RE: black water tank treatments

We usually throw a pod of laundry detergent down the toilet when we set out on a trip, add a little water and let it do its thing while we drive. Detergents are polar and will work to dislodge anything built up on the walls of the tank, and will work to break up any solids in the water. I hear the full timers using jus water, that's fine. But laundry detergent is cheap, and putting 1 or 2 pods down the toilet is easy. For those of us who's RV's get less constant usage it's probably not a bad idea to use it. It certainly wont hurt anything.

RE: Question on Hydraulic Fluid

ATF has a very distinctive odor, you should be able to recognize it pretty easily. if you aren't familiar with it, just check the transmission dipstick on your car. Take a wiff of that, that odor is very distinctive, hard to miss even if you have a bad sense of smell. Also, this isn't a very demanding application, it's not like its a tractor digging or moving dirt all day long; it's not going to make a huge difference what you use. There is not a lot of danger in mixing common oils like this, the additive chemistry may not be a perfect match, but there shouldn't be a problem with negative reactions occurring if you added ATF into a system originally filled with anti-wear hydraulic oil, or vice versa. The important thing noted in a message above is DO NOT USE BRAKE FLUID!. Brake fluid is a particular type of fluid that if you added it into your leveling system it would damage the seals and you'd have to have the entire system rebuilt.

RE: No shots...not getting in.

It should be required to travel across borders or on public transportation. No one has the right to endanger the health of others. There will be those who don't get shot because of religion and that is their choice but should not be permitted to travel. Those who can't take the shot due to health also should not travel due to health. It is all a matter of choice. And it is a personal choice. Wow, how authoritarian of you? Is this still the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave? Sounds more like the USSR....

RE: No shots...not getting in.

The people who say that it hasn't 'been tested' puzzle me. And I'm sorry to say some are my relatives. Millions and millions of doses have been administered and as always there are some very few claimed reactions, most probably just coincidence but some may be real. We both got ours as soon as they were offered. I think the ones who resist are math challenged and just do not understand the statistics of large numbers. Few people not technically trained do understand those numbers. It's not "math challenged" to realize that there are plenty of possible long term effects that are unknown at this point, and can't be known for years. This is brand new technology and nobody, I repeat NOBODY knows how this will turn out. I hope for the best, but there are already many reports of harmful reactions. Are you aware there are over 6,000 deaths associated with the vaccines? And many thousands more adverse reactions. And that is probably only a few percent of the total. There are top level virologists that are saying at this point the use of the vaccines should be stopped for safety reasons. And none of this includes the unknown potential long term effects. Do yoiu know the term "Pathogenic Priming"? Maybe you should look it up. Well informed people have good reason to not get the jab, it's kind of rude to imply they are "math challenged".

RE: RV Manners Matter

I'm fairly news to this forum, but not so new to RVing, been at it since I was a teen traveling with my parents. And I know things have changed a lot since those old days, but my bit of unsolicited advise for being considerate to your neighbors is, turn off the generator. Seriously, if you're boondocking out by yourselves, than go ahead and let 'er rip. If you're in a campground with others, without full hookups, just plan to do without the modern conveniences that require AC power, use your batteries and propane and save your neighbors from having to listen to your generator. Earlier this year we did an extended weekend out in the So Cal desert in a campground with no hookups, one clueless TT'er started up his generator Saturday evening and it ran for about 4 hours. When he finally shut it down the entire campground broke out in applause. Please be considerate, turn it off.
