Oasisbob 12/09/19 08:50pm Tow Vehicles

After learning a certain oil change facility does not always change the oil filter when doing an oil change I went back to doing it myself. Things have changed on the motor oil shelf. So many choices. Synthetic, petrolium, blended. My question is if I go synthetic and need to add oil later can I mix petrolium with synthetic? What is blended? Is "high mileage" oil any different? Howq? Thanks for any info you may share

RE: 15 Amp Service

It will be trial and error as you know not what else is on that house circuit you tap into. Run propane where possible and you might be okay

RE: Anybody else have trouble packing for camping

The more you camp the easier it gets. We leave most items in the camper. Each family member has a box for their clothing that they pack. Started when they were really young. I pack food and fire wood and go. All the kids help set up and clean up after camping. This is how we have always done it. Takes less than an hour. Sure we have forgotten things. Most importantly take a sense of humor and adventure

RE: RV Covers Experiences

If you cannot park under cover a fabric cover is good insurance. I believe most RV's leak by design. Today I helped a friend cover his rig. Be careful putting it on and do not snag the fabric on any edges.

RE: full length bunk end cover

Bunk end covers were never made to keep out noise. Best advice is to run a fan nearby. Or for us it is an electric dehumidifier when not dry camping.

RE: Anyone gone on a Cruise?

If you like eating well prepared exotic foods in large quanities and being waited on while living in luxury in a warm friendly sunny climate and visiting new places cruising is for you. We have gone several times. Our favorite cruise line is Holland America which caters to older people. Going in the off season means fewer kids on board. The size of these ships will blow your mind. I suggest price shopping. Last minute deals are often really good. Yes go

RE: $600K Of Marijuana Seized in MH Near Joliet, IL

I say throw the book at him. That dope creates far more problems than it solves. Glad he got caught

RE: External Holding Tank

I made a dump station by sinking a 50 galolon drum in a hole surrounded with large rocks. I drilled several 3 inch holes in the trum and ran a pipt to just below the ground. Works fine

RE: roof coating

I am probley in the minority but I do not like or use total roof coatings. I reseal seams but why do the whole roof? I have seen roof coatings go bad making it tough to find the point of enrry.

full length bunk end cover

We are almost year round campers. The bunk ends are a big head ache needing to be set up at home under cover to completely dry.Being bored recently I cut up an old rubber pool cover and made a full length bunk end cover. I have to say I impressed myself with this one. It covers all sides and roof held on with tiny clamps and a few bungee cords. Last trip out I carefully removed and bunk was totally dry. Mission accomplished. What am I missing here? Why does Pop Up Gizmo's not make such an item? I believe there is a market

Since the disposable one pount propane bottles are gettin pricey I am now refilling my own. Only deal is the seals are not up to more than a few fillings before they begin to leak. I cannot find threaded caps the these bottles which would make them safe. Anyohe know of such a threaded cap?

RE: Propane Tank Gauge,recomendations please

Open one tank at a time. When tank 1 is empty run off tank 2 while filling tank 1. Key being not to forget filling the empty when you get home.

RE: Dirt

We camp most of the year and like the added warmth of the carpet. We also take lots of kids camping so our carpet is sectioned and sometimes gets pulled out and pressure washed. Then hung to dry.

RE: 20 year old hoses

If you have a long road trip planned I would change them out. Do they feel stiff? They may be hard to find. Better to buy them while at home rather than on the road.

RE: Just curious?

One observation I can make here is high end or low end you get the same cheap plastic exterior oven fan exhaust ducts, roof vent pipe covers, outdoor shower access doors etc,. Airstream is the exception to these. I have replaced my shore power access port door three times. Overall the RV industry should be ashamed of the lack of pride in the product. People spend their hard earned money and get junk. Just my opinion based on experience, talking with people and customer complaints I read about right here
