RE: Experiences with sat phone rentals??

If you can meet your needs with texting, the Garmin Inreach is very affordable. Send and receive texts from the irridium network for a price similar to cell service. But no voice calling. Agreed, and I like my InReach. Do note that, at least on my 2-3 year old model, the InReach owner has to initiate the contact. You won't be receiving texts or emails unless in response to something you sent. I sent each of my major contacts a message and asked them to save it in an emergency folder so they would have something to "reply" to if they needed to get in touch. I agreed to check for messages at a certain time each day; much of the time my InReach is off to save its battery. I send a preset (free) message each day when I make camp, so they know I am OK.

RE: Camp Ground Navigator C/D or Software Finder????

I like AllStays because I can use it offline to get basic info. It has links to follow for more info when wifi or cell signal is available.

RE: End of the year wrap up... So how was 2017?

The year isn't over yet. It's only November. So far so good for the Tiger and me. Approaching 100 nights of camping this year, not bad for someone who isn't full-time. I'm so happy to be able to travel again after a couple of really bad years of health issues and general life issues. Desert Captain, I always appreciate your interesting and encouraging posts.

RE: Custom built overland Ram camper

Perhaps a Tiger Bengal on a Dodge chassis would be for you. Less rough looking. Private wet bath, standup height inside, big cabover bed. My 2006 Tiger has taken me on plenty of off-pavement adventures. See trip reports in the truck camper forum. No it is not a TC, it's a C.

RE: Inverter AGM questions

In answer to your question about the AGM batteries being charged by the truck: No problem if you have a heavy-duty alternator. That's what my Tiger has (Chevy 2500 HD) and it charges two Lifeline 6V AGMs in the camper part of the rig just fine whenever the truck engine runs. Thick wires. Shortest run possible. Does your plan call for some sort of battery isolator to keep the extra battery bank from draining the truck battery? It should. I cannot answer your inverter or TC questions. Sorry.

You folks crammed an amazing amount of water into 2 weeks! Thanks for sharing.

RE: truck camper 6 pak

Agree with above possibilities, except to add probably concentrate on California. Six Pacs were built here. On my recent trip along 395 between the south and Reno, I saw several Six Pacs in such good condition that I was thinking maybe they had started building them again. Checked the website. No such luck.

RE: CPAP 12 volt options

I run mine with a 12v cord sold by the manufacturer and plugged into a bayonet plug near the bed. 4 years, no problems.

RE: East coast couple looking to wander the west

In my personal experience of the West, there is no "typical" dispersed camp area. forests or deserts, good or bad roads, etc. Your possible limit to boondocking will be the size of your water and waste tanks. Where I go, sometimes there are zero facilities within miles.

RE: Results of RV tv shows

Don't forget all the people who are retiring, have no RV experience, and their dream is going full-time in a Class B with 3 giant dogs. When such folks ask me about my small RV, I tell them to build a mockup at home and try it out, or go with the dogs into the smallest bathroom in their house and live in there for a week or so. :-)

RE: Phoenix Cruiser 4x4

Going off-pavement is hard on an RV. I've been driving small 4x4 Class C's since 1991. About 150K miles so far, first one on a Toyota mini-truck chassis and the Tiger on a stock 2500 HD 4x4 chassis. At one time or another, in spite of slow speeds and careful packing, I've had every cupboard and the refrigerator eject its contents at one time or another, plus had everything fall off the cabover bed. Checking to see that cupboards and the awning are still securely attached is a regular part of trip prep. Note that I wasn't even trying to do Jeepy sorts of things when these ejections happened. 30 MPH on rough road? Hah! More like 5 PMH. I'd love to never have to drive on washboard again. When choosing an off-pavement vehicle, consider its size and weight. My Tiger is under 9.5 feet tall, 87 inches wide, 20 feet long, regular cab Chevy so shortish wheelbase. Sometimes it can barely squeeze through or under the trees and brush along the roads, and it has the scratches to prove it. I ordered my Tiger with minimal stuff on the roof (no railing, no AC, no antennas) because of this. Still, I've had the various vent caps attacked by vegetation. The fantasy is that you can go anywhere, do whatever you want. Give yourself a VERY serious reality check before you try this. I find high clearance to be much more of a necessity than 4WD, although I do use the 4WD on nearly every trip for at least a short stretch. I even used it a few weeks ago to drive the Tiger up onto a welder's rack for some tailpipe repairs. It didn't want to go up the slippery metal ramp, but 4WD took it over the bump and up with ease. OP is east coast (West Virginia) and I am sure that off-pavement there is probably different. I'm west coast and the Sierra Nevada range and deserts.

RE: Do all motorhome propane tanks refill the same way?

I've had some bad experiences, even one propane person who totally gave up. 2006 horizontal tank under the RV, difficult to reach, they cannot seem to get the fitting to attach correctly. Experienced employees at places which fill a lot of RV's are your best bet.

RE: 12v vs 6v battery question

Consider physical size of the batteries. Will they fit where your current batteries are? My 6V's are taller than my former 12V's. If the 2 group 24's do the job for you, then keep that setup.

RE: 3 way dometic fridge LP issue

Do you hear it try to spark? If no, check the igniter. And everything everyone else suggested.

RE: Cerro Alto Campground NFS- San Luis Obispo - Los Padres

Campendium has 3 reviews (none of them mine), 2 of which say it is not a place for RV's. I also did a Google search, which turned up some photos and some reviews. There was mention of poison oak and ticks, but those are everywhere in this area. I drove in there once about 5 years ago, did not like it, and left. One lane road. The camp area felt much more closed in than I like. There is no dump station. Some people like it, some do not. Have you looked at San Simeon State Park? Great place. Two different campgrounds.

RE: When and where to fill onboard propane

Don't forget safety during filling. The propane person should ask, but I find that they do not. It is your responsibility. Be sure that no pilot lights are on and no igniters can spark. I do this by turning off the refrigerator and by turning off the coach batteries at the disconnect switch.
