RE: Are RV sewer hose supports necessary?

Although I’m not sure I would want to see “stuff” flowing down the gutter into the drain! You're joking, right? Make a visual and you will see I’m joking!!!!! Or am I!:E

RE: Are RV sewer hose supports necessary?

Yes they are! The only time I don’t use ours is when the connection is even with the ground. Only one campground we go to is like that and it’s lower than the RV so there is a natural slope. Any other time I use the support. Or as people have said PVC gutter. Although I’m not sure I would want to see “stuff” flowing down the gutter into the drain!

RE: RV toilet paper

Ok everyone. Let me know how that quality 2 ply works in your tanks? And let me know if you’ve never had a plugged line. The good quality 1ply and 2 ply will not break down fast of at all. When the time comes to dump that wad will plug the drain. Cheap single ply would be the way to go if you don’t want to use RV paper. I’ve used RV paper since we started RVing and I’ve had no issues. I do have some cheap paper we bought when people were hoarding it and that’s all we could find. It dissolves/breaks up quickly so it should be OK in the holding tank. I would never say use anything you would use at home. It’s just not all good for RV use!

RE: GM HD Trucks Many with AWD instead of 4WD

I’ve seen those 4WD trucks with an AWD setting. They have clutches inside which have no business inside an HD T-case! Skip the AWD T-case and get a standard 2hi, 4hi, N 4lo.

RE: Bunkhouse Feedback

Every one of those is an entry level model. The quality will be very low. I would recommend looking at a different level of trailer!

RE: Ford F-53 Anti sway bar quick fix

I did my buddy’s for him. We installed front Sumo springs. And did the CHF on the frt and rear at the same time. The change in handling is impressive! I would recommend when doing the front to get longer links!

RE: Ford V10

The V-10 has been torture tested by Ford and at various RPM’s. It will live all day long at 4K! Just let it work the way it was designed. Other than the very intrusive throttle by wire programming.

RE: Ford V10

Used to tow with an Excursion with the V-10 and 4.30 gears with a 5 star tune. GCWR was 18k lbs. it would climb any mountain I pointed it at. Never stopped below 50. Stock it was a dog. 3.73 and no tune and it wouldn’t get out of its own way on the highway and overpasses were ridiculous. I now have a 2012 F53 and tow an Explorer. I haven’t weighed it yet, but I’m guessing 24K lbs. this thing is slow as hell. It’s biggest handicap is the poor tune ford puts into the PCM. First off I’ve noticed the drive by wire is very intrusive. I can hear that I’m not getting full throttle opening when I put the pedal to the floor, and I’m sure that’s what is what is holding it back in the hills. We just went up I70 in CO over the Rockies, and then 40 into Granby CO over Berthoud Pass. That was a workout! Down to 35mph. Outside temps were 90’s and it never got over 217 on the climb. I also think these are under geared?! Mine has 4.30’s with the 22.5” tires. Even with the 5 speed trans I think it needs 4.56 minimum! My buddy went up in his 17 with the 6 speed and he was down to 25 and he was towing a Focus and is approximately 1k lbs lighter. But I’ll start with the tune first Next year will be the 5star tune for sure!

RE: Portable ice maker for RV.

I’ve always wanted one but was always to cheap to spend the $100-$150 for one. So I finally got one when we bought our new to us RV. The owner installed it in the basement storage compartment. It works decent for making ice for drinks, but the ice is t solid enough for a full size cooler. I’ll throw some of it into my lunch box type cooler, works great for that. As far as how much I spent on it. I either got it for free with the RV or I spent $65k to get one, still trying to figure that out!

RE: Texas trip cancelled!

Hello again. The name of the campground is River Run RV Resort in Granby CO. 20 minutes from the south entrance to RMNP.

RE: Texas trip cancelled!

Thanks everyone. My wife loves the beach and that was why we were doing Galveston and Biloxi for the beach. Heat doesn’t bother me. But with the added Covid BS we changed plans. Personally ide rather do the Rockies. We were in Colorado a couple years ago. Colorado Springs and that area. So now we are doing the northern part. And thanks for the stats, but don’t tell my wife! She’ll freak out over that too!

Texas trip cancelled!

Well. After watching and seeing what is going on in TX we canceled our Galveston and Biloxi MS trip for next week. It was just to risky. And it would be hot and the only thing hat would be open would be the beaches.....hopefully! So instead of worrying and sweating in the heat we cancelled. All this in the last 2 days. But I was able to make last minute reservations in Colorado at a new RV resort in the Rockies. Just south of Rocky Mtn NP. So that is our new destination. Much cooler. No huge Covid issues. And still plenty of small Lakes with beaches and hiking/biking trails. So it worked out. And detouring to Sioux Falls on the way home. Stay safe everyone!

RE: Under cabinet coffee maker?

Forgot about this thread. Update! We purchased another B&D under cabinet coffee maker. It is working great and has no issues. Yes there is some steam, but my wife only makes coffee once a day so it's a non issue. Thanks again.

RE: I need to setup a 2007 Chevy Tahoe for towing.

Good to know. As far as the brake lights with the key off. I wouldn't worry about that. With the harness you installed the brake lights will come on with he MH lights. Glad everything worked out.

RE: DEF how old is too old?

Dump it. Def has a shelf life. If it's stored in a cool place out of sun it's good for 12 months. If it's stored in direct sunlight then 3 months. The key is in how it's stored.

RE: Help in Purchasing Class A Motorhome

We have a 12 Georgetown. We bought it used last year. We have had no issues. And the previous owner had very minor warranty issue (we have all the paper work). My buddy has a 17 Fleetwood Bounder and it has had its share of issues. Mostly the way it's built (thrown together). I walked through a new Georgetown and wasn't impressed with the build quality in it either. Whatever you end up going with I think you will have some issues with it. That's just how these things are made.

RE: Are there good used DP's under $40,000?

Smart shopping and knowing what to look for will get you what you want! There out there. You just have to weed through all the junk!

RE: Concrete driveway thickness??

I belive my driveway that was poured 3 years ago is 4-5" thick and reinforced with wire mesh. The contractor that did it is a village resident that's been in buisness for 40 years with none of pathetic residents complaining of his work. My MH is only 19k lbs total distributed by the 4 (6) wheels. No issues with cracking. I would put hesitate to put another 10k in the same spot. Anything bigger wouldn't fit and I wouldn't be worrying about cracking.
