RE: Tangled in cords

I've been using these for years for our computers and everything else that has a wire... http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41PYrbCo62L.jpg width=200 I just write on it what it is for. One time I plugged my pressure pro wire into the Garmin. Don't know if that's what killed it, but now I've even got them flagged. Luckily things are getting more standardized so in the camper we just have one charging unit and one wire that does our cell phones and our Kindles. The Notebook and the tablet have their special chargers and are flagged and kept in Ziplocs.

RE: Safety Gas Cans

The EPA "carb" cans were NEVER designed to be "safe" for the USER. They were designed to "save the world" of carbon fuel vapors. In reality they are far more dangerous for the user AND the world since no matter how careful you are you ALWAYS end up spilling fuel all over the item you are attempting to fill.. Causing a greater risk of fire, wasted money in fuel and not to mention MORE fuel vapors ending up in the air.. Those new can manufacturers should be mandated to automatically give you lifetime hazmat cleanup kits.. The mods in the video are dead on and make the can MORE environmentally friendly by not spilling fuel each time you attempt to use it. I personally have adapted older style spare spouts I had laying around and added replacement closeable air vents to mine.. Now they work better and are no longer a hazard to me and the environment.This has been my experience also! :M Warning to those who want to do this mod... Read the comments after the video and you will see that the rubber valve stems do fail because they aren't meant for use with gas.

RE: Towing above 65

We pretty much go the speed limit or a couple mph above. With our rig we can fly - and no worries since our trailer tires are rated to 99 mph. :B

RE: How far to travel with only 2 weeks vacation time/year

We have to do the 2 week thing also... Looks like the longest 2 week trip we've taken was 1500 miles. Back when we had the kids with us the longest was 800 miles. And next month our plans are for a 1300 mile trip. We're waiting till retirement to go out west. We did that back in '77 for our honeymoon camping trip so we know about long driving days. :)

RE: Finally Getting Started: New Garage With RV Bay

{snip} I haven't decided on a finish yet. If I stain it, it will be a light colored stain. I'm also considering just a clear finish. We'll have a good supply of scrap pieces to experiment with. After they finish this ceiling, they will hang sheetrock on the ceilings in the garage, then the remaining fiberglass insulation will be installed. :):)I've been really enjoying this thread and just popped in to see what you're up to now... In case you haven't started the finish on your ceiling... We put in a similar tongue and groove ceiling a few years ago and used Minwax Polyshades to finish it - does the staining and varnish all in one step. Don't remember what color we used - it was light and it turned out beautiful... Maybe Golden Oak. Anyway - thanks for sharing your project!

RE: 5 things we don't love about our RV

Had to really think about this one... Before we bought this trailer I had made a layout drawing of what we wanted. It was based on my aunt and uncle's Airstream, including all our wants and needs, but shorter. We found the perfect one. :) A lot of the things that others found lacking obviously apply to ours - like a small bathroom! But we knew when we planned this out that there would be compromises, so I can't complain about the bathroom - if it was bigger, the trailer would have to be longer. Could only come up with 2 things we don't love: 1. Smallish holding tanks (32 gallons each) 2. Smallish fridge (and freezer)

RE: Anyone been turned away from campground for older rig?

I wish they had this rule at the RV Storage where I keep my TT. Some of those units that people are paying good money to rent a space for are beat all to hell, faded, old relics! About 65% of the units are not road worthy!Actually that is a problem for storage operators of people paying money for a month and abandoning the unit. The storage operators have to go through a process to get rid of them.This speaks to me as our son stores our old '74 Scotty trailer that we used all the kids' growing up years. We got a "new" trailer and he wanted to keep the old one. Tried to talk him out of it as it needs upkeep. And as he is a young guy building his career it has sat there at the storage facility for... 8 years. But, the good news for all the storage folks out there - he pays the bill every month. All these years - all these months... And back to the OP's question... We ran into the 10 year rule once... My mouth dropped open when I saw that and when they looked outside they grinned and said - not a problem. We are good to go. :B

RE: Taking a Poll, Do you Plug in or Not?

Plugged in 24/7, 12 months a year unless driving or dry camping.Same here.

RE: Niagara Falls Current Recommendations

We went to the Falls (Canadian side) to camp every year when the kids were still with us. We camped at a few different CGs, but never on Lundy's Lane. Didn't even want to drive down that road with the kids. The last CG we stayed at was King Waldorf's - nice sites and easy access to the Falls. Never had any problems with bad guys in all our years of going.

RE: Expired Propane Tanks

Yes - just call around to check prices of certification. As you can imagine - we have had to have our tanks updated with the new valves - and - recertified a couple of times. They still look like new as they are protected from the weather - would never replace them as long as they are in good shape. Good luck...

RE: Where do you park/store your RV when not camping?

In our barn - that is even older than our truck or our trailer - built in 1895.

RE: Peppermint Oil Observation

No one has mention those electronic devices that you plug in the wall, has anyone used these and did they work to keep the mice out?Well... I can tell you they don't work for bats. :R

RE: tire pressure on tow vehicle

Maximum tire pressure makes for a rougher ride. If I was you I would look in your owner's manual to find the correct pressure.

RE: to toad or not how about you?

I didn't see where anyone mentioned pets. We keep dreaming of a B or C- and going without a toad. But - we have 2 camping cats and we are sightseers. When we went to Boston we had to leave our truck in a large open parking lot for hours when we took public transportation into the city. Same thing when we did Philly and NYC. Even when we drive our truck to the non-city sights we often leave it alone in the sun for hours. Can't leave our cats in such a situation. That's why we couldn't do it. :(

RE: Trip report: Southern Africa

Steve - thanks so much for going through the effort to share with us! Your trip reports are really fantastic. This one is no exception!

RE: Opinions on the Winnebago View/Itasca Navion?

Good... I love the small size and the interiors. Bad... Too big to take one around to see the sights, but too small to drag a toad. Ugly... Have you ever been behind one on the road? Ewww.

RE: Great day to work in the Minnie 2201DS!

Great work - and thanks for sharing the pics! Does the new table configuration mean you can't make the dinette into a bed?

RE: Reserve America: a minor rant.

It isn't a question of not being familiar with it, I've used it before, it just doesn't work nearly as well as their previous format.This is the crux of the matter. We had a fine reservation system already here in PA. Sorry to hear they changed to Reserve America. :( I just tried to make reservations at our favorite park and it wouldn't let me - didn't tell me what was wrong - just that there were zero sites that met my criteria. Maybe it's not working quite right yet...

RE: Temps

Where's the warmth today?Not here either. But I have to say it is practically tropical compared to this past Monday morning. Here's a visual of the temps when the windshield washer fluid (called deicer) froze solid in our truck's reservoir at 20 below: http://i.imgur.com/2Nh3vZ5l.jpg
