RE: leveling blocks

I've had 2 sets of Lynx levelers for several years, and broke exactly 1 block, (my own fault),trying to level on rock. But as to your question, absolutely do both tires on a side, otherwise, you have all the weight on 1 tire.

RE: Best Honey wagon

I'm not sure if im posting this in the right place. whats the best honey wagon to spend your money on? when i say best, to me that means ease of use and durability. also what size do you reccommend. both my black and grey tanks are 40 gallons and i think a 40 gallon wagon will be a little to much for me to pull. i'm leary of pulling it behind my truck because i wont be able to see it. sometime in the near future im going to be doing an extended stay in the camper and the place im looking at staying has a signifigant savings using a water/electric only site and a site with full hookups. also, my last trip to a thousand trails had me in an electric/water site even though i booked full hookups. they charged me $25 for a honeywagon service. if that happens again a honeywagon will pay for itself fairly quickly.There wouldn't be an "AGAIN" with me, if I book a full hookup site, that's exactly what I expect.

RE: Snow Driving Stereo-types

It doesn't matter where you're from, North or South, driving on Ice safely is hard to do, there are 2 factions involved in winter driving, those from the South that don't have enough experience with driving on it (snow or ice), and then there are Some from the North that THINK they can drive on it, but can't, having lived in Northern NY & Va., I've learned that there is no generic rule that covers everyone.

RE: Shenandoah National Park Loft Mtn and Big Meadows Info

Okay now some specifics about sites. Anyone that has been enough times to remember Big Meadows best sites what is your feedback about site 190, 202, and 212? I am concerned about getting a large truck and camper in and out of the sites and being able to open slides and awning? Any feedback?In Big Meadow, we stayed in F-203 which is huge, though I don't think you'll have any trouble getting into any of the sites, Notice the open grass area to the right in the photo, that is NOT another site, so no one will be moving in on that side. http://images53.fotki.com/v1519/photos/7/1474187/7706096/Picture001-vi.jpg height=450 width=600 In Loft Mtn, try A loop, nice pull through's with great separation for privacy, any site From A-14 to A-23 should work, with A-19 being the biggest. https://www.nps.gov/shen/planyourvisit/upload/loft_mtn_cg_combined_web_2016.pdf A-19 Loft Mtn. http://images44.fotki.com/v118/photos/7/1474187/10044976/IMG_5039-vi.jpg height=450 width=600 http://images49.fotki.com/v630/photos/7/1474187/10044976/IMG_5041-vi.jpg height=450 width=600

RE: RV Club

Thanks, I will stick to P.A and EscapeesWhile I have PA, If you are 62 years old (or more) the America The Beautiful Senior Pass is the best bang for your buck, $10 for lifetime. what if you want to stop at private campgrounds? bumpyThat's when I use PA, IF it's accepted, Occasionally use Good Sam, but look for the other 2 first.

RE: Name your rig?

I call our Southwind, the Southwind. I'm so boring. :(Oh, i don't think so, Mine came with a name, Forester, saw no reason to change it, not into naming inanimate objects.

RE: Corp lakes access page?

I've used this site for years, http://corpslakes.usace.army.mil/visitors/visitors.cfm but now I see it too has been relocated but it doesn't say where to. :h I've never understood this policy, "We have something that Works great.....Let's change it" :S :h

RE: Your Favorite Boondocking Pics

"Bad things are happening to the forests in much of the Western US." It's not only the west, in many states in the east, and west it's the Emerald Ash Borer, years ago in the east, it was the Dutch Elm Disease that devastated the Elm trees. :(

RE: Ceiling Replacement

I haven't seen you post this in the forester subforum at the Forest River site. You would probably have more luck here StanActually, I did post it there, under ( General Tech & Repair), it has 85 views & 0 replies.

Ceiling Replacement

I have a Forester with the Soft Touch Ceiling, due to leak damage,(the roof has been repaired) I need to replace the ceiling in a couple areas, when I pulled the soft ceiling down, some came off pretty easily, other big areas, the vinyl fabric came off, leaving the foam backing firmly in place. I've tried scraping it with a wide putty knife, and a razor type scraper, both to no avail, is there a chemical that will dissolve this foam, or at least make it easier to remove, this is Not the same type of foam used as carpet backing. Has anyone ever tried to replace a Soft Touch ceiling?

RE: Too Much Seafoam?

I load up Seafoam in tractors, mowers etc and they tend to sputter a bit when starting - that doesn't last and has never seemed to hurt anything. One can of Seafoam is suppose to treat 16 gallons so I doubt two can's would "overload" any MH.I don't know what size can you have, or where you got it, but the can I use (16 oz),says it treats UP TO 25 Gallons, I put 2 in my 55 gal. tank.

RE: Road Trip Playlists?

I was just wondering if anyone has certain songs they like when on the road between destinations. I came across a selection at Disney California Adventure in the Smoke Jumpers cafe that I thought brought back the feeling. At least for me anyway. I think it sets a wonderful mood, hopefully the wife will agree when I play it on our next trip to DCA. Merle Haggard - Swinging DoorsBill Monroe - Y'all ComeRusty and Doug Kershaw - So Lovely BabyBuck Owens - Open Up Your HeartJean Shepard - Heart, we did all that we couldWaylon Jennings - My Baby walks all over meJohnny Cash - Ring of FireEddy Arnold - There's been a change in meJune Carter Cash and Carl Smith - Time's a WastinHank Williams - Rootie TootieRose Maddox - Honky Tonkin'Wynn Stewart - Wishful ThinkingHank Williams - Move it on overPatsy Cline - Walkin After MidnightWhile I would agree with the Artists in your list, I would have a few different tunes by them.

RE: RVers who buy up campsites

It's a first come, first serve, dog-eat-dog world we live in. If they paid the "rent" they can do anything they want with the site, even if that means not showing up. If you want the site, reserve it for some time in the future so you are guaranteed to have it. It's just the way it is. Someone simply beat you to it! Not true if they did not show up within 24 hours to occupy the site there reservation should be voided.Oh well, I take it you never had a long delay due to unexpected road construction detours, a road accident blocking the road for hours or a breakdown preventing you from arriving on time or even until the next day. :R Not everything always goes according to plan. :@Not 5 days worth! and as far as a major breakdown, a simple phone call to cancel would have been appropriate. :S

RE: To camp or not camp at WMart ?

It's not camping if your at Walmart. Where over-nighters should go??? How about a campground? Yah, thats what I want, $30-$40 after running around to find a campground at 10 PM, just to sleep for 6 hours +/-, NO THANKS. I do agree with Bumpyroad, you don't CAMP at a WalMart, you pull in, park (out of the way), you dont deploy awnings, lawn chairs, grills, or anything else, you don't put out slides, (unless you can't get to your bed room without doing so), you're there to sleep, NOT camp.

RE: Calss C motorhome - On board ONAN generator

If it is plugged into a power pedestal, I can still start the generator without unhooking. Why would you need the generator when plugged in?:?:hI normally don't when in a campground, at home it stays plugged in, but once every month, I go out & exercise the generator.

RE: Calss C motorhome - On board ONAN generator

My '07 has an ATS, & glad of it, I just don't like the idea of that "plug & play" system. Just seems like an unnecessary PITA. Well let's see....... When you unplug the cord from the shore power pole, what do you do with it ?? We do the same thing, coil it up in a compartment but the last two seconds is consumed by plugging it into the generator outlet. Yep a real hassle.....not. ;)It is for me as I don't have to do anything, other than hit the Start switch, whether plugged in or not. When boondocking or dry camping, I don't unwind the power cord or have to plug it into the generator. If it is plugged into a power pedestal, I can still start the generator without unhooking.

RE: slide outs

Thanks. I love thinking of questions late at night and waking up to answers. We just called the dealer and everything is ready so our sis in law is driving us 60 miles to pick it up. It has been torture waiting 4 weeks for these guys to get it ready. Plan is to gas up a mile from home. We'll run the genset and spend the night aboard so I can get an accurate GPH burn on it. We like the notion of boondocking or boon-squatting at free places. We have the weekend to load the interior and pack stuff in the basement storage. Knowing that we pick up today has lifted a heavy leaden pall from our lives. I think the experience of buying and waiting made us anxious and on top of the crazy goings on politically we've been on the edge of crazy. Stress measurements dropped like a brick when we got off the phone with the dealer. Don't worry, our wifi is great in the driveway so I can still ask late night questions. Thanks to everybody for taking the time to help. When I actually know something, I'll give back.GPH on the generator will depend on size, a 4.0 Onan gas generator will be about 1/2 GPH +/- depending on what load you have on, but the size of that Winny in your signiture, may well have a 5.5 or 7.
