RE: Show type of RV on question page

On the topics listing page the far right hand column clearly states the particular forum for each topic. And if you click on a topic it shows the particular forum for that thread near the top of the page. You apparently missed both of those.

RE: Gas stove in fifth wheel

Good grief. This is a new member's first post. And a question they need an answer to. No wonder participation in this forum is falling off. To the original poster (OP). No reason to shut off gas individually to the stove. Just do as DrewE said above.

RE: Bad Ground wire taillights Dim

Looks like water stands in that area. When redoing that I would move it higher and on a vertical surface. You can use a self drilling screw to make it easier.

RE: Carlsbad Caverns NM

We also stayed at the KOA as it seemed the best in the area, though not the most convenient. But a word of caution. The oil field boom is apparently making it difficult to find any opening at any RV park in that area. I would begin checking availability far in advance of planning to arrive there. We did the tour on our own starting at the natural entrance. Plan on the elevator back to the top unless you are in good physical condition as the trip down from the natural entrance is long and steep. There are guided tours that take you to areas not available on your own, but we did not try any of those.

RE: Bad Ground wire taillights Dim

Are you measuring the 10.5 volts across the back of the bulb socket? I would use the meter ground wire direct to the frame to get a good ground and make sure you have a full 12 volts to the bulb. But the connection definitely needs to be cleaned up no matter what it is for.

RE: MH accident in gas station!

From other videos I have seen, videoing such events seems common procedure, probably so the damage is documented so the owner can’t claim the tow driver did some of the damage and start calling their lawyer. Too many sue happy people already. As far as publicly posting, no difference than a news crew putting it on the 6 o’clock news. Whether he was an unskilled driver or an experienced driver in a moment of inattention is pure speculation. No one here knows.

RE: Urgent Need of Advice re Winterizing!

I would not worry about the tanks freezing. BUT. I would be concerned about the few feet of drain pipe coming out of the tanks that will also be full of water. Cheap Walmart heat lamp under that area?

RE: 50 amp coach on 30 amp power

Simple answer is it will trip the park breaker but will not harm anything. Just reset the breaker and remember what you were using at the time and don’t use that combination any more.

RE: Boston Ma. to San Antonio Tx.

Can only help a little after you get to Texas. Route A, I-40 to I-30 to Dallas. On east edge of Dallas take I-635 south to I-20, west to I-35E, then south. Bypasses Dallas downtown area. There is about 3-4 miles of construction south of Dallas entering Waxahachie with narrow lanes. Typically not a real problem other than having to watch your lane a little closer. Then another 3-4 miles of construction in Waco. Other than those annoyances a large part of i-35 has been completely rebuilt over the last 8-10 years and is great road now. If entering San Antonio from the north on I-35 to I-37 or from the east on I-10 to I-37, do not take the E Southcross Blvd exit from I-37 to get to Travelers World. There is a rail crossing with a sharp rise/fall that can be a drag problem for a larger RV. Go a little farther south to SE Military Dr. Or from I-35 or I-10, take I-410 around the southeast side to I-37, then back north to Military.

RE: Petit Jean State Park, Arkansas

Agree it is a great park. Been about 3 yrs since we were there but wanting to go back.

RE: Stopping at flying j, Cracker Barrel etc

Crackerbarrel RV slots are small and often hard to even get to. But arriving at 10 pm and leaving at 6 am you can probably just park in back across several spaces with no problem since they typically close at 10-11 pm and don’t open until 6 am.

RE: Fifth Wheel Hitch Heigth

6” between the truck bed rails and the underside of the 5er overhang is what is important. That’s where possibly hitting may occur. Hitch height has to be adjusted to get that clearance but is not a standard height.

RE: Traveling to Austin from Las Vegas

I would just follow google maps suggestion and take the southernmost route suggested, being the one dropping down to I-10. That time of year any route could have some winter weather. But odds go down the farther south you go. Looking closer at the google maps route, it looks good until you turn off I-10 on US 290 toward Fredericksburg and Austin. For some crazy reason known only to google maps algorithms, it says to turn on RR 2093 in the small town of Harper and return to US 290 east of Fredericksburg. There is absolutely no reason to take the small 2 lane no shoulder ranch road thru that area. Stay on US 290. It is 4 lane.

RE: Emergency roadside assistance

Qualified and professional are vague terms that can mean what ever they want it to mean. Which means they mean nothing useful.

RE: I Think I'm Outta Here

Participation had been slowly declining for years. I still visit regularly and always start by clicking newest (threads started within the last 24 hours). Used to bring up 8-10 pages of new threads year round. Now 2 pages max. And doesn’t matter if winter or prime summer travel season. Many individual brands now have Facebook pages and many people seem to prefer that. I don’t know why though.

RE: Tires Date

Being retired now I only put about 10,000 miles per year on my truck. I would not buy new tires over one year old, and preferably much less.

RE: Must cross Yosemite NP to Convict Lake?

Yep, drive thru a NP and pay the fee. Got me as I was driving from I-15 to Page AZ thru Zion years ago. $20 please, he says (I think at the time). I am not stopping, just going to Page, I say. $20 please, or you can turn around and go another way. Shelled out $20.

RE: Egr dpf delete dodge 6.7

Don’t know what other state laws are, but in Texas it is illegal to sell a vehicle on which the emissions systems have been modified. Keep the parts. You may have to reinstall to legally sell it. Texas law prohibits any person from selling, offering for sale, leasing, or offering to lease any vehicle not equipped with all emission control systems or devices in good operable condition. Violators are subject to penalties under the Texas Clean Air Act of up to $25,000 per violation. Buyers are advised to have the vehicle checked for all required emission control devices prior to purchasing a new or used vehicle.

RE: Frame and tie down damage from unmarked speedbump.

Looking at your picture I see exactly what you describe, an asphalt speed bump a few inches higher than the surrounding pavement. Have seen them before. And unmarked they do blend into that pavement. And yes, they are typically clearly marked. I am curious what the diamond shape warning sign about 3 car lengths before the speed bump says though. Not likely you will get anything at all from the city.
