RE: TCing in the Redwoods NP

Some of that park's scenic drives say motorhomes/RVs not advised, some say prohibited. I don't know if they count your TC as an RV. You might want to check. Is length or width of the rig that bothers them? My 20 ft long 87" wide Class C was not allowed on one of the roads; I've forgotten which road that was. I do know that I contacted them with rig size data before my trip and they said no RV's period. https://www.nps.gov/redw/planyourvisit/drives.htm

RE: Choosing a service to download (not stream) tv shows?

Amazon Prime, maybe, under the "Included with Prime" option. When I look at the list on my desktop computer, it wants to stream and does not appear to offer the download option. When I look at the list on my little Amazon Fire tablet, I can download TV shows and movies. I've done that a few times and taken them on trips with me. There have a time limit: 48 hours of watching once you start, up to 30 days of availability before you start watching. After that, the file deletes itself.

RE: Mobile home park and RVing

A California mobile home park is not an HOA. It is more like an apartment building. Owned by a person or a business group. Governed by state laws, with additional policies set by the owners. The occupants rarely have any say in what is allowed unless it is one of the few parks where occupants own the land. Here, we own our houses and lease our spaces from the park owner.

RE: Mobile home park and RVing

I should add one bit to my post above: The WRITTEN rules/policies are what matters. Was the former manager ignoring the parking rules when allowing RV parking at your space? Is the new manager now going exactly by the book? Or did the new manager not yet see the part of policy which allows you to park there?

RE: Mobile home park and RVing

I live in a mobile/manufactured home park with a similar setup. When I relocated, I chose this park because it had an RV storage lot; many parks do not offer this amenity. Occupants are not allowed to keep RV's at our home spaces; RV's must be in the RV storage lot for an extra fee or be stored off-site. Occupants and guests are not allowed to park any vehicles on the streets at all. This is detailed in either this park regulations or the California Mobilehome Residency Law; the latter is revised annually and the park is required to provide you with a copy or a link to the online document. Park policy can be more restrictive than state law; think regular neighborhood vs HOA. Do I like this? Not really. I miss being able to have the RV next to the house. However, this is overall a pretty good place to live. I do not miss my noisy former neighborhood or having to take care of my former huge yard and old house. So I guess that means that the RV inconvenience balances out. There is no perfect place. There is a surprising amount of traffic within the park: residents, visitors, caregivers, gardeners, trash trucks, parcel delivery services, emergency services, etc. It would really be a hazard to park a vehicle in the street.

RE: San Francisquito Canyon Road California

Not exactly that road, but one road over - Lake Hughes Road from Antelope Valley to Castaic Lake. Wowsies! I felt like I had left the known world as the road twisted and wound through apparently uninhabited mountains for miles. Nice adventure. Road mostly in good condition when I was there last month. Steep on the Castaic Lake end; perhaps your road will be also. I'll bet that these roads attract biker and sports car groups on weekend, so keep that in mind.

RE: Wow! Come Back Toto!

Several times I have ended up someplace where it was too windy to drive safely. Best procedure for me is to point the truck nose into the wind and hunker down until the weather improves. Sometimes this means I've had to stay an extra night or two in the same spot and fortunately that has always been possible. I'm originally from San Diego. Sometimes on I-8 heading east through our mountains you could see highway signs which had been mounted on something the size of telephone poles - poles snapped, metal signs twisted and bent. Newspaper had photos of semi-trucks blown over. Warnings to high profile vehicles are serious. Please don't ignore them and try to drive on through.

RE: Place for overnighter near Los Banos Cal

There are campgrounds at the San Luis reservoir. Nice quiet remote place on a weeknight. Agreed. My favorite of the 4 campgrounds in this state recreation area is Medeiros - primitive, first come first served, some sites right at the water's edge. https://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=558

RE: Taking it all with you

Reminds me of the "Land Tug" I saw in Morro Bay a few years ago. http://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/26901717.cfm Good spotting, Tigre and Bedlam! Clearly the same rig. I take no credit for it being the same rig, because I did not even go through the CL photos and notice that Morro Bay is in them. I just remembered the rig when I saw the first photo. Yes, it has to be that same one. $30,000? You can't even find a 2006 Tiger like mine for that low a price.

RE: Leveling blocks - another use

I received some Lego-type levelers as a gift. Never used them, because I prefer my heavy-duty Camco tri-levelers. However, I am tall and have a bad back. I put a Lego block into the kitchen sink and set the dishpan on top of it. Having the dishpan higher helps reduce back pain. Now to find uses for the other blocks.

You guys are amazing! Thanks for the snowy views of some of my favorite spots.

RE: Medicine Cabinet HELP!!!! :-) :-)

two ideas: some sort of stretchy mesh fabric hooked to sides of cabinet small boxes/bins and velcro tape strips, fuzzy side of the velcro tape on the bins and loopy side stuck onto the med chest wall

RE: Easy safe? Older Folks to get in and out of overcab bed?

I can get up to the cabover bed just fine, but have problems coming down. Facing toward back of RV leaves me with nothing to hold onto. Facing toward front has my feet hunting for the ladder. I just sleep downstairs. Safer that way.

RE: TR: a few days of dry camping near Morro Bay, Calif.

That area, Point Buchon to Ragged Point, is one of my favorite places on earth. I'm glad that you swallowed your aversion to campgrounds long enough to go there and see the sights. Were you able to see critters on the Pt. Buchon hike? The last time I hiked there, a vulture was perched on a fence post near the trail and further south there were long-tailed weasels romping in the grass.

RE: Camping with teen on crutches

When I broke my ankle and was told to put zero weight on, my HMO sent a physical therapist to the house to teach me how to live with that. Also, I bought myself a knee scooter. I think they are also often for rent. Best thing ever! With it, I could stand up and move around much more freely than with crutches. If he gets one of those, but sure he keeps the speed down! After too long being immobile, the temptation is to let go, wheeeee down the hall, not good.

RE: Chasing Wildflowers..Joshua Tree National Park, Ca.

Two tortoises crossing roads...amazing. I have tried, but have never seen even one in the wild anywhere. Nice flowers, too. Thanks for sharing.

RE: 4spd vs 6spd Allison question.

My Chevy Silverado 2500 HD is a 2006, has an 8.1 and a 6-speed Allison. I think that was the last or next-to-the-last year this particular combo was offered. It is a great truck made into a great little RV. 70K miles so far, no glitches. I try not to obsess over the MPG. This vehicle is for vacation and fun, not my daily driver.

RE: Chiggers and Spiders and Ticks. Oh my.

I use various products from Sawyer, especially the time-release skin lotion and the spray which goes on your clothing. The latter lasts through several washings. You put it on the clothes while you are NOT wearing, then let them dry. Disclaimer: these have been effective against California bugs. I've heard of chiggers, not sure we have them here.

RE: Death Valley XTC 2017

Thanks for the trip report. I am adding almost all of those roads to my "Don't Ever Even Think of Going There" list.
