RE: Atlanta Explained

A headline article in yesterday's AJC says to expect a DECADE of construction.

RE: Generator Repair

I'd be looking at propane feed lines and the regulator. When my old Onan quit the tech found that the line to the generator and the regulator were full of oil. He said that all propane contains a little oil and it just accumulates over time. Perhaps a night of icy cold helped it along. The regulator was still dripping oil a day after removal. At any rate, a regulator and line shoud be fairly ordinary items.

RE: Proflex?

Proflex is good goop. No reason to do anything else.

RE: LP or electric on a meter

I's seen written a few times that $2 a gallon is approximately equal to 10 cents per kWh.

RE: Refrigerator temp

In central Florida I'm seeing about 35F in the wee hours of the night and 45F in the afternoon. It's been working that way in summer for the past eight years.

RE: Fiat 500 for flat towing questions

Where did you run that line inside?

RE: Fiat 500 for flat towing questions

Only the manual-transmission Fiat is flat-towable. The key isn't needed for the steering. The lighter/accessory outlet is switched by ACC. You could jumper the breaker to make it always live, run a new wire to an outlet or use an accessory battery pack. The Fiat forum folks appear to believe the jumpering the breaker won't blow up anything but no one's actually done it. I'll do that when I get around to installing the brake. I'm legal without braking but I intend to go with a RVI Brake. I have a Roadmaster air brake rig I used on the Tracker but it won' t work with the Fiat, and it's kind of an overall kludge anyway.

RE: voting and driver license issues with full time

Did Capital One kick out a Rainbow Drive domicile address? A place that you could actually life at? So people that reside at the park wouldn't be accepted as Capital One customers?

Escapees address?

RE: voting and driver license issues with full time

Merrill wouldn't accept it, no way, even after I had been a customer for years and was simply changing the address. One Amex account accepted it, and one wouldn't. I gave up on the second and simply continued to use the existing address...which was a PMB (UPS Store). Chase apparently didn't care. It doesn't matter if you put apt or whatever if it shows up as a commercial mail facility.

RE: voting and driver license issues with full time

The camel in the tent that you didn't ask about is that financial institutions are unlikely to accept a PMB address.

RE: Fish bowl cooling class A

I read "fishbowl" in the rv forums at least 10 years ago, perhaps this one.

RE: Are damage deposits at parks customary?

I've never heard of it until now in 13 years fulltiming. I wouldn't do it.

RE: Storms and Tornados

Don't be up in Dixie Alley before June 1; stay south of I-10 and east of I-95. And the same goes for the classic Tornado Alley. If an outbreak is forecast, go south and/or east. In the past two outbreaks _three days_ warning was given, plenty of time to move to avoid the weather. This of course applies to travelers, not stationary people. Stationary RVers might want to rethink where they are. If you can move, there's really no excuse.

RE: Any option for re-filling MH Propane Tank from Small Tank?

Residential and "recreational" propane are priced differently; that's probably what's going on.

RE: Dollar General grocery?

I read an interview several years ago with the CEO of Dollar General / Family Dollar; he clearly stated that his strategy for competing with Walmart was to put a dollar store on every corner. Looks like he's succeeding.
