RE: Pad in your yard

I am going to be the voice against gravel. I bought my current house and original owners had gravel at side of house, next owners rented house out and gravel wasn't maintained. when I bought the house, had no TT and spent 3 years trying to get random loose gravel out of grass area on that side. My plan for my current TT is to get concrete pads approx 24" square and 4" thick from concrete company. I think they are used for mobile homes (but not sure). They are thicker than ones from box stores and won't break so easily, but can be easily set to level and easily removed if not wanted at house sale.

RE: extension cords and rain

I found that my TT plug and the end of the extension cord had signs of arcing (burn marks) after I had to use the extension cord when stopped for an overnight without unhooking. It rained on me driving into site, while setting up and all night as well as the next morning unhooking. the connection did appear to be quite wet that morning as I disconnected. Since that time I bought a SockitBox from Amazon. I have also seen people that make something similar out of plastic storage boxes of some type. For me, it was worth the cost, to have it already made. I use it for months at a time set up at the house. When I have checked it, everything inside has been COMPLETELY DRY. Sure makes me feel better.

RE: Mini sewing machine?

so do those of you that carry a machine, use it on the dinette table or do you have a different table on which to use it? Mine is currently mounted in an old treadle cabinet/table which is pretty heavy, but it is a comfortable height as opposed to sitting on kitchen table. Right now, I may go a few months without using it, and then I get in a sewing mood and may use it for hours 4-5 days a week for a month or more. I am planning to FT in a MH within a few years and can't imagine not taking it. Trying to figure out the best option for me.

RE: New to RVing, going to be full time travel nursing.

thank you for your service, and I think your skills should allow you to find positions that would provide you a site for some work. The only issue with that is what to do with your 3 year old if you were working. My thought is day-care/preschool to allow your child to socialize and develop people skills. Also you need to be thinking about what you plan to do about school, as that 3 yr old will be school age very soon. I think there will be some work to find and determine what positions to accept, that can provide the needs of the entire family. If you are willing to do the research on locations, this could be a very workable way of life.

RE: Roaming RVers July 8-10-2016 Pointes West, Appling GA

well guys I have put off deciding to the last minute, but I have decided to go to Raleigh and go to my granddaughter's birthday party. She is turning 3 and actually asked me if I wanted to come to her party. She also asked me to bring her "owl blanket" that she left here a little over a month ago, so how could I resist? Have fun. will be passing through the area on Wed night and again on Sunday around lunch.

RE: so is 29 ft the cutoff for not towing a toad ?

My parents had a 24ft class C and found the toad was a necessity. they went places that rentals weren't available.. when you are far from a city, even Enterprise who will pick you up won't generally come 70+ miles to pick you up. Also when we were touring Natchez MS, I can't imagine trying to drive the MH through the narrow tree lined streets and parking would have been impossible in some areas. That being said, my parents were in their 70's and 80's and not able to walk miles from places that we could have parked MH. Also while we were staying for 4 days, it was nice not to have to unhook. Even if I had carried a bike, I would not have been comfortable on 4 lane highway and bridge over MS River to get to tourist areas.

RE: Maiden Voyage

Enjoy your trip with your Dad... I sure miss boating with mine. I did go with he and Mom, and did most of the driving, planning for a 10 day trip in their MH when Dad was about 88. Talked about it until he died. Makes the memories so much sweeter, and helps me not remember the stresses during the trip.

RE: Andersen Levelers and the ReVo Leveler

I like the Anderson levelers and the only place I have struggled with them is hear at home. and that is because ground tends to be soft and they sink in then. Otherwise I have found with them and the level like BigBird has sure makes getting level easy, especially since I travel alone. I no longer have to get in and out of truck a dozen times to get level. As someone above said, less than 5 minutes and I am level all the way around.

RE: A few more mods and tweaks.....Farkles

that is impressive idea... the more I see that you have done, you need to come work on my trailer for a few days.

RE: More privacy in the Toy Hauler...A modification

I did something very similar... I have a wardrobe cabinet directly across from my bathroom door, so I put the curtain where you can access wardrobe and dress in the hallway. I used a shower curtain rod, so I didn't have to do any actual drilling or screwing type work. One of the best ideas ever... a little more room to dress without being exposed to living area.

RE: Mess at CW in Dothan, al

Tom, you might pass on to "the leadership team" that a number of us avoid places that have no parking. I recently tried to visit a dealership/shop to get some parts and probably would have shopped for the new RV I intend to buy within the next year or so. There was no parking anywhere on the lot, people were parking across the road and the closed auto dealership lot. I figured if they couldn't provide a place for me to park (and I was just in a pickup truck) then they didn't need my business. I didn't stop.

RE: ? 3M Command Hooks for Outside Use?

I've got a small one that has been on door window for months... and even with the sun hitting that door it is still there. That being said, I only hung a light weight door decoration on it, so no real stress on it.

RE: Morbid subject

here we have questions about flooding, and sinkholes. and several similar things but as I helped mom fill out her disclosure on her house about a month, it didn't ask about deaths.

RE: moving to Georgia

You can go to the specific counties and get the millage rates and the valuation. Mine in the county I live in is much lower than love2rvcamp. My TT which is a 2011 JayFlight 24RKS (don't remember the county value) has a tax bill of less than $150.

RE: Is there an affordable portable set on steps or deck

I am curious how cumbersome these are to put up and store. I saw the Sunrise listed it weighed 160lbs.. As an over 55, female with arthritis in some of my joints I can't imagine being able to set it up. Love the idea, for staying put for a longer time, but would love more info on setting them up and stowing for travel.

RE: oxygenics spa showerhead not for me

I love the increased pressure of the water that comes out of the Oxygenics. My original shower head didn't have real pressure.. I frequently have achey joints and love the extra pressure (similar to massager). That being said, bought one and put in my parents MH, and they hated it. Mom claimed the pressure was too much almost to the point of hurting. She also claimed she got the whole bathroom wet with it. In hers, I thought I had someone with a cup slowly pouring water on my head. I guess it is all what you want.

RE: leveling during overnight stops

so appreciate the many quick replies. I just could imagine having to get out and disconnect the toad, but have never used MH levelers. (My TT requires manual leveling and usually disconnecting from truck.) rgatijnet1, thanks for telling me the toad will move if it needs to. Didn't think about that, although it makes sense. As I said, far away from my realm of experience. I am trying to learn as much as I can in order to make the best decisions when I start spending lots of money on making this change.

leveling during overnight stops

I have been following Class A forum for a while, as I plan to move from my TT I love to a Class A in 2-3 years to travel fulltime for a while. I suddenly had a question that I have never seen addressed, and don't have a clue about. When you make an overnight stop and you have a four-wheel down toad, do you disconnect toad before you use auto-levelers? I have driven my parents Class C with 4wheel down toad and didn't disconnect, but they didn't have auto-levelers. Their class C was small and just leveled by parking as level as possible (and using blocks if needed). I am looking at a 34-38 ft Class A, so I imagine finding a level spot without having to use auto-levelers would be more difficult. since I will primarily by myself, I don't see doing much parking lot overnights, and wonder if I need to disconnect toad. Part of the appeal of the Class A is being able to stop and stay overnight without having to get out of vehicle and connect/disconnect if weather is bad or I am just too darn tired.

RE: Mulling over full-time RVing, with 2 cats

Qathe, A couple of things come to mind when I read your comments.. One... Do you really want to drive something that normally gets 8 1/2 miles per gallon in Atlanta Rush Hour traffic??... when you are moving so slowly you get gallons per mile Two.. You mention parking under an overhang; do you know how high the bottom of the overhang is? Most RV's are over 10ft high, and some are a good bit higher. Three.. there is no RV that is resistant to GA heat and humidity, without running AC constantly... You say you work for the Humane Society... ask the folks you work with about leaving any animal in a car during the summer.. They will be sending the county to take your cats from you, if they think you are leaving them in a tin box with no AC. You MUST have a power source for AC in the late spring through mid fall, if you are going to leave any living thing in an RV during the day.
