  1. Howdy Deb, I don't know the extent of the damage, but if you are requiring a new roof, especially if insurance will cover it, I would suggest RVFlexArmor. They have a location in that part of the country: Country Camping Corner Location: 101 Oak Grove Rd Kings Mountain, NC 28086 Toll Free Telephone: (833) 422-6809 I traveled all the way from the middle of Kansas to Denton, TX to get mine done by this company. I am very pleased with the results, and I like the fact that I never need worry about caulking the roof penetrations, or even going up on the roof ever again. It comes with a no-leak, transferable warranty. They give free estimates. For more information on RVFlexArmor (also known as RVRoof.com), I wrote an article in Escapees Magazine on them. It's in the March/April 2019 edition, starting on page 35.
  2. Just registered. This will be my first RV Rally of any kind. Looking forward to it.
  3. I used to be a Good Sam member as well. I too enjoyed their Highways magazine. My favorite column was their RV Advocacy column where they would help rv owners struggling with dealers and manufacturers to get their rv repaired. They appeared to get some good results. Do they not do that anymore? If not, then who can provide that kind of assistance today? The last time I received their magazine, they had reduced the Highways magazine into a section of Trailer Life or Motorhome Magazine. Kirk, I hear your intent for this post, and I agree with you that Good Sam Club today bears very little resemblance to the original organization.
  4. The Jack Blocks may be hollow, but they do have structure inside to reinforce them. My experience with them with my HHII has been flawless, even with the all the tires lifted off the ground. Of course, I'm not as heavy as a DA or Champagne.
  5. Kirk, that was a great question. You are near Houston, right? I noticed we haven't heard from anyone in the Valley (S. Texas) yet. I would be interested in hearing occupancy rates there.
  6. I have HWH hydraulic leveling on my HitchHiker fifthwheel. Sitting in my driveway, which was almost level front to back, but had a crown in the middle going side to side, I was not able to get the thing level. The rams just weren't long enough. I solved the problem by purchasing Andersen Hitches 3608 | Trailer Jack Block with Magnets. You can get them on Amazon at the following link: https://www.amazon.com/Andersen-Hitches-Trailer-Magnets-Single/dp/B0754NWJGR/ref=asc_df_B0754NWJGR/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=312158556601&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=12202739784666744957&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9024453&hvtargid=pla-569512236131&psc=1 They are pricey. But, not only do I have no problems leveling my fiver, but I can also lift the tires off the ground, which may come in handy if I have to fix a flat on the side of the road some day. They work for me.
  7. The RV Show USA will have Chuck on their show tonight. You can watch via YouTube or their Facebook page. Every Wednesday starting at 7PM Central Time, they live stream their show, which will air on various radio stations that weekend.
  8. Traveled from northeast Nebraska to Pheonix to visit family for Christmas. After Christmas, started back taking the southern route to avoid as much winter weather as possible. Made it all the way back to Nebraska with no problems. Then it happened. Just 1 hour from home, we transitioned from one county to the next on 2 lane highway and hit black ice! The other counties had salted their highways. This county did not. We ended up jackknifing and landed in the ditch facing the opposite direction. Fiver kissed the cab, blowing out the rear window. That turned out the be the only damage. It took local law enforcement to block the road and two tow trucks to winch us out as the snow was very deep and like concrete. It was a very cold ride the rest of the way home. When we got home, I entered the fifth wheel. The refrigerator doors had flung open during the accident, released the entire contents of the fridge onto the floor, and then the doors had closed themselves up. All the eggs ended up on the floor basically turning into egg-sicles because it was so cold.
  9. It would be interesting to know what caused the fire. The article just mentioned something malfunctioning.
  10. Try some Andersen Jack Blocks. They are relatively new to the market, and may help with your problem. I just bought two for my rig. https://andersenhitches.com/Blog/2017/04/trailer-jack-blocks https://www.amazon.com/Andersen-Hitches-2-Pack-Trailer-Magnets/dp/B0754MYT4R/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1518894463&sr=8-1&keywords=andersen+jack+block
  11. I checked out their website, but I didn't see where this film will be released.

  13. Howdy Kirk, We overloaded a generator (too many items running), and the breaker tripped. The engine continued running, but there was no electricity being generated. We reduced the number of items running off of it, reset the breaker, and all was well.
  14. I have had both electric and hydraulic (HWH). The electric is much slower, but far less to go wrong with it. Both have been trouble free for me.
