RE: Got the bugs off...

Nice job. Just did the same thing, except I set up my "Hillbilly Staging" (1 six foot ladder with the 5th rung built up 4 inches on each side then slide with a 2x10 across to clear the hood). I am able to reach that difficult upper center section so I don't have to go up on the roof and hang down head first. Makes putting your favorite anti bug splatter wax/coating on (I use Rejex) much easier too.

RE: 2 sided screen door latch handle

Well Amazon delivered the Camco screen door opener yesterday. I followed the directions, except for dropping the hole down 1/4 of an inch on suggestions from the Amazon reviews of this product. The thing certainly isn't fancy but it works as intended. Now for the acid test. We're heading out to Scusset Beach State Reservation here in Ma. for four days starting this coming Thursday. We'll see how it can handle the action of the RV front lines.

RE: 2 sided screen door latch handle

Dutch. Great suggestion. Looks like just what's needed. I'll do an update after I install it.

2 sided screen door latch handle

My last class C had a Dexter screen door and a latch handle in both sides and a slide panel to provide access to the main door when both are closed. Nice. The new class C has one latch handle on the outside. I don't really like this set up. I've been searching for a changeover kit that has the inside and outside latch handles but so far I can't find anything. Is there such a changeover kit available?

RE: New England Travel

We live in Massachusetts. My wife and I are in full quarantine waiting for our covid 19 test results. We returned from a 25 day Midwest road trip yesterday (Aug 15) at around 8am. We had our test set up at a local hospital for yesterday too. Those tests cost us $150 each which we had to pay out of our pocket. Results in 24 to 72 hours. We'll see. Until we get the results we must fully quarantine. We filled out the required Mass travel form, and have been getting text messages from the state reminding us of the returning traveler requirements. My opinion on these rules really don't matter though. I just don't want to get fined $500 per day for not following them.. Before entering this state I would strongly suggest you look up these Mass travel rules that took effect Aug 1. Ok. To be fair. We took our tests yesterday aug 15, at 1020am. We just received our negative results at 305pm today, aug 16. I am impressed.

RE: Another Mile, Another Day

I too am with the 150-225 miles per day, interstate avoiding, camp set up by 200pm posters. I jump on the interstate to escape this east coast madness after that it's back roads,small towns and Mom and Pop Campgrounds as much as possible.

RE: I-81 Road Work South of I-80 in Pennsylvania

Thanks that is a handy website.

I-81 Road Work South of I-80 in Pennsylvania

I'm planning to head southbound through this area with My class C no tow. Looking at Google maps seems like the work is on the northbound side. Is that the case? We'll be leaving from the Tri State RV Park in Matamoras PA next Wednesday July 23 and I can just take Rt 209 through the Delaware Water Gap and pick up I-81 south of the work area. Longer ride but better than sitting in stopped traffic.

RE: trip to Idaho

If you are near the southern area of the state "Craters of the Moon" national monument is very interesting. Plenty of camping just up the road in Arco.

RE: Which Michelin for Class C

I was going to replace the Michelin M/S2's on my 22ft Class C with a set of Michelin Agilis Cross Country tires. The FMCA tire program offered a good discount for these Michelin tires. Then I traded in this RV and bought a 2020 Jayco 26XD. This year Jayco is running Hankook Dyna Pro HT 225/75r/16 115/112S M/S tires. I just picked this RV up last week and haven't put any miles on it yet, but I thought this information might help.

RE: % bleach to sanitize fresh water tanks

Related Question. Do you guys drain and isolate your hot water tank or sanitize that too..

RE: Level Mate Pro

I can seek a you would think that. I should never post until after my first cup of coffee!!! My brain isn't level yet..LOL!

RE: Level Mate Pro

Yes I use the manual level method. Works fine as I explained. I'm wondering about the "Level Mate Pro".

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..
