RE: Windows license scam

If you don't recognize the number, don't answer. If they don't leave a voice mail or the voice mail is questionable block the number. Good advice. But, sometimes answering is a must. Businesses must answer each phone call, otherwise they go out of business ignoring potential or current customers. DR or Medical services often use a call center that shows up as "800 Services" to relay appointments confirmation or changes to appointments. .... Well... these days a lot of businesses don't actually answer a call with a live person. How many times have you called an office, especially a doctor's office, and had to push a button or two to actually get to a person? "Hello, you've reached the office of Dr. So and So, please push one to talk to a receptionist".... That is intentional - most computer phone scamming systems will just hang up if a live person doesn't answer right away. I've called a few businesses that their answering system asks for your zip code, or last 4 digits of your account number, etc. Then when you get connected to a real person, you have to repeat that information... One of the reasons the answering system asked those questions was to weed out the scam callers.

RE: Changing a tire yourself

I have never had to change a camper tire on the road, but have practiced in my driveway. I did find out two things: 1. My truck's jack works fine to lift the camper and 2. I put a socket in the camper that fits the lug nuts on the camper. I keep a socket wrench in the camper.

RE: Wheel Bearings - re-grease?

It doesn't seem like it is needed to regrease the hubs with so few miles and it was just done, but it is fine if you want to do it just to be sure.

RE: Running lights on cars

I am not a fan of big government...or of even bigger government. Plenty of safety rules out there, most are usually overlapping existing rules any ways. Wearing helmets while driving a car or truck could reduce motor vehicle accident deaths.

Thanks everyone!

RE: Sleepy Hollow, NY parkways?

So as far as I can tell, Route 9 is NOT a parkway?

RE: Sleepy Hollow, NY parkways?

So... is Route 9, going from Tappanzee bridge north,a "parkway"? I am not getting a straight answer from my internet searching.

RE: Sleepy Hollow, NY parkways?

Well, it seems my truck by itself is a no-no... not only over 5,500lbs, but it has combination license plates. I did read somewhere that the travel trailer is okay, but I don't remember where I saw it. Of course, even if my camper would be okay, my truck towing it is illegal, lol. So I have to figure out how to get to Croton Point campground - there is some way to get to it not using a parkway, as it has campsites for campers with full hookups.

Sleepy Hollow, NY parkways?

We are going to Croton Point campground in New York. It is right "up the road" from Sleepy Hollow which we will be touristing. We are coming from I95 going north - looks like most of the routes from there are parkways? Is my F250 and 21ft TT allowed on the parkways? Seems like a "maybe" from what I'm reading. Specifically Sprain Brook Parkway, Saw Mill River Parkway, and "Broadway" (which I think is a parkway?). Thanks for replies.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Maybe if on the Rivian they just turned the headlights 90 degrees? Horizontal instead of verticle?

RE: Do I Want to Break Down Solids?

I can understand what the guy is saying, but I am not sure if it makes that much of a difference if you are dumping regularly. Odor control I can certainly understand, lol! I stopped using black tank chemicals soon after buying our camper. We are weekend campers and do not have a seasonal site, so I empty and rinse the black tank at the end of our weekend camping. My black tank sensors work, sort of - I consider them more of guidelines (said in a pirate voice). There are a variety of ways to do everything involved with camping / RV'ing, figure out what works for you.

RE: toilet

i am new to this site hello all. hope someone can help me with is . i have put 3 new flush seeles in my toilet the last a little while dont understand what is happening the start leaking again the bowl stops holding water. i have put plumbers grease on it and that doesnt last eather. can anyone help. How much is the toilet leaking? Is it leaking into the tank below, or onto the floor of the bathroom? My toilet, which has worked the same since we bought it 18 years ago, will hold water in it for awhile but eventually it "leaks" into the tank below it. It has worked fine all these years. I do remind people to add a little water to the toilet if it is empty before they use it. If your toilet is leaking water onto the floor of the bathroom, then you certainly do need to fix that. You may want to look into just replacing the whole toilet.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

While we wait for Tesla lets check Rivian review and test drive of road in Colorado. https://youtu.be/KGqexebCcUo Good video. I had posted earlier that I forgot about Rivian, didn't even know they were in production. One huge "issue"... Of course all vehicles have their own design, and many times vehicles are designed to set themselves apart. But. I showed my wife parts of that video, especially where the front of the Rivian is clearly visible. Wife had same response I had when I first saw a Rivian years ago... "OMG. That is ugly!" Here's hoping that the Rivian does not go the same way as the car that it reminds me of... perfectly good car, but the styling of the Ford Edsel pretty much killed it. Don't mean to hijack the thread too much, I guess Rivian should have its' own thread?

RE: I'm actually in favor of high cancelation fees....

Why have "cancellation fees"? Why not just pay for what you've reserved? If you can't make it, then you can't make it. Why should a business (or state park) give you the campground fee back?

RE: Figuring Mileages

A general rule of thumb. Use whatever method you want to determine distance. Divide total distance by 50 and you will get a pretty accurate time that includes stops. This ^^ People on this forum told me about the "50 rule" years ago when figuring travel times, and it works.

RE: Oregon to charge 25% more for out of state RV campers

I am a bit surprised as many others that Oregon has NOT been charging more for non-residents all this time. I just assume that when I go to another state's parks that I will pay more. I have no problem with that. As a state resident, all those fees and taxes I pay in my state in addition to a "gate fee" helps to pay for all the state's parks and facilities. Speaking of fishing license cost - hunting license fee differences can be breathtaking. In Connecticut ("base" fee, there are a lot of add-ons available), a resident deer hunting license is $19. Non-resident fee is $91. I hunted for years in Vermont, usually only a couple weekends, and I paid the non-resident fees. It has always been that way, the differences between resident and non-resident fees for mostly everything. At least up here in the New England area.

RE: Cybertruck RV prototype pictures released

Seems to be little, or no, storage space of any kind. Looks like a college students masters design project.

RE: Tow hall mode

.... The other huge benefit to TH use on descents is that you are not burning a drop of fuel regardless of rpm. TH locks the the torque converter and shuts off the flow of fuel to the engine enhancing not only control but fuel efficiency as well. :C Tow/haul shuts off fuel flow? I've not heard that. I may be misunderstanding.

RE: Navigation options

My Cell loaded the map at startup (With internet) then so long as you did not CLOSE the map app you were golden... I also have a darn hood geo-memory so even if I lost the phone map I was USUALLY at least silver if not Gold. Now it's kind of hard for me to find "NO COVERAGE" spots. That must be what has happened to me, closing down the map app and then trying to "restart" it while in a no-coverage area. I have had Google maps on my cell phone many times tell me "no coverage" or "out of range" while traveling around New England, especially the mountains of Vermont. I used to religiously bring a large map book when traveling... then it was printing out maps for our trips... then it was using a Garmin... now it is usually just using my smart phone with Google maps. It is just so easy to use the smart phone, I've gotten away from everything else. If satellites and cell towers ever stop working, people (including me) won't be able to find their way to the bathroom.

RE: Spouse left behind after death at a Campsite, what to do?

My wife knows how to do everything and has watched me... but reading this makes me realize she's never really done everything on her own. We are usually plenty busy with our "jobs" arriving and leaving a campsite. I keep thinking that I should have her do more with the hitching and towing, but I usually forget until after everything is done.
