RE: Help finding Roadside assistance & benefit plan for me

We switched to FMCA last year. I have a medical condition too. You get their medical assist free with membership and their roadside assistance is very reasonable. Have not used any of it luckily.

RE: Lighting to cook by

Don't grill much in the dark, but these work pretty good.Got a little hook you can hang on the front of your shirt and keep your hands free. They are really expensive though ;) http://widgets.harborfreight.com/wswidgets/common/displayCoupon.do?week=2419&campaign=b&page=freecoupon.html&cust=99999999999&keycode=9999&single=true&utm_source=1021&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=2419b1-FathersDay_Rem&cid=mEmail-s1021-c2419b1-FathersDay_Rem&lid=29,207,745

RE: Roadside Assistance Question

I got tired of Good Sam offering a low upfront price then hit you with a almost double renewal price. BTW to get the low upfront price you will likely have to agree to auto renewal at year end. So you have to remember to cancel or they will auto renew you at their full retail price. Got tired of the above and went with FMCA. The price is similar after you figure the membership fee. We went with it because you get the medical travel assist program for free with membership. GS and others charge extra for that. Haven't used FMCA. Used GS once for dead battery and it was good service.

RE: Fence Post Mod - For water hose storage etc?

Don't forget fishing poles ( with reels removed ). That is what we use ours for but it is 4" round not a square fence post.

RE: Rv Ceiling vinyl /fabric bubble

We picked this up from Lowes. glue If I remember correctly we used Q tips to apply the glue.

RE: Rv Ceiling vinyl /fabric bubble

Not the ceiling, but we had some small bubbles on the walls of our last TT. The vinyl covering over the luan type wall had bubbled up. We cut the bubble with a sharp utility knife so it would lay flat, then glued it back down. There was a pattern so it became " invisible ". This may or may not help you. You may be dealing with a white ceiling which would make the repair more difficult. Good luck

RE: Mosquitos

Mix a large bottle of blue mouthwash,epsom salt, and stale beer in a pump up sprayer and spray liberally area the campsite. Works for flys also I'm just trying to figure out how someone came up with this formula :) Not saying it will not work.

RE: Amazon Prime and Alexa

I think folks are answering 2 different questions. Prime is a good thing for many people. I have been a member before and see it could be good for many people, although many times better prices and free shipping can be found elsewhere. Now, Alexa I have no use for, at least for me. You can have one and not the other unless things have changed recently.

RE: Amazon Prime and Alexa

Well, you asked for a solution......Don't buy one in the first place.

RE: battery disconnect switch

Could be a defective switch. I put a new one in our last TT and it quit working after only a couple of uses. Bought a different type / brand and all was good.

RE: trailer shade

When you say front of the TT do you mean where the doors and awnings are? If so the following may help. We bought some sunshade material from Lowes. My wife cut and hemmed the material to fit the TT awning. Like someone said she sewed gromments into the bottom of the screen. She sewed some attachment clips in the top that slide right into the awning groove. Very inexpensive compared to pre made and you can customize the size. We have had a number of people stop by and want to know where we bought the screen. https://www.campingworld.com/awning-hooks---8-pack-69039.html?cgid=rv-awnings#sz=21&start=36&cgid=rv-awnings

RE: GD Imagine 2500RL New and improved TV mount

We eliminated a number of trailers because of the 'neck wrecker' television-seating position. The GD 2500RL is one of the many we eliminated. We eliminated a bunch because of seating / view too. We liked everything else about this one and knew it could be fixed. Cost < 75 dollars and problem solved. Works / more flexible than most factory setups.

RE: GD Imagine 2500RL New and improved TV mount

Kathy, We posted a rather long review of our first 90 days on this site 03/18/2019. I will attempt to link it below. Bottom line, after some initial issues that were resolved we are very happy. We really love this TT layout, quality, towing, et. Unfortunately, since we returned from the Keys, I have been having Chemo one week every month so we have not been on another trip. We are hoping to get to the NC Mountains in July or August. The TV mount was one thing we wanted to change. Otherwise the 2500RL is very functional. https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/29859869.cfm

GD Imagine 2500RL New and improved TV mount

We recently inquired about anyone who had changed out their stock TV mount ( 10" extension ) for a longer one that actually works as it should. We got no direct response other than buy one and stick it up so we decided to go for it. First one we ordered was really heavy duty but dual arm and would not work. The one we installed is a single arm 25" extension and works great. You can now actually watch TV from both recliners without a problem. You can move it closer to you, farther away if you want, basically any position, and also adjust the vertical angle about 15%. It will be secured by a strap of fabric my wife uses to make grocery bags and the strap will be held with velcro. We are installing short pieces of pool noodle on each side in the back to keep it from wiggling around when tied down. Don't know if I can attach pics or not, but will try. Very pleased with the outcome. Obviously the GD folks never tried to actually watch the TV. https://i.imgur.com/TZAlwWql.jpg "border=0" https://i.imgur.com/m3zZPvb.pngClick For Full-Size Image. https://i.imgur.com/Xrbd6H9l.jpg "border=0" https://i.imgur.com/m3zZPvb.pngClick For Full-Size Image. https://i.imgur.com/6Og45xwl.jpg "border=0" https://i.imgur.com/m3zZPvb.pngClick For Full-Size Image. https://i.imgur.com/RRUGaB4l.jpg "border=0" https://i.imgur.com/m3zZPvb.pngClick For Full-Size Image. https://i.imgur.com/OLPnd6Gl.jpg "border=0" https://i.imgur.com/m3zZPvb.pngClick For Full-Size Image. https://i.imgur.com/ln54l3jl.jpg "border=0" https://i.imgur.com/m3zZPvb.pngClick For Full-Size Image.

RE: Mosquitos

It appears Watkins is high percentage DEET, which works well for us too. Just try to use as little as possible. We buy the Walmart brand called Repel which is cheaper and DEET is DEET no matter the name on the container. We use Thermocell which works great if it is calm. We have the backpacker version which has a small butane canister and will sit on the ground without falling over. Citronella candles seem to work too, although not too well. No seeums in the Keys are a bigger problem than mosquitos for us. A combination of the above usually works or it is time to go inside :)
