    EVENT: North American Heartland Rally: IN, Goshen - 6/12/2023 to 6/18/2023

    I live in Ft. Wayne, If you're going to use this route coming in on 30 West, take the I-469 North exit. Then 469 to I-69 South, then 33 to Goshen. It's shortest and easiest... maybe that's what David meant, but maybe a bit more clear.

    Offensive smell coming from Rear kitchen area when running bathroom exhaust fan

    I read many posts about the studor valve. In our case, it was the gap where the holding tank vent pipes exit the roof. I removed the vent pipe cover then sealed that gap. No more odor. Apparently when the exhaust fan ran, it would pull odor from the gap in the ceiling.

    Serious build quality issues

    I think you're correct about used being better than new. Our 2012 Bighorn was in fact much better when we sold it in 2017, than it was when new... tires, suspension, finish, furniture, water system.... that buyer got a heluvu great deal! I believe the trick buying used is, was the unit...

    RV Insurance

    P.S.... FYI ...... insurance rates vary by State & where you live. Also, rates depend on coverage amounts selected. If you are a full time live aboard/traveller, you need to designate that fact as it will impact any claim made as well as your rate.

    Wheel bearing lubrication

    More FYI..... (copied from lube engineering) Grease can be thought of in terms of paint in that there are a variety of formulations that are used in various applications. You could apply latex paint to the hull of your boat and it would look very nice, however, it would not last very long once...

    Wheel bearing lubrication

    Nothing wrong with it... its most likely still Lithium based grease with molybdenum additive (moly), which is a solid material. Molybdenum by itself would look like black talcum powder, so it needs a carrier/base; i.e. most commonly lithium.

    Switching Winegard Rooftop Antenna to Dish

    The Tailgator worked great for us! Very simple to use; just sit it on ground or table pointing generally South ( doesn't need to be precise) and system does the rest. Much better than roof mount as you can sit it where you gey a clear view of sky and not worry about being blocked by tree at...

    Tank odors

    Do you have a washing machine hook up? If there is a space for a washing machine, whether or not you actually have the machine, there is a vent thru the ceiling that needs to be sealed around thd pipe like thd you did around the roof vent.

    Detergent Pods at Campground Laundromats

    I'm sure that comment was tongue in cheek... besides, it's about reading directions. Toddlers would expect the parent to do the reading, which apparently they don't. So, they're likely the same ones who put the pod in the dispenser.

    Detergent Pods at Campground Laundromats

    We stayed a week at Mountain Valley RV in Heber City, UT. They also had the signs that said No Pods, and doing so would get you ejected from their RV park.... my opinion is they are operating under some sort of misinformation.

    Replace the couch in the slide

    FYI if anyone ever needs to bolt down a new chair, etc in the slide. I used a couple Stainless Steel Elevator Bolts. These have a flat head that don't stick out after installed, and worked great for me to secure a couple LazyBoy recliners to replace the sofa. With the slide open, mark the...

    Seal or wax

    Definitely use one of the so-called ceramic sealers. They have nothing to do with ceramic, but are polymer sealants. I used one called Rejex. First year Applied twice, then one time per year. My finish looked as good or better after five years. We were always outside as we were full time...

    Security for unattended RD210 in permanent site

    My opinion, the more locks, the greater chance of expensve damage. I would just put it on blocks and remove the wheels. Beyond that, don't leave any valuables insde.

    Humana Advantage Plans

    I'm in the group that feels traditional Medicare with a supplement is the way to go. Once you change to any of the Advantage plans, you can never go back to Medicare. Advantage plans all have certain additional coverages, but nothing is free, so you'll pay for them in the end.
