RE: Significant impact on RVing!!

Not sure how this is an impact to "freedom". You are still free to go. Covid has impacted a million things, Camping being one of them. When conventional travel became difficult and more people worked from home, people bought campers. This has impacted just about every park, not just national parks. Due to the influx of people, what would you have the parks do? Too many people ruins the experience and to some extent the park itself, not to mention there just aren't enough sites. If you plan on going, make reservations. Not much different than any place else you might go. If and when things return to normal, lots of folks will sell their campers and things won't be so crowded. Until then, it is what it is. But the sky isn't falling and your freedom isn't being threatened. This isn't personal. Totally agree . +1 I went to Glacier National in 2017 and it was an absolute mess and I'm sure it worse now with all the new RVer's. I don't need that aggravation so a limit might help.

RE: Dish rec’r No Satellites found using new 2000w inverter

I believe I found the cause of the no satellites found. When we got home last night, I moved the dish receiver inside the house and set it up with no issues. This morning, I moved it back to the MH and tried it and came up with no satellites found again. I ran coax directly from the receiver to the rooftop sat dish and it worked and quickly. I then isolated the cable by running the coax from the rooftop connector to the sat dish and it woked. So I have replaced the rooftop coax from the rooftop connector going to the sat dish and it works again. So it was the rooftop cable causing the sat dish not to find the satellites and not the inverter or power supply. Get yours straightener out you can do mine. I have to run cable in the window or no sat.

RE: Greystone fireplace

I replaced a Graystone with a new Graystone, the old I could set from 65?-90 at what ever I wanted. The replacement has a remote and goes from 65-95 in 5 degree incriminates, once you get the temp another push of the button gives you low/high/auto go too far and it drops to the next lower.

RE: 2022 F350 on order

Will it have a interior upgrade? The 2022 basically goes unchanged for 2022 ... about the biggest difference is that sync 4 is now included with some trim levels. Sync 4 with a larger screen... https://i.imgur.com/2Q9O1Rwl.jpg I have the sync 3 and do not like the screen at night, they need a dimmer or auto dim with the headlights.

RE: Tire went flat in the driveay. Damage?

The chance it sitting flat, stationary, did any damage is really small, not worth buying a tire if it's only 2 years old. That's just silly. And no, you cant replace the stem without breaking a bead, although only need to break 1 bead and it doesn't need to go over the rim, so pretty easy driveway fix with a jack, wood block, and your trailer hitch on your truck. Unless you replace it with a Colby valve, which are really handy, although quite expensive and IMO, better reserved for emergency repairs. Wally World $10

RE: Slide Seal Conditioner that doesn't "stink"

silicone spray, just did them this weekend. When you hear the slide pop as it goes out the seals sticking. They can stick bad enough to pull a hole in the seal, not cheap to replace.

RE: Need new tires

Sailuns vs. Good Year Endurance, which is better? I assume Sailuns are cheaper. In the market myself but not as concerned about weight since not a toy hauler anymore Both are getting excellent reviews. With what I have read your paying for the good year name and the price was not significant between them, most buying all new can afford either brand. I have run LT's on all my prior 5W's including my currant. Flat on one LT and the other where getting to the end, so I went Sailuns to see if they meet their reputation, plus the dealer had them in stock and had to order the Good Years. I have only had them on a short time but so far, high winds and 6o miles of snow cover road and the 5W tracked great.

RE: Toilet lasted 22 months, replaced it

I had a leak problem when it water would not shut off after a flush. It dribbled all night and I got up to a wet floor. I bought parts and pulled it to put parts in. There is a spring on the flush pedal, it comes off your done. I bought a Dometic 310 to replace the now defunct Aqua Magic. Whole new game, flushes around the entire rim not just a spray from a nozzle at the back, and it has a slow close lid. I'll never go back to the Aqua magic.

RE: Hum water heater not working on either Lp or electric.

IF it is a 'Dometic' 6 gal gas/eclectic it should look like this https://www.campingworld.com/dw/image/v2/BCJK_PRD/on/demandware.static/-/Sites-global-master-catalog/default/dw29f4a6f9/images/large/121676_2.jpg?sw=1350&sh=1000&sm=fit height=400 width=400 Dometic acquired Atwood few years ago and is not phasing out the Atwood Brand...redesigned the 6 gal so electric element is in the front BUT it still uses the SAME Atwood electric control design 12VDC controls gas & electric .....Common DC goes to BOTH on/off switches So check that the DC Fuse for water heater is not blown Good Main fuse then the next common DC is to/thru the T-stat Brown wires....on one of those wires is a Thermal Fuse. If it Blows NO DC to circuit board for any functions Thermal Fuse is in that clear tubing.....blows when exposed to temps 190*F/above That can happen if flame flare back should occur **Dirty combustion chamber/dirty orifice The other thing common is the 2A fuse on the circuit board Those are the 3 common Fuses for the Gas & Electric Operation Here is the New Manual for that Dometic Water Heater Installation/Operation Manual IF it is the last version of the Atwood GC6A-10E it will look like this Same 3 common fuses that would stop gas/electric from operating https://th.bing.com/th/id/R561ae1e853eac2c5018d9d26032012ab?rik=Ocil4xtImF0DxQ&riu=http%3a%2f%2fwww.2040-parts.com%2f_content%2fitems%2fimages%2f2%2f523402%2f001.jpg&ehk=UVn4D4e8YXVdFnC%2ftSmWFp4S28CC0%2bC19VUWQeYGSW0%3d&risl=&pid=ImgRaw height=400 width=400 Listen to this poster advice, and do this first.

RE: Rear Kitchen - good idea or bad idea?

Your dealer full of BS. I'm on my second RK son has his first. That model maybe discontinued but they still make RK's. Highland Ridge is a Jayco product, here is a similar 2021 Jay Flight 29RK. You will find some of the RK's have 3 tanks, 2 gray and 1 black so you end up with two discharge outlets. Mine did, for about $50 I was able to tie the two outlet drains to a single discharge.

RE: Bringing Trailer in for Service - Need Advice

I personally refuse to pay anyone for something I can do. Buy the parts on line & save. Do what your doing, YouTube's your friend, watch a couple on the subject. The shower may need a simple re caulking. I admit my wifes better at this than I am, she does cake decorations and says it the same. I can do it but not as smooth a bead as she does. The chloroplast under is the easiest on you list. Make the opening U cut with the opening to the rear. Get a roll of aluminum tape to close it back up. Tape sticks to almost anything and its water proof, wipe the dirt away from where the tape will go. You will save many dollars and you can do all these in a day. The dealer will take weeks, and add, taxes, shop supplies, disposal fees etc not in the "estimate". $75 shop rates cheap these days Camping Worlds up to $120 - $130 an hour.

RE: 7.3 Diesel help

look into an SCT recommended by my diesel tech. I used it on my 7.3 downloaded a new program when I bought my 6.0 and got another tune for the 6.7 I'm driving now. You will need to return the vehicle to stock before trading up, it can not be "married" to a vehicle. here is a good source for info and where I go to get answersFord Truck Enthusiasts
