RE: Boondocking in Webster FL

DW and I plan on stopping in Webster, FL this Feb. We have been to the flea mkt. a few times but never boondocked there. I assume you can just show up Sunday and pick a spot across the road from the flea mkt. Do I need to contact the office first? Any other advice would be appreciated. That spot across the street is their parking lot not just an empty field. On flea market days it is jammed packed with cars. And I have never seen an RV parked there vendor or otherwise. You would definitely have to contact them first to park there overnight in an RV. My guess is they won't let you. here's phone number http://websterwestsidefleamarket.com/vendor-info/ There are a ton of small inexpensive CG's in that area.

RE: Class A wash machine and residential refrigerator storing

http://i59.tinypic.com/2u5f4o5.gif And I would make sure the fridge is 'completely defrosted', the drip tray and entire fridge wiped down dry, and then sprayed cleaned with a bleach cleaning spray AND make sure you have something lodged in the door so it can not close on you. Nothing worse than come spring and you've got mold growing all over your fridge which happens fast in a closed up RV.

RE: So..you think you are just gonna shoot the bear?

One bear encounter? Try 3! :B Last year I had to sell a house I had just bought in Florida after just 4 months because it had 3 bears on the property that insisted it was THEIR property all 10 acres of it. 2 took over the front 5 and the big one claimed the back 5. :R Here to tell you the noise, bells, horns jump up and down and look big all do NOT work. And unlike the grizzly where you can lay down and play dead in hopes of surviving, try that tactic with a Florida Black Bear they kill you. How about you are sleeping in bed in your own house and hear this huge bang? And in the morning you see THIS on the window above your head? You know you have a serious bear problem. http://i65.tinypic.com/2dalh5g.jpg The house went up for sale the same day one of them chased me off my own pier while I was fishing. He appeared on the other side of a 20 foot deep canal and was in the water and up on my side in seconds and chased me all the way to the house.

RE: RV antifreeze test

Cool Test. Great visual aid pictures. Thank you very much for providing it! :C And THIS thread showing the picture of the 'water only' bottle should be a sticky for all the posts this year that gave the advice that: It's ok NOT to winterize if the temps only go down for one day. And it's ok NOT to winterize if the 'next' day is warm. :S If that frozen water bottle had been an RV water line with a pex fitting it would have blown apart....in just one day no matter what the next day temperature was. http://i.imgur.com/e8d2dO4l.jpg http://i.imgur.com/qclz5DFl.jpg

I love the South and I love green beans. But did you know that in the South they put green beans in a pot of water and cook them ALL DAY until they are mush? :E

RE: Camping world Ocala Service ANOTHER BAD EXPERIENCE

..Before pickup they installed an awning. We also purchased the extended warentee... After using awning for the first time we found that it was not installed properly and would catch and not roll out on the left side... Another week went by and not a word. Finally, I called and they said Oh yes it had been ready for a few days and the charge would be $136 Seems they had forgotten to call us... The service manager said they spend over an hour fixing the awning, not my problem had it been installed correctly in the first place there would not have been an issue... And he was not happy about the original service adviser noting that there would be no charge on my bill. Again not my problem... Wow, what part of, if they installed incorrectly 'they' should fix it no charge, don't they understand? Good thing you spoke up, albeit you should not have had to. IMHO in addition to posting here I would print your post out and mail it directly to the Store Manager.

RE: Basement organization

Clear plastic tubs and/or diligently use magic marker on what's inside. Even as you add stuff. X2 on ONCE a year emptying ALL the bays and throwing out or putting away stuff you don't need or haven't used. Amazingly during my clean out, there always is about 50 lbs of stuff every year that doesn't need to be in the RV. :B

RE: Goofy Garmin Directions

Double check your preferences. Sounds like you have Shortest route selected. I've had it default back to that after recharging or unplugging it. Before a trip I always check to see that shortest route is NOT selected and/or you have it as a default.

RE: Fridge Maintenance

Does anyone ever pour a little bleach in the tray so mold does not form in the drain line ? No, Straight bleach can eat into rubber seals o rings etc. I found THIS product to work real well for bleaching instead of straight bleach. Only the 'brand' name one works so you have to look very carefully at the label. Lot of knock offs/generic ones out there don't work. Also Chlorox makes a couple different ones, Look for the words 'clean-up' on the bottle. That's the only one that kills 99% germs and wipes out mold. This stuff kills mold instantly. I use it for everything in the MH.....now that I'm in mold city Florida! :C Chlorox "Clean-Up" Spray https://www.clorox.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/cloroxcleanupcleanerwithbleachoriginal.png

RE: finding laundromats?

I found that every town has one even the little podunk towns. So where ever you decide to go into town for supplies there will be one. I usually just ask the gas station clerk when I am fueling, or grocery store cash register person 'they' seem to always know where the laundromat 'is' in town. :C

RE: Shower drain

I use the baking soda /vinegar/hot water trick it will blow out anything that is stuck in a p-trap! It is AMAZING how well it works. I use it on a regular maintenance basis for both the MH and the house. Keeps all drains slick and clean and draining fast.

RE: Letting my truck sit for 6 months over winter

Do NOT put the bait near the truck! They call it BAIT for a reason: It ATTRACTS the mice. Respective disagree. Mice are going to come into ANY warm closed area for the winter that they can get into, whether there is food or not. They do NOT need food present for them to come in, they are looking to nest. They are not coons etc that ARE attracted to food. You place poison bait because you want them dead BEFORE they start nesting and start chewing and before they do any damage. I did NOT bait first 2 years snowbirding truck stored inside a closed storage unit. = chewed wires and mouse droppings all over the engine both times. Mice inside generator on MH damaged the gen, no food in there yet they were! 3rd year snowbirding I Baited the truck = KILLED them BEFORE they could get to my wires. No damage that year, bait had been eaten. Sorry I will continue to put out poison bait inside the storage unit as does the storage company does outside each unit. It's to PREVENT them from getting in to nest and cause damage.

RE: PA campgrounds open year round

You will find a lot of them still open with electric and sewer but no water hookup. Really is not a problem because their shower/bath houses water are still hooked up because they are heated buildings. Use them for your showers and bathroom needs. That's what I did on the way south during the winter months while traveling thru the midwest.

RE: Seat belt problems

Just returned from a looooong trip across the United States and back in my recently acquired 1993 , 27 ft Class C motor home. It is a Majestic, built on a Ford E-350 chassis. The only problem I had was leaking window seals in the rain and the driver's side seat belt. The belt barely pulls out enough to fasten around my waist when it decides to allow it. Right now it is about 3 inches too short to allow proper fastening. Apparently the belt is stuck somewhere in the retraction mechanism. I cannot readily see how to remove and disassemble the mechanism for repair.Any ideas or suggestions ?-Denver BEFORE you go off and have it replaced...... There is a plastic holder up near the top of the back of the drivers seat that the belt goes thru. The holder is on a swivel and the holder GETS STUCK up against the back of the seat preventing the belt to come all the way down. Common problem on the older models. Reach up and move the plastic holder back into the correct position. The belt will then come down to the right length to clip in. Been there done that and it STILL happens to me all the time. It's just a bad design and location too close to seat and holder gets stuck. I think from when we release the belt it slaps up and pushes the holder into the wrong position for the next you use it. To this day when I enter the MH I move the holder back into position before I even get in.

RE: Letting my truck sit for 6 months over winter

Do it all the time and no problem with tires. I have had more problems with MICE. They get under the hood and start chewing wires. :R Just-One-Bite is the only one I found that actually works. If you do NOT have pets around I use the bags under the vehicle. Place them by each tire. And place the big bars under the hood. I crawl underneath and place a big bar on each axle in the middle. Try and kill them before they get to the engine. http://www.justonebitebrand.com/images/job2_top.jpg Don't get the green water resistant ones they do NOT work mice won't touch them. Get the yellow ones, they like those!:B Last year I left the truck for over 8 months and the above arsenal tactics is what finally worked. Feed stores carry it and some Tractor Supply stores. http://www.justonebitebrand.com/agricultural.html

RE: sleeping bag falls off cushions with no kid attached

Yoga/exercise mats are way better than shelf liner. Actually I found those yoga mats do a WAY better job sticking anything you need not to slip and they are larger than shelf liner. I use two of them on my cabover under the dog crates. Yup the dogs ride up in the cabover when traveling on down the road. Yoga mats keep the crates firmly in place. Don't buy the expensive yoga mats from a fancy yoga health club place. They sell them way cheaper at Walmart! :C http://www.walmart.com/search/?query=yoga%20mats%20and%20exercise%20mats&typeahead=yoga%20mat
