RE: 50% Discount in Federal Parks could Disappear!

Some of us seniors in a 20K motorhome, living on fixed income Social security that we worked and paid into for 40+ years will take any kind of discount we can get. Most of the time the discounts are the only way we can get away from all the yuppies. The ones in the 250K+ class As usually don't bother with the discount campgrounds we have to use and enjoy. Keep going with the kids and a tent, you are making some of the best memories you will ever have! Enjoy it while you can, when all the campgrounds and public areas are sold to the highest bidder, and/or run by private concessionairs, none of us will have anything we can afford. Only for the rich and famous.

RE: Changing degrees c to degrees f

After reading your original post, I realized that you said you don't have steering wheel controls. Does that mean that the gauges have the numbers and KPH markings painted on? From what I read in the book, that may not be an option to change. Sorry.

RE: Changing degrees c to degrees f

It is set in the settings on your digital readout. Here is a link to the owners manual with details on how to set it. Good Luck, and always remember, when all else fails, RTFM! link to manual

RE: Changing degrees c to degrees f

Check your owners manual. There is probably a set-up feature to change the reading. Funny thing, our HHR is the same way. it has numbers, and a small light that indicates MPH or KPH. it can be changed as one of the setup options. if I am moving when I change it, the speedo needle will jump from one value to another. The numbers don't change, just where the needle points. The Temperature readings and odometer readings change at the same time. real easy to change, just read the book. BTW, don't bother asking the mechanics at the dealer, they probably don't know either.

RE: No RV'er wave?

Its not that folks are not friendly, but that it is very difficult to see the other driver, even if they do wave. I wave a lot, especially if we are on two lane roads where we can be seen. Get a lot of waves back too. Also, most of us drive with both hands on the wheel, especially when expecting a wind surge from the oncoming vehicle.

RE: Dash Cams

Just remember, the cams are great evidence in court if you are the injured party and need proof of what happened. Problem is, if you have one that is recording something that is or could have been your fault, the other side can and will use it against you. They can demand that the video be made available as evidence. Solution is to have it mounted so that it can be removed quickly, and hidden from view.

RE: Campground Jackson, TN

This campground is up at Bristol, TN., and has been voted best in Tennessee several times. And, it is PassPort America, except during holidays and Race Week. Have been there several times and fully recommend it.

RE: BOTH roof AC units running on a 20 amp power source?

Yes, Blunt, and the intent was to be so. Overloading your circuits can be very dangerous, and expensive. Carefully find out exactly what is going on, and especially watch for overheating on wires cords and pluge as you do so. And yes, runing both on a 20A circuit is possible, especially if they do not start at the same time. Generally the ratings are overstated, so the actual draw can only be determined by accurate measurement. And, most 20A circuits will take a bit of overload for a while. I have had both ACs running on a 30A circuit, but even with 30A breakers and plugs, they will begin to show a lot of heat, especially at the plugs, due to higher resistance there. Now, I do know that it will work, but probably is not a good idea to depend on.

RE: Wi-Fi Refund

If it is a free service, then they should refund you exactly what you paid for it.

RE: ? Anode "Nut" Question -- Anti-Freeze 'Stuff"?

Use lots of teflon and only tighten until it doesn't leak. Does'nt really have to be that tight.

RE: BOTH roof AC units running on a 20 amp power source?

Leave it on for a while and see what burns up first.

RE: Volunteer.gov

Its the weekend, they are likely messing around with it. Government worrkers have weekends off and don't need it, , so that's the time to try and fix things that don't work. Just give them twice as long and maybe it will be back up by Monday.

RE: Campground Jackson, TN

The best place around here is Parkers Crossroads campground at exit 108, Lexington. Exactly halfway betweem nashville and Memphis. Older KOA campground returned to private ownership. New restrooms and showers built last year, Many other new improvements. Nice folks, and RV repair available if necessary. Tell them we sent you. Another goodplace is Natchez Trace State Park. Nice big RV campground, Resturant closeby at the Lodge. Reasonable rates with full hookups at every site. A bit harder to get to from the Interstate, (twisty road), but very nice campground. If you do need to go to Jackson, its about 30 miles, however there is a Walmart in Lexington. Shiloh Battlefield memorial in about 30 miles south. Parkers Crossroads Memorial and visitor Center is at exit 108.

RE: Dash Cams

Lots of truck drivers have them. Ask around at a nearby truck stop.

RE: Slideshow software

I think that the media player will be the best idea for what I want. Now just to fine one cheap that will do what I need.

Slideshow software

Other than it will be used in the RV, this is a tech question only, I want to use our front LED tv to display a slideshow of pictures, just like we do on a digital picture frame. Some TVs have that feature built i, but ours doesn't, but I can use a laptop to drive it. What are some of the best software products to use for this? What other solutions might be available?? Thanks Noel

RE: Body Roll

Carefully check all of the above, as any one could be a culprit on that age rig. Shocks especially. For me, in our second small "A" gasser, some roll is normal. I do find that 70 is a bit fast for it, and stability seems to be a lot less when we pass 65. (speed and age). The important thing is sway that affects your steering, causing swerving side to side. We do have some roll, but it does not effect steering or tracking, such as when being passed. I do get a lot of bother from gusty sidewinds, but have learned what to expect and what to watch out for.

RE: Rear view system only works in reverse now....

Mine doesn't have a reverse only button, but has inputs for two cameras, with a switch to select. After knocking the camera plug out by accident, I found that one of the inputs works ONLY if the coach is NOT in reverse!! The other works like it always did, all the time. Not a problem, just weird!
