    Dave & Tami Robertson :
    1 hour agoI am sure you all can relate...the very first time you had to dump your RV black tank. However, my husband and I purchased a new Class A off of a specilized Safari Trek forum group. The guy we bought it from didn't give it to us with an empty black tank...  more

    Thu at 7:48 AMWired in a 105dB beeper alarm on backup lights wiring today for our Country Coach Allure 470. That sucker is LOUD! Like a product that does its job well. One would think all Class A coaches would have these as standard equipment.

      Dennis &Lorece Hogeweide Thu at 1:14 PM If you are staying at truck stops then you will hear back up alarms at any hour I do not know of any commercial vehicles that have a shut off switch on a backup alarm.

        SouthParkSteve Thu at 1:17 PM At a truck stop it is pretty much expected, but not at a campground......

        LarandSus Thu at 4:29 PM I don't think truck stops have quiet hours but I've never stayed at one.

        David & Leslie Thu at 5:33 PM We stop at truck stops because we use diesel, lots of it.  We take on 100 gallons of diesel every 500 miles... much like trucks would do if they had 150-gallon tanks instead of 250-gallon tanks.  Plus, our RV with toad is as long as most trucks ...  more

        SACnFrau Thu at 8:52 PM I would rather wake someone up after quiet hours than hit a kid on a bike who was not paying attenion when I am backing up. Adding cutoff switch increases likelihood it will be disabled when I need it... safety first!

        Rich & Pat Tardell Thu at 9:19 PM SAC. You should have a spotter when you back up anyway.
        Safety First.

        SACnFrau Thu at 10:51 PM Agreed, always!
      • SACnFrau
        SouthParkSteve Thu at 11:57 PM If you always have a spotter, then why do you need a 105db backup beeper?
    • SACnFrau
      LarandSus 6 hours ago At any rate, 105db is in the Danger area for hearing loss and seems like overkill..

      Mark & JoAnn 52 minutes ago It never fails to amaze me how little it takes to get people to arguing on the internet. One guy installs a back up beeper, and others have to "beat him up" over it.  What's next... cuss out the guy in the next RV because his rig is too short, too lo...  more

      David & Leslie 38 minutes ago Oh crap!  My RV has loud air horns too.  But I'm innocent.  The RV came to me with both the loud back up beeper and the loud air horns.  I did not install them.  Honestly, I didn't.

    Tue at 10:27 PMWe have a 36’ fifth wheel & was wondering if any of you have traveled the I 95 from Jacksonville Florida to Bangor Maine. I know there might be tolls but is it a feasible drive? No restrictions? Thanks for your help! 😎

      Tomcamper Tue at 11:48 PM As interstates go, it is fine. The traffic in places is horrid regardless of the type of RV, lots of trucks, speeding and inconsiderate drivers. Stay at the speed limit, stay to the right and pull into rest areas as often as you can to calm your nerves. I...  more

      Dennis / Maureen Lendzion Wed at 4:52 AM I prefer to stay off the interstate as much as possible and see the country. Hwy 17 from Jax to Savanna is a pretty drive. Skidaway Island State Park by Savanna is a great park and a few miles from city and ocean. If you took 95 only you would miss these ...  more

      Maxine Wed at 5:16 AM Avoid the New Jersey Turnpike!  Lots of potholes and semis that do not budge.  Plus the highest tolls  in the country.  Right at $40.  Plus had to have my trailer realigned after NJ.  Other wise no problem!
