RE: Weird question re: emergency procedures while driving

I have never thought of that, but we all drive, and the thought never occurred to me and it is a good idea, just as discussing what to do if a home fire breaks out ...thanks for sharing the idea

RE: Pop-Up Camper Pops its Top on Expressway

That would be scary for all concerned. Luckily (or so it seems) no one was injured...That is the reason I always use a check off sheet so I do not miss anything.

RE: Portable Ice maker

I just use tap water, I haven't had a problem and the ice tastes the same and chills just as good..

RE: Carbon Monoxide/LP detector issue

Low voltage from the battery can also cause alarms to go off...

RE: Stupid mistake nearly cost me

I always use a check off list, so I do not forget anything such as disconnecting the safety chains or anything else, I use one for hook up too and this includes setting chocks in place. (This I learned the hard way). Glad it was not worse than it was..

RE: Portable Pet fencing around RV

We have two metal ones that fold up neatly, and hook together, I am sure it takes up less room in the truck and is lighter and easier to handle and store . This one looks nicer but something like this would not be very hard to make however for the price of materials someone could buy a couple of the portable fences and have change left over.

New BAL Leveler storwage box

I decided to make a box to hold the BAL Leveler. I took 2X6 and ripped down to 4 1/8 inch, cut to length, then Since I had a couple of 2X2 I cut these off for the bottom, I bought a piece of 1/4 inch oak plywood from Lowes and cut it to size. I glued and air stapled the plywood to the 2X6 sides. I had a piece of the plywood left and put it on top of the 2X2 bottoms. I then used a piece of 1 X4 on each side of the top for hand holds. The leveler just fits in and now the screw will stay clean and the leveler wi easier to handle and to pack.

RE: Electric stabs questions

Mine are also manual, I let them down until snug then turn about 1 extra turn, they are not for leveling, just stabilizing, I also cut 2X6 18 inches long and place this down for the legs, I put a coffee cup type screw in the ends of my boards and took a piece of dowel rod and put a coffee cup screw in it, I don't have to bend to pick up or set in place that way and it save my old knees and back.

RE: window air cond

My 2016 Coleman Lantern has an 8000 unit built in, It works outstanding and we have to tun it down. Plus side: not sticking up on the roof, so clearance is lower, if it dies I can go to Wally World and buy another for 150.00 or so. I do not have to worry about replacing gaskets, leaks etc and I do not have to go on the roof.. I have had one in several pop ups and they work great, I usually had to make a piece to funnel the air upward because they were so low in the unit.

RE: Wondering about insurance thru National General

I used it for a long time, and only had to use it once but they paid off quickly. But got tired of my other company raising the rates higher every 6 months and us with no points against us, I went back to Natl. General..

RE: DirecTV (ATT) changing their policy?

We finally gave up on Direct and have been with Dish Network for the last 10 years with no problems. Direct told us, when we moved in that it would take 2 weeks, I hooked it up myself but then cancelled it because, they also wanted to charge me 75.00 for a pole to hold the HD antenna up,. Dish came right out and we had HD that same day. But for the prices these people charge it seems they could have newer programs instead of so many re run-on top of re-runs..Netflix keeps up up on newer and better movies than either of the satelite companies.

RE: running minni fridge on outside outlet

120 V does not usually use fuses, it uses breakers so if it does trip and you cannot run it,and want the 110V outside plug all you have to do is re-set the breaker. You should have no problem with it tho. as they are very low amp units.

RE: Good info for buyers of recently-orphaned RVs

Interesting info. thanks for sharing. I guess I might have to do something, if my manufacturer goes under I do not see that in the near future tho. but we never know in this day and age

RE: HELP!...What can I do to keep fridge cold and food safe?

I also carry a large cooler and put frozen gallons of Iced tea in it, I have never needed to use it but the ice cold tea never goes to waste.. The first thing I do to the reefer in a new unit is install small fans to remove the excess heat..

RE: Rookie Mistake

Had a big bowl of chili that came out of the reefer I forgot to lock the door securely, what a mess, good thing is we turned the beagle loose on it and he cleaned up most of it, but a broken bottle of cane syrup can make a huge mess too. It is all live and learn and hopefully remember our mistakes..

Kodak

We had to have our very old Aussie put down this morning. He was mostly deaf and blind, and got along well in the fenced yard, but he had lost use of his legs and could / would not eat and it seemed he was suffering so it was time, it was extremely hard to do as we really loved him and will miss him terribly as will the other young Aussie and two watch dogs in the yard.

Mess at CW in Dothan, al

We went to CW in Dothan today, we could not get a parking place due to one entrance and the entire parking lot spaces blocked with RV's. I asked what the deal was and was told that the district manager required it so there would only be one entrance (going into the store and people would buy more that way) One fact for sure a big unit could not be able to get into CW as the other entrance is to narrow and if he did get in, there would be no parking space. Needless to say we left (no parking available) and went down the street to spend our money. There were several cars following us out too and went to the same dealer down the street. I will not return until this mess, (and I state that lightly)is straightened up.
