RE: Any full timers use a roomba style vac?

Roomba's are an example of the classic create a need for a product and advertise the H___ out of it. It's a gimmick and an expensive one. There is nothing in the brains of a Roomba that forces it to cover every square foot of the floor. If it does it is just dumb luck. If a floor is completely clear of obstacles given enough time it will eventually cover the entire surface (note free of obstacles such as chair legs and given enough time). A decent battery powered stick broom will work much more efficiently ie clean the floor in less time. BTW I used to sell them while working at Brookstone. That is not true for many models these days. There are two levels of robotic vacuums. One does a random path. The other maps the house and does a methodical path that covers the entire floor every time. I have a RoboRock at home and I love it. It has a cell phone app that shows how it maps and vacuums the house. I run it about every other day and it is amazing how much it picks up. It is not as good as a regular sized vacuum on carpets, but it does a good job. It does great on hard floors. I just take my vacuum out about once per week and go over the carpets.

RE: Older MH mpg with diesel

I have a 2004 Cat C7 350hp - 40 feet. I get between 7.5 and 8 pulling a toad. This is out west - lots of mountains. With the weight the engine is pulling, I figure that is not bad.

RE: Water softner setup

As others have stated, you want the filter before the water softener. We have a sediment filter and a charcoal filter before the softener.

RE: Help Me Choose My Next Unit

If you purchase a Class A or Class C, make sure they can pull your truck or a Jeep. My Jeep is 4500 pounds empty weight and many of the class C's cannot pull it, even though they have 5,000 pounds hitches. To calculate how much an RV can tow: GCWR - GVWR = how much you can tow

RE: KOA membership

In looking at the KOA web site, not all KOAs offer any kind of military discount. Also, when you join KOA, you get points for every stay in addition to the discount. When you accumulate enough points, you can use them for nights at a KOA. You will need to do the math yourself based on how many KOA nights you plan to spend each year. We end up doing enough nights that it is worth the yearly cost.

RE: Bicycle Rack

Another option is to put a hitch in the front of the coach. I had this done and I really like this option. I do not have to worry about the heat from the radiator. I lock the bikes to the carrier when we get into camp.

RE: Full Hook-ups or no?

In order or priority: Power Water Sewer However, most of the time we have full hookups. We stay in RV parks and rarely park in the boonies. We are retired and we park in an area where we can see the local sights which usually means we are in a town.

RE: Newbie ClassA questions - Stacker trailers

Instead of looking under the topic of "Super C', do a search for Super C. There are posts there.

RE: Newbie ClassA questions - Stacker trailers

I agree - you need to go to a Super C. To figure out if the coach can pull the trailer: GCWR - GVWR = what you can tow

RE: New RV TV show 11/17/19

We recorded the first show and watched it last night. We were terribly unimpressed. There was very little content and lots of advertising. And the content was not very good. We will not be watching any more.

RE: Windshield Shades

Yes, the MagneShade works to keep the heat down by stopping the sun from coming in. It is also nice that you can see out during the day. It is easy to put on and there is no drilling for connectors.

RE: A Question Are you limited to life on pavement

We experience both by pulling our Jeep Rubicon. We park in a nice RV park, and then take the Wrangler out and explore the great outdoors. We hike, bike and 4 wheel.
