RE: How do you define too expensive?

Anything that I cannot afford is too expensive. Otherwise, it's just a matter of whether or not I want it.

RE: Watching DVR without sat signal?

IIRC, you can press the red button, then go to the list of recordings after it restarts - but it's been a while since I had that problem.

RE: where to stay

From RV Park Reviews, about half way between your start and finish.

RE: Was retirement for you a good or not so good choice?

Neither my wife's parents nor my parents enjoyed any sort of retirement due to medical issues. One of the four of them died on the job, and the other three spent the last years of their lives in medical care. None were able to do any of the things they had hoped and planned for their retirement years. DW and I have been retired for 13 years, much of that spent full timing. Now, my health is starting to make life more difficult and less enjoyable than in the past. I am so glad that we've been able to use our RV as a magic carpet that has let us spend a lot of quality time with our children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, and other family members and friends, as well as visiting 49 states and most of Canada. I think that if you retire and decide it was a mistake, you can probably find some career to satisfy your needs for participating in the work environment. But whatever you choose, you can never turn back the clock. Best wishes to you and yours! Addendum: DW just reminded me how many widows we've met who are now doing the things they had hoped to do with their husbands - husbands who worked until it was too late to enjoy retirement together.

RE: Oldest tires on a MH still running?

I have two friends who used to own construction businesses. They had trucks and jeeps and other vehicles. Both of them operated their equipment as much as their businesses required. Some years trucks would sit around for months, and some times they would be in use for several years straight. They only changed tires when they failed, and often ran equipment on tires over 20 years old. They did have failures on old tires, and also on newer ones, but neither ever had any serious problems running the tires into the ground. YMMV

RE: Microwave help

We had the fan quit in our RV's microwave. I removed it and took it to an appliance repair place. Whatever they did fixed the problem and cost $40. YMMV To be more clear, I removed and took the whole microwave, I did not fool around inside it.

RE: Direct TV set recording via smart phone ?

Not that I do it all the time, but I've turned on recordings for my DirecTV DVR at home through the DirecTV web site. I do that to capture things like Masterpiece Theater so that I can watch them when we get home. It's always worked. Look here: set-directv-dvr-from-your-computer

RE: Toad Brake laws

One thing to think about. If you have an axident, your falt their falt nobodeys falt and you don't have suplamental braking. I wonder who is going to be sued. BillIf you are worried about being sued, you might consider buying insurance - you never know how a jury might act, whether you are right or wrong you can end up with a judgement against you.

RE: Alignment and Safe-T Plus

Did they align the rear axle as well as the front end?

RE: Windshield wipers cycling with chassis batteries removed?!?!

Sounds like the wipers are on your house batteries instead of chassis batteries. My wipers can't operate without the ignition on or in the accessory position. Unless your tenant is hallucinating, yes they can :)

RE: Visiting Yellowstone in May??

Be prepared for any kind of weather. This suggestion applies year round. Been there over 30 times and I've even seen snow flurries in July. I remember heavy snow on the 4th of July about 50 years ago. Most of the campers ended up abandoning their tents, etc. They plowed the roads, but it took a group effort to get the cars out of the campground.

RE: How to remove broken door latch

I would call a locksmith. I had a problem with the ignition key lock in a car, and AAA sent out a guy for free to remove the old lock and put in a new one. I did pay for the new lock, just a few dollars. Besides getting the door open, the locksmith can install a new lock.

RE: Babyboomer RV'ers Have Experienced it All!

Well, I'm too old to be a baby boomer, but my parents were born during World War I, and lived through the great depression, and my father and father-in-law were in the Army during World War II. Tom Brokaw labeled them as The Greatest Generation, and I think he got it right.

RE: Toad higher or lower than RV and 5K or 10K capicty riser?

Imagine an accident in which the RV comes to a complete stop very quickly (as in hitting a semi-truck that just pulled out of a side street right in front of the RV. If the tow bar angles down from the RV to the Jeep, the momentum of the Jeep is going to try to go under the tow bar and raise the RV in the air - which it won't be able to do, so it will just stop more suddenly. If the tow bar angles up from the RV to the Jeep, the momentum of the Jeep is going to try to rise up above the front tow bar connection and slam the jeep into the rear of the RV above the RV hitch. My guess is that tow bar angle is of little importance regarding the damage to the RV from the collision (it's going to be totaled), but in the "angle down" case, the Jeep might have less damage. YMMV

RE: Changing Filters On RV

Cat engine go with cat, Cummins engine go with Cummins. Going cheap with filters does not sound like a worthwhile investment. Funny, my Cummins M/M advises you use "Fleet Guard" as does our Northwest Cummins authorized repair shop. Fleet Guard is a Cummins brand.

RE: iPad Air 2

I've resolved several problems by talking to an Apple "Genius" on the phone. Unfortunately, I don't exactly remember how I connected, but I think it was by phoning an Apple store. Good luck!
