RE: Interior insulation

interior insulation is not going to help much. Far better to put even a plastic tarp on the exterior with an air gap. Use "space cloth" if you can find it. Yep. since you have the reflectix put it on the outside with the shiny side away from the unit.

RE: 10 ply tires?

Hello Any issues going from d range 8 ply 65 psi to 10 ply 80 psi, on the stock rims on my rockwood 8281ws? Thanks Crawl under the trailer with a flash light and a rag. Look at the back side of your rims for a max inflation stamp.

RE: Choosing a travel trailer

Don't forget access with the slides in. +2 on this. When you go to the dealer have them put the slides in. Then go into the trailer and see what you can access. In my book the bathroom and refrigerator are mandatory for access when closed up. I know that a lot of people say this...its one of the most repeated statements on here. But IMO, that's way down the list on important issues. I certainly would not base my decision on this factor. Personally, I've never been in a place where I couldn't easily press the little switch to extend the slide, even if only stopped for a few minutes. Takes less than 15 seconds each way... Unless you actually follow the manual that says you are not to extend the slides unless the unit is level. I know, dealers do it on the lot all the time. But they don't have to live with the potential issues caused by twisting the slides.

RE: Selling an RV with a lien

That would be something to discuss with your bank. My guess would be they would probably open up a temporary account to put the money into. You can't access it until the paperwork is done and the bank gets their money. Then they would transfer any remaining balance to your account. You would both most likely need to be present to sign paperwork. So it is important to get appointments set up that meet everybody's schedules.

RE: Selling an RV with a lien

Simple bank to bank transaction. The buyer will likely need to get a loan to pay you. The bank they get the loan from would wire the money to your bank. Your bank provides the title. Other than cash do not do the deal any other way. There are too many crooks out there creating bogus cashiers checks and driving off with others people property. And 10 days later when that check doesn't clear....you still owe for the RV the bad guy has half way across the country.

RE: Awning Motor

I had an issue a few years ago where the shaft of the motor was spinning inside the metal cap on the end of the awning. On mine there were two flat sides on the shaft and two corresponding flat spots on the cap. The problem is that there was looseness between the two. Every time you engaged the motor it took another bite out of the cap until it rounded out the hole. Now here is the fun part, you can't buy the $2 cap. They only sell it with a new motor. The cheap and simple fix is to drill a hole through the cap and the shaft and insert a spring pin through the hole.

RE: Auto level leg lift?

Yea, pushing that button a second time can be a real hassle..... We are so spoiled with the push button systems we forget how much work it used to be to level the camper.

RE: Switching tow vehicles

Call Pull-Rite customer service. Tell them your hitch model/serial number and the exact truck you bought and they will tell you exactly what you need.

RE: Doing something wrong with winterizing

Are you using RV Antifreeze or just blowing air through the lines?

RE: weather you like him or not Marcus is standing for the flag

Part of being an American is abiding by the laws of our Country and Municipalities. As a Marine I am always happy to see a fellow American fly a flag. There is one flying 24/7 in my front yard. The size of your flag does not denote the size of your patriotism. The company applied for and was given permission to fly a 25 foot by 40 foot flag. If that flag is not large enough to show that your patriotism exists, what is my 2 foot by 3 foot flag doing? Like was said above, the grossly oversize flag is being used to attract attention to the business. And I would bet it is being deducted as a business expense that would prove it. Marcus, if you want to really support the Veterans you are using to defend your breaking of laws, start insisting that every RV manufacturer produce at least one model of RV that is ADA compliant and affordable.

RE: New Battery boiling

old did not boil new is boiling something is connected wrong Unless old did boil and that was why it needed replaced. Verify that the cable you had hooked to negative post goes to the frame or a good ground nearby. If it does you need to have your charging system checked out.

RE: RT95 Corridor Area Attractions

National Museum of the Marine Corps They have plenty of room for RV parking and free admission. You can easily spend a full day if you like history.

RE: Should I replace my batteries?

If you are still disconnected from power you are essentially dry camping right now. Use the electrical equivalent of what you would in the woods for a few days. If the voltage is where you think it should be, use them for a while longer. I look at it as throwing away money. If you trade out batteries that may have 20 trips left in them, you are using 20 more cycles on you new set that you don't have to. Monitor the old ones until you start seeing poor performance.

RE: Thoughts: 6.5' bed v. 8' bed

For me, I like a four door truck. Add an 8 foot box to that and you are taking up a lot of real-estate. I commonly hear the argument of the long beds are better for towing due to the longer wheel base. But a short bed with a 4 door cab is the same length as a long bed with a two door cab. So virtually no difference in towing. Also the short bed fits in my garage. As for hauling plywood or drywall, if it's only a few sheets I leave the tailgate up. If it is going to be a heavy load, put the tailgate down and use ratchet straps to tie it in. Actually, I tie it in either way.

RE: Broken/ leaking exhaust manifold bolts

Unless you have a good deal of experience, this is a job for a professional. An easy out may work but it will most likely take a lot of heat on that area to have any chance. Those bolt heads broke off for a reason. The bolts are rusted into the holes and you are very likely to break off the easy out. Once that happens and you now have a hardened chunk of steel in the middle of the soft bolt you need to get drilled out, the professional is going to cost even more.
