RE: MidWest TC/F Gathering in IOWA 4/24-26/15

Attendance was light but I still had a great time. We were going camping anyway so we figured we might as well meet new people and get new recipes. Thanks again for the invite! Anytime you camp in this area and want company let us know and we'll see what the schedule holds.

RE: Netflix Buffering

I have a Samsung Smart TV and it buffers non-stop with Netflix and Amazon. I only have a 5MB download speed. What I have found out though is the Samsung app is much to be desired. My Roku streams it just fine. I don't even use the smart features on my TV anymore.

RE: Garmin Dezl 560LMT GPS

You might want to call Garmin directly. Two times now I have traded in my old for a new one at a discounted price. They were both defective in some way. I'm not sure what your situation is but simple phone call couldn't hurt.

RE: will dealer let you test tow TT?

I requested a test tow and so did my father (two different dealers). Neither hesitated and set us up with a WDH to tow with. In my dads case I knew he wouldn't like it and that it was too heavy for his truck (despite the dealer saying it would be fine). We drove it to a CAT scale and weighed it. He didn't buy the trailer. In my case, I bought the trailer and eventually upgraded my TV anyway. Today we are both happy campers. Pun intended.

I mentioned this to her last night at home. I think she is on board. See you soon.

Snap traps don't always work , have seen many - many where they nibbled the peanutbutter, baloney etc right off the trap and not set it off. Glue boards with a spot of PB in the center works everytime. One set of mice can have a colony in a matter of weeks ,they are just like roaches they contaminate and spread disease ! So simply by catch and release , you are doing no good for yourself or your neighbor (or whoever wherever you let them go ) I have discovered that adding vanilla extract to your traps along with / or instead of peanut butter works great. They love that stuff.

RE: MidWest TC/F Gathering in IOWA 4/24-26/15

Hey that's very tempting. We are planning on going to the Underwood Chicken Dinner that weekend but maybe we can look into making that work out too. We can call it our Spring shake down trip. That would be great. Chicken Dinner at a specific resturant, or Staley's putting on a chicken dinner over there? Were you guys from? We Live east of Harlan. We will be in site 8 and in our 5'er. Easier to just pull that down and leave it sit there since we only live 8 miles away. That way I can use the truck for work. Let us know if your coming so we have somewhat of a head count. midwesttruckcampers@yahoo.com I spoke to her about it since then and she was all over it. So I think we'll make a serious attempt to get out there. Do we need to make reservations? We live outside of Underwood. I saw the Chicken Dinner deal in the rocket and thought it would be fun. http://i.imgur.com/Z8fIw8hl.jpg I'll have to see if I can get more time off. I'm not sure how that will work out as I have a unique circumstance (which I can explain later).

RE: Arkansas

...unless you're on a Goldwing...then HWY 7 is the bomb! :P Can't wait to get back down there.

I use this Fresh Cab Stuff in my camper and so far have had no signs of mice in the RV. I also remove all food from my camper or store in containers. I have to do that in the house too (I live on an acreage). I use glue traps in the house because the tin cats aren't as effective there.

RE: Considering RV hauling; need some advice

I have also thought about doing something like this. I'd do it if I was retired and wanted to travel...sadly that's not the case. I have seen folks remove the backseats in their trucks and put beds in. Sadly, I don't remember where I was reading about that. Does that help almost none? :) You could also look into mounting a generator in the truck and run that A/C in the camper. I know mine ran all day and into the night and never came close to running out of fuel. That was after the freak hail storm. I'd bolt it down so it can't roll off (if you know what I mean). My two cents FWIW...

RE: Garmin got stubborn

(like Betty the white zone lady) Now THAT is funny! :) One time at work, a new employee heard me say "and don't call me Shirley!" She immediately called her husband to tell him that she had actually heard one of the Pharmacists say that. Yesterday (and today) they were (and are) installing new carpet on the steps and walked out and said "looks like I picked a bad time to quit sniffing glue".

RE: Anyone else ever say, "I'm never buying another RV?

I did...sorta. I'm not buying another camper until I get a shelter built. I've lost two now to hail damage. Those things are so fragile. I'm loving the life style but am years away from full timing it. I love reading the stories from those that are there now.

RE: Garmin got stubborn

I think it's a matter of time before mine develops an attitude (like Betty the white zone lady). She keeps trying to make me flip U-turns when I don't follow her instructions. She keeps her cool though and eventually we see eye to eye. She doesn't hold any grudges. What a nice lady. Having said all that, I still think Garmin has the best product out there. Having the lifetime maps option is very nice and if it ever fails they give me a good deal on an upgrade. You might call them and inquire. They will work with you.

RE: Just ordered a Go Pro!!!

I got an e-mail the other day that Movavi was on sale for 50% off which makes it about $25 or $30. Just get on their list and they'll eventually discount it for you. I does good for video editing imho...the screen capture is nice too.

RE: Slow grey water draining

If it is just from normal use and is full of hair or other similar normal obstructions this stuff is amazing. Pour a few cups down and let it sit overnight. They sell it in a bottle enclosed in a zip lock bag so it's easy to find. Use it once about every 90 days as routine maintenance if you want to. http://www.amazon.com/Instant-Power-Grease-Drain-Opener/dp/B001LRKKPQ/ref=sr_1_54?ie=UTF8&qid=1427734560&sr=8-54&keywords=drain+cleaner

RE: BSOD with smiley face

That sounds like a display driver issue to me. Are you using an after market video card or something on the mb? I would start by trying to reinstall the drivers. Here is some reading that might help too. http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1656824/atikmdag-sys-error-bsod-startup.html
