RE: ? "Best" Coffee Maker?

95% of our camping is without electricity, so we used to use the Enamelware Percolators and Boiler, but now we use the Coleman Drip coffee pot. It sits on the camp stove.

RE: RV Garage

We are currently looking for an A class, but with the lower doors it sure limits what we can get. http://i1210.photobucket.com/albums/cc416/dannytas/Home/frontofshopfromhouse-1.jpg height=650 Before I'd compromise on the height of a MH, I would remove the concrete on the right side from the road to 15' inside the right bay. Replace with a flat pour till inside the garage 5' and then ramp back up in the last 10'. This will probably give you 12" or more additional clearance on the front of a new MH and a little less in the middle. Add a manually folding section to the bottom of the door to fill in. The back axle may not get to the original floor level. Not sure this would work if you have to back into the garage. Another option would be to replace the roll up door with two taller doors that swing open, but it would be hard to make them match the looks of the other roll up door. I really like your idea about lowering the right bay floor. I just happen to have two panels of the doors that I replaced so that I could have larger windows. It would be at least one door section lower, giving me that much more height. Thanks!!!:B

RE: N.S.A. Ready Brake

So, this is a newbie question. I haven't taken delivery of my class A yet. I googled this product and it seems to apply the brakes of your towed vehicle if it becomes detached from your RV. Is this something that I will need when I start towing a vehicle? Should I make rgatijnet1 an offer? After I did my research, I came to the conclusion that this unit would serve my purpose. I got it at a good price. So I'm going with it. Check out the product on you tube and their website. Rgatijnet1 might still have it. Might be just what you are looking for. Good luck with your hunt. ..

RE: N.S.A. Ready Brake

The unit is so good that I have a brand new in the box Ready Brake unit that I could NOT sell for 1/2 the cost, lifetime warranty and all. Nobody wanted it. Wondering where you were a few months ago. I picked one up on ebay as well from someone. To the OP if you need some tips on the install (i.e. learn from my mistakes) check out my blog link in my sig. Thanks, I will check out your blog link. ..

N.S.A. Ready Brake

I would like to give a big "thumbs up" to N.S.A Ready Brake Company and to a gentleman, Bob from Washington. I bought a new, in box Ready Brake system on ebay,from Bob. He stopped RVing before he was able to use the product. When I received the package the invoice listed the RS-5000 break away system included. Alas, no RS-5000. I contacted Bob to inform him of the missing item. He promptly contacted N.S.A. Ready Brake Company and explained what was happening. Now, Bob bought this item 2 years ago. In my opinion, N.S.A. had no real obligation to satisfy any request after that long of a period. Well, I just received and email this morning from Sue at N.S.A. Ready Brake Company, with an attached invoice for delivery of the RS-5000 Break away system. FREE OF CHARGE. Needless to say, I'm impressed. So, those of you looking for a braking system for your towd, please take a look at the N.S.A Braking System. I'm not pushing to sell any of their product, but I am very appreciative by their customer service and think that you will be, too. For those wondering about my signature...we are in the hunt for a Class A. This forum is giving us some very informative information in our search. Thanks to all...

RE: tips for 1st timer

I have a power jack and only using it to unhook and hook-up is the only power drain for the jack. We have two batteries, wired in parallel(12v), and use the jenny about every 2-3 days to charge them up. I check the batteries with my multi-meter everyday to monitor our usage. I don't let them get below 60%. DW's only complaint is no hair dryer without generator. Water: we do the extra water jugs with transfer pump. We use one of the jugs out doors for washing up, filling dog dish, etc. Works great. On you first trip monitor your usage, water and battery, and the following trips you will be able to adjust to make your camping "just the way you want it"...

I'm perplexed as why some would say that a trailer frame might not be able to support a leveling system or that it may flex. Think about where the trailer axles are located. The overhang alone would surely flex the frame under that train of thought. Of coarse when you travel, there is another point of contact,the hitch, but there's still the overhang in the rear. That said, if I were to mount a leveling system, I would mount the "feet" half way between the axle and the corner of the unit. To help to keep the frame from "flexing". I'm such a hypocrite. Sorry, OP, I have no knowledge pertaining to the leveling system in question.

RE: Can I paint cooktop with BBQ paint? Or perhaps enamel paint?

We reconditioned a 1977 Wilderness and had to "spruce up" the range top. Went to the local auto parts store and bought header exhaust paint, silver and clear. Turned out very well. Worked for us...

RE: DW and backing up

True story: We were camping with another couple in our 37' Colorado. My wife and her girlfriend were giving me directions on backing up the rig, while my buddy watched the "fiasco". It was like having two wives, giving different directions at the same time. Frustrated, I got out and placed my wife at the left rear corner where I wanted to park the 5er and put the other lady at the right front corner of the camper and used them a "cones". The only "talk" I wanted to hear was "STOP" from my wife, when the trailer was in position. Worked great...;D

RE: DW and backing up

My wife drives forward, every time we go camping. When the ball clears the tongue, I yell to her: "Good", then she stops. Then I proceed to level the camper...We have a great system...It works...:D

RE: My dog bit me.

A lot of dog therapist here...I like the "bite back" theory. Just enough so that he knows, that you know, what he was trying to tell you...no harm, no foul and you both learned something...

RE: RV Garage

We have a 40'x44', with two bays with one (on the right) having a drive-thru. All the doors are 12'. I wish that they were at least 14'. When I bought a 37' fifth wheel, we had to have the front air conditioner changed to lower profile so that it would fit. We are currently looking for an A class, but with the lower doors it sure limits what we can get. http://i1210.photobucket.com/albums/cc416/dannytas/Home/frontofshopfromhouse-1.jpg height=630

RE: Can we all agree?

On a serious note... As the writer of a post I always figure it's my job to communicate clearly what I want to say - not the reader's job to figure it out. So I usually avoid initials like DW and just say "my wife." Until they start charging us by the letter that is! BTW it's OK to use LOL! So...DW is 'dear wife' and you said 'my wife'...shouldn't that be MW??? Here we go again...:B

RE: USA Sticker Maps - Settle an argument!

Use two maps. One can be states camped in and the other one is states visited. If that is not okay with DF, then all are correct, say, say yes dear. ...or use 3 maps, the last one for the states you 'want' to go to...
