RE: Mercedes C-Class

We lease all our MB cars, I would never buy one, much too expensive for parts out of warranty. It's bad enough how they try to rip us off while under warranty never mind without one. My MB car dealership will not service Sprinters bc they said they do not have the needed software. So, yes, while on the road, you will be limited. My friend had a Ford class C and went to a MB class C and dropped it soon after, didn't like the way it drove. He now has an 'A' . yep if you buy a MB you better have deep pockets. I'd get one of the other vehicles available. bumpy

RE: Bending plywood for roof

For that thickness of plywood, I would kerf the back side with a circular saw about 1 ply deep. It will take several kerfs about 2"-4" apart. Fasten the flat end down and SLOWLY apply pressure to bend it. I did something similar on plywood when I made a boat in shop class and also when I made a bend in a fence rail. I don't think only cutting one ply will make it bendable however. I also cut them closer than 2 inches. bumpy

Bumpyroad 07/10/20 01:06pm General RVing Issues

Not really subjective. Wouldn’t have a DRW unless absolutely needed. Too difficult to park, drive off-road etc. Typical comment from someone who doesn't drive DRW daily. Tell me why a comparable DRW is harder to park than a SRW? Payload , stability and better braking are why you chose DRW over SRW seems to me that DRW trucks sort of stick out wider than SRW ones?????? bumpy

RE: Remember the bike box?

looks good, reminds me of a fiberglass bicycle carrier I saw that carried the bikes on end IIRC. would swing down, had wheels and could be dropped off and moved to chain to a tree etc. I thought it would be great for a small rV to carry assorted things instead of bicycles. bumpy

RE: Sagging headliner

RE: Most dont sanitize water heater?

It takes lots of vinegar and time to kill whatever it is that lurks in the water heaters. Bleach doesn't do it. There's plenty of articles about it out there in google land. How about a couple of links to those articles? bleach works great. bumpy

RE: Most dont sanitize water heater?

are you sure you aren't remembering that people say they don't run antifreeze into the water heater? just bypass it and let drain. bumpy

RE: My pet peeve on Class B Plus

and all of this B, B+, C- etc makes any difference??????????? bumpyIt does to groups associated to the different classes of RVs. There is no point in having such a group unless there is a clear definition of what RVs are a part of the group. This forum is one example and it is properly named "Camping Van Conversions" that caters to Class B owners, although activity on this forum has almost come to a halt. Another example is the Annual Class B Rally that has to limit attendance to what most RV parks can handle. Small Class C's have to be declined as there are always more true class Bs than can be handled. B-Rally website B-Rally FB Group so " Like the Roadtrek 200 being a C and the Roadtrek 210 being a B, this is confusing and just plain silly." one could be in your "club" and the other couldn't? bumpy

RE: Okay How many RV'ers here use CB-Radio's?

a good way to tell if somebody has/is using a CB in their vehicle. if they complain about cursing and blabber, they haven't used one lately. I can't even remember the last time I heard such on my CB going down I 95. bumpy

RE: The more I learn, the more I realize what I don't know

You do not need a "monster" truck to tow a 5er. Truck tow ratings have increased dramatically in recent years. Many 5ers fall within the ratings of 250/2500 pickups. And ratings for 350/3500 SRW trucks will handle many many more 5ers. A dully is not required by weight until you get into the heaviest 5ers. Wanting a dually vs needing a dully, as many do, is another matter. this is exactly why I recommend figuring out what 5er you want/need then buy the truck to fit. if you don't need a real truck and a Scrawny one will suffice, go for it. if you want a more capable vehicle, then buy it. bumpy

RE: The more I learn, the more I realize what I don't know

Make your life easier. You need a new truck and, unless you have lots of extra money, a FW is the answer. I think the advice is to buy the truck then buy the FW that works with the truck. Now, isn't that simpler? I think it would be better to find the 5er you want, then buy the truck to fit. bumpy

RE: The more I learn, the more I realize what I don't know

to tow any large/decent 5er you need a monster of a truck to pull it, dualies, etc. I would hate to have to drive that truck in some city traffic, parking,etc. and would much prefer a class a towing a small toad. bumpy

RE: Adding privacy curtain

how tight to the walls do you need the curtain to be? if you must snug it up to the wall, 96 is too short.I'd add 6-12 inches at least. bumpy

RE: Okay How many RV'ers here use CB-Radio's?

well put as I have said before here, when approaching a city and want to ask a trucker which is best route to get thru, north side, south side or straight thru, exactly who do I call using my "advanced technology" magic phone? bumpy
