RE: Help with keeping Refrigerator running

Don't overlook the option of just using the refrigerator as an icebox. Buy ice or get a bunch of refreezable blue ice blocks and refreeze half of them in the hotel refrigerator while the other half keep your RV refrigerator cold overnight. No more worries about propane or batteries or keeping the unit level.

RE: Thinking about converting and ambulance to an RV

I've seen several of these on YouTube, so you are apparently not the only one who thinks they make good RV's. Search around there and you'll see details on their conversions.

RE: Ankle/Foot Fusion

X2 on the knee scooter. Totally a life and sanity saver. I had to spend 4 months in a non-weight-bearing cast with a broken ankle 3 years ago. The young doctor said to use crutches and hop on my good foot. No could do - that foot had plantar fasciitis. NWB is not easy. My HMO sent a physical therapist to my home to teach me how to live with one foot. Best service they ever provided! Get this if you can. Best wishes for healing as quickly as possible.

RE: Southern California - First trip New Fifth Wheel

Yes, lots to learn. It sounds like your first trip needs to emphasize Being There rather than Getting There. So, short trip to a nice place.

RE: Southern California - First trip New Fifth Wheel

Do you want desert? forest? a resort where you go there and do everything there? a place for a base to explore from? Prado Regional Park is pretty. I live near it. Not sure I recommend it, because it is noisy there - traffic noise, construction noise, and two nearby shooting ranges. Maybe Rancho Jurupa Park would suit you.

RE: Help needed San Diego area

Contact the Smog Referee. Years ago when no one would test my pre-Tiger 1983 RV (too tall for the bays, too lightweight for the rollers they had outside), these guys really came through for me. I used the station at Southwestern College (Chula Vista); there is also a station at Miramar College. "Assistance to Consumers when Smog Check Stations Refuse to Test Vehicles. Consumers may call the Referee Call Center to make an appointment if a station will not perform a Smog Check inspection on their vehicle. To reach the Referee Call Center, call (800) 622-7733.

RE: Question for Winnebago Class B Owners

Will they run an air conditioner? Not sure. I do not have a B. Take a look at the owner's manual for the model you are considering or e-mail the factory. I would not trust a salesperson to answer this question.

RE: Question for Winnebago Class B Owners

I think that the underhood generators used in some B's (Winnebago, Roadtrek, etc.) are really second alternators. They do not have to be exercised and having one frees up space for storage. Advertising touts them as quiet, so they can supposedly be used at any time without violating the no-generator hours at camps.

RE: Solar Powered Generators

Further thoughts on this issue: I was researching the lighter-weight lithium versions to replace my current heavy backup portable power unit. For home, this unit helps out during power failures. For travel, it is backup power for the CPAP and a jump starter for the truck if needed; I usually travel alone exploring the back country and it would be rather stupid to go without backup power. Yes, solar "generators" are pricey. However, the lithium Kodiak at 20 pounds has WAY more power than my current lead-acid Duracell unit. My aging back does not like me to haul heavier stuff around and the weight factor is attractive. So is the plug-and-play. The Inergy Kodiak recharges quickly with AC or 12V from a vehicle or from solar. I would probably never use solar with it. One YouTube review of the Kodiak shows an RV plugged into its 30amp socket and the reviewer using equipment within the RV with the Kodiak as the power source. Nice! Other brands don't seem to have that socket, but you might be able to use an adapter. I'm not saying I'll buy one, but it is good to know what options are out there.

RE: TR: 10 steps to get your friends hooked on TCing

What a great recipe for success. Pictures and memories to last a lifetime and having kids put value to the outdoors. X2 Thanks for the great TR, even though it makes me feel a bit homesick for my former stomping grounds.

RE: Solar Powered Generators

As stated above, these are not really generators. They are power storage and management systems, often called portable power stations. Past versions were more of the jump-start + compressor + AC and DC outlets and maybe a light. I've been investigating the new versions lately, reading reviews. Some of them are quite powerful and most are packaged nicely. Expedition Portal has reviewed a number of them. Info can be found in the pile of results from this search: https://expeditionportal.com/?s=portable+power&submit=

RE: Smaller RV's?

A regular cab Tiger Bengal may be the smallest C at a hair under 20 feet. Phoenix Cruiser has a small unit also. My pre-Tiger Toyota-based C was 17.5 feet. Perfect for one person who likes to explore or two people who enjoy a lot of togetherness. Otherwise, it sure seems like RV builders are on the bigger BIGGER track. I dread the day that I have to be shopping for my next RV.

RE: California registration of out of state RV

Should I assume that if you found the calculator you also found the entire DMV section on how to register an out-of-state vehicle? In that section, I found a brochure which has a section about vehicles which cannot be registered here. Does any of this apply? "Vehicles Purchased From Out of the Country (Grey Market) California has special requirements for vehicles imported from other countries (including Canada and Mexico). It may be very costly or impossible to modify these vehicles to meet California emission requirements and/or federal motor vehicle safety standards (FMVSS). No direct import vehicle less than two years old can be converted to California emission standards. Not all direct import vehicles over two years old can be converted to California emission standards and FMVSS. No motorcycle or diesel-powered vehicle can be converted to California emission standards. For details, contact the California Air Resources Board (ARB)."

from CalTrans on Twitter: "#MontecitoFlood Update: #Hwy101 thru Santa Barbara area will NOT reopen on Monday, Jan 15 and there is no estimate due to ongoing rescue/recovery & extensive clean-up/repairs. Continue using #Hwy5 to #Hwy46 or #Hwy166 back to #Hwy101 to/from central coast & So Cal, safe travels." You should see the photo that accompanied this announcement. It shows what looks like a backwoods swamp full of debris. Hwy 101 is under that mess somewhere. Twitter link

Watch out for the parks with two limits: X days for a single stay and Y cumulative days for a year.
