RE: Special offer RV magazine

"That 1st issue seemed more like a food or travel mag. Sad." Exactly how I felt. A food column by Robert Irving? What's next? Campground fashion tips from Kim Kardashian?

RE: Special offer RV magazine

We received our "Premier Issue" of RV Magazine yesterday. Unimpressed would be an understatement. I didn't realize that Marcus Lemonis would be the publisher. Oh well, I've wasted $15 before in my life.

RE: RV Magazine Subscription

I've had qualms about renewing Trailer Life. Most issues now are less than 60 pages. Eliminate the advertising and we're down to what? 20 pages. It comes. I blow through the entire issue in about 30 minutes. Have I wasted $18/year on other things with less value? Probably. But the articles are repetitive and I find I have less and less interest in 15,000 lb campers at close to $50,000.

RE: Question about exiting in an emergency

I apparently worded my initial post poorly. I know to get out as early as possible, as quickly as possible, by any means possible. My question is: Why isn't the exit designed by the manufacturer to be more user friendly for the poor victim who is confused, not prepared, incapacitated, or a minor? The exit procedure should be simple and intuitive. Since idiot proof is impossible, at least make it idiot helpful.

Question about exiting in an emergency

The deadbolt latch on the door of my Eagle is small, black, recessed and can be covered by the bug shield. If I haven't had my coffee in the morning I fumble and stumble trying to unlock it. So what happens if it's the middle of the night and I've got flames licking my a$$. Brick and mortar building codes require panic bars. The dead bolts on a house are larger and prominent. Why is an RV different? I can't imagine trying to exit through the emergency window exit, and basic firefighting procedure whenever possible is to "take 'em out the same way they went in. Why isn't it a RVIA standard to make unlocking the deadbolt more user friendly in an emergency?

RE: Tested your LP detector lately?

Spray on sunscreen will also set them off. Not that it ever happened to me and the grandkids. "What's that noise Grampa?"

RE: Truck flooded

I had a friend who serviced fd pagers. When someone called and said they dropped their pager into water he'd ask, "Toilet (ie. fresh water)? Bring it in and I'll look at it. Ocean (ie. salt water)? Who do I bill the new pager to?" Either way I'd consider the truck totaled. Remember the adjusters don't pay out of their own pocket, but I've been told they have a monthly budget and if they routinely exceed their budget, it's reflected in their job performance reviews. Don't let the adjuster bully you just to get a gold star at his next review.

RE: Do you use glass plates ?

For all the folks using Corelle, be SURE they are stored low and secured when moving. We had an upper cabinet door open and broke 6 Corelle pieces. They don't break easily, but when they do, they SHATTER. We swept, vacuumed, damp mopped, and were still picked up Corelle slivers for months.

RE: Oklahoma Is OK

What is the rivalry with OK and NB? I saw a bumper sticker on a car once that said something like: If NB was hell and I owned OK, I would rent out OK and live in hell. I worked for a while at the New London Sub Base and had a sailor say to me one hot day, "I'm not scared of going to hell, I spent a summer in Oklahoma." We visited Tulsa in May and thought it was great. Don't know about Aug.
