RE: Microsoft S & T 2013 no construction updates?

I have the same issue and suspect that due to Microsoft discontinuing S&T there will be no more updates.

RE: Arrrghhh! MICE!

Just caught Mickey with the original Victor mouse trap. Unfortunately, Minnie has just shown her face. So hopefully we'll get them all. DW hates mice and will jump a mile if she sees one. We're on a camping trip and this is ruining it a bit.

RE: GPS

We had the Rand McNally, functions were OK but unit quality was horrible. Locking up, screen brightness, short battery life, and after the 2nd unit (camping world replaced first unit) Rand phone service was terrible... We now have the Garmin RV760, great unit, quality, and American made with American service. As far as the RV features vs driving without the trailer, simply switch it to car mode and it will ignore the RV settings. I recommend the Garmin . I recommend the Garmin too. However, it is made in Taiwan which doesn't quite qualify as American built :)

RE: Help with water supply issue from fresh water tank

take air and back blow into the tank through the suction line see if it blows freely into the tank That was my thought too but was beat to it by a few minutes.

RE: 5th Wheel landing gear

If your Jayco is like mine you have a separate 12v wire and fuse that feeds the landing gear from the battery. I had blown that fuse and experienced the same symptoms. That's the first place I'd check. Use a meter, don't trust looking at a fuse. Or replace it with a known good one and see if that solves the problem.

RE: Any Pilgrim Owners with manuals??

I had a Pilgrim TT and the manual wasn't worth the paper it was printed on. Pretty much like any manufacturer. As Donn0128 says, not worth the effort.

RE: How do you secure your portable Progressive Industries EMS

Just don't leave it sitting on your bumper when you pull out. I lost mine on the Bluegrass Pkwy last year doing just that. I had gotten distracted helping a fellow camper and forgot all about it :(

RE: Sliders

Not often enough unfortunately. I put the front cap thru the rear window when I got stuck in front of a low bridge.

RE: Coax outlet for satellite

Just did this over the weekend. In my case my 5th is equipped for satellite, but the connector is in the bedroom not the living room where I would like to have it. Added second satellite connection I bought the outside fitting last year when I was in RV surplus country in Indiana. Need it for the bedroom though. Just need to get up the courage to drill the hole. In the meantime I've been using one of those flat cables for window entry (on the storage door, not a window).

RE: slow online order processing

Placed online order on Monday 4/28 and received on 5/2. Never received an update as to shipped status and tracking number. Certainly can't complain about the turnaround time.

RE: Satellite Connection Issue

If you can, check continuity between the outside jack and the inside. On my last trailer, had the same issue, turns out the F connector fitted to the outside jack was shorted. Repaired the connector and all was good.

RE: Is it time to throw in the towel?

How about grandparents? Do your parents or in-laws live close enough to watch the kids in the summer for two weeks? Bruce The grandparents are the child care problem. My parents are unavailable in the summer. Her parents are gone for months at a time, mostly in the summer. Her ex-inlaws are responsible (divorce agreement) for the Monday - Friday childcare during the day. They have decided to take 2 weeks off in June, starting last summer. Last June, we got lucky that my wifes parents were in town and they watched the kids during the day. This year, we won't be so lucky. And they are not about to change their schedule to be able to watch them - seperate issue. Surprised nobody commented on this. Does the divorce agreement allow for a 2 week vacation every year? If not, the way the OP worded this would mean that the ex-inlaws are responsible 52 weeks a year. It would strike me that they get their vacation when you decide to take your vacation and camp with the kids.

RE: doc fee and out of state fees.

Just negotiate an out the door price. How they put the various numbers on the contract is their business, as long as the total price adds up to what we agreed on.

RE: workamping, taxes, and social security

It varies from one place to another. Most places living on site is a condition of employment and therefore not taxable. Other places have been audited by the IRS and found in violation of the rules so the sites are now treated as taxable income. Can't remember the name right now but I think there's a big outfit in AZ where all sites are taxable now. Cal-Am went to issuing w-2's a few years ago for workampers which makes you an employee. Whether it's taxable or not would depend on your entire tax situation. I just plug all the numbers into TurboTax and let the software figure it out.
