    I have cruise control and overdrive in my '87 Sunrader with 22R engine. I use the overdrive and cruise control when on flat ground or downhill, then shift out of it when climbing a hill, this works great once you get the rhythm down. I get 13-14 mpg. Iflyfishincruisecontrol

  3. We are currently in Florence, on the Southern Coast of Oregon. I have been pondering the idea of organizing a rally for next summer. Someone suggested I invite you to meet this summer and plan for next years event. The Oregon Coast is the #1 RV destination in the US. I am a member of Thousand Trails, a membership group. I paid $500 for a year membership including campgrounds in Oregon, Washington, California and one campground in British Columbia. Ten nights of stays at a $50 resort pays for the entire year of membership. I have already done so this year. Future stays are gravy. One can stay up to 21 days in any of their campgrounds, check them out. You do not have to be a member to stay at the campgrounds, just pay a typical space rent. The Thousand Trails Campground we are in is in the woods, pool, good wifi, minutes from town with it's quint Oregon coast downtown, great restaurants, and my bank, Three Rivers Casino! Anyone interested in joining us at one of the many Thousand Trails campgrounds on the Oregon Coast, preferably Florence, to discuss hosting a rally next summer? Iflyfishconmitoyamigos

    Summer Rally

    Good idea!! I am a member of Thousand Trails, currently in Florence, Oregon. Quint coastal town, great campground with pool, good wifi, minutes from town with great restaurants and my bank, Three Rivers Casino. Anyone interested in meeting here? There are Thousand Trail Campgrounds up and down the coast. This is our go to due to the proximity of amenities we enjoy. I purchased a Thousand Trails membership good in Oregon, Washington, California and one campground in British Columbia. I paid $500 for this. Ten nights in their campground and the annual membership is paid for! I have already used 10 nights so far so the rest of my stays are already paid for! You can stay up to 21 days in an individual park before you need to move on. You do not have to be a Thousand Trails member to use the park, just need to pay the nightly fee.

    Summer Rally

    I'll look into this. The rally I hosted was on the Oregon Coast at a State Park. Too busy this summer but will look at this for next summer. I found the Rally section under Search. Thanks

    Summer Rally

    I wonder if this group hold or support any rallies? Summer is here and it would be fun to meet folks from this group. When I had my Winnebago View I hosted a rally of 52 of those rigs on the Oregon Coast. We had a great time and learned a lot from each other. I don't know the traditions of this group re rallies.

    How to remove old paint from Sunrader

    Ditto with the mono-brow. I ordered the wheel with the most positive reviews on Amazon. I watched a YouTube video of the wheel in use and it looks like a no brainer. I will post pics. I hope others will chime in too. Thanks Iflyfishsanderinhand

    How to remove old paint from Sunrader

    Thank you again for your very helpful posts. You guys are a goddess send! I really appreciate the input. I had no idea this was a decal! I have not seen this on other Sunraders. I looked and found some more of the decals are also cracking. There are a number of these stripping wheels on the amazon site. Is there a specific one you would recommend? Again, thank you very much for the help. Thank you too WME.
  11. I am making progress on the Barkeeper/Zep upgrade to the exterior of Casper, my '87 Sunrader. I want to remove the crackled, aged paint between the two front windows. Any suggestions? Thanks, Iflyfishwithmytoyotabuddies

    Barkeep Zep Cleaning of Sunrader

    Thanks, it is not finished yet but making good progress. I have been using another silicone remover but think that with the method of using strips of terrycloth towels, soaked in remover and taped to the old silicone is working. Whew!! I will post more images as we proceed.

    Update on Silicone project. The silicone was very thick and incredibly hard. I came up with an alternative. Cut strips of towel, saturate with silicone remover and let set for many hours and it comes off!! Here are some pics. The project is not done yet but wanted to share the hack I came up with. See original images above to compare.
