RE: Best wax for lazy people?

I recently started using Turtle Wax Ice Shine and Seal after watching this video comparison. All I do is wash the RV, then dry it off. Then I spray it on a few feet at a time and wipe it off. The only thing lazier (when it comes to waxing) is letting someone else do it. I've used this on cars and it really brings out the shine. Our TT is aluminum sided and it didn't come as shiny as the cars did, but water beaded up and repelled off very quickly. Our TT is only a few years old and still looks new. I could feel the difference between waxed sections and unwaxed sections more than see it, so I was happy. I have used Meguiar's Ultimate Wash and Wax ever since we bought the TT and it keeps the TT looking very nice. The Turtle Wax Ice Shine and Seal provides 3 months of UV Protection. -Michael -Michael Well, I watched the video, and found the Turtle Wax Ice spray on stuff at the local Wal-Mart. We just got back from a 3000 mile trip in my wifes car, the guinea pig. I just washed it and the bugs really did just spray off at the local car wash, and the beading is still excellent. I think I found the wax for me. As a side note, I have already done the nose of the 5er with Rejex, and for not being a wax, it sure felt like a wax going on, and rubbing off. The Turtle Wax Ice was very easy in comparison. Time will tell which lasts better.

RE: Seeking expert opinion: thinning vs prescribed burns

Anyone who has been to the Black Hills might find it hard to believe that nearly the entire forest has been logged, but but it has, responsibly. The news releases some organizations put out would try to convince people that logging means clear cutting, but that isn't normally the case. In the PNW, which we are discussing, clearcutting is the norm. In other regions, it is not. The OP didn't state only in the PNW. There are always more examples than just one location. I didn't see this post this before it got narrowed down to one area, I was posting more generally.

RE: Seeking expert opinion: thinning vs prescribed burns

Well, living very close to the very first timber sale in national forest history, I have to say that proper management is possible, and it is not as negative as some would have people believe. An article from a state university. Anyone who has been to the Black Hills might find it hard to believe that nearly the entire forest has been logged, but but it has, responsibly. The news releases some organizations put out would try to convince people that logging means clear cutting, but that isn't normally the case.

RE: dog friendly motel in Wichita and Sioux Falls

The My Place in Sioux Falls is very pet friendly, but no outside doors to the rooms.

RE: Those with auto leveling systems

I have had a four point system for a year and a half now, and I am thinning out the amount of lumber I carry. We mainly boondock, and have had both wheels on one side or the other in the air many times. The shackles will not flip, at least on my trailer. I mainly carry blocks to put under the jacks feet now. I will not be without autolevel anymore.

RE: Personal experience with having slides and no slides?

A slide is not going to change your mileage enough that you would be able to measure. That would be the worst reason to not get a slide. We have never had a slide issue in 10 years with them.

RE: Sink covers on or off

Don't really know what they are good for. Usually just in the way. We have plenty of counter space and don't need the. Ours are stored away for the next owner, I guess. B.O. Same for us.

RE: What options?

Auto leveling system, dual pane windows, and large tanks. For us,everything else can be added or changed.

RE: Is there something wrong here?

On my last trip when I was opening the slide I noticed and heard the slide shake, make loud noise as if was to fall apart. And just now I try to open it, again and the same issue. Please advice if all it needs is grease, oil or service? Thank you all for your help... :h Are you sure it isn't just the rubber seals making noise against the slide? They can be noisy, and if they are bigger seals they can move the slide slightly when they flip out.

RE: Towing speed

I liked going 62 with my last pickup, but this one does not like 62 at all. The transmission is constantly shifting. If I speed up to 68 - 69 it almost never shifts. I have also checked mileage, as I do on almost every fill, and there is absolutely no difference in my pickup driving 55 and using my foot so as not have the cruise control trying to give full throttle on every hill, vs. driving 69 with the cruise. I have said this before, but this doesn't compute in my brain, slower should get better mileage, but it doesn't.

RE: Duramax Turbo

I should have mentioned that our friends issue was with a Duramax also.

RE: RV Ovens

We (my DW) are in the camp of having a thermometer in the oven so you know what is really going on, and a pizza stone on the deflector thin metal thing. My wife loves using the oven. She will also put stuff on a piece of foil and put it right on the bottom of the oven to use it as a broiler to brown some things.

RE: Financing question

We secured a loan through our credit union and got an incredible rate, and told the finance person I don't want anything you have. But then, the dealer we chose actually does have an out the door price. I don't mind paying for document fees, if the final price is what I was told. I refuse to pay the add on fees when I am given a price. I have walked out of showrooms in the past, and I kind of like doing it. :)

RE: proper hook up procedure?

Doesn't it depend on the type of hitch you have as to whether or not you use chocks? I watched a video yesterday that Dutchmansport posted of the pros and cons of the various hitch arrangements. It looked like the truck with the Anderson hitch just backed up under the 5th wheel hitch then the 5th wheel was lowered onto the ball. Do you still need chocks for this type of hitch? Yes you still need chock blocks. As soon as you unhook, the trailer is no longer in your control.

RE: new thermostat install problem

From what I remember on mine, I did color for color, and it was very easy. I am sure you do need +12 volts for a signal voltage. I did wire my AC for high fan only.

RE: Duramax Turbo

I had a friend with a loose clamp on one of the hoses and was losing boost. He described somewhat similar issues. I asked him to pop the hood and all it took was a couple turns and it tightened it enough to get him 350 miles to home. That is something easy to check.

RE: proper hook up procedure?

Always chock the wheels. It amazes me how many people don't. The trailer brakes will not even work until the trailer moves.
