RE: Campgrounds around Portland

The one in Wilsonville is "Pheasant Ridge RV Park". Nice place. About 15 miles or so from Portland. Large shopping center across road that includes restaurants, Costco etc. It is right off of Hwy 5.

RE: RV parks in San Jose

I would be a bit leery of this RV "Park". It is really a Trailer park. If you look at it on satellite in Google maps, you can see what looks like mostly live-in spots. If you want a really nice RV park south of San Jose, you might want to check out Betabel RV park. It is a bit south of San Jose on Hwy 101. It is close to Hollister/San Juan Bautista. We have been there several times.

RE: Cleaning the oven?

Geez! After 10 years of owning our MH, I didn't realize that you were supposed to clean the oven. I have always done the stove top, though. I did notice the other day that it look a bit dirty, but I fixed that by closing the door.

RE: Half Moon Bay Road

We love the fog horn!!! Helps us sleep. 92 isn't a problem with our toad. Done it many times. By the way, they sites are at sea level, but you can't see the water from them. That's why we like Pillar Point.

RE: Dometic Refrigerator not cold enough

I was having a similar problem here in Calif a couple of weeks ago. Outside temp was below +30 and the freezer warmed up to +20 degrees. I put in on gas and it started to cool down. Turned it back to electric, fridge temps are again normal, and outside temp is now over +30 degrees at nite.

RE: Tolls on toll roads

I do that too. The first time I crossed our bridge that is 4 miles from my house, it cost me 14.00 with my car in tow. The next time, I unhooked a mile down the road and it was 10.00 (5.00 for each). A couple of months later when we were about to cross, I told my wife that I would pay the 14.00 because I didn't feel like stopping. When I got to the toll booth, they charged me 20.00. They RAISED the rate. Next time, I will unhook beforehand.

RE: Prime Rib?

For those that are Costco members, they have an offer online for a "Wagyu" Prime Rib Roast. Minimum weight is 11 pounds. Cost is only........$1,199.00. That is $300.00 off regular price!!!!! Get them while they last. By the way, that is $109.00 per pound.

RE: Holy Cats, today is my 10th year here!

Just noticed that I joined Dec 1, 2003. I can't believe it. No wonder I feel so much older now.

RE: Help with hot water heater

I think that saying "Hot Water Heater" is a bit of a joke on the forum. It is really a Water Heater. If you had hot water, you wouldn't need a heater for it. I used to say this too, but now every time I see it, I laugh. Good luck with the switch.

RE: Propane Alarm

Dropped a bottle of wine next to mine once and it set it off. I hope I wasn't drinking propane!!!!

RE: Future Trips!!

Just out of curiosity, is it wise to give exact dates that you will be away from your home? Ours was broken into when we were gone, but it was probably because the Motorhome was not in the driveway. Anyhow, the alarm system made them leave in a hurry.

RE: Looking for a GPS addon for my iPhone 5

When we bought the Official Geocaching app 5 years ago, we thought it was expensive for an app. 5 years later,with many, many update (free) it was the best thing we have ever bought for the iPhones. Still using 2500+ geocache finds later. We especially like it when we travel. No matter where we go, all we have to do is hit the button "Find nearby Geocaches".

RE: When is a Geo-cache not a Geo-cache?

When a Geocache is published, it is not supposed to be taken away. It is to stay in place so many Geocachers can find it and sign its log sheet. Otherwise, many people would be trying to find a nonexistent cache.

RE: Dometic fridge getting warmer

How is the temp in the freezer. My Dometic sprung a leak in the cooling unit and was doing the same thing. Had the entire Fridge replaced. Mine was a 2 door unit. A lot of YELLOW powder was coming out of the back vent.

RE: Dometic Fridge Gas Problem

We just had our 2004 domestic fridge Model 2662 replaced. DW was walking by the MH and heard a hissing sound. I ignored what she said. The next day, I was washing the MH and ran water over the outside vent. The water came out yellow. I went inside the MH and it smelled like dead fish. Freezer was up to 10 degrees. Cooling unit was shot. Replaced it with a Norcold. I suppose 10 years plugged in isn't so bad.

RE: Pine Sap Removal

We had a brand new tow car out the first week we bought it. We were camped in some pine trees that were infected with Pine Beetles. I used Mayonnaise. Took it all off. And the mayo just happened to be in my Fridge, and I could also use it for my sandwich.

RE: Bad time for Fridge to quit

Just an UPDATE. I took the MH in to have the cooling unit replaced. They put it in but there were still other problems. A week before they received the new cooling unit, I went in and asked them if it would be better just get a new refer. Well they finally put a new one in. They installed a Norcold instead of the Dometic. When I got it home, I put the temp controller on 9 to make sure that it would be cold. When I checked it, the Freezer was 20 degrees BELOW zero and the Frig was 20 degrees. I have finally lower the cooling number to 3 and it seems to be much better. Still a little cold but not a Deep Freeze. The Dometic would never get below 0 degrees in the Freezer. It was 10 years old. This is what I am wondering: This was one of the Dometics had a recall several years ago because of fire damage concerns. They installed some guard around the gas burner to keep a fire from spreading. I wonder how many other of these Dometics are going to spring a leak and have to be replaced. Dometic should have replaced at the get-go.

RE: First Time Awesome-Gas Grill?

I went through several grills, but finally bought the Weber 120. Same as 100 except it has "Wings" on the side that fold in when storing. Great Grill. Wouldn't mind a large one for the house.
