RE: RV Lock

If your door hinge is on the right and lock is on the left (as are nearly all towable RVs), this is what you want to order: Link Rob

RE: Propane tank locks for my TT

I have never heard of anyone having a propane tank stolen in 40 years of camping I have. The jerks were hitting a park at night and stealing tanks from multiple RVs. Rob

RE: Newbie needs help with WiFi!

Read and research here - they are the gurus: RVMobileInternet.com Rob This is exactly what I need thank you. Are you a member? I’m wondering if I sign up will they give me a direct consult. I was up for hours last night reading all the free material lol. No - I am not a member, but I find their free stuff to be very useful for newbies. We have a grandfathered, truly unlimited plan on a Verizon hot-spot so we're covered. As pianotuna said, what other questions do you have? Rob

RE: New Lance 960 non slide..

I read the article earlier today. Looks really nice, although I don't know about plastic windows working well in cold climates (condensation). Plastic is a poorer conductor of heat than is glass - should be better. I never had condensation problems with the Lexan ports and windows on my sailboats (and that's a humid environment...). Rob

RE: What did you wake up to this morning?

Sunny and 64F... heading for a high of 73 (Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD). I really wish I had changed into my shorts and sandals before taking my wife to her dental appointment (I did as soon as we got back to the rig!). Rob

RE: Adding tank heaters for winter use.

Unfortunately, your Wolf Pup is nowhere near a four-season RV. I would think that tanks would be fairly far down on the list of concerns. One of the most beneficial things you could do would be to skirt the trailer (1" foam board and HVAC tape would be very good) and put an auxiliary heat source under the trailer inside the skirting. That would help protect both the tanks and the plumbing. A heated water hose would be good. If you have sewer hookup, let the tanks fill before emptying them - don't leave them open. The mass of fluid in the tanks takes a lot longer to freeze than water hoses and plumbing underneath the trailer. Good luck - and thanks to your wife for what she's doing (from a retired Army Nurse).

RE: Collapsible ladder?

I used to carry a step ladder strapped to the rear ladder on the fiver. Got tired of that and now carry one of these in the basement: Amazon link Rob

RE: Conclusion made: 95% of all TT's are a crapshoot

Grand Design has several Transcend XPLOR models under $30K. We've not owned a Transcend, but we've owned two Grand Design fifth wheels (a Reflection and a Solitude) and have have very good look with their build quality and very few (small) warranty issues. GD has stepped up to the plate in each situation. Rob

RE: Best campground for Kayak fishing???

Any of the Corps campgrounds or state parks on either side (GA or SC) of Clarks Hill Lake NW of Augusta, GA, are great places to camp and fish from a kayak. If you're active or retired military, there's even a very nice Army resort with multiple camping areas, a marina, etc., called Pointes West on the Georgia side. Rob EDIT: Sorry - I missed the "intercoastal/bay/ocean" part. My response wasn't of much use to you.

RE: Water Heater Temp

If you have an outside "shower," make sure both of those valves are closed. If not, that faucet acts as a mixer and all you'll get is warm water inside. Rob

RE: TV remotes

We use a Logitech Harmony remote. Depending on model, they will control any number of devices. We use it for a Roku smart TV, Polk Audio sound bar (with wireless sub), Wally Dish receiver and a Blu-ray/DVD player. It controls all of them seamlessly and sets itself according to the activity you select. The remote is programmable using your PC and downloads the codes from Logitech's database. Rob x2 on the Logitech harmony remote. It controls my tv, my surround sound, my x-box, my wii, Blue-ray, and my roku. The only downside to the harmony remote is last I looked it cost $400. That's for the RF/IR version. The regular IR versions are about $50. Rob

RE: General Question on Size

Sounds like your selling dealership is in to profits rather than customer service or education. One thing I don't see in the discussion here is payload. Payload is how much weight (people, baggage, and tongue weight for the trailer) you can put on your tow vehicle. There should be a a sticker on the driver's door frame that says something like "Weight of passengers and cargo should not exceed..." with a number. The weight of passengers, your weight distributing hitch, anything else that you load in the SUV, and the tongue weight of the trailer should not exceed that number on the door frame sticker - regardless of whether or not the GVWR of the trailer is within the "Maximum towing capacity" listed for your specific vehicle. Use 13% of the trailer's GVWR for an estimated tongue weight: .13 x 7,837 = 1,018 lbs. If the Escalade does not have the payload available to handle the weights above, it's probably not safe - and will shorten the life expectancy of your SUV. Personally, I would not pull a 36' travel trailer with an SUV. Others will have differing opinions. Rob

RE: New laptop?

I replaced my older, larger laptop (HDD, optical drive, etc.) with a Lenovo ideapad 330S. It has a solid-state drive (not a hard disc drive with moving parts), a good amount of storage, a reasonably fast processor, a nice screen, and a regular keyboard with a numeric keypad. The only thing it doesn't have is moving parts (no HDD nor optical drive). My wife has a late-model HP 17" with a large HDD, big screen, plenty of memory, etc... the ideapad boot/reboot about 20 times faster than her HP - all because of the solid state drive vs. the hard drive (similar processors). Being a Windows PC, it will run any of the Windows software your old one would. I couldn't be happier with it. Rob

RE: Need help on winterizing RV with residential fridge

What make/model is your residential fridge? If it's the Samsung RF18xxx, the icemaker has a test cycle button. Activate that several times while the lines are pressurized with antifreeze. Other makes/models may have similar features. Rob
