RE: Black Tank Help Needed

I once had a black tank problem of my own making. It seams I didn't close the BT valve completely and the liquid ran out leaving mostly solids. Amazon to the rescue with the above mentioned back flush valve. Turned out I could have gotten by without it as I had firmly closed the BT valve and enough water filled the tank while waiting on Amazon delivery. I did attach the valve and my BT flush hose opened the BT valve and had a good flow. .

RE: No place to camp in Florida

Just in case you think Florida plates insure a fulltime Florida resident they don't. There are a great number of fulltime retired that use Florida mailing addresses for residency purposes. When we were camp hosting in a Florida state park there was a older gentleman that we talked to quite a bit. He was retired and had his entire winter booked between four state parks he would rotate from campground to campground . I believe he also to advantage of the senior discount. Spent his summers in New Hampshire on his sons property.

RE: Residency and voters rights in South Dakota

Strange so many against democracy and the right to vote. Hell, Walaby wants only land owners to be able to vote. Do I see any hands for a poll tax? Hey we tried that allowing women to vote how is that working? Glad this bunch isn't writing the voting laws.

RE: Residency and voters rights in South Dakota

I can sum this up in one sentence. Find something constructive to do rather than sit around and gripe about politics. It’s a sign that you’re old and feeble. Don’t let people think that about you. You can change if you want. My in-laws are like this now and it’s soooo annoying to those around them. The first election I remember was Ike and Adlai in 56. I assure you following politics is not just for the old folks. We did not opt for South Dakota for any tax breaks. Our former state did not tax retirement or SS funds Also the vehicle tax on our 5er, F350 tow and wife's Lil pickup is more than that of our previous domicile. Insurance is less so I see the higher vehicle taxes as a break even. There maybe are those that are looking for relief from states that continue to suck their citizens dry for the pleasure of residing there even after they fed the beast during their earning years. Now the advantage for South Dakota is they can claim us old folks which can bring Fed funds that can assist their year round seniors. Hey Grit Dog ever slide down to Oregon to save on sales tax?

RE: Ford's issues

Its the dealerships that really cast a shadow on manufacturers. Charging huge markups just because they could and when was the last time you bought a car at a dealership. It takes hours. Sure ford has had its share of issues, but so does everyone else. I've had more good dealings with car/truck purchases than bad over my 50 years. It's service writers that suck. All they are are salesmen and look at every customer as an ignorant mark. I have 3 outstanding recalls on my 2017 F350 and just received a notice for a fourth. I am a fulltime RVer so basic maintenance is seldom repeat business. It seems that their computers are always down when I inquire about the recalls. Going to be at the present location for the next two months so I'll give Ford regional a call see if they can assist a valued customer.

RE: Residency and voters rights in South Dakota

The question is why now? I am registered as an Independent in SD. That being so I don't vote in primaries. Don't vote in the local elections am only concerned with the the National elections. We have made it a point to be in our county of residents for when early voting begins though we have voted once by mail when we couldn't get there due to other commitments. I can't speak for others but we have been SD residents for the last 12 years and I believe our political views are similar to the majority of South Dakota residents in national policy. It bewilders me why these politicians want to disenfranchised their constituents.

RE: Washer issue driving me nuts

We have a Splendide 2100XL going on 6 years fulltiming. Only time it was not used was one summer in Alaska. Wife does the cleaning routine monthly and only adds vinegar. She leaves the door open a inch or so when not in use. I clean the lint vent every couple months. Hopefully it will last another 6 years.

RE: Visible Cell Plans & Service

Be aware, however, that it will slow your data when the network is congested. We've been on it for a couple of years and we have never seen that throttling. I did not see a mention of that in the new plan description either. However they do throttle to 5 mb/sec at all times. Usually not an issue. Just going by what the rep told me. I'm sure it doesn't apply to everyone in every situation. If the plan were perfect, nobody would use Verizon anymore. I dropped Verizon 2 years ago for T-mobile cut my bill in half with unlimited data. Pleased for the most part but coverage isn't as good. I am also AT&T customer since 1993 as fulltimers we knew we could cover better with two providers. I did switch to Consumer Cellular to as they cost less than AT&T but the same coverage. For all of you worried about price and service I paid $50 a month in '93' for 50 minutes and roaming was a toss up I got nailed with a $11 roaming charge for a 1 minute call letting a customer know I would be late due to a weather related accident that tied up traffic.

RE: How to keep a TC from being stolen when not on the truck?

Something my daddy taught me years ago. If you can't afford to replace it, insure it.

RE: New Orleans

We spend the fall/winter on the Northshore but don't arrive till week of Thanksgiving and we're gone before tax day in April. If you like hot and humid you'll be right at home. Bring your bug spray.

RE: New here! 1986 Holiday Rambler Alternator

You'll need a high output alternator. You have both chassis and house batteries to charge.

RE: Got forced into MS 365

My windows lost all colors as well I had to return to original factory setup but it kept the files I had transferred from previous laptop. It did remove Apps I had added but they were saved in a folder as removed Apps.

RE: Dayton to West Yellowstone I-90 and I-94

We've taken both at one time or another in the last 5 years both are fine.

RE: OT -- Oregon Trail

We've traveled most of the trail. It isn't one trail there are several different paths attempts to find better or safer routes. All of them are fine in our modern-day prairie schooners.

RE: RVIA Certificate?

Never been asked for a RIVA #. Never asked for the age of our 5er. Have been asked about out pup, slightly larger than most resorts permit 110# but he's loveable. We do travel mainly early Spring or just as most parks are shutting down in the Fall. I think that may be all about $'s.

RE: Refrige operation in cold weather

If you run it during the daylight traveling but worried about the night in the 20s or teens just turn it off till your on the road again. If its that cool it will take some time to alter the internal temp of the fridge. Just remember the second law of thermodynamics, if anything the temp may get a degree or two lower.

That's funny - I find Florida drivers to be among the worst I've seen in North America. You are absolutely right. And where did they come from?? Yup, you guessed it. Only about 35% of Floridians are native Floridians. About 1.6 million 'Floridians' were born in New York (that's about 8% of Florida's total population) . . . helps explain a large part of the problem :C If they're from NYC they may got their first DL in the sunshine state.

Thirteen years south in the fall north in the spring. Down in South Louisiana presently.
