RE: Tire Pressure for G Rated Tires

I keep my G614's at 110 psi. I'm 12,500 on the axles but know the kitchen/entertainment slide is heavier haven't weighed side to side.

RE: Bolts in floor

That's very odd. I think you're better of starting below, see if you can tighten the nut (assuming it's below at least) you could hold the bolt from below too, depending on how much room there is. Might add a nylock nut underneath too so it doesn't back out again. +1

RE: Oven ?

An old tooth brush. I sometimes have the same problem. I light the pilot light with a long butane bar-b-que lighter and if it doesn't light the burner right away I'll hit the burner with the lighter. The problem I think is it takes a minute for the thermocoupler heat up to open the valve.

RE: Using foam in a can to fill gaps

I prefer a gob of silicone caulk.

RE: Levelling Fifth Wheel Side to Side

Come on guys this is not rocket science. Jack it up like you were changing a tire, add the needed shim under that tire then do the same to the other.

RE: Eventually

Get a ladder out and check the caulking on the roof where it meets the side wall especially at the corners. Remember there is a lot of sway while driving down the road that is magnified at the top of your slide even when stowed. Water has a funny way of finding it way down to its exit, it may stop at the floor unseen then puddle and wick up the wall seeming like it entered lower than it really has.

RE: Smart tiles

I installed the smart tiles 2 years ago. I guarantee rough roads have no effect on them after our Alaskan trip last summer.

RE: Am I the only one bothered by a pet charge at RV parks?

If they have a leash free dog area I'm fine with the fee.

RE: Full time in smaller RV

We're run into singles in Scamps and Truck Campers a little to tight for me much less for two but our fifthwheel interior is 33 1/2 ft from the front of the closet to the rear window 35 ft overall, we do have 3 slides, and we've been fine fulltiming in it for 6 years. We try to stay in state of federal campgrounds when possible and have always found a site, we seldom use reservations, though I do check availability on reserve america like the night before. I figure if there are sites many unreserved we'll get one if we stop early which we normally do by 3:00 pm.

RE: Charleston, SC

Try KOA not my favorite but close to what you want to see. We drove past it while we were workcampers at Francis Marion NF and we were 17 miles away at Wambaw Swamp HOV trails. Or you could try here: Buck Hall USFS campground

RE: Replacement mattress

Someone recommended Tuft & Needle mattress to my wife she was unhappy with our RV mattress she wished we had replaced with the custom one we had in the S&B's. She ordered it and is happy with it. Me I could sleep on rocks, at least I did when tent camping.

RE: Guilt about family left behind?

Any parent that thinks their children should not live their life is selfish any child that claims the reason they don't live their life and mom or dad are healthy and self sufficient are using that as an excuse to not live their own. My parents are long gone but DW's mom is 90 and loves hearing our adventures on the road. Besides mom calls, DW sends postcards from all the places we go. We pass through twice and DW flies home before or after the holiday season.

RE: Fighting off boredom on the road

We pull a trailer with our motorcycles on it, so I tag behind in our jeep. I am busy driving, so no time to be bored. We do somewhat the same, I pull the 5th wheel and DW follows in our grocery getter. We did store it last summer on our Alaska trip that was the first time in six years on the road that we rode together towing. She enjoyed watching the scenery and not the back end of the 5th. We have many through the windshield photos.

RE: Sleepless nights

One of my earliest memories is a trip to the zoo. It was a sunny hot summer day I remember walking the winding paths with my parents past the different animal enclosures, the lions and tigers, elephants and giraffes, hippos and wildebeests. There was a fountain that sprayed a single stream straight up like Old Faithful but cool and the breeze blew it over the walkways and it felt so cool on that hot summer day.....ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

RE: How to know if a unit has heat pump

Are these considered OK? It's a Carriage Cameo, so I thought it would be a 4-season coach..... Walls = 8 Ceiling = 16 Floor = 24 Equivalent to 1960's insulation but par for a RV. As for the heat pump even in the warm humid south there are chilly nights where a little heat in nice. So if your in deep south Florida you may never need it but if your in north Florida you will most likely put it to use. We have one in our 5th wheel and use it as needed. As others have stated below 40 degrees it may not produce much heat, but if your not paying a separate electric bill at the park you in you might as well use it till it stops providing heat before relying on the propane furnace which you will be paying for.
