RE: Question about knee replacement for those that have one.

I never had it done, but a military buddy and my son had it done at the VA and they have both had the knee come apart after about 6 months and had to have them re-done.

RE: Very disappoined with Directv

I have had Direct TV for 21 years, but I find that there is just not much to watch since AT&T took over. I really don't know what that has got to do with it. But when we are in the RV, I always seem to get good reception.

Tastes like chicken

Tastes Like Chicken?? A man is caught sitting at a make-shift campfire by a forest ranger, and to the ranger's horror, the man is eating a bald eagle. The man is consequently put in jail for the crime. On the day of his trail, the conversation went something like this: JUDGE: "Do you know that eating a bald eagle is a federal offense?" MAN: "Yes I do. But if you let me argue my case, I'll explain what happened." JUDGE: "Proceed." MAN: "I got lost in the woods. I hadn't had anything to eat for two weeks. I was so hungry. Next thing I see is a Bald Eagle swooping down at the lake for some fish. I knew that if I followed the Eagle I could maybe steal the fish. I caught up with the eagle who lighted upon a tree stump to eat the fish. I threw a stone toward the eagle hoping he would drop the fish and fly away. Unfortunately, in my weakened condition, my aim was off, and the rock hit the eagle squarely on his poor little head, and killed it. I thought long and hard about what had happened, but figured that since I killed it I might as well eat it since it would be more disgraceful to let it rot on the ground." JUDGE: "The court will take a recess while I consider your testimony." (15 minutes goes by and the judge returns.) JUDGE: "Due to the extreme circumstance you were under and because you didn't intend to kill the eagle, the court will dismiss the charges." The Judge then leans over the bench and whispers: "If you don't mind my asking, what does a bald eagle taste like?" MAN: "Well your honor, it is hard to explain. The best I can describe it is somewhere between a California Condor and a Spotted Owl."

RE: Anyone ever drive off with a slide out left out?

Yes indeed, drove thru Cheyenne WY. with the bedroom slide out and almost all the way back to Texas Because the slide went out but would not come back in. No repair place could be found. About half way back to Texas, we stopped for a little rest. Hit the retract and in it came.Came on back home.

RE: Age Restrictions on Class A's

I was asked just last week how old was my coach. I was trying to make a reservation. When I told her it was going on 11 years old she said she would have to look at it first. I have noticed the age restriction is mostly at RV Resorts, have never been asked at a RV park. I do want to stay at the resort just a couple of nights. As daughter and son-in-law will be at the same place and it is the closest one to the wedding we are going to attend.

RE: motorized awning tie downs

Ours is an 06 Adventurer The problem is we have, one end that doesn't clip back as tight as the other so I can push it back then stick a piece of Velcro around the one that don't clip as tight. I have a bamboo poll that I use to remove it and also put it back. Best part we don't use the awing that much. The repair man said it would need a new metal cover to fix it. It's over $500.00

Cost of Insurance (Home & Auto)

I was just wondering today, with all the destruction caused by the hurricanes. I bet insurance rates will be much, higher this coming year. Because the insurance companies will have to make up their losses.

Internet goes down

I was just wondering if the rest of the internet service providers around the country goes down as much as AT&T here in my neck of the woods. I'm in north central TX. and mine is down at least 45% of the time. I use to have "Clear wire" and I don't remember it ever going down. but it went out of business and I switched to AT&T. It's not just me but all my surrounding neighbors goes down also. It has been reported many times but no change.

RE: Allied Insurance

Sounds like you may have been at fault, you hit him. He didn't hit you. You are suppose to be able to control your vehicle at all times. Just my opinion.

RE: Removing the plastic shield from Motor Home

HERE is the latest thread in this I asked about pressure washing. I guess no one has tried it. I guess I will give it a try.

Removing the plastic shield from Motor Home

Don't think I have ever read on here. Has any one ever tried a pressure washer to remove that plastic shield?? I do know that a son-in-law tried to pressure wash their coach one time and he washed part of a decal off before he realized it. But our coach is full body paint. I'm thinking about trying it. Any one got any good or bad news about trying a pressure washer.??

Subject: Truisms for Pilots

Subject: Truisms for Pilots No matter what else happens, fly the airplane. Forget all that stuff about thrust and drag, lift and gravity; an airplane flies because of money. It's better to be down here wishing you were up there, than up there wishing you were down here. If you're ever faced with a forced landing at night, turn on the landing lights to see the landing area. If you don't like what you see, turn them back off. A check ride ought to be like a skirt, short enough to be interesting but still be long enough to cover everything. Speed is life, altitude is life insurance. No one has ever collided with the sky. Always remember you fly an airplane with your head, not your hands. Never let an airplane take you somewhere your brain didn't get to five minutes earlier. Don't drop the aircraft in order to fly the microphone. An airplane flies because of a principle discovered by Bernoulli, not Marconi. "Unskilled" pilots are always found in the wreckage with their hand around the microphone. If you push the stick forward, the houses get bigger; if you pull the stick back, they get smaller. (Unless you keep pulling the stick back-then they get bigger again.) Hovering is for pilots who love to fly but have no place to go. The only time you have too much fuel is when you're on fire. Flying is the second greatest thrill known to man. Landing is the first! Everyone already knows the definition of a 'good' landing is one from which you can walk away. But very few know the definition of a 'great' landing. It's one after which you can use the airframe another time. The probability of survival is equal to the angle of arrival. IFR: I Follow Roads. You know you've landed with the wheels up when it takes full power to taxi. Those who hoot with the owls by night, should not fly with the eagles by day. A helicopter is a collection of rotating parts going round and round and reciprocating parts going up and down - all of them trying to become random in motion. Helicopters can't really fly - they're just so ugly that the earth immediately repels them. Pilots believe in clean living. They never drink whiskey from a dirty glass. Things which do you no good in aviation: Altitude above you. Runways behind you. Fuel in the truck. Half a second ago. Approach plates in the car. The airspeed you don't have. If God meant man to fly, He'd have given him more money. What's the difference between God and fighter pilots? God doesn't think he's a fighter pilot. Flying is not dangerous; crashing is dangerous. A good simulator check ride is like successful surgery on a corpse. Asking what a pilot thinks about the FAA is like asking a tree what it thinks about dogs. Trust your captain but keep your seat belt securely fastened. An airplane may disappoint a good pilot, but it won't surprise him. Any pilot who relies on a terminal forecast can be sold the Brooklyn Bridge . If he relies on winds-aloft reports he can be sold Niagara Falls. The friendliest flight attendants are those on the trip home. Good judgment comes from experience and experience comes from bad judgment. Being an airline pilot would be great if you didn't have to go on all those trips. Aviation is not so much a profession as it is a disease. The nicer an airplane looks, the better it flies. There are three simple rules for making a smooth landing. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are. It's a good landing if you can still get the doors open. Passengers prefer old captains and young flight attendants. The only thing worse than a captain who never flew as copilot is a copilot who once was a captain. It's best to keep the pointed end going forward as much as possible. If an earthquake suddenly opened a fissure in a runway that caused an accident, the FAA would find a way to blame it on pilot error. Any attempt to stretch fuel is guaranteed to increase headwind. A thunderstorm is never as bad on the inside as it appears on the outside. It's worse. It's easy to make a small fortune in aviation. You start with a large fortune. A male pilot is a confused soul who talks about women when he's flying, and about flying when he's with a woman. A fool and his money are soon flying more airplane than he can handle. The last thing every pilot does before leaving the aircraft after making a gear up landing is to put the gear selection lever in the 'down' position. Try to keep the number of your landings equal to the number of your takeoffs. Takeoffs are optional. Landings are mandatory. You cannot propel yourself forward by patting yourself on the back.

RE: 06 Winnegago, protective film on vehicle when purcnased.

Our coach sits facing the sun every morning till about noon. All it has done is make that film crack more. I can't find any one that will take it off . They don't even want the job. They all told me it would have to be repainted.

RE: slide out operation

My Winnebago Adventurer will start and can be driven with the slides out. The reason I know I was in Cheyenne, WY. one time and the bedroom slide would not go in. I drove right thru town too the repair place with the slide out. I just had to be careful and watch where I was going.

RE: Monaco or similar. Have you swapped out Dinette for a booth?

I swapped my booth for a table & chairs. but after about 4 trips we went back and put the booth back in. The table and chairs was just not as comfortable.
