RE: Why won't the borders allow rvs across?

and some people just don't think a closed border applies to them Only the Canadian border is closed, and that is by the Canadians. The southern border is wide open to illegals.

RE: Why won't the borders allow rvs across?

I have tried to tell the government that rvs should be allowed across the border. We are in homes on wheels. We have food, washroom facilities, and entertainment but instead the USA will allow people to pile into an airplane from Canada and go to the United States but being isolated in an RV isn't good enough. I tried to get a petition going, but it went nowhere. Any ideas? Understand. the gov isn't really following the science. They pick and choose what they want to happen. Notice tens of thousands of illegal aliens cross, and are shipped all over the country. But you can't drive your RV across. You alone in your RV are too much of a hazzard. Pardon me for introducing logic into this mess, but you’re saying the US government is actively allowing illegal immigrants free passage to drive over the border now? not drive. But walk. they are crossing by the tens of thousands, and are getting free air, and bus travel to hundreds of US cities, at our expense, and none of them have been vaccinated. It's on the news every day. Wanna guess whay there is a surge is covid cases. Yep. it is being imported thru illigals.

RE: Why do I keep blowing out tires on my truck?

You don't curb them do you? Hitting curbs with tires will kill them. and that is on the tire that hits curbs more than the others

RE: Go ahead...give it a try....

Vaccines work, whether you like that idea or not. IF they do, and I think they do. Then why would a vaccinated person care if some one else doesn't. Them not being vaccinated does NOT affect a vacced person at all. It's their choice if they want to take the chance or not. None of my business

RE: Go ahead...give it a try....

Anti-vaxers....The driving force of another worldwide shutdown. Why? You had your shot. Why do you care if some one else didn't? After all you are protected.

RE: Go ahead...give it a try....

Wonder why they aren't vaccinating the illegal aliens before they ship them all over the country????? You would think that would be the first thing they would do.

RE: Travelling is not getting easier

We just go where we want to. We don't worry about any restrictions. There are none at the CGs we go to. And there are none at the motels we go to either. Where y'all going that has restrictions? Someone mentioned Florida. According to what I can find. Florida has no restrictions? Nor does any state around us. I could only find 3 states with any restrictions at all. And one person worried about being around unvaccinated folks. Honestly. If you are vaccinated, why do you care if some one else isn't. after all. You are protected by yours, OR ARE YOU. If you aren't. then there is no need to take it. Folks live life. Don't frett, and hide from a virus that is 99.8% survivable. Life is too short to waste hiding from the boogie man.

RE: Toilet Tissue...

Honestly guys. Its not going to be in there long enough to dissolve any way. So it does not really matter. Just use plenty of water, and you will be good. Hint. If you are only dumping every 4 or 5 days. You aren't using enough water. My 30 gal tank only lasts 2 of us 2 1/2 days.

RE: tow dolly brakes

Thing about some surge brake setups. You can't back up to well. some come with a pin to install to keep the brakes from coming on when backing. Other wise the tongue can compress and activate the surge brakes.

RE: [SOLVED] Buy if slide out is sluggish?

Lots of people talking about the battery. So the question is. Was it plugged into shore power? If it was. Then the battery is not the problem. It will work with a dead battery, or no battery if plugged to shore power.

RE: peculiar brake situation with Prodigy P3

Ok, thanks, I guess the P3's reading of 5.6A tells me it is in range overall, right? Both magnets are actuating (it's a single axle). I checked with a compass, for what that's worth. If 2.3 ohms is excessive, that seems to indicate that the shop messed something up. But since the brakes work, does it matter? Maybe I should just ignore the warning message. However, if 2.3 ohms is an acceptable readout, then I'd be inclined to think maybe the controller is bad. I'm thinking it does not show a fault while sitting still, is because the controler is not doing any thing. Why? Because the P3 is a enertia based controler. When sitting still it is waiting for a signal. Pressing the brake pedal while sitting still will not send a current to the trailer. Activating the lever will. But only the amount of current you have dialed into the controler. and since it worked as advertised before they worked on it. I would say something did not get hooked back up correctly.

RE: Travel trailer battery not charging

The cheap red key type of disconnect switches can fail, so check voltage on both sides of the switch. Yes they fail, and even when they seem to work. sometimes they aren't making solid contact, and the battery won't charge.

RE: Portable track vehicle for backing trailers uo

I'll just use my truck. I can put it any where I want it with my truck. You should see how I have to park it at home. I have to back out of the road, between 2 trees, then turn it go go down beside the house, then turn it to go in thru the gate, then turn it the other way to back it under the camper port. Like I said. I can put it any where I want it. But then I started backing trailers at a young age. My first real job was backing new boats into the warehouse, and turning them to park side, by side once inside. But as self proclaimed awesome of a trailer backer you are, you can’t get a trailer in where the truck and trailer won’t fit. Like our old house with a side loader garage. Not a chance of getting the boat in the garage with the truck. But with our CJ 5 with a front hitch, could jack knife it right in and back out again. come and try my parking spot, and then we will talk. and yeah. I'm pretty awesome at backing. Living in town with the houses pretty close together, and the backyard being the only place I can keep it. I have to be. I have to make 3 90 degree lefts, and a 90 degree right to get it under the camper port. Also having learned backing boats worth tens of thousands into a ware house, and parking them side by side. Kind of gave me incentive. they didn't let just any one do it. But then I've had 50 years of practice. Thing is. every one has different talents. One of mine is driving. I was taught by the best. I know there are lots of people on here that are much better at lots of things than me.

RE: Is Lance the “gold” standard

For what it's worth, I've been happy with my two Fun Finder/Cruiser RV trailers. They are not perfect, but they have been rugged and reliable. And they are much less expensive than some other brands. Dollar for dollar, I am satisfied. But they don't look as great as an Airstream. ;) But I bet they have more room in them. airstreams are pretty cramped.

RE: Is Lance the “gold” standard

IMO, there are NO mass-produced RV's worthy of a 'gold standard' designation. Everything is pretty much built from relatively low quality components -- enough to get the job done, but nothing ever over-the-top. And of course, we as Americans, are not going to pay the price for an RV that might truly be the gold standard, because there's too much other stuff on the market that, on the surface, looks just fine and will serve our needs until something goes wrong or falls apart due to the materials and workmanship we've settled for --- then we can get on this forum and bellyache about it! :C Happy travels! You won't here me bellyache about my APEX. It has done everything I bought it for, with minimal maint, as did my 2004 Pioneer. I bought them to camp in, to keep me dry, and to follow me around. and they both did it with no protest.

RE: Is Lance the “gold” standard

Honestly. If the Lance travel trailers are no better than the Lance truck campers. They are not any thing to brag about.

RE: TARS

Marathon, or Endurance? At any rate 5 year old tars are just looking for a place to blow out.

RE: open, screen emergency exit window for ventilation?

Has anyone tried to build a screen of some kind, and use it so you can open the 'emergency exit' window in their RV for ventilation? We are trying to find a way to be able to open the back emergency exit window in back bedroom of our RV for more ventilation. My initial thought is, we'd build a frame of some kind the exact size of the window with a screen in it. Basically build a screen for the window, that you'd put in place with velcro only when you open the window. You'd prop the window open, then put the screen over it (on the inside) using velcro or something to hold it in place. I have already verified, that the window *is* hinged at the top, and it will not fall out when we open it like some older style emergency exit windows used to do. Has anyone ever done anything like this, or is this a totally ridiculous idea? I did it to my Pioneer. I didn't build a frame though. I just stuck velcro to the inside of the window, cut screen, velcroed it, and stuck it on. Works great. Now the new TT has screen on the E window. So i didn't have to do anything to open it.
