RE: finding laundromats?

There's an app for that... White and Yellow Pages by Avantar LLC You just do a search for laundromats and all the ones near you will show up. We usually prefer the ones right at the CG. Usually cheaper and you don't have to feel so alienated.

What's your favorite app?

Mine is Apple’s ‘Remote’. :) Love it!! We have had our music collection in iTunes for a few years now and have a netbook hooked up to our ‘whole house’ stereo. We’ve got an ir remote for the receiver which meant we had to go into the room with the stereo for the volume, and had to go stand in front of the computer to change what was playing. With this Remote app using wifi we can change what’s playing and the volume from anywhere in the house. This works in the RV too when we bring our netbook and hook it up to the stereo in there. What’s your favorite app and how does it make your life better?

RE: 6 people killed in Texas campsite attack

I've seen this incident posted on a number of forums. What bugs me is the OPs post in incorrectly as occurring in a campground, as if to panic all us that use campgrounds. They all failed to read the news correctly, that it happened at at private residence, NOT a public or private campground.:M I wish people would read stuff like this thoroughly, before starting a post about it.I agree with your thought... But...the OP used the exact wording of the FOX News headline. Blame FOX.

RE: The 1959 Ford Thames campervan restoration begins.

Good stuff! Just curious... is the roof insulated? I probably missed that part.I'll answer since I did notice that... Yes - the roof is made (from bottom to top) with OSB boards, vapor barrier, insulation panels, then the steel. Hey Kev - great work as usual! Thanks much for sharing your projects with us. :)

RE: remember when

It's not the gears or the tranny or the engine. It's power management. In the old days when you stomped on the right peddle it snapped the butterfly open......NOW!!! Now days when you stomp on the right peddle a signal goes to the puter which says, Oh I can't open too fast or the tires will lose traction and that would be bad. X2 too funny explanation but true. I miss that sound of my 4 barrel opening up and screaming when 'I' told it to.I'm there. Even pulling the trailer. :C

RE: black tank roof

I have had these since I bought the RV and never had a problem. http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/312THR2W5GL.jpg Same here. Those Cyclone vent caps are supposed to draw the fumes from the tank but it is impossible. The waste tank is a closed system, for fumes to be drawn from the tank it would create a vacuum and that isn't going to happen. The Cyclone is a tax on gullibility. I have the Cyclone and it works. I had smells in the RV when driving down the road. After installing the new vents the oders went away. The closed system wouldn't need a vent if there were no gases created. The cyclone doesn't suck the gases out, it just directs them away.I had to replace the original cap that was like Bobbo's because it was cracked. Got a Cyclone - I don't know if it works better than the original - all I know is it looks really cool on my RV. And... I can tell which way the wind is blowing.... :C

RE: The worst interstate list

tomkaren13 Sorry to disappoint you BUT I-86 goes no where within 50 miles of Gowanda NY. There WAS a section of I-86 between Olean and Salamanca that was bad but was resurfaced this summer.Unless they've resurfaced pretty much the whole thing we won't go on it. We would rather pay the tolls on I-90 than go on 86.

RE: Salt and salt damage on new RV's

So, travelling in the Winter is not to be done either? I have a feeling that there are a large percentage of RV users that never encounter true Winter conditions. Further, there are a large number that can't/won't get down on the deck and spray water underneath their rig, no matter what the season. I'd also bet that an occasional trip on a salted highway isn't going to be doom for their RV. If a user is concerned about salt and frame rust and can't/won't wash the underside, you can get it done at a truck wash or DIY at a carwash with a wand. Any "damage" done to an RV by passing on a salted highway is overstated in this post, IMO.We definitely don't travel in winter. We are (hopefully) retiring soon and would like to go south for some of the winter, but will have to be very careful about the road conditions - never will we drive our rig through salt. We know what that stuff does and spraying with water can't get it out of the nooks and crannies. :E

RE: Screen mirroring

I've mirrored our Samsung tablet to our TV using a Roku player. That was wireless and no delay either for the audio or video.

RE: 5 things you love most and 5 things you love the least.

Love most... Small footprint Lots of jalousie windows Twin beds that are always beds All the comforts of home (except D/W, W/D) Drags easily Love least... Small bathroom Little kitchen counter space Smallish water tanks (32 gallons) Only room for 2 6 volt batteries in the battery compartment Worry about damage - when they mow & trim near us And - I know that some of the things I love least are a result of the thing I love most. ;)

RE: Looking for the perfect RV trip planner

Since 2002 We are RVing every summer for 4-5 months ,each time to a different to us destinatons. We love hiking,waterfalls,natural hot springs and special events. In the winter I would search mark on the map places I wanted to explore (using STREET & TRIPS) and then combinitng the dots with scenic by ways. It works well but it is a lot of work. My question: is there a RV multi stop planner that will do the work? I will enter the Start point and the last stop,add points of interests like waterfalls,scenic routes,hot springs and the planner will do the rest?My question to you... Do you save your old Streets & Trips map files and would you be willing to share them? It sounds like you like the same places and activities that we do. :)

RE: Cost of brake job

Is there a brake tutorial anywhere on this forum that anyone can point me to? Not sure as to the correct procedure of maintaining them. Any information will be greatly appreciated. Thanks Tator Tot " Never complain about getting old, a lot of people are denied that privilege" See here: LINK

RE: Cost of brake job

We just did it on our trailer with 10 inch brakes. We got the brake assemblies from eTrailer for $143. Then we had the drums turned for $100. 2 sets of new bearings and new seals about $85. So, we're up to $328.00 and we did the labor ourselves. Well all new bearings, seems like a bit of over kill, but peace of mind is priceless. X2 for sure on the backing plates, and X100 on turning the drums, that is likely the biggest miss most have on a DIY brake job! Makes all the difference in the world.We only did half (one side) new bearings... We did the other side a few years ago and this year we saw some scored rollers so replaced them.

RE: 1960 Montgomery Ward Tent Camper

That is so cool - glad it was stored and then saved! Very nice presentation of your project. :) Note... This will probably be one of the rare times nobody will come in and say you need a bigger truck. ;)

RE: Step one. Bought the van.

Great job on your rust repairs! We're planning to go to the Udvar-Hazy Center next spring - looks like it will be even better than the downtown museum. Thanks for the pics. :)

RE: Opinions on heat strip for A/C - UPDATED with Results

OP here... Just wanted to let everyone know how the strip worked out in this past camping season. Our 2 big trips were in early May and early October (just got back). Our spring trip was in the mountains off the Blue Ridge Parkway, and our fall trip was in the north central mountains of PA. There were lots of night temps in the 40s and a couple of nights in the upper 30s. The strip worked perfectly!! Never turned on the furnace once. We did use our Vornado space heater during the day for quiet heat, but every night we used the A/C heat strip alone and it did the job - kept it at 71 degrees. I think a big reason it worked so well for us is we have a small camper - and the ceiling is low. So that's it - very happy we did it! :)

RE: Check your holding tanks

We find lots of dump stations that are sloping in the wrong direction. When we pull up we check the level, and if it isn't we put a leveler block under a wheel. We also clean off all dishes and pans with paper towels before they go in the sink.
