RE: My CW is now 1/2 a Pet food store???

Well they are loosing RV customers left and right. Due to prices and severe lack of customer service. I see them adding pet products as a way to recoop their losses.

RE: Does this count as a toy hauler?

The only difference between men and boys is the price of their toys. So yes, it's a toy hauler. :) "He who dies with the most toys wins." :B

RE: outdoor patio mat

I also bought the same material for a sun screen off the end of my awning. Keeps the heat out from the sun yet lets the light and breeze come thru and looks real nice. And again folds up flat for storage. I use two hand held clamps and attach to each side of rail under the valance of the awning. For quick removal in case of a storm. Pretty much the same material they use and label as "RV" awning sun shades that they charge sometimes over $200 for!! Cost at Lowes....$20 or $30 bucks. :C

RE: Has anyone used or made or purchased a Genturi exhaust?

I have had a Genturi for years now. won't leave home RV'ing with out it. DIY projects of an exhaust pipe using a gutter etc. is IMHO very dangerous. Genturi pipes have patented stacks that are NOT hot to the touch. Using gutters, etc ARE hot and dangerous. If someone walking past your MH touches it they will get burned and it can burn the side of you MH. Just saying. Also the Genturi has a patented attachment exhaust pipe that does NOT restrict the flow to the gen which is very important for the longevity of your gen. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/RVn05/EXHAUSTenlarge-1.jpg Air intake opening http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/RVn05/1c51e9d0.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/RVn05/d67385c5.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/RVn05/e5bc416c.jpg http://ep.yimg.com/ca/I/rvstuffusa_2060_1769889 http://i59.tinypic.com/w7n9ye.jpg

RE: Explaining RVs/campers to people who just don't get it!

People I talk to about this just don't seem to get it. You're talking to the wrong people! :B Fellow RV'ers get it, that's all that really counts anyway!:C

RE: outdoor patio mat

Sun shade screen material from Lowes, Home Depot, etc. Sold by the length. Find it back in the garden center. Water goes thru it, it doesn't wear out, AND you don't do the slip and slide all over like you do on those dang RV mats. I bought enough to cover the full length of my MH. Add camping stakes to the four corners and it stays where you put it. I actually added four rubber grommets to the four corners for the stake to go thru. It washes off easily and when hung up to dry it dries in minutes so you aren't putting a stinky heavy mat in your storage bay. Weighs practically nothing, comes in very nice colors to choose from, Doesn't kill the grass underneath it that then turns into mud. AND It folds up FLAT int a 12 inch or so square for storage. The best thing I have bought for my MH. It is going on 10 years the SAME mat and it looks like the day I bought it! :)

RE: KOA Petaluma....A mild rant

I stay at KOA CG's exclusively. All I can tell you is make a call to their corporate office and explain what happened and they will take 'real' good care of you. They appreciate feed back so they can resolve any problems with their franchise CG owners. Your phone call will also help other campers in the future not have the same problem. :C

RE: Skylights not roof vents

I'm hoping maybe some of you may have suggestions on what I can use to eliminte the excess heat. Summer is fast approaching and the heat in Florida can be overwhelming. My first summer in Florida sent me running to the store to find 'anything' to cover the huge skylight in my RV to keep the blazing heat from coming in! :B After several attempts here is what works! "Removable" Limo Tint. Key word here is 'removable'. Make sure you read the box carefully to make sure you are buying the 'removable' one. Found at Walmart. 1. Cut to fit. Depending on the size of your skylight Yes you might have some seams but it doesn't matter. 2.Get a small spray bottle and mix dawn and water in it. 3.Spray the inside of the skylight 'liberally' with the soapy mixture. 4.Put tint up and squeegee it REAL good. To get out ALL the bubbles. This unbelievably cut down on the heat coming in thru that gaping skylight! I liked the results so much I added it to my big windows in the front of the coach. Again, it dropped the temps by 20 degrees inside! I take the skylight tint down come cooler weather but I've left it on my coach windows. Going on 4 years now. Looks like a professional tint but with the option to take it off when ever you want. It just peels right off! I also did the windows on my toad. What a difference it made. Dogs were really appreciative that I tinted the windows. That removable tint is going on 8 years now and it looks like the day I put it on. http://i58.tinypic.com/2pt5gdi.jpg

RE: Watcha Towing with three or 4 wheels??for older folks

Pick yourself up a used Chevy Tracker. I found one that was a four door 4x4. Seated 5 people with a substantial storage area behind the back seats when up. Seats where very comfortable and roomy. Put the back seats down and you have an even larger storage area. Tows four down easily. Keep in mind just what you want to do with it after you've parked your RV. If you have friends and/or family with you sometimes you need a car that seats more than just 2! And if you want to tourist shop, hit a couple of sales, or more importantly grocery shop while on the road it sure is nice to have some storage area in the toad you buy. IMHO the Chevy Tracker fits all these bills and has incredible mpg. AND is about the lightest weight toad you will find that isn't a useless cube on wheels. :C

RE: Boxelder bugs!

We had a bad bout of ladybugs on the outside and inside of our RV a couple of years ago. We dealt with them the same way we deal with no seeums, spiders, mosquitoes, flys, etc. in our RV ... we just suck them up with the vacuum and tape over the vacuum hose for a day or two. We've never had any bug escape from the vacumm anyway, as I think that the whole procedure shocks them to death. Works like a champ and it's quick - you can vacuum up hundreds of bugs in just a few minutes. What I do is buy a cheap brand flea collar for dogs. Cut it up in little pieces and put it IN the vacuum bag. That will KILL any and all bugs you suck up. :C

RE: Toddlers in a PUP

AHA!!!!! One more use for duct tape. :D Enjoy your time with the grandson. Garrison Keillor would concur. Two 14 foot strips of duct tape cure many of life's little problems. http://kari-on.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/duck-tape-by-will-bullas.jpg.gif height=300 :B

RE: Changing Oil

Call a local RV Mobile Repair in your area. Call the closest CG to where you live and ask the CG owner who they use for RV Mobile Repair. They come to where your MH is and within an hour or so it will be done. So you do NOT have to take it and leave it anywhere! Convenient, less expensive, AND IMHO better qualified mechanics.

RE: Awning lights

Howdy, just fixed my awning (new fabric) and realy enjoy it. I want to get some tacki lights also. I am lucky as there is radio/CD, 110VAC, 12VDC CATV under a samll panel next to the entry door right under the awing. I think I am going to go with 12vdc LED with realy tacky campers. Does anyone know were to get those? Thank you http://www.oogalights.com/ http://www.partylights.com/Articles/camping-lights-string Plethora plus of tacky lights! Just click on novelty for the real crazy ones! I'm partial to the ones that look like shot gun shells. :B

RE: A solution to defeating ants?

The Sevin DUST is not toxic. The Sevin GRANULES is toxic to pets. ...sprinkling Sevin all around your rig,... You do NOT spread it ALL around your coach. Spread a ring around your tires, hose, electrical cord.

RE: Boxelder bugs!

In the Midwest they would cover an entire wall of your house on the sunny side. I put a lot of dawn in a hand held water bottle sprayer, just short of where the sprayer bottle would not spray if too much was added. Or where the water inside the bottle turned a medium orange from the dawn. For me just one time application did the trick after seeing them. Just a note don't let your pets get at them or eat them they have a toxic juice in them. Tastes bad so they do spit them out but then there are the determined dumb dogs that do keep eating them! This also works on those Chinese biting lady bugs too.

RE: Water Pump Leaking

Unless you 'put the antifreeze into your fresh water tank' and pumped it thru out the coach. Yes it could be cracked from frozen water left in the pump. The only way any and 'all' the water left in water pump is treated is by putting the antifreeze in the fresh tank and pumping it thru the pump. I lived where temps went 'well below freezing' which is why I did it that way, Either way I would replace it. IMHO Not worth jury rigging it and having it break down on the road later on.

RE: A solution to defeating ants?

If they are already in your coach yes it can take up to 10 days to get rid of them with the ant baits. But it does work eventually then be pro active.

RE: Boxelder bugs!

Real simple fix. Dawn dish soap and water in a spray bottle.....box elder bugs gone!

RE: Awning lights

Since you don't have an outside outlet. Check inside where your fridge vent is. There usually is an outlet mounted on the side in there and the fridge is plugged into one side of it leaving one open. Or if you are not a boondocker, just run an extension cored under the coach to pedestal and plug into the 110 outlet. And....IMHO I do NOT attach lights to the roller of the awning because if a storm comes up you most likely will not have time to undo all those lights before you can roll up your awning to save your awning. And that could cost you your awning. Been there done that, don't do that anymore. If you are looking to light up under your awning and not just for the fun of putting up tacky lights (that is what they call them no joke)! I use a brooder lamp with a push tension clamp and use either a cfl or led bulb. I clamp it to the arm and point it upward and it lights up the whole underside of the awning. Takes 2 seconds to unclamp it to roll up awning. http://i.imgur.com/F783y8cl.png height=300

RE: A solution to defeating ants?

YUP! All it took was one trip to Florida to learn real quick how to stop those dang ants. 1. First of all go and buy those liquid Terro ant traps and place them under each sink and under the couch and under the stove. And be sure to replace them through out the year and forever! 2. Then sprinkle Seven all the way around all the tires AND where the electrical cord and water hose touch the ground. 3. And do NOT lean anything up against your RV. I had my ant problems all taken care of and then I forgot and leaned my awning pole up against the RV and there they were marching right up the awning pole and into the weep holes of the window and inside my MH. :S Be sure to only buy the Sevin 'dust' one, NOT the granules which is harmful to pets. I've tried them all and these two products are what has worked. http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/productImages/1000/a8/a8059624-aae7-46d4-a5d1-6568aebcf823_1000.jpg height=350 http://woodstream.scene7.com/is/image/woodstream/ter_us-bt300-a.fw?$ProductPgLarge2$ height=300
