RE: How cold can you go?

I would be concerned about freezing lines in those temperatures if the 20's stuck around for any length of time but I would be more concerned with finding a campground that's still open in NY in mid November. On the bright side, the long range forecast is calling for temperatures in the high 40's-low 50's through mid November in NY. If you find a campground, why not just winterize the camper, bring bottled water for drinking and cooking, and use the campground facilities for everything else. then you can just concentrate on having a great time and don't have to worry about anything happening to the camper.

RE: Campground Maximum Length

Another good resource is to look at Campsite Photos website and see if where you want to go is listed,there you can look at all the campsites and make a informed choice of campsite. I have found that it was very helpful going to a campground that I have never been to. I have found looking at photos when available very useful as well. We arrived at a campsite one time where there was a large branch just low enough that out 5th wheel couldn't get in but a travel trailer would have just made it under the branch.

RE: What do you want in a campground?

I'd like the next site to be so close my awning rubs the occupants trailer when the wind blows, lots of lights left on all night including jumpers in 7 ways to turn on running lights, lots of concrete, and maybe a few dogs left alone all day in rigs that bark continuously at every noise they hear, or everything they see. That would be perfect. Perhaps a golf cart screaming by every 15 seconds too, but don't want to get greedy. Could I also get 4 or 5 bucket lights strung up in the only tree on the property? HAHAHAHA I have experienced all of those things on more than one occasion. I'd like to add that I'm quite fond of campground roads that are no wider than your rv and lined with trucks and cars so you can't possibly back into your site. Another nice touch is the neighbor that invites 50 people for a party, a dozen vehicles show up and park all over the place and kegs of beer roll out of the bed of a couple of the pickups that arrive. Oh how much we love that. We always hope we get to camp next to where these things are occurring. AWESOME experiences!

RE: Slide Out Making Banging Sound

RobWNY, what repair facility are you talking about? I'm not going to name names. They are a reputable RV dealer with a service department that has very good google reviews located in Northwest PA

RE: Slide Out Making Banging Sound

Here's what the repair facility said about my slide problem. They aren't sure what the problem is. The gear teeth are fine, nothing else looks out of the ordinary either. They think it might be a burred or oblong bearing/sleeve in the Actuator. Price of a new Actuator is $327.25 and it will take three hours labor to install it at $120/Hr. They offer no guarantee that it will solve the problem. I declined because I didn't want to spend $730 with tax and maybe still have the problem. I'll wait until something breaks (if it ever does) and make a decision on what to do then.

It's not a VPN then if it offers no privacy. That's what VPN means Virtual PRIVATE Network

RE: No Indian Summer in the NW

High of 62 here is Western NY today but then back into the 70's and low 80's for the next week or so. I'll take it!

RE: Question about Suburban SW6DE water heater...

Actually...RobWNY...in the video he was holding the element removed from the heater without any wires on the screws when he tested it. Do I need to remove the wires and remove the element before testing it with the multi-meter? I'm not sure if the element needs to be removed to test Ohms. I've only checked mine after taking it out. It's probably a good idea to do that anyway. While the tank is empty, you can also look at the Anode rod to see if it needs to be replaced also.

RE: Question about Suburban SW6DE water heater...

Check inside the trailer where the other switches are (Water Pump, Tank Levels etc.) and see if there's a switch for the Water Heater. There has to be one somewhere. It will be red and light up most likely when in the ON position. You use that when you are going to use Propane to heat the water. Turn on the propane at the tanks, turn on the red switch and if someone is outside by the access panel, they should hear the spark igniter clicking and then the propane lighting. If it doesn't, there could be spiders or some other blockage preventing the propane flow. The switch on the Water Heater itself is behind the access panel on the outside of the trailer. It's in the lower left corner area. That's for the Electric Heating element. There will be no noise or clicking with that. If that switch has been turned on even for a couple of minutes without any water in the tank, it will need to be replaced as it will be burned out. You can test that by taking an Ohms reading with a multimeter. If it needs to be replaced, this one is the correct one for the Suburban Water Heaters. Heating Element

RE: States Visited Map Rules

Your map, your rules. OK! My rule would be a state I was in long enough to drink a beer! ;) Just to clarify, that would be about 5 minutes? :D

RE: Lippert Linc Analog Remote - 5 Function

Disregard. I was able to locate what it is for on my RV. It's the room slide. Not sure why the "Room Slide" button doesn't operate the room slide and instead it's the "OPP" button but whatever. Mod, this thread can be deleted if you like. Thanks.

RE: States Visited Map Rules

Fill them all in, consider it places you plan to visit/camp. ;) I can't do that. It's a "States Visited Map" not a "States I want To Visit Map" HAHAHA

States Visited Map Rules

For those that use one of these in your profile, what rules do you go by? 1. Only list States you've camped in 2. Only List States you've been in while in or towing your RV 3. I've been in the State and mark it as visited regardless of how I got there and when.

RE: Viair Portable Compressor uses

I ended up buying this one from Walmart for $59.88 Portable Compressor. Lightweight, not too loud and I can take it with me and use it for other things if necessary. The Viair will be dedicated for it's main purpose. I used it on my camper and it worked great. All done blowing out the lines and ready to roll!

RE: Viair Portable Compressor uses

Thanks everyone. Since I would have to buy parts to make the Viair usable in this application, I might as well just go buy a 3 gallon/100psi compressor instead. Walmart has one for $60

RE: wood weight

Hard to give you a precise weight. The species of wood and how much moisture content it has will make the weight vary but you'll be fine if hauling one face cord of wood a few miles. If I were to guess what a typical face cord (18" X 4' x 8') of aged split hardwood weighs, I'd say around 600 pounds give or take.
