RE: Cottonwood Trees and their Seeds

We have a under floor heat-pump that collects cottonwood seeds. I pay my grand-daughters to remove them. . . there may be a bit of OCD involved?

RE: RV trip to Squim WA

Long drive to Sequim. Do you want most direct route, most interesting route, or? What do like to see and do?

RE: Supplemental brake locked up - at the wrong time.

My RoadMaster Braking System locked up while towing my CR-V on the Interstate. We were traveling at 55mph when I felt a tug and saw smoke coming from the tires of the CR-V. Everything stopped in a straight line in about 250 feet, and cars were able to swerve around us. Fortunately we were just at an exit with lots of room and I was able to stop there. I disconnected the system, inspected things, and continued driving to St George, Utah, when I finally disconnected the CR-V, felt the squared off tires, drove to a tire shop and replaced all 4 tires. After phone calls to RoadMaster, the installer, and tire shops, it appears that the rubber floor mat needed to be removed before hooking up the system. Apparently the braking system can shift its location when on a slippery system, and lock the brakes. I was never told this before, and the installer had left the mat in place when I towed the CR-V away. That was expensive!

RE: Trying to level my motorhome

Is the driveway not a constant slope? Try the level on a 8' or longer 2x4, and measure in several locations along the slope.

RE: sewer odor

The thru-the-roof vent was installed too low into the grey water tank on my MH and when the tank was 1/2 full the roof vent would no longer function and odors would escape through the kitchen sink drain. The tank/roof vent connection was essentially inaccessible, so I removed the air-admittance valve and tight-lined that vent to the exterior, which solved the problem. I also raised the roof vent further above the roof line and installed a rotating Venturi cap. Another time I found a wasp nest just under the roof vent cap. Do not pull out the nest with your bare hand while standing on a ladder. I'm glad that there was not a video.

RE: honda

I think that the last Honda that was available for 4-wheels down towing was the 2014 CR-V. The new transmission is the problem. The value of mine is now enhanced!

RE: What do you do with cat at Campgrounds

We tried the harness and leash today and she freaked, fortunately there is a rainy weekend predicted for our next trip, so we may not even go outside ourselves. She loves the dashboard, and I fabricated a foam rubber barrier to the area behind the couch. . . we'll see? Sometimes (mostly) she is smarter that we are.

RE: What do you do with cat at Campgrounds

Thanks for all the comments, I have questions also. We adopted a 4 month old cat that is now 8 months old and is an indoor cat. We have a harness and leash for her (never yet used), but will practice with her before we take the MH out next week The last time we took her in the MH, she dropped over the back on the couch/bed, crawled underneath and spent much time there. She couldn't get out herself and we needed to extend the bed to get her out. . . and then she went back underneath again. She's much more social now and I'm trying to fabricate a barrier at the back of the couch.

RE: Workhorse W24 Fuse Location

Ours was also not factory installed on our 2008 Itasca SunCruiser W24.

RE: Workhorse W24 Fuse Location

I had an issue trying to find fuses on my 2008 Itasca Suncruiser W24 chassis dealing with the HWH leveling system. I called them for help. They offered several suggestions which I tried that didn't work. They actually called back several times trying to help (from workers on a lunch break at the factory). They asked me on which day that the MH was completed. I said that I had no idea, and they said that it then could be anywhere. I think that I laughed? We drove 1,100 miles with the alarm dinging, unable to find the fuses. The control unit was eventually replaced. At one point I told my wife that it has stopped, and she looked at me and said no, it actually had not stopped. My mind was compensating. . . or worse.

RE: Ghost Towns

Our favorite was Bannack State Park in SW Montana. They have two nice campgrounds there within walking distance of the ghost town and you can get in easily and out. We did and we're towing a 35' FW. Look on Campendium, under Dillon, MT, and you'll see my review. We love Bannack State Park and have stayed there several times. We were there once just after repairs were completed from the flood damage. The governor was there for a grand opening and each building had volunteers in period dress with music being played on several of the porches. It was wonderful surprise. The jail is interesting, with its only window facing the gallows on the top of the hill. I had a relative who was a sheriff in Virginia City, MT, which is another interesting ghost town, but a bit more commercial. There was a sheriff in Virginia City who arranged for stage coaches to be robbed between Virginia City and Bannack. . . I don't think that it was him?

RE: Custer State Park

I have a great memory of Custer State Park. In 1972 I was a community organizer in a Lakota Sioux community. Several of us took a break and were driving through the park when we we ended up in the middle of a bison herd of several hundred animals. A woman from Chicago in the back seat became frightened and began screaming. Let's just say that the unwanted attention was not a good thing. I was driving a 1963 Volvo 544 (peanut sized) and several males brushed up against the vehicle. My yelling at her was also not a good thing. It was a memorable event.

RE: Port Townsend Ferry to Coupeville in WA

We take that route often, and usually end up in the front row with a great view. I have had the attendants position me at the front but too close to the side, and I could not make the turn to get off with my tail swing. They had to reposition cars behind me to allow me to back up. I don't let them do that anymore. It is a bit cheaper to disconnect the towed vehicle.

RE: Prostate Cancer

My PSA went from 4 to 7 in a year. I have family history, my father, and cousin. . . his PSA went to 19 and they forgot to warn him, in a year was a 38. You don't want the treatments that he has had over the last 15 years. It also depends on your age. At 68, 4 years ago, we decided to have Da Vinci (the robot) remove mine after 6 of 12 biopsies showed prostate cancer, fortunately it was well contained. PSA is now undetectable.

RE: Gluten Free Pizza Ideas

I like to make my own pizzas, and have found that Udi's ready made gluten-free pizza crusts are my favorite. Here are the ingredients: WATER, TAPIOCA STARCH, BROWN RICE FLOUR, CANOLA OIL, EGG WHITES, DRIED CANE SYRUP, TAPIOCA SYRUP. I'ver tried cauliflower crusts, and am usually disappointed.

RE: Building fence post sewer hose storage. Need 5.5" caps

I drilled a 5/6" hole top and bottom of each end of the vinyl holder, and drop a 1/4" x 6" long bolt into each hole. Not elegant, but simple, cheap, and no collection of moisture.

RE: Propane tanks 10 years old, what is best choice ???

I live on the salt water, and I'm lucky to get 6-7 years on my 20# propane tanks (for my BBQ). I take them to get refilled and they often say: This will be the last time. Rust is the enemy. I've found that it is cheaper to exchange the tanks than to get them re-filled and re-certified. Life is too short to remove the rust and repaint. Besides the fixed propane tank in the MH, I carry (2) 1 gallon tanks for the BBQ, fire-pit, etc., and they do not seem to have a problem with rust?
