RE: Garmin Basecamp

I just bought a Garmin RV 760, it and basecamp have to be the worst designed GPS I ever laid my hands on. Of course I'm 72 years old and nothing comes easy these days. I don't have the time to find a replacement right now, but soon as I get home someone can have it for cheap on Ebay and I'll find something more user friendly.

Check with area gravel pits and scrap yards.

RE: Anyone using this battery disconnect switch in their TOAD?

It's not good on a vehicle that needs to have a full constance disconnect when being towed (such as the Ford Focus) even a slight momentary connection at the switch can cause issues. And bouncing/pot holes on the road this switch will close at times making a short term connection.

RE: Red Squirrel or Chip Monk

If you live within the city limits a gun can be trouble. But a nice pellet gun often does the trick and is quite.

RE: What is an exceptable DOT date code for new tires??

Bought mine through the FMCA plan and the tires were 9 weeks old when installed. I was told by my tire dealer that most times the tires bought with the FMCA plan are newer tires than buying off the shelve. My dealer did not carry my size and had to order. It was a 3 day wait.

RE: Help with Garmin RV 760lmt GPS

You can use 'voice command' and just say the new way point. The GPS will ask if you want it added to the current destination or set as a new destination. Really quite easy. It would be best to read the manual, that is what they are for. Lots of features you can miss if not. You are counting on information from people here who have taken the time to read the manual when you have not. This is why I ask here as I have read and re-read the manual but don't really find what I think answers my question on how to do what I want to do in a simple way. I think I may return the 760 as it appears to offer less than my old TomTom.

Help with Garmin RV 760lmt GPS

Just bought the Garmin RV 760lmt. I'm not good at reading manuals, hands on works better. I can get the 760 to plan a route ok, but mid way in the route I want to take a a different road than the one Garmin planned and I can't figure out how to make the change. Can anyone give me a helping hand or point me to a webpage that explains it in simple terms or maybe go PM to get me going?

Which GPS

I have a old Tom-Tom now, but wishing for something with a little larger screen. As the old eyes are not as good as they use to be I'm hoping the larger screen would help. I travel via Motorhome so I would like something that can be easily moved from it to the toad. My big concern is ease of using, not confusing to enter data. So what's out there in a GPS that might fill my needs??

RE: State Park permits - is there a better way?

I was checking reservations at one of our favorite state parks a couple weeks ago. The gal said the daily rate had gone up $3 this year and next year the entry permit fee was going up $3, but still electric only sites. Several private campgrounds in the same area for less money with full hookups, daily games and activity's for the kids.

RE: Grand Haven Michigan State Park IMPOSSIBLE to Reserve

deleted above poster said it all.

RE: Grand Haven Michigan State Park IMPOSSIBLE to Reserve

I think most all of the more popular State parks in Michigan are this way. Algonac state park on the east side of the state is near impossible to reserve more 5 days in a row. However in that park there are a number of non-reserve-able sites that can work. But you have to take a chance and go there ready to camp and then be lucky enough one is open. If your lucky you can stay the 15 days.

RE: How private are those bathroom/bedroom slides?

I think about sound more than I do someone seeing through a crack. A large group of us were sitting outside our motorhome one time and I went in to use the bathroom. Wow one of those big large loud farts came out. When I went back out one of the group said you really had some gas didn't you and everyone laughed.

RE: USPS mail forwarding vs ???

We have used the USPS forwarding service for over 10 years. You can have the mail forwarded to any address that will accept it (some campgrounds, another home address etc.) We go to the same area each winter and have a P.O. box there. So we have our home mail forwarded to the P.O. Box. Only problem we have had is several times at the beginning our post office where the box is will reject our forwarded mail and send it back to our home address, of course when that returned mail gets back home it is again forwarded to the P.O. box. 2 or 3 times we have had our mail go around in circles for over 3 weeks before we could get it straightened out. What we learned to do is as soon as we get to our winter area, notify the post office where our box is to open our box to allow mail to come there. It's not suppose to be necessary to do that, but it works. As someone else said all mail will not get forwarded, so if you should have any mail that is stamped do not forward you will not get it.

RE: Can a tire explode from Over-inflation?

Very unlikely a good tire will explode from being over inflated. But they are most likely to blow off at the bead before the tire will give out. I have seen that happen. For as long as I can remember truck tires have been required to be in a steel cage when being inflated. Older truck tires that had the steel ring (name escapes me right now) killed many people while inflating them.

RE: Topping up Engine Oil ?

I certainly wouldn't worry about a quart low on a 5 or 6 quart gas engine. I'm sure your oil capacity is well over that and no need to worry about it even down 2 quarts. That's the reason they have ok range on the dip stick. If it's down to the add oil point it's sure lower than 1/2 quart.

RE: Telescoping towbar

When possible unhook on a level area and the tow and tow vehicle in line (not on a angle to one another. Yes the newer tow bars are much easier to unhook.

RE: Packets or Liquid for Black water tank

I'm a packet user, we dump black and gray every 7 days. 65 degrees and below I don't use any packets, 65 to 75 I use one packet, 75 and up I use two packets. We have a 50 gallon black tank. After dumping I add about 5 gallons of water to the black tank with the packets if used.
