RE: Tire age vs inside storage question

Did the dealer ever answer you question. "How old are the tires?"

RE: Tires...To Shine or not to Shine??????

I've been using liquuid floor wax since the early 60's. Works well, is cheap and looks great.

RE: Built-in TV Signal Amp

If you're speaking about the Wingard crankup, the amplifier is located in the roof antenna. All that is in the RV is the switch.

RE: Gasoline Evaporation of 3/4 gallon per week ???????

Have you considered someone syphoning you gas?? II bit my tongue but gave up. SERIOUSLY someone siphoning 3/4 gallon every week! I thought his 3/4 a week was a weekly average over x amount of time. I didn't realize that 3/4 gal was lost every week.

RE: Trade-in advice

Go to the dealer without your trade and do not mention that you have a trade in. Negotiate what you consider a good price for the trailer you want to buy. DO NOT MENTION THAT YOU HAVE A TRADE IN! After arriving at what you consider a fair price for the new trailer, then and only then bring your trade in into the equation. Ask the dealer or go to a library and get the wholesale value of your trade in from the NADA RV pricing guide. This guide is not the NADA online guide. Subtract the wholesale value, from the NADA guide, from the "no trade" price you arrived at with the dealer. The difference will be you price w/trade. The paperwork will show the full MSRP price of your new trailer minus a greatly inflated value for you trade in. But, the difference will be the same as the procedure I outlined above. If you want more than wholesale for your trailer sell it yourself, but remember you'll pay full sales tax when you purchase from a dealer without a trade in. This procedure is also the same when purchasing an automobile. This is Consumer Reports method of purchasing vehicles WITH A TRADE IN. -Tom

RE: Kitchen Matches

"Strike anywhere" matches are not "safety matches". It is very difficut to find "strike anywhere" matches anymore. They may be illegal in some states. -Tom

RE: Oklahoma City to Chicago - best route for motorhome? Tolls??

I don't like to pay tolls, but I've found that the better gas mileage obtainable on toll roads offsets some of the toll costs. -Tom

You can use 30 amps, even if you had 2 ACs.

RE: St. George Island fl. campground

Misquitos are very, very, very bad in the campground. Not so bad on the beach, because of the breeze.

RE: Before everyone loved Windows XP, they hated it

I stayed with DOS for a few years after Windows was introduced. I still keep my checkbook in CHEX. CHEX is a DOS pgm and runs in a DOS window in XP. But alas, Win7, 8 and 8.1 will not run a DOS pgm. Even with the emulator. I need a good Windows checkbook pgm. No, not Quicken.

RE: stink bugs

My FL winter friends from Minnesota have never heard of stinkbugs. -Tom

RE: stink bugs

Spray bottle mixed with 2 parts dawn dish soap and fill with water. They will make maybe 6 inches and be dead. Then you can pick up the carcasses and dispose of them. Also spray every crook and cranny you can find. I placed a cup with water+Dawn in my closed up motorhome all last summer. Caught none!

RE: stink bugs

How do you get rid of stick bugs in a rv I took mine to FL for the winter. 3 or 4 times a day I let 1 or 2 out of the motorhome. -Tom

RE: Snow Birds Fleeing Florida!

We left Crystal River, FL Dec. 1st. Drove to Columbia, SC for the night, then to Fayetteville, WV for another night. Arrived home near Pittsburgh Dec. 3rd. I was surprised how light traffic was on I-95. -Tom
