RE: Star Link

Im 61 and I do play some video games. Can't keep up with my grandson on Call of Duty or Fortnight though. Mike

RE: Star Link

I signed up for it. I just purchased 7 acres of land in a rural area that does not have any internet options except for Hughes.Net. DSL only available for people who have it today. Planning on building a house and hoping to move out there by end of the year. So, hoping Starlink will be available here by then. May not be perfect, but will be better than 2-3 bars of cell service with a hotspot. Mike

RE: Resuming Rving... ideas dealing with Covid.

Cracks me up seeing people driving in their cars alone with masks on. The dimwits don't seem to understand that these cloth masks really on provide a modicum of protection for others around the mask wearer. The dishrag over your nose and mouth does ZERO to keep you from inhaling the virus. Other than wearing masks when entering a public area (store etc), and working from home still, my routine and actions have been largely unchanged. We still go out to eat with friends of ours on the weekend, we still go RVing. I have sanitizer with me I use after pumping gas and after being in the restaurant. But, other than that, life is pretty much unaffected. Mike

RE: CC&R dated 1973 says no RVs, trailers, boats can be stored

I would think that since no HOA was established when the developer gave up his interest in the community, the covenants are no longer effective or enforceable. There MUST be an organization in place that contains in its bylaws or articles of incorporation, the stated covenants in question. Consequently, no HOA in place, no enforceable restrictions. ryoung There you go thinking... Before I dropped hundreds of thousands of dollars on a house, I would talk to a lawyer like OP said he was going to do, or maybe has. I can't imagine going up in front of a judge and saying "Judge, the guys on RV.NET said it would be okay and the covenants are not enforceable. Something tells me that wouldn't go over very well (grin) Mike

RE: Resuming Rving... ideas dealing with Covid.

RVing provides a great opportunity to socially distance etc.. perhaps even better than what you can do living at home. You have to get gas to do your local whatevers, so follow the same precautions when gassing up on the road. You have to get groceries etc while at home, so just follow the same protocols while on your trip, and try to stock up as much as possible before you leave. Other than that, you are essentially (or can be) isolated, which is a great thing. I would just do what has worked for you, and keep that up while on the road. Mike

RE: Help!!!! Travel Trailer Back in

I've tried the swoop/scoop but have never been able to make it work. Dedmiston, reading how you did it, I might have been doing it a little wrong. My issue has always been my TV is too close to the curb after completing the swoop. I'll have to try it again a little slower this time around. Mike

RE: Help!!!! Travel Trailer Back in

Some good advice here. I'll just add 1. Take it slow 2. Don't sweat it if you miss the mark. Just patiently start over. My last camping trip, it was like I totally forgot how to back up. No matter what I did, the trailer didn't cooperate. It was in an easy back in slot with no obstacles but it took me forever to get in. Afterwards our camping buddies and I had a great laugh. Some times it just be like that. Mike

RE: CC&R dated 1973 says no RVs, trailers, boats can be stored

Im just mildly curious. Did OP actually go to the neighbor and say "hey, Im thinking of buying this place, and I have an RV... Do you have a problem with that"? I guess I assume something like that transpired. Otherwise, why would she even comment or know he has an RV? Or, OP, did you see the CC&R and then ask the neighbor? Either way, I guess it's good you found out before you bought the place. With the CC&R written the way you describe, I wouldn't have even gotten to the point of considering it personally. Mike

RE: Reservation blues - UPDATED

If I were to summarize, you are upset because someone reserved your site when you chose not to? How is someone on line supposed to know not to book an open site because you are there and wanted to keep it? If you wanted to stay there why didn't you just book it yourself? Maybe I am missing something. Yeah, I think your missing something. I believe he said reservations could only be made 3 days out. He found his site open, took it for two days, tried to make the reservation for day 3 through 12 (remember, reservations 3 days out), and someone had already reserved it. I don't think he's "upset" or mad. He's got the reservation for day 4 through whatever, and hoping he can convince the person who has it for one day to take another spot. If I were that person, and there were open spots that I could fit into near it, I'd switch no problem. Different story if that was the only site open I could fit in. And I wouldn't accept your money Oldman.. I'd just consider it an act of kindness that is far to rare in today's society unfortunately. Mike

RE: Why is 5th wheel standard vs Gooseneck?

Reese Goosebox weighs about 225lbs. My Pullrite Superglide weighs nearly 300, but I know other 5th wheel hitches weigh less than 300, so weight difference is probably overall minimal. Of course, if Goosebox REPLACES existing pinbox (which Im guessing it does), then weight differential is greater. I believe the Reese Goosebox is the only gooseneck that Lippert will not void the warranty if you use. Ease of hookup is another Im sure, but how much harder is it to hook up a gooseneck than it is to hook up a bumper pull TT? In terms of why INDUSTRY went this way, Im sure it had to do with the frame stresses and the ability for manufacturers to use cheaper pin boxes, and not have to worry about compatibility. If a buyer wants a different pinbox, they will ask for it and pay for it accordingly. Mike

RE: Rec Pro RV furniture

I bought the RecPro dual recliner/theater seating and the sleeper sofa. Cloth not leather. Didn't want to deal with potential of leather peeling. Yes, the cup holders are large enough for a soda can, with cooler insulator (I think). yes, the chrome on top of the holder does peel off. Agreed not the biggest of recliners, but it's okay for me at 6ft 3. Also, the sleeper sofa came with an upgraded mattress. My granddaughters friend slept on it and said it was very comfortable. Mike

RE: Need Help Deciding which feature for trailer

I thought at on time I wanted an outdoor kitchen, then decided I wanted the extra storage instead. Im with TenOC.. flexibility to move the grills etc to wherever I want them, not wherever the RV wants them. Mike

RE: Price increase at our KOA

Well there ya go. Sounds like a win-win outcome. Mike

RE: Price increase at our KOA

The long and the short of it is that all the seasonal folks like ourselves were getting a large discount over the daily rate. The new owners feel like it is too much of a discount. Many of our seasonal friends are leaving due to the price increase which means they can now convert to dailies and an even higher rate. So, I get that it sucks that this is happening. But, if you look at it from the new owners perspective, it could be that a review of the books when he purchased the business showed that it was not as profitable as it could be. So, he's likely taking steps to improve his bottom line, which is exactly what he should do. I suspect he is factoring in the fact that there are more potential customers than there are spots in his campground. So, to that end, he probably figures that for every long term guest that leaves because of this policy, there were be two or threefold customers waiting in the wings who are willing to pay full fare. Sucks for sure. Have you guys reached an amicable agreement at all? Interested in how this turns out. Mike

RE: West Glacier to Moab in 4 days?

If it's 900 miles, that, to me is a hard two days or a decent 3 days. Mike

RE: Do you regret getting rid of your RV cornices?

Well now, I've learned TWO things this week. Cornices are NOT the moldings around the edge of roof and wall, like I thought google description was saying. But, they are what I think most people refer to as valances. Learned more this week than I have in a while. I'll still call them valances though.... Mike

RE: Do you regret getting rid of your RV cornices?

Had to google it to find out Cornice - an ornamental molding around the wall of a room just below the ceiling. So, I just looked around my RV, and I have wooden trim along the edge of ceiling and wall, so I assume these are cornices? If that's a correct assumption, mine are basically unobtrusive and I really didn't pay any nevermind one way or the other. Any other RV I've been in, I've never noticed them sticking out, so why get rid of them? I can honestly say I learned something new today on Mike

RE: ANWR Drilling Stopped

"Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., warned Tuesday that President Biden's sweeping executive orders related to the industrial energy sector will be detrimental to both the nation and his home state. "They are going to gut Louisiana like a fish. His war on oil and gas is going to hurt America. It is going to destroy our energy independence." "Here is President Biden's new energy policy: We are not going to produce our own oil. Instead, we are going to buy oil from countries that hate us so they will have more money to buy weapons to try to kill us." Kennedy remarked that Democrats like Biden have turned green energy and "climate change" into a religion, and the president is "sucking it up like a Hoover Deluxe." "It's immeasurably foolish," Kennedy went on. "Most Americans support an all-of-the-above energy policy: Oil, gas, wind, solar, nuclear, geothermal, hydrogen. But they also understand that we can't run the greatest economy in all of human history without oil and gas." ROFLMAO......................... The class clown John Kennedy, not related to the venerable. namesake, strikes again. This time he was absent on current events class. Otherwise, he would have known that his own idol and messiah, have grabbed-credit and told everyone who. cares to listen that we are no longer oil dependent, since six years ago anyways. And the only reason we are still refining Saudi oil and still putting our own soldiers in harms way guarding the Gulf oil shipping lanes is because no one can cross those oil lobby to. invest to retrofit for purely domestic crude. Nobody sheds a tear for LA. The state can continue to get tax money from the Northern and Coastal states that they hate so much and continue to elect this buffoon. You make no sense at all. TDS is strong with you and it has nothing to do with anything quoted. If you ever visit LA you just might have your ass handed to you. I can't understand why you have to bring a half-assed clown politicians into this but I'll play. LA and your politicians may know my ass, but I don't think they know other body parts. His state is the last in education. And while. we're at it complaining about other states letting his pet Keyssttone pipeline pass, then, maybe, he can find a way for his state to earn enough to their own upkeep and not be dependent on the Northern and Coastal states' taxes. Here is whereof I speak. John Kennedy's (not related to venerable namesake) state got $11,103. per capital for spending when it only paid $7,318 each in taxes. And that dumb clown probably don't even realize that his state can get their crude delivered by ship being by the Gulf of Mexico.:h :S Pot - meet kettle

RE: Price increase at our KOA
