Deer Whistles for your Coach!

Hi Gang! It just crossed my mind to post this- I wanted to recommend to everyone to consider buying a pair of Deer Alerts (whistles) to install on the front end of your rigs. We've used em for the last 10 years and they truly seem to work! Of course, you can never be too safe while travelling in your motorcoach, so every little bit helps. Just thought I'd post and say HAPPY SPRING, since it looks like it's finally here. Cheers, Chris in Columbus

"Is that an Optical 'Delusion'... or does the rear curbside wall slide out from the camper? That's a neato-lookin' unit, it reminds me of the old Apache Ramada we used to own... same basic principal! Nice work!"

110 Marine Water Heater

Hi Franny-

Here are a couple pics of our new Whale Seaward S1100.

The front looks similar to (I'd imagine) what your coach originally had installed. The back is pretty plain, but has the two inlet/outlet barbs on it.

The box itself measures 16" high by 16" wide and 22" deep... just about the same size as our original water heater.

This one runs on 110v, and also heats from the engine's radiator when you're running down the road. This one…

Thanks for the invite Criss, you are blessed to be central to a large number of State Parks, This year I've been to Alum Creek, MT Gilead, and Indian Lake. I camped up at Mid Ohio Race track for the Vintage Grand Pre. I plan on a trip over to Delaware Dam soon if health and other factors work out. I have two boys that live north of Columbus. one in Marrysville and the other just north of East Liberty in a nice little town called Zanesfield. witch is the main reason for my camping trips. I actually Bought my Motor home from a family in Dellaware a 1978 Travel Craft had 19,900 miles on it and had survived a tornado. GORV's is a great place for people who have older RV's they have helped me bring my camper back up to speed. there are resources and links for just about any rehab or repairs you would come across and a lot of experienced folks to answer questions and give advice on just about any topic. Again thanks for the invitation and welcome to GORV's
