RE: Bugslide... it really works

Rob, does the charcoal lighter fluid have an adverse effect on the paint?

RE: Windows 10... From an Apple Guy

So win10 is a terrible OS? Over 500 million machines as of this spring. I guess you will find computers that have issues especially if you have no control over the hardware. Does anyone think that other OSs don't have problems with their updates? Just yesterday Apple is going to try to incorporate older machines into new OS. Makes one wonder why that hasn't always been the goal. you make a good point. my experience with Win10 is limited to acting as tech support to family and friends. my primary issue is the user interface...totally different from Win7 and earlier versions. Win10 is more like a smart phone or tablet. I recall reading that people whose first experience with windows is Win10 love the OS as it's more intuitive and similar to their smart devices. OTOH, many, maybe most, windows users like me who date back to Windows 3/3.1/Windows for Work Groups and earlier have a steep learning curve with the GUI because it is so different from "legacy" windows. my other issue is the forced update. I get that troubleshooting issues is easier if users are all on the same page in terms of OS version. but I'm a guy that assumes the worst in terms of an upgrade and so I do a complete image backup of the OS partition before applying any changes to the OS. that was problematic with Win10 as MS force fed those updates to everyone. no way to turn them off other than disabling the update service. at some point either our Win7 machines, which have been incredibly reliable for many years, will need to be replaced or January 2020 when MS will cease all support of Win7. when that happens it will be new PC time which means Win10 and somehow we'll manage.

RE: Want to test AC before heading south - no 30a service.

We are headed to TN and then on to FL in July. This will be our first trip of the year and, given the temps we will be facing, I'd like to test the AC before we leave - just to make sure it is in working order. We have no 30a plug at home. Other than pulling into a campground somewhere, is there any option anyone can suggest to do a quick test on the unit? how about running your generator?

RE: Bugslide... it really works

name of that product, please? griots garage has "bug barricade" which is a spray on that leaves a film that keeps bugs from sticking, in most cases A quick hit with the hose gets all but the big ones off. "bug and smudge" remover gets the rest of them quick. Since we travel a lot we get the stuff in gallon jugs, pretty economical that way. thanks

RE: Ohio Turnpike rest areas

I see that there are a couple of resat areas in Ohio that have facilities for overnighting with hookups. Anyone ever use these? are they often full or hardly used? I'm thinking of stopping at the one near Toledo last time we used them was 30-years ago. we stopped at one of them a year or so ago but they looked too short for our class A + toad (~56').

RE: Storage/Maintenance

I'm still looking but once I get a coach I will be keeping it somewhere, probably, uncovered. So, for those who do not store in an enclosed facility or under a roof of some sort, how and where do you store your unit? Currently I have an older 27' Class C that is parked in my yard but there are a few reasons why the next one (Class A) won't be parked here. Many trees, pollen, leaves, etc. - very dirty. Also a larger Class A likely wouldn't fit so I will be looking to store it somewhere else. Do many people use covers for their coach when it sits? Any advice appreciated. Thanks. If there were inside storage within a reasonable distance of our home I'd use it. but there's not so the Banana Boat III either lives uncovered in our driveway or in an outdoor storage lot. many people have reported scratches caused by covers.

RE: Solid Signal says no Dish Hopper 3 in RV.

i was told it would work but limited to a max of three simultaneous recordings with my western arc trav’ler. to achieve the 16-simultaneous recordings requires a fixed dish.

RE: Inquiring Minds -- Plumbing -- Full gray water tank

Only one Gray Water tank that is only one drain valve Shower drains into the gray water tank, because the gray water tanks fill faster when taking showers than when not taking showers. well, the water is going somewhere. i have two gray tanks but just one gray dump valve. if you are certain you have just one gray tank and are certain that the shower is not draning into the black tank then it would follow that your gray tank is not full and/or your tank indicators are wrong. Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.

RE: Inquiring Minds -- Plumbing -- Full gray water tank

I have a North Peak 5er by Hartland. I expected that when the gray water tank became full that water would backup in the shower pan since that is the lowest drain point. However this is not what happen. When the gray water tank is full, the sink that is in use (kitchen or bath) stops draining. I like this feature because it lets me know that the tank needs to be drained. Water does NOT backup in the shower. Question: How do they accomplish this? either by plumbing the shower into a second gray tank (like our current MH) or into the black tank (like in our first MH).

RE: water filters

we just use the under-sink in-line filter and the fridge has it's own filter. and if either hadn't come with the MH I doubt we'd use anything. we went without for the first 15-years and we're still here. but as long as they're there we use 'em and change the cartridges once a year.

RE: Help with Dometic AC interior cover

Obviously not upside down, looks does it slide all the way out or just a little and then down. maybe try taking filter back out and try again, it can't be much keeping it out. if it was obvious to me I wouldn't have suggested it.

RE: Help with Dometic AC interior cover

RE: Xfinity internet

As was posted, that hotspot is for Xfinity customers only and they can log on using their Xfinity credentials. You will not be able to so that is not an option. Not that it applies to you, but since the Xfinity rental modems all default to providing publicly accessible hotspots, they are the most obvious choice for a nefarious person to spoof. Dave the XFin modems come with the “guest” feature enabled. we’ve disabled that “feature” on ours.

RE: Free Sirus ?

Sirius currently has a free listening campaign going on. For how long? Even I don't listen to the radio in car very often, I had good time yesterday listening to Hard Rock. If not for DW turning the volume down, I would have a blast on 10 hr drive. thru may 29th.
