RE: How old is TOO old??

Just changed insurance companies and the new company has a discount for seniors who can show evidence of a recent "drivers class". Wonder if you looked into one of those classes, it would help set your mind at ease regarding your driving skills. We took one of those classes several years ago for a discount. The instructor was about 78 and forgot to come to class on the 2nd day of the class. He lived about 25 miles out of town so we all had a good time talking while we waited for him to show up after we called him. "The old know what it's like to be young. The young don't know what it is like to be old."

RE: Do you have trouble with slides

I have a bedroom slide on the passenger side and a couch/dining table slide on the drivers slide on my bath and a half 36 foot coach. One of the things we really like is the fact that we can use the bathroom with both slides closed and actually the whole coach with both slides closed if need be. There are times at a very few campgrounds where you can't open one slide or the other so it's nice to have some flexibility in your slide extending options. Also toppers on a slide are really nice in hot climates, they make a big difference on the inside temperatures. Our bedroom Power Gear slide mechanism broke a tooth off of the drive gear and was fairly simple to repair as it is located under our lift-up bed mattress. I have seen problems reported with kitchen slides, usually with the flexible drain system but they are usually quickly resolved.

RE: 30 AMP Quit? Source or not?

What park are you in? I know two parks that have electrical problems.

RE: Tire Rotation

I never rotate my tires on my motorhome. Not recommended.

RE: Winshield protection ClearPlex - Anyone tried it?

I looked at their website and didn't see any mention of RV's, just cars. I've been on several RV forums for about 10 years and don't recall anybody mentioning that product or any other for protecting the windshield. I replaced one windshield and had several repairs done on small chips so I'd sure be interested too.

RE: carpenter ants

Carpenter ant killer I've been using this for about 10 years around the outside of my house. I keep a small spray bottle inside for ants when they get in the bathroom during the summer. It doesn't smell. A friend of mine works in a pest control company doing house inspections and he recommended it. Bayer also has it in granules.

RE: water on windows

Thanks for the replies. I talked to my wife and we're thinking about getting one. Seems like it would be worth the money especially if it also helps with the cooling in the summer.

RE: water on windows

I bought a dehumidifier the smallest one Sears had. We run it in the living room at night and in the bedroom in the day. I don't run it every day unless we notice the windows getting condensation on them. It does a great job of removing excess humidity. Before I bought it we had water running down the bedroom closet wall soaking everything on the floor. We also had water drip on the dash from condensation on the front cap. After using it we have had no problem with condensation anywhere.If you spend time in the RV in the cold I highly recommend one. The other thing to think about is to much condensation could cause mold and delamination of sidewalls. Where does the water go? Do you run a drain line? Which model did you buy?

RE: water on windows

At night we leave the exhaust fan running in the rear of our coach and a window cracked up front. If we don't do that the windshield in the morning will look like it rained inside during the night. We put a couple blankets on and keep a electric heater going on low but it has gotten down to 42 inside a couple times. I turn on the furnace in the morning and it warms up pretty quick. Two people breathing produce a lot of moisture and that is what causes the problem.

RE: Question about being guided into a site.

I never use a spotter and when the campground guide leads me to my spot I then thank them and explain I don't use spotters. Your incident explains why I don't use anybody to guide me in.

RE: California coast

Interested in this topic aswell, I just booked 2 nights in big Sur I'm leaving from oxnard. We just got back from south lake Tahoe and took the i-5 it's long and boring I'd suggest take the 101 up through monterey. How do you get spots at yosemite? It's booked up well in advance. Is some of it first come first serve? Where did you book two nights in Big Sur?

RE: Broken down. Fuel pump issue?

When you are up to your behind in alligators it's hard to remember the object of the chore was to drain the swamp. Sounds like you were fighting a lot of battles!

RE: Total over all length

Has anybody on here ever been stopped, or know of some stopped, for being over length.? I see coaches with trailers that have to be over length many times a year and I've never heard of anybody being stopped for it.

RE: exhaust system

Are your exhaust manifolds good and it's just your pipes and muffler?
