RE: Roads Most Traveled

I used to highlight the route I was going to take on the atlas. So I could just look down at it while driving and see where a turn off to another road was coming up. I still use the highlighted atlas on the seat next to me while driving just to keep the GPS honest. I found from year to year traveling I never had to highlight the route on the map anymore because it was already there. For me once I find a nice route I take it over and over and over again. I'm too old for surprises now. I like the road I choose to my destination to be RV friendly period.

RE: slow-cooker ribs?

Check out Cook's Country/Test Kitchens web site. They have a TV show too. I watched them do a BBQ brisket in a crock pot when they were presented with the challenge to make it taste and look like it was completely cooked on a grill. The big thing they did was put an inverted aluminum pan on the bottom of the crock pot and then put the meat on top. The pan acted like a siphon and sucked all the liquids under the pan and the meat cooked like it was on a grill. It was amazing!

RE: RV Park Review deferred

So I posted a review of my recent experience to RV park review about the park I didn't receive my assigned site in and they deferred it saying that it was too much personal information included about my experience and I needed to rewrite it and sum down my bad experience. The good part I wrote about the park they liked. Now how do you sum down an experience and still get across what you are saying? Is it even worth it? Why write it if you can't tell the whole truth. Could the key word be "too much personal information"? Where you naming names in your review?

RE: cops stopping you

First of all if you are driving down the road THAT question is not on a cops list of what he can stop you for. Now....if you are "living on the streets illegally in the MH" that's a whole nuther story! If someone has complained about you parking illegally? Yup the cops going to ask you that question because he has received a complaint about you and you ARE on his streets he patrols! Full Time RV'ing and living on the streets in an RV are not the same.:W

RE: Keeping stuff from sliding on countertop?

NOTHING stays on the counters! You will come to this revelation soon enough when things start flying around and get broken when you hit a road that isn't as smooth as glass. Putty, chewing gum, velcro, etc all can come loose. The bed and the floor is the catch all for counter items when driving down the road. The coffee pot goes into the sink with the faucet pushed against it. 7 years and counting and still have the same pot! :C

RE: ETowing capacity on 2000 Tioga 23' Ford E350 V8

I've towed horse trailers with my 31 ft MH. That said the MOST important thing is the hitch. I spent well over $1,000 to have the 'correct' hitch put on my MH for hauling my 2 and 4 place trailers. Take your MH to a horse trailer dealership and get the lowdown on what we do to our MH's to make them horse worthy. The hitch the MH came with is most likely not going to hack it. You will struggle with pulling with an 8 cyl and be at or over your towing capacity when loaded up. Probably not what you wanted to hear but better now than later on down the road.

RE: Clean water

...hundreds of open sewer connections, sewer dumping spills, the well on the same property and, well, do the math of the % of incidence of contaminated water! :B Yep, that is why we read on these forums constantly about all the people getting sick at campgrounds. Why, it looks like an epidemic. What a minute, actually, I have never read about anyone getting sick from the water. That's cause they blame it on the picnic food or drinking too much beer! :B http://i57.tinypic.com/2ito7sx.gif

What type of camera did you use to get such a spectacular picture of something at night and 238,857 miles away? :B

RE: Sometimes, a dog is just a dog?

It's a tough decision any way you look at it. All my Great Danes had to be put down due to severe health issues or bloat early on in their years. Somehow that made the task a whole lot easier. When the time comes this will be my first one where their health and body is just fine but sadly their mind isn't. It will be tough. Take care, you will be in our prayers this week during this difficult time in your life.

RE: Kitchen Matches

Our "matches." http://r1.colemancanada.ca/ProductImages/Full/2000006804.jpg height=250 ditto x2 With the onset of these being sold everywhere and so inexpensive IMHO I don't ever see a need to have matches around anymore. As far as matches being safe stored in a MH where everything is jostled all over in a drawer? Who would of thought a 9 volt battery in a drawer would be dangerous? I watched a news report where a house burned down from a 9 volt battery.They showed that if you have a couple of battery's in a drawer or a baggie which most of us do all the time if they rub together they can create a fire. They showed how easy it happened......I went right to the drawer in my MH and took out all the loose 9 volts! http://www.kctv5.com/story/24594124/kctv5-exposes-the-9-volt-battery-fire-danger

RE: Sometimes, a dog is just a dog?

Jack was a rescue - we got him when he was almost a year old - rumor had it that he had run loose on the streets of Ann Arbor for months, and nobody had been able to catch him. *IF* "doggy dementia" is like Alzheimer's - and one goes back to their childhood? - it might explain the new aggression towards dogs and food and being "grabbed"? He does NOT want to be touched - not even brushed against. I'll be muzzling him before he ever leaves the car, to keep my Vet and her technicians safe. Thank you for posting about your dog. I am going thru my very first dog that has ever lived past 10 and it is all new to me all what he is going thru now at 14. He exhibits the same behavior as your dog. So I'm guessing it's just part of the aging process. He was an abused rescue also and the day I rescued him he chewed me up one arm and down the other! We came a long way since that day and he became my best buddy and we turned him around to the sweetest dog without incidence. But lately you can't just reach for him and pick him up or he will bite, "exactly the same thing he did when he was rescued". Reading your post I too see a lot of his behavior now is duplicating what he was like when he was in that abused home. Which we were so proud to have completely reversed. So maybe just like people with dementia who digress back to their younger years I am beginning to think dogs do too, also. The saddest thing just like your dog is he no longer wants to be around his best buddy. She just doesn't understand that at all. BUT, I now give him his space. He has given me 12 wonderful years. And I am still needed when dinner time comes around and of course THEN he wants to be by me. So I will savor this time just as I survived his first year teaching him that people really can be trusted. BTW. For us a half pill of Previcox every so often does WONDERFUL things for him. Sometimes it does way too much as he runs and bounces off the back of the couch. Just saying for us this pill eliminates all of his dementia frustrations and he is more comfortable and so for now we will run with that. thanks again for your post it's helped me understand that some of his behavior is just like other senior dogs aging. Your guy looks to be in very good condition for his age also. You must be doing something right with his food! :C

RE: Took this last night

THANK YOU! I stayed up all night to take a picture of it and dang if the clouds didn't come in and cover it. Hope you don't mind that I am going to copy it and save it so I didn't stay up in vain! :W :B

RE: Puzzled over battery boil over

You converter can boil over a battery in a heartbeat. Mine did. :( You need to check the output of the converter. And from my experience with 2 different RV mobile repair guys that both said my converter was ok. You have to leave the tester on 'after' it reaches the correct output. That's what the 3rd repair guy did and it skyrocketed off the charts. Which is why my battery was cooking. When we took it out one capacitor looked like someone shot it with a 22. Converter was still running but it affected 2 other things in my MH that no one thought to put two and two together to point to the converter. And like a three stooges movie every was 'convinced' the sulphur smell we got a whiff of every now and then was from a well I was parked next to. :S

RE: Chemicals for Black Tank

We've been using Potty Toddies for 18 years of fulltiming, in the same Carriage 5th wheel with the original tank, and have never had a problem. I drop one tap in the toilet after Dutch drains the black tank if the weather is 74 degrees or under. It it is above 75, I use two tablets. I buy them at Camping World. It is a no muss no fuss solution and what works for us. Hugs, Di X2! Not ever having traveled south in my MH the first summer I decided to stay in Florida I learned REAL quick about the "double dosage" chems for the black tank! :W:B

RE: First trip in the bank

Congrats on your first trip and good luck on many more! When adding Duct tape to your tool box......buy the white colored roll. Looks a whole lot better holding down the loose parts on your RV for the trip home! :W But then you wouldn't have that "Kentucky Chrome" look! ;) OMG! I never heard that one. That's a keeper! :B

RE: Clean water

We will taste the water after hooking up at the campground and if the water tastes good then we drink it. If it does taste funky then we turn the water off at the spigot and fill a container or two from the fresh water tank for drinking water and coffee. Then turn the spigot back on for flushing and washing. Water with dangerous bacteria levels in it does not taste any different than safe water. I full time so I am at different CQ's more than the average RV'er. AND my house had well water. So I am familiar with the pro's and con's of well water! CG's are NOT required to test their well water on a certain schedule as many campers seem to think. In general property with a well only gets tested when the property is sold. Unless a home owner chooses to have it tested for their own purpose. I tested my well water often and on several occasions had to disinfect it. And with housing your well has to be X amount of feet away from the septic field. >That said, CG property's have an average of 100 plus or minus campsites all with 'open' sewer hook ups running in conjunction with and very close proximity to water lines. The well is situated on the same property.< ^THAT scenario alone is why I do NOT ever drink water from CG hookups or when used to be filled into my holding tank. Holding tanks are just large petrie dishes. A minute amount of a bacteria, that your stomach normally could handle in the water when you put it in, will bloom in a holding tank to not safe levels. Add hundreds of open sewer connections, sewer dumping spills, the well on the same property and.....well...do the math of the % of incidence of contaminated water! :B
