RE: Cool Mods - Thread restored 10/18/2012

So??? How much of it do you need? $12 or $16 should buy all you need. Not all that much... unless I make a mistake like this... Seems I wasn't paying enough attention when I cut the first (stained) piece... and cut it with the back of the railing showing... instead of the front. And not having enough rail left over to recut... I had to go back to Home Depot for another stick.:S ================ Ah yes, what's that old saying, " measure twice- cut once". Been there done that... :B Or in my case...damn I cut it twice and it's still too short.............:S

RE: What kind of screw head

I was thinking along the same way that Sue was.....that if it was a 8 point screw than a Robertson screwdriver might just work.

RE: Strangest thing asked to borrow

We pulled into a KOA late one night and a man from England (I think so anyway based on his accent.) stepped out of the shadows from a rental RV to borrow a corkscrew for his bottle of wine. We don't drink and never carry anything to open those kind of bottles; so I guess he spent the evening without his wine. :( A wood screw and a pair of pliers will do the job:B or a stick and/or something else suitable to push the cork into the bottle.

RE: Handy Hints, Gadgets, Products & Gizmos

As for the drawers opening during travel. When we installed our new bench seating with full length drawers we didn't realize, until we went on our first trip with them, that there was no mechanism in place to keep the drawers closed. So, both drawers were doing the dance down the road around turns. Solved that by getting the child safety catches for drawers. They are spring loaded and clasp when you close the drawer. A simple reach through the handle opening to release them is all that is needed. Now the drawers stay put. We had that problem as well. I just made up a short bungee cord with 1 1/2" "S" hooks on either end, hooked it diagonally across the face of the drawers and voila, no more problems......

RE: Is this camping?

Sure it is. the best thing about this hobby is the diversity in how/where we do it and the gear we use. No one is right or wrong as long as they have fun doing it their way. We totally agree. To each their own.

RE: Advice on where to stay in the SD Rushmore/Black Hills area

I really enjoyed Big Pine Campground when I was at Rushmore last summer. Great campground, very woodsy and secluded, and the staff was friendly and accommodating. Another vote for Big Pine campground.

RE: Handy Hints, Gadgets, Products & Gizmos

I do. I have a small one and large one. They are just a great item. Never knew that there was a model # for them.......should of known though...as anything that is used in the military would have a model #.......lol......one thing is for sure, they made the design right the first time cause there isn't any mod # behind it, such as A1, etc.........

RE: Best Route from Oregon (pdx) to Custer SD (MT Rushmore)

My wife and I stayed at Big Pines in 2011 and really enjoyed the campground. Very friendly staff and the sites were really nice, well kept and roomy. We went from Medicine Hat Ab to Havre Mt, spent the night there and then travelled east on Hwy 2 to Fort Belknap and headed south on Hwys 66/191/87 to Billings and then I94 & I90 to Hardin Mt. We spent the night there at Grandview Campgrounds (friendly staff and nice sites)and then the next day took I90 thru to Moorcroft Wy and then took Hwy 16 to Custer. All of the hwys were easy to drive and there was a short stretch at Jewel Caves SD area on Hwy 16 that there was a 6% to 7% grade. Of course it being summer travel, we did hit some construction throughout our journey but that is to be expected. If you like German cuisine, Custer has a great German restaurant, The Bavarian Inn.

RE: Cabinet door - how to tighten catch

If bending the male part doesn't work then just replace the the door latch mechanism - sold at any big box store - not expensive. x2

RE: Whats your favorite adult beverage??

Normally it's beer, Molson's Canadian or Coors Light. At times, it's a Redeye: Beer and Clamato juice. Other times it's red wine or Gibson's Sterling Whiskey with water & ice or a Caesar (Vodka and Clamato). It's all tasty wherever/whenever.........

RE: RV weekend sale!

And now, "The rest of the story":R:@:Z After reading the posts, my conclusion is that the sales man was too busy stuffing his face and was probably thinking, how dare this customer interrupt my lunch break......lol....:B :W
