RE: parts identification on an old shasta compact.

Hey Hegemon, that looks like a fun project. We picked up a '78 wilderness and had to deal with some rot. The nice part is that the aluminum "skin" comes off easy. Then we just replaced the wood and remounted the 'skin'. No special tools, except, I did borrow a pneumatic stapler from my construction buddy. As far as the 4 connections, I agree with BTPO1(Jack)...enjoy...

TOMMY47: your capability to control the situation, without knowledge, was probably your 'second nature' or 'cognitive ability' through years of driving or better yet like the songs says, "Jesus take the wheel"...whatever, you are okay and can rest assure that you have an innate capacity whether you know it or not... cheers...

RE: Have Norton Security===Need Malwarebytes Too??

I've used Norton for a few years now. In fact I just renewed and upgraded to the 360 elite. 5 compurters covered, which includes my Samsung Mega smartphone. I'm sure that all protection software does well. The reason I've continued to use Norton is that I have my files backed up automaticly to their site. It makes it easy to transfer files, too. :D

RE: Do You Hang Lights From Your Awning?

This is what I did. Replaced bolts on awning arms with eyebolts. Added wire with snap ring on one end and a turnbuckle on the other. When I hang the lights on the wire I use little bungees on either side to keep them taught. http://i1210.photobucket.com/albums/cc416/dannytas/RVs/Cougar/awningeyebolt2.jpg width=320http://i1210.photobucket.com/albums/cc416/dannytas/RVs/Cougar/awningeyebolt3.jpg width=320 http://i1210.photobucket.com/albums/cc416/dannytas/RVs/Cougar/awningeyeboltend1.jpg width=320http://i1210.photobucket.com/albums/cc416/dannytas/RVs/Cougar/awningeyeboltend2.jpg width=320 http://i1210.photobucket.com/albums/cc416/dannytas/RVs/Cougar/awninglightsopen1.jpg width=320http://i1210.photobucket.com/albums/cc416/dannytas/RVs/Cougar/awninglightsclosedlit.jpg width=320

RE: Do You Hang Lights From Your Awning?

to be smug about how anyone does anything while camping is obtuse. I'd love to use this in my signature line. May I? You may... :D

RE: Getting expensive

I know what you mean. The cost of camping is getting pretty expensive. Then I started looking at other peoples "passions" and I would be hard press to "hang" with any of them. Example: cycling, some of those bikes are over $5,000 aproaching twice that amount. Star gazing: check out some prices of those telescopes lately? Kyakis: I could buy a four wheeled motorized vehicle for the cost of the elite models. Even something as simple a photography. All the specialize equipment cost a bundle. But the one thing that I learned about all the "passions" that we all have, is that there is a way to do it on the "cheap". Not having to have it all. Or the very newest and best. Get what you can afford and do without and make it happen. My dad used to tell me: you can have anything that you want, you just can't have it all. Cheers!! :D

RE: Gaudy colored and striped RV's

Really...who's to say how much is too much? Everyone is different with various levels of "like". So am I to tell you, or anyone, that your "taste" in anything is bad. Please tell me that this is just to get everyone fired up!! I don't think anyone was telling anybody else their taste was bad. They were just suggesting they don't care for some of the current trends. No body was making or taking it personally. This is the perfect subject to discuss here. Maybe somebody in the industry will read it and get a hint. Okay, I stand corrected. But when poster use the words "gaudy" and "no account for taste" and post pictures of rigs with custom paint jobs, it just sound a little personal. I may just need to grow a bit thicker skin. Cheers!! :D

RE: Do You Hang Lights From Your Awning?

When I'm done using the lights and want to see stars, I simply turn them off. What a silly reason to go without a nice conveneince. Right, when "you're done using the lights....", meanwhile, the rest of us are waiting for you to be done using them in order to view the night sky without all the extraneous light pollution.Oh - give me a break... When I want to see stars, I don't whine about light pollution or wait untill who knows when- I go (hike) where there isn't any light. To complain about lights at night in a CG or expect total darkness is ridiculous. Real stargazers go to desolate places to observe stars. Not to a camp ground. I whole heartly agree. To complain about anything in a "campground" is just that: Complaining. You want peace and quiet. You want no noise. You want no lights. Go where there is NO ONE. And to be smug about how anyone does anything while camping is obtuse.

RE: My removable Battery Bank!

I really like this idea of a portable battery pack. Thanks for the insight...

RE: I'm still convinced these people are crazy.

I've bought a few rvs, some with cash and some on time. I have never had an rv for the full contract time. Even if I bought "on time" with a higher interest rate, I would later get another loan, through the credit union, with a lower rate. But even my new rvs, I've never owned for more than 2 years. So maybe I'm not one to address this issue. Never mind...

RE: Stuff to do while camping.

First off, it takes me hours to set up camp. That's my fun time. DW and I have marathon "mexican train" and "yahtee" tornaments. We also get the best exercises while walking our dogs. At the end of the day we watch a good movie. :D

RE: Well, we bought the tug!

At least you're doing it in the "right" order. We traded our Class C motorhome for a 37' fifth wheel. After we made the deal, on the way home we had to buy a truck. I was kinda backwards...

RE: RV garage driveway length

Make sure it's long enough to wash your trailer and truck out of the garage...
