RE: Camping on the beach in southern CA

link Area is called Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area. Pismo. Reserveamerica right now shows tomorrow and Tuesday as walkup because you must reserve at least two days ahead. The rest of the week shows 900+ sites available each day until you get to the weekend when it shows 1. Confusing or else they really get a LOT of weekend folks. If you go (I have done it), watch tides very carefully, take $$$$ for a tow if needed, and hit a carwash on the way out to wash your rig top to bottom including underneath.

RE: Class B Purchase Advice

Go to Roadtrek.com. Look under Locators, click the Rental tab, search places within 250 miles of Los Angeles. I found 5 locations which rent Roadtreks.

RE: Low volume Class C manufacturers

Wow! Only 9? The Lazy Daze factory is just a few miles from my home. They have been in business forever, make a fine product. This makes me want to run right up there and order one to get their numbers up!

RE: Why I need to get away in my TC - ASAP! for fun

I am now retired after over 50 years of working in college libraries. For the first 20 years I did support staff work at various levels, then for 30 years (after grad school) I was a reference librarian and instructor. Librarians get what comes to us. We have to treat each patron with respect and to be nice. But... The idiots. The demanding do-it-for-me and do-it-now folks. The ones who argue with the references we locate. Fortunately there were enough nice and reasonable patrons to keep me coming back. And fellow library workers to vent to in the break room. The RV was parked at home and weekends to wide-open places were my escape. No phones, no patrons, no e-mails. Yay!

My family, and on another account my former workplace, have used Dropbox free version for years without any problems.

RE: We're looking at "C"s and have Questions.

There is no perfect RV. We folks over 70 don't have forever to make RV buying decisions. Can you find a floorplan similar to what you are used to and just go for it?

RE: My campsite map now has almost 580 sites!

Thank you for all the work you put into your website and your map. I like those same sorts of campsites and really appreciate the new ideas you have provided.

RE: CPAP machine and batteries

Don't feel sorry for us CPAP users. Our condition can be controlled by a machine. Non-sleeping life goes on as before, or probably better because we get better rest. To be able to get out there, drive, camp, hike, whatever we all do and whatever medical issues we live with - - we should be grateful every day to be able to keep on doing it! I am 70 years old, have been RV camping for over 60 of those years, and hope to continue for quite a few more years to come.

RE: CPAP machine and batteries

I don't use the humidifier even at home. Never could tell the difference and much less chance of a yeast or mold infection!! For those of us who need the humidifier, a reminder: drain and dry it every day. The mask needs to be disassembled, cleaned, and dried daily. The hose should be rinsed daily. I do a more thorough cleaning with soapy water, rinse, and dry once a week. Include the machine's filter and the headgear. Nobody every mentions these aspects of CPAP camping. The camper can get to looking like a CPAP laundry room! Also, if you use a humidifier you need to make room to carry along a jug of distilled water.

RE: CPAP machine and batteries

As to having enough power: My batteries (220 AHrs, 2 6V AGM's) charge only from the truck engine. No solar, no generator, no hookups 99 percent of the time. Humidity is usually quite low where I camp, so I run the CPAP humidifier most of the time. My unit does not have a heated hose. You can fill the tank and turn the humidifier heater off so the air just blows over the water if you are seriously short of battery power. Several times in SoCal winters with nights long and in the high 30's, I have gone 4 nights in a row without starting the truck and have not run the batteries down to below 60 percent. I rarely use the furnace. I minimize use of the water pump. No television. Reading lights are all LED. My priority for electricity is to dedicate it to the CPAP. I have also taken several 10-day dry camp trips in the desert, moving every couple of days to charge the batteries. No problems. I recently started taking a jump-start unit along for backup power if needed. Sometimes if I am worried about power, I just go for a drive. I hope this helps. You may come to view your CPAP machine as another camping partner who needs to be fed and kept comfortable.

RE: RV Upgrades for long term boondocking.

When you "post more later," don't forget to tell us how you solved the problem of being way overweight with carrying all that water. :-)

RE: CPAP machine and batteries

If your CPAP machine has a unit-specific 12V cord available (CPAP.com is a great source of info on this), and if your TC has a 12V socket near the bed, you'll be fine. This is assuming that the batteries charge while you drive. The factory webpage for your TC says it has 12V outlets, but does not say where they are. Another option, which I used early in my CPAP days, is a small plug-in inverter and then run the CPAP from that. My little inverter is a Duracell 150W. If you do not have your CPAP yet, ask your provider for one that will run on 12V.

RE: Nevada?

All of the above, plus: Take 93 north from I-15 to Ely. I especially liked Cathedral Gorge SP and Ward Charcoal Ovens along this route.

RE: Grapevine/Tehachapi

X2 on the stay home (or where you are now) idea. At least until this storm is over.

RE: El Capitan State Beach, California

The Reserve America site for ECSB lists equiment length for each space: link That site says, for family camping (not group camps): "Campers may stay in the same park up to 30 nights in a calendar year. " This does not make it clear whether or not the 30 days can be continuous. Sometimes parks will say X day max stay, and Y amount total per year. Official CA State Park website has a max length list for all parks: http://www.parks.ca.gov/rvlength

RE: RV Camping near the Sonny Bono Salton Sea NWR

Salt Creek, part of the Salton Sea State Rec Area, is a primitive camp great for birds and for colorful sunsets. It is on the east side of the sea. Further north, headquarters camp has hookups. The sea is not what it was, but it is certainly not dried up. I camped there just before Christmas.

RE: Co2 fill in Corona CA

Yelp lists several, with reviews, in the Corona area. Go to Yelp home page. Under "find", put "Co2 refill". Under "near", put "Corona, CA".

RE: non vented furnace

The non-ducted (but safely vented) furnace in my 20-foot no-slide C warms the place up in a few minutes. I am glad it is there, although I rarely use it because it is noisy and because I am a boondocker wanting to conserve on use of electricity and propane.
