RE: When leaving for the day...

All the above are useful. If someone really wants your spot, they will park their lazy body in your selected spot. We like to believe that almost all campers are honest. We used to travel 100% by motorcycle and if we wanted to tour the area without loosing our spot. We sewed a bright orange cloth about 24" x 24" with a small round grommet in the corners. Placed a sturdy wire tent stake in the grommet. Painted a message on the middle TAKEN by Gene and Lanida. Have not lost a sign yet.

RE: Step down in Class C

It has been over 15 years since we shopped for a motor home so do not have current knowledge on how the Class C chassis are made. We bought a new 2002 R Vision Trail-Light Model 211-S with a 5.7 Chevy with a flat floor from the cab to the rest of the motor home. All of the Chevy's we looked at had flat floors. We looked at a couple Ford's and they had the step down. Our motorhome has a television above the cab instead of a bed.

RE: class c blinds

hello, we just bought a class c. was wondering if there is anyplace to buy inside blinds for the cab windshield and the two side windows. thank you..Another possibility would be what they called "screeneze" or something like that. We bought a pair of vinyl screen socks that slipped over the top of the side doors. They were sized for the year of Ford, Chevy, Dodge chassis. Kept the bugs from passing through if you rolled the windows down a little. Kept the sun from heating up the cab. You could even drive the campground if need be.

RE: B+ motorhomes

Got the B+ out of heated storage after two years about two weeks ago. New battery, new generator carb, antifreeze and temp sender all needed. Plan on a 2-3 day trip before putting back in storage for winter. No use last summer due to both of us having surgeries. Will move to new storage facility, this fall closer to where we summer, with in and out privileges. I had a fuel shut off installed for the generator so I can run the carb dry and fog the intake like we did our boats for 25 years. Seafoam did not keep the carb from gumming up while in storage.What chassis is your Model 213 sitting on? The reason I ask is our Chevy 211-S sits in a metal shed when not used from about late September to middle May and so far has not been a problem. Fires right up. Chassis battery is new in November 2010 and house battery on October 2004. However, the house battery had to be replaced this year. The generator does not get much use, but it is run until the carb is dry. 2004 Chevrolet series 3500 Express Chassis. Chassis battery was new in April 2012 when purchased, since original had to be jumped at seller's location. Have 2 AGM house batteries installed May 2014. 1st set installed in April 2013 before an Alaska trip. Those AGM batteries were destroyed over the next winter by me leaving an 800 watt inverter on, completely draining the batteries and causing them to bulge, would not accept a charge at all. Our generator has 55 hours on the meter, runs great now, hope it does next spring.Teachers Pet - Well after reading more about your battery situation, I guess it has not been so terrible after all. And the Chevy chassis we both have should be comparable.

RE: B+ motorhomes

BPlus - Just by chance, I checked on what is going on this website and noticed that you had submitted a posting. You have an interesting story on why you have a couple of motorhomes. Those are neat picture of both of yours on your signature profile. We too use the RV when going to family picnic's, State Fairs, Outdoor concerts etc. The bathroom in ours gets prestine care and cleanliness. We also still attend Motorcycle rallies in several States. Although, we could use the location bathrooms, we take the RV for that reason. The motorcycles catches a ride in a small fiberglass trailer.

RE: Replace RV door and screen door

I posted this on the Forest River forum and received a reply about salvage yards. I called the yards and no luck. Have also called Forest River and keep leaving messages which no one returns. Anyone have thoughts on how to get replacement doors for our 2005 Lexington 255 GTS? ThanksDo you have a RV Dealership in your area? For example, we have a dealer that sold Forest Rivers and I believe he continues to do so. You might review his website at - Leach has been in business for years and does have a good reputation.
