RE: Push to privatize National Park Service campgrounds

Like a lot of things the cost of establishing a federal park, county or national hi-ways, public schools is peanuts compared to the cost of maintaining them year over year and is not considered or factored in. I constantly see news stories decrying the condition of infrastructure, our failing schools, costs of this and that. Ask anybody on the street and they will say that want all of these things to be repaired, supported, brought up to current standards or expectations of service. Now ask these same people how much more they are willing to pay in federal, state, local taxes or are willing to help by serving and you get a lot of crickets. I have no issue if there becomes a private/public contract to address the federal park system. I see no reason NOT to allow one or more companies to take over the concessions, camping, store operations in federal parks. Keep the basic entry fee for federal parks reasonable so most of not all citizens can come experience the parks. They don’t need to eat there, camp there, of buy overpriced made in China souvenirs.

RE: Disinfecting water lines

I too use separate hoses. While the actual chances of contamination are slim, I’d rather not recycle what I already put down the black tank. ;-)

RE: Windshield Replacement Recommendations

I had to replace the windshield on my 2016 Newmar BayStar. Also a large one piece. Insurance pays 100% here in SC for all glass claims if you have comp coverage. Used the Binswanger glass company. They came to my home, measured, ordered, delivered and installed here. Brought enough people to assure it wouldn’t get dropped... Did a great job. BTW they ordered from the same company that made the original.

RE: rolled MH onto the side - and the towed

What aspect of “Diminished Value” are asking about? I’ve only heard that term used when your car is damaged by someone else and want to be compensated for the DV.

RE: Need help with sulphur smelling water

I had the sulfur smell. Changed the water heater anode and gave the water heater a good flush. No more sulfur smell. This is where I’d start. If your WH in the fifth wheel has an anode rod (Suburban?) I’d try a new one. While it’s out, give the WH a good flush. If you fifth wheel sits a long time between use drain the WH.

RE: Suburban Furnace fuse keeps blowing

My take is since you say the fuses blow immediately you have a short somewhere in or feeding the furnace. Check the wires providing power to the furnace for abrasions or bare wires coming in contact with screws or other metal parts.

RE: Does an absorption refrigerator need winterizing

If you are going to run it in cold weather, yes there are some things to do. Please expound on this.

RE: Need ideas for Newmar Bay Star 3626

Looking at your floor plan you don’t seem to have a lot of storage space in the first place. Taking out storage just to hide a small kitchen trash can seems counter productive. BTW we have the same issue with our 2016 BSS 3004. We just opted for a trash can with a lid and placed it where it was least in the way. If you can’t raise the arm rests perhaps a booster cushion would be acceptable?

RE: double trailers

If you go the page referenced by Ford Truck Guy you will find some caveats and exceptions. One is in many states if you want to “triple tow” the thing in the middle has to be a fifth wheel.

RE: Thinking about a new Jeep tow vehicle...need your input...

I bought a 2015 Wrangler 2DR Sahara (automatic) Hard Top a year ago and it has been great. It is 4WD but has never been driven that way, at least by me. Just to be clear it IS NOT full time 4WD. Very easy to setup for towing or (as in my case) get setup for towing. Since you will have to get a new base plate anyhow, I’d suggest the Ready Brute Elite setup for easy of connection, and brake. It pulls quite nicely behind my Newmar 31 ft gasser. There are no fuses to pull, just put transfer case in neutral and transmission in Park (for an automatic) and go.

RE: Electric vehicles. Small diesel generator to charge??

Seems you will need a rather large gen to provide enough energy to both drive the motors and at the same time to charge the batteries.

RE: Valve extenders safe?

I have used the braided hose and the extenders, never a problem. Yeah, me too.

RE: Tire inflation

Not the same but, but my opinion is to use what is on the sticker. IF you find the ride not to your liking, you can get the mh weighed and adjust pressures to what the tire manufacturer says is required to handle the weight.

RE: Rubber roof cleaning

Dawn will clean it, but it also can remove wax on the sides of the RV. Spic and Span is good. For the mold/mildew, add some Clorox bleach to the bucket of wash water. ( I use a 2 gallons yard sprayer). Spray it on the roof, use a medium bristle brush to scrub, not too hard. Let it rest for 10-15 minutes for the bleach to work, rinse it off, really well. Go over the heard to clean spots.

RE: Rheem Hot Water Heater

Only takes a few minutes to burn out an element with no water in the heater.

RE: Dometic AC

All of those little round return ducts should have a filter in them. If not you can make some from window AC foam filters, or call Newmar parts and get some. If you DON’T have filters in them now, you aight also want to have the AC cleaned. BTW... Just grab the center section of the round vent covers and pull straight down. Incase my using the “All” is confusing, just those that are returns need filters.

RE: Refrigerator Outside Vents

Good catch. Just goes to show not everyone takes pride in their work.

RE: atwood water heater

You should put the plug back in if for no other reason than to keep spiders and other creepy crawling things out. Less likely during wintertime but you never know.

RE: Front AC and Microwave won't work on Generator power.

I’d check the breakers on the gen.
