RE: Whats the status of NEW RV Park in Medford OR?

Mike, I thought the TV news said the new Costco was all approved? I'm over there 4 or 5 times a year and have noticed the same thing at Walmart, older RVs. There was list somewhere and I thought it said they don't allow over night parking at the Medford store. My family likes the shopping there so a nice park in town would be good. I've stayed at Valley of the Rogue, but I know they would prefer to be closer to everything. It has passed all of the hurdles so far, but there are still people saying that the traffic situation would be too much for the area. There were signs at the WalMart that you couldn't stay overnight, but I haven't noticed them lately, and there are people in there frequently. There was a WalMart going in a little closer to Central Point awhile back, but they killed that and put it back where the old one was. Therefore I am just keeping my fingers and toes crossed for the Costco. History hasn't been good for department stores in the Central Point area. We have gotten a few recently though, so the city fathers are loosening up. Mike

RE: Whats the status of NEW RV Park in Medford OR?

So... is the new Costco for sure? Or still just talk? Closer, but still hashing it out. Heaven forbid that Central Point would get any form of shopping. Mike

RE: yes i'm cheap

I used to do that, but I couldn't afford a bucket, so I just used a paper 12 ounce beer cup. It took a lot of trips, but if you hadn't drank too much of the beer, it worked OK. Mike

RE: Whats the status of NEW RV Park in Medford OR?

I was past the fairgrounds a couple of days ago, and they have started on it. I have no more information than that. I still see people in the Wal Mart parking lot. Mike

RE: suburban water heater

Wheter you use propane or electric on a Suburban WH......you still use the anode rod. True..... But I think 'Mike_uswest' was referring to difficulty in removing electric element and decided to just use the propane system Right, the anode rod comes out easily. That is part of my winterizing chore. It is hard to get to the electric element to get a good grip on it. I'm sure it has never been out in 22 years. Mike

RE: suburban water heater

You should pull the elec element and inspect it. If the anode rod is gone then the element may well be corroded. May be time to replace both. I found that easier said than done. Got the socket they make to do that, penetrating oil, and no go. I gave up and figured I would just use propane. It is frozen in there tight. Mike

RE: oversized wiring to charge controller

I used #4 AWG that was a multi-strand welding wire. At the controller to get it to fit, I just cut a few strands out, twisted it, and stuck it in. Works fine. Mike

RE: Seven Feathers Casino Canyonville dry camping?

Dry camp area to the North of the Casino is fine, but at times will fill up by late afternoon. Either shuttle to the Casino, or walk across the grass up the hill to spend all your money. Mike

RE: State of Vet Care in the US

Okay, now we are getting into my college is bigger than your college, and my subjects make me better than you are. I personally wouldn't want to be associated with politicians with the mess they are making of our country. Mike

RE: State of Vet Care in the US

Veterinarians are taught to give your pets all the care that humans get for their illnesses. Whether this is best or if it is best in humans case is debatable. Quantity of life is the goal, not quality of life. You seem to be referring your "original" dog to the Pharaoh Dog of Egypt. They are rare, but still a few around. Many of the descendants are similar, which yours is, but there are differences. Vets, or people in any business really enjoy when a customer comes in looking for an argument. Simply stating your preferences should have taken care of the situation. If it didn't, then it was her problem. Mike

RE: Unhook for quick overnight stop

I try to level with the front jacks if possible, and to stabilize. I do unhook the cord, because my brakes on the trailer evidently check in about every minute, and it makes a very quiet click. I can only hear it if I am right by the brake on the trailer, but my wife can hear it and can't sleep. Sometimes it is good to be near deaf. :) Mike

RE: Direct TV ??

I want to thank you all for the input. It sounds like it would be more problem than it is worth, so I will probably stay the way that it is. As long as they keep selling VHS tapes, I'm OK. Thanks again. Mike If all you want to do is take the Genie and watch programs previously recorded it is no problem at all. No antenna is required. Just be sure you don't push the reset button on the Genie as it will not come back to life until it sees the satellite signal. Otherwise, just take the Genie, plug it into your TV and watch all of your recorded programming. Will the Genie allow me to use an older dish to pick up current stations out camping? Mike

RE: Direct TV ??

Mike, I do the same thing, taking an SD receiver along on trips. One question I have is since the Genie is HD will it work your present RV setup. In my case I have an 18" SD dish so using the Genie might be an issue. I have never tried the HD receiver on the road, so I'm not sure how it would work with our smaller dish. Thanks. Mike

Direct TV ??

I have had direct TV for some time now, basic package with one HD and two SD receivers. We have always taken one of the SD receivers and TV when we went out in the boonies to watch TV. Believe it or not, I still use VCR's to tape programs when watching other programs. My question is, they said that I could get their Genie and two mini Genies for $13 a month more than I am paying now. At just over $100 a month now it makes it questionable. I can record up to five shows at a time which sounds better than my VCR. The Gal that I was talking too didn't seem to understand what I wanted to do, so she couldn't tell me if it was possible. If I had 200 hours recorded on the Genie, could I take it with me camping and watch the shows from it while out camping or watch the current shows if I wanted to?Otherwise it wouldn't be of much use to me. Thanks. Mike

RE: Timbren Suspension Kit

I put Timbrens on my Dodge, they may be a little rougher with an empty ride, but I seldom travel without the trailer, and it is great with the trailer on. After all, it is a truck. I like them. Mike

RE: Internet Explorer problem????

I may have to try an alternative for Yahoo, but I like all of the stuff they provide. Triker33, thanks, I will try that with Ccleaner. Mike
