    Theft In Truck Stop

    We have never had a theft or problem like this while parked at any Travel Center or Wal-Mart. Whether just fueling or stopping overnight, sight seeing or to catch a meal. it's a shame, those Alcoa hubcaps and nut covers although not too expensive, are not that cheap just the same.

    Dometic awning 910BT20.000B will not retract

    Sounds like a voltage supply problem. When did you last service your house batteries?

    unwanted emails-again

    I enjoy recieving all the emails from FMCA. Sometimes it's something new, sometimes not. When it's something new, I am really glad they let me know. If it's an offer I've already taken advantage of, I simply just delete it. Not a BIG deal! Keep those emails coming.. Thanks!

    Ant Issue

    We often get ants while traveling in fact just spent time south of Atlanta last week where the sites were a mix of sandy gravel. Lots of ants! Invaded the MH in no time. We always us Hot Shot liquid ant bait stations. I just place them around the MH on the counters, floors, and within a day, most ants gone. Or dead. This product is inexpensive at less than $4 a box and readily available at any Walmart. We always carry 2 boxes with us, ready to exterminate pesky ants when needed!

    Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg

    Here at the KOA Pigeon Forge for a week of sightseeing and just enjoying the local offerings. Nice RV park! Great location. Toured Old Smokey Distillery yesterday. Couldn't resist a little tasting. On the agenda for this week, a few hikes in the Great Smokey Mountains National Park to enjoy the views, falls, etc., a couple of dinner theatre evenings, taking the OberGatlinburg tram to the top to enjoy the vista. What an interesting place!

    Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg

    Stopped by the Old Mill General Store yesterday. A little browsing, a little shopping, what a neat place. Will make a point of getting into the restaurant for dinner or lunch over the next few days. Menu sure looks good. Thanks for the tip. One thing about Pigein Forge and Gatlinburg, no shortage of restaurants to choose from!

    Owner's Presentation - Cummins Onan Generator

    Hi Mike, thanks for sharing this presentation. Very informative. Basically my inclination is to follow to the manufacturer's recommendations to the letter. I have done so so far and after many years of use have not had an issue.

    That doesn't sound right to me. My Previous coach was a 2001 and I believe it was more around 2000 RPM. With the advent of the 6 speed transmission, it has to be lower? I know my newer 2010 on the Workhorse chassis is at about 2000 RPM at 70...
  12. A friend of mine got his new cards today for his renewal. Out of curiosity he decided to look at the coverage. While doing so he realized his plan no longer covered motorhomes. He called to enquire and they told him that you now have to order the "Auto and RV Platinum" package to get Motorhome coverage. All other packages are just for towables now. Apparently this changed mid year. At $159.95 a year, not so much of a deal!

    Newton KOA

    We have spent many a weekend at the KOA in Newton Iowa. We have not noticed the sites to be any tighter or the roads to be any more difficult to navigate than many other KOA's that are just off the interstate.

    Recommendations- Nova Scotia

    You are correct. Many folks other than RVers also rent tow dollies with surge brakes from Uhaul to tow their car behind their Uhaul truck as they move across Canada.

    Flat Tow Tow Bar Choices

    That's 1 for Demco, 1 for Bkue Ox, and 1 for Road Master. Just keeping score...🙂

    Flat Tow Tow Bar Choices

    Have had a Blue Ox for 14 + years. Latest Blue Ox inspection and tune up at the rally in 2016 in Springfield. No issues to date. IMHO they make a pretty good product!

    Flat Tow Tow Bar Choices

    Have had both over the years, Road Master car mounted, and now a Blue Ox coach mounted. In the early years when we had the car mounted towbar, we would travel to our destination, unhook the toad, and then I would spend at least 20 minutes removing and storing the towbar. Once removed I was always left with "where to store the towbar". (I always removed it as we often wanted to run the toad thru a car wash). Usually I ended up storing the towbar on the ground under the MH. Secured it with a cable lock to the frame. Now we just unhook and fold the towbar against the RV. No need to lock, already held into the receiver with a locking pin. Takes less than a few minutes. IMHO the coach mounted option is the one to go for.
  19. We're partial to the 2016+ Chevy Colorado, 4 door Crew Cab, 4 x 4. lots of room for you and your friends, lots of room in the bed for your golf clubs or whatever.

    Who, What, When, Where or Just Lets Talk

    By the way Bill, thanks for the tip on this RV Park just outside of Ottawa. We often head into Ottawa for the weekend, would love to stay in the RV rather than a hotel. I didn't realize it was there.

    Who, What, When, Where or Just Lets Talk

    I'm thinking the $1.299 is in Canadian. We reside about 2 hours west of Ottawa and that's what it is here.
