RE: Smoky the Cat

My granddaughter closed the fridge on their kitty and could not figure where the meows were coming from. Dark and cold in there I guess and everthing edible was in plastic and glass

RE: RV park near Tampa Busch Gardens

I guess I did not realize the distance from HRSp to Busch. Closer than I had any idea. 15 miles. Thanks guys

RV park near Tampa Busch Gardens

We have visited there a couple of times over several years and frankly I was not confident with the area the attraction is in. I would not be comfortable leaving our rig there for a day trip to Busch Gardens. (Trying to be politically correct here) Where have any of you guys stayed in the area that you felt confident in the security? Thanks

RE: sat dish with receiver in slide

Your title threw several of us. "sat dish with receiver in slide " Think about that. Of course most everyone understood what you meant. There may be some sort of wireless connector from the antenna to a reciever you could place in the slide, but I have never seen one. Great idea if there is such a thing

RE: Campsite Sanitation - Beware

I spent 20 minutes reading this and feel nauseous from the graphic descriptions and rhetoric.

RE: Boycott “No Campfires”

When we got into RVing years ago, we stayed at a SP Ga/SC border. Enjoyed it a lot, even the campfires that weren't ours. About noon on a sunday the folks just thru the trees from us were packing up to leave. Their fire was still burning. I think they put every piece of scrap they had generated that weekend. Tin cans, beer cans, milk cartons, paper towels. This was nasty and so redneck trashy! Did I mention they had a baby? Babies generate lots of dirty diapers by the pounds. Apparently every diaper that baby used that weekend ended up on that smoldering garbage dump. Seasoned, dry wood only with lots of ventilation if you insist on a fire please!

RE: First Diesel Pusher Drive

Wow! I went from a diesel to gasser and liked the air brakes much better. Don't be afraid to get on them if you get caught by a stale green light and it changes before you anticipated. Our diesel was 40 feet with ceramic tile floors towing a 4 dr Jeep. Don't know the weight, but the air brakes would stop in quickly. This much lighter gasser will stop, but I am not nearly as confident as I was with the diesel

RE: Jeep towed discharged when towing. This is new.

We have had two 4-door Wranglers and batteries failed on both pretty much like you described. The shop foreman for the local Jeep dealer told me something about X amount of power is needed in the system to make it work when starting. Both Jeeps started hesitating a couple of seconds before the started turning the engine. New batteries both times were simple fixes. Hope yours is that easy also

RE: How do they get in?

Had an air filter box on an F-250 diesel half full of acorns. Never store your truck near the woods ;)

RE: 441

I know that this is a very old post, but didn't want to start a new thread if not needed. How is the typical weather on 441 during late November around Thanksgiving? I am coming through from north GA to PF. I'm pulling a 29 foot TT. I have no problem taking that route with the trailer, but did not want to add ice or snow into the equation. Most of the leaves will be gone and there is a chance of some snow up top, but that chance is very small. Bigger chance of fog or clouds across the top

RE: Push to privatize National Park Service campgrounds

If you guys have ever been there, check out a ride thru the GSMNP from Cherokee to Gatlinburg. There is no fees. In fact there is no fee anywhere here. I would not object to a fee to use the park, say $10 per vehicle. It certainly would help their budget out and be a lot shorter than going up 76 and I-40 to get to Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge.

RE: MH accident in gas station!

rockhill, where is the expectation of privacy if the accident was in public view. If the video/photos showed a tag number or faces of the driver or passenger then there might MIGHT be some standing of privacy expectation, but otherwise put your mney in the bank - the attorney has enough

RE: Bad Dog = No Start and No shifting of Transmission

rat or dog. Replace the harness either way. Hope it is just the tranny harness.

RE: Need ideas for Newmar Bay Star 3626

We ran into the same issue with our Canyon Star 3911. I ended up hanging a bag on the handicap ramp betwen the kitchen and bathroom. We have a washer and dryer we will likely never use. If I could safely remove those, the cabinet they are in would be perfect

RE: getting a tow vehicle

We towed a '03 Honda Element for years. Excellent towed vehicle. Pre-tow by running the engine for 5 minutes and shifting into all gears EXCEPT reverse. put in neutral, turn the engine off and unlock ignition. With the rear seats hung up on the sides in store position, you can put a huge amount of 'stuff' back there. We carried a mobility scooter for my wife for many long trips. If I could buy a new '03 I would buy it this afternoon.

RE: Advice on handheld electric drill for jacks

no. You want a high torque but nothing that operates in the impact wrench mode.

RE: Frame and tie down damage from unmarked speedbump.

You can ask and even demand compensation for your damage. I doubt that you will prevail if you get into a courtroom situation. Take your vehicle to a frame shop, have them straighten it and repair the damage. You will spend as much money on an attorney as it will cost you to fight the battle. As an old friend who got into trouble with the Feds years ago said, "they have all the money, the lawyers and the time". You probably got screwed over, but is your case so overwhelmingly obvious you have been wronged that you will prevail without a fight. From the photos and comments here, you have a sampling of how a jury is likely to see it.

RE: Hearing aids

I have hearing aids myself. Mine are Signia. It might help to know what is happening when you are 'having trouble'. They take a bit of getting used to. Your ears have to 'learn how to hear' again with them. How are yours powered? Mine are rechargeable, sit behind my ear and there is a tiny tube that fits in the ear canal. They are blue tooth and I make adjustments using an app on my iphone. I wanted no part of the tiny batteries that the in the ear canal models require. I have enough problems keeping up with my danged pills! ;) Are yours loud enough? or too loud? Is the tiny speaker in your ear large enough or too large? Mine were a bit over 2500 per ear and I am not sure that I got a deal with them, but after I wore them for a few days I heard a bird chirping - first time in years. I hope you have luck with your refund if you are sure you can't wear or don't like them. good luck doc
