RE: Campfires at campsites?

..... I checked one national forest site and they do allow 'fuel wood' permits, but they are $20. They are for up to 4 cords, like somebody wanting to haul a bunch out. I just want enough for a fire. That permit is for cutting it up and using it at home. If you are staying in a developed campground that has fire pits, you do not need a special permit, you just need to make sure of the specific rules for that campground. Most campgrounds in our neck of the woods sell small bundles of firewood for about $5 each. We bring firewood from home that was originally cut from that 4 cord permit. As far as the gathering of firewood within the various forests, there may be local regulations about same. The forests around here have changed their policies and now feel that cleaning up the understory is beneficial for getting rid of the fuels that make fighting forest fires more difficult.

RE: What a mess

BTW, we will not put glass containers in the cupboards - just because of that example.

RE: Grey water dumping

I always find these discussions comical and they always follow the same path to thread closure........ Yes, they are comical. And that common path always seems to include folks trying to compare as similar the dumping of 40 gallons of old grey tank contents between the fire pit and the picnic table with dispersing a few gallons of grey in the bushes. If we could first determine if we think grey water itself could be handled different than black tank contents, then maybe we could move forward and start discussing volume and concentration. But the discussion may never get that far because some here think that grey water should be considered hazardous, IMHO.

RE: Grey water dumping

I still see dish pan drain basins. But with the newer 40 gal grey tanks, it doesn't make sense to dump it all in one place and at one time. And especially now when people "camp" in RV parks where your neighbor is 20' away, the density of rigs makes it difficult to get the proper dilution on grey water disposal.

RE: Zoning that restricts RV use on your own land

"..... it can be argued that the RV is a work vehicle, a necessary requirement for the job, and not used as a recreational vehicle. Don't know if that line of reasoning will fly but it's all I got right now." Yeah, good look with that one. :B

RE: Zoning that restricts RV use on your own land

It appears to me that "RV use" is different than "RV storage." We use our residentially zoned property in Oregon for RV use but don't keep it there full time. We bring it in and take it out a few times a year.

RE: To drain or not to drain? Another ice chest question.

I normally drain mine since we seem to move it around a lot and it gets a bit heavy.

RE: leak life!

I get up on my roof and crawl around at the beginning of the campin season and also at the end. Except for under the AC, I can pretty much tell if an area is susceptible to water intrusion. I would attempt to stop a leak ASAP and worry about the long term effects later.

RE: Why the extra bathroom door?

The way I see it, all access circulation corridors take away from living space stuff. I have seen a dual access bath, and I saw wasted space- IF space is a consideration.

RE: Ownership rv resorts ... Are they all the same?

For a 20 year plan, that's about $300/mo. And you're staying in one place. In our RV, I would like to travel a bit for that $300.

RE: Road grade

I see a lot of folks asking about grades. I am always curious as to what is the OP's grade limit. 5 6 7 percent?

RE: Eternal bond tape or Dicor?

I would use dicor for this application. Won't say it's the best choice, but it would be my choice. :) How good of a job do you want to do? Just stop the leak? load it up with roof patch from ACE hardware. want it to last and look good? do as I suggested above. You know what? I have used both eternabond tape and dicor. They both have their advantages for specific types of situations. I use dicor at rubber roof and plastic vent connections.

RE: How is 199 from Crescent City to Grants Pass in winter

Yes 199 can be icy and have chain requirements. If I had to pick my route now, and not wait til the time comes and see if it's clear an dry, I would go north on 101 to eithere 42 or 38.

RE: Grants Pass to Reno

We take this route often: I-5, 89, 44, 36, 395. Just not in the middle of winter.

RE: Tent Stake Hack

Yes I have tripped on a tent stake. And it was because I couldn't pound it all the way in because of rocks.

RE: Exterior repair cost

........I'm just worried they'll be shocked at the price and back track. Back track on what? Sounds like they have already taken responsibility but don't want to go that route through their insurance. You could contact your insurance company. They may handle the process for you - in communicating with the HOA.
