RE: Returning Phone Messages

Simple avoid the robo answering machine......press...... zero to get to a human. That is what I do when I hear the sing song If you know your parties extension, or for English press 1, that triggers my immediate reaction to press 0. This does not work with a regular answering machine, there you need to leave a message. navegator

RE: Returning Phone Messages

When giving the phone number to call back say each number clearly and enunciate it correct, say one as one and not something like hun and try not to bunch all the numbers as fast as you can, we do not know your number at all, if you want a call back make sure we can understand what you said in the first place, it is very simple: After the machine answers and you hear the beep say slow and clear My name is Xxx I'm calling for (reservation, product or what ever it may be that the caller needs) my phone number is area code X....X....X phone number is X...X...X---X...X...X...X That way we have the basic message and a phone number that can be understood and will be called back, the delete button is very useful so as not to waste time trying to understand garbled pone numbers that turn out to be all wrong. navegator

RE: Virginia CCW Heads Up

It is interesting that law abiding citizens have to go through hops of red tape and a common criminal can purchase a midnight special in less time than it takes me to write this. They have been carrying concealed weapons for a long time with out a permit, any idiot that you see with baggy pants falling off, due to the weapon pulling them down, and a loose T shirt and tattoo's all over done with lock up special ink color has one on him. navegator

RE: Tequila

Building a hotel with an RV park and having tours of the area and the production plants might be a viable option. They might even have a small train from Guadalajara to Tequila and back to take day visitors or have them stay at the hotel. navegator

RE: Babyboomer RV'ers Have Experienced it All!

The Beatles Paul Mcartney actually studied music and can and does read music, that is why symphony orchestras can perform their music, I hate to think what the new rap **** would sound with a full orchestra and an idiot talking trash, but that is OK each generation has it's own signature ours was drive ins out door movies from your car, how many actually saw the movie? I wonder. I did see the Beatles in Gothenburg Sweden, saw did not hear them at all, from all the girls screaming at the top of their lung capacity. My sister was born prior to the WWII and she would play music from the big war time bands and singers, I was born after the war, so the Beatles, the Doors, Peter, Paul & Mary, The Ventures, The Animals, etc are part of my generation as is Jass and the big band's. Took my driver's test in my dads 1948 Chevrolet but then I had learnt on the uncles tractor at 10 years old plowing fields, you got to aim that sucker right or you will ave furrows that look like ant trails. Today I am retired and enjoying my second youth, I can buy the cool toys and not get spanked for it. Every generation changes, change is inevitable. navegator

RE: My Cat Your Cat Some Other Cat

We had 3 cats two dogs and a bird at one time and a 4 foot king snake in the bamboo grove, this is so true of what they do one cat did nothing but sleep and eat, the second one would bring the decapitated mouse and the occasional live pigeon and chase it all over the dinning room and living room and it was a bloody mess to clean and the big cat would bring only the mouse alive unhurt and drop them off between 03:00 and 03:30 AM on our bed, some times the mouse would take off towards the door, that was OK since they invariably would run under the wall heater and fall down the hole and under the house, if they ran towards the closet I had to retrieve them in the morning and take them out to the yard, the problem was if they ran between the wife and me and under the covers, I always kept the welding glove in the night stand just in case, do cats do what is written above, yes, they are 2 year old kids fore ever. navegator

RE: Internet Signal Booster

We use a hot spot from AT&T since some of the camp grounds have very small or weak WiFi systems and do tend to get crowded in the evenings, this solved our problem, granted it is a phone line but it works even on the road as long as there is a cell tower in the area. navegator

RE: GPS In Mexico City

Not a car a big RV they can get stuck real quick in places trying to get to places, GPS instructions are notorious for taking the shortest route, and those some times are not meant to be driven even by cars, just letting people that use this devices that caution should be exercised and not rely on them as a given. Common sense is thrown out the window when they get and use one and use it blindly. navegator

RE: GPS In Mexico City

Be very careful using the GPS there are some streets that have low overhang electric wires and some gas stations and streets also have very steep gradients, entering them will scrape if not hang RVs with long overhangs, there is one gas station near the house and a couple of Avenidas that I can not use with my 24 foot class C because of the entry angle of the road, and I have to navigate from one side of the street to the other to avoid wires and tree branches, before going use Google maps and see where you are going, some times you can click on a store or restaurant and see the street view for an idea of what it looks like. navegator

RE: replacing carpeting in a motor home?

I took out the carpet by cutting the carpet around some of the cabinets and the dinette benches and under the couch, then installed the floating floor boards, they glue on to them self's and placed small strips of molding along the edges and regular carpet to wood anchors at the step well and kitchen area where it meets the linoleum, having a C class I also used an L angle where the cabin meets the cockpit drop off, it is much easier to maintain clean than the carpet, in winter we use runners for comfort when walking to the loo. Before laying the planks, place them on the longest run so that you have an idea where the smallest piece is going to land so that you do not end with a 2 to 4 inch piece at a high traffic area. navegator

RE: A heads up on power

If you need the 30 amp and 50 amp plugs are available at stores called "ferreteria" or "tlapaleria" also available at welding supply stores in major cites not little pueblos. Some home despots carry them but not all, otherwise they use the type that you plug and have to twist to connect for the 50 amp. navegator

RE: Winter boondocking in a Class C

We do it all the time, I put some antifreeze, the one used for the potable system in my grey and black tanks since they are out side this keeps the discharge valves and goodies from completely freezing, that way I can transfer the goods with the blue tote to the dump station, have one AGM marine battery and a solar panel, we also use oil lamps at night they provide light and some heat, this saves the battery for the furnace blower, and I have installed small LED lamps in the over head of the cabinets and in the kitchen and bathroom, also out side and on the steps, they are more than enough out in the boonies, give it a try we have been totally alone in National and State parks for days. navegator

RE: Fresh water docking station leak

Many times it will be the connections they use a metal band that is compressed and they sometimes are bad, or the connector to the valves, try to locate the actual leak before you start purchasing parts, it might just be a loose fitting that can be tightened by hand. navegator

RE: A heads up on power

Tequila, for what it's worth contact the local Comicion Federal de Electricidad rep where you are and point out to them that all this was caused by an over voltage from them and ask if they will pay for the damage, many times they do when they ruin tv's, fridges, well pumps, etc the worst that can happen is they say NO, it might be worth a try. Good luck navegator

RE: Any special precautions when mounting to edpm roof?

If drilling use a piece of wood big enough to neel on it and drill though the wood into the roof, this will maintain the membrane from turning and bunching on the drill bit. navegator

RE: Doe Size Matter in an RV?

The most important thing before you even purchase anything to tow, you need to see if you actually can tow with the SUV, they may look rugged and very macho and in reality they are more show than real muscle, is the radiator capable of towing up a long gradient with out boiling over, is the transmission rugged enough to actually last or just burn up a few miles down the road, if this SUV can tow then as stated before you need to mach the trailer weight, the total carrying capacity this means the pots and pans, folding chairs, cloths, bicycles, all the junk that you are eventually going to need on the trip and all the trinkets that you purchase plus the weight of the trailer matched to the towing capacity of the SUV. Once you have this information look for the rig that suits your family, do not let the salesmen steer you into a heavier unit, he does not care what happens after the sale, all they are interested in is the commission. We spent a couple of years until we found the correct unit, that was 15 years ago and still enjoy the RV. navegator

RE: FYI _ Good Points!

I enjoy watching these leviathan buses maneuver with characters that have no clue how to maneuver to get in and out of a pull through space, I must disappoint many a park spectator, back in in one move, we started with a small C class and have been in spots that only 18 foot trailers are allowed in State Parks for Christmas, totally alone with nature and some forest trails. Many of those that purchase the huge monsters are just bragging how much the unit costs, they are just keeping up with the Joneses, nothing new I guess they really do not enjoy nature or out doors, seem to be very bored people, they need to be entertained with all sort of amenities and things to do at these fancy big resorts, well they will not let me in any way, too small and not the right rig. Enjoying la vida loca. navegator

RE: Broke Swivel Stik end in black tank. Oops.

Supossing that the broken end made it to the tank, the outlet pipe is connected with a metal strap that can be unscrewed and the drain tube can be taken out and gives you access to the tank, that way it will be the minimum of work to retrieve the item, flush the tank several times with lots of water, fill tank, drain, repeat several times, then take he pipe off by unscrewing the metal band, and pull the tube out. If you do this do not use silicone to reseal, use the putty that the plumbers use or what is used to seal windows. Good luck it will be a bit stinky but it has to be done, chances are that it is sitting sideways on the outlet to the drain tube waiting to catch all the TP. navegator
