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?

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

RE: My friend calls me crazy!

a more enlightening take on the term 'value' is that money in and of itself has no actual value - it only offers the potential for people to realize worthwhile experiences. like, "it was the most awe-inspiring week of our lives touring around the Rockies, even though its value was a mere outlay of $900." this is the 'fallacy of misplaced concreteness,' where value is mistaken to be the cost, but it is actually the awesomeness of the experience.

RE: substitute dometic brisk air II for old penguin 600315.321

You need somebody to figure out if a new "upper" can work with your "lower." Remember what I mentioned before. Most of these A/C units now seem to be sold as Upper (Rooftop, Compressor, Coils, etc.) and Lower. That needs figured out before you do any shopping. My Guess, and it's only a Guess, that a Ducted system like yours requires a different Upper than the kind you mentioned. The Ductless one on sale, controls on the unit. I can only suppose there could be thermostat/control issues too. If you could get an upper to match existing lower, and only needed a different thermostat, wouldn't that be a good fix? i think you are spot on w/ this analysis. when the dealer said i needed a new upper after the compressor quit running during their diagnosis, they had a confused discussion as to if or how a dometic unit rhey had taken from a new rig could be used. the confusion and not brand new but nevertheless priced at $1000 installed all led me to decline the offer.

RE: substitute dometic brisk air II for old penguin 600315.321

nice discussion... phil, we are always plugged into shore at a state park for 1 or 2 nites only. AND, we only do this when the louisiana heat and humidity aren't so present. so late sept thru early may. evrn so, there are times when a few hours, or all nite; AC runs are warranted, in the may thru sept months, we give MH an exercise run to a city park or a restaurant, and the genset runs the AC for a couple hours. we definitely are not run-of-the-mill RVers, tpi, you are making very important points on portable AC shortcomings that i kind of suspected. we've been vacillating about continuing to RV mainly for the dogs' sake for maybe 5 yrs, or so. it's starting to look like we may just as well admit that we had our run w/ it. along with the RV, we are aging a bit, my retinitus pigmentosa is progressing in the lousy way that it does, and the dogs seem more relaxed in the backyard than in the RV whenbetween camground walks.

RE: substitute dometic brisk air II for old penguin 600315.321

these standup ACs we just looked at one, and as you say, j-d, it would take up space and be kind of gimmicky. although it could sit in the shower tub and maybe vent out bathroom fan vent, andthe 6' cord might workas is, or needa short heavy gauge extension. am really going back and forth w/ taking it to pl or continue to keep hassling w/ this issue, then that, when we are really just not that into RVing after 11 yrs and w/ doggies (and us!) slowing down.
