RE: Washer issue driving me nuts

We have a Splendide 2100XL going on 6 years fulltiming. Only time it was not used was one summer in Alaska. Wife does the cleaning routine monthly and only adds vinegar. She leaves the door open a inch or so when not in use. I clean the lint vent every couple months. Hopefully it will last another 6 years.

RE: Visible Cell Plans & Service

Be aware, however, that it will slow your data when the network is congested. We've been on it for a couple of years and we have never seen that throttling. I did not see a mention of that in the new plan description either. However they do throttle to 5 mb/sec at all times. Usually not an issue. Just going by what the rep told me. I'm sure it doesn't apply to everyone in every situation. If the plan were perfect, nobody would use Verizon anymore. I dropped Verizon 2 years ago for T-mobile cut my bill in half with unlimited data. Pleased for the most part but coverage isn't as good. I am also AT&T customer since 1993 as fulltimers we knew we could cover better with two providers. I did switch to Consumer Cellular to as they cost less than AT&T but the same coverage. For all of you worried about price and service I paid $50 a month in '93' for 50 minutes and roaming was a toss up I got nailed with a $11 roaming charge for a 1 minute call letting a customer know I would be late due to a weather related accident that tied up traffic.

RE: How to keep a TC from being stolen when not on the truck?

Something my daddy taught me years ago. If you can't afford to replace it, insure it.

RE: New Orleans

We spend the fall/winter on the Northshore but don't arrive till week of Thanksgiving and we're gone before tax day in April. If you like hot and humid you'll be right at home. Bring your bug spray.

RE: New here! 1986 Holiday Rambler Alternator

You'll need a high output alternator. You have both chassis and house batteries to charge.

RE: Got forced into MS 365

My windows lost all colors as well I had to return to original factory setup but it kept the files I had transferred from previous laptop. It did remove Apps I had added but they were saved in a folder as removed Apps.

RE: Dayton to West Yellowstone I-90 and I-94

We've taken both at one time or another in the last 5 years both are fine.

RE: OT -- Oregon Trail

We've traveled most of the trail. It isn't one trail there are several different paths attempts to find better or safer routes. All of them are fine in our modern-day prairie schooners.

RE: RVIA Certificate?

Never been asked for a RIVA #. Never asked for the age of our 5er. Have been asked about out pup, slightly larger than most resorts permit 110# but he's loveable. We do travel mainly early Spring or just as most parks are shutting down in the Fall. I think that may be all about $'s.

RE: Refrige operation in cold weather

If you run it during the daylight traveling but worried about the night in the 20s or teens just turn it off till your on the road again. If its that cool it will take some time to alter the internal temp of the fridge. Just remember the second law of thermodynamics, if anything the temp may get a degree or two lower.

That's funny - I find Florida drivers to be among the worst I've seen in North America. You are absolutely right. And where did they come from?? Yup, you guessed it. Only about 35% of Floridians are native Floridians. About 1.6 million 'Floridians' were born in New York (that's about 8% of Florida's total population) . . . helps explain a large part of the problem :C If they're from NYC they may got their first DL in the sunshine state.

RE: Lake Mead should show some increase in level.

Cali could supply a good deal of the coast with desalination plants but prefer to waste money on virtue signaling projects.

RE: Re-level 5er with lippert hydraulics

I can tell when our trailer is out of level just by walking back to front. I'll just go to the panel and turn the system on and it will say "out of level". I hit auto level it does its thing and all is well and level. I try to not overthink things gets you into more trouble than out.Ah, you can settle a disagreement: does the Autolevel go through its total cycle, or does it just move enough to relevel? TIA It doesn't go through the whole setup like dropping the front end I just push Auto level and pump makes pump noise trailer moves, pump stops diodes say checking for level, then "Success".

RE: Three-pronged plugs

If your talking about wall outlets, the newer "childproof" outlets are a royal PITA, it requires the blades to be plugged in uniformally so that the neutral blade opens the cover on to the hot side. Could this be a reason for the falling birth rate?

RE: Membership Materials, where are they?

sometimes emails go right to spam or trash accounts. I have one just for E-purchases. Keeps the "have we got a deal for you" Ads all in one place.

RE: Can you name that sound (squeaking)?

Mom would turn the radio up. Worked every time.

RE: UP with hookups

The farther North you travel the fewer public parks if any will have EWS sites. You're there for the beauty and tranquility and many have decent shower houses.
