RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Just wondering, this thread is now over two years old. When was the last time this rig went over a 100 miles?

RE: Turning your heat off at home while in Florida

You could always run it to a sump then out to the septic. Large runs of water should be OK. It’s just those small ones that will create the ice dams.

RE: Turning your heat off at home while in Florida

Just a FYI. A sewer system in extreme cold climates is designed with the idea someone will be living there running hot showers and doing dishes. This water will keep the pipe from the house out (and it’s surrounding ground) from freezing. If no one is around for a length of time do not run water into the sewer. Otherwise it will freeze an backup. Also in extreme cold area’s if your foundation is in clay you run the risk of a lateral crack about four feet up from the floor. Not worth the expense of scrimping on heat in the basement. The heat escape will help keep the frost away.

RE: If money was no object,....

If money was no object, but staying within the RV lifestyle I would own about four Class A only sites from about Palm Springs to Key West. Spend a month at each and 3 to 7 days going from one to the other. Wherever the sun was shining and temps in the 70’s would be where I pointed the nose of the DP.

RE: Winter camping

Go to Good Sam Camping Directory: Clicky Choose you area. Then check “on site rentals.” That should bring up a list for you.

RE: Alexa and home security.

Another way to look at listening is what a dog does. Hears everything, but only key things will get their attention. For the truly paranoid, a smart phone has a listener, and can be accessed remotely. Might want to pull the battery when not in use. Guessing that could be view as snarky by some. yMMV. :B

RE: Alexa and home security.

We had bought "Google Home" and after setting it up discovered that it is monitoring every thing we said. We promptly returned it It is bad enough that when on the net we are being monitored No Thanks| Guy This is a snowbirding forum for when you’re away for the winter. Can’t help those that fear change, but I can help those that don't.

RE: Alexa and home security.

It should also work with cheap $10 water and flood sensor alarms or any form of an alarm.

Alexa and home security.

Just came out and is very easy to incorporate: “Alexa Guard can help you keep your home safe. Get Smart Alerts sent to your phone if Alexa detects the sound of smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms, or glass breaking when you’re away. Guard also works with connected smart lights to make it look like someone’s home. Guard is a free Alexa feature. To get started, from your mobile device: 1) Open the latest version of the Alexa app. 2) Navigate to the Settings menu. 3) Select Guard to begin setup.”

RE: The Wife Says We Are Keeping Our '89

The real question is how many miles you put on a year and how far from your home base you venture. If a lot, 30 yeas is pushing your luck.

RE: Leaving the trailer in Florida for the summer

My in-law’s once left a car in Florida without any prep. They came back next winter to an interior that was black with mold. Trick is to keep a dry environment during the summer. Ask others in the park what they do.

RE: sparkplugs and wires

The 460 was known for fuel filters. A lean condition could produce a hotter engine and issues. When was the last time the filter replaced.

RE: Snowbird Report Card

DW and I flew down to south Texas and rented a place for two months. From there we flew to Miami and hopped on a cruise ship. Sixteen days later got off in San Diego and flew home. In hindsight, should have rented a car an took a week or two to get back. Way too much snow to deal with, a little longer and the sun would have gotten a lot of it. Cost about the same as six months of RVING (not including the depreciation of the RV.) Weather in TX was chilly, but in a S&B is more bearable then in a RV with 2 inch walls and R1 windows. Central and South America the weather was delightful, but poverty was rampant.

RE: sparkplugs and wires

Can’t lose with NGK. Wires your call, but keep high heat in mind. Might even invest in heat socks for the ends.

RE: Dealer never put TITLE in my name, am I stuck??

NO! You're not out of luck. Sorry for your health problems...hope they straighten out soon so you can enjoy camping again. Reading your post, it appears the dealer did what they were supposed to do at the time of sale. They gave you your temporary plate to take back to your home state for registration. Unfortunately you weren't able to complete the transaction at that time, so now the monkey is on your back. I would gather whatever paperwork you have, bill of sale, temp plate, cancelled check etc and take that to your local motor vehicle registration dept. They will be able to guide you through the process. The Florida dealer can't do anything for you. Do a VIN check; a lot of them are free, but in your case I'd do a complete check. They are less than $50. Take that to the MV dept as well. Be prepared though, if you haven't paid your sales tax on the coach, there may be fees and penalties due... best of luck ... Dennis The OP has NO TITLE. They never sent one. So, how are they supposed to proceed without a title? Doug Legal documents were signed transferring ownership to the OP. Dealership I’m sure was just a pass thru company. It’s illegal to sell something you don’t own, known as fraud. Call the police, say you want to press charges, then go from there on their advice. This isn’t the first time this has happened. It occurs in other states also.

They committed fraud. Call your local police

RE: Camco RV vent covers

That is correct they don’t last as long. Buddy and I had side by side experience. He went cheap, I spent the extra $10. His broke off in no time with the Texas sun. Mine still good when I sold the rig.

RE: Travelling back and forth

They have these new things out called cheap FL airline tickets (mostly out ofUS cities), cheap hotels/AirBnB/VRBO, and cheap FL car rentals. Works really well for short FL stays. Like I always said RVING is only cheap traveling when you turn the key off. I’m guessing there is a need to travel (disability) in a MH this time of year for such a short time. If that’s the case then yes with hardship you can accomplish what you need to do.

RE: Carribean side trip?

If you do the western Caribbean i’ll echo Ivy on Mexico. Once you leave the loving embrace of the cruise port you’re fair game to all the street erchins. That’s when a couple of beers inside the port while DW shops the port stores, or a cruise sanctioned tour for both starts looking real smart. As far as staterooms goes, I told the DW 25 years ago, chose between three cruises or two cruises with nicer staterooms. Saved a lot of arguments over the years. I do RCCL mostly because they got their hooks into me. So chose wisely at the very beginning because it could be a long commitment. Currently a RCCL pit - pinnacle in training.

RE: Bumper to bumper RV's Leaving

Took a day trip to South Padre Island March 1 and bumper to bumper RV's Leaving the Island. Trying to get out ahead of spring break I suppose. Was very surprised at the huge number leaving all at once. Very normal. RV’s can not be left year round on SPI making for a mobile community. Also rent on SPI is higher then most to extremely expensive. If trying to save money the valley will be slicing their prices right about now trying to get the last fleeting RV dollars. A mobile RVer needs to be settled prior to spring break in many places in Texas, just not the MTV known areas. Hill County will be booked as will as most the coastline. Spring break comes in many forms just not barfing frat boys.
