    I joined the cult of Blackstone

    We have had a Colmen Roadtrip for about 2 years and we hate it, it's bulky (heavy) and not stable, we used it once and it sits in the garage now. We have the large blackstone at home and will be getting a collapsible blackstone in the near future.

    I had to take out the battery in the smoke alarm right next the cooktop for the same reason.

    First timer mistakes....

    Over the three years we have had our RV I have really enjoyed coming on this forum and learning, laughing from others who are willing to share their knowledge in the RV world. So I was curious what mistakes or accidents did you make when you first started RV'ing? 1. Parked the RV in our side...

    Trip planning applications

    We like Roadtrippers. It gives you a lot of information about what is around you to see (gas, food, sights) and you can change the diameter of the search area.

    How much to invest in updates to an old coach?

    Our coach is a 1994 that was in good condition, we have slowly upgraded a few things that we wanted to add, Shower head, new flat screen tv's and Blue Ray players in the bedroom and in front, added a newer rear view camera (old one was black & white). We don't use the RV more then about 6-8...

    old backup camera system

    I can't remember the brand of backup camera that I now have upgraded to but it is a wired single camera system. I had the same thought about using the existing wiring but the connections were different and I chose to just rewire. It wasn't hard just time consuming running the wire, I chose to go...

    WORST roads for RV travel: Your nominee(s)??

    I-90 through Eastern Washington State. Concrete roads, cracked my windshield from sheer bumpiness from the middle top and middle bottom of the front windshield on my last trip to Idaho.

    1999 pace arrow wont start

    If your rig has an auxiliary switch you can hold that down to start it. That will usually work if the chassis battery is low/dead.

    Ok to drive with propane fridge on?

    I drive with it on. In Washington state, if you take one of the ferry routes they make  you turn it off and give you a tag to place on the tank indicating that you have turned it off.

    Every day is a learning experience - Anti-theft

    All is well, just an observation that you really never stop learning when RVing and shouldn't stop learning.

    Every day is a learning experience - Anti-theft

    My wife was taking the RV for the weekend with our Granddaughter and less then a block away from the house the RV died and wouldn't restart. She called me at work for the rescue and about half way to rescue her I called her and asked if she by chance hit the anit-theft device on the left of the...

    Who drives the OLDEST Class A here?

    I have a 94 Pace Arrow. We recently went to the RV show in town and honestly we wouldn't change our older rig for a newer rig. Beyond internal materials that were used on the newer RV being nicer the craftsmanship didn't seem to be too good. Lots of doors and cabinets didn't close correctly. We...

    Looking for propane grill recommendations

    We have a Colemen Roadtrip but it's horrible to cook on and rickety, my wife bought it for me for Fathers day but she hates it too. We have since went backwards and are using a cooking grill over the campfire when we want to cook outside (if allowed).

    Going RV tv show on GAC

    We pretty much did online research for used RV's based on our budget and what they had in stock. Went and looked at 3 that fit that budget and bought what we thought was the best deal of the 3. But yes that show probably is partial reality, partial scripted. I know for a fact that my wife or I...

    Manual vs Electric Awnings

    That was one of my concerns from the pictures/videos advertising them that is what I have seen the manual is more adjustable.

    Manual vs Electric Awnings

    Currently I have a manual awning on the MH, it's basically a PITA to take out but I like using it when we are stopped for a couple days. We are contemplating changing it out for an electrical awning. Any opinions either way, keeping it or switching it out?

    What is YOUR OPINION as to the ideal age of a used MH to buy?

    We bought our 94 Fleetwood because we could afford it and it basically had what we wanted (not knowing what we needed exactly). It didn't hurt that it only had one owner before us and was a limited edition 25th anniversary model with relative low miles of 65,000. We have been to numerous RV...

    Power Steering fluid out the breather tube

    As always, thanks for the guidance and suggestions. Last night I started the rig and slowly moved the wheel back and forth and the noise dissipated a bit. Turned it off and then pumped the brakes till rock hard, slightly depressed the pedal and started the MH and the sound was nearly gone. So...

    Power Steering fluid out the breather tube

    Did the L/R bleed method for a while (10 times or more) and drove around the block. When I parked it back home it back flowed again. I plan to systematically check all the lines in the system tonight when I get home.

    Power Steering fluid out the breather tube

    I plan on checking the lines and the reservoir tonight. I read that the reservoir screen at the bottom can get gummed up and blocked. The new pump that I installed resulted in the same backflow problem.

    Power Steering fluid out the breather tube

    Drove my rig to fill up with gas. Started rig and I had no power steering. As I was driving back home the power steering would work then not work, brakes had limited function also. Stopped at home to check things out and power steering fluid was coming out of the breather tube on the top of the...

    Window replacement options

    Got a quote for $1,234 for glass and installation from RV Glass Solutions. Checking with insurance to see what they will cover, but looks like they are going to be my option. Thanks for everyone's input, this site has been a great help for me with just 1 year of being a RV owner.
