RE: Tybee Island or Jeckyll Island? Thoughts or comparisons?

I wouldn't go to either. The color of the ocean water is terrible compared to the beaches much farther south or north. All the estuaries draining out taint it a brownish color and the water is not clear. Jack L

RE: Bathroom Medicine Cabinet Ideas Needed.

I took mine out and replaced it with a much larger one that I got a Lowes. It has three mirrored doors and much more space. Jack L

RE: condensation on windows

What I usually do is put a small electric heater on the dinette table with it blowing at the window, and it clears it up. Jack L

RE: newbie,want to buy a old popup trailer,is it safe?

No one mentioned it, but my biggest concern would be the Wheel bearings. I would automatically inspect and regrease them before using it. Many years ago I had an old pop-up that I bought and converted it to carrying our eight kids bikes. While we were on the highway one of the wheels came flying off. Need I say more! Jack L

RE: Cleaning & sealing a membrane roof

Some will disagree but Acetone is one of the best cleaners. Make real sure it stays on the roof or it will take paint off the sides of your RV. You are making a mistake. Acetone is a solvent and is used to soften sealants for removing them. Jack L

RE: Cleaning & sealing a membrane roof

We do it once a year using spic and span to clean it, (the liquid-the powdered is abrasive) then we use 303 protectant. Last year we had one area where the AC units discharge seemed to be wearing it and we used Heng's rubber roof coating. the surface must be cleaned before using it, and then it can be brushed on or rolled on.

RE: pet fees?

Soooo, does this mean if a pet fee is charged, I do not have to pick up the poop???Yep. And if enough people follow your lead, soon the pet fee will be gone.....along with the park's policy of allowing pets. ..Thats what Perriwinkle Campground in Sanibel Island, FL does. They have a rule, NO DOGS ALLOWED, period. That rule pretty much eliminates the issue, and makes for a much more quiet, cleaner, and more pleasant experience for campers. :) I just made reservations for there (Perriwinkle), we're going to be down there for a whole week this spring. Really looking forward to a whole week of not having to hear everyone else's dogs barking, or seeing dog poop laying around. Will I'm with you all the way on that one. I would pick a rv park with a no pet law any day over one that allows them. We love dogs, but not in camp grounds and rv parks where every one is close together, over the years we have been barked at too many times and had too many unpleasant experiences with people allowing their dog to do it's business on our site while we are sitting there with the attitude that it is perfectly OK to do that.

RE: TT or 5W

Do you bring a lot of stuff? I could not have a 5th because we bring so much in the bed of our pick up. I have a cap on it, and we carry two kayaks and a canoe on the roof. We carry two mountain bikes plus all kinds of back packing camping gear in the bed -Need I say more. Our trailer is a 25 footer, and we have never had a wind problem or wind current problem from the big rigs in thousands of highway miles. Prior to this one we had a 19 foot trailer, and never had problems from high winds, but I did have to hold the wheel tight for a few seconds when a big rig came by at 80MPh. I bought a new Dodge Ram last year, and the whole system is rock solid. Jack L Just my two cents! Jack L

RE: Almost back

My All-State "Your in good hands" tale of how the hand opened up and dropped us. We lived in Mass for many years and never had an accident. We then moved to NC and had to get a different insurer since the one we had in Mass didn't do business in NC. We had always seen that ad "your in Good Hands" with All state, so we picked them. Two years went by, without a claim, and then one day in my yard, my vehicle slid on mud and I dented the fender. We had $100 deductible. The repair cost $189, so I paid the deductable and All state reimbursed me the $89. About three months later we received a notice that they were dropping us. This was a long time ago, and since then we have received ads in the mail to go with them. Needless to say I won't, and I relate that story to everyone I know when they are thinking of getting a new insurer. I wonder how much money All state has lost because of the way I was treated ???

RE: Winterizing City Water Inlet Question

A simple way to protect the check valve in the city water inlet is to just use an eyedropper and put some pink antifreeze in the filler hole. Jack L

RE: Craiglist buyers...scratching my head...

It is standard procedure to dicker on a price on Craig's List unless the seller states that the price is firm. What irks me is the amount of spam that some idiots play around with. They think it is a game to lead a seller on and then disappear. If someone asks me if I will come down in price without any other questions or comments about my selling item, I don't even bother answering them. I know it is a spam Jack L

RE: Today is the day

Welcome to the club ! "The bride" and I hit our 53rd this past July, and after eight children and sixteen grandchildren we are happier then ever. A lot of posters jumped on me a year or so ago here when I made the statement "that I believed in love at first site". I'll always stand by that our love was at first site even though we went with each other for five years before we got married Also for some of you young folks; make sure she is your best friend. That is what solidifies it. To this day, we do everything together, and never want to be very far apart from each other. The love just grows and grows! Jack L

RE: first time winterizing, questions

Another thing: Use an eye dropper and put a bit of pink stuff in the city water connection. If not the check valve is liable freeze and then leak. From one who learned the hard way! Jack L

RE: 12v AIR Compressor -What is good

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I just ordered the MV50 from Amazon. I was going to order the Viar, but the particular model that I want/need is almost twice the cost of the MV50 which has the same specs. You all have been a great help Jack L

RE: 12v AIR Compressor -What is good

Where do you buy the Viar one? I saw them all on their site, and have a message to them requesting a quote. I need the model 300P since I absolutely need the one with battery clamps and also the long air hose. Jack L

RE: 12v AIR Compressor -What is good

MV50 works good for me. $60 on Amazon. How long have you had your MV-50 for and does it get much use ? Jack L
