RE: New Circular GS Insurance Add

Allstate used to put out ads like that. Think they still do. Back in the 70s they beat my present insuranse at that time by a lot. I switched over. Next bill came in higher than my previous insurance. They love to play games.

RE: Black Tank Backing Up-Please help!

As a starter I would check the vent to make sure it is open. Probably 2 elows before the tank may not be the best design. You may want to check to see if there is some restriction in the elbows that is not getting completely cleared out. Well the double 45 degree elbows I really don't care for at all. As far as restriction at those elbows I highly doubt as I pretty much have visual access to the first 45deg and it looks pretty clear when it's not backed up. My hunch is that the issue is where the pipe dumps into the tank as it takes a couple days for the stuff to reach the toilet. If it is indeed a bad design I could easily sell it and find something else as I don't have a lot of money into it. I really do LOVE the floorplan and everything else about it for my use of occasional dry camping but dealing with this is NOT what I signed up for lol. My previous TT was a great black tank design. Deep tank and no problems. My MH has a very shallow wide tank and I have to really pour in the water when I flush. In fact it is so shallow a couple of uses without a lot of water will start backing up right below where it empties into the tank. I try to make the bowl pretty full before I push the lever all the way down so lots of water goes in.

RE: Advice for green newbies

You have heart issues (pots) your wife has heart issues. Why would you want to travel far from your doctors. What will happen if you take ill in Wyoming (or other place) and cannot drive the rig? Is your wife capable. Picking on WY medical?:B . Actually a good point. We live in NW WY. Although Cody has a fancy hospital if we need a good DR for heart problems or other serious med problems we have to drive a 100 miles to Billings, MT. We have been in a few states in rural areas where fellow FT campers were having devastating med problems. Sad and gets my attention. Cases where husband doing 100% of driving stuck in an area with less than good medical and in serious condition and wife unable to drive RV and unable to pay to have it moved. These problems aren't totally rare with older seniors. However, We FT'd for about 4 years 2000 - 2004. Maybe others can chime in but I didn't find FTing a cheap way to live. JMHO. We didn't quit FTing because of med problems or the expense. We got bored and were cramped into a small box. Being married 45 years we love rural and we love RVing. A few months a year in our MH is about all we can take.

RE: leveling fifth wheel

No matter how unlevel a TT or 5ver is I have never seen doors unable to be closed unless you are using stablizer jacks in an attempt to level the unit and torqing the frame.

RE: Gasoline Auxiliary Fuel Tank Questions

I don't think you can buy them leagally for gas any more. In the 80s vehicles could be ordered with extra tanks. Or fabricators would build and install them. If you look at extra tanks now they indicate "diesel only". I suppose you could have one built and install it yourself. A shame but the old days are gone forever.

RE: Leak on the roof...can I really do this myself?

You didn't say how agile you were. I agree with previous post if you feel uncomfortable they have techs that work in the RV parks. If you do go on the roof the leak is probably around fridge vent.If you have never been on the roof bet there are several places that need attention. Most use Dicor self leveling on the roof.

RE: Hemet. Golden Village Palms

Stayed there for 2 weeks couple of years ago. I read about clickish in reviews but ignored that. Very clickish crowd. Just strange the way they run their parties. That wasn't a big problem. The big complaint was we were inundated with ants. Thousands of ants. When you check in they tell you about ant problems. Ants were taking over our MH. We sprayed and sprayed. Office sent guy over and he sprayed. Glad it was only 2 weeks. Wi-Fi terrible. Hemet is an OK town. Park has good security. However, we never wandered around outside the park at night. We lived in CA for years. Hemet is OK but would never live there. We did not go back last year and doubt we will ever go back. We stayed at the Pehchanga RV park in Temecula. Much nicer town and very nice clean park. Also closer to shopping and restaurants. Casino on the property but we didn't go to the casino. Concrete pads and grass. We prefer Pehchanga.

RE: Interstate 80

One good over night stop off is Little America. Truck stop but not much noise. Trucks are way over on east side. Unfortunately they closed the restaurant. Fast food only. Just watch wx reports for high winds. www.wyoroad/info or 511. The area to really watch for wind is from Rawlins to Cheyenne.

RE: Just got some bad news, could use some perspective.

I suspect dealer isn't talking because he wants more $$$ for the change over to 2016.

RE: Have you experienced a tire blow out...?

Left front on my F250 PU. Goodyear that came on the PU. With new steering stablizers hardly feel anything in steering wheel. Unable to contact GS. Called a tire dealer in Cody. They came out and put on the spare. Drove into town and replaced tires with Hankook since the Goodyears had 50,000 miles on them. When we got home signed up for Coach net.

RE: Good Sam Club gone bad

I remember another company that did that stuff years ago. Readers digest. They would send a bill. If you complained they would tell you it was because you had a free trial subscription. Welcome to big business fraud. If we did that stuff we'd be in jail.

RE: Leak around bathroom skylight; purchase or not?

There is more than you can see. I have a 2013 MH. I had a minor leak in the sky light. The first thing I noticed was water under the shower. Apparently came down inside the wall. Fortunately I caught it right away and repaired the problem. I suspect there may be more of a problem than you can see.

RE: Best Dispersed areas in the West

Guess you tried all the spots in CA. One of my favorite spots in CA was at the top of Alamo mountain. Up the grape vine and off hungary valley road then west. Need to call the ranger station to make sure south gate is open. I've had a 10 1/2 ft camper up there. Don't know about 5ver. Other favorite spot is north of Cody and west. Out 120 then west over dead indian pass. When the road makes a hard right to go over huge bridge before Crandall you go straight on the gravel. Follow to the end. You will be in Sunlight basin. You will see a few TTs out there. All locals. No water except creek. Pit toilets. The camp ground is not marked. You would need a forest service map. A few other camp grounds along the way that are marked.

RE: Camping World Still Sucks

I have been reading about the problems with CW filling orders for quite a while on RV.NET. I just figure it isn't worth the trouble ordering from CW when I can get the same products for the same price or cheaper, even when on sale, from numerous other vendors on the internet. Amazon and Tweetys to list a couple. The only time it takes Amazon a month to get it to me is when the item is shipped directly from China.

RE: Please don't do this

I have seen so many standing between the units. I shudder. What are they thinking. I guess not thinking.

RE: Regulated propane quick connect -who connects what?

Camco connector. I have a BBQ grill and also a gas firepit. However, Some are not set up. Either take regulator off youself or like the Lowes firepit I took a connector to a propane dealer and they made up the hose. Only Camco connectors seem to fit. The Lowes firepit has the regulator crimped to the hose.

RE: Need for exit plan?

I suppose as health deteriates just letting the loan company take the Rv wouldn't be all that bad if you had another place to stay. Especially if you are upside down and owe more than it is worth. It is a sad subject but if I owe money when I leave this world it may be better than leaving money for others to fight over.
