RE: Realistic Budget 2.0

Depreciation of and replacement of your RV is a BIG item and it's not in there. Granted, it's a long term issue but my opinion is that this item is the biggest expense of RVing and most RVers leave it out. Estimate when you will sell or trade your unit, what you will get for it, subtract that from what you paid and divide by the number of nights spent in it and you may be shocked. This figure can equal or exceed a daily motel but of course there are many variables.

RE: Phone drug scam..??

Start by--Is she expecting to have a prescription ready? Many pharmacies will call and say when ready. But they should state the name of the pharmacy and none I use require any kind of response or information. They are simply informing me it's ready. Your's sounds bogus. When any doubt, don't respond.

RE: Glad we didn't quit over high gas prices.

Another thing gas prices have taught us is that, like the stock market, we can't predict. Several years ago we thought it would be $5 and rising by now. So, I firmly believe 2 yrs from now gas could be $5 or could be $1.50.

Glad we didn't quit over high gas prices.

Here today gas took a 25 cent jump and it started me thinking about the days of around $4 gas and my 30 ft. motor home. As I am, I bet most of you are glad you didn't throw up your hands (and wallets) and quit RVing several years ago over high gas prices? I thought back then and now that fuel is not the most costly part of RVing when compared to motor home depreciation. Even if gas goes up enough to cost a couple hundred more on a trip, it's not enough to quit. Back then I pondered just how high it would have to be to restrict my travel. So far haven't found out.

RE: Potable Water Etiquette

This is worse. I once caught a guy allowing is dog to drink from the community water, mouth on faucet. I said,"You do realize that people get their drinking water there" and he pretended not to know. Gross.

RE: Potable Water Etiquette

No, I think your concern is appropriate. Those aren't meant for individual units. It would be OK if the person is filling their tank I guess. I probably wouldn't make an issue of it if there are plenty of other faucets near by. But, if not, I would unhook it to get the water I need.

RE: How do you stabilize your Class C when parked for camping?

We do nothing to stabalize our 30 ft Class C and have no problem.

RE: Boondocking near Major City Experiences

Might be ify. We have stayed in quite a few Walmarts, for example, and the only 1 where we felt a little uneasy because of drunk or crazies walking through at night was in a large city.

RE: What do you use for a BBQ?

The Weber I use is great. It's black, sort of rectangular with a lid and works off the small screw on propane tanks. There are several sizes and mine was around $100. Only problem is that aren't tall enough to do something large like a chicken. Great for steaks, chops, pieces of chicken and I have done a small roast in foil.

RE: MPG woes

Sounds bad. I get about that + or - 2 with our 30 ft. Class C V-10. But before you give up realize that the way we check MPG isn't real accurate and 1 short trip isn't enough to get close to a true reading. But, if you can't get 12 or 15, I guess why have a Class B?

RE: How do you flush out the fresh water tank?

I don't obsess too much about it. I just make sure to drain after an outing, then some bleach and refill before next trip. The big thing is that we just don't use our tank for drinking. We fill a plastic container with a faucet on it for drinking, coffee, etc and a couple of extra big clorox bottles full of back-up water. I guess we could still get something from showering but hopefully the bleach covers that.

RE: Explain this

My guess is that going down does not cancel up because the motor is still running and using some fuel?

RE: Quick overnight stops in route

My only concern with cracker barrel is that aren't open 24 hrs. so no security?

RE: Full time in smaller RV

I think it's all a state of mind. You can decide what size you need to be content. Especially if you never expect any RV to be like a house.

RE: Explain this

Fuel consumed is almost always going to be most effected by the weight towed and the speed driven, then hills, wind and to a small degree a few other factors. Also, our usual method of checking MPG isn't really very accurate so MPG could vary on paper from time to time even if everything is unchanged.

RE: Quick overnight stops in route

Walmart has worked fine for us 6 or 8 times but we were turned down at 1 during Christmas season. I don't ask if there are already several overnighters (common in the West) but I do if none. Sometimes they allow even if posted otherwise

RE: Trail Ridge not quite ready for you ...

Haven't been to RMNP for a long time and I don't remember; are there any length restrictions? We are towing a small car with a 30 ft. Class C.

RE: 5th whee insurance?

I haven't had many claims but I just always use the regular company that insures our car, home, etc. and have done so for many RV's. I kind of think that the ads to use special companies for RV's may just be hype or advertisement. I did have 1 significant claim for our present Motor home(my fault) and there was no problem.

RE: National Park Camping

I went back and read some of the posts and I don't get the best time to be in winter. Not for parks like YNP and Tetons. Most of YNP is at 8000 ft. or higher; very cold, lots of snow and most campgrounds closed. Perhaps OK for some in Utah and points south?

RE: National Park Camping

Just go to each park's website for excellent information. But, with 40 ft. You're going to have some problems finding big enough sites in many national parks and will have to do some careful planing. It's not just the size of the sites but the interior roads, trees in the way, etc. Or a campground might have sites but only 2 or 3 in the whole campground. Also, don't expect hook-ups. Yellowstone does have one RV park with hook-ups and it might work. Also there is Flagg Ranch between YNP and Grand Teton. If some say "no problem" don't believe it.
