RE: Do you Adjust your WDH When You Drive With a Full Water Tank

No, but my FW tank is between the axles.

RE: Dipping our toes into snow bird with TT

Rather than "dipping your toes in" sounds like you are jumping in with both feet. Suggest renting first and traveling around a general area. We tried the snowbird thing last winter (have owned RVs for 40 years) and said never again. JMHOCould you explain why? Was it the weather, the people, the being away from home? And where was it you did your snowbirding?

RE: Shower hygiene

Flip flops in the shower then stand on this in the dressing area - flip flops off. Dry off, get dressed, put socks and shoes on. http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/content/Item/51/10/07/i511007sq01.jpg width=600 Mine is cedar - I don't know what the one at Camping World is made of... Here's a link and it's on sale right now. Haven't used mine in years and I don't even know where it is... I'm really good at navy showers - and if we had no water I would rather wipe myself down with baby wipes. I've been in lots of CG showers and I just don't like 'em.

RE: Felt so bad for older couple traveling today

.... It had to be the owner. Always blame the victim even when you have no evidence of operator error.Where's your evidence?It's much more likely for a trailer to be in tip top condition when it leaves the factory with new tires, bearings, and brakes than after years of service.It's called sarcasm.So, you caught that, huh? ;) You were the very first responder within 4 minutes of the original post. The first one to blame the older couple for having old and worn out gear and not having a clue about doing their maintenance. Maybe that was just a game to see how many people would jump on the bandwagon. :R

RE: Felt so bad for older couple traveling today

I agree with others on the first page. NOTHING will survive without maintenance. We have a 1984 Alpenlite 5th wheel..... First thing hubby did when we bought it 2-3 yrs ago was to go over all maintenance "things"....bearings, brakes, etc. We've never had a problem on the road...Uh oh...

RE: Parkways?

All I know is in the state of NY they don't want RVs on parkways... Now, the parkway that I'm used to is the Baltimore Washington Parkway and we are allowed on that. So you can't assume that all parkways are verboten.

RE: Highway 50

I've driven 50 from Annapolis, Md to Pueblo, Co. It was great fun. Nowhere near either Richmond, VA or Anywhere, MI though.

RE: if trailer tires only good to 65mph, why not switch?

The tires on our trailer are rated to 99 mph. With limited vacation time we like to get there fast so we can take it slow... Even if we're not going to Kokomo. :p

RE: What is the oldest thing you take with you camping or rving?

45 rpm records from the 50s.That's cool - in that vein we have old radio programs from the 40s. They are stored on a USB stick which we plug into our stereo for entertainment when we're without shore power. Not sure this counts though... :h

RE: What is the oldest thing you take with you camping or rving?

What is the oldest thing you take with you camping or rving? Had to think about it a bit - I was pretty sure it's our TV, but then I thought our 1970s Duncan Hines cookware is probably it. No! It is our card game of Mille Bornes. My mom got it in the 50s, gave it to me and we've always had it with us and played it with the kids when we camped. (Those were the days before electronic devices.) We still get it out and play every once in a while - it's a perfect game to play while traveling. :)

RE: Check engine light 4 days away from vacation

^ Or leave it on long enough and the bulb will burn eventually burn out. ;)

RE: Accurate Tire Guage

I have a digital gauge made by Accutire and it's the only one I use so I always know what the tire pressure is. If you have more than one gauge you NEVER know what is correct!This is true - which is why it's imprtant to have one that matches your TPMS! We have 2 different gauges that say different things. The fancy fluid filled Powertank reads 4 pounds different than the TPMS, while the regular analog Victor one reads the same. The fluid filled one is the one on the air hose however. :R Luckily we very rarely have to add air, so it's just plug in the TPMS, check that everything is good, and roll.

RE: Learn best from your mistakes

We use our oven on every trip. We turn on the exhaust fan over the stove/oven and it sucks the heat venting out of the back stove. Fiver does not heat up and once oven has cooled down turn the fan off.Same here! But then, I did replace my fan with a nice quiet one so we don't mind it being on.

RE: Trip report: Dolomite Mountains (and 5 other countries)

Steve - what a wonderful trip - and - trip report! I always look forward to and enjoy your TRs. I had Google maps open and would switch back and forth between your report and the map. Very exciting - and I agree that Sally is a lion - you guys are so cool!

RE: Possible Campground Closing

We stayed there a couple of years ago while visiting Newport. It is very nicely located and we enjoyed our week stay. Would definitely go back again - hope they stay open!

RE: Microsoft Streets and Trips coming to end of life

What so many here seem to miss is that internet based mapping is useless if there is no phone service. There are loads of places where there is no cell service making stand alone mapping like S&Ts the only way for flexible on the go mapping.Exactly. It has been our go to program whenever we need a map when we're out.

RE: Ridiculously simple mods -- let's see 'em!

Our cats needed a place for their litter box so I took off a door to the storage area under the bed and made a curtain. The curtain is just overlapping pieces of cloth sewed together at the top and tucked under the mattress: https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-YawfZnqGkGY/Td49X32zTUI/AAAAAAAABUA/2TJLA1gCpH0/s640/CatBox1.JPG width=620 Oh - and I did use duct tape for one of my mods... Had a big problem with stink bugs coming in the range vent one year (falling right into the frying pan :E) - so I took off the vent cover and used duct tape to attach screening. https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-aMsdeTraN9w/Td4-UOcnb8I/AAAAAAAABWY/Hsozy_HSxzs/s640/PB060008.JPG width=620

RE: Finally Happened . . .

We knew we had to change the tires the end of this year because according to the DOT code on the tires, they were good till 2015.What's this mean? Is there a secret code other than than build date? Is there now a fail date? :h

RE: Cheeseburger in fridge that is turned off.

Ok, the update, we got back from the camper today. We got to the camper Friday night, so it's been in there for almost 2 weeks with no refrigeration. I'm sure the residual cooling went on for a few days, but it was rather hot and humid in the camper. I opened the door, no evidence of an odor, not even my fiancee, with her sensitive nose, could smell anything. We still had one more door to open, we both ran in the camper and opened it, no smell at all. The hamburger was moldy and fuzzy, but only in a couple spots. No smell at all. We drove down the road to get supplies that night and I threw it out into the woods down the road, to not lure any bears to our site. I didn't smell the tupperware, but I did gag a little from the thought of smelling it and seeing it. TL;DR: burger didn't smell up camper.Thanks very much for your update - it was an interesting situation.

RE: Type of Camper Poll

Friendly but prefer our privacy, State Parks, either W&E or Dry.Same here except for the dry... Problem with dry spots is other people's generators (which would make us antisocial), so we prefer electric at least and then we can stay friendly. This is what we prefer: https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-0qx2U9xuZsk/UXlrVBjes4I/AAAAAAAAG_w/wt4DBMJ8PIA/s640/Adirondacks-065.jpg width=640 Of course there's always the anomaly, like our latest trip to Philly we stayed at a FHU RV Park - can you find our camper in the pic: https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-3KF_vUIu4-M/U5J6xDujS1I/AAAAAAAAKNQ/FIj8NLFVjwI/s640/Philly-008.jpg width=640 This was actually the quietest park we ever stayed in - everybody stayed inside their RV unless they were taking the dog for a quiet walk.
