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.

RE: Would this bother you?

If he hadn't moved my storage bins so he could get his slide on my space, I probably would let the back slide go. Oh no he didn't!! I missed this part somehow. He doesn't get to rearrange any of the items within the parameters of your space in order to accommodate his encroachment. At this point I'd either read the encroacher the riot act or I'd threaten to sue the manager and facility for breaching the contract. What is it with so many freaks and their over blown sense of entitlement??

RE: Would this bother you?

Tell the manager that you want a generous reduction in cost of rent since you do not have unfettered access to your RV.

RE: Would this bother you?

Agree. Notify management. Things could escalate so you really don't need / want to get into a 1 on 1 confrontation. Besides, this guy may have had complaints lodged against him before that management knows about. Hand it over to them. Get it resolved before you get your Class A.

RE: How far to travel with only 2 weeks vacation time/year

Personally, since it's fixed, I tend to use time vs. distance as my deciding factor. When I have a time limit and no specific plans, I choose a direction and head out. Once I reach 1/2 the amount of time allotted, I turn around and head back, often on a different route.

RE: Former or Inactive members

SPOILER ALERT Unpopular response coming on: Despite my profile, I have been here since '02 (Another story) In those 13 years I have had many lengthy absences, one as long as 9 months. Despite my profile, I have been here since 2001. I rarely comment, although I have been a bit more verbal in the past few months or so. I've learned a ton from the contributors on the rv.net fora, for which I am ever grateful. I've also been able to pay it forward in many situations, and that has been very gratifying. People move on; give up RVing; interests change; lifestyles change; medical and other life altering experiences come to the fore; some change their forum nicknames; others participate passively - reading without commenting; while some may feel they have shared all they have to share and anyone interested can use the search function to find answers to their queries. I'm sure there are also those who burned out on the "p1ss1ng contests". I mean to say, there are as many reasons as there are people.

RE: Tiny coffee maker and toaster

Found an easy compact item to make coffee,.... A note regarding the Melitta type cone, collapsible or not: After placing the filter in the cone and adding the dry coffee, pour just enough water to cover the grounds. This saturates and "opens" up the grounds. That water will also wick up the filter a bit and keeps the sides of the paper filter from collapsing into the wet grounds. After the initial water drips out, continue adding the amount of water that will fill your cup. I use the brown filters vs. the white ones because ... no bleach. Edited to explain: I added this comment because several have complained about the paper filters in their Melitta cones collapsing.

RE: 5 things we don't love about our RV

Would be nice to have: - Adjustable steering wheel - Driver seat swivel - Inset base (even a protruding one would do!) for table leg near passenger/driver seats - Removable exterior snap-in-place solid vent covers for refrig and coffee pot, otherwise rain foods in behind the refrigerator. - More insulation - Additional water pump switch in the bathroom - Additional genset on/off at dashboard - Three extra inches added to width so I can sleep on the couch width-wise vs. making the bed to sleep lengthwise - Galley drawers and upper cabinet designed with function-over-form vs. form-over-function - 4 to 5 more inches of ground clearance so I can at least poke my head under the chassis to give it a once over Otherwise, I love, love, love my RV! Seriously.

RE: Wet Rain Coats...

Thanks for your ideas. Still not sure how to get the wet stuff to the shower without soaking the carpet. I guess a line of towels?? Plastic garden bag at the entry? Insert gear. Carry to shower/bathroom. At least you won't have more wet stuff to dry, i.e. towels from covering the carpet.
