RE: Update 8.1.2

DW put this update on her iPad a week or so ago, and hasn't complained about anything. YMMV, but I haven't read about any problems on line. Of course, always backup before updating, so that you can drop back in case of difficulty.

RE: Ford C-Max

It's also a good idea to put a diode on the charge line to make sure the current always flows into the toad battery and never vice versa.

RE: campgrounds with cable boxes

To help others, post the requirement, costs, and difficulty of using cable TV at that RV Park/Campground's entry in RV Park Reviews.

RE: RV 760 LMT route guidance

Is it trying to keep you from having to turn left when you arrive at your destination? I don't know if it's still true, but Garmin used to have a human answer the phone for question/trouble calls.

RE: Adobe Flash player

A different browser is not an option. My wife has Parkinson's disease, and changing to a new system would just confuse her. Her days are difficult enough without adding something new to the mix.I'm sorry that your wife has Parkinson's - I've said a prayer for her. You could load a better browser to use for the Flash update, then remove it when you're done. Your wife would never know that the other browser had been on your machine for a short period of time. Note that the flash update may tell you to quit the new/different browser too, but all you should have to do is quit the browser, and let the update finish.

RE: More lack of control in Chinese goods

A knock-off F-150 ? I don't think so ! Chinese Knock Off F-150 How is a 140 hp wimpy truck a knock-off of an F-150? Give me a break!! Car makers have been coping each others designs for 70+ years. Is a Camero a knock-off of a Mustang? EDIT There is no way that any consumer with a brain in his head would ever confuse that truck for an F-150.I think the point is that the one billion plus people in China won't be available as a market for Ford pickups - they will be buying the Kawei K1 instead. That won't help the job market in the USA!

RE: Toad lost charge with charge line?

Put a diode in the line to make sure that the toad battery isn't helping to run the RV.

RE: Where did you get your Electrical knowledge?

Worked in a garage doing routine auto maintenance, then was a Field Mechanic in an oil field - we did a lot of plumbing, electrical work, cement, built buildings, welding, truck transport, etc. Later went to work in an airplane factory, and ended up in computers. Eventually graduated from college (13 years after high school), and became a System Engineer, also taught Computer Science at a distinguished university. First paying job was in grammar school. Worked throughout Jr. High and High School.

RE: Suburban furnace min. air return grill size?

Installing a blower in the return duct can allow you to use a smaller opening. Someone who specifies forced air cooling and heating systems can help you figure it out. The key is the cubic feet of air per minute going into the heater.

Bogus ? Good Sam card

In the mail this week, we received two envelopes from Good Sam Roadside Assistance. One was addressed to me, and the other to my wife. Inside each envelope were two cards. In both cases, one card had my name, and the other had the name of a woman I've never heard of. After calming down my wife, I went down the road to a Camping World, and showed them the cards. I also asked about our account. They did have our account with our names on it, and weren't able to find anything with the other woman's name. They also told me that it was quite common for someone to shop there and say that they've forgotten their cards. The cashier volunteers to look it up, and the customer would give a name. The cashier would do a search, and find something with the same last name and ask it that was their card (even though the first name wasn't the same). Then the customer says yeah that's me, and may even have the address and phone number changed. What worries me is that these cards had my name and the name of the "other woman" which makes me wonder what someone could do regarding ordering stuff online, roadside assistance, etc. Does anyone have a good answer for my mysterious second wife's card???

RE: Escapees Answer to the AZ Diesel Question

Having been hassled once some years ago, we always fill up before entering Arizona (usually at the Flying J in Lordsburg, NM), and don't refuel until we are out of state in California, Nevada, Utah, or back in New Mexico). No Problem ! ! !

RE: Yelp no longer a reliable source of information

Here is an article that says Yelp posts bad reviews unless businesses advertise with them ? I came to a different conclusion after reading the article: Yelp won a lawsuit that alleged it was exhorting local businesses for advertising fees:h. It's critics still want them to reveal the formula of the algorithm used for weeding out false reviews but uhmmmm well if it was my business don't think I would.The article did not say that the court found that Yelp did not base reviews on whether or not the business bought advertising. Here is the relevant section out of the story: the court said that, even if Yelp did manipulate reviews to penalize businesses, the practice would not constitute extortion.

RE: cell tower construction

Guess someone is going to have to tell me why we are still building towers when we have sattilites.Take a look at the size of an antenna used to transmit a high data rate signal from the earth to a geosynchronous satellite. Supposedly several companies (including Google I think) are kicking around the idea of putting a lot of satellites at low altitudes. That would mean smaller antennas, but a lot of motion to acquire and track the nearest satellite.

RE: Over Priced Used Motorhomes.

Try and look at as many RVs for sale that fit your target as you can. If you find one you like, make an offer lower than what you wish to spend for that unit. Tell the seller that your offer is what you feel like you can afford to spend on their unit. If the seller blows you off, smile, thank them for their time, and look for another one. If they make a counter offer, try and negotiate something you're willing to pay. If you can't come to an agreement, smile, shake your head, and wish them well. If you can't find a deal that you are comfortable with, give up on finding what you want in that age class and unit type, and try to come up with an alternative - maybe you would be happier, and have more money in your pocket, if you bought a travel trailer.

RE: How much is an RV parking space at home worth to you?

While the value of the parking/storage space might increase the amount an RVer would be willing to pay for a piece of real estate, the value of the real estate in the neighborhood (including the lot with the RV space) might be lowered because some (if not many) non-RVers would find the parking area an eyesore. If you are looking in an area where the lot sizes are measured in acres and the homeowners are free to park vehicles/keep livestock/plant an orchard/whatever, whether or not you have an RV would not make a difference.
