RE: Mission Texas Weather

If you dig a little deeper the difference in the Hi and Low temperatures in S Fla is 10-12 degrees most days during the winter. In S TX the average is 15-20 degrees plus the 5 degrees ^^^^ adds up.

RE: It’s that time again...to have some fun

Turn about is only fair...44 degrees in WPB this morning (coldest temp in 9 years) and Mission is 66 which will be about the same as our high today. Probably should stop here ....not, so miracles do happen.:B

RE: washer/dryer

No reason not to, especially if you are going from CG to CG, even with small tanks. Uses 20 gallons and a out of balance load on the spin cycle will put more force on it than any bump.

RE: Need to replace LED strip lighting under awning

Unfortunately it’s normal for the strips to loose sections and finally completely. Doesn’t seem to make any difference you pay for them.

RE: Considering moving from a Newmar 40' to a Fleetwood 38'

HP numbers are misleading as the 6.7 HP is more than your ISC...arrived at by turning the 6.7 2800 rpms instead of 2200 for the ISC. The good news is the torque is only 200 ftlbs less than your ISC. Also, the pollution systems problems have gotten fixed (2010-2014) and DEF is readily available. When upgrading 2 years ago I was not impressed with the quality of new rigs, but I was not looking at the smaller rigs. Ended up going with a 10 year old rig which has worked out well. *Now that I see the above post by Larry...he sums up my thoughts about the rig you know and what’s often referred to as “the new MH blues”. Hopefully the smaller new rigs have not gone to advanced electronics to control everything.

RE: residential refrig.

Thank you for all the quick replies to my question on running a R/R. Happy Camping “replies to my question”??? In 8 hours I’d say 8 degrees if you do not open the doors. Some will put a gallon of frozen water from the freezer into the refrigerator. A 500-600W inverter will run a residential and a 1000W will let you add TVs and Sat receiver.

RE: 2010 650 Cummins mileage

I bough mine before reading about the broken #6 valve problem. Not a clear answer as to why nor what to do about stopping it from happening. Too soon to say the new and improved parts will solve the problem or the new engine. Why is this happening mainly in MHs and hopefully only in the 600-650 HP engines? I was able to get a camera to the #6 intake and it didn’t look any different than the 4 or 5. I am using the “Ugly Fix” and I installed a metal freeze plug in the EGR tube at 46K miles and it now has 56K. At this point all I can do is cross my fingers and hope for the best as we really like this MH. *OP, NO WAY would I buy a ISX, especially a 600-650 HP. I would keep what you have until a definite cause and cure is guaranteed...not there yet.

RE: 2010 650 Cummins mileage

MPG is not even in the ball park of possible expenses on that engine. You need to read these 32 pages on repeated #6 broken valve on the ISX engines: http://www.irv2.com/forums/f123/cummins-isx-broken-valve-in-6-a-401436.html #6 broken valve There is a post today on it in a 06 ISX...not sure yet if it was a 600 HP. I have a 06 525 HP that hopefully is not prone to this problem. http://www.irv2.com/forums/f123/isx-cummins-failure-473121.html 2006 ISX

RE: Near Brownsville, Texas

If you want to know the safety of an area, go to Google street view you can see if homes have bars on their windows. That’s all I need to know a area.

RE: Is dash cam evidence allowed in an investigation

If serious enough (going to court) I would insist on the LEO taking possession of the camera (with a receipt) so the chain of evidence is maintained.

RE: Parking in Jacksonville, FL Wal Mart

As a CG owner, please go to WalMart or Cracker Barrel for a “couple hours sleep”. Sounds like it will be after dark...not a good time to disturb those already asleep in a CG.

RE: It’s that time again...to have some fun

East Coast folks go straight south to Florida, I get that. A few come to Texas. Some enjoy it, some rush back to Florida. We are lucky to have options although some seem to think that it is, "My way or the highway". I agree I-95 ruined SE FL as it goes to NYC. Hopefully people take this as having fun and The prices in S FL are outrageous ...$1000+\month. Fortunately I bought a site 14 years ago and its increased value will pay for what’s it cost to own plus the purchase price (including interest) when we retire from RVing...its more than doubled in price. Yes, 80 degree temp are coming to S TX...Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year where ever you are. Pity those up north.

RE: 2004 Windsor Monaco:MAIN SLIDEOUTS WONT OPERATE,Bedroom Does

The BR slide is mechanical and LR slides are hydraulic ...power pack is below the steps. Corrosion on the relay wire contacts is the usual problem and the motor has a normal starter solenoid...cleaning its connections is where I’d start since both do not work.

RE: It’s that time again...to have some fun

“Bars on the Windows” ^^^^^^ When traveling world wide, bars on the windows of homes is all I need to know about the safety of an area and that I will NOT be back. I stopped going to Mexico 15 years ago although next month I may get off the ship in Cozumel to buy some cheap , legal drugs. And the noise from a “shooting range” is a plus??? I love shooting but only when I’m the one pulling the trigger. Still waiting for when the weather in S TX is better than S FLa and you can leave off the wind speeds.

RE: Traveling southbound through Atlanta on I-75 in 5th wheel

I’ve been going straight through for 14 years with 14 wheels...not a commercial vehicle.

RE: Traveling southbound through Atlanta on I-75 in 5th wheel

I go straight through and if you are willing to run 65-70, use the HOV lane (2 people). Sunday is better than Saturday. We will be going through Christmas Day when there is very little truck traffic. Where are you going in FLa?

RE: Florida to Sevierville, easiest route

I would not recommend GSMNP as flattest, especially N bound. From F Beach 95, 26, 40 is shorter and no major climbs. SC has the cheapest fuel in the SE.

RE: It’s that time again...to have some fun

Like TX, FL is a long state so there can be a big difference in temperatures as all of Fl is snowbird country...unlike TX where it’s mainly along the Rio Grande or Corpus Christi. With water on both sides, FL does warmup fairly quickly. I do not understand why Corpus and Dallas we’re both 33 this morning??? Guess it’s that water on both sides of FL as it’s 300 miles between Miami (63) and Gainesville (35) and 345 miles between Corpus (33) and Dallas (33)??? https://i.imgur.com/9oaB8u9l.png

RE: Looking for info on TSD Logistics

Plenty of posts on this and the savings average 30-40 cents on an inflated price. Thanks to GasBuddy and a Sam’s credit card my savings average 40-50 cents without giving out my banking info...do not need another bank account to limit the exposure. If you need a truck stop for fuel then it’s a good deal.

It’s that time again...to have some fun

The LOW temperatures in WPB, FL are the same as the HIGH temps in Mission, TX over the next 10 days. Only problem is it’s 27 degrees this morning in Blairsville, GA and another week before I head south.
