RE: Electric or Propane When Paying for Electric?

This is a no-brainer with ALL cost factors computed. Look it up. Determine what you are paying per KWH for electric (factoring in any "surcharges") Multiply that by 27. Whichever figure is lower is the energy source you should use. Given today's prices in most areas, propane will win, hands down.

How Many Forum Posters To Change A Light Bulb?

155 One to change the light bulb and post to the forum that it has been changed. 11 to share similar experiences changing light bulbs. 50 to comment that this post is not about light bulbs. 27 to post URL's where one can see examples of different light bulbs and techniques for changing them. 3 to post about links they found from the above URL's. 30 who repeat things from the other posts because they haven't bother to read them. 19 to post X2, ditto or similar indicating that they don't have anything new to contribute. 4 to suggest that posters read the light bulb FAQ's.

RE: smartphone sizes today compared to four years ago !

Sometimes I wish I just stayed with the old very small flip phone, but of course, had to have a "smart phone". Uh, why was that? Sometimes I wish that the cell phone had never been invented. No, what you really wish is that you had never bought into all the hype And BTW, we still own an old flip phone which in a good month we might use twice. $5/month and that includes 20 minutes.

Sunchaser (Dometic) Awning Parts

Anyone know if the retaining pin (the one that pops into a hole in the awning arm) can be replaced without replacing the entire lift handle? Thanks in advance.

RE: A response to reduce unsolicited live sales calls.

"When the Still Sea conspires in armor, And her sullen & aborted currents breed slimy monsters, TRUE SAILING IS DEAD." FYI: Horse Latitudes - The Doors And BTW, it's "an armor" instead of "in armor", and "tiny" not "slimy" . Just sayin' :C

RE: Self defense while traveling

Yet another gun thread that's allowed to continue. How sad and selective.

RE: Amazon Prime $67 today only 09/25/15

I have over $150 sitting in an Amazon account. We keep bypassing it because much better pricing is available via eBay. Amazon used to be our "go to". If you look back over 3 years, they have been doing the same thing that Walmart is doing: raising prices by pennies a month, hoping you won't notice.

RE: Anyone here prepaid for a funeral?

We've approached the issue a bit differently. Have contracts with medical schools to donate our bodies. They'll pay to pick us up wherever we drop. After they are done with the remains, they will even return cremains if desired. Our demises will not cost one single penny in after death costs.

RE: That old song?

I believe that is, "And The Band Played On".

RE: Outside TV Mount

http://i263.photobucket.com/albums/ii142/dutchmensport/Camping%20Tips/20150815_210033-1_zpsfxcfv1yd.jpg How very sad. A roaring campfire mitigated by a TV. I would hope that this is a joke, I know that it isn't. No responses required. Don't even bother.

RE: A response to reduce unsolicited live sales calls.

We solve the problem entirely. We NEVER answer a phone. If it's important, that's what voicemail is for.

RE: Can we all agree?

There are (too many) participants here who would argue the concept that the color "flat black" isn't really, just for the sake of argument and to rack up another post. There will be those who will now do so about my above comment. Sit quietly, read and learn to discern the wheat from the chaff, grasshoppa! Trust me when I tell you that if you are a discerning individual, your chaff pile will grow mountainous in short order.

RE: Reading Books

It's a great thing that we are all different. I will never in my lifetime understand people who don't read. Increased reading has been one of the pure joys of retirement. My wife and I own 3 e-readers, one tablet, a chromebook and have 13 library cards still valid across the country. Together, we average 4 e-books and 2 paper ones a week. What do y'all do with your time? Oh yeah, judging from what we see, a lot of it seems to be spent eating! Someone suggested reading "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" by Hunter S Thompson. I enjoyed it, but suggesting that as a read to get into reading is just plain wrong! It might scare off many new readers!

RE: I'm better because...

I am certainly no "better" than anyone else here. "Different"? Yes indeed. 588 posts in 9 years. It's actually 704 in 15 years, but that's another story. If "better" means racking up thousands of posts for no particular reason(s), I must be a loser, or whatever the apposition is to "better".

RE: full-timing and credit rating

There is a prevalent myth that one must incur debt to "improve" ones' "score". BALDERDASH! The last time I owed anyone anything was 20 years ago on a house payment which actually accrued me interest, but that's a different story. We currently hold 9 credit cards, all of which pay US for using them. I have held a multitude of cards for 43 years and have never paid a single penny for the privilege. Do the CC companies hate people like me? Probably. But that doesn't stop them from extending even more "credit". Across those 9 cards we have in excess of a half million in "available" funds. Having exhaustively typed all of that I will note that in our 15th year of ROVING fulltiming I am at 841 and she is at 839. It cannot be emphasized enough: DEBT FREE

Our RV is our fulltime roving home, now in our 15th year.

RE: Why so many rude and irrelevant comments

several times when I have posted a topic or question, I get all these unrelated and often insulting comments. In four pages of responses I found just a handful that where relevant to the question being asked. The vast majority were off the subject and some of them rather insulting. Welcome to life in these parts. For the record, I could not agree with you more. There are a number of repeaters (and repeaters and repeaters) here who simply seem to have nothing else to do but comment upon everything that comes down the pike, even if their comments have literally no relevance to the topic at hand, and even if they don't have ANYTHING to add. Many of them don't read the entirety of the post, they just spout. They love to see themselves type. For example: Q: Can anyone help me with XX? A: Never had one of those. But by g.. they got another post! It almost seems a contest to see how many posts one can have, regardless any meaningful content. There are folks here who post: "X2/3/4", ad infinitum. Is that in any way helpful? Bottom line is that this is a free internet forum to which you come voluntarily and can easily stop participating in at any moment (as I am about to do and come back in 6 months to see if anything has changed *it won't have*) Been here for years, off and on, mostly off, excepting the tech forums. On a positive note there ARE sub forums here that can be useful. If you have pertinent concerns, try the tech issues forum. Lots of info without attendant BS. Now, you watch. There will be many people who have not bothered to read the thread through, yet they will pontificate. Take care

RE: Question on sewer at full hook-up site

When required, you need only keep the hose from contacting the ground. We've been using sloped sections of 2X6's for the last 14 years FT without a problem.
