RE: A golddie oldie that I stumbled across

Actually, not really one of a kind as they manufactured about a hundred of that model.

RE: A golddie oldie that I stumbled across

This one is not in the catalog archive. There is some styling resemblance to the low-profile Itasca Windcruiser from this era, but that was more conventional, on a front engine Chevy chassis with a tag axle. I think the price is pretty low for something that probably belongs in a museum. After doing a search, seems that the Spectrum was manufactured for one model year with a relationship to Winnebago industries -- (whatever that means).

RE: Advice needed on BSOD Scam!

I was hoping that it would be fine if I restarted the computer, but that same screen and message appeared again, so the computer is USELESS in this state. Try a Power OFF. Sit one minute and re-power up. Or, do a System Restore to a previous Restore Point that you had set up yourself or was generated by the system at some point.

RE: RV build quality issues

Looks like it was designed by a maximum security prison warden. Not if one looks it this way .. to keep undesirables OUT! ;)

RE: Suggestions for Route to Florida from Maine

Use the Tappen Zee Bridge or the Newburg Beacon Bridge for New York. Use the Francis Scott Key Bridge (695) in Baltimore instead of the tunnels. Propane is prohibited in the Baltimore tunnel. Take the Key Bridge. If you mistakenly head for the tunnel, there is an off ramp exit just before the tunnel entrance with Police standing by to wave you off onto said ramp. They stop you and check your license and then send you on your merry way to the bridge. Ask me how I know! :R

RE: Useless gutter spouts

A wooden clothes pin clipped on the gutter works amazingly well. The water follows the clothes pin. Send me $39.95 (plus shipping) for a set of 4 genuine WOODEN RV GUTTER EXTENSION CLIPS. Aha! I found them on Amazon for $29.95 and free shipping. Ya can't fool me.

RE: Snow Chains

Another non-tire damaging chain system are the automatic tire chain systems available. Seems to satisfy the Caltrans requirements if I read then correctly. Some wear and tear on the inboard side of the tire MAY be expected in my opinion if used for "extended" trips.

RE: Northeast in the fall

OP clearly states that he wants to visit the Northeast for foliage and not been there before in his travels. Yet, sometimes people with reading comprehension problems always have to chime in "oh, don't forget this one and you gotta see that one! Never ceases to amaze me. :B

RE: Host Everest vs the Eagle Cap 1165

To that end we think that easier access to both sides of the bed and easier access to external storage would be a plus. So far the Host Everest and Eagle Cap 1165 are at the top of our list. Neither one is ideal. Have you looked at the Eagle Cap 1200 yet? It has access to both sides of the bed (California King) and I think it has a little more basement storage space than the 1165. The OP said that he has already looked at the 1200 and didn't like it.

RE: OK. I give up. What are these hooks for?

Looks to me it is for something other use. The hook is facing in the "wrong direction" for most of the aforementioned uses. :h

RE: Small, portable wood stove for tent....or camper?

The beauty of that $4,000 Kimberley stove is that it requires NO ventilation from inside the RV as it uses OUTSIDE air for combustion. The stove draws NO air from inside the RV to facilitate combustion. The air intake into the stove comes through a 2-inch hole drilled through the floor of the RV to the outside air through which a tube is snaked through that hole to several inches below the floor up into the bottom of the stove itself. All installed with proper sealants, etc. The stove has it's OUTSIDE air intake at the bottom of the stove via a tube placed into the floor hole to the outside. Thus, there is no need to be concerned about CO2 poisoning, etc. A completely closed system. Gotta love it! If the intake hole is somehow blocked by debris,etc., combustion ceases and the fire goes out. like virtually immediately. (Pssst...Keep a CO2 detector onboard anyway) ;) A couple of youtube videos show how it's installed and used in an RV and in a sailboat.

RE: Small, portable wood stove for tent....or camper?

The Kimberly wood stove would be my personal choice if I had the cassh. View the video of an installation of said stove in a class c camper. One's also installed on a boat. Another in a cabin to generate heat and electricity. Draws OUTSIDE air into the firebox via a hole drilled through the camper floor. Thus, no danger of losing breathable interior air for combustion. Carbon monoxide-free operation with the outside air feeding the firebox. Stove had secondary combustion in the upper honeycomb chamber to burn up excess smoke and fumes. And the small clearances on the rear and sides are a great space saver in the camper. Kinda big $$$ though. Upwards of $4K with pipes, etc. The website is "www.unforgettablefirellc.com".

RE: Something Different

Only 260hp? It'll never sell in the states. The plates look somewhat similar to Calif plates??

RE: Traveling companion wanted to Chapala

USA has approx. three times the population of Mexico. The point of the above line totally escapes me - as does most of the rest of the post. Perhaps I should clarify my post. OP seems concerned about travel in Mexico due to two very unfortunate murders. Murder happens everywhere. As well as many areas of the US. So what is the difference? In Mexico the vast majority of murders are drug related and happen to those involved in the drug trade. Yes, there are most certainly other murders. And the drug gangs do kill military and police as well as some others. But mostly not civilians and almost never tourists. In the US you can be killed for sitting in a movie theater or teaching at an elementary school or going to church or working in an office building. I am wondering if the fact that the US has more people than Mexico means it is OK to just randomly kill people in the US? Is that what the quote above implies? I absolutely did not mean to imply that at all. Sorry for the misunderstanding, my fault. Thinking out load, I'd like to see a similar mass killing report from the Mexican side and compare to the USA side already presented. Then, taking in the population ratio of Mexico to USA we might see a more accurate assessment of potential violence to travelers. As an aside, I did notice that a number of people recommend that one should never drive at night in Mexico especially along rural roads.
