RE: RV insurance

We are newbies and have to buy 'RV insurance'. Does anyone have experience with Nationwide Insurance? Their quote was $300. cheaper then the next cheapest (progressive) and the rest were all higher by a bit then Progressive. Coverage was almost identical and differences with minor. Nationwide has been around a long time (and Peyton Manning likes them) but $300 cheaper makes me nervous. Are you aware that whatever insurance you have now on your personal vehicles can also insure your RV? Plus by adding your RV to your current insurance you will receive a multiple vehicle discount. Which will most likely net you a lower rate that going out and using a different company for just the RV. Just some info in case you didn't know this. :C

RE: No longer number one

After three years of being the number one ranked golden retriever in NADAC agility, Breeze was the second highest scoring golden in 2015. Not bad for a girl who turns 10 at the end of this month. She’s lost a step or two, but so have I. She’s still having fun, so she’ll continue to compete. Our male, Jinks, was third this year, but he’ll rank higher that Breeze next year. At the NADAC North American Championships for 2015, Breeze finished seventh in her division, behind 4 border collies and three Australian shepherds. (In 2013 she was fourth behind 3 border collies - We only compete in the championships in the odd-number years, when they are held in the east.) In both years, she was the highest scoring sporting dog in all division.It’s been quite a run and I’m going to enjoy her “golden” years. Tom http://i.imgur.com/CgmyXEM.jpg BIG BIG congrats. That is ONE big accomplishment! http://smileyjungle.com/smilies/celebrate13.gif You sure don't see many Golden's winning agility like that!! And at 10 years young! How are 'your' knees holding out?! :W

Thank you for that explanation and link.

RE: Virginia CCW Heads Up

When I became a full timer I went to apply for one and after talking to the instructor and being informed of all the different laws each state had about carrying and/or just having guns in the MH I opted for not doing it. How could one possibliy be up to date about the regulations for each and every state they traveled thru? Just saying. I didn't want to have to sit on the computer researching the next state I was about to enter to see if I would be legal on that day. The OP's post shows just that.

RE: Re keying an RV

I took off all my 751 locking mechanisms and took them down the street to a locksmith. He changed them all for $6 each. I re-installed them and there we have it. wow. I didn't know those could be rekeyed. Thanks for that tip. :C

RE: Oil Change - Brandon, FL Area

Anyone know of a place in/near Brandon with bay large enough for a 33 foot MH? Yup. Your CG site. Ask the CG manager who they use for RV mobile repair. I have all my maintenance done while I am at a CG using mobile repair. Florida has some of the best RV Mobile Repair around.

RE: RVs are kitty homes with chauffeurs and butlers

Cats should be crated in a moving vehicle. Just because a horror story has not happened to you doesn't mean it won't. I just shudder every time I see a pet on the dash of a moving RV. :(

RE: Help with outdoor odor?

BEFORE you use odoban take a whiff of it first! It is a POWERFUL smell that does NOT ever go away. Your RV will smell like the local dog pound. IMHO I would never use that stuff anywhere near or in my home or RV. There is all different types of lime but most of them are caustic and should NOT be used around pets.http://homeguides.sfgate.com/hydrated-lime-hurt-animals-87490.html I travel with four dogs and there is never any smells. I use a patio mat where they go. It is picked up immediately. And I spray down the mat often with dawn soap and water. No smells. In your case the poop, even though you are picking it up, there are still parts of it on the blades of grass and down in the grass and over time that is most likely where the smell is coming from.

RE: Possible anal sac removal

x2 Too many nerves involved. Seen too many not good outcomes from surgery for me to ever do it. Seems a sad outcome for the dog to be incontinent when all that is needed is to drain a plugged anal sac periodically. Vets seem to have the knack for correct quick gland expressing. IMHO I would pay a vet to do it when necessary and/or have them show you the 'correct' way to do it. Done correctly it's fast and less uncomfortable for the dog and it gets it all out.

RE: Got a price on an install comments...

Price is in ballpark. I paid around $3,000 for parts and labor to install '6 years ago'. Price also included a set of 3 locking hitch pins, coiled safety cables and custom fitted cover for the tow bar. IMHO I would NOT do it myself. A dealership that has all the right tools and has installed thousands of them versus me in my garage? Dealership install hands down. Perfect example was the base plate ordered for my toad per specs did not fit. THEY knew what to do next. I would have been fumbling around trying to figure out what to do, they had seen it before and knew what base plate for another car would fit my toad. I.E. The Tracker syndrome changes from Geo to Tracker to Chevy Tracker to Suzuki to Suzuki Sidekick all within a couple of production runs. :R Glad it was at an RV dealership where they handled all the problems. All I had to do was just pick it up all done and headed out on my first RV trip with a toad! :C

RE: Good Sam Roadside Assistance Cost Increase

? I received a renewal notice for $139 platinum. I don't need to renew yet as I still have better than a year on my card. Read the small print! The fact that they sent you a 'renewal' notice and you are NOT even due for renewal is the red flag of their consistent bad faith advertising tactics. I got a renewal notice with a low rate printed on it. Time came for me to renew and the actual price was double that. I presented the renewal notice and they said : "Oh that rate is for NEW members Only". 1. WHY send a current member a rate for new members only??? 2.That's the thanks I get for being a member for years and years.....give the new member the discount rate.:R You'd think after all these years of ticking members off they'd stop this practice of sending fraudulent renewal notices out.

RE: Favorite appetizers for potlucks?

If you are looking really quick and easy: Round Sour Dough bread loaf, hollowed out and filled with spinach dip with bread removed from middle placed around outside plate edge or in a separate bowl, to use with dip. Quick, easy, attractive and very tasty. (if you want to not make your own buy premade Spinach dip). X10! I make this all the time when out RV'ing and it NEVER fails to impress! Yet it is SO easy and no mess in the MH. :C Publix has the best tasting and hearty crust round Sour Dough bread and Rye Bread rounds for this. And they also carry the BEST spinach/artichoke/cheese dip in little plastic containers that fit just right into the hole you make in the bread! I also add those corn chips shaped like little scoops around the bread too.

RE: New Aliner Expedition - Woohoo

Wow! Now THAT's really nice to have those hard sides. Pretty classy looking opened. Wonder if that new feature will crossover into the hybrids. Happy Camping with your new RV! :C

RE: Awning care

The best thing I found to clean a dirty, moldy, mildew, stained RV awning is 'Awning Cleaner' ! :B Really I tried all the home made so called tricks and what WORKS is RV Awning Cleaner pure and simple. They know what stains RV awnings and formulated a cleaner for it. And more importantly they formulated a cleaner that won't harm RV awning material.

RE: Litter box.. were to put it?

Keep in mind that clumping kitty litter turns into 'concrete' when wet. That stuff goes down your shower drain and will clog the drain and leave concrete balls in your tank. I placed the litter box 'inside' a soft sided small crate with paper on the bottom of it. NONE of the cat litter got outside of it into my MH. It all remained inside the small soft crate. It sits in the back of the MH on the floor. Best part is you can use it to put your cat in when you don't want it to get out of the RV and they won't mind because it has screen openings all around for them to look out. AND it folds completely flat into a 12 inch circle when not in use! 20 bucks at Walmart! My cat also rides in this crate anytime we are on the road. Cat box at one end, his bed on the other end. He's happy, I'm happy, and no litter dust in my MH. :C https://www.cleanrun.com/images/products/7496.jpg https://www.cleanrun.com/index.cfm/product/482/sport-pet-pop-open-crate.htm

RE: GPS Why not a smart phone?

Stand alone GPS uses on-board map data so it works no matter if you are in range of a cell tower or not. Phone.. will download local map data and store in RAM but if you exit the app for any reason you may not be able to get it back if there is no tower in range.. ... X2 Just like many cell tower reliant electronics such as Onstar. Crash and burn and be pinned in your car and if no cell tower you are out of luck! I don't want to have to rely on cell tower available for directions. GPS here. I also think it has more useful functions. Bigger screen, better graphics to see at a glance of road, lanes and turn offs etc. Alerts me of CG's in the area, eta, detects speed limits, set your own speed limit alarm, etc. Permanently sits on dash and I don't have to take it down to answer or make a phone call. :W

RE: Camp Grounds Best Websites

Just keep in mind if you use CG Reviews it is NOT a complete list of CG's within a given area. Nor is GoodSam or Woodalls. You will miss out on some of the nices CG's if you limit yourself to the above search sites. Googling campgrounds in the area you want to stay seems to be the best way.

RE: Outside rear clamshell kitchen like on teardrop campers

We had a 2010 Trail-Lite 20' tt... called a tail-gater. We loved it. It had a full inside kitchen and a large outside rear counter, with lots of storage, tv, sink and place for a fridge. We talked about adding the microwave but never did. We traded it in on a KZ with a slide and side outdoor kitchen. http://i.imgur.com/CjWSyD4l.jpg That is slick! I have never seen a TT like that. Did you have to special order it?

RE: Slabs, Salvation Mountain, East Jesus

Nope, not my idea of an RV'ing destination. Certainly not worth the gas to even do a drive by of THAT! REAL sad what they have 'allowed' them to do this place. :( Someone needs to take action to reclaim this part of our American land. http://i.imgur.com/TCmS5jel.jpg height=320 width=240
