NEW: Quartzsite Area Off Road Atlas

For those of you who spend time in Quartzsite and off road there is a new Off Road Atlas that will be out about October 5th from what I understand. It appears to contain quite a bit of info for the Quartzsite Atv/Utv off roaders. The flyer can be seen here for further info.

RE: Direct TV Remote Location

When ever I have to talk to a person in customer service and have a hard time understanding their accent, I tell them I can't understand them and I need to talk to someone who can speak English, it usually works.

RE: Voltage drop measured at Brakes

I ran #8 copper wire from my controller back to the axles on the + wire and #8 back to the axles from the battery negative post. I have just a small amount of voltage drop from the controller back to the axles now. The small gauge wire there previously was the cause of low voltage at the brakes.

RE: Yeti coolers?

I guess that if you need to keep things cold they are. You can read the reviews to get a good idea. I love mine for ATV'ing around in the desert.

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.
