RE: I Love My Manual Awning

News flash!!!!! Cars have electric starters. No longer do you need to use a crank to start it. If you don't want something because it's electric and there's a possibility it might fail, you probably should get a horse and buggy. NEWS FLASH!!! There are probably 6 electrical starter starter repair shops within 20 miles of my house and 5 times that sells rebuilts. Sorry can't come up with one buggy repair shop. Exactly. Get a buggy and you won't need electrical repairs.:B Got one, it still works. LOL

RE: Getting expensive

And those of us that depend on Social Security as our main income are not even in the top 50% in most cases. And we are really feeling the impact of higher campground prices, actually even moreso that the gas prices. The $10 I spent for a Golden Age Passport 11 years ago has been one of the best bargains we ever got! Yeah but Yahoo, we just got an average increase of $20 a month in benefits. We can go out and buy ...........................Oops, never mind I my insurance's went way more than that.

RE: What 5 R's are Aluminum Framed

Personally I am not be bothered by an aluminum framed wall, I just wish they could come up with something besides aluminum windows. They are the worst offender of heat/cold transfer.

RE: Lippert Frames

Popcorn! More popcorn! Side note: If Lippert products were really as bad as some would have us believe, there would be thousands of RV's sitting along side the road all over the interstate system. At least three of four per mile. QC is entirely based on allowable percentage failure rate. Money talks! Ha, ha, along with Chinese tires and SRW Trucks! Damn, I'm getting scared just to get out of bed in the morning. Oh, please all you guys with SRW trucks make sure to let me know your travel plans or I'll might just stay in bed. LOL. Oh, and you guys without bed savers!

RE: Tires always lose air in storage is this normal?

Had Michelin, Goodyear and bf Goodrich, in the last 10 years. Don't think I had to add more than a few times

RE: What 5 R's are Aluminum Framed

We had a Snowriver truck camper that was all wood. It was so solid it would put most fifth wheels to shame.

RE: Ios 8.1 out today

Apple has definitely lost its way after Jobs passed. They used to make sure they where nearly bug free before releasing, now they are rushing junk out the door microsoft style. I accidentally allowed my 5s to upgrade to iOS8, so now I am stuck updating to each patch. I wish I had waited a bit till they got it nearly bug free in whatever 8.x version that turned out to be. Yep, total disappointment on my iPad. Worst thing you can't go back. As a new Apple cheerleader I am completely disappointed in my expearance lately. The keyboard is a complete joke when entering text and numbers and heard rumors that Apple was going to give you some options. Didn't happen.

RE: A new kind of 5er?

RE: DEF addative

Buy it at a high volume dealer. When tractors first came out with it the factory sent us two mandatory pallets of it. Went bad before we could sell it all.

RE: Best Truck

Or you can read the real story with an independent test.The k&n myth.

RE: Best Truck

It has the K@N filter, a must have Not in AZ it isn't a must have! Too much fine dust here that the K&N allows thru. Tried them on a few cars over the years. Each time the inner air box below the filter was always lined with fine dust getting into the engine. Probably only an issue in the SW USA where very fine dust is everywhere. Yep, in the 25 years I sold and serviced atvs and motorcycles I trashed tons of those dirt suckers. If you could see the amount of dust that gets trough them and into the intake you would run, not walk away from the k&n.

RE: My Future Home?

Man that thing looks good for its age. Probably the nicest one I've seen. However if your going to spend the winters in Idaho I would opt for the apartment. If you could still swing it I would get it and learn about and fix it up for when your done with school. Then hit the road!

RE: I have gone 180 degrees and now back to a 5er

I do know that in that area they build some pretty good quality stuff

RE: Last bacon and eggs of the season

We didn't get to go any where this summer. Have my eggs (don't eat bacon) this winter 4 months in AZ.

RE: Best Truck

Get a good used one. Save big bucks. Tons of low milage older trucks because the deep pocket guys have to have the latest gadget. Oh, I would stay away from mid year Fords, Took e'm a long time to learn how to build a diesel.

RE: Improve campground WiFi signal

Please do listen to some that are being "judgemental". People use judgement every day of their lives. Most have experience you could use. Requiring a specific answer will never work, on a forum especially, or in person, if someone believes you may want to rethink your idea. You are going to use your own judgement, based on others experience, opinions and advice. That includes weak, slow bandwidth at a CG, how streaming affects that available bandwidth (or how you might affect your fellow campers) and the use od a data plan. As many have said, it is not because of signal but limited bandwidth (or it could also be a high latency). If a CG has a limited bandwidth and you try to take up 25% of that in streaming, you and your fellow campers will reap the consequences. That is why I take an SD (or USB) stick with movies on it. HD/H264 MP4 movies will average 1.5-2.5GB depending on the resolution you use. Red Box is a great resource. With these you do not worry about the video pausing to buffer the stream or if the neighbor cannot get to FB or email. Great post. At the risk of being flamed, no virgin to that. When using limited free wifi at a camp ground to down load data hogging movies rates up there with not picking up after dogs, loud music, and leaving a dump station dirty. Bring your own internet for that. Suits on flame away. LOL

RE: Gaudy colored and striped RV's

Our old Sunnybrook had minimalist decals...just a stripe with the Sunnybrook logo on a very large white box.... http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/Burbman/2002%20Sunnybrook%203310/009.jpg width=640 That's my style! Would love that on my RV, my decals are starting to fade. I even recovered my gaudy valances and removed the outdated wall paper border. Fancy don't make it better.
