RE: Mildew

For mildew you need a dehumidifier or/and run A/C. Use a good spray especially if you have the black stuff. Clean with vinegar and spray. I used Microban. When we leave our camper we run the dehumidifier at 40. NOT A HUMIDIFIEER.

RE: New Cardinal 403fkle Permanent housing

I have a Carriage Cameo that I live in full time on a cement pad on my own land. Just have the levelers (Big Foot) down and that is it. I can still bring them up and disconnect for travel, if I choose. In case of hurricane, during those months I do have heavy straps from the axles and hitch tied to the ground. I remove them after hurricane season, so I won't trip over them. Some parks require you tie down your rig, but this is permanent and you can't move unless you cut them.

RE: Shower hose fittings problem

Go to a hardware store and bring your head (shower head, too). Let them take a look so you can purchase the right one.

RE: Slow leak

Could be a leak in the valve stem. I had a slow leak in RV tire and at another time my truck and in both cases it was a leak at the valve.

RE: Towing Disaster-AAA

In N.C. I know that AAA does not cover RV's. I looked into it one time.

RE: What to use for GPS

Are you using the program "Garmin Express" for updates. I have a garmin and no problems "yet". If they are supposed to give you free updates then I would email or call them.

RE: Towing Disaster-AAA

Mike: Never was stood up by Coach-net, but was denied service from GS years ago on RT. 95. Would not tow me off highway or advise even where I could get replacement tire. Stranded for entire week-end.

RE: Towing Disaster-AAA

I keep telling people of this forum..COACH-NET can't be beat. 877-801-0333 Have used them many times without any problems for my truck and 5er.

RE: Truck Seat Repair

Quite a while ago I asked about truck seat repair. Well, I got a repair kit, and it appears that the kit only covers tears in the fake leather. You can not use it as a surface band-aid. Finally, I got fed up and looked at one of the eternabond products I have and it DID mention that it can be used on vinyl. Well, I tried it on a small portion of the worn truck seat, and it is holding and working splendidly. I do not care of a color match, just to fix the chaffing on the seat so it does not get worse. I will be completing the project. So, for those of you who have this problem and just want a repair not caring about color use the eternabond Foof Seal tape. Before you apply it just round the corners. I have the 4'x60" sealing tape. On the front of the package it lists the many uses.

RE: Lambright Near Tacoma

Did you ever talk to Vernon at Lambert? If so, was he able to assist?

RE: Arctic Fox 1150 is breaking my 2016 Ford 350 dually

Just a thought. Are you sure that your 5er hitch is mounted correctly: through the frame of the truck and positioned where it should be? I hope it is not just mounted to the bed and not the frame. Is it even: left to right. Are the bolts holding it to the frame tight?

RE: Uneven Dually tire wear

I have the same with my Ford. I understand this is normal due to weight distribution. I never do it, but they say to rotate the tires so they wear evenly.

RE: Moisture behind mattress? (Cold caught us)

If you are getting water intrusion and you don't have the cabinets exposed to inside air, you might have a roof or leak along a seal. Check all sealant areas.

RE: Lambright Near Tacoma

We bought from them over the phone, and Vernon helped us out a lot. We got the recliners yesterday, but the trucking company screwed us by forgetting the couch. The chairs are very supportive. We are 5 5 and he recommended the proper item for our height. Perfect. Give him a call and get brochures. He will also send you fabric samples. Only down side he is very busy and will take a bit before you get your product. If nothing else he could direct you to a show room near your location.... 260-768-4820.

RE: Destin RV Resort

I don't see mantion of the park name, but if you are staying for short term try the State Park: Henderson Beach State Park. Or further down, the road Top Sail State Park.

RE: Moisture behind mattress? (Cold caught us)

Pull your mattress away from the wall about an inch so you have air flow behind it.

RE: Anyone making a reliable new truck now?

I have a '06 6.0 ford diesel and it works great, WHEN IT RUNS. I have less than 150,000 on it, bought it new and have spent about 1-$2000 every 6 months with some sort of repair. $16K to date. Like I said, the truck is great WHEN IT RUNS. At the current price of trucks, can't afford a new one on retirement income, but who says a new one would be any better?

RE: Toilet seal lube?

Check seal part number 385311658 or flush ball 385318162. You probably just need to shut off the water, clean the seal with mild soap like dawn, rinse off, then spray silicone spray on the rubber and let sit to dry. This should solve your problem.

RE: How long to bring slide in and drive off?

Good advice above. Don't rush or you could regret it someday. Check things out. But to answer your question. I have 4 slides and after all else is done before my final walk-around about 2 min. for all slides.

RE: Florida State Park camping tag good at other FL state parks?

Show your pass that you got, that should be on your window. It should get you into other state parks with-in the same state. Most states do have this courtesy. You can always ask your park office.
