RE: Cold weather, generators, and campgrounds

Sounds like the park ranger and/or camp host need to do a better job of informing everyone generators are not allowed at set times for ANY reason. Assuming there is cell service, a phone number to contact ranger should be provided for people to report someone who violates the rule AND is causing a problem. If the offender is five or six sites away, not sure it affects me. I don’t believe a camp host is the person to address the issue at 2:30 in the morning.

RE: Hanging tiki lights

Have you checked to see if your awning can be lowered? I suspect it can. Assuming it’s a powered awning, there might be a knob on each support arm that is used to raise/lower the awning.

RE: simple laptop solution for RV travel

iPads don’t usually have external keyboards. But there are several after market keyboard/cover combos.

RE: Do I Want to Break Down Solids?

I disagree with the poop tank technician. If you don’t break down the solids it increases the possibility for “them” to create a blockage, add in copious amounts of TP which will further increase the chance. But DO use plenty of water, and dump only when near full.

RE: bunk beds

We bought our mh with the intent of taking our great nephew camping or on trips. Thus far after 5 years only a couple of times. We use the space as is for extra storage, overflow for DW’s clothes, shoes, whatever. This way if he wants to go, we still have the bed.

RE: It took over 5 hrs to dispatch help.

How did you lose 4 lug nuts in the first place? I would have thought you would have already encountered a much worse situation than just missing lug nuts.

RE: Touchy subject - proper toilet paper for black tank

It’s not so much what to you choose to use, but how much of it you use per use. If you throw big wads of it down the toilet you may create blockages. Also don’t throw “Butt Wipes” down the toilet.

RE: Windshield sunscreen

Bought a big roll of Reflectix and made a shade for every window, and every cabinet on an outside wall.

RE: Fuel mileage

If a driver is in the far right lane and doing 55-60 it’s hard for them to be the cause of an accident. Most of the time I suspect someone following the slower driver isn’t paying attention.

RE: Fuel mileage

So if you collect all this data and don’t compute your mileage, why collect it? My DW always gets a receipt at each fill up and stuffs it in the glove box but never does anything with them. I do agree with your sentiment. And now to answer the OP’s post, after some 29k miles towing/not towing, my average is high sixes to mid sevens. (2016, Newmar BSS, 31ft, Ford V10) I drive the Ford V-10 motorhome shown in my sig, towing the Jeep shown in my sig. I keep a log book where I enter every gallon of gas that is put in the tank, what date I bought it, how much it cost, and the odometer reading. I have never computed the MPG, because I just don't care! I know it is terrible, and I know it is to be expected. Worrying about fuel economy in a motorhome is an exercise in futility. It is terrible, and there is very little that can be done to improve it!

RE: Tow hall mode

In my case I start the engine , press tow/haul. If I’m driving in very flat straight roads I’ll turn it off.

RE: looking for a specific floorpan

Can’t help on finding what you want, but my advice would be don’t limit what you get based on your F150. If you truly are just going to park it, pay someone to haul it if necessary.

RE: Kia, Hyundai: Please come to the rescue "Pathetic Quality"

Don’t blame the line workers, blame the management for not doing a proper job of inspecting the work product at each step of the process. Most RV’s are built by hand unlike the modern automotive industry which uses a lot of robots and other automated processes. Ours was built missing a rear window, was missing floor heat register, the Dura Shield on the front had to be replaced twice as it came from the factory looking like bubble wrap. Yes the workers may have made an error, but obvious stuff should have been caught. What really frost my buttocks though is the crappy furniture and appliances that go into these things.

RE: Jeep toad ?

If you looking for a nice cushy ride, a Wrangler may not be for you. We got a wrangler and love it but a bit rough on rough roads. Tows nice, simple setup, I buy another if I ever need to.

RE: 400 mile electric RV

I call BS. Like all EV mileage estimates they don’t state impact of running AC or heat when required. I’m still not prepared to sit for an hour to partially refuel an electric vehicle. They are going to need a lot more charging stations than there are fuel pumps along the highways to handle the flow. And we will still need gas pumps for the foreseeable future unless some mandated use to get rid of gas/diesel vehicles.

RE: Extended Warranty: Why do I need it?

I’d ask if there are any other “goodies” they’ve priced in. The best two letter answer to most offers from dealers is NO. ask to see all the warranties that are in place (fridge, AC, water heater, furnace, etc), and note the length of warranty terms.

Myrtle Beach State Park. Huntington Beach State Park. End of suggestions.

RE: Doghouse

There should be several bolts on each side of the doghouse that secure it. They may be hard to find in the carpeting.

RE: GM and others shutting down production.

Time to start rethinking supply chains. Perhaps the manufacturers could form a partnership to address mailing more stuff here. Surely the feds could require all critical vehicles, weapons of war, be sourced from 100% made in America parts. Should not rely on an enemy to provide parts for military equipment, or critical communications equipment.

RE: Samsung smart tv

Can you do a total reset on the tv back to factory settings? How do OTA channels look if you can get them?
