  1. There is only 2 FHU RV parks on S. Padre Island, the rest are "close" to the island. I think there are a couple on N. Padre island too. This explains dry camping on the island: https://www.nps.gov/pais/planyourvisit/camping.htm Since dry camping is 12 miles from everything else, if/when you get stuck it's going to be expensive getting towed back to hard surface roads. All the other information is here: https://www.campendium.com/texas/south-padre-island FWIW, we did stay on the beach for a week. Really regretted it when we got back home in the spring. EVERYTHING steel was rusted, ruined both bicycles. Truck frame rusted really bad. All the sand contains salt.
  2. It's beginning to look like we'll get it back just in time to winterize it; the shop just began the painting prep process last Monday.
  3. Consider joining this FMCA chapter: http://alfaseeyas.com/ I"m confident you'll find a member that can supply you with a copy.
  4. I'm sorry to read of your circumstances. I like your approach to handling what life dishes up; it is what it is and I'll deal with it. A professor once told me; tomorrow isn't here yet so all we can do is plan for its coming, yesterday is past and we can't change it, we can only control today.
  5. Google is your friend for something like this; the results depend on how and which search terms are used.
  6. IMO grease temperature rating and grade are the most important. Some grease types are not recommended for the automatic slack adjusters, but as far as I know S-cams are not included. #2 grease is soft so it will fill voids, which eliminates the chance of water collecting and causing damage. ref: https://www.bendix.com/media/documents/press_releases/2015/TechTip_S_CamMaint_FINAL0615.pdf NLGI consistency table NLGI number ASTM worked penetration (10–1 mm) Appearance at room temperature 000 445–475 very fluid 00 400–430 fluid 0 355–385 semi-fluid 1 310–340 very soft 2 265–295 soft 3 220–250 medium hard 4 175–205 hard 5 130–160 very hard
  7. Saferide RV motorclub is the current FMCA ERA provider. The policy contract states; quote: "Benefit does not apply to recovery work (IE: RV is down a hillside or embankment) or if the RV has been in an accident."
  8. WildBill, it's gonna hit 94° here today, tomorrow 70° and Fridays high 68°. Sat morning 48°. I can handle hot or cold, but _really, both in 3 days? I shouldn't gripe, this cold front is keeping Fiona out in the Atlantic instead of hitting the East coast.
  9. Welcome to the FMCA discussion forums! First step is to have the battery load-tested and cells measured with a hydrometer . If either test fails to meet standards, replace battery. The next step is to use an ammeter to measure current draw from the battery when the key is off. There should be very little, is the phantom current draw is substantial, next is locating the source. That is accomplished by unhooking things like radios and other things attached to the chassis battery one at a time while watching the DC ammeter.

  10. I totally agree Richard. There's a man on irv2.com who has owned/operated a DP for over 20 yrs according to him he's never performed an air brake check. crazy.
  11. Another thing that might help is increasing the alignment castor to the maximum specified.
  12. What is the brand and model of your refrigerator? Without that information anything suggested is just an EWAG.
  13. Newer stud finders can detect metal framework, check them out.
  14. Wayne get one of those glass hammers like Mac talked about; smack the windshield t shatter it, kick out the remains and walk out. If a MH is on its side, the windshield may already be broken out. Further MH damage is the least of my concerns when escape is a must.
