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.

RE: More about drinking water safety

I have never understood when people say , I won't drink water from my fw tank, but I do brush my teeth and clean my dishes with it. I'm sorry if its to bad to drink why would I use it to brush my teeth and clean my dishes. no logic there at all

RE: Costco Igloo iceless 28

not really a new idea been around at least 30 years. if you reverse the polarity on plug, it will heat 40 deg over ambient to keep things warm

RE: Interesting article regarding computer security

I think it is also funny that people will spend big bucks on hardware, and then use the free versions of maleware protection and anti-virus. the companies that have free versions also sell BETTER versions that offer much more protection.

RE: Can this be removed?

after having a new driveway put in, my previous trailer scrapped the driveway with 1 of the them, I removed it, then had my wife watch while I backed up the driveway, nothing else scrapped or even came close, so I left it off. hurt nothing.

RE: NASCAR rule changes

I thought the "new and exciting" method of qualifying, was boring and stupid. not much fun to watch them sitting in pit row trying to be last off.
