RE: Grey water dumping

Following on another post, we've definitely seen grey water dump pits in Georgia. People need to stop with the high-and-mighty, self-righteous attitude about dumping grey water. There is a big difference in slowly dispersing your grey water vs. just dumping it all at once..... THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WRONG WITH DUMPING GREY WATER ON THE GROUND!!!!!!!!!!... Its grey water! Little soapy, maybe some bacon grease, but mainly WATER. :S It's called camping respect for OTHER campers. The contents of the gray tank STINKS. It's not just soapy water it's all that goes down the sink during food preparation and washing the dishes with all the parts of food on it. And if you are dumping grease down your sink? Well, that stuffs sticks and stays and goes rancid on the walls of your gray tank adding to the stink forever. It's not a septic tank, has no grease trap....it's an above ground HOLDING tank. How would you like it if I dumped my entire gray tank drop by drop or all of it at once under my coach on a CG site and YOU and your family had to park in the same spot following me? How would you like it if you were parked next to a camper that dumped their gray tank while you and your family were having a picnic outside and had to smell that stink? I HAVE been parked next to an 'inconsiderate', 'think they don't have to follow the rules' camper. He dumped his gray tank the entire week of a sporting event. The stench was just awful.

It's that time again!

The last big RV weekend coming up and then for many of us it's time to think of putting up the RV and winterizing it if you live in one of the cold states. :C Then it's time to start thinking....... http://i.imgur.com/t9gMmUCl.jpg :B

RE: Grey water dumping

Well......... If asking about dumping GREY in CALIFORNIA it depends on whether or not you can meet the requirements California Grey Water Guide Within the General Description of this link should explain to those in any state that seem to want to randomly dump their gray water and 'think' it is ONLY soapy water from showering therefore it is ok. :R California General definitions: "Graywater" includes but is not limited to wastewater from bathtubs, showers, bathroom washbasins, clothes washing machines, and laundry tubs, but does not include wastewater from kitchen sinks or dishwashers. Almost ALL RV's have kitchen sinks that dump into the gray tank. It is the food stuffs, grease that go down the kitchen sink that STINKS and attracts bugs/animals etc. And IMHO dumping a gray tank anywhere where other campers will be parking after you or near you is just plain disrespectful.

RE: Ceramic heater

Check out the Vornado. It's lite weight,and provides a constant warm, even breeze with a thermostat. The fan runs all of the time at different speeds to prevent swings from cold to hot. Nothing special at all about ceramic. Thanks for the tip on Vornado. I've seen their fans but Haven't heard of them having heaters. One thing that impresses me is that many of their models do have a tip over switch AND an overheat shut off unlike so many of the other brands that do not have the tip over switch. Are these ceramic heaters? I don't see any reference to it on the webpage of products. http://www.vornado.com/heaters/SRTH-Tower-Heater Their new stainless steel model looks interesting albeit pricey.

RE: Any full timers off the road?

Unless you have family to visit as a destination thru out the year as many RV'ers do. If you don't have family, After a few years on the road seeing all the the things on your bucket list, it gets old. Over the years you end up finding a favorite winter spot and a favorite summer spot and just bounce back and forth with extended stays. I just happened to score a real nice house in Florida on acreage during the real estate crash! I will be making that my winter home, the MH parked right outside to jump into and get outta dodge to head North to avoid having to endure the hot sweltering summers here! So ya still full timing only I now have a 2 ac campground site for the winter. :W

RE: Ceramic heater

Ceramic heater They all are 1,500 watts and put out the same amount of heat. IMHO I think the ceramic heaters are the 'safest' and put out the most constant heat. Others have their favorite heaters. From experience here is what I found: The small square ones fit nicely and safely on the counter or table. The thin tower ones do not sit safely on carpet leaving you usually only the kitchen floor to place it. If you have kids or pets these get knocked over easily. I think they are all show and no go you get the same amount of heat from one of the square ones. The oscillating one tends to feel like it cools the air with its movement instead of heating it. I used one of those enclosed oil heaters for one very cold winter in Florida and it sucked. *If you can find a ceramic heater with a ""tip-over switch", buy it! They are IMHO much safer to use especially in an RV. They are very hard to find since UL approved they no longer are required to have one. I.E. 1. Tip over switch - when it tips over it immediately shuts off. 2. New method is when it tips over it 'waits' until it has reached a certain temperature before it shuts off. Can you spell fire if it falls against furniture, drapes etc.? :R IMHO, JMHO :C

RE: Yeti coolers?

If I'm not mistaken, Consumer Reports said the Ozark Trail 30oz. insulated tumbler ($9.74 @ walmart) kept ice longer than the Yeti. I stand corrected! In that case my beer will be gone in 10 minutes! :B

RE: APP for tracking State Travels

google 'travel blogs'. or you can just google 'free blogs' and then search for RV, Full time, etc . They are free and have many different styles to choose from. Make them public or private. This one had a real good interactive map for tracking travels. I don't belong to it anymore so not sure if they still offer it. https://www.travelblog.org/ Many of them include an interactive map that will track and save your trips so you and/or your family can view them later. Most use templates which makes it very easy to upload daily your pictures, enter text etc. Here is a link to a travel map: Quick Step-by-Step Guide to Tracking Routes with the Routes.Tips App complete with clickable pictures/info for each stop https://routes.tips/blog/how_to_add_interactive_maps_to_travel_blogs

RE: No turning back... need advise moving forward

Have you ever had a MH before? If you have, what has been your longest trip together? From some of your questions it seems that this is a totally new experience to you. If this is, I would strongly suggest that you reconsider selling your house before you spend at least a few months in an RV on the road. A lot of the low mileage RV's that you see for sale are sold by people that jumped in to full timing without any previous experience. it is not for everyone and it can be an expensive lesson to learn. Just saying...... X2 Selling your house first with no previous RV experience could be disastrous. Most have at least weekend/seasonal RV'd, owned an RV, and have at least snowbirded once to a southern state for winter, etc BEFORE ever thinking of selling the house and hitting the road. With out some sort of experience there are SOOO many variables and costs involved in going full time that you will not be aware of. And lastly many have 'saved' and 'planned' and have an 'exit strategy' AND have tested the waters to go full time BEFORE they decide to sell their home. Certainly don't want to rain on your parade but I would really feel bad for you folks if you sold everything and found out living in an RV full time was not for you. :C

RE: Are we too late for escaping the winter

.... First of all: YOU DO NOT know when and how I RV period. :R AND I DID mention that the further south near the coasts and attractions reservations would be needed. Try reading all of the posts. And while you are at it try posting 'constructive' reply's to the OP rather than spending your time bashing other forum members that are offering suggestions.

RE: Tent Stake Hack

Did y'all watch the video? Its a guy talking about marking his tent stakes with lights. He's not selling them either. Maybe Not selling them, but Posting the link to it every where they can AND on all the big RV forums nets them more clicks/money AND it directs you to his and/or sponsored website which sells items. >>AND<< Look under the video it is posted by a 'COMPANY' not the forum member. And if you click on the link on the video it directs you to the OP's website with a sponsored company amazon being one of them and selling items. Sooo it IS an advertisement wrapped up in a so-called post to drive traffic to a "business website" that pays the website owner by number of clicks and/or from selling items on amazon. This practice is a very lucrative way to make money on the internet. Which is http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/RVn05/ccf14cee.gif per forum rules on this forum.

RE: Multi route trip planner

I just change directions and my GPS recalculates what I have done and re routes my trip to my destination by what I have just done by leaving the road I was on.

rockhillmanor - Sometimes it is best to go to the horse's mouth haha... Their tracking screen sure is small however... If I got a 24-inch monitor screen going I want to see the whole thing filled out haha...Roy Ken You have to click on the little pictures midway down on the one that says "Warnings/static cone image" it will fill your screen! Here's the latest on Fiona. http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/storm_graphics/AT06/refresh/AL0616W5_NL+gif/145300W5_NL_sm.gif http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/refresh/graphics_at1+shtml/145300.shtml?5-daynl#contents I'm watching all of these like a hawk and daily! :C It's the height of hurricane season and I'm waiting on the roofing contractor to get his butt out here and put a badly needed new roof on my winter home in Florida. Before any of these decide to change direction and head closer to Florida!!:B

RE: Overnight parking power

Buy one of these. AND a small inverter plug. http://i.imgur.com/hr57ZVCl.jpg width=320 AND > http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/RVn05/th_inverter.jpg?t=1298075850 I can run a small TV almost all night on it and a lamp. Then just recharge it when you are parked for the next time. I keep one charged and ready on board my RV all the time in case of emergency. It will also charge your phone and air up a tire. And it has also started 6 dead MH's in my travels! I don't leave home RV'ing with out it. :C

RE: Never Again

They are only as good as the 'contracted' tow companies in the area. They only call 'their' contracted tow companies. There might be a tow company with one mile of where you broke down but if it is not one of 'their' contractors you have to wait for one of theirs that might be 40 miles away. I have to wonder why they don't have a larger data base of signed on contractors.? AAA is know world wide and IMHO, JMHO any and all tow companies will take the road side service call because they KNOW they will be reimbursed same as will your own national brand car insurance tow policies. If you notice with them you are allowed to call the closet tow company and both will pay for it or reimburse you 100%. Long story short IMHO GS needs to expand their contracted tow companies or change their history so all tow companies are assured they will be reimbursed for their service to an RV'er.
