RE: Slide topper noise dampening

Our second MH had slides and toppers. When raining you could not tell that rain was falling on the slides or the toppers . . . because the noise on the fiberglass roof was so loud. Sorta like the ole boy that was so particular he complained because we wasn't hung with a new rope. Good grief

RE: Charleston SC

Mt Pleasant KOA is actually closer to old Charleston than James Island even if you have to cross the Ravenell Bridge.

RE: Frame stringer to bulkhead broken welds under water tanks

That is a big weight to put on drive on ramps. Will a truck stop service dept let you use their oil change pit long enough to drill the holes and bolt the flanges on. Might be expensive but you may run into someone with a sense of RVing/camping and how important this can be. Just have all your parts ready to go when you pull over the pit

RE: Arizona Hwy 89 ALT info please

Several years ago a friend of ours bought some property in Sedona with the intention of building a house. He never did. We were traveling to the Grand Canyon without a towed vehicle (renting a car when we needed - not a good idea in retrospect) and he asked us to stop by and give him some ideas on the place. Rather than going back south to 17 and then north to Flagstaff the simple route appeared to be 89A. We were in a 36 foot DP w/o a towed. There were some switchbacks that had me nervous from the lack of rails or barriers. Problem was, no place to turn around had I wanted to. All that said, it is doable but it is not any fun nor time to sight see.

RE: FREE Wheel Chair LIft

My wife has MS and uses a mobility scooter. I pick her up and lift her from the scooter to the seat of the CRV. One of the days I will be too old for that. Wish that first item was closer to Atlanta than California.

Quarantine for Florida trip?

We are scheduled to travel to Tampa area sometime in January to have some work done on the MH (remove that ugly nasty plastic film on front) The question bothering me is with the COVID 'spike' we are going through once again, is there an isolation period for Florida and Ft Myers area in particular? I expect to have been vaccinated in the next week or so here in Georgia

RE: How do you transport your mobioity scooter

We transported a mobility scooter for a few years in the back of a Honda Element with the seats up on the wall (Element owners will know what I mean) I could open the gate and then stand the scooter on the rear end and lift it up from the rear. Less than a minute to open gate, load scooter, put the scooter in gear and close the gate. Now we have a lift on the side of the MH that lifts my wife and scooter at the same time. She drives on and off the lift and into/out of the MH. Wish I could buy a brand new Element today. Great towed

RE: splicing aluminum to copper elec wire

I have a transformer by my house with copper cable attached to the aluminum cable coming into the house. The two are joined together with a squeeze-on connector or aluminum. Open to the air and rain in all weather. Only damage is where the squirrels have gnawed the squeeze-on. Comment on that?

RE: Oklahoma State Parks

Spent a week crossing Oklahoma one day! Fought a wind from the South all day long. Amarillo to Ft Smith. Fuel, food and bathroom breaks, it never let up. Big country there. I don't do long hauls now that I have reached "senior" status.

RE: car towing

Janss, thanks for the info. I looked at another source (genuine Honda manual) and found recreational towing. This one says to use the procedure of starting the engine and running through the gears and leaving it in neutral to tow. Apparently the search engine sent me to a later year CRV than what I have. I feel MUCH BETTER now. Thanks again

RE: car towing

Interesting dialog going here. We pulled a '05 Element for quite a while and now we have a Jeep. I just bought a '13 CRV because my wife cannot use her legs and it is hard to get her in the Jeep. Everywhere I read that '14 was the last year you could tow the CRV. I look at the owners manual on line for the '13 and see that 'damage may occur' if towed. Now, did Honda change the on-line information? Is, in fact, is the '13 towable or is it not? The CRV I just bought is not straight shift nor is it 4WD. Have I made a big 'aw shucks" or is Honda covering their backside? Advice and comments please

RE: Dura Shield

In communication with Wayne at uglyshield this morning. Looks like we will do a road trip to Ft Myers if we can find a place to stay close to his business. Not cheap to get the stuff removed, but very difficult and worth the $$$ if you have a hard time moving around. We'll see how it goes and let you guys know the results

RE: Dura Shield

Thanks purple, that is exactly the info and service I am looking for. Perhaps I'll be making a trip to Ft Myers if their prices are right

Dura Shield

Anyone have problem this stuff looking like mildew is growing under it? Seems it started out as tiny dark spots under the film and it has progressively gotten worse until it is just a nasty mess. Now it is under the film on the mid-entry door at the door latch/locks. Very hard to remove the film and the remaining adhesive still has the black "mildew" on.

Confederate monument hidden inside and the protesters around the country haven't found it yet.

RE: jenny ridge venue rv park

I am sure that you know the Swamp is not accessible anywhere just by driving up to the edge. If you are actually want the swamp experience, try Stephen Foster State Park. Canoe rental, boat rental and (sometimes) boat tours. No sewer, but dump stations. We have stayed there several times over the years. I turned 40 YOA in the swamp many years ago as we paddled from Kingfisher Landing to Stephen Foster across that edge of it. Took 3 days but a lot of fun

RE: How to Eternabond around pipes?

The fabric backed Ebond is much easier to deal with when covering curves than the plastic backed. BUT, you have to paint the UV resistent paint on it.

RE: EternaBond vs Kohree RV Seal Repair Tape

If I were depending on a product that will protect me from further trouble and potential structural damage to my coach, I would go with Ebond. I know from experience this is a good product and does what it is supposed to do. That few bucks you save won't amount to squat when you have to repair water damage

RE: Franklin NC to Pigeon Forge TN

If I'm not mistaken, 18 wheelers travel this route. Just saying Commercial vehicles are not allowed thru the Park unless they are specifically permitted. There is some steep areas going up to the Tennessee line and a couple of switchbacks. I would be more concerned coming down into Tennessee from the gap. They have worked on the road trying to make it better, but it is still narrow and very steep for a while. Couple of tunnels, but nothing to worry about. The steep grades and narrow lanes would be a major concern. If you are worried, take 74 at Sylva/Dillsboro over to I-40 and head west to Kodak and come in from the north to Pigeon Forge. That route is longer and is pretty danged hairy when you get into the gorge with the trucks riding your bumper and still there are the curves. Personally, I would do the route thru the Park
