RE: Brain Fart for those who don't have washing machine onboard

OOPS! Sorry.

RE: Brain Fart for those who don't have washing machine onboard

I have seen on here or another forum that you take a 5 gallon bucket, drill a hole in the top and place a commode plunger in the hole. Put clothes and detergent in and churn for a while, then drain, clean water and repeat. That seems like a lot of trouble, but the kids might think it's fun....at least the first time. Could also be used as a butter churn. Just load it with 4 1/2 gallons of heavy cream. :B

RE: thieves at Rondeau

We had a rum bottle stolen off our picnic table one night. Unfortunately for the thieve it contained naphtha fuel. The original naphtha can got dropped and punctured and the only available empty, none plastic, container was a rum bottle and necessity being the mother of invention, the bottle became a fuel container. I often wonder if the thief survived? LOL. Similar to a thread somewhere in here about someone who would gift wrap his trash/garbage in a box and leave it in his pickup bed and park in a shopping mall lot. When he got back to the P/U his trash/garbage was gone!

RE: thieves at Rondeau

Not saying that its right, but put the cooler and beer away.......Kids are kids.....and they were that way when we were kids too. That's odd. The inference that kids were that way when you were young? I was a kid once also and myself and my friends NEVER went around stealing other peoples' property.

RE: Try this route to get membership straightened out...

Judging by the above problems, are we sure that the GS sites aren't actually being administered by the Government? :E

RE: something different or maybe i'm old

So you never rode your bike 'hands free' as a kid ? Yup. But the difference is I was paying attention to where I was going. X2

RE: Lightning and RV'ing

I'm thinking that one thing sure about lightning is that there's nothing sure about lightning. I've got caught in a few lightning storms offshore and had lightning hit so close to the boat that I could see the water vaporizing. I was definitely the highest point around and didn't get hit, thank God. When I'm in the camper, I hope that the metal frame structure would offer some degree of protection. Pulling the power cord ahead of time might not be a bad idea. A METAL framed RV will act as a Farraday Cage and you probably won't be hurt. Not sure about the RV though -- unspecified results there.

RE: The Rig

Welcome to the Forums. Nice lookin' combo. Red trucks are cool! Like a red truck? Go to EARTHROAMER.COM home page at their their latest and greatest. :C And, only 471K!! She's worth every penny ;);) They are expensive alright. Looking at the options list of the Provan Tiger and the EarthRoamer, I noticed that the Air Ride Suspension is 1/2 the cost on the Tiger as compared to the EarthRoamer! But what a sweet BOV if you've gots the moolah. On the other hand, kinda tough to remain inconspicuous, LOL. But the OP's rig is an attention getter alright, I like it.

RE: A Skunk died on our campsite...

Pour a can of tomato juice over the area. Hopefully, the park owner removed the skunk!! X2. I used to raise Alaskan Malamutes and whenever one of them got zapped by a skunk I gave them a hand-bath of gallon or two of tomato juice. Bottom line is that tomato juice is better to smell than skunk juice! Or, can you bury the remains underground?

RE: Hope you can read and write spanish

I sometimes wonder if things would be any different if the US actually had an official language... Might not be the "official" language but it is still the most commonly used language. And, keep in mind that the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights and our Constitution were all written in English! :W

RE: Smoke odod in the coach

A small ozone generator will do the job. Be sure to follow the instructions. X2 Ozone generators can be rented at tool rental shops. Ozone generators are what home restorers use after a house fire to eliminate smoke and stale water odors, etc. Be very careful with an Ozone generator It can be really bad for your health, I had to remove one in my house because of its adverse effects. HERE Is why That article makes it seem pretty dangerous. I wonder if it is as dangerous as the article makes it sound. You're right ... it's dangerous if not used PROPERLY. Just like a propane furnace, water heater, stove, fridge, generator, exhausts, mineral spirits, etc. If one stays in the house or the RV while it's running, it's dangerous. The ozone generator messes around with the smoke molecules inside the RV/house, the cabinets, the furniture, everywhere, and eliminates the odor. I myself would not hang around with anything that messes with molecules. That's my point in the previous two entries entry above--seal the RV, turn the ozone generator on and leave the unit for 24 hours or so, as the generator directions dictate. If one can't, or won't follow the instructions included with the generator rental, then they've got no business using one. JMO

HERE Is why I scanned the named article rather briefly and I saw no mention of the most important part of the operation of an ozone generator in MHO. That is - SEAL THE HOUSE/RV SHUT, TURN ON GENERATOR AND THEN STAY AWAY FOR 24-36 HOURS. When done, enter RV and open all doors, windows, drawers, etc. to get fresh air in. Bottom line - all odors will be gone!! Black tank may smell fresher too if toilet valve is propped open? Check instructions when renting/purchasing as I'm not up-to-date of effect on non-canned foodstuffs. IE: cereals, snacks, etc.
