RE: Rain water in my basement. 2003 Bigfoot 2500

I had a leak I couldn't find in my fiberglass camper. It turned out to be the hinge on the propane door not sealed properly when they riveted the hinge to the compartment door frame. I drilled the rivets out and resealed the holes and used screws to reset and fasten back on. It stopped the leak.

RE: is weldwood contact adhesive strong enough?

Hi Joe, Titebond Construction adhesive is really good stuff. Sold at Parr lumber, I know. HD does not have this good of adhesive. I reinforced my sagging cabover using the Titebond product. Has held on rough roads for two years now. 7 years after glueing 2x4's to concrete a basement wall, you couldn't get them loose as they were splitting apart to get them off. It good stuff, but you need to place the pieces together right away and apply pressure. The stuff really works.

RE: Reddog1 "Wayne"

Wayne and I did not get along. I'm sure he was helpful to many folks here. I hope his TC in the sky was ready, waiting and defect free. Wayne was cool.... he showed a generous good will even toward folks like me. God Bless him.

RE: Conversation with Goodyear about Marathon tires

I won't be buying Goodyears any longer as any company that tries getting out of what they are responsible for has no business being in the tire business with folks lives on the highway. That's a fact.

RE: Heads up to anyone coming to NY

It's my understanding that masks and distancing are not going to cut it. It is only going to prolong it until this whole thing plays out just like other deadly flu or plagues it eventually goes away

RE: Help with delamination problem

If you remove the marker light you will most likely find the two wires coming out ( thru a drilled hole) are not sealed. They are just run thru a hole and not caulked around the wires, but I would still remove all screws to the awning and light and put sealant/ caulking on the threads and reinstall. You might do a few screws the same way holding the roof trim metal above.

RE: What do you keep in your camper.

Most important is a good Bottle Jack and a good bottle of Jack.

RE: Tie-down systems performance/safety vs cost

I never needed Fast Guns because when removing the camper I leave everything attached to the camper and just pull the pin on all 4 TorkLifts and slide out the receivers and leave them hang. The jacks keep each receiver from turning into the wheels while they hang for loading or unloading. I use sailboat hardware turnbuckles because they have a 7,000 lb breaking strength. Only ones I could find that were rated. Just another way of looking at it....

RE: Coronavirus practical issues

I used the number of infected vs mortality rate coming out of China since they have had the infection longer than anywhere else.

RE: Coronavirus practical issues

I did look up the information and divided out number of cases vs number of deaths and the percentages of mortality I found are very similar with common flu. Some years death rates are higher and some lower.I don't do political... it's a waist of time listening to that stuff. Furthermore how does immunity develop in the human body? Not only by staying healthy, not smoking etc, but by putting the immune system to work. That doesn't mean you should go out and inhale contagons on purpose. Isolate yourself from the world for a length of time and you may not be very resistant to anything afterward.

RE: Coronavirus practical issues

I don't understand did someone with all knowledge suddenly say this flu is the end of the world or something? It's weird because it's no worse than a common yearly flu season flu.

RE: Fed Cuts Rates: Will RV Rates Follow?

Dealers make a yield spread which is full payment for the difference in interest rate over the life of the loan. Often making as much or more on the interest spread than the units markup. Example..... dealer writes up a sales contract for you to pay so much for the price of the unit at a set rate of interest. Then when the time is ripe to bundle several loans to sell to the lender, making it more attractive, the dealer negotiates a lower interest rate causing what is called a yield spread or additional profit on each of the loan contracts. That yield spread is paid in full to the dealer for each of the loan contracts. another way of making money and also easier for you to make a deal all in one.

RE: Graveside Boondocking?

I find the safest places are the ones with lots of warning signs about big bears around. They're perfect spots uncrowded etc. Like to carry extra bear warning signs since they work so well.

RE: Registration Rant

To me the whole thing about this subject is there are entities that think they can charge beyond a reasonable amount taking advantage of those paying. On the other hand, most people do understand business and it's usual level of fairness....that fees or expenses are normally based on actual costs plus a reasonable amount of profit. Fees in Oregon have doubled every ten years which used to be $20 for 2 yrs back in the late 70's. If you made the same $20 an hour back then you were doing well, not getting rich but well. Now if you made the same 185 dollars that registration costs today, you would be able to save well over two thirds of your income. I say this for another way to look at it. Based on this discussion, what do some of you think is a most reasonable amount for truck registration?

RE: Registration Rant

It's disgusting how they rip you off on Vehicle Registration here in California. The stupid weight fees, and all of the liberal idiots running the State. I have thought many times about moving out of state myself. It's here in Oregon too. They can charge whatever they want, do not have to be competitive nor closely related to anything reasonable because if you don't pay they then get you for more with fines. I just paid more for permits and fees to build a starter home than the entire framing package cost. That's including using real plywood, good plywood, included in that package is the roof trusses as well. Its excessive. The Gv't and the medical industry have no competition.

RE: Campnab

I had no Idea things were getting that tough to get a site. We visited Banff/ Jasper 12 times and never had to reserve at anytime. My first time there was 1971 when I hitch hiked with a backpack,tent, clean clothes and a hair cut from Monterey. He he..... a doctor picked mE up in Portland and flew me over the Cascades in his airplane to NW Washington. Then Border guard gave me a ride to the trans Canada Highway. I can't tell you how fun it was in those days. Wow that sounds pretty great! I'm not sure you could get away with that these days. You can can get a site in Banff easier than Jasper, the biggest campground in Japser has been closed since 2018 so that makes it more difficult. Almost impossible if you want any hookups. Things have changed! Thanks Sam22, they had youth hostels back then in Banff/ Jasper. For 2 bucks you got a shower a cot and granola breakfast in the morning. Oh and a ride to town in the van and ride back at midnite. There were a lot of nice gals I met from around the world traveling as I did. It was fun in those days. Such good memories.

RE: Portland Oregon Parks question

Family friends relocated to Portland and did the same thing you want to do. They stayed at the Janzen Beach RV Park on the Columbia River. They have monthly rates but not sure of any time limit. I know they were there for a few months. Nice park on the Oregon side about five miles west of the airport. Depending on time of day could be a very short commute. Close to shopping and restaurants also. Nice area but heavy traffic and loud aircraft always flying over. Used to have a boat moored right there across from the safeway.

RE: asking for suggestions/opinions

I've never owned a fifth wheel but two my buds I camp with do. They like them enough to stay with them. I personally like the way the master suite is up higher off by itself. I think they are cool that way not just a flat. I would watch for quite a nice layout though, spend time looking for quality, not so big, but most of all not one of the very tall units I see running down the road.

RE: Portland Oregon Parks question

I been around these areas talked about since 78. Crime wise, traffic wise, nicer area wise, shopping wise and access to great recreation wise Fairview is not bad. Troutdale would be a tiny bit better. All other areas now a days would be wise to avoid for various reasons.
