RE: Finding propane prices on line.

If you have a Tractor Supply in the area, they are generally the least expensive.

RE: ATVs or ORVs in Campgrounds?

Yes have seen ATV ban in private & public CGs Now if they would do the same for them dang golf carts. Never would I have thought that I'd agree with you, but I'm in your camp on this issue. If'n you wish to endlessly run your motorized (take your pick) stuff, that's fine. There are many venues where you can park with like minded folks who don't care about the noise levels and somehow believe that operating a golf cart while "camping" makes sense. (Please seek one out).

RE: Would this bother you?

Ya know, yeah, it might miff me a bit, but inconsiderate people rule the day if you let them. As long as they aren't causing me damage, why bother? At the youthful :) age of 63 and after 14 years fulltiming, I came to the conclusion long ago that most of what bothers many people just doesn't matter to me. Life is way too short. I'm a happy camper and am determined to stay that way! I think it's key that the OP said he can't open his door the whole way. What happens when he scratches his door or the slide and now the other guy is mad - and unpredictable. Sad that one has to worry about he would do instead of a calm request but it's become the world we live in. Glad OP talked to manager and hope it works out. I hear you, it just doesn't matter to me. I have insurance for the potential. No worries, mon.

RE: Has anyone had a run in with any WILD animals?

Not 30 minutes ago I was basking in the sun with a great cup of coffee, when a 7" blue skink had the audacity to crawl atop my bare foot and stay there staring up at me for several minutes. Only when I wiggled a toe did he/she move on. Does this constitute an encounter with a wild animal? What do I win? Means you have a blue thumb or toe. Can attract blue birds and skinks. Can you raise tomatoes? :) From the dead! :)

RE: Former or Inactive members

SPOILER ALERT Unpopular response coming on: Despite my profile, I have been here since '02 (Another story) In those 13 years I have had many lengthy absences, one as long as 9 months. Fact is, it takes just a few posts to catch up on anything "new" and then it's on to the same people spouting the same things over and over and over. Frankly, it gets completely boring and I have better things to do. Perhaps some of those other "missing" feel the same way and absent themselves for the same reasons.

RE: Downsizing

We will begin our 15th year fulltime traveling in May. Had a gas MH before we got on the road permanently and have had 2 5'ers since, towed by diesel trucks. Contrasted, we have downsized with every new rig, all the better to utilize what, to us, are smaller, quieter and more secluded places largely inaccessible to the big 'ol honkin' DP's Just a matter of where you want to go and what you want to do when you get there. We have no interest in bingo or any other sort of "social" activity. We are grateful that there are places for those folks to go.

With few exceptions, we can "afford" whatever we wish. We wish for, and enjoy less.

RE: What do you do with your time while full-timing

If'n you have to ask, perhaps this lifestyle isn't for you :)

RE: Do I need to get my transmission fluid changed or not?

You need to post what vehicle it is. Trans fluid is pink not clear. In Fords a slight burnt smell is normal. As stated DO NOT do the power flush. To do a proper trans fluid change could take as much as 22 quarts of fluid when you drain the trans...torque converter...cooler....lines and do the proper flush and refill. A proper flush should be in the 250.00 range since the fluid is almost 150 bucks I was a mechanic for years and have friends still in the business and they don't do it. Listen to what this person types!

RE: Do I need to get my transmission fluid changed or not?

Let's look at the possibilities, 1) You go to a reputable (!) store and ask their opinion 2) In the VERY unlikely event that you have anything wrong with your transmission fluid and they suggest that you submit to further "testing "You might want to back away. TX fluid testing is bogus in 98% of cases

RE: Travel Check List

We used to have a list; probably still do somewhere, but after so many years of RVing we don't refer to it anymore. In May, we will have been doing this FT thing starting our 15th year. We are FT'ers moving many times/year. We have a laminated and thoroughly worn checklist which we still update every few years. We use it every time we arrive and depart. To this day, we occasionally miss something that w/o the checklist we would have missed. Earth-shattering problems? Unlikely. But I'd still like to have $10 for every antenna we've seen sheared off other's rigs. Another one bit the dust 3 days ago.

RE: Screened Canopy in Wind

Just an aside: We will soon begin our 15th year fulltiming. Along the way, we used to workamp managing FS campgrounds. Over a number of years we made a nice piece of change reselling new or nearly new EZ-UP and similar canopies abandoned in dumpsters by thoroughly frustrated campers.

RE: clean top of slide

1) Ascend attached ladder with broom, it either being tossed or carried 2) Sweep said slide top 3) Toss broom to ground and descend ladder with the knowledge that the job has been done without annoying neighbors with the likes of a blower 4) In the unlikely event that I fall off the roof, I'll still make less noise than that nasty blower! ):

RE: Tailgaters

I will give you a brake check if you tailgate me. Now THERE'S a wonderful idea! And should they or their brakes fail?

RE: F250 w/ 12.5k FW

The bottom, bottom line here is that people will tow whatever they want with whatever they want, and no one or nuthin' ain't ever gonna' change their minds cuz' they've justified it. Can I tow a 13K vehicle with a 3/4 ton wahtchamacallit? Absolutely! On level ground I can TOW it with a golf cart. What seems to get lost in all of these threads/mindsets is whether, in extremis, I can STOP it!

RE: Where to leave trailer for a day while traveling

My point, you took all the time and effort to get there. Take the time to experience it. Bravo! Listen to this person. Sense is being made here!

RE: Tailgaters

We have a bumper sticker on both the 5'er and the truck: 55 SAVES FUEL And BTW, it does and we do. Measured several times. 13 mpg towing at 55 (diesel truck). Nearly 20% less at 65. Tailgate all you want. Won't effect anything but YOUR blood pressure.

RE: If I won the mega-millions lottery I would...

We have been fulltiming for nearly 14 years now. Have had 3 rigs and have downsized every time so as to better fit in the out-of-the way places we cherish. We sit atop what some might consider a pile of money, all there because I systematically tucked it away many years ago. No one ever gave me a dime. We live the way we wish and want for nothing. I have been talking with my wife while I'm typing this and honestly, we agree that we wouldn't change anything should a windfall happen. Not likely since we've never 'invested' in lottery tickets. :)
