RE: Slide out leaks

RE: what are these bits for?

the black ones look like grommets for the grate on the gas stove. I might be wrong but that's what they look like to me

RE: Snow: how deep is too deep for camping?

sounds to me like you have never driven in the snow before and are more then likely unprepared for doing so. I would stay home if I were you or take a grader with you to get yourself out of the snow banks

co pilot

I'm losing my co pilot guys. saddest thing to ever happen to me. back in 2016 she went though the fight with ovarian cancer. In February they told her she had liver cancer and this battles is the one she is losing. Dr told me a few weeks ago that she only has at the most four weeks to live. Hospice brought in the bed and meds for her and the house is just packed with people. we finally had to put up a no visitor sign on the door. Luckily we have family members that are nurses and friends to help her. it has been hell my friends, pure hell.

RE: winterizing with compressed air

back in the 70's I winterized late and only blew out the lines, the following spring I had a leak. since then I have blown out the lines and then pumped in anti freeze. I learned the hard way and will always use anti freeze from now on

RE: Best way to run fridge while not level

if you are a half bubble off you are good to go. but in saying that it is best to be the half bubble off front to back then side to side. the tubes run front to back in the back of the fridge so that is the logical way to be off a half bubble

RE: Suggestions on what vehicle to pull 18-20' trailer?

I had a forest river, I sold forest river, I worked on forest river products. I will never own one again. salem is an entry level model. when I had my forest river I towed with a 1/2 ton then a girl hit my truck so I bought a 3/4 ton. man what a difference in towing experience. like night and day difference. I'll never tow with a 1/2 ton again

RE: Gas prices.

they blame gas prices on shortages which I think is BS since the east coast doesn't seem to have that problem this year. it's all on the shoulders of the oil companies. they raise their prices at the drop of a hat and they always make sure they have a hat to drop. they are crooks 100%

RE: Looking for advice on GMC rear shocks

it might be something as simple as the sway controller you have. you might make a few adjustments to the set up and see it that makes a difference

RE: Water Heater Barely Heating

if it a suburban heater, turn the gas switch on and go out to the face of the heater, take the cover off and wiggle the electric connections. it should fire right up

RE: slide topper fabric replacement

tough top awning out of Vancouver Washington. go to RV geeks on you tube, and look up replacement awning and they show you how to measure and how to install the material. not sure if they still give a discount if you mention their name or not. I got mine through them and the material is far Superior to any thing you can get elsewhere. I got both slide out awning for about the same cost as the large slide out I have if I went through a rv dealer and A & E

RE: More beginner RVing questions

it also depends on how hot the our side temps will be. if it gets hot, the first time you flush the toilet you may be in for a rude awaking. Happy Camper will kill that smell if you use it up front before you ever use the toilet.

RE: Some thoughts on Quality

having been in the rv service for a few years I can tell you two things all are really the same but then building an rv is not rocket science.

blackstone griddles

any one use a blackstone griddle while camping? I am thinking of getting one. seems like a lot of trouble when it comes to keeping the thing from rusting

RE: Dometic refrigerator setting while traveling

turn it off and put small reusable Ice packs in the fridge part and then when you get to camp put them in the freezer part. that way you won't have a gas explosion at a service station when you forget to turn of the pilot light. you will get a lot of turn it on while traveling from a lot of lucky people on this site
