RE: 2 problems 1st time out. Please help.

Whenever we park for a week or more I set up 4 T-pees on the frame nothing will take out all the bounce unless you lift all four tires off the ground and block the frame in 4 or more places. There is just too much flex in the frame as well as the springs.

RE: Single big battery v/s 2 batteries in parallel

It's taken awhile but I had the batteries load checked and they are OK. It appears the furnace fan draws much more current than I expected. Next item on the budget will be a generator, I really don't like to wake up cold after an electrical outage.

RE: Shrinking the Truth

We have stayed several times at a county park that has "marked" 40' spaces. The manager has rigs parked back to back on an 80' pad and will not let someone longer than 40'park.

RE: Collapsing trachea

Our 12.5 Lb Chi mix has had this problem at times. Our newly trained young lady Vet says it is a reverse sneeze and her trachea is probably fine. Don't know about that, but we have found relief for her by letting her lick some honey when the problem crops up. It seems to sooth her throat and stops her wheezing. :) Yes, we never use anything except a full harness for restraint to limit the pressure on her throat. She is now 6.5 years old and doing fine. :) We use a "cat-type" harness on Petunia, our 9-lb Chi .. actually we take the Daisy harness/leash,and cut the leash part off, then use a regular retracting leash on the harness swivel part. Has worked great. Have tried other harness-types which are made for small dogs, and she all so proudly takes them off .. slips her front leg back thru the coat-type holes which slip over her front legs,and stands there waiting for us to see that she has stopped walking ... so have quit buying any of those harnesses. Seems the only one she leaves on are the ones which are for cats - called Daisy harnesses ... which reminds me that I need to order another one from Amazon .. although Petsmart or Petco have or used to have them. These dogs can be so hilarious sometimes .. and yes Petunia at 9 yrs old has the same 'choking' types symptoms, took her to a vet when we were in Florida in 2009 and he said it was her trachea, so we just stop playing with her or pick her up and she is ok. Just scary sometimes especially after having had a mini-dachshund years ago who died at the vets while choking .. vet couldn't save her. So have those visions now, hard to calm ourselves down sometimes though we do. So can understand it when people say it is hard to be calm. Hope all our pets stay well and continue to give us laughs .. Sorry for this being so long .. just being a long-winded Grandma.

RE: Single waste tank for an RV

Thanks for the replies, it doesn't seem to be a problem for our life style.

RE: Single waste tank for an RV

Old-Biscuit, thinking of a newer Foretravel. Only one tank would not be a deal breaker for me, still interested in someone who has one. thanks

Single waste tank for an RV

Does anyone have any experience with a single grey/black tank. I see some of the newer units have only the one tank and would like feed back. I do not boondock so capacity is not an issue, I've never had anything but the twin tanks so need more information from those who have a single tank. Thanks

RE: How old were you when you retired?

Retired 57,66 and finally 70. I just had a hard time saying no. Full time volunteering enjoying the great northwest.

RE: Safe Alert propane gas detector

Mine died after 5 years. Easy to replace.

RE: Single big battery v/s 2 batteries in parallel

I should clarify, we full time but only use the batteries when the park power goes out. The question, is this trickle or something else? We have one of those fancy converters in our trailer that is designed to keep the batteries charged.

RE: Single big battery v/s 2 batteries in parallel

I'm glad I found this thread as I'm sure it is about time I bought new batteries. The last 2 27's that I purchased have an August 08 date. As we full time, the first set of 27's lasted 4+ years, so by my estimation, our usage means 4 years or so on the batteries. I was looking over the postings to see if there was any kind of (average?) life for batteries that are in constant usage (generally on a trickle charger) but those times when the park power goes out it is really nice to have the batteries for the furnace. BTW I am going to stop at a "real" battery store and have them run a load check on each of them.

RE: Verizon Loyalty Plan

This topic always pics my interest as DW and I have a grandfathered plan with Verizon. We don't download movies or music and we run ~15 megs a month. I would suggest to anyone who is looking for a less expensive data rate to shop around as the old song goes. Depending where you are, and we have traveled extensively from coast to coast and into Canada (that's a pricey place for phone service we found out) there may not be a one size fits all plan.

RE: Who do you have insurance with?

We use a broker and presently have Progressive, not saying that we would not change if the coverage or price changes. Full timers since 04.

RE: Alpenlite Aspen

I would be interested in knowing if you found your Aspen. If you did there is a group on FaceBook of Alpenlite owners.

RE: Are you OK with.......

Before this thread gets shut down just think how state governments are now able to tax you on the miles driven. This issue came up in the state of WA because of the fuel efficient vehicles as well as the electric cars on the road. The loss of gasoline tax $ is causing the state legislature to come up with ideas such as this.

RE: Renting Land or Boondocking?

What do you do with the grey water? I don't know of a composting toilet that can handle the grey water produced by daily living.

RE: Totally confused trying to buy travel trailer

We have an '04 bought new, 8 years straight we lived in it with single digits. I can personally state that year around TT's are available. I'm afraid your budget will have to be revised upward in order to get you what you want. In '04 we paid in the $28K range.

RE: So how do you full time in your RV?

We spend most of the year doing volunteer work (?) for various agencies. While this would not appeal to every one it fits our lifestyle. We are in our 70's and find living in a 30'TT with 1 slide gives us adequate room. After 50+ years of marriage we find less is more as we have moved from a large sticks & bricks to our home on wheels. Our travels have taken us coast to coast and presently you will find us in the Northwest at Cape Lookout State Park, OR.

RE: McMinnville Oregon

Presently in Tillamook and have read the local paper concerning the old blimp hanger. Just to repair the old structure will require in the neighborhood of 16 million dollars. There is not that kind of money to be had in this county so the operator is going to relocate to Madras Oregon. It is much drier there and should be much better for the planes. The planes which are on loan to the museum from the Navy will no doubt go back. The Evergreen museum has many problems according to "Oregonlive" the museum and the freight entity Evergreen International Airlines which is across the road from the museum have a bunch of legal problems one of which is the alleged $50K which is still owed on the Goose to the Aero Club of Southern California. It appears some of the planes may have been used as collateral on loans. The lawyers are going to have a field day on this one.

RE: Propane use!

Presently we are in a State Park on the Oregon coast. Between the electric heater and the propane furnace we stay comfortable. I hope this mass of cold air tempers (warms) before it hits the Southern Rockies. We have had some very cold nights and the day temps haven't warmed up much.
