RE: RV Swashes and Decals

I will be following this as my graphics will need replacement. Pogoil. X2 Yeah me too. Pulling this post would be a big disservice to most RVers. Forums are made for helping each other not big corporate profits.

RE: pulling motorcycle with rv. Open trailer or closed trailer

Lightest trailer I could find, aluminum maybe with a stone guard or cover the trike. Leaves out Heavy enclosed trailer. Just let mine ride in the open when I doubled. Only mess I had was driving on wet road after a storm. Dirty rain water gets every where. Made for a dirty truck, fith wheel and Hawg on the trailer.

RE: kid chopping down live trees?

Sorry, I would assume kid also. Kid being under 20-25. Been here since "45" and had seen more damage done to the forest by the younger generation in the last 15 years that it makes me sick. Was an avid ATVer and saw things that made me embarrassed for the sport from the lack of respect from "kids". Lack of discipline from adults doesn't help the situation.

RE: Keystone Montana

I want to thank everyone who replied to my original post. There was some good feedback and comments along with the "not so good" feed back. After reading all the replies, I believe the Montana is a fairly good mid level unit. As we all know, among any product, there are those that have a good experience and those that have a not so good experience. Thanks again for all the input. Lets call this one closed. Dale

RE: DTV wouldn't leave the bedroom receiver

I didn't want to run additional wires to the bedroom and he was difficult to deal with so we let him go. I'll try Best Buy and, hopefully, get a unit there. Could of just ran a cable over the floor into the room from another outlet. That's what I did. Installer didn't care.

RE: New way to charge Cell Phones

My pone does not require charging.;) Neet article. I have a few friends that would never lack for a charge and have plenty to spare. Agree...."Neet article" and my "pone" also does not require charging :B Gotta crank on your pone?

The easiest is the Jack Reacher method.

RE: Back to a TT

Sold our Snowriver for fifth wheel when we started staying in AZ for the winter. Our summer camping/ATVing is now limited because we just can't go where we use to. Tried keeping the TC a couple of years but having to pay storage on two spaces was a bit much. Sure do miss that Snowriver though and get TC envey when I see a nice one.

RE: replacement windows- regular home windows vs. RV windows

I asked the same question a few years ago and got the same answers. Someone need to come up with an alternative to that aluminum junk window. You sure wouldn't put up with aluminum in your sticks and bricks. :) ????? I think you mean junk aluminum RV windows??? We have aluminum windows in our stick & bricks house (actually there are at least 21 aluminum windows) They work great & been there since 1980........ :) Had aluminum dual panes in the house. Installed viynal dual windows There is no comparance between the two. Temperature transfer difference is amazing. Probably paid for themselves several times since the install 17 years ago.

RE: Sell House to Buy 5ver and Truck

Get the loans now, sell the house, use the funds to pay one or both of the loans (make sure there is no early pay off penalty), or a large portion of each. I would definitely pay off the truck first, as the interest is not deductible. Thanks, this is the route we think we're going to go. Seems to make the most sense and is the most direct solution. Gotta love how 20% of the people that responded seem to know all about my financials based on a couple of sentences. :R Gotta sell your house to put a down on an RV to go full time. Pretty well summed it for me. Surprised the other 80% don't see it.

RE: Sell House to Buy 5ver and Truck

Sounds like you do not have enough money to afford the RV. Bingo! And what are you going to do a few years down the road and you are either to old, sick or just tired of full timing? Your truck and RV is going to depreciate faster than anything you can think off. Where would you go, where would you stay. Need a BIG back up plan.

RE: Another tire question, do you rotate them?

When I replaced ours one side had a little more wear on one edge than the other. Asked if I should alighn the axles. He said the tires were five years old and weather checked so they were all worn out and need replaced anyway, so why bother. But, they would rotate them side to side every five thousand if I wanted for free. Made sence to me.

RE: I want a generator

In regards to leaving the generator home if you are going to stay in rv park. We were crock potting dinner when the power went out. Football game was about to start. Fired up the Honda 2000 generator. Power didn't come back on for several hours. Generator saved the day.
