RE: Add to camping to do list...

No camping to-do lists! to-do lists are for work days and weekends in the garage. Camping is for getting away from all that. To-do: NOTHING! lol

RE: What do you want in a campground?

I like sites backed up to a tree line. We usually camp with other family members and its nice to face campers towards each other. and close it off with the trucks near the road. keeps the kids corralled and we don't have people behind us. Also, i don't like to hear busy roads. No free ways, highways or local thru roads near us is best in my opinion. Other than that the bar is low. Maybe electric that doesn't go out 12 times a day.

RE: Sound like a good deal?

I'm no finance guru. but in my younger years if I had to finance something I would get the payments low. then make double or triple payments when ever I could. the if hard times came around I could still make the low payment. I was usually able to pay the thing off quite quickly and save on the interest. Jay D. This has been my philosophy. Its either that or go without.

RE: Towing with 4Runner

RE: wood weight

I love that as well when we camp local. ill go to the local fire wood guy and get a heaping bed full usually like the Thursday before we camp. Its nice to have a rip roaring fire going all weekend long. Less smoke than they guys burning one log at a time from those cheap bundles. Even if im not camping local i try to drive around for a bit when i get to where im going. theres always a local guy selling it at a better value than the camp ground or local gas stations.

RE: RVing YouTube videos???

searching for fix it video's is helpful. theres a few out there on backing up a trailer that are helpful. most of what i've stumbled upon are people rambling too much about nonsense because they are bored lol.

RE: Traveling with glass

RV shelves are cheaply built. Id be willing to wager on the shelf breaking before the pickle jar shatters.

RE: RV'ing 100 Years Ago

Saw the photos in another forum also and RV lifestyle is much more comfortable now. I fell like kids back then who goes to trip with their rv had more fun compared to kids I see when we are parked. Kids are always on the screen. I think that should when in an rv with your kids your rule should be no phones! we should enjoy each other's company and dance. We camp with our nephews alot. they'll hop out of the car and the first question is "can you hook us up to the wifi?" haha "NO!" thats not how campgrounds work boys! I enjoy that part!

RE: New to the RV World - Towing Mirrors Recommendation

Are they necessary for a 24'? My 20' trailer does just fine with stock non tow mirrors. sometimes those little bubbles you stick on the mirrors would come in handy with curbs. for the most part i don't see the benefit on a small/medium sized trailer. I would say wait for a trip or two and just adjust the stock mirrors as necessary. Then invest if you really have issues.

RE: RV sales are slipping

I look around as I travel and I think; Jeezee we have to be reaching a saturation point here pretty soon. There are RV's of every discription parked and stored everywhere. I'm talking about the already sold units parked in storage yards, house yards, fields, campgrounds, RV parks, driveways, and on the streets. There is just a huge amount of them out there. Then there are all the "beyond usable condition" units left on the side of back roads and in fields everywhere. Perhaps it is time the industry slowed a little. I make note of this as well. Brand new trucks and campers in most campsites. tons of campers clogging up the freeway on the weekends. I also live in an area with alot of lakes. Theres seems to be a saturation of $180k+ wakeboard/surf boats. Everyone has a brand new pontoon ect.... seems too good to be true!Saw a lot of the same right before the last big bust. ATV sales places all around town, toys for everyone, then poof. I used to snowmobile a lot more. We loved riding during the last recession. the trails were always empty. Hotels were cheap and plentiful. It was great! BUT i was early 20's and lived at home. The next one probably won't be so fun as an adult lol.

Can anyone not hear "Check your tires" in Mario andretti's voice?

RE: News of RV sales down leading indicator to a recession.

A lot of "business indicator" numbers are becoming meaningless to the "average Joe" who is not a business analyst. Did the RV sales drop compared to last year? 5 years ago? yesterday? last week? Wouldn't it be normal for RV sales to start slowing due to the season?? Heading into late summer and fall - I always thought it was normal for RV sales to fall. In the past it was considered normal - or so I thought. Right, like record low boat sales in january lol. "the sky is falling!" .....oh wait, the lakes are just frozen.

RE: How do you store your power supply extension cord

toss it in the storage compartment when leaving in a hurry. Forget about the unorganized mess of a storage compartment and swear alot the next time i go digging for it!

RE: Harbor Freight solar working great!!

Well done!! Lucky boys. Sounds like you are careful with juice -- if the battery is down to 12.5 after one night, you are probably a minimalist (like me). I bet you are not running the television much -- too much fun to be had outside!! I think rule number 1 is to not bring a TV camping with young kids! My wife and i laughed last time we took the nephews camping. They handed us tablets and said "can you hook us up to the WIFI?" lmao! thats not how it works kids!

Wall mount AC Leaking

My 2018 Zinger has a wall mount AC over the bed. It's been leaking since day one. We took it in under warranty and they "fixed" it but it still leaks. Im curious if anyone knows of common problems with the drip trays and mounting? Its on this weekends to do list. I'm sure ill figure something out when i get it all apart. im not under warranty any more and ill be damned if i let the morons at the RV dealership try and fix it. Not to mention the down time. Any input or advise is appreciated.

RE: Are these stickers needed??

Any need for the "Certified Green by TRA" and "RVIA" stickers on the side of my trailer? They both have ID #'s on them. I usually remove any decals and pin striping from my vehicles and now my trailer. I prefer the clean and advertisement free look. Thanks BrianIs there an easy way of getting rid of the "ghosting" after removing decals? I removed the name of our dealer they stuck on our TT. 4+ years later I can still see the outline of the letters. Only reason to leave them on would be if you ever wanted to sell it into Canada which I would guess unlikely... Are you thinking of removing the graphics too? Ours are starting to deteriorate slightly in a few spots at the edges due to shrinkage of the vinyl. I've seen a few RVs with graphics removed but it doesn't seem to look right without them. I wish I could remove ours because I know they're just going to get worse over time. We could have ordered painted on graphics when we ordered our TT at the dealer but we didn't want to spend the $$ at the time. Kinda wish we did now. I used WD40 and a blue shop towel. took the residue right off my aluminum sided trailer.

RE: ? "Easy" Way to Clean Patio Mat?

I wash mine after just about every trip where the site is dirt. just scrub it in the driveway with car soap. some times i have to flip it and hose it off a couple times to get all of the soap out. its held up well and looks brand new after 2 years.

RE: Hanging outdoor fan

i was looking into 12v wall mount fans. for like $50 to $75 dollars you can get something that looks decent and runs on the battery. alittle pricey for a fan but running on 12v is a plus. In case the camp ground loses power or you want to go boondocking you still have air flow.
