RE: Anyone lose a set of keys

OP here. Last time I do something to try to help someone out. Posting here was not the only thing I did. Guess I should have posted a book. Disappointing how many negative people there are. You could have spray painted in three foot letters on the ground where you found them and spent money on tv commercials and that STILL would have gotten you criticized on here! Thank you for doing SOMETHING!!

RE: Xchocks question

I have used four plastic chock blocks, two on each side for years with out an issue. Headed into camp a few years ago I noticed something alongside the road,,,An X chock in the bushes. I use it on one side only cause I have no other choice, Works good can't complain. Might break down and actually buy another.

RE: Animals in commercials

Have you seen that PETA wants Punxutawney Phil to be replaced with an animatronic robot. Geez,, its not like we BBQ him afterwards! Although,,,you gotta wonder what some apple wood and cattleman's sauce would taste like??:p

RE: WIX oil filter for Onan genny?

Baldwin makes quality filters. I have been using Baldwin filters for a very long time. Used to be a supplier near me and I could get them by the case. They have since moved and I have found them on Amazon. Don't get me wrong, WIX and Napa Gold are quality filters. Go with what you want,, but my suggestion is Baldwin.

RE: What to use for caulking around windows?

Do yourself a favor and check from the roof down to the widow. This fall I thought my kitchen window needed to be resealed, I found a small leak on the counter under the window. I pulled the window,resealed and thought I was good to go,,same leak again. Got on a ladder and found the roof lip seal had pulled up and thats where the water was coming from! Dug out the old sealant and cleaned with Acetone then resealed that lip seal,,no more window leak!

RE: Pledge

In the early 70s we used Johnson liquid floor wax on auto vinyl tops. It was half the cost and just as good. For those who remember vinyl tops haha. I sure do remember that! Made them look great! Also remember that Transmission fluid was the "Tire Black" of that time! Also remember buying a white letter paint stick for the tires! :)

RE: Adding outdoor lights to my RVs

You do realize that the campground light cops will blow their minds over these lights?? To think you want light on the side of your camper goes against all the rules of those that only camp in the dark!! I personally like 'em,, but seems other feel the need to shame us that are afraid of the boogyman!

RE: When does a Pickup become a " Historical Vehicle"?

I bought into a partner deal with a friend. A 1973 Mack fire truck. Registered it as Historical. Went to pumper demonstrations, parades, etc. We broke down once and it took us until late night to get it fixed. Had to Flat bed it to a lot that would store it because you are not permitted to drive Historical vehicles at night!

RE: Third Brake Light?

I think you would be better off installing those really large highly reflective chevron stickers on the back of your camper,,you know like on the back of fire trucks and ambulances! May not be cheaper,,but no one at the camp site would complain about that extra light?

RE: Camping Lights

Read my original, why all night. The CA responses seem to prove the point, hold my beer and watch this $hit. All fun and games till the cops show up. See the blue line in my avatar?? There is a reason for it, idiots fed my family 25 years and paid for all my RV equipment. I still think lights all night are ignorant, annoying, and inconsiderate kind of like some people. Stay in your city & I'll stay in my country. Ha,, fair enough,, you do know the saying about Opinions,,and yours is Bigger than the rest! You stay in Mayberry and I will stay in my world! Ta ta now Ya All! I see you learned allot being a public servant,,guess I wore a different color set of glasses. I served the public and they were not considered Idiots,but if the shoe fits,, then the country you live in deserves you!! Just a question,, How many IDIOTS have you arrested or did what you did cause they had lights on all night?? Just cause you wore a piece of metal over your heart doesn't mean you have a heart!! Look in the mirror,, Be proud Brother!! Idiots,,, yeah that's special! Worked for a county of great people, the idiots that couldn't follow the law are the ones fed us. If it weren't for the criminals I wouldn't have had a job. Go play your California lights and please stay on the left coast you not a problem out here. k!

RE: Camping Lights

Amazing the leaps that people can make. Someone comes in saying they prefer a dark campground. Immediately they are pounced upon for being killjoys, and "crampers" whatever those are. Where did a desire for a non-Times Square environment, become a desire to kill all the bunnies and blind the kittens? It seems if you don't agree with someone, you are not just wrong, you're morally reprehensible. Some people prefer a darker RV park, and some don't. It doesn't really mean anything other than that. But if you feel the need to rationalize your behavior, by all means have at it. https://i.imgur.com/tgIC6IMl.jpg Should be dark enough over there!

RE: Camping Lights

In all fairness,, I try not to disturb others. I do light and decorate my camp site, But always on the Awning or "Curb" side. Thats the "Action" area! I expect the same from you! I understand that the "street" side or non awning side is my neighbors side, My lights should be blocked for the most part to them. Same as the neighbor on my awning side, yeah it will reflect off or your street side,but that's what window shades or blinds are for,Right? I have not come across a neighbor with an awning side on the opposite of that. And most 99% of the places we stay at,, the fire ring side is the awning side! I tell the kids that the "Off Side" is not a play side and to stay in the "action area" or ride your bikes out front and obey the same rules as you would at home! Now kids will be kids, they get loud as they play and I try to control that! TRESPASSING is forbidden and respect for ALL neighbors is a must. With that being said,,,my kids are now in their early Thirties and the youngest is 27. NEVER have I had an issue with MY kids, Matter of fact I have had people walking thru the camp and comment how well behaved my kids were, Also had a neighbor a few trailers down come by and ask me what I was smoking? I could tell he was concerned that it was wafting his way. So I showed him the Pork shoulder and I apologized, Asked him If he would like a sample,, He walked away with three pulled pork sammies home brewed bbq sauce and slaw for his wife and brother! Next day I moved the smoker to the front of the trailer to help move the smoke.. That only drew more folks wanting to know what was cooking! The dear wife (party planner) threw an impromptu "Pot Luck" get together that evening! Met some really really nice folks and ate some great food! had many comments on how "FUN" our campsite was! So it surprises me to hear of Crampers that have an issue with that! Not that I don't care, but isn't camping supposed to be a pleasant FUN experience? I treat is as an extension (in a different spot) of our back yard! Hell you ought to hear my back yard when the kids were younger and had all their friends over swimming in the pool,,BBQ,Smoker going, a couple of tables of food and snacks! Dogs running around swimming with the kids! Now we have the kids over, but it's much more subdued. The now older couple across the street have said a few times that she misses the sounds of the kids having so much fun! Why shouldn't that be the way at a camp site? And some (now a days) multi color led decoration lights going? Where are you Crampers camping? Sounds like a very nice,dark,cold Cemetery! good luck with that! I can tell you that we have some very fond fun memories of camping with the kids and we miss that. You all must sit around an reminisce about all the Horrible cramping trips you have been on,, were the good ones the ones that NO One else was there?? Cause thats fun and all, but I work with the public and enjoy people, Crampers or not,,thats why we go!

RE: Camping Lights

Some of you tight wads need to rename your hobby to Cramping! Why should i let your cold dark cramping seep onto my warm Festive site? If I want dark and cold I'd camp in a cemetery. But I choose to camp with others,, and like a box of chocolates,,,,you never know what your going to get! Here's news people,, aint changing my life style to match yours,,Get over it!Just gotta love how you prove our points! What points,, am I missing something? Or am I not in the secret squirrel club? Your camping and want to control what everyone else does to suit you? Call the cops if I am bothering you! I am camping and enjoying being outdoors away from work! I have an array of solar LED decorations and the cops are gonna take me away? No ones gotten burnt yet! Ha Ha,,Your camp site----"Hey get off of my lawn,,Shut up,, turn that light off,, Stop laughing,,stop the cooking smell,,Oh god you closed your door and I can hear it,, Keep all of those bicycles out of my way,,Don't talk when you play board games and for gods sake Stop Cheering when some one wins at Corn Hole"!! I Have Camped joyfully next to Crampers just like you,, I love it!! I actually sleep good at night and don't fret about the Yard lights on!! And you wanna know my attitude about that? Thats the way its supposed to be!! Are we not allowed to enjoy camping cause your a Cramper? I don't work out of a cubical.. I serve the public, Even all my side jobs Serve the public in more ways than some. So if I take all my Stuff, kids and dogs,firewood and beef and go camping,, Well I am going to be laughing allot and loudly! I am gonna have a large camp fire! I will smoke a Brisket or pork shoulder,,Drink allot of beer and whiskey, gonna go fishing, play allot of board games and Toss games,, like washer Toss or Corn hole, we will cheer and laugh,, kids will stay up way past their bed time,Dogs will bark, somebody will need to make a run to the store a few times, breakfasts will be busy,, some like scrambled some like dip eggs, but we will be outside and voices will travel, sure enough a day or two into it a relative will show up late and we will make room, hopefully they brought more firewood for the 24 hour fire going, who doesn't like Smores for breakfast? So for you Crampers,, If i park next to you,,Enjoy,,I got a pulled pork sammy or a Smores for you,,I Got a beer or a drink for you,, feel free to pet the dog,,he's cool. Bring a chair and play "move Away" as we stoke the nights camp fire! But for gods sake,, BREATH,, its all good! Chances of Me being in the same spot next year is GOOD!!
