RE: Need great idea for washing my Cougar roof

Please, with all due respect, don't do it. As you probably know, these roofs can be incredibly slick when wet. Hard enough to stay upright on a level one. Is there anyone who could help you by doing it, or are you able to pay someone? On the other hand, many people never clean their roofs. Most important is the caulking. Good luck!

RE: Smokey Mountains & Blue Ridge Parkway

Agree with Terryallan; Smokies are too far to use as a base for those sights. I would stay in NC and explore there. You can always go back to 40 and skirt gsm on the way back and be back where you would have been anyway. Lots of good choices in NC. Have a great trip!

RE: RV park near Chicago

Fwiw, there is a koa south on 57 in Kankakee, as well as a state park. Metra station about 45 minutes north of there in University Park, fairly close to 57.

RE: I lost another Grand-dog

Sorry to see it. Never easy, and you've had more than your share recently. Best wishes!

Snap traps baited with peanut butter. Check and empty often. 99% of the time they don't know what hit them. Sorry. I hate killing anything too, but these guys will make your life miserable and don't understand "keep out" signs. Can be very destructive. Glue traps are cruel and unusual punishment.

RE: to disk or not to disk

Use it. End of story.

RE: Bad day, need input

Would they consider dropping me over something like this? I highly doubt they would do that unless you've had a bunch of other claims. State Farm is a huge company, and your claim will be a drop in the bucket to them. I doubt you'll have any problem. My $.02 with anyway. Good luck, and sorry for your troubles.

RE: de winterize

You'll have to take the screen out to get to that. The o ring has become unseated. If it won't reseat, easiest fix is to but a whole new connection.

RE: Dewinterizing

Temps falling into the 30's won't do any harm unless they fall to 32 or less. Even then, if daytime temps rise into the 40's+, you should be fine. What I do in iffy situations is set the furnace to lowest setting overnight If it's getting below 32.

RE: need some reviews on a 'generac ix2000'

Very very quiet most of the time... Then after a long stint on a workbench it gets a lot louder for a short time... Generacs don't like me. :B

RE: Tow haul switch???

I've been on both sides of this issue. For a long time I didn't use it, except in the mountains, because I didn't like the shift pattern it created and thought it was probably affecting mileage. Relatively recently I've begun to use it most of the time when towing. I still don't like the shift pattern, but I do like the braking assistance on any/all grades. I've not noticed any appreciable difference in mileage or transmission temps. Guess I'm pretty much in the "use it whenever towing" camp now.

RE: Did I really See It?

Sounds like you stumbled across filming for the next Fast and Furious installment! :)

RE: Closed posts

Ok, one of our valued members came up with a good suggestion. I will henceforth add to the closed post " post closed, position available". Comments? But will you either 1) create more confusion when a position has been filled or 2) create more work for yourself by following up with a "position filled" notice (assuming you're made aware of that)? Appreciate your efforts, Dianne!

RE: Quartzsite first timer thoughts and impressions

Can you tell this 80 year old loves Quartzsite in the winter? You've earned your full hookups, pockets! Here's hoping for more Quartzite experiences for you. If you're there when I make it I would consider it an honor to buy you an adult beverage. Happy trails!

RE: Quartzsite first timer thoughts and impressions

X2. Never having been there, your description helps me to picture it a bit better. I've seen many descriptions of the show, but not much about the blm sites themselves. It's on our bucket list as well. Appreciate it!

RE: Parking in New Orleans

OP here, just to follow up, here's my experience. Filrupmark had it right; the public lot right on the river between roughly the Jax brewery building and Cafe du Monde worked out great. There is a sign saying "no oversized vehicles", but apparently they don't consider mine to be such. I asked the security person upon entering and again after parking, and she said no problem. Parked there in early afternoon and the next evening. There was some street parking on many of the FQ streets, but not sure I would be comfortable with leaving it there only due to the width of the duallies. I had no problem navigating even some of the side streets. The bus from Pontchartrain Landing was easy, but the timing didn't work for our plans. All in all a great trip. Walked all over the FQ and over to Frenchman St. and had a great time! Thanks to all who responded to my question.

RE: Easy Dutch Oven Recipe

Looks like a good one. Thanks for sharing, as always!

RE: Buckboard bacon . ???

I've always used fresh pork belly for my bacon. Usually use a homemade cure, so can't really speak to that part. I do have a jar of cabelas brine waiting to be used, but haven't tried that yet. Seems to me the cut of meat will make more difference than the brine when it comes to flavor.

RE: best friend

Sorry for your loss, old guy. I lost one of my high school buddies a couple of years ago. Even though we hadn't maintained real close contact in recent years, it still hit me like a ton of bricks. Very few weeks go by when I don't think about him. It will get better as time passes, but you'll never forget. Hang in there!

RE: Alternatives to Coachnet?

I've had the koa/allstate service for a couple of years and have been happy. Fortunately haven't had to use it for rv service, but past winter my car wouldn't start in frigid weather after work. Called for service, had a unit there within 20 minutes. When we still couldn't get it started, they suggested towing to nearby shop but I requested a tow home as I believed I could work on it myself. They gave me no problems, asked no questions and had it towed the extra 20 miles to my home.
