RE: Dryer Vent / Exhaust

Why? I bought mine from PPL Motor Home while on the road, best price I found. Drill a 4" hole the rest s easy, if your is marked even easier mine was not. This install was done while on the road. https://i.imgur.com/93iHlfVl.jpg "border=0" https://i.imgur.com/m3zZPvb.pngClick For Full-Size Image. https://i.imgur.com/FZxFZxLl.jpg "border=0" https://i.imgur.com/m3zZPvb.pngClick For Full-Size Image. https://i.imgur.com/gqn7i65l.jpg "border=0" https://i.imgur.com/m3zZPvb.pngClick For Full-Size Image.

RE: Replacement Toilet Recommendations

Replaced my Theftford Aquamagic 3 years ago with a Dometic 310 and never looked back. This has a slow close lid and it actually flushes all the way around. The weak spots the flush valve seal but it's replaceable w/o removing the toilet. Turn off water open valve, and pull seal out, reverse to install the new one. (gloves preferred)

RE: Best RV Extended Warranty

Wharever the premium is, put it in the bank. Insure yourselves. Great advice......IF you know exactly where, when, and how much a repair (or repairs) is going to set you back. Self insuring is great if you're Amazon, but for the common man of average means it's a foolish idea. If it worked so well, everyone would self insure for car insurance, homeowners insurance, medical insurance, and long term disability insurance. Yes, I am well aware that some are required by law, but only bare minimum coverages . . . how many people actually carry those minimum coverages and 'self insure' the excess? VERY few. It's a concept that just doesn't work very well. Your talking high dollar items not a 1200 A/C unit. I bought a brand new Splendide washer/dryer just under $1000 and did my install. Now I need to spend how much to insure that $1000? Not worth it. I own my home, two trucks and rentals, do I self in sue them, hell no, I pay State Farm. How many calls have you had, your warranty on your vehicle is about to expire ................

RE: Best RV Extended Warranty

Save your money on extended warranty there is too much "fine print" sorry that's not covered or you failed to .... Put the money in a just in case account in the bank. If nothing happens you have vacation money if you do need it the moneys there. Most things in the RV are under $1500 so if your handy buy what you need, A/C, water heater, heater, stove, etc, if not hire a mobile RV mechanic.

RE: Good Low cost Camping Map Books for The West?

Trucker Atlas available at most truck stop. Truck routes are clearly marked so any RV will be able to follow those. Learn how to read it and you will be able to decipher what it has to tell you, highway class, distances etc. There you will also find Exit Guild if your interested in whats off each exit nation wide.

RE: East through Kansas

As a general rule, I try to avoid driving east in Kansas. Watch your snot. But I have made many trips, normally longer and heavier than you are. Wichita is pain to get thru on 54/400. I would take K61 at Pratt, catch US 50 at Hutchison. That is a major truck route, I435/I470 along the south side of the KC metro area. Drop off I470 on US50. Good route, plenty of food and fuel. Sedilia Mo, take US 65 north. If want to avoid interstates, turn east on US 24. 24 will drop you on US 36, that will put you into Ill far enough south to find a path that does not include Chicago Obvious what you do, lots different 75ft @ 80,000. US30 is far enough south to avoid Chicago, again 2 & 4 lane with lots of small towns, fuel & food are plentiful.

RE: Alaska 2022??

Was curious if anyone is considering going to Alaska this year? Usually by now there are some posts. Was wondering with Covid testing requirements to get through Canada and rising fuel costs if anyone is planning on going. Yep June on Princess Cruise Lines Cruising is fine for some but those boats stop at every T shirt, trinket & jewelry store on the SE coast. The North & Alaska by RV is a whole different trip to whole different places. I'm sure it is but fuel prices and almost everyone I have talked to said you will have damage. I have been to 49 of the 50 so before it's too late I am ding #50. Wife's never been on a ship so it checks a box for her, my prior cruise stopped in Vietnam and was not that enjoyable. I'm also not into trinkets, on R&R from Vietnam I was able to see Hong Kong Gardens, ride he tram and I visit an open market in Japan (multi tours to RVN) Home to Anchorage is 3700+ one way and with fuel at $5.00+ we'll make the first trip by ship. We are not drinkers so we will see as much as we can.

RE: Removing one side tires

I need to take the tires off of my TT (preferably 2 at a time) to take them to the tire store for replacement. The store won’t remove them (an quite frankly, I’m ok with that). So, how can I lift one side at a time safely, to remove the tires? 2021 Coachmen Freedom Express with a wide gap between the tires. Frankly I wouldn't deal with a tire shop that won't R&R the tires, that's part of their job in MHO.

RE: Fifth Wheel or TT?

Sounds like a 5W toy hauler with any capable truck or option 2 a TT with a long bed P/U load the ATV win the bed and hook the TT. Either direction I would look at a diesel P/U for the torque to pull the weight which ever way you go.

RE: Towing performance - F150 vs F250

I am shopping for a new truck. I pull a fifth wheel, around 10,000 pounds including contents. I have a 2009 F150, and I find it marginal on long hills. I would not feel comfortable hauling through the Rockies, which is on our bucket list. The new F150's have a higher towing capacity than my old one. But are they strong enough, or do I need to be looking at the F250? Any comments would be helpful? https://camperreport.com/ford-f150-vs-f250-towing-trailer/ https://www.doityourselfrv.com/5th-wheel-towing/

RE: Santa Fe-Taos and Flagstaff suggestions please

Flagstaff: while there is a lot of carping on the forum about KOA, I have found the Flagstaff KOA a satisfactory place to spend a few days. Yep it was a great camp site as long as you don't mind falling apart utilities, unlevel sites, and almost enough room to open a slide. I travel a lot and this is by far the worst I have been in. I just checked reviews, 86 camps in 20 states if that means anything. Try this for something around Santa Fe Santa Fe KOA Flag almost enough room to open slide as long as the tables not in use. Note table tilt don't try and use it. https://i.imgur.com/oP23pmtl.jpg Power box Flag KOA https://i.imgur.com/JpO9w8el.jpg Sewer Cap Flag KOA https://i.imgur.com/zRfYT2Hl.jpg Lots of block for unlevel Flag KOA check the table! https://i.imgur.com/WlAYFnbl.jpg
