Level Mate Pro

Anybody using this system to level their RV? I had a friend tell me about it and it sure looks interesting. I don't have auto levelers so I use wood blocks and 2 2X10''x3ft ramp to level. I pull in, eyeball the RV then put the blocks down where I think they are needed. I've gotten good at it but sometimes there is a site that I just can't figure out. So I good enough it. This is supposed to let me know how much each wheel needs to be adjusted. Sounds interesting.

RE: Still no Stimulus Payment I found this yesterday. I never tried to post an internet address before so I don't know if this thing will work. According to the article, money will be released for people,(lowest income first) who receive SSI, VA, and Railroad Retirement on May 1. Folks that have an "adjusted gross income" of $10,000 or less on the week of April 24.. Then the next week for people with "AGI" of $10,001 to $20,000 then next week $20,001 to $30,000 and so on. This was posted by Forbes yesterday Here is the schedule from the article. Taxpayers who have the lowest annual adjusted gross income as reported on their 2018 or 2019 tax return will receive their checks first. Here is the planned weekly schedule (week-ending dates): • Less than $10,000: April 24 • $10,001 - $20,000: May 1 • $20,001 - $30,000: May 8 • $30,001 - $40,000: May 15 • $40,001 - $50,000: May 22 • $50,001 - $60,000: May 29 • $60,001 - $70,000: June 5 • $70,001 - $80,000: June 12 • $80,001 - $90,000: June 19 • $90,001 - $100,000: June 26 • $100,001 - $110,000: July 3 • $110,001 - $120,000: July 10 • $120,001 - $130,000: July 17 • $130,001- $140,000: July 24

RE: RV cover

I've have the "Elements Premium all Climate" just finished the 4th year with it. I should be able to get 1 more year out of it. I think that because it just happened to be a very tight fit made it last this long. I tape old cut up bath towels around the usual corners and pull the bottom straps just tight enough to let the top settle when the snow piles up. Because of the tight fit, there hasn't been any damage from rubbing. I usually put it on mid November and off at the end of March.

RE: Newport Rhode Island

2x on the Navy campground. It's the Carr Point Recreational Area off the Burma Rd at the Melville/Newport line. Absolutely one of the most scenic and private spots in southern New England. As mentioned open to active duty and retired military personel only.

New Cell Phone Choice

So I'm finally thinking about replacing my old trusty Samsung G5. I've had it for 5 years now. It's been good to us. Survived 4 cross country trips and taken hundreds of pictures. I have 2 reasons for wanting to update my phone. First is to be able to "Hot Spot". I bought the one I have from Straight Talk and the hot spot and teathering are disabled. Second I would like a better camera. I've been researching Samsung G7 and G8 phones and these 2 seem to fill the bill (I want to stay under $600) however I'm seeing G7 problems with the screen breaking easily, and the battery overheating. G8 screen breaking easily and fingerprint unlock and face recognition trouble. I use our phone for calls, texting, GPS/maps, light internet and pictures. My wife uses the it for that Facebook thing. No gaming or streaming movies. As I mentioned having hot spot is important. Which I guess all the phones have now. So are these complaints about the Samsung phones I mentioned "sour grapes" and don't worry about it, or should I consider another brand, which I have absolutely no clue about. Thanks for your patience with my lack of knowledge on this. Just would like some ideas. Oh the size needs to be near the G5. DW takes most of the pictures and a bigger phone will end up be difficult for her.

RE: What meal to cook next

The market just stocked their freezer with seafood. It has been empty for 3 or 4 weeks. Grabbed a bag of jumbo shrimp, and some swordfish steaks. Today we pan fried the swordfish and made up pan fried potatoes with fresh asparagus spears that I topped off with some hollandaise sauce (McCormicks but what ta heck) was great. Tomorrow we'll cook up the shrimp..

RE: Stimulus Check , what are you going to do with yours ?

As soon as these travel restrictions are lifted, we are jumping in the RV and heading west ( from Seekonk Ma) to the New Mexico and Colorado area. If we do receive any money it will go into our little travel stash and will be used to pay for our camping sites and supplies along the way. We usually stay at private campgrounds so we will try to stock up and buy a little more of the assorted stuff (t-shirts and small gifts) at the camp stores..

What meal to cook next

Well we're beginning to run out of ideas. Pretty much have been cooking up our favorite "on the road" meals. Starting to get a bit boring. Here is our list: Hamburg/mash potatoes/veg/gravy, Pork Chops/pasta/veg/with or without gravy, Pasta with meat sauce, Pot roast, Beef stew, Chicken/Turkey/mash potatoes,veg,gravy, and chix/turkey soup. Variations of the above... Didn't list sandwiches or breakfast, just main meals. We have access to the grocery store and plenty of time.. As always suggestions are greatly appreciated.

2x on CoPilot. I loaded the App to my cell phone then had DW drive me around in the car with it on to see how it worked. I was satisfied so I bought the RV addition for $29.99. The RV App is a one year subscription. In my case I bought a Samsung 8" TAB A (on sale) and loaded the RV app to that. I also picked up a dash mount and tab holder from ProClip USA. One thing though, I had to do some research and spend a couple of days figuring out how to get it to work. Forgot to add...I always carry an Truck Atlas and fold up paper maps. Look up my route the night before and check for problems.

RE: closures

I just checked out Their home page has information on how they are handling this situation. 2x on checking the campground web sites or calling ahead.

RE: Route 64 New Mexico

Excellent, thanks. As I mentioned, we are planning on 2 or 3 days at the Angle Fire RV Resort, so we can drive around the "Enchanted Circle" then to the Aztec Ruins for 2 days. 2 years ago we spent 2 weeks exploring the southern part of the State, Carlsbad, Roswell, Silver City. Wonderful area.

Route 64 New Mexico

In late June I'm planning to pick up Rt 64 at Cimarron NM and follow it to Shiprock. Stop for 2 days in Angle Fire to run the Cimarron Loop, Rt 38 and 522. Then Rt 64 to the Aztec Ruins, and on to Shiprock. Our destination is Mesa Verde for a few days. I'll be traveling in our Jayco 27n Class C. We have no real time frame. Are these roads ok with this RV? On another thread I was advised against Rt 82 in Colorado. I appreciate this advise and changed my plans.Thought I'd run this leg of our trip by the group for similar thoughts. Mountain roads and elevation and unguarded dropoffs are ok. Hairpin, single lane blind spots that might require me to back up to let an opposing vehicle pass would cause me to seek an alternate route.

RE: Favorite campground on the Gunnison River

Great info. I appreciate it. I'm glad I posted about Rt 82. Will avoid it. This suggestion on avoiding Rt 82 has prompted me to go over my Routes heading into Mesa Verde. Looks like research and a new post!!! Thanks again.

RE: Favorite campground on the Gunnison River

Thanks Bussippper. We're planning on 4 or 5 days at Mesa Verde NP then it's into poke mode. Ghost Towns, that are accessible with our RV, are the theme for this trip. After Mesa Verde, and all these plans are subject to change at a moments notice, I was thinking of spending a night at Silverton then see if the roads will allow us to make it to Eureka, camp there then if conditions permit on to Animas Forks, then back to Silverton. Then, as you mentioned, Ouray and Ridgway enroute the Curecanti Recreation area, Gunnison river. Find a good camp there and then a couple day trips. Now we would like to do the Gunnison Gorge boat trip, but we might move to the South rim Campground, not sure. Then head north to Marble and Crystal and loop to Buena Vista via Rt 82 and St Elmo's.

Favorite campground on the Gunnison River

I've checked out the various campgrounds on the Gunnison River between Sapinero and Gunnison. Campgroundreviews, Google and the others seem to rate them as OK. I'm wondering if any of you folks have any favorites, private, state or whatever, in that area. We're planning to stay in the area for about a week and have no problem bouncing from one place to another to take in the different sights. We will be traveling in our Class C no tow. We will be working our way north to the South Rim Black Canyon campground then over to Buena Vista to visit St Elmo's. Will be in Colorado for the month of July.

RE: The Coronavirus

We're, DW and I, heading out for 10 weeks beginning June 16. We tend to camp at off the beaten track locations anyway and as stated here will practice prudent hygiene so I don't see a problem. We'll be a little more careful when picking up supplies and visiting interesting shops along our route. We will just continue to be aware of our surroundings and to live and enjoy life.
