RE: Downsizing - How much?

We have a 25 rear kitchen with slide dinette only. We have spent a little over 2 months in it. The front bedroom has a door which is good since I often stay up and read with the cat while wife goes to bed earlier. We have enough storage to lose things. Easily towed with our half ton. My requisite was not sleeping on a pull out couch, the extra bedroom was a plus. Also, there is no exit door for the bedroom, a friend has a rear living room version but he has a door exiting the bedroom and it really cuts into the usable space.

RE: Advice on Trailer to be left on property

If you have any slope, level the camper, set the drains to the slope, run a 12" deep trench, install perforated 4" on 3/4" minus cover with porous membrane and refill. Before any jump in to criticize, this could be range and patties aren't buried. Gravel is good for a base. I would go with a 1" minus and top with ground limestone. This will give a pretty firm base and a smooth top. If you don't need A/C you can get by with the genny, A/C will break the bank. Power near the pond will be appreciated in the future even if you locate to a different area. Think, lights, pavilion for picnics aerator for fish during high heat or freezing weather. Once you have a meter base you can drag the power on your own poles wherever you wish. BTDT

RE: Travel trailer for taller person

Our first (a 14' hitch to bumper)had 6' 1" ceiling with the A/C in the middle by the stove. It took 2 days camping and a bandaid or two to remember to duck going from aft head to fwd. couch. ;-)

RE: Anderson WDH hitch installation

If needed you can turn the hitch so the ell is up.

RE: Slide Out Mechanisms

Rack and pinion. When all else fails, get out the crank.

RE: Another "Can I Tow This" question.....

I have a Ram 5.7 two wheel drive so a bit more capacity and use the Andersen hitch but it is an older trailer which is heavier. I have never had a problem with towing in more than at least 10,000 miles of towing. Go for it. Back when I was first interested people towed 30' Airstreams with 1962 Oldsmobiles. Not that that was optimum but it was normal. FWIW. Tim

RE: Toilet pipe

Dremel tool with the flexible extens├Čon, use the circle saw blade and cut the pipe an inch or two higher and repeat until it extends about 1/4 of the depth of the tank. By cutting in small increments there is a good chance of flushing them without blocking the discharge pipe. FWIW Sounds like a good way to trade one problem for another. With that much opening can you do 4 vertical cuts with a long keyhole saw then make the circumference cuts? If so they should pass the outlet. A wet vac hose would fit in the dump pipe and might be able to pull them out. Alternatively if they don't bounce too far out of the vertical drop one might get them from the top. Agreed that two quarters is probably the limit to trust to flow so the procedure would be tedious but, is that worse than the current problem? Good luck

RE: 2002 Dutchman Captiva 249QRB

Outside outlet? Can you see the wiring from inside the cabinets?

RE: Low cold air flow

Remove the vent cover, reach into the duct to find obstruction. If you can't find it by reach use a vac hose. Each outlet should have flow. Only the assembler knows what lies beyond the bend.

RE: need some WDH advice

Andersen hitch will make you happy. Quiet, easy to hitch and it works.
