RE: And here I thought I had out run the snow...

Just don't even think about trying to get any off the roof!

RE: Foggy Lenses

I used a 3M Headlight Restoration kit on my old Saturn's lenses. It worked fine. Have been putting off doing the RV, but it is on the list.

RE: Suspicions confirmed: the Lance 650 is a hit

Yes, decent sized tanks. But space for only one battery, although I guess you could use a Hidden Power bracket. The Lance brochure shows the 650 as 14 inches taller than the 865. ??? Probable adverse MPG effect and also it might become a collector of tree attacks on those backroads you love so much. Brochure also shows that the all-weather 4 Season package is not an option on this model, although it is for all of the others. Is there a perfect Lance? Perhaps, but you have to consider all of your criteria carefully.

RE: Won't someone please make rugged small trailers??

Sadly, RV's keep getting larger and larger. I'd like to go back to the days of my old 17 foot Class C. Or the 15 foot TT with hand water pump and propane lights... But, reality being what it is, the market is small for what you want. Maybe the various small fiberglass "egg" trailers. Perhaps the upcoming Airstream Nest? https://www.airstream.com/nest/ Of find someone to build you a clone of your current TT?

RE: San Diego to Borrego Palm Canyon

As a former Chula Vista resident, I usually went to Borrego Springs via this route: to El Cajon on the freeway - then Hwy 67 through Ramona - left on 79 at Santa Ysabel - right on S2 - left on S22 through Ranchita. This route involves a lot of twisty 2-lane and the big Montezuma Grade down the hill into Borrego Springs. I had memorized every turnout along the way! My truck with a sturdy Allison transmission and tap-shift mode did fine. Gear down down down for that hill! If you want to avoid Montezuma Grade, stay on S2 through San Felipe Valley, turn left at Scissors Crossing (Hwy 78 junction), then left again on Borrego Springs Road and go into town that way. Folks who drive at unsafely high speed are often encountered on Hwy 78 in this area. There pretty much is no totally easy totally safe way into Borrego Springs. You will have mountains, you will have 2-lane roads. Stay safe. The reward of being there makes the journey worthwhile.

RE: Looking at a 1961 Boles Aero

For inspiration, go to Google home page. Click Images. Search for "boles aero trailer". Lots of nice interior shots. There is also a BA info page with many links at the Tin Can Tourists website. https://www.tincantourists.com/wiki/doku.php?id=boles-aero

RE: Playing guitars with new people while camping?

California State Parks have a policy that sound should not be audible beyond the boundaries of your own site. Not guitars, not voices, not media devices.

RE: How do you deal with trash?

First thing is to produce less trash. Food packaged in pouches instead of cans or whatever. I hang a plastic trash bag on the toilet paper holder. I had planned that I would gather up a bag of trash from the wild every day as my good deed to the world or something. Even bought one of those picker-upper tools. Quit after only a few days when I realized that I had no place to put the trash. And no, I never burn my trash.

RE: Corp lakes access page?

There is a national clickable map for COE districts at http://www.usace.army.mil/Locations.aspx Some, such as the Sacramento District, have clickable links to each lake, including camping info if any. Some don't. I did not try them all. The link for reservations sends you to the main page of Recreation.gov, where it seems like you have to know the name of the lake or facility in order to get any info. This is definitely NOT the high quality of service we are used to for the COE website! Here's hoping they fix it soon. I have recently had trouble with the BLM sites, too. Perhaps this is some government security issue?

RE: Newbie Looking at Class C 1999 Minnie

The Winnebago website has info on the 1999 Minnie Winnie. Product literature, parts catalog, wiring diagrams, etc. Choose your year and model in the search boxes. https://winnebagoind.com/product-resources/product-information I'm not sure if RV's even had stove pilots at that time. My 2006 does not; I light it with a match. Newer stoves have electric igniters, not pilots.

RE: My girlfriend wishes to go to college

I am retired college professor who has done some teaching online. Definitely she should choose an accredited institution. A regional accreditation agency is best. I served on several accreditation teams for The American Association of Schools and Colleges and am quite certain that any institution accredited by them has undergone rigorous examination by experts in their fields. She should expect online courses to be as rigorous as face-to-face courses. She should expect interaction with the instructor and with fellow students. There will be assignments and exams. There may be videos or audio files for her to stream or download. My colleagues and I even held live online office hours at scheduled times. She should have a good computer and good skills with it. She needs to be familiar with various file formats. She should not expect anyone to buy "the dog ate my internet" excuses. One list of online universities is here: http://www.guidetoonlineschools.com/online-schools I don't know anything about this list, but it is searchable by field of study and it shows accrediting agencies with links to them.

RE: Tiger Owners: Full-Timing in a Tiger?

Tiger bed ideas, from my file of photos of other people's Tigers. If you buy a Tiger which is for sale used at the factory, they might be willing to do these or similar mods for you. Remove couch, have a twin or XL twin bed built there. http://i.imgur.com/zcSymOzl.jpg Remove part of cabover bed, put a mattress in what remains. This allows better ladder access to/from the cabover. I like the idea of having sides to hold onto. #1 http://i.imgur.com/kfcMNhfl.jpg #2 http://i.imgur.com/SndKCOUl.png

RE: Tiger Owners: Full-Timing in a Tiger?

You have to be emotionally comfortable with your chosen RV, which means it has to meet your security needs. I wanted a Class C because of security and also because of not wanting to tow back in 1991 when buying my first one. I still prefer a Class C now, after over 25 solo years and many thousands of miles and much boondocking, for the same reasons. Would I give up 4WD to get a small C? Not sure. Class B's have their own issues. They are mostly taller than my Tiger, and some are also much longer. What about ground clearance? And those tiny tanks, those huge side doors (security again), and refrigerators so low to the floor in a narrow aisle that I might have trouble bending to access them. There is no perfect RV. That includes my Tiger. I say choose what checks most of your boxes and get out there and enjoy it. We are not getting any younger!

RE: Staying in Shape to RV Longer

I also work at staying as fit as possible and applaud you for your efforts. The work is worth it, isn't it? However, I am 71 and during the past 10 years have had 2 knee replacements, a broken ankle, and a back injury. Sometimes life just throws it at you. I find that my trips have changed from drive/hike to drive/sightsee/stroll, but I am still out there, still enjoying RV travel safely. That's what matters, that we enjoy it and do so safely for ourselves and others. In addition to your personal trainer program, you might take a look at http://www.thefitrv.com/, which shows exercises specifically for issues common to RVers.

RE: Tiger Owners: Full-Timing in a Tiger?

I have found that getting from driver's seat to the living area is close to impossible for me, but the other direction is fairly easy. Gravity helps. Getting into the driver's seat is what matters most as a safety feature; I have used that feature a couple of times. The other direction is nice if it is very windy or raining so you don't want to go out and around, but I can live without it. As to the cabover bed, most Tiger owners seem to reject the factory ladder. The agile types climb up via the kitchen counter. Others use a more comfortable ladder, build steps, or whatever they can think of. I have never slept "upstairs" in my Tiger; I can get up there but am very uncomfortable about safety factors in getting down. I travel alone and am very concerned about avoiding further injuries to my aging body. I sleep on the couch bed and have logged over 500 Tiger nights so far.
