RE: Well, They gone and done it

DW used to groom and show poodles. Haven't been to a barber shop in the last 2o-30- years. .....Does she give you a treat when she's done?.... :B

RE: Hand Sanitizer

The markets are as much to blame for the empty shelf's in the stores. They should have limited the number of the same idem. News "idem"..... The markets and Costco is So. CA have been limiting quantities for several days now. .

RE: You can buy S637 tires here, but install: HAHAHAHA

The OP got the Discount Tire Shop employee who just got hired "away" from Taco Bell. OP sounds like one of (long ago) poster Fast Eagle's kin. BTW - The Chinese can -and do- mfgr *quality* tires (to mfgr's specs). Even have Michelin factories in China...

RE: Jayco TV antenna Web site (reviews) above a *link* - Number one choice "Pingbingding" = good price at Amazon! It's a powered antenna - claim is good for 150 miles! The #2 (non-powered) is considerably less - but can vouch for - works great in urban areas (50+ miles). Also avail at Amazon. :C . .

RE: Best way to bring shine back to fiberglass body.

I ran out of "elbow grease". White Lithium is a good substitute - and it matches lots of fiberglass! .

RE: School me on OTA for Dish

RE: School me on OTA for Dish

Your "Dish" should already get local CBS, ABC, NBC, PBS stations, those are typically located below Dish channels 100. To recieve your local OTA channel directly, you do not need the Dish system, plug in a antenna DIRECTLY to your TV sets ANTENNA/CABLE coax input. Once you have the antenna connected, change TV from your Dish input (HDMI, Component or Composite and select Antenna/OTA/Cable from your TVs menu. Once you on the antenna/cable input you need to do a channel scan. Once scan has completed you now can watch your local OTA channels. Yes, it means you must switch between inputs and yes, you will not have DVR capability but you now get all of the local channels plus the sub channels and it didn't cost anything other than the antenna.. Note: The OP stated it's for his S&B home (not an RV). As "BB TEX" also stated....... An OTA antenna connected directly to your TV is easy! DISH now with locals - but when I had DirecTV - didn't happen often, but during heavy rain (etc.) the sat signal would pixilate. Switch over to OTA for locals worked fine, no interruption of the signal/s. I used a (IMO - "Clear Stream") outdoor antenna (about $60 at Costco) mounted on the eve of the house (about 15 ft high) facing the direction of my locals - which are at least 50 miles away. Antenna looks like a single plastic "figure 8" on a BBQ grill (LOL) - about 18" square. Receives ALL - with great HD picture. *If* DISH has any probs - it's still ready to do its thing!...:C .

RE: Who's the shortsighted one here

Most of the stores I worked at you either parked "Out a ways" or around the side or back. As an Employee I never took "Preferred parking" . Agree! Parking spaces equate to paying customers - *not* paid employees. When I worked at a major retail store (years ago) with limited parking, employees were not "allowed" to park in the parking lot. You found space "curbside" on an adjoining street - which often was a long walk back to the store....which was no big deal.....then. .

RE: Jayco TV antenna

"lishcoli" - suggest you work on combining posts, proof reading !!- and deleting the "repeats". Even easier than solving the OP's antenna problem/s, ROTFL On edit: Yikes! - Had to add "proof reading"....:R !! Good web site though. .

RE: 2005 alfa see ya 5th wheel

Lwiddis...we had no idea the tenant was planning to skip out on us, he got his stuff out, put the slides in and said come get it. he was nowhere to be found and will not return our calls! his deposit was 500 and he didn't get it back Hope you have the $500. deposit "cash in hand" - or converted to same! WHY would a renter "skip out", "nowhere to be found, and will not return our calls" ??...:R *Very* fishy! Renting a/your personal RV is a serious c**p shoot - as evidenced by your post. Owner BEWARE !!..:S .

RE: Black tank release cable

apparently the cable and valve is accessible as you describe it. Why not go on amazon, get a new assy install and be done with it? The OP says, "It's in a really bad spot". So far all the posts deal with lubrication of the cable. Maybe it will help - maybe not......The cable/s sometimes have a bit of slack behind the pull knob (from repeated use), -or- the cable has developed a kink due to sloppy routing (and clamps) by the mfgr. Often it may be MUCH simpler and easier to check the cable!! Disconnect the cable at the valve - and see if the valve will move freely. If it does = cable is the problem. If it does *not* move easily....unfortunately, it's probably time to replace the valve assembly...:( Not expensive - but it can be a real "PITA" if it's in a "bad spot". No need to ask how I know...:W .

RE: Triangle Trailer tires?

So the 2014 5th wheel we have agreed to purchase has Triangle TR656 14ply Load range G tires. They were installed in Sept 2019 with little to no use since then (RV stored for winter). Should I just commit to replacing these before a long distance road trip? Thanks, OJ "They were *installed* ...... etc. Check the *DATE CODE* on the tires !!...:@ *If* it's reasonably close (within a few months) to/of Sept 2019 - and you don't see any obvious sidewall cracking, etc. They're OK. If you're still in doubt, take one wheel & tire to a tire shop you trust (or think you do) - have them dismount the tire. Examine the inside *yourself* along with the shop folks. (I would expect they will try to sell you 4 new ones). If all looks good, then - The answer is *NO* you don't need to replace them...:C If the *DATE CODE* is a "few" years older than 2019, I would be concerned (they may have sat on a tire shop shelf) before a buyer who didn't know enough to check - came along...:( Yes.....that DOES happen - How do I know? They tried, I passed on the outdated tires the shop tried to sell me! Buyer beware! :W

RE: Any Return on Investment?

Putting something in the advertising like: "new tires, brakes and bearings in 2020." Do you think buyers of used trailers would see how enhancing that is? -Speak Since I am a self-proclaimed (just now) advertising guru..... It will break (no pun) down like this: 60 percent will care...:C 30 percent will not...:( 10 percent either won't pay any attention to that info, or don't know what you're talking about...:h Bottom line: Why not include the money spent on upgrades and mechanical work in "for sale" info? (Save receipts!). :@ .

RE: Looking For a Second 5th Wheel

"The Hoff": Looks like 12 replies (this should be #13). 4 - were regarding the A/C you should choose (or agreeing with a previous post) 2 - were posters surprised (or shocked) at the cost of the units. 1 - whichever the DW likes best. So that leaves five (5) suggestions. So, you should be able to make a clear-cut, well informed decision!..:R IMO - Skip the internet forum/s - Do your own research - decide what *YOU* (and, of course the DW) prefer...:S Happy hunting & spending. ~

RE: Homeless people coming to your favorite campground!

“unkempt & disheveled appearance.” Did you look unkempt and disheveled in the ‘60s? Q. - DO you look unkempt and disheveled in 2020....:@ A. - Often before noon! - ROTFLMAO IMO - OP (thread starter) - Get a life (elsewhere) - suggest Newport Dunes (Newport Beach, CA)....*IF* you can afford it..:R ~

RE: getting trapped inside a park

I have never found that driving over the grass hurt either the truck or the trailer. Until you get stuck. Ask me how I know. Dan That's why I have 4x4... Lyle False security times four...:S Had a place in the San Berdo Mtns for several years. Exiting the street at the stop sign before the main highway, was a shaded low spot in the road. In winter, snow would melt in daytime, freeze at night to black ice - last for several hours of "shaded" sun in the AM. "Unfortunate", but regular entertainment: Watching the "can go anywhere", "can handle anything with my 4 x 4" flat-landers come up to the stop sign at normal speed, hit the brakes and slide out into traffic on Hwy 18! Lots of near misses - luckily the main road had good traction for "avoidance" by the cross traffic. Whenever I saw a "suspected" 4 x 4 coming up behind me at speed to that stop sign, I would pull over well in advance, let that driver go first, then watch the show - while I crept up to the stop with my lowly 4 x 2. The "pull-over procedure" also saved many "savvy" drivers from being rear-ended by the sliding 4 x 4's. A few weren't so lucky..:( ~

Should only be one connection between batteries. Good info here: 12 volt side of life "Maybe" the OP didn't relate his "set-up" clearly or correctly! "Maybe" the replies didn't take that into consideration -or- maybe they didn't relate the solution clearly or correctly. The link (with diagrams & info) does both !! Can't beat that with a pogo stick as a "jumper"..:W ~
