RE: Toll Road Speed Limit

I grew up in NJ and this was the case 49 years ago when I learned how to drive. It has always been common knowledge. We used to get on the TP and drive as fast as we could and then stop for a lunch break at a rest stop restaurant before exiting. I rather drive slower than have an overpriced unpalatable meal at an oasis.

RE: Where do you stay between sites?

Check to see if you can stay an extra night or if you can arrive a day early. If neither of those work there's always Walmart, Cracker Barrel, or http://www.rvparkreviews.com/

RE: Windows 7 Update issue - KB 3004394

While there were updates for Silverlight included in this months cycle KB 3004394 was a root certificate update according to the link in my original post. MS removed KB 3004394 and issued KB 3024777 to remove the first had you installed it. Contrary to the initial recommendation by MS to uninstall KB 3004394 they instead now say to use KB 3024777. If you did not install the 4394 update before MS removed it or you uninstalled it you will not see KB 3024777. I elected to restore my system from a image I always make prior to the MS updates for just this reason. I have turned MS Updates off as they seem to be having some pretty serious issues considering this update cycle and the one that screwed things up in recent months. KB 3004394 was installed or I should say I allowed it to be installed 12/10/14 as I prefer only notice of updates because of limits on data use. I had no noticeable difference in machine performance after the update. On 12/12/14 I received and installed KB 3034777 still don't see any problems. Life goes on, no harm no foul.

RE: Windows 7 Update issue - KB 3004394

RE: How Do You fill LP Tanks?

It is illegal to transport propane tanks in your truck or car unless you are a licensed transporter. Yup many do it. They just haven't been caught and ticketed. And the fine is huge. Not true statement. Reason----definition of “consumer commodity” which means a material that is packaged and distributed in a form intended or suitable for sale through retail sales agencies or instrumentalities for consumption by individuals for purposes of personal care or household use. When you purchase your propane cylinder for your barbeque, trailer, etc. the propane and its cylinder become a consumer commodity for your personal consumption for household use and the transportation of the propane cylinder to your home is not in commerce since that transportation does not affect intrastate trade or traffic in furtherance of a commercial enterprise or business Thanks for the straight dope! I was just thinking how much the government could rake in just sitting out side every big box hardware, convenience store, gas station, or walmart, nailing every weekend chef exchanging their barbecue tanks.

RE: pedestal receptacle

Those campground receptacles get more use in a season than your electric range or dryer outlets get in there lifetime.

RE: Which brand & model of walkie talkies for my "spotter?"

RE: Which brand & model of walkie talkies for my "spotter?"

We use cobra's there 10 years old and rechargeable, the batteries don't hold a charge as well anymore and need to be replaced but they are 10 years old. They also pickup NOAA weather reports.

RE: Grey Tank Flushing?

I put some dish detergent, a little "Gain" and a couple of gallons of water in my gray tanks when I move. I do the black tank as well. I figure a couple of hours of sloshing while going down the highway helps clean them up. Works for me X2. If it's a short trip I'll add more water since fuel mileage is less of an issue. +3 I pour a 1/4 of Dawn and run the hot water till it cools then drive we're fulltime so 5hrs of sloshing does a good job of mixing it up. I hit the dump station at our next stop or hookup and dump with flush king either way a good deal of junk flows out.

RE: How to keep stale air smell in house at bay?

When we left the house for long term trips I oiled the P traps to prevent evaporation and opened solid citrus air fresheners in all the rooms and had an room ionizer air cleaner on a timer to run 12 hrs a day. It was rated for a 20x20 room but worked well in 1100 foot home. Never any odors when we returned.

RE: Anyone Else Long-Range Planning to Go Fulltime?

I started thinking about it last century, okay 1999. Retired 2010. I learned much just from this and other Forums. There is much good information and a lot of not so good. It's your job to figure what is best for your situation, what is pure BS, what applies to weekenders, what applies to fulltime. So many choices are personal, MH Class A,B,C, 5 wheel, trailer. Do you want to or need to workcamp? Would you want to volunteer? Do you want a homebase? How much does it cost, how much do you have.

My suggestion, pull through sites.

RE: Campground costs

During the last 4 1/2 years we have averaged less than $2.00 per night in campground fees. We Volunteer. Two summers we had a site overlooking the Pacific ocean, cost 20 hrs per person per wk as interpretive hosts. Two winters in South Florida learning about the Everglades and myself doing maintenance and the wife developing and giving a guided tour for the physically challenged on an 8 passenger golf cart, 24hrs per person. We did public use counts by kayak and Visitor center service, again 24 hrs per person per week. Last summer we started and ran a kayak program for seniors and another for family's with a little maintenance to fill out our 24 hrs. Next summer we're headed to Alaska, the hours requirement is a little more 32, but we think it's worth it to spend 10 weeks volunteering as the work is always enjoyable and educational. What we find is that staying awhile at one location allows us to really get to know the area and working with locals we get the history and the really good places to explore. Our shortest volunteer position has been 6 weeks our longest 7 months.

RE: Zephyrhills insight?

I haven't stayed at any of the RV parks but DW's DD lived in Zephyrhills till this past August. The WalMart is on the north end of town also a Sweetbay grocery and a Publix are along that commercial strip. It's a nice town that welcomes snowbirds, I believe the population triples in winter. They seem to have some activity every weekend during the season. The restaurants all have decent prices and good food.

RE: Where are you all ?

If we had been headed to Florida this year we would have been there in mid October as it is we're playing at Santa's helpers at Amazon in Kansas then down to Texas.

RE: Snakes On An RV?

We had a red rat snake up in the running gear down in Florida and a black racer hanging around in WV. DW likes them around as long as not venomous she thinks they keep vermin away.
