RE: How many Nova Kool owners does it take tochange a light bulb

I have a NovaKool but the converter had the sense of changing out the light with an LED. Maybe I will not encounter changing.

RE: where are the "B" people?

You haven't lived yet until you start a discussion about carrying a weapon for self defense in your RV on this forum. You would have thought that I had advocated raping their sister the way some folks lost their cool. That is why I no longer post anything on the Good Sam Forum. Little minds are not my thing. There are too many other RV forums out there. I don't see how it's related, but I'm not surprised to see that kind of response. Its a heated topic like religion, politics, abortion, with half on one side and half on the other. I can see why some forums put those discussions in their own Topic to keep it segregated from the more mainline topics. And yes, I have lived through those discussions, in many flavors, in many forums! Now I just avoid the topics ;) Oh, and I just though of this last night. The ideal way for me to travel would be to have a Class B towing a fifth wheel. I would park the fifth wheel say in Sedona for a month, then use the Class B to travel around in AZ, NM, TX, etc on one day or multi-day trips and use the fifth wheel as home base. Then move it to Utah for a month or so, and do the same. Then Wyoming, Colorado, etc. all across the country. Ideal, but I haven't seen a Class B that could tow a fifth wheel ;) I don't want to have to give up the Class B when the wife and I full time because its so useful for those short trips, urban exploration, festivals, day at the beach, etc. And I don't want to backup and move a fifth wheel, large motorhome or trailer every couple days either. Please learn how quoting works before editing. I did not say what you quoted.

RE: where are the "B" people?

The discussion is about the North American market. However, buses are generally built off of an engine/chassis but no cab combination usually after market. It would be commonly accepted in the North American market as a Class A no matter what the size. Of course there are exceptions. Even the term van gets bastardized in definition.

RE: Campground Theft - Chapter 2

I had my orange occupied cone with my engraved name on it stolen. I've had few problems in public campgrounds but am extra cautious in private campgrounds that have permanent seasonal or work campers. Those people are aggressive scavengers.

RE: sleeping quarters on a class b

Twin beds and fixed platform beds gave way to electric sofa/beds about a decade or so ago as they proved popular with multi-purpose functions as well as offering legal front facing seat-belt seating. The problem with them is in a Class B they were inconvenient as beds in getting in and out of them crab crawling or scooting to a narrow aisle spot at the foot of the bed. Twin beds are making a resurgence because of that I think. Advanced RV developed a new innovation in the electric sofa/bed. They created a collapsible fold away center seat section in the sofa so when their tri-fold design converts into a bed there is a section at the foot where one can easily get out of bed similar to a twin bed set up. So you can get the best of both it seems. Here is there video demonstrating it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=59sPU6vFdDs

RE: where are the "B" people?

At one time RV.net was THE place to go for Class B discussion. It has since been eclipsed by the many Class B groups on Facebook. Also, another independent forum for Class Bs has grown under new ownership with much increased activity. It really is that simple. BTW, there is nothing blurry about Class B or B+. Simply think Class B originates from a VAN chassis and a Class B+ originates from a CUTAWAY chassis. You can argue about where you think you belong but no Class B owner wants to hear people coming on this forum putting them down for lack of size, space or bathrooms with separate showers, etc. If you can't handle owning a Class B just remember RV.net has a subforum for you in the Class C forum labeled Class B+. Also, Class Cs (or B+ if you insist) outsell Class Bs by about 8 to 1. Numbers bear out if discussion is allowed it would quickly no longer be a Class B Camper VAN forum. If you don't believe that look at the semi-competing Sprinter-Source forum where the Unity type Class C talk dominates Sprinter RV discussions and it makes it difficult and confusing to discuss issues that seem generic in nature but not applicable to Class Bs.

RE: Leisure Travel Vans.....little help please

The Unity is not a Class B. Discussion and questions about the Unity belong in the Class C forum.

RE: So much for stealth

Driving down to the liquor store to buy a six pack is recreational use to me. :)

RE: Where do you put your lawn chairs

I carry two Pico Xpress chairs for general campfire and visiting activity but also carry two zero-gravity lounge chairs for total comfort. Our loungers pack conveniently behind the beds upright in space that would not be used otherwise previously in our Great West Van Legend and now our Advanced RV.

RE: Corrugated floor insulation foam board

Foam boards are commonly sold at artist supply stores for using as poster boards. You still need to put down plywood screwed or bolted through to the metal floor ribs. The suggestion to use Dynamat or Hushmat is a good one, It is a black rubberized sheet of about 1/8" thick faced with aluminum foil. It adheres to the metal surface and you follow the ribs rather than bridge them. It makes for great sound deadening as well which what it is primarily for.

RE: Replacing TV

I'd post photos but for some reason RV.net does not accept my Photobucket photos and I am pretty sure it is an RV.net problem because I just posted some photos in another forum. My bottom panel was screwed in with Robertson head screws. It is recessed a tad and there is no way you see it unless you put your head under the cabinet and look up. Once you remove the bottom panel you have to reach up and unscrew two nuts and then pull the TV monitor out. I posted some photos of all this some time ago in the Facebook Pleasure-way group.

RE: Replacing TV

The 2004 Plateau had a fixed cabinet and the TV was actually an analog computer monitor with a TV tuner. They didn't offer the swing away cabinet until 2006. I replace my TV with a digital flat screen mounted on a wall swing arm. To get the TV out you have to remove the bottom closer panel. It is screwed in. Then you have to reach up and unscrew two bolts that hold the TV in. Coincidentally those two bolt holes were exactly the spacing for the wall swing arm bracket.

RE: So much for stealth

In Minnesota there is no disguising the plate. Motorhome plate numbers start out with "RV 0000". Not complaining though. License tabs are quite a bit less expensive than regular automotive tabs.
