RE: Just picked Her up! 2020 Outdoors RV 21RD

We upgraded from a Chalet Takena 1860 to a 21RD. We love the walkaround queen bed (no more climbing over someone to get in or out of bed), the rear window is awesome.

RE: Air braked Truck Brakes for a 13,000lb Off Road Caravan

What's the deal with the American full size pickup in the first couple pictures, we saw 1 F150 and 1 F250 when we were in Aus for 3 weeks road tripping. The F150 was painted in a Construction Company paint job, and the F250 was towing a race car trailer.

RE: RV cameras

My 1964 F100 didn't offer a radio or AC or seat belts as factory options (they were available as dealer installed options). It had a manual choke, two speed windshield wipers, a bulb on the floor you pushed with your foot for squirting washer fluid on the windshield. Non power mirrors, three on the tree transmission and gas tank behind the seat in the cab. It didn't have a back up camera either.... but once you have one that's set up right, you kinda get used to them.

RE: Sorta 'Survey' - IKEA RV Stuff

We have Ikea pots and fry pan, the wooden racks to hold plates, shower mat, silverware tray and cork trivets. The closest one to us is about a 25 mile drive thru Seattle traffic so we typically go on a Sunday morning when the store opens and have breakfast at the restaurant. They have reasonable 1 lb ground coffee, and pear and apple cider in cans. For what its worth, we hit Ikea once or twice a year, and never shop at Walmart.

RE: Northwood Runaround Rant

For what its worth, we used to have a 18' Trophy boat. Not only was the wiring schematic available in the owner's manual, someone was able to obtain the "build schedule" from the factory in PDF form. It showed how all the hull pieces fit together, where the wood reinforcing was, and an idea of what was "behind" the voids. If you as GM or Ford or Chrysler for a wiring schematic, the condensed version is, "send $200.00 to Helm publications to buy the Factory Service Manuals".

RE: Installed Vortex II fan today

I just did the Vortex update, I went with a single speed and got a reversible PWM off of ebay. Our trailer has tall ceilings and my wife couldn't reach the fan switch so I ran the wiring down the wall in some wiremold and mounted the switches on the wall. Now I have an infinitely adjustable reversible fan. Is is louder than a fantastic fan, yes, but it mounts from the inside and it was less expensive.

RE: Cutitng Fiberglass

You're going to want a good dust mask, googles, and a disposable tyvek suit. When you're done, take a cool shower, (a hot one will open pores and drive the fiberglass dust into your skin), cutting fiberglass is a nasty itchy task. I replaced a transom on a boat and pretty much used every power and hand cutting device known to mankind. The die grinder with disk was the best ( other guy called it a pizza cutter).

RE: Wasps in camper. Best way to remove?

I had a wasp nest in the eve of the house, all I could see was a small hole. I set up a shop vac with a long hose. As the wasps exited the hole, they would get sucked into the shop vac. As the ones in the field returned to the nest and went to enter the hole, they wold get sucked into the shop vac. After a couple days, there's no one left bringing food the the ones in the nest and they die off. If you don't have clear access to spray the actual nest, this is the way to get rid of them. ( if you just seal up the hole, they just chew a new opening and it might be through the sheetrock in the living room).

RE: Coleman lantern

This, except with me it was 60's and 70's, and we cooked on 3 Burner Coleman Stoves in addition to using Coleman Laterns. Dad was pretty good a rebuilding them every couple years as required. Still have a single mantle white gas Coleman but don't use it. When I was a kid in the 50s & 60s, my parents had a cabin with no electricity and no telephone, running water and a stinky outhouse. Heat and cooking was a wood & coal stove. The municipality came by every year and oiled the gravel road. A totally different era. In the earlier days, dad used kerosene lanterns. Not that bright, they smelled (I liked that tho.) and they emitted smoke if turned down low. Then dad got a couple of Coleman lanterns that used white gas. Things got a lot brighter after that! Played many many hours of checkers and cards under a Coleman lantern. I miss the hiss they made. At some point in the 60s they brought power down our road and dad had a electrical service installed. No more lanterns after that. Last time I was up there, there's now residential subdivisions where there was just forest or summer cabins. Progress sucks. :(

RE: Hitch locks

As someone said, locks only stop the casual thieves. But its like the grizzly bear attack story, you don't have to outrun the bear, just the other guy, given the choice between beating on mine with a hammer, or taking an unlocked one, which one is the meth head going to take. If a pro wants it, there's nothing you can do to stop them.

RE: What's the one thing that you have but hardly EVER use?

We've never used our microwave except for storage, we do use the propane oven.

RE: southwire surge guard or Progressive industries

RE: What gps do you use?

I use Garmins, I'm an HVAC service tech and use them day in and day out. Some of the young techie guys use their phones, I just know one time one of them met me on a job, and I was at the correct house and he was down the street on the wrong side of the street trying to figure out where I was. I also figured out you can replace the internal battery in a Garmin.

RE: Portable DISH in Canada

Actually it's not a legal issue (at least here in Canada), it's an issue with the American and Canadian networks concerned about rebroadcasting their programs in other countries (and missing ad revenue). I checked with our CRTC (the Canadian equivalent of the American broadcast regulator) and they stated that they have no issues with us receiving Canadian programs elsewhere. A few years ago I tried to stream the 2 part Don Cherry movie. Since I'm a yank, the CBC website said that since I had a foreign web address, I couldn't download it. All was not lost, since I live in Seattle, our cable has the Vancouver CBC station so eventually it came on.
