RE: Locked radio on my 2001 Suburban

Is this video helpful? I know you already got the codes and tried to call, but thought maybe the 800 number in the video was different. Good luck. https://youtu.be/apJXIxFpfcc

RE: Flattest routes from GA To Nashville,TN

Where in Georgia? If south Georgia, you can take a number of routes west into Alabama and pick up 65 in Montgomery or Birmingham, avoiding the worst of the grades such as Monteagle. If you're coming up from Atlanta, you can still head west on 20 to Birmingham and then up 65. It'll add miles but you'll avoid Chattanooga and Monteagle. If North GA, I'm not sure how to avoid mountains without going far out of your way. Maybe someone else has a suggestion.

RE: .

I think there is enough "graffiti", in-your-face advertising everywhere. No thank-you! But is anyone old enough on these forums to remember when the Pall Mall tobacco advertisers use to go around and offer to paint barns for free, provided they were allowed to paint the side with their Pall Mall cigarette advertisement? You don't see that very much any more today. There is still one old barn not too far from where I live that still has the barn with that advertisement. It's encouraging to know, that.. way back then ... at least ... they used long-lasting paint! No thanks! Not on my RV! One of my Dad's barns on the farm was painted by Mail Pouch Tobacco.

RE: stopping point/overnight camp between Ohio & Fort Wilderness

Thanks guys! so many good suggestions.... However, will I need to make advance reservations for any of these overnight campgrounds south of atlanta for the evening of new years eve? or is there enough options that getting one night wont be a problem? thanks! I have found that many campgrounds along I-75 catering to overnight guests will fill up as the evening progresses by folks without reservations simply stopping for the night, and many folks stop earlier than I like to. But in the afternoon there are lots of spots. Not wanting to stop that early, I often will prepare ahead of time a list of potential stopping places along my route, with their phone numbers. Then when I stop to fuel up mid to late afternoon, I'll see how the day has been going and decide about how much farther I want to get, and make a phone call to reserve a spot at that point. I hate to make a reservation days or weeks ahead not knowing how the traveling will go, but by the afternoon of that day I know how far I'll get and can usually get a spot reserved, whereas if I wait until 8 or 9 that evening to stop without a reservation, it's possible the campground will be full. By the way, I like to use this map resource when planning out my list of potential stops. https://www.epgsoft.com/CampgroundMap/

RE: stopping point/overnight camp between Ohio & Fort Wilderness

In my opinion, Cincinnati to Valdosta in late December is a bit aggressive, considering how early it gets dark, the holiday week traffic, and having kids along. I've certainly pushed that many miles in a day, and it's possible, but you end up being exhausted. However, Atlanta South certainly seems doable. I've stayed there before, and it was fine for an overnight...plenty of pull through sites and easy on/off the interstate. The only thing I recall was the bath houses not being great, but that was probably 8 years ago so it's quite possible they've been upgraded since then. A friend of mine stops regularly at the Forsyth KOA on their way to the Fort, and they always have good things to say about it. If you do decide to push through to the Valdosta area, I really like Eagles Roost in Lake Park GA for an overnight.

RE: Marinated Hotdogs

Come to Buffalo and get the best Hot Dog, charcoal grilled Salen's! It was a happy day for me when Publix started carrying them here in Tennessee.

RE: Niagara Falls scow moved

Between corrosion and now movement, it doesn't appear as though it has too many years left. But I bet not many people in 1918 thought it would sit there through winter much less 100 years, so what do I know?

RE: Another "Yuk" thread, or OMG, or what are they thinking?

Reminds me of a picture that was posted on another forum several years back from Fort Wilderness where someone had draped their sewer hose over the grill at a campsite, presumably to dry it or something. Imagine the next guy who slapped his burgers or dogs down on that grate, not knowing what had been laying there? You're joking, right??? How many times have you placed your raw meat on a cold grill? No-one, but no-one, does not heat the grill to temperature and scrub the crud from the last cook out off the grill by which time _anything_ that _might_ have been on the outside is burned away. I have a $100 that says that no-one got sick as a result of being the next person to use the grill... I'll go $1000 that no-one died... So if someone were to lay their sewer hose across your grill, you'd be fine with it because you are heating it up and running a grill brush across it? I never said the next griller would get sick, but it doesn't make it any less disgusting. But hey, you do you.

RE: Misaligned shower door

I have found that when my shower door is off like that it is a result of the rv not being level, or at least one corner may be lower creating some flex in the frame. Try adjusting corner jacks a bit and see if it brings the door into alignment.

RE: Winnie to Purchase Newmar

It's been interesting to watch Winnebago's moves within their diesel manufacturing capabilities this year. Earlier in the year they shut down the Oregon line at the old Country Coach factory, and shifted all diesel manufacturing to Forest City. They announced they would start up a new diesel assembly line in the 4th quarter of 2019. It was interesting that they basically winnowed down their diesel offerings to 2...the Forza (which I think was always built in Iowa) and the Horizon. I assumed maybe this was because of the manufacturing shift, and that once the new assembly line was running they'd introduce another diesel model or two. Now I wonder how, or if, the Newmar purchase will impact future diesel lineup plans for the Winnie brand? Will continue to be interesting to watch.

RE: Damaged water pump intake strainer cup.

I've never had that happen in 20+ years of having TT's and now a motorhome. Could have cracked over last winter due to residual water, and became worse over the summer's use ? Don't know. But, a cheap and easy fix....I'd just check it on occasion. This would be my guess as well. I had one freeze and crack once when some residual water damaged it. It turned white just like the OP's picture shows.

RE: How to watch the Minnesota Vikings

You need an app for your computer, tablet, phone called Dazn. You can watch the Vikings anytime you want, including full version, condensed version, or highlights. Even the following week or month if you wish. It is a lot cheaper than Sunday Ticket and is reliable. They are produce sports from all over the world. I'm not sure if NFL games are available on DAZN in the US. Does anyone know?

RE: RV toilet paper

That's all I do. Septic safe paper, and plenty of water so nothing dries out in the tank.

RE: Selling a Class A Motorhome

I am sorry for your loss. I'm sure you are dealing with a lot, and selling an RV can be a time consuming and stressful process. While I've sold a couple of motorhomes on my own with success, it wasn't during a period such as you are navigating through right now. Therefore, I agree with the above posters that consignment may be a good option for you. I did a Google search and found a motorhome dealer in Holland that does consignment sales. It's Holland Motorhomes, and their number is (800) 221-7197. There are likely others. I know nothing of your motorhome and whether it's one that fits the parameters of what that dealer would be interested in (they look to sell mainly late model coaches). If your coach is a bit older, there are certainly dealers that may be interested, you'd just have to call others and ask the questions. I hope you have luck selling.

RE: Disney Fort Wilderness Site selection and other questions

I have had the best luck faxing a request (yes, faxing, old school as it is) to the Site Assignor at the Fort 5 days ahead of my arrival. The fax number is 407-824-3508. The fortfiends.net site has recommendations for how to best accomplish this: https://www.fortfiends.net/topic/79-fort-wilderness-faq/?do=findComment&comment=9676 My recommendation is to outline your general needs in the letter, such as needing to be near a bus stop, easy to back into, etc. The assignors have ALWAYS met my needs when I've done this. If there are a handful of specific sites, or loops, you want to request then do so in the letter and they'll do their best to meet it. But definitely tell them WHY you requested those sites (the needs per above). Good luck!

RE: BBQ Baby Back Ribs using an Instant Pot questions

I do it all the time and they come out awesome. Instant pot with water and apple cider vinegar plus any seasonings you like, cook high pressure for 25 minutes. Tender but still on the bone, finish on grill with your favorite sauce. Also, cook them on Trivet so they don't sit in the liquid. Exactly.....as said above cook for 25 min in the IP. Here's a recipe if you'd like: https://amindfullmom.com/instant-pot-ribs/
