RE: Ant invasion

Borax powder is a good defense at campgrounds, around your tires and cords. and it is non-toxic, so it is safe for the ecology(except for the ants).

RE: Ovenight in a Truck Stop

Just remember, don't make the truckers mad. If you have it, it came by truck. be grateful that these guys work hard to bring what YOU want and need to you. If you don't like it, take you big MotorHome and go get it yourself! Can you get a truckload of fresh vegtables coast to coast in three days before it all spoils? They do, EVERY day for YOU!

RE: Ant invasion

Check your power cord and/or water hose. They like to get inside via those. Next, look around tires. There are several non-poison powders that you can use around tires and such to keep them out. Ant-Terror bait will get rid of the ones that have come inside. Find their path and stop that, the and baits will get the rest that are already inside. You learned something, its a common problem. It may take a few days to get rid of all of them. If they can't get back to their nest, they will die eventually.

RE: Sanitizing city water inlet

I do make a point of letting the water tap run for a bit before attaching my hose, then let a bit more flush through the hose before attaching to inlet. Some of those water systems do build up a bunch of crud in the lines. Most city water systems have enough clorine to sterlize the lines, but flushing out the water that has been sitting for a while is a good idea. Check with the campground management when you check in is not a bad idea either.

RE: Sanitizing city water inlet

If a little dirt hasn't killed me yet, I don't worry about it. My water inlet is in the same bin as the sewer stuff, but I try to keep everything separate. When not in use, I connect the ends of my fresh water hose attached together to keep bugs and stuff out.

RE: Tri-Mark Paddle Latch failing on outside entrance door

RE: Tri-Mark Paddle Latch failing on outside entrance door

Try the TriMark website. Is there a model number on it?? if not, they have good pictures to let you identify. You can order whatever from then also, but they are high! You can talk to their customer service, they were very nice when I called. Mine is a different model, and I was able to get it from an rv parts and service place, whthout having to pay the shipping charges. Of course, part of the shipping was included in the dealer mark-up, but was still somewhat better than having it shipped.

Another LED lighting upgrade.

As there have been a number of threads about using LED strips recently, I am posting these pictures of one of our upgrades using a left-over strip of the white LED lights. Power is from the bedside lamp, with a switch and a short wire added. Small wire runs up the wall from lamp to shelf, and is hidden with a short strip of white tape. We really like this because it is soft light, that can be left on when we are away with no fear of overheating. Note: wire on right side hanging over is for my CPAP that sits on the shelf. Has nothing to do with lights. Edit by NEJ http://i.imgur.com/fDlIP5Pl.jpg

RE: handicap rv parking

We see many campgrounds with handicapped sites, usually close to the restroom and some are either concrete or paved for handicap transport purposes. Although we have a handicap tag, we try to use these sites as a last resort, as there are many that need them more than we do. Also, they are usually closer to the restrooms, which is usually a higher traffic area.

RE: user name and password

Don't know about here, but many sites are removing the "remember password" options. It did make things a lot easier, but with the forum open to hacking, it is probably a good idea to get rid of that option.

RE: Firearms in RV's

Don't ask, don't tell. Just shoot the SOB, but do a good job of it. The trials are shorter.

RE: RV Toilete paper

You are. We use the same thing we have at home.

RE: Leaking kitchen faucet

Depending on the brand, you may be able to get a repair kit that usually contains a tool to disassemble, and all the washers and o-rings needed. Again, depending on the type faucet, you may just need the o-rings to seal around the handle and spout. HD, Lowes, Maynards, just about any of them carry the repair kits. Lots cheaper and much eaiser than replacing the whole thing. And, its DIY.
