RE: Need a small 12VDC heater

Go to a Loves or Flying J and find the truckers section inside the store. It is usually way in the back and out of the way. Close to where the truckers check in etc. THAT is where you will find a plethora of good 12v DC heaters, etc. Once I found the truckers sections of stuff for sale I no longer buy the cheaper and usually poor quality items sold for RV's.

RE: Full Time, Selling Everything

Whatever you do, do NOT rent your house. You will loose any value you have in it by renting it. You won't even be in town to watch over the renters. Been there done that. Renters wreck homes. AND Do not leave anything behind in a storage unit. I did and I am still paying for it several year later. :( That's my http://i53.tinypic.com/25thr7r.gif about preparing for full-time RV'ing from experience. :C

RE: Portable Induction Cooktops

Yup you can use it but just like the other appliances in an RV you can NOT have any 2 on at the same time. Keep in mind that includes your AC. You'd have to turn off the AC when you use the cooktop if you have a 30 amp RV. What I do is hook up my small cooking appliances outside to the shore station 110 outlet. That way I can run my AC in the MH at the same time. I picked up a real nice lite weight folding folds completely flat, aluminum table from walmart. I place that by the shore station to put my electrical cooking pots etc. and that is where all my cooking appliances are used and plugged into the 110 outlet. http://ll-us-i5.wal.co/dfw/dce07b8c-fd1f/k2-_1da4ee50-9fba-404a-b0ec-f12ddd35412a.v1.jpg-0b4f760abbce3bc6275c0fea7873b4c79769a8a1-optim-225x225.jpg height=225

RE: bathroom sink

I just de-winterized fifthwheel. I opened kitchen sink air came out then water, shower same, toliet same, then bathroom sink same, except water suddenly stopped and some more air then nothing. Now no air or water comes out of bathroom sink, can't find any leaks. Is there such a thing as an air lock preventing water to flow to sink. I am hooked up to shore water. Take the aireater off the faucet and clean the screen. There is most likely Stuff in the screen. And yes it will prevent any water from coming out! I had a new pump put in and when I turned on the faucets NONE of them worked!!! Right away everyone was pointing to the installation. Turned out every faucet screen and been plugged with real small particles of sugar sand. Yup it filled up every hole in that tiny screen and stopped the water completely.

RE: Wisconsin Adventure...

Did you 'call' any of them? Ya their websites will state when they open for spring etc. but most stay open all year. Almost all of the CG's are open but the water is not turned on. You will have electric and dump hookup. Most have bathrooms that are heated so they leave the water on in them. you can shower there. It's best just to pull in these CG's and they will let you stay. If you call they'll say they are not open. Call Coachman's in Lake Geneva. Small but nice and Lake Geneva is just down from it. If you look it up on line it will look like a mobile home park. But there is a section in the middle that is for RV campers. I stayed there every summer when I was traveling! :C

RE: Our Dog Ate Our GPS

http://i739.photobucket.com/albums/xx38/dgorton/tomtom_zpsia581yhf.jpg height=300 OMG! Look at all the teeth marks around the edge. She really wanted to kill it didn't she. :B I'll just add a REAL interesting fact about GPS's. Parked in a CG, I had my GPS on the dash turned off and in the middle of the night woke up to and heard what seemed like a person was standing right in the middle of my MH talking! :E Took me a couple of days to find out that a fellow camper would walk around late at night with a bluetooth stuck in his ear talking on his phone. When he passed my MH....... My GPS would pick it up and TURN ON! Maybe your GPS went off and your dog thought it was an intruder and killed him for you. :W

RE: New Step Light

I ditched all the 'wired' led lights. They make SO many battery and solar powered operated stick up led's its unbelievable. Many of them motion detectors. They have come a long way on the power of these lights and how much they will light up. IMHO take a walk down the led isle at Lowes before you start running wires and drilling holes. :W

RE: Who Are WE RV'ers Really?

Honestly, your posts come off as smug and condescending with a know-it-all attitude, and then you wonder why people respond the way they do. I shun all labels and consider us all RVers regardless of why we're RVing. Our commonality is found in the fact that, regardless of reason, we're using recreational vehicles. The overwhelming majority of my interactions with fellow RVers are positive because of that.I've read part of the threads started by the OP and totally agree about the smug and condescending attitude. Must have to do with his extensive abilities, information which he isn't too shy to share...frequently. Mostly without being asked. X2

RE: RV Parks You Love Then You Hate Them You Need Them

......It seems that you put a lot of thought into that. I think there are two kind of parks, the ones we might go back to and the ones we won't. X10! :C

RE: How to stop neighboring campers from

A couple of strategically placed lawn chairs and/or cooler usually deters the campsite crosser's.

RE: SUV tow vehicle

I am thinking about a 2017 GMC Yukon XL Denali it has a 6.2l V-8 with a tow capacity of 8,200lbs. My travel trailer is just under 10,000lbs. What is the general consensus of the SUV pulling my camper? What happens if I was to do this combo? Will I have a real issue? NO

RE: Advise on used, lived in camper.

The first thing I would ask or if it is still parked where they lived in it is......""did they leave the black tank valve open during the time they lived in it""? If they 'did' leave the black tank valve open, there will be a mountain of poop in the black tank. Waste needs water to move. No water and it just sits in the bottom of the black tank. And in this case a full year of poop sitting on the bottom of the tank. Correct way is to leave valve closed and let tank fill up and then dump as needed. You can leave the sewer hose attached to it but CLOSE the valve. Just saying check it out. Good luck I hope you find just the right RV for your needs! :C

RE: Broke down in Amarillo

thanks for the replies. Wheel bearing is what I was thinking too. I did not bring enough tools to do that type of job unfortunately. We called one mobile techs emergency number last night when we rolled in, Derrels repair, but they have not called back. I did find a workhorse chassis service center in town so I will head that way in the morning and see if they can get someone to come to the KOA or I will have to have it towed. Go to the KOA office and ask who they use for RV Mobile Repair first! Most repair shops will insist you tow it in. RV Mobile Repair will come out to your site at the KOA AND.....will be a WHOLE LOT less expensive. I have ALL my repairs and maintenance done by local RV Mobile Repair where ever I am parked. Good Luck

RE: RvParky and Cracker Barrel

......My daughter stayed in that one two nights ago & was happy with the 'accommodations'. On her way from visiting me to her launch point to Alaska. Hi avan! How's the new MH and being back on the road going? It's real good to see you decide to come back to RV'ing! Hope all is well with your new adventures, God Bless. :C

RE: Woodalls access is gone - Another Back Door???

This is a test to see if Open Office will let me cut/paste into a thread on RV.net Edit: Seems like it worked fine for me using Open Office for my word processor. I wonder if it could be something in your system. I am using Windows 10 and Firefox 52.0. You can use one of these alternate portals to the site. Trailer Life portal >>>> Good Sam Club portal >>>> Looks to me like the Woodalls site defaults to the Good Sam site now as maybe all the others also. Barney One thing that's REAL nice, and I like a lot, is this link above that you posted leads to a portal that does NOT have that dorky GS logo looming at you on it!! I'll be using this one from now on! :B

RE: To Slide or Not

One thing to look for if you don't want slides is what they call a "split bathroom". It opens up the coach like nobody's business!! I am always getting comments from fellow RV'ers and 'many' with big Class A's how much room my MH has. Most coaches that have the side bathroom, the bathroom is so small you can't move AND it creates a long dark hallway in the coach or in some a complete wall with the hallway on the side. Making the front of the coach enclosed and small even on a 40 footer!!. On the split bath there is a pocket door from the kitchen to bath and a folding door from bath to bedroom for privacy. When these 2 are open it really creates a big open feel from the front all the way to the back of the coach AND all the light that comes into it. Not to mention all the room in the bathroom area!! :)

RE: opportunity to purchase

I have the opportunity to purchase a wrecked and totaled popup real cheap.the wreck bent the frame at the tongue and the whole back side of the Coleman popup has been destroyed. you can see into the PU. RUN, don't walk away from this one! It will cost WAAAY more than $500 to fix it even if it could be fixed. AND, anything with a bent frame is nothing more than a piece of junk that can not be restored to correct and it needs to go to the junk yard. Which is the reason the insurance company totaled it. The owner got paid from the insurance company and you want to give him more money for his totaled RV.? I hope he is not your friend trying to put the screws to you! :W There are plenty of older used fixer uppers out there for sale that your money would be better spent on. Keep looking you will find one that fits your budget. :C
