started (If you want it on). Maybe Cruise America has had them reprogrammed. A little misnomer for the C-class, you may not be towing, but you are hauling near GVWR (14500lbs) and with the aerodynamics of a brick, even worse. I've found having the TH mode turned on does help with the transmission not hunting for gears on grades. VERY HELPFUL on downgrades with engine/transmission braking. The first time we took the MH out, the transmission/engine went to 4000 plus rpms held until the grade leveled out. I checked with the Ford dealer and he said that it was normal operation, no worries. Ken

RE: Anyone seen one of these?

I've seen similar one at the RV shows. Combination cargo trailer, tent on wheels and sleeping above the ground. Ken

RE: Using RV in winter, including water

You may be able to keep the fresh water system from freezing, depending on location of the fresh water tank and associated plumbing. What about the other hookups, electric to keep the batteries charged and operating furnance (blower), propane, depending on temps and wind, you may use 20 lbs a day. And finally, gray and black holding tanks, Heated? Heated dump valves? and a place to dump? Is it possible to use the RV for sleeping accomodations without using any water related uses. Ken

RE: Question, Securing TC to the truck

Thanks for the comments, I thought that there should have been more than gravity holding it in. Actually a neighbour came up to me and thought he should have called the police, unsafe, unsecured load. I haven't seen or heard anything more about them, no newsworthy accidents, good thing for other users of the roads. Ken

RE: Question, Securing TC to the truck

That actually looks like the camper I was talking about. There was no visible hold downs at the front and virtually no space between the camper and bed rails. Ken

RE: dealer advertising

I would ignore it completely, at least 3 huge variables there, down payment, interest rate and length of term, 5, 10 20 years, and or 20 year but renewable after xx years at a higher interest rate. I would start looking at the asking price (which is Negotiable). Before signing, commiting to buy, shop for financing, start with your own financial institution to see what is affordable and the best deal for the money. Yes, the RV dealers will do that as well. Maybe you can get more RV for the same money, or the same RV for less money.

Question, Securing TC to the truck

How are TCs secured to the truck for travelling. Had an acquaintance come by the other, basically looking for a place to 'park', squat, freeload, mooch, whatever you want to call it. They were not happy when I told them to leave after one night. The truck has seen better days, but the camper ugh. The only hold downs that I could see were ratchet straps, criss crossed from the rear leg brackets under the tailgate to the opposite corner of the truck bumper. These straps were the same quality as I use to secure my bicycle to the the bike rack on my MH, maybe rated rated for 500lbs. Maybe I'm asking a redundant question, but shouldn't there be something more secure to hold the camper on, especially at highway speeds? I'm a MH type person and have very very limited exposure to TC. Thanks Ken
