RE: telescopic ladders

I have one that I like very much for the small storage area that it takes, but I did have problems with it once. In very cold and snowy conditions I was using it to get on my roof, and one of the buttons to extend the sections from the one below didn't get all the way engaged, and when I got to the top, it let go, breaking one of the button latches and nearly dropping me 10 feet. I watch to make sure everything is well seated before I climb now. Mike

RE: Pop-ups when on the Forum

I have had that problem a couple of times, if you are using IE, look at the bottom of the pop up and get the name of the originator, go into tools at the top of the page, in the drop down go to manage ad ons, on the left hit tool bars and extensions, let it load, go down the list until you find the culprit, click to highlight, go to the bottom and click disable. it may take awhile, you may have to restart, but that usually takes care of it.

RE: CB Radio install in a 2500 Dodge

The only problem that I have had with mine, is you have to keep the attachments to the antenna from getting corroded from the elements over time. Three to five miles is about tops with mine. Mike

RE: The Hill

When we went on it, at the bottom, my wife got out and kissed the ground. I didn't see any problem. Mike

RE: Have you ever felt threatened while camping?

No, but as someone else on here has said before, I haven't had a fire either, but I still have a fire extinguisher. I like being prepared. Mike

RE: What happened to camping/RVing?

I'm a little older, but I still feel that a great camping trip is spending several days never seeing another human. It makes for a great nature experience. Mike

RE: TomTom VIA 1605M RV GPS

I got a 1600M for Christmas, from Best Buy, that is supposed to be the same as the 1605M. How do they differ? Mike

RE: Good Sam Highways Publication?????

Thanks for the answer. That just shows that I often don't read some of what I should. I already take Trailer Life. Mike

Good Sam Highways Publication?????

I have been a Good Sam Life Member for a long time. I was just cleaning out my magazines and found out that I have not received a Highways publication since the May-July 2013 copy. Are they still publishing this magazine? Mike

RE: Battery Equalization

On the 1093, isn't it the reconditioning that blows the sulfate off the plates, and the equalization just stirs up the fluids to stop stratification? Mike

Timmac, Thanks for the answer. May wait until next summer. Mike

Red Max Pro Stripper ????

I put Red Max Pro on my fifth wheel over 3 years ago, and after about 2 years I got into some bugs traveling that were difficult to get off. After scrubbing diligently on the front cap, they came off, but you could see that there were scrub marks in the RMP. I cleaned it off, and put on a couple more coats. That did a pretty good job. Earlier this year, the finish started flaking on the front. I cleaned it well again, and applied more coats. Now it is starting to flake badly again. This is just on the front cap which is facing south and gets all of the summer 100* weather here in the summer. The rest of the rig still looks like new, other than where it has been scraped by brush getting into hunting areas. I have only washed the rest of the trailer with mild soap, and the only time the sun is on it is when we are traveling. The question is: today I tried using some ammonia, I saw where some have used it as a stripper, and it didn't work real well, but the decals in the front were starting to peal in some areas where they were a little loose to start with. Will the Zepp's Stripper take off the decals also, and is there any way to protect them? Thanks. Mike

RE: Help with Oregon Poll!

I have lived in Oregon most of my long life, and after school, worked in southern Oregon for 28 years, and had 10 days vacation that the family took going to a section of Oregon most of the time. With all of those years, we didn't even come close to seeing all of the state. How much time do you have?? Do the best you can and enjoy. It is a beautiful state. Mike

RE: Will a 1000watt Yamaha generator charge battery?

My Yamaha 1000 when plugged to my fifth wheel charges it up very well. I have a 45 amp converter. I have three 12 volt deep cycle batteries. Mike

RE: Trouble with black tank sprayer... baffling

Mine did the same thing years ago. I just went with one to put in from the toilet. I tried everything to break the clog down to no avail. Mike
