  1. We've been using Charmin for years. The key, no matter which toilet paper you use, is to use plenty of water when you flush. And, of course, keeping the black tank closed until it's time to dump!
  2. That's my understanding. Pfizer is on track to be approved for a booster shot by the 20th, but Moderna hasn't gotten all their info in, so will probably lag behind. We got the Moderna vaccines, so will have to wait until the booster shot is approved...hopefully, soon. Pfizer booster likely to be OK’d by Sept. 20, but Moderna’s may lag, Fauci says (msn.com)
  3. I would never take the word of an RV dealer -- for much of anything, but particularly about this issue since the dealer is wrong. Unless you are also planning to make Montana your domicile state, docj is correct in saying that your driver's license has to be obtained from your domicile state. If that state is Texas and your rig meets or exceeds the weight requirements, then you'll need a Class A or Class B non-CDL driver's license. I think you're way overthinking this. Most, if not all of us, who have had to get the upgraded Texas driver's license have driven to the test site with whatever driver's license we currently have. I have never heard of anyone being ticked or arrested for driving to the test site with the "wrong" driver's license.
  4. It would help to change the subject of your post to something more descriptive than your User Name.
  5. We used to subscribe to a bunch of magazines, but don't subscribe to any now. The Escapees magazine is read online...I don't get a paper copy.
  6. Hmmm...what about the Ecotouch you said you had, above?
  7. My doctor's office is no longer taking temperatures before entering the waiting area. I have been asked if I've had contact with anyone with COVID (no). Masks are required at all times.
  8. I pay no attention to either the post count or the ranking. However, if both are going to be part of the forum, you'd think that they would at least match. The forum software isn't an Escapees in-house software -- it's provided by a third party. The Escapees IT department may be able to make changes to eliminate the post count and/or the ranking, but if so, I suspect they have other more pressing matters to deal with.
  9. I've heard a lot about extenders leaking. We've never used them; instead, we've used the long metal tire stems similar to these: Duallyvalve - Your dually solution! (yourtireshopsupply.com)
  10. Nevada's roads are good. Arizona's are pretty good, too, with the exception of a stretch of I-10 west of Phoenix. It's been a number of years since we've been that way, so it may have been resurfaced by now.
  11. Our current RV came with a Girard tankless water heater which I hated. We lived with it for seven years and this year we used some of the money we received from the government to replace it with a tank water heater. People who have the Truma seem to like it. I'm not familiar with any other tankless water heaters for RVs.
  12. Ray, IN said Canada *may* cancel...just an opinion, but nothing official. However, I tend to agree with Ray...with the rapid increase in COVID among the unvaccinated, I wouldn't doubt that Canada will rethink their opening date.

    Trading Up

    I noticed they'd totally changed their website...thought I was on the wrong one at first! Here's the one for travel trailers: Travel Trailer Towing Weight Calculator - Changing Gears (changingears.com)

    Trading Up

    This may be the calculator Ray meant to include in his post: Fifth Wheel Towing Weight Calculator - Changing Gears (changingears.com)
  16. I really don't care one way or another since I never pay any attention to them, anyway.
  17. X2. Although we use a Trav'ler rather than a dome, the Pathway X2 is the only dome I'd consider if we were going to go that way.
  18. We had a Girard tankless water heater which I hated. I hated it so much that this year we took some of our money received from the government and had it replaced with a tank water heater. People with the Truma tankless water heaters seem to like theirs and I might have switched to that, but to have one installed was even more expensive than having a tank water heater installed (the Truma alone cost as much as what we paid to have the tank water heater installed).
  19. If you click on the words "Picture Posting" it should take you directly to the post. Your link takes me to what I assume is the main page of the RV.NET Photo Posting page, but no photos.
  20. Have you checked the Classified section on the Lazy Daze Owner's Group Forum?
  21. We are Dish customers and have a Winegard Trav'ler on the roof with a Hopper 3 receiver. With this setup, we can watch a program while at the same time recording multiple other programs no matter which satellite any of the programs are on. If we brought our Joey along, we could also watch a second TV, but we leave it at home. We mostly boondock, so sitting under trees that block the satellite dish isn't a problem. However, if we were often blocked by trees, I'd probably get a Winegard Pathway X2 dome satellite dish, even though that would limit what we could do (in our case, we'd have to bring along another receiver such as a Wally to work with the dome since the Hopper 3 doesn't work with domes). If I were going to stick with just a dome, it would be the Winegard Pathway X2 with the Wally receiver, like this: Pathway X2 Portable Satellite TV Antenna and DISH Wally HD Receiver Bundle | Winegard Company
  22. Another great automobile museum is the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum in Auburn, IN.
  23. I know other mail services do this, because we had our SD mail service handle vehicle registrations. However, does the Escapees mail service in SD handle vehicle registrations? I'm not sure they do, so best to contact them to inquire. All the forms you need are available online, so you *could* handle the registration yourself, but it would be much easier for someone familiar with the process to do it for you (for a small fee, of course).
  24. I don't know how to get rid of it, but you CAN change the city it shows. Open it up and then in the blue box in the upper right-hand corner, click on the three dots and Edit Location.
