RE: Alcohol Detection Systems in All New Vehicles

Alcohol and drugs have destroyed my family slowly but surely. My 18 yr old sister was killed by a drunk driver when I was 13. She was on her way home from her job at Foley's when she was hit head on by a drunk driver. He traveled only a little over 1 mile from the bar before he hit her. My father was a Japanese POW for most of WWII. Needless to say he was a basket case when he returned. He struggled with alcohol and anti depressants my whole life until he passed away at the age of 62 from cirrhosis of the liver. One older brother drank himself to death at the age of 46. Died of liver cancer. My younger brother and another older brother pretty much do nothing but sit in front of the TV drinking beer, whiskey, smoking pot and no telling what else all day. Both their wives left them years ago. Their homes are falling down around them. The younger brother has had at least 2 DWIs that I know of. He had to have a breathalyzer installed in his car so he drove his truck. His license was suspended but that didn't stop him. It's a free country you know. They are both unemployed as well as unemployable. They stopped trying to hold down jobs because it interfered with their drinking. I don't know why I'm sharing this. I think because most people don't see the total affect of alcohol and drug abuse unless you live it. I don't drink because of this. My family has been struck down by 'The A Gene' as I call it. I preach to my children they were born with the A gene. Look at your uncle's. This is what the A gene will do to you if you're not careful.

RE: Does RV.net have a policy forbidding the discussion of EVs?

"The number of RVers towing small trailers that are switching to electric vehicles as a tow vehicle is growing REALLY FAST and yet this board is not attracting any of them. Nor is there a specific forum area for them. I would think that it would be a priority of an RV forum sponsored by an RV retailer to attract this new generation of RVers." I've seen your call for an EV subforum and I agree it would be a step in the right direction. It wouldn't hurt. However, that may be easier said than done. It may be a tedious task with this old engine they use to maintain this forum. I don't know. Even then, it would take time for it to be found and populated by new EV enthusiasts, if ever. As you said, their are plenty of other places for EV RV'ers to get their fix. I doubt the EV subforum would ever become the knowledge repository this forum once was, and still is. RV.net lost a treasure trove of invaluable information when their database crashed, or whatever happened. There is a chronological hole when using the search engine.

RE: Does RV.net have a policy forbidding the discussion of EVs?

Embracing new technologies isn't a requirement to keep this forum alive and healthy. Retaining the knowledge base is. A few bad apples spewing their negative comments will eventually run them off.

From reading a few of those I see they turn into off-topic insult contests.That pretty much describes this forum in general as of late. It has become a toxic environment

RE: Forever warranty

Here Are Some Reviews. Scroll down and read newest first. There is a review mentioning the Forever Warranty. Read and understand the contract before you sign. I haven't heard anything about the Houston locations as I live within a reasonable proximity to the Texas City location. I have heard nothing but bad experiences for them. I drive by there often but never stopped.

RE: Trailer brakes not working

The controller only applies power to the brakes by pressing the brake pedal when the truck is moving. The manual slide always applies power when used. The reason being is you don't want/need current flowing through your trailer brake coils while sitting at a long red light with your foot on the brake. Tow it around the block to verify the controller is working properly when pressing the brake pedal.

RE: Safety: Microwave Fire!

We use brown paper towels made from recycled paper products in the break room at work. There is a large sign in bold letters on the paper towel dispenser saying "Do Not Use In Microwave. Fire Hazard". Our theory is they do not separate staples and other small medal items while recycling.

RE: This net is dying!

We're talking iCloud without knowing if you even use it. Follow These Instructions to see if you even have your iCloud turned on. If it is, Click Here and scroll down to the section "On your Mac or PC". Follow those instructions on your PC to see if you can download pics from your iCloud to your PC. Again, I'm iIgnorant. I'm just reading stuff trying to determine why you can't use the RV.net photo posting app. For me it quite easy.

RE: This net is dying!

She plugs her iPhone into her HP laptop and a Photos app pops up. It connects and she transfers pics from her phone to her pc. The Photos app is part of Win10. It does say Photos will not transfer from the iCloud * Does this mean that IMGUR does not use the icloud?This means the Photos app on her laptop can't transfer photos from her iCloud account. It only transfers photos that are stored on her iPhone,

RE: This net is dying!

You don't need an IMGUR account to use the RV.net image posting app. 1492 took care of that for us.

RE: This net is dying!

Sorry CD, my instructions were to post a pic to RV.net directly from an iPhone. I believe my wife uses iTunes to move her pics from her iPhone to her Win10 laptop but not sure. I'll ask her when she gets home. I avoid Apple products. The rest of my family embraces them.

RE: This net is dying!

Let's see if I can explain how to post pics using an iPhone: Clicks Here You should see this: https://i.imgur.com/272ChQil.jpg Click "Or Select" You should see this: https://i.imgur.com/9xhK79dl.jpg Click "Photo Library" Now you should see your pics: https://i.imgur.com/ceGMfadl.jpg Select the pic you want to post and click Done at the lower right You should see this: https://i.imgur.com/1SLaUonl.jpg This one can take some time. Wait until you see this: https://i.imgur.com/T0ZKAWOl.jpg Highlight the displayed code in the box and copy it. Then go to the post you want to place it in and paste it: https://i.imgur.com/dGCWdt4l.jpg I hope this helps someone. I had to borrow my wife's iCrack to do this. I'm Android guy as well.

RE: Travel Trailer electrical, - Inverter placement/hookup

The cheapest way is to plug your shore power cord into the inverter using a $6 Adapter and turn off/disconnect the converter and microwave. The microwave draws a little current so I turn it off as well when using my 500W inverter. Have the fridge and water heater on propane if using them. I also have a 100W inverter that plugs into the cigarette plug above the TV. That plug is only good for 8 amps. I use it for watching TV and charging our electronics. That's an isolated circuit so I don't need to worry about the converter.
