RE: Disneyland/Anaheim / Beach campgrounds?

Orangeland is very nice and a close drive. +1

RE: Advice on a potential purchase - Fleetwood Pace Arrow

Those are pretty nice rigs. I especially liked the fact that they have a drivers door. The wheels will be 19.5". The finishes were generally very good. Probably a workhorse chassis, which is also a plus.

RE: 1st trip in our hybrid TT! Any advice, please?

Camp in your driveway if you have to, and take notes. Try not to over pack. We have hauled stuff for thousands of miles that never left its storage location. Set up the tented portion and give it a good rain with the sprinklers. Have some seam sealer on hand, and some good caulk. Cold is one thing, but cold and wet is not fun.

RE: Oregon/California coast--best time of year?

Although we are in Astoria now, and heading across the bridge to Long Beach WA tomorrow, August and September are pretty hard to beat. Traveling south gives you the best views and turn outs. We came north through Nevada, Utah and Idaho, but will head south along the coast.

RE: Keeping cool in 95 degree heat...

X2 on setting thermostats etc for cooling before turning on the generator. That way you can control everything from the cockpit. This is extra helpful when stopping for fuel etc, where you need to turn the genny off then back on.

RE: Portable Ice maker

Why wouldn't distilled water work well? Seems like it would be the obvious choice. Distilled water is one of the only things that will corrode stainless steel. Good for you, but not good for many metals. NO it will NOT your are thinking of De-ionized water that can be corrosive to somethings My mistake, it is Di water that can be a problem.

RE: Exhaust fan on Microwave/convection oven ??

Mine vents to the inside. My fantastic fan is almost directly above the microwave/convection oven so I simply turn it on and it draws the air right out. X3

RE: inverter choice

Most residential refrigerators need a pure sine wave inverter. Most of your personal electronics will thank you as well.

RE: Anyone use a stovetop without a range hood?

Most coaches that have a microwave/convection are now set up to vent internally, so you always need to run the roof vent fan to exhaust to the outside.

RE: Trip Report: Searching for sand along the Lost Coast

My wife and I grew up on the Lost Coast, living in Arcata. I spent the first third of my life camping all over the area. It is a shame that most areas have been closed off to camping and beach running. As you found, there are not that many access points to begin with. Totally agree on what a gem Patrick's Point Park is.

RE: Removing Outside TV From Mount

On my 2016 there are 3 screws down each side and the Tv came out, plate and all. It also gives me great access to behind the sink.

RE: Building a New Dog House/Cover Over Engine Compartment

The shorter doghouse appears to be on a newer raised chassis MH. Less of the engine protruding into the floor area equals a much shorter doghouse.

RE: Class C "Tow Mode"?????

We use Tow/Haul when in the hills, and for stop and go near cities.
