RE: Built in vs. Stand-alone GPS?

...All modern phones have a built in GPS that doesn't require a cell signal to locate the phone... You should have seen me trying to explain that to the pimply faced nerd (geek squad) employees at Best Buy. They argued with me that having Copilot GPS app/maps loaded on my tablet won't work without a cell signal. I regularly use my tablet for a GPS. My tablet doesn't have cellular capability.

RE: 22" to 24" portable gas griddle

My Cougar came with a Capital grille. I removed the grille and installed a 22" Blackstone. I haven't used it much yet but like it so far. We will be heading south next week and I hope to get a lot of use out of it over the next five months.

RE: ? Becoming a KOA Work Kamper for $

Posting here thinking the workamping section has too limited views. Becoming a KOA Work Kamper - worth the $35? Is it any better, more convenient, easier, etc, than going to one of the online sites to find positions? Retirement coming soon - less than 2 years - and the idea of workamping sounds real good. Just discovered that for $35 (plus tax of course) I can join the KOA Work Kampers. You don't work directly for the larger KOA organization, you basically contract with whatever KOA affiliated campground you choose to work. To me it makes more sense to join https://workamper.com/ unless you want to only work at KOA really, really bad.

RE: Leaky Fresh Tank. Need help relocating pump fitting on tank.

Doesn't the crossover pipe have a gate valve in the middle? My 2006 WW FK1900 does. Remove that valve, buy the appropriate fittings and connect the pump pickup hose. BTW, my rear tank has had a leak at the top since I bought it in 2006. It was six months old when I got it. I've always figured someone ran a screw or two into the tank.

RE: campground to avoid

Well, yeah, Ohio is on my list of places to visit too, right there with Three Mile Island, and the DMV. What prompts that denigrating remark?

RE: campground to avoid

Glad to see you took action to make sure the situation didn't escalate(insert sarcasm emoji). While anything is possible, I find it hard to believe that the only conversation was you saying "hi, my name is X, here is my money for the night" and the owner's reply was as you stated. Bet the truth is there is a bit more that happened prior to the owner's final comments. Like the previous poster noted, the evidence is starting to build against you. No need to speculate. Having done business with the man several times, the OP's report sounds about right. I never had trouble with the guy but many of my friends have.

RE: campground to avoid

It's true about the cranky management at Friendship Acres. Our Good Sam chapter used to camp there with about 12 - 15 rigs once a year. The chapter members voted to stop because of the management's poor attitude. On the other hand I do know a full timer that stays there all summer and has no problems.

RE: Space Heater

bemerphile1, If the power goes off, does it "keep" the setting? Yes, it also has batteries so it is unaffected by power disconnects.

RE: Space Heater

For those that choose to use a portable electric heater here is a great thermostat control. Use the cheapest clearance aisle heater and get perfect temperature control. I also use one to control a window air conditioner in the stix/brix. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000E7NYY8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/31uAuGMm3DL._AC_.jpg height=200

RE: Space Heater

Check out this heater a little pricey, but it is super great heater. check out this heater It doesn't matter if you spend $500 or $20 for a heater. A usage of 1,500 watts still puts out the exact same amount of heat.

RE: A Question Are you limited to life on pavement

Climbing up on a soapbox can make you are target, be careful up there.

RE: Space Heater

To further what Gdetrailer is saying. A portable space heater is limited to 1500 watts. That means if it is a fanless model you will get 1500w of heat output. But if you add a fan, that power has to come out of the 1500W. If the heater fan uses 100 watts, your heater is only going to put out 1400W of heat... Sort of but not quite, consider that the energy consumed by the fan is turned into, wait for it, heat. Yes, heat.

RE: Insulating exposed tanks

Reflectix is the wrong product. If you read the manufacturers documentation it's best at reflecting, not insulating. It is only R-1 I would consider either dry camping or buy a more suitable RV. If you must use what you have, build a box from foam board to encase the tanks.

RE: Water line burst

1. Get a quality regulator and always use it. 2. Always turn water off when you leave the campsite.

Something is flexing due to improper installation.

RE: Toilet Leaking

Typically there is two bolts and they all have a rubber O shaped gasket between the toilet and flange.

RE: Loose doors and cabineet panels

Do not glue the panels or they will split. They must be able to move but if they are so loose as to rattle maybe a high quality clear elastic caulk on the inside. The door should be able to be adjusted.

RE: Upholstery needs to be redone

Glad get some ideas about reupholstering, but we are pretty ticked off that the Flex Steel recliner in our 2015 Newmarket Ventana LE is shedding it’s skin after only 4 years of limited use. The sofa and captain’s chairs are made of a different material and aren’t wearing out, but the recliner is a mess. What a disappointment! On newer units like yours some manufacturers are offering good will assistance in dealing with this issue. Talk to your dealer.

RE: Our First “BAD” Winter Experience

You are attacking it in the wrong place. The refrigerator has a weatherstripping type seal where the face contacts the cabinetry. You will need to pull the refrigerator partially out so you can replace that seal and then push back into place. Air leaking is inconsequential compared to the fumes it will leak when the refrigerator is operating on gas or there is some other source of fumes nearby like a generator. That is a hazard.
