RE: solar smartphone charger

My kids gave me a PowerMonkey Extreme last Christmas. Lithium battery pack, rechargable from AC or DC or the included very small solar panel. Designed for backpacking. It holds quite a bit of juice and comes with connectors for all sorts of gear or use the cord which came with the item you want to charge.

RE: Lookout Mt. Incline railway

Chatanooga, TN? I found the web pages. If you are arriving with someone, perhaps have them drop you at the entrance to save you some walking. There are disabled parking spaces both at top and bottom incline stations, but my experience (not in TN) is that those are always full. Once you are on the incline car, you'll be fine. Ruby Falls has a 4/5 mile walking tour, no wheelchair access, some stairs. Good luck, and enjoy your trip as much as you can!

RE: 2016 Subaru Forester dingy

from the Subaru.com factory site, customer support pages: "Please follow the recommendations outlined in the Owner's Manual if there is a need to tow a Subaru vehicle. The best way to transport your vehicle is a flatbed tow truck with ALL wheels off the ground. Always follow the precautions and recommendations outlined in the Owner's Manual if flat towing with all wheels on the ground is unavoidable in an emergency situation."

RE: TR: east Arizona mountains, valleys, rivers, etc ---

Good inspiration for us back roads folks. Thanks! Sometimes trip themes seem to develop spontaneously. I remember taking trips to the Black River, Red River, Blue River. And then there was my "things in a row" trip - ducks, farm sheds, orchards, etc.

RE: Class B RV Newbie

This post belongs in the Class B forum. that said...As a long-time solo RV'er, I often meet folks with RV fantasies. For those such as you, I sometimes recommend that they make a cardboard mockup of the unit they are considering (set it up in your living room?) and "live" in that for a week or two with your dogs. You can go outside, as you might with a real RV. You can go to the store. But you must really live in that confined space and see what it feels like. More expensive alternative is to rent a similar RV for a while. Or maybe set up the smallest bathroom in your home to be your mock RV and stay in there for a few days. Will all of your daily stuff fit in there? What if you need item X? Where do you keep that? Where will the dogs' food bowls be? Where will you all sleep? The RV lifestyle can be whatever you want - resorts or remote deserts or in between. You cannot realistically park it anywhere you want and live there. Some places are legal and free, but have time limits. Some places allow no camping at all. There is a whole underground world of "stealth camping" folks, which you can sometimes tap into on the internet. A shiny new expensive RV is not particularly stealthy. Those are just a few thoughts to help you along your way. Fine tune that dream and then do it!

RE: Trakker Class C...?

My best guess is it's older, European. Googling around and looking at image files, I did not yet find an exact match. Iveco makes a Trakker truck chassis. Iveco is also often used as a non-USA RV chassis, and checking that led me to some interesting stuff. I like this South African one: http://www.motorhome-world.com/ I like their model distinctions: those that drive around the mountain and those that drive to the top of the mountain.

RE: Propane...

When we had a huge propane tank for the house, we would go out and throw a bucket of hot water over it, then run hands down the side of the tank. The empty top part of the tank was warm, the part with the liquid propane in it was cold. Primitive, but it worked.

RE: class c with four 3 point seat belt seats

A Tiger built on a crew cab or extended cab chassis might meet your criteria. Used Tigers are very scarce. http://tigerowners.freeforums.org/ sometimes has listings of Tigers for sale.

RE: Tuolumne Meadows Campground, Yosomite experience?

There is a dump station near Tuolumne Meadows, available only in summer. https://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/rvcamping.htm I saw some Class A's at that campground, tucked very tightly between trees. Don't know how they did it. I've camped there without reservations, usually in last week before the camp closes in September. Beautiful place. A very different Yosemite from what you see in the valley.

RE: Budgeting for Camping

Don't forget that your budget needs to include any of the following which are applicable to your situation: storage fees for the TT, insurance for the TT, and TT vehicle license fees. These will be charged whether you just park the TT or go out often and use it. As to your question of what to look for in a TT for small children: safe sleeping space (bunk rails?), safe stairs and ladders. I've camped extensively with children from my own 6-week-old infants to my currently adult grandchildren. At least until kids approach the adult stage, plan on extra parental vigilance. There are so many wonderful unfamiliar things and places that they will want to investigate. No leaving them alone in the TT for even a short time. No "I thought you were watching them" situations. Watch out for camp area traffic, wild animals, uncontrolled tame animals, etc. Have a great camping life! You'll be building many memories with your children. Don't wait too long to get started on this.

RE: Trip Report: Searching for sand along the Lost Coast

Great TR! I did once stay at the BLM camp at the mouth of the Mattole River. It was so windy there that I thought about staking the Tiger down. But great beachcombing and well worth the awful road to get there.

RE: Mosquito Control

I have had great results from Sawyer's Permethrin Premium Clothing Insect Repellent. It goes on clothing or other fabrics, lasts 6 weeks or 6 washings. Do it before the trip while you are not wearing the clothing; hang items to dry. Don't forget to treat your hat and a bandanna or two. Sawyer also makes excellent products for use on skin.

RE: Tell Me I am Crazy... Or Not...

All of the above thoughts plus - if she works at the park and you at your job, will you two have the same days off?

RE: Is there a folding table or bench that will work for me?

I often take nap breaks inside the RV while on the road. Your van has a bed, right? Just lie on that and open the windows if you want to feel outdoors. No extra item to shop for, spend money on, and find a place to store.

RE: Total knee replacement

Not a fifth wheel owner, but I have two replaced knees and so will chime in anyway. Expect to be asked, if you have not been already, how many stairs you have in your normal living area. The physical therapists at the hospital will probably make you go up/down that many stairs before you go home. Hopefully, your stairs have a sturdy rail or assist handle. Expect to need that for a while.

RE: olde timers help me out !

We towed our 15 foot TT all over the US in the late 1960's with a 6-cylinder 3-speed 1960 Ford sedan that was probably worth way less than $1000. Gas was 25 cents a gallon by the late 60's. No air conditioning in car or TT. TT had ice box, hand water pump, and no toilet facilities. We had fun anyway!

RE: Sequoia National Park?

According to the NPS website, Mineral King area campgrounds don't allow RV's. I'm obviously missing something... Right. No RV's in the MK campgrounds. I guess a small one could drive up for the day and then back. About a zillion twisty-turnies on that road, I hear.
