RE: Anyone ever go to Burning Man?

Already lived through the 60's. I don't have to revisit.

RE: What do you put in your beds...sheets?

We have been using a Travasak now for over 10 years. Here is a link from amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Travasak-Evergreen-Microsuede-System-Comforter/dp/B008GPIA58/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

RE: Bubbling Toilet

OR, Yes I did and this solved it for good. Sometimes stuff gets stuck down there. Reach your arm down the hole as far as you can. When down to the max feel around for anything chunky. Grab it and squeeze it between your fingers until it gets smaller then dump some water in it (After you pull your arm out of coarse}. Do this once a month for regular maintenance. Wash your hands before cooking. I do have a self help video available. Hope this helps. I really hope the guy doesn't think you are serious! :)

RE: Soliciting calls on home phone.

We get at least 3 calls a day. Some I answer just to be able to say "Go Away". Now about half of the calls are from Contractors. We don't have Nomorerobos available here. I have called ATT and they cannot/will not block calls unless it is a known number. If I redial the number, it alway states that the number is not in service. They must steal numbers and use them once. At least I can block certain callers on my Cell.

RE: Resume sample for work camping

Just Kidding But..... Since he worked at a Nuclear Power Plant, he could double as one of the Street Lamps in the campground!!! Remember, Just Kidding~~~

RE: First night out, one issue ???

Maybe start the AC early morning. It will help a bit. Also, with any vents or windows open, you are sucking the hot air into the trailer and making the AC work harder. I found this out after running mine that way for 9 years until a friend said to close everything. Seemed to work better. We are going for a week next month to Jackson Calif, where the temps will be in the 90's. Fortunately, we will be at a Casino, so we can go into the air conditioned building.

RE: 12 volt lights dimming ?

I had the same problem. My converter also ruined the batteries. They would boil over and I would have to add water every week. Had a large spot of battery acid on my driveway. New converter, new batteries....All is good for the last year.

RE: how often do you actually use your onan generators

Just a couple of times in 10 years. Ours now has about 92 hours on it. That is mainly from turning it on for an hour or so every other month just to run it in our driveway. I like to know that it will run if the power at the house goes out, since I got rid of my small honda gen that was used for that purpose.

RE: CA permanent plates

I had a Coleman PU some years back. I had the permanent plates on it. Had to pay a fee every 5 years. This is from California.

RE: Can smell mold but can't find it

It took me at least a year to figure out where the moldy smell was coming from in our Class C. Then one day, I noticed water dripping on the outside corner. Turned out that the fill hose attached to the fresh water tank had a crack. The tank was under the dinette bench. Had to have it removed and fixed. All is good so far. I placed one of those "Cinnamon Brooms" in the corner behind the bench to get rid of the smell. Now it smells like cinnamon buns. YUM.

RE: Campgrounds around Portland

The one in Wilsonville is "Pheasant Ridge RV Park". Nice place. About 15 miles or so from Portland. Large shopping center across road that includes restaurants, Costco etc. It is right off of Hwy 5.

RE: RV parks in San Jose

I would be a bit leery of this RV "Park". It is really a Trailer park. If you look at it on satellite in Google maps, you can see what looks like mostly live-in spots. If you want a really nice RV park south of San Jose, you might want to check out Betabel RV park. It is a bit south of San Jose on Hwy 101. It is close to Hollister/San Juan Bautista. We have been there several times.

RE: Cleaning the oven?

Geez! After 10 years of owning our MH, I didn't realize that you were supposed to clean the oven. I have always done the stove top, though. I did notice the other day that it look a bit dirty, but I fixed that by closing the door.

RE: Half Moon Bay Road

We love the fog horn!!! Helps us sleep. 92 isn't a problem with our toad. Done it many times. By the way, they sites are at sea level, but you can't see the water from them. That's why we like Pillar Point.

RE: Dometic Refrigerator not cold enough

I was having a similar problem here in Calif a couple of weeks ago. Outside temp was below +30 and the freezer warmed up to +20 degrees. I put in on gas and it started to cool down. Turned it back to electric, fridge temps are again normal, and outside temp is now over +30 degrees at nite.

RE: Tolls on toll roads

I do that too. The first time I crossed our bridge that is 4 miles from my house, it cost me 14.00 with my car in tow. The next time, I unhooked a mile down the road and it was 10.00 (5.00 for each). A couple of months later when we were about to cross, I told my wife that I would pay the 14.00 because I didn't feel like stopping. When I got to the toll booth, they charged me 20.00. They RAISED the rate. Next time, I will unhook beforehand.

RE: Prime Rib?

For those that are Costco members, they have an offer online for a "Wagyu" Prime Rib Roast. Minimum weight is 11 pounds. Cost is only........$1,199.00. That is $300.00 off regular price!!!!! Get them while they last. By the way, that is $109.00 per pound.
