    It's a fun history to read how The Original Ranch was built. The "first peoples" were a tough determined group.

    Kirk, this whole thread is about the North Ranch at Congress...NOT the original Ranch at Lakewood in New Mexico.

    I agree, I've heard this several times this year.

    The Ranch SKP Co-Op

    Captain Happy, here's a LINK to lot pictures and a LINK to available lots and prices. I believe there are 15 lots currently for sale and we've sold several this year. I know three individuals that are currently looking at lots. Yes, we've had at least four individuals put their lots up for sale this year, but it was due to health or death. I see that you've posted in the "RV Lots The Original SKP Ranch" thread. If you haven't had the opportunity to read the whole thread, it will provide lots of information about lots and infrastructure of The Ranch. If you have any questions feel free to PM me.

    Coach-Net Crashed on me

    If you received a complementary CoachNet membership with the purchase of you RV, it would not cover your TOAD unless it was being towed at the time--you'd have to upgrade.
  6. Ultimately, for most of us, we can only vote by where we spend our money. I understand because there are companies I won't buy from, but I find Andersen RV products innovative. Very few other companies seem to be willing to invest in research and development and I, for one, will continue to buy their products.
  7. Yep, just found that out. I have a "home" account and the option to update local channels is not available. Dish told me that it is only available if my outdoor equipment was on a separate account. Interesting that both receivers are on the same home account and I can update my locals by calling in, but not on the app.

    DISH comes through for RV'ers!

    I know it's coming, but it's not on the Dish app yet. I've reloaded the app, but it's local channel setting is not there.

    Re-packing wheel bearings

    I like what ramonediris posted, but I don't like using a race puller--I use a punch and a 4-pound hammer...it works much better for me. To install a new race use a bearing race and seal driver set...https://www.harborfreight.com/10-piece-bearing-race-and-seal-driver-set-63261.html This is the grease I use: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0053O9FQS/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    RV Lots The Original SKP Ranch

    The Wi-Fi at the Ranch is better than any RV park I've been to, but if you want to stream you'll be disappointed. It's always wise to keep water in your tanks at any RV park because sometimes maintenance needs to be done such as repairing a broken line, pump, or, as in our park, periodic reverse osmosis system maintenance/repairs.

    The intent is to stop open businesses and hanging out a "shingle". Making money from the use of your computer, that's not disturbing leaseholders, would not be contested.

    I think no one uses the boondock area because it's so inexpensive to stay here, e.g., $50 a week plus electricity for first time visitors.

    Nice comparison chart...looks like a lot of work. I will say that our boondock area and dump station are seldom used. I might see an RV there for a couple of days once every two months.

    Another leaseholder does most of the website updates...currently, I only update the area of the website that shows which lots are for lease.
