RE: USB charging port

There is an alternative to using RV power to charge USB devices. Check out BIOLITE CAMP STOVES. A small wood-burning stove with a USB port. Thermo-electricity charges the in-stove battery and most any USB device you may have. There are several models to choose from. Kinda pricey.

RE: Why do Dogs like to ....

Well, not directly related to the subject, but it is dog related! (Here we go!) Two fleas are leaving a movie theater one day. One flea says to the other ..... "It's pouring rain out. Do you want to walk home or take a dog?" :S

The exterior scenes of "The Shining" were filmed as above. The interior of the hotel was filmed in England.

RE: ZZZZZZZZ...every time!!

So we are fortunate enough to keep our TT in our backyard and every single time I go out there to work on it I end up turning the TV on and falling asleep. Eventually the wife will come out and ask what I am doing.....and just shake her head ;) Is it just me or is your camper secretly turning you into Rip Van Winkle also? Mobile Man Cave Syndrome. ;)

RE: Bigger Tires?

Wouldn't recalibration of the speedometer/odometer be necessary in some of these cases? Just a thought.

RE: Considering a Class B

Nothing wrong with talking about the choice between a B or a C in a Class B forum. It is a natural discussion as people are trying to decide whether a B or a C is best for them. He's NOT trying to decide, he HAS decided!

RE: Considering a Class B

Tho op said he doesn't want a Class C, so why do people need to hijack the thread to talk about Class C's? You don't see Class B people doing that to threads in the C forum. I say if you want to discuss the difference between a B, and a C start a new topic, don't try and change the op's thread unless they ask for it. X2

RE: Considering a Class B

Right on! It's interesting to see that the OP stats that he decided AGAINST a class C and WANTS a class B instead and still some folks will try to convince him otherise. lol

RE: Considering a Class B

As one not influenced by "fluff", I prefer "function". Thus, carefully read up on Sporstmobile. Their site shows all the basic van costs, different layouts, DIY options galore and many 2-wheel and 4-wheel options, including Sprinter models. They explain all options and mechanical systems well. And, prices are stated there as well for each option. Others may be prettier and flashier...... but can they fight? ;)

RE: Vinyl Seats

wow...I'm really surprised of the posts LIKING vinyl seats!...too cold in the winter, burn your skin off in the summer!!...but as they say, diff strokes for diff folks! I once bought a used Ford Cabriolet 5th wheel hauler from the owner (BIG three door sucker, think SportChassis). Seats were vinyl as I recall. The previous owner had installed seat protection covers made of many hundreds of small wooden balls (think thumbnail size but round) woven together with a thin cordage system into the shape of the seats themselves. The setup perfectly fit the seats and protected them from wear and tear but not spillage as space between the balls would allow liquids to reach the vinyl. Thus, no bodily contact with the vinyl and prevented the Burning Bum or Frosty Fanny Syndromes. The covers also easily slipped off of the seats when needed. But the biggest advantage was how comfortable those covers were! Unbelievable in that the ride was so relaxing and driving the rig for 8-12 hours was not too tiring for us. Never sat in seats as comfortable since then.

RE: Refreshing fiberglas

Best way to bring back the shine. Water sand it with 500+ grit water paper. then buff, and wax. however try a good Cleaner Wax first. May be all it needs 500 grit wet sanding is too aggressive, better to be in the 1000, 1200, or 1500 range before buffing. Of course everyone differs some what on this, depending on surface condition, rubbing compounds used, and expected finish desired. I would not recommend wet sanding for someone who has not had experience or training in it. I did it for a living. I was the "Boat Doctor". and truly we used 400 grit Water paper. which is way different than regular sand paper. Then I buffed if out with compound, and waxed it. I have to brag a little. When I was done. you couldn't tell it was ever scratched, or dulled. And when a new boat was drilled wrong.. You couldn't see the bad place when I was done. I also rebuilt molds for new boats. they had to have prefect finishes. Because the GelCoat goes on first. The fiberglass is sprayed / chopped, to the GelCoat. Now, you are saying to wet sand with 400 grit and then buff. I stand with my original statement, we are talking about finishes on rv's. So can you tell me how fiberglass on boats is different from fiberglass on RV's?

RE: RV Park / Suggestion around Boston / Brighton, MA

As a former Native Bostonian, One must realize that a war produced the myriad of streets in Boston. I surmise that we designed the pathways in the city to confuse the British Soldiers in their quest to chase down those dastardly colonial rebels. :B

RE: Towed 55,000lbs with 135hp today

RE: Refreshing fiberglas

Glass Reinforced Plastic (commonly known by it's trade name as Fiberglass) repair and maintenance is best performed through a boat repair facility. They're the experts. They do it all the time. See what they use.

RE: Enough with the recalls

recalls means the auto industry is paying attention to their product after it leaves their lot. That is a great thing and no one should complain about that!! A "great thing"? How about building them correctly in the first place? Wasn't that long ago when manufacturers would decide to not do recalls knowing customers will die as a result. They didn't announce recalls until they were threatened with Federal Government involvement and many dealer and customer lawsuits. After all, what's a few dozen lives to several billion dollars of profits to the manufacturer? I may come across as cynical, and I am, perhaps due to years of life experiences with business, manufacturing, technology and Government, NONE of whom can I trust to be Competent and Honest at this stage in my life.
