RE: Smoke Detectors

I could be totally wrong on this, but for some reason I remember reading that there are special detectors for RV's. Not saying house ones would not work but for some reason I remember that there was a difference. Might want to check that out.

RE: NORCOLD Refrigerator Removal

Have you thought about just replacing the cooling unit? I replaced my norcold cooling unit two years ago with a totally 110v system works great. You may want to look into JC Refrigeration products. Its really an easy DIY process. Its not getting the old one out but the new one in. A lot of folks have done it so hopefully one of those will help. Good Luck

RE: Campgrounds along the Great Lakes in WI and MN

Lets start with WI. Door county, is full of shops and cherrys. When at Door County we stay at Hy-Lands Court As we like the FHU that private parts give. Great smoked fish at little store at Gills Rock. Another do not miss is the famious "fish boil" not only good eats but fun to watch. Our go to spot in MI is Two Harbors Burlington Bay City Park It may be to late to get reservation there but worth the try. Lots of water falls to see along the coast

RE: MH used newer or older

Like anything else on forums you will get alot of opinons, and most will be correct as they are coming from the owners of the units. So heres my 2cents. I left the 5th wheel type of RVing for the MH way. I started with a gas unit and found not enough storage either inside or out for longer trips. We traded a 2017 for a 2007 DP and love it. Way more storage for the longer 2months + trips. I am not a fan of all the electronics in the new coaches. I am happy with just the basics as less to go wrong. The older DP you do not have to play with the DEF stuff. Our 07 shows the quality and proud craftmanship of the days gone by. With your budget you should have no problem finding a great DP Just my thoughts Good Luck

RE: Utah national parks

I visited the parks two years ago when the pandemic was winding down. As for camping if you are planning on staying at private parks (I did) then make reservations early. If you are going to stay at the campgrounds in the parks its probably to late. As for getting into the parks I know when I was there it was just starting to get very busy. By that only so many cars were allowed at one time very very limited parking. Plan on getting into the parks early morning.

RE: Denver to Grand Rapids in February

I would stay on I70 until Indianapolis and then if you want to stay on 4 lanes take I69. Have driven both St. Louis and Indianapolis without any trouble as for big city driving. Open RV parks in Nebraska may be hard to find. I believe Missouri has open parks along I70. I think its going to be one of those jobs of calling the parks to see if they are open. Good Luck

RE: Memphis Bound looking for RV park

When in the Memphis area we like staying across the river at Tom Sawyer RV park Its an easy drive to Memphis. We did Memphis during the day and had no problem. I believe we spent 3 days there, lots to see and do.

RE: 1st night camping in our yard, 2023.01.24

Forget the rug, at least the large ones. I think you will find a small maybe 3x4 will take care of the grass problem. You might find that over the door hooks work the best, as the doors themselves are not the best built. Water meter never heard of but then that may mean nothing. I would however trade the water meter in for a water pressure gauge. Sounds like you have a handle on it. Sometimes to much planning takes the fun out of Rving.

RE: Covers. Pros and cons?

I have never had a cover so probably not one to answer your question. My reasoning for no cover is, how many rv's at dealer lots and across the country that spend years without a cover. I believe good maintenance is far better than a cover. Just my thoughts good luck

RE: Roadside Assistance

I have GS and have for more years than I can remember. I have used them a few times for tire changes and one stupid one of running out of diesel. I truely believe there are pros and cons to both of the ones you mentioned along with the others. There are only so many tow trucks in a given area so you know they all respond to each service. I can not say what FMCA policy is as far as towing goes. I feel GS towing policy is one of the best. Good Luck

RE: North or Northwest of Milwaukee and points north

Can not help on Milwaukee but if you do decide to visit Madison the Lake Farm County park is pretty good. If you go to Door County I prefer staying at Hyland Court There are alot of nice parks in Door County both private and state. Its easy to spend a week in Door County

RE: Flying J / Pilot to install megachargers for med/heavy trks

I have been on this forum for many many years and have seen less sensitive post be deleted. It seems not only does the "administrator" allow it but encourages this thread to continue. It seems a new standard has been set, so long to a friendly forum setting. Its just to bad!

RE: How does 50 amp work?

I am far from a electrician so I may not get the total picture correct. 50 amp has 2 hot wires, and either 1 or 2 ground. Each 50amp wire carries 110v (actually 120) so adding the two together gives you 220. If you look at your breaker box you will see that the 50amp breaker has two switches, that are tied together is some mannor. Most RVs at the breaker box take and split the 50amp to verious other breakers. Your house does the same thing. It brings in either 100 or 200 amp and at breaker box breaks it down to the various other breakers in the house. I hope a good electrician joins and can explain better.

RE: snap pads

Just giving you something to think about. I went the other route as I wanted to increase the size of my jacks foot print. The snap pads did not do that, at least for me. I went with bigfoot outrigger pads Yes you have to place them and retrieve them so there is alittle work involved, but for me its worth it. The size of the foot print was the important thing, as we were parked on grass one time during a rain storm. The jacks were on lego blocks at the time. The legos and jacks went into the soil about 2 in. Thats when I decided to increase foot print.

RE: Acess to back of outside tv

Somewhere most likely reaching from the bottom are two swivel hooks, one on each side. They could move up down or side side its just a matter of finding them. They are there!

RE: UP with hookups

We travel Northern Minnesota, UP, and Door County most every summer. Have to get out of the great humidity in SW MO. We like our FHU sites, so most state, county, city parks are out. In looking at different places to its important to us to have reservations. I really like to know I have a place to put my head. Where you are wanting to go is very popular and sites get full very quickly. In Door County WI we like Hy-Land Court They are in a good location to enjoy most of Door County In the UP there are many things to see and do after doing the mackinac island stuff we found a great little park in Curtis called Log Cabin Resort Curtis being almost in the middle of the UP made seeing things very easy. I hope this helps somewhat

RE: How to Best Run New Coax on Roof ??

On topic I ran coax from the back of MH to front for same reason. I found that using dicor by its self did not work. For me the coax would not stay flat long enough for the dicor to harden. I ended up getting coax cable clips to hold it down while the dicor dried. I can not remember if the nails that came with the clips were long enough or not. I was not a fan of putting more holes in the roof, however by using way to much dicor I felt safe. Good Luck

RE: Has Anyone Pulled New Coax in Roof?

Do not know if this link will help, but it shows a connection between the main coax and the antenna coax. Good Luck
