RE: Drawing water from a lake

So no one on this thread watched "The Last Alaskans"? People on there draw and drink water from lakes and rivers all the time. OH, that proves it. to the OP, a great idea to drink your lake water. bumpy:W

RE: Installing a clean out at home

I think I agree with WPT-GC. If you hire a contractor to install per code and pull a permit, it is up to the contractor to do it right. OK to ask about placement but let the contractor do the job you hired him to do and the inspector to aprove the work. Maybe in a perfect world, but contractors are notorious for doing shoddy work, skipping out half way through a job, not being there when things go wrong. As far as 'to code', just remember that is the MINIMUM quality that is acceptable by a government bureaucracy, written by politicians who have NO mechanical, engineering or construction skills and lobbied by unions that are paid only to protect their members, not the clients who hire them.Kind of like the contractor who told me that he didn't need a permit to install a new front door on my house - in FL, you do. Good thing I knew what questions to ask, otherwise I'd be on the hook to get it done correctly. Contractors who care about doing a good job correctly and pulling proper permits are becoming a rare breed. Ever been inside a newly built house? OP asked some good questions - nothing wrong with doing some research.

I'm betting Oklahoma has some awesome places to camp - good luck!

RE: Vegas food

The cheap is all but gone. The one consistency in Las Vegas is the Casinos are going to go where the money is. At one time it was the Gambler. That was when the price of everything else was between free and nearly free. Then the non gambling crowd caught on to the bargains for lodging, food and entertainment and the casinos started housing and feeding people who weren't gambling, so that went away. The next reincarnation was family fun. Thankfully, that didn't last too long. Within a decade or so it was gone. Next came the nightclubs and pool parties. Brought a lot of people, but didn't fill the coffers with cash. Today it is entertainment at full prices. The hotels, the restaurants, the shows and everything else are top dollar. The hotels tack on $30 to $50 "resort fees" on top of the room rate. The top shows are $100+ per seat. If you are a big player, everything can be comped, but don't expect to find a good steak and lobster dinner for $10 on the strip. You can still find a few of those in the way off the beaten path, tired and old properties, but it won't be fine dining at prime hours.This sums it up rather nicely. Good - cheap buffet style food is a thing of the past. Now the food service industry is catering to non gambling tourists. Restaurants like PF Changs are available - the one in Vegas has a great view, but prices are double compared to the one we have locally. While good food can be found, it certainly is no longer cheap.

RE: Magnetic Cam Locks???

Has anyone tried replacing their CH751 on their storage compartments with magnetic cam locks? https://shoprvlocks.com/product/magnetic_lock/ They claim to be pick proof, but that isn't why they interest me. The CH751 locks on my storage compartment are a PITA to use. The key doesn't slide in as easy as it should and the locks are very stiff. These look like they will hold up well, the weather (ice and snow) and dirt should not be able to jam them....at least that's what they claim. I fully recognize that the storage compartments can be easily broken into with a pry-bar or larger screw driver, but they are better than nothing. At least with these locks, I'll at least be able to open them up without fighting with the CH751 key.Looking at them, I can agree that the won't get water or dirt in them - there is no hole for it to go through. Pick proof though? Seems like anyone with a magnet could open them. Maybe before spending 23 bucks apiece for them, you could try keeping the current locks lubricate by using powdered graphite to lubricate the lock cylinder. If you buy them, post back about what you think of them. Good luck

RE: Mosquitos

We set up our chairs under the awning and put an oscillating fan in between them. Bugs are seldom an issue.

RE: Your first post on the forum

Here is mine posted on my join date. The flimsy plastic license plate holders that hang down from the tail light had broken off. Fixed by using U-bolts to hold the plate on the bumper. Never got a ticket for a non lighted plate - thank goodness.

RE: New Coleman Travel Trailer AC issue

Your lucky - my first TT was a Coleman, and the first night camping in the Florida summer, the AC shorted out and filled the TT with smoke. Turned out the installers just jammed wires into a ball and something shorted.

RE: Progressive RV Insurance

Thanks from me as well - going to give them a call as my policy at National General just had a rate increase. Guy I called there to inquire thought he was doing me a big favor by getting quotes from other carriers - all of which were higher that theirs.

RE: The RV Industry Association (RVIA)

I don't read that website. I don't read the RVIA. But its highly doubtful that this guy which you so affectionately admire had any meaningful impact on the quality and workmanship of the RV manufacturers. He likely didn't help create any greater number of campgrounds or significantly improve the experience of any RVer. Like many websites, it looks like he just aggregates data from other sources and re-posts. Nothing wrong with that, and I certainly don't knock him for doing something that he enjoys... But there's not anything meaningful there to be missed.I too could care less. The RV industry is big business - mostly in the business of putting the screws to consumers. Maybe it needs to be regulated - maybe it needs lemon laws. But none of that is going to happen because elected officials are getting their pockets filled. One guy squaking about it on an unknown website isn't going to change anything - just gives some forum posters less content to dig up and uselessly re-hash. The comment " it looks like he just aggregates data from other sources and re-posts" strikes home here on RV.net it seems. This guy is just a feather that finally got blown away.

RE: Giant Recreation World in Fl. Wadda ya think

Thanks for the replies. I think if I could find someone to do what they require for $50-$75 it might be worth it but I agree. $300 is a bit steep, especially in the first couple of years when there is a factory warantee in place. The camping club sounds kinda nice thoughFor more reason not to trust CW, read this post. I took my last TT to them for service under warranty. They lost it - turns out someone towed it to the used lot and people were going through it thinking it was for sale. I needed a part for my friction sway bar. Was told they don't sell just that part, but gee, we will sell you a brand new one. Did some research, and found the part at Etrailer.com.

RE: 2nd AC unit worth it?

I have a 303RLS and we negotiated price based on installing the front bedroom AC. Get the one with the thermostat - but make sure that the thermostat is not installed in the path of the cool air flow. Definitely need it camping in the Florida summers.

RE: Cleaning Question

I backed the truck up, lowered the tailgate and put my step ladder in the bed. Works great until you look down.
