RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

If you Google auxiliary battery ford e450, you will get some good hits and youtube videos. Here is one example. Scroll down to the E450 listing. http://www.torklift.com/index.php/products/auxiliary-battery-storage/hiddenpower Another one, several possible solutions here

RE: Newbie- we bought a lemon! Delamination issues

Having been through repair of rotted wood and leaks, my opinion is this.... Look up Rot Doctor product, and use it where possible to avoid tearing out wood. Ignore or minimize the delamination repairs. Seal the leaks. Do good research on same. What I'm trying to say is, do as little as possible while stopping the leaks and rot. No less, no more.

RE: How likely to get last-minute spots in national parks

Here are my experiences this summer. Executive summary is, if the night before, you do dispersed camping on a forest road, then get into the park first thing in the morning, and find a walk up campsite. NPs without reservations

RE: Switching to 4-flat towing

If it s 4x4, which you suggested, I am pretty sure it CANNOT be towed on a dolly.

RE: Forest River Forester open shelf?

Is there a lower lip on the opening? If so, that will probably do it. If not, an easy way would be an expanding spring loaded curtain rod. Just put it across the bottom of the opening. Or better yet, behind the opening, if there are lips on the sides.

RE: Southwest Michigan to Joliet, Illinois

No good way around it. We drive it quite a bit, but haven't in the past two months. I just put in New Buffalo to Joliet in Google Maps with traffic, and it says 86 miles, 1 hr 36 minutes. So that is not bad at all. Maybe sitting in traffic for what, 10-15 minutes. Not fun, but you can see why you can't be taking stoplight infested state routes and expect to do any better. If you were going a bit farther south than Joliet, then maybe. But in my experience, not even then. It's more for peace and tranquility than time savings. To Joliet, no way, just take the interstate.

RE: Black/Grey tank by-pass

You can't do it on the black tank. All the solids will hit the empty tank bottom and pile up.

RE: Forest River Forester open shelf?

Yeah, it's where your dish receiver goes, if you use one.

RE: Toad or No Toad

If you search the C forum only, for toad, you'll find several threads on this question.

RE: Run on East/West RV Park AZ

There are not many RV spots at the East. Quite a few at the West. We spoke to some residents there, who said the airplane noise is not bad. The worst is when the military training missions take off or land, which we were told is not every day and they tend to be clustered for a few minutes in the morning and afternoon. I welcome first hand corrections to the above, though. :)

RE: Price thoughts on this fiver

Yeah, the more I search the more I see higher end 10 y.o. in the twenties.

Thanks for all the info, folks!

RE: Price thoughts on this fiver

Our plan is no towing. Pay somebody if when. Drive the car to Arizona. We'd rather buy a park model, but have not settled on a park. But I do think $30K for 12 years old is hard to digest. But they are over 100 new, so...

Price thoughts on this fiver

We are considering buying a fiver to be left in AZ at a park, for snowbirding. This DRV is a 2006 so condition is more important than whatever a book price says. I have no idea about the value of an 11-12 y.o. luxury fiver. What is your opinion? Thanks. https://tucson.craigslist.org/rvs/6161840539.html

RE: With Record Rv Sales 2 years in a row, we'll need more sites

DW and I have seen the same trend. They are building more hotels, though. A car trip starts to look better and better.

RE: No RV and I'm going crazy

I never want to appear brand biased, because I am not. Here on the forums, there have been many complaints about Ford loudness, apparently due to the nature of the motor package, sometimes the sound deadening, and maybe mostly due to the shift programming of the five speed trans, which is now superceded by a six speed. From the stories, I get the impression that the five speed Fords just roar in the mountains. And they skip fourth gear on the downshift? It's not quite fair to compare my Chevy to them because we have a light RV, something like 11K wet. But it's all I have to compare with. I mentioned it was quiet in the mountains. Power and sound wise, climbing passes is just very relaxed. I go up the high passes typically in third gear, 40-45 MPH, running in the 3000's. It could climb a lot faster, but it still handles like a Class C, so I'm not going to do that on tight mountain roads. On straighter grades back east, I can keep up with typical cars and pickups without strain. I am super impressed with the Chevy 6.0 powertrain. It has vastly exceeded my hopes. But again, at 11K lbs, it's not a good comparison to a Class A at 18-20K or more. As far as house noises, we always hunt them down and (mostly) kill them. Ours is pretty quiet on that front.

RE: No RV and I'm going crazy

Our Chevy chassis Sunseeker is very quiet. Especially sixth and fifth gears. But also when driven up and down mountains in fourth or third. In those, normally the rpm is under 4000.

RE: High Volume Picture Hosting - Transfer From PhotoBucket

I might ask one more question. If I'm going to need to pay a fee, is there a preferred "writing" blog site people could start recommending? I've thought of going somewhere for that anyway. My blogs aren't just Open Roads, they are in a couple old Jeep forums too, several in Open Roads, and I wouldn't mind beginning to write on a range of topics which don't fit into an RV or Jeep forum. Maybe there is a low fee, easy pay method for a writer's blog site which gives more freedom of subject and stores the photos right there at the same place? Anybody? If I understand your question correctly, look at Wordpress.com. You can have a free blog there. There is almost no limit to what you can do on Wordpress. Some big websites run there. But you can also do a basic blog. There are many free formats to choose from, and they allow photo hosting. There may be a bandwidth limit, I don't know.

RE: Portable (suitcase) solar "install" question

My home made suitcase is 2 x 50 watts. It takes up roughly 2'x2'x4" of storage. I carry it all the time, in the bottom of the big rear compartment. In shady sites, the 300w on the roof is not much good.
