RE: Disadvantages of flipping trailer axles?

No problem. I have flipped axles on 2 of my TT. So that the rear end did not drag. The entrance steps will be a little higher. MAKE SURE the wheels (axels) are aligned so the tires do not "toe out/in".

Residential refrigerator outside temperature below 40°

I am living in my travel trailer full time which is permanently parked on a lot. Due to health reasons, I’m no longer traveling on the road. My RV style refrigerator is sick. I need to replace it and I am thinking about replacing it with a residential 10 cu ft refrigerator. However, I read someplace or someone told me that the compressor on a residential refrigerator will shut off at temperatures below 40°. Does anyone know if this is true? If I slip the new residential refrigerator in the hole left by the RV type refrigerator it will be exposed to the outside air temperature by the vent in the roof as well as the vent on the side of the travel trailer. Is it necessary to close off these vents and insulate the outside wall of the travel trailer? I do know that there must be some ventilation for the compressor which I assume will be vented inside the travel trailer.

RE: Domicile

There is a difference between Domicile and Residence. Think of a college student who goes to an out of state college. His car can be licensed in the state that he lives in (that is the college), but his tax state (domicile) is his home state. Domicile is the state you PLAN TO RETURN TO. Think of all the snow-birds that live 6 months is one state and 6 months in a different state. They do not change the car tags ever 6 months.

RE: Happy With Android OS

I have install Remix_OS_for_PC_Android_M_64bit_B2016112101 (a PC version of android for PC on my laptop) and have been working 7 days to try to understand android so I can run some android games that my grand-son likes on a larger screen. I have also tried "BlueStacks". Still not happy with the results.

RE: Read Aloud Books -- follow the bouncing ball

Most any PC/laptop/tablet has some type of text-to-voice function due to accessibility guidelines. So should be able to read aloud digital books. You may have to search for the settings or app in your particular situation. Yes, but no bouncing ball

RE: Coast to coast

How many days do you camp a year? $10 per night vs $50+. Look for a home park with LOW annual maintained fee such as Breckenridge Lake Resort in Crossville TN. Buy a resell home park membership on the web. I purchase my for about $450 plus the $100 C2C yearly membership + $50 home park dues. Go listen to the Sales pitch, you get a few nights free camping. You can always say NO since the home park buy in fee is very high. Do NOT get a home park near where you will camp due to the 150 mile restriction. I think you need to camp more than 30 days a year to make C2C a good value. Since I am older than 65 I camp mostly at NP, COE, or BLM land for $10 a night.

RE: Fresh water dump inside help

Get a sewer cap with a normal water hose connection such as a Camco RV Sewer Cap 39465. Use the onboard pump to drain the fresh water to the sewer tank that is connected to a normal garden hose.

Converting PC laptop to Android tablet

I have an old Dell Inspiron 15 series 3000 64-bit laptop. I am trying to use android-x86_64-9.0-r2 to convert it into an android “tablet” for my great-grandchild to run some educational games that are only available on android tablets. The installation went reasonably well. However, I cannot get the android laptop to find the WiFi connection. I assume I will need some type of new driver for the built-in WiFi card on the laptop. Any help would be welcome on (1) finding driver and (2) instructions on how to install it is I do not know much about androids based operating system.

RE: Demco Auto-Slide 5th wheel Hitch

Call Demco tech support. They can sell you the correct plate. It is simple to install but may take two people to hold in place. We needed a large "C-Clamp" to align the holes.

Game controller for 8-year-old granddaughter-- Windows base

I am not tech savvy. I'm 86 years old and my 8-year-old great-granddaughter wants to play games on my Windows 10 based laptop. I assume I need to purchase a game controller. I looked online and most of the game controllers are for Xbox. Since this is our first Venture into games I don't want to spend a ton of money for a fancy controller. Your suggestions are welcome.

RE: Interstate rest area stops

Not CAMP but rest for 8 to 10 hours OK. However we like Walmart or some of the other free camping because they have less noise. Check out Free Camping

RE: Mobely / 3G shut down????

In July 2021 I replaced my Sick Mobely with a Netgear Unite Explore 815S 4G LTE Mobile Wifi Hotspot I purchased on eBay. Took the SIM card out of Mobely and put in the Netgear. Call AT&T to have them match the SIM card to the new device. All worked VERY WELL. Some features I like better on the Mobely and some I like better on the Netgear. Note: I could not get the AT&T Spark to work even after a number of calls to At&T

New Brunswick – – – mid-October

We are planning a trip to New England in a 35-foot 5th wheel to see the fall colors around mid-October. We are thinking about also making a trip up to New Brunswick to see Bay of Fundy and the Hopewell rocks. Tried to get reservations at Fundy National Park with no joy. 1. Looking for an inexpensive campground (since I expect we are only looking for a place to sleep since we will be seeing the sights more than staying at the campground) that would be open this time a year. I have checked out Campendium. Nothing really exciting to turn me on. 2. Also looking for anything classified as “must-see” or “must do”. 3. We may spend a night or 2 at Mispec Beach which I understand is only a parking lot. Any information on overnight at this beach is welcome.

RE: Mr Buddy Heater Permanent Install?

The only problem I have had with the Big Buddy heater is there is NO thermostat. It is either too hot or too cold.

RE: flex and seal plumbing repair

Since the sewer line is not under pressure you may want to Google for "Insta-Clamp Plumbing Repair Clamp"
