RE: What do you leave behind when gone for the day?

We've seen people leave a chair, another had a sign made that said "occupied" and we've been at campgrounds that provided a sign or orange cones for campers to use.

RE: School me in public parks camping...

Corp of Engineer Parks are nice. Some have full-hookups, others have water and electric with a dump station , sites are spaced further apart than other types of campgrounds and if you are over 60 and purchase a senior pass you get 50% off the camping fees. This discount card is also good for entry fees in national parks, discounts in forest service parks. Campground reviews often lists these parks in the areas where located with information and a link to their website.

RE: Back hurting from bed in travel trailer - need advice please

Our bed/mattress is in a slide and is a short queen, we cannot use a regular queen size either as it has to snug up against the closet doors to put the slide all the way in. We have a regular mattress with a foam topper on top of it. Are you sure you don't have a bed that is too.... soft with all the layers you have. That won't keep your spine aligned correctly and areas will be sunk in too deep. Our topper is a 5" topper with gel layer. Even so, after 9 yrs the base mattress is getting worn out and in need of replacement as it is starting to get too soft to offer the needed support under the memory foam. If that base mattress is not good, the memory foam on top may not help.

RE: Atwood waterheater wont light

Ours worked on electric, but would not light on gas. It was the circuit board. Works great now.

RE: SD Online drivers license renewal

Yes, we already have that gold star and we are within 180 days now, but when I put our license # in on the online renewal check, it just says we are not eligible to renew at this time. Do you have to call if you want to do it early? Ours isn't up to renew until February, and we sure don't want to have to go there in February. We should be eligible as we went in person to get the license and this would be our first renewal.

RE: Class A stuck next to house!

We did that same thing in my brother's yard in MI after storing our class A for the winter. Buried it to the axles. Winched out at a cost of $350 and that was 9 years ago. We laugh now, but it wasn't too funny while it was happening.

RE: Water in furnace bay

Ours did that! It was leaking in from the rooftop refrigerator vent, running down to the outside compartment, flooding it and then running down into the area below the furnace. We used Etrnabond Tape and sealed everything on the roof.

Is there anyone here with a SD residency who has renewed their drivers license thru the new online renewal in SD?

RE: Insuring your household while full time RVing

Purchase a full-timers rv policy and add coverage for the contents you have with you. An umbrella policy is for liability coverage, not to cover contents in storage. In some states, you could take out a renters insurance policy at the storage facility address for coverage, but in others no. Another option is store your items at a friend or relatives in a rented area like the basement, spare bedroom and have a renters policy written for you at that location. You should draw up a rental contract for the area even if the rent is a minimal amount.

RE: Traveling with glass

We carry the same stuff as we had at home, glass glasses, glass jars, glass casserole and serving dishes etc. I have cupboards lined with the waffle weave shelf liner and the pantry keeps any jars secure as the shelves have space in a row for 1 can/jar and is not extra big for them to even move around. The front lip is upturned a little which keeps them from moving forward against the cabinet door. 9 years full-time, nothing has ever broken.

RE: Tornado hits Carolina camp ground

The hurricane did indeed spawn tornadoes over land. It's been on the news.

RE: Winter in Northern OK

Get the roll of insulated reflectix for your windshield, a lot of cold comes in thru that single pane glass. Also a lot of condensation on the inside when it's cold out. The reflectix helps with both of those things. Insulated pillows for vents to help keep heat from escaping thru those plastic covers. We use an electric heater to supplement the propane furnace. Never spent a winter in N Oklahoma, but have been much further south and been cold.

RE: Annual maintenances: wise, necessary, waste of money?

No has has stated this, but if your water heater is an atwood, there is no anode rod to worry about. We often have high amounts of lime in the water, so we tend to drain our water heater 2-3 times a year. Sometimes we are amazed at the clumps of lime that come out.

RE: Broken frameless window

You may want to check with your insurance. The repair may be covered under your comprehensive coverage minus any deductible you may have.

RE: Are my A/C's working correctly?

We spend a summer in N Mex sitting in the sun at about 5,000 elevation. Usual daytime temp was 95 - 108. The windshield is the biggest culprit for letting heat into the rv, even with curtains drawn. Get the reflectix for the windshield. It is sold in large rolls especially for motorhomes. That will make about a 10 degree difference. Keep shades drawn, have a fan moving the air around and you will be cooler. We also have insulation pillows in our vents to keep the heat of the sun from coming thru them. Skylight doesn't seem to be a problem with it's two layers. We are 36' with 2 13,500 btu and only ran the 2nd A/C late afternoon when the sun was shining on 1 side of the motorhome and onto the windshield. We were comfortable.

RE: Late check out

I believe he stated check-in time is 3pm and even with his extended time he was gone by 12:55, so he was gone well before check-in time and the next campers were definitely early.

RE: Winter Route to South Texas

We go down the east side of TX , cut over to Waco and down 77 to Victoria. From there either over to the coast, or continue south on 77. We miss the traffic in all the large cities.

RE: Fridge in new camper not working...

Sounds like maybe a loose connection somewhere, or a bad circuit board.

RE: Generator keeps shutting off

Also let it cool and check very well for any type of bird/mouse nest. Ours was doing that and we found a critter nest up behind where it wasn't very visable. It was causing the generator to overheat and shut down. Also, check your air filer and fuel filters. You can let your frig get cold and then shut it off for an hour or so, your food will be fine. If you aren't opening and closing the door a lot it will stay cold for a few hours. At least until you figure out what's going on.

RE: anybody ever install wallpaper inside their RV?

I used prepasted, but purchased seperately the vinyl on vinyl paste which is usually used to put a border over vinyl wallpaper. It's been up at least 8 years, no loose edges.
