WebRoot and MalwareBytes have not failed me on my latest laptop from Best Buy.

RE: explain to me

As a 'boomer' with a full time job I get out more than most. I also have enjoyed certain routines with friends, CGs and time frames. I've had my MH 4 years and 11,000 miles. Unfortunately (or a blessing), my favorite monthly CG adventure is only 50 miles away. I am retiring in May and expect my mileage will increase exponentially even though I do not expect a cross country excursion for some time. My mileage totals were about the same with my ROO. The running joke at work has been, I work at camping. I would agree that too many folks buy a RV and seldom get out more than a month a year.

RE: Forest River

A couple of minor issues but nothing to get all whacked about. I really love my Sunseeker especially when all is in good order.

RE: Do you exercise your generator in the winter?

Yep. And the 3500W and 9000W as well. It is a long and loud 6 hours every month but they always work well when needed.

RE: Class C bunkhouse w/ outdoor kitchen?

I like the concept and have enjoyed sharing good times with friends who have them in TT. Since I have the same general Class C layout, I would really hate to lose the bedroom wardrobe on the curbside wall. That kitchen looks deep even if only half way up.

RE: can i keep my gas tank filled all winter

Both my sons run Sea Foam in their high performance cars. I had never heard of it before and although pricey, I bought some for my vehicles and shed equipment. I run my RV genny once a month so I am not as concerned about fuel sitting but adding a stabilizer can't hurt.

RE: Anyone have damage from blow-only winterizing?

I stopped using anti-freeze back in 2008 when I had still had my ROO. I usually also camped over Thanksgiving, NYE and in February so true winterizing was not practical. Since I bought the MH I am out during winter months. Once again, no anti-freeze used. I drain the lines as best I can and have not blown them out in four years. I do use low temp switched heaters in the basement and living area and to date have never had an issue to include the outside shower faucet. I guess one could suggest that is living dangerously but so far so good. And yes, I can hear Dirty Harry in the background!

RE: Opinion on winterability of my rig

A variety of experiences and options offered. Having camped several winter seasons in my ROO, adaptabilty was Job #1. I have continued winter camping in the MH, admittedly only locally but Mid-Atlantic winters can be brutal too, just not as bad as our Northern and Mid-West neighbors. It is and has been a work in progress. Although I have ducted heat and a heated underbelly I rarely use propane heat. I do maintain a small space heater on a 38 degree thermostat in the black/gray tank and water pump area which keeps things 'warmer'. I have wrestled with emptying both tanks overnight and as observed by someone, the more thermal mass the lessor chance of freezing. But dumping each night is no big deal. I often do not detach the fresh water hose as well since it is heated but there really is no reason to keep it attached unless a steady stream of fresh water is absolutely necessary. That is why we have fresh water tanks. I have not insulated much underneath but do have reflectix inserts on every window and vent in the living area as well as plexiglass panels on the screen door. I use an oil filled radiator and one ceramic heater in the living area to balance direct/indirect heat. The coldest I have experienced for an overnight was a low of 25 degrees outside and it was a struggle to keep it toasty inside. I have had several days running where getting to a 40 degree high was a stretch. Of course that is when I scratch my head and ask myself "why"? A warm sweater, blanket, good DVDs and a bottle of Fireball help too!

RE: Comfortable distance from Radiant Propane Heaters

Thanks Steve for the technical side of the equation. I was expecting a simple "yes" or a "few inches". Hah! However, it is a genuine safety concern. I agree on creating circulation as opposed to simply opening a window.

RE: Comfortable distance from Radiant Propane Heaters

Quick question, off topic but related. I have yet to use my portable Buddy propane heater in the RV. I understand as long as a vent or window is open the risk of CO should be negated and of course making sure the detector is working as well. How open should a vent or window be? Of course warm air rises so maybe a roof vent would not be the most optimal. Thanks.

RE: Dish Tailgater

Does anyone use coax longer than the 50 ft with good results? I know they recommend no more than 100 feet but recently while in an Ontario Provincial Park I ran almost 150 feet to get a good sight line beyond the trees. I could only acquire one satellite but the reception was crystal clear.

RE: Reflectix 'panels' for winter storage?

In my HTT the reflectix panels were a necessity in summer and winter. When I bought the Class C, although not as necessary I use them on all but two windows most of the time, dependent upon location and temps. The panels make a big difference in maintaining ambient temperatures as well as keeping UV rays from working on the interior. And I really appreciate when sunrise is not an automatic wake up call.

I saw the lesser priced Sleek 3G amp listed for $89. Those with 4G phones commented that it works well. I suspect the newer 4G Sleek model boosts signal more efficiently. I wonder if the signal boost is more significant with the 4G model and worth another $45? Rhetorical question only. That's what the credit card is for!

RE: Using Dish Tailgator cube

I have used www.dishpointer.com as a resource for line of sight Google map orientation since I do not have an Apple product. The latter is outstanding when I have seen it used. At this point I did not want to drop $20 for the respective Dishpointer app. I also have the Satellite Finder app from Foxsmith Technology. Simple but efficient tracker. I just dowloaded Satellite Director by Zekitez. Very cool and immediate tracking results with audio and visual recognition.

RE: Using Dish Tailgator cube

Most forested CGs are hit or miss regarding that one spot through the trees. And most of us in the Northeast do not get the 129 SAT anyway. Some days I do not get the 110 SAT either when the trees are too dense. Camping during the winter months does help a bit as the trees lose their leaves. The on screen zip code data only provides info regarding the location's azimuth and elevation. It does not manually change the acquiring of the satellites. All that is done by the Dish techs. I would say in the last year I have been more disappointed by the lack of optimal service in my CGs. But when I catch two satellites the sky's the limit. No pun intended.

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

When I bought my house in '99 I had a grassy, crush and run driveway. My residential street is narrow and access is tight. Even though at that time I owned a 19' PUP I knew it was time to invest big bucks in a long and wide driveway, just in case. Now I have the MH, toad and a F-150 all tucked away nicely, just like on an aircraft carrier! I have always loved working in and around my PUPs, Roo and the Sunseeker. I can dump at home as well. It is worth everything to me to have immediate access and know it is as secure as it can be in my driveway. Having friends who own 40' MHs or 5ers and due to HOA restrictions cannot park them at their $500,000 homes seems a bit silly. Even more so when the HOA tells them what kind of paint and fencing they need to use. I did real estate part-time for two years. No different than having a pool in the back yard. You may love it and think it has great appeal but when it comes time to sell, someone else may not see it the same way and unwilling to pay that extra buck. I do not think a parking pad or extended driveway is a deal breaker for the most part when selling.

RE: Coachman Leprechaun 319DS

I never try and bash any product. We all love our units and no manufacturer is immune from having production issues. I have friends who have had a Leprechaun for 4 years. The last two years they have had ongoing fresh water plumbing/pump issues which for whatever reasons have not been resolved satisfactorily resulting in constant leaking and an inability to have running water in the unit. Were it not for the fact they have a dealer winterize it for them I might suggest that may have contributed to the issue. As for me and my Sunseeker, I navigate issues as they come up as well. It is not a perfect world.

RE: Stability of 31' C on E 450 chasis

This was my first MH so I can only compare to pulling travel trailers. I went almost three years not pulling a toad and found the handling to be excellent. Even with the toad for the last year, I still "drive it like I stole it" but certainly with safety being the primary consideration. I travel alone, have never weighed the MH and know I carry a lot of stuff. Other than extremely windy conditions on open interstates or a large profile tractor trailer whizzing by me too close, the MH almost feels like it is on auto pilot. Just turned 10,000 miles.

RE: toad

And the correct answer is: It's like a girlfriend - everyone has their favorite! :B Sadly, I have no favorite girlfriend at the moment. However, I do like my CR-V. And I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express once! LOL!
