RE: Santa Barbara bans RVs w/o temporary permits

I like the dimensional rather than behavioral approach, even though my Tiger (a small C) does not qualify to park under the dimension policy. I've avoided Santa Barbara for years when driving the RV. Narrow non-grid streets, very congested with cars, bicycles, and pedestrians. Went there last week in my daily driver, a Honda Fit, and even that felt like it had to squeeze in to find parking.

RE: The perfect RV

I've had RV's in my life for over 60 years and I firmly believe that there is no perfect RV. You choose the one which is the best fit for you and you go out and enjoy it.

RE: Ford F-350 switches

This YouTube video doesn't jiggle the camera as much. The first one gave me a headache. This one also gives the webpage address for an official Ford wiring diagram. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K1ZAcR46_28

RE: tiny house

It's like the footwear situation: there are ordinary shoes, there are the latest trendy shoes, there are shoes that promise you something (athletic ability, protection, attractiveness), etc. You get choices.

RE: Beating the Heat in Idaho - Trip Report

Thanks for the great report and photos! Nice reminder that it is past time for me to go back to Idaho.

RE: Securing RV cabinet doors

If that doesn't work, try lots of blue painters tape as a temporary measure. Then perhaps a hook and eye on the big door? A old-fashioned bolt? Baby safety locks such as Zappy Baby (see Amazon; I've had good results with these)?

RE: Rancho Cucamonga, California

There are a couple of county parks fairly near that area. Both have hookups. Rancho Jurupa County Park: link Prado Regional Park: link I have not camped at either one. Have been to Prado several times because I live nearby; it looks like a pleasant place to stay, although there is road noise. Chino Hills State Park has a campground. I do not recommend it for a planned stay because the park is closed every time there is a red flag warning for fire weather. It seems to be closed about half the time these days.

RE: A long good bye :-(

Hang in there! It is not easy to find a small C these days. You stuck with the search and you got one. The good parts will get better. You'll figure out how to pack to minimize that noise (all the noise that was going on in the TC but you could not hear it). You will still be able to go to many TC sorts of places. You could even get the rig converted to 4WD maybe. The TC forum folks have been good to me for years, letting me be a sort of honorary member of this forum because my Class C is about the same size as a TC and I do trip reports geared to TC stuff.

RE: Summer camping in Idahome picture portfolio, and getting old

How can you bear to leave lovely, though not perfect, Idahome to go to Colorado even temporarily? Your penalty ought to be that you need to provide a Colorado TR next. There are never enough Whazoo TR's.

RE: remove "flushable" wipes from black tank?

I agree with 352's method, with the addition of sheathing your arm in a large plastic bag before putting it down the hole. You can turn the bag inside out as you remove your arm from the hole and then of course wash your entire hand and arm. Don't flush the bag. :-)

RE: Near Disaster Propane Refuel Experience

It is good that you turned off the batteries and refrigerator. Propane filler persons are supposed to ask about that, but I have found that most do not. Several years ago I saw a terrifying news video of a Tiger like mine fully engulfed in flames. Cause: outgassing after propane refill, batteries not off. Refrigerator igniter just doing its job.... The Tiger owners had gone into the gas station office to pay for the propane. They looked back and saw the fire. The Tiger was completely destroyed. Fortunately, no one was injured.

RE: rock put a hole in my new travel trailer..help

Get some kind of temporary patch on it for now, to prevent water damage or whatever. Gorilla tape is good; it even comes in white, black, or clear. That will give you time to research and consider a permanent solution. Good luck!

RE: Back on the road again soon - Putting the fire behind us

I am so glad to hear that things are turning out well for you folks and that you plan to be on the road again soon. My family survived a TT wreck (no fire) when I was a teenager and it was really hard to get us all willing to go on the road again. Happy travels to you in your new rig!

RE: Santa Margarita area

There's a KOA at/near the lake, also a San Luis Obispo County Park. The nearest other site I know of is Hi Mountain (Los Padres NF) camp. Much of the land in that area seems to be privately owned, making free boondocks difficult.

RE: Straying from your Boondocking Site

I never leave anything. If I return and the space is open, then it is my lucky day. Usually, I do not even try to return.

RE: CA Hwy 89 Monitor Pass

X2 on that. Just because you can doesn't mean that you should.

RE: MH or TC - Which is better to get into the Boonies?

My Tiger Class C MH, built on a Chevy 4x4 pickup chassis, is perfect for the boonies. It is 87 inches wide, just under 9.5 feet tall. You won't get much smaller than that unless you choose a popup TC. Larger MH's, even the 24 foot you mentioned, are taller and wider. Where I go, size usually is more important than having 4WD. I do use the high clearance often and the 4WD at least a bit on every trip.
