RE: This is just what we need

Great for attracting 2 million moths and other insects which in turn draw in the bats. :) Put it in front of the neighbors camper! HA!

RE: Broken/ leaking exhaust manifold bolts

I just used a couple clamps on my half ton with a 5.3. Can't speak for how they'll hold up over time but my exhaust leak is fixed. It seems like a halfass fix but it works and i don't need to take the head off.

RE: Best top coat/wax for RV's

Since this is a new RV, I would recommend Meguiar's M6332 Flagship Premium Marine Wax. It's a simple application like any other wax but has a high shine, excellent water repelling attributes, long wearing and one of the highest UV protection levels. It would be like combining Meguiar's G18216 Ultimate Liquid Wax with Meguiar's 56 Pure RV Fiberglass Wax together. But, you can also use just the Ultimate or RV Pure wax alone and get fantastic results. I just find the added superior UV protection worth the extra $2. Im an advocate of flagship on all of my toys. My boats have always looked amazing. Same with my snowmobiles. It gives it that wet shiny finish.

RE: Anyone know how rear air bags work

Generally speaking, with airbags, if there is only ONE air fitting to feed both bags, when you go around curves, and the motor home leans, it will force air from one of the bags over to the other side. A lot of people feel it's better that each bag has it's own separate air line. In addition to preventing this, it allows you to put more air into one side or the other to adjust for side-to-side weight differences. BTW, is there air in them now? How much? Is your motor home level? That's the best way. I've got a slammed project truck with air ride suspension and each bag has separate valves for this exact reason.

RE: What's the one thing that you have but hardly EVER use?

RE: Low point drain line caps nightmare

I went and bought plastic valves from the plumbing section at lowes and screwed them onto the 3/4" fittings where the caps go. No more need for caps. Just turn the valves.

RE: HEY! Where's the manual?

Manuals have been replaced with PDF's. Go to the website of the appliance you need the manual for and it shouldn't be too hard to find.

RE: Stocking/Furnishing a New Camper

RE: Travel Trailer Buying/Financing Questions

I should have stated that I’m not interested in anything David Ramsey would say. Yes I could save money and go camping 5-10 years from now. My goal however, is to get out camping with my daughter while she’s young and get her interested in the outdoors. I’ve looked at used, but I’ve got enough used junk laying around that I have to work on all the time. I don’t want to be fixing things when I’m trying to take a relaxing trip. I’ve looked at rates from my credit union and will possibly use them. I have an 800+ credit score. My car will be paid off soon and I have plenty of money to make the payments. I agree with the junk laying around comment. we financed and bought new because i want vacation to be vacation. eliminate the chance of the "everything i own is junk" anger moments lol. I want to relax. not stress over things that are broken.

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 Not normal on an RV board, especially this one. You need a 1 ton diesel dually to pull a 4×8 landscaping trailer hauling 2 sheets of styrofoam. I agree with the post about 30' air streams and 62 olds. Half tons and trailer hitches have come a long way. You can do more with less truck in 2019. most people drive their tow vehicle daily. you don't want to park a 1 ton dually at the office on a daily basis.

RE: new to the TT world

i was waiting until we got to the camp ground to fill my first few trips. we got set up one friday night, camper leveled, plugged in, unhitched and as i was putting the awning out the wife says "did you fill the water tank?" had to break down and go fill up. Now i realize that the extra small fraction of an MPG isn't worth feeling like a dumb*ss lol. filling the water tank is now part of my procedure the night before we leave.

RE: Driving your RV alone

We used to have a motor home and now we have a trailer. When we camp locally i love getting there and setting up by myself. On the long trips it usually starts a fight with my better half. I've got my own routine/set up procedure id rather do by myself. plus you get the extra hour or so to yourself before everyone shows up. its nice to have everything set up for when the rest of the group arrives. The worst is with a group full of old timers. You end up with too many people giving orders. Not enough people working lol.

RE: New to Trailer camping, what are some must haves, and wants

Make a couple shake down runs at a near by camp ground. You can either run to the store or head back home to grab something. After a couple of trips you'll have a good idea of what you want. I end up tailoring my camper to the trip now. If were leaving for a week or so i brink everything and the kitchen sink. if its a quick weekend up north where we wont be doing much hanging out at the camper then i pack light. Clothes, coffee provisions and maybe breakfast stuff. Might even want to toss a pack of hotdogs and smore stuff in the fridge. on long trips i pack everything. I even go through my tool box in the garage. bring things i don't need. Some trips are for relaxing at the camp ground and some trips with the camper were just using it as a hotel room on wheels. think about your trip as your packing. Grab things from the house. If you keep finding yourself saying "ah ****, that pot is in the camper" buy another next time you go out. If you find yourself constantly annoyed by something you never use and its always in the way at the camp sited then take it out. Alot of items i thought id need get tossed.

RE: New Truck Lets You See Through Your Trailer

How long before someone with that system changes lanes on top of a car since it looks like they don’t have a trailer? Maybe the lane change warning system will respond. If your car still has side and rear view mirrors i don't think thats an issues.
