RE: Address of beginning (Nashville) of Natchez Trace

We like Montgomery Bell SP also. However, especially as you will be coming in from that side, DO NOT TRY TO TAKE THE BACK ENTRANCE OFF HGW 47 INTO THE PARK!!! go to the main entrance over on HGW 70 only! The back way will lead you to a very narrow surprise, with no way to back out!! Now ask how I know!!! There is a SAMS club on Old Hickory blvd, but I would be very uncomfortable staying at any of the parking lots in that area. Montgomery Bell, or something off the Dixon, TN exit. would be much better. There is a 24-hour Walmart there, and a Cracker barrel there, and several other places.

RE: Dead flies in Fantastic Fans

Just pop out the screens, then clean and discard the flies. While the screen is off, carefull clean the blades, top and bottom, with a mild cleaner, diluted dish soap works well. after cleaning, pop the screens back in, and realize how much quieter the fan runs. If you don't have pop-out screens, remove edge screws to remove. Buy pop-outs as soon as possible.

RE: converting a Sprinter with Ikea "stuff"

I use IKEA LED lights in our Motor home. That is a good idea that you have, and will probably work, as IKEA's speciality is tiny homes and spaces. But be aware that much of their stuff is make of HEAVY fiberboard, whereas most RV stuff is built and designed to be lightweight. Things like hollow walls, cabinet floors that are thin panels with cardboard stiffners between, and other such. So just think light, because weight builds up very quickly.

RE: What fluids to service in used RV?

with less than 10k, I wouldn't touch changing anything, other than the engine oil and filter(UNLESS I HAD REASON TO). Maybe the air filter if it needs it. Get you mechanic to check the others, and unless they are low or contaminated, they should be good for at least 50k or more. In newer engines, unless there is a good reason, most fluids are good for over 100K. Other lubricants just don't go bad from time only. things to look out for are overheating, water getting into the engine and transmission, and brake overheating or leakage.

RE: Power Cord Connection

Navy would know better. Just find a Marine and show him what you wanted to do.

That was Navy, wasn't it??

RE: Power Cord Connection

Did it ever occur to turn the switch off before changing a light bulb?? There are a LOT of unnecessary regulations that are to legally protect vendors and manufacturers from those who don't understand how to take care of themselves. Did anyone ever tell you not to stick your finger into a light socket?? Or why?

RE: Power Cord Connection

Best thing is to always remember to make sure the breaker is off before plugging in or out. Then it makes no difference. If power is own when you plug into the power station, and your hand slips, you can make contact with a live terminal. You won't do it but once.

RE: Question about slide seal

It looks like it is right. The seal should "flip" whenever the slie is extended or retracted, but as they get older and the seal gets stiffer, sometimes they do and sometimes they don't. Some people recommend putting a strip of step tread material on the side of the slide to help flip the seal. I usually just don't worry about it, but if we are going to be in the same place for a while, I will usually go around and flip ours if necessary.

RE: Portable Induction Cooktops

With our induction cookplate, and a convection microwave, we rarely use the gas cooktop any more.

RE: I guess I don't understand Good Sam

Mostly a lot of junk mail for insurance and RA. Discounts at CW mean you still pay more for stuff than you would elsewhere. And AARP or AAA get the same campground discounts.

RE: North of LA to San Diego

Sorry, got posted twice.

RE: North of LA to San Diego

At least the motorhomes have kitchens and bathrooms.. Really becomes important for diabetic old farts stuck in traffic. Have been known to swap drivers in the middle of stop and go traffic jams. Cram it into park, jump and run.

RE: RV Thermostat that can be Operated by Iphone App

Look at Lowes or Home Depot, but I don't know about the two zone.

RE: RV Thermostat that can be Operated by Iphone App

Not unless you have a internet router in your RV connected to a 7-24 cable or wireless internet.

RE: How about a Forum for all the California Haters?

Threads like this are why I check the forum every day. The entertainment is great. Much better that all the trash talk on put out by the news media.

RE: How about a Forum for all the California Haters?

The state itself is wonderful. And just like any other state, there just a few people that make the entire place look like a sinkhole. Most of the rest are wonderful people also, and a few are just weird, but not necessarily bad. Besides,if it wasn't for California and immigrant workers, the rest of us would probably starve.
