RE: curtains for front windshield

We have a 2000 Monaco and I found that most ready made rv draperies were not sized to fit the windshield and side windows. They were not tall enough and not wide enough. I found some x-tra wide drapery panels online, still had to buy 4 of them. Talked to a dry cleaner and their alterations person agreed to re-make them into 2 draperies, shortened, hemmed and the tape with hanging clips sewn across the top. It's getting time to do something again. Have seen an idea to use fabric shower curtains with a solid color backing fabric to the outside - thinking of trying that.

Hello - enjoy the trip - better than the destination sometimes.

RE: Propane fill for parked motorhome?

It depends on where you are if the local regulations will allow them to fill on site or not. In TX - yes we could. In AZ - yes we could. In MS - No we could not. In AL - no we could not. It may even vary within the same state. We use an extend a stay with a 20# tank and it works out very well. Lasts for quite awhile unless it gets really cold. We run off the small tank and keep the big tank for use only until the small tank gets filled (usually within 1 day). We look for refills and not exchanges too.

RE: Campgrounds costing less than $20 per night

There are many of them that participate with passport america - you can review the website and it's campgrounds without being a member. We use them a lot. Love COE parks and pay $8 - $14 per nt with senior pass, and that parks are usually beautiful.

RE: bottle in holding tank

Another comment on TP - use any brand that's septic safe for 9 years - never a problem. The key is to use plenty of water when you flush. Too many people skimp on the water they use. Think a whole bowl of water if there are any solids . Never any chemicals - only water - no smell.

RE: LED light strips under awning?

We have the neon rope lights but have a special slot they slide into on our awning roller. Been using them 8 years now and still working fine. We like the because they give a decent amount of light but are not blinding.

RE: What to use to brighten rv?

Wax build up will yellow with heat. You probably need to strip the old built-up wax off and start with a fresh 1st coat. I discovered this when I was using LA Awesome trying to clean black streaks and it removed the old wax - big job though. Sprayed on straight, let it sit a minute or two, scrubbed with soft sponge with elbow grease then rinsed immediately working small areas at a time.

RE: Power Gear Leveling Jacks Leaking

Depends on how much leak, but we spent 1.5 years in the desert and ours started leaking quite a bit. Figured the dry climate may have dried out the seals, so we bought a bottle of Bar's Leaks Automatic Transmittion Repair - 2 part at Walmart, ( $8.88/red one side, yellow on other side of bottle) Put it in , and after using the jacks a few times, they stopped leaking and were holding in the position we set for level. It's now been 3 months and still working.

RE: Arizona winter stay campgrounds

Make reservations for at least Jan and Feb early. Most parks are filled unless you want to stay just a few days, maybe a week.

RE: Drawing water from a lake

I'd buy bottled water to drink, make coffee and maybe cook with. We don't usually buy our water, but in this case that's what I would do.

RE: Windy today

Google Cheap Handling Fix. We did front and rear on our F53 and it made a difference.

RE: Need list of states where Walmarts have wine!

Remember, some of the "yes" states could have dry counties where it won't be allowed.

RE: How do you share camping expenses?

We will be having that situation here with adult grandchildren. We are allowed to let someone pitch a tent on our site. There is no extra charge to us for that to happen but some places do charge extra for the tent. They will have to pay an entrance fee for their vehicle for each day they are here. As far as meals, I am in a class A, retired while they are young raising a family, so I will provide food for meals. They of course will bring snacks and drinks they may want. Have never had a situation like you

RE: Can I Get Away With a Quick Brake Job in a Campground?

We tend to stay at smaller campground (private) which will be found outside of cities. They usually are less expensive, probably dirt pads, maybe stone, and they seem to be much more accepting of someone washing their rig, doing some repair work etc. If you read their rules on their website and it doesn't specifically state no repairs allowed, try that campground. As another full-timer said to us "don't ask, just do it". What area are you in - maybe I can suggest a place.

RE: $100 per night

They will never see us! Never stay at KOA's.

RE: Purchasing a new RV

We sure can tell the difference of the dual pane windows vs the single pane windshield and the amount of cold. Huge condensation problem on single pane on the inside in cold weather - none on the dual pane. Well worth any extra money spent. Wouldn't be without them.

RE: Progressive RV Insurance

Also glad to hear this. We have had Progressive for a few years on our auto, motorcycles, trailer and motorhome, but have not had the need to use it -- hope we don't.
