RE: question about macerator use

I boondock 10 months out of the year and always use the macerator into my portable tank and what I do is after emptying black tank is pour 2 five gallon pails of water down the toilet to help flush out a residual solids. After dumping and closing the black tank valve, I pour 4-5 gallons of water into the toilet, so I have plenty of water in the tank to start with. I've been using this method for ten years now, so far so good.

RE: quartzsite - next year 2019

The new Walmart and Costco are just to the West of the YMCA and the In and Out burger joint.

RE: Superbowl Ideas

No NFL for us, not after the kneelers took over, we haven't watched NFL since then. On Sunday we will be going on a 50 mile ride here in the Quartzsite, Arizona area. Sunny and 76 degrees on Sunday, that reminds me, we need more sunscreen.

RE: How is "Q" after the storm?

"How is "Q" after the storm?" The dust is gone and my lawn chair fell over.

RE: Suggestions to remove ice from solar panels

We are down in Quartzsite, Arizona, what is this stuff you call "ice". This reminds me, we need more sunscreen.

RE: Winegard Traveler installation questions

I've had my trav'ler for about two years now and have never encountered a problem with it. I run my Trav'ler, Direct TV HD DVR, and TV all off a 600 watt inverter, it all works great all the time, any time. I get to my new location push one button and I am set up in about ten minutes.

RE: Shower Drain Not Draining Much

My shower drain was slow like yours is and I got the Zip-It and ran it up and down the drain and pulled out a wad of hair and then worked at it a few more times until totally clear. Now I just use it about once a month and just pull a small amount of hair out and the shower drains great.

RE: Quartzsite report

This mornings temperature is 61 with a high supposed to be 89 and dropping into the 70's by the 31st. Great to be in Quartzsite now. We're going out for a ATV ride this morning and do a little prospecting with the metal detector and looking for the wash through the mountains loaded with Quartz.

RE: Water Heater on or off when Full Timing

I wish more people would realize how loud one of those gas wh's are at 3am. I never noticed waterheater noise at 3am, we're fast asleep.

RE: Quartzsite report

I'm here in La Posa South and run my genny about 2 to 4 hours in the afternoon depending on the temp. Quartzsite is great this time of year: temps not to bad, winter population not to bad yet, great trails for riding the quad all over the place, and great food at a reasonable price at the Main Street Eatery. Plus the coffee is free and you get great service.

RE: Generator fuel pump?

When my fuel pump died, the generator just stopped running. I could turn the genny over and it would start if I squirted some gas in the carb and once the gas was used up it would die. I change fuel filters yearly. I ordered one online and installed it and the genny ran great. Now I keep a spare in my genny stuff drawer.

RE: Quartzsite 2018

You might give RV Lifestyles a call. Good people and great shop.

RE: Quartzsite 2018

Not sure, Mt. Quail open all year round but has limited seating and is kinda pricey, most everyone is open now, my favorite is the Main Street Eatery, plenty of seats, good,quick food, great prices and great staff. Oh yea, almost forgot free coffee and tea at the Eatery.

RE: Quartzsite 2018

Another great morning in Quartzsite watching the sun come up over the mountains to the east. I'm at La Posa South LTVA, south of Quartzsite, not many people here yet. 92 degrees here this afternoon and a cool low 70's by morning. My favorite restaurant opened up this week, it's a great place to do the laundry on one side and have breakfast on the other side. And it's cheaper than some of the other places for a meal.

RE: Quartzsite 2018

Kevin, I'm curious .... wanna tell us how you keep cool in that super heat when drycamping? I'm always looking for new approaches in dealing with summer heat when camping without hookups. RV hookups is a no-brainer in the heat and doesn't count - the real challenge is what you're doing! Shade cloth and use of AC with genny power and do outside work in cool of morning. Oh yea, ice, Beer, and Scotch in various amounts.

RE: Quartzsite 2018

I'm here in the Quartzsite LTVA right now. It's still a cool 104 degrees right now. The Sunrises and Sunsets are great. Hardly any traffic and it's a great quiet time. But that will change soon.
