RE: bed rest

When my mom was bed ridden she filled up many hours a day with coloring books for adults...(using colored pencils). Example: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/ed/7f/7d/ed7f7ddb532365090cf04dc9a3defb89.jpg

RE: Talladega and the Chase

Good point, so I'll discuss racing. One factor in the wreckfest carnage that was Talladega last week was the fact that rain was constantly imminent. Everyone was driving very aggressively every lap after halfway trying to get the lead in case of a rain out.

RE: airline profits

Not hard to see why profits are up.... This is what I experienced last time I flew: http://medlicker.com/files/2015/02/11/sardines-in-can-37c1d017a4.jpg height=200

RE: Talladega and the Chase

Just for interest sake... 35 of the 40 cars were involved in some kind of accident. The cost in damaged cars neared 10 MILLION dollars across the grid!

RE: Pull-out Bike Rack

Welcome to the Forum: If this is your set up? Looks like they are using some kind of strap or bungee cord. Hope this helps. http://www.keystonerv.com/media/2925458/cougar_-333mks_rack.jpg height=350

RE: Talladega and the Chase

Not exactly.... keep the Chase ... I just don't like the elimination part of it.. Have a Chase, but give the Cup to the driver with the most points in the Chase.. (everyone who makes the Chase is in until the end).

RE: Things I don't understand

I'm wondering what does it matter what, "another guy," does or doesn't do? If someone does or doesn't do any of the items on your list, it sure doesn't affect me in any way. We don't have a television in our brand new RV had it deleted when we ordered...Gosh, I guess that should be on the, Things I don't understand," list too.

Talladega and the Chase

For you Nascar fans: Convince me that Talladega should be part of the Chase with the elimination format. (I sure don't think it should be a Chase track). Today's Talladega race somewhere around 30 cars involved in wrecks. Only about 10 even were running and crossed the finish line at the end.

RE: Computer Won't Shut Down?

Go to Task Manager then right click on any running task and pick 'end task' This will shut down any task that might be running and hung up and then should allow you to shut down your computer normally.

RE: Water problems!

Unfortunately it sounds like you do have a leak somewhere - even a small one can cause the pump to cycle continuously. Could be anywhere in the entire water system..even a small crack in one of the fittings or, or course, a cracked pipe. Not uncommon after a winter and freeze when, as you say, "not winterized properly." Good luck with it. (I know I wasn't much help.)

RE: Which part of campground should I park in

Camp in the best site you can get. Doesn't matter if you are in a $3500 pop up or a $350,000 motor home. Our preference is large secluded sites. Something like this will due very nicely.... http://www.reserveamerica.com/marketing/html/acm/__shared/assets/RV_Destinations2326.jpg

RE: Reaching out for advice

Our insurance company gave us the name and location of a couple of local repair shops that they worked closely with. We picked one of them. They did a first rate job, on time and handled all of the paper work.

RE: What are these pieces called

Did you mean that the wanted $250 for them? If so I agree it's too much. But if they are $2.50 - good grief, pay it and get on down the road.

RE: New TV! Blue Ox too high now.

I think I am a little confused...I often am. As far as the tilt....the tilt on a Blue Ox is preset, you can't adjust that. As far as the height...can you flip the shank or buy a new longer one?

RE: Venting

Speaking of tree trimming...this was literally less than 3 feet from our slide (Oregon State Park). I asked them to let me move our trailer, they said they would be done before we could even get our truck stated. Another adventure and another story we can tell. http://i162.photobucket.com/albums/t280/oilchange/General%20Archive/FtStevens_080409_0021_edited-1.jpg height=400
