RE: No CD player in new coach

There are several portable CD players that provide connections to a in dash system, and most now support Bluetooth connectivity so no cables. Instead of burning all my CD’s to a laptop (don’t use one anymore) to move to iPhone, as I don’t like every song on every CD, I just purchase the songs I listen to from iTunes Store and there available on all My Apple devices. Plus with Family Share, the wife has access to them as well.

RE: Cleaning Water Jugs

Basically the same way you sanitize the water tank in your camper. For a six gallon jug you need very little bleach or peroxide. An ounce of bleach would be plenty. Fill the jug, let it sit for a couple hours, drain/fill twice.

RE: why do renewing members get a raw deal?

I think the worst of these promo ads is Sirius XM where they offer a new customer rate but fail to mention all the fees that are added to the bill, which as I remember double the monthly bill. Never have or will be a paying customer.

RE: Campground availability on shorter notice

Fuel prices. And overall inflation causing many to curb their travel plans. More people may actually have found they need to back to work.

RE: Water Pressure

Is this on pump or park water? If park water do you have a screen style washer at the hose connection? Could it clogged?

RE: Hot Water Replacement

I’ve never understood how a small OD wh can provide adequately (subjective I know) hot water for a high flow requirements of a shower, especially during the colder months.

RE: Low tree branches in my development ..Update

Heck, the Feds have very little power versus the railroads. Raising a old RR bridge from 9’ to 13 or 14 feet would be really expensive.

RE: Quiet door latch

Tell the kids to quit slamming the door! Just have them close the door firmly.

RE: Don't let your guard down, Covid is still out there...

So three weeks ago I go into the hospital to have a heart cath and the next day I come down with chills, severe congestion, feel like warmed over death. Lasts about two weeks. Took two Covid tests and was negative both times. 68 yo, heart issues, COPD, and a few other old guy related complications. I can see how people with severe lung issues could be in trouble with flu, COVID, severe cold, pneumonia. Plenty of viruses, etc that can cause us harm. Do what you think you need to do.

RE: Happy With Android OS

I’ll support the notion that Android is a better option than Windows for a variety of reasons unless you have a need for software that only runs on Windows. Glad you are happy with your choice of OS. I’ve heard but good things about Android. I standardized on IOS and thus far we have two iPhones XR’s, two iPads - one a 5+ yo Pro, two Apple watches, one Apple TV, and two cars with Apple CarPlay. All running current version of IOS. I have an old Windows Surface I use for doing my taxes but that ends next year and it’ll be recycled.

RE: What size generator to run AC??

Don’t know brands to buy, but do know that while you CAN get by with a 2200, a 3500 range will provide sufficient power and allow more things to be run without issues.

RE: CG Prices

RV “Resorts” will be more expensive than CG’s. RV anything near major areas, tourist areas, beaches, amusement parks, will be more expensive than those that are just along the way to them. We just took our great nephew to Carolina Pines RV Resort near Conway, SC and had a great time even though the main water park attraction was close for construction. They are adding more water stuff to do. It was a bit pricey but enough to do there, not too far from all the stuff in MB area without the traffic. I prefer state parks especially those that still have lots of trees, but every now and then a full service resort is a nice change.

RE: How do you in the S/E handle high humidity inside your rig?

We don’t have too much issues. We run the roof ac with all windows and vents closed, making sure the dash ac had been set to recirc to make sure the damper is closed.

RE: TV mount

I think an issue with the above mount assumes a stationary place. Need something to permanently hang the TV to keep it mounted while traveling.

RE: Dometic RM 2662 fridge issue

Gret a new one assuming you can find one and can get it installed (or install it yourself).

RE: Wipes!!!

Every major city sewage system spends thousands or hundreds of thousands of $’s clearing wipes and other items from their filter systems. We have a separate can for wipes.

RE: Poly Glow.

My take is it’s worth a bit of/more of UV protection. Your experience may differ.

RE: Poly Glow.

It’s all acrylic, thick enough (after a few thin costs) to fill the imperfections in the surface which is essential to creating a smooth shine. After applying any of these products you should follow up with any of the spray on wipe off UV protectors periodically to further help the shine last.

RE: CC safety

A couple of things. Check if your card issuer allows to to turn your card on or off. Then you can turn the card on before you use it and back off after. Look into getting an Apple Watch. (I assume android has similar). With my watch I can pay for things without the need to actually produce the credit or debit card I want to use. I also applied for and have an Apple Credit Card (Mastercard through Goldman Sachs). The card has no (zero) numbers displayed on it, just my name. I use it everywhere I have to actually produce a card. No way for them to get the numbers. Also, it can be setup so the 3 digit CVV code with change after N number of uses, and if I need/want to change the card number from time to time. Very secure. The watch also receives the same notifications as my phone.
