RE: RV Park Reviews

Is there an app yet for this? A real app, not that other thing they used to have?

RE: pull-forward sites?

the small campground just North of Baltimore has some motorhome only, pull in sites overlooking the bay. I have also seen "buddy" sites where RVs in adjacent sites park so that the patios are facing each other. sounds like a great idea to me. bumpyWhat is the name of this place?

RE: Good window sealant

The only way to correctly seal your windows is to remove and reinstall them. The caulk on the top of an RV window is mostly for cosmetic purposes plus a little extra safety. The real seal is butyl or putty tape that is used during installation. Butyl is better but more difficult to work with. Yes. I used a butyl putty tape like Winnebago used. Note this is not regular putty tape but is black and stretchy. The windows were not that hard to remove. A few screws on the inside and they came out pretty easy.x2 what he said. Make sure to get the black stretchy butyl stuff and not the white putty type. Once you reseal the windows with that stuff you won't need to mess with them again.

RE: How do you squeegee a round windshield.

My squeegee is almost like 2 large foam pieces instead of the typical rubber blade type you see. I think Lowes carries them. It helps with the curving of the windshield.

RE: Cell phone passcode?

For normal use. I do not use the pass code. When in shopping malls or rallies where any big crowed is I turn it on. There is an APP called ICE. That first responders can get contact info only for those you put in it. It will bypass the code.Huh? Ice will not show up at all on a android 5.0 screen. Like someone else said earlier, if you want someone to get to your contacts or ICE when you croak over in the mall, you better not use any lock. I won't just for those reasons.

Norcold N821 Inverter for AC use

Can anyone tell me what size inverter I need to run this refer on AC? I don't want to swap it out yet for a residential unit so I would like to have a inverter prewired and ready to go for that inevitable day. Thanks.

RE: Anchor Down RV Park

Maybe if they planted some trees and if there is some grass later. But we appreciate nature so don't usually stay in a parking lot type place. This place hardly looks like a parking lot!As long as your are looking out over the expanse at the mountains over the lake it doesn't, otherwise, not.

RE: Anchor Down RV Park

Thanks for the heads up about sites being unlevel. We do not like unlevel sites at all. Our Power Gear levelers go nuts on very unlevel sites.It's far from unlevel to the point you would need extra wood. You don't. I just found it interesting that someone spending all that money to build a new park wouldn't make sure the sites were really level. Seems like a waste of money unless his lazy brother in law did all the earth moving.

RE: Generator fried microwave after gen shut down several times

This is exactly why I wired my PD surge after the generator. I had a board go out on one generator, it upped the voltage to 160 and fried my microwave.

RE: Any difference in beaches from Gulf Shores to Pensacola?

yes, there is a big difference in the water quality IMO. Once Pensacola bay dumps it's darker colored water out into the Gulf, it tends to flow west. The beaches in AL might be nice but I don't recall seeing the nice clear emerald water that I did in FL.

RE: New RV Park Reviews website is now online

I won't complain too much since it is free, but I already mentioned that I would like the window of recent reviews to hold more reviews. I tend to watch that for new campgrounds and bad reviews. Hard to say how many reviews I miss now.

RE: Notes app on phone

I think Evernote is the best, most complete note-taking app. But I like Google Keep too. Here's a short article I just wrote about a special feature of Google Keep - the ability to give you a reminder based on your location. Pretty cool. http://geeksontour.tv/2014/11/google-keep-for-note-taking-and-reminders/Yes, that is pretty cool. I have been using Keep for a while and I never saw this option.

RE: Anchor Down RV Park

Anchor Down RV Park pictures. HERE well, no trees to block you sat. dish. bumpyExactly. I found it sterile, almost desert like in the lower section where I was. Brand new park. Why was my site not level? Why did they make almost all the sites that had a view of the lake/mountains back in? Perfect for a fiver with a back window but horrible for a motorhome. Why not hookups that allow for either way? I sometimes wonder why campgrounds are designed and built the way they are.

RE: Driving and reaching all controls

I don't expect to be able to adjust radio, heat, GPS, etc without being stopped.. as they are likely too far away. Review in MH magazine of Winnebago 36Y, stated that combo stereo/radio/backup monitor could not be seen with neck stretching as it was placed in center of dash. As I have never driven a Class A, I wondered if that was something that is commonly an issue? I will be traveling by myself, so won't have the advantage of a navigator to work them.It is rediculous where the builders put electronics. My radio was low in the center days. Backup monitor low too. Moved everything around to where I could see and use them without driving off the road.

RE: NASCAR Bristol August 2015

Interestingly Bristol has expanded their seat capacity significantly over the years. But as with all other tracks, ticket sales have plummetted over the last few years due to the economy. Bristol was one of the most highly sought ticket on the circuit. I wonder whether the demand for camping sites has also waned.Nascar was/is the sport of the white middle class american. I live down the street from Bristol and find it interesting too how often now we still see "tickets available" ads on the TV. It is still a show of how the economy has really never recovered. Almost all of our ATV sales places have also closed around here, another indication of what is really happening to the middle class who loved to spend money on big TV's, RV's, Nascar, ATV's, etc.

RE: And they want me to shop locally....

Your local RV dealer has a lot more overhead and expenses than Amazon. Ask your local dealer to "work" with you. Tell him what you stated here and that you'd like to support your local dealer, if he can make that possible.Why does everyone say that that local so-and-so has more overhead than Amazon. Who do you think pays for the multitude of Amazon's distribution (or fulfillment) centers and their delivery? Phooey. Local guys have been making a buck for years by jacking up the prices. There is no such thing as local anymore.

RE: Refrigerator Safety Device

Has anyone actually ever had this unit do what it is supposed to do? I have had mine installed for almost a year and have yet to hear it alarm once no matter how uneven the rv was. Saw this thread awhile back. ARP may have saved my fridgeYes, it was tested when I installed it. Was just curious if anyone had ever seen it actually shut a fridge down. From the other post, it appears it does and will. I have to make a note to check it when I am parked far off level.
