RE: HELP: Fridge issues and trip tmw!

UPDATE: the guys at National RV refrigeration got me in at 8am as promised. Diagnosis was bad cooling unit. Dropped the trailer and had breakfast and did some sightseeing in Shipshewana, job was all done by noon. Replaced the cooling unit, replaced the fan, added a baffle and a second cooling fan to help air circulation since the fridge is in a slide room. Made it to our camping trip only a few hours late. Fridge this morning was at 37, freezer at -2. Out the door with tax for under $700. Bonus is now the unit hasbeen registered with Dometic as refurbed and now has a 3 year manufacturers warranty. That is good service from Natl fridge, and a great price too. Fridge likely cools better than new! Jerry X2 - BONUS - the mountains will be BLUE if ever put in ! ! ! Happy for the good ending to that..

RE: Water Pressure Regulator

LOTS of things to "Worry" about. Having your water shut off at night is not one of them. May as well turn off the propane tanks as well. But that would mean you could get cold. OK then I will use a small electric heater. OH NO that could get knocked over by the dog and the shutoff may not work and catch the RV on fire. Should I mention not going outside because the sky could........., naw I may take that risk. I wear my hard hat for those occasions ! !

RE: Theoretical heights.

There's usually an AC on top of that roof that you haven't accounted for Possibly. We were looking at a minisplit instead to go on a side or something. There are width restrictions as well... IF you are going to put a MINI split on the side, that will also take up much needed living width space.... Wouldn't it be easier, and safer to buy a totaled out/salvage unit and rebuild it from ground up? At least you would have the BONES/structure already to work with...

RE: No shortage of RVs

I am in VA for work and there are 3 RV dealers around the corner from each other… A Camping World, General RV, and an Airstream dealer…. ALL 3 are PACKED with new equipment , perhaps the CW a bit more than the other 2.. The road that goes between the stores is about 1/4 mile long and that is lined on 1 side from end to end with new RV’s….

RE: Covid in RV Parks

If the park owner is going around saying "see that guy there, he has Covid", then he should be responsible (rather than fear mongering) and simply inform residents as follows: We currently have a case of Covid at this park. Please use established protocals to minimize the risk of spreading/getting Covid. If you have symptoms, please get yourself tested. Thank you, Management Doing this would allow people to take precautions as they see fit, self-isolate if they are at high risk, and not become a gossip. X2 ! ! That is how we handle any positive cases at our facilities…. We don’t run around saying - stay away from John Doe, he is positive…..,..

RE: Covid in RV Parks

Your doc is wrong, that is another reason people are so unsure of this thing… … MISINFORMATION having the flu WILL NOT cause a POSITIVE COVID test… * Can you have the flu and COVID-19 at the same time? Yes. It is possible to have flu as well as other respiratory illnesses including COVID-19 at the same time. Health experts are still studying how common this can be. *Fact check: A cold, the flu or a flu shot won't cause positive tests for novel coronavirus Camille Caldera USA TODAY COVID-19 vs. Flu: What’s the Difference? Medical experts say that it may be very hard to tell the difference between influenza and COVID. Therefore, although we outline the differences below, it is recommended to call your doctor to ensure the diagnosis and that you take the proper steps. Even though the flu and COVID-19 are caused by two totally different viruses, they share a number of symptoms: Fever Fatigue Cough Sore throat Runny nose Shortness of breath Body aches Headaches Vomiting Diarrhea There are, however, two distinct differences between the flu and the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. https://cdn2.webdamdb.com/1280_cpNhcsNKnav4.png?1610377919 What to Do if You Think You Have the Flu, COVID-19 — or Both Yes, it’s possible to test positive for the flu and COVID-19 at the same time, but experts say the chances of having a coinfection are very, very low. If you find yourself experiencing any of the symptoms discussed in this article, here’s a game plan for how to quickly determine a diagnosis. Talk to your doctor. If you’re coming down with a telltale sign of COVID-19 or the flu, seek medical care. Experts say it’s a good idea to put on a mask and self-isolate from your family if you have symptoms, to play it safe. Get tested. Experts agree that it’s important to be tested as quickly as possible for COVID-19 and flu. Here’s some good news: The nose swab can be used to test for both COVID-19 and the flu. Schedule an appointment with your doctor or local health clinic, or visit an urgent care center where tests should be available. Start treatment. After a diagnosis, move forward with the appropriate treatment. For the flu, the gold standard is an antiviral drug that your doctor might prescribe which helps to lessen the severity of symptoms and shorten duration of the illness. For milder cases of COVID-19, most people can recover at home by monitoring their symptoms, resting, and drinking fluids. If you are having trouble breathing, persistent pain, chest pressure, new confusion, an inability to wake or stay awake, or bluish lips or face, seek emergency medical care immediately.

RE: Covid in RV Parks

Keep in mind that if you have the flu or Covid, a Covid test will produce a positive Covid result. It's really hard for anyone to tell the difference so you have to look to your symptoms (loss of taste and/or smell being the biggie) to figure out what kind of sick you actually are. Wait… What? Are you trying to say that if I get sick with the flu and take a Covid test, I am going to test positive? I am no scientist nor am I a doctor but I know for a fact that’s wrong . That comment right there is part of the reason why nobody has a darn clue with what the hell is going on with covid, Too much wrong information being spread in many different forms

You will love the 12" display in the center stack. Ford did and excellent job of making it look like it belongs there! I do like it, they did make it look like it belongs and not over powering, or an after thought
