RE: Overhang

He would have made it easy if he'd been going 20-25mph faster...

The Fascinating Evolution of the American RV

Interesting & quick pictorial history. http://www.msn.com/en-us/autos/enthusiasts/fascinating-evolution-of-the-american-rv/ss-AADzjvj?ocid=ientp 120 slide show inside the Elkhart RV Hall of Fame & Museum. Link popped up in morning news feed sidebar.

RE: Coffee on the road

What you really want and need is one of these: https://tse4.mm.bing.net/th?id=OIP.i6MOeDQmipxfpdkREdkTSQHaBr&pid=Api&rs=1&p=0 .52 caliber Sharpe's Carbine with grain and coffee grinder in the butt stock. Not only does it give you fresh-ground beans, it provides a permanent solution to vermin and varmints.

RE: Camco RV Wall Clock

We got this for now. In a few years when I retire this goes to the Salvation Army store and I hang the days-only clock - almost identical but with no hour numbers and a single finger. https://www.magnamail.com.au/images/product/square/medium/WCLOC.jpg

? Battery Fan in Residential Fridge?

Is a battery circulation fan useful with a residential type refrigerator? Always used a couple of those battery-powered fans with the ammonia-propane refrigerator in the trailer; new RV has a glass shelf residential refrigerator. Is there any real benefit to using the fan with the new fridge?

RE: Proper Cheese

Here or on burgers, dogs, brats and mac-cheese my 1st choice is Velveeta. I've been a Velveeta addict since I was old enough to bite a mouthful off the brick. PS (edit) -- DW makes her M&C with white Velveeta and throws in a chopped onion before baking. More than just comfort food, it's Heaven for the body, soul and taste buds.

? Pilot & Navigator Seat Covers?

Any & all recommendations, comments, etc, are welcome. Want to get comfortable, well-fitting, driver & navigator seat covers for the coach. Internet searching shows me only one selection that may fit: "Grip Fit Universal RV Seat Covers" available at Camping World and Amazon. My initial reaction is to shy away from these because one of the reviews says they're vinyl and I can't think of anything much more uncomfortable to sit on than vinyl.

? Housefly/Flying Insect Trap for Coach?

Any recommendations? Looking for something better than the fly ribbons we used to use when we had the 5er - used to be no problem hanging a somewhat-shortened fly ribbon with that high ceiling. We're in a coach now and there's no way we can use the same fly ribbons with that much-lower ceiling. Non-options include anything that gets glue- or sticky-tape stuck in the RV like those stick-on window sticky traps.

What have you bought from IKEA for your RV and how well does it do what you want it to do?

? Quartzsite Auto Parking and/or RV Park Recommendations

Recommendations, opinions, comments, whatever. Anyone's 2c welcome. DW hip surgery greatly limits how far and fast she gets around ("not very" on both counts). She wants to experience Quartzsite 2020 but doesn't want to participate in any hiking treks to get to anything.

RE: New coffee maker

For years we used this Coleman stovetop (or campfire) drip maker. Works great. https://i5.walmartimages.ca/images/Large/926/392/999999-76501926392.jpg

RE: Wasps in camper. Best way to remove?

Whatever you do, do NOT try spraying them with Off or any other insect repellent. Yes, voice of painful childhood experience.

? Atomic Beam Motion-Sensor Light

DW got one of these at WM thinking it'd be a good addition to the RV. I suspect she's right (as usual) but have a couple of questions. Is the light so bright it's going to wake up the neighbors whenever a skunk or coon walks by it in the middle of the night? And how does the stickum hold up to traveling? https://i5.walmartimages.com/asr/c4efb21b-edb7-41cb-b3b4-9bdb4be5aeb5_1.fc9cd99b911504011067cb4a9db54e1b.jpeg?odnHeight=450&odnWidth=450&odnBg=FFFFFF

? Inverter Ques

Search unsuccessful. Inverter "mentioned" but operation not covered in walk-thru (didn't know it had an on-off switch until a funny noise got me to looking for the source). Should we leave the inverter "ON" all the time or are there times it needs to be turned off?

? Heat & Air on Ford Chassis?

Does Ford motor provide enough heat/air for comfort or do you have to run the RV heat/air for comfort?

? Loaded Dinghy Ques

What's wrong with towing a loaded dinghy? Saw a photo of a towed dinghy with a couple of canoes or kayaks on the roof with the "Do Not" circle and slash superimposed. Probably saw it on Pinterest, but couldn't open or enter whatever the site was for an explanation. Got me to wondering what would be verboten about us dolly-towing our dinghy with our kayaks on top. ?

RE: ? Instant Pot Questions

Thanks, all, appreciate the comments. Will pass on to DW. Whatever she wants, don't matter to me. PS--WanderingBob...think you're wandering a bit too far.

? Instant Pot Questions

Your opinion which is "best": The Original Instant Pot or one of the other-brand knock offs? For the two of us, is the 3qt 'plenty big enough' or do we 'really want' the 6qt?

RE: ? Pot & Pan Set w/Covers

Thanks All! DW says she'll try the Michelangelo set, likes that there's a cover for everything but the small fry pan and likes the non-teflon noin-stick surface.
