RE: Aftermarket heated steering wheel?

How about a 12v electric car heater? About 150w of heat. Mount on steering column and blow heat up to the steering wheel. Similar to this: https://www.amazon.com/Portable-Cigarette-Adjustable-Demister-Defroster/dp/B09LHXRVPP/ref=sr_1_4_sspa?keywords=12+volt+car+heater&qid=1641178876&sr=8-4-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEyOE9CTjBBTUpWUkUzJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNTA1Mjc3Mks0TEtFMURLSUwxMyZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwMTkyMTI4M1ZRWk5XTFcyUFJLUCZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2F0ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU=

RE: Original RV price

If you look for NADA pricing for you RV, when you get to the pricing page it usually shows the original factory price. Then follows with their pricing in today's market. It won't be exact because it just shows an average of units produced for your model year.

RE: A/C locking up in 1984 class c

How are you powering the A/C? Generator? House Power? If you're using an extension cord for power you might be using one that's a little to small. Extra heat will build up and shut off the compressor, then trip fuses. Heavy duty cords are best. And good luck with this old gal.

RE: AC doesn't keep up with heat

B Y U, Have you thought about just getting a 12,000 btu portable A/C unit. They may not be as readily available in your area, but I picked one up on Craigslist for $150 about five years ago. Works great and gives the added boost of cool air when needed. I've loaned my to several people when their A/C quit and they were all grateful to have the little unit.

RE: Elect. start generator.

Get the Champion with the remote start feature. Run a dedicated quality extension cord near the electrical outlet that you currently use to plug in your O2 machine. When an outage hits, you just have to hit the remote start button, then unplug the O2 from the wall, and plug into your extension cord. You're good until the power returns. (Or, move to a state that has a better power grid).

RE: What's up with Rocky Mt. National Park entry?

Yep, they figured out a new way to make money from the NP’s we have already paid to use! And it’s not just RMNP either! To be clear, the parks are not making any money off this. The fee is $2 and it goes to the contractor that operates the reservation system. The park could pay the fee instead, but that would mean even less money for the parks themselves as the contractor still expects to be paid. Same deal for the folks that are upset about this being charged to annual and geezer pass holders. This is a fixed cost to the park per visitor, would you prefer they take it out of their operating and maintenance budget? According to the RMNP website the fee is $25.00. Maybe $2.00 goes to the contractor. 2015-2019 they averaged about 4.4 million visitors. 2020 was limited to 3.3 million guests. About 70% of the visits will be during the months the fee is collected. (Allow about four guests per vehicle and the fee will equal about $70 million this year).

What's up with Rocky Mt. National Park entry?

I have a trip to Western Colorado planned for the last week of June. I will be staying at Westcliffe for a few days with friends, then had planned to go to Dillon for a night, then to Estes Park by way of the Rocky Mt. National Park, with a night in Loveland. I just happened to check the website for the RMNP and noticed this new requirement for entry: Reservations required to enter Rocky Mountain National Park From May 28 through October 11, 2021, visitors to Rocky Mountain National Park will need a timed entry permit and an entrance pass to recreate in the park. Click "more" for details. This "Timed Entry Permit" costs $25. My Senior Pass gets me into the park, but I have to pay and have a reservation to get in. I guess I'm living in a bubble. My last trip to RMNP was 2004, just drove on Hwy 34 straight through the park. I don't usually travel much during the summer months, mostly local trips, so maybe I'll just wait and go out of season. Less traffic suits me better.

RE: Harbor Freight - what happened to the 20% off coupons

Funny thing...my morning email had a Harbor Freight ad; guess what it said? 10% off everything, no exceptions, and if you're an Inside Track Member ($30 yearly fee) you get 20% off, no exceptions. Good today thru Monday. I guess they read my post from last night and decided to send me a coupon!

RE: Harbor Freight - what happened to the 20% off coupons

I remember when J.C. Penney's always had coupons and special sales, BOGO, etc. Then a new CEO decided to do away with coupons, and you can see how that helped them. Near bankruptcy. I really think Harbor-Freight is going in the same direction. They are rebranding a lot of tools, and painted them in exciting colors, but they're the same tools; just cost more and you think you're getting a premium tool. I'll miss them!

RE: CC&R dated 1973 says no RVs, trailers, boats can be stored

Once this neighbor finds out what a great neighbor you will be, she'll let it go. I would take photos of all the other neighborhood offenders. Park your motorhome next to your house. If she complains show her the photos and let her know you will gladly place the motorhome in storage when the other folks do likewise. Covenants only mean something if there is an enforceable body to take action. Take her some sticky buns when you move in and play nice. And enjoy your new home.

RE: Harbor Freight Tailgator generator review

OK, here’s my Harbor Freight 800/900W generator story. I had purchased one for $88 in about 2010 (It was the red version). I used it a few times on small projects. Always started. Mixed gas wasn’t a problem because I always had a few gallons around for my weed eater and leaf blower. About seven years ago we had a huge wind storm and power lines were down everywhere. (It’s Oklahoma, June, and a lot of tornadic action that evening). For my personal use I had a 6000W Generac that I fired up, ran extension cords and I was fine. After getting stuff up and running I hurried to my 90 year old Mom’s house about 1.5 miles away, her electricity was out also. (This was after 9:00 at night). Her house was dark so I told her she needed to come home with me…..she wouldn’t budge. Said, “I’m staying in my own house! I got plenty of flashlights so I’m not going anywhere”. Yes, she had several flashlights….all batteries were dead! I had a few out in my truck so I gave them to her. So, I headed home, got the Harbor Freight generator, gas, and went back to her house. I thought it would be good enough to handle some lights, her lift chair and TV. Put the generator on her patio, fired it up and began running a few extension cords. She was good, so I left. Early the next morning I headed back to her house to gas up the little generator. It was still running. I turned it off, gassed up and restarted. Now here is the “rest of the story”…. I go in the house and Mom says, “Can that thing make a cup of coffee?” I didn’t know so I checked her coffee maker and on the bottom it said 1100 watts. I’m thinking probably not. But she really wanted her coffee. So I unhooked everything else, and plugged in the coffee maker. The little generator was just humming on the patio, but as soon as it hit the on button to start the coffee maker, you could hear the generator really start to strain, but it kept running and after about five minutes her coffee was ready. I turned off the coffee maker and plugged in the other items and added a cord for the refrigerator and the little generator worked fine for five days. Every morning we did the coffee routine and mom was happy! When power came back on Mom’s first words were, “I want my own generator…. Big enough to make my coffee”. So now she has a 3200/4000 watt generator (also Harbor Freight) in her garage….never been used! I run it under load every three months. So, that small generator gave me my $88 of value. I gave it to my grandson a few years ago.

RE: Shower size

RV Showers come in two sizes Too small and WAY TOO SMALL There are even smaller showers too. I think they are "micro showers". And remember; you can't run the Micro-shower and the A/C at the same time......
