RE: Revenge is mine, says the buffalo herd...

We got surrounded by bison in Yellowstone last month for about 30 minutes but we were on our Harley not in the RV. No where to hide either on the Harley or off. Just held our breath, stayed quiet and didn't make eye contact.

RE: Replace RV Refrigerator with Residental Model

RF18HFENBSR 33"-Wide, 18 cu. ft. Counter Depth French Door Refrigerator from Lowes - $1466 back in 2015. Installed ourselves with help from friends. Had to take new refrigerator apart to get through front door. Removed passenger seat to give us more room to get the fridge inside.

RE: Windows 10 Update - Frozen at Downloading 100%

original poster here. I shut it down after another 2 hours. Started the download up again this morning for about 1.5 hour, then shut it down again to hit the road. Started it up again just before 3 p.m.. Finished downloading in 10 minutes, then took 3 hours to install with 5 or 6 reboots. Just got up and running and I'm checking things out now.

Windows 10 Update - Frozen at Downloading 100%

how long should I wait to see what happens? I'm downloading the latest update to Windows 10 and it has said Downloading 100% for the last 30 minutes. Any suggestions?

RE: How High???

if you plan to travel into Canada, be sure to add the metric height. Not fun trying to do the conversion in your head after seeing a metric sign about 200 feet before a low overpass.

RE: RVCampsite only 30amp - can we run AC in the Class A

As others have already said, yes you can run one AC with the 30 amp. I see in your signature that you have several pets. I would want to stay around the coach for at least one afternoon before leaving your pets in the coach for an afternoon. Sometimes running on 30 amp can have a learning curve for those who are used to using 50 amp. It is easy to forget to switch the water heater to propane instead of electric, or the fridge may switch back to electric because it hasn't been run on propane for a while, etc. Best to work those things out before leaving the pets.

RE: Where do you Post Campground Reviews?

I've yet to see a good definition of "big rig friendly" that's meaningful. There are sites where a 40' DP can get in, but a 40' 5'ver can't for instance. How would you differentiate those conditions? Agreed but if I see NOT Big Rig Friendly, i.e. Big Rig is NOT checked, then I move on to looking at other campgrounds

RE: Awning retracting

does the awning retract when you shut down the generator if you manually shut down the generator without using the auto start?

RE: Where do you Post Campground Reviews?

I continue to use Campground Reviews, the now more commercialized version of the old RV Park Reviews site. I am comfortable with their rating system, realizing that different people have different standards in their expectations for an RV Park. I have noticed they seem to have less features in their search functions, as others have noted. I swear I could used to call up all the RV parks within a specified number of miles from a given city or town. Feel free to correct me if I am wrong, but I don't seem to be able to call that up any more. Do you use campground reviews to just READ reviews or do you also POST on campground reviews?

RE: Where do you Post Campground Reviews?

I have used Campground reviews for years and continue to do so. I'm puzzled by some of your comment, sewers are addressed below the main comment section. They don't have a Big Rig section but the do have a site type section in the same area as the sewers. Pull Thru, back in ect and sort of address the site length in that same area as well. I don't have a big class A so I'm not as sensitive to that issue. Their search capability isn't so good and actually seems to be worse than it was in the old format. So they really need to work on that. Isn't RVParky a pay site. I have continued with CGRev for that very reason rather than a pay site like All Stays. While I'm all for capitalism, I resist working for free on a non-free site. As you say, the information regarding Sewer, Big Rig, etc is available on the website but only after you look at the individual campgrounds; you can't search and only see those campgrounds that fit your search criteria. I am able to use RVParky with my laptop without a charge.

Where do you Post Campground Reviews?

I have been posting reviews on Campground Reviews for many years but lately I have been frustrated by the lack of a good filters for features like Big Rig Friendly, Sewer, etc on that website. I have been patiently waiting for them to resolve the search feature for several years now since they "improved" their website, but I have started to use RVParky much more frequently because the filters and maps are so much more helpful. It does seem like Campground Reviews has more reviews so I'll flip back to that after I find some campgrounds of interest. So my question to those of you who POST reviews, not just read them, where do you post your reviews? One or the other, or both or somewhere else? Thank you for your time.

RE: Leverlers

Never leave tires in the air. Install some boards or blocks under the tires and then relevel the RV. If you have 1 jack leak down and that corner drops too far it will twist the chassis and torque the frame and possibly crack a windshield. Doug excellent point.

RE: Do I need to replace converter? What is the issue?

by the way, if you unhook the battery, take photos of how it is hooked up before removing it so you don't cause bigger issues by rehooking it up incorrectly.

RE: Do I need to replace converter? What is the issue?

After you rule out the fuses in the converter, I would take the battery to an auto parts store and have it load tested. If the battery is shot, it may still read as being 75%, 90% or etc charged charged but will not hold that charge under a load.

RE: Verizon mifi issue. Verizon of no help.

I would try using my smart phone as a hot spot about 9:30 or so before you have a problem with the jetpack. See if they both have problems at the same time or if it is only the Jetpack. That could tell you if it is the jetpack or the local tower.
