RE: Dog? Poop - or NOT

If you have a dog, don't worry about deer poop. The dogs love it!

RE: Adding 12V Receptacles

I have a dedicated 12v outlet added to the base of the bed just for my CPAP. Only problem is that if AC power goes off during the night, the CPAP still runs fine, and I don't wake up.

RE: Another negative recommendation of an RV Park

If you want to stay there, and have a few others to enjoy the facilities, the campsite only charges $5 per extra person staying. Just have them register with you, and sleep on a pallet. As visitors, the charge is $10 overnight, but a registered person is only $5.

RE: Another negative recommendation of an RV Park

Although I have not encountered this problem, as we very seldom have visitors, I have seen a number of occasions that $5 per person could be justified. Cases where a lot of visitors come to party with a camper, make lots of noise, use all the facilities, and otherwise make it difficult for other campers to enjoy the park. The park management may have good reason for the additional per person charge.

RE: Where to buy good semi-cheap ratchet socket set in USA?

Get a small toolbox, and a couple of socket holder bars. These have spring holdersfor a whole set of sockes, and help keep then from getting lost.

RE: Satellite reception...... Help !!

Sounds like the connection between the outside connection and the one inside is messed up. These tend to be mislabeled a lot of times. make sure that the cable you are connected to inside is actually the one connected to the ourside port marked Satellite.

RE: Safety for doors

Most important is where you park it.

RE: What do you have in your tool box

One of the best is a 3 pound drill hammer or ball-peen hammer. of course, duct tape, and WD-40.

RE: deionized water versus distilled water

On most CPAPs you can select if the water is heated or not. If you need more humidity, then the water is warmed a bit, which makes it evaporate faster.

RE: deionized water versus distilled water

Having used a CPAP for over 20 years, both with and without huidifier, at home and in RV, I really can't see any reason why it used more tap water than distilled water. Could have been temperature, relative humidity, room temperature, or some other factor. Distillation or ionazation has no effect on the evaporation effects of water. The main reason not to use tap water is the chlorine used to purify it in the city water supply. in some cased(places) the tap water is so loaded you cannot breathe the air that passes over it. Also, if the tapwater is very hard, or has a lot of minerals, they will build up in your CPAP tank and are difficult to get rid of. As the evaporation has already been done to distilled water, it avoids the problem. As to the evaporation thing, if the tap water contained some high percentage of some other volitile liquid, that could account for a part of the difference, but the additional vapors would make it obvious that the water was bad.

RE: Co detector

Have had other vehicles running nearby set one off. Nearby generators, vehicles, especially with exhaust fan running. Older ones get to where they go off with the slightest reason. If it keeps doing it, replace it.

RE: deionized water versus distilled water

Not a lot of difference, distilled water comes from a still, which boils water tnto steam, then condenses it back. This removed all the product which do not boil , but it is possible for some vapors to be condensed along with th water. Deionized water is processed through a series of mechanical and chemical filters, which electronically and chemically remove everything except pure H2O. It is more difficult to find, as it is a bit more difficult to produce. However, really deionized water is almost a perfect insulator, and WILL NOT conduct electricity at all. Having said that, note that ANY impurities added to the water will destroy the insulation properties, and make it an almost perfect conductor. For batteries, if you can get it, deionized water is the better choice, but most folks use distilled instead. There should be no noticible difference.

RE: Help, please? 1995 Gulfstream Conquest clean up

We got out Memory foam mattress from Walmart, it has two layers, one denser than the other. We added a 2" memory foam topper to it, just for more support. Very comfortable, yet firm with good support which helps both of out backs. The only thing I found out about is the pillow to use. As I sleep on my side, the mattress is very compressed under my shoulder, more so than a interspring mattress, so the right pillow to properly support my head and neck is important. Wrong pillow, and my neck hurts the next day.

RE: Does antennea need to be digital???

Thanks to the techs for the broadcast definitions. While not being an expert, 60+ years around radios and electronics, has left me with a general idea about how it works, your posts have confirmed my ideas, so it is nice to know I am not as stupid as I sometimes think. Meanwhile, my Sensar IV batwing works great to pick up OTA pictures, whatever they are. Trees cut down on the signals, even within 5 miles of a transmitter. Wind and rain in the trees cause havoc with the signal. I am convinced that most of it is magic anyway, and all I need is a good wizard.

RE: Help, please? 1995 Gulfstream Conquest clean up

Throw away the cushions, and make new ones! We replaced our mattress with memory foam, and have really liked it. We have a 4" mattress, with another 2" pad on top for a total of 6" on a plywood base and it works fine. Also, it can be cut to fit the shorter length of most RV beds. Have a good RV tech check out everything mechanical, stove, water heater, and furnace. Look at wiring for damage also.

RE: Camping world lying? Outrageous response Las vegas

Call Thor in Elkhart, and ask about another service provider in your area. You have joined the large group of those who learned about Camping World Service the hard way. Thankfully, lots of us paid attention and did not even consider Camping World service or vehicle sales. Camping World is only good to browse the store and pick up small items that you can't get at Walmart. BTW, Camping world service used to be some of the best, back Before Marcus!

RE: Does antennea need to be digital???

OK, digital and analog broadcast signals are different. Show us a waveform diagram. Is the broadcast signal actually on or off depending on the digital bit?? Back in the beginning, Radio was actually digital, in that the signal was actually on or off. Then it became a solid on signal, modulated with the on-off code. The actual carrier was there all the time. Is the digital TV carrier there all the time?? What type of carrier does digital use??

RE: Using a small Inverter

I have and use a 400 watt inverter plugged into a power outlet to power my laptop, and anything else that needs a small amount of AC power. For most of these applications, the non-sine power is OK, as it goes into a adapter that converts back to dc anyway. If your inverter has a plug for a power outlet(cigarette lighter). the best choice is to install a GOOD, truck type power outlet wigh plenty of wiring capacity and a fuse. Then just plug in the inverter and do whatever. in addition, you can plug in a USB adapter to power and charge things like phones, tablets, and any USB device. I usually keep my phone and tablets plugged in most of the time.

RE: A and E awning

I like the manual awnings best because I can stake it down when staying for a while, without worrying about it trying to roll itself up. Also, I can move the lower legs out to the ground, so they are out of the way and I don't hit myself in the head as much.

RE: Anyone Still Use Juno Email

Actually, I favor public executions on the city square every Saturday morning. Draws a lot of business for stores downtown, and get rid of a lot of trash. Might not cut down on crime, but gets rid of a lot of criminals. Lawyers and protestors get to go first.
