RE: How to Restore Old Fiberglass

Use PoliGlow. I did it on my last 5er and the difference was like night and day.https://poliglow.com/ I've used polyglow on a boat I bought that was 15 yrs old and sat outside ... made it look like new. It lasts a couple of years in the Florida sun until it needs to be reapplied.... easy job... wipe on with a sponge/chamois.

RE: Are RV sewer hose supports necessary?

a couple months ago, we were in Maricopa County, Arizona and were told that the county requires use of elevated sewer hoses... luckily I had a hose trellis stashed away .

RE: Florida State Park Reservation window changes

To put it in perspective, there are about 2000 campsites in all of Florida State parks. Letting residents have access to these isn't going to kill the tourist economy. Disney's Ft. Wilderness alone has nearly the capacity (1500 sites and cabins) as the entire state park system. Oh, Disney has well over 20,000 rooms just on their property..... add an order or 2 of magnitude to that just for the Orlando area. State parks do not drive the tourist economy in Florida.

Florida State Park Reservation window changes

The Governor has approved HB 109, this bill allows Florida residents to reserve state park campsites 11 months in advance, non- residents 10 months. It goes into effect Jan 1, 2024.

RE: Manifold Replacements

I had a 1999 first gen v-10. Had it for over 125,000 almost trouble free miles, all pulling a toad. The 2 problems I had during this 13 yrs period were the serpentine belt idler pully bearing went bad and the starter relay died. I did replace the manifolds shortly after i bought it with SS headers.... never had an issue as a result.

RE: Turn signal makes no clicking sound

You are probably low on Blinker Fluid, should replace every 2 years or so..... https://i.imgur.com/sUm7GSDl.jpg

RE: How long does a P32 radiator last?

As long as you are going to do PM, won't hurt to take the radiator out and have it rodded. That way, you'll know you are good.

RE: Is there any REAL quality out there?

Winnebago officially acquired Newmar in November of 2019. They are built in Nappanee Indiana. That means Amish guys running around being paid by the piece slapping it together as fast as they can. If you've seen the factories, it's nuts. I guess I just don't want to drop 100k of hard earned money on something somebody else slaps together... Sorry not trying to insult others or anything. So "older" Newmar coaches were built where? Would be interesting if they were built in a quality factory. That's correct... plus , for the most part, working there is a "part time" job, their full time job is on the farm , which they head to in the early afternoon.

Source for HWH R2365 springs ??

It's been over 2 years and HWH still doesn't have the springs in stock. Anyone have a source for R2365 spring kits ? I've been using the trusty 2x4 to raise the jacks the last couple of inches when needed, but would like to replace the springs so I can retire the 2x4 !!!

RE: Under Counter Mounted Coffee Maker

be careful as the steam can have an effect on the finish of the material directly above it. other than that, it worked fine. bumpy Yep---- what I did was put a piece of lexan ( or similar) above the pot, it slid in the small gap between the unit and the bottom of the cabinet... when I had the brewer on, I just pulled out that lexan a few inches and it kept the steam off the cabinet.

RE: Typical price for Class A tire mounting and balance

I'm also in the Tampa area and when I needed tires a couple years ago, I went with NTCS. You have to pay a small one time fee to join... its good for ever and applies to any vehicle you may have. They , by far, had the best price on tires and arranged to have installation at a place of your choosing. When you get the tires, you are billed directly by Michelin... not NTCS or the tire place.

RE: Used to be informative

Back in the day it was Mexico wanderer, 2oldman and many others. That was about 5 to 10 years ago. We started snowbirding in 2013 and I set up our FW and utility trailer to double tow our atv and dirt bikes. This site was excellent for info on powering up an rv for boondocking. Now that my wife has passed on Im probably downsizing to my tiny cabin and a Honda rancher on my utility trailer. I always liked Quartzite and Ogilby rd in socal. I didn’t want to go to farcebook but maybe I have to One ( of the many things) I don't like about facebook is that everything is just sort of random and scattered.... I saw your profile said Oatman--- we were there last month... it has been about 25 years since our last visit !

RE: Maintenance Schedule !

As you know the literature that comes with the purchase of an RV is pretty slim and leaves a lot out ! Every year , about April the first, I perform a much needed maintenance chore , changing the " blinker Fluid " . It is easy and examples of how to do it can be found on U-Tube ! You can purchase an 8 oz bottle at most auto stores for less than $10 . I do this every other year although once I went seven years but the fluid that I pumped out was " nasty ". Be sure and put this on your schedule ! I have several cars/trucks and the RV so this is what I buy so I have enough . https://i.imgur.com/YtmoaGUl.jpg

RE: Difficulty timing a 1995 Chevy 454ci

How many miles on the engine ? Have you checked the timing chain ? It does have north of 200k on it. I am thinking about the timing chain, but it was running, driving just days ago. Hurts my brain a bit to think about it. A timing job would involve dropping a front cover, removing the crank/harmonic balancer/water pump right? Well you have some investigation to do. Check easier/simpler stuff first. I had one jump timing at about 175k miles , it would start and run, but run hot/rough. Then it jumped again and that was it... wouldn't start. I replaced the gears and chain in the motel parking lot that I had managed to coast into when it died.

RE: Camping in New Zealand

Never thought of the government red tape. How long ago was it your sister in law planned her trip? Thanks for the insight. We were there a 5-6 years ago. We didn't camp, but rented a car and just freelanced and drove around for several weeks stopping at motels when we were done for the day. No red tape, no questions, no issues.
