RE: Water Pressure Regulator

I haven’t used one in near 20 years of RVing. Everywhere from the Rocky Mountains to the east coast and Canada to the Gulf! Always left my water on. I have one I bought along time ago because I was told I needed it. Never found a need for it. It now just sits in the bin in the water bay.

RE: Drill motor for stabilizers

Been using a cordless drill for years. Never got a dirty look from neighboring campers. It does the job I need it to. Yep, that’s because you are using a drill and not an impact! :C

RE: how long can one store a gas engined motorhome?

If you put fuel stabilizer in it the fuel should be OK. If not take it and go fill it up. Check it over real good for rodent damage first.

RE: Drill motor for stabilizers

Guess I'll switch mine out before I get assaulted at the campground. Probably a very good idea!

RE: Drill motor for stabilizers

Guess I'll switch mine out before I get assaulted at the campground. It gets bad when you have 3 people near you using them at the same time! I always used a drill. It’s better for the stabilizers.

RE: AGM Deep Cycle batteries

AGM is far, FAR superior to flooded lead acid. AGM is a much better choice! Although recently their have been some quality LifePo batteries that ar good quality.

RE: Drill motor for stabilizers

The next person I hear using an impact on their stabilizers im throwing their impact in the garbage or in a lake! :B Please use a cordless drill!

RE: Purchasing first TT, need a bit of sanity checking advice

You will be fine! Don’t obsess about it. Remember you want 12% of the trailers loaded for travel weight. Figure minimum trailer weight of 6000 lbs, closer to 6200. 12% of that for tongue weight would be approx 700lbs. That leaves you with 950 for the hitch and people. The Hemi and 8 speed will haul that without issue!

RE: Just give me the bad news.

Do you know how to spell fraud? Yep, it's spelled M-A-T-T. I still like his channel, but that was pretty shady. Sorry for the sidetrack, though it does deal directly with insurance fraud. Fix the truck! :) CC I can go the other way and tell you how insurance companies don’t want to pay a legitimate claim because they feel they don’t have to. Or take short cuts to fix a car. I’ve had the writer call a customer to have their car towed out because I wouldn’t work on it. I don’t want a shoddy (unsafe) repair with my name on it!

RE: Electric bikes !!

I just wish the electric bike riders would keep their speed to “pedal bike speed” on our shared-use bike paths. Many of them are a hazard to walkers and other bikers. Dave I agree. I just got my wife an E bike and found that even the lowest setting was still faster than most people casually ride. The highway setting gives you 19 mph. I got 22 with full on pedaling. While it’s nice to go fast, most of us are out there to enjoy nature while riding! Guessing you have cadence sensors. Not matter how slow you pedal the sensor still tells the bike how fast to go. Once you start pedaling the bike goes to the speed equal to the PAS level you're in. Torque sensors are easier to go slow because they require you to actually pedal to go faster. The bike will actually go really slow in PAS 1. Yes I’ve been researching to convert my 2 year old bike over. It sounds like a mid drive kit has the torque sensor and the hub kit has the pedal sensor. It’s not really an issue as you can just pedal a bit to pick up speed and then stop pedaling. Not a deal Breaker but it would be nice to pedal as slow as the bike and person needs to go.

RE: Just give me the bad news.

Well then I would get a dehumidifier and run it in their for a few days. Empty the bin often. You’ll be surprised how much water you can pull out like that!

RE: Just give me the bad news.

Could be as simple as a BCM or a fuse. maybe (and probably more likely) rodents got under the hood over the winter and chewed some wires. You say it ran OK when you parked it? And yes water damage would be covered. its not from a flood. and even then comprehensive would cover all that.

RE: 30A Surge Protector Recommendations

2 main ones. Watchdog from Hughes. Or the Progressive unit. Not sure on the Progressive, but the Watchdog has a replaceable surge module. You can replace it yourself, I think the progressive has to be sent in. Maybe someone else knows for sure.

RE: Anode rod help

Depending on use you can get 3-4 years out of one. Only once did I ever get a year out of one! That still has at least one probably 2 years left I it. Once you get near the metal rod (1/8” rod) then it’s time to replace it. You want to be really shocked? Flush it out with a water hose with an attachment that has a stream. I just flushed mine and got a ton of crud out of it!

RE: Vacation Home Buying Fizzling. RV's too?

Yep! Noticing a lot more RVs up for sale. It was only a matter of time.

RE: One Day Entry Fee Increase - RMNP

My goodness. What a lot of commotion over $2.00. How much did you spend to fill your fuel tank last time? How much did your rig cost? How much do you spend a night at your last stop at an RV park? This timed reservation system is in place to make for a better-quality visit. So more time sightseeing and less time waiting in line at the entrance and easier to find parking once in the park. With the timed reservation system in place at Arches, I'd guess the line at the entrance station is 25% of what it was a couple of years ago. From their website, visitation at RMNP increased 42% in seven years. But there wasn't a 42% increase in parking spaces nor will they be making Trail Ridge Road four lane anytime in the near (or even distant) future. You can do like we did at Arches: ride your bike into the park. No timed entrance permit required. The ride up Fall River Road is quite scenic and the coast back down from the top of Trail Ridge Road is exhilarating. Yes, $2 here ,$2 there it all adds up. I have the class A I have because I watch what I spend. And the times reservation system doesn’t make for a better quality visit for me, I wanted to get into RMNP early, but because I had no cell coverage I lost out on an early visit so I was stuck with 3:00. So yes, it is a piss poor idea.

RE: One Day Entry Fee Increase - RMNP

Well when they get rid of the timed entry fee on top of the regular entry fee, then I’ll go back to the NP’s! Isn't it a $2 fee?...... Yes, just another fee! And where does that money go?

RE: class a in storage for over a year

You will be OK. Yes the gas will go bad, but it will still run and drive. Stop and completely fill the tank and drive it till it’s near empty then refill it.
