    I'm back

    Had cruise control on 55 mph. Also checked pressure that morning. Pretty sure it was road hazard as both tires appeared to blow simultaneously and both were on the same side of the trailer. Bob

    Ant bite or spider bite

    Because it's very costly? At some point it may be necessary but, as you know, only the individual involved can make the decision about when that's the case. Bob

    I'm back

    I doubt if anyone noticed, but I've been absent from the forum for a few months. We had a catastrophic accident from a double tire blowout that totaled our 5th wheel and our truck. We are, thank God, fine. We have a new 5th wheel and a new truck. National General Insurance company was very fair...

    Dental work in Algodones

    I would like to thank the forum members for guiding me to Algodones for my dental issues. I had to have a difficult extraction of a wisdom tooth root that would have cost me in excess of $6 due to anesthesiologist fees and surgical center charges plus the oral surgeon fees. I also needed a crown...

    Re: new to forum

    Welcome to the forum. It's good that someone working at an RV dealership is actually active in camping. Too many times the staff and salespeople are clueless about what really happens in the course of traveling in an RV. We're fairly new at the lifestyle ourselves but learning that the people we...

    Removing Dicor from a rubber roof

    Thanks for the info. I have a wife so I have a hair dryer.  The replacement combiner is moderately larger than the existing one so I may not have to get it perfectly flat if it will fit around the current footprint. Bob

    Removing Dicor from a rubber roof

    My 5th wheel has a 200 watt panel on it from the factory. I've attached two 250 watt panels and need to remove the small combiner box and replace it with one that can handle three inputs. I've never dealt with removing Dicor before. It appears to be quite well adhered and I'm concerned about...

    End of an Era

    We went through the same things a couple of months ago but also had to close up my 42 years of solo medical practice. I found things in drawers in my office that looked like they came from the beginning of the last century. For the first few years of my practice I did my own blood counts and...

    Brit's touring in the US

    Can't help with all, but you'll definitely have to get the truck registration done once it's in Texas. It will have to have a Texas inspection and then registered with the state. You can get temporary paperwork as far as I know. Even though I've lived here most of my life I never had to deal...

    Tankless water heater

    Even though we have one in our rig I'm afraid that I can't help you because we haven't had a chance to try it out yet. I'm curious to know what the brand is. I've been reading that they're improving them constantly and am a bit surprised at your issues. Bob

    Leveling jacks and slides quit simultaneously.

    After lots of reading I called an RV repair person and he directed me to a tiny (about the size of a #2 pencil lead) black reset button. It was hidden behind wires in the front compartment and, voila, there was power everywhere.  :)

    Leveling jacks and slides quit simultaneously.

    Moved my trailer to a new location and upon arrival, the leveling jacks and slides would not work. The area is rather unlevel. Bought it used and I?m not sure of the hydraulic system brand but says ?Lippert? on the hoses. There?s a rectangular white button, ⅓ of which can be seen behind the...

    Trying to decide on Purchasing an Open Range Fifth Wheel

    The Open Range was on our wish list 4 years ago when we first started looking at 5th wheels and, about that time, they sold out to Jayco and the quality seemed to drop for awhile. Things are very fluid in the RV industry though. We lost interest when we found floorplans and amenities in another...

    Visiting South Texas - Gulf Area

    I grew up in Port Arthur.  Janis was 2-3 years ahead of me at Thomas Jefferson High. Jimmy Johnson (ex Cowboys coach) was there at the same time. I didn't have any idea that either person existed. Port Arthur is a town of swamps, good seafood, refineries and mosquitoes. The beach is about ...

    Hello from the Texas Hill Country

    Welcome to the forum. Lots of information in the library here. We're from Plano and my brother lives in Spring Branch, overlooking the Guadalupe. We're retiring in a couple of weeks and going to visit him and his wife shortly thereafter. Bob

    Can I Tow it?

    That's the weight of the trailer and what's inside it, but a couple of other things--You need the weight your specific vehicle can tow. You also have to make certain your specific vehicle can handle the weight that the hitch will put on it plus anything that you carry IN the vehicle ("the...

    The beginning is in sight!

    I'm retiring in two months and we've been planning for about 4 years. My DW is very picky about what she wants to live in. For that reason I thought I was going to have to purchase a new 5th wheel. Specifically a Cedar Creek Champagne edition. A week before Memorial Day she found the exact...
