RE: Grey water dumping

It's not allowed in Fl. state Park campgrounds, and is really not a good idea to put the sink, shower etc. gray water on the ground, it can and will attract ants, and other bugs due to the grease and food particles and if kept in the tank very long can stink too.

RE: Eating out

From my days of Backpacking and canoe camping (9still do that) I plan the meals and put each meal in a zip lock or vacuum seal, then each days food goes into a larger zip lock bag so all three meals are in a bag and labeled, I pull out a days complete meals each day they are labeled for. We usually plan to eat out once a week for a break. I do keep all my spices etc. and some staples in the RV and enough canned stuff for a couple of standby /emergency meals are also kept there.

RE: To drain or not to drain? Another ice chest question.

I have a portable ice maker so I drain the cooler when, I remember' or leave the plug out for automatic drain. BTW: Rock salt is what is used to making ice cream..

RE: Bumper carrier fail..

Not a safe thing to do unless the unit is designed to haul on the rear bumper, and most aren't , also the added weight in the rear can and does cause sway. Luckily no one was injured.

RE: Found...Inexpensive backup camera

I was really lucky, a good friend bought one at a yard sale, never been used and still in the box for $5.00 and gave it to me, works good but to be honest I mostly use the two magnetic, extendable rods with yellow balls on them, I use that to align then with the back up camera I can see that I am under the ball.

Without an oven how do you get biscuits and gravy for breakfast? MY Coleman does not have an oven, I either use a Dutch oven or in bad weather or if I am just plain lazy, I use a medium size toaster oven I like to do most of my cooking outside on a Coleman stove that I converted to LP or a LP grill and also over a fire with the DO

RE: fantastic fan create-a-breeze

I got the vortex1 , it fit right into my vent without having to remove the vent, all work was done inside the TT., My vent was non-powered so I had to run wires about 18" to get power, it was an easy job and everything was included, The vortex1 is single speed and the vortex II is multi speed, but is cheaper than create a breeze. You can check on amazon for the price.

RE: *Updated* Fresh Water tank fell off while driving

It should be under warranty, if it is new. I have seen it a few times back in the day when I worked for a TV dealership. but it is not a common thing to happen.

RE: I was threatened today!

This scam is old and still rattles people, Just had an up tick in my area, the local law enforcement put a notice out that it is a scam, that IRS does not call but will send a certified letter if they want you. Seems there is a new / scam scam every week and someone always falls for it. Remember on the other scams, if it seems too good to be true, it most likely is.

RE: TT plugged in at home?

I would not recommend using a 15 amp circuit to run the AC the amperage is too close for comfort it is better to get a dedicated 30 amp. circuit ran (or 50amp if needed) with a higher amp. service you can run most things with a 30 amp it is not recommended to run the AC and the microwave at the same time. I am not sure about the 50 amp running them together. Good luck on the search for your new unit and happy camping..

RE: Is it normal for a new TT to have been used?

I agree, bottom line, it is used and should be treated and priced as such. When I worked at a RV dealership that is the way it was done and treated as a demo unit.

RE: I made a big mistake

I know what you are going thru, I am 74 and after a lower back operation we decided that the pop up was not the way to go, and that I had to start working smarter (finally) we traded it in on a Coleman lantern TT and the first thing I did was put an electric jack on the front, and many mods to make life easier for us, also if a new idea comes along then I check it out. We will not give up or camping but will continue to upgrade things to make it easier and more enjoyable. Good luck and Happy Camping

RE: Electrical problem

Make a simple and inexpensive tester as shown on myrv.us/electric. Click on Outlet Testing. Click on 50 Amp Outlet Tester. Parts available at home improvement stores. The first thing I do when arriving at a new site is plug in the tester to verify voltage and correct wiring. Can be used with a 50-30 adapter to test a 30 amp outlet also. Good site, thanks for sharing

There is really no way to protect yourself from a nut like that.You never really know who your neighbor is or what he is up to.
