RE: Best alternative to RV antifreeze.

As long as you won't be drinking it, windshield washer fluid works.

RE: Where to park for a month in MS

Buccaneer SP in Waveland is quite reasonable and is a nice spot. It was the only place we stayed for 2 weeks on last winter's trip around the southeast. X2 They have monthly rates during the winter. I've been spending part of each winter there for several years. UPS and FedEx deliver to sites and they'll hold mail for you in the office. They won't sign for anything though.

RE: How will the abolishment of Medicare affect your RVing?

Where do people come up with this stuff? The nice people on TV gave him the inside scoop. I wish it were true.

RE: Broken down I65 exit 34.

My problem didn't involve hydraulics but I've used Mr. Mobiles RV Service (850-398-6318) near where you are. If they can't help I bet they know who can. Oops! I jumped to the conclusion that you are on the portion of I65 that I'm most familiar with in AL.

RE: Liability

Before towing a friend's FW I asked my insurance agent that question. He said the claim would be against my insurance.

RE: How much does your dealer location matter in a purchase?

Ive never heard of buying from the factory? All coach builders I know of have you buy through the dealer. Some let you pick up from the factory like Newmar but you buy it through the dealer! This was a FW. Specifically a NuWa Hitchhiker. Ordered from and delivered at the factory in Chanute, KS. They are now sales only. No production.

RE: How much does your dealer location matter in a purchase?

To me...zero. I bought my first two TTs from a nearby dealer thinking customer loyalty would payoff in after sale support. It didn't. They refused to do any warranty work. I know readers are thinking there must be more to this. There isn't. I bought my current FW at the factory 1000 miles away and I'd do it again.

RE: Hitchhiker fith wheel tire wear

I just replaced tires on my HH after 5 years and probably 40 or 50k miles. No unusual wear.

RE: Bigfoot Leveling System Problems

ljr: I hope that KRC solved the problem for you. My temporary Gorilla Tape application (which doesn't look too great) seems to have worked OK on our trip to Montana and return this past summer. However, I'm not going to pull my fiver all the way from Tucson to Kansas to have the tank & pump moved. It should have been engineered correctly by Quadra in the first place. Mike Mike I stop at KRC once per year anyway so it was no hardship for me. They told me that the installation instructions from Quadra hadn't changed since my Hitchhiker was built. I wonder what they'll do if somebody shows up wanting a new BF install.

RE: Bigfoot Leveling System Problems

I just talked to Quadra Tech Support (again). They said they changed their new installs to avoid this problem. The tank and pump are now inside the frame. I have a service appointment coming up NuWa (aka: Kansas RV Center) in Chanute. I'm waiting to hear if they can move mine while I'm there. What do you do if your frame is enclosed and you have tanks on the inside of the frame? Good question. Only the front portion of mine around the tanks is fully enclosed. I'm hoping there is room for the move in the rear but I haven't heard from NuWa yet. I'm talking to Eric at Quadra/Bigfoot Technical Support and Daryl at the Kansas RV Center Service Department. I just left KRC. They found room INSIDE my tank enclosure for the pump/tank assemblies. I think (hope) my problems are over. If you have the facilities to make custom hoses and modify the belly enclosure it doesn't seem like a big job. I don't. KRC does.

RE: How to aim portable Dish Network satellite

I use Dishpointer.com. If you're going to do this very often, a decent meter is a worthwhile investment.

RE: Colorado residents don't want tourists anymore

It's the same in all tourist areas, too many people with too much time and money for the non shop owning locals. Been like that in the Adirondacks for years. NYC folks buying up town and lake property, driving up taxes and apartment rentals so much the locals have to move to somewhere more affordable. I tend to avoid places with active NYC infestations too.

RE: Big Foot vs Level Up

I have factory installed BF on my FW. I'd never be without a leveling system but I'm not sure I'd buy another BF. I've had repeated problems with water contamination in the rear fluid tanks. So far none of the manufacture's suggested fixes have worked.

RE: Colorado residents don't want tourists anymore

During my last trip around CO i thought I picked up some negative vibes. I haven't been back and have no such plans in the foreseeable future. Not really a big deal for me. It's a big country.

RE: recommendations on tire pressure monitors

I have had the Pressure Pro system for 9 years, with 10 sensors on my truck, 5th wheel and boat trailer. Had 1 sensor fail 3 years ago but no other problems and original sensors have the original batteries. I do not full time so sensors come off for the 4 months I am at home. Service has been great when needed. I'm almost full time with PP also with 10 sensors for 9 years. No sensor failures. They improved the seals once but sent an upgrade kit at no charge. They have accurately warned me of slow leaks twice. Most recently last week. No experience with other brands so I can't compare but they work.

RE: Mail

I changed my home address to a box at the UPS Store. They will accept deliveries via any means. Whenever I stop somewhere for awhile I email them to have it all forwarded.

RE: Bigfoot Leveling System Problems

I have an appointment at KRC next month to move my pump/tank assemblies back and inside the frame with longer hoses. I'll post when it's done and everything works (or doesn't).
