RE: Windows license scam

Blocking numbers CAN help. I regularly block numbers on my land line. My landline frequently displays the message "Blocked call" in the caller ID section. One of the numbers that I had already blocked tried again. If it was blocked because of the call screening, it just displays "Missed call." ^^ This. I also pay Verizon monthly for use of their Call Filter app. Not the most effective out there vs T Mobile's or AT&T from what I've read, but it's definitely made a difference in the volume of garbage calls I receive.

RE: Windows license scam

These guys are scummy enough, but my real anger is toward those who call up and try to convince seniors that their Medicare needs "activating" or they need a new card. Special place in Hades for those dirtballs. My Social Security & Medicare "accounts" have been suspended 3x this year for "fraudulent activity" and warrants have been sworn for my arrest. Laugh, hang up, block number, laugh some more. Wash, rinse, repeat. :B

RE: Tampa RV Show

Thanks to all for your help. I just booked a room at the LaQuinta right across the street from the fairgrounds. Looking forward to it. And don't forget the Seminole Tribe will be more than happy to lighten your wallet at the Hard Rock. :)

RE: Request Prayers

What was the fall Height? Did your wifes'head strike an unyielding surface like concrete resulting in soft tissue injury bleeding or altered level of consciousness? Does she take any bloodthinner meds? They can be a factor in closed head trauma bleeding. Could be simple as a scalp wound, concussion, or closed brain bleed, a potentially very serious injury. Hence my suggestion of transport by ambulance to a hospital with appropriate diagnostic resources and physicians to diagnose and treat.

RE: Request Prayers

Retired paramedic here. The urgent care facility made their diagnosis based on what? Is your wife's behavior significantly different than before her accident? What, if any physical symptoms is she displaying? Not a lot of detail provided, but I would suggest 911 call for an ambulance, transport to a hospital for evaluation where a doctor could order imaging such as a CT scan or MRI, tests I'm sure weren't available at an urgent care facility. Don't know where you are, but in Florida EMS personnel were covered by what was called the incapacitatd patient law. Simply put, if in the judgment of a paramedic or EMT a patient (based on history, behavior,symptoms, physical presentation) could be transported to a hospital for evaluation; not to be confused with laws addressing psychiatric or mental health crisis.

RE: ALLIGATORS!

Alligators also enjoy a dip in backyard pools and even the occasional visit to Cocoa Beach to frolic in the surf. :)

RE: Trekkers Alert: If you're a Star Trek fan...

For The Hardcore Trekkies A full ship (4000 passenger) charter.........and it's sold out. Wife and I booked a quick 4 day trip to the Bahamas in February and were puzzled why the same ship wasn't doing a regular revenue cruise in late February. My God, the Romulans & Vulcans seized it! :B

RE: ALLIGATORS!

Cannibalism has nothing to do with the size of the gator population, they can and do dine on one another. The problem in Florida is development keeps edging into gator habitat, much like frequent bear sitings in the area I live in, 3 miles from Wekiva State Park/Forest, surrounded by residential development. The bears didn't get the memo either.....

RE: New shore service tripled energy bill

Wonder if: The OP's electric utility uses "smart meters"? If so, is the meter working correctly? 300-400 KWH per billing cycle? How do you do it?? :)

RE: I-40 bridge to memphis

According to media and the TN DOT website, the I-40 bridge over the Mississippi was fully reopened August 2nd. A scan of the interwebs found nothing to the contrary.

RE: Coal-Rolling Teen Pickup Truck Driver Hits Six Cyclists

Be grateful you're not a cyclist (or pedestrian) in Florida. They both get struck and left for dead.....a lot.

RE: Will Fed shutdown bar access to Nat Forests? Nat Parks?

During the government shutdowns in 2018 and 2019, the parks remained open but with reduced staffing or curtailed services. Probably best to check the website for your destination park frequently prior to October 1st. Whether the "tribes" in DC come to an agreement on a budget or cobble together a continuing resolution for a couple weeks or a month until a budget agreement is reached? Anybody's guess......

RE: New Ram 5500 Build

RE: What's in your tool kit? What about other must-haves?

Torx bit screwdrivers in addition to slotted and Phillips. Unless the RV industry has changed Torx screws are their favorite fastener after staples. I'd look things over carefully, you might have some fasteners that use the Square Bits, the Robertson type. Sorry, that's what I meant was the square bits.i have a set of Torx bits that are quarter inch drive for ratchet or a screwdriver handle and there is indeed 2 square head bits in the set. Bought them at Lowe's years ago.

RE: Saw a unicorn F-150 on the road yesterday!

I'll see your F150 and raise you a 2022 'Vette I saw in my neighborhood yesterday. It was white and anything but pedestrian looking. Can't tow, but I understand they can definitely "haul the mail". :)

RE: Can I Use Gear Oil On Dual Cam

I used Vaseline on my Straight Line dual cam for the entirety of my ownership as Reese suggested. Zero problems. The bonus was an easy removal and cleanup with shop rags after every trip. Regarding snapping, popping and clunking. Only sounds I ever heard like that was when making turns. No effect on the trailer or the hitch.
