RE: Yuma & San Diego area

For El Cajon I like Santee Lakes - http://www.santeelakes.com/ X2 Also, when you reach Dateland, be sure to stop for one their Date Shakes. If you're travelling on I-8, be sure to top off your gas tank in Yuma or El Centro, so you don't get stuck gassing up in Ocotillo's highway robbery gas station. The next major convenient gas stations on 8 after Ocotillo are at Acorn Casino and Alpine.

RE: Pulled over and harassed in texas

2011: Sold my Provan Tiger to a friend in Indiana. I delivered it to her daughter in Boulder, CO. Friend's husband flies out to pick it up. Driving it back to Indiana, he gets stopped. Tear rig apart searching for drugs. Unit is illicit drug-free. They let him go. 2010: Elderly neighbor heads cross country. Gets pulled over in Oklahoma on some bogus charge. Asks if he has drugs in RV. Yes, prescription pills and a small amount of medical marijuana (legal in CA). Officer calls for back-up. Dogs and more officers arrive. Tear his RoadTrek apart. Long and short of it: He is jailed for 5 days, court, bail, lawyer, RV storage, invited not to return to Oklahoma. Total cost to him $4000. His lawyer told him that a common m.o. is solo males in vans / RVs, as a result they are targeted by police as potential drug mules.

RE: Class B cookware

I carry 2 frying pans, small and large; 2 sizes of sauce pans. I also have a MSR Alpine 4 Pot stacking set left over from my backpacking days. The MSR is stored away in my B but, I've never had the need to use it.

RE: Flat solar panel performance today in Quartzsite

The altitude is pretty low. The extra atmosphere will block a lot of sunlight. Test this up at 4,000 foot elevation in Boulevard CA, and you will see a lot more amperage. There is a casino up there, but not sure about any campgrounds or dry camping areas. Fred. The casino is Acorn Casino and there's a campground down the road called "Sacred Rocks", which was recently purchased from private owners by 1000 Trails (?).

RE: Realistic mileage for Sprinter based diesels?

My 2006 Pleasure-Way Sprinter (5 cylinder, T1N), consistently gets 22 mpg. I record every gas stop (mileage, trip, gallons, price per gallon, total price. With the 26 gal tank I'm good for a 600 miles range, although I usually fill-up at the 1/2 tank mark. PS I found diesel prices were higher in the Northeastern states than in Nova Scotia, and here in California / southwest.

RE: Glass in cupboard clinking

Some buy new sox and use them as "cozies" for glassware.

RE: What do you tow with your B?

Do you know the stated towing rating of the Sprinter? 5000 lbs.

RE: More privacy with bathroom window

dee74 I agree with you that something opaque should be used to cover that window. I think the people who are telling you not to worry about it just don't realize how many mutants walk amongst us; so many in fact that taking precautions are a necessary fact of life, most especially for women and children. Do what you have to do to make yourself feel comfortable and secure.

not perfect but not a duck http://i55.photobucket.com/albums/g131/roundman2il/DSCF0300_zps6io1ygvm-1_zps4dhb2skx.jpg I'd get rid of that upper wing and call it good.

RE: Coffee.....what do you like?

Peet's Sumatra or Columbian. I brew it using the Melitta filter process. Factoid: Mr. Peet helped guide and advised Starbucks when they were first starting up.

RE: Wife did it

Any normally intelligent person can do this, with some proper coaching and practice. It's a skill, but it's not rocket science. Seriously!! and Amen!!

RE: I started a new Facebook group

I don't get the complaints about lack of / diminished activity on the B forum of rv dot net and simultaneously promoting a new B group at another venue. In terms of netiquette, it's considered extremely rude to "poach" from one site in order to promote attendance on ones own or another site of like kind.

RE: Wagon Trains

"Oh puhlease" is right! We have plenty of biker clubs throughout California that usually travel in packs on weekends. I've never had a problem with them, nor felt threatened, nor seen / experienced any nefarious behaviors by them on the road. I'd liken them to any RV group caravanning together. They're just out together enjoying their bikes and the camaraderie of other like-minded people. The Waco scene morons are the exception rather than the rule.

RE: socket size for heater element

My Suburban water heater anode rod takes a 1 1/16th socket. Be sure to get a deep socket or use an extension for easier access.

RE: Selling RV Parts

If the parts are RV brand specific, you might want to join / advertise on owner group sites, which often have a For Sale section.
