RE: clay bar and wax

When you use a clay bar make sure the surface is wet,use alot of water.never use a clay bar on a dry surface. As for polish I recommend Duragloss marine Rv polish #501

RE: Towing pop up with 2004 Honda Odyssey?

I would be careful towing with the Odyssey,your generation Odyssey had many transmission issues.I would not put that kind of strain on a transmission with 170k. Btw I am a Honda certified master technician for 25 years

RE: We finally bought our first Travel Trailer!

I carry 4 10 foot sections of the Rhino sewer hose, I carry 100 feet total of the white water hose 2 25 foot sections and 1 50 foot section. I have a surge guard surge protector,a watts style water pressure regulator. Get 4 of the good rubber wheel chocks. Get a comfortable chair some firewood, food and some cold beer and you should be good to go.

RE: What length sewer hose?

I use two 10 foot sections but I also carry two more 10 foot sections that are still in the box. I also carry a extra 50 foot of the white water hose.

Time to get ready

Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow and has predicted a early spring. I can only hope he is right I am so tired of this cold.

Blackstone griddle

I am looking for a different grill,I have the coleman road trip grill now I like it but I hate the clean up, it is a major pain to clean. I came across the Blackstone griddle and it looks intersting and looks like it would clean up easy. Who has the Blackstone and what is your opinion of it? Thanks.

RE: Mapping programs and Garmin RV770

Get Google maps on your phone, and carry a good and up to date paper map. Garmin's database is far from perfect and even when a discrepancy is reported to them multiple times they fail to update/correct it. Don't be surprised if it directs you to campgrounds that are miles from where it tells you, to a bridge washed out in 2011 that will never be rebuilt, or to a locked gate on a one lane road requiring backing up 3/4 of a mile to turn around which is the maintenance road to an ACOE dam, yet Garmin says it is the campground entrance that is in actuality 10 miles away. The Garmin RV760 LMT that I just had to have when it was first released back in 2012 or 2013 was the biggest waste of $400 I ever spent. Also the fact you get 20 miles from the Interstate and its going to tell you "RV Accessibility unknown" in a lot of cases. The RV height and size feature works great if you never leave the main highway LOL. I agree 100% I have the RV 760 it is horrible I hate the thing. I have thought about throwing it out of the truck window,someday I will most likely do it. The mapping is terrible it will put you on dirt roads and has taken me 30 miles out of the way. I have changed all the settings and have also called garmin support. Nothing helps this thing. I use google maps now with much better results. I have a 400 dollar paper weight,I will never buy another garmin gps.

RE: Winterizing - remove batteries or not?

I take mine out and store in my garage and have it on a battery tender,to keep it charged. As stated above it will not hurt them leaving them in,just be sure to keep them charged.

RE: What was the biggest flub on a trip?

First year we started camping I came home early from work so we could leave for the weekend.As I was hooking up the trailer to the truck my son was playing in the driveway,I disconnected the shore power cord and laid it off to the side.I finished getting everything ready to go got everybody in the truck and left. 150 miles later we were at the campground,it was July and was about 85 degrees and very humid. Got the trailer backed in,leveled and disconnected from the truck.At this point I was soaking wet with sweat all I wanted was a cold beer and air conditioning. I dropped the tailgate to get the cord,at that instant my world stopped. I knew right where the cord was,still in the driveway where I left it. I found a rv dealer about 30 miles away. That mistake cost me about 180 dollars till I bought the 50 amp adapter and a 30 amp cord,it was all they had. It got me thru the weekend. That cord is now stored in the trailer (always)

RE: CB usage?

CB sits on the shelf in the garage nowadays. Run my 2 meter HAM radio now. Lots more range and lots more fun when stopped overnight. Download a "repeater book" app for the phone and/or set the unit to scan for them and no issues. Also has APRS so family can see where I am by going to a website and NOAA radio as well. So much better than the old Citizen Band. Same for me,I never hear much on .52 but can normally find a repeater

Why limit yourself to state parks? There's gotta be lots of private CGs within striking distance from Portland. Believe it or not there are lots of people who will not consider private campgrounds for a whole host of reasons, most of which is being packed in like sardines, myself included. A few people have an idea of camping which does not include line dancing with live bands, bingo's, indoor swimming pools, and nightly golf cart races, along with typically being packed in among seasonal cliques. I have never been to OR, but here in PA the above fits the description of just about every private campground I am aware of. i agree Ralph,I find we enjoy the Pa state parks alot more than the private campgrounds. I hate being packed in,and every private campground we have been to here in Pa has been like that.

RE: Transmission question

You will not hurt the torqueshift transmission in your 6.2 powered truck,it is the same trans they use with the diesel. When I had my 14 f-250 with the 6.2 with 3.73 gears I normally locked out 6th gear and never used cruise,if I did it seemed to make it shift too much.

RE: Ham Loaf (A Western PA thing)

We love ham loaf,we can still buy the mix at our local meat market in Dubois but I will save the recipe in case they stop making it.

Suburban oven problem

During our last trip our oven developed a issue.The pilot light will light and so will the burner, but about 1 second after the burner lights there is a little poof sound and a orange flame appears back near the pilot light.The flame is about the size of a candle flame. The rest of the burner works fine and has a blue flame,the oven seems to work ok. I an just concerned because I never noticed it before. Thanks for the help.
