When my kids were young the middle child - who shall not be named- (Jeff :) ) packed a black snake into the house .
His mother screamed,he dropped the snake,which promptly went down a floor vent (concrete slab construction ).
I simply shut off all the vents but the one it went down, turned the furnace as high as it would go, opened the windows so we wouldn't die from the heat ( it was summer) and waited.
In just a few minutes after the furnace got hot out came the snake.
High fives to the son, dinner out for the mom.
Good Luck, Mike
Many years ago my uncle and his family stayed at my parents beach house. My cousin had brought her snake, and it got lost that week. The next week some people were renting the house - the wife found it when she tried to pull the shower curtain back and it wouldn't move - the snake was wrapped around the rod. Later that summer my cousin stayed there again, and snake got lost again. Next renters were making toast one morning and the house filled up with a horrible smell. The snake had crawled into the toaster.
I got one of these electric dolly. My trailer is only about 6K, but this does a good job. Sometimes it's hard to get going when the trailer has sat in grass for awhile - but if I just hook up the TV and move it a foot, then this can pull (or push) it through the grass (boat also). I would look into the front mounted hitch if you could, though - these are pricey.
Last time I had a fraud attempt on my accout it was at a natl bank. It was attmpted at a branch 1500 miles away. Closed that account. No more natl banks for me. Local and on line.
Online is the problem, not whether the bank is local or not. I had my local account compromised through online once.
my husband and I will start traveling full time, in a 17 foot t@b ttravel trailer. I enjoy my high heel shoes purses accessories etc, I am wondering how I'm supposed to stay attractive when I will be in the forest, riding a bike, hiking, in tennis shoes and shorts most of the time. I have been camping many many times and most of the time I had dirty feet messed up hair dirty fingernails, less attractive quite often. I am concerned my husband wont find me attractive when all he he everyday is the shorts t-shirt bandana and tennis shoes. Advise ladies or gents? Thanks
A woman in high heels, purses, accessories, etc., is nowhere near as attractive as one in shorts, t-shirt, bandana, etc.
Lantley, you are right for sure as to defining what time do they have to leave. So what is the big deal about staying overnight (for $15) when they can be part of the group and stay for $5 for 24 hours. That is the logic I don't get.
It is not $5 for 24 hours, unless the entire reservation is only 1 day. If you make a reservation for 5 days, and you have 3 adults, that is one more than two, so you are charged an extra $25 ($5 per day). If you have another adult show up sometime during that time frame and they decide to stay overnight, that us $15.
To avoid being overnighters they would have to leave by quiet time (now that one is an assumption on my part).
Pretty much many of you are correct. I paid the price. it was clearly stated. The owners DO have a right to charge whatever they want, and I'm free to go somewhere else. I just felt that it was an exorbitant fee. I would have been happy to pay,say,$5 per person. I guess that I'm gettin' crabby since I turned 63. But, still, I'll never go back there specially since a brand new campground is being built as we speak ,just up the road from Ledgeview. Maybe with more competition rates might go down.
This time, be sure up front what the new park may charge - might be more than what this other did.
Seems clear to me - if you register and have more than 2 adults, then you are charged the $5 per extra per night for the entire visit. If you spring overnight guests during a portion of your visit, you are charged $15 per extra per night they are there.
As for not using facilities, when I stay at a hotel, there is a hair dryer, iron, coffee maker, telephone, HBO, wi-fi, complimentary breakfast, shampoo, conditioner, soap, box of tissues, 2 rolls of toilet paper, more towels than I need, alarm clock, etc. - can I make a checklist of all these things and get a discount if I don't use some of them?
Christmases here can vary - I remember in 1981 the high was 77 degrees, in 1982 the high was 27 degrees (the 50 degree difference always sticks in my mind). In 1989 the high was 17, and a foot of snow on the ground. Normally it is about 55-65 for high, 35-45 for low.
I think the main thing is to walk around the trailer at least once.
TV antenna down, all storage bins latched, roof vents closed are things that are easily missed.
Twice I've chased fifth wheels down because they left tv antenna up.
I got the AC10 from Power Mover. The path to my backyard is narrow between the house and the fence. While it is possible to back my trailer in, this has eliminated me having to rely on the wife to help direct, thus resulting in less arguments. Also, I am able to also put the boat in the backyard next to the camper - that would be impossible to do with just the TV. I used to have to pull the boat to the street and unhitch, then pull the trailer to the street and unhitch, then hitch up the boat and put it back in the side yard, then hitch up the trailer again before we could go on a trip. When we got home, I would have to do all this in reverse.
I forgot this fact: Back in August of this year we were staying in Auburn CA for a week. On the last day there my wife broke her foot so I went to the Office and told them she broke her foot and we needed to extend our stay another 2 days and they said sorry we are booked solid and you have to move. They did offer to let me dry camp but since it was over 100 each day and with no generator that wasn't going to be possible. Luckily for us we had good friends in the area who let us park in their driveway and furnished us with electric and water.
I don't understand what message you are trying to convey here - are you saying that should make for a negative review?
The OP in question has been around for awhile, and mostly tame, but he does inflame sometimes. He was the one that started the thread asking why anybody would ever need a power jack unless they were disabled.
In July i went up the Green River Gorge on I-26 in North Carolina it's a 7% Grade. Coming from South Carolina. I was doing 3000 RPM at 40 MPH in the right side truck lane. My truck is a 2002 Dodge Ram with a 5.9 Liter, V8, 2WD Magnum Gasser engine . The Camper i was pulling was 3,925 lb.( NADA Guides) 1986 Prowler, 25 ft. Does 3000 RPM at 40 MPH sound about right ??
I bet that weighs a lot more than you think. NADA is getting it's weights from the original manufacturer's specs, which is the bare bones weight, not including any options (A/C, Microwave, etc.). I went up that same grade twice in July with mine (see sig), which is in the 6500-7000 range. Yukon dropped to 2nd gear and screamed at 4500 RPMs but held 58 MPH all they way up.
I don't see the lights I bought listed from my seller at the moment but here is a link to the same thing:
It works out to just over $2/bulb shipped from Hong Kong. They come with three different adapters, none of which were what I needed, so I cut the wires off the adapters and soldered them into my fixtures. So now I can plug in LED panes or also unplug them and reinstall the factory incandescent bulbs. The attach to your existing fixture with double sided tape. The light is pretty much the same color and brightness as the factory bulbs. I notice no difference worth noting. Plenty bright and normal looking light, not a harsh blue. They have no voltage regulator. The LED's you see at camping world for $20/bulb contain a voltage regulator. Do a search here and you will find lots of posts on how this voltage regulator causes all sorts of radio and TV interference. I installed mine in April and have over (40) nights on them so far (22 lights in total). (7) of these nights have been off grid, the rest plugged into shore power. Even if a few did fail, half of them would have to before you equaled the cost of one Camping World LED. I have not taken my own measurements but have been told that having every LED light on in the camper (and who does that?) is close to the equivelent of just one incandescent bulb in terms of amp draw.
I got the same ones. They are bright enough that each fixture that had 2 incandescent now only have one of these.
And what would we think if it just fell over on it`s own in the next year? maybe on top of a kid!
Yep, and the parents would've sued the park for not being safe. And we the taxpayers would be the ones paying for it.
Just about a month ago people were upset when a whole family died in a rock slide.
