RE: Cuts to the Senior discount coming?

After reading though some thoughts here, I can only add this, if you happen to fall within a geographic group, whether private or public, and they offer a discount of any kind and you quality for said discount, you can chose to fall on your sword and not take it. I will take it every time, not because I feel entitled to it but simply because its offered. I see absolutely nothing wrong in asking anyone/anywhere about whether a discount is available(Military, senior, AAA, AARP, Good Sam etc etc)… Now with that being said, attempting to use a Federal or State camping discount is almost impossible in regards to actually camping(I don't even try) although I do use my Senior Pass for entrance into National Parks and so forth.

RE: Almost lost a mud flap...

There must be some truth in what Dennis had related...I know my MH not only has the dually Mud flaps on both sides but if debris gets by them, the full length flap at the rear of the coach handles the rest. Even with that being said, many years ago, I ran over one of those "bases" (black plastic base) for a traffic cone...picked that sucker up, went past both mud flaps, hit my guardian tow shield, cracked that, then took off my toad's driver side mirror.

RE: Urine odor eliminator

May as well shut this down....I thank the one person who offered a "product" To the "Holy than thou" remainder, think about every time you see multiple dogs in an X-Pen, think about the hours on end those dogs spend in that pen and urinate then think about how many "considerate" people actually care about odors at all and then finally think about someone who had enough concern to ask about a way to help!!!

RE: Urine odor eliminator

The whole point here is that I'm trying tom be a good neighbor....getting a walker out the door at 3am is a bit of an issue. The smell is NOT overwhelming but as always I'm considering my neighbor. I've been on this Forum a very long time and it is just SO typical to criticize rather than simply answer a question. Do I really have to lay out exactly what health conditions are involved everytime I ask a question. Certainly it would be better to have my dogs piss on your campsite but I don't imagine that would be acceptable either so instead, I keep them in the site I occupy(which I do consider my site). You don't see me complaining about the Cigarette butts laying all over, the chicken wings in the gravel waiting for a dog to choke on...Come on, Really!!! So Pile ON....but understand there are plenty of X pens out there and if you think my dogs are the only ones....wake up!!!

Urine odor eliminator

OK...I see plenty of products for this, just looking for suggestions for the right one? BUT before that let me explain....with four small doggies, we normally set up a rather large X-pen under our awning. When the kids get the urge at 2 or 3 am in the morning, we generally open the door and let them run out into the pen and do their thing. Well after a few nights of this, our patio area begins to smell. We have in the past used vinegar to help neutralize the urine but we'd be interested in other products that would help. A quick look on Amazon shows a ton of choices...any favorites? TIA

RE: Almost lost a mud flap...

I had a very similar experience except with a bit of a twist. We stopped at a Rest area and I also noticed that my rear passenger side Mud flap was somehow wrapped up around the tire into the wheel well. I played hell trying to pull it back down into place(the mud flaps are a bit cumbersome and stiff). I finally was able to do it and move on down the road. Now here's the twist....about 1000 miles later while looking again, the center tread had separated from my inside dual(completely gone) which was the cause of the Mud Flap incident. The tire itself was still holding pressure but entire center tread was gone! I now make sure I look carefully at my tires and not only for correct pressure.

RE: Weight Dist Hitch

This is what I've been thinking too. For peace of mind would be reason enough for me. Also, as I recall, he did say he paid 20 bucks for the 2" sleeve...mmm? Thank You all...

Weight Dist Hitch

Hi all, just asking for a friend, He just retired and bought a new 3/4 ton Dodge Ram diesel and a new 37' heavy travel trailer. The truck has a 2 1/2 inch receiver hitch, the trailer dealer installed a sleeve to accept a 2 inch shank on the weight distributing hitch. Looking at it, it, the sleeve seems to add enough play to cause the hitch tilt downward some....just doesn't look right to me and I know they make 2 1/2" shanks so as to not defeat the purpose of the 2 1/2"receiver hitch. Trailer weight is in the 10,000-11,000 range. Just wondering about the consensus on this, whether it really matters?

RE: New GPS needed

I've had the Rand McNally RV GPS since inception. I have updated it several times via lifetime maps. I know this sounds like an endorsement but alas, its not. Although I continue to use it, for some reason, even after you input you are trailering, it cannot get the speed limit correct for Calif. I've notified them on a couple of occasions but anyone who lives in CA knows that no matter what you trailer, the speed limit is 55mph period. Oh well....just thought I'd throw that out there!! LOL

RE: 1st time boondocking and could not get our AC to work

Just a thought, if your running the generator early before turning the air on, start the Gen just a little earlier to allow your battery charger to top off your batteries so that when you start the air, the draw from the battery charger won't be as great. Plus the added benefit of having charged batteries. Did someone mention this already?

RE: 'What can you fill a barrel with to make it weigh less/'

Darn it, I thought maybe this question was about which weights more 100 lbs of feathers or 100 lbs of water? Oh well!!! :-)

RE: Floor damage - water rot - What can I do!

I've had the unfortunate pleasure of working on this exact problem a couple of times in a Motorhome. I can't speak to the design in a tent trailer but the fix I did last time was a winner. I did not pull all the furnishings out to accomplish the task although I was able to expose at least two metal cross members in which to start the mending process. Pull out as much rotten wood as possible, in a tent camper removing large items and cabinets may be an easier task? Make a long story short, I used steel uni strut along with dimensional lumber as my new outriggers thus eliminating all sag. Laid down exterior plywood(3/4" in my case) and since I was going to tile some area's, I put Hardy board down in other area's I used wood flooring. Six years later and all is still SOLID with no cracked time.

RE: We Boost and 5 G?

I think I pretty well knew that I could go with the WE-Boost and be happy for many years with 4G....heck, I was late getting 4G. Thanks for the info!

We Boost and 5 G?

As usual I am late to the Party but as I consider finally getting a proper Cell phone booster for those times when needed, I am now hesitant because of the upcoming 5G frequencies. I've got the standard answer from the manufacturer that, "in a nut shell", we are still years away but I figured I'd ask the experts whether one should wait for what's coming or just take the plunge now and get whatever number of years I can out of the current level of service? Thanks as always...

RE: A poll: What does 2 blinks of the left signal mean to you?

Maybe checking to see how much 'turn signal fluid' is left in the car... The best answer so far!!! I never have to worry about this while in our RV and if I did, it would take me two miles to pass!

RE: Trip from West Coast around the US

Leaving Labor Day....best to hit as many National Parks up North first before weather keeps you out...Glacier, Yellowstone and Grand Tetons would be my first thought. Wow, so many things to see and do...Mount Rushmore, The Badlands, The Sturgis motorcycle rally will be over but its still worth a look. It seems campground wise, that if you find an area you want to spend some time in, then reservations may be in order...on the other hand, your traveling after school is back in session and the weather is cooling, so availability for sites without reservations would be favorable. I think I'd wing it! You can do your research on down days of your trip for upcoming towns, cities, states depending on your route...I guess that means internet access via cell phone or Wi-fi. Easy enough to check each states highlights by doing a google search. I'd also suggest traveling some of the back roads as long as you have proper maps/GPS telling of restrictions on certain roads. Stay off the Brooklyn Bridge in New York and the Parkways....don't ask why I know! Sounds like a Great trip...have room for me? LOL

RE: Black tank splash shield problem

Just for kicks, do you use LOTS of water when flushing the throne! Not speaking of while cleaning but rather in just the everyday flushing the toilet. I know I will always fill the bowl fairly well before stepping on the pedal to flush. I realize if you are someplace without sewer then doing this might fill the tanks quickly.

RE: Table Rock Lake, Mo

I have to say after seeing your pictures I went to check out the campgrounds surrounding Table Rock Lake on the WEB....all I can say is WOW, very nice areas and sites. Next time in the area, I'll have to check them out more.

RE: surgegard issue

I agree with the above info...I sometimes have to step on mine also and it is about 13 years old so I'm thankful that its still a tight fit. I normally leave my connected to the cord.

RE: Surge Protector

Why would you just not keep the 50 amp model...you know it will work on a 30 amp pedestal? Right? It will!!! I've had mine for about 12 years!!!
