RE: Wi-Fi extenders

I was having issues with WiFi reaching all my rooms. Asked a buddy and he asked how was the router setup? 2 or 5Ghz. Said that 2 will provide better service through walls, etc. Tried it, and it made a big difference. Might try that first.

RE: Opinions Appreciated (yeah about tires)

Have you tried tirerack.com? Request the search by tire size. Lots of good tires out there.

RE: Long term parking Tampa airport/staying in RV

Call the Tampa airport or parking area owners and ask them. I suspect they wouldn’t care, and what they don’t know ....

RE: Water and Gas Usage Rates

If you’re going to visit warm climates in the summer, and MD can get quite hot, you’ll want to run the AC more than you think. The worst thing you can do is let the RV get hot in the first place. Try to find heavily shaded spots. I know squat about gens especially gas vs propane, but the manual that comes with should tell you consumption rates under load. JMO.

RE: Open container laws?

I suspect the same laws that pertain to auto’s pertain to Motorhomes regarding consumption. Having an open liquor bottle in the cupboard or fridge should be fine as you have to put it somewhere. And while many ignore the law, if the seat you’re sitting in has a seatbelt, you need to be using it. If it doesn't, you can’t.

RE: Upgrades to existing sofa

Must be nice to have the skills to do that kind of work. Looks nice.

RE: Flip Phone

Hah... Not a phone issue but ... about 15 years ago, my then FIL (in his mid 80’s) had three cars - A mid 60’s Ford Country Squire station wagon, a mid 70’s Jeep 4 door something, and a mid 80’s Chrysler New Yorker. One day he arrives at my house in a recent model Buick Custom, not a very high tech vehicle but more so than anything else he had, and he had kept the other three. A few weeks later he comes back to my house driving the Jeep. I had to ask - “Jimmy why did you not drive the Buick?” To which he responded “I can’t figure out all the buttons and knobs”. Now that I’m in my mid 60’s, I’m starting to both understand and empathize with his plight.

RE: How much water to ad to black tank when starting out.?

I never add water to the black tank when starting a trip cause I always keep some water in it which I think is the best thing to do to prevent “stuff” from sticking to the bottom, sides, valves. After I dump and flush, I simply put one or two toilet bowls worth of water in the tank.

RE: why only one page of posts?

If you look at the individual subject specific forums the threads keep going. I've seen various threads stay alive for a week or more. Clicking "Newest" is nothing more than a database query. ............... Correct. Newest bring up new threads, not new posts. So any older threads with new activity do not show up as "newest". On a brand specific forum I frequent, clicking on new posts brings up any new threads or older threads that have new activity since I last visited the site. A better way to do it IMHO. This is all true, BUT . . . . . In it's hey day, it would be common to see 4-5-6 pages of NEW threads.... And this would be fine, IF it would only show the new threads since the last time YOU signed in. Or like some other forums indicate “the threads below here have not changed since the last time you logged in”

The above is true, but it also represents a software change, function change which I think they could have notified us about. I used to whine (to myself) that the “Newest” was a list of the last sequentially added topics, versus the latest postings regardless of the age of the topic. So I usually just go to “Active”

RE: Flip Phone

Check out Consumer Cellular. I know they have a new flip phone for about $25 bucks and some very cheap plans depending on your needs. You don’t have to have a data plan. I just switched my 93 yo MIL to CC from Verizon. Unfortunately for you they use the AT&T network. But if the move is to save some money, and get a new phone, check it out. DW and I are moving to Spectrum Mobile that uses the Verizon network, and we expect to save a bunch. My phone is already switched, and so far all is good.

RE: Extension cords

Find a local CG or state park and plug in as usual and use everything you need to be comfortable. Commute to the house.

Never had to prove I’m not a robot, although some think I have no feelings!

RE: Tea Kettle

Do an internet search of “small tea kettles stove top whistling”.

RE: 15 Amp Service

Agree run water heater, fridge, furnace on propane only. Try not to use microwave, coffee makers at the same time. How you use water is up to you. If family is in the south then use it as you normally do.

RE: pressure washers

IMO pressure washer will do a decent job of getting into little areas that you might miss with just a hose and mitt but doesn’t get it really clean. I get the same almost clean when taking car through a no touch or DIY spray car wash. If I have to use a brush or mitt, bucket of soapy water and hose why bring out the power washer?

RE: Water heater question

I think you’ll need a wrench that allows for the valve. I have looked at those anode rod/drain combos and have never found one for a Suburban. They have all said for Atwood. So be sure.

RE: V 10 mpg

With my 31 ft Class A I get between 7-8 pulling a toad which seems about the norm. This with speeds maintained in the 62-67 range. For me 9+ is but a dream.

RE: Thinking about downsizing to a B

The dry bath requirement in a B will greatly restrict your options. I can’t remember a B with room enough for a separate shower. Not accepting a Ford will further reduce your options. However if you’re open to just taking a look I’d suggest you look at the Winnebago Mini Winnie 22R.

RE: Quick question about oil changes

How often do you actually drive the thing? For a variety of reasons you should take it down the road every now and then run the generator while doing it. Tires need to be run too. Changing oil once a year is a good idea and not the costly.
