RE: Covid 19 warning

I am afraid they will, once again, begin closing campgrounds. Truly I am closer to my neighbors at home than in my self contained RV with the family. I believe a contributing factor is the large number of unmasked protesters in cities across the U.S. who protest nightly atleast here in Portland Oregon. Much more than folks simply trying to camp

While camping yesterday the fresh water hose popped off the outlet side of my water pump. I was mildly surprised to see it was just held on with a hose clamp at each end. The hose seemed 1/2 inch too short so replaced with piece of old RV water hose cut longer and returned the two hose clamps. No leaks. Made me wonder just how much pressure the pump, combined with water heater pressure, is actually under? I have had this camper for 18 years so guess it will fly. Just curious

When hooked to city water the fitting on the trailer where the hose connects has a slight drip. Tightening does not cure or help. I replaced this coupling a few years ago. Is there a simple fix i can do?

Had 6 camping reservations cancelled so far this year. Finally got out to Fort Stevens Oregon state campground. What a blessing to get out. I want to give a big THANK YOU to all campground hosts who really are the heroe's of camping. I saw a host cleaning the restrooms last weekend. I was ashamed of the trash campers leave for them. It blows my mind. I just want to say Thanks and I am sorry for the selfish behavior of others. The host cleaning up seemed cheerful and did not let this disrespect get to her.

Hi guys. I am considering your advice regarding wiring. Trailer is grounded through hitch, load bars and plug and has worked well for 19 years. Still could be a ground issue. When magnets go out is it an all or nothing?

My trailer, listed below, has developed weak brakes. It will barely show when I depress the over ride on the Prodigy 2 brake controller which is set at 6.3. That seems to be as high as it goes. I tightened all four drum brakes via adjuster in back. Did not help. I repacked the bearings two years ago and the magnets had not yet worn to show the wear marks. Original shoes and drums. I have owned this rig for 10 years. Any guesses? I am perplexed. Magnets? shoes? controller? Any thoughts apreciated.

RE: Kayak hooked to ladder?

Kayak weight would not be anb issue. Wind resistance mayt be. I would put opening facing back and give it a try

Thank you all for your input. I now have some direction. Yes, I did post similar and lost the thread. Thought I was getting senile. My bad. Sorry.

RE: Storing with levelers down?

I am guessing you mean stabilizers? No need really. Can't hurt but not needed in my opinion.

Beginning research for a new tow vehicle. Our Kia Sedona has 125K on the odometer. Our tow capacity would preferably be around 5-6K. Seating for six or more. This would be a daily driver so fuel economy is important. Also nothing too big like a Saburban. Probley buy slightly used. Any thoughts? SUV or van. Not a truck.
Oasisbob 03/30/20 05:08pm Tow Vehicles

We are beginning research on a new used tow vehicle. Our trusty van is on borrowed time. We would like to pull around 5-6 K. This would be our daily driver as well. We do foster care and need seating for 6 or more. We are thinking SUV or possibly a van. Around town mileage is somewhat important. Any suggestions?

RE: Battery Replacement Assistance

We run twin group 27 when dry camping. We run TV and video every night and furnace including all you mentioned. We are good for three nights max.

RE: Alone or in a group?

If I know the group that is great. If I do not I camp with just the family or solo. I have thin tolerance for loud drunk people late at night

RE: How to lose an awning

The guy may not have seen it from where you did. If it were me I would politely point it out to them. I can see a rig comming in at night and catching that corner.

RE: Cash Vs. Finance

Always amazes me how many people will finance an RV. Your reasoning is not worth the interest. If you really are sold on the idea of a loan you will pay. You are safe when going through a reputable dealer and having the purchase well documented.
