RE: Niagara - campgrounds on the Canadian side

We stayed at the Jellystone in Canada. It was a decent campground. Basically anything on he Canadian side is developed. I know there is a KOA but we didn't drive by it. He Jellystone offered free shuttles to the falls. It worked out perfect for us. We were there in 2013.

RE: Galveston area things to do

Thanks. We are taken the ferry over. We are leaving from New Orleans in the morning and heading to Galveston (Jamaica Beach). What about in Houston?

Galveston area things to do

Hello. Looking for things to do in the areas mentioned. will be there the 2nd weekend of July. I have found stuff to do, but looking for other recommendations. Ive tried looking up visitor guides, but haven't found anything with any real good info. most states/areas have gone away from printed guides. And their online guides are average at best? looking for attractions and good food (BBQ and such). Ideas?

I have found stuff to do, but looking for other recommendations. have plans on the National sea shore, maybe the maritime museum. will probably do a canoe ride on the wolf river. Ive tried looking up visitor guides, but haven't found anything with any real good info. most states/areas have gone away from printed guides.

RE: Weight Distribution Hitch

Boy did you go backwards! F250 V-10 and a tent trailer to an F150 and a 7k lb TT! Yes do some proper lubing and all should be good!

RE: 3x3" receiver hitch!

Great. A bigger adapter to dodge on the road when they forget to remove them.

RE: Increasing towing capacity

What we are talking about here is strengthening the coach frame and adding a receiver. We don't need to be PE's to know how to increase that. In fact look next any RV, MH or Trailer and you can see that what the manuf designed is questionable. If I add extra supports or fish plates at is not going to cause a failure. Now if we were saying to install a class III receiver and tow 10k lbs with it then yes that's a problem. Or if someone installs smaller brakes than what was designed.

RE: Weight Distribution Hitch

On the hitch size. A 7800lb dry trailer will weigh at least 9500lbs loaded for a trip. That would give a properly loaded tongue weight of 1200+ lbs. the 1200/12,000 lb hitch is necessary. At that weight no hitch is going to be quiet. You will get some popping and screeching! Not familiar with your hitch either. I ran a Reese 1200/12,000lb Dual Cam (centerline) hitch. It made noise but wasn't bad. My suspension was far noisier than he hitch until I rebuilt the springs with bronze sleeves and wet bolts. After that I could pull into a campground with the WD still engaged and it was quiet.

RE: Dishwasher install issues on 2016 Fleetwood Excursion

It shouldn't be hard. The biggest line is the drain and that is about 1" in diameter. I'm sure the drawer don't go flush up against the wall. There should be a couple inches or more behind he drawers when they are closed. Sounds like the shop didn't want to do the work.

RE: agm battery life

AGM’s can last along time if charged correctly. I had one in my Excursion. It was 9 years old when I sold it. Still in good shape. If your using them for a trolling motor I would consider them. As long as you have the required paddle on board I would use them.

RE: The Verdic is in, New Ford 7.3 V-8 Gas mpg not so Great

Why would anyone expect an engine, although newer, with 2 less cylinders but a larger displacement, to get noticeably better fuel efficiency? Especially so in something with the aerodynamics of a brick like a heavy motorhome. No such thing as a free lunch. Yeah, that was kind of my thought as well. I had a chevy 454 in a 3500 Savanna Van back a few years ago, and my gas mileage never was above 10mpg. It went down to 7-8 when I was towing my 12,000 pound trailer. There is no free lunch. As someone in an earlier post said, good gas mileage and RV should never be used in the same sentence. Al It's called technology. Replacing a 20 year old motor with something new should get better mileage. Just like when the V-10 replaced the 460, more power and better mileage. Otherwise all it is, is a new motor with nothing to be said for it. Hopefully we get some real world reports and not some information from a couple guys I wouldn't trust driving a pedal car.

RE: Splendide XC Combo oiling our clothes?

We have been concerned about the oil spots on our lighter colored clothes and wondering where we got them. Our latest wash cycle oil spotted the back of my favorite white shirt and I know it had to be from the washer. Any ideas? Bob We have found that fabric softener often leaves a deposit on the clothes. We got tired of having to rewash clothes so we stopped using Downey or anything and just use some dryer balls for static control, if necessary. PS We have been using our Splendide for 5 years now. I have also found the fabric softener will leave spots. It's not all the time. I think it d pendant on how the clothes are laying in the machine?

RE: Survey for online reservation vs old school phone and email

I always make the phone call. IDE rather hear from a person rather than a vague email answer. I'll give whatever fee hey need to lock a fee. As long as I get a good site I don't care. If the website says no sites available, but there actually may be. Fix the website, you lost a potential customer. I'm not calling to verify your website. (This isn't on you, Specifically, but I've ran into that before). I put my dates in and everything said no availability. I called and they had many left. Now I just move on.

RE: Crazy Parts Prices from Manufacturers

Shop, shop, shop. When I was looking for a baseplate for our Explorer I found the prices varied by $100 and in between. The cheapest ended up being from Walmart (actually someone that sells through Walmart’s site). It was a new Roadmaster baseplate in OE packaging. It pays to shop around.

RE: Replacement for Concord Electric Series 90 TV Antenna

I have both a Winegard Sensar IV and a Jack. The Jack is mounted on a Winegard crank-up assembly. I camp virtually 100% in the boondocks, mostly in TV fringe areas. The Jack is useless for VHF stations. About 25% of the US TV stations are broadcasting on the VHF band so VHF is important. My Batwing is mounted on a separate mast and I use that for times that my Jack will not pull in the desired station. The Jack works well for UHF and most times that is all I need. As Bill noted, the booster is inside the coach. You can not use this booster. If you use the Jack or Batwing, you must use the included power inserter. I used the existing wall power booster. No issues.

RE: The Verdic is in, New Ford 7.3 V-8 Gas mpg not so Great

With the newer 10 speed and the new 7.3 I would expect better mileage, at least 1 mpg better. I got better with my 02 V-10 Excursion. I personally would hope for better drive ability and mileage. Anything less is unacceptable. If Ford wants to do something good for the F53 then replace the front solid axle with independent and offer an air ride option.

RE: Replacement for Concord Electric Series 90 TV Antenna

Ive read about people posting about the Jack not being good, but I've had nothing but good things about it. Me and my buddy had the winegard sensor. He added the wingman. He could never get many stations. And after the switch to digital my stations went from around 10 to 3 if I was lucky! The Jack got me more than I had before the switch to digital. And in my driveway 50 miles from downtown Chicago I went from 10 stations to 70! I changed nothing but replacement Jack. Many others have had similar results. I know you need to aim them perfectly, but if it means I get more stations that don't drop out I'll take it.
