RE: How many states has your dog been too?

Safi(age 11) has been in 49 states and all Canadian provinces except Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Nunavut, and Northwest Territories. (Nunavut is going to be a problem for a fifth-wheel.)

RE: Question about freshwater tank use

I like to use water from the fresh tank and top it up as needed, which is usually about every third day. That means that water in the fresh tank is always quite fresh. If the RV has been sitting in storage for a few weeks, then at the first campsite I drain the fresh tank (hooking to camp water while it drains) and refill it. (This assumes that the first campsite is in an area where there is an ample supply of water.)

RE: How fast do the gray and black tanks fill

If you use the campground facilities for showering and your fresh water for dish washing a couple of times a day then your grey tank should be OK for the week. Black tank should be ok, but toilet flushes will use a good bit of fresh water, so you might use the campground toilet to conserve your fresh water.

RE: TPMS question?

I tow a 35' fifth-wheel with a long-bed crewcab. My TST sensors all reach the receiver. But before that I used a different brand (can't remember which one), and it needed a booster in the trailer.

RE: Who would of guessed

Seems simple enough -- the pickup has more weight on the drive axle than the unloaded semi. The amount you can pull is a function of the weight on the drive axle(s).

How to repair loose trim?

A short piece of trim is trying to come loose. It's a strip of soft plastic. I would appreciate a tip on how to secure it -- a marine adhesive, perhaps? https://i.imgur.com/8l0ydTSl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/RPwwOGnl.jpg

RE: List some RV movies

"Pauli", about a parrot who travels with Gena Rowlands in an old motorhome from New Jersey hoping to reach the Grand Canyon, staring Tony Shalhoub. No profanity, no nude sex, no violence, so if those are what you need then don't bother with it.

RE: Planning a trip to southeastern Oklahoma

Queen Wilhelmina State Park, five miles from Oklahoma and on the high ridge called the Winding Stair, has paved sites and full hookups. It is on the Talimena Scenic drive and is well worth a couple of days. Nearby, the Heavener Runestone is worth a visit. (Even if the runes are not genuine Viking runes, they are a darned good imitation.)

RE: TPMS valve stems issue

Many tire stores have metal stems: Discount Tire, for example.

RE: Help adding satellite to my RV

Like you, I found that my Tailgater satellite had to be connectedly directly to the receiver. My solution was to take the cable to the satellite input of the booster, unplug it, and connect it directly to the receiver. (If necessary, use an extension co-ax cable to reach the receiver.)

RE: Exhuast Gas sensor on F350 6.7

Semi-limp mode is a lot better than what I experienced with my 2008 6.4 diesel. On a long trip in 2018, the truck shut down completely. The engine suddenly quit; there was no warning, no error message. Tow-truck time. The local dealer found that an emissions-system sensor had failed.

RE: Trailer Life Forum going belly up?

I'm not so concerned about the number of posts as long as I get good information. I have gotten good answers to my last few questions, and I am happy with that. As to responding to other's posts, I try to comment only when I have something useful to say. (But I can't seem to resist making a 'cute' comment once in a while.) RV magazine seems to be aimed mostly at those new to rving.

In the Ozarks, I am asked whether I want any AR in my TAR. (AR rhymes with TAR.)

RE: SPAM-alama-dingdong

You've got my mouth watering just reading about it. (I'm not above Spam. I like Spam salad, made just like ham salad.) Note: When I saw "SPAM" in all capital letters, my first thought was the unwanted phone-call kind.

RE: How to charge a battery

To compare converter versus generator versus charger, you could measure the voltage across your battery terminals while charging with each and see which one produces the highest voltage.

RE: Full hook up?

I hook up the sewer only to dump, usually after about 5 days. I notice that many campers hook up their sewer hoses upon arrival. I can't understand why anyone would do that. On water: I like to use the unit's own water tank, topping it up as needed. That keeps the tank's water always fresh.

RE: Auxiliary fuel tank

I had a 100-gallon Transfer-Flow tank in a long-bed 2008 Ford F350 diesel. One small problem (if you even call it that) was that the amount of fuel on the display was always less than what was in the tank -- I would have about 20 gallons left when it displayed 0 gallons. Another slight problem was that leaves and debris that collected in the one-inch space behind the tank were difficult to remove. I recently traded for a 2021 long-bed diesel, and want to get another Transfer-Flow when one becomes available for the 2021 Fords. I do it for peace-of-mind; so that I can tow for three for four days without constantly having to worry about fuel; so that I can reach Yellowstone (for example) at the end of a driving day and still enjoy driving around for the next couple of days without having to think about visiting a station. To me, that's worth 50 cents a day spread out over ten years. You do NOT get a transfer tank to for the purpose of finding cheaper fuel (you never save enough to get your money back), but a side benefit is that you have the option of topping-up whenever you happen to see a good price, or you can keep on trucking though a state where fuel is more expensive. But, as I said, that is secondary to peace-of-mind. Metal transfer tanks will have a good deal of water condensation. I put a water-separation filter in the line coming out of the transfer tank. That helped to keep water of out the main tank and not overtax the truck's own water-separation filter.

RE: Back before cellphones

Remember when you could pick up a payphone, put in a dime, dial 0, ask 'information' for the number of Joe Doakes in Peoria, ask the operator to call Joe Doakes person-to-person, and if Joe Doakes was not able to come to the phone then you did not pay for the call and got your dime back.

Ultra-easy summer pie

No baking or heating -- a good hot-weather dessert. 1 Graham pie crust (these are not frozen -- look in baking section of supermarket -- do NOT bake or heat the crust) 1 can crushed pineapple, throughly drained 1 8-oz cool whip, thawed Mix pineapple and cool whip. Fill pie crust with mixture. Chill and serve. Note that you do not bake a Graham pie crust. We have not yet experimented with other fillings such as blueberry, strawberry, you name it. After slicing you may see that some liquid has sunk to the bottom, but just pour it off before serving.
