RE: Warning! Publci Toilet Hygene

We use our RV restroom rather than other facilities. But...we were on a return trip to our RV from Flagstaff to where our coach is parked. The motels we have stayed in and the tales related by others, and restaurants where there is high traffic are the reasons we RV but when away from it.....

RE: Warning! Publci Toilet Hygene

PC axe to grind seek to destroy truth and replace it with PC decrees eliminating truth and reason. down-home, I have no doubt that your post was not only xenophobic but ignorant. Your assumption that your rash was caused by fecal material is rooted in ignorance. Your immediate conclusion that 3rd world illegal immigrants were responsible for that fecal material is a terrible stance. This is my country. Attitudes like yours are poisonous and divisive. what saddens me most is that you will never, ever see that. Fecal Bacteria? Whatever the bacteria was that was on the individual's skin. Whether smeared there or whatever I can't say. Xenophobic a term used by the political left, slung about with abandon, without by those incapable or just don't reason, because of their prejudices and racism. I suppose you want a breakdown of heritage to justify your branding of xenophobia? Go home, Half of my ancestors were here thousands of years before yours. Is that what you want? Oh and they bathed every day even in freezing weather. Xenophobic to tell the truths about cultural including sanitary behaviors? Or did you mean racist or elitist or white supremacist or Red Man Supremacists? You have a pretty large lexicon Book of political mud to choose from. Me mad not at all, it would be silly to be mad at people who know not what they are talking about..

RE: Warning! Publci Toilet Hygene

Last time I was examined, in a hospital, I contracted MRSA. Yep, . . . . IN A HOSPITAL! It took injectable antibiotics to wipe it out. Now I go through about 4 gallons of hand sanitizer a year. I know for a fact that it won't kill MRSA though. It kills +99% of surface germs. That's the best I can do day to day. It's the 1% that gets ya every time. Chum lee There is a lot fMSRA now days. A whole lot of diseases unfamiliar in my youth and those that were familiar are becoming more common as the population swells. One get sick and ti spreads everywhere from exposure to it. Where Mama was raised in the mountains very few outsiders cm in until the mid sixties. There was little illness. Mama never had a cold even when he passed. This has nothing to do with RVing where we are drifting except we are exposing ourselves to more people along the way with possible illnesses.

RE: Warning! Publci Toilet Hygene

Day before yesterday we stopped at the Loves on I40 near Kingman,Az. We use the facilities. I got a mild rash on bottom of my upper leg, thies and bottom. Usually I carry a small pack of anti-bacterial wipes with me when I go into some place to use their facilities. Didn't this time. Lots of Illegals an others and certain religious people too, who use their hands to wipe their bottom but don't wash their hand or that was their accepted practice in the Mid East. We are grow people and our society is much cleaner than other societies and parts of the world. This is not a political attack!! Just a warning to start using precautions, Cleaning the toilet seat, seats in restaurants,door knobs in restrooms,when possible and our hands every time. Aggravating to have to carry a package of wipes with you but....Ya - I'd say you have more issues than a rash on your thies (sic) and bottom... I can think of lots more reasons a bathroom toilet seat at a Loves truck stop would be dirty, and none of them would guess fault due to someones country of origin or if their skin color was different than mine. Skin color has nothing to do with the subject. This particular station was an exchange point along a well used Drug ad Human Trafficking corridor, which elicited the comment as to a possible or probable source. Mexicans aere of many races The cultures are also different within the country. As to the other source there is now a lot of traffic by those of that Political/Religious persuasion and toilet habits; of many races and others alien to the US society in only one regard to what I wrote Societal norms of the third world, cleanliness and it is a valid observation not racist nor political in any way. should not have posted it because those with a political PC axe to grind seek to destroy truth and replace it with PC decrees eliminating truth and reason.

RE: Warning! Publci Toilet Hygene

Well I'm all about PC! Not Everyone here who has served in the Military or otherwise and seen other parts of the world have observed the same tings. Remember the classes, health precautions,cultures and the shots? Not one bit of what I said is racist! When truth becomes out of bounds because certain political people make it so, to shutdown opposition; it is a sad day when many accept what the political dictators decree you have to do!

RE: Trouble with California

Ag. Check points;we all know understand and tolerate them,never a problem. Couple of weeks ago we were heade to redwood. National forest from Grants Pas Oregon. Ag check ahead, ok I fall into line with everyone else,multiple lanes,cars trucks,other rv,s. Everyone pauses about thirty seconds and moves on. Normal right? My turn, she looks at my NY tags,Have you any fresh fruits or vegetables on board?" "No we Don,t" "w When was the last time this vehicle was in Ny?" "About 8or9weeks ago." She then grabs a flashlight and inspection miror and gives the undercarriage of both truck and trailer a thorough going over. She then does a second tour inspecting the roof area. I was quite surprised,but oh well not an imposition. "I would like to inspect the interior" "Not with out a warrant" "Sir Weare trying to protect our agricultural resources" "I understand that,bbut you are not entering my trailer without a warrant !" She gave me a look that could kill,and entered her both and made a phone call. Minute is so later she comes out,shoves a handful of invasive critter literature into my hand and said,"move on" Has anyone else been subjected to such nonsense,or did this inspector just have a bone for New Yorkers? Not sure of the large quantity of alien species now here, but....In 03 before Fire Ants were entrenched, we were looking at an RV at Camping World in Nashville. A used unit not really interested in but looked anyway. They just brought it up from South Ga, I think. Tons of Fire Ants cam out.

RE: "Leather" coming apart and peeling

Our 2005 has the ultra leather and is in great shape. A year or longer later they started using a cheaper ultra leather, or polyurethane I think it is. it was on these forums and others. We looked at Winnebago, some American Coach and the others and their seat covers feel like the really cheap car seat covers from Japan 30 years ago as well as the seats being smaller and hard and not fitting us.

RE: Haunted Honda CRV

No animated winders but.... My little AMG, four or five years ago, Dad's last cousin on his Mom's side passed. I went to in place of Dad, passed some time ago himself. I couldn't remember the name of the funeral home but the small town, I put in the main street address I would drive down it and fidn the funeral home. Got to town and GPS said turn right, destination ahead on the right so many feet. It was off a few feet but no name nor address, how did the GPS find it?

RE: Air brakes on Towed

One concern may arise. When we had our Saturn as a towed, applying the brakes hard in the coach would lock up the Saturn's brakes many times. Of course the Saturn was so light you didn't know it was back there. The10 and the 13 Edges no problems bu this new 19 Edge ST has larger and stronger brakes.Though a bit smaller is is about 400lbs heavier than the 13. Proportional response is the way to go. I looked n line at install and activation of Air Force 1 just a bit ago this evening. AIt still activates by the pedal arm. I had thought it worked on the master cylinder or brake lines. Looks to be the only two games in town it and Roadmaster. I thought there were more options.

Air brakes on Towed

Since 2006we have used the Roadmaster air brake system, with the cylinder that has to be installed an uninstalled every time you hook up or unhook. Airraid I believe is one brand,and Air Force One is another brand of under hood air braking system, that you don't have to disconnect or reconnect anything. Anyone comment on which one you use and of course prices?

RE: CW Flagstaff

We are in Kingman the center of nothing. People are leaving. We are here on a family mission for longer than expected. Flagstaff for VA. Wet to Henderson to find Camping World at first because it was closer than Vegas or Flagstaff

CW Flagstaff

WE were going to Flagstaff tomorrow and by Camping World. Wife looked on the Internet and it says store permanently closed. Last month went to Camping World in Henderson, Nevada. It took a long long time as GPS was over 12 miles. Decided when we couldn't first fine it to drive to the one in Vegas.The GPS put us about the same amount on the wrong side of town. Called the one in Henderson on the way back and got the right directions. Store had some few displays of larger items but not one thing that we went there for. What is going on?

RE: Oil headed for 70 bucks s barrel. Here we go.

Before Christmas n 93 toward Vegas we found, ata new Pilot, 4.99.9 for premium. The last few days in Bullhed City regular has been around 2.47. In Kingman it is 273 and up. It must be California refinery. Why are we still selling our oil into the Global oil Cabal to set prices far above what they should be, when we are poducign much more than we can use an storage is lipping full around the Country and world.

RE: Do y'all see the IRONY here?

Saw a mocha?colored Prius on the side of the road yesterday. Enough juice for flashers but that was all, apparently. Sh was on the cell so some help on the way. Wouldn't have done any good for me to stop, s I don't have any kind of adapter form 12 volt to whatever voltage plug. Ad it would have taken the rest of the eevening or longer to get her underway.

RE: Wierd bathroom water problem

This is one reason the primary reason for good or great water filters for every bit of water that enters the Motorhome not just the the drinking water spigot.Every new Motorhome has a built in filter system but older ones,, some don't, and mny times no body changes them and they bypass dirty water into the Coach. I've trying to figure out how to intall a filter inside our bay with limited space
