RE: RV Campgrounds Near Rehoboth Beach

Thanks everyone. Can anyone vouch for any of campgrounds listed? I have stayed at Big Oaks in the past and it was nice.... I stay at Delaware Seashore State Park several times a year... You have to book 1 year in advance IF you want a holiday site, ... or weekend site.... Hit or miss for other times of the year... Its very popular and sold out usually

RE: Old truck, new look…

Man Grit, I LOVE the looks of that truck ! !! Keeping it old school looking is a good plan, at least I think so. You can't go wrong with those old steelies ! I bet that wheel/tire combo will sling some mud and do some humming while rolling down the asphalt. :C They’re a new twist on old wheels. Back in the day the sizes were 16”, 16” or 16”. Or 16.5s a few years before that model. Now Detroit steel wheels and US Wheel make “big” steelies. My 82 had 16" steelies on it before I swapped them for some cheap aluminum wheels.. Went back to steelies after I bent 2 while off roading, after all, thats what 17 year olds do....

RE: DISCUSSION: 8 ft + crew cab vs. SUV

I have been towing for 30+ years and can honestly say the Long Bed is so much better. You will not notice a HUGE difference solo from a Short Box to a Long Box, other than a bit better ride with the Long Box because of the longer wheelbase.. What I like MOST is the fact that the LB can get the 48 gallon fuel tank.... That in itself is awesome for travelling . . .

RE: 2023 camping season

I wish MORE RV folks would 'cut back'.. ha, ha... That would make it easier to get reservations at the parks I want to go to.. I can't just pick up and go on a whim.. I do not wish to just "camp" in a parking lot type of park. I was paying $6/gallon gas last season, so I guess since eggs are now $3/dozen, I might just have to make smaller omelets on the Blackstone! :) Mitch https://i.imgur.com/XG8H0uzm.jpg?1 Hey Mitch...where ya gettin those $3 doz eggs? Walmart here is $5.80 doz! Is it possible to make a 1 egg omelet??:) I don't get concerned over gas prices, in fact, when towing, most always use pure premium. Jerry Most stores around here actually have a 2 carton LIMIT on eggs... like people can afford to pay fpr 3 + cartons ! :B

RE: time to replace brakes?

Throw ALL those Math problems Into the trash can and stop over thinking. IF the brakes a low, AND your taking that multi thousand mile trip ( 6,000 - 10,000 ) , just replace them and be done with it..:S piece of mind = priceless and by the way... agree with the above .080 is 80 thousands where 1/8" is .125, or 125,000.... 45,000 thicker ( .045 ) than .080 now my brain hurts Agree, but I would also check the bearings, change seals, repack and adjust. I would as well, and assumed that would be done anyway... If I were taking a trip like that, I would go over every bit of that trailer with a fine tooth comb... and a few spare parts may not be a bad idea. I know I carry the essentials.

RE: time to replace brakes?

Well I sure am glad I posted before dropping $$$$$. My pads are 1/8 inch thick at thinnest spot. So ... using the right numbers 1/8 (=2/16 duh) is halfway between 3/16 and 1/16 (duh #2). So I have ~15,500 miles (or so) on those brakes, enough to go on our trip. BTW my brakes are $185 a pair, so $370. And yes, I admit, my math sucks!!!!! $ 185 a pair !!!! ???? Gold Coated? :h

RE: Leaf Spring Failure - Replace the Others?

After 3 springs broke during the years I get fed up and install the IS .That system put the end of the worry to get stock on the road. What's the "IS"? IS = Independent Suspension Morryde It is an unbelievable system, but with that come a price tag that is steep... To those who have it, its like non other, to those who never had it they have no idea just how nice it rides... I believe I paid $6800 back in 2019 for mine last one, as I have had the system on my last 3 RV's

RE: RV Flex Armor

I'd be a LOT more interested if they had a product that was about 8" wide right where the rubber roof meets the front, side and back walls. That is the weak spot in the traditional RV roof. The other 95% of the roof is perfectly fine. It would be similar to Eternabond tape application around the seams, but ideally look a little more professional. I purchased a 25' roll of 8" Eternobond and bridged those 2 seams on my last 2 RV's because of the possibility of leaks... I was not concerned with the looks as you cannot see the roof... I agree with you for the side seams....

RE: Generator question

In MY Opinion.. The onboards are designed basically for that purpose.. Get to a stop, press a button and start the generator. the next morning all you have to do is bring in slides, turn everything off, including he generator and hook up and go. They do get Thirsty though, depending on the load, and bottle size you will need a fill up. and EXPENSIVE.. I paid I believe $5k 5 or 6 years ago for my 6.5 Onan. The portables are good to use for longer stops, by the time you get there, get all set up and pull the generator out, hook up the anaconda. I used 2 Honda's for years until I got my onboard. It will come down to if you can justify the expense of the onboard.

RE: Vanleigh shutting down

It is a shame to see any manufacturer to bite the dust, especially one that carries the " Tiffin" name, even if it's silent. We were interested in looking at them but could not find any dealers close to us at the time, every owner we talked to in CG's LOVED their RV and had good remarks about the company. Glad to hear they are doing the current owners a solid and keeping the service/warranty portion open..

RE: Should I Buy The Dealer's Hitch

If you're willing to pay the $1000's extra for an F250 over an F150, then why are you quibbling over the $300 of shop time to have the hitch installed? That's 2 hours of shop time these days, which is about right. Say what??? When was the last time you went truck shopping? There is very little differnce between the 150s and the 250 or the 350 set up the same. Availability of trucks is another issue. Yes, I've been shopping and very discouraged by the lack of inventory. My local Ford dealer usually has hundreds of trucks on the lot, only had 6 Super dutys and 35 F150s. Don't know where you've been but the difference between 1/2 tons and 3/4 tons is about $10,000. Trim level for trim level. Of course if you compare a mid-trim F150 with a base F250, the price is about the same. That's not apples to apples. I ordered a 2022 F150 platinum AND a 2022 F250 Platinum, both speched as close as possible... they came in and the sticker was just about $4500 higher on the F250... BTW, there is a 2022 F250 Platinum in Feasterville PA if anyone wants one ! ! :B

RE: Should I Buy The Dealer's Hitch

I'm buying a bumper pull trailer and the dealer is offering to install a weight distribution hitch for $1,000. ? $1,000 NO NO NO!!!! You can get a used Hensley Arrow or a used ProPride hitch for a few $ more. Search this forum for either and read the reviews. "a few $ more"? Really? I just did a search and it looks like the new ones run about $4,000. Yikes! I'm not poor, but I'm not made out of money, either. One quick search for a USED ARROW Link $1,800 That's a bit more than a "few Dollars more" .. Almost double.! Not saying that the Hensley is not worth it, they are.

RE: Pet Peeves in RV Parks

My biggest pet peeve at RV parks has been horrendously loud diesel pushers pulling in right next to me late at night, waking me up then continuing to run at high idle for like 30 to 40 minutes. I don't have anything nice to say about those people or to them. Most end up leaving the next day because they were just passing through, but it has happened to me a handful of times and is ridiculous. I really enjoyed traveling around and seeing different places and RV parks when I had purchased my 5th wheel 10 years ago. Most places weren't even 50% full, many less than 25%. You'd have empty spaces all around you. Now they're stacked up like cordwood. I don't enjoy it anymore so I quit. I only use my private campsite when I want to go RVing. There's plenty of space and none of the annoyances. What about in the AM when they start the engine and let it idle for a long time before leaving??? That does get old, I start, hook up and idle out to the road,,, the 6.7 is ready to run at that point..no need to idle any longer , unless in a class A and have an air leak and waiting for the chambers to fill

RE: Park pet peeves, Park owner’s turn

shelby said: " I've noticed your posts often pop up in the middle of threads, as if you've "reserved" a place but your post shows up hours later. How do you do that?" There is an obvious explanation for this! Many members falling between 85-115 are unaware of what is going on when this happens. Grit is not the only one utilizing this secret way of reserving his post spot. Jerry LOL! I wish it was some speshul privilege, but I'm pretty sure I'm on the rv.net Most Wanted Poster List and all my posts are on probation until they clear customs! That right there is pretty darn funny..... Whenever I log in and see the beginning of a page looking strange, like its missing something I say to myself.."I guess Grit posted something".. Sure enough later on I log back in and there is his post, all tucked into the thread like it belongs ! That is what is called a "DELAY" .. kind of like a timeout ! ! :B There are 1 or 2 others that are lucky enough to be "delayed" that I know......
