Be aware that the road construction on Hwy. 50 will continue through summer 2023. https://www.us50info.com

RE: Aqua-Hot in Cold Weather - Issues with Performance?

Which controller do you have? Silver one? or the newer one from Aquahot? There was a black controller (I think made by Spheros?) that was problematic. The newest one from Aquahot should be better but expensive at ~ $1000 There is a guy who rebuilds the silver boxes, can't remember his name but he is on ebay.

RE: Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injection

In the last 15-20 years I've had shots for 2 herniated discs in lower back. They gave me relief for a period of time but now I'm having nerve ablations done which give me better and longer relief. These are done as out patient in my doc's office under a local. A bit of discomfort but better than "going under." Just realize that none of this cures the problem, just gives you some relief from the pain. At some point I'll need surgery but I'm trying to avoid that as long as the NA works.

RE: Alaska - 2023

Another tip while traveling through Canada make note of Canadian holiday weekends and expect Provincial campgrounds to be pretty full.

RE: Good enclosed cig lighter socket?

Search on Amazon, there are some that have a locking ring that helps to retain the plugin.

RE: Severely damaged windshield … is yourMH totaled ?

Some manufacturers used commonly available parts including windshields. They just may not want to tell you that. Check for a forum for that model and you might find it uses a GM or other windshield.

RE: dinghy towing question

I bought 4 large washers and put one on each side of the pin. That helps keep the cotter pin isolated.

RE: TV & 30 ft TT to Mini Van and 17 ft TT

We have a 2011 Roadtrek 210P on a Chevy chassis with 6 liter engine and 6 speed transmission. We average about 15mpg driving at 60mph. I also just towed our Lexus GX470 with it and averaged 12 mpg. Our Roadtrek has everything needed built in. And is much easier to drive than a small car pulling a small camper. Just another option.

RE: Turn Your Regular Grill into a Smoker - Easy

I've been using a Carpathen smoker tube for a few years now and it works fantastic with pellets to produce lots of smoke. There are many different brands out there.

RE: Louisiana RV Parks - Shreveport and Baton Rouge

Lamar Dixon in Gonzales is off I-10 just east of Baton Rouge and has large gravel pull throughs with full hookups. When you drive in there is a campground to the right but go to the right behind the large buildings and you'll see the larger campground. Also Cabela's also in Gonzales allows overnight RV parking to the right of the store.

RE: Water Pressure Regulator

I've done the tank fill & use method for over 8 years and had no problems with pumps. Another benefit to doing this is if your tanks are in a heated basement and the water coming out of the ground is 36º is has a chance to heat up before you use it.

RE: Dentist in Mexico

https://www.dentaldepartures.com is a great resource. We've used Ciro Dental for a few years and have had cleanings, crowns and my DW has had an implant there. There are dental labs in Los Algodones so a crown, etc. only takes a couple days. We did try one of the large clinics once because our Dentist was out of town and were thoroughly disappointed. First we had to pay up front, then came the hard sell for all kinds of services. Finally after sitting over an hour waiting for our cleaning and seeing people walking up and getting serviced before us we decided to give up. Took over an hour to get our money back. There are a couple hundred dentists in Los Algodones so there is much competition to provide great prices and service. Nice parking lot at the border, walk across, then go through customs to get back into the USA. Bring your Rx's list and check out eyeglass prices there also.

RE: Solo fire pit

I thought about and almost bought one but decided to get this instead, may not be as smokeless: https://www.ebay.com/itm/184629779053 Note that this is for my cabin but since it's collapsible and built out of heavy steel should work for an RV. This is another brand that is very similar: https://www.ebay.com/itm/304266221025?hash=item46d7ae15e1:g:V90AAOSwuj5hui4~ Also there are many copies of the Solo (not sure who copied who).

RE: Is there an Air Conditioner using Inverter Compressor

The roof mount cassette units are just the evaporator, you still have to mount the compressor somewhere else. Also the cassettes are larger than the standard 14" square opening in RVs. There was one being developed in Australia a few years ago but I think Dometic gobbled them up. Probably killed the unit since it was a competitor. An inverter rooftop AC would be a game changer! There are some inverter window units available now.

RE: This the season

Not limited to northern states. Here in Louisiana our winters are very mild yet most road construction occurs during the summer. Why? Who knows. Construction could easily be conducted during the winter and there would be more out of state contractors willing to bid on jobs and more workers available. Nice to keep our local contractors busy but it would at least force them to lower their prices. A bridge over the Mississippi River near us has had ongoing construction by our DOT personnel for a few months now. They tear up the surface one day then about a week later they resurface it. Then after a couple weeks paint lines on one side. Then a couple weeks later paint the signs on the other side. Then along comes the parish and digs up the new road surface to lay a new drainage line. Wash, rinse, and repeat. Deja Vu all over again. Meanwhile there is major multi year construction on I-10 at Baton Rouge that will force traffic down to 1 lane on both east and westbound lanes. Just a heads up for anyone traveling through BR this summer.

RE: Feels like I hit the Jackpot

Mouse probably saw a hamster running on a wheel and decided to try it. Had that happen to my sewer air pump at our S&B. Pump quit, pulled out the mangled POS and it ran fine.

RE: Just give me the bad news.

For a 2015 I'd list it on Facebook marketplace and note the problems. It'll sell for more than you can imagine. Someone will buy it and fix the problems and flip it for twice what they paid you. That truck is in very high demand right now. Or go to Edmunds or Carmax and have them give you a quote. Edmunds will connect to you with local dealers who will check it out and adjust the cash offer for the problems. If you disclose the problems you shouldn't have any bad feelings.

RE: Renogy Battery Monitor vs Trimetric UPDATE- Camping Test

I like the Victron BMV-712 also since it has bluetooth and you can adjust it and see everything on your phone or MacBook. Their Smart Shunt is the same thing without the gauge, great value if all you want is a bluetooth unit.
