RE: Awning Cleaning???

We were given something by the dealer when we bought the TT. It did not work. We bought some Tilex which was all we found in the area we were in. Did not think it would work any bettr but it did. Have used it ever since and am pleased with it.

RE: Dinnerware for RVing

We use some Corelle ware plus some good microwaveable for baking. We also have some paper plates for lunches that are mostly sandwiches. When we travel they are kept in place by foam swimming noodles. Corelle breaks into lots of tiny pieces when it breaks.

RE: Sleeping bear dunes camping??

They have quite a few sites that are large enough. On ABC someone said it had the best sites of any National Park and now it is difficult to get in. Good luck.

RE: Frustrated by short beds and uniformed salesmen

Your toddler can take a shower. Take your pillow and make it narrower and you need a shorter bed.Do you really sleep on your back all stretched out? If you do you probably snore. Sleeping on you side will probably lead to a happier marriage. Your knees bend and you do not need as much length. My six foot four uncle said he had to adapt to the world as it was. And would I be disgusted if everything was too short for me. Good luck in your search. One of our old Keystone Outback bunks is longer but it is so narrow it would probably not help you at all.

RE: Summer has Started! Let's swap Potato Salad recipes

Potatoes, celery, radishes, diced onions, hard boiled eggs, chives, Mayo, added some ranch dressing once when I did not have enough mayo and it was great, No recipe just add until it looks right. Had to eat some made with mashed potatoes once and did not care for it but some people raved about it.

RE: Forwarding Mail - a cautionary tale...

We put a note covered by plastic and held in place by a rock in the mail box. It has worked well.

RE: campers for 10 people

Our old Outback sleeps ten but it would not live ten and probably all the others that sleep ten would not live ten. When we have that many guests we put up a tent that makes living ten possible. Only would work where that is possible.

RE: Traveling with a cat

We had a cat that loved to camp with us. We took a litter box that was in the back seat of the truck while we traveled. On the other side of the seat was a box with his blanky on for him to lay on and look out the window. He was always on a leash in case he tried to get out when the door was open and we wanted to grab the leash and stop him. When husband got out to get gas he sat on my lap. He learned to go for walks at the campground, sat on his own chair by the fire and every night about eleven he would go the the TT door and ask to go for a walk. When we went to the door he would sit on his leash so we take him. The one problem with walking him was when he decided he needed to use the litter box he would make a mad dash for for the TT pulling me behind him. Opie was twelve when he went camping for the first time so you can teach an old cat new tricks. Opie howled the first ten miles of any trip and then settled down. I think he knew then that we were not going to the vet.

RE: What will happen?

I have seen, from the outside, some great looking buses made into RVs. The people who have done it know what they are doing. Do the boys really know what they are doing? When a school gets rid of a bus it is usually because they cannot make the necessary repairs anymore.

RE: Boondocking at Grand Grand Canyon - Suggestions please

Ten years ago we stayed at the north rim the first few days of October. They closed the day after we left. Make sure that you are not planning on staying too late if going to the north rim. And we loved it. Hiked to the bottom but we were young then, just seventy. Hiking up was the hardest part.

RE: Bear away

We were told not to have things like aprons, dishtowels, washcloths hanging outside on the line when camping in bear country. Do not throw out dishwater on your lot. There were more things but they have eluded me now. Everyone should have bear spray. Ten years ago it was expensive, I assume it is more so now. We burned any food scraps. Stirred the fire pit and then burned them some more.

RE: How many out there have cats that travel in their RVs?

Besides our queen bed we had four bunks and one bunk belonged to the cat. His litter box, food and water and Rubbermaid cave sat on it.He was very upset if they were not put on just so. He learned to walk on a leash and expected several walks a day, he would howl at the dog and when we got up he would go sit on his leash so we would not forget him. He had his own chair by the fire and let people know they were not to sit on it it someone dropped over and took his chair. When out for a walk he had to run back to out lot if he had to use his litter box. He could not go anywhere else. He was an indoor cat at home and was afraid to go outside the first time. He was never allowed outside unless he was on his leash. If he saw us packing he was ready to go.

RE: Newbie here Looking for a light weight TT for 5 suggestions?

Have you considered setting up a tent along with the TT Our old 03 Outback sleeps ten but it does not live that many. We have a seperate bunkroom that sleeps four plus has two closets and a cupboard. The table holds five, I guess the others are supposed to wait their turn to sit.

RE: Movie Oddities

I did the same thing as a child and teenager. I would have had more fun if I had not noticed how wrong the history in movies was.

RE: Sofa upgrade

A swimming noodle split down the center can be placed in the center with a foam mattress pad over it and it no longer feels uncomfortable according to a friend. Someone told me that they used an air mattress but I have not tried that. We have room for five to sleep without using it so we have not had to use the sofa to sleep on.

RE: Canned ham?

I was given one and I thought ugh. The person who handed it on to me thought the same thing. It was fine and handy.

RE: Where to put bikes?

I had an old comforter. I sewed it into a wallet shape and it covers the bike. The bike leans against a bed with a Rubbermaid container on the other side to hold it in place. My husband can get it up the steps with no problem. I use some nasty words when I have to do it. I watched a bike fall off the back of an RV and do not want to put ours there.

RE: Your trailer usage anually

We usually spend 80-100 days camping and family uses it as a guest room 10-20 days more. No weekends but it does count camping for several days that include the weekend. The longest we go is when we stay put at a national park for 26-28 days. And that does not include tent camping or backpacking.
