RE: Where to watch rocket launch in or near motorhome?

Thanks!

RE: Where to watch rocket launch in or near motorhome?

We have to get back. It takes us 2 easy days. That cut out is perfect for a short motorhome. I'm at a rest area just outside of St. Augustine. I hope they don't kick me out.

RE: Where to watch rocket launch in or near motorhome?

Great spot, but no joy on the launch. Some traffic getting out, but not that bad. We're 0 for 2 for launches. Maybe next time; and maybe it will be at night!

RE: Where to watch rocket launch in or near motorhome?

We made it. No one is here. There was a cut out in the curb big enough for the MH and I u-turned my way in. I don't know if this will work or not. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49942002277_e81fa91f79_z.jpgUntitled by jspringator, on Flickr

RE: Where to watch rocket launch in or near motorhome?

Thanks. We're going to try Space View Park. I undertand why they don't want people watching. We've been in FL since Sunday, and nobody here wears a mask. They don't appear to care for the 6 feet concept either. I look like a freak with my wrap around safety glasses and KN-95 mask. At home I was just like everybody else. It is an easy painless step that protects me and protects you. I don't want to be indoors more than 10 minutes, even with a mask. I'm going to watch from the MH. If we can't make that work, we're heading to the Walgreens. The park opens at 8, and we'll be there shortly thereafter. If they cancel, we'll just head home. We had to cancel our spring trip, and probably won't get a summer one. Our out of state quaranteen was lifted on Friday and we left on Saturday night. Courts open on the first, so this was our shot. We're both working virtually. No restaurants and very limited shopping. Our generator stopped working, and I seized up something trying to re-start it, so I had to go into Walmart to buy a turkey baster. Sucked out some oil and used a 9/16 wrench on the flywheel to loosen everything up and no problems since. Google is your friend.

Where to watch rocket launch in or near motorhome?

We want to watch the launch on Wednesday. I just discovered today Playlanda Beach is closed, and Jetty Park is annual pass holders only. Is there a place where we can watch the launch and either stay in the motorhome, or at least very close to it?

RE: Florda State Parks mostly open for day use, camping 5/20

We will be meandering down the east coast starting Sunday ending up in Jetty Park area for the launch scheduled on Wednesday. Probably hit Charleston and whatever historic sites are on the route. Any problems using dump stations at Loves or Fly'n J truck stops? All I really need to travel is gas and a dump station every 2 or 3 days. I'd like to try to get into Gamble Rogers for a couple of nights and maybe drive to Jetty Park for the day to watch the launch. Doesn't look like Jetty Park campground is open. I imagine if there is any kind of outbreak in Orlando it would impact Jetty Park as that is full of Orlando residents. If anyone has a better place to watch the launch closer to Gamble I'd appreciate the feedback.

RE: Preparing for isolation to avoid contact with Corona virus

This explains our current situation. https://qz.com/1816060/a-chart-of-the-1918-spanish-flu-shows-why-social-distancing-works/

RE: Preparing for isolation to avoid contact with Corona virus

I've read take the cases that are reported and multiply it by 50. We're pretty much on shutdown in Ky and have been for over a week. Schools closed, Restaurants closed (take out or drive through only), courts closed, 1/2 state workers work from home, no person to person contact with state employees for drivers licenses and car tags, no gyms or hair salons, daycare's close tomorrow, with the exception of those caring for children of health care workers and first responders. Jails prisons and nursing homes are sealed. We had 9 new cases announced today. It should peak within a 2-3 weeks. Hopefully there will be hospital beds and ventilators for those who need them. I'm afraid Florida is going to get hammered. They're starting all this a lot later than we are. The whole purpose of all this is to slow the rate of infection so that the hospitals aren't overwhelmed.

RE: Preparing for isolation to avoid contact with Corona virus

I guess Florida was late to the isolation protocol. What do they care; they are all going someplace else in a few days. Of course, I'm sure some of the tourists brought a "present" with them, and at least some of the Floridians received it. Bad situation all around. I'm afraid FL will do things to discourage visitors once it hits hard.

RE: Preparing for isolation to avoid contact with Corona virus

I’m kind of having a change of heart. I’m afraid will get to Florida and everything will be closed. There could be quarantines in certain areas. Really, there are too many uncertainties to leave home.

RE: Preparing for isolation to avoid contact with Corona virus

I'm seeing MH travel as safe as staying home and going to work. If you don't go to restaurants and only go to grocery stores for food and truck stops for fuel. I understand sanitizing fuel pump handles and buttons, and going to grocery stores early or late. If you started to get sick it would be time to high tail it home. Agree?

RE: Another ‘dadgum’ post re: tire PSI…please bear with me…

Maybe. But I examined the Michelin chart closely and it gives no such information. Most likely the weight of my vehicle is Lighter than the standard use of this tire.

RE: Another ‘dadgum’ post re: tire PSI…please bear with me…

I would say all that is weight dependent. If I was running 30psi it might be different. 5 psi is within the customary 10 percent margin of safety. An overinflated tire only has contact in the middle of the tire. A properly inflated tire has contact the entire width of the tire. What we don’t know is whether the weight chart extends to pressures less than 65psi.

RE: Another ‘dadgum’ post re: tire PSI…please bear with me…

I never even considered that. I need to look at the chart carefully. I would get a smaller tire but I don’t want to deviate from stock. I’m going to fill it to 60 psi cold on my electric pump and Monitor my tire temps.

RE: Can I combine Seresto with any other flea product?

I decided to go on and treat him with K9 Advantix 2 in the hope of killing the eggs and larva. The Seresto only kills adult fleas. I should only have to apply it once. I'm going to put on a new Serasto at 5 months. We'll see how this works before I do anything else.

Can I combine Seresto with any other flea product?

I left a Seresto flea collar on my 55 pound Labradoodle for 8 months. At the end of the 8 months before I had a chance to replace the collar, the groomer reported he had fleas. I immediately replaced the collar with a new one. This was done more than a week ago. Unfortunately, Boo is still scratching. We have only seen one flea, but I'm guessing there must be others since he is scratching. I'm surmising the fleas are due to eggs that hatched that the collar hasn't yet killed. This is concerning, because the directions say any new infestation will be killed in 2 hours. Would I be able to add Capstar or other flea medication to assist the Seresto until his infestation is killed?

RE: Another ‘dadgum’ post re: tire PSI…please bear with me…

The tires are rated for 2,755 lbs per tire at 65 psi. Actual loaded weight is 2,320, or 870 pounds under max weight for both tires on the front. The rear is rated for 2755 X 2= 5,510 per dual or 11,020 for both rear sides. The actual loaded weight for the rear is 8,240. That is why it performs better with lower pressures. The chart didn't go below 65 psi, so I extrapolated the weight difference per tire in 10 psi increments in the other direction. The weight increase between 65 to 75 is 285 pounds. The difference between 75 and 85 is an increase of 275 pounds. The difference between 85 and 95 is 325 pounds. Based on the foregoing, I would believe the reduction in weight carrying per tire would be less than 300 pounds per tire for a 10 psi decrease in pressure, or 55 psi. Even that would give me a 200 pound margin of safety on the front, and 1,580 in the rear. So I settled on what I believe to be 60 psi, that will leave an even greater margin of safety.

RE: Another ‘dadgum’ post re: tire PSI…please bear with me…

I noticed on my last trip the MH handeled very well when the TPMS showed the hot pressure at 66-69 across the range of 6 tires. My pump was showing the pressure at 60psi when cold inflated, but the TPMS showed 55. Winnebago recomends 65, but the loading charts for the tires show a huge margin of safety at actual weights at the scale. I thnk the issue with mine is that it is a shorty at 27', and I surmise the pressure of 65 is for the entire Sightseer line. My gage, the tire pump and my TPMS all give different readings. Actually the improvement in handling at these pressures was nothing short of remarkble. I felt noticably less fatigued. I don't remember the tire temperature, but the alarm didn't go off. I'll check that next trip.
