RE: Texas?!? I'm shocked.

In RI, because of the weight of the RV I have to get an inspection every year. Luckily it's only 15.00 for a regular car it's every 2 years and costs $58.00. And "supposedly" that money goes to improve the roads :R

RE: Road to Gettysburg

We actually drove our 31ft class c thru the park a few years back ( 2017)

RE: Flying J Dedicated RV Lanes

We usually look for a Love's truck stop. Never had a problem getting into any of the gasoline lanes, (my RV has the gas fill at the drivers side back wall, and I'm 31ft) and they have dedicated RV overnight parking lanes out front away from the big rigs in back. We usually look for one using the app, call to verify overnight RV parking and go there and in the morning fill up the gas and head out. Most have dump stations and fresh water, some sort of fast food etc... Works for us

RE: Installed a new damper

I remember a similar problem when doing the steering damper. Jacking up the corner of the vehicle is the solution, and it's not too hard. Note that this doesn't mean jacking up with the usual jack points for changing a tire, since those are on the I beams for the axles and lifting them doesn't appreciably change the position of the suspension components relative to each other; instead, jack the frame, the solid part of the axle assembly, or something similarly beefy and independent of the suspension. Changing the front shocks is not a lot of fun, but it's certainly not at all impossible for a DYIer...it's mainly just that there is not great access to the top mounts for wrenching on things. (Paying for any parts is never fun, it goes without saying!) Most videos I have watched show that the guy doing the shocks cut the old ones off at the top instead of messing with the inevitable rusted nuts

RE: Installed a new damper

What brand did you install ? Monroe SC2955. nothing special, and actually the ford branded one actually had "Monroe" imprinted just under the ford logo. The new one is beefier than the OEM ford one though Does "beefier" mean stiffer such that you either feel it in the steering - or are working the power steering system harder all the time without knowing it? "beefier" means that the actual damper body is a slightly bigger diameter than the stock OEM one. It is definitely not going to overwork the power steering hydraulics. It was just a necessary maintenance item. Next are shocks which I'm not looking forward to doing, or paying for

Installed a new damper

After 13 years I figured my original Ford branded steering damper needed to be replaced. Now of course a 15 minute job became a hour job Because the top mounting bolt did not have enough clearance and hit the tie rod... Had to crank the wheels to the right, and jack up the passenger side front corner so the tie rod would be below the bolt.... Oh well... Just a FYI for anyone else thinking of doing this

RE: EZ-Pass?

Question can we just pay the toll as we drive through? Don't want something that I have to keep a minimum balance on. We probably won't be through those states for a long time. some roads are ezpass only, and there may be times that they are unmanned. IIRC my "deposit" was $25 and whenever my balance dipped below $15 they would raise it. bumpy X2!

RE: Attaching solar to roof

OK, for "clarification " it is NOT my camper, and even if it was, myself and the owner agree that water is the RV killer, and don't want any more holes in his roof. The question was put forth for information only. Didn't want to start a war

Attaching solar to roof

"IF" you were going to put Solar panels on your RV's roof and you absolutely could NOT drill holes in your roof (TPO, EPDM etc) how would you attach the panels?

Which shocks IF...

You can't afford bilstein? I'm wondering if waiting to afford bilstein shocks versus getting shocks now is worth it, or even safe and which shock you would recommend

RE: Death Wobble lawsuit

They should do something about it, but if history is correct, large companies have more money, more time to wait, and more lawyers... Sad but true

RE: Yellowstone glacier NP with no reservations

RE: Planning Sept trip to Yellowstone/Glacier NP

We were at Yellowstone last Sept ourselves, stayed at a Grizzly RV Resort just outside the west entrance. Weather was great, not too many people, etc..(of course there is always the obligatory sightseeing bus full of Japanese tourists, but they don't hang around long) We drove the RV from the west entrance down to Grand Teton NP we have a 31ft class c. We saw plenty of large rigs in the park. This Sept, it's Glacier for us also, we were going to go last year but it was on fire..

If money was no object,....

Where would you snowbird at? I'm talking which resort, which state? I'm talking about the best of the best..and how long?

Well, I can see a trend on you tube

There are at least 3 you tube RV channels that have videos up on the Micro-Air Easy start for A/C's. Must be that the company is giving these away to you tube channels for free to get the free advertising... Like the 3in1 rv stuff too... I miss the old days of no commercials you tube...

RE: What to use to brighten rv?

Well, I have already washed it, as I usually do, but I just feel like it isn't the bright white it was. I always wax it. I'm just hesitant to wax over the dingy old finish

What do you use to brighten the outside of your RV (typical filon gelcoat siding) to me it looks dingy and not bright anymore

Assateague island?

Has anyone been there lately? We were there 2 years ago and got a great site right at the dunes side. I read somewhere that they were going to close those sites to RV's because it was too much to keep the sites clear of sand

RE: Fantastic fan issue

Well, thanks for the replies, it turned out to be the 15 amp fuse was blown.. The reason I thought the fuse was good was because the fuses were mislabeled (go figure) I also tried the furnace, and it wouldn't come on either.. So that is how I found which fuse it was, they are on the same fuse
