RE: Verizon's free 15gig

Pretty simple to go to "My Verizon" to find that it has been added. Except when it is not there, like on my phone's "My Verizon" app.

RE: I'm going camping.

I'm thinking in part it's a staffing issue. Staff will have to interact with people for what is seen as an option recreational experience (full timers excluded). Also the bathrooms provide an overlapping common area that must be cleaned even more often than usual. Locking the bathrooms isn't enough as unprepared people will resort to using the bushes. You can imagine the mess that would create.

RE: Furnace Short-Cycling

Also, to answer your question, system NEVER shuts down, just short-cycles. Regarding that restrictor inside the exhaust vent tube, which decreases the inside dimension of the tube to about 1/2" diameter, do you know it's purpose? When it's removed, no more short-cycling. Can I just remove that restrictor permanently? My wild guess is the restrictor is there to help with the efficiency. Too much flow out the exhaust is sending heat directly outdoors.

RE: I'm going camping.

I’m not sure there’s a point to allowing in-county and not out. Spreading is spreading and it’s not like you’re going to keep it out of the county. Enjoy your camping while you can.

RE: Can You Pass Through States with Stay at Home Orders?

Here's an interesting article about how RVs are being used during the crisis. https://tiny.iavian.net/ytqg Sorry, don't know why this is not a clickable link. You have to use the little earth icon to post clickable links. Fixed yours.

RE: Is a tandem axle cargo trailer worth the extra $ over single

One question as I will be looking at used trailers as well is how can I tell what type of axle is on the trailer? If you look at one side and see 1 tire, it’s a single axle. If there are two, it’s a tandem. Sorry, I couldn’t resist. :B By type do you mean weight rating or brand or ?

RE: Will fridge run off tow vehicle on batts on TT?

Curious what brand paint will you spray on the metal? Ive got some frame rust around my battery box that has needed attention. Had not really thought that far in advance, I have a few cans of black laying around, thought I would use that. If it starts rusting I will spray it with a rust inhibiting paint, I tend to stay on top of those things. I call it attention to detail, my friends call it something else. POR-15 (paint over rust) does a phenomenal job at covering and stopping rust. It’s expensive but a little goes quite a ways.

RE: Will fridge run off tow vehicle on batts on TT?

There will be no battery, it needs to go in the Nash that I am selling. And Yes, TW = Tow Wehicle. LOL, sorry about that. And it is a 2 way fridge and would be on propane. Federal LAW requires a fully charged functional battery in trailer while towing to activate the Emergency Breakaway----required to maintain voltage/braking for 15 minutes should trailer become disconnected from tow vehicle. Just saying....you will not be safely towing regardless of distance/time frame As for fridge... Tow vehicle '7 pin CHARGE' line is intended to charge/maintain trailer battery voltage while towing. W/O trailer battery----fridge will not have DC for controls/gas valve because tow vehicle alternator/voltage regulator will not 'see' the fridge DC demand. Buy a CHEAP 12V battery and toss it in the trailer........!~! x2 Alternatively if you have a vehicle battery that is up there in years, buy a new one for the vehicle and use the old one for the breakaway while underway.

RE: Can You Pass Through States with Stay at Home Orders?

From the article, "Those in jail for probation violations and low-level crimes — fourth-degree, disorderly persons or petty disorderly persons offenses — will be released Thursday." No felons. While not state wide many communities in Ohio are doing the same thing. Our county jail did the same here in Oregon.

RE: Hand-powered chainsaw -- for emergency use

I once tried an electric chain saw but found it to be useless because of it's lack of power as compared to gas chain saws. How long ago was that? I have an electric pruning saw on a pole with an 8 inch bar, the thing cuts fast and effortlessly. I suspect that an electric pruning saw purpose-buillt to deal mostly with only 2-4 inch limbs takes considerably less torque than what I use my 16 inch gas chain saw for - tree limbs and tree trunks up to around 14 inches in diameter (... or larger if I circle around the trunk with the saw). The electric chain saw that I gave up on was 120V AC powered via an extension cord ... probably way more capable, torque-wise, than any lithium battery powered chain saw. The electric chain saw I tried could in no way deal with tree limbs and tree trunks up to 14 inches in diameter. You must have had a turd of an electric saw. I have a 16” Stihl and 16” electric. Last year for the first time I used the electric to buck up a bunch of fir firewood logs well over 12” in diameter. The electric was darn close to the Stihl and much easier (lighter) to handle.

RE: RV Parks to be used to Quaratine people

It's crazy. This manufactured crisis has people stupid. According to the story, Los Angeles Co has a population of 10 million (10,000,000) but only 230 total cases and 2 deaths. That's a crisis? Hell, they abort more babies than that everyday. You are either on drugs or should be. This pandemic is just starting and is not manufactured. All these steps are an attempt to slow it's spread to prevent our hospitals from being overwhelmed. This could be like the 1918 Spanish flu. Italy has been having almost 500 die per day. That would be similar to over 3,000 per day in the US. That is what we are trying to prevent. Everyone should stay home and isolated. Italy is not a fair comparison. Their population is significantly older. The average age of their fatalities is almost 80. Then again, this is RV.net so I need to consider the audience. ;) While it’s not manufactured, we’re doing significant harm to our society and it’s not yet clear that it will be worth it.

RE: Germs, viruses and fuel pump handles and doors

Do you have any control over where all that food came from, and how it was handled before being placed on the shelves? I don't, but at least they are handled by commercial employees who at least in theory operate under guidelines and in the case of production, inspections. It's not perfect but better than no control. There's also a difference between being contaminated by a potential source or two versus every customer who came before me. Some "throwaway" things we do provide a sanitary benefit which seems to not be considered in the debate. Honestly I'm not really sure whether reusable grocery bags will cause more disease spread but I'm not sure anyone really knows.

RE: Germs, viruses and fuel pump handles and doors

I wonder if there’s any way to know if the rapid spread of Covid19 in Italy had anything to do with cultural habits like bringing your own grocery bags to the store? ;) I have no control over where everyone else’s bags have been before being placed in the common area where mine will be. Oregon outlawed “single use” plastic bags. The thing is every one we’ve ever brought home was used again and more. Now we have to buy more garbage bags.

RE: Spring Shakedown Trip cancelled

north carolina state park campgrounds are closed till further notice. trails and restrooms are openI just got kicked out of a CA park. Only a few campers here, well away from each other, yet they're not allowing camping but keeping the restrooms open for day use. A lot of us snowbirds rely on these parks on our way home. This doesn't make any sense to me. That is a stupid application of very generic “policy”. They should be allowing every other or every third spot to stay occupied and wave the 14-day stay limit. That’s the very definition of sheltering in place.

RE: Brand New Vizio 40 inch TV problem, HELP

Just a thought because we have a Vizio on the camper, did you make sure you selected "Cable" and not "Antenna" when you selected the source? Ours has that selection and nothing happens if the cable is hooked up and you select "Antenna". * This would be such a simple solution,....if only this Vizio had more than one place to connect two(2) co-ax cables. BTW all of this is in a BRICK House. The Dutch Star is a different subject (it's a 2003 model with the original CRT type Sony TVs).FWIW, my Vizio, that I have to select either "Antenna" or "Cable" also only has one coax connection. I have to change the setting on the TV depending on what I have connected to that single Coax input. If Cloud Dancers cable box outputs on channel 3 or 4, it needs to be on “Antenna”. Here’s what I found on how to change the mode: How do I change my Vizio TV from cable to antenna? How To Scan For Antenna Channels 1. Press the Menu button on your Vizio remote. 2. Go to “Tuner” and press OK on the remote. 3. The menu will have “Tuner Mode” listed at the top. Make sure this is set to Antenna. If it says Cable then change it to Antenna. 4. Select “Auto Channel Scan” and press the OK button.

RE: Thanks..and a Slide Question

I have no issues with a 6x10. I can see the tires at the road from my mirrors by looking under the wings. Backing is almost never in a straight line anyway. Ideally you always back to the left slightly.

RE: FL state parks open events canceled

I think the point of limiting the gatherings is to prevent an outbreak, not respond to it. Someone at a large gathering is more and more likely each day to have it and that means someone else likely will afterwards. One case now. You’ll have plenty soon enough. Florida probably has a disproportionate share of elderly as well.

RE: New Mexico State Parks Suspend Overnight Camping

Wow. I would have thought camping provides more distancing than for example, living in an apartment building. I expect many other copy cat states soon.
