RE: Newbie, looking at 28-30' rigs

I love mine and travel alone for the most part. I like the extra room. Plenty of sleep areas, privacy and a good sized bathroom. No issues getting to necessary facilities while on the road.

RE: What did you find you did not need?

I have things like a 25ft 30A extension cord, needed it once before I bought it, have NEVER needed it since I bought it, not getting rid of it though. I'm of the mind set, that I won't need some of the things that I carry..... till I don't have them. :( A big x2! Since we have more than ample storage, I am taking the Boy Scout approach. Sure, I'll lose 0.1 mpg hauling the stuff around but it'll be there when I need it. By the way, you WILL need that 30A extension again some day. Indeed. I travel alone so the MH weight issue is not so prominent always. I suspect I am of the rainy day mindset when it comes to food, supplies and contingencies. Like the 14x14 EZ Up. Always take it. Never look at the 10 day weather forecast. Yep. Takes some room and is not light. The extra 30 amp extension cord? One trip a year with a shared pedestal but what if I did not know that? Blender, toaster, crock pot, electric griddle and fry pan, just in case. LOL! Perhaps my approach is no longer Boy Scout but it may lean toward the Zombie Apocalypse. :B

RE: Toad left in park

I loved all the witty and informed reparte here. Lists are great but getting distracted in the middle of the checking of/off the list does not help either. I cannot imagine anyone driving 200 miles with a blown tire and not noticing the ramifications. Heck, I forget to latch a small cargo door and I have several people honking and waving at me in less than a minute.

RE: Backing up with toad

I have done it a few times, no more than a few feet and in a straight line. Once I was caught up with no turning radius in front of me at a gas pump island and had to adjust back and forth a couple of times but slow and carefully. I travel alone and hope to never to get 'stuck' but know that I will!

RE: Ka-runch!!!

Caught mine on a concrete median on the CBE in NYC 2 years back. Between trying to keep the mirrors from getting smacked in the dungeon like darkness and wondering where your genny pipe is can be stressful. Fortunately only the mount had to be replaced. There are times while parked on a tight residential street I worry about folks not seeing the pipe. When at home I always throw two traffic cones out, just because.

RE: Exercising Generator

Monthly for two hours with either the A/C or electric heater on going on 4 years without issue. My portable gennys the same while hooked up to the RV.

RE: How do you all secure your carry out sat antennas

Depending upon the CG and/or distance I may throw a light chain on it. I also bought a cable $29 that alerts when the cable is disconnected from the satellite cube. Of course if I am not inside the RV when that happens it does no good but in the middle of the night it would be a rude awakening. But as others would note, it is rare to see someone walking through a CG with a cube or tripod in a manner that is truly suspicious.

RE: Honda CR-V Toad

As others have stated, you really don't notice it behind you.

RE: Cell phone booster

I have the AC/DC Wilson 4G booster but with the small antenna and enjoy the ability to go from one bar to four bars in nominal signal areas.

RE: CRV 2WD or AWD does it matter?

I lucked out buying my CR-V. It was a standard shift and AWD. A rare option. I love driving it and it tows great.

RE: Balking Brake Buddy

Had mine do that this summer. It's not he Brake Buddy. It's the lack of power getting to it. Starting the car got it to set. X2.... Just had the same thing happen to me for the first time over NYE. I did not start/run my toad for 5 days in very cold temps and when I hooked up to leave, the BB would not set-up. I only had to start the toad for a few minutes to get the BB to set-up with no further issues.

RE: explain to me

As a 'boomer' with a full time job I get out more than most. I also have enjoyed certain routines with friends, CGs and time frames. I've had my MH 4 years and 11,000 miles. Unfortunately (or a blessing), my favorite monthly CG adventure is only 50 miles away. I am retiring in May and expect my mileage will increase exponentially even though I do not expect a cross country excursion for some time. My mileage totals were about the same with my ROO. The running joke at work has been, I work at camping. I would agree that too many folks buy a RV and seldom get out more than a month a year.

RE: Forest River

A couple of minor issues but nothing to get all whacked about. I really love my Sunseeker especially when all is in good order.

RE: Do you exercise your generator in the winter?

Yep. And the 3500W and 9000W as well. It is a long and loud 6 hours every month but they always work well when needed.

RE: Class C bunkhouse w/ outdoor kitchen?

I like the concept and have enjoyed sharing good times with friends who have them in TT. Since I have the same general Class C layout, I would really hate to lose the bedroom wardrobe on the curbside wall. That kitchen looks deep even if only half way up.

RE: can i keep my gas tank filled all winter

Both my sons run Sea Foam in their high performance cars. I had never heard of it before and although pricey, I bought some for my vehicles and shed equipment. I run my RV genny once a month so I am not as concerned about fuel sitting but adding a stabilizer can't hurt.

RE: Anyone have damage from blow-only winterizing?

I stopped using anti-freeze back in 2008 when I had still had my ROO. I usually also camped over Thanksgiving, NYE and in February so true winterizing was not practical. Since I bought the MH I am out during winter months. Once again, no anti-freeze used. I drain the lines as best I can and have not blown them out in four years. I do use low temp switched heaters in the basement and living area and to date have never had an issue to include the outside shower faucet. I guess one could suggest that is living dangerously but so far so good. And yes, I can hear Dirty Harry in the background!

RE: Opinion on winterability of my rig

A variety of experiences and options offered. Having camped several winter seasons in my ROO, adaptabilty was Job #1. I have continued winter camping in the MH, admittedly only locally but Mid-Atlantic winters can be brutal too, just not as bad as our Northern and Mid-West neighbors. It is and has been a work in progress. Although I have ducted heat and a heated underbelly I rarely use propane heat. I do maintain a small space heater on a 38 degree thermostat in the black/gray tank and water pump area which keeps things 'warmer'. I have wrestled with emptying both tanks overnight and as observed by someone, the more thermal mass the lessor chance of freezing. But dumping each night is no big deal. I often do not detach the fresh water hose as well since it is heated but there really is no reason to keep it attached unless a steady stream of fresh water is absolutely necessary. That is why we have fresh water tanks. I have not insulated much underneath but do have reflectix inserts on every window and vent in the living area as well as plexiglass panels on the screen door. I use an oil filled radiator and one ceramic heater in the living area to balance direct/indirect heat. The coldest I have experienced for an overnight was a low of 25 degrees outside and it was a struggle to keep it toasty inside. I have had several days running where getting to a 40 degree high was a stretch. Of course that is when I scratch my head and ask myself "why"? A warm sweater, blanket, good DVDs and a bottle of Fireball help too!
