RE: Stoped routine

what about fueling and getting the heck out of the pumps and not use the restroom, wash your hands, wonder the sales area looking for snacks, order a sub, get a drink, pick up the chips from the sales area, get in line to pay ....... all while someone else waits to use the pump. I do my checks while the truck is filling with fuel.. I don't go into the store to buy anything or use the facilities after the fuel stops filling the tank. I want out of there as soon as possible! I have seen these types of folks however, and yes, that is annoying... Mitch There in lays my point, people do it.

RE: Blue Beacon Truck Wash

As sidecar flip said, streaking beacon is their name, they will use the acid to remove bugs or heavy dirt, and it will etch your paint. Could always tell trucks washed there a lot as the paint was dull. They use the brightener on aluminum wheels & tanks not paint although there maybe over spray. I was a class 8 owner/operator and RV'er. As he said just ask for no acid and pick a time when there is not a lineup to wash, they do a decent job.

RE: Travel Trailer vs. Motorhome (my situation)

If you're going to move often, get a motorhome. If you're going to be at one place for extended periods, get a fifth wheel. Whats the difference on how often you move? You setup & take down with either to move. Setup times very similar, I have a buddy in a class A. We set up in about the same time, we both have auto level. Once setup we end up in my 5W with more room and seating. His advantage is he can make a sandwich w/o stopping. I prefer the short break.

RE: Buying out of state

Smog compliance (factory specs) should be the same for all 50 states. If you take delivery in CA - you *WILL* pay approx 10% in sales tax. Also (delivery in CA) you will most likely have to pay CA registration = big bucks. Take delivery out of state - or purchase in a state with no -or low- sales tax. Advice: Revise your purchase plans !!..:R BTW - "break in period" is no different for a Class C -vs- your car or pickup, or your personal preference. Look at the chassis/eng mfgr's handbook. . CA has stricter emissions laws than most other states. Just like all the warnings "this product is known to cause cancer in CA." Sure glad I don't live in CA, too many things I use would give me cancer if I did live there.

RE: How long to return to camping after open heart surgery

I think that your cardiologist is the best source for an answer to that question and not folks on an RV forum. Everyone recovers differently, has different procedures and potential complications. So you won't get your answer here. You will from your doctors, so ask them. I have had 3 heart procedures in the last 4 years, none of them bypass. My recovery was quick. But that was me. Chuck This and how YOU feel, and only you know how your doing. I was back in a class 8 6 months after open heart.

RE: Running your propane Refrigerators while fueling?

you might be struck by lightning while refueling too. How many have ever seen a hose leak?? Been driving 50 years and that's a 1st for me.

RE: A poll: What does 2 blinks of the left signal mean to you?

I do this except for the right signal. I just pull to the right but maintain my speed if I think it is safe for them to pass so they can see past me. If I can't see far enough ahead then I stay out in my lane. +1 move right when you think it's clear and let them make their move.

RE: Roadside Assistance Question

Coach Net for years. Fast response, call backs to see if road service arrived, couple times sing and go couple other they had already been paid when the arrived.

RE: Slides out / level

Don't put slides out or otherwise look like your camping as that helps to get overnight stops banned. Correct answer. I worked loss prevention at a Wally for 5 years. When the camper came in and setup with lawn chairs etc, the manager had me ask that they leave. Walmart's a business not a camp ground and they allow one night to keep sleepy drivers off the road. If your going to set up camp, find a camp ground.

RE: Dish Tail gater walk away ?

two year now and no problem but I don't camp in questionable areas. I worked 25 years LE in a tourist area and investigated one theft in the 25 years. Most campers leave things in their sites as the investigate the area. Introduce your self to your neighbors, they will watch for you.

RE: Roadside Assistance Question

Coach Net, best service. I have used them 3 times and every time they where there in a reasonable time. One time I was told they had been paid before the truck arrived.

RE: Replacement AC fan motor very weak.

Ceiling fans run both direction via a switch. I would think swapping wires would make the motor run the opposite direction just like the fan.

Because nice folks went out of their way to suggest the route vs the Interstate and I thought it proper to report back to them and future travelers how it went. Is there a problem doing that? Nope just couuldn't make a connection, glad it worked out for you.

RE: Suburban oven will not lite

I think most RVers use the stove for storage! Not,it's for cookies, cakes, sticky buns, pizza, home made brad & rolls. You get the idea, wife loves cooking & baking.

RE: Magnetic Cam Locks???

I replaced all 6 cam locks with keyed alike for $21. I wouldn't want that odd magnetic key in my pocket. I had a cellphone that had a magnet in the speaker that attracted metal particles in my pocket from my metal working. Don't get it near your debit/credit cards either, kills the strip on the back.

RE: Magnetic Cam Locks???

Spray the existing locks with penetrating oil. Wipe them clean, then "fill" them with Vaseline. Never use oil it attracts dirt! Graphite Powdered Lock lubricant available at Lowe's, Home Depot, Walmart, & most auto parts stores. Use the right product for the job, only a few dollars.
