RE: UV Protection for Cable on Roof?

Thanks for the ideas. I did use PVC with the previous installation. Ralph

UV Protection for Cable on Roof?

I'm installing a cell antenna on my aluminum roof and running the cable down the fridge exhaust. Any suggestions on something to cover the cable to prevent UV damage? I have some Eternabond, but it makes a mess if I want to remove/replace the cable. Thanks,

RE: Trip Report: April in the California Coast Ranges

Nice report, Tiger. I live in Los Osos, so you were within a mile of me when there. :) Have camped at 5 of the spots you did and driven many of the same areas you covered. Hope your ankle mends quickly.

RE: Stable Load Install

1) UPS might hold them at their local facility or 2) If sent US Mail, then have them sent General Delivery to a specific town and you go to Post Office and pick them up. I did that on my Alaska trip.

RE: Eudora Email Woes

That answer is not good advice. While I realize it may get your program working again, what you're basically doing is saying "I know this certificate, which is part of the mechanism to provide security for me, is not safe but I want you to trust it anyway." The certificate came from an ATT mail server, so I'm not worried about it. Ralph

RE: Eudora Email Woes

G&G: I can't say THANK YOU loud enough!! :) That did it! Now I'll pass it along on the ATT forum to another bummed out Eudora user. With the SSL error I was just trying to click the "Accept" button, but it did no good. Never expanded the structure in the Certif Mgr. Now I'm 100% back to normal Eudora operation. My elevated stress level just dropped to near zero, too. :B Out of curiosity, are you a Eudora user and had the same problem? Thanks again, Ralph

Eudora Email Woes

Been using Eudora for 15+ years and love it. Two weeks ago when trying to get email from the ATT server I get: "Server's SSL Certificate Rejected: Unknown Error" Today I started getting the same error when trying to send email. !#$%^!!!!!! I haven't changed any Eudora settings, so logic says that something changed on the ATT server. I'm guessing that maybe a new SSL certificate has something in it that confuses obsolete Eudora. I've forwarded my incoming ATT email to another non-ATT account I have, which works OK. However, sending is another matter. Is this something a "Relay Server" would solve? BTW, Eudora version is 7.1. Thanks,

RE: How bad can the T.O.W road be?

I see where you get your picture taking abilities from ! Just what I was thinking. It was definitely in the genes. :)

RE: Where is your truck camper headed this summer?

This will be my 10th year to travel in my truck camper for about six months. I will take off in early May. I've been in every Western state (eleven in total), so far. I might try to hit every one again this year. Or, the Dakotas have been on my radar for the last couple of years, so I might visit them. Will probably make a couple of bluegrass festivals, also. I usually do 9K to 10K miles a year. This year will get me to 100,000 total camper miles, or close to it. Hopefully, my nearly trouble free travels will continue for this year. Honk if you see my Ramblin' Ralph bumper sticker!

RE: My Method of Loading Camper in Truck

I leave my camper on for 6 months of travel. When I take it off in November, I leave it in my driveway. After parking it where I want it, I run a string along the driver side tires and secure it to the driveway. Then I lift up the camper and pull out. When I'm ready to travel again, the string makes a handy alignment guide. Still have to do a bit of jockeying, but a lot less than normal. If the string is still there when I'm through traveling, I use it as a "parking guide", also. If I owned the place, I'd paint a line vs. the string.

RE: SR 8 (Denali Highway)

I took the 21 mi paved portion from the east in late August 2012. Stayed at Tangle Lakes campground. Checkout the 8/27/12 entry in my blog here for pictures of the area. Have fun! :)

RE: Bank blaming Comcast and Verizon

ATT is my email provider. I've had 3 cases where I never got an email that was expected momentarily (order confirm, etc.). I had the sender change the email address to another not-ATT account I have and got the email right away. These were 3 separate, well known companies. I think the "spam grabber" of ATT grabs more than spam. Probably the same for you. :(

RE: BLM Camping near Moab

I stayed at Horsethief 2 nights last month. There was a rig about your size (w/toad) next to me. In fact, the site I was in was probably about the same size. Not all are that big, however. Nice campground. Here I am in my site. I'm a bit less than 23 ft. Plenty of room left. http://www.hogtimemusic.com/nomad/photos2/RVSept14%20604.jpg Have fun,

If you're looking for government (fed/state/local) campgrounds in any part of the U.S., this is a great site: http://www.uscampgrounds.info/ Have fun,

RE: A Camper Window with a View 3

My windows are dirty, so this is thru the back door. :) I'm at Horsethief BLM campground about 10 mi N of Canyonlands National Park. http://www.hogtimemusic.com/nomad/photos2/RVSept14%20625.jpg

RE: Boondocking on North Rim of Grand Canyon

I think 2gypsies might be referring to the location below. The road is NF22. I was on the W side of the NF22 curve, but I see in the satellite view someone on the E side. I remember there was an open area that was "pull thru" vs. back-in where I was. The Kaibab Plateau is a great area for boondocking. Have fun! Google map of location here. (Zoom in to see NF22).

RE: Ramblin' in British Columbia

Thanks for the thumbs up on the photos! Due to the low cost of "digital film", I take enough that sometimes I get some good ones. :)

Ramblin' in British Columbia

On my annual trip to Montana this year, I decided to revisit British Columbia. This was a way to escape the heat and fires in WA and ID. Worked out well, as in the 2 weeks I was there, there were only about 4 days over 90F. As this was my 3rd time in BC, but I tried to cover some new territory. Crossed the border at Abbotsford, then worked my way E along Hwy 3 to Princeton. From there, much of my route was not a repeat of prior visits, and in a NE direction. I passed through Kelowna (too big for me) and Revelstoke and then spent the holiday weekend in Yoho National Park. From there I headed S along Hwy 95 and Hwy 93 into MT. I especially enjoyed this last portion of the trip, along the Western Side of the Canadian Rockies. As with previous visits, the BCers were very friendly. :) Below are a few select photos. Many others on my website (see signature). I've been visiting my cousin in Dillon, MT for almost 2 weeks and will start my return trip to CA after Labor Day.

RE: temp patch on a cracked gray water pipe ??

I had a leak in my shower drain plumbing. There was a crack in the ring that you spin onto the drain fitting and I couldn't tighten it to get the rubber ring to seal. I used JB Weld and it's held up for over 10K miles of travel. My Mechanical Engr buddy said it wouldn't, but it did. :)
