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.

RE: Five days to launch!

How in the world will you be able to concentrate on the meeting? I find as I get closer and closer to time to pull out, I have a harder time concentrating at work. I want to be gone. and I like my job, just ready to get out and see the world. Have a great trip and share. I try to follow some folks as they make big trips to get ideas on how to make that big of a trip. I would love to be able to head out for the NE; like you I am a long ways away from Nova Scotia.

RE: Rear kitchens = porpoising?

I am on my second rear kitchen TT, only issues I have had were if I didn't pack things well. Actually the cabinet I have the biggest issues with is the one over the slide. I don't want to pack it too heavy, so I have to add paper towels to fill extra space. I do work to load my storage bays in front of trailer, so that I have sufficient tongue weight for easy towing. My grill, tool bag, outside table and chairs and I am good there.

RE: California Work Camping question

RV daytrader... that list is all consuming.. not everyone will do everything on the list... and some parks don't require cleaning bathrooms, etc.. GA has paid employees to clean bathrooms in most.. the host might stock extra supplies or notify park personnel if there was need to clean off schedule.. exterior cleaning only includes picking up trash from campsites, if someone leaves it when they leave site.

RE: Estate Sale Costs

thanks to everyone who commented... our plan is currently as follows.. Move Mom (in 3 weeks, yikes!!) Have mover lined up and scheduled. One week later, the last of the things family will take will be picked up (My children have to come from out of state around school and work schedules). during that week and weekend, we will work to get additional things to MOM as she determines she needs them. Release house to estate sale guy.. He said it would take approx 3 weeks for his crew to clear house, attic, sheds etc and prep for estate sale. List house with realtor approx 1 week before sale.. to take advantage of estate sale advertising. Hopefully by Memorial Day, I will be in RV somewhere hiding from the world and chaos of this adventure.

RE: prep or orientation fees

when I bought my current TT and traded in 10 yr old smaller TT, I negotiated based on "out the door" price... I really didn't care how he reported it on paper.. just how much money I needed to give him (and ask the bank for).. bank officer actually commented that sales price and amount of money I was asking for was significantly lower than NADA value.

Estate Sale Costs

Not fulltiming yet, but currently helping my mom downsize from 3 bdrm house that she has been in over 50 years to a small 1 bedroom apt. Many folks on here have suggested estate sales to ease the downsizing. I know of only one person in my mom's hometown who handles complete estate sales. He has told us, we will rent dumpster, he will clean out, sort, price and sale everything.. for 30% of proceeds.. does this sound like a reasonable rate? I am planning to use this as a preview of my own downsizing to full=time in about 3 years. I will know what I am doing hopefully at that time. Also any suggestions on helping mom, go through the things she needs to, without getting too wrapped around the history of every item in the house? Or will having history of things make sales easier? How much "help" do the estate sale folks really need?
