RE: Urine odor eliminator

While i believe most people would agree that it's preferred to take them outside the areas where kids, families etc are expected to often be barefoot as well as living, cooking, eating etc. IF you can not for whatever reason I will suggest a product for neutralizing it as much as possible. Natures Miracle is a product we sold in our pet shop and it has a good following. For use inside when accidents happen and could be used in a small outside pen as well. It is one of the safest products around as well. For your use, a small garden sprayer should work with this product, but you do have to well coat whatever material you are sanitizing.

RE: Modern Food?

Slow versions of what was fast food can be answered easily, menu additions. Look at the size of the menu and then check out the drink selections, sodas, tea, and now milkshakes competing with smoothies and every kind of crappachino they can dream up. There literally isnt room enough in the back to staff all those stations and turn out food that is prepared on site.

RE: Where do you find water

Not always, but often the same places offering a dump station have a potable hose outlet nearby. If you havent used it, Sani Dumps may help with both task.

RE: Modern Food?

I know it seems counter intuitive, but at Texas Roadhouse, try the chicken sandwiches. Some of the best I've had.

RE: I want something different!

Since you are on the road travelling, why not start following the Dutch Oven groups? Learn some new dishes and methods or, start researching food festivals and visiting them? festivalnet

RE: Allowing non-housebroken dog to move in

You mentioned have a dog of your own, do the two get along? Yours could be a help in training hers. The older Chihuahua may want to go outside when it has a running mate. If they dont get along, you may have an even greater problem with a territory battle rising between them and your floors being the battlefield.

RE: Places To dine

It's funny, but it seems in small towns anymore, the only way to avoid the chains is to look for the local Mexican, Chinese, or Italian/pizza restaurants. And a lot of the time the best of those are found in small strip shopping centers. The other possibility many overlook is Hotels, Some chain hotels still require a restaurant, Quality Inn for example will usually have one. Non ethnic specialized food is disappearing fast from all but the major chains.

RE: Camping around Christmas time

From Tennessee, anywhere from Myrtle Beach, to the entire Gulf Coast could be great. On the east coast, the farther north you go, the greater the risk of cool (not necessarily cold) weather. Savannah is a great target, And does not get filled up nearly as much as Florida. Charleston is a short ride There are some old Civil War forts in both areas, and the cemetaries are a fascinating day in their own right. graves from the 1800's often tell great stories. And both have great tours of historic areas.

RE: Time to prepare for winter

When I had the lube shop we used to find a couple of cars a week with a couple of nuts and a shredded air filter not this many though.

RE: Help selecting East Coast location with lots of variables...

Most state parks that have campgrounds also have cabins anymore. Virginia Cross referencing isn't that hard online. 3-4 hrs from Philly is limiting , but if you can go farther,,,, But to cover a lot of various activities across all age groups look at Myrtle Beach. South Carolina

Time to prepare for winter

Along with the winterizing folks are doing to trailers and motorhomes, dont forget the tow vehicles or you could end up like this. FTR's Do check under the hood periodically.

RE: Anyone towed with the new Chevy Gasser??

The usual guys running the reviews and shootouts are likely waiting for the new Fords to become available. But you tube has a couple, 2020 2500 and 2500 I'm sure the Ike shootouts and such are coming, TFL and the rest are all just waiting their chance to play.

RE: RVs and California's Planned Power Outages

When I had a class C a couple of times we used its genny to keep the house fridge cold during power outages from Hurricanes. Also, if you still use a landline, make sure you have one old style corded phone, that cordless is useless without power to the base. For water, just plan ahead, save water in a bathtub for toilet flushing, and fill as many containers as available for drinking and cooking. Also, for the ones who bought into the EV idea, charge up, and there will be no topping off for a while. I know these items seem obvious, but people forget how much we depend on the utility companies and I have seen a lot of folks not consider these basic things.

RE: Generator pros and cons

If the convenience of pushbutton use is high on your list, look at the remote start Champion. You can leave it connected and just pus a button in the morning to fire it up, I also saw a guy who had run a 30 amp cord under his trailer to allow him to have the generator in his truck bed and to run his AC while travelling. 3150 watt inverter with remote start for a little less than the 2000 watt Honda's.

RE: The "Goodbye Room"

Been there too many times, I keep trying to steel myself, but it never works. My condolences on your loss. From another Aussum lover. from this morning when I changed the oil,,,,,,

RE: Bronco (to be) Re-Introduced (and with Hybrid version)

In a way, but just as a mitsubishi mirage can get as good a fuel economy on a totally gas powerplant as the Prius, and do so at a reduced purchase/operation/disposal cost as compared, why have the prius? Especially when the environmental issues concerning the batteries are considered? The Hybrid/EV always has the added issues of heavy metals and their procurement, and disposal and the additional weight during their life cycle. It just takes more energy day in and day out to move that extra 200 lbs of batteries. Or the 1200lbs in a tesla.

RE: Bronco (to be) Re-Introduced (and with Hybrid version)

The generator, if powered by a separate engine will have several other factors. As a small engine, it will not be required to meet the same "clean air standards" a vehicles primary ICE unit would meet. It adds another factor of the same weight it was supposed to initially be eliminating, along with the fuels etc. If the initial goal was to be going "all green" and eliminating carbon based fuels (not counting what charges the batteries at home) then the carriage of a separate engine/generator seems to defeat the original purpose. No matter if it is a 5 hp or a 200 hp engine, the vehicle will still require a similar amount of energy to move it. The little generator just takes a short period of movement, and spends more hours at lower per hour energy cost creating the energy, it still requires the same total amount. It is not a perpetual motion machine, it does not get something from nothing. As to what wears out, Heat and friction are the factors. Higher pressures and higher RPM's are primary (not the only ) contributors. And as to HP vs size consider "The current, third-generation IndyCar formula was introduced in 2012. The engines are now fuel-efficient DOHC 2.2-liter twin-turbo V6 with four-stroke piston Otto cycle developing an estimated 550–750 hp depending on the level of boost used and no inter-cooling systems." More HP than the 6.8 driving most class A motorhomes, Would you want to try using one long term in that usage? How long do you think it would last? Hybrids and EV's have a place, where their short range does not overly limit them, but when you add systems to an already heavy vehicle because of the batteries to get past the range limits, there are just too many factors working against them.

RE: Bronco (to be) Re-Introduced (and with Hybrid version)

It's not the size, or displacement of the engine, but it's power. In this case, this 2.3L engine has as much horsepower as V8 truck a decade ago. Let us know next year how yours is holding up. Usually small engines stressed by heavy loads don't pan out too well, especially in the long term, it's why both Ford and GM just came out with new larger V-8 truck engines. (6.6 and 7.3 liter) You can bolt on turbos and superchargers, but there is still little replacement for displacement. And how is a generator powered by another carbon burning ICE a fix for the electric woes?
