    Announcement - Retirement of Club President

    Jim... You are the best and I'm not sure there is anyone that can fill your shoes in the HOC! Good luck with your new gig and if you and Nancy ever get down to Yuma, AZ...I'll show you where to get some real Mexican food! Hope to see you someday soon!

    Dual drains on 2021 Sundance?

    Sounds like you have front and rear sewer tanks. The 'Y' connection that Dan posted about is exactly what you need. You will probably need to buy more sewer hose along with that 'Y' connection. I had a Heartland Trail Runner TT a few years back and had the same thing... I carried 40-feet of...

    RV Industry Sales and Order Backlog

    One other big trend now that the new 'lifestyle' seems to be selling their homes and moving the whole family in to RV's, many campgrounds and RV parks are now becoming trailer parks (ie - permanent living parks)...and are no longer a campground.

    Rv gps

    I did end up getting the larger Rand McNally 7-inch screen RV GPS Android Tablet device...and it is awesome! Does anything that any phone app will do plus more! It works just like any GPS when just travelling, but when you connect to the Wifi in your cell phone...it just can't be beat! $350...

    Go with starting your own savings account to fund any repairs. Chances are you'll come out ahead in the long run. Don't ask me how I know this.

    General, can you leave slide out all the time?

    My slides were always out when my RV's were parked next to my house... Never had any issue whatsoever.

    Hi from Quartzsite 2020.

    Look in Phoenix for a truck bed topper... You might have better luck there for used ones. I've been looking for one around Yuma and can't find any used ones to fit my Chevy, and can't order them new right now because of the Covid.

    Don't waste your money... Better off to open a savings account and call that your RV extended warranty.

    Melted Dometic AC covers

    Here in the southwestern Arizona desert, where we had three weeks of daily 115+ degree temps recently, the sun will melt vent lids and dry rot AC shrouds quickly. I work in an RV parts store in Yuma and every day we have people with brand new to maybe two to three year old RV's with dry-rotted...

    Almost Over

    I know how you feel, John... It was a bittersweet moment watching someone else driving away with my Prowler 5th-wheeler in tow... But, life changes and life moves on! Time for a new adventure! :cool: We may get a new RV sometime in the future...or might just drive around and stay in hotels...

    Living room ac stops starts right back up

    However, switching his AC from 'AUTO' to 'HI' or 'LOW' did solve his problem... :confused: :cool:

    Living room ac stops starts right back up

    It will do that because 'AUTO' fan mode is for the furnace...not the AC. Run the AC unit on 'HI' or 'LOW' fan settings and it should work normally.

    Question on Selling an RV

    Yes! Had my Prowler listed on 15 different Facebook Marketplaces for over a month and not one single real inquiry. I did, however, get several offers from Nigeria, the Soviet Union and the middle east offering to send me a personal check once their peeps traveled the seven seas to get here...

    Back Up Water

    I sure do miss those Michigan thunderstorms...born and raised there...spent 33 of my 60 years there! As for keeping water in the fresh water tank...learned my lesson about that a few years back and always had a full tank of water! At least five times I was the only one in the park that could...

    ZEEMAX Trailer Express Tires

    My rule of thumb is this... If a tire has a goofy name like ZEEMAX, TowMax (AKA - BlowMax), Tire King, Tow King or something similar, or is a strange brand name you've never ever heard of... DON'T BUY THEM! Stick with Goodyear Endurance, Hercules SP2's, Maxxis 8008's...and you you won't...

    Furrion DVD player.

    If the radio/audio part of the stereo works, then you are in luck! Just keep it...buy a real DVD/BluRay player and hook it up to the TV, then run a cord from the headphone jack of your TV to the 'AUX' in of the built-in stereo...and you will be up and running!

    Hot water heater

    Do you mean Atwood water heater? You may have two switches...maybe one. One will probably be on the panel inside...the other (if it has this one) will be outside behind the water heater door on the lower left hand side. The outside one I like to use as the safety switch...in other words, that...
