RE: Tie Downs

I've got such a deal for you. I have a 2011 Silverado long bed / regular cab truck with Torklift frame mounts that I don't need as I sold my TC. PM me to see if we can work a deal.

RE: A question for the mods

The mod probably thought it was a scam! But I saw it on local (Buffalo) & national news.

RE: Slide out awnings

I think I've got mine to tight, as they seem to put stress on the slide out mechanism. Otherwise they are great.

RE: Chrome vs IE vs Edge

I'm thinking of switching to Chrome as I HATE Bing! I prefer Google for browsing.

RE: Towing speed

Drive as fast as you possibly can, so we can see your crazy crash video on here!

RE: Deciphering Trailer tire date codes

If it has only 3 digits it is from the last century!

RE: 'What can you fill a barrel with to make it weigh less/'

To the retired cop. There may not be a law against running over limits, but will the insurance companies pay! They will look for any way not to pay.

RE: New Trailer Thoughts

I would recommend not getting a "Fiberglass" exterior from any manufacturer. That "great" looking skin is backed by wood! When moisture penetrates the seams you get the "dreaded" delamination,which will cost you at least 10% in resale value!!! (The exception is those rv's built with Azdel backing). So look at the "old" aluminum sided rv's.

RE: Campsites directly on Lake Ontario in Canada or NY

Beaches are going to be hard to find in NY, as the Joint Commission has decided to let the lake rise to record heights. This has washed away or flooded the shore line, beaches and homes!

RE: Figuring this power stuff has my head spinning

I just replaced my WFCO converter (that's the part that makes 12 vdc from the 120 vac when you are plugged in at a site,for your inside lights and some other things), with a Progressive Dynamics one. So far it has been great. P.S. an inverter changes 12 vdc to 120 vac.

RE: LED light strips under awning?

I just stuck them on the side of the TT, but I incased them in a rectanglular silicon tube! The first one I put up corroded and would not work right.

RE: Awning Motor

I had that issue and I replaced the motor, mine had a locking clutch in it that had to retract before the motor could turn. Check how much voltage is getting to the motor, I had low voltage. Over the eff last year I have replaced the battery and the converter! No more isdues.

RE: Be careful when replacing Porch Light Bulb

If you need/want a new lens then get a whole new fixture, or will be more waterproof.

RE: Battery Charging Issue

I just replaced & upgraded my "converter" to a 3 stage version. After a relatively easy install it went through all 3 stages, very happy! I changed it out I found my battery down to 6v after replacing it last year. I also had issues with low voltage in the TT, noticed dim lights. And a led flickering.

RE: Niagara area RV parks

The newest campground/resort is Branches of Niagara Campground & Resort, on Grand Island. Last time I looked they were competitive with KOA, a!so on GI. Don't forget to check on shuttles to the falls, some are free.

RE: Niagara area RV parks

There are 3 more SP along the shore of Lake Ontario, Golden Hill, Lake Side and Hamlin Beach, each is farther from the falls but all nice campgrounds. Then there's one of the best SP, Letchworth and Allegheny.

RE: New York State to Canada?

Best thing to do is check with the Boarder Patrol on both sides, US & CA, to get information directly from the government sites! Definitely NO GUNS into Canada! And NO HEMP PRODUCTS from Canada where it is leagl.
