RE: Vertical Binocular Diplopia

I had the same as OP a few years ago from wearing contacts and having severe dry eyes. My eye doc figured out that the muscles controlling the eyes were inflamed and prescribed an anti-inflammatory drop. Went away after a week or so of drops. Never had it again.

RE: Pet Peeves long road trip

I typically drive 62 on interstates and am 36' towing a fullsize truck. The problem with pulling over to let someone merge is that by the time they're ahead of me and I can pull back into the right lane the faster traffic is zooming around the right side of me, flipping me off for going slow in the left lane, and I'm stuck there. So I seldom will pull over to let someone merge. It's their job to SAFELY merge into traffic. That means to adjust their speed so they can safely merge into the traffic flow. Quite a few times I've had mergers get PO'ed at me because they couldn't see the vehicle on the side of me blocking me from moving over.

RE: Painfully slow internet

Currently parked in the mountains between Gunnison and Montrose, CO. Our ATT phones have 0 bars, we can drive 1/2 mile to kinda make a phone call. But we have a Pepwave Max BR1 cell router with a Poyntang MIMO antenna mounted on a 1'x2' ground plane (this is very important) on the roof and are getting 1-4 bars depending on the wind :). We can get email and have slow internet but it does work. A booster would probably give us a bit better signal but probably not any faster speeds. This is on an ATT unlimited plan.

And since Facebook Marketplace is being used by more and more people here's a way to search across the USA:

RE: 220V circuit for electric dryer

High end units such as Newell have 220 Vac for the dryer and also for the stove. Been doing this since the 90's.

RE: slide vs no slide

Make certain that you can access all of the essentials with the slide in. I've seen some where the fridge, or cabinets, or even the bathroom was blocked by the slide being in. Most if not all dealers will have the slides out and grumble if you want them to pull the slides in.

RE: Best tow set up

I've been using a ReadyBrute with integrated ReadyBrake for over 10 years. Easy to hookup and works great.

RE: refrig fan

The fan blowing on the coils will also greatly reduce any frost or ice buildup on the coils. If you're in a humid area you know what I'm talking 'bout.

Look at LazyDaze. Pretty rare but there are some for sale on You may have to register and login to see the classifieds.

RE: Internet Cable Connection

Search on Amazon or other places for a flat coax cable. These are thin enough to run through a window.

RE: Older MH mpg with diesel

My 1999 36' Foretravel with Cummins M11 will get anywhere from 7 to over 10 mpg depending on terrain, winds, and whether I'm towing or not. My speed is typically 62.

RE: Lost Power on all appliances - Microwave, A/C, outlets

Make sure the "salesman switch" is not turned off. Usually by the entry door. I use diffferent colored ty-wraps to mark where to re-connect wires when doing projects. Work great.

RE: MH models with the fewest slides

If you can add a tag axle and go up to 41' here is a Newell with 2 slides. The guy who is selling it has replaced and updated many things to make it ready to travel. I know the seller and have seen this coach and it is a great buy at this price. Lots of new stuff.

RE: New Cell Phone Choice

Look at for unlocked phones, good prices, great service and quick shipping. I've had Samsungs in the past but a couple years ago bought 2 Moto X4. Really like them, was on ATT until December then switched to RedPocket.

RE: Excess butyl tape

And best to remove it when it's cold. Don't try if it's hot or been in the sun.

RE: Emergency Travel - Texas to South Georgia?

Be aware that some towns are putting curfews in place so might want to limit your travel to daylight hours only. Things are changing hourly.

RE: Roswell NM

Tatum, NM and Denver City, TX have city parks that are free with hookups. Bit of a drive but if nothing else is closer could work for you.
