RE: Looking for Recommendations on Floor Jacks

I have a smaller TT (21ft), but I found that my truck's jack (what it came with from the factory) works just fine - and it has an extendable arm for turning the jack.

RE: I refuse to double tow.

Wow. I'd like to watch them mounting that... I guess use a winch?

RE: black water tank treatments

We are weekend campers. I don't add anything to the black tank while camping, except we do dump wash water from dishes into the black tank. I do add chlorine when we get home after dumping. Splash of bleach... maybe 1/2 - 1 cup ... fill tank, let it sit for awhile (usually at least an hour), drain it. This keeps the camper from getting stinky when sitting in the hot summer sun between trips.

RE: Article - Best Campground in Every State

If anyone has trouble with that site, try using Google to view it... I use Firefox with AdBlock, and couldn't read the site. Mostly about tent camping. I used to read Outside magazine sort of regularly. Good long articles about all sorts of outdoor adventures and experiences. Leaned to one side of politics, but I thought they did a good job of not throwing that in your face. I don't know if the magazine has changed.

RE: Problem with U-Haul refill. Time replace my propane tanks?

Do propane tank refill places refill exchange tanks? I always assumed you need to bring an exchange tank back to an exchange place. Around me, exchanging a tank costs more than refilling one, and the exchanged tank is only 3/4 filled. After the initial cost of having to buy a tank, and if you use a lot of propane, refilling is a substantial cost savings.

RE: Problem with U-Haul refill. Time replace my propane tanks?

.... The tanks are 5 years old with a few dings. Is it time to replace the tanks? Yes. Pretty much any damage, and they have to be replaced according to whoever makes the regulations. As you found out, some places may still refill them just to make the customer happy. Is there a difference between "BBQ" propane tanks and "RV" propane tanks?

RE: Older trailer, smelly toilet

Sounds like you may have "fixed" your problem. I "sanitize" my tanks after most camping trips, especially when there is going to be a long time between trips. I pour in about a cup of chlorine bleach into black and grey tanks, then fill the tanks with water. Let them sit for about an hour. Drain tanks. This works for me, and I am able to do it at my house. Even when dumping and you don't have the time for full tanks to sit for awhile, just try adding some bleach after you dump and are rinsing the tanks. And, of course and always, use plenty of water with the black tank. I fill up the black tank just before dumping, even it isn't already full.

RE: Yamaha 2000iS and softstart with AC?

We borrowed a EU2000w Honda a couple years ago, it ran our AC fine for a weekend... but I shut off the ECO mode. Our friends who we borrowed the gen from did not know about the ECO mode - they had warned us that it might not work for our AC. So you can get by with a 2000w (although, running with ECO off sort of defeats the "quietness" of the gen). Having said that... last year we bought a EU3000 Honda. Wow, what a difference. Noticeably quieter, no need to shut of ECO mode, starts the AC fine, and doesn't even rev up to full RPM! We used it last week at a rustic state park, could barely hear it running. Neighbor campers with a 3400w Champion (not sure of exact model) were very much louder - not bad like a contractor gen, but certainly louder than our Honda. YES, bigger generators are better - and run quieter! Having said that... weight. The 2000w gens are usually "suitcase generators", light enough for one person to carry. 3000w gen is a two person job just to get it into the back of the truck. But it is worth it! So... I don't think I answered any questions with that post. See you camping!

RE: Electric bikes !!

$850, that sounds pretty good... is that an average price for an electric bicycle? I always thought they were over $1000.

RE: Upper New York Fall Trip

Looks like Lake George is a good distance from where you are staying... I was going to mention Fort Ticonderoga at the northern end. Very cool to visit if you are into history.

RE: Canada sizzling!

Hope you guys stay cool. Here in Connecticut we've had a cooler than normal Spring. We'll see how the summer shapes up!

2018? Did this just finish going through court or something?

RE: Stuck Caliper Piston

I always use the old brake pad to center the pistons to push in. Works every time.... LOL! After all these years, I never thought of that. I always seem to search for a more complicated solution!

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

EV battery swap. I usually would plan my refueling stops on my lunch and bathroom breaks and might be needing this situationally. This was first proposed by Tesla for semis which is apt for their need for quick turn-around and limited battery range. It's good to know there is somebody going into and this is already happening as this as this makes sense. Wasn't Tesla working on some sort of battery swap stations years ago?

RE: Avoid Silverton Colorado

So after reading this (very interesting, actually!) thread there is no ban yet? Still has to go to vote this fall?

RE: Does damp rid have a place in rving in winter/cooler temps

Make sure you open a window when you turn on the vent fans. When we camp, I always have the bathroom roof vent opened an inch or two and a window in the living area opened an inch to allow for ventilation. Your propane wall heater will draw power, but it is just a fan - Do you have a multiple battery solar system? If not, it may be something to look into so you have more stored power available.

RE: Portable Camping Stove Design Issue

A lot of people, including me, give up on the portable stove that comes with the camper. Think about a Weber, Coleman, or similar portable camping stove. You may be happier in the long run.

Hmmm... those look pretty good.

RE: Thoughts on WD hitch need

... So far I have only found one hitch system, made by Curt, that has a tongue weight rating of 1500 lbs. ?? A lot of hitches have two "tongue weights", one without weight distributing bars attached and one with the bars. You should find plenty of hitches with tongue weight rating of 1500lbs or more with WD bars attached. The Reese hitch I have is 1500lbs (or more, I forget) with the WD bars attached. The receiver attached to your truck probably also has two weight ratings.

RE: Rv-ers prefer Duramax?

Larry, Not sure Cummins can handle that H90. Maybe one of them Vesper scooters, or a mini bike from late 60's with a 5-10 horizontal Briggs powering it. Marty A friend of mine decades ago (pre- 10 years old) had a Sears mini bike with a Briggs on it. Funnest dam thing for a kid, loved that thing!
