RE: Traffic on I24 near I75 Blocked Friday night- Monday Am

Anyone planning on traveling east on I24 to I75 then on toward Florida, or traveling north On I75 and then west on I24 toward Nashville, At mile 183, on I24 in Chattanooga,Tn traffic will be completely stopped from 8:00PM Friday night the 16th until the following Monday at 8:00AM both east and west for construction.It is already the rule to encounter 5 to 15miel backups due to construction. I expect traffic going east on I24 to be backed up to at least mile marker 152 but most certainly mile marker exit 161. There are alternative routes into Chattanooga but once surface city streets an access roads adjacent to I24 will be back way up Going north on I75 traffic may be backed up to Dalton,Ga. Only real alternatives is I59, or I65 south to Birmingham I65 and east on I20 I think. They are paving I75 south at the moment south of Atlanta, and going south is down to one lane. The weekend, I don't know. - I-65 south to I-85 east - exit 9 (US 271. TO US 231). then right at the top of the ramp - follow the 4-lane 231 east thru Troy, Ozark and Dothan to I-10 - I-10 east to I-75

RE: Dangerous Pranks

There are dangerous pranks I read about today on RV quilters facebook page. Both happen at night. "Kids" go around closing the bar that goes in front of doors. Doing that makes it nearly impossible to open the door. Kids are also closing steps. Several people had heard about both. It happened to some of them, and one woman stepped out of her camper in the morning and fell because her steps were in. Fortunately she was not injured. I wanted to make people aware of this. what bar? don't think i've ever seen that. our steps are electric and we keep the water bay locked.

RE: 5050 miles in 9 Travel Days

back in our pre-RV days we once lingered too long on a vacation in the PNW. in order to get back to our jobs in time near Chicago we had to drive all night. we started out from Sacramento CA at 0600 their time and drobe straight thru to Des Moines IA...36-driving hours later. up early the next morning for another 5-hr drive home and work the next day, all in our 1975 Mustang. we swapped drivers every two hours until we hit SLC at midnight. we then did 4-hr shifts so we could kinda sorta get some sleep.

RE: Multimeter Question

That's too bad !! found this on amazon but IMO it's not as nice as the one we have. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B088D2JVN4/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_VP1GG73XS5XZ3E4KGHGD?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

RE: Multimeter Question

I saw this awhile ago, but apparently they are not still available. Will keep checking. Do you have one? If so, where did you get it? yes, we have one and love it! got it online several years ago. tried to find a link online for you but struck out.

RE: Fridge spring tension rods

...Wouldn't want anything to fall into the toilet when I open the cabinet! i learned that lesson the hard way so we now keep the lid closed unless it's being used.

RE: Fridge spring tension rods

have you had the problem? which type of fridge do you have...RV or residential? when we had the RV type of fridge we never had a need to use them. Now that we have a residential fridge we use these: https://i.imgur.com/xhlkI1Ml.jpg

RE: Attaching items to interior walls without drilling

I used Command Strips for 3 pictures and so far they work, there is a general purpose Command Hook also. When it comes time to remove ? will see. Go to the web site Command JimR been using 3M Command Strips ih the MH and at home since they were first introduced. They are as advertised. They used to make a few of the Command products designed for outdoor use. They work just as well indoors but hold a bit better for larger objects.

RE: Stupid question about tires

There are nitrogen pumps but not really affordable for home use. It's a gimmick. Just use that 78% nitrogen that comes out of your air compressor and you will be fine. +1. this question or one like it surfaces from time to time. bob is spot on. if the seller is using nitrogen as a selling point or to charge extra then i'd walk away.

RE: Lost Power Notifications

I am in an RV using a small travel router. so are we. our verizon mifi router works on both AC and 12v. if shore power drops the router reverts to 12v

RE: Lost Power Notifications

The problem is when the power goes out, so does the wifi.. unless the router is dual powered..like ours.

RE: Lost Power Notifications

or maybe a plug-in, wifi enabled power failure detector like this. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B089QQNKJL/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_PD91M17090D4KT3476XH?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

RE: Black tank

You have a vent ... all do .. it goes up from the top of the tank inside a interior wall through the roof .. you should see it as a pipe with one of several types of covers. Burping is a full sign or a blocked vent. I wouldn’t trust gauges / indicators as they rarely work properly. Does it blurs all the time ? Even when you just emptied it. +1

RE: Black tank

I have a 2018 Bounder does the black tank have a vent from the tank ? i'm guessing you're asking because your toilet is backing up or showing full after just a short time. if the tank does not have a vent you won't be able to put much into it. air is displaced as water and solids enters the tank. if that air has no where to go either the tank will pop a leak and/or water and solids will not flow into the tank. if the bottom of the vent tube drops below the level of the water air cannot escape and the tank will pop a leak or backup. if you have the dreaded black pyramid that will reduce the volume of liquid and solids going into the tank.

RE: Chromebooks?

They do NOT have a hard drive.Mine has a usb port for a thumb drive. But yeah, sans internet connection they're pretty much a brick. But I knew that. Cloud data doesn't bother me. the USB port should also be able to power a portable hard drive. 500gb up to 2tb drives are very affordable. I use the cloud for one layer of my backup routines but really prefer to have my data local. we use traditional desktops at home and a laptop on the road.

RE: Park suggestions/opinions in or near San Jose, CA.

If the Betabel distance is a option then you could consider the Santa Cruz area. Since you're apparently a Elks member then Santa Clara, Sunnyvale and San Jose are possibilites. None have site sewers AFAIK, restroom facilities are available at San Jose. They might consider an extended stay given the circumstances. not an elks member but would join if need be but if no sewer then it's a no-go. santa cruz seems a bit far but i will keep it in mind.

RE: Park suggestions/opinions in or near San Jose, CA.

X2 Coyote Valley, good access to SJ. The SJ trailer parks area is questionable, but I can get a update from my SJ Fireman son if you want as I haven't been there in a while. Rush hour traffic is rather heavy but hopefully you can avoid it. Hopefully your expenses are covered and your vaccinated. Sorry for your loss. they are covered and we will be by the tine we leave. thanks. and we're including some of the trailer parks as a Plan 1a. you might ask your buddy which TPs are in OK areas. As a San Jose resident I would say that NONE of the trailer parks IN San Jose are very desirable - they are all your typical "trailer park" rather than RV parks. You're better off going down to Morgan Hill - Coyote Valley RV is nice, but their price reflects that, and they are pretty strict about adhering to their "10-year" rule. Maple Leaf RV Park is more reasonable, if they have any openings - they've concentrated on long-term residents lately and I don't know how many transient sites they keep available. Farther south would be Betabel RV Park - they have a pretty good sized transient section. Farther out would be Casa de Fruta, but that's an hour away from San Jose. if we can't find space for 3-mos at an RV park we'll consider a trailer park. just don't want to park next to a meth lab.
