RE: OT house winterizing in Las Vegas?

It's like a tract home but spelled differently. What would we do without our spelling and grammar monitors?

RE: I Overdosed on Niacin Yesterday

Current research has shown Niacin in any dosage has not shown to be beneficial for lowering cholesterol or protecting your heart. My cardiologist told me to stop taking it. Your doctor is correct. Niacin does not "lower" cholesterol. It has been proven to raise HDL. For some of us, that can be more important than lowering overall cholesterol numbers. If you already have HDL numbers in an acceptable range you would see little benefit from taking niacin and only add to the risk for your liver from any statin drug you might be on.

RE: I Overdosed on Niacin Yesterday

I was put on an 8000mg/day(that's not a misprint!) dosage of niacin by the University of San Francisco Medical Center. Niacin helps to increase HDL cholesterol. You have to build to it slowly to be able to take those quantities and have regular liver tests to check for damage. It did raise my HDL but not in sufficient quantity to justify taking that much niacin. I now take slo-niacin 750mg twice per day. I'm not suggesting anyone take anything without consulting their doctor first, I'm just saying that an accidental large dose of niacin will probably do nothing more than give you the biggest flush and itching you've ever had. Water intake helps to flush it thru your system. When you have a coronary bypass at age 26 you become a guinea pig for the doctors...I've tried it ALL!

RE: Baking muffins in rv oven for the first time...gasp!

We put our pizza stone on the solid metal shelf below the wire cooking rack. Just don't cover the holes in the solid shelf. I got a square that fits perfect from California Pizza Stones. Big difference.

RE: Got it narrowed down to a few, opinions please.......

First trailer had one door. New trailer has two. Would never go back to one. Like the idea of lifetime warranty but how much does yearly inspection cost? I have a Forest River and am happy but if you have the TV to handle the tongue weight the Open Range it sure looks nice to me. Good luck with whatever you decide. Happy camping!

RE: Propane level gauge-do I need one in each tank??

Saw a video on these the other day. Sound good but yet I hear they are calibrated for a 20# tank and anything above is a little bit off. Too expensive for me, I wait till one tank runs out, switch tanks and refill empty. Indicator on regulator cross-over is enough for me. tank sensors

RE: Quartzsite make you sick?

We live in California's central valley. Due to the constant tilling of soil for farming here we have very high levels of dust particles in our air. Valley Fever is quite common. I have lived here for over 40 years and this is the first time I've heard about it in dogs. Thanks for the info rockhillmanor! We have a lot of people with chest congestion right now, but not sure if it's from VF. We do have a high fungus count due to all the rain. Very interesting reading.

RE: Help Needed to pair new Tahoe w/ TT

My son in law had about the same setup. Pure white knuckle driving. Took most of the fun out of each trip worrying about the drive there and then home. You need more tow vehicle.

RE: Deep Cycle Battery???

I've been looking for a true deep cycle 12v battery also. If you have a US Battery distributor near you they have a 24DC XC2 that sounds like it will work. They also have a group 27 and 31.

RE: Sacramento,Ca to Fishing bridge, Yellowstone

Thanks We had thought about road closures due to snow right now and maybe that's why the app won't route me that way. I'll check out park maps as suggested. Still in planning stages. Mid to late Aug. there are still sites at Fishing Bridge. We'll see!

Sacramento,Ca to Fishing bridge, Yellowstone

When I use google maps to try and plan a route from Sac., CA to Fishing Bridge the planner either sends me thru the Grand Tetons or to West Yellowstone and then up into Montana and around to the east entrance to get to Fishing Bridge. Can Fishing Bridge be reached from the West entrance? I want to go thru the Grand Tetons on the way home.

RE: Printing Problems

I just set up my daughters new computer with an HP6510 printer. She had print problems so we went to HP's website and downloaded the latest version of software for win 10 and that cleared up all her problems on Edge, Firefox or Chrome. Worked for her....

RE: OTA TV reception at "Q"

No such thing as a digital antenna. Roy Kens Batwing setup would be my choice for OTA

RE: About to retire but need some advice

I figure volunteering for 2-3 months at a time up to 6 months a year will allow me to travel the rest of the time. I also know I am much more productive on days that I HAVE to get up and get going. I tend to vegetate if I don't have a reason to get out and go/do. I have spent the last 20+ years volunteering with youth organizations while working full time, so volunteering is not a stretch for me and I love state parks. It sounds to me that in your situation and for you that would work out great. Any way you decide to do it I wish you a happy and fun filled retirement. We have worked long enough, it time to work less and enjoy more. Best of luck to you! P.S. after reading 2gypsies post about volunteering I have a different outlook on that. That even sounds like it could be a full filling adventure for us. Thank you for a different perspective.
