RE: San Antonio Texas

The World War II musieum in Fredericksburg is also very interesting, but to see all of it will take 2 days. You could probably spend two weeks in SanAntonio / Fredericksburg area.

RE: San Antonio Texas

Per campinginthevwoods make sure you visit Johnson’s federal and state parks, Johnson musieum in Johnson city also interesting and of course how can one miss visiting, Lukenback,Texas. These require visiting Fredericksburg which is just down the road from SanAntonio.

RE: Roof mounted heat pumps

We’ve corresponded on this subject and the answer is “yes” as long as it’s not an Atwood. Every other brand heat pump I’ve had in four other motor homes, the heat pump runs as long as the T stat calls for heat. Atwood is the only brand I know that runs the fan and only starts the compressor once every three minutes or so. Atwood has basically confirmed to me as well that this is the way it is supposed to work. It will not heat any part of me coach. I’ve trashed a new Atwood acnd with heat pump to buy another brand. It was a great acnd but absolute waste of money if you want the heat pump.

RE: Dry Wall Question

It’s been many years ago but I too have hung lots of Sheetrock. The closest I can get to what you are asking is; I put 1/2“ Sheetrock on top of 1/2” rock on an entire room. The room originally had wood paneling on top of the sheet rock and I wanted the paneling removed to paint the walls. The paneling had been installed with copious amounts of liquid nail which ripped the white paper off the existing rock. Could never tape over the brown paper so put new rock and taped and floated the entire room. That came out really well with no problems whatsoever. Don’t think I would be concerned about what your wife is asking be done.

RE: 2 National Monument Land Reduced by 'over' 1.1 million acres

Utah was not consulted on the original designation and many believed it was a very big over reach then. Most of the land was under state control and was open to hunting and other recreation activities that would not be allowed under federal control. That and with the park service lack of dollars to even operate or manage the new areas put the areas taken back, which was not all of it by the way, under management of the state. The state can make it a state park, some may have been before, charge for the use and keep the income as opposed to the feds getting it all. It not all bad that some was taken off the federal roles and put back to the state.

RE: FMCA to allow Towables Owners to join

Been an FMCA member since 1987. I voted to allow other like minded people who have a self contained RV without sn engine to belong to the organization. Have many friends that have the same RVing interest as we do, with all the same equipment except for the chassis. FMCA has a good organization, sponsors good rally’s and membership has some good benefits. Why not allow other like minded folks to participate. Increase the membership base, possibly increase membership benefits and maybe even save a good thing from going away because of increased costs etc..The additional people qualified to join are your neighbors in almost any and every RV park, state or federal park you have ever been in.

RE: Buying a used MH

Our Newmar coach as well as several friends have the paint checking. As a result Newmar replaced all the siding matrial complete with all new paint on ours and our traveling friends at a reduced cost. So yes another confitmation that all including Newmar coaches have the problem up to and including 2008. I had a winnebago, white in color, that had no paint and with the exact same problem. Manufacturers of painted products seem to call the condition "side wall checking" and unpainted were called "sidewall etching". The condition is the same and affects appearance, not function.

RE: Non-Resident RV Registration in New Mexico

I live in NM and never knew this. It is correct the sales tax on any vehicle is 3%. Registration renewal costs are a little out of date. My coach renewal is about $120 a year. Not sure of the exact amount as I renew for two years at a time and it seems to go up every time I renew. Guess Id check the state I live in to see if they agree, NM also has a rule that you must get a drivers license within 30 days of moving here. If you go over 30 days they add $75 to you bill. I cant imagine other states allowing folks to drive and register in a state other thsn the one they live in. After 20 plus years in the military I know there were exception for active duty folks, but everyone else had to have current residentency drivers license and registration in states where I lived.

RE: Concrete cutting... need opinions.

Because your primary concern is to be able to sweep water and dirt out, have you checked to see if water runs to any one location along that portion of the stem wall. If so only remove about a foot or so at that point (if that point exists) . Doesn’t solve the whole question you ask, but would make for a whole lot less work. To make ie easy, check with a concrete contractor that has a curb cutting saw. Probably not cheap but he could do it in a few minutes. They did it all over town where I live putting in ADA compliant street crossing.

RE: Strategy for with drawing tax deferred money?

If not needed I agree do not take money out. However If for some reason you want to take some tax free money out of a 401 or an IRA to put into a Roth, you Could take enough out to stay in the same tax bracket to do that. You would have to pay the tax on it though, but it would continue to earn money tax free after that an not reguire you to take any minimum each year.

RE: Coffee Storage

If ground coffee gets put in any smaller contsiner, we won’t have to worry about it. Just a few cups of coffee and it’ll be used up in a very short period of time.

RE: Albuquerque, N.M. balloon festival 2018

Where ever you decide to stay, do not delay in making reservations. You may be too late already.

RE: Do Slides scratch or disrupt Pergo flooring?

I believe the slides on National producta actually slid on the carpeted floors. I had a 2000 model and had some rough spots on the bottom of the living room slide which snagged and damaged the carpet. National fixed it at the time, but I think they may be a problem if the carpet were changed to hard flooring.

RE: Rain noise...Alpenlites are so loud...

It’s all in the construction of the roof. Know a couple who went from a Winnebago to a Monaco product. The Monaco is very quiet and the Winnebago is very loud. They missed hearing the rain. I went from a noisey Winnebago, 4 different ones over the years, to a quiet newmar product. I didn’t miss the sound at all. The rain hitting the Winnebago roof could be so loud it “drowned” out the TV.

RE: MS Street and Trips replacement

responses to this will be interesting. I have found nothing I consider close to it. So, I still use it for overall planning and info but use a Garman GPS programmed for the finer point to point travel. I used to actually put a lap top on the dash of the coach for traveling now do the planning and put the garman on the dash. Works for me,actually better. Also the garman has lane assist and now would not be without it.

RE: Stabilizer jack recommendations?

Facing similiar situtation. We have the old atwood level legs electric Jacks on our motor home. One or more almost never work each time we retract the Jacks to leave. I've checked about every source I can or want to. Atwood has a new generation of electric Jacks and recommend I change out the entire system. The old ones don't work and I'm not going to trust the new ones simply because the old adage of fool me once your fault, fool me twice my fault, apply here. I checked two more sources. HWH and Equalizer systems. One is about $6000 and the other is about $4600. Checked with a trusted RV service manager and his jack tech. The recommendation HWH. My experience agreed with the same. Had HWH on last 5 coaches and never had a problem. I did have a camping world install HWH jacks on a class A similiar to yours about 18 years ago and never had a problem with them either. May be costly but if you want something reliable that you will not have to worry about working I'd go with HWH. That's what I'm doing.

RE: Marshon Lattimore Mike Evans...NFL

Not sure what one can expect from a professional football player. Nearly everyone one of them went to college, but very few actually graduated. I always figured if one went to college for 4 years and came away without a degree they were not too smart to start with.

RE: SafeRide RV Motor Club roadside assistance

I had one roadside service guy tell me that he was called and responded to calls from both Good Sam and Coachnet. He said his experience was that Coachnet was "easier" to work with. I didn't question him further but assumed that meant he was paid either better or faster by Coachnet.

RE: Atwood Heat Pump

I garantee if the thermostat does not at least start and run the furnace, there is something wrong with a sensor, the thermostat or the installer missed something. Mine seems to control the temperature while on the furnace, however I have to play with it to find the comfortable temp. Can't trust to set it and get it. I'm still working with people to get it operating like it should. The factory guy told me how it is designed to work and mine does exactly as he said except it will not heat my coach or get it too the set temperature with the heat pump. The outlet temp is hot enough, but it will not run long enough to get to set trmp. Not sure it will ever happen and may have to junk it and eat the cost.
