RE: We crossed the Canadian border Wed. 24 May

Along with CA, NY, and IL, Canada and Mexico are places we will never visit again. Too many rules that don't agree with our life style.

RE: Bad receptacle installation by factory - potentially unsafe

I replaced the cheap junk self contained outlets with real residential outlets in a box. The idea that electricians and inspectors are part of the process is not the reality in the RV business. I have searched and searched and can not find any U.S.A. made duplex. I did find a couple of good made in USA used at a thrift store. May someday we can find new ones made in the USA.

RE: tire

In all of my 61 years of legal driving I have NEVER concerned myself with what surface my tires were parked on. When a tire/tires go bad (7years),wear out etc, I replace them. I imagine if one did a bunch of research one could figure out a way of getting 100 miles or so more on a tire but that would take way too much time from the years I have left above ground.

RE: Converting from full size bed to two singles

As we got older all we were happy with was twin beds.

RE: Shortest Class C Recommendations

I think I posted this somewhere but my 22' is actually 25'10" O/A. It has 17' of flat floor space before dropping down (Approx 8")to the cab floor. Twin beds in rear and plenty of storage inside and out. Perfect for these two old geezers.:) It is the 2200TB. Clicky

What Satellite services are available

We are looking for something cheaper. Presently, we are paying: $116.00 for his and her dish network setup. $85.00 to Windstream for house phone and Internet for Computer. $72.00 for our two cell phones. 3G $273.00 TOTAL Question: Is there anything lower cost than that available with no Home wiring. Want it for home and RV. BTW, we only use phones for talking----no texting, etc. We can do without home phone but need some type of Internet wireless service. We are probably stuck with DISH Network. I'm not all that tech savvy so use the KISS rule (Keep It Simple Sam). Marvin

I had not seen this before the advertisement but they claim hundreds of dollars cheaper, somewhat quieter, and more features. Marvin

RE: AT&T Cellphone AMP for 3G

I have a WILSON amp that MIGHT work.. (not sure since my phone is multi-G) Not sure if the more modern 4-G boosters will work either.. I will likely get one of those soon. NOTE: if you are in S.E. Ga... Removing my Wilson amp would not take me 30 minutes and then it's your Wilson Amp. Thanks for the kind offer but I think we better upgrade. Marvin

RE: AT&T Cellphone AMP for 3G

The Smithsonian may be wanting to get in touch with you. They are always looking for past outdated items. :) I've already donated my Abacus and sundial.:B I guess we update the phones. At least my Mavica MVC-FD73 still works fine. Marvin

RE: Weak Campground wi-fi signal

Nope. It's only as good as the system they are using. You can't make a space ship out of a Volkswagen. It's best to just depend upon your own WIFI, like your Iphone or SmartPhone hot spot. Pay for a decent plan and then you'll not have any problems. Ha, HaVW Spaceship

RE: Make Your Own Tire Changing Tool

Tiny toad need trailer to haul that stuff. Half the time the llanteros (yawn TEHR ros) tire men curse when their impacts hammer bit do not turn and then grab their own version of Newton's Persuader. Usually three feet on length. This will do the job. MarvinManual helper

AT&T Cellphone AMP for 3G

The wife and I have 3G flip phones and sometimes we get no service and then move around a bit and get a weak signal. Is there any AMP that will boost for us? 12V or 120V, it doesn't matter. will use it at Home and RV. If you can help, fine but we aren't going to upgrade to 4-5G at our age. I no longer buy green bananas.:D

RE: Make Your Own Tire Changing Tool

OP, I thought for a second that you were going to place the end on the ground and put the tranny in drive or reverse and let the engine do the work.:B Marvin

RE: Harvesting water from air: dry camping gets moister?

The chew on a cactus bit is a farce. I eat cacti at least twice a week. Called Nopal. Use a squeezer on 500 lbs and get a gallon of bitter slimy liquid. Nopal cactus fruits SPINY! contain lots more liquid and hundreds of almost undetectable seeds. The fruits are called "Tunas". Never BS about the fishing to the people who live along the river. I used a smiley-----Too bad there isn't a "Tongue in Cheek" smiley. Wonderful water from a cactus plant. Marvin

RE: Harvesting water from air: dry camping gets moister?

If I'm stuck in the desert with no water I'll chew on Cactus until I can MacGyver myself back to civilization.:)
