RE: Your Wish List for RV Manufacturers

Start making RV interiors with fabric designs that do NOT look like the 70's.

RE: Are you kidding?

I am just glad I am here in Florida where there was a serious weather condition here also on Thursday resulting from that same storm....... It got down to 32 degrees for a whole 2 hours right before sunrise when the temps went right back up to 70! Whew, that was a real bear to endure!! http://i44.tinypic.com/2hwjnmo.gif

RE: Toilet upgrade and chemical question

Everyone I met with the hand sprayer said they never used it. Chemicals. All depends WHERE you RV. If you RV down in the south and if you ever are where you have to wait until full to dump? You will find chemicals are necessary. Yup it's only a holding tank but with temps around 98 degrees when you flush it's a straight open shot to the tank that is now boiling sewage at 98 degrees! Do the math there will be smells coming up that opening no matter how fast you close it! :W The original standby marine/RV chemicals 'breakdown' waste and toilet paper. IMHO this keeps the solids from sticking to sensors and clogs down by the blades. I use chemicals and 10 years counting 'my' sensors work all the time.

RE: New RV problems

It is poor design. In fact I don't think they think thru or test anything they install into many RV's. You have a lid that doesn't stay up. That's not your fault. Who tries toilet lids when buying an RV. I bought by first TT as a newbie and didn't realize until my first camping trip with it that you couldn't close the bathroom door when sitting on the toilet because your knees prevented the door from closing. :R:R On my second purchase of an RV when the salesman started telling me how great the kitchen cabinets looked I pushed him aside and headed straight for the bathroom to see if I could use it with the door closed! :B Sadly no matter what the price, many of the RV's I looked at where the toilet was located, if you were over 5 foot tall your knees 'would' hit the door. So if anyone in your camping family is over 5 ft tall 'sit on' and 'try out' the toilet BEFORE you buy! :B

RE: Seek advice about towing my car behind my A-Class

Just be aware and look into the in's and out's of using a dolly and the weight of that car you have. You want to tow the lightest car you can NOT what your MH is rated to tow. Some CG's will not let you put your dolly along side your MH at the campsite. Some will make you park it somewhere else on the grounds. And do a search on those that used a dolly and the problems they encountered with the loading and tie down of it. IMHO and what I did when I was not sure if I even wanted to tow. I bought a used small car that could be towed four down. Investment was small I figured I could sell it and get my money back if it turned out not to be what I wanted to do. You can't do that if you feel the need to buy new. Find the "lightest weight" car you can find. I found a real nice 'used' Chevy 4x4 Tracker for a real good price. It was so light weight I didn't even know it was back there and ended up using it for 6 years full timing AND sold it for more than I paid for it when I pulled off the road!!!

RE: Small Engine Storage

Lived in the Midwest for 40 years and ALL my small engines got Sta-bil put in them for storage over the winter and all started up just fine come summer. And actually I put some in all my trucks when real cold weather was predicted to prevent gas line freeze.

RE: New Full Timing

I agree with Old-Biscuit on this one, sort of. Maybe there should be two different classifications for "full time RVers". Retired Full Time RVers Non-Retired Full Time RVers X2 RV - RECREATIONAL Vehicle I think there should be a forum offered for those who live permanently in a TT or MH perhaps because it is less expensive than a home, financial difficulties, etc. Their questions would be better answered by people in the same situation. Full Time "RV'ing" is a completely different way of life and is usually planned for years in advance as one's choice of retirement which includes RV'ing in their RV which encompasses traveling across the US, etc.

RE: RV Park has dog park in it.

I've heard some horror stories about dog parks and would never take our dogs to one...... You've got that right. Take you dog to a huge open area where there are 10 to 20 other loose dogs? :S 9 out of 10 owners do not have a solid recall or for that fact any training on their dogs and just as many have never even let their dogs loose with other dogs. It's the owners that feel the need to do this not the dogs. Dog parks are Dog fights just waiting to happen. Nope I am not about to turn my dog loose in an open area with owners and dogs I know nothing about. Not to mention you have no idea if these dogs are healthy and not carrying disease.

RE: BEWARE ... Kissimmee & Orlando - toll roads

Chicago has unmanned cash only tolls on the entrance and exit ramps. People do a rolling stop and throw at these tolls. If they miss they don't get out they just throw more money at it and keep on rolling. So Real simple when you are short......... Just open the door and look on the ground. I found There is usually no less than a couple of bucks in change right on the ground at all cash tolls to help you make pay your toll. :B

RE: RV Park has dog park in it.

I have dogs and I would not go to a RV dog park CG. IMHO, JMHO it just increases the number of bad dog 'owners' all concentrated in one place.

RE: New Full Timing

If you are planning to do it while in Ohio it won't work. You will freeze to death in winter in an RV.

RE: Need design for portable outdoor TV stand/tripod

This is the best RV outside TV mount DIY I have ever seen! Posted by a fellow forum member. Goes inside the bay and 'extends' out when needed. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/23876240/R%20Vision/2012-06-21%2015.53.05.jpg height=400 width=300 See instructions here: http://forums.woodalls.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/27897136/gotomsg/27897296.cfm#27897296

RE: gps mounting bracket

I have never had a suction cup stay stuck in a MH. The day it flew off the window and hit the floor on the motorhome with the GPS rolling on the floor and her saying over and over and over again "turn around when possible"....is when I quit trying to do the windshield mount. :B I use the donut friction mount. Sticks like glue where ever you put it and what is REAL slick....is you just unplug it and grab the donut and you can take it with you and put it in your toad, other vehicle or a friend your going with that doesn't have one. No fuss.

RE: Best road atlas

I bought that Motor carrier Map and by god the type is so micro small!!! What a joke, beware of that before you buy one. It's type is 10 times smaller than the regular size Rand Mcnally. So the Motor Carrier map which is certainly not cheap got chucked into the first garbage can I found. I also like my states to be on ONE page not split up over 2 or three. :R I want to be able to see at a glance where I am headed 'within' the whole state on one page and type big enough to see without having to pull over to read it. I finally found one I could actually read and the entire state on one page. The type is "2 times larger" than RandMcnally Big type and each state is fully viewable on one page. Find it at Kangaroo Gas Stations. :W

RE: A Roof Rack For A Toad ?

I had the same problem with my toad no gutters nowhere to put a roof rack on. Go cargo carrier! You can carry 10 times the weight on a simple cargo carrier out the back of the toad. Great for lawn chairs you name it! 50 bucks at Tractor Supply when on sale. Carries up to 500 lbs. If you need to just build a box to secure the stuff you needed secured and bolt it to the carrier. I've just ratchet strapped a rubbermaid tub to it when needed. Walmart has tubs large enough to fill the whole width of the cargo carrier. http://i50.tinypic.com/xnycs6.jpg http://i60.tinypic.com/fjmil5.jpg It's the best thing I have ever bought for my RV was the carrier for the toad. Amazing all what you can get on it. I even moved a washer and dryer on it!

RE: Where to sell a tow vehicle

So I've tried all the different suggestions - escapees, irv2, auto trader, craigslist, etc... So far I've had 2 prospective buyers from Craig's List, 1 scam from Craig's list, 1 scam from Auto trader, and no leads from anywhere else. It'll be interesting to see which one works in the long run. watch using the auto trader one. I listed a car there ONCE and never again. The scams where hot and heavy and persistent and auto trader infiltrated every thing on my computer and sold my ad info to millions more. Took almost a year to get rid of it all.:R

RE: Where to sell a tow vehicle

When I listed my toad for sale the price was higher than book because of the towing equipment. It would have been a steal for an RV'er wanting a ready to go toad. I was really hoping to sell it to an RV'er. What I quickly found out trying to sell it locally in Florida was potential buyers would see the out of state plates on it when they came out and for them that meant an additional 500.00 to register it. So the young family in need of a second car the additional 500 was a deal breaker for them.
