RE: Move to Motorhome

We have a Freedom Elite 22e by Thor Ford E350 Triton V10, 22ft box, 25ft bumper to bumper. No slides. Just the 2 of us. Both mid 60's and not big people. Bought it new in the fall of 2015. Three, 10 week,10,000 mile cross country and numerous trips through New England and no major problems so far. Gas mileage: 8 mpg. Sometimes a little less, rearly more. Just put a new set of Michelin Defenders on at 42,000. Very easy to maneuver and comfortable driving. This RV has served us well. If we were to replace this RV right now, I would get the Winnebago 25B floor plan. That recliner,couch, is the one big thing our current RV needs. DW also has serious back problems but we have learned how to deal with the corner bed. Oh. There is ample storage for us, but for the extended journeys I bought a "Pro Series" trailer hitch cargo carrier and attached one of those plastic pool side storage boxes to the hitch. Useful for those special items we pick up along the way.

Twinkle Star Water Pressure Regulator

I want to pick up an adjustable water pressure regulator. I'm thinking of the "Twinkle Star water pressure Regulator" with a gauge and inlet screen. Looks ok but I'd like some opinions or suggestions for an different one.

RE: Hold down screws for RV walls

Thanks for the ideas. I picked up some " Hillman Group 10/24 short jack nuts" made a little tool to pull up the back side. Worked perfectly!! Now I'm going to replace all the the downs with these. Won't have to do them again.. Thanks again.

Hold down screws for RV walls

The mount screws that hold the tension string for the big curtain over the dining set window are loose. Apparently the boys at the factory got a little carried away with their screw gun and over tightened them. Now they just spin. What should I use to secure these holders. The walls seem to be hollow and I didn't want to mess around until I got some advise here. 2016 Thor Freedom Elite 22e.

RE: States Visited Map Rules

We talked about it and decided that we have to sleep in the State to qualify. We have South Carolina, Florida, Louisiana and Alaska left to complete our map. I figure if we ever make it to Hawaii we'll just sleep in the rental car and call it good.

RE: E350 trickle charge

I apologize for the off topic question. I have en E350 also and I get power on the drivers side cigarette lighter outlet but no power on the passenger side outlet. I've looked all through the owners manual and tried turning on all of the interior switches but I can't get it to work. I would like to get access to the wiring but that looks like Id have to pull the console apart. Any suggestions would be appreciated. It sounds like yours works so I thought I'd ask. Again sorry to be off topic.

RE: Mixing Michelin tires

The fronts are identical. My rear dually tires will be the same size as the front. I'm wondering if it will effect the handling when the front set are one style (LTXMS2'S) AND THE rear dually's are a different style (Defender LXTMS or XPS RIB). All Michelin and all 6 will be the same size 225/75r/16.

Mixing Michelin tires

I've spent a week researching this and I'm not satisfied with the answers I'm getting so here we go. I have 4000 miles on a new set of Michelin LTXMS2 tires that I put on the front of my e350 22 ft Class C RV. 39000 miles on the original Michelin LTXMS2 TIRES. These tires have since been discontinued. Now at 44000 I want to change out the rear dually tires. Michelin says no problem using either "Defender LXTMS" or XPS RIB catalog # 08404 on the rear with the LTXMS2 ON THE front. However they recommend the XPS RIB. 3 truck tire dealers in the area say they recommend the Defender. I'm wondering if/how the stiff sidewalls on the XPS RIB will work with the LTXMS2 tires. The reason I changed the front tires early was because of an alignment problem, which has been fixed, caused the tires to wear faster. Really dont know what to do here.

RE: RV route, Albany NY to Acadia National park

We'll if your not in a rush I-87 north to Queensbury rd 149 then rt4 to I-91 north at White River Jct Vt to Route 2 to Bangor then Rd 1A to Bar Harbor/Acadia Np. Gorham New Hamshire (Mount Washington) is about 250 miles from Albany using this route. Some nice RV parks in the Gorham area and lots of things to see and do there to. If you like the interstate I-90 to I-91 North in Springfield Ma to Route 2 in Vt. They just repaved I-91 and it's smoooth.. Just a thought.... OH the Oceanside KOA there is pretty nice and serves a great lobster dinner for $23.

RE: Where do you search for parks?

I do a Google search in the area where we are planning to stop, then see what the various reviews that come up when I click on the campground. I really like campgroundreviews.com (formally RVparkreview.com) but I'm finding that many of the reviews are older. Now this could be because we were in some very "off the beaten trail" locations this summer.

Martha's Vinyard Visit

Going to visit Martha's Vineyard Sept 20 to 24. Have our roundtrip RV passage booked on the ferry and we will be staying at the Martha's Vineyard Family Campground. I've lived in Massachusetts all my life but have never visited the "Vineyard". Any suggestions on special places to see and visit? We have a smaller RV (25ft)so parking shouldn't be a problem. As always all suggestions are appreciated.

RE: Pulling TT through Newport Rhode Island

2x on Fisherman's State Park. The take the tow vehicle to your local destinations. Have a smaller class C and I have my hands full driving around Newport. As posted if you can spend a couple of days investigating the Point Judith and the Jamestown area (lookup Beaver Tail point in Jamestown) you won't be bored. How about a 1/2 or full day deep sea fishing trip right out of Galilee, right down the street from the mentioned State Park. Plenty to do and see. The Newport mansions, and the shore line drive there are great visits.

RE: Hooking up a 12V 3A TV in my TT

2x with Turn The Page`s post. I have the exact set up working off he cab cigar lighter accessory outlet. Been 4 years now and all is well. Honestly, with the ride my RV subjects this TV to, I thought it would have failed long ago. In fact we are sitting in our RV in a campground, in Gordonville Pa and DW is watching the TV as I write this post!!!

RE: Resort Campgrounds 2-3 hrs outside NYC?

Herkimer Diamond KOA, is by far one of the most family friendly campgrounds I have come across. From mining for "Diamonds" in the quarry, tubing down the river that is on the back side of the park, to joining in some of the non-stop camp sponsored activities for the kids. They won't be bored. Big campground with large clean sites, nice pool. Make reservations this place fills up fast. I was very disappointed with the Newburg KOA too..

RE: Quick question about Maine

Try the " Lobster Buoy Campsties" South Thomaston. Not a big place but the ocean is at your door step. Bring your surf casting rod. They only accept cash..

RV Campgrounds in Southern Ohio

I am looking for campground near Peebles Ohio. I have checked out Campgroundreviews.com and followed Google search locations listed campgrounds, but I'm wondering if anyone here has a favorite camp in that area. We are heading out next week and my plan is to take a ride on the "Lincoln Highway" US 30. Stop at Kidron Ohio to check out the Lehmans non electric store, then head south to Peebles an take in the Serpent Mount. Afterwards, after running around Chicago we will pick up US 30 westwards again. As always, suggestions are appreciated.

RE: fresh water tank

I had this problem once. What I did was disconnect the city water, turn on the pump, run the house water for a second or two, turn off the pump, open a faucet to relieve the house water pressure, then attach the city water again. Hasn`t happened since. I don't know how these valves work but I suspect there was a speck of something stuck in the system which was flushed away.. now before I hookup the city water, I make sure the pump is off then relieve the house water pressure.
