RE: RV Seller Network??

They wanted up front $295 to sell it. When I told the guy to take the $295 out when they sold it he got all upset. BINGO!

RE: FYI... Found a nice 12vdc air compressor at Costco

First the disclaimer. Other than as a customer, I have no affiliation with this company. We are fulltime, movin' around RV'ers for 13 years. A 12V compressor capable of dealing efficiently with 80lb tires, while not essential, has proven useful on many occasions, more specifically the top-offs engendered by changes in altitude and temperature. 9 years ago, we purchased a Master Flow unit that served us well for 3 years until I dropped it off the side of our truck and the intake housing cracked in half. I wrote the company asking about a replacement part. (It would have been a 10 minute switch-out..tops) I explained what had happened and in no way suggested that it was anyone's fault save my own. 4 days later a brand new complete compressor was delivered, no questions asked. We're still using it and kept the old one for parts (which we've never had to use). THAT, folks, is customer service! I offered to pay for the replacement part. Their response was: "If you have the chance, tell others about us". I have had that opportunity and just now did it again.

RE: I built a clear black tank and tested the Sewer Solution

I will NEVER understand the obsession that many people have re: the relative "cleanliness" of their RV sewage systems. Seriously? We have been 24/7, 365 RV'ers for 13 years in 2 different rigs. We have followed the same weekly routine for nearly all of that time. Black tank stays closed for the week. Grey tank(s) closed 2 days before the end of the week. On D day, black tank goes 1st followed by the grey. Entire procedure takes about 5 minutes unless we have to go to a dump station. Never a clog. Never a backup. Never the seemingly dreaded "pyramid o' poop". Never any odors inside the rig. When we disconnect it, does our hose smell like lilacs and roses? No, because it's a freakin' SEWER hose! The stink will make it's way around to where you are. If you don't have a flushing system then leave the fresh water connected to thee plumbing and open the faucets in the kitchen sink and bathroom basin. Let it fill the gray tank and add some lemony fresh gray water stuff from CW. Pull the gray valve again and whalla or something, it will clean out the sewer hose. :) Takes a bit Yes, it takes too much time and WAY too much water. I don't need a CLEAN sewer hose! You don't either! Or perhaps, sadly, you do. :S

RE: Have you gotten a call or text from 202-506-9060???

I'm sorry. What exactly is a "phone"? Only semi-seriously in jest. We have an ancient flip-phone that we keep for emergency use only. Costs us $5/month and that is applicable to the 25 cent/minute rate. Being "connected" means very different things to us. And BTW, being "disconnected" means that one never has to deal with these questioned issues. To each their own. We are happily phone free.

RE: Is it a guy thing ?

And BTW Jack, if you sincerely believe that we males are the "stonger" sex, just hope that N doesn't read this!

RE: Is it a guy thing ?

I, the guy in the family, set up and fill the feeders. As fulltimers for 13 years, this frequently is weekly, sometimes daily. We simply enjoy the birds. Never thought of it as a gender dependent responsibility. And Jack, apparently you're preaching to the "choir".

RE: confusion gas vs diesel prices

$3.10 vs $3.65 is an almost 18% premium on diesel. Both my diesels get at least 30% farther on a gallon than their gas-engined versions (which, in both cases, are neither as quick nor as able to drag heavy things around), so I figure I'm still ahead of the game. BINGO

RE: What is the most often...

If you just don't care how your posts reads, then I don't care to answer. You've just provided your OWN example while attempting to belittle others. It's either "post reads" or "posts read".

RE: Spell Check - a remedy

I spelled werd wrong....no red line...no spel chek That may be because werd is actually a word. A slang term to be sure, but a real word nonetheless. A don't use anything but Firefox and spell check works just fine here.

RE: 6 Cyl Dodge Diesel 30 mpg?

The problem with nearly all of these types of threads is that few consider the ability to STOP the thing. Sure, with an only slightly modified VW bug I could haul a 9K rig atop Pike's Peak. (slowly) Coming down, could I stop it when I absolutely needed to?:S I respectfully disagree. The onus of responsibility is upon the person who mis-matches what they are towing, with what they are towing with. In my less than humble opinion, trailer brakes should be viewed as an accessory, not a fail-safe. In an emergency situation they are virtually useless. I know that my truck can stop both it and the 10K 5'er without use of the trailer brakes. Have been there and done that, not happily but successfully.

RE: Campground Hosting Rules

I'll await a reply from "royl" to whom I addressed the question as to his/her assertion about FULL TIMERS.

RE: Why so many grumpy people here

I think that our verbiage when posting to a forum in print comes across completely different than when we stand eye to eye and communicate. With good reason. Nearly all of the grumps and trolls would NEVER have the guts to say what they type here, in person. Anonymity serves them well.

RE: 6 Cyl Dodge Diesel 30 mpg?

That's absolutely believable, but certainly not towing anything. My 7.3L TD averages 22 hwy alone and 13 towing 10K.
