RE: Love my Mr Heater Hunting Buddy

I have the Heating Buddy. I tried using it, but the fumes it gave off was awful. Anybody else have issues with the fumes it produces? Smells Like those Old Coleman Catalyic tub heaters. Maybe my unit is bad or something. Have never had a problem with fumes on either one of our Heater Buddy models.

RE: New Source of TV While on the Road

What about casting from your phone to the TV? If you have a smart TV you can do this and no cable needed. According to Samsung, one needs a $36 "Miracast" adapter in order to wirelessly connect the phone to the TV. The adapter plugs into the phone then (probably Wi-Fi) connects to the TV. I already had the HDMI cable and only spent $12 for the generic (NOT Samsung) dongle. This video is Exactly what I am doing. Uhh, no, we cast at home all the time from our Samsung phones to our Samsung Smart TV without that adapter.

RE: Residential Refrigerator – Good or avoid?

My thoughts on this even though we don't have a residential fridge in our FW - I've talked to our RV tech on this because I've thought about one in the future when we do more extended traveling. Residential fridges, he said have a lot of issues when repeatedly on the road. Not sure what he meant, but he doesn't like them. He prefers for operation the side by side RV fridges, but he said when they go out, they cost $5k to replace. For us, we will live with our 12cf RV fridge. It runs well and we're happy with it. Even on extended trips now, we have a lot of room for groceries. The only time we seem to run out of space is when we camp with our family and need the extra food. In this case, we pack along a cooler and put other items in it than can be in a cooler.

RE: Electric Cord Reel

Let us know if that fixes your issue. We have an electric cord reel and have never had a problem with it, but it's still good to know if your solution worked.

RE: Love my Mr Heater Hunting Buddy

profdant139 - that irrational fear is ok. It's somewhat why we only use ours during the day. We have the small one too that we use in our tent trailer and run it all night with a zipped flap down on one corner, but hubby still doesn't like to run these when we sleep so he gets up and shuts it off.

RE: Alone or in a group?

Mostly alone or with immediate family. We've done the group thing and it's hard, or near impossible, to relax.

RE: Love my Mr Heater Hunting Buddy

We too like ours. Heats us out. We mainly use it during the day when we're awake, then use the onboard heater set to 45 to conserve on propane. We like it colder at night anyway.

RE: Pets and National Parks

We too cut the day shorter and take more trips out. When we went to Zion, Bryce, and Mesa Verde, we boarded our pets because we took day hikes there. In some rare cases, such as when we went to Natural Bridges National Monument, I stayed in the truck with the dogs while hubby hiked to the bottom to take photos. Sometimes when it's a short hike to a site, we take turns going and staying with the dogs. At the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, we parked the truck in the shade with the big dogs in their crates in the back, then took the Maltese in her soft sided crate slung over my shoulder, while we hiked around the trails at the top.

RE: 5er hitch options RAM MegaCab w/6'4" bed - Solitude 310GK

The TrailerSaver BD3 is easily removed from the bed too. It comes apart in sections and is easy to put back together.

RE: 5er hitch options RAM MegaCab w/6'4" bed - Solitude 310GK

Of the two offered if I had to choose I would use the ANDERSEN steel version. Still "IF" I had a SB Truck I would want a slider for that 1 in 100 chance of needing it. You don't know what you are missing short bed Ram 3500 and the steel Andersen :B Or a short bed Ford with a Pullrite Superglide ! :B That would be a great second choice :B The only choice is a TrailerSaver :B

RE: How much water to ad to black tank when starting out.?

You might also check to make sure she isn’t leaving the black tank valve open all the time. That will cause problems for sure. :):) Bingo! When hooked up at a park, leave your tank valve closed and don't open it till you dump it prior to leaving. Leaving the valve open allows liquids to flow through and the solids to sit. You need all the liquids in it to move the solids.

RE: Tent Camping Forum

I am heading to Florida in January. I will camp at Johnathan Dickson for 10 days, on the canal at St Lucie for ten days(have never been able to get an rv site there but tent sites are easier to book). I park a small cargo trailer across from my site that has solar power and will set up a tent on the site. I will spend a few days on the keys visiting old friends and head north to the National Forest campgrounds with the springs. I like wandering about, meeting different folks, enjoying different areas. My friends do long term rentals and seem happy but I am not that sedate yet! The cargo trailer is modest, inexpensive and easy to tow. It has the comfort of a bed for short stays, solar power for frig, chargers,fan. Rough in cold weather if no shore power available but there are hotels in that case! I like to wind down at Hilton Head in an efficiency apartment on the way north. Tenting makes a long trip doable! Happy Holidays Everyone! Sounds like a good time. Enjoy.

RE: 5er hitch options RAM MegaCab w/6'4" bed - Solitude 310GK

Yes they are a quality hitch. Nice they finally are offering a puck system. I run Factory rear air ride, TrailAir with TriGlide kingpin along with B&W puck Companion. Can’t imagine ride any better with my setup carrying about 6k pin and tugging 24K RV. They've had the puck system. We bought our TS in 2010.

RE: No Warranty on your RV? Don't buy new?

For me buying a few years older means getting a better built unit, but you have to still do your homework. The quality in new is not there as it was years back.

RE: 5er hitch options RAM MegaCab w/6'4" bed - Solitude 310GK

OK.. so, conclusion is that the best attachment to the bed of the truck is using the 4 pucks and NOT the center gooseneck ball? Hands Down!!! That's what we have with the Hensley BD3.

RE: senior pass

Besides, why should you and I pay less than a hard working family? This would be a great argument when the social security checks equal that of a hard working family. I agree! Retirees have limited income. I waited a long time to get my pass when I turned 62, but had to pay the $80, the new rate. Still, that's a great price for a lifetime. I feel that working all our lives, we've earned retirement and the perks that come with it. If they are going to change it, they should make it retroactive, but not sure if they could keep track.

RE: No Warranty on your RV? Don't buy new?

If I was buying an RV, I'd buy late model used. Let the original owner deal with warranty items. I did buy new and consider myself lucky I had no warranty issues but that isn't the norm, rather the exception. We own one of the exceptions too. We bought our FW brand new in 2010 and it was well made. No warranty issues. Due to the quality, we are keeping it. If we had to buy again, we would buy a late, well-built model.
