I'd suggest you try again this summer.



Capt. Mike

On my Flagstaff the problem wasn't too tight, it was too loose. The new handle was 1" shorter than the old one, so there would have been a gap.

Here are some of the vendors scheduled to be in Goshen for the FROG Rally. More vendors and seminars will be added, but I'm still waiting for registrations to be returned.

Note that Arrow Distributing, who was with us last year, is a wholesaler who specializes in stocking RV dealerships' parts stores around the country. They have a huge warehouse in Elkhart. If you're looking for something that they didn't bring, they're able to run over and pick it up and bring it the next day.

I am always amused by the North American Fetish about having blue water rolling around in a toilet bowl and believing that it has superior anti bacterial qualities. It makes money for the brands that have got the public to believe these fantasies. Good old chlorinated city water is as good as anything and doesn't cost anything. Anything else is kitsch fantasy! Stick with good undisguised sanitation standards. The only thing the blue does is to hide the fact that the toilet bowl owner is too lazy to clean it!

It's not for the toilet bowl, it's to keep the stuff from sticking to the black tank and kill the odor.

They went right on my AlKo axles with no problem...

If they run another special like they did in 2013, I would definitely look into them if they did not come standard on your camper.

True, in my case one bearing was not torqued properly, but the technicians were overworked and dog tired by the time they got to me. Lippert made good and I am a "Happy Camper". I hope to see them there again this year!

That sounds like the Nivea ad that claims that if you rub their cream on your stomach and thighs that the fat will drop off.

Put me down for some of that. Unfortunately, I just read that the shampoo I've been using provides, thicker, fuller body. Apparently that's my problem.

Yes these wonderful P&G people dreaming up solutions for problems that we never knew that we had. unfortunately these and the blue water trick do little for performance in the black water tanks but allow us to part with our hard earned dollars on useless remedies.

You are certainly free to believe what you want, but it does work whether you believe it or not.

Bob looks like a great list of "approved vendors" selling stuff. Looks like my air ride pinbox might be a purchase this year.

Apparently you suffer from the same affliction I do; allowing the shampoo to run off my head and down my body.

Guess I'm going to have to start washing my hair (which I'm proud to say I still have) while upside down.
