RE: Central Michigan campground this weekend FHU

You might try this We are heading there today but I believe they are now sold out. This weekend is Grand Valley State University's family weekend which is right down the road from the campground.

RE: “I was shocked with just how white it was there,” she said.

Middle aged white guy here thinking out loud. If I checked into a campground that was 95% black would I feel uncomfortable and out of my comfort zone.........

RE: tongue jack slipped

I had this happen ONCE as well. As soon as I unhooked from the ball the camper moved hard right. The campsite pad was located just after a curve in the "driveway". I suspect that my axles had some twist in them from backing and turning. I should have pulled straight and then backed straight up to relieve the axle twist but I didn't. Lesson learned.

RE: Material on outside of slide out warping

Been there. We had a 2012 Thor Komfort 5th wheel and our bedroom slide had the same plastic external material on the sides of the slide. Our warped terribly but after doing tons of research it appears that it does not hurt anything. Ours was so badly warped that the slide wipers would not make full contact when bringing the slide in or out. We never had any signs of water intrusion. The only “fix” was to remove the slide and replace the warped plastic but there was no guarantee it wouldn’t happen again. We sold the trailer and I’ll be honest..... the sight of that warped material just drove me nuts and that was a big reason I sold it.

RE: Upper Peninsula

Beautiful campground and area but not exactly the UP. We will be there next week for a few days. I will recommend Indigo Bluffs RV Park and Resort in the Traverse City/Sleeping Bear Dunes area. They have everything from tent sites to luxury RV sites. Would definitely stay there again.

RE: Water damage repair

Honestly...... Run away fast. The damage you see is only a small part of what is actually there.

RE: Bunk house conundrum and older kids

We ended up pulling the trigger on a lightly used 2018 Kodiak 288BHSL. It is a traditional single slide rear bunk model. It has a pair of bunks in the right rear that is big enough for an adult but nothing that I would call sleeping in luxury. The bunk area is small enough that I felt like we didn't lose all that much living space for when its just the wife and I. In the end the condition and amenities of this travel trailer were the deciding factor (auto leveling and 50amp)which are not all that common to find on a used TT....

RE: Sailun tires for the TV

Thanks for the reply’s. Looks like I found my next tire.

Sailun tires for the TV

So by now we are really familiar with how well the Sailun brand tires do on our trailers. I towed with them for years with great results. Has anyone used them on their tow vehicle? They have a LT275/70r18 tire called a Terramax HLT that looks like a bargain if they are as good as the trailer tires.

RE: new TT what do you change first if anything?

If I have the spare money the first thing I do is swap out the tires to a better quality set. You can still sell the take off tires as long as they are new to recoup some of the money spent.

RE: Tote question

Dick_B ~~ That is one I hoped the O/P would answer Im the OP :) I hadn't really thought about the weight of all that poo yet. Im still in the learning and figuring out stage.

RE: Tote question

If you always dump when your black tank is at 3/4's full, you should be fine. Otherwise, spring for a full hook up site with sewer. I personally hate those totes so that's what we do. unless we book way ahead of time FHU sites are often hard to come by around here

Tote question

"Blue" tote question from someone who has never used one. Lets say your rv black tank holds 50 gallons and your blue tote holds 42 gallons. Is there anyway to know ahead of time before the tote is full of poo so that you can close your RV's valve before the tote is over full?

RE: Tips how to sell TT

Also at our campground I saw TT unit that look like it had slides straight across from each other. I think I’d like a large open area. Anyone know who makes a unit like that. ThankS Pretty much every manufacturer offers a floor plan with opposing slides...

RE: I-69 in Michigan

Actually Davison is where I was coming from. The only damage was a lanp shade that didnt survive the trip.. Unfortunately I have to come up to Flushing/Davison in July. There is no good side road to take as an alternate either or I would do that. I guess I will make sure things are battened down and tires are inflated properly and go slow. I know 85-90 is a common speed for people there, glad I moved out.

I-69 in Michigan

Is there a hiway in worse condition anywhere? I have never been so beat up by a rough hiway in my life. Towing my TT from Flint through Lansing to Marshall Mi it felt like my spine was going to come through my head. How in the world did we let our hiway system get in such disrepair.....
