  1. Howdy! We had rodent (mice/rats) problems before. Tried most traps catch and release, water bucket, sticky, spring etc… What I do know that works are the ones linked below. I purchased them from Tractor Supply. Loaded them with peanut butter and cough any and all every time we encounter problems with them. https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/product/tomcat-rat-snap-trap-pack-of-1?cm_vc=-10005 “Happy Trails” Chiefneon
  2. Howdy! I insured our 4400 International with USAA. I tried National General and they started with a lowball rate and then kept going up. So I went back to USAA. ”Happy Trails’ Chefneon
  3. Howdy! We have had our homebase near the Escapees in Livingston since 2009. My one complaint has always been the poor ATT service. They use to have a app called “Mark the spot” which you could use to advise them of areas regarding poor service. I usually marked the spot we are located at on a regular basis hoping the service would improve. A couple of days ago I found that the app was no longer available. So I guess ATT finally gave in because today I checked my new Apple iPhone 12 Pro and see three bars of 5G service. I ran a speed test and it was off the chart 226 down and 21.1 up. Glad to finally have good no incredible ATT service.
  4. Howdy! I use Amazon Prime music to make a playlist from the albums of the artist I like. “Happy Trails” Chiefneon
  5. Howdy! In our travels in Oregon and NJ I found it unbelievable how many people would pull up give the attendant their credit card and pin number to pump gas into their vehicle. My first encounter with this law in Oregon was from a attendant that informed me turn my diesel truck off she had to pump my fuel. Back then you needed the turbo to cool down before turning off the motor. She ran around pumping fuel for half a dozen or more locations. She informed me the law was in place to put more people to work in Oregon. She didn't like it when I informed her they needed to hire more people. It made her mad enough that she told me diesels could pump their on fuel. "Happy Trails" Chiefneon
  6. Howdy! I believe the mail service window is now open 0800 to 1700 or 8:00am to 5:00pm now. "Happy Trails" Chiefneon
  7. Howdy! Check into a Reece Goose Box. It I s the only gooseneck that doesn't void your warranty. I've been using a 20,000 Goose Box to tow our 44' toy hauler for a couple of years now. I would not go back to a 5er hitch. "Happy Trails" Chiefneon
  8. Howdy! We have a 2016 Smart Car that the key is stuch in the ignition. You can turn the engine on and off but can not remove the key it will not come out of the ignition. I dropped it off at the Mercedes-Benz dealer in Houston. They called back and advised it was the ignition and would have to be replaced. Only problem is the part has to come from Germany and it is on back order. Unknown when the part will come in and we will get our Smart Car back. Only good thing is we are not traveling now and we have been at our homebase in Livingston since the pandemic started. I would hate to be out on the road and this happen. If this is going to be a on-going problem getting parts for the Smart Car we may have to consider other alternatives. Anyone else have problems getting parts for there Smart Car? What would you consider as an alternative means to replace it also? "Happy Trails" Chiefneon
  9. Howdy! I use a pully system to take pines and other small trees. One pully then connect to tractor or truck and tree pull at a angle as to not pull the tree on to you. Works for me and my lovely wife clearing off the property. Got the pully at tractor supply. ” Happy Trails “ Chiefneon
  10. Howdy! Bigfoot RV trailers are a good well built option you may want to look at. As mention decide on a RV before getting the truck. Always better to have more than enough truck. Especially if you decide to upgrade to larger RV later, which happens to RVers starting out. Having a truck that’s under rated will make your RVing experience miserable. http://www.bigfootrv.com/m/bigfoot_rv_travel_trailers_2500_series.html “Happy Trails” Chiefneon
  11. Howdy! Your best advised is going to come from your attorney not us. Divorce is never great when children are involved. Been there done that, best of luck to you. “Happy Trails” Chiefneon
  12. Howdy! Channel 2 in Houston just did a story on the USPS mail service in the Houston area if you want to see it below. https://www.click2houston.com/consumer/2020/09/30/lost-mail-what-we-found-when-we-put-the-houston-area-mail-service-to-the-test/ “Happy Trails” Chiefneon
  13. Howdy! I would think it has more to do with USPS than Escapees. ” Happy Trails “ Chiefneon

    Howdy! I also have been using Co-Pilot for years as a fulltimer and would not buy another stand alone gps. I used my tablet towing the 5er and my smartphone in the car. They now appear to charge a yearly fee for the cost-pilot app but it appears to also excludes live traffic updates which you use to have to pay for. The RV app is only $29.99 a year. https://copilotgps.com/en-us/compare-features/#pricing ”Happy Trails” Chiefneon
