RE: I Hate the Heat

The earth has been on a warming trend since the last ice age, want proof? we ain't covered with ice. How hot must it get before the trend reverses and we start to cool? no body knows. But remember there is vegetation under the polar ice caps. Please folks, lets don't get political. Theres some good info coming from this thread. Thanks to all of you!

I Hate the Heat

Where do you fulltimers that hate the heat go in the summer? Up in elevation and latitude I get, but anything more specific would be appreciated. We like the NW coast, MI's UP and high in the Rockies.

RE: Restrictions on older RVs.

I think its just a rule on the books that can be enforced if a crappy looking rig/owner wants to stay there. If you look good, you're fine. If you look like a rolling meth lab, you get shown The Rule and asked to move on. And I'm fine with that.

RE: Good Sam - what's in it for the campgrounds?

That's true, angry users are much more likely to post a review than happy ones. I recall a rule of thumb from my long ago business law class: one angry customer will undo the good will of 19 happy ones. Anyway that's why I read online reviews with care to try to get a balanced judgement. + now you have to cope with fake reviews both pro and con. And I might add, I don't see how anyone would like to be steered by google. I want the facts on every CG, ideally.

RE: Rockwood Mini lite 2109S

Had a 189S one time. Good lightweight TT. Typical build quality, meaning look it over GOOD before signing. I'd do it again if it fit my needs.

About that shortcut.....

RE: Lance roof noise?

Interesting post. I had never thought about it as I personally find the rain on my TT roof to be relaxing. I bet that they are pretty much all the same.

RE: Recommend me a Vacume Food Bagger

Vacuum Depends on which country you are in.

RE: How do you store your power supply extension cord

I use the bucket method for my drinking water hose and hose attachments. For the electrical, I just throw it into the back of the truck bed if we are changing CGs, or roll it up for the pass thru storage compartment for longer term. All extensions I keep rolled up and zip tied in the pass thru until needed. Interesting to see how different folks approach the problem.

RE: Good Sam - what's in it for the campgrounds?

westernrvparkowner, I just want to say Thanks for your posting on this site. In my year at this site, I have found your responses are always informative and to the point. Your perspective as a CG owner is also valuable to us. Keep up the good work.

RE: Expert suggestions for cyber security

If you're just browsing and streaming, you don't need a VPN. ^^^ This. ^^^ If you are pirating or torrenting, you will want a VPN tho. There are several good ones, tho know that all of them seem to ebb and flow over the months- good one month, not working the next. I'd stay with the big names (google and youll get a good feel for them) until you know more about the process. I've had success with Nord and Proton.

RE: Recommend me a Vacume Food Bagger

Thanks for all the ideas and recommendations, folks. I had read some reviews on the Food Saver site that were very uncomplimentary and wasn't sure what to believe. Seems like anymore, rivals and paid 'reviewers' will give out bad reviews just to confuse folks. Its getting harder to know what you can believe. (but kudos to FS for leaving up bad reviews- most places just delete them)

RE: RV toilet paper

I see no difference except the price, for me the harder the paper the better;) Somewhere a hemorrhoid surgeon is smiling and thinking about his soon to be motorcoach. ;)

RE: Is this normal for a 30 amp breaker

Related story: While investigating empty spaces in my TT, I found that a hot wire was not even screwed into a 20A breaker. It was just bent in such a way as to make frictional contact. That's a fire waiting to happen even in a stationary home. Pulled the breaker and found why it was that way. I couldn't get the screw to move so that it would accept the wire. It was frozen in place from the breaker manufacturer. So instead of picking up another breaker, some Forest River worker decided to take the easy way out and put me at risk. I took the breaker to my small town dealer's service manager and even with his tools, he couldn't get it loose either. Would love to meet the guy who installed it ftf.

RE: Lubricating manual tongue jack - it binds

Use a penetrating light oil to start with and give it some time to work its magic.

Recommend me a Vacume Food Bagger

In the market to buy a good one to bag up some meals for the trips. Also want to bag up a few other items as emergency kits for the TV. All suggestions, stories, and smart remarks are appreciated. TIA!

RE: Theft from dealership

If I bought a new RV they would be more then welcome to keep the torture device they call a mattress. I have bought several new RV'S and have yet to leave the dealership with the mattress. They can have the garbage tv as well. I can't understand why anyone would even want this stuff let alone stealing it. Same here on the mattress. He'd fit right in with the CW bunch I dealt with at the Knoxville branch. The sales mgr was also the one who tried to physically intimidate me into buying a TT. But yeah. theres not enough Personal Responsibility in the world today.

RE: RV toilet paper

A quick search shows Georgia-Pacific is on a list of companies that support right-wing causes and should be boycotted. I guess it does make sense that a discussion about toilet paper should morph straight into politics :B. Dave^^^^^^^winna!^^^^^^^

RE: Do we or don't we?

Talk with your insurance agent about what your medical costs will be. And for god's sake, don't believe financial advice from strangers on the internet. Just use us for ideas that you can investigate further. Everyone has different circumstances, but from what you have said, (imo) holding out to Medicare age could really make a difference in your cash flow.

RE: rv registration

I know that some states have such laws, but taxing a non-land/real estate property year after year just seems so...............socialist.
