RE: RV Tank Maintenance

Happy Camper seems to do a good job, use plenty of water. I’ve cubes do zip, nada, zilch.

RE: Newmar Ventana LE Recommended Tire Pressures

...Is there an opinion as to what weights are best both for smooth driving/safety and diesel mileage I’ll add in tire wear, tire longevity The pressures on the placard are your best bet to achieve your stated goals. Lowering your pressures can give you a better ride, but may affect other objectives. Keep in mind the tire chart simply states the minimum pressure required to support the weight. No other factors included.

RE: Connecting to the internet

Most campgrounds that offer free WIFI / internet are totally under powered to handle the demand. Most people want to treat CG internet as if they were at their home and stream video, download updates, or other bandwidth intensive tasks. If you have a real need to have fast internet then be prepared to provide it yourself.

RE: Opinion on Resort Fees ?

No different than Sirius radio advertising a cheap rate then adding mandatory fees. One reason I’ll not do business with them.

RE: Fan recommendations?

Small clip on fans outside will be next to worthless as far as moving air, especially enough air to keep you cool(er). Fans are good for keeping flying/biting critters at bay as well, but again you need a lot of air, moving at a nice clip. We use a big 3 speed round stationary fan that sits on the floor, some use an oscillating fan on a stand/pole. Can’t help on the inside fan issue. Every MH I had until this one had fans in the front. Not much air, a bit noisy.

RE: Best Location for MaxxAir Covers?

Why not cover every vent? Helps cut down on heat, keep them open more often, helps keep the vent covers from damage.

RE: Who has a good RV oven

We love ours. Best bread box we have ever had. In three years the oven has never been on.

RE: Propane Tank on my Minnie. Should I replace it?

Nothing wrong with the tank or valve. It would look better if you removed the rust and painted it, but that’s up to you. As mentioned, find a more knowledgeable propane dealer.

RE: Slide tilting question

FWIW ON MY Bay Star Sport mh, when I put the bed slide out I have to push the top of the slide to get it flush. The slide topper is taught as yours appears to be. I’d adjust the slide topper to see if it helps. For me, no big deal to push the slide.

RE: How long to return to camping after open heart surgery

If haven’t already, have your cardiologist sign you up for Cardiac Rehab, covered by most if not all insurance policies. The actual number of sessions will vary by company. . They put you through a series of exercises to strengthen your heart, about 1/3 the way through the sessions you will feel great and be chomping at the bit to get out there and do what you need/want. Had quad in ‘97. Since then two of the bypasses need stents, one of them has closed. Went back into rehab in ‘17 and have continued going on my own since.

RE: Gettysburg with kids

It has to be hard for young people to appreciate Gettysburg until they know and understand the importance of the battle and time. Perhaps the museum/visitor center will provide a good experience. Not sure the trip through the battle fields and all the state monuments will be of interest. Expect a lot of questions like Why?

RE: Slide out, store in, or out?

Not a TT but just the same... Store them in. Less chance of storm damage, water intrusion, and the chance for critters and birds making their homes in the slide mechanism (depending on how your slides work). This is more relevant in the spring nest building times. You should consider draining your water tank, water heater as part of your storing routine.

RE: awning advice

Does your awning unhook from the side of the trailer? Most manual awnings do, and the arms become vertical supports you can stake to the ground.

RE: How do you begin to plan for extended road trips?

We’ve found that 300 miles a day is too much. My days of seeing how long I can go are behind me. Others will go farther. We figure 50 mph is a good number counting stops for biological, food, fuel needs. Don’t like getting anywhere after dark, or feeling rushed to get somewhere. A two night stop every couple of days gives time to rest and see some along the way.

RE: Rooftop ac repair

I suspect new ones are in order. Seems that you and/or previous owners have gotten your monies worth out of those units.

RE: Batteries

It is if the batteries are 6 volt in which two batteries are connected in series to develop 12v.

RE: Amazon Prime and Alexa

I really don’t want indoor cameras controllable by an outside ( trusted ? ) entity, nor do I want some to have the ability to listen to every word I say.

RE: Cable TV surge protection

So maybe they don’t have scattered thunderstorms that pop up quickly in the desert south west. Personally I’m not sure anything really will protect the coax if the cable is struck by lightning unless you unplug from the post. PIA.

RE: 2018 TT has been deemed Total Loss by insurance company

So just how was the shower left on? Alcohol involved?

RE: Want to replace shower with shower/sauna/deep tub...

Seems like knowing where the OP is going to park it would be useful info. If an outside sauna would work might depend on where he is. Otherwise replacing an RV shower with a deep tub will be interesting.
