RE: Exits in an emergency

Your point is well taken. If you were to design a structure to burn it would look like an RV. They burn quick & hot once they get going. Aside from an LP leak & explosion, however, there is usually time to get out being warned by the smoke detector. What other safety devices would you consider?

Olive oil?

My kids & I love camp cooking but recently have noticed many folks like to use "extra extra virgin olive oil" We saw some in the store and it's kinda pricey. What is it and is there a noticable difference? Thanks in advance.

RE: Helping others

I am always happy to help others. I have been given so much help along the way.

RE: External Propane Tanks and Cylinders

When I was full timing in my fiver I leased a fifty gallon from a propane company that came by every other week. Never came close to running low. You will learn your consumption rate in a month or so and it will all make sense. Even if I drained one twenty pounder I would simply go out and switch over from the one to another.

RE: motorhome replacement

Your rig is barely broke in. You know it and how it has been cared for. I do not see how you could be money ahead buying a new unit.Even if something major was to go wrong you would still be money ahead to keep it. Just my opinion. Happy Trails

RE: help on tow weights

I think your estimated cargo weight is high. With full LP tanks, full water tank twin batteries and everything else we need for camping we added less than 600 pounds to our HTT. Either should tow well for you regardless. Best of luck

RE: Coleman lantern -- white gas?

I love my Coleman North Star white gas lantern. I think I paid ten bucks for my last gallon and expect it will last me a few years. Not a bad deal really . I believe it is cheaper than propane. But really I just enjoy the lantern and how it works.

RE: Wax

Every winter I wax my HTT with a different brand of wax. My fav is Mothers California Gold. Does everything it claims though requires a bit more elbow grease than most. I find waxing the rig is a great way to extinguish any thought of buying a bigger rig. Atleast two coats. Wax on Wax off. Don't forget to breath.

RE: Anyone else ever say, "I'm never buying another RV?

My last trailer was a 1958 Oasis. Tough as nails built by folks that took pride in their craft. My regrets, even after 13 years, is selling it. What I have now has treated me fairly well. When I ponder buying a new TT I recall all the problems folks have with new rigs and shy away.

RE: Generator Help

If you want to run AC & micro wave you will need over 2000 watts. We have out trusty Honda Eu 1000 which we use, along with a 50 amp charger, to charge out twin group 27 betteries every third day or so. Charge takes around 4-5 hours. For the sake of yourself and those around you do not skimp on quality. Go Honda or Yamaha as they are super quiet and not too offensive to those seeking quiet. Best of luck

RE: Kayak on Trailer Roof Question

Might just work. I ratchet strap my three to my THULE van top rack. They never move. I see two possible problems. 1. Strap flutter on sides could take off paint. Cushion with swim noodles from dollar store. 2. Tension will be one sided on your roof. They could shift to the middle and loosen. Mine catch no air. However, if one comes loose it could be lethal for whoever it hits. Do you have room inside or a pass through storage?

RE: honda genny theft deterrent apparatus

I always put a bicycle U lock through the handle & my bumper. Never heard of anyone cutting the handle. Seems like a noticable task. I will keep my U lock and insurance policy. Guess if they want it they will get it.

RE: New 5th Wheeler for my Eco Boost

How far you going? The lower bracketry apears strong. Have no idea about upper. Personally I would remove them. 45 minutes well spent. Imagine one falling onto the windshield of a passing car.

RE: Dutch Oven Cooking, Camping and Outdoors Cooking

Thanks for the link. I recently saw a video our family made about Dutch Oven Cooking and our first attempt. Wow what a sad meal that was. We have learned a great deal through many helpful folks.

RE: Why do we carry a spare tire around?

I get what you are saying but with so many different wheel & tire sizes it really makes sense to carry a spare. I would help anyone I saw who had a flat if they had the equipment. It still makes sense to me to carry a spare and equipment for a change. Rare as it is a repair person can take a long long time to come.

RE: First travel trailer, what should I buy?

Looking can be half the fun. You are right. Not much quality out there. Airstream is one of the few quality units IMHO. I like the look and quality of the CAMP LITE trailers. Whatever you buy used pay to have it gone through by a qualified shop with no ties to seller. Money well spent. This should happen prior to money changing hands. Best of luck

RE: Attaching small shelf to the wall

I asked similar question a year or so back. Best advice was to use expanding screw inserts of apropriate length. I measured my wall thickness carefully and taped off my drill bit so as not to go to far. Worked well as I now have a long shelf with food supplies. Best of luck. I like the piano hinge idea also.
