RE: Easy to store hashbrowns

What is the rehydrating process? Fill carton with boiling water, let stand for 12 minutes, drain and cook. I could see a use for this product if freezing was an issue(no space or no freezer), but I can cook hash browns from frozen in less than 12 minutes........FWIW.

RE: how much propane in tank?

I use a simple handheld baggage scale to weigh my DOT cylinders. I think it cost about $9... #MeToo

RE: Mini-catalytic heater for keeping tanks warm off-grid??

The real issue is transporting the box -- we don't have any spare room in the cargo bay of our truck. Our soundbox gets put on the dinette table(on top of a towel to prevent damage) and secured in place with a ratchet strap. Works great!

RE: Stove vent

This is an interesting and unique modification found on the Northwood RV Owners Association website using magnets to hold the vent door closed until the exhaust fan is turned on. http://www.nroa2003.com/forum/forum/message-board/modifications/262110-ventline-exhaust-vent-mod I think this could be done without removing the vent housing from the RV wall exterior.

RE: Wave Heater Install

When set on the low setting our Wave6 heater burns about 1/3 gallon of propane in 10 hours of use(verified by weight). We open two opposing windows and a roof vent 1/2 inch when using the cat heater. There is minimal condensation which collects in the window drains camping in weather where the outside temperatures reach mid 20's. The minimum inside temperature is in the upper 50's without using the camper furnace. On another note, we have two CO monitors in the camper. One is an Atwood(Model# 32703) which is RV approved and has a digital readout. The Wave6 has NEVER caused the readout to register any CO level. Use of the oven without having the vent fan on is another story!

RE: Restoring Microfiber Towels To "Like New"

Hand wash your microfiber towels(or lens cleaning cloth) in a solution of 95% white vinegar + 5% rubbing alcohol. Wring dry and then let air dry. Save and reuse the liquid if you want.

RE: Tv viewing

We are able to view the TV in our AF992 from the dinette. The TV is mounted to the wall with a "Mount-It MI-429".

RE: Landing Gear not working with switch/motor

Most landing gear systems have an inline fuse that gets popped when the landing gear is "over run" at the fully up position. Start following the wiring from the switch to the batteries looking for a fuse holder. If that is the situation, I would buy a "auto re-settable" fuse and put it in place of the standard auto type fuse.

RE: Plastic tote Portable 2000W Generator quieting box

I cannot look at these designs without thinking of overall operating temperatures of the generators. Has anyone placed any type of thermometer inside to read operating temps? Since by design, intake air adds to cooling where are the air intakes on these boxes? I love this idea, we have a pair of Honda EU2000's and I usually only operate one unless I need the AC. I would love to know how much the DB readings are after the box. Bill I did..............here is my post from a year ago. https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/28956619/gotomsg/28964092.cfm#28964092 With a remote sensor placed near the exhaust outlet of my box the temp recorded was 134F after running for 15 minutes. The inside box temp with the sensor placed near the top handle of the Honda remained at the outside air ambient temperature of 72F. No fans added to move air inside the enclosure. The key as others have noted is to isolate the exhaust(both genset and motor) from the engine side.

RE: Start looking for a boondocking site: eclipse (Aug 21 2017)

1,000 Oregon campsites available directly in the path of totality. http://www.philomathrodeo.org/eclipse/http://www.philomathrodeo.org/eclipse/ No guarantee on clear weather. Philomath is immediately adjacent to the west of Corvallis, and only 20 minutes from I5. I have no affiliation with the organization in the above link. Resurrecting this topic: The number of people expected in Oregon is huge. I'm wondering how easy it will be to just boondock along a side road off US 26 in central Oregon the night before the eclipse. Certainly there are no actual campsites open anywhere in that region. Any ideas from you Oregoners?

RE: Inflatable Boat and 5th wheel

Some people with 5th wheels and inflatable boats build an enclosure under the RV for the boat. I did that when we had a 5'r. Made the exterior skin out of poly-carbonate roofing panels. Frame was made with aluminum L-bar. I carried the outboard motor attached to a wood T-piece that fit into the stake holder in the pickup bed rail just behind the drivers side of the cab so it traveled upright.

RE: propane tank

What jerryjay11 wrote! Most RV's have a spot where supply lines run through the floor and all you have to do is remove the foam sealant, run your line, and re-seal the hole. If your RV has a CO(Carbon Monoxide) detector buy a second one and mount it at the opposite end of the RV. If your RV doesn't have a CO detector, buy two. You are better off finding a way to run the LP line from outside the RV.

RE: CPAP Machines RV's

I have been camping using my CPAP(Resmed S8 + Humidaire 3i) since 2008. I need the humidification and almost exclusively dry camp. My solution was 2 Group 27 batteries connected to a 300/600W pure sine wave inverter to power the CPAP. When we had a 5th wheel the batteries were stored under the bed. With the truck camper they fit nicely inside a "hamper" next to the bed. I connect the batteries to a charger/maintainer so they are fully charged for my next camping trip as the RV is parked next to the house and shore power plugged in. I can get four nights of sleep out of the two batteries without needing a recharge. If I camp longer, I use our Honda EU2000i generator plus a battery charger that I carry to recharge. Yes I know that the CPAP can be powered directly from the batteries without an inverter, but you can't do that and use the humidifier. And for you willy-nilly's out there, I provide adequate ventilation to the batteries when they are being charged.

RE: rear camera on Arctic Fox picture

My camper is presently under cover so I can't take a photograph, but here is what I did. Mounted the camera to a bracket that is attached to the ladder tube frame. It projects out to the right from the ladder so their is no impediment to using the ladder. As you can see there is very close access to the marker light. https://c1.staticflickr.com/4/3770/33173126750_cbd37bb0ed_z.jpgCapture by camelwhit, on Flickr This is the bracket(called bull bar bracket). It is designed for mounting a light bar to a vehicle. You will need the 1" diameter size(measure the diameter of your ladder tube to be sure). I only had to drill one extra hole in the bracket arm to attach the camera to it. You can find this on eBay. https://c1.staticflickr.com/4/3894/33173126820_c8fe5036c2.jpgCapture1 by camelwhit, on Flickr

RE: Pancake in a Can

Fry up a batch at home. Freeze what you don't eat in a ziploc bag that contains however many you plan to eat at a time. Take out of the freezer the night before. Heat and eat the next morning. No muss, no fuss, very little cleanup. It is what the wife does at home. If you have a microwave it is all that much simpler. You can do the same with waffles. Our grandsons call pancakes "flat waffles".
