RE: Renting out your RV nightmares.

A friend of mine does repairs on boats hulls both fibreglass and poly vinyl(?); Take the tank out, take it to a boat shop and get their opinion. They should be able to help you out.

RE: New camper with very little info on it.

Call KZ and give them your VIN - they will help out. I spoke to them last week and they were very helpful.

RE: Electric brakes self adjusting?

Crawl underneath and take a look at the backing plate: If you see a couple of oval rubber bungs at the bottom of the backing plate then they are not self-adjusting. If there are no bungs then your brakes are self-adjusting. They self adjust going forward.

RE: Long Term RV Repairs

i can see the situation where a MH/camper stays at the repair facility for months. I live near an fairly large RV repair dealer and go past it almost every day; At least half of the MH/campers stay on his lot for not weeks but months. He has a lot on the side where there are over 10 class C campers which have been there for at least 18 months now (they do move around occasionally). I once took my TT there and was told to "leave and we'll get back to you", There have been many stories here about owners leaving their vehicles for months at the RV dealer even though it may be a simple fix.

RE: need advice

By road, do mean in a car, motorcycle, camper, travel trailer? I know of several people who have traveled by motorcycle, so it is possible. But personally, I think I would purchase a Personal Armoured Car - they drive like maniacs over there.

RE: Naps

Naps have been part of my whole life (even in school); You can set your clock by my naps - every day at 2PM....... I power nap - only sleep for 10-15 minutes; If I don't get my nap, I drag for the rest of the day; Even when I'm on a motorcycle trip, I pull over, rest my head against a tree and fall into a deep sleep (I sometimes don't even take my helmet off..).

RE: Dehumidifier ?

Something is not right here; An aircon is supposed to pull the humidity out of the air. Dry air at the same temp feels a lot more comfortable. To the OP, when your AC is on, does water drip out of the unit? It should as the AC is pulling water out of the air. If not then you may have a problem - plugged? I think, Installing a dehumidifier is only masking the real problem. All the AC in our campers have dried out the air.

RE: Opinion on Resort Fees ?

I thought the Marriott Hotel chain just got fined for doing this. The advertised a rate then added "resort fees" on checkout - I believe they have been ordered to reimburse their customers for the "resort fee". How's this any different?

RE: New style entry steps

I do not like them at all; I park my TH in a barn with and there is about 3 ft between the door and the barn wall. If i had the new style stairs then I would not be able to get into the camper.

RE: Electronic Self-adjusting brakes

Bought a new TH with self adjusting brakes - first camper I've had with them. Love them.

RE: Best rv parks around Saratoga Spring NY

I stayed here (Moreau Lake State Park) a few weeks ago - really nice place; Large sites, great setting, plenty of walking/cycling trails, good swimming.... Quick drive to Glen Falls, Saratoga, Lk George. Highly recommended

RE: Do I call the repair service or tow service first?

Call road service; they will contact the appropriate towing company and have the vehicle towed to the repair shop. It's up to you but the last 2 times I had my vehicle towed to my home where I took care of the problem. It could be a simple problem as the neutral safety switch which is stopping the lever moving out of neutral

RE: new TT what do you change first if anything?

Go buy some Rustulium paint and crawl under you new trailer Great suggestion, I use Rustoleum Undercoat and the High Temp paint (It has loads of solids). I give everything a good coat of paint. Chassis still looks (almost) brand new - I was surprised how much surface rust my new trailer had. Then repeat just before the winter. Oh - a power tongue jack - what a difference and dual batteries. As others stated, live in it for a while, you will adapt as needs arise.

RE: Chisos Basin, Big Bend

Was there last Jan and rode the road up to the CHisos campground. I would take that recommendation seriously. A couple of hairpins were tight.

RE: Do all campers leak ??????

Campers CAN leak but not all actually do leak; My last 3 campers have been water tight but then I do keep then in a barn to protect them from the elements. The sun does a number on the rubber roof so I prefer to protect the roof. Also an annual maintenance of the roof is almost required. If you find a camper that is covered, it may be a good sign that the owner cares about their RV and may be in better condition to owners who leave them outside.

RE: Switch to houseboat?

50 buck a night campground fees I go to State/Federal campgrounds and pay as little as $14/night to a max of $37/night. Sometimes I have elec other times not. But a house boat? we lived on a house boat for 1 summer and it was "different" but glad to get back on land. The house boat was moored in the middle of the lake, so we had to row to/from shore. I was young then not sure I could do it now.

RE: Gas tax increase in some states July 1st

We never learn. NJ had the lowest gas prices in the North-East, people from PA, NJ, DE used to cross the border to fill up their tanks. Great, more tax revenue for NJ. So what did our illustrious leaders do? they raised the gas tax by 23c. So people from PA, NJ, DE stopped filling their tanks in NJ. Result? Tax revenues are down. No sh*t. I'm not an economist but I could have figured that out. So what do we do ? we elect a governor who promises to raise taxes. Are we stupid or what? Oh and that 23c tax increase was supposed to be temporary and offset by a reduction in sales tax. So what do you think happened to the sales tax? Are we stupid or what?

RE: Toy hauler fails

Been hauling small dirt bikes for years. Never used any kind of chock but use 4 tie downs at each corner and cinch down pretty tightly. I also have a heavier bike and same procedure. I also haul the bikes in the back of my van using the same procedure. Never had an issue but my bikes are relatively light compared to others. BTW - I keep the kickstand DOWN (on a piece of wood);

RE: What can I do with/expect from a generator?

I bought a Yammi 2000W genny to charge the batteries during the winter. it works great for its intended purpose and can run the microwave when needed. I turn on the genny at the beginning of the evening on use 12oz of fuel which runs the genny for about 4 hours. It won't run the AC.... I borrowed a friend 750W Honda and it worked well to charge the batteries. You're 3000w is overkill if ALL you want is charge the batteries and its HEAVY. I've been tempted to buy a Ryobi propane (750W) genny and just keep it in the TT to use as a battery charger.

RE: Shopping for travel trailer. I need help, please

Every TT I have owned and 99% of the TTs I see have a yellow sticker on the front left corner of the TT. Over the past few years I have seen another sticker on the door which is a "as shipped weight". I thought this was universal.
