RE: Fridge use with no elec during emergency?

Big box grocers sell "dry ice" it will get through most emergencies.

RE: What to do with water filters between trips?

This a probably one of the most important conversations on the forum. Nothing you do will effect your life like the water you drink, cook, and bath in. It could kill you. So what ever your preference is to how you handle the filter, be sure you handle it. Use a good one, change it often, take no chances. After seeing what was in mine after 3 months on a municipal water system. I am sold on their effectivness.

RE: What to do with water filters between trips?

I definetly agree with mlts22 after a season of occasional camping dispose of the filter. I spend 3 months in florida and at the end of the stay, I pull the cartidge and it is loaded with ground sea shells, flotsom of one kind or the orther and it goes in the dumper. After all they are not real expensive items so why take a chance.

RE: Alaska mud

I have used the oscillating lawn sprinkler under my Class A' to get rid of road salt in the winter. I works very well. You may have to move it back or front a couple of times, but it will to the job.

RE: What to do with water filters between trips?

This is a good question. Myself, I came on this delimma many years ago. I use a whole house filter that contains a cartridge. I pull the cartridge and soak it in a strong solution of Bleach and water for several days, then air dry it on the clothes line. I poor bleach and water in the cannister and let it soak for a few days. I place the cartrigdge in a plastic bag, and seal the cannister with just a little bleach in it. So far after many years I am still here.

RE: Ceiling fan

I betting it is 110v. It should state right on it what voltage is.

RE: Thank goodness for Good Sam ERS

I have an Nephew who is in the towing business big time. He does the heaviest semi trucks to the littlest case. I ask him just last week which ERS provider he thought was best. His answer surprised me. He said none of them,they call every tow outfit in your area to haggle the best price, while you are left setting on the side of the road to wait. He has different trucks for different job depending on the difficulty of the tow; including size and weight. He says they always want him to use his cheapest vehicle even though he said it would not do the job right. So he said it is best to deal direct with the tow operator direct and then bill your insurance provider. Of course we all know that will not work well when you do not know who can do the job. He claims RV's are his biggest business.

RE: Sometimes it's the little things...

The satellite dish set up the first try is almost like a trip to Shangrila. It does happen occasionally, but most of the time it is a headbanger. I feel so sorry for my poor wife when the thing does not go well. Then I usually find I forgot to do one important step. My wife will put that step on a check list for the next time, then I forget a different one. Time for my medicine.

Around here the person who owned the animal is liable for all the damage if his animal gets out onto the right away. I also feel bad for the Horse, he was just being a horse. We are all animals.

RE: Verizon plan changes!

S/T uses one of 3 carriers that are strongest in your area. MyS/ T uses verizon almost all the time. Also with the new Verizon plan - you must pay full retail price for you cell phoneqy

RE: Laminate Floor S****ed.

It should be a warranty problem, 8 days and you have damage. This means something was not done right at the factory.It is going to keep on happening unless what ever it was fell out or was displaced. I can remember when slides first came out there were a lot carpet tears due to misalignment, screws being left under the slide, on and on.

RE: Your definition of quite time (sp)

I cannot talk quietly nor can I hear quiet talkers. So when 10:00 pm comes around I retire inside my coach, close it up and watch TV with ear phones or go to bed. What do I need to say after 10:00 pm that I could not have said all day long. It just takes common sense to be a good neighbor.

RE: water on slide toppers

I tried the beach ball approach and it worked, except water accumulated on either side of it, so now two puddles instead of one. Then I bought the largest swim noodle I could find and slipped it in from one end, standing on a short ladder. It worked just great. Just remember to remove before you leave or put your slide in.

RE: Stealth Camping

I am not going to claim it doesn't happen. However, a number of times we have stayed in just this type of c/g. Some where on the premises was a kiosk of some sort that you could leave your check in payment for an over night stay. There was always a sign on the office door that advised of this arrangement, along with a list of the rules.

RE: A 3rd Insurance Issue It Might Be Helpful to Know About

Yes insurance companies do not like un occupied homes. Great point to make and probably most people are not aware of.

RE: Things I have learned from these forums

Funny, I found all these same things in church. Must be a humanoid thing.

RE: Rocky start to 2 week vacation - crash and more

You obviously are a very good driver, a lessor driver would have panicked or possibly steered into the truck you were passing, now would that have been terminal!

RE: Marcus? Camping World? GSRA? -- um.... disappointed....

What you think of the other guys post should not bother you. He has a right to his opinion even though it may not agree with yours. His experience may be and probably is entirely different than yours. Remember these are forums.

RE: Marcus is coming to town

One thing for certain, he can't do much worse than Tom ****r and sucessors did. Like stripping used coaches of generators etc and then trying to sell them back to you as a buyer plus installation. One guy actually followed up on his trade in to see how much stuff they stripped out for resale later. I guess there is no law against it, just shoddy business practice.
