RE: List of repairs from day one for my Class C

Ford put a twist in the fuel fill hose when they built the chassis. Nexus pulled it, reinstalled properly and even ran 5 gallons of gas through it to be sure they had solved the problem. When I asked for the bill I was told "No charge, we should have caught it when we built the coach". Now considering I bought used, not from them and that the coach was 18 months out of warranty I was more than a little amazed. that is really something to brag about - good on Nexus! so rare to find such pride in one's work these days.

RE: RV For Dog Rescue Charity

the need to keep an infrequently needed motorized truck vehicle in ready-to-go shape, not to mention all appliances like AC and generator, as well as preventing leaks and sun damage will take a LOT of effort, time, and money. just look at all the problems discussed in these forums. so the horse trailer w/ sleeper would be easier to upkeeo, but it needs a truck and you are not close to pups you said a rental van has worked so far, and this would be easiest cost-effective way to continue, except for those overnighters... sportsmobile in CA or TX can and does convert a used van into a dog transporter w/ a generator, AC, and likely a bed. this van should be much easier to drive/own/maintain http://sportsmobile.com/mobile-dogs/

RE: Why Does B+ Cost More Than Std. C?

not waging any battle, but i recall old ads where bornfree described how they carefully tested each new unit in a 'rain chamber.' this sure admits to a low certainty in a modern fiberglass advanced roof system. IIRC, bornfree - long considered to be quality - used a fiberglass roof on rv.netter skidrowjoe's rig, which he often said leaked a lot and the factory couldn't fix it. nexus says: "The seamless fiberglass sidewalls and fiberglass roof, plus molded front and end caps, reduce the possibility of leaks from water intrusion." no mention of unique sealant detailing at openings and along edges. note that just as BF showed uncertainty in their roofs thru rain tests, nexus is also aware of "the possibility of leaks from water intrusion."

RE: Why Does B+ Cost More Than Std. C?

All Nexus' have one piece fiberglass roof's with one piece fiberglass end caps. This is a far better design than any rubber roof. Isn't it fair to say all roof systems fail (leak) in the same manner - at the caulk around openinga and at the membrane perimeter?

RE: motorolla droid razr HD exhibiting erratic charging

Time to replace that tired old smart phone. It is prudent to move to a new smart phone every 2-3 years. Don't throw time or $ at such an old device. this is the direction we finally chose. at the bestbuy, a verizon rep pointed us to the 2016 galaxy J3, a $109 device for prepaid plan customers. it has somewhat better specs than the old droid, and it gets solid reviews. she really likes the android marshmellow software. seems a smart option for prepaid plans where you own a phone outright. thanks to all your good responses.

motorolla droid razr HD exhibiting erratic charging

martha's 3 y/o droid has been a solid player, and it still holds a strong charge -- if it decides to accept it. it may start charging when you plug it in, but when you come back later, it may or may not have continued the charging. have ruled out the charge transformer-block that its USB cable plugs into to use a wall socket, since the phone is also erratic plugged into a computer USB port. at the phone's charge port where the micro end of the USB charge cable connects, there is no indication of a loose connection. also, l used compressed air on the phone port and the cable plug w/ no apparent effect on the erratic charge. you cannot take out battery to see if its connection is at fault. again, if the phone behaves, it gets a strong charge good for 2 days' use. has anyone had a similar experience? is there a software explanation and fix?

RE: Turtle Top class b, any owners out there?

the titan is clearly a turtletop twwin to the roadtrek 200 'class b' the titans have a better shell than the rt 200, and the rear duallys offer a superior ride and handling

RE: Turtle Top class b, any owners out there?

do an archive search for mr zippy (and previously McZipp.) he had a turtletop that he custom designed as a sharp B+ great west vans had a B+ -- Titan -- that sure looked likeTT built the shell the original pleasureway pursuit B+ had floorplan identical tp titan just like the LTV Serenity shell comes from the Michigan builder of the highly touted Xplorer "B" (not at all built in the original dodge van shell)

RE: I made a big mistake

I would think that after having all that room inside you will not be happy with a cramped B! A conversion van has more room! Maybe look at some small C's or a B+? More room and still much smaller than what you currently have. Not to mention that B's are ridiculously overpriced for what they have to offer as an RV! + what george & lesley said X2 as i read the thread, i recalled the size issues we observed w/ a motorhome squeezed into a van. unless you two intend to become mainly highway wanderers vs campground stayers w/ company/family, perhaps something a bit larger. look at the LTV 24' B+ videos to get the ideas, and maybe you can find a similar MH but at a lower $ your downsize needs a specific target of function, ease, & low maint. best wishes

RE: Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 - DECISION MADE - THANK YOU

This topic has been beaten to death. You have till the 29th to make up your mind. Either keep up with the times or step asside. With all OS it's not where it is but where it's going. You can't built tomorrow's wonders with yesterday's tools a bit less moosehead and a bit more empathic concern for another's interest is my advice. ... i do not know the specifics to answer the OP's concerns. we have two 8.1 laptops, and not being power users, see no need for 10 w/ its several controversial idiosyncrasies. microsoft is legally committed to maintain 8.1 for another 5 yrs, or so, which is the probable lifespan of a current PC

RE: what's a durable yet inexpensive printer these days?

RE: what's a durable yet inexpensive printer these days?

by inexpensive, like $100 or so? or do any of you know of a fix for the HP flaw that when the black cartridge is replaced, the printer no longer prints right ?

RE: what's a durable yet inexpensive printer these days?

to clarify the OP, my wife's canon pixma is great, but my sister needs a recommendation for the defective HP Envy.

what's a durable yet inexpensive printer these days?

a few years back the rv.netters here recommended a canon pixma mg2120, which is cabled to martha's W8.1 laptop and has given flawless duty. my sister has a fairly lightly used HP Envy 6520 wireless printer and W10. it is acting badly with new black ink cartridge, and others have had same issue (i think even HP acknowledged a problem w/ these units). any solid recommendations on a replacement of the pixma caliber? TIA

RE: Antenna not worth a "hill of beans"

the big crankup boosted batwing was most likely better than what you have now on TC. but w/ the smaller TC, why not use a small mohu leaf, or a winegard flatwave ($28 at home depot). size of a sheet of paper. we use indoors at home to get all local OTAs within 25 mi (w/ added coaax booster amp)

RE: My friend calls me crazy!

Something not mentioned is, if you tend to be an introvert. Where being around people drains you. As opposed to time alone with family. An RV can provide a way to have much less people interaction. Than a hotel or motel, and provide more space for one to just get away from people, and the noise. To me this aspect of an RV is extremely important. And well worth the cost. good point. being dog people much more than people people, we realized the necessity of an RV to be able to travel and spend quality nature time in state/fed parks. tried the good sam club social camaraderie, but found the experience less desirable than spending the time w/ mutts
