RE: Wind!

Yep, you paid for them straps use them! I’ve covered both my last trailers and I had no damage from the cover. You need to pad any protrusions and make sure the straps are tight!

RE: Tonneau Cover

I ordered my soft roll up from Amazon I believe it’s a Gator brand. As far as the back window….I use my power sliding window all the time for air flow or to put longer,lighter stuff through into the cab. 2016 Ram Crew Cab 5’7” bed

RE: Add Awning To Slide?

Another option is a telescoping latter and a swiss broom....I'm being serious. We've had trailer's with slide toppers and those without and prefer those without. After owning a trailer with slide toppers for duration " 10 years " I've come to the conclusion that sweeping off the top and treating the seals trumps fighting mildew and dry rot seals. Our latest trailer has no toppers over the slides and we leave slides out year around.....much preferred. Ymmv That's what I currently do. Have considered a slide topper but how do you keep a puddle of water from forming in rainstorms? 13 years with 2 trailers and no toppers and now 3 years and toppers on all 3 slides. I would never have a slide out without toppers. The water that does collect will come off when putting the slide in.

RE: Loading generator

fill the tank with stabil or seafoam and drive it to stir it up. then run the generator long enough to get it into the carburetor. it will then be fine to sit all winter.

RE: RV Satellite Replacement

As nice as it is to have it mounted on the roof and just hit a switch. Being able to move it around on the ground to an opening with no trees is a big plus!

RE: New motor home blues…

So much for Tiffin quality!

RE: Replacement Sofas

We replaced our very uncomfortable sleeper sofa with a Laz Boy reclining love seat. It wasn’t peeling, but we knew it was coming. It’s in my daughters room now. The front seats are just starting to peel a little. I will have them recovered when the time comes!

RE: Tow bar options & instillation advice

Blue Ox and Roadmaster are the options. I have Roadmaster and no issues. My buddy has Blue Ox and no issues. Either one is good. Whatever you get make sure it the MH mounted bar.

RE: Gasser guys and gals ...why not a diesel ?

Maintenance? My DP has about 91,00mi on it. Change oil & filters including Gen once a year, about $200. Had to replace the heater core and some refrigerator issues (gassers have those also). So what is the maintenance issue? Just wait till that V-10 blows out a spark plug. My F-350 diesel has 165,000mi on it and nothing has went wrong that has anything to do with it being a diesel. Not many gassers go over 200k without serious problems. But the gas ones are a little cheaper and a lot of that is reflected in the quality of the "house" part as well as the drive train. The V-10 plug blowing issue went away in 03 with a cylinder head redesign. The V-10 will go well over 200k even 400k without issues. They have been proven to be reliable.

RE: Let’s hear your best MPG and driving style ?

Let me throw this out there ! If you could improve your MPG by modifying your driving style a bit ... would you do so ? And let me warn you .... some people are going to HATE ME for me posting my numbers I’ve tried different speeds, the differences in the numbers are negligible.

RE: Gasser guys and gals ...why not a diesel ?

Price right now, a comparable diesel when we bought was another $60k. That’s a lot of fuel. I will have diesel eventually.

RE: Anyone dribble their gray ?

Yes with a hose. But only in rustic sites.

RE: Running lights on cars

It seems I have found more nonsense than common sense in my post. The idea that on sunny day the lights would make a difference maybe not so much but on the gray day in a misty rain near dusk they definitely could save many lives and do. All GM products have had them for years but the other American vehicles don't it seems. I really can't believe some of the reply's here as being nothing short of nonsensical. After 16 years on this forum, you oughta be pretty used to the nonsense meted out. ;-) Yes, because being able to see a car coming from a mile away is helpful! Now of course in rain or fog they work when you are close, but not needed most of the time!

RE: Shakedown Run

Always a fun learning experience. It would be money well spent to the metal a slide out awning. Not only for the water, it will also keep the slide out ceiling cool.

RE: Let’s hear your best MPG and driving style ?

I average 5.6 towing my 13 Explorer with 4 bikes with our 12 Georgetown with the V-10 and 5 speed auto at 70mph. slowing down to 65 doesn`t seem to change the mileage any. without the Explorer I`m around 6.5. GCW at 26,300lbs.

RE: Running lights on cars

I e never had any issues with cars on secondary roads. If a car is almost going to hit you they aren’t paying attention, lights or no lights!

RE: Leveling Jack Pads/Slide Out Supports

Slides are self supporting. If you need them then there is something wrong with the slideout. I don’t have the pads, but probably will get them next year. If only to keep the rust rings off my driveway

RE: Pro-Pride Hitch

FWIW, I towed my 35ft TT with my Excursion using a Reese Dual Cam hitch. Never any issues, and I do 4000 miles in 2-3 weeks, so lots of driving. Properly setup any hitch will provide a safe towing experience.

RE: Any 80mph PLUS - class Aers still on here ?

Love setting the cruise at 85 and enjoy being in front of everyone. My F53 was saddled with a 75mph limit from the factory. A tune took care of that. I could’ve eliminated it altogether but I decided to set it at 120mph (didn’t want to be careless)! Now every slow poke cruising along at 65-70 can just watch me go one by! Lead, Follow, or get out of the way!!!

RE: Ever hear of this camping company? Harvest Host

I too was going to join. But after seeing what other members posted as where they got to stay, no thanks! It’s a **** shoot! Not worth it and definitely not with not even electric hookup!
