RE: fuel Guage error?

I don't know about that Winnie, but some of the MHs have issues with the fuel getting down into the tank, and will shut off the trigger well before the tank is full. While it may not always be a good idea to play with the trigger to get as much into the tank as possible, you may want to fiddle with it at least once, to see what "FULL" actually is on this rig. Once you know, I would then figure 7 mpg, and calculate the use based on mileage...say fill up when you have gone about 300 miles (42 gallons), which should give you plenty of "spare fuel", and you can try and figure from there. I have a faulty gauge in my car, and I've gotten to where I don't really trust it, so base my use on miles. Just make sure to give yourself enough extra so you don't end up on the side of the road (like I did once). Also...double check on that fuel tank capacity....it may be wrong? good luck and Happy Camping

RE: Need advice. PA TO FLORIDA?

I did a quick Google Maps search....from Myersdale to Savannah, and it offered two options (in addition to an airline...LOL!!) You can basically go west and take I-77 down or go East and take I-81 south.....or take I-81 down towards Richmond, VA, and then cut over to I-95 for the remainder of the trip south. A lot will depend on what you want to see. I you are trying to get south as quickly as possible, it looks like western route down I-77 would be the quickest, and may also be the most scenic. I think that is what I would recommend, but I've never taken it, so can't really say for sure. Others will probably have better information. That sounds like a great truck for the trip...the Hemi should have the power you need. Have a great trip!!

RE: How do they do that?

Some folks will install a backer board inside the cabinet, and then mount the flat-screen to that. It really depends on how your unit is situated, but there are so many different brackets available now, you should be able to find something that will work.....but it may also require some cabinet modifications.

RE: Formaldehyde In Building Materials

Formaldehyde was used in a majority of RVs over the years. As mentioned, those in New Orleans had people complaining about the FEMA trailers. One of the problems with those trailers, and the reasons behind the problems, was that they were put into use days after they were coming off the assembly line. Typically, the formaldehyde will "air out" of the trailer in a few weeks, as a natural part of the product, but these units were needed right away, so they didn't sit on a dealership lot or at the mfgr's lot as would normally be the case...and I guess nobody really thought about it. A few folks complained of headaches and such, when living in the trailers, and they blamed the formaldehyde. Then, once a couple of people had issues, it spread like wild fire, and EVERYONE was trying to get something for nothing. As far as I know, most (if not all) of the trailers that were used for temporary housing have been sold and reused, or FEMA has them in storage for the next emergency....and they are fine now. It was that "scare" after the hurricane, that has many of the manufacturers saying that they are now using non-formaldehyde products...But honestly, the smells that make that "new car" smell or the "new" carpet smell are just chemicals that are gassing off....and 99% of them are harmless. Pressure treated lumber was also "dangerous", and not recommended for use inside homes, though plenty of people have done it, and once painted, it is the same as any other lumber. Not that it's much adoe about nothing, but like so many things, the media makes mountains out of mole hills.... Bottom line...if you find two trailers that have all the features you want, and they are priced differently (because one is "greener"), I still think I'd buy the cheaper one. and then donate the money I saved to a good charity, or better yet, use it to go camping!!
