RE: Pets riding in trailer

Let's put it this way. Are you a parent that would let your kids ride in the trailer? Dogs have the mental capacity of a 2 year old human.

RE: Pets riding in trailer

As far as I know it is against the law and also dangerous.

Thanks mgirardo.

RE: camera

Installation is simple and does not require a computer or Network Video Recorder REO Link does not require a monthly subscription. -Michael Did I read your information correctly. You have a security camera that does not need Wi-Fi? Reason I am asking is we have a RV on a lot and leave it for 6 months out of the year. We DO NOT have Wi-Fi. It would be great if there was something we could hook up to see our rig via Cell Phone.

RE: Norcold frig?

? Is it iced up. Does it need defrosting. Where are you and what are the outside temps. What Temperature are you trying to keep it at. I have my Norcold on No. 6. A muffin fan will work wonders if placed blowing over the evaporator coils outside.

RE: Teton Pass Route 22

I was in that area but don't remember the road. I would shy on going on passes. Get Rand McNally truck atlas and stay on the truck routes. Especially with a rig your size. Also, a good GPS like Garmin for RV would help. I relied on the Truck atlas and compared it with what my GPS was telling me.

RE: Propane Grill

Yes. The little Weber. Put some heavy duty foil around the burner area where it drips to the pan. Keeps it fairly clean and you just need to remove foil occasionally.

RE: Hanging outdoor fan

Just keep in mind, anything you mount to the RV MUST be water proof or you can have a big problem with water intrusion into the wall of the RV.

RE: Break Out Another Thousand....

Let's see ... New turbo, tuner and install $3,300 (Install was cheap) New front end parts (tie rods/ball joints etc) after the dreaded death wobble $2,500. All within the last 2 years. But the trucks been paid off since 2012 so still better than truck payments every month. I figured out the other day, that I spent 16K on the truck for repairs since I got it in 2006. Now 118,000 miles.

RE: Break Out Another Thousand....

I know how you feel. Just spent 3K on my F350 6.0.

RE: Replacing water tank

Good luck! I have the same problem, but I know it is near the top of the tank. So I just leave the valve open. Glad it is GREY water. Let us know how it works out. I know yours is Fresh and not Grey, but it would be interesting how you repair it.

RE: Roof bubbling

Get it fixed. It will only get worse. The dealer is procrastinating hoping the Warranty will run out before it is fixed and then your friend is Screwed. A letter to the BBB won't hurt either.

RE: Lost keys

As someone suggested get a lock smith or dealer to open the door. Then get another RV lock and some extra keys. I think etrailer.com carries spare keys if you supply the number stamped on the key. You could also get a new lock from them if the number is not to be found on the old one on your trailer.

Wonderful pics. Thanks for sharing.

RE: Fiberglass wall bubble

I hear where you are coming from. Many persons just own an RV for short terms for a trip and get rid of them. You would be NOT surprised how many are not washed or waxed. How many people check tire presure before they leave a CG, but then wonder why their tires failed.

This is the first time I have gotten a repsonse from someone affiliated with Good Sam in a positive manner and with apology. I want to commend you for that and appreciate you reaching out to me. Good Sam needs more people like you.

RE: Induction cooktop amps?

Did not see this answer, but on my New Wave induction you have to use magnetic base pots. When shopping just bring a small magnet and if it is attracted to the pot you have a winner.

RE: rv toilet leaking??

Good advise from Dick B If you don't have a main water shut off at the toilet, install one with the main water off. It will save you time in the future. I had a problem a couple of years ago with a Thetford toilets seal leaking, and had problems with replacing it, so I just got a new 320 toilet from Domitec and have had no issues YET with it. WARNING: Parts are hard to get for it. Draw back, but design is better.

RE: Replacing 5th wheel Landing Gear

I used black silicone when I had to replace my jack that had a faulty seal. Be sure you get it good so no mice get in. If you need more than one coat, it is fine. COLOR: TO MAKE MY POST CLEAR. THE SILICONE WAS USED INSIDE THE FRONT COMPARTMENT OF MY 5ER. CAN NOT BE SEEN.
