RE: Ios 8.1 out today

...I hear 8.2 and 8.3 aren't far behind. then there's no reason to upgrade to 8.1. even without 8.2 or 8.3 i'll wait as apple hasn't had a very good track record in 'getting it right the first time' lately. 8.11 is just as likely as 8.2

RE: Staying at truck stops?????

Our friends kids are heading to Florida, the usually kiddie park, LOL, next month from Ontario. They are planning on staying the one night heading down and back at a truck stop and then at the resort when they arrive. How safe is this? Anything they should know? location...location...location. big cities? not for us. small towns, rural areas...yes.

RE: 20K and 2.5 yr fight secures a win over HOA for RV parking

I live in a planned community with a HOA. The developers were new to the game and used boilerplate regulations. As long as they had title to more than half the lots, they had a voting majority. No vehicles visible from the street. Not even a car. So no RVs unless you parked them behind the house in your yard. They even required prior approval to add a screen door to the front door. How ugly can a screen door be? As soon as the actual residents had ownership of more than 50% of the lots, the residents took over all the positions on the HOA board at a special meeting. The developers not only left town, they left the state. There are still regulations, but they're voted on by the people that actually live here, and they're livable and sensible. i'm sure that the HOA board that my employee lived in that regulated the size, shape and color of the garbage cans thought those regs were livable and sensible...two qualities that cannot be measured or defined. and that's OK for those who wish to have nearly every aspect of their lives regulated. not me, not us.

RE: 20K and 2.5 yr fight secures a win over HOA for RV parking

HOA`s should all be banned! Ours is great. We chose this development because of a tremendously picky HOA. They are fussy as anything, just the way we want it. No colored christmas lights, no company (marked) vehicles in the driveways after business hours, parking is strictly regulated, window treatments must be white on the side facing the common areas and Gnomes.... forget about it. We are allowed to have a properly displayed American flag. had an employee whose HOA regulated the size, shape AND color of the garbage cans. super control freaks.

RE: When to check tire pressure. Hot or cold

First thing in the morning the front tires show 100psi about five miles later they show 110psi. Which should I go by? cold or hot. I'm thinking hot. cold. always cold.

RE: Fuel Stops

One thing that wasn't said by those that related using truck fuel stops that might be useful to you is to use the trucker's pumps. Flying J especially would like 'RVs' to use the auto pumps, but those are generally tight quarters for Class As + toads. Pull in with the trucks and you shouldn't have any problems getting in or out of the station. I grant you that the RV lanes are tighter than the trucker lanes but we've had no issue with our 35' class A + toad. and diesel only at the trucker pumps so if you have a gasser, like we do, the RV lanes are the better choice than the auto lanes.

It's better than 8.0.1 but I'm waiting until 8.1. X2 on that. I don't understand the rush to upgrade to a new OS. experience has taught me that there are always bugs that need to be worked out. God bless those of you who like to 'break trail' but count me as one guy who doesn't mind being behind the curve a bit.

RE: Pictures on walls

Have a 2007 Winnebago Voyage 38 J . Would like to change some of the pictures on the walls but don't know how they are fastened. Need to know how to take them down without messing up the walls. All advice will be appreciated... probably Velcro. that's how the pictures on the walls of our 2000 Itasca suncruiser were fastened when we picked her up back in 2000. the larger pictures had 4-pieces of Velcro, one piece at each corner. I carefully slid a butter knife between the frame and wall until I felt the Velcro and then worked the knife between the pieces. i was able to get all of the Velcro off the walls and replaced them with the 3M Command strips which hold just as well but come cleanly off the walls.

RE: Fuel Stops

Has anyone had a problem finding a fuel stop that you can pull into with a 33ft class A Gas pulling a dinggy four down.Thanks in advance. jp nope. we have a 35' class a towing a jeep. we primarily use truck stops (Flying J's RV lanes) but even when that's not possible we haven't had any trouble. I look for pumps where the lanes are parallel to the building as that does make it easier to pull in and out.

RE: Generator runs but no power?

Hey Everyone I have a 1999 Sea Breeze that I just bought. 1 problem I have is when I bought the RV the owner showed me everything but I retained very little. My other problem is I can start the generator but get no power to the RV? With the cord plugged in to the gen. If I plug the cord into the house I get power to the microwave, AC ect. But when I plug the cord back into the outlet on the generator and start the gen I get no power to the RV. Ive checked fuses I can find & nothings tripped? There has to be a switch im missing since when the previous owner walked me through he started the generator and everything worked? What am I missing? there should be at least one and maybe two circuit breakers ON the genny itself. check there.

RE: Social Security question/ help please if you know

One reason to start drawing your social security pension earlier is you could be dead by the time you draw the max you can draw!... is there a max??

RE: Social Security question/ help please if you know

I think people need to quit thinking about all this break even magic. If you can afford to wait then wait and get more. If you cant afford to wait then start taking it when you can. Should the posters respond to the original poster's questions? Tom first off it's not magic, it's math. and secondly, knowing and understanding your options is a part of good financial planning.

RE: Social Security question/ help please if you know

we both took our SS early at age 62. the males in my family tend to die early so that was a factor in my decision. I also did the math via a simple excel spreadsheet and found that my breakeven point was somewhere in my 80's. we are both comfortable with the decision. ask yourself: do you need the money? I mean "need" the money? can you live your desired lifestyle without it.?how is your general health? any chronic issues that might tend to shorten it? if "yes" to either I would consider taking SS early.

RE: HELP! Insurance expiring Oct 1st

I was wondering if anybody takes the time to read the policies from the different companies. From my policy with Nat. Gen.: What types of affiliates and non-affiliated third parties do we share information about you with? Financial service providers, such as, credit card issuers insurance companies and insurance agents. Non-financial companies, such as credit reporting agencies, manufactures, motor vehicle dealers, retailers, direct marketers, telecommunications companies, airlines and publishers. (it goes on) All I wanted was insurance, not my info going out all over. federal law requires customers be notified of the company's privacy policy annually. virtually all of the notifications I receive provide a method...usually a call to an 800-number answered by a robot...to opt-out of information sharing. I would argue that it should be an opt-in process but opt-out is better than nothing.

RE: NPS Drone Ban

What makes a drone different than an RC plane or helicopter? Most of these so called drones are no different in design and are operated within line of sight. I think the gov't is using this as an excuse to come up with new regulations that aren't needed. A true drone is operated remotely and guided via GPS (and typically carry hellfire missles). Classifying a hobby aircraft as a drone is a stretch. I don't even think FPV aircraft wouldn't fit the drone classification unless we're just going by the looks of the aircraft and not the actual function. precisely.

RE: HELP! Insurance expiring Oct 1st

My insurance is expiring Oct. 1st. The premium is $744 annual with Progressive. $500 deductable and a $30000 agreeded value. Sure seems high. Who do you recommend? Good Sam? Alstate? Any help appreciated. if you're not fulltiming it would be worth your time to get a quote from state farm.

RE: CW $59 install (read the fine print)

If you don't like it, move on and don't shop there. Very simple. precisely. when we need RV supplied we shop at CW...most of the time.

RE: CW $59 install (read the fine print)

That's been discussed here before. Seems that most of the time that $59 hits just over a hundred bucks. More of Marcus Lemois deceptive marketing. how is it deceptive if the additional fee is spelled out in the ad?
