RE: Hershey RV Show info

IMO Hershey is 15 acres of shoddily assembled garbage, that you pay to see and get the opportunity to fight through a crowd to do so. We have went 1/2 a dozen times over the years, and I'm so happy the wife lost interest in it I could poop my pants. But if it floats your boat have at it. Somehow you managed to buy the same garbage you claim they display at the show. It appears you must like the RV garbage just like the rest of us

RE: Maiden voyage

Nice. I'm glad your first outing was a success. 3 years in our trailer and I have never backed it in while dark. I'm planning on some supplemental lights to help when the time comes. I never backed mine into a site when it was dark, either. I always made it a pint to arrive at an RV park while there was some light. If I knew I couldn't make it before dark I'd opt for staying at a different venue overnight, such as Walmart. If I had a significant other to help guide me, I may have attempted it, but there are too many opportunities to hit something when it's dark. Just not worth it, IMO. Yeah, I was kidding about the backing up in the dark part.....definitely wouldn't want to have to do it. In fact, our next trip is about a 6 hour drive from us, so I'm planning on heading down ahead of everyone else to get there in the daylight. As much as I try to avoid it. I have backed in in the dark many times. It can be done but should be avoided. If I have been to the CG prior to the point that I am a little familiar with the layout it's doable. However coming into unfamiliar territory at night can be a nightmare.

RE: RV Plumbing

Sorry to burst your bubble but all glue traps are routinely/always used on showers. It's easy enough to cut the pipe and reinstall a new drain and trap if necessary.

RE: What makes some cell phones worth ten times others?

Apparently asking what makes one thing better than another, leads to condescending comments on the forum now. Thanks so all who contributed to this thread. Quality of the screen,sensitivity of the touch pad,processor speed, amount of RAM, amount of internal storage, size and/or availability of external memory card, battery capacity,operating system, input and output ports,casting ability are all technical matters that separate and economy phone from an expensive phone

RE: What makes some cell phones worth ten times others?

I'm happily sticking with my flip phone. I'll use my PC or tablet for the internet. I have a separate digital camera for pictures i use my phone when i repair things download service manuals use you tube videos as i repair things look up prices and compare models when shopping and many other things also to take pictures instantly that you would normally miss and i do not have to have my separate camera or laptop with me. i can do that stuff wherever i am because it's right in my pocket. Exactly and if you are being billed for my services you will be glad I have that $1000.00 phone in my pocket. Often it allows me to get your equipment fixed on the spot vs. making a return trip. That $1000.0 phone allows me to have and see lots of info

RE: surge protector/ EMS

With those 3 things on at the same time, I suspect you over loaded the 30 amp breaker. an EMS isn't going to help this. This is absolutely the case. I completely missed this in my initial response. The OP should certainly get a good protector like the various PI units mentioned here, but it won't solve the problem of simple amperage overload. I doubt ANY 30-amp electrical system will handle the load described. R AS mentioned it is a good idea to have an EMS. However the OP simply overloaded the circuit by using too many appliances. EMS will not make a difference in this case. The OP needs to learn you cannot you everything at once. You will need to practice energy management techniques and be mindful of which appliances are in use.

RE: What makes some cell phones worth ten times others?

I won't try to justify the cost of the phone however many people ues their phone has their mobile office. They receive email. They store 1000's of documents.they use the calendar, they operate their desktop computer remotely. They order supplies. They track supplies and shipments. Sure they do basic things like text and make calls, but with all the apps available the phones are a lot more functional/necessary than you think. The average retired person does not need and cannot conceive of the need for a 256GB phone.

RE: Tv antennas blowing off

Wow sounds like a very poor design. Keystone should be ashamed of themselves for not covering this issue. Now that it has happened twice they should pay for the first unit as well

RE: To buy used or new?

If your going to keep it a very long time then buy new. If you want to get exaclty what you want and cant find it used, buy new. X2, If you're in doubt, not sure if you enjoy camping, not totally sure what model you want. Used is OK. As mentioned above be sure you are capable of choosing a unit that is in good shape.

RE: Tv antennas blowing off

Are you actually seeing it blow off as you travel down the road? Were you able to stop and retrieve it?

RE: Outside kitchen?

I don't have an outdoor kitchen and prefer it that way. I prefer to make use of the space as simple storage. I don't want double of everything. 2 microwaves, 2 sinks, 2 stoves. I can set up quite an elaborate kitchen when I want it. However I sometimes hotel camp and never use/need kitchen at all. I prefer no to have 2 dedicated kitchens.

RE: What Free Third Party Picture Hosting Site Are You Using?

From the Imgur terms of service: "don't use Imgur to host image libraries you link to from elsewhere" So? I have never run into that situation so I have no problem with it. Imgur works great and they dont bother you with spam. Photobucket was great for about 10 years too. Then they arbitrarily changed the rules. Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me. At this point I have no reason to trust any of them. It seems they have no 3rd party hosting in their rules. Why should I think they won't decide to flip the switch one day? Sorry no thanks.

RE: Man on a mission, sorry but it's kind of long

I don't know of any reciprocity agreement between states that will allow you that kind of liberty. If your home state allows you to pull a double tow of 75' and you get stopped in a state that only allows 65', you'll get a ticket. I think you're barking up the wrong tree. I'm not talking about things such as length limits, that has nothing to do with what a license allows. That is a separate issue from "class of vehicle" for the purpose of licensing. What I'm saying is why should it be so that you and I could be driving side by side in California with identical vehicles and because I live here I need to meet special license requirements and you, because you are from another state can, drive in California without meeting those requirements. Steve Simply because it is not possible. CA can only regulate it's citizens. It cannot place the same demands on others. In the end CA achieves their goal. Yes there are a few out of town'ers but their numbers are not significant.

RE: At the CG do you mainly use the CG showers or your RV's?

RV shower. I never even go into the CG showers or bathroom . I have no reason to. I have my own facilities.

RE: using Walmart over night.

No argument with your post. Does it mean you don't agree with the " Good Neighbor Policy? Not that I don't agree - or that I do Agree - I do as they ask - they have no rules, other than to call and ask permission, so I don't pretend to be a rule maker. If you ever camped next to or near me I would think you would not have a problem - we help people out, we leave places cleaner than we found them, we try to treat people and places as we would like to be treated - but I take care of how I act - not everyone else. If Wal*Mart wanted all those rules they would post them. They don't so I guess they really just want you to call before you park, which I do. So if needed I'll put my jacks down - I can't sleep in my Coach without deploying a slide or two. I shop in Wal*Mart year round, along with Sam's Club so you might say I'm a loyal customer. (25 years+) So I guess I just don't get it - Wal*Mart makes the policy I follow the policy, I'm Happy they're Happy - End Of Story. JMHO, Ultimately it's common sense if putting your jacks down leaves no trace behind jacks down are fine. If jacks down leaves a divot or indention in the asphalt than some means should be taken protect the parking lot from damage. Walmart does not need a long list of rules,they will never be able to regulate every scenario. On the other hand just because there are no posted rules does not mean it is OK for RV'ers to do whatever they want!:S

RE: Why don't they ?

RAIN.......RUN OFF Biscuit you got it right. You do not want to direct ground water/rain towards the sewer connection. It causes the sanitary sewer to overflow with rain water!

RE: How Come Some People Can Be So Cruel

Watching from afar. Don't judge. If you have to choose between humans and animals humans win. I agree there are life and death decisions being made, I would not judge or comment unless you are in their shoes. At some point, on some level animal life becomes secondary. Many are in a true crisis situation. We like to pretend imagine our pets as our kids, however when human life is at stake there is a real difference.
