RE: RVing if you don't like to drive?

Why don't you look into buying a seasonal site? These are MH's, trailers and sometimes park models that are permanently on a site in a CG and people come out on weekends, their vacation or come out for the summer and/or winter months. Most CG's have both RV camping sites and a special section set aside for the seasonal campers. Call around to the CG's where you would like to stay and ask if they have any for sale. Many seasonal people will sell their RV right on the seasonal lot. You usually pay once a year for the season which includes the lot rent. You could buy one in the south and one in the north and full time between them. Then just drive to the CG or fly there! :C The cost of owning 2 of them would be FAR FAR less than driving around full time in your MH. And would fit your need of not wanting to travel full time. The seasonal sites next to where I stay in the CG during the summer months charges $1,200 a year for a seasonal site. Often thought about doing that. I sure can NOT travel in my MH for $1,200 a year! :W

RE: How safe is Camco antifreeze

It's food grade and meant to be safe for water lines for Marine and RV. It has been around and used for many many years. I have been winterizing my MH with that stuff for over 10 years now. AND I put it directly IN my fresh water tank and then pump it thru the lines. Makes no sense to say you can't put it in the tank when you ARE putting it in all the lines.:R Come spring all you do is run fresh water into the fresh water and and open all the faucets until it is all gone. It is hogwash that it leaves a taste. And by no means is it not safe.

RE: Wisconsin Campgrounds

For Milwaukee. The Wisconsin State Fair Grounds CG. Yikes. This is more or less camping for an event at the State Fair grounds. No it's not. I found out about staying at Fair Ground CG's by accident when I broke down. Local police escorted me off the road to what I thought would be a parking lot which turned out to be the Fair Grounds for the night to safely wait for repair! I was surprised when I pulled in and saw about 6 Class A's already parked there. It cost me a whole $7.00 for full hookups! :C All Fair Ground CG's are open to the public all year around. And most towns always have one. They are quiet, nice, and really inexpensive. IMHO Hidden gems. I try and find them all the time in my travels now. Des Moines Iowa Fair Grounds CG being the nicest I have stayed at. On top of a hill overlooking the gold capped capitol. 1,000 sites and there was only me and 4 other RV's that weekend. I liked it so much I ended up staying over a week! :C Of course the ONLY time you would NOT want to stay there is during their County Fair! And bottom line you wouldn't be able to get in anyway they would be full up.

RE: Bacon, Bacon

If you are from up North don't even bother to buy a pizza in Florida! Sauce is an option. and then when you ask for it to be a little more than a dab they look at you like your are from outer space. I gave up on my search for a goog tasting pizzeria pizza in Florida. :( Once you've eaten Chicago pizza you are forever damaged to like pizza anywhere else on this planet! :B

RE: Battery in a cell phone

... when I asked the sales person what the difference was between that one and another one she said you can't take the battery out of the Moto. Make sure the new model does not change networks on you !!! Often the sales person does not recognize that the one phone is a CDMA and the other is a GSM. thanks for the heads up. That is important to me because verizon doesn't work where I am at. Saved me from making a bad purchase.

RE: Hot water just stopped flowing

My bi-pass lever is under the sink almost on the floor where you put all your stuff. No matter how much I tell them NOT to put stuff around the lever......at least once a year it gets pushed into the closed position. :R

RE: Battery in a cell phone

Thanks. I had an iPhone before so I guess I didn't miss not being able to take the battery out. Guess I'll try out the one they have on sale.

Battery in a cell phone

Looking at getting a different straight talk cell phone. Walmart has one on sale and when I asked the sales person what the difference was between that one and another one she said you can't take the battery out of the Moto. I've never had to take a battery out of any of my other cell phones so what would be the big deal of not being able to take it out? tks, rock

RE: 1999 Coachmen Lep - Flooded!

Check where the bottom of the awning arms attach to the side of the MH. These screws come loose and pull at the molding. It doesn't have to be pull off either. Just a little bit away from wall and the water finds it way in. Your year MH should have molding 3/4 ways down on side. This is where the floor is and the darn awning arms are bolted here to what only will be 3/4 inch particle board that is your floor. The water runs down the side of the MH and into those awning brackets that have come loose and soaks the floor and wicks to the carpet. Took me forever to find out where my wet carpet was coming from and it turned out to be from the awning arms lower brackets pulling away from the side of the MH.

RE: So, just how "hazardous" can a tank full of poo be?

Next time you are RV'ing and get screaming diarrhea from what you THOUGHT was too much chilli and beer? Maybe put some gloves on when you dump, and you will find out it was not the chilli and beer. :W

RE: Saving RGV Tulips

Leave the green stems on until they completely die. They feed the bulb. Then google forcing bulbs. Because you are now going to have to put them in the fridge to cool down so they will bloom 'next' year. Bulbs HAVE to have to go thru a winter to bloom again.

RE: Black water holding tank

I'll just add what they told me about letting a sewer truck drain your black tanks. I do a lot of sporting events where a residential sewer truck comes around to drain your tanks. Most will take a bucket and put your sewer hose in it and add their big suction hose to the bucket. Their suction is higher than the sewer hose and it works just fine. It is frightening to watch the first time you see it done that way though! One event the sewer truck guy had an adapter and was sucking it straight from the tank. Thank god my neighbor was the RV mobile repair on site. He said NOT to allow them to drain the tanks. The suction from those commercial trucks will collapse an RV black tank.
