RE: Privacy Awning Pros, Cons

As mentioned it will keep some of the sun off the mat area under the awning. It can also stop some of the breeze you might get. All depends on the direction the wind comes and which way you are parked. Usually the view is not totally blocked but is at least filtered. They are not usually used for short term parking.

RE: Handy Hints, Gadgets, Products & Gizmos

Was thinking about this thread just the other day and realizing I hadn't seen anything new. I haven't done it yet, but I'm considering a motion-activated light near the door for when we forget to leave our porch light on. It may have to be one that we remove when we are on the road. Does anyone have a good idea for this? We installed a battery operated motion light From Amazon while still in Florida and it has stayed on for the trip to MI and a thousand miles since. One was installed just above the keyhole and the other in the stepwell of the DP. It only comes on when you get close and does not stay on long. Just enough to get things unlocked.

RE: Fuel economy

Average 5000 miles per year at 65 or below. 8.5-9mpg while using Flying J on the truck side, DP. With the toad I can't always get out on the car side but get another 3% back with my AARP Visa so it is another $75 back per year. Don't worry about economy but watch the Silverleaf and see what it is tracking on mileage. We stop every couple hundred miles for the dog and I. Fill up at or before half since we are stopping anyway.

RE: Slides - Monaco & Holiday Ramblers Owners

Had minimal damage on the flush floor and installed the Guardian Plates last summer. Went easy once you get over the fear of doing it. Popping the rivets is the hardest item. Don't wait as the rot can move quickly.

RE: Standby Sams

As a Standby Sam I was always ready to help anyone who might call. Never worried about the .1% of the people who would call and not be decent. Sorry the program was recently ended but it is what it is. Now I don't need to e ready to help when you have a problem.

RE: Restrictions on older RVs.

The Zep process worked very well on my 03 Neptune. Very easy to do.

RE: snowbirding

If you want to be near Mobile AL then in Theodore a very good park is "All About Relaxing". Great hosts and owners. Much to do in the area on the island and the battleship visits. All About Relaxing

RE: What is going on!!!!!!!!!

I had a Jayco TT that did the same thing. Added a shutoff valve on the overflow line. Opened when filling and closed after full.

RE: Door stop--or whatever its called

You will find alot of detail on this part in the Monaco Facebook pages. I replaced mine with a shock and it works great. My old hinge would let the door get open and then not be able to close unless I touched it by hand. That was a pain.

RE: Length restricted rv parks

I have not seen any parks advertise a length limitation but if you look at the site there may not be any that are empty that will fit a rig of that size. They may have one or two but you may also never be able to get one of those. There is a Michigan State Park that has 5 sites that are good for 40 foot but you would never make the turn at the end of the row if anyone else is in the park.

RE: 12v not working

Helped a friend with slide in camper and we found a GFI way underneath in the rear. Did not look tripped but I tripped it and then reset. From that point on all worked. Saved calling a RV Tech out to the campground.

RE: Home monitoring system?

Why bother with all this monitoring. I like to also know what is going on in an around the house. If there is an intruder I'll have my son, 4 doors down, board up the windows or door when the perps leave. Don't want him going in when they are there. The rest is insured. Alexa will even notify me if there is a loud noise and I can then see what is happening. Two Echo units still running covers the house. Cameras cover the doors and windows. Doorbell camera gives what is outside and if they shoveled the snow. I can also see if we want to come home yet.

RE: Lake Superior Circle (September 2020) Reservations?

Some of the campgrounds close as of Labor Day. We did the trip in August and had no problems except most of the areas were almost empty. I'd make reservations to be sure they are open.

RE: 50 AMP and plugging in at home

... Final note.. I know the TT-30 (30 amp) Outlet looks a lot like a 240 volt Big, Black, Large blades. MANY Electricians hired to install one will think that too. And blow all your electronics It is 120 volt. Says so right on the outlet. Had a friend just get this done by a licensed electrician and is now having the RV, brand new, fixed since it was 240V and not 120V. Question the electrician as to what he is installling and then double check with your own VOM.
