RE: Leveling and turning on your refrigerator?

You might consider freezing some larger size bottled waters. Then add them to your fridge, they will help expedite cooling. Frozen bottles will also help cool when you can’t turn on your fridge.

RE: AA battery life

If you are near a Costco go buy their jumbo pack of Kirkland batteries.

RE: Coleman lantern

Oh yes! I have a 2 mantle lantern and a 3 burner gas burner, both Coleman, that I bought in 1977 at Montgomery Wards. I think the pump, or pump gaskets, may be shot. Any tips or advice to repair or replace?

RE: Dark Sky Camping

Oklahoma Panhandle, Kenton Oklahoma area. Middle of nowhere, people come from all over the USA and Canada for the http://www.okie-tex.com/schedule.php Okie-Tex Star Party. This is an organized event with nationally and internationally known speakers. However you don’t have to go to the actual event , you can find places around there. Good thing you have an RV, there are few services nearby. Be well supplied. Hhoever f you attend the Okie%Tex Star Party you’ll have all you need there. Okie-Tex Star Party

RE: loosing old members

I’ve just passed my 15 year anniversary date here. Today’s RV.net is vastly different from my start here. There are many reasons for this. One that that really is striking is my Buddy List. I added them as I found them to be interesting for some reason or another. There are 17 names, 16 no longer post, as near as I can tell, only one of them still posts, and rarely at that. I assume the 16 died, gave up, or major changes affected them. There were more people, posting more frequently, in all the forums. That’s lost now. There was a wealth of knowledge, freely shared. Now gone. Today RV.net is a shell of what it once was. But we still here, and the newcomers, carry on. It’s still a good forum, all things considered.

RE: Truck Maintenance first 10K

Go with the Rough or Severe part of the maintenance schedule, if there is one. You’re not schlepping around in a Honda Civic. Personally, for me, I’d respect the cost of that truck and do very careful and thoughtful maintenance a little early. Maybe it’s just me wanting piece of mind. The price of maintenance a little early won’t break the bank. Good luck to you.

RE: I35 in Tx

There are a number of fine highways that will cut off from I-35 and go in a North Easterly direction. Pick one. You’ll be fine. Enjoy the trip. HWY 31 at Waco, through to around Tyler, HWY 271 to I-30, for example, or any roads along that, will be fine. Are you in a hurry?

RE: Oil change SHOCK

Always ask prices up front. Always ask prices for add on’s. If it needs it, it needs it. Ask prices, decide yes or no. Get it done or not. In absence of that, you’re foolish, don’t ***** about it. Vehicles are expensive, need servicing. You, your wife, your kids, whomever, should have SAFE and reliable transportation. If you dance you have to pay the band. Either do it yourself, or find a good locally individually owned shop you can trust and depend on. If you go in for an oil change, and are advised you also need an engine air filter and cabin air filter, and you ok it, expect a $100 bill. Did you get a price for doing so? Then, no, you didn’t get charged $100 for an oil change.

RE: Sundance 241BH - Black water tank fell out

I’d get some strapping to run completely across the bottom of the tank, at least 2 or 3. The manufactured probably saved a buck seventy four on materials.

RE: CB Radios??

Not really, but if you have one that also receiives the NOAA Weather Channels then they’re great to have.

RE: Storing rv in desert heat

Can you store it in a place with a covered roof? Personally that's what I'd do. The sun will just flat out detiorate your RV.

RE: Think you can follow instructions?

I don't know. I'm not an expert. I'm just here to watch the silly personal attacks and the butt hurt egos butt heads. Pass the popcorn please.

RE: Tioga and George?

George has passed away. Someone, I don't know who, provided this notice and opened up his blog for comments. Goodbye George, God speed, and may God Bless.

RE: Tioga and George?

I was just wondering the same thing. There are only 2 published replies in his last posting. Apparently he has to approve each before the public sees them, so I'm sure there are lots of unseen responses/questions. I've been following him since, well I think 2003 or so. I do hope he is alright.

RE: truck stop

We use the gas buddy app to find fuel. You can search by type of fuel needed. Often, prices vary 20 to 30 cents per gallon within miles of each other. You can search by company; Murphy, flying j,etc as well. Exactly. And when you are taking on 40 gallons that adds up. i find Flying j to be very competitive price wise plus they have cool stuff to look at inside their store. Easy to fuel at their islands and that's something to consider also. Go inside and ask to join the fuel discount program. You will save at least 3 cents per gallon, it might be 5 cents per gallon. Free to join, no cost or obligation, Do it.

RE: Recommendations for Tulsa-Tucson Route

My favorite route to Southern California: from Tulsa take I-44 to OKC, pass over I-35, the turnpike continues as the name changes to the Kilpatrick Turnpike westbound. This will let you bypass going through OKC downtown. Stay on the Kilpatrick Turnpike going west, after you go past the Quail Springs Mall area keep going. It will curve to the left, stay in it, it will then take you Southbound to I-40. Take I-40 west to Amarillo. At Amarillo take I-27 south a short ways, get off I-27 and get on US HWY 60 WB. You'll go through Hereford, cross into New Mexico. At Clovis get on US HWY 70 headed to Roswell. At Roswell keep an eye out for UFO's and extraterrestrial aliens, there is a UFO museum in Roswell. Stay on US HWY 70, go through Ruidoso to Tularosa-Alamogordo. Get on US HWY 70 to Las Cruses. At Las Cruces get on I-10 and mosey on to the AZ border to Tucson. Really cool place to see: After you cross into AZ on I-10 in about 20-maybe-30 miles you'll go through a location called Texas Canyon, do this in the daylight so you see the AMAZING landscape of GINORMOUS boulders, it's awesome, so pull into the rest area and marvel at this, take pics. I live in OKC, I no longer take I-40 unless I have a specific reason, I greatly prefer the scenery of what I call the Southern Route. It's much prettier and interesting and as well has better weather. BTW if the weather is bad between OKC and Amarillo, just stay on I-44 to Wichita Falls TX. Get on US HWY 277 or 380, try to pass by South of the Lubbock area and work your way West to New Mexico, depending on weather conditions just look at your map-atlas. I try to avoid arriving at El Paso because that's too far South and too many miles, unless you just want to see that area, if weather is bad enough just head for El Paso by whatever way as necessary. If you're not in a hurry the little towns and little highways are interesting. Have fun. Have fun, enjoy your trip, be safe.

RE: How to keep thieves from stealing our 16' trailer?

Get a roll of yellow crime scene tape and a roll of biohazard tape, wrap well around the trailer. If you can get one, a sign on the door reading Crime Scene, Do Not Enter, Contagious, Blood and Pathogens inside. I'm kidding.....Or maybe not.
