Boy, this could get ugly fast. Quite a few RV parks in the Boise area, are full, and have been for 3 years or longer with full time residents. I asked on owner why, and was told that for 2 years they have been full because of the local economy. Look at their side, a monthly fee, every month, all year long. They must keep their lot clean and orderly, or they are required to vacate the area. I can see their side of it, a more or less steady income, all year long, instead of the hit or miss of the seasonal travels.

RE: Is it time to trip

I heard the FL gov issued orders requiring people flying in from NY & NJ must go into a 14 day quarantine.You can hear anything hanging around the outhouse. You cannot do that unless someone declares Martial Law.

RE: Is it time to trip

Ron, let us know how the Closing the State boarders work. There is only one way that can happen, but Americans have been Free for too long for many to put up with that.

RE: Is it time to trip

Since the original poster's signature was in WA, we should note that the state has closed all state campgrounds, all DNR and Forest Service land to camping. So, I guess the answer is you can't go camping even if you want to. Stay home, stay safeThis is a bitter pill to get down. This was a late announcement, and we wonder what has driven it. DNR, Federal forest Service land is not that crowded, especially this time of year, something about snow/mud. If you don't live in Washington, you haven't been exposed to our Governor's speeches, we really need some ADULT Super vision in our government...... Hey, if you can get out, it may not be a bad idea.

RE: Is it time to trip

Rule #1....People die. Rule #2....Doctors can't change rule #1. Am I doing what I can to keep from getting sick? You bet ya! Am I really going to stay in my house and avoid all outside human contact? Nope. I am still hopeful the company will release be from my current job so I can get to Stone Mountain campground and enjoy a week or so of peaceful relaxation. Well Bill, we should be well chastised. I guess we are not too Entitled, like others are.

RE: My 12 lights and other appliances do not work from battery

Your converter uses the same electrical paths as you batteries. If you have power when plugged in, but not when unplugged, the problem may be with your batteries?

RE: My 12 lights and other appliances do not work from battery

Tom, I think you may be on the right path. If you have 12 volts working when plugged in or the gen is running, the converter is supplying the 12 volt power. If you have 6 volt batteries for the house, it could be a bad connect between them, or a problem with one of the batteries. Start with the house batteries and verify you have the required voltages total and between them. Then work out from there. There are a number of different isolation/disconnect circuits on MHs. Try www.intellitec.com website for instructions on trouble shooting and actual circuits. Good luck

RE: 4-way Flashers not working

It could very well be your turn signal switch that is the problem. Replaced quite a few police car turn switches because they would set with their food on the brake for long periods of time. All the functions go through the switch, brakes, flashers, and turn signals. The contacts would over heat and melt the housings, resulting in either not contact, or contact all the time.

RE: Tv while traveling

If you don't have internet, WiFi, or cell service, the only option is satellite,and then you need a clear view of the southern sky. The only thing that will work, if you have power, is DVDs. At times the news is good to have, as you wonder if the glow on the Western horizon is a beautiful sunset, or thermal nuclear war. Then again, its just nice to be around a campfire and watch the wild things start wandering around.

RE: Renting out your RV--Help

On another forum, this same question was asked. Similar replies, except for one that had a small business of RV rentals. He mainly rented to fixed functions, and delivered the RVs and picked them up. He said he acquired less the usuable RVs and fixed them up hisself, and did the maintainces hisself. I guess if you approace it as a business and are not too attached to the RVs, it not a problem. But it can be a head ache.

RE: Renting out your RV--Help

Maybe there is no need to write another article? Best are the true first hand stories. I will suggest the OP should start renting out the RV as frequently as possible. Be fearless.Scott, you are wrong, their are other RV forums that are a lot worse than this one is. It is very seldom things get out of control on this one. Anyone that has had a S&B rental, knows to not rent their own RV out.

RE: New Laminated Glass vs Reseal dual pane Windows

We traveled mostly during the Winter months out West and always found that our windshield sweated so much that we had to put towels at the bottom to soak up the water. The windshield is laminated glass. Our side windows, in which Monaco used double pane glass, did not sweat but the aluminum frames would occasionally sweat. We had a fogging problem in two windows and went to Suncoast in Hudson, FL to have them repaired. My own experience told us that the best choice was to use the double pane windows. Yes this is true, the frames of the dual pane windows also sweat quite a bit, but the dual pane are much better for quite and comfort. Fire up seems to have had good luck with the laminated glass, but we will stick with the dual pane.

RE: The Verdic is in, New Ford 7.3 V-8 Gas mpg not so Great

OK, you have a more or less, a fixed load that you want to transport a given distance in a given amount of time. You have two options, a 6.9L engine and a 7.3 L engine. Both can do the job, but you may have to work the smaller engine harder to meet the time requirements. It would stand to reason, the larger engine would require more fuel to just maintain idle due to the larger parts that are rotating. It stands to reason that the larger engine should be able to do the same amount of work without having to work as hard. So, the slightly increased fuel consumption should not be a concern, because if it is working easier, you will be more relaxed when driving. This should be the big plus of the larger engine. I believe that Rabbit Man has said it all....

RE: Dually valve extenders

There are probably thounsans of people that have and use the braided extentions and never have any problem with them. There are "O" ring seals that are a wear item, that should be replaced at times.

RE: Self Driving 18 wheeler Going 75 MPH

no way is the world ready for self driving anything. Do it all the time in my A. Set cruise control on, tie a bungy cord to the steering wheel, and go in the back to take a nap. So far so good! :ZBungy cord, where did you learn about the bungy cord. The sales people did not say anything about using a bungy cord, and there is nothing in the information that came with the MH about a bungy cord either.
