RE: Outdoor mosquito net?

Get a Therma cell. They absolutely work great. You can get one in Wally World, Home Depot or Bass pro shop. We use ours in the Florida Keys and the Everglades NP and you can sit outside all evening Jack L

RE: 2014 dodge 1500 newbie

I am hauling 26 foot, 5000 pound travel trailer with the same truck, and have no problem at all. I have a cap on the back of it and carry two long sea kayaks with a 17 foot canoe between them on the roof. I also have the bed loaded with all our back packing and paddling equipment. It tows it much better then my old ford F-150 and I am getting 2 to 3 MPG more than I got with the Ford . . My last trip with it was a 2000 miles one and I averaged 10 MPG and most of the time never felt the trailer behind me Time will tell, but right now I am a happy camper. Jack L

RE: Kayaking is like RVing

Jack we don't paddle anywhere near as much as we like to. Rivers/lakes get very crowded near us during the summer and shoulder seasons are busy times for us or have weather issues (i.e. spring didn't come until well into May). My Subaru was always "racked up" but that's gone and our pick-up sits so high that the racks become problematic with height if we take it to the gun range. That was one of the things we missed most about our pop-up-the ability to take bikes and boats with ease. We'll be up your way in August. Not quite as far, but in Duxbury, and we'll have our two sea kayaks and our 17 foot canoe on our Suburu. We'll be racing the kayaks in the "Great river race" on the North River in Norwell, and then paddling in and around Plymouth. We will also be doing some training in our canoe for the Adirondack 90 miler that takes place in up state NY in September. Life is good ! Jack L

RE: Kayaking is like RVing

You must not paddle very often ! As hard core paddlers, our racks stay on both vehicles all the time. Our RV'ng is based on our paddling location, and our tow vehicle is rigged so we can carry two long sea kayaks with a canoe between them. Jack L

RE: Size of generator ?

Thanks everyone. I was thinking a 2000 watt one would do the trick. It is not to run any AC unit. Just to run my circular saw to build a garage in an area where I don't have electricity. Jack L

Size of generator ?

RE: Bottled water vs not

We use bottled spring water for drinking and the camp ground water for everything else. Our home water is spring and we hate the chemicals and or taste of anything else Jack L

RE: White wine storage temperature: 45 deg. or 65 deg??

I am no expert, but from my experience. Wine in that price range will turn sour in about a years time no matter what temperature you keep it at. Jack L

RE: E-Z Lube Axles

I would like to hear of one instance where someone had to replace a bearing or had a failure because all they used was the EZ lube method. In all my years here on RV.net, I have never heard of one Jack L

RE: E-Z Lube Axles

I love my EZ-lube axels ! Who ever says it does not save time and money has evidently never used them. I am on my second trailer with them, and grease them once a year. Saving time: I just jack each wheel and then squirt the grease in until the old stuff comes out. Saving money: one tube of grease will do more than four wheels: All I can say is HOGWASH I have used them and have even done a fairly good analysis and documentation of exactly what is involved ... something I doubt you have done. Just do a search on "E-Z Lube" and my username in posts over 12mo old to see my detailed posts and how these E-Z Lube hubs work and what is involved in using them properly. Unfortunately all the detailed pics I took aren't there since they were hosted on Webshots before that system was abandoned and I haven't seen a need to redo them in photobucket. I just peaked at my prior posts on this and I guess one clarification is that back in 2010 or so when I did my analysis I came up with about 1/3 of a tube per hub so it will take upwards of 2 tubes so I embellished the amount somewhat in my last post. I'm not one to adhere to the once a year inspection, but more along the line of around 3 to 4 years and a good hand pack of the bearings with a good quality Moly fortified grease doesn't require any additions like using the E-Z Lube option so THERE IS NO TIME SAVINGS and because of all the additional needed grease to fill the hub cavity is simply wasted grease AND WASTED MONEY .... Thus I content the FACT IS THERE IS NO TIME OR $$$$ SAVINGS in using the E-Z Lube option on our trailers ... end of story:p When and if I ever have a bearing failure, I'll come back and tell you, but the first trailer was five years old when I traded it, and this one is now six years old FWIW I owned my last trailer from 1982 to 2007 and now this one from 2007 and in those 32 years have done all my wheel bearing maintenance and have also never had a bearing failure. Jack L All I can say is I am glad you corrected yourself on the quantity of grease that you conveniently told wrong. and I'll gladly stick to my much easier and quicker method. Do you use that "hog wash" to clean your bearings too ! Cheers, Jack L

RE: leaving house empty

if you have someone winterize home make sure they will be responsible for any freeze damage. our plumber said he wouldn't do dish washer or wasing machine-guess what dish washer didn't survive have to have repairmen come fix watwr valve & drain we did run machine w/water off & poured rv antifreeze in draain still froze haven't tried washing machine almost afraid to.we have done this 2 years & no problem till this year. we do turn heat completrlt off as i can't stomach 3-400 gas bill That is very odd. Our dishwasher is a Kenmore and our Washing Machine is a GE, and I know for a fact that they freeze and thaw constantly throughout the winter months while we are snow birding, but yet we never have had any damage in the past twelve years that we have been snow birding. We live in the high country of NC and this past winter broke all kinds of records for below zero weather, yet when we came home everything worked fine Jack L

RE: Have you removed your roof antennas?

Yes, I removed ours three or four years ago, just because of that and also because we don't use it. Jack L

RE: Candles in RV?

We may be in the minority, but we burn candles like this real often. http://www.ourhns.com/12000s/12832.jpg width=300 If you are in a minority, we are in it with you. Our evening ritual prior to supper is some cheese and crackers or equal with a glass of wine. The candle going on the dinette table, with some good quiet music in the back ground while we rehash the fun we had during the day. The only difference is we use a three wick candle. If others frown upon it, that is their problem! Jack L
