  1. Thanks Richard. I have decided to try the Zero G. The light weight and ease of handling are very appealing. Jim
  2. I have a couple of Camco water hoses (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004ME11FS/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 ) that were highly rated, but I think they are terrible. Contrary to claims, they kink easily and are difficult to coil up, even when warm. Can anyone recommend something else for me to try? Thanks! Jim
  3. I find this discussion quite interesting, and I am curious how much of it applies to our little 5-speed Allison 1000 with the 5.9L ISB engine. I have experimented a bit with the Econ mode, but couldn't detect a significant difference so I don't use it. On uphill grades I tend to downshift manually when I decelerate to about 1900 RPM, which jumps the RPM up to around 2500. The engine seems happier.
  4. Most of the time we hear about good camping areas from friends. We have often camped in our local national forests, and because of our proximity we usually scout out suitable sites in our Jeep before making the trip in the motorhome.
  5. Thanks, JD. I will check out your tips.
  6. My wife and I have been RVing for about 45 years, and about 90% of the time have been boondocking. But that has always been camping in the desert or the forest with a group. We are about to take a trip in Arizona during which we will want to stop overnight and are considering boondocking, probably west or south of the Phoenix area off of the I-10. I am interested in experience and suggestions. We would consider rest areas, Walmarts, or just out in the middle of the desert somewhere. Thanks.
  7. I replaced ours with an aluminum from Source, and dittos the kudos to them. I also checked Talin (Chris Throgmartin), but theirs was too large. The takeaway is be sure to carefully measure your space and make sure you check measurements of a replacement before buying.
  8. My Rear View Safety camera is on whenever the key is. I like it that way.
  9. About three years ago I replaced our old camera with this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002GM5GKO/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I was able to reuse the original cable with this: RVS splice kit: https://www.rearviewsafety.com/splice-kit.html. It wasn't a bad job once I figured out the old wire color coding.
  10. We have one of those. I believe Lyght and Esco are one and the same.
  11. Out of curiosity, Bill, how old was the tire that blew?
  12. I changed our little 8 cu.ft. Norcold for a 10 cu.ft. Magic Chef a little over a year ago. Not the greatest brand, perhaps, but it fit and has been working fine. What a difference!
