RE: Perfect sunny side up eggs

You don't have to start out with filling the pan with water. Just put butter in pan like you always do and when the eggs are just about done and ready....all you have to do is put a very small amount of water in the rim of the cover and put the cover on for few seconds and they are done to perfection yet still taste like they were fried and not poached. Since I was show how to do it this way I haven't flipped an egg in a frying pan for years!!! http://i57.tinypic.com/2z74k7n.gif

No I did NOT sign up for your emails

RE: Dipping our toes into snow bird with TT

pasusan:..... It just seemed a lot of people were wasting their lives with their daily trip to Wal-Mart, playing cards/bingo/horseshoes/etc., standing in line on Wednesdays for their free piece of pie, watching their clothes go round and round in the dryer at the Laundromat...... :?

RE: Dipping our toes into snow bird with TT

Also check the CG's policy on dogs. There are many new CG rules in place as to the size and breed of dogs allowed in CG's. Just a heads up for you.

RE: Cooking with kiln-dried wood?

Ditto on NOT using the pressure treated also called wolmanized wood up in the north. I've seen kiln dried wood be treated also. http://www.wisegeek.org/what-is-kiln-dried-lumber.htm snip-it "Drying it in a controlled environment is important, as it allows the wood to contract without warping. The lumber may also be treated with chemicals so that it will resist insects, mold, mildew, and rot; treated lumber tends to be......"

RE: Medicines while traveling

Beware of Walmart's lower med prices. They use third world pharmaceutical companies. That is why their prices are so low. Check the labels on your meds you will be shocked to see what countries your meds are coming from. And they do NOT have to follow the US standards. FDA did an expose on these countries pharmaceutical practices and it goes from not the right dosage to dangerous impurities in the products. If you saw the pictures of where and how these pills are made you would never put one in your mouth ever again! Nope. I won't ever buy meds from Walmart. In fact I always REFUSE a generic being used for my prescriptions also.

RE: Shower hygiene

First, check your body's ph balance. Once that is corrected you don't have to worry about fungus or athlete's foot. I don't think there is much to worry about in a public shower. If it's 'dirty it's not disease', it's dirt. respectively have to disagree with you on this one. Seen too many CG showers where the low life's seem to think they can use it as a toilet. :( So no, if it's 'dirty' with pee it CAN be a disease and it's not just dirt! :B

RE: Shower hygiene

Dieing from a disease is not the main issue with public facilities. It's athletes foot and Hep B. And THAT IS VERY prevalent in public showers, bathrooms. Being prudent to 'avoid' contact is just good camping habits. :C

RE: door lock

lock mechanism is made of pot metal and breaks. Many of us have been either locked in or locked out due to these locks. It cost me over $500.00 to have my lock taken out and a new one installed. And leaving damage to the door getting it out. Only to have the same thing happen a year later. :R BEFORE you install the second one they gave you. Ask them if the one they gave you has the updated part in it. You can go on line and buy the part that replaces the pot metal one but then 'you' have to pay for it in addition to the lock. I STILL can not believe that this company is allowed to continue to sell this defective lock that is known to break.

RE: Brakes - No Brakes

2004 Coachman 28' C on Ford E450 chassis with the V10 eng. BRAKE LINES I came off a ramp after driving for 4 hours and had no brakes! Yup you do see you life flash before your eyes! Collapsed Brake lines are a very common problem and ALWAYS overlooked by repair. The lines will look perfectly ok from the 'outside'. BUT They collapse on the 'inside'. It can come an go until the fatal day you don't manage to stop. It's an accident waiting to happen if your mechanic is not knowledgeable about truck brake lines. I managed to get to a semi truck repair shop that day and had new ones put on. I did have to stay overnight because there are no aftermarket brake lines for the Ford E-450. I had to wait for the OEM parts to be delivered. I certainly did NOT have a problem waiting for them! I recommend anyone buying a used MH to just go ahead and have the brake lines replace. IMHO a Small maintenance price to pay when you life is at hand.:C

RE: Sewer smell

There should 'never' be a sewer smell inside your RV. Make sure water is left in toilet bowl at all times. Make sure all your pee traps, sinks and shower have water in them, it can evaporate when parked not used in hot weather. After dumping at a CG fill the tank up with water and dump again to rinse and then add some water to the tank. I never run with a completely dry black tank. Always have some water in it. If this is a used RV you also may have a build up sewage in the tank from the previous owner not having enough water in it at all times and/or leaving the black tank valve open at CG's where the poop piles up and dries out. Next time you go to a CG dump and and fill up with water and dump 'several' times and see if that helps. Your gray tank can smell just like sewer also when it is dirty and nasty. Throw a quart bottle of lemon cleaner down the sink and fill with water and dump. Hope some of the info helps you!

RE: Shower hygiene

Ditto. Ditto, on the flip flops or rubber sandals for CG showers. AND They are ONLY used for the showers. They come off after out of the shower building and are not worn into the MH. Can't tell you how many CG showers I have walked into and found pee on the shower floor. :R

RE: E-450 Exhausting Drive

It's not an "E-450" problem. It is the make and model of the MH. I drove MANY MH's before I bought and some make/models where SO loud and handling sucked. Not going to get into a brand name war so since you already own this MH my advice would be tire pressure, leaf springs and the Michelin's. Lower the tire pressure in just the front. All 6 tires should NOT be the same pressure. It should be lower on the fronts. Have a good and reputable frame shop look at your leaf springs. Metal fatigues. Everyone always want to run to aftermarket items when all what is needed is new leaf springs. I went new leaf springs and added a leaf. I couldn't believe I was driving the same MH after I had that done! And you won't want to hear this part....... I put all new Michelin's on my MH before heading out full time. THE Biggest mistake I ever made. It CHANGED the handling. Fought for months trying to pinpoint the problem surely not thinking it would be my brand new $$$tires.:R It took an over the road truck driver to point out my problem. The outer rib on those tires are too aggressive for a heavy MH chassis and they move back and forth giving you a tire roll front end feeling. He took 2 fingers and easily moved that outer rib back and forth. Add the weight of the MH on that and you get the idea. Heavy semi's actually have a bald out rib to prevent tire roll. Solution to that problem? Take them off and replace the tires or wait years and miles for them to wear down. IMHO they need to STOP selling those tires for MH's. http://i58.tinypic.com/2cerlw2.jpg

RE: used class c motor homes under 11" tall

Hello to All.. New member here looking for used class c rv's under 11' tall.. At the present time I am height restricted to an overhead door that is 11' tall.. I am not a rv owner as of yet but have started the process to be an owner. You will find them under 11 foot but the ac unit on the top puts it over 12. I had a custom built garage made especially for my MH. And we DID measure to include the ac unit to clear the size door installed. Only thing was the concrete driveway up to the building........the incline of the concrete driveway put the MH on an angle going in and that increased the height of the front end ever so slightly where the ac unit was and my MH would NOT fit under the door. She never saw the inside of a building built especially for her. :( Soooooo, make SURE to check the incline into your building also along with making sure to measure the MH to the top of the ac unit.

RE: Multiple cats in travel trailer full time

Hoarders keep adding and adding animals or whatever, even when they cannot care for what they have. They do not provide appropriate care. Filthy living areas are a hallmark. Sick animals don't go to the vet. Dead animals get left to rot in a cupboard. They are often very secretive and won't let people into their homes or on their property. Having a bunch of animals is not hoarding. Having a bunch of sick dying animals not getting care is hoarding. Or a house piled to the rafters with trash that they identify as "treasures." I have to disagree with you on this 'stereo type' description of what a hoarder is. 35 years of rescue and 10 years being a humane officer I am here to tell you that that description is NOT the end all be all ONLY description of a hoarder. And actually thankfully, those are far and few except it is those that make the headline news purely for the shock value. If people got off the internet and watching only shock value news and get into the trenches of rescue they would see that not all hoarders fit into that stereo type description. It would be a discredit to those that watch and turn owners in for animal abuse to 'only' look and beware for owners of 'that' caliper and maybe miss a situation where animals need help. In filthy or clean environments, rich or poor, animals owned by 'hoarders' SUFFER period. The worst case of hoarding and animal abuse I was ever on the people lived in an $800,000 home and money up the wazoo.:( Just saying.

RE: What do you use to clean toilet bowl?

It is not that the cleaners are a problem with the holding tank. It's the fact that the RV toilet is made of PLASTIC. Which harsh chemicals can etch and permanently ruin the finish. Then the stains become embedded in the plastic never to come out!
rockhillmanor 07/09/14 07:14pm Beginning RVing
RE: What do you use to clean toilet bowl?

Clorox Clean-Up Spray - the 'original one' without all the new perfumes added. My toilet still had the sticker on it that said to use only Soft Scrub to clean the toilet and shower to prevent scratches on the plastic. I keep a bottle of that for the stubborn stains.

RE: Changing State of residence to Texas ???

We are thinking of changing our state of residence from Minnesota to Texas. Primarily because there is no State income tax in Texas. Who has done this & what was the process. We own Real Estate in Texas and currently spend 6 months in Texas. We will still have Real Estate in MN as well. Tips, suggestions, warnings, advice all appreciated. Drawbacks to being a Texas resident? Insurance issues? Drivers lic & registration process? Do we register the car we leave in MN in MN? THANKS Ron First of all you will have to pick one place as your domicile. Uncle Sam won't let you live in more than one place. And really do you homework on ALL the taxes within a state. If they don't have one tax or real low tax they DO make up for it in other areas. Like TN has real low property taxes etc, but their sales tax is 10%! http://taxes.about.com/od/statetaxes/a/Best-States-for-Retirees.htm http://taxes.about.com/od/statetaxes/a/tax-free-states.htm http://retirementliving.com/RLtaxes.html If you are close to retirement it is 'really' important to look at what the state you chose taxes for retirement income also.
