RE: Just released my first YouTube video

Great photos, very enjoyable music, especially your Missing Montana song. Makes me want to fire up the Tiger and hit the road! The only suggestion for improvement that comes to mind is to show brief captions saying which photo is where. Thanks for all of the work you put into this video and your ramblin' maps.

RE: Are there travel trailers built to full time in?

I've heard of something called "destination trailers." Not sure how those might be different from regular TT's or park models, but you might look around.

RE: RVing With Quadriplegia

Take a look at Rolling in an RV. There is a section on how they modified their RV. Most of the blog is devoted to evaluating the accessibility of places visited along the way, which will come in handy once you and your wife get on the road again.

RE: 12 Volt freezer? Is this an option?

I have a portable Dometic CDF-11, the smallest size they make, about $350 from Amazon. It has been a great addition to my travel kitchen. Pro points: cools quickly and stays cold for many hours even if turned off, uses very little power, works on 12V or 110V, has automatic shutoff for low battery (several setting options on this) Con points: It does not seem to want to cool to a temperature more than 50 degrees colder than ambient temperature. Very tiny capacity; make sure that your desired contents will fit. If you don't need a freezer often, I agree with the idea of a very good ice chest plus dry ice. Expedition Portal had a good review article on portable frig-freezers about a year ago. https://expeditionportal.com/buyers-guide-portable-fridge-freezers/

RE: Cpap and camping

IP22? I cannot locate such a model. Double-check, then look at the Philips website or someplace such as CPAP.com to see if there is a 12V cord available. I have a Philips and can use its 12V cord in the RV. I did use it once with a small portable inverter and that worked OK.

RE: Whazoo goes Gramping

This may be your best trip report ever! Happy family, beautiful country, dogs, and several possible entries for the Truck Camper Magazine annual calendar photo contest. Thanks for sharing.

RE: Recommend a cargo net for overhead bunk?

To contain small children so they could not roll out of an overhead bunk, we used a standard closet pole, attaching mounts for it at each end of bunk wall. We used some sort of fishing net with maybe .5 inch mesh for the curtain part, threading the closet pole through a pocket sewn across top of netting.

RE: White Mountains, CA dispersed camping

Climb high, sleep low. Of course, low is a problem in this area. Get too low, and you are on DWP land, no camping. From the Inyo NF website today: "Dispersed camping is not allowed in the following areas: Horseshoe Meadow, Onion Valley, Big Pine Creek, Bishop Creek, Rock Creek, McGee Creek, Convict Lake, Mammoth Lakes, Reds Meadow Valley, June Lakes Loop, Lee Vining Canyon, Lundy Canyon, Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest, and any research area." https://www.fs.usda.gov/activity/inyo/recreation/camping-cabins/?recid=20228&actid=34 Best wishes for a safe and legal trip!

RE: Tent only camping

I recently made a bunch of reservations for a trip to California state parks. Many of their sites are "Tent Only." I've also seen this at USFS camps, where tents get the nice shady sites by the stream and RV's are out in the field in the hot sun, not exceptions for small RV's. I was asked by rangers to leave groups I camped with at two California national parks because park policy was absolutely no RV's at group sites; I had to buy a site elsewhere and walk back to the group site to be with my friends. The other side of the issue is that my tent camping family members are often not allowed to camp with me in the RV sites. Some RV parks do not allow tents at all. Can't we all just get along? The issue is apparently not vehicle size, it is vehicle type. The solution of carrying a small tent in your small RV and pitching it at the Tents Only site is apparently not acceptable in these places. KOA's have let me camp in their tent areas. I cannot remember whether they say Tents Only or whether they are just designated as primitive or no hookup sites.

RE: Travado

Travato. You have spell it right or the computer may not recognize it. For info, see Winnebago website (specs, owner manuals). There is a very active Facebook group for Travato owners & wannabe owners.

RE: Grassy Flat vs Panther Flat USFS Campground -- Calif.

There are a few photos of Panther Flat on Campendium, which lists max length as 40 feet. One of the photos shows a fair-sized Airstream. I've not been there. When I visited the Gasquet area some years ago, I boondocked in a spot that would be inaccessible to a 32 foot TT.

RE: Airing up after sandy roads: a decent inflator from Costco

I am also in the do-not-air-down crowd. Doesn't the compressor have to work much harder to inflate a tire which is in use as opposed to inflating a spare? What I am getting at is was this a fair test of the inflator?

RE: Tow/Haul on Truck

I use it to hold a steady speed when going downhill on high-speed roads. We have a lot of mountain grades here in SoCal - The Grapevine on I-5, Cajon Pass on I-15, Mountain Springs Grade on I-8. With tow haul, I can do them at safe speeds with just that initial tap on the brakes to engage the tow-haul.

RE: Patching roof on a northern lite.

Perhaps the best/fastest way to find your answer is to contact Northern Lite. There is contact page on their website: http://www.northern-lite.com/contact_northern_lite_camper_sales.php Won't you have to replace the AC's 110V wiring with 12V for the Fantastic Fan? The factory might have suggestions for that.

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.
