RE: Campground Rates

Weekends are popular especially for those that still work so they are going to demand a higher price. Lots of folks will come on Thursday and leave Sunday. We as retired, will book Friday thru Monday at our local SP to avoid the long lines at the dump station. But mostly book during the week. Travel today take planning, flexibility, and repeat one and two.

RE: front seats

I have the same issue and called a Newmar. They didn’t offer any help as I was 4+ years out of warranty. However, I know of another owner who also has a 2016 who they are covering. The FlexSteel chairs are garbage from that era which might be why they exited the RV business. Good luck. I also asked about recovering or replacing with new chairs. Was told that the manufacturer was busy building stuff for existing orders and not even talking about building so replacement orders until maybe end of year.

RE: Toilet Tissue...

Use any toilet paper you want, RV toilet paper is a rip off.. If you are going to use a lot of water then this is good advice. However if you don’t use lots of water, and people in your RV use a roll every day, then use single ply tp.

RE: tire covers, yea or nay

If you plan to park a RV for several months where the sun shines, perhaps covers will provide benefit. But a frequently used RV benefits best from keeping the tires clean, and rolling down the road. Using a product like 303 adds a bit of UV protection which is good.

RE: Providing my own WiFi

I don’t know about your phones, but we both have iPhones and iPads (WIFI ONLY) and when required, will connect the iPads to the WIFI hotspot created on the iPhones from the iPads and also the smart TV. We will be installing a cell booster with external antenna to improve reception.

RE: Electric only TT

The only time an all electric TT should be a problem is when used off grid. Then you need a way to recharge the batteries (solar or gen) which is no different than EV’s. Has anyone seen or experienced an EV that needs AC or heat and the impact on distance between charges?

What little trailer?

RE: Trailering after a stroke

I’m not sure what you’re looking for other than a confirmation that with a full recovery you’ll do fine. I can understand a little trepidation on your part. I had similar issues after a quad bypass as to when and what I could do. The first time playing golf after the Dr released me I shot a nice 34 for nine holes and slipped and fell on the pine straw. (Never played that well before or since) Everything held together quite nicely. I’m scheduled for back surgery next month and have concerns about range of motion afterwards. Then I’m scheduled for a cardiac Ablation which means they go into the heart and do some junk which might help, might not, might make things worse. Gotta have faith the Dr has a good nights sleep at a holiday inn and brings his A game. In your case I’m sure the Dr. will not release you until you’re ready, will advise you on ways to prevent future strokes, put you on some expensive meds. Follow the plan.

RE: Hot Water Heater Funny Issue

I see an opportunity for someone to come up with a set of valves similar to the wh bypass ones to allow an external source of preheated water (by solar) to feed the cold water side of the wh. That way you could use it when there is ample sun and warmth. A side benefit is a greater supply of hot water.

RE: Hot Water Heater Funny Issue

Have a brother-in-law whom used to work for Lowe’s in the appliance department. He said anytime someone would ask to see their hot water heaters, he say something like… Sorry sir Lowe’s does not sell hot water heaters, but if you’d like to see an appliance that heats cold water they’re right this way under the water heater sign.

RE: Fuel Mileage on 8.1 Workhorse

It will get better mileage than a Ford V10. But MitchF150 has an accurate and concise answer. When I had a Workhorse on a 30ft depending on conditions got low 8’s to mid 9’s.

RE: RV navigation systemsl

Get a new model Garmin with RV features. Garmin is the top brand.

RE: Supplemental Braking Systems

On our Class A gasser we use NSA Ready Brake. Effective, very easy to install. Will work fine on Class C.

RE: Shower hose fittings problem

Have you tried putting some Teflon tape on the diverted? Could the old hose have been put on skewed and corrupted the threads? All shower hoses have the same sized threads.

RE: RV Mattress

You looking for a standard mattress to replace one that has to fold in order to bring in the slide? I think your best bet is to find a mattress company to build you one, perhaps in two pieces to allow for the folding.

RE: Heated hose

Agree with above regarding using onboard water, refilled as needed. Take care to make sure pump is in an area that is heated by the furnace, or place a small heater or incandescent light bulb in the area.

RE: Tire covers

Or invest in some 303 Aerospace UV protectant. Spray on all plastic parts and rubber seals. Keep tires clean and sprayed, keep tires off the ground if in storage.

RE: Bathroom dispensers

It takes us about a minute to move the shampoo, body wash from the shower to a cabinet above the toilet, and lock the shower door so it doesn’t slide.

RE: Little fans in skylight

I don’t think so. Many or most higher end RV’s may have one or more, many or most that have swapped fans/vents perhaps have replaced the original vent with Fantastic. But I still think the vast majority of the RV world (MH (ABC’s), TT, TC, 5ver) come with the small fan vent in bathrooms and in the kitchen area. Heck even my $110k mh from Newmar came with the little vent fans. Vast majority of fans in RVs are Fantastic Fans. Fan parts
