RE: Picking out good camping chairs

I've got two of those - at least ones that are almost identical. Bought them about three years ago from Academy sports. Still in perfect shape. Our camping buddies also have them. We all love them. Im with Jim - not sure what is happening to your chairs or why. I've never had issues with my chairs rotting from storage. Mike

RE: RV Armor Roof Experiences

Just in case you missed my previous post about this topic, you can read my post about it, including pictures of the process, here. This was done a couple of years ago and the roof still looks like new. What a huge contrast to the stuff I used before that. Barney Thanks Barney So in your case, I see RV ARmor pulled your old rubber roof off. Was that at your request or because roof was damaged?? They told me they put the application directly over the existing roof, to include existing seam sealant etc... Not sure why I care either way, but I'd prefer removal down to the wood, and then build up from there. Mike

RE: RV Armor Roof Experiences

Thanks all. Think Im leaning towards FlexArmor. There's a dealer in Atlanta about 2 hours away). Both have lifetime transferable warranty. Flex Armor is about $2000 higher than RV Armor. I like that they remove the roof completely. RV Armor brushes on over the existing roof material. Appreciate the inputs Mike

RE: RV Armor Roof Experiences

I requested a quote for Flex Armor. If you have to replace something like your antenna, skylight or something along those lines, how would you do that with Flex Armor? For RV Armor, they told me they would walk me through the process while tech is at my house, Then, If I need to do that, I can get material from them, do the work, take some pics, and once they see the finished job, they will still honor the lifetime warranty. Just curious with a spray on application required to be done in the shop, how you would handle replacing something? Mike

RV Armor Roof Experiences

Wanted to see if anyone here has had RV Armor roof coating installed and if so, are you happy with it? Any issues, concerns etc..? Im contemplating it, and having discussions with them about getting it scheduled to be completed. I don't have any roof issues currently. Im planning on keeping this RV, so it's a worthwhile investment for me to do now. I did ask them how it would work if I had to say, replace my antenna afteer the RV armor was installed. They said they could train me how to do it, and provide some materials and they would still honor the warranty. Seemed pretty good deal to me. All my correspondence has been positive. Prices are going up, never down. I looked into it a few years ago, and it was $100 per linear foot. It's now up to $165 per linear foot. Any first hand use comments would be greatly appreciated. Mike

RE: Ram 6.7 no start

My OEM batteries only lasted 5.5 years. Didn't even get 6, much less 7 out of them. Im firmly on the "it's your batteries" train. It's definitely not a fuse. When my batteries gave up the ghost, it was with no warning. One day worked fine, next day dead. Other powered accessories worked. As others have said, get your batteries tested. Test them individually. Mike

RE: Show us what you cook on!

Ditto on Weber 1200 and Blackstone 17" And then there's also the trusty Coleman double burner stove as needed. Mike

RE: Torklift Glowstep Revolution Review

Im really happy with mine. I don't have this locking arm interference issue you mention. I wonder if it was just accidentally bent or something in shipment, or packing. As msmith1 says, there are I think three total positions the steps can lock into that help to make the steps level. And yes, it does increase the step height from top step. But, these adjustments, and the leg adjustments, really make a difference. May not help if you really need a fourth step though, as posted. Mike

RE: Star Trek Themed Trip

There's a Star Trek experience in Vegas. But then there's a lot of other stuff in Vegas that might throw you off your theme. Mike

RE: Electric and ICE forever together?

Technology still has a long way to go. This is the year we were supposed to be like the Jetsons.

RE: Electric and ICE forever together? While electric cars reduce fossil fuel emissions once they are on the road, the production of the lithium-ion batteries that power them causes more displacement and CO2 emissions than the production of regular gas-powered cars. Disposal of the batteries at the end of their life cycle is also a growing concern. Published Jan 14 2022 It's really not all that hard to find something on the inter-web to back just about any conclusion one wants to make.

RE: Electric and ICE forever together?

EV doesn't mean Electric Vehicle but means anything that doesn't use fossil fuel? Really? New definition? From my best friend, Google EV: Electric Vehicle - Any vehicle that uses electric motors to move. FCEV: Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle - Uses hydrogen fuel cells to produce energy for the vehicle. HEV: Hybrid Electric Vehicle - Any vehicle that uses a combination of an internal combustion engine and battery pack as its primary power source. The "E" in all these variations mean Electric.

I took my camper to my daughters house. Son in law said he wired in a 30 amp breaker. I asked if it was 120, he said yes. I plugged in, and no joy and progressive EMS wouldn't start up THANKFULLY. He had bought a double breaker (240) and wired that in. Once I fixed it, everything worked fine. No doubt without the EMS, I would have fried a bunch of stuff in RV. Mike

RE: Pets left alone in RV at campground?

My dog agrees with me that it's okay to leave him alone. He actually enjoys his quiet time. He disagrees vehemently when we don't take him camping with us. He knows when we are going camping or even when I pack for a business trip. So yeah, as long as he behaves he's going with us. And I will continue to treat him just like we do at home. If we go out to dinner, he stays home. If we go for a walk, or go sightseeing, he goes with us as appropriate. So, unless someone of authority comes and tells me to leave a campground Im at because I left him alone in my RV, not sure I care what anyone else thinks of that. And yeah, I will have alcohol, even when a park says no alcohol. I have even inquired about it and was told as long as it's not seen, and Im not a problem, they are fine with it. Out come the coozies and it's all good. I have also been known to speed a time or two. Guess Im living a little dangerously in my old age. Mike

RE: Pets left alone in RV at campground?

Not that dedmiston needs to be defended, but in his defense, I didn't quote you so unless he scrolled back to see who said it, he wouldn't know. You said that you were conveying that you "agreed with his preamble (or whatever), but disagreed with his conclusion. How about just saying "I agree with your description of the situation, but differ in the conclusion. Saying I don't disagree just confuses your argument And for what it's worth, I wasn't personally attacking you either, which is why I didn't quote you. I simply stated I find it amusing how people have resorted to saying "I don't disagree".. instead of simply stating "I agree". It really is okay to say "I agree with your description but have a different opinion on why it's important to follow the rules". To say "I don't disagree", and then state in a paragraph or two why you disagree makes no sense and weakens the written argument. It's clear how you feel about the issue, as it is equally clear how others do. Mike

RE: Pets left alone in RV at campground?

I most closely align with the position that what goes on inside my RV is none of your business unless what Im doing directly affects you negatively. I also get a chuckle when people say "I don't disagree". Why can't you just say "I agree". I hear that alot. Somewhere in life we, as a society, got to the point where some people refuse to agree, even when they agree. They draw their line at "not disagreeing", instead of simply saying I agree. If you don't disagree, then by default, you agree. Mike

RE: RAM 3500 with HO 6.7L Cummins SRW

I have a 2017 Ram 3500, 6.7HO and Aisen Trans. I had a 2014 Ram 2590 6.7 as well prior to the 3500. 3500 gets probably 1.5-2MPG less than the 2500 when not towing. Towing it's about the same. Mike
