RE: Dealers ... why, just why

Every time I ever took a coach in for service of any kind I ended up with a far bigger mess than I went in with. There was one exception and I will never forget it. "The Winnebago factory". You could not tell those guys had even been inside my coach and they did major repair.

RE: Large rodent attack leaves me stranded.

I would immediately switch to Butterball turkey. Wild is just too damned expensive.

RE: Yikes! Fire !!

Glad you caught it when you did. I always keep mine off the ground.

RE: Don't be this person--PIC

A lot of the time, not always, the first guy in can set the whole parking lot into to a mess. It gets worse the farther down the line you go.

RE: Don't be this person--PIC

Those rest areas are for everyone that needs a long parking space. They were paid for by every taxpayer. Let's stop the nonsense about who does and does not have a right to park a long vehicle in the rest areas.

RE: Don't be this person--PIC

10-4 on passenger cars using Truck/RV parking. I have seen it many times. My observations have been they are mostly dog walkers. I have seen truckers use the curb space behind passenger car parking. Not a good idea.

KampingKris there is no logic. The mentality, well there is none. Some folks advance with civilization, others just mutate but remain mostly innate. You have not seen the end of them you will run into these Neanderthals for as long as you are on the highway.

RE: Don't be this person--PIC

That very thing happened to me just the other day. The initial individual must have parked just over the line, that forced the next 4 cars to do the same thing. Then I came along,I was making a quick in and out visit, so I parked accordingly, only my line was near a hand-capped site. Man when I came out of the store all the other cars had left, and there I sat about one tire width over the handicapped line. Some guy came up to me and just really exploded, he did not look handicapped in any way, but he came with in a cats whisker of getting his nose rearranged. I finally just backed out and left him venting his spline. The worst part was it was an extra wide handicapped spot and he had plenty of room. Some days your are the dog and some days you are the hydrant.

RE: Don't be this person--PIC

I have met some great truck drivers and I have come across some green stick no it all's that just need to mature. I see the same thing with fellow RVers, some seem to go out of their way to be obnoxious and others would do any thing for fellow RVer or a trucker. I try to remember the trucker is working, and I am on a pleasure cruise. That does not mean he has more driving rights; but I am in no big hurry and I probably am not tired from driving too many miles. Peace be with you.

RE: Never Assume !

You are right one should always check the tire pressures for safety's sake. However, you have something in that tire; in 40 years I have never seen more that about 7-10 lbs drop in tire pressures over a winter storage.

RE: Is it just me?

I have never had the problem after many many years of camping. I do not see how the decompose of a black tank could happen that fast. I have been down wind of a trench type toilet in a State Park and got a whiff or two of it. I personally do not believe in chemicals in the black tank at all, nature takes care of itself. The worst thing I have ever encountered was when (outside the boundaries), of the State Park a farmer was fertilizing his land with animal manure. Now that was very intense.

RE: just 2 observations

I am sure it is a Narcissus thing on the excessive lights. Those folks should rent space at the local Midway of the visiting carnival, but then they want to be seen and you would not notice them at the carnival.

RE: Money and costs.

Being debt free will actually make you wealthy. Just keep it that way and you will always have plenty of money to spend. I have never figured out how people can afford to finance a RV of any kind. You are under water the day after purchase and it just goes on. This is not meant to insult any of you that have financed you dream machine, I just can't see how it can be done. You can tell I am a retired bean counter.

RE: Why are so many rest stops closed?

The states have been eliminating rest stops for decades. Strange situation since most of the population is getting older and living longer and need more frequent pit stops. I know I do. Now you best plan your stops very carefully and hope your bladder cooperates. I am thinking about getting a catheter installed so I do not have to worry about. The closing of rest areas is just a way for government to spend less of your tax money on you, while they build ball stadiums, and revenue generating facilities, you probably will never use.

RE: Mud Flaps vs Brush Systems

I have driven hundreds of miles with both kinds. I consider the brush to be junk not worthy of having on the vehicle. I installed a clear across the back solid flap with 4 inches of ground clearance. It works just great, except when backing in to parking places. Mine was hung on a jointed hanger so it was not too bad even on that. One draw back was: if I ran over a rubber alligator (you are not going to miss all of them). Some will get up under the solid flap and really raise cane before it exits. Never had a serious situation from that however.

RE: Getting the yellow out

Every RV I have ever owned this has happened including refrigerator outside panel and any thing plastic including the rear view mirrors. I found that a light sanding with 00 wet or dry emery cloth and a coat Krylon "Infusion", fixed it for all time. Sure improved the looks. Give it at least two coats, you do not have to wait long for the first coat to set up.

RE: Expandable Water Hose

Buy a good 50ft hose and cut it into manageable lengths. They sell good brass connectors to make your own hose as long or short as you want it. Easy to store that way. I always store hose with the male and female connected so that bugs cannot get into it

RE: Expandable Water Hose

Mine lasted all of 3 times of use in my flower gardens. Then they split and the inside is nothing more than a big prophylactic. It blew apart and soaked me and my guest on the patio. Took it back to Wal-Mart they gave me my money back. They told me they have had to refund nearly every one they have sold. It pays to buy good hoses, they will pay for themselves.

RE: National Marketing Classifieds - Wont stop calling!

If it is a land line most providers will block a number for you. However, the caller may have several numbers they use. These kind of people know all the tricks. I can understand why you do not hang up, it could be a legit caller. You need caller ID. However that is not fool proof either. Your best bet is once you think it is them; hang up.
