RE: Was retirement for you a good or not so good choice?

I was forced into an early retirement...by the DW. Glad I married such a smart woman. I spent 44 1/2 years in a truck and worked for about the last 30 years nights, the last 13 for an LTL freight company. The job was OK, enjoyed my co-workers but the company I worked for were bodily orifices. After all THEY invented the wheel. LOL. Plus the fact that they screwed me out of 6+ years of retirement, but that is another story. The DW put the bug in my ear to retire in about February, took her several months to pound it in so we set the date as September 30/2015, just short of my 63 birthday, figured no need to chain again unless I wanted to. That sounded good then on July 3 I walked into the managers office and told him I was retiring on 7/31 at the end of my shift. At 0809 August 1 I dropped my keys and badge on the office managers desk and walked out the door. Never looked back. Don't miss it one bit. DW still works but she works out of the house so as long as we have a decent cell connection were fine, She cut her hours to 30 a week a few months ago, so we do a little traveling, some hosting and whatever. When we are home I stay busy catching up on the deferred maintenance, setting up the new Bounder the way I want, drive the MH 60 miles to the DD once a week so DW can help with homeschooling the oldest grand kids. I got the better deal as I get to play with the younger two. Very glad I retired when I did, best thing I ever did. If I had a do over I would have planned better for retirement.

RE: Oregon Coast Mid to Late October

Hmm, I just checked picking three day stay for random days in Oct. There was openings on all. On the date calendar are you sure you got October 2016? You might advanced to 2017.

RE: need a decent mattress

https://www.mattressinsider.com/luxury-rv-mattress-memory-foam.html Had our for a year and we love it! Out for a month, home then out for two months, plus lots of long weekends and week trips. Bought a new rig and DW said we take our mattress or you keep your motorhome. She won.

RE: CDL License

Your state have any info on this? The state is going to want you to have all of the qualifications before you test. Even if you were to drive test you need to have the medical card before you can legally drive. If something were to happen while you were drive testing you would be sited for not having a medical certificate. The state isn't going to hang their rear out so they can get sued.

Oil Cooler Lines Rubbing

Just did the CHF on my 2016 F-53 and while looking around noticed that the water lines to the oil cooler rub, or nearly so, on the rear of the crossmember. The lines at the front of the crossmember have a split duct on them. Had the same thing on my '07 E-450. Might want to check yours.

RE: Oregon Coast- From Medford

Hwy 199 out of Grants Pass. Curves and narrow for about 20 miles. Totally doable. Next choice is go north on I-5 to Winston and take Hwy 42.

RE: Dometic Vacuflush Question

I am back with the same problem. Having the same hammering problem again. Started right off when I used the head after sitting for 12 days. Had son and grandson with us but we explained how to use it. Anyway I ran about 10 full bowels of water through, I know DW is using plenty of water. Others say they are. Tried another 10 full bowels of water through it later but still have a hard hammering the last 10-15 seconds of the cycle. Everyone is holding down he flush for a 15 count. Advice and ideas welcomed again.

RE: Traveling in hot regions

For me the first on my list is tires and cooling system, in no particular order. Tires inflation and condition. Cuts, weather checking, bulges, valve stems, tread. Cooling system for coolant, radiator clean in and out, hoses in good shape. You can travel without the A/C but sitting along side road ain't fun.

RE: Sunseeker 3010DS/Forester 3011DS

Well we just traded off the 2007 Sunseeker 2860DS to a Bounder 34T. We bought it used and we never did have any complaints about it. We hosted for three months but we were only 90 miles from home for one month then 40 for the last two, so going home wasn't a big deal. I think the SS was listed at 31 feet. Was it a little cramped at times, yes, but doable. We never did kill each other. We too like the state/national parks so I get where you are coming from. The two biggest complaints was weight distribution and trying to keep enough forward. My rear was always about 300-500 pounds over. That and the turning radius of the E-450 is about the same as an aircraft carrier. The 35 foot Bounder turns WAY shorter. But I still am running rear weights near maximum. Overhead clearance on the class C was lower. When someone follows me in the campground now there is shouts about a drunk driver and parents rush to gather their children. We don't require a lot of stuff with us so the SS storage was fine. I think your bedroom is laid out the same and the clothes storage is good. We converted the rear closet with wire shelf for random less used things. Good luck.

RE: US 20 in Oregon

Also east of Sweet Home about 20 miles a bridge is being redone in near future and road will be closed. Don't remember if there was a detour but if there is it likely will be a logging road.

RE: Anybody using Playon?

We have had it for a couple of years in S&B. It seemed to work ok for while but went to poor. Been on two different computers but never will hold settings right. By time DW gets to work right I am buried in the Internet. I wouldn't recommend it.
RedRollingRoadblock 07/25/16 04:49pm Technology Corner

Mine on an '07 weren't quite vertical either. I said close enough and been running it for several years with no problems. If in doubt call Hellwig. I ran into a problem on my install and they were great. I just had a minor reading comprehension problem. LOL

RE: Woman and Tattoos

One should not rush to judge others what they do to their bodies. If it doesn't affect you and is legal? MYOB.

RE: Clock tells me to update in 6 days (Windows 10) or else

...'tis why I own a Mac and will never go back to PC. Ahhh yes. The old "macs are great" when a PC question is asked. So tell me why was the OS X El Capitan up grade such a huge PIA?

RE: Pulling A Train

It's illegal in WA for recreational towing, unless you have an out-of-state licence plate and are a tourist. Triple commercial truck/trailer rigs are allowed, but only on freeways. Minor point. In the commercial vehicle world triples are understood to be three trailers. They are certainly not allowed anywhere in WA.

RE: Residential fridge

What did you decide to use for door lock? I have the same Samsung and Fleetwood door lock is made by Micky and Co. Using a Velcro strap last trip and seem to work OK so Micky's handy work is coming off today.

RE: Do the people that build them ever use them?

So this thread is going to be about "The design of this is really dumb, but it is my fault because in my twisted mind I thought all water tanks should vent/overflow in to my nightstand and I should know to look there? When you pull you car to the gas pump do you expect the back seat to fill with gas? Oh, stupid me I should have thought they terminated the fill pipe in the passenger compartment. Sheesh.

RE: Do the people that build them ever use them?

Well my complaint isn't the overflow tube size yet...gotta find where it vents before I join that club. 2016 Bounder Anniversary Edition. The thermostat is above the door in a fake cabinet. It is 6'7" from the floor, not the step, to center of it. Now I admit I am vertically challenged, but come on. To top it off it is LCD so it is nearly impossible to read. Then there is a battery monitor unit that is a few inches higher. Behind the bedroom TV there is a usable storage with a shelf, till in their infinite wisdom they put the TV hookup, booster, and some other stuff on the wall with half on the left side then the rest on the right side thus making the whole cabinet useless. The thermostat and the rest of the stuff could have been neatly put in one shelf saving the other for something useful. Some of the stupid stuff one sees confirms the fact that they really don't care.

RE: Where to buy batteries?

Trojan has a dealer locator on their website. Give it a try. Then call some places for price. My dealer dropped like $30 each for cash.
