RE: Does walmart sell wine in NJ and PA?

Pennsylvania is in the process of changing their antiquated liquor laws. Soon beer and wine will be sold in stores. Meanwhile, I'll continue to stock up in FL and other states. Plus, duty free coming back from Canada.

RE: Local Walmart/Home Depot

Typical "down and out" homeless YouTuber. But, interesting solar panel awning setup!

RE: How do you answer when a stranger asks about MPG?

7 mpg and quoting Lily Tomlin, "And That's The Truth". Actually, 7.03 mpg over 32255.2 miles. I just filled up yesterday. -Tom, W3TLN

Wine in PA is sold in state run liquor stores plus wine can be sold at the winery where it is made.

RE: Long term camping near Pittsburgh

15 miles northeast of Pittsburgh is Mountain Top CG. I live about 8 miles away and have been here. This is where you want to stay and I have no connection to this campground. The owner and his family live onsite. $236/week $550/month http://mountaintopcampground.com/ -Tom

RE: State College PA to Watkins Glen NY

Check gas price on Gas Buddy. Anymore since Pa raised the tax by 10 cents a gl. in some cases Pa is now higher then NY, I live right on the NY/PA border. I also check gasbuddy.com and was very surprised to see PA gas higher than NY. PA huge increase in fuel taxes is the reason as you stated.

RE: Roadside assistance

I have road service with my auto insurance. I have my MH and 2 cars insured under one policy. A feature of that policy is road service $4 a year. I used it once for an RV in over 43 years. About 10 years ago I got my old 35' MH stuck in sugar sand along side a highway outside of Wilmington, NC. I called the NC state police and asked them who they use for large vehicle towing. I called that towing company and had a Peterbuilt wrecker in half an hour. He winched me out backward by hooking on to my MH trailer hitch. I paid the tow truck drive $100 cash and got a receipt. I called my insurance company and they told me to mail them the receipt. In less than a week I had a check for $100 from my insurance company. I have never had any other type of emergency road service.

RE: State College PA to Watkins Glen NY

I've driven this exact route 4 times with in the last 5 years in my motorhome. This is a great route. 15N is almost all new 4 lane. It's amazing how they built this highway with very few grades in this hilly area. Fill you gas tank before leaving PA. Gas is much higher in NY. I filled in Lawrenceville, PA. about 1/2 from the PA/NY state line. Almost forgot. There is a large downgrade going in to Watkins Glen with caution signs. I had no problem going down the hill but I was cautious and drove slow. Also I think there was a bridge with a weight limit on 414 but I was close to the limit and ignored it.

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.
