RE: Question on using "Great Stuff" foam sealant

I bought some that was supposed to be somewhat flexible.. as I was scared of it expanding too much around the water pipes in floor. It may have been the window and door kind. I just read cans carefully before I bought. Yes I spent a good 30 minutes buying a $5 item.

compressor or tire inflator

planning for fulltime in Class A in approximately 1 year. Currently have PU and TT. Should I buy a small compressor or a tire inflator? Edited to add I am NOT considering a 12V inflator. Only a 120V, as I know the weaknesses of a 12V. I have had a tire inflator for a number of years to keep the air in truck and trailer inflated correctly. It is dying (smelled burning electrical last two times I used). I have never used a compressor (except for tire inflation). I know they have lots of uses, but I really don't know if all compressors will do all sorts of thing. I can do some repairs and upgrades, but am restricted by arthritis and a tremor for some issues. I also would rather pay a professional if it is outside my comfort level. Trying to plan to buy best tool to carry forward into my full time life style. Please give me some pros and cons for the various types and assistance in what to buy next

RE: Cape Cod Canal positions..

I was told that these jobs can't be done by a single person, as you must man the office/gate continuously along with doing a couple of park checks at the same time. Is this always true? or just for this park? or the viewpoint of the person who told me? (FYI, lady was amazed/shocked/surprised that I travelled by myself -- when my Mom showed up later in the day to visit-- she asked Mom did I really travel by myself.. Mom told her YES, and she's not afraid of a D*** thing!)

RE: Need lid for propane tanks

you can buy those weird screw type latches too.. Somehow I end up with mine not secured and lose them. I do put my cover so hinge is on front and latch on back. it helps keep the lid on when I forget to latch it closed.

Roaming RVers Feb Rally

Our first trip of 2018 is scheduled for Feb 2-4 at Reed Bingham State Park. Make your reservations quickly as Reed Bingham is a small park. Reed Bingham is going to all site specific reservations starting in January. Loop 2 (the premium sites) have full hookups with sewer and cable. Loop 1 sites do not have sewer, but can be chosen and reserved by site. I spoke to someone in park earlier in the week, and she said that to reserve a site that the web doesn't allow you to choose, you can call Reservations at 800-864-7275 and they can reserve the specific site. She said Reserve America does not have all parks converted yet, but that almost all the state parks are going to site specific over the next couple of months. Don't know a theme yet, but I will make a big pot of chili for Sat night.

RE: Roaming RVers rally schedule for 2017

Hi All, I am not going to make it to Christmas Party. Since the group tends to head South in Feb and March, I will host one or both of those months. (however, if I host March, we need to move the weekend either forward or back a week to coincide with my day off, please). Several suggestions, and the group can choose. Cottonhill COE park.. south Chattahoochee River near FT Gaines, Ga and dam with locks.. it is similar in feel to COE parks like Whitetail Ridge. Florida Caverns State Park.. I know the group has planned and made trips here before. Kolomoki Mounds State Park.. Blakely, GA South West Georgia.. typical small state park.. small lake... and Native Peoples mounds open to tour with museum. Reed Bingham State Park.. Adel, GA.. South GA just of I75 (less than 5 miles). typical state park.. nice hiking trails, small lake.. Museum of Agriculture and Historic Village (primarily late 1800's) is nearby these are all parks that I have been to so am comfortable recommending. If someone has another park in South Ga like Crooked Crooked River at St Mary's that they want to try, I am willing to host there too. I have always wanted to go there.

RE: How to rig a rain tarp without trees -- poles, maybe??

Maybe you could use one the portable garage canopies.. bigger than traditional canopy, but doesnt' take much longer to put up. I bought one for Mom on sale for under a hundred. this is the one I bought, but you can get larger ones too. I have seen several scout troops use one of these when camping, especially for a week or more camp.

RE: Roaming Rvers November Rally at Don Carter State Park

Excited to be camping again. Haven't been since July.. Also excited because my dear friend from Southern VA is going to come down and stay with me for the weekend. She and I have known each other since we started high school but usually only get to see each other once or twice a year. Trying to decide on food and curious how many of us actually are going to be there. Will post food list within the next couple of days.

RE: Veggies in sealed mason jars

Why don't you just use the jar sealer that you can get with vacuum sealer? I would think spending $8-$10 for one would be much easier and would work better than trying to put holes and using tape over hole. Can't say about salad fixings, but I do use the jar sealer with regular lids to keep things like crackers less susceptible to our humidity here in the south.

weight distribution hitch?

my brother is looking at buying smaller single axle TT. Only 18 ft total length, and 3200 gross weight. He knows he will have to add a brake controller to his F150, but will he need to use WD type hitch? I have no experience with smaller/lighter TT.

RE: Roaming Rvers November Rally at Don Carter State Park

Made my reservation.. Thursday-Sunday. planning to do a little genealogy side trip. My dad's father was born in the area, his granddad built a grist mill in the 1830's in the area, so several generations lived nearby

RE: cookware and dishes

Anyone using Pyrex should do a search on "exploding Pyrex". The company changed the type of glass they use and newer ones can explode when removed from the oven. Beemerphile1, I don't have to worry about that. Some of my Pyrex is almost as old as I am. LOL. My Dad worked for hardware company and was always bringing home pieces of sets from damaged sets. When I moved away from home, I got a good start and then I got a more from my grandparents home and then my mom's when she downsized. So other than a couple of pieces that are 25-30 years old, the rest are actually antiques now. Made when Pyrex advertised you could take from freezer directly to hot oven and the reverse.

RE: Military Campgrounds

Concord 05, not an answer to your question because I don't know, but a separate question. Were you really at Ft Bragg? Ft Benning in GA has a Uchee Creek that the campground is main post. I cross Uchee Creek else where on base, everytime I go visit my mom. I was just wondering if there is a creek by the same name at Ft Bragg (500 miles away)

cookware and dishes

I have a slight obsession with good cookware and dishes. I see lots of folks use Corelle in their RV, but I haven't seen comments on pots/pans and bowls. I plan to carry decent pans (I hate cheap ones), but wonder if anyone carries old fashioned Corning Ware and Pyrex Ware. I use my Corning an Pyrex almost every day and can't imagine cooking without it. Does anyone carry Corning/Pyrex and is there some special hints to keep it safe while traveling?

RE: Ocean Lakes Family Campground - HOLY GOLF CARTS!!!!!!

Stayed at MB State Park last week and there were plenty of golf carts there too, but most I saw were very aware of folks walking/riding bikes in campground. As my daughter said, since MB is known as big golfing area, it makes sense that golf carts are a big thing there. Her in-laws bought condo/timeshare there for the golfing opportunities.

RE: Dog House (Engine Hump) Cup Holder & Organizer

I put a pedestal mount on mine and use a small table while driving. When we camp we put a larger table on top of that one and it is supported on the dash as well as the table. It seats 3 with a folding chair and is much larger than the factory table. My dinette got taken out and replaced with real furniture. The old top got cut up and used as end tables. Very happy with this set up. I can only partially visualize this... Can you post a picture?
