RE: Internet use

Please keep in mind: There is NO OTA (over the air) connect that is truly secure. Though it's unlikely, a 5th grader with a bit of tech savvy can hack you.

RE: Returning Phone Messages

I see it differently. If you're running a business that is open from 9-5, answer the phone. I could not agree with you more! If, during posted operating hours, I get a recording, I will be doing business with someone who will answer the phone.

RE: Help me tow a stacker with an Avalanche

I'm with SoundGuy. What the heck is a stacker?

RE: Fuel

I know that it doesn't really speak to you folks with those big ol' DP tanks, but the same theory applies. Same as with our 2 propane tanks, we have twin diesel tanks with a crossover. Our propane, we let one run out before the next trip to the store, but with our truck, if one gets down to 25%, it gets filled next available opportunity. As other have said, if you approach 45% gone in a single tank, get ye to a petrol place. You'll never sing the boo-hoo-hoo's.

Eating Out

Wondering how often you visit a full service restaurant. It would be interesting to know what sort of RV'er you are: weekend warrior, frequent short-tripper, snowbird, fulltimer, etc. I'll go first. We are long term traveling fullimers. We eat out once a month or less. Even then we go to out of the way local recommendations. My illustrious career has included the ownership of 2 restaurants and the management of another. What I produce out of my kitchen on a daily basis is significantly better than what we can get out. If that sounds braggadocios, it was intended to be. :) I love cooking, but once in a rare while I like a short break. My wife and I are almost always disappointed.

RE: Charge Batteries by Idling Tow Vehicle?

Everyone is missing at least one point. You run a truck/generator where we can hear it after suitable quiet time, 11PM works for us, even in a remote boondocking situation, you WILL be shut down....really. Been there, done that.

RE: Running 2 a/c's

Unpopular comment coming: Presumably you're boondocking and want to run 2 AC's? Perhaps you need to seek an alternate hobby/lifestyle.

RE: It's amazing how much water we use

When we boondock we are able get by quite nicely on 40 gal/week, and that includes navy showers. We don't use a whole lot more day to day as FT'ers. People in the US have been conditioned to waste - everything. We choose not to do our share.

RE: RV Security system ?

I can only echo the sentiments expressed above. We've been doing this FT thing for many years. Do your homework and go to parks with clean records. They're out there, usually well off the beaten path and largely inhabited by seasonals. Case in point, we are currently in a small(50 site)park in North Central FL. All the amenities that we require (great WiFi being the priority). Their (verified) record is not a single reported theft in 21 years). Again, do your homework. After that, if you choose that venue and when you have been there a few days you don't feel comfortable, your rig has wheels. Use them. If you feel the need for a security system, you are in the wrong place. Happy Travels

RE: A cell phone request

What is even more funny is that there is a new phobia associated called Nomophobia - the fear of being out of mobile phone contact. Shouldn't that be nomophonia? :)

RE: Beer!

For all of you who replied, thanks very much. 6 months later in my quest, I've finally found what I was looking for in an unlikely venue and at a moderate price. The winner is: Michelob Amber Bock I was surprised as well. All the malt I was seeking in a very hearty brew. Cheers!

RE: Sudden hearing loss...

I lost complete hearing in my left ear very suddenly and unexpectedly a little over 2 weeks ago and it is accompanied by horrendous ringing (tinnitus.) The ENT specialist diagnosed it as a mini-stroke (an extended transient ischemic attack) that occurred in the blood supply to my ear parts. Yes, it is a stroke, but not the kind that results in loss of arms or legs or facial droop normally associated with a stroke; it did affect one side in my ear. We are trying meds and in another 2 weeks I will go for another hearing test. As of now, I cannot hear out of my left ear. I am trying to adapt to this new situation. Anyone experience this specific situation (1 ear only and sudden) and how are you coping? Thanks. This will probably be deleted, but, for the life of me I don't understand why someone who has been diagnosed and is under medical care would come to an RV forum for advice. Seriously, you think that people here can come up with better? Advice? Wait until the people you are paying to advise you.

RE: to much info

Fulltiming for many years. Gave up "opinion" sites nearly as long ago. Your opinion and ours is quite likely to not even be close to matching what is important to us. We research an area that we are interested in visiting. We make a list of facilities that suit us and then we call them and ask them pertinent questions. (We have a list) There is nothing like talking with the people who work the place. Information, friendliness, tone of voice etc. Out of our 15+years FT, we have only made one mistake in the past 6 years. Do your homework, talk to the people involved and never rely on someone else' opinion. Works for us.

RE: Open question to everyone...

THIS is why I still come back occasionally to read. Y'all are seriously funny!

RE: Traveling with the furnace running

Except, for this one, I rarely post here any longer. I come in to read occasionally. This thread is particularly poignant. The silly folly of my fellow mankind is endlessly amusing. Running a furnace going down the road? Seriously? "Because I can" is just a mess of an answer.

RE: Are we really "full timing"?

We've been fulltime traveling RV'ers for nearly 15 years. Sitting in one place as you described is not our idea of fulltiming, BUT, what difference does it make what you or anyone else calls it? If it makes you happy and doesn't mess with anyone else, call it laekgpwbv and get on with it. EXACTLY! Wait, wait! Someone who actually reads the entire thread before spouting off? Be still my heart. Kudos. LOL, you're welcome- I think. :) You thunk right!

RE: Dish - 2 tv setup ?

And despite the efforts of an over-zealous moderator, I will continue to insist that going to the source is the FIRST thing one should do. And no, I don't have any affiliation with any satellite provider.

RE: My camper came with tires filled with Nitro air

I'm sorry folks but nitrogen and oxygen react to changes in temperature in EXACTLY the same way. This is taught in every freshman chemistry course as the ideal gas laws. Science?? Facts?? Clearly you have wandered into the wrong place!
