RE: Has anyone added an extra water tank to RV roof

Portsmouth Island, NC just south of Ocracoke. Yes, private ferry service (Morris Marina). Costs me $375 due to size. Only 20+ fishermen on the entire 14-miles of beach.....heaven! And, all the beautiful shells you'd ever expect to find. I brought home probably 100 and most just washed up in front of my fishing spot. Conchs, sand dollars, whelks, etc. I think they did hookup the shower for some non-potable water but certainly check before going! A full tank of fuel is definitely a must due to driving on soft sand and using generator in hot weather! I was lucky, most nights dipped into the lower 70's so just opened the windows. There are a lot of FLIES so keep windows closed with screens! If the wind dies down, they appear out of nowhere.

RE: Has anyone added an extra water tank to RV roof

I went to a deserted island for 8 days (no houses/roads) and carried an extra supply of water using 1-gallon jugs of water at $.60/each at Walmart. I just put 15 in the rear storage compartment and 15 up over the front cab bedroom. Extra long filler spout and added to fresh water tank as needed. Worked like a charm and no added expense to try and rig-up a special tank system.

RE: Any Cobra Passport Owners Out There?

All of you "Cobra Boy's" should exchange emails/cell phone numbers so you can reach out to one another if and when the need arises. Sounds like a select few owners and looks like you've all found 3-other guys already.

RE: Are all RV's noisy and rattle?

I put the silver bubble wrap on all the insides of my cabinets, moved the grill to the storage bind below the camper, and put foam padding between the dishes. Used an old flannel sheet and cut to size to wrap around the pots/pans so they don't jiggle. Used to be unable to talk while driving; now it's just like a normal car ride. It's amazing what can be accomplished in a few hours. The screened door was a big culprit...never used it much so I just cut it off the hinges. Keep things out of the shower floor....move them to the center of the bed or above on the cabover bed. Same goes for the kitchen sink!

RE: Hood Cover for Ford E450

Packing/Moving blankets from Lowe's are pretty heavy with built-in padding. Could just release hook latch and put blanket over hood and lower it backdown to secure in place when parked.

RE: Fighting local zoning ordinances that hurt RV owners

When I moved to my HOA community, was told no RV's in driveway or on your property, period! Been here 9 years and last year, I actually read the covenants and informed the HOA board that I could, in fact, have an RV on my property. They again read only the first few lines stating "no RV may be left in front driveway or on street". I stated that is correct, however, keep reading. The next lines stated "an RV may be kept on the property provided it's in the rear yard and out of general view from the adjacent neighbors and in an enclosed carport/garage". Their reply was "oh, I've never read that part of the covenants". This is the head of the board who answers calls from homeowners about restrictions! I promptly constructed my RV garage in my rear yard and am currently the only one to do so in a development with 1500+ houses around a 4-mile lake. It pays to READ THE COVENANTS/RESTRICTIONS. Wish I had done that 9 years ago.

RE: It's official

Excellent donation! My brother gave his life in Beirut, 1983 bombing and amazing how many folks believe terrorism started 9/11. God Bless your son for the ultimate service and know he will be watching over your extended travels!

RE: Which Michelin for Class C

I've been using the XPS Rib's for about 13 years and 90k miles. Yes, steelwalls but I have enjoyed the ride and no noise. I use them since I airdown to 20psi on the beaches and needed the extra protection of the sidewall construction, so, my opinion is very subjective versus normal RV experiences. I think they handle very well in snow, rain and normal driving conditions as well. I haven't had any other tires on my RV, so don't have anything to compare to other brands. Good luck.

RE: Satellite TV .....pros/cons? Tired of tv infomercials!!

Haha, yes Rob! Just the only channels I get in rural areas seems to be Home Shopping Channels like HSN, QVC, etc. I think I'll try the Sling or Hulu options and see how that goes for awhile. As long as I have cell service, I'm assuming these TV apps will work using my BluRay player. I'm going to check with my internet/cable/phone provider to make sure what is needed and that my unlimited time isn't an issue. Thanks all for the comments!

Satellite TV .....pros/cons? Tired of tv infomercials!!

Removed the crankup antenna years ago and moved to modern digital antenna and just installed a 360 degree digital one. All I seem to get are the shopping channels or PBS unless I'm in a real city and get some of the local channels. I'm usually on the beach or in the rural country and want to have reliable TV most of the time. Anyone using a satellite system, and if so, comments on ease of use, reliability and finally cost-per-month for the service. Thanks in advance.

Motorcraft Mercon transmission fluid

Have a 2002 E450 chassis and service manual shows for super duty transmission, I need just plain "Mercon" fluid. Can't seem to find this at several auto parts stores. Googled and found this: aftermarketNews StaffByaftermarketNews StaffonJune 18, 2007 DEARBORN, MI – Ford Customer Service Division (FCSD) has announced MERCON V as the replacement for MERCON Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF). AMN_House_5Minutes_300x250_2020 Effective July 1, the production and licensing for MERCON will cease. Automatic transmissions, power steering systems and manual transmissions previously requiring MERCON must, as of July 1, be serviced with MERCON V. “All transmissions which recommended using MERCON ATF can now be serviced with MERCON V,” said Ron Romano, FCSD Service Lubricants Technical Expert. “MERCON V is a tighter specification which delivers better anti-oxidation, anti-wear and anti-shudder properties. It also provides increased protection against deposits, rust and corrosion. All of this helps ensure customers receive a better fluid,” said Romano. Just checking to ensure I use the right product. I've also got a transfer case on this 4x4 and don't want to put the wrong fluid in. Any advise is appreciated!

RE: Extra propane tank; can it be hooked up to fill port in RV?

Without a diagram, I'm not sure where it's supposed to hookup since I was thinking it went into the fill valve.....I'll look at my RV tomorrow to see if it makes sense. Yeah, wasn't really thinking I'd empty my main propane tank, however, it's an hour ferry ride over to the island at $350 and just didn't want to run into some bad weather and have to worry about needing more fuel. I'm even carrying an extra 20-gallons of water just in case my 40 gals. runs low. OK.....just went out and looked. Take a wrench and unscrewed regulator hose going into main tank valve and basically bypass the main tank using the new hose I ordered and connect to the 4 gallon external tank, correct?

Extra propane tank; can it be hooked up to fill port in RV?

You know, the 4-gallon propane tanks sold by Lowe's? Just wondering if there is a direct-connection using the fill port for the permanent RV tank? Or does something need to be modified in order to temporarily use this additional propane in case I run out? Heading to a deserted island for 8-days of surf-fishing and don't want to run out since there are no roads, houses or stores. May have to use some heating at night, as well as frig/water heater but those don't take much fuel. Thanks in advance!

RE: Should I get the extended service plan

Noted the WATER PUMP was not in the list of covered items?? My son was purchasing an new Z06 Corvette and looked at their premium coverage plan and the water pump was NOT on list! I told them if that fails, the motor could overheat and damage the engine. Sales agent just looked at me and said well it's not covered for that. Your plans states "lubricated" things (ie: oil/trans fluids), so, guessing you would be OUT OF LUCK if your engine overheats and causes damage! I'll bet the radiator was also not covered. They will use every little trick and wording to NOT PAY for what really happens in the real world. I'd save your own $$$ for any issues!!

RE: Replacement for Onan 4000

Had my Onan rebuilt after 1400 hours on it since I boondock a lot. Cost about $1800 for everything and now have 1700 hours. I turn it on to run microwave while cooking and couldn't imagine having to go outside in weather to pull start the generator(s) each time. As with all mechanical things, you gotta use'em or lose'em.....sitting idle just doesn't work well. Wonder why Honda stopped making generators??.....if it was an upgrade to an Onan, why is it no longer available? I love my honda truck and grass mowers and just a sincere question.....why don't they do RV generators?
