RE: Would you plug in here.

Looks like a typical fairgrounds to me. Been doing that at county fairs for 40 years. NP. Usually the biggest issue is hose weight on the water spigot.

RE: Cleaning your AC Filter

All of the replies have to do with cleaning, cleaning, cleaning. I get it. My question was more about air flow, which in my trailer is significantly stronger with the filter out. "All of the replies have to do with cleaning"???. They all have to do with keeping max air flow. Letting dirt clog you AC unit by not having a filter is gonna restrict your air flow. Sounds like you had your mind made up before you asked the question though, have at it.

RE: Cleaning your AC Filter

Cooling coils are wet. Dust in the air will quickly collect on the coils greatly reducing there efficiency. The fins will clog reducing the airflow more then the filters do.

RE: Ohio's New Online Reservation System!

Not a fan of the new site also. Somehow my account information got screwed up and I had 2 accounts with one having some of my info and the other having the rest. Couldn't log into either account and it had no record of my email. Took 3 weeks to straighten out. Worse part for me is it doesn't show past reservations which let me know which campsites I liked

RE: Another Tesla problem

I'm in my 60's and have never been in a car accident. That said, and much to my embarrassment, once I was on cruise control on the interstate approaching my exit ramp and went to tap the brakes to slow down when the truck started to accelerate. Shocked I pressed harder and the truck continued to speed up. White knuckled I made the curve and went to let off what I thought was the break pedal and the truck slowed down. To this day I don't know how I thought I was on the break when I was on the gas. This was 20 years ago when I was a little sharper also. :h :S

RE: Discount on fuel if paying with cash??

Savin Nickels by spendin Dollars. Gotta love it. Park at the pump. Walk into the store and wait in line while Bubba buys his lottery tickets. Hand the cashier some cash to get the pump turned on. Go back out and pump the fuel. Go back in and wait for Larry to pay for his hotdogs. Get your change. Might I suggest leave the rig sit there at the pump and order 6 hot dogs prepared 3 different ways? :B:W

RE: Changing Atwood water heater plug to brass

I have used a brass plug for years with no issue. I do wrap the threads with Teflon tape. Don't know if that makes a difference.

RE: Will snow damage your average toy hauler roof?

There are thousands of new RV's sitting on the manufacturers and transporters lots in Elkhart / Goshen IN, and on dealers lots. They don't worry about snow or clean it off. At the local Camping World they don't even run in slides, and they leave the bunks / tents deployed on hybrids. Well if Camping World says it's ok ......:B

RE: potty without the rv

A small collapsible shovel from an Army Surplus store. Have a roll of toilet paper with you. Dig the hole... A jug of water and some hand sanitizer and a roll of paper tolls. Box of some kind to toss all this into. Many years of car and VW van travel has taught me... Gary HauptAnd if you had a wife who is 89 as the OP stated his is I'd like to see you convince her this is a good solution. Dave Not sure I could wait long enough to dig a hole sometimes. :B For someone 89 I would go with a small portable cassette toilet.

RE: 27 footer vs 32 footer, towing/handling difference?

Just one other thought. Even two trailers the same exact length can tow differently. One could tow noticeably better by design. Jerry Agree. My 34' TT tows better then my previous 26' did. Assumed it is because of the the wide stance axles but who knows.

RE: Forum Posting Help and Support

Because all they see is Help and Support. Maybe it should be reworded? Agree. "Forum Posting Help and Support". Does seem pretty clear though. :B

RE: Sticker shock

Midnightsadie....Don't know where you're from but around here you can make $15 stocking shelves in a department store. I was making $28/hr. back in 1995...plus 401k match, 75% of healthcare, paid holidays, and 3 weeks paid vacation... See what RV dealers are charging per hour compared to what they pay their mechanics.

RE: Are RV shows worth it?

Not a big fan of RV shows myself. Generally not many accessories being offered for sale, other then camp ground memberships, and to many people cramming into the inventory on hand. If I want to look at whats out there I prefer to stop at a dealerships and look around.
