RE: Level

Just a stick on bubble level on the door and set of Anderson levlers. Just start driving up the Anderson's bubble in the middle stop put the chocks in place and done. Easiest leveling system short of automatics.

RE: TV Antenna

I have a Lava OmniPro HD-8008 and love it. Have it laying in the cab over and it does fair. Have piece of aluminum conduit that I can attach it to that is clamped to the ladder then it does excellent. Can set this up in under 5 minutes and no aiming required. Have been able to pull in stations that the standard bat wing RV antennas wont. HD-8008 link

RE: Experienced RVing Dog Owner Question.. PLEASE

Whether or not the A/C can keep up with the heat load, depends on where you are, the sunlight, size of the A/C, and how well insulated the RV. My C, with a 15K BTU A/C, can keep the interior about 15-20 F cooler than the outside, in sunlight. That's about typical also for 28-30 foot rental units, smaller boxes with the same A/C will be cooler. So it depends on where you are going, 105F summer day on the Great Plains, still going to be about 85-90 inside until the sun goes down, unless you can park in shade. . We have been out in ours, 27 foot with a 13,500 BTU AC, when it was over 110 and it stayed in the high 70s inside. Tips to do so park in shade if possible if not park with the passenger side to the west and put the awning out. Use a cover on the door windows and windshield. Close off the cab area from the RV and close off the overhead bunk area and bathroom. And start cooling early do not let it get hot inside before you start cooling.

RE: How to deal with 1997 Tioga Walkabout above GVWR

Any weight behind the rear axle takes weight off of the front axle and transfers that weight to the rear axle. The farther back from the axel the greater the effect,

RE: Sometimes camping just isn't fun as it should be

Complain to management and if they do not do anything then post the heck out of it to let everyone know where not to stay.

RE: sewer hook ups

FYI do not leave your valves open keep them closed and then open them when your tanks get at least 1/2 full

RE: Experienced RVing Dog Owner Question.. PLEASE

This is what we have do if we leave the dog in the RV and if it below 80 we crack the windows and turn the fantastic fan on. If above 80 or if in doubt we run the AC. If we are in the parking lot of some site we are visiting and we need the AC we park at the far end of the lot and run the generator. Yes the generator or the power could go out but it could do that at the house also. We limit the time we leave him in the RV by himself to 4 hours MAX. Many RV parks have dog walking services or know someone in the park that will do that service. For example next year we are going to go to Glacier National Park the KOA on the West side does not have that service they tell you where you can board your dog while the KOA in Saint Mary has a dog walking service so we are staying at the St Mary's KOA.

RE: Scottsdale RV Park

Thanks for your reply, Thunder, will look into this one. What about parks in Mesa? There are several, but I have no idea which ones are closest to Scottsdale. Also am still hoping to find out how far Roadrunner Lakes is from Scottsdale. Their office is closed today, as are many of the parks that I have called. Thanks again for you help. Put the address for the park in Google maps it will give you location and if you know the address in Scottsdale put it in and it will give you distance.

RE: Westward trip tomorrow

Went through and stayed at Nashville then on to Saint Louis on the return leg of our trip this year. Some of things that come to mind are. If you are going to go up to Saint Louis then over the RV park at Casino Queen has a shuttle that will take you to the Metro Link Station that you can take to see lots of St Louis. If you want to take I 40 from Nashville would recommend Petit Jean State Park in Arkansas. A great park for overnight in Oklahoma is the El Reno West KOA. Just south of Amarillo is Palo Duro Canyon State Park with a road and campgrounds down in the second largest canyon in the US. From there to Durango CO take in the train and Mesa Verde. From there to Salt Lake either through the Black Canyon of the Gunnison or Arches National Park Utah

Odor Control in the RV

Home made #2 spray you do need to fill the toilet 1/2 to 2/3rds before spraying but does work and no need for air fresheners or vent running.

The good about GS RSA

Hear is the good about GS RSA We were in rural West Virginia this year during the forth of July and we lost out turn signals and brake lights. I replaced the fuses but they would blow immediately. Contacted GS RSA they gave me tips to try unfortunately they did not work, Called them back and less than 2 hours later the mobile mechanic had arrived and had found and fixed the problem.

RE: Weather Radio recomendations?

Any real world advice will be most gratefully accepted. THANKS in advance.In my real world I use a smartphone. Here also. The problem with weather radios is that you constantly need to update locations while traveling. The cellphone knows your location and sends only appropriate information. A great app is called Tornado which will automatically sound an alarm when bad weather is near you. It is a free app for android and maybe iPhone but I'm not sure. No need to update if it has travel mode.

RE: Weather Radio recomendations?

Been back for less than a week from just over five weeks with our first weather radio. We have the Midland HH54VP2 Portable Emergency Weather Radio. Would recommend it. Deciding factors: 1 Portable so if we were away from the RV we could still use it. 2 S.A.M.E Digital Technology: Allows you to receive alerts/warnings for your area not the entire state. 3 Home/Travel Weather Modes: Home mode – Weather channel selection is made by menu. Travel mode – The unit scans and locks on the local weather channel Had it go off several time during our trip, with watches only thank goodness, but during thunderstorms it was reassuring to know that nothing sever was being detected. You do need to know what county you are in we noticed on many of the campground maps it would tell us what county we were in and if not we would ask as we checked in. Purchased from Amazon
