  1. You might call the Escapees North Ranch in Congress for a potential referral. (928) 427-3657
  2. You need an upgrade. Check this out: 153 db Kleinn 230 train horn - and let it run for about 5-minutes. Ain't nobody gonna' hang by your camper for more than a few seconds. (you might want to buy some ear plugs too) http://kleinn.com/product/the-beast-230-triple-train-horns/
  3. Before you pull your gun out you might try hitting the vehicle alarm. My rig lights up like a Christmas tree flashing on/off when in alarm mode. When I add a train horn, I don't need no stinking gun.
  4. Only once when deep in grizzly bear territory with no one for miles around. I started the propane generator (our's is very loud) just to mark our presence. Never felt the need anywhere in the boonies - including the US Mexican border areas. Remote places are the safest. The bad guys don't have gas money to get there - so they stay in the urban areas. Besides, most of those RV'ers have guns. Don't go near them.
  5. Gotta' love that story. I can just picture it. Keep notes, you might want to write a book sometime.
  6. You haven't asked any questions in your original post. A lack of curiosity right there.
  7. Well I'll argue with that right there.
  8. Color me "happy" to be intact and still alive. And reverent for those who gave all.
  9. This one was recommended by the Lance factory repair facility: CRC Power Lube I lube the gear rack (Schwintek) once a month. It does make a difference in how quieter the slide moves.
  10. Late yesterday afternoon, while sitting on our deck, a gigantic C-5 Galaxy flew low directly overhead on a landing approach. The weather was clear, the sun low in the sky. It was not a direct approach landing. The pilot was making sweeping curve. At his altitude, the Puget Sound with Mt. Rainer in the background would be spectacular view. We used to see the C-5 pilots making touch-n-go practice runs weekly, sometimes daily. Their normal direct landing approach is somewhat east of us. For the last several years, we rarely see them anymore. They fly elsewhere. As I commented to my wife, yesterday's landing approach must have been pure joy for the pilot and crew. And I say to the pilots and crew, you can fly over my house anytime. Welcome home.
  11. Cockroaches. Bleach won't kill them. I'm afraid to even mention it, but anything "used" can have a cockroach problem. You can see "droppings" if it has (or had) cockroaches. For the very squeamish, do not see this link. for pictures. Germs: you killed them with bleach.
  12. We've also have been told to find the floor plan that we like. And we spent at least five years (on and off) looking at Class A's. We finally found a used diesel pusher that we really, really liked. It had all the bells and whistles plus some. It just took a long time of searching to know that what we really like is out there. I would not settle for less.
  13. I used well nuts for mounting the panels on my camper roof. Lance Camper Manufacturer's use them too. Go on YouTube and search: well nuts Good visual instructions found there.
  14. This site: https://tse2017.maps.arcgis.com/apps/Cascade/index.html?appid=70ca4863b31546faa4533411684f8089 As you scroll down the page it will move from west to east. And it shows the time variation - directly under the moons path provides the longest totality. As one moves further from the path of greatest totality, the viewing time shortens.
  15. Does Lowe's require proof, such as a DD214 for the discount?
