RE: Awning use @ beach???

I tie mine down, I have corkscrew anchors. The bad thing about this set up is that the wind can stretch the awning. X2 except I use 4 screw anchors (2 per corner) and I always use 4 wind de-flappers If the wind gets too bad, I close the awning no use taking a chance.

RE: Portable Ice Maker

We got the large one at Wally World and love it, sure beats running to the store for ice, ours makes a load of ice about every 15-20 minutes, they are ice makers, not ice keepers such as one in the freezer at home, I just dump the cube into a small cooler and enjoy the ice in our tea or sodas. Well worth the price as ice here is about $2.50 bag.

RE: Reserve America policies

I personally like Reserve America, I do not think their cancellation price is that bad and i have had to use it twice. as far s the park service people being lazy, what I have seen is understaffed people doing the best they can, and the volunteers are really an asset, just looking at the trashy condition of some of the sites I have seen and the mess people leave the sites in in takes up a lot of time just cleaning up. There are other campgrounds to stay at..

RE: Why I carry a boat-load of lumber

somebody has way to much time on your hands. lol X 2 I agree, My TT is small I use a BAL leveler, and carry 1 box of lynx levelers which I have never used, I carry my own table which fits under the awning and I too have never went to the trouble to level a picnic table s I can usually find a level spot (or almost level anyway) to cook or BBQ from.

RE: fire ban

Try this, I found it on the Inet You need to know how to make an artificial campfire for a campfire circle in the rain, or where real fire is too dangerous. You can make a fine looking artificial campfire from simple and inexpensive materials. Campfire sound effects help complete the illusion of a real fire. To make an artificial campfire, you will need: • 2’ x 2’ plywood base • Battery operated push light • Pile of approximately 2” diameter firewood • Hot glue gun and hot glue sticks • Red, orange, yellow, and blue cellophane sheets • Sound effects recording of a crackling fire 1. Place the battery operated push light in the center of the plywood base. Trace around it with a pencil. Remove the light. Draw a second shape that is about an inch bigger than the push light tracing. 2. Arrange the firewood into a pile, as though it is a real fire. Keep an opening at the center of the wood that is the size of the larger shape drawn on the wood. 3. Use the glue gun to attach the wood to the base and the pieces of wood to each other. Be careful that your center opening remains open. 4. Cut the sheets of cellophane into large triangular pieces. Crumple some of the pieces. Glue some red and orange cellophane triangles to the sides of the opening in the middle of the wood. Have them stick up above the wood as flames. 5. Place the push light down inside the center opening. Glue orange and yellow triangular pieces of cellophane to the top of the light. Have them stick up above the wood as flames. Put just a few pieces of blue cellophane at the center of the artificial campfire. 6. Push the light to turn it on. The cellophane flames now carry the light and look like a real campfire. 7. Play a sound effects recording of a crackling campfire to add realism to your artificial campfire. After you make an artificial campfire, use it for sing-alongs, storytelling, and other events. Turn out the lights for the best effect.

RE: Does running out of fresh water damage the pump?

Not a good idea to run any pump dry,

RE: Bridge Heights

Traffic signals must be 17-19 Feet high in Fl. I would assume most overpasses are about the same, however most overpasses are marked with the height by a posted sign.

RE: State Park destruction in Michigan's UP

It is not a pretty site and luckily no one was hurt, or worse. I had something happen similar in the Fl panhandle years ago, except it dropped the tree on the RV next to me and ruined the roof of a 1 day old RV. I intended to get that site when we arrived but was informed that the site was saved, luck was with us in our pop up. When the weather gets bad we go into something solid, even the bath house if that is all, but we do not stay in the RV

RE: Air Conditioner Test

one thing to consider, an AC also removes moisture and this give a lower temp. as the air & everything else in the TV is dehumidified. Also the given is not exactly what I think people men "it is considered air conditioning when the air is 20 deg cooler than the outside temp", it may drop further

RE: A Camping Tradition That Costs $0

Neat idea, however would not work for me as I do not have a campfire every time we camp.
nineoaks2004 07/21/16 02:13pm Travel Trailers

I need to contact you about a problem, but I don't think it needs to be treated as dirty laundry and aired in public as CW gets slammed enough.. Thanks Roy Fralick
nineoaks2004 07/21/16 02:12pm Good Sam Club

I take it you are moving or have moved to Fl. If you have a tag from a previous registration you can change it over in Fl. If you are registering a vehicle in any state and want to buy a tag, it should be normal to have to register it in that state, This tax is not nearly as bad as some states which tax you every year on your personal property.

RE: Repair or replace?

I would probably be just as cheap to replace the unit, by the time you remove the unit from the roof, buy a new compressor uninstall the old one and install the new one, pump the unit down a couple of times, buy new oil and refrigerant (which is not cheap) you could remove the old one and set it aside for spare parts, install the new one and be on your way. (my opinion)

RE: What do you leave in RV

I keep clothes (summer )or (winter) depends on the weather, linens, pots and pans, cleaning supplies, etc. stable groceries and spices as per list. When we get home from a trip we wash the dirty items and re pack in the TT this way we are ready to go whenever we decide to take a trip.
