RE: Bend Oregon to Reno Nevada

For us, the journey is part of the trip. So we would take 97, 39, 139, Lookout Road, Susanville Road, 139, 36, 395.

RE: Are these items essential?

Essential? No. But desirable, yes.

RE: RV's in winter

Besides possibly being a bit cold, you could encounter some snowy road conditions. Not likely, but at that time of year, no weather is guaranteed.

RE: Survey-How do you reserve?

About 100% of our public campground reservations are done online (Reserve America or Recreation.gov) and west of the rockies. About 100% of our reservationa west of the rockies for private parks are made over the phone.

RE: My Fuel Mileage

What has surprised me is that my truck without tow was getting about 16 mpg when I had less than 50k miles on it. Now with over 100k miles, I am getting just over 20 mpg (level highway - cruise control - flat). Pleasantly surprised. And as a matter of fact, I don't even know it's back there.

RE: TT Slide Outs

Our slide takes it sweet time to extend and retract, and makes plenty of noise doing so. But it continues to work fine so I leave it alone. I do not however, load the slide with extremely heavy items until its fully extended (that would be me).

RE: Leaving hot water tank turned on

While camping, we have yet to "all of a sudden" need hot water. We know well in advance when hot water would be needed. We turn it on and off only when needed. It's a habit we've had for years. Whether on shore power or not.

RE: Question on determining campsite size?

I am not sure why this would be debatable? It's overall length. Nothing else makes any sense or stands up to reason. What? Debatable? Everything is debatable. Especially on a forum that caters to us opinionated folks. :B

RE: Well...we've reached that point

Our kids couldn't wait to be old enough to stay in tents. We never looked back.

RE: Anyone not want to retire?

I witnessed a boss count down til he retired. Very soon after he died. He didn't do anything before retirement, and was waiting for retirement to do all his bucket list stuff. I learned from watching that. Don't wait......

RE: Mt Shasta to Tahoe

Does RV friendly mean easiest? Or most scenic? I would take 89, 44, 36, 395 and 50. That is the most enjoyable in a recreational vehicle(RV). Of course I-5 and 50 will get you there lickidy split, but not nearly as enjoyable, IMHO

RE: Trash Trash Trash

My thoughts are that the folks who only go camping on the 3-day weekends are not the folks who care about the beauty of their environment. It depends on how you were raised. I make my kids do a "police call" and pick up the trash around our site before we leave after a weekend trip. I like to leave my site cleaner that what I found it.I agree, it all depends on how a person was raised and what they were taught. I totally disagree with stereotyping 3-day weekenders. Some of us have or had jobs which only allowed us to get away on holiday week-ends and we never considered trashing our site or any part of the campgrounds. :R I believe the problem is part of the generation(s) gap. Not enough people taking personal responsibility and accountability. Now those kids are having kids and the matter is only growing worse. :E We also only have an opportunity to camp during the weekends for the most part too. But we prefer not to camp during the 3-day holiday weekends because is it at those times we encounter most of the rude behavior witch includes littering.

RE: Locked? unlocked? TT and 5th wheel RV's

We lock all exterior doors and cabinets. Main reason is so they don't fly open goin down the road.

RE: Toad left in park

TV presumably a MH Thanks for proving at least ONE of my points! :B But the fact is people often dont want to hear the truth. Then just leave them alone, unless they are putting you or someone else in danger. You sure do like to mix it up, don't you.:B And on the written lists, I have found that I don't use my mind when I have a list in front of me.

RE: 12 Volt Issues

My converter will run all my 12volt items with the battery disconnected. I have a manual crank for my slide opposite the slide on the other side of the rig.

RE: Taking our new-to-us 5er out for the first time!

"- Flushed the water heater tank with that wand thing" The same wand you would rinse the black tank with?

RE: Firewood??

Most campgrounds would sell, or at least know where you could get some if they allow campfires. In our neck of the woods, everybody has a wood pile so purchasing firewood is not an issue.
