RE: Southwind Class A Motorhome Pursuit

So it was insane to try and stop her before she killed some people?? Everyone and everything that she hit are all asking why the police didn't stop her before she hit them. Suggest that those that don't like the way law enforcement does things, just go out and try it yourself. I support all Law officers, and realize that no one is perfect. And generally, the biggest complainers make a lot more income than most officers. And then complain about paying taxes for the officers salaries.

RE: “Service Temporarily Unavailable”

Wondering if the storms here in the middle have impacted some internet servers or connections. We are in Springfield MO at a KOA. Have had good internet via campground WIFI and Verizon mobile both. After the storms yesterday, both connections are flakey, dropping in and out, and a lot of "unable to connect" messages. Have talked to others that are having the same problems today in the area. Had to go out to the store earlier today, and experienced the same problem. Of course, ISPs and Wireless providers will never admit it. Hope they get it fixed quickly.

RE: Camping or Glamping?

I could not describe our experience any better than bigred1cav did. Almost a perfect description whatever it is called. The boy scout troop down on the end of our present RV site are REALLY camping, but they are close to the bathrooms, so they did not have to dig pit toilets. Besides, KOA looks down on that practice in their campgrounds.

RE: Any DIY dish mounts?

Yes, I made my own, which served very well for a number of years. Sadly, all the pictures have been deletedbut if you will PM me, I will tell you how to make one very cheaply. Also, I have seen ones made from Plastic pipe that are very compact, lightweight, and easy to travel and store. Most are made to use the dish inverted, laying on its back, which makes it very stable. Like said, PM me for instructions on how to make one very cheaply.

RE: 2002 Bounder whistles

Our 1999 Hurricane had what was called the "Hurricane Whistle". Never did find it, and as far as I know, no one else ever did either. But it was talked about a lot. Wish you luck.

RE: Power cord

Bury a 3" plastic pipe from rig to power post, and run power wire through it.

RE: How to avoid fake cast iron antique cookware

DW doesn't like cast iron cookware, for various reasons. My question is will cast iron pans work on induction cooktops and burners?? Seems like they should, but how well do they work from someone that has tried??

RE: Backup/Observation Camera Systems

Check first, but many have adaptors to attach to standard connections.

RE: Magellan GPS lifetime map updates

As far as I know, no GPS units are made in the US any more. They are disposable units, made to be purchased and them thrown away in order to buy another disposable unit. Wish you luck.

RE: Replacing Concertone Stereo

Take it out and bench test it. If it should work, check all the wiring. Once you find the problem, Any good Automotive sound system retailer should be able to help you. May need some custom cabinet work.

RE: Natchez MS

For the downtown area, take one of the golf cart tours, that meet at the visitor center downtown. Be sure and see the movie there. Make arrangements at the visitor center, and drive to the others. Be sure to see and tour Melrose. tours are regular scheduled by NPS rangers.

RE: What TV/Sat set up should I get?

Unless you absolutely have to have a lot of channels everywhere, just go with OTA Stations. Otherwise Dish seems to have the best deals and equipment for RVs. With our Sensar IV antenna, we can get stations up to 70 miles away, depending on terrain. We bought a portable satellite antenna and a Dish receiver and service on a per month account. Used it once, for about three months, haven't used it again. If we go on another long trip, I might activate it again, but not just for a weekend trip. If I had full time satellite service at home, that would be a different situation, and I would use it all the time. In your case, as a full timer, it would make sense. My opinion would be Dish.

RE: door latch

Yes, I have had two Trimark locks break, lucky, we were inside both times. It is not an uncommon problem, advise is to carry a spare, and always leave one window unlocked, as the lock has to be removed from INSIDE!

Is this actually possible??

I drive a small Class A, but know little or nothing about the bigger bus styles and equipment. I just saw a article about thieves sucking sewage out of a big RV instead of fuel as they expected. Is that even possible?? Is there any type of opening into the black tanks that could be accessed with a siphon hose?? On ours the only access would be through to vent line on top.

RE: Trailer steps and Dog

t is not so much the gaps between the steps, but the fact that the dogs are seeing just the edge of the step from their angle of vision. Our big dogs never had a problem, but the small one we have now does have a problem, so a carpet runner is the best solution. I also added reflective tape to the edges of the steps to make them easier to see, and that seem to help also.

RE: 50 amp cords

I use the grease to repel moisture and help prevent corrosion, and it probably helps keep things a bit easier to attach and remove. After making sure that all power is OFF, I use a flat blade screwdriver. I have no problem getting the plug loose from a power post, but getting my 30-to-50 adapter off is very difficult, as my plug does not have a handle on it. If both have handles, it is much easier.

RE: Kentucky Horse Park CG

Haven't been there in several years, but it was a great place to stay, clean and quiet. Be sure ant tour the museum and grounds.

RE: Class A-what year is it?

Our coach has left over 04, 05, and 06 parts, a 04 chassis, and registered as an 05. That makes it over 10 years old, so we can't get into the resort RV parks that won't have anything over 10 yrs. So we volunteer and the NPS lets us stay for free. And state parks, and COE campgrounds.

RE: Traveling to Lynchburg, Va from Bowling Green KY

I have run both ways lots of times. I like the run through WV better, because I hate to drive the traffic on I40 and I81. WV route has more twists and hills, but is a lot prettier IMHO.

RE: First class A, tippy feel when driving

You can either spend a LOT of money trying to fix it, or just learn to drive it.
