RE: Flip Phone

Page Plus Cellular is what we use with our old Verizon flip phone. We use it as an emergency phone and buy minutes ahead of time for less than 40 bucks per year...

RE: Tesla Cybertruck

I didn't read the whole thread - just scanned, but didn't see it mentioned where the Tesla dragged an F150. Here's the video. OK... Go ahead and watch the next video that comes up... :)

RE: Anybody else have trouble packing for camping

It's not that simple. I don't hate it, but I don't love it either. Food is my biggest problem - sometimes forgetting something important. We hardly ever camp anywhere near a store and I don't want to spend my camping time shopping anyway. Way back when the kids were with us -- I will never forget the time I forgot the marshmallows for the fire... I do plan meals and make lists, but even with that, last time I forgot butter. I had all the makings for grilled cheese, but no butter. Surprisingly mayo worked - no change in taste. :C

RE: Camping near Biltmore Estate

We stayed at Campfire Lodgings and the view from our campsite was spectacular: https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/tlN8xOt84-A0S9cxUoEfqjQx4xyy5B_cLdT3MxT9RMJCa9F1JWCCLujepeS1YMKWvcAVJwkPHB9cIfgcI_GbvDwxXiu_Wze4IaggY6-8wQTJIrUjNlZZhYLCZJWQa57XkGO0niqAOg=w1920-h789-no width=800

RE: Space Heater

Wow, 5 pages in and only one person has pointed out that not using the furnace just may endanger your water tanks and lines. Sure on some RVs it wont matter, but on many others it certainly does. Pennywise and pound foolish? For starters it generally takes 24 hours of sub freezing temps to cause issues to a heated RV. Temps below freezing for a few hours overnight will not create problems for most RV's with an enclosed underbelly. Most RV'ers are not in extreme cold, yes it may dip below freezing overnight but the temps warm to above freezing during the day. THose moderately cold conditions are ideal for space heaters. The idea that your tanks will freeze if you use space heaters is overblown. Yes it may happen in extreme conditions But if the cabin is warm/heated heat will naturally radiate and protect the plumbing. Leaving a cabinet door open or using a light bulb in the basement also helps. Your plumbing does not automatically freeze in cold weather if space heaters are used. Temps must be well below freezing or remain below freezing for 24 hours or longer before there is a high risk of freezing pipes.Lantley is right. We've camped in our trailer when it's gotten down to 24* when I woke up and checked. During the day it got up into the 50s. We use electric heat - sometimes a space heater, sometimes the heater in the air conditioner. Nothing happens to the plumbing and we don't even have an enclosed underbelly. I will say that we never have water hooked up - always use the tank and pump. What kind of space heater do we use? A Vornado. It circulates the air and keeps the temperatures even all throughout the camper.

RE: Dirt

I may have missed it... But - anyone take their shoes off going into their house and their RV? We always have and that's why our floors are clean. A small hassle, but we feel good about it.

RE: Forum Posting Help and Support

Someone new comes with a problem they want to get help and support with. They want to post their problem to the forum. In nice big letters right at the top they see the words Forum Posting and the other magic words Help and Support It's obvious to me.

RE: Be careful out there. There are some bad people

Anyone see this image of when the truck and RV are taken across the border? https://cbsnews2.cbsistatic.com/hub/i/r/2019/11/04/ea810992-1996-42f2-8d83-0cf8def88d42/thumbnail/1240x894g2/f49267ea2aab26465e1878f994066a1a/texas-persons-of-interest.jpg width=300

RE: Storage in Barn for winter.

A couple of years ago we built a new garage for our RV. To protect the concrete and tires we bought some vinyl runner and cut it into rectangles to go under the tires. It works for us. We also have a Progressive Dynamics converter and leave it plugged in 24/7.

RE: Netflix forces newer TVs

Geez... Give us a hint at what you're talking about. What was the message? And also - you don't use Netflix in the bedroom?

RE: Campsite Sanitation - Beware

Turn on spigot for few seconds, connect hose run for a few seconds, connect to RV. yup At a state campground in MA about 5 yrs back I was starting to finish up at a 2 way island dump station, guy pulls up on the opposite side in a New Class C, I glanced over noticed he was kind of nervous, well he opens his black tank valve and lets it rip! NO SEWER HOSE! I just got out of dodge fast! while leaving I did notice he was trying to wash it down with the non potable water spigot. Mike We just saw that at Liberty Harbor. It was a class C from overseas - I could tell because it was shaped weird and had a funky license plate. They just pulled up close to the drain and opened the valve. No rinsing either. I wondered if that's the way they do it where they come from... Luckily there was a good rain before we had to dump.

RE: What good are low point drains?

The answer would be, IF you can get to the area above the floor where the drains come down, do a little plumbing work and put valves above the floor and run pex down for the drains. In my RV, the valves are inside the house (2 under the bed, two under the bathroom sink), and they have drain extensions that go through the floor to exit the RV.Same with our 1990 trailer. - the valves are inside and only lengths of open pipe go to the outside. And the low point drains are how I winterize. Let the water out - also clears out the water heater and then blow the lines out with air.

RE: What Did You Do To Your Class B Today ?

Had to replace the flame indicator on the fridge. Last trip it didn't work when starting it on propane for our drive home. Thought there was something wrong with the ignitor or something. Had to wait to get home to take the whole back of the fridge apart to see that the flame actually did light. To replace that thing it looks like you're supposed to take the fridge out to get to the wiring connections on top of it. Cut the wires and soldered them instead. Works great! Oh - and since we were going to cut the wires - might as well get the cheaper Norcold flame indicator (with different connectors) instead of the twice as much Dometic.

RE: Getting to Liberty Harbor

Thanks very much for the replies! Looks like we'll go in on I-78 - definitely want to skip the gnarly stuff. :)

Getting to Liberty Harbor

Looking at the directions on their website they say it is best when coming from the west to: "Take I-78 East towards Newark, NJ. Take I-78 Express lane East towards I-95/New Jersey Turnpike. I-78 Express Lane East becomes I-78. Take exit towards Jersey City/Columbus Drive. Take slight right onto Christopher Columbus Drive. Take slight right onto Marin Blvd. Destination is on the right. " Looking at Google maps - we'll be coming in on 280 - it looks like we can just keep going straight and it turns into 7, then 139, then 12th St. where we can turn right on Marin Blvd. Also shows that route doesn't have tolls. What do you think? Should we just do that or go south on I-95 from 280 to get to I-78 East and follow their directions? We want to go the least stressful way...

RE: Terrible Trucks

Our kid has a good job and bought a Benz. When she told us the price of it I said - Geez, On RV Net most folks have a pick up truck that cost more than that. :)

RE: New York City

From what I’ve read, Liberty Harbor will not be available for our trip... Repurposed land...Whaaat? We've got reservations for mid October. They took our money - hopefully what you heard was wrong. We did stay at Croton Point before and it was really cool - taking the train along the Hudson into Grand Central. We would stay there again, but thought it would be fun to stay in a parking lot and take a ferry across to Manhattan. :)

RE: What Did You Do To Your Class B Today ?

We replaced the black tank valve because it was leaking. Oh man - what a job! :E I had replaced the gray tank valve on our trailer a couple years ago - that was a total piece of cake compared to this...

RE: What Did You Do To Your Class B Today ?

Washed and waxed it. Must say it still looks like new. :) We're in the middle of our fall trip season - got it a little messy when it rained on our way to MD. Gotta start the next trip with a clean buggy!
