RE: Dura Shield

In communication with Wayne at uglyshield this morning. Looks like we will do a road trip to Ft Myers if we can find a place to stay close to his business. Not cheap to get the stuff removed, but very difficult and worth the $$$ if you have a hard time moving around. We'll see how it goes and let you guys know the results

RE: Dura Shield

Thanks purple, that is exactly the info and service I am looking for. Perhaps I'll be making a trip to Ft Myers if their prices are right

Dura Shield

Anyone have problem this stuff looking like mildew is growing under it? Seems it started out as tiny dark spots under the film and it has progressively gotten worse until it is just a nasty mess. Now it is under the film on the mid-entry door at the door latch/locks. Very hard to remove the film and the remaining adhesive still has the black "mildew" on.

RE: Has anyone seen this Monolith?

Confederate monument hidden inside and the protesters around the country haven't found it yet.

RE: jenny ridge venue rv park

I am sure that you know the Swamp is not accessible anywhere just by driving up to the edge. If you are actually want the swamp experience, try Stephen Foster State Park. Canoe rental, boat rental and (sometimes) boat tours. No sewer, but dump stations. We have stayed there several times over the years. I turned 40 YOA in the swamp many years ago as we paddled from Kingfisher Landing to Stephen Foster across that edge of it. Took 3 days but a lot of fun

RE: How to Eternabond around pipes?

The fabric backed Ebond is much easier to deal with when covering curves than the plastic backed. BUT, you have to paint the UV resistent paint on it.

RE: EternaBond vs Kohree RV Seal Repair Tape

If I were depending on a product that will protect me from further trouble and potential structural damage to my coach, I would go with Ebond. I know from experience this is a good product and does what it is supposed to do. That few bucks you save won't amount to squat when you have to repair water damage

RE: Franklin NC to Pigeon Forge TN

If I'm not mistaken, 18 wheelers travel this route. Just saying Commercial vehicles are not allowed thru the Park unless they are specifically permitted. There is some steep areas going up to the Tennessee line and a couple of switchbacks. I would be more concerned coming down into Tennessee from the gap. They have worked on the road trying to make it better, but it is still narrow and very steep for a while. Couple of tunnels, but nothing to worry about. The steep grades and narrow lanes would be a major concern. If you are worried, take 74 at Sylva/Dillsboro over to I-40 and head west to Kodak and come in from the north to Pigeon Forge. That route is longer and is pretty danged hairy when you get into the gorge with the trucks riding your bumper and still there are the curves. Personally, I would do the route thru the Park

RE: Rapid City, SD area RV park

Drive a bit further west and stay in the city park in Spearfish. The creek comes out of the canyon there and there is a 'historical' fish hatchery right beside it. FHU and beautiful place

RE: Newmar Gas and Diesel Opinions

We have the 2016 Canyon Star 3911 (handicap) with the wheelchair lift and handicap features. This is the first gas coach we have had. The quality of the Newmar seems to be better than any of the three previous diesel coaches we have owned (Coachmen, Itasca and Damon) The Itasca and Damon were on the Freightliner chassis and I have a lot of respect for the Freightliner chassis. Quality of the Damon was sorely lacking and the attention to detail of the actual coach looked good but that was about it. Ideally this Canyon Star Newmar would be built on a Freightliner chassis. Of course this is not possible, but in my ideal world that would be the case. I expect this will be the last coach we ever own, but if we are allowed a few more years then the Ventana in the handicap model will be our next choice.

RE: Looking for a place

Not quite in the Smokies, but there is a great place just inside Georgia in Hiawassee. Right on a river and beautiful park. River Bend Campground. Easy in and out. Lots to see and do in the area.

RE: Coachmen Santara Capacities

You should not have a gas tank for your generator if this is a diesel coach. The generator is likely diesel as well (hopefully) and draws front the main diesel tank. If not, the generator is likely going to be propane. Actually not Bill. The first MH we had was a DP with a gasoline generator. Coachman Santara no slides

RE: Rechargeable Spot Light

A word of caution. Spotlighting deer not a good thing to do in some areas. Poachers and and horn hunters in some areas use this technique to find and kill trophy (and meat) deer. We have them in our area, riding backroads and around large fields spotting and killing deer. State has wildlife officers out trying to stop this but they have huge areas (around our part of the state) to patrol and enforce. There are laws here that prohibit even spotlighting. They are defined as harassing wild life and some judges take a dim view of this. I don't know the rules in other states, but not a good idea here

RE: Cell phone signal Booster ?

Well I don’t have an instrument, but if you have good signal, but response is slow, that is lack of band with. It is basically too many users for the cell towers available band width. We just came from a situation like that in the Columbia Gorge. Decent signal strength, but constantly timing out, had to use either early in the morning or late in the evening. First, OP mentions very little signal, that is not a "bandwidth" problem. Second, speed of Internet is highly dependent on SIGNAL STRENGTH. Both cellphones and Wifi do something called "auto negotiation" for speed. The connection speed varies with the SIGNAL STRENGTH, less signal and the SLOWER the connection goes, more signal strength and the faster your connection goes. To get the max speed you NEED the max amount of SIGNAL you can get. One or Two bars of signal basically brings your Internet to a crawl or even dead stop. Op is trying to find the best Cell signal booster to help stabilize their Internet speed. It may or may not help, just depends on a lot of factors like terrain, what is between them and cell tower. Cellphones work on "line of sight" signal propagation, a hill, building, trees in between can easily block the signals. Most boosters will use an outdoor antenna which you need to place high enough to capture the most signal as possible.. Then there will be an indoor antenna which the cellphone will use.. Then you have the booster in between the antennas.. Certain amount of distance needs to be in between the booster antennas. Boosters are not a fix all type of thing, they also amplify any RF noise that may be around you also swamping the cell signal you are trying to boost. This is much different from a "bandwidth" problem where there is too many people trying to use the same service from the same cell tower.

RE: Coachmen Santara, '94. 50 amps or 30 amps ?

I forget the year, maybe 96 or 95 (no slides) but we had a diesel Santara that was 50 amp. bought it used from a dealer, John Bleakly in Douglasville, Ga. Biggest Wanderlodge dealer in the nation. Had tons of fun in that old coach, but it wouldn't pull a greased string from a cat's backside but it was fun. All that is gone now, John and Wanderlodge and youth Sorry guys, just an old man reminiscing.

RE: Yellowstone vs Custer State Park

When we worked there, the Custer herd was approximately 1200 head.

RE: Easiest route from Boise, ID to Hungry Horse, MT

US 12 runs thru the mountains and appears to be the most direct. Most if it is along the river, but while the steep grades are few, the curves are many.
