Fly Spray

Is it just me? My old fly sprays used to kill the flies. But the last few years I've found the only way to make them work is to first immobilize the fly with a couple vicious blows with a fly swatter before squirting it.

RE: NEWBIE almost an owner! - air conditioning question

The AnimAlarm just needs a good enough cell signal to send a text message (which is a pretty low bar).shtml Unfortunately, there are still large portions of the country, mostly west of the Mississippi, where cell phone coverage is spotty to non existent. And coverage is very provider-dependent. So people who buy this device must verify its ability to connect.

RE: NEWBIE almost an owner! - air conditioning question

We have left our dogs in the RV for years. Campgrounds don't have rules against leaving dogs in the RV. The have rules leaving dogs unattended OUTSIDE. That's usually true, but we've stayed at more than one that had this rule. It makes some sense because some dogs bark from the time the owners leave until they get back. Ours don't. We leave them whenever we want. BTW, I just called this park, Saddle West, and confirmed. Pet Rules Pets (cats and dogs only) are allowed at the discretion of Saddle West. All dogs must be on a short leash (no longer than six feet) at all times when outside. Pets may not be tied outside the RV or left unattended.

RE: NEWBIE almost an owner! - air conditioning question

We looked at one of those this winter, it's a nice rig. As for the dogs, many RV parks don't want you to leave animals unattended. If the sun's out, these things get hot in a hurry if the ac fails or the park's power fails. We leave our three regularly but ask neighbors to check if it's hot. Ours bunk in the snow, so we don't think about a furnace! Have fun in your new rig.

RE: Ryobi 2200 - What Have I Got?

Just curious, but was the previously owned Champion an "inverter" type or not ? What model was it ? I have to go on memory here because it came with a used camper we purchased from a private party. I never used it other than to see if it would start. I gave it to the party that bought the trailer a couple years later. But I'm going to tell you that it was a 3500/4000 watt and a conventional model. I think they cost around $350 new. It was heavy and pretty noisy, I remember that for sure. Sorry I can't be more helpful, but I probably only saw it when I got it, started it and sold it.

Ryobi 2200 - What Have I Got?

A few weeks ago our area had an extended loss of electrical power. So without any choice on a Sunday night, I bought this generator. It did the job of keeping the freezer going and giving us the power we needed for most of the necessities. It was a lot quieter than the Champion we owned briefly a few years back. And at $600, it beats Honda and Yamaha on price. It has the ability to team up with a 2nd one, although I can't see that as something we'd ever need because we do very little dry camping, just an occasional overnight in a parking lot while traveling. But as we have just one battery, it will come in handy on those occasions. What experiences have you had with it and what are your opinions on its durability? Thanks.

RE: Warning! Caution! Warning!

You see, this is what is destroying our country. Losing opportunity after opportunity to scrub the gene pool. :B

RE: Warning! Caution! Warning!

Deja vu all over again. I nearly lost a thumb yesterday opening a $2 package of nail cable clips. Where was the warning that opening this package may cause injury or death???? On an everyday basis opening a package exposes us to far more real, not imagined, danger than its "hazardous" rubber bands or whatever else is inside. Yet, never a word of warning.

RE: New 5th Wheel to live in for 9 months in IL

I can't comment on the other two fivers but our Eagle is four years old and we've had no problems worth mentioning. We live at high altitude and have had occasion to spend nights when temps were in the teens. Used a lot of propane and got by. But I disconnected the fresh water hose and drained it so it wouldn't freeze. Not sure I'd be interested in living that way for several days, forget all winter. But if you're going ahead, look at Arctic Fox. Two good things will happen. You won't buy from a CW dealer you say you've already had problems with, and you'll get the closest thing to a real four seasons camper, if we can believe reviews. I see too that you're looking at bunk house campers. Tell me you're leaving the kids at the real home!

RE: New Lance 855 Anyone else having so many problems?

I'm sure your post will be moved to its proper place. In the meantime, all I can say is, you probably made a good move in not getting a slide with this mess.

RE: Vibe 279 RBS Ouside stud locations

With all due respect to the OP and his issue; I just cant help myself here I must say that I hope the trend to put TV's (and stereos) on the OUTSIDE of TT's am MH's DIES a QUICK DEATH. The last thing I want to see and hear in a Park or CG is someones idea of entertainment emanating from under their awning while the flickering blue light of the TV washes across my site and the noise of Situation comedy or Police Procedurals assaults my senses. I really believe these things should be kept inside. There is no way to watch a TV outside without disturbing your neighbors. x2

RE: Need a short triple bunk trailer

Just a suggestion, since you are totally new to RVing. Whatever you decide on purchasing, shoot for 30% off MSRP. Don't settle for a dealer's offer of 10%.

RE: Advice on 30 amp Install at Home

Well, I tried to buy a receptacle at Lowe's, an RV dealer and a plumbing outlet that has a lot of electrical parts. Nada. A lot were close, but none were right, like the TT30 mentioned here. I'm waiting to talk to Mark, my electrician, to see if he has one or if I should order online and hope it arrives in time. I have a medical procedure tomorrow (6:45 a.m.!) and probably will be silent for several days.

RE: Advice on 30 amp Install at Home

I really am impressed at all the helpful advice, but Soundguy woke me up to something I hadn't thought of, but my electrician probably would have caught. We live where the summer daytime temperatures rarely hit 80 mid day and nights drop into the low 40s, so no one has ac. As a result we have 50 amp service in the home. And for us at least, every major energy using appliance runs on propane. So even if th next rig has 50 amp service, which I'm sure it will, a 30 amp install will suffice. Most of our camping is in the desert nearby and wintering in the Phoenix area. So we miss not having 50 amp for more ac in the summer campouts and not being able to run our WH, microwave and toaster, etc., at the same time while full timing in winter. So 30 amp is what I'll have put in. And guests with their own RVs will have to do with that.

RE: Place to spend summer

I was recently told that the Pueblo South KOA in Colorado City is rated 3rd best KOA in the country. It doesn't surprise me at all. We've stayed there many times over the past five years and the owners and the facilities are great. It's just 20 miles south of Pueblo, another 35 to Colorado Springs & Manitou Springs with the Incline train up to the top of Pikes Peak, Cave of the Winds, Garden of the Gods and if you head west a half day's drive gets you into serious mountain and ski country. Ski towns are still fun in the summer. There's so much to see and do that half of Texas descends on us every summer!

No comments but I'm paying attention!

RE: Advice on 30 amp Install at Home

After pos ting I realized I should probably go 50 amp so it's ready for our next RV. This for our own TT that guests can use as a guest house. Glad I didn't already order the TT30. It's really more for me than them - I like my privacy in the wee hours. And I did catch the one post that would have it wired for a dryer, 220. No problem there, it'll be 120.

RE: Advice on 30 amp Install at Home

Thanks to all for such quick responses! My guy is fully licensed, etc., and has a great reputation in the area. I will make sure I see 120 before he leaves and will have the TT30 receptacle before he comes. And I'll offer him the diagrams and other things you've recommended. He won't turn his nose up, I know. Only problem I've had with his work was the 220 he ran to the room above the garage for the baseboard heaters. I suspect my cutting the line with the auger may have had something to do with that. LOL

Advice on 30 amp Install at Home

Our electrician will be coming soon for needed work, and while here I want to add 30 amp service so kids can use it when visiting and have more power available than what I have now, which is using an adapter and standard residential duplex receptacle. He's excellent but does residential and commercial work, not RV stuff. I've read here and elsewhere about problems arising due to the differences in RV wiring. He won't be touching the RV itself, but still, is there anything he should know now that might otherwise catch him by surprise and cause trouble when I plug the power cord into the new receptacle?

RE: Tv external wiring

IMO you're better off without one. The two TTs we've had had them, and they were a headache. As suggested, and drill a hole and run your own RG6.
