RE: Getting rid of campfire smoke odor

This may sound all too easy,but take a bowl, and fill it with fresh coffee grounds, and leave it in the coach as long as possible. We had a similar problem with a car that we bought. The person that owned it before us was a cigarette smoker, put a bowl of fresh coffee grounds on the floor in front of the back seat, and in about a week no more smell. Hope this helps.

RE: Is older really better than newer....

I agree with most of the posts. We sold our 14 year old "Open Road" and bought this "Grand Design" and all I've been doing is work on this unit. Yes the technology is up to date, but that does not get me down the road. I do have to admit that this (Grand Design) unit is not as heavy as the older one. We did keep the older unit in great shape and sold it for way more than it was advertised in NADA. Shop around, and if you can find a good unit, as mentioned in other posts,and, for a good price you would then have room for any and all updates.

RE: Water hose

Not "CHEAP" but it will be the last hose you will ever buy! They have several lengths along with SS and Brass ends. rvwaterfilterstore.com They sell fittings, valves and pressure regulators and more. Going on 4 years of full time use. https://i.imgur.com/EfKZqcXl.jpg Thank you Cummins12V98 I will check their website. I can see you can search more than hoses.

Water hose

Can anyone recommend a water hose that stays flexible during cooler temps. Right now I have the Camco water hose and when the temps get around 40 degrees or so, it is simply annoying to try to roll these hoses up for storage. Thanks

RE: Oil Change

There are a great deal of good answers here. The technology in todays oil is far better than years ago. We have an LB7 Duramax engine and the recommended oil change interval is 10,000 miles. I have never gone that long on an oil change. I usually change the oil every 5,000 miles, even on the road. I can't see any long term damage to your engine if this is the only time you go over your comfort zone on one oil change. It has been recommended, and I agree, to check your oil level often and enjoy your trip.

RE: How is I-10E in Texas?

We just came back from Kerrville Texas on Friday and I-10 is a good road. It was a bit slow through El Paso. We were not in a hurry so we stayed over night in Van Horn. Diesel and gas are higher than it was in New Mexico. Safe travels.

RE: Carefree electric awning question

I use slide-out lube for all the hinged and sliding parts. I also use the slide-out lube on the gas cylinder if so equipped.

Corsicana mattress

Looking at a queen size Corsicana mattress from Mattress Firm for our 5th wheel. Has to be light enough weight wise to lift for sheet changes and these mattresses were. Has anyone here had any experience with this brand of mattress, good or bad? They are made in Texas. Thanks.

RE: Confused on what type of tent to buy and size

Hey people I've been camping a few times years ago but I am going away camping in 2 weeks with a group of people and I need some info on what I should buy please It's only myself and a friend who will be sleeping in the tent but we need to go halves and don't want to spend a lot of money but I don't want to buy junk because we may go again sometime in the future What brands are ok but not really expensive? Since it's just my friend and me but we still need room, what size should I be looking at? Thanks :) You didn't mention what your price limit is, but here are two suggestions: Marmot Limelight 2 person/3 season tent or the REI Co-op 2 Plus tent. Both are under $200. Google for nearest location or you can purchase online. Happy camping!

RE: Warranty work!

Repair facilities also can't keep up with demand due to all the junk being sold. If the factory's would have a little quality control, many repairs would be unnecessary. Anyone can do your warranty work so long as the manufacturer OK's it. Feel free to do your own work, as I did when my trailer was new, and avoid having your RV sit at the dealer for weeks. I agree with this quote. We have a new 5th wheel (in signature) and I have done all of our repairs. Now, having said that, so far all repairs have been cosmetic, and one was structural. I have called some of the manufactures with question/problems and they have been very helpful with instructions on trouble shooting a problem. (One comes to mind and that is Lippert) they have been patient and helpful. Dexter is another company that has been helpful to us over the years. So going to the dealer may not be the best bet if you can do it yourself. My 2 cents...Bruce

RE: Super duty rear ratio!

I'm starting to research buying a new truck. I'm defiantly going diesel this time and wondering what rear end a person should get. I'll be towing a camper around 9K. with about 1200K in the box of the truck. I'm hoping to buy used. My 6.2 had 3:73 which pulled our 8600# camper well, but wish it would have had the 4:10 in it. Does a person go to 3:55 or stay at 3:73 or even move up to 4:10. I would appreciate peoples information. Kind Regards, Nathan We have the 3:73 and it does fine. With the power the newer diesels have, one could go with the 3:55. Being that you are buying used, you should research the specs (especially the torque) of the diesel engine. When we are towing and I am in "tow mode" usually the (transmission) will not shift into 5th gear until 60 MPH. I am used to it now, as we have owned this truck for 14 years. Hope this helps............Bruce
