RE: Any one else giving up snow birding due to the covid

We're staying home in Western NY this year as well. Our concern is another shut down. We don't want to spend a bunch of money to be confined to our RV for who knows how long with all of our support system at home. Not to mention, I got ill last year and ended up in the hospital (not covid related). Just about everything was out of network and not covered at all until we met our high deductible threshold so it was paid out of pocket.

RE: Any experience with a gas fire pit?

They're nice if you don't mind filling up your propane tanks a lot. The average fire pit uses a 20Lb tank in 3-6 hours

RE: Winterizing queston

You need to run antifreeze through it. I don't think air will pass through it like liquid will. Does your TT have a black tank flush? Don't forget to winterize that as well if you have one.

RE: Fifth wheel trailer suspension

1996 skyline 24’ fifth wheel tandem axel...value $6,500 1996 skyline 24’ fifth wheel tandem axel with independent suspension...value $6,500 1996 skyline 24’ fifth wheel tandem axel with independent suspension, new tires and a bunch of new bells and whistles...Value $6,500 My point is once an RV gets to a certain age, it's not worth putting any money into it. You won't gain any value but if money is no object, go for it!

RE: Do RV Batteries Freeze in the Winter?

Big_C, I have the same four 6V Lifeline batteries wired in series and parallel. I contacted lifeline who said, just make sure they are full charged, disconnect the cables and they will be fine. hey may go from 13.4 to 13.2 over the winter but not to worry about them. I have taken their advice for the past three years. No issue at all. I hope this helps.

RE: Preferrred Water Heater

Atwood CONs Only one set of t-stats for both AC/Gas operation, DC Relay and AC Element on backside of WH Tank That's the only thing I don't like about the Atwood/Dometic HW Tank. Having things on the backside that might need to be replaced. That can be a difficult task by some RV Owners.

Preferrred Water Heater

Which brand water heater do you prefer? I've had both the steel Suburban and the aluminum Atwood/Dometic. They are both excellent water heaters. Personally, I prefer the Atwood/Dometic but which do you prefer?

RE: Any full timers use a roomba style vac?

We have friends that have a seasonal site and love their roomba style vacuum. I don't know what brand they have but whenever we visit their RV site, it's usually moving around.

RE: Compressors

I don't know what kind of compressor you have or how big it is but I'm going to assume it's a typical one where you have two gauges. One gauge will show the tank pressure and one gauge will show the air regulator pressure (hose). There should be a knob that turns to regulate what you want your regulator pressure to be. Make sure the air drain valve typically found underneath the compressor tank is not leaking air when the tank is full. Remember, when you open a sink valve, it's the same as having an open air hose so it's not uncommon to have the PSI read different. Are you keeping the compressor plugged in and running when using it so it can replenish the air you're using?

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

We had to walk 11 miles to school, in 4 feet of snow, uphill both ways, with no shoes. Me too, we must have been neighbors! :B At least you didn't have my experience. After walking that 11 miles to school in 4 feet of snow uphill with no shoes, I remembered it was Saturday!

RE: Is my RV park still a Good Sam Club park?

It appears that it no longer is a Good Sam Park. There's no indication or logo on their website and there's no indication or Good Sam rating when looking on the Good Sam website either.

RE: Eternabond question

Most everyone on this forum including myself swears by Eternabond but "AZ EXPERT" who has a Youtube channel doesn't think much of Eternabond. I was shocked to hear some of his remarks. Check out his videos about Eternabond and you'll see what I mean. AZ Expert Eternabond Opinions

RE: The trashing of our public lands.

Remember back in the day when there were commercials on TV about trash. One that comes to mind is the Native American standing on the side of the road and trash being thrown out of a car at his feet and he would have a tear running down his face. One other point is it isn't always going to be a camper or hiker or even some person that wants to throw their junk away at no cost. Many times in my career I investigated illegal dumping and quite often I would find envelopes with names and addresses on them. When I interviewed those people, I would learn that they hired a local handyman to take their trash to the landfill and instead of disposing of the trash properly, they would throw it out on the side of the road to avoid having to pay to dump it. They would have no idea their trash was littered along the highway or public lands.

RE: The trashing of our public lands.

I didn't read the whole article but I get the gist of the issue. There are just WAY too many people that could give a Rat's *** about anyone except themselves and there are even some people that don't care about themselves either! Therefore they don't care about public lands and what happens to them. they're going to break things and leave their trash behind because nothing will happen to them. Unfortunately, their deeds go unpunished most of the time and not many will confront them if they see it happen because they fear getting beat up or worse and by the time people report things, the culprits are long gone.

RE: Stud Finders

Project Farm just evaluated a bunch of stud finders. I saw that and actually posted a comment there about aluminum studs and RV walls.
