RE: Hershey Show thoughts

Bumpyroad, sure hope that salesman did not take himself seriously. He is in the wrong business.

RE: Learned something new about camping....

You think oak trees are bad, try parking under a walnut tree. My BIL had his vent lid shattered in the middle of a rain storm with walnuts. Never again.

RE: Blow Lines or AntiFreeze, or both?

I always do both blow out and 1 gallon of anti-freeze. Micro droplets of moisture in the lines after blow out can reform into droplets that will fall to the lowest point and freeze, breaking or cracking a line, usually in the most impossible spot to get to. Do not forget to allow a little anti freeze to exit your outside shower hose and head. I lost one that way. I do not put anti-freeze in the water holding tank, the HW tank or the waste tanks. Never had a problem.

RE: thank you, thank you

It's a great feeling when some one who was helped comes back and lets us know their results and thanks some one for the help. I realize none of us expect to be thanked, that just makes it nicer when some one does it.

RE: Why?

A ladder was the only good way to wash the windshield when seasonable camping in Florida with its miserable pine dust. I used it for a lot of things. I preffered it to the built in ladder on my class A. It was great for cleaning debris from under the slide out covers. Mine was on loan a good part of the time to people that did not carry one with them.

RE: Flex garden hose

I have not been able to get the pocket hose to last for more than two weeks with just occasional use. Two have blown up on me so far. The interior of these pocket hoses is nothing more than a gigantic prophylactic covered with a chintzy cotton cloth. I have been using a coiled "White" hose for more than 10 years and it is still in service daily. The only drawback is I can't find them in a larger ID than 3/8".

RE: Entry Door Window, how do I get privacy at night?

You just do not have a problem. They sell venetian blinds that fit RV doors, they also sell nifty little roll up blinds that attach right to your door. They have Bali type accordion style blinds that will fit your door in hundreds of different shades. They all roll up out of the way or pull down to suit your needs. They are never in the way.

RE: What is the dumbest thing you have seen while on the road?

This is not necessarily stupid. We have all had this happen at some point. I saw a woman driving a 36 foot Class A through the busiest thorougfare in the city yesterday with one of her cargo doors wide open. It was the kind that opens left to right. There was a roll of paper towleling attached to the door and of course it was completely unwound trailing her down the boulevard. It was a matter of time before she struck some one with that door, it would be serious if it was a motorcycle. If I could have gotten into traffic where I could have caught up to her, I would have warned her. There was no way. Back in the days of CB's I could have tried to reach her. Normally the air movement would have closed this door, but it had a stay open latch on it. A design error. q

RE: A peeve of mine.

Yes - Yes - and Yes on Campfire time's post. Here lately I am being cut off way too close by OTR truckers. I will signal him when I think it is safe, after all I am the one being passed. I notice here lately when another 18 wheeler is in the passing lane and one truck passes me, he will cut back in with only inches to spare so as not to impede another trucker. I don't care anymore what their schedule is. Life is short enough and death is long. I really don't think these guys, OTR truckers, are being inconvenienced that much by the 4 wheelers or Rvers any more. I think most of them hate their job and simple carry a bad attitude around.

RE: A peeve of mine.

I have noticed less and less big rigs flashing thanks for indicating they are clear. So I quit doing it myself. I hate that, as it was a nice road gesture. I guess with all the cameras on these rigs now days you aren't really doing any one a favor to signal clear.

RE: A peeve of mine.

I am with Corkey 05. I get stressed with traffic behind me on a narrow road. I am always sure one nut is going to break out and pass. He could damned well take us all to the morgue. I am never in that big a hurry. Life is short death is long.

RE: 50A Idea

No. It will not raise either your amp or voltage. All you are doing is converting 50 amps down to 30. Let me suggest putting a second service drop from the available 20 outlet into your RV from it to a dedicated receptacle. Then your wife can use the additional 20 amps. Keeping in mind the 20 amp service must be on a separate breaker, most c/g's are today. I have been doing this for a number of years w/o a hitch. It's great for space heaters in cool weather also.

Good tips, will try them all. Thanks.

RE: How old and still driving????

I am 81 and feel as good and fit for driving as I ever did. No I don't push the limits like I used to. If I feel drowsy or even find myself un attentive to the highway I pull in and take a nap. I am good as gold after that. 400 miles is max for me today, it was closer to 600 in a day. I have seen guys get out of huge diesel rigs that could hardly walk when they hit the ground. They were truly disabled physically. I will never do that. You are no older than you feel. That is an Axiom of life.

RE: Portable Room AC on Sale

I have 57" tall sliding windows. (slide from side to side) not up and down. Does any one know if the exhaust spacer will accommodate windows of this design?

RE: The ideal GPS route

Tyrone and Gladys. I have tried that on mine and it will not take me to the town unless I enter a street address. I do not have any street addresses in that town. What do you do to get around this?

RE: The ideal GPS route

I am as bumfuddled as the rest of you with GPS routing. Many times I do not need its help until I am in unfamiliar territory. However until then I am amazed at the poor routing instruction I am given by Garmin. They can add many unnecessary miles to your trip if you follow them to closely.
