RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

I've noticed here in TX that there are people from the 1st groups that haven't received their vaccines, because NONE are being supplied to the rural areas. Meantime the eligibility rules have made 2 more groups eligible, but still NO VACCINES. Everything is going to the large cities. This county has 20,000 residents and has received 200 doses, and that was in early December.

RE: 4 degrees in Dallas!

Millions without power or heat in TX now and the extreme cold continues with another storm Tues night/Wed morning. At least we have a generator in the RV and would be okay even if power went out. It's single digits here too. Furnace run constantly.

RE: Not Crazy About Snow and Cold

Originally from MI, full-time and in S Central TX freezing. We have wind, snow, sleet ice and this is just like being in MI. Single digits and have been above freezing for a couple days now. Can't wait for next week.

RE: ..Looking for a new air compressor for the MH tires etc..

I guess it depends on how high psi you need. We have a Porter Cable pancake compressor that will handle up to 150 psi. We have a motorhome.

RE: surge protector and water filters

We have a Progressive Industries device and use the larger blue whole house water filter. All water goes thru it. We have only had to purchase water for potable purposes in some areas of the south. Water elsewhere has been fine and we usually drink tap water, and have good well water at our summer location.

RE: Short Term Freezing Weather Tips?

We are also in TX south of Austin a couple hours. Supposed to get down to 7-8 degrees here and daytime highs are still below freezing. Water froze overnight 2 nights ago, then thawed during the day. It was disconnected and we run off the tank/pump. Furnace set at 60 at night. We shouldn't have a problem, but 19 is the lowest we have been at before with daytime above freezing. Looking at 3 days freezing or below here now. Can't wait for sunshine !!!

RE: Water hose for fresh water hook up

We have had good luck with the water hoses from Camco. Note I did say hoses. You have to remember that they often lay in the sun which will have an affect on how long they last. We are on our 3rd one in 10 years and are full-time.

RE: Smaller stove burner?

I have a diffuser I use for long low slow cooking. Mine turns down to barely a flame, but it still will make liquid boil after a long period of time.

RE: 2 nights required

Most parks do require a 2 night minimum on weekends and have for quite some time, at least any that we have been at. The county park where we are in the summer requires 2 nights for every reservation.

RE: Onan surging/backfiring. Brand new fuel pump/filter/carb

As someone else mention, check the air filter. Ours did that once and that is what it was.

RE: Class A travel without interstates

We travel off the x-ways as much as possible. Usually on US highways, state and county roads. We haven't had any problems and we miss the big cities. We also have never paid a toll in 10 years.

RE: Daschund legs

We previously had a doxie with a back problem. Both time it got bad the vet injected steroids to reduce swelling, bed rest other than potty and meal time and no jumping up or down and no steps. The 2nd time he couldn't walk at all, but it worked and he was still walking when he passed from old age. The problem is their back. Common problem for them.

RE: What is the most efficient way to bypass Chicago?

The ferry can't be any more expensive than what you would spend on fuel to drive there . I'd consider it.

RE: Fl to Mo thoughts

We take US60 across MO also - pretty flat and nice road. Not a lot of traffic.

RE: Dometic refrigerator frost and ice

I have a Norcold 1200 4 dr and I just shut it off, put the food in the big cooler and it defrost and water runs out the tray to the outside. Only takes a couple of hours. I do have to soak water up off the freezer bottoms though. Good time to clean it. We added one of the small fans on the rt side fin area and it has helped a lot. That was the area where the ice started all the time.

RE: Filling large propane tank on the road

We put an extend a stay valve on our onboard tank and have a 20# tank that we run off from, when it runs out, we switch the valve back to the big tank and we go fill the 20# tank. Saves us driving to get propane. Tractor Supply has great prices( not all locations have propane) When we are traveling, we then stop and fill the onboard tank. We also use electric heaters to supplement the furnace. Other than first thing in the morning, the furnace usually doesn't run during the day as the electric heaters keep us warm enough.

RE: Stimulus Payment Questions

Do you receive direct deposits from social security or some other government program? If you do, you should automatically receive it.

RE: Manual Carefree Colorado Awning issue

We've had springs break and there is no way you would not hear that happen. The springs do get old and have loose tension. We've replaced ours once but it's getting to the point again where we are using the awning hook to push up on the roller, it rolls up a little, push again, rolls up more, push again etc until toward the end it finally closes all the way.
