    Any FL rallies coming up? I want info!

    Just like the title says, I want info if anyone has a rally in FL coming up. I looked in the forums, but the new layout is a little hard for me to follow still. Anyone already start a thread on this? I am in St Pete, so central FL is my choice. We only have around 45 school days left. Then...

    Gotta leak:-(

    Wow, wife[atd] and I are kind of in the market for a travel trailer and when I see this on such a new unit I cringe. The repair job is totally poop. The real sad thing is the campers are built like crap to begin with. We currently have a Viking with all the features we love, but the sides of the...

    Welcome Back

    I too can say I liked being able to scroll down the side of the old pages and find new comments and jumping right in to share my opinion. [V] However in time we will get to understand the new layout. It would be helpful if someone could put together a tutorial[RTM] to help us learn this new...

    1983 Viking "gasser" resto

    Maybe the real issue is Yahoo wants me to make an account to see it... I do not think other hosting sites do that...? Can you see my pictures from the other day? I did the first ones from google photos and second ones from photobucket. I just did a test and google photos did not work. Here is...

    1983 Viking "gasser" resto

    Dixie, your link has died and I missed it. I think it has something to do with the big Yahoo breach... Moneypit, I just stumbled across this thread and your are killing it! It will be nice to see the new canvas on it. I was worried the AC unit would be too much for the manual lifts... Thanks...

    Cool. I just stumbled across this post and I'm glad I did . I have roof issues I need to deal with. My side boards are also rotted out. Here is my issue: and You can see my side walls are done. I have done some other repairs, so I should be okay. But your tread really helps encourage me...

    Help with a cast iron griddle/grill seasoning

    I do agree with not using OO, I did it for years with same results as you, black glass. However over time the pans I would not use for a while would start to have a distinct flavor that was not good. I had to do a semi-deep cleaning and re-season. I think the OO was going rancid. So following...

    Help with a cast iron griddle/grill seasoning

    I think what happens is with quality CI it may be fine. But from what I read the newer cheaper stuff does not do too well with this type of treatment. Honestly I do not know. I DO know I have never done it and have not needed to. My stuff looks and works great. Maybe if Lodge or Camp Chef said...

    Help with a cast iron griddle/grill seasoning

    Oh boy, so may opinions... Here is mine! DO NOT put in oven on clean cycle. You can google it and see why that is a bad idea. You do need to clean it very well. At this time I would say you may want to strip it completely. You can do this with lye or you can just clean it by bringing some...

    What's Wrong With This?

    I read a lot of the replies, but not all of them. I think a siphon might be your only answer. In other words a straw that can suck the water off the bottom. I have seen wands or small tubing that would work for this. Otherwise keep some bleach (or something) in there so mold and bacteria do not...

    You need to know what type of axle you have. If the pictures you shared are before you already have access for greasing. If in doubt pop the cap off and wipe it all down with a few rags and look for a zerk. If you have dexter torsion axles you have ezlube hubs and just need to add grease via the...

    Anastasia State Park Florida

    We are in St Petersburg. The caverns were really neat. The night and day tours are both fun as you see different areas of the caves. The condition of the sky is totally irrelevant while under ground. But night tours are done by flashlight only. Well worth the trip! FL Bill

    May buy Viking this week- tips or concerns welcome

    We love our viking. The 1906 looks a little small, but we are 4 and a dog. And we normally bring friends of the kids as well. The roof is fiber glass and not the abs plastic you hear about with coleman. HTH FL Bill
