RE: OK, What's the trick to reserving on Reserve America?

FL in July? No thanks! Snowbirds are long gone. California northern coast for me! Highs in the mid-60s. :C

RE: OK, What's the trick to reserving on Reserve America?

It is in the morning, not midnight. The trick is to see what is available, look at the pictures and description and decide if it is for you. Have alternatives as well. As others have said it depends on the state. Colorado changes at midnight and if you want a popular site in some state parks you better be ready at midnight, not 12:01am. Can't believe they have us all acting like teenage girls trying to get tickets to a Justin Bieber concert. Something is just not right there. As a result, I just seldom even try to get in state parks.

RE: OK, What's the trick to reserving on Reserve America?

As a fulltimer, I seldom expect to be able to get a site on RA for any length of time. Seems to me locals go in and reserve up all the weekends for months in advance, so as I ramble around and decide where to go visit there is little available. It sure would be nice if they would reserve some sites as "weekly only," maybe combine that with first come, first serve. Anyway, the way I have tried to work the site in the past is look at the calendar view. There you can see open days on all the sites and maybe stitch together an extended stay, even though you have to move a time or two. I've made 3 reservations before for a single visit. Of course there was a fee for each online reservation. It would be more cost effective to look online, find the collection of sites and days that would work and then call the park directly to make it as one reservation.

RE: Tag Axel

Right, the tag axle is not optional equipment to be ordered - it is there to carry the additional weight of heavier coaches.

RE: Might be a bit overweight.. (sarcastic)

That brought a smile to me! Surprised I have never seen someone doing that when dead-heading. Cute.

RE: Washer & Dryer option worth it?

I think the value is mainly one of convenience. Sometimes the park laundry might not be available when you want to wash, then you have to watch the time and get back over there to move from washer to dryer, then again to get out of the dryer and hope there is a decent/clean place to fold. With the onboard units, it is much easier to work the chore into other things you want/need to do. If a full-timer or heavy traveler, I think it would be worth it, maybe not so much for weekend warriors. Didn't know they now have 240V dryers. I'd definitely go that way if I had the choice.

RE: Store manager yelled "Get the (sounds like duck) out of my p

Maybe RV owners need body cams. Would make for some interesting YouTube episodes perhaps! We could call them "Customer Service Cams."

RE: Does "free WiFi" ever work?

Not something you can depend on. Often frustratingly slow even for surfing when it works at all. I have satellite and broadband so seldom even try to log onto the park wifi. Normally just a big waste of my time.

RE: Lat Long

I had noticed an issue with GPS coordinates on rvparkreviews.com and submitted a support ticket. It sounds like they get the coordinates from wherever Google Maps thinks the address is. So it is likely the underlying map data that is incorrect. Good Sam probably does something similar - no one is actually looking at a map and capturing the coordinates. Instead their system probably calls a Google Maps function, gives it the address and it returns the coordinates of where the map data thinks that address is. Or not. :h For example, here is a web developer describing that very thing: http://atomiku.com/2012/12/get-gps-coordinates-from-google-api-with-php/

RE: HELP door latch broke

Yep, mine broke and Trimark was very helpful. If you can send them a photo it would help, and they will likely send you a spec diagram. Based on that I ordered, got what I needed, did a better job than Monaco at adjusting it and it has been better then new ever since. As a fulltimer on the road, probably one of the only things I have ever paid overnight delivery on!

RE: Bathroom Smell

Look under the sink your vacuum breaker might be bad.Does the toilet hold water in it? This it often the cause of such odors, and in fact coming from the grey tank. There is typically an "auto vent" near the sink, the lav(s) and washer area. Even if your rig is plumbed for a washer and does not have one, it may still have an auto vent in place for it. They do go bad over time and let air from the tank back into the RV. You can get them at any home improvement retailer. https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQ1n7Wx2rkPIeDWj-jwrY42hIxp0oQZ6j4kbuPivzI28IHModfg_Q

RE: Why is Crater Lake a must-see?

I plan on going later this year. Maybe I will have the place to myself if enough people think it is meh. Heck, the Grand Canyon is just a hole in the ground. What's the big deal? If it was really something, they'd have a Grand Canyon ride at DisneyWherever.

RE: Amana Conv/Micro Radarange

Sounds like the control board may have gone bad. Did you try unplugging it for a few minutes then plugging it back in? Sometimes that can "reset" them. We are about to replace our oven that is almost 10 years old. We are going with this Whirlpool WMH76719CS currently on a good sale at both Best Buy and Home Depot. At this post you can find the report from another RVer that recently installed it and enjoying it - reports that he has since seen it in new rigs.

RE: How to remove bottom step???

I've seen some people that have luck by leaving the step extended and driving around a bit! :B Sorry, couldn't resist!

RE: [OP Update] Windows 8.1 compared to Win7 - user experience

Another OP Update Continuing to fine-tune her Start Screen. Found a free program called OblyTile that helps make custom tiles. In the updated image below, the first set of tiles launch directly to some of her most used websites and I was pretty easily able to make some nice tiles using images from the internet. I made the tiles 270x270 pixels for the medium sized tiles. link to larger image http://www.tlkemp.com/images/StartScreen2_sm.jpg

RE: Silicon Valley Region Shop for Convection Oven Replacement?

Excellent! Glad you got what you wanted! For me, not interested in doing it myself, not interested in the same model I am replacing and AM interested in outside venting. Did some searching and Almaden RV Service in San Jose seems like a good candidate and for the most part has positive reviews.

Silicon Valley Region Shop for Convection Oven Replacement?

Class A full-timer currently in Monterey, CA about to head north on the 101. Needing to have the microwave/convection oven replaced, potentially adding outside venting. Curious if anyone has experience with RV shops between here and San Francisco you'd recommend for this potentially "invasive" project. Some mods may be required based on the way the new oven mounts and of course the venting means cutting a hole in the wall! :E Needless to say, not a job I'd want to trust to just anyone.

RE: [OP Update] Windows 8.1 compared to Win7 - user experience

That's the flexibility of Win8.1, being able to configure the tiles with just the ones you want to use. My desktop too is almost blank. I just group the tiles with the ones I use the most and remove the rest. You can also create tiles for the shortcuts to websites you use most often. Anything I needed to access from the start menu I created a tile. I agree that one of the current shortcomings is being able to edit the look of the tile instead of just the size. Excellent comment on putting tiles on the Start Screen to go directly to a website. I discovered that over the weekend and put a few on there for her - made a special named group for them. For example, being 82, one thing she likes to do every morning is check the local obituaries - see how she is stacking up. :W So, put on a tile for that. Also a couple to get directly to her credit union and Discover card accounts. For the desktop, I am thinking of using it just for putting shortcuts to files she might access frequently.
