RE: Cleaning your AC Filter

In fact, on the hottest days I just remove it and the flow seems to go up about 25%. Is this something you've done? All of the replies have to do with cleaning, cleaning, cleaning. I get it. My question was more about air flow, which in my trailer is significantly stronger with the filter out. Most of the respondents have answered your original question. "No, we do not remove our filters" along with additional information as to why we don't remove our filters. Your observation about an increase in air flow, with the filter removed, is correct. But I can assure you the air handling system in your RV was designed for optimum air flow with a filter system installed. The purpose of the filter is to maintain the efficiency of the system. What exactly is your point of you second post that I quoted? ryoung

RE: Good Sam discount

How do they know that you're eligible for the discount if you do not include your membership number as requested at the time of making the reservation. Your mistake. ryoung

RE: Need file repository for sharing large files

In order to share your files they must be stored somewhere and somehow. Since you have a subscription to Office 365, you have 1TB storage available to you on Microsoft OneDrive. You can make any files stored there shareable. What is your reasoning for not using this service. ryoung

RE: Introduction post

PS: The plan is to travel the western US boondocking and RV sites for a few months at a time Glad to hear your plans were not full-timing. You will enjoy traveling around the western US. Did the same thing after I retired. I'm a former Hoosier now living in Oregon and wintering in Florida. ryoung

RE: Introduction post

Welcome. You have made a good choice for retirement. At least give it a try. I've owned several RV types, but the TC seemed to be the best for traveling and sightseeing after I retired. And as mentioned, there are a few a$$holes on here. You will soon know who they are; just ignore them. ryoung

RE: Purchasing in a 55+ Community - AZ

Arizona is one of 15 states that allow Enhanced Life Estate Deeds. Also known as Transfer On Death Deed and Lady Bird Deeds. ryoung

RE: Purchasing in a 55+ Community - AZ

You need to check what Arizona allows. Some states have a form of life estate deed that gives the owner continued control over the property until his or her death. Once the owner dies, the property is transferred automatically to new owners without the need for probate. I have done this in Indiana and Florida. ryoung

RE: Camper title and registration.

As I understand it, a manufacturers Certificate of Origin is a document used to obtain the first title for a TC. Manufacturers of TC's do not assign a VIN. Instead they assign a unique serial number and attach it to the unit. This number is included on the certificate of origin that is given to the selling dealer. If the dealer sells it to someone who lives in a state that requires a title, (there are only 8 states), the dealer will use the certificate of origin to apply for the title. If a buyer lives in a state that does not require a title, the dealer will (should) pass the certificate of origin on to the buyer, reminding him that is should be kept as proof of purchase. This can then be substituted as a title if later sold. As an example in 2004 I bought, a TC when I lived in Indiana, which does not require titling or registration. Ten years later I took the camper to Oregon and put it on consignment with a dealer. Luckily I had kept the original Certificate of Origin as it was accepted by the dealer as proof of ownership just like a title. Had I not had the original certificate I would have had to go through the same fiasco that you did. ryoung

RE: Camper title and registration.

Did you buy the camper from a private seller? I'm curious as to why the seller could not supply you with a title or a Certificate of Origin? ryoung

RE: mounting a propane tank to bumper

There is a difference between "recommendations" or "standards" and what is actually "law". This seems to be the conjecture of this thread. The NFPA standards are not "law". They are simply methods or ways of ensuring safety. The NFPA is a self funded organization that publishes standard methods. They have now enforcement authority. However when federal, state or local governments develop "codes" or "regulations" they will often include and refer to NFPA standards. This makes the standards enforceable by the government entity. They become "law". For example, federal and state Occupational Safety and Health (OSHA) agencies have incorporated wording from NFPA standards into regulations. In these cases, complying with the standards are mandatory. Many municipal building codes include NFPA standards and NEC standards, (which are a part of NFPA). Again these are enforceable. Back to the subject of this thread concerning mounting and locking propane cylinders. I initially replied that locking cylinder compartments is "not recommended" I did not say it was unlawful. But many interpreted it that way. Other posters correctly pointed to the NFPA standards to which I was referring. Also IMO, doing something that is unsafe for "40 years and getting away with it", is not good advice. Especially when it is contrary to published safety standard. Label me the "Safety Police" if you wish. But that's just me. ryoung

Thanks, I might take you up on it this summer when I'm back in Oregon. For now I'm enjoying the Florida sunshine. ryoung

RE: mounting a propane tank to bumper

Instead of trying to pick my post apart and getting personal about it,why don't you contribute to this thread and the opp that posted it... I think I have contributed to the thread. Although the thread has morphed from installing propane tanks on bumpers to locking cylinder compartments. I have pointed out that the NFPA restricts locking propane compartments; something many posters, including, your self were unaware of. Furthermore the NFPA specifies the proper locations for hauling or attaching propane cylinders on vehicles. And I can assure you that hauling a propane cylinder on the rear bumpper is not one of them. My point is to simply discourage someone doing something that is unsafe in my opinion. And that is to mount a propane cylinder on a bumper or lock a propane compartment. But as usual there are those that want to argue an opinion, and will get their way by trying to shut someone down as your quote is trying to do. Unbeknown to you, I have contributed to this post. Much more in a positive way than you have. Encouraging someone to do something that has inherent safety hazards is downright irresponsible. ryoung

RE: mounting a propane tank to bumper

Whoa big guy..Show me where I recommended to lock it up.. Common sense would dictate locking up the box while say in the store or eating dinner then unlocking when around..A deterrent only as most security devices are So you're trying to tell me that you didn't recommend locking propane cylinder access or perhaps condone the practice. ryoung

RE: mounting a propane tank to bumper

Have you ever seen an RV leave a factory with locks on the propane storage compartments? NFPA code 58 restricts locks on propane compartments. Yes, you can buy locks to secure the cylinders in the compartment, but not the access to them. The valves must be readily accessible in the event of an emergency. The code does not prevent the ignorant person from locking access. You are free to do what you want. Plus you're free to post such ignorant advice on a public forum and hang around and argue its validity. ryoung
