RE: Spell Check - a remedy

BTW, if you are using Chrome you can set the language used for spell checking in the advanced settings. Just saying... ;)

RE: RV Park Review deferred

We went there for a family gathering, so had a bunch of kids from toddlers-to-teens. Since they had booths set up with "samples" - we just told the kids to stay in our site and NOT eat/drink anything that WE didn't prepare....LOL! Mentioning these facts (the booths with "samples") would have been better that mentioning that the CG was now owned by a "Medical Marijuana Support Group" and been far more informative. I was told by some lovely girls who apparently attended the camp weekly, that the new water heater had "been there for weeks, but nobody had installed it yet". IMO, that shows a general lack of maintenance - not simply a bad weekend. Although second hand information this would have also helped with your complaint about the hot water. Although I suspect the previous change would have been enough. :D So anyone who reads the former RV Park Reviews about this place, will be expecting a wholesome, family-friendly experience that caters to church or family groups. Boy, will THEY be surprised. An extremely good point. I would encourage you to change your review and get it published for just this reason. I know it's something I would certainly want to know prior to making (or not making in this case ;) ) reservations.

RE: I built a clear black tank and tested the Sewer Solution

I voted, but I'd like to see ALL of them tested!

RE: What age to replace tires?

The tires I had on the MH started going at 6 years. They were NOT covered and used only a few times a year for the last several years prior to the blowout. The tire that went was the one that received the most sun. Interestingly the spare was 16 years old (a Michelin) and was fine for several hundreds of miles after it was put in use. It was stored in an enclosed area in the MH. I replaced it when I replaced all the tires, but I'll bet that it would have lasted longer if kept in the enclosure. I cover the tires now, and get the MH out at least every other month to condition the tires.

RE: Any wet firewood tricks?

Google upside down fire. Thanks for that. I will HAVE to try that next time! I tried this on our last camping trick and all I can say is wow! Almost starts itself, just need to light a single piece of paper and your done. You do need to make sure you have the right amount of kindling, but that's it. Burns nice and hot, much less smoke. The fire will burn for hours unattended. We also used less wood. I'll never build a fire "right-side up" again. :D

RE: I built a clear black tank and tested the Sewer Solution

Ah yes, a test of the GEO method would be interesting to a larger population and cheaper to do. ;) Change my vote to GEO method test!

RE: I built a clear black tank and tested the Sewer Solution

Very nice video. You seemed to be channeling your inner Mike Rowe! ;) You are great on camera and I look forward to more videos. I vote for a Flo-jet test next. BTW, the tank in my class C is more like yours on its side. It is taller than it is wide and has LESS of a pipe going to the slide valve. :)

RE: When do you sign your final papers?

Good for you. I am glad to hear that you got what you deservied. I have always thought that allowinv credit checks to neg affect your credit should be illegal. It orevents credit compition.

RE: Using an anchor

Chains will typically work, but they are a real mess to put on when buried to the axles in mud. Guess how I know.... :E

Business, sure. Business operates under a whole different set of rules.

If it wasn't for thread hijacks I'd have nothing to read and respond to. :p

RE: Don't try living off the grid in your own house!

Interesting. I'd bet that almost no one knows about this and even fewer pay it. The web site you doesn't even give an easy way to determine if it is required. Just some examples. There is a link to a 60 page document that would require a significant investment in time to understand. Bottom line, this law is not enforced for individuals. Should it ever be enforced, it will likely be repealed as 90%+ of people in California are guilty... BTW, I was still correct, sales tax is NOT required on Internet purchases, and sales tax collection is a requirement of the seller.

RE: Any wet firewood tricks?

After considerable study and sophisticated testing, researchers under contract with SBA at the Forintek Canada Corp. Eastern Laboratory in Qu├ębec and the Minnesota Natural Resources Research Institute (MNRRI) in Duluth, MN have determined that there are no additional VOCs released from OSB when it is burned or placed in a landfill than what is released from solid wood. Therefore they have concluded that OSB can be safely disposed of in either manner. Sounds like burning OSB is perfectly fine...

RE: Don't try living off the grid in your own house!

...but the issue to me is that the city is basically at fault for having that apparant "LOOP HOLE" there... Now I see where she might be "thumbing her digits" with there bag in the bucket... But even here if she isn't "BREAKING ANY LAWS" who are we to impose our subjective standards on others. Yes, the city, etc. is at fault for not having a billing method for her use. But governments rarely take responsibility for their mistakes, that privilege is left to us citizens. I'm pretty sure that disposal of human waste in residential trash is illegal, but I guess one never knows... ;)

RE: Don't try living off the grid in your own house!

...that actually must keep track of everything they buy on the internet and take the time to comply with the LAW they are saying one must follow and send that yearly check to their state/local governments paying the "SALES TAX" that is required on all those purchases where they are not charged the state sales tax :W Sales tax is not always required on internet purchases (at least here in Kalifornia). And it is the responsibility of the seller to collect it when it is required.

Worked GREAT in mine. I'd post a picture but it seems that I can't get to my older photobucket pics. :(

RE: prohibited tunnels "propane"

The statute claims no bottled propane gas in excess of 10lbs. Propane on our Motorhome is in a mounted tank, like a gasoline tank, not a propane bottle. I bet a lot that the tank in a MH is "bottled" propane as far as the statutes are concerned. The pressure vessels that trailers use are called propane cylinders (not bottles). BOTH are "bottled" propane.
