RE: Winter Garden, Fl.

Come up a little North and see the Rainbow Springs. Amazing crystal clear blue waters. The just finished extending the bike trails thru this area. And at least you will be able to visit the Rainbow Springs River in the area which are just down right amazing. Rent a kayak/canoe/snorkle and do the river when you are not biking!! Tons of CG's in this area and some along the river and state parks all close by. CG offshoot of the state parks is right on the head springs of the river located at https://www.google.com/#tbm=lcl&q=campground+18185+sw+94th+street+in+dunnellon+fl&rlfi=hd:;si:4001674527468299572;mv:!1m3!1d8752.209308510695!2d-82.42969135!3d29.09513005!2m3!1f0!2f0!3f0!3m2!1i202!2i241!4f13.1

RE: Best Route Around Chicago

Take 90/80 west to 294 north, to 94 west to Minneapolis, MN. X2 From Chicago and this really is the best route. Of course don't plan your trip during the week during rush hour. Weekends on this route are a breeze.

RE: T-mobile use outside of USA.

Keep an eye on this before you leap. They just announced that t-mobile and Sprint are thinking of merging. https://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/columnist/baig/2017/05/22/what-potential-t-mobile-sprint-merger-means-you/101887432/# I have real unlimited data no throttling thru Sprint, grandfathered in. I personally hope this merger deal falls thru as I have coverage everywhere I go. And it will most likely affect phone data costs too.

RE: What size of power drill for scissor jack socket?

Get one big enough to work that is not a hammer drill. I don't mind hearing screaming kids playing and having a good time but I hate hearing the hammer drills banging across the campground because somebody is too lazy to bend down and turn a crank. Now I'll go back to pushing my button quietly to raise and lower my stabilizers on my trailer. It's not lazy when it comes with the trailer!!! X10 Impact guns should be banned from CG's. I had a guy pull in next to me around 11:00 at night and used an impact gun to level. What a jerk.

RE: bathroom smells while travelling

Sorry you are wrong. In 'most' RV's the bathroom sink does drain into the black. OP has a Class C MH, his sink empties into the black. ...... Wow, what an insanely arrogant, yet totally incorrect statement. I had a class C, without a doubt, my bathroom sink emptied into the grey tank. Some do, some don't. You contradict yourself. Bash me for an incorrect statement and then make the same statement.:? And Yup, and that is pretty much what I said....."MOST" DO. :R

RE: Alexa, are you connected to the CIA?

The information they collect and use will be related to your viewing, shopping and other habits. It will be collected electronically, and you will see ads and content that relates to those habits. READ the damnn privacy policies of each of them, Google and Amazon for cripes sake. :R Then READ WHO all the subsidiaries are of each of them, that they themselves STATE they share private info with which in return that third party is allowed to sell the info to 'their' subsidiaries and other third parties. AND THEN tell us how all of THOSE "totally unrelated and removed from online shopping companies" are using your info to enhance your shopping sprees? AND you believe all of this NOT true? So both Amazon and Google are lying about their own Privacy Policies??:H

RE: Help identify purpose for holes in window frame

And see that tiny drain hose sticking out between the vents? That is your drain for the fridge. Since it sticks out to the wind and grime of the road it 'will' get plugged up. So put that on your maint. list too! Just find something same size as opening and stick it in there and clean when you see it has stopped working.

RE: Mobile home park and RVing

We just got a new manager and the first notice out said motor home were not to be parked in front of house all day... This is a perfect example of why having an RV/Boat etc and buying a home where there are any type of HOA's in place is 'never' a good idea. The HOA when you buy the house may have certain rules that you are ok with and fit your needs, BUT, like I stated many times.....they elect a new President every year and the next guy can get the whole HOA changed if he so desires and gets the votes to do so. And in some HOA's the President of the Association doesn't even need votes to change it. And in my experience there is never a grandfather clause. what happens is the majority of the home owners, who 'news flash' most are NOT RV owners are changing the rules because they don't like them so they don't grandfather anyone in. The RV owner always looses. To the OP: You won't have a leg to stand on. The change in the rules will stay in place and won't be able to park the MH.

RE: Help identify purpose for holes in window frame

Weep holes. And it should be on you list of maintenance items to make sure they are cleaned out regularly. Dirt, road grim and if you park under trees bits and pieces and seeds can get into them also. Plugged weep holes = water inside your RV.

RE: Alexa, are you connected to the CIA?

The information they collect and use will be related to your viewing, shopping and other habits. It will be collected electronically, and you will see ads and content that relates to those habits. To me, that isn't an issue and may even be a benefit. Yes, I might get more ads for RVs and hard core narcotics, but at least I am not bombarded with ads for feminine hygiene products and children's toys. No one is taking the time to watch your webcam. They are not secretly recording your conversations and playing them back at their secret black ops dinners. You can be assured of this because you are not interesting enough for that to be of any value, entertainment-wise or otherwise. All that data mining, data sharing and data storing is done for one reason, to make it easier for them to attempt to get you to part with your money. And as far as I am concerned, if data mining makes it easier for me to find the goods and services I want, that is an advantage. It's ok, if that is what you believe and BTW, that IS what THEY want you to believe everything will be just fine. :B:CThen what do you believe they are trying to do? Knowing every single minute detail of my life wouldn't benefit anyone one iota. If they are all seeing and all powerful, what would I have that they could want? My 60 inch TV? Doubt it, they probably have one much bigger and better. Do they want to somehow cheat me out of my parks? it would be a lot easier and cheaper to just buy them or use eminent domain to seize them then it would to study all my various rantings and figure some way to beat me out of them. And why the heck would someone who had the world at their fingertips want an RV park in the first place? It is my experience that people who see grand conspiracies everywhere see them because it is more palatable to believe their own shortcomings are the fault of some grand scheme conspiring against them than it is to realize their shortcomings are their own fault. Throughout history people have blamed politics, the weather, their bosses, immigrants, their heritage and countless other things they don't control as a reason they haven't reached the level of success they had hoped to obtain. Occam's Razor is almost always correct. The simplest explanation is the correct explanation. In my opinion that holds true as to data collection. They want to sell you stuff, plain and simple. They don't want to develop some spider web of data to somehow control your thoughts and actions beyond that simple goal. Well it looks like they have done a very fine job of dumbing down America. :C

RE: Alexa, are you connected to the CIA?

AND they share the info with all of these subsidiaries that are owned by Amazon which is endless.:R https://www.zacks.com/stock/news/215339/the-complete-guide-to-everything-owned-by-amazon Do you have any proof of this or is it all just speculation? It is clearly STATED in their private policies. Just read them. :R

RE: bathroom smells while travelling

the sink in the bathroom does not drain into the black tank, it goes into thr gray tank. Sorry you are wrong. In 'most' RV's the bathroom sink does drain into the black. OP has a Class C MH, his sink empties into the black. Those with 5'ers usually have an extra gray(galley)tank may not. All you have to do is drain your black tank and leave it open and run the water in the bathroom sink and see if it runs out. Many of you will be mildly surprised! :C Which also is why so many ask why their black tank fills up so fast. Have a family of 4 on board washing up and brushing teeth in the sink everyday and that is why the black fills up so fast. I travel solo and when I don't have hookups I don't use the bathroom sink and that alone extends my stay before having to dump by 2 days. Smell in bathroom and everything is working right? Empty p-trap in bathroom sink.

RE: buyer beware

Just look at window ac units on line at Walmart. They will have the same unit listed 'several' times and each one is a different price. At the walmart in my town they will NOT match their on line prices. Online is online and on the shelf is on the shelf prices. Funny they honor matching competitors pricing but not their own. :R

RE: bathroom smells while travelling

my guess is the water in the pee trap is draining out as you drive and the grey tank smell is coming up through the sink. X2 Also in hot weather if you don't use the bathroom sink often or you have left it parked for awhile between trips the water in the sink p-trap evaporates. Since it drains into black tank the sewer smell will come right up thru the sink drain. I've had it happen quite a few times traveling in the south. I don't wash my hands in the bathroom sink because it makes the black tank fill up faster. Sooo the p-trap water evaporates all the time. :R Just add water to the sink to fill p-trap.

RE: solar blinds

When I was not home I closed all my blinds. Wouldn't want some automated system opening them for thieves to look in! Anyway, Who would want them opening and closing and opening a little and then closing every time a cloud passed over the sun all day long. :?

RE: Running fridge while driving

Back at my old stick and bricks. The big huge truck that backed into my driveway to fill my propane tank RUNS on propane! So not only is he carrying a huge bomb of propane his truck runs off of propane while he is running down the road! So no I don't think driving my MH with a tiny propane tank on board in the on position is going to trump that!:C

RE: Alexa, are you connected to the CIA?

All I know is after I die I'd like to come back as a cop/detective. What a cushy job it will be in the not so distant future. All you'd have to do is sit back at a desk/computer and gather all the info you need to find and arrest a criminal with all the gathering, listening and sharing these electronics are offering up. We are pretty much already there with the electronics attached at the hip to most of the millennium generation and they themselves already blindly sharing every detail of their name address's and where they are 24 7's about themselves which is pretty much un-retractable. :B Law enforcement is already using Facebook to their advantage.
