RE: Painting interior??

I have painted most of the interior of my trailer, we love it. I washed the walls with soap and water to make sure there were no greasy/dirty places. I did not use a primer, the real high quality paints have incredible sticking power. Number one advice! Use the best, premier brand paint you can buy. I used Sherwin Williams their highest grade. It was about 50.00 per gallon retail. Don't skimp on paint quality. You will be sorry. If you are going to all the work to prep and paint buy the best paint. Jesseannie

RE: All my GFCI outlets are dead.

Only one of my outlets are on the inverter. My GFCI outlets only work on shore power? Jesseannie

RE: 100 days till snowbirding........ maybe not

We will be heading south as usual in late October. WA virus isn't much different than AZ and we don't need to be in close contact with anybody when we are traveling unless we choose to. We can go a long time with the 100 gallon fresh water and equivalent holding tanks. We aren't close to anyone when fueling either. We would rather be distancing from others in warm weather than in cold weather. I think it is possible to RV anywhere in the country safely. But you have to be smart and acknowledge the seriousness of tge pandemic. It sounds to me like you have thought it through and have a good plan. The only problem I see is if Arizona, Florida and Texas continue like it is currently the medical facilities will be overwhelmed and then if you have a non-covid emergency you may not get the care you need. Good luck.

RE: Installed new kitchen faucet.. success

Yes, yes I did feel a little super human, until the next morning I was sore in places I forgot I had. But I am still rejoicing. Jesseannie

Installed new kitchen faucet.. success

I had a leaky faucet and i needed to change out. To reach it I had to dismantle the shelves and storage under the sink, Sawing, drilling and demolition tools were required. After laying down 4 layers of throw rugs for padding I inserted my too big body in the cabinet. After sweating, cursing and grunting I was able to get the old faucet out. Made a trip to Lowes for parts, new faucet, pex style shutoff and misc clips and clamps. Back under the cramped space under the sink I got everything installed. The moment of truth was when everything was turned on. It worked! Eureka! No leaks! This was the first time I have ever done a plumbing repair job with only one trip to the hardware store. I took the rest of the day off to celebrate. Jesseannie

RE: Electric Bikes???

Great info on e-bike from actual users. The poster who said to get your advice from a dedicated forum is not totally correct. Thanks Jesseannie

Changing batteries with solar

I am updating my 2 6 volt batteries with 2 new of the same type/size etc. I remember (fuzzy brain) having to cover the panels when I did the final hookup when installing the panels. Do I need to take the same precautions when switching to my new batteries? Jesseannie

RE: Sad state of national parks and public lands.

cptqueeg, it is interesting that you should say "enjoy it before it goes up in smoke." When we were in Idaho a couple of years ago, that is exactly what the ranger said to us -- the bark beetle was spreading, and the forests were on borrowed time. Someday the forests will recover, long after I am gone. The mtn pine bark beetle which attacks mainly lodgepole pines is now no longer limited by elevation because winter temps have moderated (both low temps and the length of time at low temps) so it's attacking limber pine in the alpine zone which is now a threatened species. There are many other bugs out there working away on all the other species of trees as well. Limited moisture puts stress on trees and they are no longer able to repel attacks from bugs. The dying and dead trees then are prime fuel for fires. When I was on fire crews here in central Idaho way back before the turn of century we called the forests the asbestos forest. That is no longer the case as virtually the entire region has been burned over in the last 20 years. While some foresters wanted to start cutting way back when timid managers and an others kept that from happening. It surely would have looked different than it was, but folks couldn't accept the inevitable. Things are never going to remain the same and I doubt the forest in Central Idaho will ever be anything like what it once was. Did you see Yellowstone Forever closed up could not naked financially. Too bad!

RE: Carlisle Sport Trail LH Bias Trailer Tire

I have that tire on my travel trailer. Bought in early 2016. I have driven a lot of moles on them no problem. I always check pressure and run them between 45-50 PSI. Trailer is about 6K loaded. Jesseannie

RE: Senior Citizens Speak Up

“Especially those of us on fixed income, with no hope of annual raises.” Your Social Security isn’t fixed. Go back to work if you are in “dire straights.” Widdis you are consistent! We can ALWAYS count on you for a negative offensive post. Congrats, again you have not let us down.

RE: Looking for old RV fridge repair in Boise, ID

When we lived in Boise we used Boise RV repair in Garden Valley. They repaired my fridge and serviced my Water Heater in 1995 trailer plus did all my annual maintenance. Good guys. Jesseannie

RE: What to use for new wall paneling

I have installed thousands of sheets of 3/32 inch FRP in every situation from commercial bakeries cold storage units to outdoor car wash bays. It should be applied with a full glued back over 1/2 inch (or more) plywood. It is extremely durable bright white, cleanable and has trims to make a very attractive installion. We used to put 8 ft high 45 foot rolls in refrigerated semi trailers. Great stuff. Jesseannie

RE: North Whidbey Rv Park @ Oak Harbor,WA

Here is link to Deception Pass State Park Washington State Parks are very expensive. Rates Very expensive? $40 to $50 for a FHU site? What is considered not very expensive? Washington parks a 10-20 per night more than the beautiful state parks in Oregon. Triple what seniors pay in national parks and forests. We love Washington but we can't afford their parks. Jesseannie
