RE: rv extension cord

Agree with Wiscamper. But at the same time there is always the chance of you feeling the need to say Well Darn... And you need just two more feet... Happy travels.

RE: Myrtle Beach

Myrtle Beach State Park. Great place. Close to all you could care to do. Plenty of nice shady spots. Great beach, fishing pier

RE: Question for Class A owners.

The only real challenge comes if for whatever reason they need to pull the engine. I’ve seen them go through the driver door (if there is one) or have to remove the windshield.

RE: Triple digit heat! Generator won't run

How much fuel is in the MH? How long has it been since you last used the gen ?

RE: Smaller Class C

Does it need to be a C? Several small class A’s in or close to that length. Not sure you’re gonna find units that short with a bigger shower. Take a look at the Winnebago Outlook C Class - 27D.

RE: Fuel economy and additives

If you’re getting 7.5 then you’re doing good. There’s not really much you can do that will improve upon that. The big aerodynamically challenged, heavy as heck RV prevents any real fuel efficiency. Keep the speed down, light foot on the pedal, try NOT using cruise. Cruise is designed to keep your speed as set, regardless of fuel usage. Keep your tire pressures placard numbers. Lower pressures for a better ride may reduce mileage, but not significantly I suppose. Some owners will invest in a Banks power pack, or a 5 Star tune. I know no facts as to how much they help.

RE: To tire shine/gloss or not?

Nothing is actually NEEDED to be used on tires other than giving them a good bath from time to time. Using petroleum based products would not be wise, using Aerospace 303 may provide some UV protection. I use it, mainly because... well just because.

RE: Propane fill for parked motorhome?

Why did the local propane dealer say no? My provider has no issue filling my home tank then topping off my MH tank. Yeah it’s not a lot of propane, but they have a happy customer. I’ve also seen a propane truck come to a local state park and fill MH’s. I’m sure there is a delivery charge.

RE: Class A automatic leveling never works!

As above, define what is happening when you auto level. We’ve had to train the system as to what is level, and it helps. (We have a different system than you, for mine there is a procedure for “setting the null” which is techno babel for telling the system what is level) At the same time, I’ll say that IF the site is reasonably level to start with, we will press the auto level. Otherwise we will level it manually using the buttons on the controller. Even then sometimes we have to adjust the location of the MH on the site to get it the way we want it. We don’t use leveling blocks, but do have some wood blocks that I’ll take with us if I know we will be parked on dirt or gravel. These are primarily for providing a good base, so just a single board per foot. And we have had auto level crack a windshield so be aware.

RE: Battery maintenance

You might want to establish a preventive maintenance routine and schedule to include battery water level check, drain the water heater per the manual, blow out the burner tubes of the wh, furnace, refrigerator, and make sure all external areas of these are clean and free of bugs and debris. Make sure all hinges for the steps, moving parts of the stabilizers, have a squirt of silicone lube, or wiped down with WD40. Since your unit is brand new, you may want to look at a spray on / wipe off product that has UV protection. Two the come to mind are 303 Protectant, and Lucas Slick Mist. Both are very easy to use, and as a result don’t take long or much energy to do but will help keep the TT looking new for a long time.

RE: North Carolina Rout 26 to Charleston

26 from Asheville to Charleston is a pleasant enough trip. There is one or two steep grades (down) in the Saludas/Hendersonville area but not too bad. It can get real busy going through Columbia and Charleston.

RE: 50 AMP and plugging in at home

Thanks very much for the quick responses, a bit more complicated than I thought. I will likely have a 50 AMP breaker installed in the house panel wtih an appropriate recepticle. This is the correct thing to do. You won’t regret it.

RE: Bunk house conundrum and older kids

My kids are in the late 30’s married with no kids. My wife has a niece and grand nephew. She wanted to get bunk beds incase the kid wants to go along. So far in three years, just three times. However, the bottom bunk sans mattress makes a great place for ( at various times ) a dog kennel, cat kennel and litter box location, their assorted foods and toys. Upper bunk used for storage most of the times and it works out well. Just a an idea.

RE: Gmail not Working anymore in my Edge browser

I gave up on Windows a few years ago. I could never get Edge to work as well as Explorer, and finally just decided to convert to iOS and Apple. I can do all I need to do on my iPhone or iPad. Only use my Microsoft laptop do do my taxes.

RE: What to use to brighten rv?

Barkeepers Friend in a trial area will do a good job on getting it clean.

Only commercial vehicles need stop.

RE: Dinghy

Do a Jeep Wrangler, you will eventually. :) Totally agree. Our first toad was a nice Chevy Sonic, and it was a great toad and DD, but limits you where you can go. (Beach, woods, badlands). So we swapped it for a 2DR Jeep and it is even easier to hookup than the Sonic which was a piece of cake. Take the “Not usable by humans” back seat out and it’s a good place to put the dogs. We did the no toad thing for a few years, and it was a PIA to rent cars, especially when you find out that where you want to go doesn’t have them, and if that’s true, good luck getting an Uber either.

RE: Pop up camper vs hard sided camper

That’s quite a change from a Class A (of any size or type) to a truck camper (of any size of type). What is the DW trying to avoid that would have her want/accept a TC? Just curious. Lots of options.
