RE: Office 2016 - Outlook??

Why would you want to switch to Outlook which has been glitchy at best throughout the years. Lost emails, corrupt files, failure to open issues to name a few. Most people leave Outlook to use Thunderbird or use gmail or another web based email option. Very few switch to Outlook from another program. Just the problems you have at the moment should be enough to realize the program is problematic. You can use the other MS Office programs like Word, Excel etc. without having to use Outlook. That's what I've been doing for years. Don't know WHAT "Outlook" you have been using that is "glitchy, loses emails, corrupts files, or fails to open.. I can say that I have NEVER experience once ANY such problems in over 22 yrs with any version of Outlook.. From Outlook Express up to Outlook 2013.. Corporate email servers and Pop/Imap every version of Outlook I have used for myself has been trouble free. One of the only things I can say about Outook is it is not for every "user", it is more for "Power Users" that want more features and wizbang gadgets.. If you want a barebones dead straight no frills email client then go with Thunderbird.. After using Outlook for work purposes to me going to TB or any "web based" mail client is sort of going from a modern luxury car to a Chevy Chevette complete with no A/C and manual hand operated window cranks.. OP is also dealing with Office 2016, starting with Office 2013, you have no choice but to install Outlook and as such because everyone is stone scared to not have everything updated and patched 2016 and Win10 forces updates to your system which from the complaints I found resets Outlook 2016 as the "default" email client.. Can't uninstall Outlook 2016 either, you must uninstall ALL of Office 2016 products. Since OP has it, it WILL be reset to default email client over and over anyways, may as well give it a try.. I'm glad you have never had any issues with any Outlook offering but don't assume because you have had good luck that it's the norm. If you think it's the biggest baddest email client good for you but don't knock Thunderbird or web based email programs. I've never been forced to install Outlook and I've had MS Office since their 2007 version. I now use Office 360. You just have to install each of the programs individually in earlier versions instead of the entire package.

RE: Slide topper noise dampening

We used to have a 5th wheel with the head of the bed in the slide out. When it rained it was impossible to sleep. Then we added a slide topper and the problem was significantly reduced. Enough that we were no longer awakened to the sound of a freight train when it rained.

RE: FLEXIBLE FRESH WATER HOSE

You won't go wrong with either the Zero G or Flexzilla. I have both (Home and RV) and am happy with both.

RE: Outside Speakers

Jensen is about as low end as you can get for speakers. Just about anything would be an improvement. I would get anything rated as a marine speaker from Alpine, Kicker, JBL, or Infinity. If you want something really high end the best marine speakers are made by JL Audio and Wet Sounds but expect to pay a lot of money for them. Jensen is about as low end as you can get for any electronics with Furrion a close 2nd. I always get a good chuckle when RVers mention how much they like their Jensen or Furrion entertainment equipment in their rigs. They obviously have never had the opportunity to see or use any quality equipment.

RE: 13'5" clearance

You also have no idea how many times a municipality or a State Highway department has added more and more asphalt instead of digging the old out and putting in new. A 13'4" sign could really be something lower. I've seen that happen time and time again here in the Northeast and only after several years of adding more asphalt do they tear it out and pave the road again. I always assume whatever the sign says, it's a couple of inches less.

RE: TCs and Covid Vaccinations

Glad to hear you guys went South this winter. We stayed up North but so far it hasn't been bad (Green Grass here!). You can always go to Walmart and buy a tent and a couple of sleeping bags and make it a real adventure. hehehehe

RE: Opinion on Resort fees

It’s your choice to make. I don’t care what the fees are called, only the total due. This is what I'm concerned with too. How a resort gets to the bottom line, I really don't care. A resort fee is no different than a park charging .17/kwh when the actual cost is .12/kwh or charging for water usage. It's just their way of making some extra dollars.

RE: Watkins Glen ny

Paradise Park Campground, Clute Park and Campground, Watkins Glen KOA and Watkins Glen State Park Campground are all near the Gorge and Race Track. I have only stayed at the Watkins Glen State Park Campground when I had a travel trailer. It's Electric only and it might be difficult to get in some sites with your 303RLS. You might be better off staying at one of the private campgrounds that are nearby.

RE: RV Life GPS app

I have it on my phone but don't use it. Like afidel said, it's not user friendly. I use RV Trip Wizard to plan my trips and then recreate the exact trip in google maps and text the trip to my phone so I can use it to navigate. If you try this, don't use "My maps" in google. It isn't for navigation but just regular google maps and text it to your phone.

RE: Do any hotels/chains offer RV spots with electric or hookups

I don't know about hotels and chains, but some motels and casinos do have RV sites or parks associated with them. Often they give you access to what facilities are available, like restaurants & recreation facilities. I have compiled a list of the higher rated RV parks around the country over the last few years (low 7's to 10 on a 1-10 rating scale). I suggest you refer to your favorite RV search and rating site and do a name search for "hotel" and/or "motel." Below is an extract from my collection. I have only stayed at the Hollywood Casino in MS and the A+ Motel in LA from this list and they were both fine. I have heard good things about the Marathon Motel and RV Park. Blake Ranch RV Park & Horse Motel, Kingman, Arizona Newberry Mountain RV and Motel Park , Newberry Springs, California A+ Motel & RV Park, Sulphur, Louisiana Hollywood Casino Hotel & RV Park , Robinsonville, Mississippi Edgewater RV Resort & Motel , Lakeside, Montana Saddle West Hotel Casino & RV Park , Pahrump, Nevada Cinderella Motel & Campsite , Grand Island, New York Siding 36 Motel and RV Park , White Lake, South Dakota Scenic View Motel & Marina, Lone Star, Texas Marathon Motel and RV Park, Marathon, Texas Sandollar Resort Motel and RV Park , Rockport, Texas Leeds RV Park & Motel, Leeds, Utah Barron Motel & RV Campground , Barron, Wisconsin Lazy Acres Campground & Motel, Riverside, Wyoming I'll add to this list the Flatwoods KOA in Sutton, WV is owned by the Days Inn and Conference center adjacent to the park. Very nice KOA just off I-79

RE: Options for new 5er - help choosing

I have a standard Coleman 15K AC unit toward the back of our 5th Wheel and a low profile 13.5K Coleman AC in the front. The difference in height of the units is only 2 inches. I'm not sure that 2 inches is going to make much of a difference.

RE: National General Insurance

Same thing with me. Had National General for two years and then it doubled. I switched to Progressive.

RE: Chevy/GMC bed height

I have a 2020 Chevy 2500HD Crew Cab with a standard bed. Measuring from the center of the rear wheel, it's 58" from the ground to the top of the rail. It's 21" from the bed floor to the top of the rail. The bed itself is 6' 10" in length. I assume the standard bed has the same dimensions whether it's attached to a Double Cab or a Crew Cab. I hope this helps.

RE: Do I need my fan on when cooking in the oven?

In RV's wouldn't it be safer to use an ionization type smoke detectors especially since RV's burn faster? Someone smarter than me should probably answer that question but in my case, the smoke detector still goes off quickly if there's any smoke from cooking. So now, instead of going off EVERY time we cook, it only goes off if we burn something.

RE: Do I need my fan on when cooking in the oven?

In our Grand Design Reflection there isn't any exhaust fan of either kind. We do have a small window at the back of the stovetop and a max air fan in the ceiling close to where the stove/oven is but that's it. So I don't think it's necessary to use yours. We did change out our smoke detectors though as the original ones installed were going off constantly. They would even go off when making toast when there was no visible smoke. They were ionization smoke detectors and we switched them out with the photoelectric type and they don't go off from cooking anymore unless we truly have smoke in the RV.

RE: First Diesel trip in US 1930

And 100 years later, the Diesel Engine will begin being phased out for the all Electric motors. I wonder what comes after Electric motors going forward.

RE: TRIP PLANNER APP FOR RV?

It still can't be used as an enroute navigator unless you spring for satellite wideband service. The software packages that cold do that are all dead. I miss them a lot. Matt I create my trip in RV Trip Wizard at home on the computer and then recreate it in google maps so I can have navigation. It's more work but worth it to me. I know there's no low bridges and I get real time road condition and crash info with google maps.
