RE: Cable pulls out but won't push in

Thanks for all the replies. Found the problem. The cable housing has pulled out from the barrel located at the top of the cable right behind where it goes through the wall. When I pulled on the cable it slid into place and worked. When I pushed on it the whole outer housing moved away. If I can't re-crimp it back into place,(like that's likely to happen) it's new cable time. I priced one onlne they're sure proud of those things... B.O. This sounds like the same problem I had a few years ago. Someone on another forum had a DIY fix for it. Get about a 3" length of 1/4" all thread and a couple of small hose clamps. Position the all thread next to the outer housing and the cable, like a splint. Tighten clamps and test. Good luck.

RE: Proper procedure for black tank rinse/sanitize

After I dump the black tank, I leave the valve open and flush for awhile. Usually there's still solid material, including TP, hanging up at the valve gate. If I close the valve at the end of the first dump, some of that TP tends to get stuck in the valve seat preventing full closure the next time. While flushing, when the water looks mostly clear, then I'll close the valve and do partial fills of the tank to get more solids out.

RE: Flush Line Black Water Tank

Could you clarify if you're talking about the SaniFlush to spray out the black tank after dumping? Or the drop from your toilet to the black tank?

RE: wifi at home and hacking?

I can easily see getting 'used' at a CG IF you have an open hotspot and IF the CG's wifi is slow. Set a password and probably nobody will bother trying to hack it.

RE: In the process of becoming a full-timer

Escapees is not the only option for a legal address in FL. I used St. Brendan's Isle mail forwarding service for years, always with great service. If you have other reasons to join Escapees, your proposal may be better but you don't need to join an organization just to get the mail forwarding. When I started fulltiming in 2006 I was married and the DW wanted to join every camping/RVing related organization in the country but we didn't really need to. You should plan on camping close to the dealer where you purchased your RV for at least a month before you start traveling. That way, if you run into warranty problems, it should be easier to get them resolved.

RE: My Experience - Camping World of Kingston, NY

... I don't think I have any choice but to drag the police in there, have them fill out a report for the "accident" that occurred in the CW lot and see if I can get my insurance company to help me. That sounds like it might be your best option. Let insurance handle the claim and take it somewhere else for the work.

RE: Camping World a let down

A response from an Administrator with an offer to research the issue in less than 2 hours after the post in open forum? That tells me they are trying to get good information to us. How many companies do we all try to deal with that we don't get any response at all from anyone let alone a response to a post on an open forum. I have found Camping World to be responsive when a mistake is made and while they aren't perfect either, they have always come through for me. If the business model, core best practice, and management style is just to "put out fires'" then Camping World deserves the defense this poster provides. However, it appears that Camping World/Good Sam are in the business of just appeasing a customer and not permanently resolving problems. Yep, kudos for allowing another line of communication (this forum) but bad on ya for not resolving root issues.

RE: Rv Travel Nursing

Since your actual question deals with internet access while of the road, you might want to ask the moderator to move your post to Technology Corner.

RE: Winegard Sensar Antenna issues.

Is the antenna oriented in the proper direction?

RE: How many of you full timers work only seasonally?

Without knowing anything about your finances or lifestyle, I would think if both you and your GF work the sugar beet harvest, then Amazon warehouse, you might be able to take the rest of the year off. BTW, the sugar beet harvest is not picking. You work at a central piling station. Both jobs are hard work but good money for seasonal temps. Also, where is the sugar beet harvest going on?? Is that something you've done? Any clue how much you could make there? I worked 3 seasons at the beet harvest, 2 as piler operator and 1 as foreman. Pay depends on what job you do. Here's a link to learn more: http://sugarbeetharvest.com/Official start date each year is Oct 1 but the pre-pile starts in September and you can ask to start then. The work isn't as steady in pre-pile but the camping is still paid for.

Instead or retyping stuff, I'll just provide a link to my blog about beet harvest vs amazon http://happykayakers.com/?p=217 On edit: I just got an email from Amazon with a link to a webinar where you can ask questions: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/4837274284907258882

RE: National General has lost my business!_

That reminds me of an old joke about a store that was selling chicken for $1 per pound. A customer walked in and told the manager that a store down the street was selling chicken for $0.50 per pound. The manager then asked why he didn't buy his chicken at the other store. Well, the other store was out of chicken. "If I was out of chicken, I'd sell it for $0.25 a pound." Those other insurance companies can say whatever they want since they won't actually have to process your claim. NEVER take any sales person's word on what will or won't be covered. I believe most states will allow you x number of days to review the policy and decline it if it doesn't fill the bill. It sounds like your leak was probably caused by lack of maintenance. Some things an owner just has to take responsibility for. I've had my fair share of slide repairs due to water intrusion. Never even considered a call to an insurance company.

RE: Another Surge Protector Post

I really want to hear more about all the folks who just sit in the RV for the entire stay, staring at a volt meter to see when they need to unplug. Do you ever get any sleep? See any sights? Get the PI EMS and enjoy your stay. It will cut off power to your RV for several different dangerous situations, wait 2 minutes, then reestablish power if it's safe.

RE: Motorhome hit in storage lot

... (by the way police are citizens, only military are not citizens)... Not sure where you got this info. I don't recall having to renounce my citizenship during 20 years in the Air Force.

RE: Considering RV hauling; need some advice

... Of course you have the option of sleeping inside the trailer being pulled. ... Roy Ken From previous posts in these and other forums, utilizing the trailer is a definite no-no. As a commercial carrier falling under DOT regulations, I'm not sure sleeping in the back seat of the P/U would be an option for the required rest periods.
