What's your Boondocking Temperature?

I'm Boondocking in the El Paso Mountains outside of Ridgecrest, CA. lots of sun and only supposed to be 107 degrees today- but it is a dry heat. I have found one small gully with shallow bedrock and a goodly amount of Gold. 1.5 oz. for the two weeks I have been working this bedrock. I work it from about 5am to around 11am, then its TTS Time (Tacos, Tequila, and Siesta).

RE: We just put a deposit down on our 1st 5th wheel

Did the old owners have the Jayco Recall done or is this something you still have done?

RE: Recommend Phoenix destination and route from Wisconsin

I hope you have two Air Conditioners and can park in the shade.

RE: Multiple Electrical Problems

Could be a bad battery, or is the battery out of water, you do keep the water up in the battery up-correct? Or the the converter is bad, did you turn the 120 volt breaker to the converter all the way off and then back on? Probably time to get the voltmeter out and do some troubleshooting or hire someone. The information is out there, all you have to do is let it in.

RE: something ate my wiring

Just curious, what kind of anti-rodent protection have you been using. You do know that most auto wiring insulation is now soy-based. Mice, rats, etc just love to chew on the insulation. The information is out there, all you have to do is let it in.

RE: Backing into A Blind Spot

I would ask for a better site, if that fails go somewhere else or if your really need to use that site just remember if you have to hit something hit something cheap.

RE: Adding A Second Water Heater

I installed two 12 volt water valves in my trailer, one at my kitchen sink hot water line and one the bathroom sink hot water line and plumbed them both back the fresh water tank fill pex pipe. To operate the valves I installed a 12 volt push and hold to operate switch. The install took about 4 hours and a six pack and was not hard at all. Now at the kitchen sink I push the switch for 11 seconds for hot water and the bathroom sink takes 7 seconds. It doesn't sound like much, but at the days end I probably saved about 2 minutes of water going to waste, which when you are boondocking is a lot. Would I do it again---In a heartbeat. The information is out there, all you have to do is let it in.

RE: I am starting to get sick of the snow...

Snow!!!!!!!When I retired my one resolution was that I never wanted to touch a snow shovel again. Right now in Quartzsite it is 67 degrees and supposed to have a high of 85 and sunny all day. That reminds me I need more sunscreen. Have fun. The information is out there, all you have to do is let it in.

RE: Flood Damage Query

Have you called your insurance agent? What did they have to say? You would get better answers from your agent than from a bunch of keyboard rangers, don't ya think? The information is out there, all you have to do is let it in.

RE: Snowbirds: Where to go in the summer?

RE: ? for electric/electronic experts.

One more idea. Assuming somewhere in the future I will get big solar panels and big battery bank and will try to run AC with this inverter. I have generator with automatic transfer switch that suppose to be very fast. What are the chances that I will start AC on generator power, having inverter on as well and at the moment I kill generator, the 1750W inverter should keep the AC running? Am I missing something? You should be able to run an AC with this inverter because what could possibly go wrong?

RE: Location of camera switcher

Just a guess, but could it be at the end of the wires?

RE: Draining fresh water tank

It takes awhile to drain, but that's what they invented beer for.

RE: Emergency Brake Problem

I have a 2001 winnabego Itasca Sunrise, my problem is when I set the emergency brake and when in park, on a downhill slope it moves forward, what could be the problem? Just a guess here, but your emergency brake may need to be adjusted- ya think?

RE: Mouse moat for RV's in storage

Do you think it is a portable moat? What if you are on a extended RV trip? Can the moat be tow-able? Does it have a trailer hitch? Do they make a portable blowup version? Now I can't sleep.

RE: Is it just me?

I had that happen to me at a park, it was the rig next to mine and it was a Four Winds 2008 Class C towing a Honda Fit w/ tow dolly and I wish he had used some chemicals.
