RE: RV awning cleaning

I had gypsy moth dung covering my awning after my last outing. Simple Green didn't touch it. Still looked horrible. I bought this Thetford Awning Cleaner, and it is nearly perfect. Still a few minor spots, but DW says it looks like new, so my job here is done. Find yourself some and enjoy more beer time. https://www.thetford.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/product_awning_cleaner-e1426792141687-177x235.jpg

RE: Water Filter Cartridge Replacement

Just curious everyone's opinion on this... Is it better to put a carbon or charcoal filter right at the cold water line to the sink instead of filtering all of the water going to the coach? Does it make the filter last longer? Who needs good tasting toilet water?

RE: Cool Mods Search

I saw your question as sort of a contest to find the best way to search a single post. I entered the contest, but sadly, I failed. It certainly poses an interesting challenge, though, and I'll keep an eye in this to see if anyone comes up with a solution. However, I frequently search the whole site for certain search terms because you just never know where some people might thing to post things. So for this, it's best to let Google do the heavy lifting, something like this: your search terms site:www.rv.net/forums edit... I have to admit, I think someone did a "roll your own message board" with this site. I've never seen another like it, and even my bolded example above came out formatted with a smiley that I didn't put there. Why can't they just use vBulletin like the rest of the world.

RE: new mattress needed, any reason to buy from camping world?

I suspect a bed upgrade is in my near future. Our TT has a king bed. Before I go too far down this path, will a king mattress fit through the door? Thx!

RE: CC&R dated 1973 says no RVs, trailers, boats can be stored

After speaking with the code enforcement division, and the city planner, there is no CITY code I would be violating at this particular residence, parking the dutchstar the way I have indicated, which is, on the concrete pad that is to the left of the house along the side of the property and behind the gate. You're confusing two issues. Most municipalities do not enforce CC&R's. What you need from local codes isn't about enforcement but the definition of "parking" and "storage". Like AZ, NM also uses the "common meaning as defined by local authority". Even if the city or county has no rules on the RV, their definition of parking and storage would apply to the CC&Rs absent any specific wording in the CC&Rs. The 1973 CC&R document has not been updated since 1975 and indicates that it lasts 20 years. In which at that time "Auto renews" for 10 year successions unless there is a vote by the land owners to discontinue the CC&Rs or a portion of it. So, by that definition, the CC&R's are still valid, but there is no forum held to discuss the continuance or discontinuance of the rules or any part of the rules. You're again confusing two issues. The CC&R are valid and enforceable per NMS Chapter 47. Absent any wording in the CC&R as to the abolishing or amending the CC&R, it resorts to the property owners to obtain a court acceptable agreement to eliminate or change the CC&R. Just because it's not written in the CC&R doesn't mean they can't be enforced through a private lawsuits. Any property owner can sue any other property owner for violating the CC&R. Based on NM case law, unless the the violation is against good public order, the courts generally uphold the CC&Rs. You can't change the rules because there is no forum held to update/change/delete any of the rules, so they just kinda go on and on. Yes you can. NM Statutes say you have to obtain an agreement by the majority of property owners to change the CC&R if there is nothing in the document establishing a formal mechanism. A property owner opposed to the change can sue you and it would require a Judge to review the agreement and if the majority agreed to the change, it's changed. The process and procedures is a bit sketchy but there is ample cases in NM on this and your lawyer should be able to walk you through the process. If there have been repeated, continuous and open violations with no enfacement, it appears that will go greatly in your favor if you sue to abolish or are sued to enforce the restriction. The easiest seems to come down to someone writing a formal document that the the majority agrees on and it survives any opposing court challenge. I was just getting ready to type up a lengthly reply with much of this same info, but Itsy beat me to it and saved me some typing (thanks, Itsy!) How do I know? I just went through all of this myself. Each property owner has the right to enforce CC&Rs or deed restrictions. Just because there are a couple examples of violations, just means that those violations do not bother anyone enough to bring a suit against them. But if you violate across the street from someone who is particularly bothered by your violation, there is nothing stopping them from suing you. Now if there are many violations throughout the neighborhood, you can use that in your defense, and it will be up to the judge to determine if all of the existing violations suitably outweigh your neighbor's right to enforce the rules. Basically, fighting against this by a blatant violation and "seeing what happens" is risky. I'd think you'd be better off getting the required number of signatures to change or dissolve the CC&Rs. Or go move elsewhere. Best of luck to you, though. I do feel your pain.

RE: GC2 which?

Battery weight is related to capacity more than anything else. When I replaced my GC2 pair I got Deka. which at the time was 100% US made (East Penn battery Company) The ones I picked were a bit heavier than the Interstates they replaced and thus held more watts (Amp Hours) Page 2.... There are very few companies making batteries. .Many batteries are Deka's or US Battery or Johnson Control re-labeled. and you can google to find out which. Yes, it's true, there are not a lot of lead acid battery manufacturers anymore. However, just because one manufacturer makes battery "A" and battery "B" means they are the same. One brand may specify better materials and more robust manufacturing procedures, but another may cut corners, and both can run down the same line. Sometimes, you really do get what you pay for, other times you are just paying for a name brand. It's hard to tell these days.
