I have an H23 that lives in the MoHo. It is listed on my account as being in the MoHo. Due to the location of my property (against a mountain, north of Los Angeles), we have DNS at home. We have 6 receivers. Five in the house and one in the MoHo.
Depending on how long we are going to stay at a given location, I either use the crank-up Winegard on the roof or the Slimline 3-LNB dish on a tripod, purchased from TV4RV.
Did The Duke have an RV?
Nah. He was into boats. He had a converted Littoral minesweeper that was really decked out, the "Wild Goose".
After he passed away, the Church of Scientology bought it and used it to prosthelize in South America. I worked on the electronics for years, and helped with the conversion.
What a shame!
Over the July 4 weekend, we were camped at a Forest Service CG alongside Lake Isabella.
They have strict rules stating that everyone should be off the lake, and off the beach (in this area) by sundown.
Several groups, including one church group, ignored this, and stayed overnight on the beach.
I mentioned it to the CG Host who said that the beach was patrolled by BLM, not the Forest Service. The County Rangers also did nothing to discourage the illegal campers, and we felt like intruders trying to access the beach area!
They, also, didn't pay to camp there, but we had to pay the Forest Service rate to dry camp.
There are signs all over the place stating that beach camping in that area is not allowed.
Methinks I'm going to haul my boat back from there, and find someplace else to go.
We made the mistake of joining daughter and Son-in-law at Lake Isabella in Southern Calif. Had to run the generator 24/7, only one useable boat ramp, and people illegally camping directly on the beach, forcing you to walk through their "campsites" to access your boat!
It took two hours to launch and three hours to recover the boat!
We complained to the Camp Host, and to the Rangers about the beach squatters, but they both said that they could do nothing, as the BLM was in charge of the beach area! There are signs all over the place that say "Day Use Only", but I imagine that the beach campers couldn't read them!
I had two beach campers asking if they could use our bathroom, as they were pregnant and couldn't walk the extra 100' to the potty! They had plenty of cars or trucks to drive up there! Luckily, my wife was in there when they asked!
Oh, and the weather people lied! They said that nighttime temps up there would be in the high sixties, and it never got below 85! During the day 103-105! Had to go buy ga$ and add it to the Moho to be sure I made it thru Saturday nite.
Hardly used the boat at all, due to all the water toys buzzing around. Too hot to fish, and hard to navigate thru all the buzzers!
How do you spell curmudgeon?
I just leave my inverter on all the time. It only powers the entertainment systems in the front of the coach, the one in the bedroom, and two other accessory outlets that we use for the laptop and misc. chargers. We go for days dry camping this way. I run the genny for a few hours in the morning and a few in the evening, and never have battery problems.
After all, the inverter and batteries are a UPS!
Wow, one person refi's and it is Armageddon.
LOL! My thoughts exactly. I didn't mention that I'm very "right side up" in the MoHo, and will now stay that way until the end. BTW, those costs included overnight Fed-Exing, DMV fees, etc.
For those that use it on their decals, do you then just wax over it / the rest of the side walls?
Can you then apply more 303 over the wax in the future?
Sorry if stupid questions. :h
A little wax on the decals won't hurt, but the 303 is made as a protectant for decals, plastic, etc., and works quite well on all exterior vents, covers, valves, TIRES, and "like" stuff.
I use it all over my boat, and on all of my tires. I use it on the dash of the MoHo, and all my boat seats.
My Jeep Seat covers came with a little bottle of 303, which should say something.........
But it ain't wax.
It'll make anything look good, until it rains, and then it's gone.
That said, I use it to make my boat look good, my old Jeep look good, and my Moho decals look good.
I also believe that it may extend the life of tires, but can't prove it. My six year old Miche's look new!
My credit union had a "sale" on used RV/re-fi loans at 6.25% last week, and I just re-fi'd at Essex for 4.85%!
When I bought the RV two years ago, the best used rate at my CU was 8.5%.
It took two days, and no tooth-pulling to get it done, and my fees, including overnight shipping of the paperwork, were less than $400. They offered to roll this into the loan, but I declined. I cut my loan term in half, and have lower payments.
Thank you, Danielle! Mo' Money for fuel!
Coming home from Lake Isabella on Memorial Day, we counted three awnings along the 14 Freeway! Quit counting boat cushions and coolers; too many!
Wow, I could not even imagine losing an awning....
It's more common than you think. When washing your RV, you can accidentally flip the cam on the awning, or the pawl can fail.
In high wind conditions, anything that can come loose, will.
We had gusts of up to 70MPH. I lost the screw-trim on my fiver on the same road a few years ago. Had to pull over and snatch it off.
It took me an hour after I got home on Memorial Day weekend to uncurl my fingers enough to grasp my beer and sandwich while dumping!
It happened to me when we got home from Memorial Day camping! I had to pee in the middle of the night, and thought I was still in the Moho.
Took a couple of seconds to square away. Glad I had the time!
I'm on my fourth FR product, two fivers and two MoHo's, and although they're not Prevost-based products, you get a lot of bang for your buck.
My current Georgetown is worth more, dealer wholesale, than I paid for it two years ago, and runs and works fiiiine!
I rarely use the dash air, since it seems like wherever I go is uphill both ways, and we live in the desert. You only consume about .6 gallons per hour with the Onan 5500 with both roof ac's running, and you're not using engine horsepower to run the dash air.
We have two Roombas and a Scooba that mops the kitchen and breakfast room tile. They're great, but the high-capacity aftermarket battery makes them even better. There are a couple of places that they get stuck, but we've learned to block them witha trash can or something.
When we get home from the beach (or anywhere, for that matter), I just turn one loose in the moho and let 'er rip for a couple of hours. It hets places you never would with a regular vac.
