RE: Boondocking near Major City Experiences

Rig size is a huge determining factor here. We've (I've) parked a B-style conversion van all over in several major cities, a truck camper in almost as many places, and now tend to the more industrial/commercial side of town with a fifth wheel. Even as large as we currently are, there's almost always an empty yard in the warehouse district to fit for an overnight. Depending on location, and requirements, we have left the trailer and toured with the truck. For overnighting while travelling, Wal-Mart, or other box store parking lots work, as well as truck stops.

RE: Route Suggestion Glacier NP USA to Cassiar Hwy BC

Help us help you. What part of the season? What are your interests? Do you like museums, or find them tedious? Do you enjoy seeing small animals stuffed and posed in old-timey costumes?

RE: Solar Questions

MC4 connectors are garbage for repetitive connect/disconnect use. Use Anderson.

RE: Difference between two Alliance fuel filters

Why would you use anything but FleetGaurd filters on an expensive engine?

RE: wiring res fridge

If you plug it into inverter direct - it will work, and then you'll have to unplug it from inverter, turn the inverter off and plug fridge into wall receptacle every time you have the grid power. To have it trouble-free, you keep it plugged into the closest AC receptacle, just like you do at home. AC receptacles, in turn, should be switched between grid power and inverter, all of them, because you might also want to use MW or some other AC device. You use transfer switch to go from inverter to grid power and back, and it will also turn the inverter on and off. If it's a portable temporary 120V fridge - then yes, plug it into inverter when you need it. Plug it direct to the inverter, let the convertor take care of the batteries, when plugged in.

RE: RV security

Paid insurance bill, valuables removed, door and storage bays left unlocked. Have had people inside, but no damage or theft. Neighbors on both sides have had significant damage and items removed.

RE: Does trailer connector need to be in pick up box

You either have an in-bed receptacle, or you want one. I've added multiple kits, similar to RoyB's, to family members and friends trucks. All advantage, no disadvantage.

RE: How do you put chains on your RV's?

I do the same things with chains as my otr company had me do. I park it till the roads are clear. Pretty much the same here. Don't forget the trip to the truck stop for coffee refills.

RE: Mid March RV Site Alberta east of Red Deer

Westerner RV Park. Right in Red Deer. Prairie Junction Stettler.

Don't see much value in an 8 gauge cord, suited to 30 amp service, unless it's for a looong run. A 50 amp RV needs 8/4 wire, not 8/3.

RE: spare tire stuck under trailer

Possibly not Rust. Due to pick-ups losing under-mounted spares, the manufacturers have been forced to place a lock on the cable holding the tire. As the unit goes down the road, the jarring of the highway causes the cable to squeeze down between layers of cable underneath. This creates slack in the cable, which allows the tire to swing. The "cure" has been a clamp that grabs the cable, before enough slack is available to allow swing. The end result is a tire that can't be dropped, without aid from a tire shop or dealership. I'm not sure if trailers have this "feature", but even a little bit of cable squeezed down between the layer underneath can get hung up tight enough to appear to be stuck.

RE: Question for knowledgeable solar experts

What happened to RV.Net? A whole bunch of over-tightened panties, and hurt feelings? Everyone should take a chill pill. The information freely given on this site is too valuable to let personal issues interfere.
