RE: Construction Site Speed Monitors

As soon as I see the mph sign, I peak at my dash. Always a bit lower than my actual speed. I see it as a way to slow us down, but I sure don't use that sign as a way to see if my gauges are working properly. And I never use it to slow me down......

RE: Anyone regret full-timing?

My folks had the dream of selling it all and hittin' the road. Well, that lasted a couple of years, settled in at an RV park and lived out their lives there. They had used the equity in the sale of their house to purchase the nice class A motorhome. Health issues were part of the reason as well as age.

RE: Getting all the water out winterizing the water heater

I put a small tube hose type tube to the open drain plug opening and syphoned it out.

RE: Leaving batteries connected during long term camping

Since my converter seems to over charge my batteries while on shore power, I will use my disconnect switch while in this situation for more than a simple weekend.

RE: Recommendations for Parking Surface for Diesel Pusher

I don't see any reason not to park it on gravel. If tires, or settling are an issue, you could pour a small area of concrete where the tires will rest.

RE: Interesting Montana Concept - Huge Window on Front Cap

Always got to try new things - and see what catches on.

RE: At Home Dump Station

We had public sewer clogging problems that once backed up into our house, so a few years ago I installed a cleanout near my driveway and capped it with a flapper valve. It doubles as my dump station.
korbe 10/02/15 12:55pm Truck Campers

We only connect our hose and dump when necessary - about every 3 or 4 days. For me, the sewer hose hanging off my rig and extending into a sewer hole, in direct view of my neighbors' out door living area, is not a pretty sight, IMHO. Leaving the gray tank open and connected allows the park's sewer gases to use my vent for air. I don't prefer that thought either.

RE: My over 13' rv went under a 13' clearance bridge

That would explain why my 13' 4" 5vr just cleared that overpass marked 12' 8" (actual 13' 8") Yes. I would also add that you want to keep your speed up while doing this. :B

RE: My over 13' rv went under a 13' clearance bridge

Sounds like if there is "error" it is on the side of safety. Not the other way around. Which, to me makes complete sense.

RE: Winterizeing

We don't do anything except make sure the tanks are closed off.

RE: Any common sense logic on how the pins/clips face.

With my slider hitch, I was told to keep the pins on the outside and not under the slider rail portion of the hitch.

RE: GlowStep Revolution

All right. Good job. Looks like you are holding up your end of the bargain. ;) The variable distances from finish floor to the ground that we encounter at different campgrounds, and with our door being to the rear of the axles, made the GlowStep Revolution steps not a good fit for us. But they did say they would be working on a possible future new design that would handle our situation.

RE: The joys of owning a TT.

Yes. I can understand the brittleness factor. My bathroom vent fan blades got in a wrestling match with a couple of dried leaves - and the leaves won.

RE: Garage Advice

Roads keep getting repaved and the bridge height signs do not get replaced with the correct height...plus clearance height apps do not get updated.... In our part of the country, normally prior an overlay under some sort of overpass with restricted height, the AC would be ground down and replaced without lessening the clearance. I would guess the liability of not maintaining accurate clearance heights (and signage) would be enormous.

RE: Garage Advice

You can raise the side walls up as high as you want, which would include structural engineering of the footings and wall connections. You would want to increase the height of the roll up door commensurate with the side wall height increases.

RE: 395 vs 101, north of Reno/Mendocino, late October?

I'm looking at DOT webcams for 395, but all I see are evergreens. Has no one here been on the north part of 395 or 101 lately? I don't have to decide until Monday-ish... maybe I am trying to think too far ahead? Okay. 395 north of Reno is not an area noted for fall color viewing. Sure the trees turn yellow, but just for a bit before they turn brown and fall. :)

RE: Reno/Sparks to Red Bluff, CA

Yes. If I was going from Reno to Red Bluff I would take 395 to 36. There will be a couple of times when you have to slow down for some curvey sections, but there will be no problems.

RE: Scenic and Adventerous roads around the Redwoods

If you make it down to near Trinidad, then definitely take the scenic route through Prairie Creek State Park. The old 101 highway that the new freeway bypasses, takes you through many redwood groves where you can pull off the road and visit the groves with minimal trail length. Enjoy
