RE: Tire pressure

We do the same as well. We check as early in the day as possible and fill our ST tires to max psi as stated on the sidewall since ST tires are known to overheat when under-filled. ALL tires overheat when under-inflated

RE: Expandable Water Hose

I have 10', 25' and a 50' hard water hose and was thinking a "flex or expandable" water hose would take up a lot less room. good. Just wondering why you need to haul around 85 feet of water hose? You care camping in a 23 foot TT. Maybe try to downsize some of the stuff that you really don't need. Honestly, how often have you had to use the 50 footer? To answer your question...like many others, we have had no luck with the expandable water hoses either. I camp mostly in state parks without water hook up, electric only, and I carry 3 50ft handi hoses,1 standard 10 ft,1 standard 25ft. I use all quite frequently.The handi hoses last quite well, all are more than 3 years ols.

RE: antivirus programs

why trust what they give away free. when they do have a paid version, they know the worth of the "free" version Nonsensical comment. really??? Any company is in business to make money. You don't give away your best product and sell an inferior one.

RE: antivirus programs

Just for the record, I don't use a free doctor, and I don't use a free anti-virus program. Norton Internet Security Suite serves be very well. I also carry good car and homeowners insurance and have used both on rare occasion. Along the same lines, if the AV app offers a free and paid versions, why trust the paid version as the free app uses the same AV engine code base? BTW, back in early 2000, the only time my system was breached with a virus was when I was running Norton System Suite. The malware erased my system hard drive. Not to mention that Norton was heavy on PC resources, and nearly impossible to cleanly uninstall. Switched over to free anti-virus protection, AVG at that time, and have never had any of my systems taken down since. Norton has made vast improvements since those days, and now rated among the top of paid AV apps. why trust what they give away free. when they do have a paid version, they know the worth of the "free" version

RE: I need a good disposable glove solution for dumping

What kind of gloves do y'all use when you use the restroom??? When you flush the toilet in a restroom there is not a 30 gallon tank of raw sewage behind it! :W I don't put my hands in the poop, I just hold the outside of the hose, when finished, I wash my hands with soap and water

RE: Help removing city tree blocking RV/Trailer parking.

I guess nobody read where he said "It prevents their 32' 5th wheel from being able to get in the BACKYARD."not where it is presently parked. I can see where that would be a big problem.

RE: Idea for simplified water tank heating -- need your advice

Water that has been boiled will freeze quicker as a lot of oxygen bubbled out , not much , most high school chem class will show ! but your water heater doesn't bring water up to the boiling point, if it does, you have a problem

RE: Paper maps vs GPS

it's not about accuracy, it's about flexibility. Rather than following the GPS which may take you over 2 lane windy mountain roads, you can stay on major highways by using an Atlas or take shortcuts that others have recommended. I also use online mapping like Google Maps and Mapquest. Online maps and GPS's have 2 options - shortest or fastest routes. Sometimes you need a combination of both. Also RV settings on GPS's use truck routing which takes you out of the way sometimes resulting in more mileage. actually that is not true, if you really know how to use your gps and all its features it will do what you want. your can program "avoidances" like toll roads, dirt roads, etc works like a charm

RE: Water filters

we never use a filter and we do drink from our fresh water tank,which we fill up at the campgrounds. never had a problem, have on occasion had water with a sulfur taste, but it won't hurt you.
