RE: ? Why Leveling Jack Pads?

I use jack pads when the ground is soft but otherwise they stay in the storage bin. I haven't painted mine but can see why those who use them all the time would want to make them more weather-resistant. I haven't used handles on mine but I did drill a hole in one corner of each pad and through which I looped a length of nylon cord. makes retrieval of the pad much easier on my knees. Ditto. I only use them on soft ground. But, I drilled a hole in opposite corners of my boards. I hook an old awning rod tip into one of these holes to place or remove the boards. No cord needed. I used pressure treated plywood. Bought a 4' X 4' pressure treated piece of plywood at Lowes and had them rip it into 4 one square foot pieces. I've had them since 2003.

RE: towing in northern ontario

Have done the Sault Ste Marie to Wawa run every year since 1997. The bridges were redone a year or two ago but even during that construction there was no delays. Light traffic in August as one would expect. Beautiful scenic drive.

RE: Coleman stoves and lanterns multiplying!

Interesting subject. I have my Dad's 1950's Coleman lantern. It has a chrome tank and a wide top reflector. He had a stove but he sold it years ago. He used to use unleaded gasoline in his. At that time the only unleaded was Amoco. It was referred to as "white" gas. Years ago I bought about 50 mantles. I still have them around here somewhere. Another advantage with these lanterns is they put off a lot of heat. Seems we always did our camping and fishing when it was cold here in PA.

RE: DirecTV (ATT) changing their policy?

I've always had an RV mobile account only. When I'm home I use the receivers in the house. I have never hooked a phone line to any receiver. I've had my RV account since 2002.

RE: Inconsiderate Drivers

I have an opposing opinion. Those that are being passed often unconsciously speed up. We've all seen this unconscious practice. -Tom, W3TLN

RE: spray lube for jacks?

I was at the HWH Iowa factory some years ago. The technician there told me to wipe the jacks down with the same transmission fluid I use in my jacks. The transmission fluid in the jacks lubes the jacks and does not damage the seals.

RE: Slow moving Speeder

If anyone wants to pass me I pull over at the first opportunity. Speed doesn't enter into the equation. Too many road rage incidents today.

RE: st. George island florida state park

Take plenty of bug spray. Mosquitoes are horrendous. But I like it here.

RE: propane extension to grill..

Tap into the high pressure side. Your Weber grill has it's own regulator. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/28666687/DSC01401sm.JPG

RE: Replacement tires

IMHO, the tires the dealers suggest are the tires they have in stock and want to sell. This benefits the seller, rather than the buyer.

RE: Anybody see anything wrong here for my water hookups?

What if someone flips the valve for the black flush when you're not around. Hello sewage flooded coach when toilet blows off the flange.

RE: Myrtle Beach Travel Park specific question

I've driven thru MBTP. There is a high sand dune between the campground and beach. The dune has a few openings to walk thru to reach the beach. A few sites may have a view of the ocean thru these walkways. I usually stay next door to MBTP at Apache. Apache is rundown but I always get a beach front site. I can see the ocean and beach from these sites. Plus, Apache has a long pier and you can see the beach and campground from the ocean. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/28666687/36.JPG height=400 width=600 https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/28666687/89.JPG height=400 width=600 https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/28666687/post card 3.jpg height=400 width=600

RE: Skyline Drive and Blue Ridge Pkwy

I drove both without any problems. It's a great, not to be missed, drive. http://www.irv2.com/attachments/photopost/data/500/DSC01823sm.JPGhttp://www.irv2.com/attachments/photopost/data/500/DSC01715sm.JPG

RE: wifi camera while camping

You'd need a fast internet connection. For "after the fact" monitoring you could use a game camera.
