RE: Satellite TV

I failed to mention earlier that, if TV were to go away completely, we wouldn't miss it. Different strokes.

RE: Satellite TV

We've been fulltime travelers now in our 14th year. We've had satellite TV 3 times and have every time found it wanting. Our last excursion was with an automatic Tailgater from DISH. Loved the no-brainer setup, hated the reception. If, when one is in the sort of places we prefer (heavily wooded), fugedaboutit. Still have the dish and receiver. Anyone want to buy them seriously cheap? :)

RE: Park Models RV or Not?

A lot of people live in there RV full time should that make them conform to mobile home standards? If they have it permanently located and it does not move during a year, then the answer is certainly "yes".

OK, I'm a dunce. I'll ask it one last time. What does this stuff accomplish? Anyone?

RE: Cost of staying connected.......

Since I see you are here you must be staring at a screen too!! Remember that before you yell at me THINK..... Just Saying. My apologies. Sometimes when I want to add emphasis to a word, I forget that caps to some people means yelling. Is/was not my intent. I think we are pretty much on the same page in terms of connectivity, but all realms together, I spend less than an hour/day staring at any screen. And trust me when I tell you that I have never been bored enough to pick up a phone.

RE: DEF addative

OK, someone please enlighten me. I have an older 7.3L TD and haven't a clue as to what this stuff is. I only know that I don't need it. But seriously, what does it do?

RE: Park Models RV or Not?

RV= Recreational Vehicle. For all practical purposes, park models don't move, therefor aren't vehicles. What's not to understand?

RE: Bugs

Wet dryer sheets are only slightly short of magic. You will be amazed. When I 1st heard of this many years ago I thought, "Uh huh, yeah right." One try made me a complete believer. Rinse thoroughly.

RE: Cost of staying connected.......

=CavemanCharlie I hear you. There are so many options these days it can drive a person batty. Or, you can go outside, sit in a chair or take a walk, read a book (remember those?) and forget about battiness. How many years do you figure you have left and how many of them do you want to spend staring at one screen or another? Just sayin'. THINK

RE: Cost of staying connected.......

I am no nearer to stretching my connectivity dollar than I was when I posted this question... One of the problems Bob, is that you never specified what YOU need on a day to day, month by month basis. And yes, I just reread the thread. If you get down to what you require in a month in terms of specific needs via all entities, answers might be more relevant. I am guilty of meandering off path here. As I mentioned before, we no longer want any of this c*** but we've had it all. Be specific and I can tell you our experiences with virtually anything you can name in this realm. Would be glad to help, but understand that anything coming from me is from a biased, been there, done that, technoNOT.

RE: Cost of staying connected.......

Today we have a cell phone that we rarely carry with us, 5gb internet and never watch TV. We do outside activities or read. Pretty boring, huh? We feel yer pain..err..gain. Walk roughly 20 miles/week and between us read 5+ books/week. Again, costs $0 to stay connected and in shape both mentally and physically.

RE: Cost of staying connected.......

Save money. Pay phones and snail mail Pay Phone? The only pay phone I have seen recently was on display in a museum. :) Travelon Matter of fact, the park we are in here in W NC has a working! pay phone. Tested and used!

RE: Cost of staying connected.......

I think you are missing 2oldmans point which was he like me doesn't have to "CHOOSE" between options for spending ... we can "CHOOSE" them all without regards to cost or having to set spending priorities. Larry And you sir, miss my point. Short of a private 747, I can buy literally anything (I'd have to finance the aircraft for a few months). I've had ALL of the aforementioned "connectivity" toys and have found them all wanting. MY point is that I don't WANT any of it. WAY happy to be "disconnected".

RE: Rock Auto Discount Code

So, if what the poster described isn't for you, why bother commenting?

RE: Cost of staying connected.......

Are you folks insane? $200-300-400 a month? .No,it's called being able to afford the comforts of life. LOL I'll stick with our $1 or less/month to be "connected". We very likely can afford as much, if not more, than can you. We simply choose to spend it differently. Today our "comfort" was a 5 mile hike midst some glorious scenery. Cost?: $0. No harm, no foul. Your priorities are simply way different than ours.

RE: Gaudy colored and striped RV's

I'd be most pleased to see some real imagination put into the "color palette" of the RV industry. And the net result to you as a human being, given your extremely limited time left on the planet would be what? To remain on topic I'll answer it again. Whatever you choose to paint your exterior with, what really matters is what's inside, and that's all about you. If you consider the "color pallet (sic)" a part of the RV industry, I cannot even comment.

RE: Gaudy colored and striped RV's

Interesting thread. Even though we're fulltimers, I/we've washed our 2 rigs at least 30 times and de-oxidant waxed them 14 times in 14 years. And yes, both of them have had those plain ubiquitous graphics in one form or the other. You'd think that all of that intimate contact would have made an indelible impression. When I read this, I realized that if someone offered me 100K to draw, in color, the graphics on it, I couldn't do it. She couldn't do it either. We take care of the outside prudently, but it's who we are inside that counts.

RE: How you heatin?

It pays to do the math. We are now in a park where the electric rate is .17/KWH. If one does a conversion based on BTU's in each source, propane would have to be $4.59/gal to be more expensive than electric. We can buy it locally for $2.49/gal. Even factoring in the loss of efficiency using the furnace, propane is still a no-brainer in this location.
