RE: Closing thread fixes error message.

I can re-open it if you have something to add. I just got tired of deleting flames.

RE: Mice and soap

Yup, the shop at the RV store where I work pulls half-eaten bars of Irish Spring and beds made from dryer sheets out of the campers we store every spring. And yet the myth perpetuates.

RE: how do you keep sewer tank clear

If you use anything other than lots of water, try The Geo Method. On the road I do this once a month. On regular seasons twice a year. DO avoid treatments with Formaldehyde. They leave a residue that messes with the sensors. It's not a coincidence that the company that sells these products (starts with C ends with O) also sells sensor cleaners.

RE: Boycott “No Campfires”

I'm amazed this thread's lasted this long. It's a "he said/she said" type of situation where there's no right or wrong. As long as people stay (somewhat) civil, a good back and forth is healthy for the forum.

RE: Modern Food?

If the food is so poor, how do we explain our fat asses? I think most of you just resent having to pay for restaurants. grease, growth hormone and engineered food.And the biggie: laziness and sloth. Ice cream.

RE: Modern Food?

If you want to find out what the heart-healthy low cholesterol warriors have done to french fries, go to Prince Edward Island. Best I've ever had, so I had to ask; what's the secret? Well, of course they grow the potatoes there, but the secret is lard.

RE: TOGO comments?

The ToGo has several antennas, a WiFI and cell booster and a wireless router all built in. It also eliminates the metal box problem of trying to get a MiFi signal outside the coach. The AT&T plan is truly unlimited, not throttled above 25 gig like the FMCA Verizon plan. The only down side is the slightly less coverage you get on the AT&T network. The Verizon hotspot would be a good backup. YouTube Review

RE: How do they get in?

From an exterminator friend. Go to your camper one night with a black light. Apparently, mice have no bladder and are constantly peeing. You should be able to see their tracks using a black light and that should lead you to the point of entry (or a nest).

RE: First Diesel Pusher Drive

One adjustment I had to make was to anticipate light changes a little better. Most of my panic stops involved red lights. Now when I see a green light, I assume it will be red when I get there and adjust my speed accordingly. Believe me, it is an adjustment. I'm one of those drivers that got annoyed when people slowed down for a light, yelling "Green means go!!!". Some lights have a pedestrian walk lights that start flashing 5-10 seconds before the light changes. It's a good indicator to look for.

RE: Boycott “No Campfires”

I guess this explains the recent trend of putting electric fireplaces under the 60 inch TV in RVs lately. I thought it was silly, but maybe the manufacturers were onto something. https://i.imgur.com/FXrVheOl.jpg

RE: RVs and California's Planned Power Outages

Although considered a vacation paradise, Cape Cod is a third world country when it comes to infrastructure (unless you wear Spandex and ride a bike). When I first moved here, power went out any time the wind speed went above 25 knots. I finally got sick of the uncertainty and installed a natural gas generator to power the critical circuits in the house. I think it costs me about $5k in 2001. Whenever the power went out and the Generac kicked in, I would go outside and do my "Screw You NStar" dance. Within 2 years all of my neighbors followed suit. The Sahara sits in a storage lot 3 miles away when not on an adventure. Within an hour I can have the essentials on the bus and be off-Cape in 10 minutes to 3 hours depending on how much traffic is in the 1 mile between the storage yard and the bridge. Like I said, it's a third world country.

RE: Deceptive traffic citations

I'm getting a kick out of the posts recommending a court fight. If the police are crooked enough to write bogus tickets, what makes you think their brother-in-law the judge will be any less crooked?

RE: Good RV repair shop

Why would CW ignore you? Parts, labor...a fairly nice profit. They're having tough rime keeping up with warranty work. The CW in our area is quoting 3 months wait.

RE: Eternabond vs Dicor

Ask Eternabond. Installed properly it will NOT come loose. So your entire argument is "The manufacturer who gets all the profits from the sale of their product recommends this"?

RE: Eternabond vs Dicor

ReneeG is correct. Eternabond and Dicor is the preferred practice at the shop. One reason not to use Eternabond alone on the vents and skylights is that it is difficult to roll the tape down around screws. You can see the lumps in the tape where the seam screws are in my pic. Rolling the tape activates the adhesive. As I mentioned, the shop has switch over to Proflex for skylights, vents, solar panels and WiFi antennas.
