RE: Prescription medications 90 day rule: What to do?

If you are going to Yuma and crossing into Algodones; don't count on getting any prescription drugs that are not highly used. They only seem to carry the every day medications all us old people use. Wife uses a formulation drug for her diabetes which none of the pharmacies carry.

RE: Flat towing 2003 Ford Explorer sport trac

The tow kit is nothing more than an LED light, a plug, a template for mounting the gizmo, and the safety stickers. Basically the dealer plugs the Neutral Tow Kit into a socket under the dashboard, and then they ”flash” the vehicle’s computer to tell the 4 wheel drive transfer case to shift into neutral when you step on the brake pedal and push the 4×4 button, with the transmission in neutral.

RE: !*&%^$#@! Awning Will Not Unroll All the Way

X3 on broken spring. If you can't get it replaced before you leave make sure you have it secured in such a way that it can't fly open.

RE: Water shut-off switch for refrigerator

Mine is also a manual valve. I would suspect the location depends a lot on the model of your RV. My frig is in the slide and, the water shutoff is located inside the lower outside access panel.

RE: Mirror slid off wall

Unless you think you might want to remove it at some time, I would place a couple of temporary nails at the bottom edge to hold it up then use a large quantity of liquid nail on the wall and press it into it. remove nails after glue dries and fill holes if visible.

RE: Power Gear Leveling System won't reset

You might try disconnecting the batteries for about 10 minutes then reconnect and test.

RE: Booze in the RV... Legal?

In order to relieve your mind I will be more than happy to drop by and relieve you of any extra alcohol. I promise not to drive until I sober up no matter how long it takes.

RE: Gutter for Sewer Hose

This is the style I prefer but as you see the cheapest price is 6.20 per foot so over 180.00 for 30' I have dual holding tanks one in front and one in rear so I figure I'll need at least 25' https://www.google.com/shopping/product/4501226234176950130?q=rain+gutters&biw=1366&bih=638&dpr=1&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiU1bjujbTVAhWCOj4KHbEJDuEQ8wIIngMwCw Read the specs again. Shows in fine print 10 foot for the $6.20 price

RE: Gutter for Sewer Hose

This is what I am using Plastic Gutter $7.98 for 10 feet. For support only of the normal 3 inch sewer hose. If you are looking to make a solid connection use PVC sewer pipe $10.26 for 10 feet then adapt it down to 3 inch at the RV connection.

RE: Control your expectations!

Anyone need an old dwell/tach? How about a timing light? I'll throw in a carburetor adjusting tool and a brake adjust tool. Not sure why I still carry them in my tool box.

RE: Coos Bay, Oregon - any long term camp sites?

RE: Falling apart

Buy a box of wooden matches and a bottle of glue. Remove the screw, swab a match stick with glue,stuff it in the hole and break it off flush. After the glue dries re install the screw with a dab of glue on it. No problem; only several thousand more screws to go. Think I am on my second box of matches now.

RE: Hwy 5 east to Susanville & south to Reno.

No problems except for the downhill into Susanville which is a little steep. Just be cautious and slow down everything is good.

RE: Arizona 88 - Apache Junction to Globe

Not recommended for large vehicles! If you have not seen it check this out Apache Trail Make the loop as a day trip in your truck then take 60 when you move. The first 14 miles from Apache Junction are paved and there is even a campground at Tortilla Flat. After that the road turns to gravel and some of it is a very steep down hill section.

RE: Snowbirding without an RV

Not too sure about finding a forum any better than this. I would suggest searching on Craig's list in Yuma for rentals. After a few years of renting spots we finally purchased a private lot with a park model trailer on it but there are plenty of rentals available.

If you have an outside shower, make sure it is turned off at the faucets. The hot and cold will mix if it is only turned off at the head.

RE: Salem area or Pahrump?

Salem will be 47 average and rain. Pahrump will be cold with some snow. We are 13 miles from Salem and now leave for Arizona every winter. If I could not find someplace better than Pahrump I would stay home.
