RE: annual snowbird trip home

I think warmer areas will fair better than cold areas. Before antibiotics, a successful treatment was outside in the sun and fresh air.

RE: Aladdin System

Yes, the wires to the sensor is those phone type wires.

RE: Having Second Thoughts

What difference does the CG make if you are at Disney all day? Take advantage of hopefully fewer people like you. We like Stage Stop down the street , but you still park on the grass.

RE: Impact of Coronavirus on Parks?

Getting a Flu shot will do you more good. 16,000 dead so far this Flu season. What, 12 dead from this over hyped epidemic.

Thanks Doug Rainer

No telling how many people Doug has helped over the last 13 years he’s been on here giving excellent free advice. Many of his replies to a problem is longer than this post. Recently I PM Doug on a problem... one AC short cycling in my 08 Navigator... rear Duotherm (1 of 3 old style on a 5 button Tstat) short cycles on AC...other 2 do not. Will start up multiple times... long enough for compressor to start and then immediately shuts off. Occasionally it will run for 10-60 seconds before shutting off. If I lower the temp several degrees lower it will start and run until it gets to the new lower temp and then start doing the same thing. I’ve covered the remote temp sensor with tape but doesn’t make any difference. Any suggestions on what to do??? Doug’s reply; take the remote sensor out of the wall and let hang. IF the sensor has a plastic clamp to keep from falling in the wall remove that plastic clamp. ANY pressure on the bulb of the temp Thermister will cause erratic operation including short cycling. Doug THANKS, there wasn’t a clap real close, but the bulb was touching the cover. Repositioned and will see, once it cools down, if that fixes it, Problem Solved

RE: Looks like we're comin back.

Like I said in my post, I was reacting to your statement “We don't want to go over 30" so we can visit all the National parks” . I’ve visited the majority of our NPs in something a lot bigger than 30’. Even at 30’ there are a lot of roads in NPs that prohibits a vehicle over 20’... most of the side roads in Yellowstone comes to mind. I usually put as many miles on our car as our DP when spending the summer out West. The MH becomes our base camp and usually only moves once every 6-10 days. Regardless, it’s a great country when we can have so many choices and beautiful places to visit.

RE: Hiawassee Ga via 441

I would take 441/23 all the way to Clayton and then US 76. 76 is a much better road than 75/17 from Helen.

RE: Looks like we're comin back.

“ Hahaha, what "works" for you is not a blueprint for everyone.” Not much of a blueprint... 3 MHs in 5 years. Not implying it’s for everyone but only 30’ for public CGs is not true or even 36’. At 6’5” I’ve gotten out of many a car or RV when my head hits the ceiling.

RE: Looks like we're comin back.

It bothers me when I read someone is going small because of staying in public CGs. What could go wrong with twice the husband, on half the money, and in 1/10 the space after 5 days of rain? We like public CGs that do not take reservations...be it NP, SP, USFS because I can almost always find a site big enough even when the max is listed as 30’ max. Do not show up Friday as there will be a 25’ rig in a site big enough for 45’ BUT on Monday you can take your pick. I made the mistake 20 years ago of starting at 36’ because of posts on here that 36’ is max for public CGs. Didn’t take long to realize that’s BS. After 2 years went to 40’ and then in another 2 years to a 42’ for 14 years and recently 45’. Buy more MH than you think you need...ONE TIME. Last summer we did 2 months out West (without reservations) staying mainly in public CGs...most $8-14/night with the old farts pass. No, I do not recommend 45’ for most but 40’ with a tag axle would be the best...plenty of CCC. Do you want to take something out every time you bring something in because you are over you GVW?

RE: Mh Interior 12 volt LEDs

Would help to know what bulb you gave??? Rarely do I pay more than $1 for G4.

RE: Big Rig places in Arizona?

Not many trees to get in the way. AZ is a god state.

RE: Rez fridge question

Many are running Samsung 18 cuft on 600W MSW inverters but it uses a DC compressor...will start off one battery. I put in a 21cuft EnergyStar Whirlpool that draws 8A (measured before the 1000W PSW inverter) ...96W and uses 1.2-1.3 KW/day. Plenty of 100-110AH 12V batteries (I added 2-110AH just for the refer). I’m good for 24 hours but rarely go that long as the house batteries need charging before then. The JC 12V compressor replacement for the NoCold 1200 uses 110-120 AH/ day... only slight better than my 21 cuft. My EnergyStar 21 only increases 1 degree/hour shut off unlike the poorly insulated No Cold...partly why they are such POS.

RE: HOV Lanes in Atlanta GA

I consider my rig is a bus and yes I’ve been using the Atlanta HOV lanes for 16 years but only a couple times/year. There is a difference between HOV and the newer express toll roads that require a Sun, Peach, or NC transponder to use and NO, I do not use them in the MH.

RE: 2006 dynasty monacco

Around 2006 they moved the fuel tank back to the second bay to decrease the weight on the front axle. I can get 15 more gallons into mine by leaning to the right and filling on the left...the bottom of the fill tube is lower than the top of the tank. I’ve but 160 gallons in a 150 tank.

RE: Mission Texas Weather

If you dig a little deeper the difference in the Hi and Low temperatures in S Fla is 10-12 degrees most days during the winter. In S TX the average is 15-20 degrees plus the 5 degrees ^^^^ adds up.

RE: It’s that time again...to have some fun

Turn about is only fair...44 degrees in WPB this morning (coldest temp in 9 years) and Mission is 66 which will be about the same as our high today. Probably should stop here ....not, so miracles do happen.:B

RE: washer/dryer

No reason not to, especially if you are going from CG to CG, even with small tanks. Uses 20 gallons and a out of balance load on the spin cycle will put more force on it than any bump.

RE: Need to replace LED strip lighting under awning

Unfortunately it’s normal for the strips to loose sections and finally completely. Doesn’t seem to make any difference you pay for them.
