RE: Recycled Asphalt/ New pad for parking

If the used AC pavement has not been conditioned or graded, just stockpiled since ground up, it normally would make for a gravelly type surface material. Just oiled rock. But with some work, the material can be reused as a sub base or even pavement again.

RE: Cap Concrete Block RV Pad

I would use the thickest of the 2. And they are only as strong as the material you place them on. I would use a min. of 6" compacted base rock under the pavers.

RE: Rv park under 50k updates

Completely forgot about this venture (the previous posts). Sounds like it's still chugging along. Keep us updated. Doesn't sound like any of the previous opinions would change.

RE: Full Length Queen size beds

No pics, but the walkway around the foot of the bed went from about 2 feet wide to just about a foot with the longer bed. I put a piece of plywood on the bed frame to extend outward so the mattress wouldn't sag. and with our new setup, we don't access the underbed storage anymore. it's a pillow top and kinda heavy - but really comfy.

RE: Full Length Queen size beds

The foot of our bed was a walkway that allowed us to beef up the foundation and put in a California Queen (84"). Really makes a difference especially when our headboard is sloped inward which makes full use of the bed even more difficult.

RE: NFS campgrounds

Most of the more popular campgrounds have hosts, particularly during the peak season, in our neck of the woods. Haven't seen Ranger Dick in years. In 40 years of campin' in Forest Service Campgrounds, I have never had a reason or need to call on him.

RE: Golf car battery recommendations/ best buys in Vegas area?

I found the best price for my 6v Trojans at a golf cart storage and maintenance facility. Golf course maintenance people may stir you in the right direction.

RE: Idea: keeping fridge doors propped open during storage

We got one on those nifty "No Mold Refrigerator Door Holder" gadgets from CW. Works just fine for our setup.

RE: What to buy before picking up new 5th wheel

My very first time pulling our 5er out of the lot was stress-less for the first 1/4 mile. The brakeaway cable got hung up on the hitch, pulled away from it's slot and the rig hit the brakes during a right turn in the middle of a busy intersection. While in the intersection it took me awhile to figure what actually stopped me. I then noticed that the breakaway cable had come out of it's slot so I stood on top of my rear truck tire and reached over and plugged the cable back in. Well, as soon as I did that the 5er let off it's brakes and pulled on my truck and moved the tire that I was attempting to get off of - all while creating a traffic jam. So, don't forget toilet paper.

RE: Gas station pet peeves

When I am waiting and in the same situation, I actually get out, stretch and with a smile on my face say to the person in front, "I use diesel and these outside pumps are the only ones that have it." At that time the person understands why I am there and they seem to hurry it up a bit. I do agree with the dedicated island, but do understand why they don't.

RE: Trailer Unit without Dinette

If I had to give up either our couch or dinette for some reason, it would be the dinette. I guess TV trays at the couch will work when we would need to eat inside. Most of our campin' is spent outside and the dinette is used as a counter top.

RE: Waste water

The only way I can see sewer backing up at the cap, is if the valves aren't closing all the way AND there is fluid being put into the tanks. Has any water been used and dropped into either tank while the cap is on and in travel? If it were me, I would try and not put anything into the tanks while on the road and see if the couple of gallons are still there at the next setup. Everything should be dry - except for a couple drips.

RE: Separate Grey and Black Water Drains!

We may start to see more of this with the units getting larger and plumbing fixtures located all over the place. Only have so much distance to slope the underbelly pipes.

RE: Shoreline RV Park, Eureka California

Must be kinda on the new side. That location used to be the parking lot for Disco department store years ago. I would stay closer to each of the locations, myself. Unless you have a reason to stay in Eureka. RV parks in south Humboldt, and north is what I would do.

RE: How conveient is this

2 cents. If a topic, before being posted, can be viewed as potentially political, then most likely it is political and should not be posted. Just because the OP doesn't want it to be, or personally doesn't think it is in their mind, is irrelevant. It's like a group of people are sitting around in the living room, socializing, and one person makes a comment and immediately states that there is not going to be a discussion on what I just said, period. Then don't say it. IMHO

RE: Can RV park owners handle guest property?

I will go out on a limb here and say the monthly rate is pretty darn reasonable. The guy that Dutch mentioned is everywhere. RV parks are full of people that can't, for whatever reason, move on. And many of the parks enjoy that steady income.

RE: Remember the 1960's Hippie VW vans? No more!

Aw yes, the memories from my 1965 VW bus. Thanks for taking me back to my first camper. And, didn't have to be campin' to be enjoying the setup. ;)

RE: Simple program like Quicken

I use a basic account balance type free app for my ipad that is called "checkbook". All it does is keep track my different account balances that I create and input. I also use a free basic spread sheet app to keep track of all my recurring bills.

RE: Selling, what needs repair or replacement?

Clean it, Shine it, and price it above what you will be willing to sell it for. If the buyer balks at the tires, tell him you will put new ones on if he meets your asking price, or you will take $500 less and he buys his own new tires. AS far as caulking goes, do you have any leaks? If not leave it alone. If so caulking will only highlight the leaks. If you are offering a clean RV with no leaks it will sell. I can't wrap my head around the obsession about new batteries and tires here. When I was shopping for USED trailers to ME it WAS A GIVEN that I (AS IN MYSELF) would most likely HAVE TO BUY NEW TIRES AND BATTERY.. I never expected to find or require a seller to put new tires or battery into the deal.. Quite the opposite, I did not want to pay more than needed and I WANTED TO CONTROL WHAT BATTERIES AND TIRES I BOUGHT. If YOU the seller has a potential "buyer" balking at the deal with no new tires or battery then kindly tell them that there ARE other potential buyers WAITING to view your trailer.. You the SELLER HAVE the option to either lower the price (IE haggle) or stand firm on price and be patient provided you did not over price it in the first place. You do not have to take the first buyer/offer, there WILL be others, it does take time and patience when selling. Took 6 months for me to sell a trailer and lots of tire kickers. When I sold my last trailer, the buyer told me that what sold him on it and at my price was that he saw new tires, and he could give it to his dad as is. I didn't plan on selling it when I put on the new tires, but that was what was told to me.
