RE: cabinet door coming apart

Don't get any glue on the raised panel portion. Those are supposed to "float" in the rails and styles. If you glue that part in, eventually it will break because wood expands and contracts. Just glue the rail to the style at the bottom. Clamp it for a day and re-hang the door. So that's why those door panels rattle? I've been tempted to put some glue in the groove to stop the rattling.

RE: Texas State Parks

We just left Inks Lake State Park on Friday. Reservations at the water and electric sites are being honored, but it appears they aren't taking any new reservations for a month now. Only one bathroom open out of 8. All other buildings are closed. Cabins are closed. Water only sites are closed. Making any plans may be futile. JK

RE: Wheel Lugs

Got 2 new rear tires for the truck while in Quartzsite a few weeks ago. After a couple hundred miles I checked them with a torque wrench. Almost all of the nuts moved a bit. I was surprised, as it seems most shops tend to overtighten them. JK

RE: Death Valley questions

We stayed at the Longstreet Casino and rv Park which is just outside of Death Valley. They never fill up and they space people apart. Around $35/night, full hookups. We would stay there again. JK

RE: Quartzsite or bust

We left Plamosa Road BLM a week ago and everything was normal. Hated to leave. JK

RE: Army Corps Of Engineers Parks Are Closing?

I just got an email from Gulf Island National Seashore that my reservation is canceled for Davis Bayou campground. They are closing it for 10 days starting tomorrow the 19th. I would think Fort Pickens is too. It's probably too soon to say about May. JK

RE: Finished installing Kodiak 6K disc brakes

There is a Very slight delay due to the pump kicking in, noticeable when braking hard. It's like ba-bam, a fraction of a second. I had mine done by Performance Trailer Braking, and the installer said that's how it is. JK

RE: Anyone canceling trips due to Corona virus?

I can't believe how stupid people are getting over this. Why am I even reading this thread......

RE: Psssst...wanna see a Wall?

That thing is disgusting. We were there in Organ Pipe Cactus, at the Twin Peaks campground a week ago. What looks like a dirt road going up that hill is the footprint for that stupid wall. We could see that from our campsite. In a couple of weeks you'll be able to look at that wall from the comfort of your campsite. And the scenic loop goes right along it on the south end. The scenic road was there first... JK

RE: Fed Cuts Rates: Will RV Rates Follow?

You will never outsmart the market. Always stick with your plan. Through highs and lows. JK

RE: Any problems with Goodyear Endurance tires?

I bought my Endurance tires for my fifth wheel almost 2 years ago and after 25,000 miles I replaced the front 2 due to the outer tread wearing from excess scrubbing in tight turns. I'll flip the new ones to even out the wear. The rears now have 27,000 miles. JK

RE: Towing 20' camper with Jeep Liberty

There's a YouTube channel called Slim Potatohead and he tows an Aliner A-Frame trailer with a Jeep Liberty. Check him out, maybe ask him about it. He just got a new trailer but hasn't revealed it on his channel yet, but he's a minimalist so it's gonna be small. By the way, he makes very interesting videos. JK

RE: Campnab

My wife's cousin (girl) from Oregon was telling us that back in the early 70s Canada wanted the youth of the day to see their country, so they had some program where you could hitchhike from coast to coast and have a place to stay overnight for free, which she did. Those were the days. JK

RE: Second AC worth it?

We haven’t had out new one out in really hot weather yet. It has two and one of the things I like is you can just run the bedroom a/c while sitting and visiting in the living area and not much noise from it at all. Both of our it tied into the duct work. This ^^^ And a 2nd one as a backup. After the first year we added a 2nd one and I think I paid around $1200 including the extra wall thermostat, so $1100 isn't out of line at all. JK

RE: Oxygenics Fury RV Handheld Shower

An Oxygenics shower head uses about 1 1/2 gallon per minute. I use a shower head with a slow gentle stream. I use about a gallon for an entire shower. If you need to conserve water, an Oxygenics is a poor choice. If you are using hook ups then it doesn't matter. You probably crank it way up to get to 1.5 gallons per minute. I ran a test last year with the typical water flow we use with our Oxygenics, and and I measured .6 gallons per minute. With a measured 5 minute shower that's 3 gallons total. I did not measure how much water was wasted from waiting for the water temperature to get right. JK

RE: Is Socializing a Dying Thing in the RV Community?

I blame some of it on these types of TV shows like the old one called "Cops" and other shows like that. She watches them all day long. If you watch shows about people getting murdered by strangers and you see a new episode several times a day you will start to believe that everyone is a murderer. (I wonder how many people get killed by strangers on TV everyday as compared to how many people actually get killed by strangers everyday ?) I think that is exactly why "non-boondockers" and non campers think boondocking is dangerous. They think there are bands of criminals roaming the countryside and deserts looking for victims, just like in the old TV shows like Bonanza and Gunsmoke. JK

RE: 5th Wheel Bunkhouse Under 32'

I was visiting the Grand Design forum yesterday and I noticed a 33.5' bunkhouse for sale in their classifieds section. Seemed like a decent deal. I don't know if you could find a shorter bunkhouse fifth wheel than that. He seems pretty motivated since he lowered the price a couple days after his first post. JK

RE: Alliance 5th Wheels

Saw this new brand at the Tampa RV Super show........Damm what an improvement over the major name brands.... Can you tell us what the prices were like? I was one of the early buyers of Open Range when they started. It seems it is better to buy from the upstarts when quality matters. Once a conglomerate buys them out you will get the same corner cutting cost saving B.S. Apparently you didn't watch the YouTube video posted on page 2 of this thread. Shows list price and dealer price on a couple of them. JK

RE: Light Fifth Wheel Series M-297RLS

Not positive, but I think it has all cable slides. BAL made some bad gearboxes for them in 2015,so a 2013 shouldn't have issues. JK
