RE: In a quandary

Go ahead and freely associate. If you are vaxxed then you have nothing to worry about. That what getting jabbed is all about. The only way to get back to normal is to not live in fear of everything.

This WRONG on so many levels...!

A specialty grocery store in Wisconsin created “Spooktoberfest brats” — bratwurst made with candy corn.:E “Hetzel said they add approximately three cans of Wisconsin's Lake Louie Brewing Oktoberfest beer, two bags of candy corn and seasoning to 25 pounds of brat meat. Each batch makes about 120 brats.” “Spooktoberfest brats”

RE: 2013 Arctic Fox 990S

Hello Don, I am sure others will chime in, but my opinion relates along the line of the KISS principle. And in keeping true to that then sometime "less is more" and for me it meant NO monitoring system. At one time (on one of my campers) the regulator went out. I replaced it with an auto change-over type that never seemed to worked as described- It may have been the below-freezing temperature in which I mostly camped that caused improper operation. I had 2 tanks and assume your AF has two as well. Well, the auto change-over never really worked as it seemed it should. I wanted hassle-free gas and one would think that with 2 tanks then it should operate properly. Anyway... my priorities were to have plenty of gas, to never run out and to use a tank to its completion so as to never have to "top off a tank." I never wanted to take a tank to the refill station with any partial LP remaining. My solution was to use one tank and only one tank to its complete depletion. When it ran out I would manually change over the valve to the other full tank. I never left for a camping trip without at least one full bottle. My method was not without effort. There were times when I would hear the furnace not kick in (I am a light sleeper anyway.) Was I getting outside in my skivvies at 3AM in 10 degree temperatures to switch the tank? Well, ...there was at least one time I recall doing so. The nice thing about getting outside during that situation was to take a leak, look up at the clear sky and potential shooting stars... and then rushing back in to a warm bed and camper. But, did I have hassle free propane? Yes, for me it was despite an occasional minor inconvenience. Perhaps relish in the time of what minor inconveniences there might be... after all, it is camping. There are larger things of which might cause anxiety. Maybe one should be more concerned with how much beer one has instead of propane ;) Enjoy the trip and forget small the small stuff.

RE: Rental Car Question

Most insurance companies (for your own car) will will extend the coverage that you have over to the rental, but beware of pitfalls such as gap. Caution: Our insurance advisor has never heard of this 'gap'. Please double check with your carrier anyway before renting a car. Follow up to this... I called my insurance company regarding this and they indicated that (words tot he effect) that there is no "gap" concern on their part. In thinking back, me thinks that this "gap" subject might have been a sales tactic by the sales counter representative when I picked up the car. I think it was at that time that there was the attempted insurance upsale that they tried to push. I declined it. Caveat emptor

RE: Rental Car Question

As others have stated, check with your provider. Most insurance companies (for your own car) will will extend the coverage that you have over to the rental, but beware of pitfalls such as gap. By gap I mean values of cars. For example, if my full coverage on my personal car with a $100 deductible covers my personal 2018 $20,000 Ford Taurus and I rent a 2021 Dodge Challenger worth $40,000 and it gets totaled then my insurance may only cover half the value of the rental. You could be on the hook for the other $20K. I rent cars many times a year and was keeping a $100 deductible on my personal car just for such cross-over coverage and denying the insurance by the rental company. I ran the numbers and I am now I am going to up my personal car deductible to $1000 but take the rental insurance option on future rentals.

RE: Quality of new Arctic Fox TC

.... I am waiting for someone to develop a clear spray sealer .... As seen on TV.... But wait, there's more... (The above links are meant to be for amusement purposes only. No direct evidence or correlation to an actual clear spray sealer for the use on RV's to make them totally and entirely waterproof is express or intended. ) ;) :B

RE: A Very Touching Movie

Memorial Day with James Cromwell. A story about a boy and his grandfather. Two generations of soldiers, two generations of war. I remember when I was about 13, I asked my father about the rifle and the sword with the funny character inscriptions(Japanese lettering)on them that he stored in our basement back home. It was the only time I saw him well up about the war. If you watch the movie you'll know what I mean.

RE: Hot water tank

Remember to "burp" the city water inlet as part of winterization too.

RE: Hot water tank

There is some water left in the tank when draining... how much? I do not know. But I have never worried about getting every last drop out before winterizing. My normal MO was to open the hot water tank plug on the last day of every camping trip to let any water that was in there to escape by virtue of the motions when driving on the way home. When I would winterize, I would close the by-pass valves, pump in the RVAF and screw the plug back in only a thread or two just to only hold it in place to inhibit insect from trying to get in.

RE: Roof sealant

I checked out the NuFlex 311 white sealant as suggested by member ronbiel as I had not heard of that brand before. Seems like a respectable product, albeit quite a bit more costly! It is self-leveling which is what is good for a roof application. Do not use self-leveling on the sides of the RV... it might end up looking like it is owned by Salvador Dali (LOL.) Also- whatever you do...DO NOT USE SILICON SEALER!

RE: Roof sealant

In my opinion, use butyl tape between the flange of the skylight and the roof. Then use Dicir Self Leveling (tube) to go over the assembly once it is installed. When you set the light (with the butyl tape) let it set overnight since the putty will tend to seep out. Once the oozing has subsided, then apply the Dicor. Use the self leveling because it will set up nice and even without needing to use a putty knife to monkey it around.

RE: Ham License renewal question...?

Ham License renewal question...?

So, my ham license is set to expire in a couple of weeks and I go on-line to do the renewal process. It is the first time renewing since obtaining the license. It seems as if it went through with no hiccups and I got a confirmation number indicating that it has been "successfully submitted." But I am confused... it did not ask for a credit card, bank or check number to process a renewal. Are Ham License renewals free? After all, the FCC is a gubmint agency and have a hard time believing there is no cost to renew. Heck, it even say "No application or regulatory fees are required!" What am I missing? I feel as if the gubmint is doing something down my neck and telling me it raining... they do not do anything for free.

Pensacola area... stuff to do?

I need to fly into Pensacola next week for work. Have a sister who lives nearby and instead of flying home right away the next day I am going to take a looong weekend and spend some time there. Have a motorcycle rented for a couple days and am looking for idea destinations to make a couple of separate day trips... Looking for ideas of places to ride to, spend some time and return back. Points of interest, museums, historical areas, etc... Looking primarily to ride with a destination as a an excuse. ...what recommendations do you have... 200 to 300-ish miles.
