RE: Can’t get dealer info I need on battery charging

Find who makes the charger and ask them.

RE: Electric Propulsion Reality Check

Around here there are several new fuel stations being built with many many islands for vehicles to use. However they are all petroleum products based. I have yet to see any significant outlay of capital or real estate to support electric vehicles. It could be that there is insufficient data to predict the need. Not so much because EV’s aren’t going to sell but the majority of them will be able to be charged at home and never need a public place to charge.

RE: Good Sam - what's in it for the campgrounds?

Well, as a customer just like with the KOA moniker, you come to expect certain standards and amenities to be met or available by a Good Sam Park. In both cases there may be the occasional disappointment. However when looking for a park in an area if there are several and one is a GS they get the first call.

RE: Water softener

I’d put the filter first

RE: Broken windshield, 2015 Thor Vegas 24.1 Lafayette La.

Agree with olfarmer. Check with your insurance company for two reasons. They will do the legwork (or already know) who in the area to go to. Second, depending on your insurance policy you may have a zero deductible for glass coverage. You do not need to have it replaced at a RV shop. When mine needed replacing Binswanger Glass came to my house and did all the work onsite.

RE: Slide seal protectant

A spray on product like 303 with UV protection will help keep the rubber pliable and thus make a good seal.

RE: Windows 10 Update - Frozen at Downloading 100%

My Windows Surface updated yesterday. I took it out of the storage bin and decided to update it. I do that one or twice a year as I only use it once a year anyway to do taxes. It took several update sessions to finally get to the new version, but all worked well, several hours though. The most expensive PC I ever bought was a IBM PC AT with 16 meg of memory, and a single diskette drive. Had to pay extra for a huge for the time 20 meg hard drive, total cost was over $6K. I currently use my iPhone or iPad for 99% of what I need to do. For the most part everyday they just work, I don’t have to worry about constant updates for security purposes. Are they perfect, heck no but my experience with them over the last 5 years is so much better that the 20 plus years with Windows. I have only touched a Mac once while helping out a friend and it was not a pleasant time.

RE: Question for ZEP (RMP) users?

I don’t have any long term experience but when I used Mop-in-Glo on mine I knew it would need some UV protection. It can not hurt to apply 303 and will delay the time you need to refresh the ZEP. ZEP is not a once and done forever deal.

RE: adding 2nd air on 30 amp system

Good. Just be advised that some campgrounds don’t allow the use of multiple cords from one pedestal. You may want to look into a 50 amp to two 30 amp splitter/adapter.

RE: Charleston SC

The Mount Pleasant KOA fits your distance objective and is a well run, well maintained property. We’ve stayed there a few times and will definitely go back.

RE: Jay Leno predicts demise of vehicles running on gas.

I’m 65 years old and do not believe the TOTAL demise of existing petroleum based vehicles will happen in my lifetime. However new electric vehicles for personal transportation will become the norm. As battery technology improves, charging times are reduced, miles between charging are increased, electric will be more accepted. Many countries have already called for the end of production of petroleum based vehicles. Metropolitan areas will go first, rural areas have issues that need to be addressed. But they will be.

RE: Why not forget holding tanks and just use portable tanks?

If you straight piped the toilet to the portable tank, and used a std home style toilet then I’d might work for the black tank. Not sure what you gain.

RE: Chrome won't run.. fix

I’ve dumped Windows and have very few issues.

RE: Mama Gerties

We drove trough once and to us, unless you get the top spots, just another CG. We much prefer https://www.campfirelodgings.com/ Much more personal, smaller place but great views if you get the premium sites, or nearby.

RE: Curious

Only thing we've ever had stolen was at a music festival, and someone stole some beers out of a cooler that was sitting outside in the middle of the night ;) Raccoons will steal anything....

RE: Filter for beach water

Exactly the reason we bring our own. Most of the time we use the camp water but from time to time you get bad water, or they have to cut the water off for maintenance. BTW what campground, what beach?

RE: RV Ovens

We use our oven for storage and our toaster oven for cooking. Best bread box (and most expensive) I’ve ever owned. Had 5 motorhomes and have never used the oven. Not much use for the stove top either. But then this is not a helpful reply...:B

RE: Miles per day.

200 - 250 miles in a F53 based mh is a good range for us. Have done 300 but never again unless some tragedy requires it. Allows for later starts and still get where we’re going while the sun still shines.

RE: Water heater pop off valve

Don't know. Never had to change one. Heard too many times that they don't reseat after testing so we don't test. I fought with a dripping valve for years. Then I quit messing with the valve and now it drips no more.

RE: Tax me

New tax laws allow/require internet sales to collect state tax even if there is no physical presence.
