    • Many of the Corp of engineer parks we have been in have an asphalt pad for the campsite.  To date non of our jack have ever punched a hole or left any marks no matter how many days we sat on the site.  I would say we have a reasonable expectation that any asphalt parking lot should be able to support our rig.  However -- in most cases we are able to park and be nearly level without using jacks when we do stop at a Walmart or the like for overnight.  We seldom need to use jacks in a parking lot.
    • Haven’t noticed lights there I’ll have to look.   Longer yellow lights would be a huge help out on the 86. That’s a big truck corridor and they change way to fast. 
    • I must be getting old. Other than multiple devices having dynamic access to a common file, what is the allure of online "drives"? If the world goes screwy (er... moreso... ) and the internet goes down... what then? I very well could be wrong, but no matter what they say, I will never believe security against exploitation/cataloguing can be fully assured with those types of services. After all... never transmitting your files electronically is the best "internet security", is it not? I use a portable hard drive for "everyday" backups against mechanical failure and redundant off-site "long term" backup drives. I don't always get to update it but a couple of times a year, but worst case.. the important stuff is generally recoverable/re-buildable from outside sources (financials, receipts, statments, etc.) If it's something "terribly" important then it's no big deal to mail in a thumb drive to a responsible party (attorney, family member, etc.) For someone that works on the road and requires more regular and secure backups that might not work, but as a leisure RV'er, it works for me. On Edit: Reading the OP.... it sounds like one of the cloud services actually would work best for daily off-site backups. Sorry.... I only had Docj's post on the brain when I replied and it didn't really relate to the OP. ;-)
    • I would like suggestions  for some educational info on how to identify the parts on my Volvo 780 it has a d13 engine in it . Not only part identification  I would like to know what it supposed to do Is there any videos? I would like to some day be able to identify each part and be able to explain what it dose. Be nice to have something to put with my emergency kit in the truck in case of a break down out in the stix some where.
    • How about extension rods to fit into the refrigerator to keep things from falling out when you open the door?  Also, I use a lot of clear plastic bins in my cabinets to organize small stuff.  Putting stuff in clear plastic makes it easy to find stuff without opening and searching through a container and also helps stuff from falling and rolling around when you drive. I would also recommend some stick-on velcro strips and maybe a roll of the velcro strapping tape.  They call it one-wrap.  This does NOThave a sticky back, but sticks to itself.  Many uses. I would also recommend a jar of clear museum putty, aka earthquake gel. It is a kind of clear "silly putty" that you can use to keep stuff on tables from falling off.  I use it to stick a jar of liquid hand soap on my kitchen counter and to keep my bedroom alarm clock from falling off the shelf.  Like silly putty, stuff can by pried up and you can use it again and again.  Can only use on horizontal surfaces, however. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Ready-America-Clear-Museum-Gel-4-Oz-33111/202214434?cm_mmc=Shopping|THD|google|D29B+Bath+Vanities&mid=s9JnGEXSz|dc_mtid_8903syd25186_pcrid_41293307497_pkw__pmt__product_202214434_slid_&gclid=CjwKCAiA7ovTBRAQEiwAo8dPcRO_vfP8XSOg4sPr4WyyujdgXAPR7Sb5X4CViuk4Y39aY4O0ZBD6XxoCJsMQAvD_BwE
