RE: Mid of the nights stuff and other things by RVers

The orange version is the breakfast drink of the astronauts! height=300 width=300 Horrible stuff, by the way.

RE: Slide out awnings yay or nay?

Overall another vote FOR the awnings. The TT w/slides didn't have them; came with the 5er and they came with the coach. Haven't yet been in situation where leaves or stuff gets blown in sideways on top of the slides. Appreciate having one less campground departure step to take.

RE: Question -- "It's Full" Gifts for RVers

Thanks, NOW I get it. Haven't seen any of those Lampoon movies. "Tasteless" is the word I was looking for but posted anyway. You younger folk, this is what you're coming to. It's inevitable.

Question -- "It's Full" Gifts for RVers

What's with it on all the "S**tter's Full" stuff I see at Amazon, Ebay, etc? Someone please explain. I don't get it. What kind of gift is that for an RVer? In the first place it doesn't make a bit of sense to me (or to any of the other RVers I've asked about it). Is it some kind of private insider joke? I'm no prude and I get and appreciate well-turned double-entendres but I also don't get anyone even offering anything that's just plain crude and senseless.

RE: How to clean the toilet flap thing...

I don't remember what it is DW got but it's marvelous for removing mildew, mold and hard water deposits. It's in a purple trigger-pump spray bottle that sprays out foam. I assume she got it at Walmart, that's where she gets 99.9% of everything.

RE: Is Socializing a Dying Thing in the RV Community?

Agree that fewer and fewer fellow campers seem to want or be able to initiate sociable contact. But I've found that once you say hello and start up a conversation very few people turn out to be unsociable. That 'Hello' (with the ubiquitous weather comments) generally leads to showing off photos of the Gkids, comparing the day trips and the aches and pains of advancing age, and often 'Hey, we just got a bundle of firewood, pull up a chair and have a beer.' I think part of it is campers who are like us, don't go camping to hang out at the campground. The RV and campgrounds are our base camp, tools we use to do what we want: riding the ATVs; fishing; visiting aquariums, zoos, museums and other area attractions. Campground-initiated activities (potlucks, pool parties, movies, dances) rarely have any interest for us. And anyway we're usually off someplace else doing whatever it is we want to do that day.

RE: Oxygenics Fury RV Handheld Shower

I do not dry camp and usually only two of us. I have the Oxygenic and due to the flow restrictions, I drilled it out to get more water. Nurse daughter turned us on to this. DW greatly dislikes dry camping and on the occasional times we're forced into it we'll 'shower' with packaged (forget brand) hospital single use 'washcloths' from the local medical supply store. x2 on the restrictor. Thankfully the WaterPik we have had a pop-out metal disk restrictor, real easy to remove. Also had a hose easily twice the length of what came in the RV.

RE: Handy Hints, Gadgets, Products & Gizmos

Was thinking about this thread just the other day and realizing I hadn't seen anything new. I haven't done it yet, but I'm considering a motion-activated light near the door for when we forget to leave our porch light on. It may have to be one that we remove when we are on the road. Does anyone have a good idea for this? We use one of those $19.95 "as-seen-on-TV" solar motion activated lights hung on a 3M command hook at easy arm height next to the door. Only takes a second to put it on or off when we park/depart.

RE: Quartzsite show

One of these days. Quartzsite's been on the list for a couple decades now but every year something's come up to postpone our RVmecca trip another year. Here's hoping for 2021.

RE: good Sam VS AARP.

Haven't run into it at a campground yet but for motel stays 90% the time we get "Oh, yes, all discounts applied"!

RE: utah activities for seniors

Plenty of places rent side-by-sides. Those things go anywhere and are loads of fun. Utah is a favorite place for us to take our RZR. THIS! Every couple years we spend a week riding our ATVs out of Richfield or Maryvale. The scenery is fantastic. The roads/trails are good, the riding is easy - at least our kind of riding, we just pokey along and enjoy the scenery. Try as hard we can we haven't been able to get ourselves lost yet.

RE: What is a good camp stove to buy now days?

Two. We carry a no-name all-stainless propane grill we got at Sam's maybe 20 years ago, use that most of the time. Also carry a 2-burner Coleman HyperFlame we use when whatever's cooking on the grill takes up most of the space. Both will run on the little quart bottles or can be hosed to a larger bottle or the coach tank low side. Both have legs that can be extended (or not). Hardly ever do any cooking inside, and what little we do is 90% warming leftovers in the microwave.

Need Help with Utility Trailer Decision

Need to get 10-12' utility trailer primarily to haul our SxS UTV behind the coach. On occasion to haul mower or small tractor for service (TV for that will be the pickup). Am I better off getting the deck made with 2x6 treated wood or with 1/4" steel diamond plate? And why? Everything else is the same except for total weight and cost, and they're so close wood vs steel it's negligible and irrelevant.

RE: Water and Gas Usage Rates

You got to experiment to find out what YOUR needs are. Boondocking 90% of our water use is toilets. Bathing when boondocking we use disposable hospital wipes, much bigger and thicker than the little packaged finger wipes. Not quite as good feeling as a real shower but quite satisfactory. I've got short hair (what hair I have left), DW has pixie-cut shortish hair, so one wipe for the body and another for the 'shampoo' works good. No dinnerware to wash, we use only paper plates & bowls, plastic or bamboo utensils. When we're out in the RV we're on vacation, neither of us want to spend any more time than absolutely necessary washing dishes. The only washables we use are the coffee mugs, DW's wine glass and my Scotch/Irish/Bourbon glass (all unbreakable plastic very thoughtfully provided by our dinosaur friends from ages ago). Cooking is one-pot, over a fire/grill or microwave. Get out there and do it. You'll do just fine.

RE: Tea Kettle

WallyWorld or Amazon. Our Wally has a surprisingly good selection of porcelain-painted designs as well as plain stainless. Amazon's probably got 100s to choose from.

RE: Anybody else have trouble packing for camping

No problem at all. TT years ago, then a 5er, now an A coach. The only thing that gets moved in/out is food and heavier/warmer outerwear if needed. Cost vs convenience we opt for the convenience of having the RV already loaded/packed to go.

RE: Oxygenics Fury RV Handheld Shower

Shower head heretic here. A shower head is a shower head. Some have one spray, others have multiple sprays. There's nothing magical that makes an Oxygenic any better or worse than any other brand. It's just another shower head.

RE: suggest a heated mattress cover

Not a mattress cover but there are 12V blankets & throws available and they're pretty reasonable. Lay over the top sheet under the blanket/quilt/whatever, turn it on a half hour before going to bed.

? Becoming a KOA Work Kamper for $

Posting here thinking the workamping section has too limited views. Becoming a KOA Work Kamper - worth the $35? Is it any better, more convenient, easier, etc, than going to one of the online sites to find positions? Retirement coming soon - less than 2 years - and the idea of workamping sounds real good. Just discovered that for $35 (plus tax of course) I can join the KOA Work Kampers. You don't work directly for the larger KOA organization, you basically contract with whatever KOA affiliated campground you choose to work.
