RE: Black Water Valve Will Not Close

Remove four bolts and replace valve. X3. The good news is the tank is empty and you have all winter to fix it.

RE: Recreation.gov

Defeated Creek COE park is one of my favorite places. Full hookup lakefront sites. About an hour east of Nashville.

RE: Does the State of TN title truck campers?

As of June 2019, TN had not yet adopted electronic titles. I am not aware that they have since. In my experience selling travel trailers and motor homes in TN, if there is a lien holder they hold the physical title. However, there may be a separate department at the bank that maintains them, and when you talk to loan services they may or may not be fully aware because most states have adopted the electronic titles. I would first contact Bank of the West again and tell them your state does not have electronic titles, and you want to ensure they don’t have the title anywhere, or that they aren’t in process of releasing it. In 2019 I paid off a loan with BB&T. They sent a payoff letter fairly quickly, but it took 3 weeks for them to mail the title to me. Alternatively go back to the county clerk. It is concerning that they could not find it. Was the camper registered in their system? I’ve not owned a truck camper in TN so don’t know whether registration is required (although the link above seems to indicate it is). If the county can’t find it, is it possible to go back to the selling dealer and ask them to check their records on the titling documentation? Maybe they have some record of what was sent to TN when you purchased it. Good luck. I know this can be frustrating.

RE: Been a busy year

Great read! I’m tired now from reading about all of those adventures.

RE: Where to in June

Land Between the Lakes in TN/KY is nice. Federal land, lakes and recreation opportunities, hiking etc. Not too far from you either.

RE: New Class A Winnebago owners

I previously had a 2007 Sightseer, and enjoyed the thorough information and schematics available on the Winnebago website. I assume they are still available back to 2008 at this point. Also called customer service a few times with questions and they were very helpful. So don’t be afraid to utilize those resources even though your rig is 13 years old.

RE: Mask use in Mexico Right Now-It's IMPORTANT!

I was talking to an anti masker who told me some things about covid that did not seem to be true. I said i would Google it and he said no you will not find it with Google. So i asked what his source was and he said " word of mouth" Bottom line is that you will never convince an anti masker anti vaxer of anything as they grab hold of any unfact checked info they can get their hands on that allows them to justify living irresponsibly during the pandemic. They will not listen to facts that will inconvenience their lifestyle. Talk about a 2 way street lol. Don’t bother. Anyone who gets their information through Google doesn’t want access to unfiltered info. They just want to be spoon fed propaganda that fits their beliefs. Probably uses Facebook too.

RE: Motor coach with bunks recommendations for family

Thank you all for the info! I did notice that the THOR AcE reviews were not good at all. The last thing I want is for it to be in the shop all the time! So it seems that the general consensus is that the Winnebagos are the best quality for the money? Any other brands you recommend? I would say Winnebago and perhaps Georgetown only because Tiffin and Newmar don't seem to offer much in the way of bunk floorplans. Thor owns Tiffin now and Winnie owns Newmar anyway. Like Thor, I would probably pass over Coachmen and Jayco, but that's just my opinion. Winnie makes a pretty decent coach in terms of quality and fit and finish. Thor does have many other offerings besides the ACE. However even moving up the ladder to their mid tier offerings, I still find the quality sub-par to Winnie. But as with most things, you get what you pay for. The ACE and most other Thors are cheaper than other brands, so it goes back to how much and what you will use it for. Maybe you want to save some coin and get a cheaper RV. That's why there is a market for them. After all of the comments, I'm leaning towards winnebagos or even the georgetown; and am even looking at higher end models now like Newmars. From what it sounds liek though, I'd be better off even buying a 10 year old NEWMAR than brand new cheaper/lower build quality models. Is that a true statement? Seems like I could always upgrade different items on the interior to make it feel newer? THANKS AGAIN for all the input! IF you can find a clean used unit that has been properly maintained, then I'd agree you might get better quality going with something built before the last several years. Carefully ensure the roof and seams have been maintained, and that there has been no water intrusion, delamination, etc. Also ask to see maintenance records for the drivetrain/chassis, and ensure the tires, even if tread looks good, aren't too old (less than 5 years ideally) by checking the DOT codes on the sidewalls. If the maintenance checks out, then upgrading outdated decor can actually be enjoyable, and you will get something of good quality that is personalized to your tastes.

RE: Motor coach with bunks recommendations for family

Many manufacturers of gas class A motorhomes have offered models with bunk floorplans over the past 10-15 years. Take a look at the Winnebago Vista 35B. It’s nice in that it has a bath and a half. Your daughters are getting to an age where you will appreciate that. There are usually used ones available well within your price range.

RE: Fall Creek Falls, Tennessee

I think you’ll want to come up TN 111 and enter the park through the South entrance. I came in through the north entrance once and the road was very hilly and curvy. South entrance is a much easier drive.

RE: Can I rent your RV?

Politely say no, with the excuse that your insurance coverage won't allow it, and suggest she check out Outdoorsy.com (or a similar site) to rent one.

RE: When to throw in the towel...

Quite a few years ago we were on a weekend trip to a state park to do some hiking, and it poured pretty much non-stop. My wife indicated we should just call it and head home, but I dug in and said "it's nice just being away from home, we can hang out and play games, etc etc.". Well, with the kids bored, and 6 of us crammed in the trailer, it was more misery than fun. But we stayed. And I can't tell you how many times in the years since my wife has mentioned "remember that time....". LOL. So the moral of the story is, you made the right call.

RE: Opinions on flat towing a jeep grand cherokee

You might want to post this in the Dinghy Towing forum. I could be mistaken but I think this forum is for vehicles that do the towing, as opposed to “Towed” vehicles. Hopefully you’ll get assistance with your question either way but you might have better luck there. Or possibly a moderator can move it.

RE: "Maybe 550 is not so bad, after all . . . "

On the bright side, he had a campsite with a spectacular view for a week.

RE: Want your opinion

If your current trailer is 16 years old, that puts its construction pre-2008 great recession. It's at that point, IMO, that build quality in RV's took the first big hit. Then more recently it seems to have declined further, based on anecdotal evidence at least. You could spend $63k on a new unit, then additional money to personalize it, and end up with a nightmare of dubious construction issues, leaks, and who knows what else. If it were me, with the seasonal situation you laid out, I'd stick with what I know, which considering how it seems to have held up was built fairly well.

RE: Trip Report: Our Southwest Excursion

I love RV travel blogs. Glad you shared it. We took a long trip with our kids 12 years ago that I blogged about so family could follow along. I still enjoy going back to read it...good memories. I’m sure you’ll do the same many years down the road. BTW, I’m originally from WNY. Been in TN for 18 years but my wife and I began our family in Orchard Park, after growing up in Chautauqua Co. Asking for my wife, who grew up in Cheektowaga - Are you a Bills fan? She finds Bills fans everywhere we go! Quite a fellowship! -Speak Yes! Lifelong.., won’t stop now.

RE: Memphis I-40 Bridge Closed

Reminder: Political and religious posts, pictures, links, signatures etc. are not allowed in these forums and may be removed without notice or discussion. I had to delete a couple posts. Please stay on topic. Thank you. Now to the topic at hand, this is a big deal not only due to the impact on a major East/West interstate, but also the impact to barge traffic on the Mississippi. So in effect, two major thoroughfares, one East/West and one North/South, are affected. But the good news is, the crack (which looks pretty major based on the pictures) was discovered before anything catastrophic occurred. As for RVers heading through that area, at this point traffic appears to be worse heading eastbound than westbound. Perhaps it's the time of day, or perhaps the way that 40 and 55 come together on the Arkansas side impacting things.
