RE: Printer stopped working

The spool service stopped more likely due to the print driver crashing more than anything else. That said, if the spooler service is down you will not be able to delete the print job as 1492's video shows. Unfortunately some devices get so old its not cost effective for anyone to write drivers for them anymore. Its like finding parts for old cars. At some point you just have to throw in the towel. You may end up buying a new printer. First paragraph. haddy1 was correct about deleting files manually with the spooler service stopped. Second paragraph, very true. Not sure if this was the OP's first attempt to print or if it recently stopped working. More details about OS, age of printer and printing history would have been very helpful.

RE: Printer stopped working

Go into your computer's Administrative Tools, Services. Scroll down to print spooler. If it doesn't say Started, then right click and select Start. If it won't start, try a reboot. If it still won't start, check the Event Viewer to find a clue about why it won't start.

RE: firewood - emerald ash borer

I truly believe that campers hauling their own wood is a scapegoat for the spread of EAB... Maybe, maybe not. But it's such a simple measure to take if it's true. Unfortunately, too many people believe that if it inconveniences them, it must be bad/false/a government plot/etc.

RE: Any "must see" suggestions going thru Vermont?

What flavor at Ben & Jerry's? All of them. The only time I was there I tried (and failed) the Vermonster Sundae.

RE: search doesn't work

Try searching here for a popup blocker. Be careful when downloading any free software. Sometimes you click on a download button for something unrelated to what you wanted.

RE: Surge Protector Reading L1

As should go to a big box tool store and get yourself an inexpensive multi meter and, if you don't know how, get someone to show you how to use it. It's really easy. I always check the pedestal before I plug in. This link will explain more about RV electricity Why get a multimeter for a one time check when he already has a surge protector performing continuous checks? Just because power is acceptable before you plug in doesn't mean it will stay that way.

RE: texas

planning a trip to texas. prob San Antonio. but we are open to suggestions for other places does anyone have a favorite camp ground in San Antonio Ummm, in case you haven't looked at a map recently, Texas is a very big state. Without some idea of what your interests are, somebody would be hard pressed to recommend another area. You would probably also get better responses if you asked a moderator to move your post to the RV Parks, Campgounds forum.

RE: PI EMS Protector Questions

If your trailer is a 30a unit...get the 30a PI surge unit. I like the hard wired one they offer. You should also get a dogbone for the times when only 50a service is available in the campground/park.

RE: Commode question

Not sure which model toilet you have but for my Dometic you have to lift the foot flush to add water, press down to flush.

RE: weight loss, calorie counting watch ?

I'm still a bit confused. :) If you've not changed anything, how are you losing weight if still eating the same, and no different exercise? If I'm too nosy, just say so. :) I'm confused also. If I was losing 10 lbs a month by not exercising and not changing my eating habits, I'd want to see a doctor pretty quick.

RE: Family of 5

Our kids are 5, 9, and 12 and we were hoping for a class A or B. It would be mostly for weekend trips. Personally, I would rule out a B with 3 kids.

RE: water heater on 12 volt with gas

Do you have the model number for your water heater? Should be easy to look up with that. Or you could just flip the switch to turn on your water heater with gas (after making sure the tank is full) and listen for clicking sounds as it tries to light. If no clicking sounds you probably need to light a pilot manually.

RE: Break-away required???

It varies by state but wouldn't you want to be prepared for the most restrictive state?

RE: Jack antenna question

If you just do a head replacement, you'll still need to raise/lower the mast and orient the antenna in the proper direction. If the nearby transmitters are UHF, you'll probably get better performance from the Jack. Unfortunately, due to your location you still may not get any reception. You have a lot of mountains and trees and transmitters may be very far away. Before you commit, maybe you should make another camping trip to your favorite campground and walk around looking for Jack antennas. That way you can see how they do.

RE: What will I run out of first?

Like others have said. Go easy on the showers and use dish water to flush the toilet. Do dishes in a basin and save the water in a pail. Never pass up a chance to dump grey/black water. You can cook and run the fridge for weeks. Heat will kill the tank in a few days. Be careful about dumping the black tank too frequently. That tank has solids in it and needs to be over half full to move all those solids out of the tank. If you dump at 1/4 full, you'll likely leave 'stuff' in the tank to harden and cause problems in the future.

RE: where to get reviews ???

I suspect the reason that reviews are not shared is that the workers do not want others to compete with them for the job next year. Keep the good jobs secret and don't bad mouth a past employer. just saying I've seen 2 types of workampers. The first likes to come back to the same place every year/season. They should have no fear of competition since they're a known quantity and obviously have something going for them if they keep getting invited back. To the contrary, they may enhance their chances of returning if the employer sees them write a glowing review. The second type likes to keep moving around the country to see different sights. They would have no motivation to keep quiet about a great campground if they have no intention of returning. Don't bad mouth a past employer? You're absolutely right. Most of us were probably taught that if you have nothing nice to say about someone then say nothing at all. Hmmm, lack of reviews? When I first started workamping, I wanted to be part of the solution and write factual, objective reviews after each job. Well, I did that for my first job. It was mostly good but brought up 1 area where the manager had gone back on his word. I checked that review a few months after posting it and found the manager had accused me of having a serious personality disorder. I got the website owner to remove that remark but guess how many reviews I wrote after that?
