RE: Rt 99 Thru Bakersfield

CA Traveler...I've taken that same route E/W through Bakersfield many times. I read somewhere on this forum about an alternate to 46 between I-5 and 99. I took it a couple years ago and it was a breeze, much less populated, less traffic. I think it might be 7th Standard Rd. I can't remember. Does anyone here know? The road from I5 to 99 is named Lerdo Highway. You go through Shafter but avoid the bad part of 99.

RE: potty without the rv

Which ever way you choose to go, when you are finished, I hope it is all behind you.

RE: why only one page of posts?

I find the software used here to be cumbersome. I find vBulletin much easier to use and has many many more features. Perhaps the Admin could look into a conversion.

RE: California Non-commercial class A license ***New question***

Five years ago I received a Class A non commercial license in California. I had an RV endorsement on my Class B so was grandfathered in when my license was issued. I hit the magic age when a driver is required to take the written tests for renewal. I took all six of the tests including the combination vehicle test which allows a driver to pull a fifth wheel over 15,000 lbs but less than 18,000 lbs. Long story short, when my new license came it is a Class B commercial with the restriction 41. That means I can tow a fifth wheel that weighs more than 10,000 lbs. but less than 15,000 lbs. DMV tells me since I had not taken a driving test with the 18,000 lb. fifth wheel, I will have to drive to qualify for the license. I had the 18,000 lb. fifth wheel for three years. Now to answer your question. The DMV rep in Sacramento told me the only way I could be legal is to have someone with a Class A drive the truck with the fifth wheel trailer to the approved test sight. The only other way is to go to a driving school and get a regular Class A. I was told the examiner at DMV will ask for the person who drove the vehicle to the test sight. Stay legal, phone a friend to drive your rig. Pass the test and enjoy your status - Non commercial Class A.

RE: I want something different!

I agree. When the bean counters run a restaurant, the food quality goes in the toilet. Seems they always want a big bottom line, not a big line of customers wanting their food.

RE: Allowing non-housebroken dog to move in

We have an older dog with failing eyesight. There is a dog door for him to use, but he does not want to go out at night. It became a problem when we had puddles on the carpet. To alleviate the problem, we trained him to go out every evening around 8:30. I have a very bright flashlight that I shine on him and give the command "Let's go outside." He can see the light and follows outside into the backyard. I then tell him "Go pee pee." He does his job and we go back inside. No more night time messes.

RE: Dash AC

Your A/C unit defaults to defrost when there is no vacuum to the control. Find the inlet port on the control and work out from there. Check the loose hose when the engine is running to see if there is vacuum there. If so, there is your problem. Just find where to plug it in.

RE: 3 day sale?

I copied and pasted the link in a private browser window and was able to complete the transaction. There is a name for this. I call my computer FRED. That is short for: Frustrating Ridiculous Electronic Device

RE: Hearing

I have a set of Phonak aids with the ComPilot. So does the DW. She uses the TV link. I have a new set on order that eliminate the ComPilot. So much for hearing aids. We both have a very difficult time understanding the TV audio. I went to the Video control panel and found various program categories. I selected different items and listen to the sound. Amazing difference. When I selected "sports event" the background music was quite a bit less. We can hear and understand much better now. Try different settings on your TV and you may hear better.

RE: Battery/inverter

Clean the battery terminals. Then test the batteries.

RE: Be careful how you use GPS

We have a term we use in the fire service - Death By GPS. Yes, PEOPLE BLINDLY TRUST THAT DEVICE AND WIND UP IN TROUBLE. A famous mistake resulted in the death of an entire family. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_Valley_Germans I don't believe this was the cause of a GPS. It's not mentioned in the article and I believe this was prior to GPS technology being available to the public. Even if it was, it likely would have only showed location on a blank map and not capable of plotting a route. Google death by GPS and you will find many examples of problems in the Death Valley area. I live close to Death Valley and have read many articles on this incident. Way too much information to put in a post here. Thank you for your opinion on this. It keeps the discussion alive, which is more than I can say for those German tourists.
