RE: Medicare ads!!!!!

Can anyone tell me why we are suffering thru these unending Medicare advantage ads? Because people are too dumb to go to Medicare.gov and get price comparison without interference from the companies running deceptive ads. I use the zero payment Medicare Advantage because I don't want to pay hundreds of dollars monthly and I do realize that if everything goes bad I might pay a bit more out of pocket. In those years years where there are no extraordinary medical expenses, I am ahead. So far I am way ahead of the game. I'm doing the same thing. The Zero plan does have a max out of pocket, so hopefully our world won't come to an end. If I bought every insurance I'd been broke long ago. Brian

RE: What is a good camp stove to buy now days?

For a small portable, the lightweight butane can't be beat. It is offered by several makers. Measures about 10" X10" X 3" thick. Has it's own spark ignighter and cost $20 - $25. The brands are virtually all the same, I think Coleman even has their name on one. I love mine! Brian

RE: Rubber Roof

I used Henry's Trop I Cool on mine with good results. I did the entire roof. This can be purchased or ordered from Home Depot. I'm not sure if the product you used was compatible with your roof. You'll have to wait till spring now. Brian

RE: 6 gal electric hot water heater upgrade

Have a 18 ft Jayco and hot water heater went out. Wanting to see if anyone has ever replaced the original with a smaller electric one. Don’t really like the use of propane for anything inside. If you know you're always going to have electricity why not. I assume you mean a conventional 6 gallon electric heater. It is certainly cheaper than an RV water heater. A lot of misinformation in this thread. An RV water heater on electric does not take hours to recover, it takes 1 hour (1400 watt element). A conventional residential heater takes less than an hour (1650 watts). An add in element for an RV heater is an option but will take more than 2 hours or so to recover (675 watts), and if its a Suburban removing the anode rod to install one is not a good idea. What GDS said is SPOT on. I was going to replace mine with the 6 gallon electric. You have to make sure you have the space needed to do this. With the water lines coming out of the top I didn't have enough space to make it happen. Make sure you do the measuring. Brian

RE: Dark interiors

We looked at new RVs a year ago and did not like any of the color schemes at all. The were all the same. It made it easy for us to like what we have. Brian

RE: Dinette Cushions

My wife did ours. We bought "quality" foam and she made new zipper covers with upolstrey fabric of our choice. One thing to keep in mind is don't get foam that is too thick as you won't have the clearance between the top of your legs and the bottom of the table. Gives you the chance to truly make your RV to your personal taste! Brian

RE: '05 Salem Hot Water Leak

You have to be able to some how get to it. If you have to change it out you'll need to disconnect water and gas lines from it for removal. Keep looking, Brian

RE: removing antenna ??

Yes, I threw mine away when I re-sealed the roof. I removed it, screwed down a tin patch, covered with eternabond and recoated the roof with Henry's Trop i Cool. This is also what I did with the roof top luggage rack years back. I use one of the indoor antenas you can buy at a discount store which works well with local channels. I also am not concerned with getting good TV reception! Brian

RE: What is going on with this roof?

I think all of your ideas are on track. Clean and scrape the seams and apply eternabond tape to them. On mine I also ran eternabond tape around my roof vents. Dicore self leveling works good too, and around plumbing vents. After cleaning the roof, if it still looks iffy I would consider coating the entire roof with a product suitable for aluminum and going over the eternabond tape and dicor. When I did mine I also removed the uneeded stuff like the luggage rack and TV antenae. Once the roof is done then you can go on to the rest. Brian

RE: Access to overhead bunk

Our C came without a ladder. I am tall and I just step on the dinette seat and slide in. My grand daughters 3 and 5 also have no problem getting up there, which is a problem!! It is nice though not having the ladder to stow. Brian

RE: Best Fuel Preservative for Pure Gas ???

Seafoam for me, and I always buy 91 octane ethanol free gas for my small engines. X2 for me, Shell 91 and 1 oz seafoam per gallon, no more small engine problem's. This is the way to go. And I use Seafoam or stabil to neutralize any moisture or condensation my gas can may aquire. I never drain or run dry any of my small engines. Brian

RE: Open container laws?

You can contest the ticket in any state. It only takes a $4,000 dollar attorney to get to the answer. Brian

RE: Flip Phone

Total is Verizon, you can buy the phone cards at Walmart. Great service on the cheap. They may still sell the flip, but if it is less than 4G they most likely will loose sevice in the fall of 2020. Brian

RE: Stay off the ice! 3 Trucks and TT go through ice into lake.

I'm ice fishing for fun and exercise. I walk out only even in Jan. and Feb. with my sled of gear. They keep making fish houses bigger and heavier while many winters run warm. If you need all the amenities...just stay home. Brian

RE: Quick question about oil changes

I only drive ours about 1,000 miles a year. I do a once a year oil change. Ours sits covered for 6 months at a time so it isn't started during that period. I use seafoam for storage in both the engine and gen. No problems in 9 years with this one. Brian

RE: Source for EZ Ramp Levelers

I bought a set from Amazon a couple years ago for my son. I have used these lego blocks over 10 years and haven't ever broke one. Brian

RE: Midsize car for towing

I would get a car that has a tow rating of 1,000 pounda or more. Why pust the envelope and question if it can or can't. I wouldn't be comfortable always looking at the guages and wondering if I'm going to have a problem. Just don't go there for piece of mind. Brian

RE: roof coating

I like "Henry Tropi-Cool" I ordered it through Home Depot. It applies really nice. NO primer, wash roof before application. If your roof is wearing down showing lots of Black Spots, it is time for a roof coating. My original roof was 26 years old. I used a 1/2" nap roller and one coat did the trick. Brian

RE: Winterization issues

If you are confused at this point, I would re-fill with water and see whats going on. That is basically free. Brian

RE: Cover Advice

Most have the upper sidewall vents in the cover. Ours does and the wind does blow through them well enough to dry if the temp. or sun get warm enough.
