RE: T Mobile Coverage in the West

Planning 3 months in California, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, Montana and Colorado. What is T-Mobile coverage like in these areas? We used T Mobile here on the western slope of Co. for 2 weeks. Got rid of it and went back to AT&T reason ? You would get 2 miles out of town and everything dropped.. and you couldn't get connected again until you got back into town.

RE: RV roof "replacement options"

I applied a liquid rubber over my about 15 year old roof 2 years ago, and was very satisfied with the results. It cost about $450, as opposed to several thousand dollars for a new rubber roof. X2

RE: Testing backup camera

Nine times out of ten its the connector wire and not the camera.(wire going to monitor) And its a real ***** trying to replace this yourself. The rv tech did it for one hour labor (75.00)

RE: A Really Accurate Fridge Thermometer

We bought a cheap thermometer from walmart and haven't had anything spoil yet. Not necessary to go overboard with these things.After all your rv is not a lab.controlled devise. But its your dollars. In our case you can't argue with success.

RE: The infamous Norcold refrigerator! Rant!

There are so many who just love residential fridges in their RV's. I have 3 RV's and all three now have residential fridges (one is a dorm room fridge). They will all run on 12V with an inverter while traveling. No good for propane, but then again, it's nice having frozen ice cream rather than nut filled chocolate slime. :) I won't bash Norcold or Dometic, but I will say I'm VERY happy with these fridges. They are much cheaper too (especially nice used ones on Craigslist). Yeah but installing them yourself is a real PITA. I'll stick with my 19 yr old Norcold which has never given me any problem and keeps the fridge @ 32/0 deg in any heat anywhere.When it goes out I'll probably get another one..Or be off the road by then because I 'm an old guy.!!

RE: water filters

My original question was concerning canister type filters in which the filter and canister are all one unit.And it is impossible to drain all the water out of them. Yes they are good for one year. but you can't let the old water just sit in them and think they are good to go a few months down the road and continue to use them until that year is up. I realize there are filters that you hook up on the end of your hose and yes they can be changed out rather cheaply. But canister types are 50 to 60 bucks a pop.And to buy a new one for a 2 week vacation is just ludicrous. So I think putting them in the freezer might be the answer. How many do that ?

water filters

We have an under sink water filter. These things cost about fifty bucks for just the canister. You can't completely empty them. We use our moho for about 3-4 weeks out of the year. Cant we somehow use these again instead of throwing 50 bucks away and buying new ones just to use for a couple of weeks. Thats awful expensive filtered water. Besides with the exception of taste which is bad in some states we're not sure filtering campground water is all that necessary.We've been using rv parks( only) for several years and never caught anything from drinking their water. After all the owners drink it too.But it does help with the taste. I've heard you can freeze them so nothing bad starts growing in them. Just thought I would ask your opinions on reusing.

RE: TV antenna on the ceiling

but your step is a whole lot cheaper And less likely to break / fail - as long as you remember to crank it down before you hit the road. One method we use so we don't drive away with the batwing extended is to hang your ignition key from the batwing handle. Works every time. No key no start..

RE: All these questions on routing???

I wish someone had told me about that horrible road going from I-70 south through Moab Utah.and beyond 191 and 160 (heading to Phoenix) I've been on some pretty awful roads but these two liked to shake my moho apart. I mean these are REAL bad. Avoid them if you can. Worse than any road I traveled on in Europe..

RE: Any one under 55 own a class A?

Don't you hate it when some guy refers to his wife as "the wife" like she was some inanament (however you spell it) object..My wife calls me "The Donald" and I hate that too.I'm 80 yrs old and get no respect.(ala Rodney Dangerfield) Age has nothing to do with what you drive. Drive what ever you want..Only folks over 80 should drive class A's though...(sometimes my b.s. cracks me up)

RE: Frig-Fix by Smart RV products

So when I get a new frig should I get a norcold or Dominic My Norcold is 19 years old and works just as well as my in house fridge. It can be over 100 deg. out and the Norcold stays at 38-42 deg. and no fans anywhere on the unit.Have never had a problem. In my case it works flawlessly. Not many people can say that.

RE: Facebook.....weird language

log out Facebook and don't log back in. The only thing you will lose is the strange language, there is nothing else there of any value. you could loose your identity. Happens all the time on this useless forum.. I disagree, it is the way I keep in touch with the family 1500 miles away. We are there because that is the preferred way the Nieces and Nephews and great Nieces and great Nephews communicate these days. are you seeing the strange font anywhere else online or just on facebook?

RE: AC temp

Our air conditioner works alot better if we are parked under a big ole shade tree... Roy Ken And therein lies the answer. As most know by now its almost impossible to create a comfortable temp inside the coach while it is setting in full sun and 100 deg outside. Shade really helps big time..Ita so hot around Primm and Las Vegas Nv we had to park the coach and get a room for the night.The room was nice and cold. It was unlivable in the moho.And the a/c are in top shape.

RE: 6 blown tires and bent axel- help!

If this isn't proof that anyone buying a new trailer should automatically upgrade the tires I don't know what is. The chances of having 5 bad tires is slim to none. I'll bet you have axel alignment problems I had same problem yrs ago and thats what it was..
