    Texas 130 toll road

    Herman, is that the one in Hico? Where you turn left to continue on 281. Great place!!
  2. Joe, that's why I have the Vizio. The back of the Sony cracked and came half way off, while watching! Had I been driving...ugh. The Vizio is bigger and 1/2 the weight.

    Texas 130 toll road

    axles! You could also take Hwy 281 up to I-20, I try to stay away from any part of I-35...Right now, they are still working on it, just north of Georgetown to just south of Waco and there is two sections at Killeen, Ft. Hood, where you are diverted unto a one lane of service road, for 5+ miles...rough as a cob! We found that out last month! Took an hour!
  4. Make sure you have access to back of TV and all connections after TV is installed...don't ask!

    In my coach & toad, $35 from I-10 to 4 miles past Georgetown...it does not go to Waco! Small price to pay, to by pass Austin. Where are you coming from and going?

    Dead Battery

    On the 1100 mile trip home. I will presume you where on shore power and while driving, you was charging the start battery/batteries! The generator should do the same as shore power. Have you read your owner & engine manuals?

    Cabin Fever "2019"

    Joe, then who had the pup's playing on the couch? Facebook, your DW to Linda. Temp this am at 8 was 64, at 8:20 am 51..Now 11 am 54...only in Texas! The wind, went from 6 SW to 15/20 WNW..can't spray! Cactus is not the only thing it will kill.

    No Sir. 1 pint = 15 gal. There's 4 pints in a quart...I put 1 1/2 quart, in my fresh tank, each year! It's only 50/50 for mouth wash after you brush your teeth at full strength, I use Colgate & Listerine, but it's nice to know if HP is all you got.

    Trip cost

    What is a "High Price Hotel " to you? Fam camp is around $15. Tampa - Disneyland, is around 300 r/t, coach would take an hour longer than car...cost of Hotel, would be more than the whole trip alone! Like Wayne wrote!

    Joe. You got the dogs? Your DW said it was a possibility, maybe...

    Joe. HP is $.99 cents a Quart, $3 per year is not expensive!

    I need help finding a electrical gremlin

    When your able to look at your coach again, without discomfort, I would try Herman's fuse approach first...due to the age of your coach, you would not have all the high tech electronics we have now! Also, since you can't follow up on any of the suggestions, we are all shooting blanks! Yes, we would love to have a feedback on this thread.

    Cabin Fever "2019"

    Wayne, at the house on the Island...same as you! It's non-stop. Here at the ranch, grass goes dormant for 3 months, only weeds grow! The weeds will be gone by Monday, Linda sprayed 200 gallons yesterday...she has the Ag. Licence. That stuff is not cheap!!! Now, for the Cactus, I'm spraying today & we will pick up & burn it, next weekend. There will come the day, that we can't maintain this place any longer....hopefully, that's a long time away! Thank the Lord, country living ain't for everybody...we love it.

    Hmmmm! Clorox Bleach or HP 3%? One waste a lot of water, one does not. Both do the same job. One is harmful to your skin and lungs over time and don't use it as a mouth wash! HP 3% is good for brushing your teeth/mouth wash & still does the same as Clorox Bleach! Your call. Now the OP has his own choice to make!

    f442685, It would be nice to know, what class and type of coach, you have? In my coach (see below my signature), I have to remove the dash to get at the "plug" to the Radio! There are 5 class of motorhomes. A, B, C, Super C and Conversion & what your suggesting, would take most of the day each time I put mine in storage! My Start batteries ( 2 Series 31, AGM), does not charge off of Shore Power or Generator, I plug into a maintainer and coach, at home & campground. Back to Herman & Brett's idea!

    Herman, your right & you don't need a wash & wax! Hope that's not a bubble, 2/3rds back & near top!

    Welcome! I do the same as DD69. I also run a pint down my water hose..it's on a reel, so it's the only time I stretch it all the way out. Hold it up and pour, then kink it and attache to water faucet...run for a minute and turn off water & let sit for 10 minutes, then put hose away!

    Texas winter weather

    Up until yesterday, no birds in yard...then at 4 pm, they are here again...first the purple martins, 7 of our 24 condos are occupied. Blue bird, in one house out of 5, the hummers should be coming today along with the robins & red cardinals...Spring has sprung! 75 yesterday and same for next 10 days..cool mornings! Perfect weather. We may have a "Blue Norther", between now & Fall...be 90/95 and humid, 20 minutes or less in the 40's! Those are interesting.
