RE: Newbie here - Is R-Pod a good choice?

I agree that you can get more bang for your buck with a trailer besides the R-pod. Look at the small Amerilites & Jaycos.

RE: Tempered glass dented

My guess would be that it chipped out when something hit it. Go to a windshield repair place and have them put some of their epoxy in it. This. I've had dings like that before.

RE: Camp Site Terminology

"Developed" generally means a site that is designated, with some sort of numbering system, usually in a group with other sites. Usually the site is cleared and graded with some gravel or pavement. There may be a tent pad, picnic table, or lantern post (or not). The opposite of developed is dispersed, which means that there are no designated sites, no amenities, and no preparation of the site.

RE: Boondocking in bear country?

Leave nothing remotely resembling or smelling of food outside. If you do use the grill and don't want to clean it, move it at least 50 feet away from the camper. Clean up any crumbs and spills outside. Keep your food inside completely contained, hidden, and out of sight of windows. Same goes for your trash and food scraps.

RE: Oscillations, whats the cause

Get new shocks, higher rated WD bars, and check your tire pressures!

RE: Equal-i-zer Hitches

The above referenced noise will greatly decrease once there is some wear on the bars. Equal-i-zer is a great hitch, with good weight distribution and sway control. Well worth the money. You do have to read the directions and set it up correctly.

RE: Dry camping

Also, don't leave the water running while you are washing dishes. Wash in one sink & stack the soapy dishes in the other. Then rinse all the soapy dishes at once. Agree with others about the low-flow shower head & navy showers. The Oxygenic shower heads are great.

RE: Help!- Trying to rent a car at airport to pick upRV

After shelling out the bucks to buy a motorhome, it looks like the dealer should be willing to pick you up. This.

RE: Brand new battery dies quickly

Your furnace is the culprit. To run it all night you need a good-size battery bank. Best thing to do is get the place warm, get everyone plenty of blankets, and leave the furnace set as low as possible.

RE: So what are folks average MPG when towing

Well I am towing a 2800lb base weight figure 3600 actual with full propane tanks Battery and gear, Towing with a 2011 Nissan pathfinder V6 Pa is hilly so in 4th gear allot is automatic but to limit beating the tranny I run it manual, Well I am getting 8.7 mpg. Not thrilled but oh well having fun anyway. We have a 600 mile trip to Myrtle beach planned so hoping no more than 4 fill ups one way. You are wise to run in manual.... and up hill take it down to 3rd probably if it is a 4 speed. Your mileage sounds reasonable, but if you want to improve it, the best thing you can do is slow down. 55-60 in the right lane of an interstate is a good place to be.

RE: Newbie..... Batteries?

1000 watts/12 V = 84 amps 84 amps X 0.25 hours = 21 amp-hours 21 amp-hours/0.8 inverter efficiency = 27 amp-hours As you can see it's not a huge total amount of energy. BUT it is a huge current drain in a short period of time. You need a huge battery bank and super-heavy wiring to pull 84 amps in 15 minutes. Listen to those with experience in such matters. I would find some other way to heat the item in question. Try the range top or oven. People have cooked without microwaves for thousands of years, you can manage it too.

RE: HELP!...What can I do to keep fridge cold and food safe?

Freeze some bottles of water at home and stash them in the fridge and some in the freezer. Replace the ones in the fridge as they thaw. Also stay out of the fridge as much as possible.

RE: My friend calls me crazy!

Tell your friend not to buy a camper and have a nice day. This, LOL. You can take a RV lots of places where there are NO hotels. Lots of beautiful, amazing, places. And besides that, I hate hotels. They are always stuffy and airless. You have to drag your stuff in and out every time you stay. Then there are the potential issues with bedbugs, foot fungus, allergies, etc that can be totally avoided when you stay in a RV.

RE: HELP! Wife wants to go camping!!!!

Oh, grandmothers will do a lot to be near grandchildren. I know from experience. To find campgrounds, I go to RV Park Reviews dot com. Good luck and enjoy your granddaughter. This. And also... think of this as camping means to an end just like your other trips. This might be the start of some really great trips for you and you DW together.

RE: get out of the heat

UP Michigan--but beware that RV parks with full hookups are not common (they can be found, though)---somewhere on Lake Superior Door County, Michigan---may be some warm days but nothing like Texas Coastal Washington State---Olympic National Park, Seattle Mile High Campground High Cool Places
