RE: Where have all the members gone on this forum?

Summer starts tomorrow get ready. The lack of new posts could be because newbies have read every post on every facet of RVing and have no new questions. We trained them well.

RE: Portable air conditioner

We have the rig in sig. Two AC's the living room one crapped out after warranty expired. Unable to find replacement do to supply issues. We had spent the previous summer in high desert location, daliy temps in the mid ninties but low humidity. Purchased a room AC for 20 x20 room this is one where you have an exhaust hose. We run it on low fan and set point of 75 degrees. It works better than the roof top unit that failed and 1/3 the price.

RE: Painting travel trailer white to reduce heat in summer?

Our first rv was white. After a month of traveling mid April to mid May we settled in to our first volunteer camp hosting position. It was a well shaded site 50amp FHU. It was a a hot humid summer along the river but our 5er stayed cool. Cool enough that the exterior was covered with condensation. Like to say that was always true but 104 temp in Arizona and little humidity mid 80s were the best we could do. Not the temp as much as not a bit of shade.

RE: Self adhesive shower grab bar needed

A grab bar or a towel bar? I would not trust adhesive grab bar with my life.

RE: How long has your AC run ?

Our last 5er was a '04' we brought it in '10'. We fulltimed in it for 7 1/2 years. It was the original AC as the owner had been meticulous in his record keeping.

RE: Country Water Fill - Class C Jayco

I found it easier to buy a 12 Vt transfer pump.

RE: Residential vs Gas/Electric Fridge?

We just started our 13 year as fulltimers. First 7 years with a gas/electric fridge. We were not boondockers so need for other than the normal assortment of dog bones and supplemental 25ft 30amp electric cord for that rare power pole oddly placed. We did go to Alaska in '15' so I picked up a couple 3000 watt generators. Only used one at a time as charging the battery, morning toast and coffee, and time in the evening movie and more battery charging. We returned to Alaska in '18' with our present rig with a residential fridge. We boondocked 12 weeks while we were there and ran the generator daily. Besides the fridge we also have a 5.5 cu ft freezer which is not on a inverter so requires a reliable source of power. Down here in the lower 48 there are a few locations that require us to use the generator. We only have 2 6 volt batteries so daily recharging is a necessity.

RE: leaving the stick and brick for the summer

I left mine at 80 but I was as interested in humidity as well as temp Chicago suburbs.

RE: hundreds of CD's many in original packaging, mostly country

All our vinyl dating back to the 60's went to local hospital resale store. Still have 300+ CDs sana their cases in fllexible vinyl books. Everything is also logged on the computer but its old and could fail. Also have several USBs but have had those get damaged of just fail.

RE: Sioux Falls area

We havent stayed at Palisades SP we did an afternoon there 2 years ago while waiting for early voting to open. It is a nice park. Plenty of sites for a rig your size. South Dakota SPs have day use fee as well as camping fees. I can't say all but all SD parks we've stayed in have been top notch.

RE: Memphis Crossing

We've been using the 55 bridge for the last 5 years both spring and fall. We winter in Louisiana after mother daughter time in Chicago burbs and the reverse in the spring. We then do a volunteer job somewhere in cooler climes up North.

RE: phone-based GPS

I trust google on my phone more than the Ford nav. We did have a Garmin 10-12 years ago but found paper maps were more reliable. Did use if in cities they don't move attractions like museums very often. I see your up East those are not roads they're Indian trails and wildlife paths.

RE: cleaning duct work

Spray some Lysol into it kills mold.

RE: Tow Car auto insurance

Where do you receive your mail? Weve been fulltime 12 years soon to start 13th, same insurance carrier the whole time. Weve changed address three times in those 12 years. Two of those were and are mail forwarding addresses. What insurance companies want is where you garage your vehicle so they can rate you according to the zip code. No matter how good your driving record is your base rate is determined by your zip code. If the insurance company says it has to do with the Patriot Act as banks and financial institutions or brokerage houses do. We've shown enough mail from the federal government to prove that our address is recognized as our legal address. The only thing that I can think of is you have a mailing address in a state that your insurance company is not registered to sell insurance.

RE: Fuel costs for upcoming trip...

We canceled our volunteer position this summer $5.00 diesel 0n a 3000 mile round trip adds $650 to the fuel bill. I regret canceling but retired and fixed income this temporary inflation is doing a number on the budget. $300 increase on the RV insurance and haven't got the increase on the vehicles yet.
