RE: Waldo Lake, Oregon

Shadow Bay tends to have slightly larger campsites. With your Jayco, I would not think any of the 3 campgrounds would be an issue. Anybody taken their RV here? I'm wondering which out of the three camps is the best fit for a trailer. We have a Jayco 22FB.

RE: Additives for Grey Water Holding Tank

I suspect you don't clean fish in the outside kitchen sink of the RV like I occasionally do? Not necessary in the grey tank! It will smell a little bit no matter what you do.

RE: Additives for Grey Water Holding Tank

X2 - I put 2 ounces in both the black and gray before every trip. I use this in both my grey and black tanks. Safe for septic tanks too. Pure Power Blue

RE: Another route question, Hwy 58 Oregon

Headed west you will only find three climbs. Two short sections between Hwy 97 and Odell Lake and the longest climb of about 1.2 miles up to Willamette Pass. After that you are mostly downhill all the way to I5. I find the slow nervous Nellies to be more problem going down the west side, so just take your time and hold your distance from the vehicle in front.

RE: CalMark RV Cover

We are going on the 4th year with our Calmark cover. If I was going to buy another cover, it would be made by Calmark! Sunbrella fabric in a custom fit for your RV.

RE: LED replacement bulbs

Two years ago we replaced all the 12V automotive style bulbs(except tail lights) in and outside our 5r. Did a lot of research and ended up buying the Ming's 1156/1141 Green Long Life 330 Lumens LED Bulb. These produce a bright warm light. If I was to do this again, I would order the same LED's. Anyone have experience or comments on replacing some/all of the incandescent bulbs with LED's?............. Rich

RE: Need counter space... looking for ideas

Have you considered a small folding table like this? http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41ikhDJnWRL._SX425_.jpg Similar table can be found at most discount stores. I keep one folded up and stored behind the couch back in our 5r.

RE: Interior space heating improvements

As Tom Smothers would say "thank you for the compliment":R Wave Catalytic Heaters. I use one in my 5r and it works great. No carbon monoxide to deal with. ICamel, you appear to have been educated beyond your intelligence.

RE: Interior space heating improvements

I am happy to report that I am still alive after using the Wave6 catalytic heater for another 5 nights. The CO alarm did not even make a peep.

RE: Too many keys ???

Check out rvlocksandmoredotcom. If you have a main door lock/deadbolt made by Global Link you can order cam locks for all the other keyed doors which will be the same as your main door lock. Alternatively, you can order the Global Link main door latch mechanism along with the keyed alike cams for the other doors. I did this recently and now all the door locks in my 5r are keyed the same.

RE: camco olympian 6, is it enough?

Short answer is "yes". My Wave-6 has been sufficient in overnight temps in the upper teens. I get about 10 nights of heat from a 5 gallon tank. PM me if you would like to discuss further. I have a 3 season rated 21 foot Palomino Gazelle travel trailer. I am thinking of taking a trip soon up to Missoula MT. Being from So Cal, my stock heater has been "enough" for most of the trips I've been on, for heating purposes. I have a 150 amp hour trojan T1275 battery. I have a good battery charger to top things off to 95-98% I have a 120W solar panel, programmable to 15.0V bulk charging. I have two 20 pound propane tanks. I'd like to stay off the heater in the camper that is powered by an electric fan, and plumb in a catalytic heater, like the Olympian radiant, instead, and crack a window and the vent above, to keep things at about 50 at night. Again, being this far north in May, in MT... from some experienced folks, is this a good idea, a bad idea, will it make enough heat, will it keep my battery healthy instead? Will I be burning through the propane at an alarming rate? What should I expect in days usage with frige and this heater while boondocking with 40 pounds of propane? How much fuel usage does it save over the stock heater, over a weeks usage with it 30F in the mornings in Missoula? I know propane is not overly loaded with calories per gallon, like diesel fuel.

RE: Scam??

Rotten SOB's called me at 5:40am this past week. I didn't want to get all worked up and not be able to go back to sleep, so I just replied "I don't think so....good bye" and hung up. Otherwise I like to waste their time.

RE: Interior space heating improvements

Hi Don! I just wanted to keep you up to date. I slept another 5 nights in my 5th wheel last week and used the heater +8 hours each night. No CO alarm sounded (I do have one and know that it works), and I am still alive. Do you want me to keep you updated after each trip?

RE: Fresh Water Tank Capacity or rather lack of

"chattering" was probably not a good choice words. As others have guessed, cycling on and off would have been a better description.

RE: Fresh Water Tank Capacity or rather lack of

You have to think "water conservation" in every use of your water! Is your water pump not "chattering" when used? If not you are wasting water. If showering are you shutting off the water supply between lather and rinse? If not you are wasting water. If doing dirty dishes, are you putting soap and hot water in your largest pot/pan and then washing and rinsing for there? If not you are wasting water. You should be able to go 5 days with 50 gallons of water in your fresh water tank.

RE: Replace the locks?

I paid $4.25 per lock all keyed the same has the RV entry/exit door. Is this the same as I spent 15 minutes and saved 15%.................

RE: Quick Simple Dinners?

Swift makes some really easy dry rub meats. Just wrap them in foil and put in the oven for about 3 hours (they suggest putting on the grill for a few minutes first, but it is not necessary). Vacuum seal in meal size portions using the freeze overnight before sealing method. Cook in the sealed bag for 15 minutes in boiling water. Serve with a rice side dish, or tossed green salad or baked potato. Yum! Frozen vacuum sealed foods will last a long time in the freezer.

RE: Quick Simple Dinners?

Cook or buy whatever you want prior to your trip. Put it into a sealable bag/pouch, but don't seal the top yet. Secure the top with a paper clip (or some other type of clip) and put it into your freezer at home for overnight keeping the top of the pouch upright so the contents don't leak out . Next morning after it has frozen, take it out and then vacuum seal the pouch. When you wan't to eat it, pop the pouch into a pot of boiling water for 15 minutes. Empty the pouch onto your plate/bowl and enjoy. If you haven't discovered Techni-Ice for keeping things frozen, do a Google search.

RE: Interior space heating improvements

Continue to tilt at your windmills Don. Have to good day! Hi Icamel, They do produce CO. Your post implied they do not do so. That is misinformation. Use a vented heater, or put another blanket on the bed.

RE: Interior space heating improvements

I wrote there is "no carbon monoxide to deal with". If there was carbon monoxide to deal with then I would not use one in my RV. There are many sources of carbon monoxide, yet you don't have to deal with it unless there is insufficient ventilation. With respect to ventilation being necessary, fire/flame consumes oxygen. Without sufficient ventilation these heaters will deprive you of your life due to insufficient oxygen, not carbon monoxide. The heaters do have a low oxygen shut off that turns off the propane supply. As a responsible user of a catalytic heater I insure there is an adequate amount of oxygen available. If you want to use this type of heater and take adequate precautions they will provide the type of "Interior space heating improvements" the OP was inquiring about. The fact that these specific heaters have been manufactured and used in RV's for decades is sufficient proof of their fitness for use. Don: ...For every instance of someone encountering carbon monoxide poisoning there are literally thousands...that have not been poisoned using catalytic heaters. Yes, they do put out a small amount of CO.... Icamel, you said; Wave Catalytic Heaters....No carbon monoxide to deal with. No smell. No noise.... which was wrong. Now you start talking about ventilation. Why does it need ventilated if there is no CO output? Not trying to beat on you, but there are naive people who will see a statement like you made originally and believe it without checking.
