  1. ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜… I almost put an "over and under" bet with my original post on how many posters it would be before someone said something about the topic not being in the right place!!! I did ponder for a little while when I posted originally about where to put it...it's not "satellite tv and radio", or "technical tips and tricks" or "rv'ing on a budget"...probably should have posted under "general rv information" but I didn't...more demerits for me!!!! Thanks again for all the useful information guys!!
  2. Thanks for the input guys!
  3. Suggestions please for a decent OTA antenna that is not crazy expensive. Thanks in advance.

    Class A with driverโ€™s seat legroom

    I have the same problem. I am 6' 4" and my knees hit the underside of the steering column which really hurts and is annoying. With the slide in, as it will be when traveling, the problem is even worse because I can't adjust the back of the seat to get comfortable. This is one of the main things I have put on the "list" for the next RV I buy...along with a bedroom slide and 50 amp service!!!!

    Stink Bug Apocalypse

    Nothing could be worse than the dreaded "love bugs"!!!!! Having grown up in the Livingston (Tx) area and spent countless hours scrubbing them off the front of my vehicles on a daily basis I absolutely believe they are one of God's plagues spoken of in the bible!!!! LOL!!! I really think that was one of the main reasons I changed occupations and moved away from the area... and only go back when they aren't swarming!!!!

    Towing a truck camper behind a class A

    I have a 2005 Chevy Silverado 4x4...We thought we wanted a Jeep Liberty 4x4 but I absolutely hated it. Thankfully I was able to get what I paid for the Jeep so I didn't lose anything. I have had the Chevy since it was almost new and it now has over 300,000 miles on it. By far the most dependable vehicle I have ever owned. It even survived being driven by my son during his high school years!!! Considering using it for my coffin...hopefully no time soon!!!!!

    Towing a truck camper behind a class A

    We are going to do the same thing except all I want on the back of the tow vehicle is a camper "shell" to keep some of the things we take along out of the weather. The camper shell will also provide us a place to get out of the rain/cold if we get caught back in the boonies while we are exploring. We have talked to several folks that are pulling similar set-ups and they report no problem at all with the diesel pulling it.

    2007 Jeep Liberty Toad

    That's a good price for this vehicle as it is equipped. We sold our that was a couple of years older but was also equipped the same way. It sold quickly so good luck with yours!

    Old Coots Giving Advice

    What a great idea!! Brings back some great memories of riding my bike down to our courthouse and just sitting around on the town square most Saturdays listening to life stories told by men that had fought in WW 2 and survived...as well as all kinds of free advice on just about any type of subject I could imagine!!! It was such a great time to grow up in!!
  11. Great info guys! Thanks again for all the input!
  12. Thanks Barbarok, good stuff.
  13. Exactly! I feel like am at least semi literate and can understand or figure out most things but after reading some of the literature and speaking with someone from the SS office I was more confused that ever...that's why I turned to this board and its members. Most are always very helpful with just about any topic I have ever brought up. Thanks again for those with helpful hints and experiences.
  14. Well dang, I was hoping you could tote me on in to the office!!!! LOLOLOLOL!!!
  15. Thanks Ronbo, that was one of the first questions I had...I see all kinds of advertisements about suppliments and was wondering if that was something I needed or not.
