RE: Suggestions for soundbar for camper

Will the speakers work off of the TV power, I have limited plug in space on my converter, and the speakers on the TV go backward making it hard for my old ears to hear what is going on? Mike

RE: Air conditioning for off grid camping

What I don't like about the AC is they don't last. Our 5th is 22 years old, and we have had it 10 years. The AC worked when we got it, changed the thermostat and tried it, and it was working. It was hot one day, and we happened to be plugged in and it worked. Last month we were in the desert, and it was warm, so I turned it on, and it wouldn't work. I guess we wore it out. The fantastic fan still works. Mike

RE: A shout out for Timbren

I would think that amount of drop would be typical with bags or Timbren's. It is just personal choice which you want. Timbren's are put them on and forget them, bags are adjustments needed. Mike

RE: HWY199 between Grants Pass and Crescent City

You will have no problem. It is narrow in areas, very scenic, and a pleasant drive. Just take it slow and enjoy. Mike

RE: Replacing carpet in a 5er

We replaced much of the carpet in ours with vinyl, and just went with throw rugs. We had the water pump go out and messed up the lower carpet. Like this better, less water worry. Mike

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
