RE: Workhorse or P-30 Chassis

Workhorse didn't exist in 1996. Tom

RE: Tours in Banff National Park

Thanks for all the information. We are heading to Jasper after spending a week in Banff. Plan on a Ice Field tour and a train ride to mcBride. Take the time to view the movie at the Icefield Centre at the Columbia Icefield. It is the best visitor center short I have ever seen; it is special. In Banff: The Gondola ride to the top of Sulphur Mountain is expensive, but provides spectacular views of Banff and the Bow Valley. You may wish to visit the hot springs; they are the reason Banff became the first national park of Canada. (Intestinally, the first national parks in both the US and Canada, owe their existence to smelly water.) In Lake Louise: Lake Louise, obviously. But don't miss Moraine Lake. Tom

RE: Tours in Banff National Park

Lots to do and see. Here's two not mentioned, so far. Marble Canyon https://i.imgur.com/oIJBhgpl.jpg Marble Canyon is Just into Kootenay National Park and is about 30 miles from Banff. If you are not going to Jasper, I suggest you at least drive up the Icefields Parkway as far a Bow Glacier https://i.imgur.com/SvjiMHsl.jpg You will see a few glacier and spectacular views. We did both in the same day, driving to Bow Glacier first, had lunch at Hector Lake, and then drove to Marble Canyon. Enjoy your trip. Tom

RE: Buffalo to Myrtle Beach

We usually take 90 to 79 to the PA turnpike and then down through DC to 95. Looking for a less hectic route and thinking of 90 to 79 to 19 to 77 to 74, going through Winston Salem. it looks like a nicer route but don't know what traffic is like around WS on a Saturday morning. We went through Charlotte once and took almost 2 hours to get through the Saturday traffic. Anyone have any ideas? Also looking for a campground to spend the night halfway and it looks like somewhere between Beckley and Princeton is halfway. You would not have trouble through Winston-Salem on a Saturday morning, as long as we are not talking about this fall. Your route would be I-74 to US 52 through Winston-Salem to I-40 East and back to I-74. Beginning this fall, a major thoroughfare, business 40, will be closed for a couple of years. No one knows what that will do to traffic on US 52, but it probably will not be good. Tom

RE: Another route discussion

We drove much of that route in mid February - leaving I77 at I81 in Virginia. The only significant construction I recall was around Daytona Beach (I-95) and north of Charlotte (I-77). We came through Charlotte on a Sunday and didn't have any issues. On the other hand, the Daytona Beach area was a mess, but traffic kept moving. Have a safe trip. Tom

RE: RIP - JohnnyT

I am sorry. My condolences to his family and friends. He was a good man. JohnnyT was the only moderator I have met. In June 2010, I had posted that we would be at the Rondout Valley Resort in Accord, NY for an agility trial. Johnny brought his camper over to the campground so that we could visit. Friday afternoon, I had to help build the ring, and there was Johnny doing more work than anyone else. RIP Tom

RE: Picture test post

Travel Ram, I assume you were using 1492's web app for posing pictures hosted on imgur. If so, when you copy the URL, paste it directly in the message window and don't use the image tool https://www.rv.net/SharedContent/cfb/images/editortoolbar/image.gif In general, if the URL you copy already contains the image tags [IMG]https://i.imgur.com/X0gdzAQl.jpg[/IMG], paste it directly into the message window. If the tags are not present, use the image tool. Note: Don't copy or quote this post. Doing so will negate the trick that was used to display the image tags and URL. https://i.imgur.com/X0gdzAQl.jpg Tom

RE: Missing Posts??

Yes, and sometimes an entire thread. I don't know if that is what is happening, in your case. A polite inquiry of the moderator(s) of the forum in which the post was made, might get tell you. I used to send a private message explaining why a post was deleted. Unfortunately, most took the message as an invitation to debate - usually with profanity. I think most of the moderators have had the same experience, hence no more private messages. Tom

RE: Icon to Indicate Read or Not Read

The forum software has never marked posts (or topics) as read. The forum uses New posts https://www.rv.net/SharedContent/cfb/images/icons/fnew.gif and No new posts icons https://www.rv.net/SharedContent/cfb/images/icons/fnonew.gif to indicate whether or not a new post as been made since your last visit. (More about "last visit" below.) In March 2005, the forum software added two links labeled Mark topics in all forums as read. (One is on the Open Roads Forum index page and one is on you My Forums page.) Neither of them actually does that. Clicking on either of those links changes all of the New posts icons to No new posts icons. "Last visited" really is looking at forum inactivity. The length of inactivity is a preference setting. (Reset last visit option in the General Preferences section.) Example: I log in and see a lot of New posts icons, but I'm distracted and have to leave my computer for a period of time. If my Reset last visit option is set for 30 minutes and I'm gone longer than that, most, if not all, of the New posts icons will have changed to No new posts, as soon as I refresh the page of move to another page. Yet, I haven't read any of them. Tom

RE: It may just be me.

A piece of history about the forum. Once upon a time, the forum had plans to host member pictures - including pictures that were not intended for posting on the forum. The plans reached the level that I posted an announcement on May 5, 2005. Free Photo Hosting Coming To RV.Net As of November of 2005, picture hosting was still on the table. I relayed the last word I heard about it in the 10th post of that thread. Tom

RE: It may just be me.

... Annoying! that this forum still uses a Quick Post/Advanced Post form setup that went away with Vic-20's. And there are several other antiquated interface setups too. Perhaps it would be beneficial to turn off the Quick reply box and only use the Post reply links at the top- and bottom-right of the thread. Display of the quick reply box is governed by a check box at the bottom of the General Preferences section of your My Preferences page. I've use the quick reply box a few times when I was investigating the forum interface, but not since. Tom

RE: It may just be me.

OK, how DID you do that??? :B I have tried to help people in a post with how easy it is to do the html yourself and of course when you type just the bracket in a post to show them what to use, of course it doesn't fly. Did you insert it as a img? As 2oldman indicates, it is done using html character codes &#91 produces [ &#93 produces ] If you use this technique, use the Preview https://www.rv.net/SharedContent/cfb/images/editortoolbar/preview.gif Editor Assistance to make sure everything is as you would like. If you have to open your post with the edit link, you will have to re-enter all of the codes. And yes, I enter the character codes for left and right brackets using html codes so that they would display as character codes. Tom

RE: It may just be me.

Been a member here for years, and even back when I joined, the user interface here was antiquated. I sent many 'nice' requests to the powers that be asking that they get a bit modern and NOTHING was ever done. And that was both before and after the site was sold. I gave up trying to get them to modernize. The only way they will ever do that is for thousands of us to stop coming here. Look at Quick Reply for instance...I don't know of any site left on the internet that has that...where you have to click on Advanced, to activate advanced features. Like BOLD or Italics. And here if you DO click on advanced, all your work is deleted and a new empty box is shown. GAH! So many times I've lost my work simply because I wanted to 'BOLD' something. NONE of the other forums I work on are as antiquated as this one is. Only reason I come here is because it has so many users, so if you have a question about your RV, you'll get lots of answers. But as far as a good 'look & feel' or 'user friendly' operation this site definitely ISN'T up there with the vast majority of web forums. I've enjoyed and learned much from your posts over the years. Here, you missed slightly. When you joined the forum, the interface was antiquated. About six months after you joined, a total rewrite of the software went live. I think most of us said, "this is good." It was better than any other forum I was using at the time. At that time, we could request changes and some were implemented. There was a corporate programmer who had made the forum is project. (I had several email conversations with him and we even talked on the phone.) Unfortunately, he moved on to other endeavors and no one else gave us the support he did. It's now 13 years later and the software is beyond antiquated and has several features that no longer work. I am aware of two times when the moderators knew that the software was to change to a more modern, even if a "canned" commercial program. We even had trial runs with one version and tutorials were being written. The new software went away with no explanation that I heard. By the way, other than preview, save drafts, and open drafts, I never use the editor assistance. Instead, I type in the codes. For example, I find it much easier for me to type [b]bold print here[/b] to produce bold print here. I've studied the forum interface as much as any one, except perhaps the original programmer. It makes me sad to see the state it is in. Note: I used a "trick" to display the bold tags. Quoting this post will negate the "trick." Tom

RE: forum search help

Is the forum going to continue hiding anything over 365 days pulsar? I'm sorry for such a late response - it's very hectic around here. I have no inside information. I can say that the forum is not intentionally hiding the posts. The archiving system is broken. Will it be fixed? I don't know, but when is the last time that anything has been fixed? Tom

RE: Strange problem with My Kwikee Electric Steps

Until yesterday my Kwikee electric steps worked exactly as they were supposed to. Then for some unknown reason the steps stoped working when the motor home ignition is turned off but the steps work correctly when the ignition is turned on. Can anyone tell me what to check? Welcome to the forum. When asking about issues with your rig, it would be helpful to include what rig you have. For example, 2015 Meridian. With no additional information, I also believe that a switch has changed positions. Our steps have a switch, which when in the on position, will open and close the steps whenever the door is open or closed, regardless of the ignition switch. When the switch is in the off position, the steps will open the first time the door is opened and will remain out until the ignition is turned on, with the door closed, or the switch is turned on again and the door is closed.

RE: forum search help

With the information provided, it's tough to do an efficient Google search. With additional information taken from Mortimer Brewster's link, I did a search for site:rv.net Jebby14 "Pro Series" and the post was at top of the result pages. For a discussion of the "archive gap" see here and here Note: quoting or copying this post will change the site:rv.net to site:rv.net. Tom

RE: Maxair fan not working

If yours is like ours, there are two fan off switches in the fan compartment along with the switch at the control center. One is a rocker switch that you could have easily switched off while putting in the pillow. The other is the dial that sets the fan speed; there is a 0 position. Finally, if it is thermostatically controlled, is is warm enough for the fan to come on? Tom
