RE: Where do you find water

If we need water during our travels, most often we pull into a state park and fill up. Most of their day-use areas have a water spigot. As another poster said, make sure you have a "water thief" so that you can use any type of spigot connection. Other times we have found water fill-ups at truck stops at no charge or a small fee.

RE: Hitch/Receiver Pin

We pull a 10,000 lb. enclosed car trailer and I always wondered about pin capacity. Good to know that they are the same for most applications.

RE: Move to Motorhome

I've never owned a Class C, but I'll make a couple of guesses why people say not to get one too small. It needs to be big enough to have a walk around queen bed as climbing in and out of an overhead bed could get very tiring. Also, larger motorhomes tend to have more storage compartments, larger holding tanks, and fresh water tanks. Actual Class C owners can hopefully give more insight.

RE: Blizzard hits plains states and PNW

Are you goofballs actually arguing about the weather forecasting 131 years ago? That's what I was thinking...lol I just want to get out of central wa before the next snowfall on the passes. You're fine. I'm still asphalt paving in Eastern WA next week and likely in November too. Nosnoqualmie won't be an issue for quite a while yet, much to my chagrin. 10' of snow by next Friday would be Heaven, except for the work thing... Let me hit the road before that 10' of snow gets here...Lol

RE: Headlights blinking randomly

On a lot of cars the CB is in the hlight switch. Had a car that did the same thing. Circuit breaker was in the switch. Switch would get hot and lights would go out for a few seconds and then come back on. This scenario kept repeating. Replacing the switch solved the problem.

RE: First time Eternabond user observations

I've been using Eternabond tape for over 20 years on several motorhomes. I love the stuff. Once it's on, it's on for good and no more seam worries.

RE: Tire cables or chains

I would never put link chains on a motorhome as they could possibly beat the fiberglass to pieces if a link came loose. I have used cable chains and they worked fine with good traction on Oregon pass. Oregon DOT had a check point and gave me the thumbs up. I ran the inside dual onto a 2 by 6, so putting on the cable chains was a piece of cake as there was more than enough clearance to slide the cables under the outside dual.

RE: Sealant, Weatherproof Tape, & Coating; Or Sealant & Coating?

I use all three on my rubber roof. Eternabond works, I'm not familiar with the tape you are considering. If you apply Eternabond properly, it will be a one time repair. I've used Eternabond tape for 20 years around vents and seams on a couple of motorhomes and applied properly, I can say that I've never had a leak anywhere after applying it.

RE: Fall colours in Wa

We drove through Tumwater Canyon on the east end of Steven's Pass this morning and lots of trees are turning orange, red, and yellow now. Only a few campers in the Lake Wenatchee area today, so nice and quiet.

RE: Day 2 Lake Wenatchee * Leavenworth * RR Power Station * Golf

Thanks Camper Jeff and Kelli...the drive through Tumwater canyon was colorful with orange, yellow, red, and green leaves. We may drive through Chumstick to see more of what you have seen. Hope you get good fishing at Hood River.

RE: Day 2 Lake Wenatchee * Leavenworth * RR Power Station * Golf

Looks like you had a good time. We also like Leavenworth and the Lake Wenatchee area. We are heading up there on Monday as we like to wait until the week-enders are gone. We also like the Nason Creek campground. There are several campsites right on the river and we get half price with our senior pass. You're going to Lake Wenatchee but your profile says Lake Chelan. They do each have their features. Must be 40 years since I last played golf in Chelan. Have yourself a great weekend. I'm heading to near Hood River at Trout Lake, WA. To work but also get some great fishing in. Take care... We spend the summers at Lake Chelan but we like a change of scenery every so often and the fall colors should be on display going through Tumwater canyon now, so Lake Wenatchee will be a nice change for us.

RE: New gadget

Looks nice. There have been times I would have liked to have this over the table for rain or sun. Thanks for posting.

RE: Do you use a cargo trailer?

Yes, we tow a 22'x 8.5 enclosed trailer when using the 40' rv in our signature. We haul a small suv, sidexside utv, and a 150cc scooter in the trailer. One suggestion I have is if you choose a double axle trailer large enough for a suv, it is a good idea to have a hitch on the suv so that the trailer can be moved around at a campsite if necessary. A smaller single axle trailer could be moved around with a utv.

RE: Nothing Stays secure!

I've tried strapping vehicles "every which way but loose". The only thing that kept the vehicles from moving and loose straps was E-tracks with tire bonnets. The E-tracks kept all vehicles from moving and can be positioned anywhere in the trailer with full length E-tracks.

RE: Back hurting from bed in travel trailer - need advice please

We opted to spend the money for a Sleep Number bed and our backs couldn't be happier about it. IMO, spend the money on a good bed. I agree with getting a Sleep Number bed. Adjust it to whatever firmness or softness feels the most comfortable.

RE: Nothing Stays secure!

Purchase E-tracks and use 4 "over the tire" straps. E-Trailer and other ATV suppliers sell them. Did that on the SUV in our car trailer and no more movement after that.

RE: Any of you guys winterizing with air only?

Been using air only for about 15 years on two different 5th wheels...empty the water heater first, pressurize the system, open faucets one at a time until I get air only, hold the toilet flush valve until I get air only, put pink stuff in the drains, and open the low point drains...maybe 15 minutes if I take my time, and have never had a problem. Been doing it this way for 30 years on 8 different motorhomes and never had a problem.
