RE: What length sewer hose?

You will at some point be at a site that you will be just a few feet short no matter how much hose you carry. So I would buy both the 2 tens and the 15.

RE: What gps do you use?

I use a Garmin 770 and it works well most of the time. I bought it as an upgrade to get the WiFi update ability. It replaced a Garmin 760 which I bought after Apple Maps sent me down a road that had a underpass that was too low for my MH. I have used various brands of GPS units, and several iterations of phone based mapping solutions and they all have their failings and will from time to time cause you to slap your forehead and yell at the beoch in the box. I won’t use any Google based product or applications for various reasons, but primarily they could not fine my home. Many people have used it to try to find my place (on a major road) only to be sent down the wrong way.

RE: Purchasing a Winterized RV

I’d wait until you could see it, inspect it, test it under camping conditions before signing for it. Things get fixed faster on a pending sale than they do after the sale. While you may have the itch to buy one now, now is not a good time. Unless of course it’s a really really good deal.

RE: 4 seatbelts NOT facing sideways

Take a look at the Winnebago Fuse 23T. Should be able to add a second set of belts on the dinette. Not sure if it would handle four adults but should work for two kids.

RE: Buying travel trailer by phone w/o visiting dealership?

I would not commit to buy one until I actually saw it, went through it, and documented all the good/bad and have an agreement they will address any bad. If it’s 300 miles away, getting items corrected after the sale will be a true PIA unless you’re willing to do them yourself. Having been through a purchase of a new MH just 90 miles away I can attest getting warranty work performed at a distance is not something I want to do again. Unless there isn’t a dealer closer selling similar units at a competitive price, I say don’t.

RE: Pull Through or Back in sites? Which do you prefer.

Pull through mainly so don’t have to unhook toad until I want or need to.

RE: Tire UV Protection

Keep the tires washed. The biggest issue is just letting them sit for months covered or not. They are meant to roll so roll them down the road from time to time, and not just “around the block”.

RE: What's up with RV names??

I guess my Newmar Bay Star Sport 3004 is just a boring name for a really nice MH.

RE: Building New Campground. Opinions Welcome!

The real question is what other attractions are in the area to make this a destination type trip? Easy on easy off is great and I would prefer something off the interstate to avoid road noise myself. Bingo... Why would a potential customer be in the area anyway? What are you building or is nearby that would convince someone to stay more than overnight? If I’m just needing an overnight then what you have proposed is an expense I wouldn’t want to pay for thru higher fees, nor would I drive 12 miles to stay there.

RE: Disapointed with new Garmin

Which model Garmin?

RE: Laptop or Tablet computer -- I need a new one.

If you think you need MS Access they perhaps you should look into MS Surface. I would think that for 40 people you could just as well use IOS Numbers. MS supports office on IOS if you need it. Right now I can do all I need on my iPhone and IPad except my taxes.

RE: Heat pump operating range

The net from the above posts (including mine) is that your HP’s are not going to do it for you but you need to look at your manuals for your thermostat and heat pump to determine what is the right thing to do. Some heat pumps don’t have heat strips. Mine don’t but as stated, turns on the furnace. Read your manual.

RE: Small Class A's

Newmar has some very nice smaller MH’s with slides to make it nice and roomy. We have the Bay Star Sport 3004 which they only made for one year, but with all slides out, plenty of room for two people.

RE: Heat pump operating range

Your heat pumps will most likely turn themselves off way before the outside temp hits 7F. I know mine will quit somewhere north of 25f (manual say 30) and AUTOMATICALLY switch over to furnace, and switch back to HP when the outside temp reaches a workable temp (manual says 35). I have to believe yours is similar.

RE: Gee,No More Winnebago/Itasca Elipse/Tour/GrandTour/ElpsUltra

So have they or are they coming out with a new line or equivalent models?

RE: Grill

OP did not say if he was wanting gas or charcoal so I’ll offer up a Weber Smokey Joe. Comes in two sizes both good for two people and provide a much better flavor than gas can ever do. I’ve had both. Very compact, can store everything ( cleaning tools, fuel, etc ) inside and inexpensive.

RE: Largest, Cheapest Class A or Travel Trailer?

Sounds like human trafficking!

RE: Bike Hauling Question

What’s wrong with putting it in the bed of the truck? May have to remove the wheels but ... Otherwise put it inside the trailer.

RE: Why is my trailer "model 19N" instead of "model 17"

Ah! The difference between a guideline and a rule. As a rule, the model number is not a true indicator of length, as a guideline it’s an approximation (or totally meaningless).

RE: Buy now and finance or wait and pay cash

I’d wait and buy used in Florida when you are at or near fulltiming. Decide then how much you have to spend. We don’t full time but decided it was better for use to finance rather then selling cash producing assets.
