RE: DEF Date Codes

I have this amazing idea!! Took me a while to develop and fine-tune it but I have finally succeeded! I am sooo :C. How about the date as MM/DD/YY? Between DEF fluids and Tires, etc, one needs a reference card for all of this foolishly presented data.

RE: Travel Trailers with Aluminum Frames

One more big advantage to a metal frame is lightening protection. Tires do not necessarily protect one from a lightening strike (assuming a GRP frame) whereas metal frames act as a Faraday Cage and route the strike down to the ground.

RE: Smashed Solar Panel Still Works (sort of) Question of Rain?

Our panels survived quarter sized hail in South Dakota with no problem or damage. Thanks for the info. Good to here. It was a concern of my buddy's plans to get solar.

RE: Smashed Solar Panel Still Works (sort of) Question of Rain?

I've always wondered how well solar panels survive in a hailstorm. Have to hide under an overpass if one was nearby?

RE: Crossing US Canada and back conflicting info on dogs

Ah. Another fine example of Public Servants Serving the Public. One hand not knowing what the other hand holds. I swear that public servants take classes on providing public inconvenience and and confusion! :R

RE: Has anyone ever tried a portable A/C in their class C???

When the AC on the boat died, we tried one (still using it actually). Figured $300 for a portable vs $1500 for a marine unit, it was worth an experiment. - You do need a window to put the hose thru. We used the dremel to shape it to fit a window. - I would definetly recomend the 2 hose units. It doesn't cool nearly as well as the old marine unit and I believe it is related to exhausing already cooled air which sucks in warm air from outside. Of course the 2 hose units are significantly more expensive. - Noise: Not significantly different than the roof AC in the trailer. - It does take up a good deal of space. - Draining the condensation is not an issue. It drains across the exhaust fan and gets flung out with the exhaust air (we have a heat mode and for some reason that did require draining the reservoir once or twice a day) The draining the water issue is relevant. However, my model had a water collection tank on the bottom of it. Not familiar with a two-hose system. Either way it has to be accounted for. It also had air intake from inside the vehicle with no input hose involved. It just took inside air thru a vent near top of the unit, filtered it and cooled it.

RE: Has anyone ever tried a portable A/C in their class C???

Also, since the AC is also a dehumidifier of sorts, you'll have to empty the water reservoir a couple of times per 24 hours or so depending on local temp and humidity.

RE: Just bought a 1976 Apache Ramada

Here we go again. Just finished up a COMPLETE re-build on my 1976 Amerigo TC and the hubby is on his way home with a 1976 Apache Ramada hard side pop up. Am I a glutton for punishment or what? Any tips or pointers about this camper would be appreciated. We are thinking just a partial re-build as the thing seems to be in decent shape. I have read these campers are pretty heavy duty... any comments? Some guys collect stamps! ;)

Good, I hope they're successful.

In some states it's classed as a motorcycle requiring appropriate license.

Good grief, what a Story! "Aside from that Mrs. Lincoln, how did you enjoy the play?".

RE: Welcome to redneck America

Floppy fish? Perhaps some on RV.NET already know about this little trick to kill a fish instantly and humanly. Take a mouthful of vodka or gin and squirt it into the fish's gills. Y'll know, kinda like spitting chaw tobacca? :W Works instantly! No fuss and no hammering the poor devil into submission. I assume any type of hard stuff would work also.

Perhaps a warning sign with blue collar vernacular is in order ... Such as "Don't Walk on the Tar, Mack"' :S

RE: GM truck recall - yes another one

President and CEO of GM asked the President and CEO of Ford can he name reasons that Ford has been so successful. He replied "I don't recall". (Saw that one on a facebook joke page)

RE: Lightning strikes!

As a segway ... NO ONE has ever survived a direct from the main lightening bolt. Those who have survived were hit, or nearly hit, by a streamer from the main bolt or shocked by the heated expanding air around the bolt. Anyone hit directly by the main bolt would be burned to a crisp from the temperature of up to 54,000 degrees F., five times hotter than the sun. If you hear the thunderous bang, you're OKAY. Just swallow your heart back down to where it belongs and have a beer.

RE: Locks for the Ramp

I use disc locks. This style. http://blog.selfstoragedeals.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/dic-lock.jpg I have the same lock on my storage garage for three years. It's supposed to be a pretty good theft deterrent because it's so tough. Try to put a say on it and it slips around. I live in MA and if I lost the keys I'd have to wait for the guy from RI to come and unlock it somehow or break it with a special tool that he has available.

RE: can you winter camp in a pop up?

I know someone who did on a regular basis, while out hunting for deer. One winter, they where huttled around the stove, with the furnace blasting, and shivering! But it was better off then in a tent, no stove or furnace! They lived in Grants Pass Oregon, but I have no idea where they where camping at. You might try one of these if you want to be really comfortable in the winter. Aliner.com You might also consider a Olympic Catalytic Safety heater. It puts out barely any CO gas, while something like Mr. Buddy heater can put out more CO and it not designed for such small enclosed spaces. Fred. The Mister Buddy Heater is designed to shut off instantly if it tips over - or - if the oxygen level gets too low. I've tested it for both events while tent camping many times. Only problem is moisture buildup on the inside of tent which is normal for unvented catalytic heaters. Of course, one must follow common sense as far as adequate ventilation is concerned!
