  1. Hair Stylist or Barber or Other

    50 yrs, or more, ago I’d go to a top less gal in Amarillo. She’d let you wipe the hair clippings off her chest ! Now, I hate going to a barber, there is nothing interesting there anymore.
  2. TPMS

    Anyone still at Q selling the TST system ?
  3. Houston Toll Roads

    We use the Grand Parkway frequently to go from Livingston to Katy visiting our son. It’s well worth the cost just to avoid Houston. But, we’ve never had the towd with us.
  4. Houston Toll Roads

    Anyone here have experience on the Housto Toll roads when towing with a MH? I have EZ tags on all my vehicles and am wondering how a towd is charged on the Grand Parkway.
  5. Video: Finding and Refilling Boondocking Water

    Nice video....if you have a pull behind & a pickup it could be of value. You could point out that can also use your winterization setup to transfer the water using your RV water pump. You should just say "valve" when talking about operating the the ball valve on the tank, it’s neither a "gate", nor a "check" valve.
  6. Battery monitoring system

    I’ve also switched to Victron, after installing and using 4 Trimetric, & 1 Xantrex. One thing about the Victron, as Kirk mentioned, you can monitor via Bluetooth on your phone. To add to Kirks though, you can use blue tooth on all of the Victron monitors, not only the 712. The REAL selling point for me was not having to pull any wires, just leave the gage by the shunt & use BT. I’d bet that they do away with the gage eventually.
  7. 50 amp power management

    30A SHOULD RUN, 2 A/C units. Note the 2 underlined words.
  8. Which inverter? Magnum vs. Victron

    Love my Victron Multiplus 2000, and especially the Bluetooth battery monitor.
  9. Winterizing Lithium Battle Born Batteries

    Wonder if just disconnecting the negative would suffice?

  11. I have a 709-4 display, never installed, with the 4th tank for a 5th wheel. I sold my 5th wheel and bought a motorhome so don’t need the galley tank display. If anyone here is contemplating adding the second display, buy the 709 with 3 tank display and I’ll trade, save yourself a few bucks Decided to sell, See classifieds
  12. Best Leveling Jacks to Buy

    $600 for installation in White Pigeon. I've had them installed on 2 Lazy Daze, and will do it on my new rig, hate to be without.
  13. ATT Service at Livingston

    Don't know where you got good AT&T service at RE, but in the residential area and main office area AT&T service is marginal at best. Search the forum for previous discussions on the topic.
  14. Livingston Mail Service

    We've had problems with the Houston distribution center relating to incoming mail to SKP several years. No recient change, either improvement, or deterioration of service.
  15. Houseboat rental?

    I'm looking at renting 3 boats for a family trip, not really concerned about location, but like the looks of Ouachita in Arkansas. My main problem is finding pet friendly rentals.
