RE: RV cover vs shed?

Could you build a covered cover (carport) that closely matches the style of your house? Attached or standalone? I have a log cabin and built a wood carport next to it matching the colors, shingles, roof style. It’s big enough for the MH, and two cars with room to spare.

RE: new mattress needed, any reason to buy from camping world?

Measure the size of the platform exactly and check with bed in a box.

RE: Fuel Costs

At the risk of opening a can of worms, the increase is due in part from the political changes coming. Stopping the XL pipeline, no more leases for oil or gas exploration on federal lands,

RE: Federal Mask mandate

Stay out of federal buildings, federal property and you’ll be fine.

RE: Let's beat this horse once again

You will get more for your money if you buy and older DP than newer gasser. But you will also spend more on ongoing maintenance.

RE: Charleston SC

If you can’t get into James Island, there is a very nice KOA in Mount Pleasant. Extremely well maintained, nice people.

RE: Biltmore

The two KOA’s are a bit away from Asheville. There is a small CG in Weaverville just north of Asheville with good people, well maintained. Campfire Lodgings. I also found these: Good Sam CG’s

RE: Norton Security

Just a note: I rarely use my Windows Surface but still keep it current with all updates especially the built in security. Have switched almost exclusively to IOS based products. Regardless, the best security system is you and what you click on, reply to, download. One of the things a do is never open unsolicited email, even if it appears to be from someone or entity you do business with. Always validate the sender email address.

RE: Using a Cellular Tablet?

We use our IPhones for just about everything but sometimes we want the larger screes that iPad’s offer and then we use the phones as hot spots for the IPads. My iPad Pro is a bit heavy to use for along time unless it’s in its stand/keyboard.

RE: Plumbing pressure relief

I like installing a small bladder type pressure tank. It makes the whole water system work nicer. I had issue with my WH dribbling out the relief valve and none of the common remedies were effective. I had a small bladder tank installed on the cold water side of the WH and it solved my problem. And added plus was the pump did not start immediately when I turned on a faucet.

RE: Long Trips And Medicine Damage

The pill / capsule manufactures (not all) typically stuff cotton in the bottles to help the product from being damaged during transport. Seems like a cheap and easy solution.

RE: Need help with jeep jk front bumper

Why not get a Blue ox since you already have that equipment? Amazon I second just getting a Blue OX or Roadmaster baseplate, unless you absolutely want a new bumper. Unless you already have a braking system, take a look at Ready Brake very easy to install on your Jeep, very easy to hookup/unhook.

RE: question about service

P.S. - Warranty service work is meant to piss you off so much that you never bring it back again. Very accurate statement from my experience with CW & Manufacturer. A lot of finger pointing as to who the hold up in the process. You do end up fixing a lot of stuff yourself just so you don't have to deal with the back and forth.

RE: Chevy Spark

We used to tow a Chevy Sonic and all was good except when we wanted to go somewhere the Sonic couldn’t such as Monument Valley. When we got home we bought a lightly used Jeep Wrangler and now we can go where we want when we want. Easy to setup for tow, easy to connect and disconnect. Check into a Ready Brute tow package.

RE: GVWR (lbs/kgs) 14500

The 2020 Jayco Grayhawk has a GVWR of 14,500 lbs Does this include the towing capacity of 7,500 lbs thanks Nope. Look for the GCWR rating which is the maximum COMBINED weight for the RV and anything you want to tow.

RE: RV lighting

Light fixtures in most RV’s if not all are 12v and run off the battery, even when plugged into 110 power. Why did this not come up when you were looking? Anyhow, if the lenses are clear perhaps you can find opaque ones. Change out the lights for ones that better serve the need.

RE: Which TT has the Best Kitchen and Why?

Have you actually been in the 22ft Bambi? Looking at the exterior there is very little if any storage for stuff you wouldn’t want inside. That’s a lot of money to be paying for nostalgia and name. Since you are both chef’s, I have to assume you will want to bring along a lot of cookware, knives, spices, cutting boards. All well and good but all have space requirements. Take time to figure out what you want to bring along in food stuffs, clothes, towels, cookery, eating stuff (plates, utensils, glassware), electronic equipment including blenders, warmers, countertop items and envision where it all is going to go in whatever size you think you want. Also, taking a quick look online at the specs for the X5 they tell you the weight of the car, how much it can tow, hitch weight. What I don’t see is the gross combined weight rating (GCWR) which is important to know. If it says the max weight or GVWR of the x5 is 6,000 and it can tow 6,000 that doesn’t mean you can fully load up the X5 and still tow 6,000. Perhaps your owners manual will have this information. Just my thoughts

RE: Blocking "Restricted" Calls on Smartphone

Got my iPhone set that only my contacts will ring the phone, others go straight to voicemail. Legitimate callers always leave a message. The rest, to heck with them. Exactly. Now they need the same function for txt messages.

RE: Tiffin Acquired by Thor for 300mil.

“ They are pushing out units as fast as they can with their existing work force and will pay the Dealers to fix problems they miss in Red Bay” This process is one reason most if not all RV manufactures have an iffy to bad quality reputation. They let known issues out the door assuming the dealer will fix them, perhaps before customers finds them. Unfortunately their assumption is wrong. Many dealers do very little other than wash it, and perhaps fix any glaringly obvious issues before selling the RV to a customer. Then once it’s in the customers hands getting it fixed under warranty can be a real PIA. At least that was my experience with my BSS from Newmar.

RE: Hunting Island or Huntington Beach

HBSP or MBSP are our two favorite beach state parks. HISP was our favorite until the two hurricanes devastated the beach side CG. We never really did like the off beach CG but you might. Either of are favorites are close to a bunch of good restaurants, entertainment of all types, golf, and both have great beaches. Both now have more full hookups.
