RE: RV Resorts vs Campgrounds

Usually, a campground is short term camping with little amenities. A safe place to park, relax and use for a home base to see the sights. A resort is usually for longer term stays like in Florida/Arizona/Texas...snowbird spots. They offer many amenities like wood working shop, lapidary, entertainment, tennis courts, bocce ball, pickleball, etc. They attract snowbirds to entertain and make them come back year after year. Most go by a monthly rate but will take a few week or less RV's.

RE: my toilet is backed up

Stuff happens...but almost always, people new to the RV world do not use enough water. Look how much water is used when you flush a toilet at home...by the time the tank is full, you should have 2/3 water and 1/3 "stuff"...the force of all that water trying to drain sucks out stuff and keeps if from getting hard. But the problem now is getting stuff out...usually a sewer service comes out and hooks on to your fitting and sucks out almost everything. Then when empty, add about 20 gallons of water so you have a small lake to let things pile up. When you flush always let lots of water gointo the toilet. Keep the paper useage down...no big wads of paper..use 1 ply paper so it will disolve easy. Live and learn

RE: I can't get my local channels on directtv

You have a service address & a mailing address....The mailing one does not change....but the service address is where you are parked. You have to change the service address and call DTV to get locals where you are parked...If you travel full time, it's $5 a month to get locals where you are parked...otherwise you can get east coast and west coast feeds for ABC, NBC, CBS, etc. If you are in Wichita, Ks and plug in the Ks zip code, you will get Witchita locals, not Denver...but when I was in Ouray, CO, I got Denver locals as it was the closest to where I was parked

RE: Help with a TV

I'm sure the fifth wheel will weigh 16,000 - 18,000 at minimum. The least you should go is a 1 ton, diesel dually. Everyone will be suprised if they take the trailer to a scale and actually weigh it will all your "stuff" onboard. Always better to have too much truck that too little. Especially once you go out west and hit the mountain grades

RE: directv question

If you go online and into your Directv account, there are two addresses..first is your billing address...second is your service address. Billing is where the bill goes to...service is where you're parked. Every time I move to a new location, I have to change my service addess. Then for an extra $5 a month, you can get the local channels where you are at..it will not pick up your home channels. You will get the major channels from the closest city..Been doing this for 9 years and works fine.

RE: Pinhole leaks in sewer hose - what to replace with?

Don't let your sewer hose lay on the ground...little sharp stones & pebbles will poke holes...either get a slinkey to lay it on or cut a section of PVC in half so your hose can lay in it to protect it

RE: Cooking and drinking water

The majority of public campgrounds have water that has been tested and complies with health standards...there are times where odor & taste is there but safe to drink...yes it is....add a whole house water filter so all water coming into your camper has an added filtration to cut down on odor/taste & sediment

RE: A firearm for my B

Way too many laws and restrictions to carry a weapon....buy a can or two of bear spray...you can carry it into Canada and every state. It can stop a charging 1000 lb bear instantly if charged while hiking. So if someone tries to break into your camper, hit the spray and not the gun...it will stop them, give to plenty of time to get away and not be arrested for firing a weapon wherever you are...safer around kids also

RE: Fulltime and woodworking

What's nice about a woodshop at a better RV Park...yes, you pay more to camp there but the amenities are wonderful...lathe, wood shapers, band saws, chop saws, sanders, sharpening equipment, table saws,and a wide assortment of hand tools...

RE: Fulltime and woodworking

Most winter campgrounds in Arizona, have many activities for the winter snowbirds. Lapidary, silversmithing, quilting, many crafts as well as a well stocked woodworking workshop. Spend your winter months creating and making unique items without having to haul all those tools with you....check out amenities of winter parks...woodshop will be one of them

RE: Older 7.3 diesel owners F350 - need advice

I own a 2002 Ford, 7.3, DRW with 204,000 miles..pulling a Designer Legacy, 36', 15,000 lbs....as full timers, we've pulled all over in the Rockies, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, Arizona and many more. It pulls just fine and would not hesitate taking off to Alaska with it. Keep up the maint., oil changes, etc and you will do fine.

RE: Workcamper News

We subscribed to Workamper News for about 4 years and never received a job from it...upgraded our resume every 6 months....you have to figure there are several thousand people seeing the same jobs you are posted....they get hit from all sides with applications from all over. We have always done better contacting a campground ourselves. Pick an area you would like to be in, find out all the caampgrounds in that area...send each one an inquirey along with a picture of yourself....Large campgrounds have more openings for single workers than small mom & pop type. Check out the large KOA just west of Mount Rushmore...they hire over 100 workers each year...pay is what you're looking for also

RE: Black Tank Build-up

Put about 20 gallons of water in the black tank...dump a bag of ice cubes in the tank...take off and drive. The movement of the trailer bounces the ice cubes all over breaking up waste. The ice melts and when you stop, hook up the sewer hose and eliminate the build up...flush the tank and ready to go again. When traveling, I dump ice cubes in to clean tank...the tsnk is clean, ice melted by the time I get to the next campground.
