RE: Walmart....."NO......"

Always have seen a bunch of rigs parked (camping) at our local Walmart. Apparently, RVers wore out their welcome. Mobile meth labs.

RE: New Breakfast Ideas Needed for 2018 RV'ing season!

This is another one of my all time favorites to impress my CG friends. Fast and easy too. :C https://i.imgur.com/Fgnf1mxm.jpg Slice different colored bell peppers, drop egg inside and fry. Right before egg is done put just a few small drops of water in pan and immediately cover for a just a minute. That will cook the tops of eggs for those that want their eggs more done.

RE: New Breakfast Ideas Needed for 2018 RV'ing season!

Zip Lock Omelet. Couple of eggs, whatever kind of cooked meat you want, some fresh veggies (don't use fresh mushrooms!) and some cheese. All go into a gallon size ziplock bag (use a good quality!). Moosh them all together in the bag, then squeeze all the air out that you can. Into rolling boiling water for 13 minutes, then fish out with tongs. Now before anyone even starts - Ziploc says their bags are BPA free and have no dioxin in the manufacturing process. Would I eat one of these every morning? No. But for a camping breakfast once in a while, I'm good with it. This is also a great thing to do with the kids.! :C Every time I set this up for the kids in the CG they just go wild being able to make their very own omelet. I set up a line of bowls with all the different items to put in the omelet for them to choose from. They get to mix up whatever ingredients they want to put in the omelet and 'cook it all by themselves'. I find it really interesting that a kid that won't eat veggies at home you will find them putting it in their baggie omelet. I have them put a number on the outside of the baggie with a very slim waterproof marker. Eliminates any confusion which omelet bag belongs to who! BTW: I do have an adult standing close by the boiling pot of water just for safety. But the kids cook it all by their selves.

RE: Snow load.

Here is a quick rule of thumb to help you if you are concerned. Basic calculation – (for a quick analysis only) This calculation is based on a 25% moisture density which may be conservative for our current snow fall. As a rule of thumb, saturated snow weighs approximately 20 pounds per cubic foot. Calculation: S x 1.25 = P where: S = Inches of snow on the roof (depth) 1.25 = Weight of 1 sq ft of snow for each 1-inch of depth P = Pounds per square foot (lbs/sq ft) Example: If the snow on my roof is 20-inches deep, what would that equate to? 20-inch roof snow depth x 1.25 lbs/sq ft = 25 lbs per sq ft of roof snow load Source: >Should I shovel the snow off my roof? - CDA Building Department building.cdaid.org/images/Handouts/Shovel%20Roof%20Snow.pdf lol. They said if you really want to know quickly just cut out one square foot of the snow and weigh it! :B pdf is a real eye opener on weight of snow, good read.

RE: New Breakfast Ideas Needed for 2018 RV'ing season!

STUFFED FRENCH TOAST Take a sausage patty and flatten with a rolling pin until approximately 4" width. Quickly brown on both sides, set aside. Place 2 slices bread down and put a thin slice of cheese on each bread. Add sausage to one side and cover with other cheese/bread slice, cheese side in. Dip bread into egg wash and fry like you would regular french toast. The cheese will melt and hold the two slices together. Serve with confectioners sugar and/or syrup. I have also used bacon for this, but ham should also work. Oh My! :B You had me hooked with the confectioners sugar and/or syrup on it!

RE: Survey -How many unhappy with where they stayed this year?

Regarding CG's. You can have 10 RV'ers pull into the same CG and you will have 10 different reviews of the CG. With a motel all you want is a clean bed and bathroom for the night CG's all vary with amenities, layout, ambiance, etc. Each and every RV'er has their own needs and wants and what they like and what they don't like. Here is what I do. Actually 'after' my first newbie trip as a Snowbird. I would never book extended stays at a CG I have never seen period. Before you go back home or your extended stay time is up...... Allow an extra week before you head home. Look up different CG's in the area you want to stay at next time and go and stay one night or two there and get the feel of the CG. Then find another one and stay a night to see what it's like till you find one you really like. That way when you book your next trip south you won't be going in blind. There are SO many CG's down here I think the average RV'er misses out on a ton of great, spacious with trees, nice CG's And honestly? I have never reserved a CG for the winter in Florida. Albeit I also refuse to stay at popular sardine packed parking CG's though, no matter where it is at or what it offers. All CG's almost 'always' have a couple of spots saved for RV travelers to stop in for the night. Everyone I have pulled into for the night to see the CG has ultimately had a cancellation and since I am already in their CG I get the spot! I might stay one month or two and then move on to another one. Great CG options in Florida are endless -- versus just looking up a popular site on line and booking it. And by God the state of Florida is huge! The sun doesn't only shine in the far south, expand your horizons!!:W:C http://i53.tinypic.com/25thr7r.gif

New Breakfast Ideas Needed for 2018 RV'ing season!

~ Spring RV'ing is right around the corner! ~ We need some new breakfast ideas.http://i48.tinypic.com/35jf3mt.gif This is the first one I am going to try. https://i.imgur.com/dVJ2D3Al.jpg Only I am going to use finely chopped fried bacon instead of bread crumbs to cover it! :B Scotch Eggs Ingredients Serves: 6 400g (14 oz) sausage meat 6 hard boiled eggs 7 tablespoons fine dried breadcrumbs 1 egg, beaten Method Prep:15min › Cook:25min › Ready in:40min Divide sausage into 6 equal portions. On a lightly breadcrumb-sprinkled surface, pat out each portion to about .25cm (1/8 in) thickness. Wrap portions completely around each of the hard boiled eggs, pressing edges together to seal. Dip sausage-coated eggs in beaten egg, then roll in breadcrumbs. Place on baking tray and bake in preheated 190 C / Gas mark 5 oven until lightly browned, about 25 minutes. Tip: To prevent the eggs from rolling around on the baking tray, stick cocktail sticks through the eggs at an angle pointing downwards.

RE: ROOF/WALL REPAIR

I have a 94 prowler travel trailer when I purchased it the back corner above bunk had been repaired(vinyl patches laid) now inside above bunk the ceiling is sagging,also where the awning bolts into wall is loose I believe the roof and top of wall are rotten. Anyone know what cost maybe to replace entire roof and wall? Fix the awning bolts asap I had a storm pull my awning. It loosened the bolts on the bottom of the awning arms where it attaches to the side of the RV. I was not aware this had happened until the carpet in the bathroom kept getting all wet. I thought it was water line leaking related, not. Those bolts are attached to the edge of the floor of the MH. When those bolts are loose when it rains all the water runs down the side of the RV and right into the wood of the floor and gets sucked up into your entire floor. Fix those loose bolts ASAP. Because that wood is particle board once its wet the bolts won't stay in. I had to have repair but a metal plate in the inside so the bolts would stay in. The cost to repair roof and walls is very expensive if you have to hire someone to do it. If you are handy, go to the DIY forum here and you will find pictures, tips, and how to do it from fellow members that have tackled the job themselves rehabbing an RV. https://forums.goodsamclub.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/listings/forum/16537088 Good Luck hope it all works out for you.

RE: Overdrive lockout on ford e450

Just push the button located at the end of the gearshift selector. Little light comes on says "off".(Overdrive is now turned off) Why you would want to do this permanently...I don't understand. On a flat road, take advantage of the lower RPMs, especially in CruseControl. Yup! that's what the tow mode button is for! :B Push a button and overdrive is off.

RE: What the heck?

I figured out what sends me to the black hole of "prove you are not a robot captcha wack a mole" When ever I include a 'clickable' link to a website within my post I automatically get sent to captcha. What I do now is just copy and past the link to websites in my posts but I do NOT make it a clicky. No more captcha. Forum members will now have to copy and past my links! :B

RE: Snow load.

Just use your RV telescoping wash brush. Sturdy enough to push load of snow and 'safe', will not scrape roof/seals. The telescoping handle is more long enough to reach across the roof. My RV wash brush took snow off my MH from all the Wisconsin snow storms for years!!

RE: No comment necessary

Partly cloudy and crowded Florida is a big state. Not everywhere is crowed. I found the best kept secret where. AND it's beautiful with all the springs and real woods with real trees. AND something you will not get down south...a constant breeze all year long. :W X2. Our favorite FL destination has lots of open spaces, lakes, forests and a wide site! Also keeping it a secret! Yeah, we're in that less crowded, more woods, springs, rivers, etc. area of Florida too. Had to drive down to Tampa area last week and couldn't wait to get back to the "Old Florida". :B

RE: Snow load.

It's not so much the load as it is to the melting snow underneath when it melts during the day underneath the load of snow and then refreezes at night. You don't see it put it does happen from the heat of the sun no matter how cold it is. This causes ice dams 'under the snow' that will rip apart all of your seals around everything that is on your roof. Including the roof seals it self. When I was up in Wisconsin I brushed the snow off everyday. Note: Don't brush over your decals....I did. :( Come spring I saw what I did. The decals are brittle in the cold. When I brushed the snow off them, even though it was with one of those soft extension brushes for washing RV's.....I broke all the edges.

RE: Covers for Lawn Chairs on RV Ladder Carrier

After trying many different types of covers I 'finally' found what works. A portable motorcycle cover. You can find them at walmart. It's a light weight material AND it comes in a real nice blue and white color that you won't be embarrassed to have hanging on the back of your RV! And it fits the reclining chairs perfectly. You can buy more expensive ones in different colors and materials also just google motorcycle covers. This is the one I bought. It folds up real small and flat for rv bay storage. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Motorcycle-Cover/16817257 FYI I don't make my links clicky anymore. I found that is what sends me to prove I am not a robot captcha wack a mole.

RE: Need To Know Stuff....

Rookie RVer :C here! There are a lot of “need to know” stuff that would be useful to a Rookie like me. For example, I recently found out when using the stove to ALWAYS, ALWAYS have a window open and the hood fan on. This example would fall under safety “need to know” stuff. Where can I find “need to know” but not just limited to safety? I’m thinking quick tips, don’t forget to, here’s what I do, etc.? Or is this too broad of a question? Are you talking about the smoke detector going off all the time? If so to this day no matter what RV I had.....when making toast the alarm always go off. Most RV's have the smoke detector right across from the sink/stove area. Put that will low ceilings (much lower than your house) the alarm does go off. Some people put a shower cap over the smoke detector when they are cooking AND STANDING right there. Find a colored one so that it catches your eye so as not to forget to remove it when done cooking.

On the side of some RV's there is a vent above where the stove is inside to allow exhausting of the stove. Check to see if the flap on the vent is working. I found out on my first used RV the previous owners had put a piece of foam in the vent to prevent it from hearing it flapping while driving. :R

RE: RV Club membership

When I first started out as a full timer I joined 'all' of them. And found that 'none' of them offered any real benefits. Good Sam - 70% of the GS C's I stopped at said they no longer offered GS discounts yet the GS sign was still out front. Good Sam - Then there was the GS CG's that claimed the discount was already in the posted rate. :R And you will NEVER EVER be able to stop all their junk mail until you die...and then I suspect it will still keep coming. Passport America - Every CG I was near had restrictions up the wazoo. Had to be the second Monday of the month, the forth Wednesday of the month or when the moon was in the rising phase etc. and NEVER during any holiday, to get the discount. I couldn't fathom a weekend RV'er ever benefiting from all their restrictions. Unless you like staying a Tuesday and Wednesday anywhere Escapee's - Good for the full timer that needs a domicle. But as far as discounts go they have but a couple of their CG's across the US and many are resorts at high CG rates. Certainly not worth it to the weekend RV'er. Never renewed any of them. Threw out the woodalls book too. I get to a town I want to stay over night at and google the CG's in the area. Over the years I have always found wonderful CG's at great rates this way and over half of them where not listed on any 'official RV site'. :C

RE: Salton Sea

I watched the full version PBS documentary on TV on the salton sea from its beginnings of a nightclub/Vegas style famous people destination. And then the demise of it all. Including sadly, videos of thousands of birds dead, waves and waves of dead fish and up to now the stench that still lingers. And NO one gov agency will clean it up. They just left it that way. Welcome to America's little 3rd world country...Salton sea. And yes there are people living there with no clean water etc. There is fresh clean water all around the Salton Sea. I've been there and used it. Those in the slabs have fresh water available to them in Niland. Those living around the Salton Sea are there because the want to be. Some want to drop out of society, some go there to recover from job loss, some, like me, go there to relax and visit with a different kind society. Please don't change the Salton Sea. It serves a purpose. RICHARD There are 2 distinct areas of the Salton sea. I'm sure there are no signs directing anyone to where it still looks like the aftermath where there 'are' people living in squander.
