RE: Have you found an app that shows BLM land / boundaries?

Not an app, but free from the BLM Surface Management Agency via GeoCommunicator. I poked around and came up with this: http://i1051.photobucket.com/albums/s439/Tiger4x4RV/sampleownershipmap.jpg When you are online, save screenshots of areas that interest you. It's what we did before there were apps. :-)

RE: Documentation for this fuse panel/controller

The manufacturer of Bounder owns the patent to the IllumaPlex. I dug around on their website for a while, found photos of many similar panels in parts department, no exact match yet. Their website says they are a phone call away. Try calling them. 1.800.509.3417.

RE: Replacing coleman ac with vented sunroof?

On a prior RV, I had a deteriorating Coleman AC unit replaced by a non-electric standard roof vent. An RV repair facility did the work for me, leaving the wiring in place in case I changed my mind. The AC required 110V. A Maxxair or Fantastic Fan runs on 12V, so you may have to rewire if you want your new vent to be electrified.

RE: incontinence/bladder control

Just stop every hour. You won't get there as quickly, but you'll get there. With an RV, you have your own facilities for that stop. You should stop often to stretch out the kinks anyway. And do see your doctor.

RE: Electric heater vs using furnace in fall?

I always carry a small electric heater when camping in winter. I usually dry camp and cannot use it then, but if things get really chilly I am free to go somewhere with an electric hookup. The electric heater is quieter than my propane furnace. I don't use either of them while I sleep. The temperature doesn't get below 30 inside and I have lots of warm bedding. My electric heater has settings for 750W and 1500W. It also has a fan and a thermostat. Plenty of heat to keep my tiny space warm.

RE: A short and not-so-sweet trip report

You and your gear survived uninjured and you visited a beautiful place, so it wasn't all bad. Were the dispersed areas in Faith Valley or down at the highway junction not open? Probably generators there, I suppose, but at least camping there is free. Thanks for sharing your trip report.

RE: Movies with RVs

My favorite is "Rolling Family." And does "The Big Bus" count?

RE: RV Park cabin camping

More thoughts: Many "tiny houses" have the bed in a loft with a steep ladder. Can you get to the bed? Also, sometimes those rental cabins are known as "park models" and they are quite common in areas where snowbirds flock.

RE: RV Park cabin camping

Many KOA's have cabins. http://koa.com/lodges-cabins-cottages/ Here in SoCal, some state parks and county parks have them also. Check the amenities: bathrooms? heat? mattresses? I'm thinking that you should reconsider motels.

RE: Where to go in April

Some California April trips I've enjoyed, good for a small C or a TC or B: Coast Ranges (between LA & Santa Cruz) Trip report & photos here: http://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/28268422.cfmhttp://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/28268422.cfm Hwy 395 side roads, Ridgecrest to Bishop.

RE: Alaskan brand truck campers--Pros and cons??

Cons include a moment in time when the top is up and the sides are not in place over the bed area. If the weather or bugs are real bad it can be a minor issue. If you want to purchase one look into the issues of holding tanks and propane storage. They are not light so a three quarter ton or one ton truck works best and they are not cheap as they will tend to flatten your wallet some. There were several vintage Alaskans in my former San Diego area neighborhood. One had been restored, the others not. All were still in at least sporadic use. On a recent trip to the Eastern Sierra, I saw a tiny one, no cabover, from 1974. I liked the idea/look of Alaskans well enough to visit their factory when I was shopping for my current RV. The reasons quoted above are the main reasons I did not purchase one. Alaskan makes a fine product, but it's not the camper for everyone.

RE: Need Owners Manual for 1985 Fleetwood Mallard Class C

If no one comes up with anything better, get yourself an old edition of a generic RV repair and maintenance manual. My recommendation is Bob Livingston's Trailer Life's RV Repair and Maintenance Manual, 1989 edition. I used it for years with my old RV, passed it on to the buyer. You want the old edition because it covers your older RV and appliances. Amazon has used copies for sale. link Another possibility is that the owner of a rig like yours is reading this and can somehow send you photos of where the drains are and such.

RE: Another Oldie but goodie. NOT MINE

Memories! I have always had a soft spot for those old chassis-mounts. Where it all began for Class C's. If you consider buying, be careful about believing the mileage stated. How many digits did the odometer display in those days? I cannot remember and it is not visible enough on the photo to tell. 97000 miles could be 297000 or 497000. Look at the paint where the driver's arm would rest. See if the foot pedal surface is worn smooth. Any way you look at it, this is an old truck. That isn't always a bad thing. Fords of that vintage were pretty easy to repair.

RE: Joshua Tree - Black Rock vs Indian Cove

I've been to both. Black Rock seemed more like an RV park almost in the back yards of local homes, or at least it did 10 years ago on my last trip there. Indian Cove is more remote. It may help your decision to take a look on satellite maps or Google Earth.

RE: Tales From the Trypt, And Assorted Short Sorties

Whazoo, Mrs. Whazoo, and the magic TC are all looking great. Amazing, considering what they've all been through. It must be the rejuvenating effects of the gorgeous AZ country. Maybe some Kryon plastic paint would help with those orange levelers? Thanks for sharing your trip!

RE: Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona?

From my trip in March, 2012, here are a couple of suggestions for remote areas where you might enjoy boondocking. Las Cienegas National Conservation Area Camping info on the webpage. Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge There are designated remote sites, I think about 100 of them! Amazing place. I also stayed some state and USFS campgrounds (Catalina, Patagonia Lake, Madera Canyon, Organ Pipe), but those might be too tame for your tastes. Do remember that the border is nearby. You may not want your camp to be viewed as a supply depot for illegal border crossers. I saw several of them, plus many Border Patrol vehicles. Here are a few photos from my trip: https://picasaweb.google.com/CVKSmith/ExploringSouthernAZMarch2012

RE: Flexible Gutters

I have used that product, or something very much like it with 3M involved, on my Tiger. I put a strip over each window, curving down at the ends. It has stayed put except for one of the curves for 9 years so far. My rig sits outside all the time, no cover. These gutters keep rain and other drips from running down the outside of my sliding windows and sometimes I can keep the windows open when it is raining.
