RE: Wife did it

Any normally intelligent person can do this, with some proper coaching and practice. It's a skill, but it's not rocket science. Seriously!! and Amen!!

RE: I started a new Facebook group

I don't get the complaints about lack of / diminished activity on the B forum of rv dot net and simultaneously promoting a new B group at another venue. In terms of netiquette, it's considered extremely rude to "poach" from one site in order to promote attendance on ones own or another site of like kind.

RE: Wagon Trains

"Oh puhlease" is right! We have plenty of biker clubs throughout California that usually travel in packs on weekends. I've never had a problem with them, nor felt threatened, nor seen / experienced any nefarious behaviors by them on the road. I'd liken them to any RV group caravanning together. They're just out together enjoying their bikes and the camaraderie of other like-minded people. The Waco scene morons are the exception rather than the rule.

RE: socket size for heater element

My Suburban water heater anode rod takes a 1 1/16th socket. Be sure to get a deep socket or use an extension for easier access.

RE: Selling RV Parts

If the parts are RV brand specific, you might want to join / advertise on owner group sites, which often have a For Sale section.

RE: Ammo OK?

Everything I've heard points at them being extra paranoid about guns. We ARE NOT paranoid about guns. OUR LAWS for OUR COUNTRY and for all who visit. Your laws for your country...which I obey when in the USA. Glad you clarified that! When I read the original statement re: paranoia, my first thought was "ummm, no. It's certain U.S. types that are paranoid, period." Anyway, thanks for countering that comment.

RE: Motorhome Crash 5/11/2015

Assuming the big rig driver was going 60mph, how fast was that Class A going... while towing a truck at that? No sympathy for stupidity, especially that special kind of stupidity that endangers other people.

RE: Packing list for the most comfy rv experience....

So here is my packing list I am handing to the wife tonight to get us all set and ready to go in our brand new bare bones camper. Good lawyer for when "the" wife files for divorce.

RE: Cancer sticker

I think we're missing the boat... California Causes Cancer ;) Ya know it is really bad when a Senior member and a Moderator jumps on the Bash California Thread................the ;)does nothing to make it OK to join in on any kind of bashing that is allowed here especially by a Mod. Amen. Personally, I wish all those who lean toward bashing California would just stay away. Although, I'm betting that half of the bashers have never even been to California and are just suffering from echolalia.

RE: Trip Planning: The Perfect Family Trip 2016!

I remember several commenting that the word "perfect" was inappropriate and not synonymous with road trips. "Perfect" is a perfectly acceptable word to use as long as thwarted intentions and unmet expectations are embraced and appreciated as part of the perfection. Enjoy.

RE: Autos or RVs parking lot

At 22 feet long and 8ft. 8in. tall I take the farthest auto slot when parking diagonally at a rest stop. That way I am not blocking the view of oncoming traffic for anyone who may want to back out. Being higher, I usually have no problem looking over the others when I back out. If the slots are perpendicular to the curb I back in so I have a really good view when leaving. It amazes me that few people ever consider how they will leave the space they have decided to drive into before they drive into it. This.

RE: Autos or RVs parking lot

Common courtesy would say leave the longer spots for those who need them!! park that B as tho' it is a car! Common courtesy is dependent on the circumstances, time of day as well (trucks usually get off the road later in the afternoon). If the auto lot is close to chock full, while the truck spaces are empty, I'll opt for a truck space out of courtesy for the autos. At 22.9" the auto spaces don't always accommodate for length, most especially in older rest stops.

RE: Autos or RVs parking lot

We are 21 feet and we usually use the RV lots because we are longer than a regular car length X2 Although sometimes it depends on how crowded each area is; how crowded the truck parking area is; and, how much thoroughfare space there is between the set of auto parking spaces. If the signage says "Trucks /RVs", I'll park there, although I'll pull up to front-most limit so there is room behind me for another smallish RV.

RE: "Heading Home" checklist

Antenna retracted. Refrig door in locked position. Ensure gray/black tank outlet cap on firmly. Pull out of campsite, then step out of rig and do a visual once-over of the campsite for anything that may have been overlooked, i.e. leveling blocks.

Escargot 04/26/15 04:53pm Camping World RV Sales

In reading the reviews, it appears to me that there are a lot of bugs in the Magellen but it is on sale now at Camping World for about $100 less ($249) than the Garmin. Thanks... So you save $100 for a buggy GPS? That doesn't make for good cents. I'm a Garmin fan. Have one that is several years old that I keep in my car, and another, Garmin 2689LMT, that I purchased a few months ago and keep in my RV. The newer one has free lifetime maps and traffic updates. I went for the 6 inch screen because I thought the 7in would just be too much in terms of size. I paid under $300.

RE: Stealth camping

I have no sympathy whatsoever for the so called "homeless". They are either frauds, druggies, alcoholics, or mentally ill. And the latter were released from institutions in the '70s by "compassionate" liberals because of movies like "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" and "Bill". Actually most were released in the 80s when conservatives closed up government run or subsidized mental hospitals so they could spend money on other things. You're quite the chest thumper, eh? Your rememberer is quite different than mine. I remember them being closed because the "advanced" thinking at the time was that it was better to be out in the population than to be shut up into a "home". My brother was in one, and has been out since then. He is in a group home. If he were to be released totally, he could not cope. However, if he was any worse off, then a hospital setting would be better. But, it was the liberalized education people who closed them off. The mentally ill were dumped, and half-way houses were closed by the "ketchup is a vegetable" President, who, ironically became a vegetable himself. With regard to "They are either frauds, druggies, alcoholics, or mentally ill." I think your generalization is missing a few other categories, nonetheless, spend a couple of months living on the streets and I am willing to guarantee you will end up having psychological challenges. Anyway, how about getting back to the OP, and forego broadcasting our prejudices against humans living in unfortunate circumstances.
