RE: How wide do mirrors need to be for a TT?

It's not likely to come up, but mirrors that don't comply with the law (or common sense even) might just attract unwanted attention, such LEO, your insurance co. or a lawyer, in case anything ever went wrong, or someone was having a bad day. Also, bear in mind, mirrors are an 'equipment' requirement and as such are NOT covered by reciprocity, you must comply with each state you drive in. Mirrors used for rear viewing are specifically "safety equipment" and not just "assist equipment" like a back-up camera. As such, any safety equipment (headlights fall under this as well) comes under federal jurisdiction and the DOT and they won't differ from state to state. It's interesting to note that a passenger side-view mirror is not required unless the inside rearview mirror is obscured or blocked. https://www.nhtsa.gov/sites/nhtsa.dot.gov/files/documents/tp-111-v01-final_tag.pdf The move among manufacturers now is to switch to a camera system for all rear viewing and eliminate mirrors completely. "Also, bear in mind, mirrors are an 'equipment' requirement and as such are NOT covered by reciprocity, you must comply with each state you drive in." Oh ****, now when you cross state lines you need to pull out a rulebook and may need to swap out your mirrors for a different type of design. Who enforces this? The reflection Police?

RE: Azdel or not?

I was initially convinced that the Azdel was the only way to go until I learned it was almost exclusively used only on sidewalls. Since delam on a back wall is as bad as delam on a side wall I decided to disregard the presence or absence of Azdel as a deciding factor. Just my 2 cents. Rear walls are usually only a sheet of filon with no backing substrate. All that holds the filon in pace is the corner trim, roof trim, and apron trim at the bottom and a window if it has one. It just hangs there. Thats why you see waves in rear walls of TT's and 5ers without caps. Very few manufacturers use a laminated assembly for rear walls. Rockwood/Flagstaff is one of the few.

RE: Any one else giving up snow birding due to the covid

One observation I've made is: why haven't retail, restaurant, and most health-care facilities implemented bipolar ionization technology? It has been implemented successfully at nine major US airport facilities (including one in Canada: Vancouver), and at 6 major US hospitals.... Really, and who exactly pays for all of that? Most restaurants I know of are close to being out of business if they are not already out of business because of shoot from the hip govt edicts handed down with no thought as to the final outcome. Being retired and having the option to hide yourself away, not travel, and limit your interaction with others is slightly different than working for a living where its impossible to do the tasks remotely from home, such as manufacturing or construction.

RE: Picture Posting Test Thread

That site, "photo posting.net" is a malicious one if you believe Norton mobile. Something is wrong with your Norton mobile. There is nothing wrong with our photo posting site and it has been in use for quite some time. I just went there while running my Norton and it is fine. Just to be sure, here is the site I am talking about. Barney https://i.imgur.com/ex8XPwVl.jpg

RE: 1/2 ton truck towing question

Worst case scenario. You have an accident while towing. You insurance company voids your policy because you knowingly modified the vehicle to EXCEED its capacity !!You may be canceled, but it will be after the claim is paid Think about it, you're drunk, hop in your car, hit a telephone pole and cause a couple hundred thousand $ of damage. Your still covered. May get canceled, but it will be after the fact. Insurance companies can't decide just to void your coverage just beacause you do something stupid. If they could, they'd do it every time someone got in a accident. ROFLMAO....yet this BS gets repeated over and over on forums and has since the internet was invented by Al.

RE: Camping World Myrtle Beach

You hear a lot of noise about Camping World stores but if you look at the number of service customers they serve around the country I believe they do a wonderful job for the RV Industry. They must fix thousands of RVs every day. Do the math. The complaints are minuscule. They train their people, they stand behind their work, and my experience across the country is they are a pleasure to work with. They participate in the Industry as a whole. I use them. Ask your self as an RV'r. If they were not there, the industry would far worse off. Just my opinion. They suck in all areas, just my opinion and that of tens of thousands of others who have dealt with them.

RE: Hard to find a full-time spot

With more and more apparently full timing in RVs due to Covid or whatever reason, you can expect more and more local entities to progressively ban the practice. Does anyone really think local govts are going to take chances missing out on tax revenues or are all full timers so honest they search out the tax payment requirements where they're at and March in to pay the pauper?

RE: Any one else giving up snow birding due to the covid

As much as it is killing me to stay home in the cold we will be staying put. Things are changing quickly. It is so bad in some of the hot spots that it would be next to impossible to isolate. If you did get sick the health systems would not be able to handle the volumes of sick people.Anyone thinking of going south should wait and monitor the situation. Maybe it will improve by February. Yep. I hear ya. At our place in Palm Springs California they just went back to purple rating which is not good. All pools and Gyms being closed again in our community there. We are also looking at the Feb time frame now. Our back up plans for the Costa del Sol in Spain are off as it is not going well there either. Trying to get info on how things are going in the canaries but an island is probably not a good place to be stuck if the second wave gets out of hand. Meh. The Chihuahua is curled up in front of the fireplace. He's adapting, I'm sure we can. Maybe need to pick up an extra case of Don Simone to get us through. :) Now that your powers that be in CA have announced they will independently review for safety and approve any developed vaccine which is approved by USDA, the second wave you mention may very well get out of hand. Perhaps CA should secede from the USA and spare the rest of us the drama. An island could be the best place to hunker down forever. I didn't know we were part of America,,,,,, You're not, and apparently THEY'RE not either, which is not surprising in any way shape or form.

RE: Azdel or not?

Azdel has a number of benefits... It is impervious to moisture, will not absorb drop. It its far lighter and stronger than Luan much less the cheaper plywood many manufacturers still use. I would love to believe that statement but I can not find pricing on individual sheets of Azdel for comparison. Far lighter? Its about 1/2 the weight according to the manufacturer. On a TT with a 30' box RV manufacturers such as Coachmen use @ a total of 15 sheets of the stuff overall. 1/8" luan weighs 21 lbs so Azdel weighs @ 10.5 lbs. Do the math, hardly a ground breaker.

RE: Are other drivers killing your RV experience?

I want to thank you all for the great comments here as it has given me a different perspective. I think also having gone thru a lawsuit where a person tried suing me for an undisclosed amount over some actions I took to get him off my property, It caused a lot of distrust with many things in my everyday life around me. As it was I tried to help a guy, but turned out he was only interested in getting a free ride and setting me up to sue me. Pretty evil person in the end trying to provoke me at times. Imagine that going on your own personal property for 3 mos. My Lawyer was Brilliant. Anyhow finally getting an RV trip after all that going on put me in unsure waters for a time, This discussion helps me realize the need to get back in touch with my old self. I think I will and thank you all.Welcome to Hard Knocks U, apparently you got an advanced degree. Anyone planning on becoming a landlord should be required to watch "Pacific Heights". They would quickly see that the deck is stacked against them should a renter turn out to be a villain. My guess is you tried to get the guy to leave by taking what seemed to be reasonable actions above and beyond sending them registered demand and eviction notices. Even a small thing like stopping the yard service or can be construed by a tenant as harassment and don't even think about turning off any utilities or touching anything that could be considered their personal property, junk strewn about the yard included. Don't know what that has to do with driving, other than making you aware that there are people who are bat-she-ite crazy. But that goes back way further than the automobile. I am sure that if people were around during the times of the dinosaurs some would have ridden them down the wrong side of the road. The real moral of this entire thread is the world seems to be turning upside down. Everyday more and more people are expecting the world to adapt to their needs, rather than they adapt to the ways of the world. All I can say is" good luck with that, just don't hold your breath" Depending on the state at the current time, evicting a tenant legally for legitimate reasons could be impossible due to Covid edicts handed down by folks who do not have a dog in the hunt. They're not the ones footing the bills while the tenants get a freebie. There is no shortage of folks riding covid 19 for all its worth. I don't think I have seen this many help wanted signs in my travels ever.

RE: Camping World Myrtle Beach

Even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in awhile. Seriously I have heard good things in the past about that Myrtle beach location. The ones I have attempted to deal with in PA, MD, and VA could not have anything good said about them, they suck.

RE: I'm hooked!

I've stayed on some of the dispersed sites up in Forbes SF in the SW part of the state. One of the recommendations in the PA DCNR long range plan is the elimination of those dispersed sites in the name of conservation. Hopefully it gets shot down. The woman Wolf put in charge of DCNR is an absolute nutball. Thankfully her days are numbered.

RE: Hard to find a full-time spot

I am now in Somerset PA. Nice camp ground and looks like a ton of full timers in one section but the place is supposed to close end of the month. Hickory Hollow. Not full timers, they're seasonals. We used to go there a few yeats back.. At that elevation which is not all that high, something like 2000', you have usually seen the first snowfall by now and you can count on snow on the ground in that area from December to mid April. It is a nice place but is a little too pack em in for my taste.

RE: Fridge warming up overnight

My clip-the-tip still has not arrived. ?? I've been using the fridge as is. It's limping along. Fridge temp goes to the low 30's then sails into the mood to high 40's. What are your thoughts on this temperature pattern: http://cubeupload.com/im/MalibuDave42/Screenshot2020100218.png Where are you and what are the nighttime ambient temps outside? Once they're below 45 and dropping an absorption fridges efficiency drops almost exponentially because it can not generate enough heat. Try putting an incandescent light bulb, preferably 100 watt, in a socket in the lower compartment or block off the lower vent openings one at a time to see if the interior temp drops.

RE: Coachmen Santara Capacities

I just purchased a 2000 Coachmen Santara 370 MB diesel pusher. 350 HP Cummins. It has a 7000 KW Onan gasoline generator. I have downloaded the Owners Manual and searched the Internet to find out the capacities of all of the liquids. Diesel fuel tank, Generator gasoline tank, Fresh water tank, gray water tank, black water tank, propane tank, etc... I cannot find this information anywhere. Does anyone have the same type RV that can provide this information? Thanks in advance for any help. Bill Even if someone has the exact same RV, that does not exactly mean all the tank sizes or capacities are the same. The RV Industry is notorious for making changes while slapping together RV's, hence the disclaimers that are everywhere on brochures and websites. It was the same in 2000 as it is today. If during the production run they run out of 50 gallon holding tanks which they advertise, if a 30 is on hand and they can make it fit thats what you get. A coworker ordered a TT because of its wrap around dinette but when it arrived it had a standard sit across, the manufacturer ran out of cushions for the wrap around. Take it or leave it he was told. They will and can change capacities, sizes, designs, brands of components, etc, on a whim, and do so all the time.

RE: Gas station air/water station water safe?

I live in Southern California and all of the gas stations have air/water stations . The gas station attendant said the water should be potable because it’s just straight from the city water, but I think the black retractable water hose is suspect. I think it’s meant to fill up radiator water and not intended as drinking water. Does anyone know if it’s safe to put in your RV and use as drinking water? Does it taste terrible? Does it take any longer to fill? The spout is smaller than that of a hose bib. I cannot think of a water hose that did not come from a potable source. It is the proximity to a source that can cross contaminate the water that differentiates the use. So unless it states potable I would assume it does not comply with that jurisdictions requirements to qualify. Meanwhile while the water is on its way from treatment plant to hose no matter its proximity to the source its traveling through miles of these LOL. https://i.imgur.com/yo8BCFAl.jpg

RE: Hard lesson learned on water heater anode.

Installing a new anode will still shed as much sacrificial material off as an older one taking into account the older rod still has sacrificial material remaining, and the water chemistry is the same. So installing new may make you feel better, but its not going to stop aerator screens and such from clogging. A solution looking for a problem.
