RE: Brown Gray Water in sink??

Many of the Keurig machines have a "catch basin" that the cup sits on while brewing. When you remove the cup there are always a few drips. If you don't empty and clean that catch thing it can get real nasty. I try to clean mine often, otherwise it looks like a well seasoned black tank. :E

RE: Recommend a Propane Regulator

I had the Marshall Brass regulator untill a couple of years ago when it became unreliable. (it went from 11 inchec WC to 8 inches) Marshall Brass went out of business and the regulator was no longer available. I replaced it with a Camco that froze up once and whistled a lot. You could not see the red window with the plastic tank cover in place. I recently found out that Marshall Excelsior now makes an exact duplicate with an added test port to measure pressure. I bought and installed it last month and am pleased with it. I can now see the red window from the flip open cover on my tanks. Here is where I bought mine: MEGR-253

RE: Memorial Weekend Ruined

This certainly will ruin Memorial Weekend for a lot of people and not just campers. I watched more clips on the network news tonight. Over 100,000 gallons of oil leaked by a company that already had 175 violations before this incident. What an ugly mess of damaged beach and dead wildlife. Well, at least the state of CA is trying to protect me from those extension cords that cause cancer. If they had some spare time they could address those 175 violations!

RE: Memorial Weekend Ruined

I saw it on the evening network news and it was really UGLY! By ugly, I mean the damage to the environment and wildlife. What had been a beautifull white beach turned black with oil. Seems the spill was much larger than the first reports. SAD, verry sad. :M

RE: bears

How about, if they feed the bears...THEY get shot will the paint ball gun! ....Much more effective. :C We learned early in our camping experience to always put the days trash in the dumpster EXCEPT the one night my wife and I both thought the other had done it. The skunk that visited that evening firmly engraved in our heads to make sure it was done as the skunk tore open the plastic bag and had supper while we watched from a safe distance. :E

.... Thankfully the front ones divert the water directly over my outside storage doors so the water is conveniently diverted directly on my head when I need to open a storage door. ....That is a time saving design feature, wash your hair while unloading. :C ... or in my case wash both hairs on my head. :Z

RE: Champion 75531i 3100w Inverter/Generator Initial Review

Nice helpfull review. ... I saw the unit on sale at Cabelas for $699. ....Looks like you got a good deal. I see Amazon has it for $839.99 & FREE Shipping with a List Price of $1,399.00. Cabelas website shows noise level 58dBA at 23ft. Amazon also has a wireless remote start version for $944.00 + $55.00 shipping.

RE: Terrible Experience

I still don't understand how this became a KOA bashing thread. The OP listed 3 specific things, in addition to attitude, about a campground: $10 fee for checking in an hour early. $20 "day use fee". $5 for a dump fee every five days. I don't see those fees listed anywhere on the campground website so I too would be upset at being blindsided with them. The only thing about visitors is this quote: All visitors must check in at the office to register and recieve a car tag and wristband The OP in no way condemmed ALL KOA campgrounds.

RE: Need some help, shore power tripping breaker/buzzing

You can verify that it is the shore cable by disconnecting the hot and neutral at the main circuit breaker in the camper where the shore cord connects. After disconnecting those 2, measure at the shore cord plug as you did earlier.

RE: Terrible Experience

A LOT of KOA bashing here even though the OP was not bashing KOA. OP didn't like the attitude from a camground that had KOA in the name.

RE: Best rebuttal yet!

An interesting (humor?) comment from a post on the NFL website: I wish my favorite team was good enough to be so hated.

Cut the bottom off and tell everyone it is the latest designer concept. :C I recall my wife did something like that with a table cloth she purchased for a big family dinner. Went to set the table the night before and table cloth was a foot or so too short. :E Oops!, searched the house till we found an old one that was just fine. OOPS!, just noticed you posted this yesterday. Hope things went well. Congrats to your son.

RE: Spammers

We try to catch them asap, ....As far as I can see, mods are doing a fantastic job of catching them. I can't recall when I last saw any spammers here.

RE: Straight Talk ZTE Z289L hotspot experience

There is a lengthy discussion of the problems with the unit on the Straight Talk Forums. There is a potential solution on page 8 but it requires some technical skills to complete! ZTE Z289L Hotspot problems1985air345, thanks for that info and link. I really got a laugh out of the Straight talk reps on that forum with the constant answer "Hi #######! My name is Straight Talk ###### and I would like to answer your query. For me to assist you further, we need to take this issue offline so I can address it. I will contact you directly with a private message. Thank you!". Why will they not discuss it in public so everyone can learn? I returned 2 units to Walmart for the exact issues mentioned in that forum.

RE: Gray tank neck crack (is patching possible? Plasti-Mend?))

ABS can easily be plastic welded. ...Plasti-Mend is better than the heat type plastic weld for ABS.

RE: Stiff Neck --- New Radar Assisted Car Any Help??

IMO an easier solution and it's what I always do, Back into the parking slot, that way you have control of the parking spot before backing in and can see everything, and then when you pull out you're facing forward with a clear field of vision.A telcom company I worked for REQUIRED anyone driving a company car back in like that. It became automatic for me to do that even with my own car. It also makes it easy to see people walking. My wife saw a painfull incident where someone backed out and ran over a pedestrian in a parking lot.

RE: Data usage of Tivo Roamio OTA

I have the slightly older series 3 HD TIVO. It seems to use very little data. My ISP (Cox cable) has a nice little graph that shows daily usage. When we go away for several days TIVO guide update is about the only use along with my webcams. The graph plunges to around 20kb to 40kb per day. Seems like 1Gb per month would cover it.
