RE: Winnie Factory doesn't know something....

The T-bar wrench supplied for the wheel covers is not capable of a lot of torque. Hand tight snug with the supplied wrench has always worked for me. I haven't lost one yet.

RE: coffee 'Therma Carafe'

what puzzles me is that they keep hot things hot and cold things cold, but how does it know? bumpy It doesn't... I tried putting hot coffee and cold lemon aide in mine at the same time. Didn't work good at all. ;)

RE: coffee 'Therma Carafe'

We have a Thermos brand Airpot carafe that keeps coffee quite warm for 7-8 hours.

RE: Doc told me I'm overweight.

I walk 4-5 miles as often as possible, but when other commitments or weather get in the way, I have a couple of walking in place workout DVD's I use.

RE: email privacy

For one agency I do some document editing work for, we email sensitive documents as dual password protected PDF files, compressed as password protected TAR BZ2 files. The passwords are sent in separate text messages.

RE: Doc told me I'm overweight.

My doctor would comment on my weight during my annual physicals, but I just shrugged it off. Then I was asked to help an ambulance crew carry a morbidly obese 380 lb neighbor out of her house for trip to the hospital. 18 months and 90 lbs later I was down to the 165 lbs I weighed in my early 20's in the Army. I have deliberately gained back about 15 lbs since then though, to reach a weight that's more comfortable and easier to maintain. Gaining the weight back was actually harder than losing it, since I was constantly trying to balance muscle mass gain against body fat. My weight loss plan was really pretty simple. I call it the "ELEM" plan, "Eat Less, Exercise More".

RE: Registration Fees!

Vehicle registration fees are one area where NY State is actually quite reasonable compared to many states. Our 34' Class A for instance, as are all non-commercial motor vehicles over 6950 lbs, is just $70/year paid every two years. NY has no personal property tax, although there are some counties that collect a vehicle use tax and/or mass transit fee at registration time. Those are only $5-$30 per year though.

RE: A question about campground reservation.

The KOA online reservation system doesn't allow site specific selection, although you can request one in the "Special Instructions" section with no guarantee you'll get it. The Escapees RV Club reservation system for their parks is similar. For the most part, it seems to be a space management issue that gives the park better flexibility in fitting various size rigs in the most efficiently.

RE: How can I tell if I have reception / parked trailer

There are a number of smart phone apps that overlay the phone camera view with the satellite positions that can be used to check for interference from trees, etc. I use the "DishPointer" app from DishPointer.com, but there others nearly as good. https://i.imgur.com/kiKxI2El.jpg

RE: Best digital amplifier for existing antenna

By the way; I picked up 63 channels with one search last week in Lac Qui Parle State Park near Montevideo MN. Just the right condition with rain clouds, and just after sun-set. Of course most channels dissapear after clouds move out. How many channels are received reliably is what I suspect most of us care about in a given area. Not the odd atmospheric bounces that serve no real purpose beyond bragging rights...

RE: Need some help with Reserve America???

Since Florida isn't the only state with parks that can be difficult to book on ReserveAmerica, I really don't think it's a state specific issue. Popular parks in NY and other RA states can be just as hard to get into.

RE: Automated call screening feature to block automated dialers

My wife and I use the "Call Control" app on our cell phones, and "NoMoRobo.com" on our VOIP pseudo landline service. We very rarely receive any spam/scam/telemarketing calls.

RE: Screen door latch mod

Our coach has the "grommet and stick" setup that a PO installed, and we've found it quite convenient. It appears that the PO may have glued the "stick" in place, since it doesn't move out of position.

RE: First time happening

I've seen a number of RV's over the years with bin doors open going down the road and attempted to alert them. I really wonder sometimes why they don't notice them when they check their mirrors...

RE: Re learning to drive a motor home.

In a DP you sit in front of the steering wheels and gas rigs you sit behind the steering wheels. Geometry has changed and you brain has not adjusted. Not exactly... I'd say a gasser has the driver sitting more over the steer wheels than behind them. I've never had any problems adjusting from one to the other. https://i.imgur.com/q5jUhZ7l.jpg width=400

RE: Re learning to drive a motor home.

The key to refueling a long gas rig is simply to plan your exit before you commit to entering the pumps. I usually favor end island pumps if the station is a little tight. I've never been in a gas station I couldn't get out of, and never had to unhook our toad to do it. Once in a great while I've had to wait for someone that came in and illegally parked to move to safely get out though. You'll get used to allowing for the tail swing eventually.

RE: Adding exterior shower

I added an outside shower to a previous Class C. I located it between two studs under the bathroom sink, making the water hookups pretty simple using push-on Watts PEX connectors. I made the opening cut by drilling the four corners with a hole saw sized to match the new box corner radius, and then connecting the holes with a fine tooth blade in a saws-all. As always, double check the dimensions and layout before cutting...

RE: Handy Hints, Gadgets, Products & Gizmos

There's a tag plastic wire tied on the power line where it feeds into the meter box at our NY cottage. It was put there by the power company when we upgraded our service in 1989 and the ties still look good to me.
