RE: effects of / protection from undervoltage

I'd appreciate more explanation re. cause and effect...and what protective steps can be taken....and, if this involves sticking probes into a live outlet socket or something to check voltage, count me out--don't want to be the next Ted Bundy I first noticed it in in older CG during a hot spell. Older CG's that haven't been updated were not set up for the large RV's with multiple AC units that we have now. I saw the voltage dropping to unacceptable levels and notified the CG. They said they understood the issue , but there was nothing they could do. I packed up and left for another CG in the area. Shortly afterwards, I bought an EMS and then a bit later a Hughes autoformer. That was about 15 yrs ago and between the Hughs and the EMS I've been OK since.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Maybe I missed it, but, what keeps the drawers from sliding open while underway ?

RE: Blue Ridge Parkway info??

I've driven it in a a car many years ago and then about 10 years ago we entered the parkway at Asheville and started heading north. Our MH was about 12' high.... it was constantly hitting branches... so much , that as soon as I found a place to turn around, I did and exited the parkway. I have heard they subsequently trimmed up the overhangs, but suggest you check with recent travelers.

RE: Are damage deposits at parks customary?

I've never heard of it... but if I wanted to stay there and submit the depoist, a pre-occupancy walk around with management and pictures would come first, then upon vacating the site, another walk around and if all is well, immediate refund of deposit.

RE: is a surge protector necessary for a basic travel trailer?

Got a refrigerator? Got a furnace? Got an air conditioner? Yup, you need one. But.... what you really need is an EMS for true protection. JK yep- low voltage will get you ( and your electronics, esp A/C) more often than surges

RE: Thoughts on a MC Toad Trailer

Around here, there are plenty of used single axle motorcycle/utility trailers for around $500. Something like that would be much easier to maneuver and store at a campsite. Look on Craigslist and facebook Market place

RE: Finger Lakes NY or surrounding areas

Taughannock Falls State Park has a nice trail thru the gorge to the falls and campsites on the lake. It's a bit north of Ithaca on Cayuga Lake. Clute Park is in the town of Watkins Glen, across the street is the lakefront part of the park. It's is an easy walk to stores/restaurants.

RE: Electric Toad

Towing a Tesla There are all kinds of articles online. Some say a Tesla can't be towed, this one says yes. One article I previously read said the charging system would overheat if the vehicle was being flat towed. (I believe it was a Tesla) Towed at 20 mph for 1 mile isn't going to work for an RV toad. When the Tesla Cyber truck was announced, I contacted support at Tesla to see if it was going to be 4 down towable... they told me no. Had they said yes, I would have gotten into the order queue.

RE: Transmission service price

It should have a drain plug in the pan. What I do is change the fluid every 25k miles and the filter and fluid every 50k. So basically fluid every 25k then the filter skips a change. With the drain plug there is zero mess. How many miles on the trans? 32,000 on the trans. We tow our Jeep though and have done many 2500 miles trips towing it. It's time, I think to change out everything. No problem. I agree to change it all. I also tow my Explorer. I work it hard, so keeping he fluid fresh is the simplest thing you can do. I just wish I could monitor the trans temp other than the dash gauge. I could on my Excursion, but my monitor doesn't give you that PID on a 2011 chassis. Get a scan guage.... allows you to monitor many parameters, including tranny temp. I had one on my f-53 based MH.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Then it's just a matter of patience and time while the glue dries. Doesn't someone make a glue with a 5 minute set time, and 10 minutes to full cure, for those of us that are in a huge hurry? Lol. Yea, I guess not. By the way, after over 3 years, who said I was in a hurry? http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/drawerassemble2.jpg How about that stuff they advertise on TV that you set with a UV light ? Shows them attaching bricks to a wall and then people walking on them like steps after a few seconds set time. Here's an example from Amazon.... UV Glue You should buy a kit and do your analysis and report back to us as a public service to your faithful followers:) I want to say thank you for your suggestion to have a look at this uv glue. So far, it has been holding up well with the plastic "ear" that I put back into place. I have never had a lot of success trying to glue plastics, but this seems to be working well. I may have to order a larger "refill" and play with this on some other things. So - Thank You. Glad it worked.... I'll have to get some. I've tried super glue,JB Weld,etc. This looks like a good option. Appreciate your experiment and teh good results.

RE: Florida State Park camping tag good at other FL state parks?

I'll be camping at Fort Clinch State Park in a couple weeks. While I'm there, does my camping tag get me in to other nearby Florida state parks such as Amelia Island state park or Talbot Island state park or do I have to pay their entrance fees as well? The rule is you need to pay the entrance fee at the other parks. But, I've also been left in free by explaining to the person at the gate that I wanted to check out the park and that I'm staying at xxxx Park and showing them my pass. It all depends on the person at the gate.

RE: F53 Shock Suggestions

When I had an F53 based MH, I swapped out the original shocks for Monroe's .... made a world of difference.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

It even comes with instructions - you know - for those that actually read instructions.... http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/uvlightglue2.jpg http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/uvlightglue3.jpg ... and the instructions appear to be written by a native English speaker and not Chinese run thru a translate app ! It says it only hardens with UV, I suppose that would mean that on wood joints, that only the exposed edges would harden ? What if you just put a blob of the stuff outside, would the suns UV rays cause it to harden ?

RE: Can my carpet be dyed?

Find a spot underneath something and do a test. many ,many years ago , I moved into an apartment while waiting to get a home purchase done and the carpet was a very light color with stains. I bought some dye and applied it with a carpet shampoo machine. Actually turned ok pretty good, at least for the time I was there.

RE: Road way and Elevation issues while traveling

In general, if you go on US labeled roads/routes you'll be good. I.E. US301, US1 etc.

RE: FL questions

A couple of thoughts. First - if you do decide that Ft. DeSoto Park looks good don't be put off by lack of available sites. On Friday mornings (at least this was true before COVID) they release a number of sites for the following week. We were able to get a site that way sort of last minute a couple years back. Second, there is an RV park in the Bradenton area, Frog Creek, that my cousin spends the winter at. She's really into kayaking, and she loves this park for that. I haven't been there, and I don't know if there are manatees, but apparently it's ideal for kayaking. Have fun! -Speak No manatees around there( Frog Creek) ... at least not congregating. It's always possible to see them in the area as they go out from their warm water spots to feed during the day. . We sometimes get them in the canal behind our house. It is good paddling there in the tidal creeks and Bishop Harbor area. At the Big Bend Power Plant about 15 miles north in Apollo Beach, there is a Manatee viewing station and education center. In the winter months, there are literally hundreds of manatees there. BUT, due to covid they are closed until November 2021 .

RE: Harbor Freight - what happened to the 20% off coupons

This morning I received an email from HF.... guess what, the free trinkets are back ! LED flashlight,masks,tarps. Not that I'm going to go for one on it's own, but if I should need something, I'll certainly take my freebie

RE: FL questions

You might want to check Mary's Fish Camp. Close to Weeki Wachee Springs and Crystal River. Short drive to the beaches at Clearwater.
