RE: Hitting bottom on driveways

If I don't go in or out at a sharp angle, I gouge the street. :-/

RE: Does anybody have the HarborFreight 2500 Inverter Gen?

Something to ponder... The chances of the generator developing 0 db. Well... you know... http://www.goalzero.com/GZnation/Info/yeticompare ;)

RE: Wireless backup camera suggestions for a 24-footer?

I did a wireless camera on my rig and regret it. The 2.4 Ghz operating frequency gets absolutely stomped-on by wifi networks, etc.

RE: Itinerary, Travel with Pets

Get some "practice" in before making a major trip. Take your pets for short runs in the RV, for example when you go get propane, etc. Make it fun. I took our Zoë on such trips when she was a puppy, and made a big happy deal out of it each time. She quickly turned into an excellent traveller, always looking forward to the next exciting place the camper takes her. Similarly, take the pets on that first shake-down trip. A 1-2 night camp to practice how to behave around the campsite, how/where to sleep at night. You all need to know how to work together to make the experience fun. :)

RE: Built in RV server?

I've stashed a Mac Mini running Plex in the rig before. Worked great!

RE: Questions on door and ride

Well, are we talking about wind noise or rattling? For me, it's loud wind noise that I have yet to alleviate. (Maybe my standards are too high.)

RE: levelers

I use Lynx to level, and stabilizer jacks after that. If I could afford to have an automatic leveling system, I'd be all over that.

RE: Rear View Camera

Instead of tapping into the power for the reverse lights, as the instructions suggested, I power mine off the running lights. So, in my coach, lights on == rear camera on. :)

RE: No routers allowed?

Multiple devices contending for the same, crowded frequencies in the ever-popular 2.4 Ghz bands will compete with each other, thus degrading performance. If my "MiFi" device is broadcasting with enough power, indeed possible, it could contend with a park's WiFi system. That's a "ay" that it happens. I see it all the time.

RE: No routers allowed?

Looks like the wifi threads are going to go the way of the 50 Amp electrical threads and contain a whole bunch of wrong information. The fact of the matter is there are only twelve frequencies that can be used for standard wifi. Within those twelve frequencies, only three are separated enough to be completely interference free from the others (i.e channel 4 and channel 5 do overlap). Everyone's private router will send out a signal that will overlap and interfere with other people's wifi systems. The greater the interference, the more likely the signal will actually bump off a connection. It appears the park is trying to solve an interference problem, and it is equally clear that people aren't going to like the solution. Therefore, it appears the park has a lose/lose situation. They get to choose between having wifi problems or upsetting people who think they are being mistreated because they don't understand the working of a wifi network. They should consider dropping the rule, because it is also obvious no one is going to follow it, so they will still have the problem and a thread like this to further damage their business. Sometimes it is just easier to let the monkeys run the zoo and live with the results. This ^^ is one of (if not the) most accurate responses here.

RE: Trip

Well, if you watch where you are going, you won't trip. Glad I could help! ;)

RE: Quinoa

I cook it and use it the same way I do rice. In fact, I often mix it with brown rice when cooking and use as a side dish. Adding it to a tuna salad recipe is also very delicious.

RE: Stabilizer jack(s) - repair or replace/upgrade

This appears to be similar what is installed in my bumper. http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41HSlDi6DfL._SX385_.jpg However, mine had mounting plates on the side to install inside the bumper. This looks like it's meant to bolt up underneath the frame. Still vacillating between replacing the jack or going with a fresh scissor jack set of four, assuming I can find 4 places to mount under my chassis.

RE: Grill Options

I have the Coleman Roadtrip (I think the LXX version) and I'm less pleased with it than I expected. The scissor stand is fantastic, and I like that I can swap in a grate to use one or both burners as a stove. Set-up and tear-dow/storage is quick and easy. Where it falls down for me is in the low lid and the fact that I cannot get it to get below about 320º F. It also get dirty inside very easily, causing constant flare-ups. The previous grill was a ~$40 table-top rig from Wal*Mart; we got years out of that thing and I think I may go back to it. Really. My dad has two Weber Qs. They seem okay, but if I ever went that route I'd be sure to get the largest model.

RE: Rock my RV!!!!

I'd continue to watch it if it were more like an episode of Holmes on Homes. "Mike Holmes on Motor Homes", perhaps? Oh, I'd be all over that! :) :C

RE: Engine Monitor System for Ford V10?

One thing I should note: WiFi signals (such as those broadcast from the KiWi) and my wireless rear camera do NOT get along! The camera will lose out. :(

RE: Engine Monitor System for Ford V10?

I have the first generation of the PLX Devices Kiwi sending data to my iPhone or iPad via the DashCommand app. It's handy to watch MPG histograms and fuel-dump rates. I can adjust my driving to save $$$ on gasoline. I'm not saying this is or is not the best solution, but it works for me. :)

RE: Class C - Towing Mini Cooper

Mountain Roads?????? Being that I'd never been in the Black Hills, I came here seeking input/advice from fellow campers. Contrary to what your mocking might suggest, I discovered there are a few steep and/or tight roads in that area that RVers with Toads might want to know about.
