RE: Generator Question...which one?

...What size generator do I need to run everything... Is it 30 amp service? If so you need a 3,600 watt generator to match the 30 amp. ...Secondly what generator do I buy.... There are a huge number of threads on here discussing the merits of all the different generators.

RE: Multi Insurance Policies in Ohio

I have had Nationwide for close to 40 years on my homes and vehicles. Their rates are not competitive on RVs and motorcycles so I have the two trailers and motorcycle insured through Progressive. Nationwide was started by the Ohio Farm Bureau as a mutual insurance company which means it is owned by the policyholders so Farm Bureau members get a nice discount.

RE: Camping World Sponsorship of Ocean Canyon Properties

I don't know if Camping World did or did not give them your contact information. I am curious what convinced you it was Camping World that did? As RVers we make purchases and do business with many different RV related companies. Any of those companies could be guilty of selling their mailing list. I would be very unhappy about anyone sharing my phone number but don't care at all about my mailing address.

RE: So, just how "hazardous" can a tank full of poo be?

One probably gets more contaminants on their hand grabbing the door handle of a public restroom than dumping their own black tank.

RE: RVing if you don't like to drive?

If I don't drive long distances, is there a way that I can still go RVing? Are there companies or individuals that would move the rig? Expensive? I'd probably move it 4 times per year. Drive short distances, there is no rule on how far one must drive. There are transport companies but the costs would be high.

RE: Annual cost to fulltime

I think these discussions are valuable but could do without the snippy people. The costs are not set in stone, but for those of us without a starting point, every little bit helps. Unfortunately I can't answer the question because we are still working and only vacation/weekend campers. However I try to glean a little bit when I can to apply toward our future full-time adventure. We have been debt free for a long time and live simply but never really paid much attention to our spending. Since we are now about 2.5 years from retirement, I am starting to organize our finances and calculate our expenses. There are a couple apps available for tracking income and expenses. I started using "Personal Capital" at the beginning of the year but hear that "Mint" is also a good one. I see some mention Excel but I am clueless on setting up and using that tool.

RE: I will use a wifi only ipad mini as GPS.

I have the iPad Mini WiFi which has no GPS. There is no data plan and it cannot be used for navigation without an add-on GPS. I do have "GPS CoPilot" and "Pocket Earth" apps which are both offline maps. They can plot a route but due to no GPS they do not follow the route. The offline iPad maps essentially take the place of a paper map or atlas. I use a TomTom GPS for navigation which cost $69 on Black Friday.

RE: Newbie Curious About Owner's Experiences with Aliners

FWIW, Aliner offers an off road suspension option.

RE: Poor attitude at top rated Good Sam Park, Phoenix,AZ

Many cultures consider dogs to be food, jus sayin. :p

RE: Help ID

Any idea what this is? It is under the cabinet next to the antenna booster http://i.imgur.com/8OiVEUGl.jpg The picture doesn't clearly show the item. All I see is a chrome plate, two screws, and something black.

Just switched about 300 fixtures from T12 to T8 in our office building. T12 lamps are still available but production has ceased.

RE: Problem at Camping World

Contact the manufacturer of the chairs. Camping World only sold them, they didn't build them. Most stores will take a product back in a reasonably short period of time. Your post reads like these chairs were used for nearly a year. If the product is defective, the warranty is from the manufacturer, not the seller.

RE: Anything stolen from locked compartments.

Never had anything stolen and I wouldn't waste money changing the locks. Anyone with a screwdriver can pop those baggage doors open in seconds. Thieves don't care if they cause damage.

RE: How difficult is it to get a title?

I thought this thread looked familiar, discovered I replied to it four months ago.

RE: Wire Size to Connect 2 12V Batteries?

I would get the ready-made battery cables. Most are #4 from your local auto parts store. Same here, the pre-made cables are cheap and readily available.

RE: Any experience with rvinspection.com

I don't know about those people but I did recently hear two podcast interviews about the NRVIA. They sound very impressive and dedicated to quality work. http://nrvia.org/locate/

RE: Is it okay to drop my tip out beds at rest stops or Walmart?

Here is the Walmart website FAQ; Can I park my RV at a Walmart store? While we do not offer electrical service or accommodations typically necessary for RV customers, Walmart values RV travelers and considers them among our best customers. Consequently, we do permit RV parking on our store parking lots as we are able. Permission to park is extended by individual store managers, based on availability of parking space and local laws. Please contact management in each store to ensure accommodations before parking your RV. Follow Walmart's guideline and ignore what anyone on here or elsewhere claims. Only Walmart controls Walmart's property. I really tire of all the self proclaimed Walmart parking police making up their own rules and imposing those rules on others.
