RE: Lancaster Pa

You can stay here - Old mill stream. .it is right on RT 30, in the middle of Lancaster... There is a lot around to do... We usually stay out in Spring Gulch, but it is farther to get to all the stuff....

RE: Your Rig

A quick run across the scale will tell him the weight on each of the axles. So where is the best place to get my rig weighed? I called a couple of my local dealers and they didn't have a clue. They acted like it was an unusual request. Google search your area... or any truck stop close by should have one... maybe one up on an interstate near you ? . . .

RE: Allentown PA to Burlington VT

Anyone know of the best route to take? I will be traveling in about a week, so snow shouldn't be an issue. Hopefully a route that will have a campground open about halfway. Thanks! 78 East - 287 North - 87 - 149 - 4 - 22A

RE: Disk Brake Conversion

What pump did they install? I have a Hydrastar pump and will soon have a P3. What value resistor? Ron usually uses the BreakRite ..

RE: Your Rig

^^^^ What those 2 said..... In addition, I can't see very well, but it does not look like the axles are flipped ? Usually they sit a lot higher in the air, I MAY BE WRONG, as I really cannot see it well enough. That is a lot of additional weight on the rear 2 tires..

RE: Buy tires or not

The biggest issue here is that they sat in the same position on the sidewall for the past 3-4 years . . That's the worst thing for a tire.. I would swap them out before rolling down the road, consider it an insurance policy.. Tires are made to ROLL . . Not SIT. . .

RE: Awning Replacement - Easy/Hard?

Me and my BIL replaced his in no time after watching a YouTube video on how to replace one.. It was very straight forward, but would not recommend it as a 1 person job... we needed the 2 of us ( 1 on each arm ) and a 3rd as we were installing the new, that person was on the roof making sure the new favric slid cleanly into the grove.

RE: Unbelievable find

I have decided to let my good friend have it for what I got it for. He needs a truck for his heat and air business and its perfect for him. He has been there to help me alot since I had the stroke last year and besides he really needs it and I don't. I will still post pics when we go get it Wed. That's how 2 friends treat each other.... great job. . . .

RE: update

Thank you Joe for the info. Being full timers, we do have the luxury of traveling where ever we want. Growing up in the suburbs of Philly, we do know our way around. I'm going to have a long talk with this 2nd doctor who moved the pacemaker but failed to realize the lines were in the way before I make a final decision. Thank you again. Hugs, Di I wanted to give you a long overdue update on us. Dutch is recovering from his total ankle replacement surgery and it seems to be healing quite well. He should have the stitches removed next week and hopefully start PT. His main health issue that they have been working on since October still hasn't been diagnosed but we're still trying. They say, ankle wise, we should be able to leave AZ in about 4 weeks. Unfortunately, we won't be traveling far as I have to get back to S. Ca to have a 2nd heart Ablation as the 1st one didn't take and while they did re-pocket the pacemaker that was causing all my pain, they didn't see that they also had to move all the wires deeper inside as they are causing as much pain as the pacemaker. Not sure I have too much faith left in any doctors for me right now :(but I'll prevail. Our goal is to be able to get back on the road by end of May/beginning of June. Hugs, Di If you ever get back on the East Coast, try and look up Dr, Danial Frisch ..EP at Jefferson Heart . .he did both my ablation s, and my Pacemaker... the man has a gift ! Good Luck to you both....Happt Easter Joe I am in Bucks County . . Sounds like you know the area well. !

RE: disc brake installation

Does anyone know where I can take my trailer and have disc brakes installed? I am in central Illinois and cannot find anyone who does this. Call Ron at Performance Trailer Braking Clicky... He may have a crew of installers close enough to you that they will come to your house... HE sells the Titan and Kodiak systems, and does great work.

RE: Movies from external hard drive storage to TV?

wd tv is pricey for what it is. u can get a amazon fire tv for 1/4 the price and install kodi on it, and it will play every single file format i have ever run across But you need wifi in order to acess the movies, correct? With the WD TV, you have them all already downloaded and ready..

RE: Movies from external hard drive storage to TV?

Check out WD TV Live. I know it will be an extra box. I like using the laptop connected to TV with HDMI better. Then use VLC a free program to play the movies. My Son's smart TV plays movies by connecting a external HD to the USB port on the smart TV I have a WD TV that I keep in my RV . . That along with 2 external hard drives, I always have 200+ movies at my finger tips... the WD box is really only about 3" square, and comes with all the connecting wires needed to hook up to the hard drive.

RE: Ham, Lamb, or Something Else?

My mother was Polish. Ham (local, glazed spiral slice; as good as Honey Baked at much less cost), Holiday Kielbasa (also local) with the strongest horseradish you can buy ! I love potato perogies, fried with onions and a dab of sour cream, but only my wife and I eat them, (holiday meals include a minimum of 6 adults and 5 children age 3-8) so she stopped making them ! She did say that she was going to do cooked red cabbage with apples ! Yummy !! What time shall I be there ??

RE: Ham, Lamb, or Something Else?

Ham . . Homemade mac and cheese . Pineapple stuffing. . . Baked beans. . . . Egg shaped cake, and bunny shaped butter !! I am only religious when it's time to eat, and at that pick a religion and I will be it for that meal . . B

RE: Buried 50A power to my RV

When I changed my service from wired to underground 15 years ago at the S & B , I took advantage of the trencher... ran a trench to the back corner of the RV and dropped in PVC and installed 30 amp service.. That was the best thing I could have done, had a bad wire, just pulled out bad, and pulled in new, upgraded to 50 amp while doing that... HAPPY HAPPY

RE: bradenton and sarasota area?

Hello everyone. we had reservations at a campground in cortez but have to cancel those due to pet policy. Its ok. they have their pet policy and we decided to get a pound pup that's 50 lbs. Any other campgrounds in the area? Closer to the beach the better. We've never been to gulf coast of florida and really appreciate any info. There is Sun N Fun in Sarasota...
