RE: RV Cover

Steve, that's why I told my Realestate agent NO HOA's. S Because HOAs are invariably run by busybodies and power trippers. I find it to be a ridiculous concept. Agree to let your neighbors tell you what to do? No thanks. Sorry to derail the thread (or continue the derailing), but HOAs are not run by busybodies and power trippers. They are run by residents who have a copy of the agreement that is supplied to and signed by every homeowner who lives in the neighborhood. HOAs are designed to keep neighborhoods from becoming eyesores and protect home values. We have next door neighbors who have complained that they moved to our neighborhood (and out of the city) so the could do whatever they want. Whatever they want includes parking half a dozen cars in their yard, having a dirt path beside their driveway to get in and out because they have 8-10 cars at their house often, storing their wine cooler on their front porch, mowing every 4-6 weeks, whether the yard needs it or not in Houston, etc. They signed an agreement to abide by the rules in the covenant when they purchased their house. Now they are upset because they didn't actually read them and aren't allowed to live like trash. You don't want to live by HOA rules? Just don't buy in a neighborhood that has one and sign the agreement, then complain about the rules you agreed to. And No, I am not on the HOA board nor do I have any intentions of joining. But I do intend to abide by the rules I agreed to when I bought my house and I expect my neighbors to do likewise. Totally agree. The people who complain about HOA's are usually the selfish ones who have zero respect for their neighbors or even their own yards. Keep the ghetto in the ghetto, and the Billy's on their Hills. I like my neighborhood clean and classy.

RE: Best wax for lazy people?

So does ALL the wax have to be hand spray pumped on and ragged off? ...remember the 'lazy' tag in the OP? The Wash-N-Wax will make it look good. For real purdy you will have to spray pumped on and ragged off. ****. ...there goes the lazy.

RE: Best wax for lazy people?

Man, I love this forum! Where else can I get five replies and at the same time no responses :) Reminds me of pretty much every campground I've been to while walking around at night and spot chatting to all the people! Especially those with the red solo cups in their hands.

Best wax for lazy people?

So if you were lazy and dreading washing and waxing your 32' fiberglass siding TT, what would be the fastest most bestest way to get it looking real purdy? No way am I gonna old school Mr. Miyagi style the wax. Thanks:)

RE: just booked labor day (and got a site)

Wow! We start booking in January for most of our extended summer trips out of the area. Local county parks by us (that we do on weekends) have a 90 day out max window to book and you have to be online clicking like a crazy person exactly at 7pm to get an electric site and the date you want. Its like trying to get a Southwest "A" seat but worse. We landed a few nights for this week only two weeks ago bc we said "lets just check" and whaddaya know?! There must have been a cancellation! Cant hurt to try right?

RE: Pleated shade only raises half way?

OP here Only a single pleated shade. Not 2 part day/night. No cord to pull, cords mounted to wall on each side and it raises similar to how a cordless shade does - by just lifting. Anyway, after much endless fussing and plenty of cussing, I got it to go 90% of the way up smoothly. Holy smokes what a total PITA! Yeah, I was this close to ripping it off the wall and tossing it in the garbage, but there are five other matching shades and I didnt want an oddball one. It seems to be that both cords on either side have to have exactly the same amount of tension, and you can only adjust them when the shade is completely lowered. You have do a little adjustment at a time, one at a time. Hope that help anyone who has the same problem.

RE: Dogs that dont bark at people

OP, I knew by the title of your post that it would be about a lab. We got our precious Daisy in September, 2002 at 7 weeks of age and lost her in October, 2015 to cancer. She was a pure bred yellow lab and was stunningly beautiful and she knew it. She was a social butterfly who never needed to be tied up (and never wandered) and we miss her dearly to this day. We will get another lab at some point, but I wanted to say you have a beautiful dog and thank you for sharing your wonderful post! Thank you! Boomer never 'wanders' either so to speak. When he's off leash on a trail hike, he never goes more than 25 yards out and constantly checks in on us. He does like to 'visit' other people in the sites around us though, so he has to be kept on a lead when camping. Not everyone is a *dog person* and with him, it's very easy to tell who is and who isn't. Sorry that your Daisy went to the Rainbow Bridge. There's going to be a lot of tears 'round here when Boomie goes. I specifically waited until my DD was 7 years old to get him. Hopefully, she will be in her early twenties when he goes and it won't be devastating for her. But I'm not sure it will be any easier. https://i.imgur.com/730oGtvl.png https://i.imgur.com/mtlJH9fl.jpg

RE: Whoever said you can't support the camper by the frame?

The only problem with jacking under the axle is many are made with ridiculously thin tubing and they can be bent. Okay, now that makes sense. My thought was that the wheels are attached to the hubs that are attached to the axle. So your just supporting it from another position. But if you put a vertical pressure point on the tube that normally has a horizontal load on it, I get that it may bend if its weak. Really though when you change a flat you're not jacking up the entire trailer if it has more then one axle. You're just raising up one half of one axle. The majority of the load is still on all the other wheels and the trailer tongue or tongue jack.

RE: Whoever said you can't support the camper by the frame?

Some Folks say you should never have the wheels off the ground.. Some truth to that "Because the suspension is designed to hold the trailer up not the wheels/axles" (pure bunk) The reason you should never have the wheels off the groung is the STABLIZER jacks can pretzel on you (Seen it happen) but with proper supports (As shown in the photos) no problem at all.. (Thankfully it was just the front stablizers on a trailer that pretzeled. so the tongue jack handled the load once it was properly set up Could have been worse) Oh. I drive a class A.. (So you know it was not mine) The wheels are the only thing making contact with the ground, so aren't they supporting the camper? And if i am changing a tire on the side of the road, the jacks wont be down anyway, right?

RE: Whoever said you can't support the camper by the frame?

I think the phrase was `do not support the camper by the axle'. I always jack up our camper by the frame when changing/rotating tires. Really? Why not? That seems overkill. Am I missing something? Why on a dual axle trailer cant you just jack up the axle and lift a flat tire off the ground? The other tire doesn't raise up and still supports half of the weight.

RE: Pleated shade only raises half way?

This is only a band aid but what if you loosen the tension and put a small cleat in an appropriate place to tie off the pull line. There isn't really a 'pull line', as in the traditional miniblinds with a pull cord to raise them. Just the stationary down cords on both sides attached to the wall with a little spool.

Pleated shade only raises half way?

So I get that the tension on the string, that is attached to the spool that's screwed into the wall, allows the shade to raise and lower. When the tension is too loose the shade will fall on its own, and if it's too tight it will be too hard to raise. My issue is that on a large shade, over the dinette slide window that's probably about 48" wide, will only go up halfway before jamming. It raises smoothly from the bottom until halfway up and will remain there, but will go no further. If I loosen the tension it won't stay up at all and if I tighten it any more it won't raise even from the bottom. These are new shades in a 2019 TT. Any suggestions?

Looks like he has quite a following. Yeah, people have jokingly told us he needs his own facebook/twitter accounts. Others say all I need is an organ grinder and a tip cup!
