RE: Alberquerque Balloon fest for those who have an interest

Yes,a great launch this morning. We're up on the bluff overlooking the field. 550 ballons were scheduled to go up but some wind sheer came up at the end. Bill

RE: Thinking about beds.

On our last 5er, we put a full size mattress in it, and then put a 5" piece of foam between the "headboard" and the mattress. My thinking was that all it has to do is hold the pillows up. Yes, go the simple route. We slid the mattress down 6" then folded up an extra blanket and put it in the hole under the pillows. Bill

RE: Imperial Dam LTVA

I think you will grow rather board during a long term stay at the Imperial Dam. It's fine for several days or a couple of weeks, maybe, but there's not a lot to do or see around there. There are some nice roadside produce places. Everyone needs to see Yuma, but again, not a lot to do around there or very many restaurants. Bill

RE: Pin for ladder?

You'll have to provide more info and preferably a picture of the ladder and if there is another pin there for people to see. A lot of ladders don't use pins so it's hard to tell what you need. And, your profile is incomplete so we don't know what type of RV you have. Bill

RE: Comments on cancel your car Insurance

I have 2 identical cars -- one in the North and one in the South. When we switch location, the other car gets "suspended" at State Farm, for all but Comprehensive. It drops to about $20 for 6 months, and one call to the agent swaps out the coverages instantly. Yes, there is a lot of difference between suspended and canceld - CALL YOUR INSURANCE AGENT...........

RE: Comments on cancel your car Insurance

Except for the DP, I only have liability insurance on my vehicles, they're all paid for. State Farm allows me to put a hold on my vehicle insurance, such as for the class 8 tractor I use to haul my hunting rigs for one month a year, when I'm not using them. When I worked on the North Slope for eight weeks on and two weeks off, all of my vehicle insurances went on hold while I was gone for the two months at a time. It just took a quick call to my agent.

RE: DIY-who's tackled Foggy Glass repair?

The best location for window repair in country is in Vancouver, WA - Peninsula Glass / Motion Windows / where they can make completely new windows if you want to move that divider bar up out of your line of sight. There website doesn't mention cleaning and resealing windows but I'm sure they'll do that for you - just call them first. I absolutely agree with this opinion. We went to Peninsula originally because they make custom replacement window screens. While talking to them they said they could fix our fogged windows. In the end, we went with all new windows as most of ours were fogged. What sold us on new windows was several items. 1. They got rid of the divider bar towards the top of my driver's window that was always in my sight. 2. On the passengers window which was an up/down slider, the window break was always in the DWs line of sight. 3. We didn't like the escape windows in the rear bedroom where as the window was hinged and had to be pushed out while trying to exit through it. We had them install large sliding windows like in the living area of the DP. Better airflow besides being easier to escape through. 4. And last, all of the new windows have a reflective tinting. This both cuts down on the sun heat entering the DP and it blocks peoples view into the DP. We went there one day so they could take measurements and build a couple of templates. Came back a few days later and in eight hours they replaced all of the windows. They do have 30 amp plug-ins if you want to arrive the night before. I think they had a three or five year warranty on the windows, but Mike said if there's ever a problem, bring it back and they'll fix it anyways. Great product and service. Bill

RE: Fuel economy

Stay around 62 to 65 mph and DON'T FILL UP AT TRUCK STOPS..... Truck stops are for truck driver's who's company either gets a discount off of the pump / advertised price when they're billed and for truck drivers for whom time is money. If you'd use Gas Buddy you can always find a station near a truck stop that's 15 cents to 25 cents per gallon cheaper. And Gas Buddy will give you an aerial view of the station to make sure you can get in and out. I just put two new Michelin on the front of DP - I figured they were paid for by not filling up at truck stops. Bill

RE: OTA television while traveling?

We probably receive OTA TV 85% or more of the time. It's enough that we haven't bothered to upgrade our satellite TV receiver or want to pay the monthly fees. Bill

RE: For Standard Gear, What's your ladder of choice?

RE: Removing Silicone caulk

Test them in a out-of-sight spot first. I found out that if you leave them on too long, they'll also take off the paint. I didn't find any of them that worked really well - lot of scraping with a sharp plastic putty knife worked the best. Bill

RE: Excellent service from Roadmaster

You are talking Roadmaster? Stowmaster towbar? Ah yes, my mistake, it was Roadmaster. Bill

Excellent service from Roadmaster

Having just been in Vancouver, WA with a little time to kill, we took our Roadmaster tow bar to them to be serviced. This did not include the parts attached to the Jeep. They have a flat rate of $75 (plus tax if I remember right?) to inspect and service it. I was pleasantly surprised when we got it back and they had replaced every piece of the tow bar except for the two square arms with the serial number on them for that $75. Delivered it to them in the morning and we had it back that night. Couldn't beat the service or the price. Bill

RE: Possibly upgrading from TT to Class A

Since you mentioned the roof satellite receiver for TV, be aware that unless the current owners have upgraded it someplace along the line that it will probably not be usable without replacing the whole unit as we found out. But, it seems that we find acceptable OTA TV about 97% of the time and therefore get along fine without satellite TV. Bill

RE: Miles per day.

300 to 350, will push 450 if I need to, but not often. I'm retired, I don't like to get up early and I don't like to set up in the dark at night. Bill

RE: Replacing all my bulbs with LEDs

Amazon and eBay. Replace your tail lights while at it with brighter LED bulbs drawing less power. Bill
