RE: Adding outdoor lights to my RVs

Battery powered motion detector is what you need. I have one on the side near the door and one under the nose to use coming in after dark. Lights turn off when I go away, about $20 at HD or Lowes.

RE: Camping Lights

Another easy way to get light where you need it. HD or Lowe's have battery powered motion detector lights, two lights that will adjust for direction, about $25. I have one on front under overhang and one a couple feet from door. They mount with DB tape, works very well to see where you are walking.

RE: Insuring your household while full time RVing

(I’ve advised them that the RV will be my physical address) You may be in the RV, but its not your "physical" legal address. You will need an address for legal reasons,ie., Auto regs, IRS, insurance, banking,voting etc. Look into a mail forwarding service that has the ability to be your legal address, such as Escapees mail service.

RE: Terrible Trucks

Another version... In 1996 when we retired, we bought the last truck we would need.. 1996 Freightliner FL-60 extended cab with hauler flatbed. Truck was $53,000. Now, 23 years later, still driving same truck, pulling 38'HH, FULL TIME. Truck still runs good, looks good, few less bells and such on new trucks but been paid for 21 years. Back story, back in the day, we tried two pickups and a UD Nissan until the heavy trailers took its toll. YMMV Jim

RE: Front steer tire blowout analysis 2

In 2010, driving south on 59 from Livingston, TX, about 20 miles from Livingston, left front exploded. Freightliner MDT pulling 38' HH. Truck immediately entered north bound lane (no traffic), wheel dug in, no tire left. Kept foot on fuel pedal and slowly pulled back in proper lane. Slowed down and made it to shoulder, except for tire, bent rim, headlight bucket missing, left bumper end dangling all was well. In posting this, I am somewhat in disagreement with parts of the above advise. There was immediate movement to the left, steering was at least 40deg to the right, but no way was it in control. Wife was behind in car and when all was stopped, she said, "what in the world were you doing". Felt lucky Jim

RE: Need new water heater question

Don't really understand what you are asking... water heater comes with both electric and propane systems included. Use your existing electric hookup, the included 12v will take care of the propane.

RE: Wireless Fridge Thermometer - Are they accurate?

Been using Ambient Weather WS-10 Wireless Indoor/Outdoor 8 channel Thermo-Hygrometer for a couple of years. We have one sensor in freezer, refrig, under one slide in the shade, one in storage compartment and one in container with water filter. I use Lithium batteries in all units and they have excellent life span. System comes with three sensors and display console. Worth looking at. Jim
