RE: Older 7.3 diesel owners F350 - need advice

I own a 2002 Ford, 7.3, DRW with 204,000 miles..pulling a Designer Legacy, 36', 15,000 lbs....as full timers, we've pulled all over in the Rockies, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, Arizona and many more. It pulls just fine and would not hesitate taking off to Alaska with it. Keep up the maint., oil changes, etc and you will do fine.

RE: Workcamper News

We subscribed to Workamper News for about 4 years and never received a job from it...upgraded our resume every 6 months....you have to figure there are several thousand people seeing the same jobs you are posted....they get hit from all sides with applications from all over. We have always done better contacting a campground ourselves. Pick an area you would like to be in, find out all the caampgrounds in that area...send each one an inquirey along with a picture of yourself....Large campgrounds have more openings for single workers than small mom & pop type. Check out the large KOA just west of Mount Rushmore...they hire over 100 workers each year...pay is what you're looking for also

RE: Black Tank Build-up

Put about 20 gallons of water in the black tank...dump a bag of ice cubes in the tank...take off and drive. The movement of the trailer bounces the ice cubes all over breaking up waste. The ice melts and when you stop, hook up the sewer hose and eliminate the build up...flush the tank and ready to go again. When traveling, I dump ice cubes in to clean tank...the tsnk is clean, ice melted by the time I get to the next campground.

RE: 5ers with good enough frames to double tow a Jeep

Dbl check state laws on dbl towing...not all states allow it along with a length limit...check with your insurance if they cover dbl tow. Then the jeep has to have it's own brake system also. Lots of work involved

RE: Camp Host

Just a suggestion....hardly ever does an employer search rv.net for workers...as a seasoned workamper, deciding where you want to work, Google the company to get the website or email address...then write a inquiry as to whether or not they need help. Alway include a picture of yourself so right away they can get an idea who they're talking with

RE: vehicle license in SD

You will have to make a trip to SD, join a mail forwarding company (So you will have an address) turn in your current drivers license, have your picture taken for a new one, go to the courthouse and switch titles to SD....If you go to Rapid City, Americas Mailbox is located there....you can google to get phone & info

RE: Who offers dual pane windows?

Almost every RV has the option to add insulated windows...but to keep the cost down, many do not make them with it....usually you have to order the unit you want with insulated windows, extra insulation in the walls, ceiling and floor, 2nd air conditioner, larger water heater, larger refridge, and the list goes on...If you know what you want and are willing to wait, order it the way you want it.

RE: Campground Hosting Rules

Workamping is like any other job. You apply and send a resume of experience or talents. You let them know you have a dog and also let them know what you will or will not do. Like clean bathrooms, cook, dig up broken water lines are some duties some people refuse to do. If they have no problem with you having a dog, they will say so. At least you were upfront with them in the beginning

RE: KOA corporate not fan of monthlies?

If they can get $40 a night or $600 a month...I know I wouldn't do monthly if I didn't have to (40 x 30 = 1200)

RE: Define ''All Season'' campers please

I think "all season" means anything from 110 degree heat to -20 degree cold, you can survive..I have extra Owens Corning in the walls and ceiling, bubble wrap for a barrier along with enclosed underbelly and finally insulated windows. I stay warm in winter and cool in summer. I had to order my camper with these extras but well worth the extra money...almost all units sre only slightly equiped for extreme weather

RE: Boondocking around Phoenix area

I think without the safety and security of a resort or campground, you are leaving yourself open for uninvited guests. I've been wintering in Phoenix area for 7 years and there aren't many places outside the city limits I would boondock. Almost all Walmarts don't alow it and more and more large parking lots discourage overnight stays...If you spend $250,000 for a motorhome, spending $25-35 a night is nothing....weekly discounts as well as monthly rates make staying for the winter reasonable....finding a place to dump is harder also

RE: Black tank question

In time, waste trends to collect and build up so the tank sprayer doesn't remove it totally. Clean your tank as best you can then add 10 gallons or so of water. Dump a 10# bag of ice cubes down the stool along with your normal black tank chemical. Take off for your next camping spot. The ice cubes with knock off and down the waste build up and slowly melt the ice cubes....when you arrive at the next campground, dump, flush and add water/chemical again....much fresher smelling once again.

RE: San Antonio RV Parks

KOA on Gembler RD is close to downtown and a nice place to stay

RE: No water flow when dry camping

I imagine you had your fresh water tank full of water and you kept the water pump on when dry camping.

RE: campground host?

We have been working campgrounds for 8 years....no two have been the same. Just as in any job, you sell yourself and gather all the duties involved. Mainly for state parks, registration, selling firewood and cleaning bathrooms is the major duties.....we don't clean bathrooms. So in going to a large state park like Custer SP, South Dakota, they had a cleaning crew, no bathrooms were required, only stopping by to see if everything was ok. Private campgrounds prove to be the best way to go.....if you want more info, send me a private message.

RE: Bear Spray

Regular pepper spray will not stop a bear...bear spray attacks the breathing, restricting the airway...stops them immediatly...bad part is, it's not a spray but a fog....you have to be 10-15 feet away. Also be upwind so it doesn't come back on you. A person in our campground was hiking in the Tetons...a grizzly charged and he grabbed his sprsy and waited until it was almost at him..the spray stopped him right away giving him a chance to run. Because it restricts the airway, it can kill a human but do you carry a gun in your RV or bear spray? Bear spray will stop a attack, maybe just stop without killing....a .357 will stop and kill....more problems....I don't think the court has ruled if bear spray is justified but I'd rather spray than be carried off on a stretcher

RE: Bear Spray

I keep mine just inside the door of the RV....you can carry it into Canada and any campground...if it can stop a 1000 lb bear, it can drop a person high on meth just as fast without killing them....10 times stronger than mace

RE: Thoughts Experiences with KOA Workamper Program

We paid the yearly dues to be members of KOA & Workamper. In the end, we always did better contacting a campground direct and not waiting for them to advertise for help. Start your searches in Sept for next summers positions. Many campgrounds know by Sept who is returning and who isn't. Choose a location you would like to be in and locate all the campgrounds in that area....send a quick note "Do you have a need for workampers next season, May to Sept." Make it short and simple. Include a small picture of yourself along with email address and phone number. Many want to know right away what someone looks like before getting into a resume & compensation packages. Never be afraid to set limits..."We do not want a housekeeping position" also ask for perks...laundry, propane, completion bonus and paid for all hours worked.
