RE: 1st night camping in our yard, 2023.01.24

Forget the rug, at least the large ones. I think you will find a small maybe 3x4 will take care of the grass problem. You might find that over the door hooks work the best, as the doors themselves are not the best built. Water meter never heard of but then that may mean nothing. I would however trade the water meter in for a water pressure gauge. Sounds like you have a handle on it. Sometimes to much planning takes the fun out of Rving.

RE: Covers. Pros and cons?

I have never had a cover so probably not one to answer your question. My reasoning for no cover is, how many rv's at dealer lots and across the country that spend years without a cover. I believe good maintenance is far better than a cover. Just my thoughts good luck

RE: Roadside Assistance

I have GS and have for more years than I can remember. I have used them a few times for tire changes and one stupid one of running out of diesel. I truely believe there are pros and cons to both of the ones you mentioned along with the others. There are only so many tow trucks in a given area so you know they all respond to each service. I can not say what FMCA policy is as far as towing goes. I feel GS towing policy is one of the best. Good Luck

RE: North or Northwest of Milwaukee and points north

Can not help on Milwaukee but if you do decide to visit Madison the Lake Farm County park is pretty good. https://parks-lwrd.countyofdane.com/park/William-G-Lunney-Lake-Farm If you go to Door County I prefer staying at Hyland Court https://www.hylandcourt.com/ There are alot of nice parks in Door County both private and state. Its easy to spend a week in Door County

RE: Flying J / Pilot to install megachargers for med/heavy trks

I have been on this forum for many many years and have seen less sensitive post be deleted. It seems not only does the "administrator" allow it but encourages this thread to continue. It seems a new standard has been set, so long to a friendly forum setting. Its just to bad!

RE: How does 50 amp work?

I am far from a electrician so I may not get the total picture correct. 50 amp has 2 hot wires, and either 1 or 2 ground. Each 50amp wire carries 110v (actually 120) so adding the two together gives you 220. If you look at your breaker box you will see that the 50amp breaker has two switches, that are tied together is some mannor. Most RVs at the breaker box take and split the 50amp to verious other breakers. Your house does the same thing. It brings in either 100 or 200 amp and at breaker box breaks it down to the various other breakers in the house. I hope a good electrician joins and can explain better.

RE: snap pads

Just giving you something to think about. I went the other route as I wanted to increase the size of my jacks foot print. The snap pads did not do that, at least for me. I went with bigfoot outrigger pads https://outriggerpads.com/for-rvs/ Yes you have to place them and retrieve them so there is alittle work involved, but for me its worth it. The size of the foot print was the important thing, as we were parked on grass one time during a rain storm. The jacks were on lego blocks at the time. The legos and jacks went into the soil about 2 in. Thats when I decided to increase foot print.

RE: Acess to back of outside tv

Somewhere most likely reaching from the bottom are two swivel hooks, one on each side. They could move up down or side side its just a matter of finding them. They are there!

RE: UP with hookups

We travel Northern Minnesota, UP, and Door County most every summer. Have to get out of the great humidity in SW MO. We like our FHU sites, so most state, county, city parks are out. In looking at different places to its important to us to have reservations. I really like to know I have a place to put my head. Where you are wanting to go is very popular and sites get full very quickly. In Door County WI we like Hy-Land Court https://www.hylandcourt.com/ They are in a good location to enjoy most of Door County In the UP there are many things to see and do after doing the mackinac island stuff we found a great little park in Curtis called Log Cabin Resort https://www.uplogcabin.com/ Curtis being almost in the middle of the UP made seeing things very easy. I hope this helps somewhat

RE: How to Best Run New Coax on Roof ??

On topic I ran coax from the back of MH to front for same reason. I found that using dicor by its self did not work. For me the coax would not stay flat long enough for the dicor to harden. I ended up getting coax cable clips to hold it down while the dicor dried. I can not remember if the nails that came with the clips were long enough or not. I was not a fan of putting more holes in the roof, however by using way to much dicor I felt safe. Good Luck

RE: Has Anyone Pulled New Coax in Roof?

Do not know if this link will help, but it shows a connection between the main coax and the antenna coax. https://www.winnebago.com/Files/Files/Winnebago/Resources/Diagram/2007/07_wire_110138.pdf Good Luck

RE: Online Tire Ordering

I had a tire decision to make this past summer also. My rear tires were starting to show very large side wall cracks. We decided instead of trying to get home to Missouri from Northern Minnesota we would replace tires here. I had Michelin, but knew I wanted to go with TOYO tires. No one in northern Minnesota had anything near what I needed. So go on line! I found the same online dealer "Simiple Tire" and had 4 Toyos delivered to the shop for installation in 3 days. Customer service was excellent.

RE: Rock Collectors

So never knew there were more DW out there that brought home bags of rocks. We were gone all summer and returned with 4 plastic bags full of rocks from all over. Large ones small ones, the tumbling idea did get into her mind but i think (i hope) its pasted. Good Hunting

RE: Norcold on Inverter

Why not run your generator? This way you will have the frig on plus you can run the ac to keep coach cool.

RE: Drivers Seat Armrest

When you removed the arm rest was there a "pin" maybe about an inch long in the mechanism? I had the same thing happen, found out the pin came out. I was able to find the pin and hammer it back into the arm rest mechanism.

RE: Best ride for the buck

We went from a 1ton dully pulling a 35' 5th wheel, to a 30ft Thor ACE. The ride was better in the ACE, the noise for us was bearable. We found that for weekends the ACE was ok but for long trips it just would not work. We went to a 07 Itasca Meridian 37' with cummings engine. What a great choice for us. We have had it going on 4 years and almost 40,000 miles. The ride is better than the ACE however DW says that with the airbages its makes walking around while moving a little harder than in the ACE. I am not mechanically inclined so I have the unit serviced once a year. That way I know things are being looked after by folks who know. Good Luck

RE: Storage of Fresh Water - How Long

As for the fresh water tank, my rule of thumb is if its going to sit for more than a couple weeeks I will drain it. I carry less than 1/3 so not much is sent to the ground. As for the water heater, I drain mine at the end of the season. Clean it out using a water heater nozzle on the hose. I have never understood the folks who drain after every trip. My question is do they drain their water heater at home when they leave?

RE: Gas Class A

A couple years back my DW finally had enough of the "chucking", rough ride that our 1ton dually pulling a 35'5th wheel could give. We went looking for a MH, a gas one was within budget. We found a nice 29' one that we thought fit the bill. The ride was ok, the seats were not the best but very do able. The engine noise was a little over bearing at times. Nothing that we could not get used to. On the down side that we never even thought about was storage! Being used to the large 5er the gasser had no storage neither inside or out. For weekend use it was great but for long trips not so much. After the first year we realized we made a size mistake. So off we go looking for larger MH's. Thats when we found an older 37'DP in excellent shape. The ride so much better, its easier for DW to get up and move around when rig is in motion. Everything that "tracking" had to say was correct. I will add think hard about how you want to use the MH. Do not get two short of a unit, as the change from toy hauler to mh is a big one. Good Luck you have a big decission to make

RE: branson trip

I am sure you mean HWY 65 not 75. I have not taken HWY 412 but have driven HWY 62 many times. Either way you will end up on the southern part of 65. That part does not have the 3 hills you are talking about. If you have never stopped in Eureka Springs this would be a good time. Its worth a day or two. Good Luck love the ozark mountain driving
