RE: rear view camera question

Mine can even be set to upside down, although I have no Idea why in hell anyone would want to do that. :h

RE: What is a Tinker?

I struggled with this post and the best forum for it. What is a Tinker and are RVers more likely to be a Tinker than someone in the general population? I looked up Tinker and Tinker's dam before putting pen to paper and found that they are or more correctly were traveling repairmen of household utensils, with pots and pans being high on their repair capabilities. I remembered reading about Tinker's dams in a Navel training manual some years ago and the description was basically the same as what you will find today. Tinkerer is also listed and acceptable but grammatically not correct. In Europe the tinkers of today have been called Techno-Tinkers. I think that is a good name for them. I believe that there is a higher percentage of Techno-Tinkers in the RV population than in the general population and that the "Do It Yourself" forum should be renamed "Techno-Tinkers Corner". What say you? Should we petition the Administrators to have the name changed?No, Un-Needed.

RE: We need a new Forum Topic Page - Gadgets - Tips

Here it is! Seriously?! :h Who is going to wade through 335 pages of discussion that started way back in 2006 just because they "think" they might find something of interest? Good grief. :SSo, you'd rather start a duplicate thread for the same thing, just because you don't want to read, what happens when that new thread gets to 335 pages, start a new one? :S:h Guess you shouldn't look at photo's in Picture Posting thread in Around the Campfire, there are 2054 pages.

RE: yosemite to lake havasu city

Best route for you is south to Bakersfield, CA58 to Barstow, I-40 to the the AZ95 turn off into Havasu. Be advised that it is getting hot here, 113 today to 115 Thursday with mid 80's for lows.Not to highjack the thread, but whats the normal average temp in August?

RE: Good CG in the Mt. Washington Area?

Are you wanting Mt. Washington on Vancouver Island BC or in New Hampshire?Just a guess, but I'd say NH, probably because 99 % from the east coast have never heard of Mt Washington near Spokane or Vancouver, just as I'm sure most from the west coast haven't heard of Mt. Washington, NH. We stayed at Apple Hill in Bethlehem, but many folks wouldn't as it definitely Not a resort type, it is functional, & cheap with Passport America. Basically, it was a place to sleep for us, as we were gone all day touring.

RE: Sewer hose rules

I have that same type fitting and is all I have ever used as it gives a good seal in most all sewer pipes. They do not want someone just hanging a loose sewer hose done the dump pipe with no seal.This is probably true at commercial CG's, but most Fed parks we've been to just have a straight pipe hole at the dump station, I have just what the OP has & never been questioned, even when they said a doughnut was required. At a private CG in NY, rules stated a doughnut was required, I told the owner that I didn't have one, when I showed him what I had, (exactly what OP has) he said that was fine.

RE: Here I sit! Yuck!

I feel for ya, albeit for a different reason, normally we would have been gone several times by this time of year, but being that we are taking a 3 month western swing, we decided to hold off on the shorter trips, and believe me it's been killing me, the Only good side to it all, 2 more days till we leave. :( :)

RE: has anyone removed their awning? is there a simple way?

I'm missing the point here, if you never use it, (which I can't think of one trip where we DIDN'T use it), then what's the difference if it just stays in place & ignore it, save yourself the unnecessary bother. :h

RE: External Cab covers

Sorry, but we've never camped anywhere that hot,(yet) was in OK one year at 100, but it didn't melt the magnets to the paint. Will let you know though after we go to AZ in August.

RE: Yellowstone mosquitoes specifics?

X-2, where do you go WITHOUT skeeters, I've heard there are some places like that, but have never actually been to one. :h Most places west of the rockies :B. Houses don't even have window screens or AC in much of the west. Long as you stay away from lakes and marshes, and camp instead near running water (creeks and rivers) or in the desert, or on the beach, you can be pretty skeeter-free in the west. Yellowstone has that big lake, and I guess a bunch of other watery stuff... I saw about 10 mosquitoes per year when I lived in Central CA, but some people still complained. CA couldn't make a puddle if it tried right now. Bet the ground would soak up the water in seconds its so dry. Sad.Texas thought so too, after a 5 year drought, but it didn't soak in as fast as they wanted, it just ran off into floods.

RE: Yellowstone mosquitoes specifics?

I think it's all relative to where you are from and your tolerance. I grew up in Louisiana and stayed out until dark every day shooting photos last July and don't remember any mosquitos. I just asked my wife and she said, "Oh, yeah, they were bad." Does that help? :BX-2, where do you go WITHOUT skeeters, I've heard there are some places like that, but have never actually been to one. :h

RE: Central New York Boondocking & Campsites

Lake Delta state park and Pixley Falls state park both north of Rome on 46. You didn't say what type of fishing. For boat fishing for perch, bass, walleye go to Oneida Lake. Lots of campgrounds east of Sylvan Beach, or Verona Beach state park. For trout, check NYS fishing access sites and try West Branch of the Mohawk, Pine Creek, Salmon River, Moose River.I don't think Pixley Falls is open to camping anymore. Lot of suggestions for Dry Camping at State Parks, but I don't know anywhere you can actually "boondock".

RE: Campground Amenities vs lower prices

Lower prices, we have never used a pool, playground , clubhouse, game room or any other amenities, at a CG, other than the FHU, but can get along just fine in COE CG's with just water & electric.

RE: LEMON RV ANY HELP OUT THERE

BY NOW I THINK IT'S THE OP'S TURN. I doubt if you'll see the OP come back, I don't blame her.

RE: LEMON RV ANY HELP OUT THERE

I understand how sometimes people can accidentally type with the "caps lock" on. I don't understand how some people type By Capitalizing The First Letter Of Each Word. It Takes Extra Time And Is A Lot More Work. Also, Why Do People Ignor Sppel Chek? Mainly because the spell check feature doesn't work on these forums.

RE: LEMON RV ANY HELP OUT THERE

Simple: Inverter fire. Problem with sewer. Turned away from the dealers because Evergreen doesn't pay their bills. Now....any suggestions for the OP instead of his typing? :)X-2, I can't believe their are so many people on here that put more into typing, (CAPS or Spelling) than the actual post it's self, I had no problem whatsoever understanding the OP's post, actually made it easier for my old eyes to read. It's no wonder some people post a topic here then never come back. I only wish I had some help for the OP.

RE: Roof Racks most have

If I didn't already have that useless thing up there I would never add one. I noticed many new RV's dont have them anymore.X-2, wouldn't have it if it hadn't come with it. You have a MH, but don't have a car??? :?
