RE: Is it ok to travel with a full plastic gas can on my bumper?

It doesn't seem safe but what else would I do? I haven't used my genny enough yet to know when I will need gas. There is a Gas can set up that holds ten gallons, it mounts behind the spare tire hanger on the Jeep Wrangler, So it's not illegal. I would not carry one myself. I would stop and fill a gas can if I carried one before I got to my camp site.

RE: CPAP machine and batteries

Hey thanks for all the info you guys I know my batteries will hold it then, just maybe not use the humidifier , I assume you just do not fill or put the tank in to not use the humidifier. And again thanks for all the info this is a great forum love all the good info I have gleamed from it. I have humidifiers for my machines and do not use them. I was told that once I started using a humidifier I would never be able to stop.

RE: Boondocking closures in Arizona

Folks, awareness on this very important topic is good, but lets keep the political rants out of this thread or I'll have to close it. x2 The Land belongs to the citizens of the USA, If you want to do something about it contact your representative not Rant here.

RE: If You Had To Buy A Tablet ?

Not sure why the aversion to the Apple products. For my money, I'd be buying a used Apple at that price point rather than considering the other offerings.I would not use an Apple if you gave it to me. Everything on an Apple seems difficult,clumsy and backwards to me. It is just a Ford/Chevy thing. I have a iMac Desk Top Computer, I also have a HP Note Book Computer. They are both almost the same. On my iMac I use Safari, on my HP I use Firefox. On my HP it seems that everyday there is some kind of Emergency Security Update or Emergency OS software update. On my iMac very seldom is there any kind of Emergency Update. On my HP I run an Anti Virus Program. (Kaspersky) Every time I get an update on the HP the update always seems to have an Anti-Virus program that they want me to down load in the back ground, Norton or McAfee. When I was running Windows OS it seemed like I was always getting Maleware, on my iMac none, on my HP almost every week. I am going to get an Apple OS Tablet when I get one. After the first of the year I am going to do away with my HP Lap Top and go to a Mac. My wife and I use the Square for our business, we use Android based phones, we are going to get a iPad Table to use the Square on. Just my thoughts, hope you all have a great holiday season and safe travels.

RE: First RV trip/drive

I agree with the person who said to first try a trip with less elevation change. The coast is nice. Perhaps Morro Bay. The least traumatic route, though far from the shortest, to Anza-Borrego Desert State Park is probably: east via I-8 to Ocotillo, which has at least two lanes each way but sometimes high winds can affect high profile vehicles or even close the road. North on S-2 through the southern portions of the park. Or, adding many miles, North from El Centro on 86 and enter the park from the east side. Next choice: Go east via Ramona, turn north on 79 at Santa Ysabel. Turn right onto S-2, do not turn on the obvious S-22, go straight down the more gentle San Felipe Valley on S-2 to S-78. Turn left (east), proceed to Borrego Springs Road, go north (left) on that into the town. This route involves a lot of winding two-lane, but avoids the steepest grades and the big scary cliffs. There is no route which is totally without trauma. Perhaps scout first with a daytrip in the car if you are really worried about getting there. Watch out for folks in a big hurry to get to the off-road areas. I agree with what Tiger 4x4 RV Said, And I would say Morro Bay.

RE: Got Lucky This Time

Makes you stop and think. A couple of weeks ago we had to replace our Propane Detector, it was the original one inside the RV. The one that came with our RV. They suggest replacing them every 5 years. Go figure. Yes you did get lucky.

RE: Gasoline driven generator for RV

I have a recently purchased Class C RV. My question has to do with the auxiliary generator so I guess it applies to all classes of RV so equipped. The motor for the generator will not pump fuel from the RV gas tank. I suspect there is a leak in the line and it is just sucking air, or possibly its fuel pump is not strong enough to pump gas from the RV's fuel tank. When I disconnect from the RV's fuel tank and run a short line into a can of gas situated nearby it works fine. I hate the thought of having to drop the main fuel tank to inspect for a broken line or leak but will do so if I have to. Does the generator have its own fuel pump, and if so where would it be? Mounted on the generator motor like a conventional car fuel pump? What if I mounted an in-line fuel pump closer to the main fuel pump? Do you think that would do the trick? Any ideas/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. -Denver I am not sure where you are located, but there is a man in El Cajon CA, That does nothing but RV generators. PM me and i will send you his phone number.

RE: My Repower Adventure

Rich You do good work. You want to rebuild my 1995 460 cid. in my 95 F250. or should I just buy a new Ram 2500 HD Laramie Cummins TD? If I was a few years younger I would delight in bring another 460 back to life. But those 72 candles on my last birthday cake are taking its toll. I have the old 460 block out of the ol Bounder that still has many miles in it. I'll probably offer it on Craig's List when I get time. If you do some serious towing, then I can see an oil burner I your future. Richard It leaks more oil than it burns. Just like a Harley Davidson Marking it's Territory!

RE: Prices for Diesel Fuel vs Gasoline

At the gouge and rip-off stations(next to the interstate Hwy) Diesel is $1.00 to $1.80 a gallon lower in price than Regular Gasoline 87 octane. At the stations away from the Interstate almost a dollar lower in price. In San Diego County, less than 3 miles from the U.S. Mexican Border.

RE: Boondocking communities other than Q and Slabs?

Agree with others about Scadden Wash. It's remote enough yet close enough to the Big Tent Show and Shopping though I prefer Dome Rock and Roadrunner Wash more because they're a bit further away from the crowds. Mike Roadrunner is one of our favorite spots to go.

Super Dave That's cruel and inhumane treatment to post that picture. I wasn't hungry until I saw that picture. Looks great.
