RE: Short Term Freezing Weather Tips?

We are also in TX south of Austin a couple hours. Supposed to get down to 7-8 degrees here and daytime highs are still below freezing. Water froze overnight 2 nights ago, then thawed during the day. It was disconnected and we run off the tank/pump. Furnace set at 60 at night. We shouldn't have a problem, but 19 is the lowest we have been at before with daytime above freezing. Looking at 3 days freezing or below here now. Can't wait for sunshine !!!

RE: Water hose for fresh water hook up

We have had good luck with the water hoses from Camco. Note I did say hoses. You have to remember that they often lay in the sun which will have an affect on how long they last. We are on our 3rd one in 10 years and are full-time.

RE: Smaller stove burner?

I have a diffuser I use for long low slow cooking. Mine turns down to barely a flame, but it still will make liquid boil after a long period of time.

RE: 2 nights required

Most parks do require a 2 night minimum on weekends and have for quite some time, at least any that we have been at. The county park where we are in the summer requires 2 nights for every reservation.

RE: Onan surging/backfiring. Brand new fuel pump/filter/carb

As someone else mention, check the air filter. Ours did that once and that is what it was.

RE: Need new 245/70R19.5 tires, Thnking Sumitomo?

We put Toyo's on and are very happy with them. That's what we will buy again.

RE: Class A travel without interstates

We travel off the x-ways as much as possible. Usually on US highways, state and county roads. We haven't had any problems and we miss the big cities. We also have never paid a toll in 10 years.

RE: Daschund legs

We previously had a doxie with a back problem. Both time it got bad the vet injected steroids to reduce swelling, bed rest other than potty and meal time and no jumping up or down and no steps. The 2nd time he couldn't walk at all, but it worked and he was still walking when he passed from old age. The problem is their back. Common problem for them.

RE: What is the most efficient way to bypass Chicago?

The ferry can't be any more expensive than what you would spend on fuel to drive there . I'd consider it.

RE: Fl to Mo thoughts

We take US60 across MO also - pretty flat and nice road. Not a lot of traffic.

RE: Dometic refrigerator frost and ice

I have a Norcold 1200 4 dr and I just shut it off, put the food in the big cooler and it defrost and water runs out the tray to the outside. Only takes a couple of hours. I do have to soak water up off the freezer bottoms though. Good time to clean it. We added one of the small fans on the rt side fin area and it has helped a lot. That was the area where the ice started all the time.

RE: Filling large propane tank on the road

We put an extend a stay valve on our onboard tank and have a 20# tank that we run off from, when it runs out, we switch the valve back to the big tank and we go fill the 20# tank. Saves us driving to get propane. Tractor Supply has great prices( not all locations have propane) When we are traveling, we then stop and fill the onboard tank. We also use electric heaters to supplement the furnace. Other than first thing in the morning, the furnace usually doesn't run during the day as the electric heaters keep us warm enough.

RE: Stimulus Payment Questions

Do you receive direct deposits from social security or some other government program? If you do, you should automatically receive it.

RE: Manual Carefree Colorado Awning issue

We've had springs break and there is no way you would not hear that happen. The springs do get old and have loose tension. We've replaced ours once but it's getting to the point again where we are using the awning hook to push up on the roller, it rolls up a little, push again, rolls up more, push again etc until toward the end it finally closes all the way.

RE: Living in a Trailer

Meantime, if you are really leaning that way, you could start downsizing by selling and donating a few things. Just in case you'll have a jump on it already.

RE: Looking for portable electric space heater for rv!

Just make sure whatever you buy has a heavier duty cord. The cheaper ones usually don't and they will get hot when plugged in running because the wiring is not sufficient for the load used. We have a Honeywell with variable speed. Sometimes it's just cool and you don't need the full power , just a little to take the chill off.

RE: Boondocking Etiquette

If you carry a ladder with you, we have seen people leave those set up on the site with a posted sign that says the site is "OCCUPIED". They either had the signs made, or found them to purchase some where. They were good size and easily seen. They often do that in campgrounds too.

RE: Best floor plan for 6 sleepers

If you have young children, you could always get a toy hauler and convert the back space to a bunk room. My daughter's family have an older travel trailer (about 36') that has 2 bunks in the rear as well as a 2nd dinette booth that folds down into a bed. They keep that booth down so it's 3 beds back there and they have a front bedroom. The dinette in the kitchen area can be folded down if needed as well as a pull out sofa which is a double bed. These are used as beds for when their kids have friends going with them. Don't know if you could find that type of layout in newer trailers or not. They got rid of their 5th wheel to have more room for the kids.

RE: Day night shade replacement suggestions?

We like our day/night shades too. I haven't found a reasonably priced replacement, but the newer colors also don't go, and most seem to have white for the day shade. Ours is a medium sand color with cream for the day shade. I don't really want stark white.

RE: Mail Forwarding Cost. Virtual Mail vs Priority Mail

Why is everything coming Priority Mail? Do you have large items or so much that you need that? Is it business instead of personal mail ? We just have first-class mail, with advertisements and junk mail automatically discarded and don't spend anywhere near what you do. We order our mail when we want it, but actually get very little paper mail. Most of our statements, notices or correspondence is online.
