RE: Harbor Freight solar working great!!

Do you have an interrupter to keep the panels from over charging or are you monitoring the batteries and disconnecting when they are full?

RV parks near Geogretown, Ky

Thinking of going to the Rode to the Horse next March. Does anyone have suggestions for good RV parks near Georgetown, Ky.? Also what to expect for temperatures that time of year.

RE: Gnats

My wife uses the vinegar trick too and it works very well. You can also use beer as the attractant in place of the vinegar, works great.

RE: Foam in tires

I had the same initial reaction as carringb. I too didn't think you could use foam filled tires on highway speed tires. I do know on a UTV they prevent flats but, give a very rough ride as the tires are very unforgiving of logs, bumps, rocks, Etc.

RE: Leaving Trailer Hooked Up

The next one might put California in the Pacific. Maybe it is time for a little traveling east for the next month or so. Just sayin', California has had some major moral problems for a long time maybe the big guy is calling!

RE: Table Rock Lake, Mo

There are a lot of great campgrounds on the lake. Also there are lots of things to see and do in the area. This campground is one of my favorites as it is right on the water.

Table Rock Lake, Mo

We are fortunate or unfortunate ( can't rv there) to have a second home at Table Rock lake. The normal water level is 915' and it is now 921'. We were out in the boat today and we have a beautiful camping park on the lake called Mill Creek Park that has a peninsula with camping spots all along it. When went by today I took a couple of pictures. This is camping on the water! https://i.imgur.com/N7Icq3El.jpg

RE: Looking into a 2017 Grand Design

Busdriver, Nebraska Furniture Mart. Probably a local furniture store. We have bought Flexsteel and Triumph ( makers of quality motorcycle seats). Both manufactures have 60-65" love seats that fit in place of OEM love seats in RV's and are power recline. Backs come off for easy loading and zero wall clearance or very close to it. We have used both and they work extremely well in RV's. Your local furniture store should have them and a little scuff on the back or side will never be seen for a clearance. We have bought them for $399 & $499. Sometimes we have had to watch for a couple weeks to find what we want but well worth the wait.

RE: Looking into a 2017 Grand Design

We have a 2016 GD 5th 303rls and could not be happier. It has been a great rv. Our prior was a Keystone Outback Sydney edition 5th and we enjoyed it but had quite a few problems with it. Electrical mainly and some plumbing. The GD Reflection has not had any problems other than the theater seating love seat started to peel. A quick trip to NFS and we replaced it with an electric reclining love seat from the clearance store for $499 much cheaper and better quality than RV furniture.

RE: Recommendations for 30 -32 ft 5th wheel

We got a 2016 GD 303rls about a year ago and could not be happier. No trouble at all and we really like the layout. Head and shoulders above our Keystone Outback Sydney Ed.

RE: Storage compartment door repair or replacement

I have 2 new ones that if they are the correct size I would sell very cheap. They are just taking up space in my garage. I bought them for a Keystone and we sold it before I put them on. PM me if you are interested.

RE: Black Hills in October

We really liked Custers Gulch. Great people and very nice clean park. Be aware that a snow is a good possibility that time of year. A big blizzard hit there in October a few years ago.

RE: Keystone Outback tire wear

We had a Keystone Outback 28rls and when we bought it used it had brand new tires on it. I thought WOW this is great, shouldn't need tires for several years. One year later they had both tires on the drivers side wore out on the insides. After a few measurements I realized why it had new tires on it. Both axles were bent. I replaced both axles with heavier ones and had no more problems after that. I think the original axles were so borderline that a pot hole or curb hit would easily bend them.

RE: Replacing fake leather sofa sleeper

Cavie, You are right on the money! We had the same thing going on with the fake leather in ours too. We went to Nebraska Furniture Mart and went to the clearance area. Found a Flexsteel power reclining in REAL leather for $399 (regular $1500) and the backs remove. Went in the 5th wheel slick as a whistle. Only had a couple mars on the back that were very minor Zero clearance recline so it works perfect and is very good quality unlike the RV bunk it replaced.

RE: need title

My hunting 5th wheel is a 1987 Coachman and it had a lost title when I bought it. I had to take it to be inspected by the Kansas Highway patrol to match the bill of sale ID numbers to the trailer and a brief statement from the seller saying the title was lost. Then I could apply for a title, which I did. Very easy to do and I received a title. Each state maybe different so you need to check your states requirements. Very easy to do.

RE: Rafter J-Bar / Custer / Rushmore

The other negative is some of the businesses adjust their prices during bike week and get a premium for their products. Sad that they do this but, we were warned by locals to get what supplies we needed the week before if possible.

RE: 2nd AC unit worth it?

We have a 33' Reflection 303rls with 2 air units. The second unit is very nice when you pull into a camp site and it is 95* and everything in the unit is hot. We turn both on at first and it really cools down quick. After the initial cool down one unit works great even in the mid 90's. When sleeping running only the living area AC is very quiet and the ducted AC keeps the bedroom just right.
