RE: I need a Facebook solution please....

I use Chrome and don't have the shut down issue but I'm REALLY thankful to know how to turn off the auto play vids!

RE: flemington nj campground

Looks like there is one about 17 miles away. Mountainview Campground 131 Goritz Rd, Milford, NJ 08848 (908) 996-2953 I don't know anything about it and it's not listed on RV Park Reviews.

RE: Used Allegro RED?

Thanks! I did join the Tiffin forum and there was a lot of info. It sounds like Tiffin is fixing any of those problems at no charge. It would still be a hassle to arrange and get to Red Bay, AL though.

Used Allegro RED?

We've "just looked" at several new coaches and based on our use, cannot justify the price! BUT we have "just looked" long enough to find a 2010 Allegro RED that is easier to rationalize. ;) I understand this was the first year Tiffin made the RED but comparing them to the '14 models, the only difference is the wheel base (slightly longer in the '10) and length (about a foot longer in the '14). We've not yet seen this coach but have talked with the owners (they are the original) and it seems to be well maintained and has been garaged when not in use. The engine & tranny are the same in the '10 as the '14 so there must not be any serious problems with that combo. We are comfortable with the Tiffin quality and after emails & phone calls, our gut feelings tell us the owners are honest but maybe we're really incredibly naive.... :h Has anyone heard of problems with the 2010 or 2011 Allegro RED?

How Many of a Model Are Made?

How many of a particular model DP are made? Do dealers order what they think they can sell and then those orders are filled or do the manufacturers build what they think the dealers will want? We've seen a lot of the same model tag alongs at dealers but it seems as the price goes up the number out there goes down. Can you guess what our weather is like today? If you said windy, cold & snowy, you'd be right. I'm bored and ready to do some camping.

RE: RV Washing Machines?

It seems that the majority of those with W/Ds love them. In the coaches we're "just looking" at, two have the Splendide 2100XC and the other has a Whirlpool stack. If we got past the "just looking" stage, I thought I'd just have the W/D taken out but I think I've changed my mind now.

RV Washing Machines?

We keep telling ourselves we're "just looking" >>sigh<< BUT the ones we're "just looking" at have either the stack W/D or the W/D combo. My question is what does one wash in them? The ones I've seen look like they'd maybe be able to wash a couple of pair of socks at most! Are they really worth the price, loss of space, water usage and humidity in the coach?

RE: Route Advice Needed for Vernal, Utah Area

hmmm..looks like we'll be traveling through Dutch John! Now, I need campground suggestions for the Flaming Gorge area. Thanks!

Route Advice Needed for Vernal, Utah Area

We'd like to visit Dinosaur National Monument after Salt Lake City via US 40 then take US 191 north toward Dutch John and eventually getting to I-80. According to Mountain Directory West US 40 looks doable but 191N around the WY border looks problematic. We will probably make the trip in our G'town gasser towing a Jeep Wrangler unless a DP materializes in our drive. An alternative plan after Dinosaur N.M. would be to go back to Duchesne then take 191 south to where ever we decide to go next. To those that have traveled the Vernal/Dutch John area, what are your thoughts about 191N? Thanks!

RE: Back when camping was camping

Like many, I started out in a tent on cross country trips from KY to CA with my parents. Our tent was an army surplus treasure that weighed about 500lbs and since I was the oldest, I got to help my dad set it up. After waking to a 6" snow in Yellowstone one year and having to break camp, we made our next trip in a pop up. The pop up went away and a house boat appeared which isn't all that different from an A or a C class! I showed quarter horses for several years and for a couple of seasons we had a Winnie Brave. Many years & 1 husband later, I finally convinced my DH that he really wanted to camp. It was a long hard fought battle but I won out and we started out in a B+ but have a Class A now. And I WAS right! He likes to "gamp!". LOL!

RE: Residential fridge and boondocking

I asked a sales person that very question at the RV show in Louisville, KY this year. He said about 24 hours. I would imagine that would vary by several hours depending on the outside temps, how often the fridge was opened and what was in it.

RE: Canon T5i opinions?

One can never have too many cameras or lenses! I've already been scoping out what lens to add and checking out flashes. I think I'd like the ones that can be tilted or detached and placed away from the camera. I've never done a lot of indoor pics because of the flashes. The SL1 is quite a bit smaller than my big honkin' Olympus and so far I do like it a lot! I'm contemplating a lens extender to add to my collection. They are less expensive than a lens but still pricey and I have no idea how they affect the photo. Another research project. I've also looked at adapters so my Zuiko ED lenses could be used on the SL1 but I'm not finding any. I'm finding plenty of Zuiko OM to Canon EF but no ED to EF. This weather better break soon.

RE: Dog owners!

If dog owners who leave their dogs in their RV all day while out touring and their dogs bark none stop all day while they are gone are made aware of that when when they get back. What do the dog owners do about it? This was the original question! (I'd forgotten!) IMO, the obvious answer is don't leave your dog in the RV all day while out touring or take them with you. Other options might be: find a day care kennel, wear them out with lots of exercise (amazing how exercise eliminates a lot of bad behavior, thundershirts, herbal calming solutions (questionable). This thread is a hoot! There are so many hilarious comments mixed in with the cranky old fart comments.

RE: lost my campin buddy

I am truly sorry for your loss. Making the decision is so very difficult and letting them go is heartbreaking. You two sure made a lot of great memories though!

RE: Canon SL1: What Memory Card?

Matt, Thanks for the info and I love the idea of putting contact info on & identifying the chips! What great ideas that I'll start doing ASAP. I tend to keep pics from trips on the chip and buy a new chip for the next trip. As soon as I delete a pics from a chip, I wish I hadn't.

RE: Dog owners!

GordonThree.. "look down your nose"? HUH? Of course, one has to put up with a lot of stuff at crowded campgrounds that we wish we didn't have to. Being able to bring pets to campgrounds IS a privilege. National Parks, BLM, Forestry CGs, State Parks, and private parks "let" us bring our pets. They don't have to. Those that don't follow the rules in place for pets put ALL pet owners at risk of having that privilege snatched away.

Canon SL1: What Memory Card?

I finally ordered the Canon SL1 with the 18-55 STM lens and went ahead & got the 55-250 lens with it. My question is which card from the compatable ones would be the best choice for stills & vids? From the Canon website: Recording Media SD card, SDHC card, SDXC memory card * Compatible with Ultra High Speed (UHS-I) and Eye-Fi Cards. * Eye-Fi card compatible I use the SD & the SDHC card with my Canon P&S but it is a 12 megapixel. Is there a preference? Thanks!

RE: Dog owners!

We seldom leave our 2 boxers alone for more than a couple of hours if that. I've asked neighbors when we return if they heard them and the answer has always been "no". We have a Class A and will pull the drapes across the front window but leave the side windows open and some neighbors have reported seeing them sitting in the seats looking out the side windows watching the activities. My sister's dogs will bark for a few minutes after she leaves but then settle down till she comes back and the barking commences again. We've been camped near barkers though and it is not pleasant. One couple apparently knew their dog barks so cranked up the radio pretty high so not only did we hear the dog, we heard their radio. Thank heaven's they like the same music as I do. Every dog is different and each situation is different. I can't promise my dogs will never bark but I guarantee I correct them each time they do bark in a campground no matter what the reason. What I don't get is why owners ignore their barking mutts and do nothing to stop them. Many times, they're the same ones that think their dog doesn't need to be tied or leashed AND also seem to think their dog's poo doesn't need to be picked up! I see being able to bring my furkids to a campground is a privilege and not a right. I do not want to do anything or let my pups do anything that would result in the privilege to be taken away.
