RE: Furnace usage

I have found that simply turning on the gas stove top does pretty good for heating the camper up. There are those who frown on using the stove top to warm up the camper, arguing the fumes and monoxide potential. To us the issue is not what you stated, but the immense amount of moisture created by burning LP. Been there. Not worth the heat, even over a very short period. YRMV.

RE: Cable Tv in Rv Parks

If you have good internet you can stream too, for a lot less than a Dish subscription. You could even go to something like Vue or Sling if you want a closer to cable experience versus Netflix, Hulu, etc. The problem with this scenario is that all of this streaming draws down bandwidth from everyone else..particularly those who don't stream. Many RV parks which provide WiFi find their bandwidth stressed to the max and beyond. Understandably, they aren't willing to invest big (yes big) bucks in new infrastructure, and where will it end? If you must have all of that stuff, take responsibility for it and provide your own. We use DISH with portability. Nothing is perfect, but we have been satisfied with them.

RE: Parking the 5er

our best bet is for me to survey the site and for DW to just alert me to any impending danger such as too close to a limb. Yep. We've been doing it that way almost from the beginning 16 years ago. No need for her to give directions nor for me to try to follow them. It's rare that I don't nail it 1st try.

RE: Creamy Parmesan Garlic Mushroom Chicken

Yah, chicken is a tough one to determine when done.. The best way is to get an instant read digital meat thermometer. They're inexpensive and accurate. I avoid the whole problem with chicken breasts by not eating them! For some inexplicable reason my wife prefers white meat, which I find relatively bland and more temperamental to cook than the succulent, juicy dark meat that is exclusive to my chicken consumption. No accounting for taste. :)

RE: Full Time Address - AZ

We've used my wife's sisters address as our legal residence for years. Once a month or so, we get in touch, tell her what to discard (most of it), and she then forwards the remainder via priority mail to wherever we happen to be. Has worked just fine and postage aside the 'service' is FREE!

RE: Hot Shower

Another option.......learn to conserve RV water usage. Ya think? Bravo!

RE: RV propane tank replacement

As others have said: Wire brush it off, paint it if you must, and worry about other things! (or not) I highly recommend the NOT part :) The likelihood that you will experience a rupture is incalculably slim.

RE: Tomato Juice

Thanks for all of the replies. I buy it the way I buy it because I'm thrifty (cheap), one of the reasons we have been on the road for 16 years. One of 4 degrees I hold is a BS in biochemistry and I still don't understand why, with pasteurization and the added salt, it goes south so quickly at optimal temperatures. And no, I will never get used to fizzy TJ. Someone tried to introduce me to TJ infused beer back in my youth. YUCK!!

Tomato Juice

We enjoy TJ both stand alone and in the occasional bloody mary. We buy it in the large can and then decant it into a plastic container which is then stored in the fridge. Our RV fridge is measured at 35 to 37 degrees consistently. The problem? We can barely get to 7 days before it shows signs of fermentation. Carbonation and a sour taste. This next to a 1/2 gallon of milk still fresh after 2 weeks! Any thoughts?

RE: Propane or Electric water heater

If you are paying for both propane and electric, propane is frequently less expensive. The following is very handy for comparing your situations: http://www.propane101.com/propanevselectricity.htm

RE: Please Slow Down in Campgrounds this Fall

We just finished a 400 mile trip (200 each way) and found the same mentality that pervades CG's. Speed limits and other rules are merely suggestions that don't need to interfere with their entitlement. You will never convince those folks to behave any differently in, or out of a CG.

RE: Was retirement for you a good or not so good choice?

Oh, moderator!

RE: Was retirement for you a good or not so good choice?

When I was 15 years old (really) I set a goal for myself to retire by the time I was 50. I did it a year early at 49. 16 years later I've never been happier. My wife agrees.

RE: Best places to look for rv financing?

This is going to be an unpopular post. This is from someone who has not owned a single debt for over 50 years, and yes, that includes CC's, etc. My first and last mortgage was for 18 months on my first property purchase. I quickly understood that someone else was spending my money. I did not care for that concept. I still don't. If there is any way that you can avoid paying "interest", try to work it out. You will be glad down the road.

RE: Full Time RV in North Carolina Issues

I read the word "new" fifth wheel. Don't, don't buy new. Find a good clean unit around three years old. Anything is better than the depreciation on a new unit the first three years. Amen!

RE: Towing 33', 7500 GVWR trailer with 1/2 ton truck.

I'll make my usual response. Of course you can tow it. On level ground I could tow it with a golf cart. The serious question is whether you can stop it whenever needed. THAT is the issue.

RE: BBQ Lighters

Having looked as exhaustively as I wish to without success, I bought a box of kitchen matches today. Oh bliss! My wife and I both even enjoy the aroma. Thanks to all who responded.
