RE: Tragedy leads to no camping at Cottonwood, AZ Walmart

It appears this family had at least six people capable of holding down regular jobs. Since they're living communally anyway if they pooled six minimum wage jobs they'd have over $40 an hour coming in, probably enough to get an apartment and live a settled life. That's how Mexican immigrants in Chicago end up owning apartment buildings. I wonder what happened to the house in Boise, ID they got through Habitat for Humanity. UPDATE: Arizona police officer shot in melee with Boise family at Wal-Mart expected to be OK

RE: Alaska's Brown family

First of all, there was no "safety issue" that forced them to flee. A neighbor (yes, they were not exactly in the "remote location" portrayed in the show) that was tired of the camera chopper buzzing over his house lit off a few bottle rockets. As I recall, the FAA was not pleased and he was eventually fined. Here's an article from last year about the incident and the show; Digging for the reality behind 'Alaskan Bush People' claims of gunfire Six members the Brown family have also been charged with Permanent Fund dividend fraud and felony theft in connection with false statements on their applications. Tip from outside Alaska led to reality star fraud charges

RE: Airbus Reinforced Cockpit Door Description

Have the pilot on the ground, if we can send a drone half way around the globe, we should be able to steer the future aircraft the same way, no pilots on board they are on the ground, where the powers that be can replace them if they want to do something stupid. All there is on board are passengers and cabin attendants, all guidance is relayed by satellite with encryption so that it can not be hacked, no public access controls no cockpit. navegator The only flaw with that is the fact that most of us are not going to get on a robot controlled plane. I think the bigger flaw is that the "drone scenario" lends itself to more events like this, not less, since the "pilot" would not have to sacrifice his own life to accomplish the mass murder.

RE: Airbus Reinforced Cockpit Door Description

Place a porta potty in the in the jump seat for the pilots to go potty, no more lone pilot in the cockpit! Simple solution to a complicated problem, and once the pilots are locked in they do not leave until they are at the gate with engines shut down. Any passengers that need to be dealt with, air marshal may shoot them! navegator The two person rule is a much simpler solution.

RE: Do you pull a trailer behind your Motorhome?

Two potential issues with the overall length would be campsite availability and individual state length limits. Several states limit the total length to 55 or 60 feet according to AAA, severely limiting the allowed trailer length behind a 40-45 foot DP for instance.

RE: Clearance

We drove up I-77 yesterday from Columbia, SC to Ft Chiswell, VA. Of the half dozen or so semi's that passed us and were flashed back over, two sent a "Thanks" with a couple of 4-way flashes. Of the half dozen or so semi's we passed, three flashed us back over and got thanked in return. It does seem to be less prevalent now, particularly among younger truckers.

RE: Rubber bumper ends

Back when we had a 4" bumper to cap, I replaced the standard caps with a pair of these insect resistant caps. As well as keeping bees, etc, from nesting in the bumper, they stay in place very well and have to be squeezed to release them.

RE: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. tabs appearing!!!!!

Log in to the RVParkReviews forum and complain about the sidebar, or use the "Contact Us" form. The site owner is testing it to see how we like it. So far, the "nays" are winning, thankfully. Right after it appeared, I asked that it either go away or at least be made a user preference option.

RE: Have you meet someone like this?

While fueling up today at a Flying J, a fellow with a Ford F-250 work truck fueling up on the other side of the RV island pump told me I was going to burn up my engine by running regular gas in a diesel. When I pointed out the "Triton V10" emblem on my coach, and the same emblem on his truck, he told me I must have put that on there because "Ford doesn't make a V10 diesel." And they breed! :R

RE: Front Diesel - Rear Gas?

I don't understand all the loud noise from a gasser? I guess a lot of RVers drive in complete silence? Try having a conversation when the clutch fan kicks in. You have to yell to be heard by the person in the other seat. I wished for colder days so the natural convection would be enough to cool the rad. Doubly bad when you're pulling a hill in a lower gear and the fan comes on. I don't know what coach you have but my wife and I routinely hold normal conversations while underway under all conditions in our F53/V10 powered Landau. Can we hear the engine? Certainly, but it isn't loud enough to be an issue. I don't know if a previous owner added any additional sound insulation, but this coach is much quieter than our previous F53/V8 powered coach

RE: Airbus Reinforced Cockpit Door Description

Germanwings/Lufthansa did not adopt the two person cockpit rule. Yes, it appears that NBC News misstated which airlines adopted the rule.

RE: Propane fill question

My RV dealer said he will fill up the propane 100 percent if you want. How does he propose to bypass the OPD that shuts off the liquid flow at 80%? It's called an "Overfill Prevention Device" for a reason...

RE: How to Get the Stink Out of Bathroom

Check the air admittance vent valve under the sink. It screws onto a PVC stub and has a rubber check valve in it that can get brittle with age and fail to seal properly. Replacements are only a few dollars at most home improvement/hardware stores. The black and grey tanks usually share a single vent, so the smell could be coming from either one. Yes, grey tanks can smell as bad, if not worse, than the black tank.

RE: ? About digital thermostat install

My original Duo-Therm mechanical stat tied both wires together when high speed was selected by the switch. I haven't tried hooking just the high speed wire to the terminal to see what would happen. Here's the diagram that gets posted frequently for the Hunter digital conversions. It can also be used for Honeywell digital conversions: http://i.imgur.com/EKwtNRRl.jpg width=350

RE: Airbus Reinforced Cockpit Door Description

Personally I'd prefer a rule that requires a second person always in the cockpit. According to the TV news tonight, the airline has immediately adopted the two person cockpit rule. US flights were already required to use the two person rule.
Dutch_12078 03/26/15 05:43pm Around the Campfire
RE: ? About digital thermostat install

Yes, that's the correct hookup for the high speed fan. I added a small toggle switch to our Honeywell stats to control the speed.

RE: Google visits Michigan

A Google camera car toured the roads at Myakka River State Park in Florida while we were there a couple of weeks ago. I'll be checking the Street View after awhile to see if our rig and site show up. I wonder if they had to pay the day use fee to get in... ;)

RE: Filling Up at Gas Station--Class A Gasser

As you become familiar and more comfortable with your coach, you'll find that evaluating possible fuel stops becomes somewhat automatic. You may even find situations where the tail swing can work to your advantage. A couple of days ago, I pulled into a large BP station on Route 17 in South Carolina to gas up. The pump islands with three pumps each were aligned towards the store, but I could see that the right end island would give me an easy exit out past the side of the building to a rear exit. There was already a car at pump 1 though, and as I pulled in, a pickup pulled up to pump 2, leaving only pump 3 available, but without enough room to pull up. The fuel filler is at the left rear corner of our coach, so I was preparing to wait my turn when the pickup driver started unload 5 gallon gas cans to be refilled. The bed of the truck was filled with at least a dozen of them. Now not willing to wait him out, I pulled up a bit out from the 3rd pump, and then swung out past the pickup, letting the tail swing bring the filler port within reach of the pump. About $150 dollars later we were on our way, and the pickup driver was still filling cans.

RE: Airbus Reinforced Cockpit Door Description

If the switch is in the "NORM" position, the external keypad can be used to request entry to the cockpit or to override the lock. If it's in the "LOCK" position, the lock cannot be overridden. Not all Airbuses are equipped that way, but it seems evident that this one was.
