  1. FMCA Website

    Or, you could join some of us of the fringe of society and try Linux. And then most of the other problems go away. But the FMCA website is as slow a molasses.
  2. Proposed Change To FMCA's Governance

    Though I don't always, I agree with you for the most part Herman. I am one of those non chapter members, always have been and perhaps will remain so. As a wandering fulltimer, I don't often land at a repeatable place to participate. That means I do need to depend on others who stand still long enough to become involved. I'm OK with that most of the time and accept that position.
  3. Good heavens, I thought we were the only ones to use the "bathroom door" method. When the bathroom door is happy, moma's happy. And when moma's happy, everyones happy.
  4. Mattress

    Regarding mattresses, if you like memory foam mattresses, try this website. The price and quality are both very attractive. Keeping all things in consideration, we have had a 9 inch thick, medium density queen size that they had to cut down to RV length. They only charged about $30.00 to cut it. We have had it over three years, absolutely love it, but have started to notice that it is starting to soften. However, given the price, I can buy a new one every 5 years and be money well ahead. One caveat here. They come crunched and wrapped up tight. DON'T unwrap it in the living room area. Take out the old mattress, put this thing on the bed frame and then open it. You'll understand why when you cut the last string.
  5. RV Trip Routing App

    Bill, do you use it on your phone, tablet, or laptop?

  7. No Signatures Displayed

    OK, I have put on my dunce cap. What are "signatures" ?
  8. Should FMCA Allow Towable RVs-- Vote NOW

    Just to add some ketchup to the hamburg. At the recommendation of a certain national officer, one of our best friends who full times in a large 5th wheel applied for and is now a full fledged member of FMCA and as a matter of fact is right now camped in Cinci in the FMCA campground. Considering the fact that I don't believe he can be the only one, if the vote goes negative, how will national handle them?
  9. Wash Wax All

    Thanks RFSOD48 for starting this post and thanks MANHOLT for the Lucas suggestion. I bought a bottle and did the bottom half, what I could reach from the ground. What a great product. This will probably get me off my keester to keep the bottom half presentable. By the way, what happened to my ID at the left of our posts? If I won't own up to what I post, I won't post it.
  10. Electrical Burning Smell

    Or another possible source. I know you said you smelled it near the kitchen but if you have an electric blanket, most of the controls won't live through the non-pure sine wave inverters. The smoke definitely escapes. The smell could be moving up that far in the coach. Don't ask me how I know. Just a thought.
  11. Vote To Allow Towables Into FMCA

    I put my ballot in the mail yesterday. Printed it off the digital edition.
  12. Should FMCA Allow Towable RVs-- Vote NOW

    Thanks for the heads up on the ballot. We belong to GS and Escapees as well as FMCA. Spuds, amen.
  13. Should FMCA Allow Towable RVs-- Vote NOW

    Well this statement is me. Other than following this forum, I am always 2 to 3 months behind in my magazine reading. I was of the opinion that this issue had been settled at the summer national rally. Obviously, not so. I'm glad I stumbled across this thread. So now I (foot already in mouth) have to ask; from reading here, I gather there is a paper ballot in one of my unread issues? Which one? I'll rip it out and it will be in the mail tomorrow. I do have an opinion and have been expressing my opinion to 'National' at every opportunity. I will not miss a chance to cast a vote if I can help it.
  14. Growth In The Battery Compartment

    I didn't get to work on them today but tomorrow looks good to try to do some extensive clean up and Brett's suggestion on voltage to ground. I have a fairly new digital multimeter so I should be able to get an accurate reading. I haven't taken any specific gravity readings in a long time. A good look at some of those cells should give me a better indication of future life. I really would like to have them last until next spring. And I will be very careful during the cleaning process.
