RE: Florida State Park Reservation window changes

Snowbirds don’t stay at Fla. state parks, the max length of stay is 14 days. Nothing wrong with giving priority to the people that pay your salary and benefits. Oh, but they do! We camp in a FL State Park at least once a month and there are always snowbirds in many sites. Most say they book for 14 days and then move on to another SP. Many don't mind moving every 2 weeks. Arrived home today from St George Island State Park and at least 50% of plates were from northern states.

RE: New rails installed prices

That seems very expensive. Look here: E-Trailer Reese Rails On Edit: Although, that is not for the Chevy it probably gives a good idea of possible price range.

RE: Tires

I used to Michelin LTX A/S on my 2004 Ram 2500. Never had an issue for 17 years in Colorado snow, and only on my 3rd set when I sold the truck in 2021. When I replace the crappy tires on my 'new' 2019 RAM I will try to find these Michelins again! EDIT: Looks like only the Defenders are available now - look pretty much the same so I would go with those.

RE: 1st night camping in our yard, 2023.01.24

I have a 30 gal tank and like to get it almost full with the flushing spray in order to get a good wash out. I use the meter to tell me when I have 25 gals .why? You going to store drinking water in it next trip? It’s a black tank, it doesn’t need to be squeaky clean - and it’s a waste of water. I like it that way. It makes the tank sensors work every time. That alone is good for me. We can agree to differ.......

RE: AT&T at Manatee Springs State park

Same here last year - zero Verizon coverage.

RE: 1st night camping in our yard, 2023.01.24

I use a small in-line water meter on the inlet to my black tank flush. I have a 30 gal tank and like to get it almost full with the flushing spray in order to get a good wash out. I use the meter to tell me when I have 25 gals in the tank. One of a great many tips I got from watching the wonderful 'Changing Lanes' channel on YouTube.

RE: Windows 11 Experts?

45 years computing here. Recently bought a new Dell Win 11 desktop. 500Gb SSD plus 2Tb factory installed SATA drive. Factory installed and labeled them as C: and H: drives. Now, if I open a file's properties on the C drive, and then select the 'more properties' line at the bottom, I get a 'send to' option among the next set of options. When I select that the H: drive comes up as an available option. This doesn't answer the OPs question other than to say it should work. Must be an obscure setting somewhere that I, for one, have never come across!

RE: Awning arm does not release.

I had a similar problem with my last trailer. In order to release the offending arm I would detach it at the bottom and lift it up a bit. That released the top and I then reattached the bottom and all was well. Did that every trip for about 11 years!

RE: Mopkka tank Sensors

I've been using them since they first came out. Don't waste the money buying the tank sensor and monitor kit. Just buy the sensor kit and then use the bluetooth smart phone app. It's way more detailed on tank level. Ditto!

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning FOOFs My Heart Cath went well. I see my Cardiologist on the 23rd. Blockage was not severe enough to require stents so hopefully just medication for the future. Thanks for your prayers. Dan Good to hear! :)

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Saw my cardiologist today. CT angiogram showed some blockage. I will have a heart catheter done on Thursday and possibly have some stints put in. Dan Best of luck Dan. Hope all proceeds well.

RE: How to install stuff on walls

For blinds I think I would use screws, but coat them with either epoxy of wood glue. As you say wood screws do have a habit of stripping out and I have found the wood glue helps a lot. For wall hangings generally we mainly use Command Strips and sometimes small pieces of Velcro. Put on correctly the Command strips don't fail very often - provided you use the correct size for the weight of the object being hung. If you watch the 'Changing Lanes' videos on YouTube they are full-timers for the last 5 years and they swear by them - as do I.

RE: Bicycles

We've carried our two bikes on an RV-rated bike rack mounted on the chassis-integrated hitch receiver on the back of our two fifth wheels the whole time we've been on the road. Zero issues and no sacrifice of interior configuration or living space. We keep them secured and a good cover on them at all times (except when riding, of course). Rob Ditto - have done over 12,000 miles with two electric bikes on Thule rack on rear hitch - Hitch was preinstalled on our Cougar and is rated for a tongue weight of 300 lbs, plus 3000 bs tow weight. Back in Colorado, all surrounding states, we used to tow double as it was allowed there - but not here in Florida. Bikes don't move much - Thule has a screw tightening pin which takes out most of the hitch movement. As for the hitch mounted on the pin - that would be better for long bed trucks, where turning and hitting the cab with the bikes may not be an issue. Plus, at 74, I don't think I could lift a bike that high any more. :)

RE: Grand Junction to Denver in early to mid April

March and April are normally the two snowiest months in the Rockies and Denver (and east) area. I lived there for 30 years. However, snow can come and go fairly quickly. It would be prudent to look at accurate forecasts for areas such as Vail Pass and the Eisenhower Tunnels and plan around that. If snowfall is heavy, chains can become mandatory.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Dan got out of the hospital yesterday, Patty reported. Hope all turned out well and that he is OK now.

RE: short high end fifth wheel

Thanks all for the suggestions. Artic Fox is about as close as Ive been able to get,but the shortest just not a good floorplan for me. Really frustrating that nobody tests the market. Same problem with travel trailers. That Cougar 27SGS is a nice floorplan! Wish they made it in the Premium series. Accepted it is not a premium model, but we have found the quality to be very good. :)

RE: short high end fifth wheel

We love our Cougar- see signature. She is just 31ft.

Burch, So very sorry to read this about Lola. Our hearts go out to you. Martyn and Liane

RE: Rockwood & Flagstaff

Take a look at the Keystone Cougar 25RES. Fits all your numbers and from experience (we have the 27SGS) very nice trailers.
