RE: First camping trip: Success!!

Sounds like you made some great trip memories. A small amount of greast on the contact points, or silicone, eliminates most of the WD noise asuming it is not over tightened. Take lots of pictures. They have a way of turning into gold with time.. Probley just dust on the heater. Is it better now? If not perhaps some compressed air shot through the intake. Best to ask your dealer

RE: Locked inside by entry assist handle

Someone could as easily slip a stick through our conventional handles thus locking us in. Guess you would just make a sandwich, plug in a movie and wait for a neighbor to walk past . Or go out the emergency exit

RE: one burner stove?

That is new to me as well. We do have one burner that puts out more BTU than the rest but all three are adjustable as they sould be

RE: are hybrid trailers cold in winter?

We camp ten months a year and do at times in the snow. Cokdest I recall might have been last year at 11 degrees and wind. Ran the electric heater non stop and dehumidifier as well. No one was cold. Yes bunk covers. No matress extras. Our bunk ends are pretty draft proof with bungees holding sides tight so no drafts. That's our experience after `10 years of hybrid

RE: Hybrid at or under 3500 lbs

We have same 3,500 capacity. Our HTT listed below loaded with twin batteries, food, cloths, basically ready to camp tipped the truck scale at 3,490. I know for sure we gained some weight over the years. Our Kia handles the load really well. Head winds slow us more than hills ever do and even that is minimal. Our gas mileage is cut in half whentowing. Hope this helps.

RE: Huge Thumbs-Up to Champion Generator Warranty Support!!

After camping a considerable distance from folks with a big champion all I can say is Wow! sure was loud. Are they getting quieter? Can they compete noise wise with the red and blue?

RE: How much will my stuff shift when pulling a TT?

Lots of variables here. Learn as you go. When DW is driving the trailer can look like a tossed salad on arrival.

RE: Can RV anti freeze be re-used?

Great idea until I thought about it. If you put the product in your lines to prevent water from freezing it will come out diluted. If you have no water in your lines why use it? I say why risk it.

RE: ? about what wax to use on fiberglass top

Never heard of Woody's boat wax. Perhaps I will givt it a go. Every year I try a different brand of wax. Thus far my best results are from Mcguire's California Gold. It is a carnuba wax and a bit of elbow sweat to get off the first coat but holds up a full year and just gets better with each coat. Seems everyone has their favorite. Best of luck

RE: Tent Camping Tips and Tricks

One tip I learned with numerous kids is to bring along a old piece of carpet to wipe feet and throw away at the end. Encourage minimizing trips into the tent. A full length rain fly staked properly is essential here in Oregon as it plenty of ventilation to minimize condensation.

RE: what needed fot generator

Honda or Yamahc come to mind as my first two choices. Please for the sake of your neighbors go with the quietest option. Just yesterday I had to listen to some guy running his commercial unit for hours. Sheeesh. No concern for others what so ever

So can the above units pretty much turn on and see my location on a man? or ?BTW Thanks for your help.
Oasisbob 10/07/14 05:15pm Family Camping

There are so many hald held GPS units on the market. I am not really a tech person. Can anyone help me find a hand held unit that will show trail maps and where I am at any given time? I have a non map bushnell which is simple to use but only shows direction and is not all that trust worthy depending on satelite connection. Something with built in trail mapping for Oregon would be great if not too complicated. Thanks

RE: Who still has vacation plans?

We are Oregonians and camp well into November and take up again January or Feb. Honestly some of our most fun is after Labor day as the crowds thin our and a different kind of camper remains. Sometimes cold, sometimes rain, once in a while snow. Always a great time. To answer your question yes, goin out next weekend.

RE: Harbor Freight Generator

I would pass. Out of concern for anyone around you. I suggest a Honda EU 1000 used. Quiet and reliable. Your neighbors will thank you.

RE: Battery Life and Low Temps

I did not see you mention age of batteries. If you did forgive please. My guess they were not fully charged when you switched off generator. I can go three days with furnace using my twin group 27 deep cycles. I charge with a high amp charger through my generaator not relying on my power converter. Have your batteries load tested. If fully charged temps are a minor factor. We have camped in 15 degree temps for days

RE: "Where do you go camping? What do you do?"

I am thankful not every one likes to camp. We go to state parks, Forest service and boon dock. What we do depends on our destination. We may fish, kayak, hike, bicycle or swim. We always have fun and make great memories.

RE: Generator or not??

No mistake on your part. Sounds like you don't need a generator based on your camping preferences. We can camp 3 nights and still watch an evening movie using our twin group 27 deep cycles. We do carry a Honda EU 1000 for a quick charge after the third night. Gest of luck. BTW We put fuel stabalizer in always and Honda has never let us down.

RE: Fall Kids Activities

We camp alot this time of year as the crowds are thinning. Down side of thinning crowds is programs do the same. So we have learned to bring along our own fun. Some examples are rain poncho's for hikes, kites, crafts and lettin the kids plan and cook their meals including clean up. Take the bikes, board games. Just have fun.
