RE: Solution to Trash Left Behind!

Part of the problem with litter is there is no convenient place to dispose it. People dump tires, old mattresses, etc. along seldom traveled roads and other places because municipal dumping places are few and far as well as their charges for dumping are out of reach for many people. In some campgrounds, the "pack it in-pack it out" plan where you are supposed to take all your trash home with you, leaves people without any resource to discard leaky smelly trash they don't want in the passenger seat of their vehicle. Other campgrounds have one central spot for trash disposal, often quite a distance from the campsite.

RE: Heat setting off smoke alarm

Yes just run it about two hours. I bet your problem is then solved.

RE: Do most parks check/copy your ID? (Victims of ID theft)

Check into any hotel and they will take a copy of your driver's license, too. A visit to any medical professional gets a copy of your driver's license. A visit to many government buildings gets a copy of your driver's license. Boarding an airplane, renting a car, and the list goes on!

RE: Fed up with tire blow outs!!!

The TT is not overloaded as I only use it for weekends so just the minimum stuff needed. First weigh your trailer loaded ready to go camping. Next see what the load rating for the tires- they may well be overloaded. Next check the speed rating of the tires. Go faster than they are designed to go, and they will self destruct.

RE: WHAT dinghy or toad is good to tow ???

To me would be a vehicle with the proven reliability for 4-down towing is the only choice. Many people have nightmare stories of manufacturers claiming their vehicle can be safely towed 4-down only to be faced with multiple transmission failures. After market add-ons like transmission pumps and driveshaft disconnects only complicate the issue. Get a vehicle that can be towed 4-down with no mileage, speed restrictions, or song and dance routines requirements every so many miles.

RE: Replacement Fridge Bigger than the Door.

Ours had to go out and back in through the bedroom window. Some class As have to remove the windshield. Great information except the OP clearly stated he had a Lance truck camper.

RE: Cracked frame Heartland/Lippert - Warranty but no help!

I am sorry you have this problem and with all due respect, you are part of the problem. Lippert asked you to find a qualified shop willing to repair the frame, and apparently offered to assist with if nothing else, the knowledge on how to repair. You in turn, said not my problem its under warranty you find someone to fix it. Why don't you become involved, work with Lippert to get it fixed, and move on with your life? It seems that Lippert's dealer network in the area is not qualified to make the repairs, and they want you to help in finding a shop to do the repairs. Seems very reasonable on their part.

RE: Understanding 50A in my RV

There are many homes with 100A services still so why are RV's different? RV's aren't different. They are wired exactly the same. Some homes have 200 amp service and are wired exactly the same as a 50 amp RV. Well not quite correct, in a house panel you can tap 240 volt circuit simply by installing a double breaker for your panel that will connect one breaker to each leg. In an RV the legs split at the main breaker, giving two legs of 120 50 amp capacity. You can get one 240 volt circuit by using a double breaker with half size breakers in place of the main. Typicality you would install a 50/30 double half size breaker the 50 being the main and the 30 being a 240 volt feed for a dryer, or in my case my Cheap Heat system. You are quite wrong! See Doug's post below who knows what he is talking about!!!!

RE: What The Heck???

i have two 12volt house batteries. the difference i see from the posted diagrams: there is currently no cable(s) that attach to each positive post like the one cable that attaches to each batteries negative post...the positive posts are independent of each other and not "joined together" by any cable. And therein lies your problem. You have connected the batteries incorrectly.

RE: Atlanta.... any issues

Hwy 78 out of Augusta to Thompson then take Hwy 278 all the way into Atlanta. Basically parallels I-20.

RE: New trailer heating options

Doing a lot of boondocking, I would suggest two volt batteries. I know what you meant, but this is funny as is!

RE: Is it possible to finance a $23K trailer for 180 months?

We just purchased our travel trailer and got a much better rate than that. We shopped around for a couple lenders, got preapproved through our bank and the dealer was able to get a another .25% off. We financed for 144 months to get the interest rate (longer term = lower rate), put a sizable down payment, and will be sending in almost double the scheduled payment amount. We will end up paying the loan off in ~5 years as opposed to 12 years. Check your contract with the bank regarding early pay offs, and discuss with the bank how to handle extra payments. Without care on your part, those extra payments will be applied to future monthly due payments, and although you pay the loan off early, you will pay all the interest as if you paid for the whole term. Sometimes it is just better to make the minimum monthly payment and save up extra money to make a one time large payment to pay off the loan. You can cost yourself many thousands of dollars if you don't do this right.

RE: Any KZ Durango Gold owners? If so, a couple questions

When buying a used unit, the condition of the particular unit is far more important than the initial build quality. A 5 year old well built unit in poor condition is unquestionably a worse buy than a cheaply built 5 year old unit in pristine condition. Water intrusion is the RV's worst enemy and some water damage is very expensive to repair to the point costing more than purchasing a new unit. You mentioned the slide having a 4" gap. Not sure where and if extended or closed, but that at the very least shows the slide needs an adjustment. It also could be water intrusion has destroyed some of the bracing causing the misalignment which is common with slide outs.

RE: For Alaskans going S... is snowbirding essential travel?

I suggest you get a very recent COVID test before the crossing and bring those test results (negative, hopefully) with you.

RE: We camped without George for the first time.

What do you say to George, a Honda 2000W inverter generator after all these years we have been together, when he knows he is not needed? Dave I am quite certain the inanimate gasoline engine and generator do not have any feelings or any capability of thought. But I could be wrong.

RE: Dental Assistance

Usually with dental insurance, one can self insure and at least break even but mostly be money ahead. You can expect the premiums to be around $30 to $60 monthly or more, and except for routine cleanings, have high deductibles and low limits for specific procedures. Shop around, understand exactly what it pays and how much; then, decide if just setting the money aside yourself and elf-insuring is not a better option.

RE: Camping with my dog

To the people complaining about leaving a dog alone in the RV: if the dog is used to be alone at the sticks and brick house, there is no difference leaving the dog alone in the RV. I'm not so sure. Most sticks and bricks houses are set back from the street a pretty good distance, and a dog inside could very well not even notice someone walking on the street or sidewalk. But in most RV parks, the RVs are much closer to the public areas where people are walking, which makes dogs bark. You took my statement out of context. Shame on you!
