RE: Rvers beware

Let’s see.... should I read the actual text of the ordinance or watch a YouTube video interpretation about it :? I don’t have a problem with the code, but I’m pretty sure the town had a BIG problem if they had to put such a rule in place. Dave

RE: remote temperature monitoring

Do a search on MarCELL Cellular Connected Monitoring System. Dave

RE: RV toilet paper

A quick search shows Georgia-Pacific is on a list of companies that support right-wing causes and should be boycotted. I guess it does make sense that a discussion about toilet paper should morph straight into politics :B. Dave

RE: AT&T Hot-spot performance?

Do you mean a Netgear hotspot? I had two Netgear Utile Explore units that kept rebooting and had connection issues. I switched to a Netgear 4G LTE Modem and a tp-link router and they work great. Dave

RE: Tool chest in MHbasement

When we moved onto a boat where doing your own maintenance is not an option and space is at a real premium, I elected to go with a Nantucket Tool Bag. https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0701/8393/products/Nantucket_Bags_Large_White_2_300x300.png?v=1509581690. I carried tools to fix anything on the boat in that bag, and still do. Now it lives in my Jeep along with my Makita 12v drill set bag. When we hit the road they both go into the basement of our Class B. Dave

RE: AT&T/Direct TV is Now Losing Over 8500 Customers Per Day

What is everyone else buying brand wise for whale oil? Days are getting short need to fill the lamps up.Here on Nantucket we still hunt our own :B Back to sat TV... I just had AT&T install another TV in our stick house yesterday. I use their cell network for Internet and Directv. It’s a 100 bucks a month cheaper than Comcast and besides, I hate Comcast. We do not have OTA where we live and I imagine there are many across the country in the same boat. Dave

RE: Real small motor homes; value?

Yes, they are expensive in comparison to other RV types. But for some they are worth it.. That pretty much sums it up. I’ve had 5 different RVs and have traveled a lot of miles. Our Sprinter is the most fun of them all and now suits our needs perfectly. As we were closing the deal on our Sprinter my wife pointed to a 34 foot gas class A for the same price. I asked if she wanted to look at it and her response was “no way”. Different strokes for different folks. Dave

RE: What Did You Do To Your Class B Today ?

Taking a ride and adding biocide and a gallon of fuel to wash it down before finally parking in my new barn I noticed the check engine light came on. Took the coach to my local guy and he read a stuck EGR. He reset it and I made it home without a recurrence. If it happens on the next 6 week exercise trip I’ll have him fix it but hopefully it won’t happen until I get near my Mercedes dealer in Florida next winter where I can get warranty service! Dave

RE: Bike rack on Motorhome ladder

Your MH is a 2018 and new, your ladder mounts never had a chance to rust. M.i think if you had read my entire post you would see that my 2018 uses a receiver hitch. I carried bikes on a ladder on my Country Coach which was 5 years old when I bought it and then put on 30k miles. I do agree that storing them inside is best. On our boat we had folding bikes we stored in the laz. Dave

RE: Bike rack on Motorhome ladder

A static load of stepping on the ladder is much different than a dynamic load of two bikes bouncing up and down over hundreds of miles of travel.Quite amazing therefore that I carried two bikes over 30K miles on my ladder. The bigger concern was lifting the bikes to the the rack when it is mounted high enough for the bikes to clear the bumper. Since we downsized and don't need to tow a vehicle I switched to a Yakima FullSwing receiver rack so I have easy access to the rear doors of our coach. Dave

RE: To DP or not DP

It was a joke but my bad... I need to remember that without the Safety Police the gene pool would be self-cleansing. Dave

RE: To DP or not DP

Yea now If I could only get under my coach to get to air line so I can install that cylinder I got from you. Isn’t that what air bags are for? :B Dave

RE: What Did You Do To Your Class B Today ?

Well, better late than never... drained the gray and black tanks after our late-March return from Florida, winterized the otherwise drained water system, ran the generator and A/C... and exercised the stereo. As our travels dictate, we always come home with a day of two of tank usage and no easy dump site. I bought a 6 gallon boat toilet and dump into the bottom half then down the stick-house toilet. Takes me back to my early boating days. In the next day or two we will go for a ride to get the rust off the brakes, find diesel so I can add a bit of biocide to the tank and wash it down. Then the coach gets a bath and goes into its new home, a barn with a 12 foot ceiling. Dave

RE: Switch to houseboat?

My first thought would be how boring it might become? How restrictive it could be, depending on anchoring/riparian laws. And having kept a boat at a marina for a few years, how stunningly expensive it could be for repairs, services, etc. Having done it... sold a 36 foot DP and bought a 49 foot trawler and traveled all of the East Coast I have to agree on the “stunningly expensive” part of boating. I had 30 years of on water experience and 70,000+ miles of North America Rving. I wouldn’t trade either experience for anything, but there are big differences. IMHO boating, while much cheaper for overnights and free for water and pump outs, makes up for it big time in storage and repairs. And then there’s the stress factor. RV have a crisis? Call for service and check into a hotel. (I never experienced this bad a crisis, but I’m pretty handy). Boat water pump dies... can’t pump out the waste tank... engine dead. Bigger deal!!! Loved the boat. Loved the experiences. DW asked how we simplify. Sold the boat, bought a Class B. Aaahhhh. Simplified. Dave

RE: Drawing water from a lake

I think the OP's primary interest is not swallowing grit or things doing the backstroke, Correct because he drinks the lake water all the time. It is much easier for posters to skip reading the thread and simply post their opinion. :B Dave

RE: no power from generator

How long did you wait before deciding you had no juice. My generator runs for a minute or two before the transfer will automatically occur. Dave

RE: Tire Dealer trying to sell me older tires, what do I do?

HOWEVER, the company I used to work for had data that indicated that there was no difference between properly stored 3 year old tires and freshly made. So how do you know if they were "Properly Stored". :h The same way you know that some migrant worker did not take a whiz on the lettuce that's on your sandwich. :B :W Almost sprayed the iced tea I was drinking! :B Dave
