RE: Leveling Jacks pro & con

My 27' Winnibago Aspect didn't have levelers. I used ramps which worked OK. My new Entegra Esteem is at 32.5' It came with levelers and I love them. Drive in, push a button, presto, level. I think this will likely be my last RV but I'd pay extra for them. I'm getting too old to fiddle with ramps or blocks.

Snow Birding Around Clearwater FL After New Years

I am thinking of heading to Clearwater after New Years to spend 2-3 months. Will I have a problem finding somewhere decent to tie down without reservations? I have a health issue that precludes me from making permanent plans right now. Thanks!

RE: Sink covers on or off

I like the look of the long counter with them in. Mine is Corian. I like having more counter space and when I can"t put them on I know it is time to do the dishes.

RE: Any widow(er)s around here?

My wife of 44 years passed last November after almost 3 years of cancer induced quadriplegia. She knew she was dying and we had several conversations about what I thought my life would be after she was gone. I told her I was going to full time after selling the house. She enjoyed RVing until she couldn't anymore but was not crazy about full timing. She agreed that would be good for me. She also gave me her blessing to find someone else after waiting a proper period. I am now mostly timing after selling the house and living in a small apartment. The first few times it seemed like a piece was missing but the more I got out and did things during my trips, the better it felt. I adopted a small dog who is the perfect travel companion. I haven't looked for "someone else" yet but I will be looking soon. I am just starting out on this new life journey and while I am well aware of how short life is, I plan to take my time and make sure I am making decisions that are in concert with what I see as my future. I wish you happiness and fulfillment in your journey.

RE: Decisions

When I started looking I wanted to stay under 30 feet. I wound up buying an Entegra Esteem 29V. Tape measure and manufacturer says it is 32.5' bumper to bumper. Dealer told me it was 30' and the name implies it is 29'. Whatever size I notice no complications over the 27' Aspect we had before. The extra floor space is very nice.

RE: How long to return to camping after open heart surgery

I had my first heart attack about 10 years ago. I had a lot of heart damage as I actually ruptured my heart. My cardiologist told me not very many folks recover from that. I also had a double bypass done. You are lucky to have your heart repaired before you have damage like me. That said, I took my wife, daughter and grand daughter camping about 2 months after my big event. I had (at the time) a 27' bumper pull trailer and towed by an F250 V10. I had lots of help setting up and leveling but driving there was fine. Your situation may be different given what you camp in. It was difficult but it was important to me in my recovery process to continue doing things I enjoyed. Some things are off limits but camping wasn't one of them. Talk to your cardiologist and get their opinion. Maybe stay closer to medical help the first few times. Solicit help from your camping partner(s). Now almost 10 years later I am still camping but in a new Class C. Sadly my wife passed 7 months ago so now it is just me and the dog. I had a second heart attack a year ago but I have recovered completely from that one. I am "Mostly Timing". That means I have an apartment but most of the time I am off somewhere in my RV. I have chosen to celebrate what I can still do, not to mourn what I can't. I wish the best for you and your recovery.

RE: De-laminating

I would never consider an RV with delamination no matter what the price is.

RE: If you had a do-over, which would you get?

I've owned 3 V10s. A 1999, 2008, and now a 2019. It is an incredible engine for the motorhome application. I know nothing about Mercedes except for their expensive reputation. Why change that which works?

RE: co pilot

I lost mine 6 months ago. Prayers for you my friend.
ol' yeller 05/13/19 09:13am RVing with Disabilities and General Health Issues

I bought mine new from RV country in Mount Vernon. I got just over 31% off MSRP.
ol' yeller 05/03/19 09:40am Class C Motorhomes

A couple of things, please turn off your caps lock when posting. It makes your post harder to read and it is considered shouting on the Internet. Second are you buying new or used? The ways to determine price are very different. If used, are you buying from a dealer or an individual? Also are you considering a specific RV or are you looking for this model? What is the model #?I have a new Entegra Esteem 29V which I believe is very similar.

RE: More beginner RVing questions

When I don't have a full black tank to dump and it's going to be awhile before I go out again, I just add water to the black tank via the toilet foot pedal until it is 2/3rds full or more and then dump. My RV has a black tank rinser which makes cleaning the tank much easier.

RE: Best way to get paid for selling RV?

I agree that wire transfers are the safest but be aware not all financial institutions will do them. When I sold my RV the buyer's Credit Union would not do a wire transfer for the $40,000.

I just lost my wife of 44 years 2 months ago. My heart goes out to the family.

RE: Who has a Defibrillator?

God Bless you both. I don't know how the rest of my life will turn out. Last night, my wife took a turn for the worse. Her Hospice nurse was with her for several hours. You never know what hand you are going to be dealt as life unfolds but as you get to the bottom of the deck the good cards become more scarce. I wish you all wellness.

RE: Who has a Defibrillator?

Thank you for the info everyone. FYI I am 65 and have had 2 heart attacks, one 8 years ago where I ruptured my heart and again 2 months ago during a traumatic event. I had a visit with my very trusted cardiologist yesterday and we decided not to implant a defibrillator device at this time. He will be monitoring my heart monthly going forward and the decision could change if events warrant. My wife is currently in home hospice and I am trying to figure out what to do for the remainder of my life after she passes. I have always wanted to full time where she has not. My heart condition has me reconsidering if I could full time. As of now, my cardiologist isn't telling me I can't as long as I stay healthy. I'm glad that I don't have to get a defibrillator at this time as the recovery would affect my ability to care for my wife. I do see how it could save my life at some point. There were other considerations from my cardiologist that led to the decision not to implant at this time. Take care of your heart people. It can really screw up your plans for your future.

RE: Who has a Defibrillator?

Sorry I didn't make it clearer. I'm asking about folks with an implanted defibrillator, not an AED. Sorry for the confusion.

Who has a Defibrillator?

My cardiologist is thinking I may need one. How has it affected your life and travel? I will probably be traveling alone. Would that make a difference?

RE: Where do you place your inside level?

I used 2 levels on our RV, The bathroom door and the upper cupboard door. As long as they stayed open in any position, the coach was level enough. I discovered this after spending an embarrassing amount of money on all sorts of levels, electronic, cell phone or just bubble types.
