RE: 14 day meal planning

I cook and freeze stuff. 2 weeks of food in the freezer is normal for me when camping. I agree with the person who said it makes more time for fun! X2 Yup. I cook up chili, stews, noodle/rice pork/beef dinners, homemade soup, etc at home and freeze them in small containers. Keeps me out of the dreaded fast food restaurants while traveling to my destination too. Stop at a rest area and just pop one in the micro for a healthier food experience! Even after I went Full Time RV'ing I STILL used this method for healthier food. I would pick one day during the month, hunker down in a CG I liked and spend the day cooking up the same and freezing them in containers. I bought a nice Coleman stove that could accommodate 2 big pots and start cooking. Only thing is the aroma of a good homemade chicken soup at a CG? Starts your fellow campers circling you RV wanting to know whats for supper and when! :B http://i45.tinypic.com/jr2zau.jpg

RE: where do old motorhomes go to die?

I registered on here for some moral support. We are having a hard time getting rid of our class a holiday rambler. You see, we let her sit too long at the side of our house. Our daughter lived full time and moved recently. We had to have her towed out of our yard - to the mechanic and it was worse than what we thought. We have paid $2500 so far and that was our limit. She won't pass SMOG. So far, no donation place will take it. Talked to pick and pull and they won't take it and said no one likes to take the old motorhomes. We don't want to put any more money into it. We just want it gone. Any ideas? Tried to giveit away for someone to live in, but they would still need to have it registered and smogged in California. This is a nightmare. Yup small local junkyards or salvage won't take them. They all told me it's because of the propane on board etc. New EPA and local gov restrictions them from taking them in, for those that adhere to the rules and regs. They said they would have to invest in removing the propane and that in itself requires a permit etc etc. Not worth it for them. Here is a great place I found where I used to live to donate MH's to. Rawhide Boys Ranch. Founded by Bart Starr. They do have connections across the different states. It's a REAL charitable organization where you know your donation will go for a good cause. AND you will be able to deduct your donation. ....""Then consider donating it to Rawhide—a nonprofit co-founded by NFL Hall of Famer Bart Starr. Your car donation can change lives of at risk teens and families who use our services. We also consider boat, motorcycle, RV, motor home, camper, and jet ski donations. If in doubt, call us!..."" http://www.rawhide.org/car-vehicle-donations/ http://www.rawhide.org/

RE: Anyone switch from a motor home to a fifth wheel?

Went from FW to a MH. Which gives the same diff's only in reverse! For me it was the ability to just pull into a CG, put it in park and open a cold one. THAT doesn't happen with a FW or TT. You are out there setting up forever and then reversing the whole process when it's time to leave.

RE: RV river barge cruises

I stayed at a CG right on the Mississippi for a week. Watching all the numerous commercial barges navigating that river 24 7's?....... Nope, I don't think I would want my MH and me on a barge going down the Mississippi. I think the gov had it right this time about the safety of it. :B

RE: Tornado Weather

.....about twice as many people are killed every day in auto accidents as apposed to half as many that are killed every year from tornado's........ The odds say you are worried about the wrong thing..........by a LOT! WOW, just wow. What horrible and the most unsafe advice I have ever heard of. The loss of just one life in any situation is one too many. Especially when you can take precautions to avoid it. :R:R It's not advice, it's fact. Tornado FACTS If one life is too much why are you on the road because over 30,000 people are killed every year on the roads of the US. Compare that to 60 or so deaths every year from tornado's. Gamble much? Tornado: Been there done that 2 homes damaged AND on the road in my RV AND in a CG. Bad enough to lift my 31 foot right off the ground and slam it back down. Had to get a tow truck to lift it up again to get all the CG stuff that flew under it to be able to move it. Sorry for your experience. You're one of few and your still here to tell about it. You didn't say how over how many years this happened but it's a safe bet that over those years millions have died on the road and only hundreds have died from tornado's in the same time period. Gamble much? Tornadoes are a VERY VERY life threatening serious situation. And so are bees and wasps. :S And they kill about the same amount of people in the US every year. Do you give the same advice about them as you do about tornado's? Do you put on a bee suit when out and about? Remember, you have about the same odds of being killed by bees and losing one life it too many according to you. Yes just driving down the road on a sunny day an idiot can hit and kill you. BUT, BIG BUT 'knowing' and 'being aware' of WHERE a tornado is and 'AVOIDING' it is just plain common, life saving sense. Very good advice. It's always good to be aware Be aware, and be prepared to take the best cover you can to avoid a tornado period. Good advice. It's always good to be prepared and avoid a tornado. OP, look up the stat's for yourself. It's all readily available online. Again, this chart is very graphic way to show what your are dealing with. :S What ARE you smoking? Rambling on about statistics of how many people are killed by what has NOTHING, NOTHING to do with a PREDICTED, and/or WARNING OF IMPENDING DANGER broadcast over National airwaves to PREVENT a danger to peoples. I.E. Therefore the danger CAN be AVOIDED. Has nothing to do with hap instance stats of what in nature can kill people. Sorry bud they don't have sirens for a bee swarm they DO for a pending tornado. :B But then again you are probably one of those that when a hurricane warning comes out ""5 days in advance"" for evacuation....you stay and then put our EMT's in danger when they have to come in and rescue your sorry arse. :R It's called preparedness and PREVENTION, look it up!

RE: Zero G hose for drinking water?

Our Drinking water hose has a small label on one end from some safety council as an approved drinking water hose. It's at the coach so I can't read it. those without that approval are questionable. May not get sick from drinking pvc and polymides and synthetic female hormondes but I prefer not to gamble. I hate the water hose taste. Have you smelled some of the Chinese rubber hoses or plastic hoses? Reminds me of raw rubber and the treatment they used on army tents and every thing else. I don't drink out of mud puddles any more either. What is a synthetic female hormondes ?? :p The name and acronmyms escapes right now but they were developed as synthetic female hormones but did not perform as they wished. They have been used to line jsut about all cans and palstic bottles and hoes linings for water. They were found to harden the linings and to keep liquids in and gasses like CO2 from escaping porous plastic bottles. Canad and much of the world has banned them. In the U they are only banned from baby bottles, if that now. They do bleed into whatever is in the container, from water to beer and they do invade the body and serve the function they were originally designed for to an extent.It has been proven that they are taken up by the body and become part of the makeup of the endocryn natural output. In other words they are passed along to our children. Maybe this is the reason American men seem so docile and whiney these days and girls reach puberty much younger and are much more developed and logic and judgement is twisted. For the life of me i do not understand why FDA continues to let them be used. Just read anything regarding the testing of products on the FDA gov site. You will see that 'big business' and ONLY big business drives what FDA approves and what is not approved. Safety has nothing to do with it. If banning it will affect big business they just simply up the ppm where it causes cancer to a level that big business can deal with. We the people and our health are not taken into consideration. ".....BPA is a weak synthetic estrogen found in many rigid plastic products, food and formula can linings, dental sealants, and on the shiny side of paper cashier receipts (to stabilize the ink). Its estrogen-like activity makes it a hormone disruptor, like many other chemicals in plastics. Hormone disruptors can affect how estrogen and other hormones act in the body, by blocking them or mimicking them, which throws off the body's hormonal balance. Because estrogen can make hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer develop and grow, many women choose to limit their exposure to these chemicals that can act like estrogen. ....."BPA also seems to affect brain development in the womb. In 2011, a study found that pregnant women with high levels of BPA in their urine were more likely to have daughters who showed signs of hyperactivity, anxiety, and depression. ...." http://www.breastcancer.org/risk/factors/plastic Ban BPA? Then the manufactures just substituted this ingredient. :R ..."The model suggested that one of Tritan's ingredients—triphenyl phosphate, or TPP—was more estrogenic than BPA...." Eastman, which never disclosed these findings to its customers, later commissioned another study, this one involving breast cancer cells. Again, the initial results appeared positive for estrogenic activity.

RE: Zero G hose for drinking water?

I'll just add that whether it is labeled safe for drinking water or not. If you are RV'ing in the South green mold grows inside ALL hoses if left outside for any length of time. I was just plumb shocked when I saw that. And its 'not' algae it is green 'mold'. A lot of my normal RV camping habits related to the MH changed drastically once I hit that Georgia/Florida line. It was an eye opener for sure for this Midwestern. :C

RE: Tornado Weather

I am heading east starting Saturday. I will be traveling through NM,OK,HS,IL,IN,OH etc. My wife is worried about tornado's and is starting to rub off on me. I will be stopping in Hugoton, KS, and then Melvern, KS. We will be traveling on the 50/56 mostly and there was just a big tornado going just past Dodge City, KS. I am used to monsoons here in AZ. They usually start up in the early evening and don't last more than an hour. I'm not sure what questions to ask. Just looking for any advice on traveling through tornado country. Weather reports are usually given by 'county' and/or the name of a small town. When we are RV'ing we don't have a clue what county's we are traveling thru. And on the interstate signs not all of the surrounding towns are listed. That is what happened to me. Weather radio screaming about a tornado rapidly crossing into X county and I didn't have a clue what county or small town I was traveling by/thru on the interstate. :R Since that frightening event I print out a clearly marked 'county' road map of the states I will be traveling thru. If needed, At a glance I can see if I am driving in the path of predicted bad weather. Sometimes you just have to resort to the old fashion way. :C

RE: Memorial Day - Where are you camping?!

...Am I missing something, didn't the OP ask "Where are you camping" This weekend? Not why you won't go.... Yup. Home IS an answer for WHERE are you camping. And I don't think anyone is breaking any forum rules in adding why. :W

RE: New and nervous!

Always ask for a "pull thru" site when calling ahead for a CG. That way you don't have to unhook the toad just for the night. AND easy in and easy out in a 'pull thru' site.

RE: What is the etiquette when staying at Walmart pkg lots

We've never done it before and we're trying to make good time on our outgoing leg to California. We have reservations everywhere except tomorrow night - and of course it's the first day of Memorial Day weekend. So just pulling in and finding a place available will be very slim. So we might keep an eye out for Walmart and Flying J. If we pull into one of those to sleep, what it the etiquette? I thought once I read you park with the semis at Flying Js so that might be a problem for noise and slide outs etc. Unless I read wrong. But what about Walmart? Generators? If so how long can you run them? Do we get permission from the store? Thanks!! IMHO,JMHO Stay at a Flying J. The crazies are out in full force on the weekends in a Wally World parking lot...and I don't mean the customers.

RE: Zero G hose for drinking water?

Looks like camco came up with a better fresh water hose. Heavy duty reinforced. Could possibly be better than the Camco white hard one. Looks like it coils up better. But get the name! TastePURE Premium Drinking Water Hose. As if the water will 'taste better' and 'be purer' than their plain old white model.:S Ya, and like this one will have less lead in the connectors!:R http://www.walmart.com/ip/Camco-TastePURE-50-Premium-Drinking-Water-Hose-5-8-ID/29764296?action=product_interest&action_type=title&item_id=29764296&placement_id=irs-2-m3&strategy=PWVUB&visitor_id&category=&client_guid=22411dec-72ea-4d1d-9451-0ae1a0bcc26d&customer_id_enc&config_id=2&parent_item_id=14504302&parent_anchor_item_id=14504302&guid=e373d83d-d8c2-4a9c-9820-c06132fd8bc7&bucket_id=irsbucketdefault&beacon_version=1.0.1&findingMethod=p13n

RE: Replacing RV Microwave

x2 You will be hard pressed to find one that vents up like the original RV one did unless you buy a residential above the stove micro and they cost a way lot more money. I have found them at small camping stores priced reasonably. And you can order them from any RV dealership or find them in their camping store too.

RE: questions,,,newbie,,,,confused ,,engine issues ?
