Any experience with the product, "Through The Roof"

This product, "Through The Roof" is by Sashco and is used as a sealant on home roofs. Can't think of a reason why it would not work on RV's. Looking for someone who might be knowledgeable from experience with its use. THANKS!

Looking for a mail order source for Brazil Nuts and Bulgur

My favorite store, HEB, has a lot but they don't have either of these. There are a number of online sources for each. Would like a recommendation to a online source based on experience. THANKS!

What is, "Page fault in non paged area"? error message

I've been trying to update from Windows 8.0 to 8.1 and near the end of the update I get a messages that reads, "windows could not load 8.1 because of a page fault in non paged area". Re-installation is automatically begun, but I get another message that that can't be done, so I must restore to an earlier state. This whole process is about 1 1/2 hours. My question is: what is a page fault in a non paged area and how do I correct it so 8.1 can be installed? Thanks!

RV Pet Ramp Recommendation

I've posted before, maybe in this forum, of my search for a pet ramp for our children. There are 3: Corgi, Jack Russell and Catahoula. I have the usual sources: Pet Smart, Dr. Foster and PetStep. Nothing I've seen has really excited me. All input appreciated.

Any experience with Straight Talk Hotspot?

I was with Millenicom for about a year. What a dependable service. Never failed to work well: even in the mountains of Montana near Glacier National Park. With Millenicom swallowed up by Verizon, I'm looking for a similarly dependable, inexpensive service. Don't need 20 Gigs; half of that would be fine. For now, Straight Talk is being explored. Would appreciate info and other recommendations.

Compare and contrast Straight Talk to Net 10.....

As I understand, they each operate from Verizon towers. While I'm pleased with Net 10 as a phone service, I'm lookin to have a Plan B! I have lost the Millenicom Hotspot and Straight Talk has a Hotspot that operates from the Verizon Towers. My question is: compare and contrast Straight Talk to Net 10 as a phone service and HotSpot. THANKS.

How do I stop Microsoft 8.1 notifications?

I'm constantly getting this notice to update from 8.0 to 8.1. I don't know that 8.1 is a good thing. How do I disable the notices? THANKS!!!!

Need awning replaced, company recommendation appreciated

In a separate post I asked about replacing the awning on my 2000 Winnebago Minnie Winnie. The replies helped me to decide that I will have a company do it. Finding a company with individuals I am comfortable with has been a huge challenge! I'm in Southeast Texas (Beaumont) and would like someone in that area. I've always been picky about who works on my vehicles, house, etc. and am willing to drive for service. I need to be comfortable with the person and must believe they know what they are doing and will be honest and fair with me. If you know of such a company and have had personal experience with their service, I would appreciate their name and contact information.

RE: Photo-editing Software

I agree with Mr. Camper; even to the point of not wanting to argue my position. My experience with digital editing extends over a 20 year period from business use to teaching. When I retired I wanted to update my Photoshop program but did not want to pay for the full version of Photoshop so I began looking at Photoshop Elements 12. I found many YouTube videos that were most helpful and then I got a 30 day FREE trial version from Adobe. At the end of my 30 days I was able to buy Elements for about $50. If you are not using a digital editing program you are definitely shortchanging your creativity. Digital cameras will never put all of the tones where you want them. Digital editing programs should be used for tweeking; not to correct mistakes or lack of knowledge with the original execution. LEARN YOUR CAMERA! Learn the relationships of f/stop and shutterspeed, RAW exposure, how to and what to focus on, and histogram. Know where all the buttons are, what they do and when to use them. Know your camera so well that you can operate it without really thinking. Then and only then does image making become real fun! Is there a learning curve with Photoshop Elements 12? Absolutely!!! Are the results worth the learning effort? Absolutely!!! I use Photoshop Elements to TWEEK not create. Even now there are many tools in the program I do not use. Visit YouTube. Watch videos showing the basic use of the tools. Keep watching. Become somewhat familiar with the program and then get a FREE 30 day trial. You will not regret it! Every image you will ever make is a compromise!The center of interest does not belong in the center. Know your subject and never have the background compete with the subject. Pay attention to the edges. Every image I make is made in the RAW mode and I verify the location of information through the histogram. You are the image creator! If you are proud of your images get the very best program to tweek them! You will never regret that decision!

RE: Have you replaced the awning of your Class C?

I do appreciate the input. I'm in the process of contacting RV companies in the area. There are some who have responded immediately and some who haven't. Will keep y'all posted: especially as to costs.

RE: Have you replaced the awning of your Class C?

THANKS for the info! With all that is involved I'm leaning towards having someone who has done it install the replacement. Now, to find a company who can do what they say they can...and not cut corners!

RE: Need Texas Inspection On Class C

I live in Beaumont and Meinke has done three inspections. They don't even bring it in the bay. A Class C is no different than any other inspection! Contact a local RV dealer for a recommendation.

Have you replaced the awning of your Class C?

I have a 2000 Minnie Winnie with a 16 foot awning and it is getting to the point where the awning will need to be changed soon. I'm doing research to see if it might be a job I'd do myself. If you have completed a new awning installation: 1. On a scale of 1-5, how hard?, 2. What are some things I would need to watch out for?, and 3. How long did the job take with how many people?. If you decided to have a business do the change out, what was the deciding factor.

Question on above ground swimming pool.....

We are considering a small (12-15 foot circular) above ground pool for the yard and Doughboy is at the top on our short list. They are higher in price. Are they worth it? Is something else close? Thanks!

RE: Make tape job look better

I've been considering the same option Bill. Have dealt with cabover leaks since I bought Winnie 3 years ago. I've enjoyed her through 23 states and over 20,000 miles and will continue to enjoy. While I have Eternabond on the roof seams, I have considered exactly the option you are discussing. Would appreciate photos. THANKS!

RE: Make tape job look better

Bill242, I've been considering the same option. While I am not that concerned of looks, I would like to see photos. THANKS!
