RE: sticking indicator

Many will sort of burp when flushing if nearly full. Once that happens it is time to find a dump station. X2

RE: MS Outlook log in issues . . . .

MS Outlook is just an email client. It's used to connect to your actual email account (Hotmail, gmail, yahoo, etc). Did you change your password at the source?

RE: Full-time in the San Francisco Bay area while working?

We get a lot of these first-time posts on here. You may want to seek employment which pays enough to afford rent. Your approach sounds like a nightmare. Actually, these folks at least have experience living in small spaces and it's for a limited time, unlike most of the other first time, I wanna be a fulltimer, posts. That's why I responded. Having said that, I think the outcome will be the same. Once they figure out all that will be involved they'll fade slowly into the sunset.

RE: Full-time in the San Francisco Bay area while working?

You can check out this website free to look at reviews of local area campgrounds. You might find a decent towable RV for <$10K. Do you already have a suitable tow vehicle? If not, you'd have to find a centralized park and stay there for the entire time. You'd actually get a better rate that way. I've been to a few campgrounds where cats were allowed to roam free while dogs had to be leashed. Unfortunately, they're in the minority so you might have to train your cats to stay inside.

RE: Is our F150 4x4 ecoboost adequate.

Can you provide the GVWRs of both TV and trailer? And GCVWR? Dry weight is a useless figure since you'll always add 'stuff' to the trailer before using it.

RE: Towing question

Have you headed to the nearest scale to find out your actual weights loaded for a trip? Compare that actual weight with the published towing numbers for your TV and trailer.

RE: Camping World in General

...I say let's all work positively to make the company and services better and to help Marcus create a true customer-focused company that delivers a service level that meets our expectations no matter what store we visit. If I were on the CW payroll, I would do exactly that. Being a customer, I expect to get the appropriate value in goods or services for whatever $$ I spend - period.

RE: Default Homepage and Search Engine Keep Changing

I would check add-ons within IE first to see if one of them might be the culprit. Then I would check other programs set to run at startup (from msconfig). Anything unidentifiable I would uncheck, one at a time with restart, and see if it made any difference.

RE: Printer stopped working

The spool service stopped more likely due to the print driver crashing more than anything else. That said, if the spooler service is down you will not be able to delete the print job as 1492's video shows. Unfortunately some devices get so old its not cost effective for anyone to write drivers for them anymore. Its like finding parts for old cars. At some point you just have to throw in the towel. You may end up buying a new printer. First paragraph. haddy1 was correct about deleting files manually with the spooler service stopped. Second paragraph, very true. Not sure if this was the OP's first attempt to print or if it recently stopped working. More details about OS, age of printer and printing history would have been very helpful.

RE: Printer stopped working

Go into your computer's Administrative Tools, Services. Scroll down to print spooler. If it doesn't say Started, then right click and select Start. If it won't start, try a reboot. If it still won't start, check the Event Viewer to find a clue about why it won't start.

RE: firewood - emerald ash borer

I truly believe that campers hauling their own wood is a scapegoat for the spread of EAB... Maybe, maybe not. But it's such a simple measure to take if it's true. Unfortunately, too many people believe that if it inconveniences them, it must be bad/false/a government plot/etc.

RE: Any "must see" suggestions going thru Vermont?

What flavor at Ben & Jerry's? All of them. The only time I was there I tried (and failed) the Vermonster Sundae.

RE: search doesn't work

Try searching here for a popup blocker. Be careful when downloading any free software. Sometimes you click on a download button for something unrelated to what you wanted.

RE: Surge Protector Reading L1

As should go to a big box tool store and get yourself an inexpensive multi meter and, if you don't know how, get someone to show you how to use it. It's really easy. I always check the pedestal before I plug in. This link will explain more about RV electricity Why get a multimeter for a one time check when he already has a surge protector performing continuous checks? Just because power is acceptable before you plug in doesn't mean it will stay that way.

RE: texas

planning a trip to texas. prob San Antonio. but we are open to suggestions for other places does anyone have a favorite camp ground in San Antonio Ummm, in case you haven't looked at a map recently, Texas is a very big state. Without some idea of what your interests are, somebody would be hard pressed to recommend another area. You would probably also get better responses if you asked a moderator to move your post to the RV Parks, Campgounds forum.

RE: PI EMS Protector Questions

If your trailer is a 30a unit...get the 30a PI surge unit. I like the hard wired one they offer. You should also get a dogbone for the times when only 50a service is available in the campground/park.

RE: Commode question

Not sure which model toilet you have but for my Dometic you have to lift the foot flush to add water, press down to flush.
