  1. I tried it tonight also on a lasagna pan. Worked fine on the bottom, not so great on the sides. Also, the handle on the bottle is horrible and the squirt doesn't cover much territory. Tried it on a plate, did pretty good, not all the cheese was removed but that might have been me. Will keep testing. Not a total failure. Might try a different bottle.
  2. DNS is still missing ABC and PBS, I would rather have the channels than save $4 a month. Happy I switched to Dish and saved $50 per month. Big deal that I have to change my zip code as we move, can probably do it on their app. Will find out next year.
  3. Has anyone tried Dawn Power Wash? Sounds like using it would significantly conserve water when doing dishes.
  4. We bought a Green Mountain wifi version for our permanent site in the winter. Son-in-law got us interested, he wanted a Traeger so we went looking, Traeger needs its own pellets. We were interested and I started researching. Found the Green Mountain, told the son-in-law to take a look. He quickly was convinced to go with the Green Mountain. We keep our pellets in Home Depot buckets so we have a selection. Having the wifi running the GM is wonderful and would never get a smoker with out it. Well under $1000.
  5. We deal with a credit union and have a cash back CC plus our debit/atm card with ATM fees reimbursed. We try t go cashless as much as possible. Stores rarely give a discount for paying cash so why go through the hassle of using cash. We use cash once a week to buy 2 donuts(keep the change). That is it. About 10 years ago we decided to simplify our lives, limit ourselves to 1 credit card(we have extras) associated with our credit union and 1 financial institution. So much easier to deal with.
  6. First, never commit long term to a park unless you stay one night first. We generally move every week. From our central location we go North, South, East, West and dedicate a day to each. We then have extra days if needed to explore. Add in rest days, shopping, laundry and your week is filled up.
  7. I have always thought a pulley system high up on the RV wall might work. You can always go to a propane company and have them filled there or see if the local propane truck will come by your campsite.
  8. If you want pre-approval that should only involve your ability to pay the mortgage. I don't see why you would need a permanent for that. Probably another bank weirdness. Did you try more than one bank? I think your problem with the bank was just the bank. Banks have strange attitudes which is why we haven't used one in 20-30 years. Go to a credit union.
  9. Might just be the system. I haven't heard of anyone who has been throttled unless in a big city.
  10. This is meant for a drop ceiling that you don't have. Needs 12" above the ceiling. No go would be my opinion.
  11. We received a form in our mail this month. Maybe wait until you get your next mail shipment.
  12. Try a Credit Union. Alliant is very good with RVers, never used them for a mortgage.
  13. Dish was a lot less plus when you renew you get the best offer, Directv would never bargain until you threatened to leave. I figure payback is under a year.
  14. We just switched from Direct to Dish. We had them set up a tripod setup(free-we had tripod) and then had them switch out the Traveler($, needs a specialist from a local supplier). We ordered these from Amazon for the Traveler https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01C5K54YY/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00T37LAZA/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and we needed some switch from the local supplier. We tried to do this through the Dish 800 number and it was a disaster. Told us we couldn't do what we wanted to do. Went to the local supplier and in 15 minutes we had what we wanted and the tripod was installed the next day. We had to wait for the order from Amazon but once received everything was installed in days. The range of your ant. for local stations is a 200 mile radius. You need to call up and change your zip if out of that range. I understand it is very easy to do.
  15. Go to Alliant, they understand RVers and have a couple of people who specialize in RV Loans.
