Hello from Lake Conroe Tx.

Just signed up today and already found lots of information that I have been looking for about my RV. The wife and I are new to the RV world and have took one short trip about 200 miles. We purchased a 2008 Damon 378 challenger about 6 weeks ago. The RV is on a workhorse frame and I have already took it in for the brake recall and the gas tank hose repair. The unit I bought had 3,100 miles on it and is in very good shape. Everything works and I changed the oil in the generator. My question is that I would like to lube the (3) slide out with Protect All but only one slide is exposed. How do you get to the slides on the other 2?

Welcome from another Lake Conroe area member.

Are you talking about the slide gears? I'm not familiar with the Damon enough to answer your question but I would suggest you post the question down in the Thor section...betcha you'll get a quick answer.

Glad to hear the report on Birch Creek. I'm looking for nice parks within a couple hours of Houston and Sommerville was on my list to explore.

You might try Cagle state park on lake Conroe, Lake Livingston State park on the Lake. They are both within an hour or two of Houston

Since its only 30 minutes from the house, we spend New Years at Cagle each year. Just for clarification, Cagle is not a Texas state park but rather part of the National Forest. $10/night, 50 amp, w/s with the Golden Age card.

Sam Houston National Forest - Cagle Recreation Area

That's why they call it the Golden Age card because you can't remember if you were at a State or National park. Happy Thanksgiving everyone or is it Christmas?

I can't wait until I'm eligible to join the OFC - got a few years yet. I have the State Park Pass and may have to invest in the National Park Pass - but I don't think the annual pass gives the same discounts in national forest lands, does it?

The Golden age pass has been dropped. Now it's called Amercia the Beautiful. The card cost $10. for a lifetime membership and you must be at least 62 Years young. You also get half off camping rates at all National Parks Very Good Deal!!!!

hwishard:

G'morning from Casa Grande, AZ, Happy Thanksgiving, and....a BIG WELCOME to the iRV2 gang!!

Before "lubing" your slides, etc., make sure you check with other Damon owners about the advisability of doing so. Not sure which mechanism(s) you're planning to "lube", but be careful, since on many rigs w. slides they DO NOT recommend applying any kind of lubricating material, or, they only recommend applying a certain kind of such material to certain parts of your slide apparatus.

The reason for this is that road dust, and other particles of debris will tend to adhere to the lubricating material, will eventually build up a matting of such dust and debris, and will adversely affect the smooth operation of your slides. Be sure to check before applying such lube!!

Again, Welcome to iRV2.

Steve & Lynette
