RE: Was retirement for you a good or not so good choice?

Boy this thread has gone off the rails. Maybe the title should be changed to "Opinions on May/December relationships?".

RE: Costco Card @ SamsClub

You don't have to be a member of anything other than the human race to shop at Sam's Club. If you are not a member, you pay 10 percent more(not including pharmacy).

RE: Need a new Awning...where to buy?

Did you find the fabric to be good quality from this company? Did you install it yourself? I just got ours earlier this week. I received it around 36 hours after ordering so it was amazingly fast shipping. I opened it up, spread it out and inspected it. It is different than the original in construction but I think it will do fine. For half the cost of anywhere else I will risk the possibility of it being a little lower quality. I will install it in another week when I can get my boys to come over and help me.

RE: Need a new Awning...where to buy?

I got one here last year. You have to work the spline for the flap into the groove. I suggest at least one extra set of hands if possible two. I got replacement fabric from the same company but at a lower price on eBay; http://stores.ebay.com/RvAwningsMart?_trksid=p2047675.l2563

RE: rv freindly HOA in deleware

For clarity; a real estate agent is one who sells real estate, a Realtor is a member of the National Association of Realtors. The titles are not synonymous.

RE: rv freindly HOA in deleware

Beats me why anyone would actually seek out an HOA home. I have always avoided them. Contact a real estate agent in the area to find an HOA but they will probably have no idea if RV parking is allowed.

RE: Open cars and bears~~~etc?

Are you using the car for food storage? Bears are after food, otherwise they have no interest in your Miata.

RE: No power to Outlet all electrical equipment works

Bought our first travel trailer 18 foot Komfort trailer. My daughter and I were cleaning it she turned on the microwave now we have no power to any Outlet. Replaced the GFI no fuses blowen no power to any outlet. Ideas? The outlets are not protected by fuses. The outlets are protected by breakers in the power center.

RE: replacing tires

Use the spare as an outer dual so at least it will be a little easier to monitor.

RE: Electric heaters

There are lots of electric heaters that are over 1500 watt but they are hardwired, not portable. Are you looking for a mounted heater like a baseboard heater?

RE: Best small electric heaters

...for all practical purposes using 117 AC is approx 340 BTU's for each 100 watts consumed. 1500 watts = 5120 BTU's capability, 1000 watts = 3400 BTU's, 750 watts = 2550 BTU's. Just for a quick reference..... True and it is the same for a $500 "Amish Built" heater or a $10 Walmart heater. The heat output and the electrical consumption is identical.

RE: Heating season is coming

...she stumbled into one of those heaters! AND IT WASN'T EVEN PLUGGED IN! All was well until it fell over and landed on her big toe! Yup! Well, that was about 4 weeks ago now. It crushed her toe, disintegrated her bone, and then it decayed because the bone was so old and brittle. Then an infection set it, and for the last 3 weeks, we've been trying to get her to surgery to have her toe removed! (Which ain't going well, because she keeps sabotaging the surgery appointments. Had her all ready for surgery twice now, and she creatively stopped taking her normal medications, so all the chemicals in her body are all screwed up. She doesn't want the surgery. Thus, no anesthesia, no surgery!) And she's happy about that, risking a complete bone infection that could spread through her entire body.... There you go, positive proof that owning a space heater causes limb amputations! :B Hope that isn't offensive, not trying to trivialize what she is going thru.

RE: Standing showers in bunkhouse models.

I doubt there is much demand for a toddler size tub and only big RVs have room for an adult size tub. Use the sink or find a plastic tub that fits the shower stall. Your child is going to spend a lot more time as a larger person than as a small one. Buy the RV that fits your family when larger.

At 275# you aren't going to lift that thing into the receiver.

RE: Trailer Life Article about GCWR...etc.

Still doesn't change the "manufacturer's rating". Only the manufacturer can change the rating. The rating as built stays on the truck forever. Can a vehicle be made more capable? Sure, but you cannot change the manufacturer's rating. Do you understand that 'manufacturer's rating' is possessive? No one but the original manufacturer can change the rating.

RE: XHose for Water Supply

Does the label state "Approved for potable water use"? If not, no. If it does, use it.
