    New Awning Recomendations

    If you can find a Old Coleman dealer they may still have new stock left. They made the best awnings. Strong and heavy duty.

    Does the tow vehicle cut it?

    Remember this just because the tow vehicle manufacture says you can tow 5600 lbs does not mean you should. The rule of thumb is 80% of gross towing weight of T.V. which means you need a bigger vehicle. We up graded to a Nissan Armada which carries 7 people and tows 8500 lbs. I would recommend...

Then when roof was all the way up I tied down both corners to heavy pegs and never had a problem with the wind blowing the awning up...

    Which canvas replacement company would everyone recommend ?

    We used Bear Creek. They had ours in stock and shipped it directly to my pick up point in the USA for free. And I picked it up and brought it home in Canada. Great service and if I had any questions during the install they were more then happy to answer them.

    Higher Octane of any benefit for towing?

    Sorry but it separates from the real gas and causes more fuel problems. It is also a attraction to water. Take a look sometime at that gas can in your shop that very rarely get used. Pour it into a clean Paul and see how bad it has separated and how much water is in it. I have been repairing...

    Higher Octane of any benefit for towing?

    I use premium all the time. I get better gas mileage and not power. All those people that say just run regular or you will damage your engine are wrong. How would running a cleaner gas damage your engine. Also I have done alot of research on this topic and have found out that the added ethonal...

Also long trips I noticed a greater increase mileage on the highway trips. Also if you use regular gas you get 1 liter of ethanol to every 10...

    Refrigerator Hack

    That's a great idea. Over the years I have installed computer fans on my top vents to draw air to keep the fridge cooler when camping. It has worked amazing getting air flow through and around the back is the best way to keeping the fridge working properly and opening that vent looks like...

    2008 Fleetwood Evolution 3 Sagging Ceiling & Needing Braces

    Hi there, I'm thinking you have a roof leak. That style of roof is foam sandwiched between the aluminum. First thing I would do is check for a roof leak along the seals. And then soon if the ceiling is full of water. By pushing up on the ceiling.

    Goodbye to Walmart camping?

    I'm still trying to figure out that it's Walmart's fault . Did Walmart start the fire? So many questions should be asked before layers should be aloud to waste time in the courts. Really the only people that win in this kind of case is the lawyers.
