RE: Campspreading

Just strike up a conversation about something uncomfortable and they will avoid your campsite like the plague. Just channel your inner cousin Eddie. :B

RE: DRV water intrusion

It's not the same company anymore, just in name.

RE: Rubber roof repair

Agree with file a insurance claim and fix it correctly. If it leaks your RV will be salvage with no resell value. Even if you manage to cobble it where it doesn't leak good luck trying to sell it.

RE: Dogs

I always take my Collie camping that's one of the many reasons I purchased a RV. That said I'm annoyed by barking dogs that are left alone as well. If I go to town or on the boat the Collie goes with me. If it's to hot he stays in the camper with the A/C on and television and he takes a nap. He will bark if you hit the side of the RV or knock on the door, otherwise he could care less.

RE: Roof repair

Charlesin GA- I'm in the process of doing the same thing with a project trailer. Three places were penetrated with a tree branch. I had to rebuild 5 rafters. I also reinforced all the rafters sistering 2x2 and 1x2 for the arh and redecking the trailer. I'm having to do the work outside. Still have to install the roof membrane. I also took out the cheap skylight and tiny bath fan and will install two fantastic fan's. Since my awning was broke it's in the scrap pile with the tv antenna, I kept the radio antenna. Will also install a new roof A/C, old one was damaged by the branch.

RE: Please read the signs....

Both should be observed everywhere, but aren't. I remember my dad teaching me to drive back in 1964 and telling me to pull over and let folks behind you past, AND the left lane is for passing, cruise in the right lane. But clearly not everyone's dad told them these things. Here on the Left Coast, only the left lane thing is in the law. Still, lots of folks ignore it and cruise slowly in the left lane, especially when contemplating a left turn (never mind, 50 miles up the road). There are times I wish I was a State Trooper and could pull 'em over and educate them a little.It's the law in Kansas as well and they will ticket left lane loiterers, exception being in a city. I was very happy when this law was passed. I still get peeved when you come across two semis with governors driving side by side for miles on end 10 mph under the speed limit.

RE: Anchor bolts or boats

My understanding is New Madrid was one of the most powerful earthquake in North America since people started to migrate to this country from Europe. Would be totally catastrophic in modern times. With all the injection wells in Oklahoma we feel small quakes very regularly in Kansas now.

RE: Anchor bolts or boats

Or the New Madrid fault that would be even more catastrophic in the midwest where nothing is built to earthquake standards. Let's not forget the continental shelf off of Africa that could destroy the Eastern seaboard. Might just be a asteroid that wipes out mankind.

RE: Naps

Naps are a great way to get out of the heat of the day as well.

RE: Campspreading

No. But once in Montana a whole colony of Mennonites showed up in really old RVs and took over the place. They were odd but pretty quiet. Several Mennonite families rented multiple cabins at the campground where my seasonal is at. The kids really enjoyed the pedal boats and canoes. When my Collies favorite toy was lost in the lake they searched for it and found it under a dock. I gave them each a can of pop. They were extremely respectful and seem to have a good time.

RE: Seasonal Site

Where I have my seasonal several people started out in a motorhome then usually purchased a TT or 5er for additional room. Starting out with what you have is a great way to see if a seasonal is for you without making a large investment. Going on 13 years at the seasonal. I still travel and own another RV for this.

RE: Plastic Fenders

I had one bad fender where a tree branch broke it. The Icon fit was very close on my Keystone. They have a lot of fenders to sort through to get the correct dimensions. I predrilled the holes in the fender hopefully to prevent cracks. Not cheap though, with shipping for one fender was $180.

RE: Generator Obsrevations.

I know one thing, if Honda or Yamahuzie came out with a replacement for our onboard Onan Marquis Gold 7000, this Onan would have the fluids drained out of it and become a boat anchor. Onans are like old women, need so much TLC. Most Onan issues I read of involve fuel. Ethanol and stale gas seem to be at the route of lots of issues. My lp Onan has had no issuesSame thing if you use Ethanol or stale gas in a Honda or Yamaha or any other generator for that matter and let it sit.

Onans are like old women, need so much TLC.Honda had a liquid cooled built in RV generator at one time. Was discontinued several years ago. I have 3 built in Onan's and have had zero issue with any of them. I use zero ethanol gasoline with a can of Seafoam for a stabilizer and cleaner for 20 gallons of gas.

RE: There's a reason to get rid of six-year-old tires.

RE: 6 people in an F350

No, the only way to haul 6 people is to get a front bench seat. Every person has to have a seat belt as others have stated.

RE: A simple idea

Two more suggestions: first, tell her how great she's doing, as often as you can. Pretty soon, you will both start to believe it. ;) Second, don't undertake a complicated backing-up job when you are hungry or thirsty. We often "snack up" as we are nearing our destination to build up our blood sugar for the upcoming ordeal.You camp in the middle of no where. All you have to do is shut the vehicle off.:B

RE: Does anyone make 'em anymore?

Craigslist or ebay might have a vintage unit. Some of them didn't have holding tanks so no shower of toliet. Most had a stove, refrigerator, heater and gas lights if you go back far enough.

RE: Gas TV for a year long trip

My main concerns are range with the gas engine, the length of time we will be on the road, and towing in the mountains.None of these should be a particular concern. Either truck will work fine.I would agree. If going gas I would wait for the new 7.3 L gas motor.
