RE: Fireplace in TV, Do they work?

If you only have 30 amp service you’ll need to watch whatever else you use. But no different with other electric devices.

RE: Fireplace in TV, Do they work?

They are basically a 5100 watt electric heater that you do not have to get out, set on a hard surface and plug in... You sure about that wattage? :?

RE: Advice on Campgrounds

When you go to Asheville, take a look at Campfire Lodgings just north in Weaverville. One of our favorite CG’s.

RE: Who is responsible for discounts?

I’ll take the opposite view. There is who’s responsible and wanting perhaps to earn or perhaps lose a repeat customer. I find it a better experience if the checkin staff ask if I qualify for x-y-z discounts. The words I hate to hear are “Well you didn’t ask”. Sometimes people who qualify for a senior discount may not notice the sign saying we give senior discounts (but only if you ask). Sometimes websites aren’t real clear either. As the park owner you have already decided to offer a discount, have factored it in your business plan, so smile at me and ask are you ex-military, older than dirt. Heck even KOA lets me know when I have enough points for a free night.

RE: toad versus no toad

I doubt you will save enough in gas to count, may be easier to get in and out of some stations. If you plan your stops should not be a problem. We’ve been place where there aren’t either rental agencies or Uber. You’ve got the perfect car to site see in the West especially if you’re the adventurous type and want to tour places like Monument Valley on you own.

RE: Myrtle Beach - Ocean Lakes, Pirateland or Lakewood

I quit going to any of the big 3 years ago. I prefer Myrtle Beach State park. Maybe I'm showing my age! I've come to prefer less action people and excitement vs. more action, people and excitement I totally agree with this and is in the same area as the big commercial parks. Another option might be Huntington Beach State Park. In both cases kids will find other kids to meet and find things to do. Both have nice walking trails, great beaches. If you want shopping, restaurants, mini golf, real golf, water parks they are just down the road.

RE: dealer advertising

Yeah forget the advertised monthly payment. Concentrate on finding the right floor plan from a good manufacturer. Then work on the price you’re willing to pay for it. If it’s from a dealer, there is plenty of room for them to come off their asking price.

RE: Class A, gas or diesel

Not all gas motorhomes are “cheaply made”, but many are. Check out some of the Newmar gas motorhomes such as the Canyon Star and Bay Star lines. We have the Bay Star Sport line and it’s made fairly well, but it is the low line of the Newmar products. We tow a 2015 Jeep Wrangler, and the mh handles it quiet nicely. Like all front engine gassers, and probably FRED’s it can get a bit noisy when it has to downshift up a grade. On Norman roads, the noise is good. They also make a great DP line of products. ;-)

RE: TV Antennas

Had the Winegard automatic and it will do a decent job finding local stations. But you still have to fine tune it are annually adjust it depending on location of towers. Even then you will still need to do the scan on you TV. Batwing brings in more from farther away.

RE: JL Wrangler brakeaway cable

On my 2015 JK I just drilled a hole through the firewall inline with the brake pedal.

RE: Animals in commercials

Have you seen that PETA wants Punxutawney Phil to be replaced with an animatronic robot. Geez,, its not like we BBQ him afterwards! Although,,,you gotta wonder what some apple wood and cattleman's sauce would taste like??:p Isnt that group People Eating Tasty Animals?? Yes it is.... Not unlike my friend the dietician encouraging me to eat more grain and vegetables. I tell her that ranchers feed grain and some veggies to their cows. I eat the cow.

RE: Animals in commercials

It would be great if the broadcaster would run an hour long show before the Super Bowl just for us who don’t watch pro sports. It may not take that long, but then they could run other commercials between the SB commercials. Then I wouldn’t have to record the super bowl and fast forward past the game and the semi porn halftime show just to see the commercials. On topic, always love a good animal commercial, even if it’s done with computer graphics.

RE: black tank chemicals

If you’re getting black tank oder then there is a venting or seal issue. If you have a black tank flush system the oder may emanate from a poorly sealing back flow valve, most likely somewhere in the bathroom vanity cabinet. I use Happy Campers to appease the DW, and to perhaps help with the breakdown of TP and solids.

RE: Find Past Postings ??

I’m surprised they have kept them as long as they have.

RE: Insurance Denying Claims

Any idea when this started and was there an event that precipitated cracking? Most likely a stress fracture. While there may not be any owner fixable seals or repairs, someone can and potentially could have. Might check with the manufacturer if they are still in business. They may have an extended term warranty of the structure part of the RV.

RE: Why do my emails disappear?

What mail app are you using? Who is your email provider? How long are they there before they go away? Are they gone or moved to trash/deleted?

RE: Mh propane capacity discrepency

I doubt the gauges on the tank are precise. E may not be Empty. If you really want to know how much it actually holds, run it empty.

RE: Storing with jacks up, or down?

Put the jacks down sufficient to take pressure off the tires and suspension. Mice will not climb a jack leg (regardless of how powered), no traction. In addition, increase tire pressure by 20% over normal to reduce flat spotting and adjust back down when you lower the unit. Jack pistons only need to be clean, no grease required.

RE: Cleaning your AC Filter

Yes, just like home systems if you run without filters the air flow will be better. One of the reasons RV furnaces don’t have them. But as mentioned you will eventually clog the cooling fins which are harder to clean than the filter.
