Check the water level.

RE: Hearing problem need wireless mic and ear piece

I'm getting a bad case of CHS (cant hear s...) and FWIW, my Dr. told me that (real) hearing aids are going to become an over the counter item in the future and that do so shold cause the prices to come down. I'm hoping I can hold out that long. That is not true for REAL hearing aids. That is just for amplifiers. My hearing cuts off at the higher end of frequency's. I can stand right in front of our microwave without my hearing aids and not here the timer beeper which is 1 foot from my face. but I can hear the pile driver 2 miles away without them. I forget the frequency level that my hearing drops off. That is what causes people to not here some words being spoken. or hear some letters pronounced. It's not about the volume it's about what frequency you are not hearing. Only a hearing test can show this and no over the counter can fix it. Real hearing aids can amplify the higher end and cut down or out the lower end. Just like an equalizer on a stero. The more tracks the higher the cost. Forget about those $800 for two you see in the newspaper. I am on my 3rd set in 20 years at $1800.00 ea.The next step in hearing aids is gonna be blue tooth/GPS. Doc says I will be able to call him in MA from FL and he will be able to adjust my hearing aides from his computer. You didn't read my post closely enough. I didn't say they are available. I said my Dr. indicated they will be available - as in they aren't yet. Also, I'm not talking about the toy things sold on TV and elsewhere. I am talking about real, programable hearing aids. There is no reason they can't be sold in stores. Qualified professionals can test people and set up the new aids. I've been dealing with hearing aids for my disabled son for the last 30 years so I'm very familiear with them. I just paid $2K for his present set. They're a rip off. There isn't $50 worth of electronics in them. New law goes into effect August 2020. Yes amplified hearing aids is what they’ll be known as. Biggest difference is not needed multiple visits and the price. This is in response to a growing rise in dementia which has a link to hearing loss.

RE: Selling my RV advice

Nice thing about selling in TX is their RV season is 11 months out of the year, plus Texans enjoy camping. Your potential market will be large given the proximity to Houston. Is it worth the effort to tow it there? Hard to say. I’ve walked PPL sale lot and saw a lot of rigs needing TLC. Thinking they are as good as any good local RV consignment shop in your neck of the woods.

RE: Winter Camping - Golf Cart

Yes it would!! Thank you very much!! CC are 36 or 48 volt. Make sure you buy the correct one.

RE: Winter Camping - Golf Cart

First question is it electric or gas. I’m assuming electric since you said batteries. Next question is the year if in the 2000’s then your charger is setup to start automatically every 15 days as long as you don’t have a power outage. If that happens then you need to unplug everything to reset it. Batteries love cold weather so that’s a good thing. Your cart more then likely has a run/tow switch. Make sure it’s in tow when not in use. Run will have a parasitic draw. If you don’t disconnect the batteries make sure you charge them after every use then after a couple of week of non use.

RE: Thanks for fixing the forum problems.

Keeping my fingers crossed. Inquiring minds want to know. What was the problem?

RE: RGV ten year trend

There are several Texas Snowbirding destinations (Rockport being just one) but only one which actively attempts to lure new snowbirds to it. I would think the more people in an area, the more likely the price will go up for those that call it their winter home. Don’t see a lot of Floridians wanting more competition. Hmmm...

RE: Error Messages

Not ignoring I am just unable to duplicate the error message hence I don't have an example for them to troubleshoot. Most are just hitting the F5 key when they see it. I use RV.net and Firefox... I'm stuck and no way out at this time. Admin RV.net The first thing I would ask IT is if they applied any updates to Cold Fusion. If yes start there.

RE: Strange issue with this forum

Several portals. RV.net is go to though. Snowbird, full time, General, etc... don’t work. Class A does. Thanks. This is useful info as I have not experienced the issues? Were you sign-in to the forums when you got the error messages? Didn’t matter if I was signed in or not. Tried it both ways and different portals.

RE: Strange issue with this forum

What Open Roads Forum portal are you using when you encounter error pages on a thread? Also, what ISP are you using? (Verizon, T-Mobile, Comcast, etc.) Try refreshing your browser cache by pressing F5 key (PC), or CMD+R (Mac). More than once if necessary? Several portals. RV.net is go to though. Snowbird, full time, General, etc... don’t work. Class A does. Refresh don’t do it. ISP? Whatever the hotel has. Varies. Thinking your .CFM is no longer a supported technology.

RE: Not A Joke Top Off With Gasoline or Diesel

I’m sure he was going back when oil was well over 100 a barrel and climbing whenever there was a hint of production problems. What changed? Canada oil sands, fracking, and deep drilling technology. OPEC ain’t calling the shots anymore. Price goes up, profitability to produce local kicks into high gear.

RE: Not A Joke Top Off With Gasoline or Diesel

We’re no longer dependent on eastern oil. In the oil fields by Carlsbad where a worker said to me that we were standing on the biggest reserve in the world. Some crazy depth like ?0k feet. He then said we now have the technology to reach it. i mean it does make sense. If you have a long enough drill you could get to any oil anywhere in the earth from any place on the surface. It's a sphere. :B True, true. Just have to get around that hot stuff. The other thing that amazed me was he said they can direct the drill at will. So watch out Canada :)

RE: Black starting to show through on rubber roof

I have seen them completely black. White is nothing more then to reflect the sun. Rubber roofs should on average go20 years.

RE: Not A Joke Top Off With Gasoline or Diesel

You forgot the time element I allowed for this. Ooh ooh is it done? After 15 minutes in the oven? The USA is a large area I covered worst-case California first pop 40,000,000 Best case TEXAS would have been WRONG and dishonest. The Bigg error here would be to lose nothing. But here fifty dollars saved is fifty dollars saved Please do not apply for a CFO position.Originally, you were promising thousands of dollars of savings due to a coming global oil crisis. Now we are down to fifty bucks. That would be grounds for firing any CFO. :B We’re no longer dependent on eastern oil. In the oil fields by Carlsbad where a worker said to me that we were standing on the biggest reserve in the world. Some crazy depth like ?0k feet. He then said we now have the technology to reach it.

RE: We've arrived

I thought you’re a Sunbird? If so, makes a lot of sense to be in AZ now. The next chapter for me is going from 5-6 months of PTing to 3-4 months of snowbirding without the use of an RV. Both lifestyles have there advantages. Happy to have options, and not cemented to any one thing.

RE: US Border agent gave my passport to.....??

WOW, you’re lucky you had the time and he came back. Might want to remind the agent of 9-11 and he’s still a cog in a big wheel.

RE: Cleaning out a DIY septic tank

So how far away is the nearest well to this? Should be 100 or more feet away. Hopefully if you got neighbors they don’t have shallow water sources supplying a family.

RE: Seeking advice for full time rv living

First off don’t overthink it. With cell phones, gps, and the internet it is a lot easier then you would think.
