RE: Would this bother you?

If he hadn't moved my storage bins so he could get his slide on my space, I probably would let the back slide go. Oh no he didn't!! I missed this part somehow. He doesn't get to rearrange any of the items within the parameters of your space in order to accommodate his encroachment. At this point I'd either read the encroacher the riot act or I'd threaten to sue the manager and facility for breaching the contract. What is it with so many freaks and their over blown sense of entitlement??

RE: Would this bother you?

Tell the manager that you want a generous reduction in cost of rent since you do not have unfettered access to your RV.

RE: Would this bother you?

Agree. Notify management. Things could escalate so you really don't need / want to get into a 1 on 1 confrontation. Besides, this guy may have had complaints lodged against him before that management knows about. Hand it over to them. Get it resolved before you get your Class A.

RE: How far to travel with only 2 weeks vacation time/year

Personally, since it's fixed, I tend to use time vs. distance as my deciding factor. When I have a time limit and no specific plans, I choose a direction and head out. Once I reach 1/2 the amount of time allotted, I turn around and head back, often on a different route.

RE: Former or Inactive members

SPOILER ALERT Unpopular response coming on: Despite my profile, I have been here since '02 (Another story) In those 13 years I have had many lengthy absences, one as long as 9 months. Despite my profile, I have been here since 2001. I rarely comment, although I have been a bit more verbal in the past few months or so. I've learned a ton from the contributors on the rv.net fora, for which I am ever grateful. I've also been able to pay it forward in many situations, and that has been very gratifying. People move on; give up RVing; interests change; lifestyles change; medical and other life altering experiences come to the fore; some change their forum nicknames; others participate passively - reading without commenting; while some may feel they have shared all they have to share and anyone interested can use the search function to find answers to their queries. I'm sure there are also those who burned out on the "p1ss1ng contests". I mean to say, there are as many reasons as there are people.

RE: Tiny coffee maker and toaster

Found an easy compact item to make coffee,.... A note regarding the Melitta type cone, collapsible or not: After placing the filter in the cone and adding the dry coffee, pour just enough water to cover the grounds. This saturates and "opens" up the grounds. That water will also wick up the filter a bit and keeps the sides of the paper filter from collapsing into the wet grounds. After the initial water drips out, continue adding the amount of water that will fill your cup. I use the brown filters vs. the white ones because ... no bleach. Edited to explain: I added this comment because several have complained about the paper filters in their Melitta cones collapsing.

RE: 5 things we don't love about our RV

Would be nice to have: - Adjustable steering wheel - Driver seat swivel - Inset base (even a protruding one would do!) for table leg near passenger/driver seats - Removable exterior snap-in-place solid vent covers for refrig and coffee pot, otherwise rain foods in behind the refrigerator. - More insulation - Additional water pump switch in the bathroom - Additional genset on/off at dashboard - Three extra inches added to width so I can sleep on the couch width-wise vs. making the bed to sleep lengthwise - Galley drawers and upper cabinet designed with function-over-form vs. form-over-function - 4 to 5 more inches of ground clearance so I can at least poke my head under the chassis to give it a once over Otherwise, I love, love, love my RV! Seriously.

RE: Wet Rain Coats...

Thanks for your ideas. Still not sure how to get the wet stuff to the shower without soaking the carpet. I guess a line of towels?? Plastic garden bag at the entry? Insert gear. Carry to shower/bathroom. At least you won't have more wet stuff to dry, i.e. towels from covering the carpet.

RE: Foot not big enough

Pedal Mate Pedal Extenders Take a look at these. BINGO!

RE: Wet Rain Coats...

I added a tension shower curtain rod to the wet bath. Wet gear gets hung on plastic hangers and then hung on the tension rod. I also use it to hang wet towels, dish cloths, and the occasional wet shoes and socks.

RE: Foot not big enough

Put an extension on the pedal to better fit your foot. An addition could be made with a lip to support your foot and could be made so that it is removable for other drivers. X2 The extension blocks are commercially available. I have two acquaintances who have added the extensions; one for her SUV, and the other for her Class A.

RE: Poor, poor, pitiful me

You're not required to sacrifice your own adventures in order to be available / present as audience / celebrant for the adventures of others! Go for it!!

RE: ever feel like we need some Japanese RV manufactures

But do consider, these campers ARE made in America, keeping a work force employed. As well as keeping the people who get stuck with poor quality rigs employed just to keep up with the repairs...

RE: Help? My charger killed two laptops!

Try booting the laptop, plugged in, with the battery removed.
