RE: New Lance 855 Anyone else having so many problems?

I'm sure your post will be moved to its proper place. In the meantime, all I can say is, you probably made a good move in not getting a slide with this mess.

RE: Vibe 279 RBS Ouside stud locations

With all due respect to the OP and his issue; I just cant help myself here I must say that I hope the trend to put TV's (and stereos) on the OUTSIDE of TT's am MH's DIES a QUICK DEATH. The last thing I want to see and hear in a Park or CG is someones idea of entertainment emanating from under their awning while the flickering blue light of the TV washes across my site and the noise of Situation comedy or Police Procedurals assaults my senses. I really believe these things should be kept inside. There is no way to watch a TV outside without disturbing your neighbors. x2

RE: Need a short triple bunk trailer

Just a suggestion, since you are totally new to RVing. Whatever you decide on purchasing, shoot for 30% off MSRP. Don't settle for a dealer's offer of 10%.

RE: Advice on 30 amp Install at Home

Well, I tried to buy a receptacle at Lowe's, an RV dealer and a plumbing outlet that has a lot of electrical parts. Nada. A lot were close, but none were right, like the TT30 mentioned here. I'm waiting to talk to Mark, my electrician, to see if he has one or if I should order online and hope it arrives in time. I have a medical procedure tomorrow (6:45 a.m.!) and probably will be silent for several days.

RE: Advice on 30 amp Install at Home

I really am impressed at all the helpful advice, but Soundguy woke me up to something I hadn't thought of, but my electrician probably would have caught. We live where the summer daytime temperatures rarely hit 80 mid day and nights drop into the low 40s, so no one has ac. As a result we have 50 amp service in the home. And for us at least, every major energy using appliance runs on propane. So even if th next rig has 50 amp service, which I'm sure it will, a 30 amp install will suffice. Most of our camping is in the desert nearby and wintering in the Phoenix area. So we miss not having 50 amp for more ac in the summer campouts and not being able to run our WH, microwave and toaster, etc., at the same time while full timing in winter. So 30 amp is what I'll have put in. And guests with their own RVs will have to do with that.

RE: Place to spend summer

I was recently told that the Pueblo South KOA in Colorado City is rated 3rd best KOA in the country. It doesn't surprise me at all. We've stayed there many times over the past five years and the owners and the facilities are great. It's just 20 miles south of Pueblo, another 35 to Colorado Springs & Manitou Springs with the Incline train up to the top of Pikes Peak, Cave of the Winds, Garden of the Gods and if you head west a half day's drive gets you into serious mountain and ski country. Ski towns are still fun in the summer. There's so much to see and do that half of Texas descends on us every summer!

No comments but I'm paying attention!

RE: Advice on 30 amp Install at Home

After pos ting I realized I should probably go 50 amp so it's ready for our next RV. This for our own TT that guests can use as a guest house. Glad I didn't already order the TT30. It's really more for me than them - I like my privacy in the wee hours. And I did catch the one post that would have it wired for a dryer, 220. No problem there, it'll be 120.

RE: Advice on 30 amp Install at Home

Thanks to all for such quick responses! My guy is fully licensed, etc., and has a great reputation in the area. I will make sure I see 120 before he leaves and will have the TT30 receptacle before he comes. And I'll offer him the diagrams and other things you've recommended. He won't turn his nose up, I know. Only problem I've had with his work was the 220 he ran to the room above the garage for the baseboard heaters. I suspect my cutting the line with the auger may have had something to do with that. LOL

Advice on 30 amp Install at Home

Our electrician will be coming soon for needed work, and while here I want to add 30 amp service so kids can use it when visiting and have more power available than what I have now, which is using an adapter and standard residential duplex receptacle. He's excellent but does residential and commercial work, not RV stuff. I've read here and elsewhere about problems arising due to the differences in RV wiring. He won't be touching the RV itself, but still, is there anything he should know now that might otherwise catch him by surprise and cause trouble when I plug the power cord into the new receptacle?

RE: Tv external wiring

IMO you're better off without one. The two TTs we've had had them, and they were a headache. As suggested, and drill a hole and run your own RG6.

RE: Warning! Caution! Warning!

The most dangerous feature of thousands of things we buy is the packaging. You can seriously cut yourself either on the packaging itself or the knives it takes to open them. No warnings there!

RE: Warning! Caution! Warning!

But many instructions have additional warnings on nearly every page.

Warning! Caution! Warning!

I'm fed up with wading through never ending safety instructions that are themselves dangerous because they can prevent us from focusing while reading instructions on things like chain saws. And I'm really fed up with dire warnings on things I'd never suspect could injure or kill me, like the $5 aluminum clam shell hamburger press that cautioned: Don't operate this equipment around children! Got that, Mom? Better you send little Sally out to play in traffic while you mash that burger. Or the auto focus camera that came with a folded paper of instructions that began with SIX folds explaining how it could be the end of life as I had heretofore known it if I did this or that. A camera? So have you come across any annoying examples of overdone warnings?

RE: TT or Fifth Wheel-opinions wanted

While I wouldn't want to get into the pickup capacity argument, I would tell you that a 30' TT with a good WD system properly installed will tow very nicely with a 250. A fiver would, too, if suited for your truck. The fives are usually taller, if that matters to you. They also often cost more, again, if that's a factor you'd consider. New or used is up to you and your tolerance for buying someone elses castoff. Myself, I'd be more upset paying new rig price and getting a pot load of problems than if I'd purchased used, where you are more likely to expect it to not be perfect. But if you've looked at a hundred and still aren't even sure which type you prefer, you may not be all that interested in making a purchase.

$20 Solar Battery Maintainer

I had one of these el cheapo gadgets laying around. So when we left a car in the garage for a few months while away, I plugged it into the cigar lighter and set the panel near a window. That lighter is alive all the time. On returning the battery was so drained the keyless entry wouldn't respond. The car has sat for longer periods with no charger and not had a problem, both with this battery and the older one it replaced. Could the charger have been draining the battery when the garage was dark? Should the clips for the battery terminals have been used? Or should I just throw that thing away?

RE: Spell check

My advice would be to be old guy. That way you probably went to schools that taught us the difference between advice and advise, to and too and two, and lose and loose, not to mention there and their and they're. Not a big deal I suppose.

RE: dealing with an insurance claim

As mentioned, if subrogation is available to you, that might be your best course. If not, and you have to leave the country, a lawyer is probably your Plan B. That could lead to filing suit against the park, which should wake up their insurer. Good luck.

RE: ventless or vented washer dryer combo?

If BB TX is right it looks like ventless may = more $ and more stuff to fail.

RE: Tires

Passenger tires don't belong on light trucks, pulling or not, IMHO. But many use them anyway.
